Welcome to the second part of the August Blog Hops with the Color Fusers Design Team! This month we are featuring a super gorgeous color combination of Cherry Cobbler, Watermelon Wonder and Smokey Slate. Be sure to click on the links below to visit all the blogs for tons of fabulous inspiration!
I went with my favorite style of the moment, CLEAN AND SIMPLE! A perfect stamp to do this with is the new SUNSHINE SAYINGS.
I used the coordinating thinlits to create a clean look in just 10 minutes!
Love the whimsical look of these thinlits! I went with Smokey Slate for my card base to the Watermelon Wonder heart and Cherry Cobbler sentiment would pop against it. Extra stamping was required to complete the sentiment. I added in “& hugs” below with Basic Gray Archival Ink and embossed “sending” in white to add above. I love the different textures and colors combined together….very fun!
Give this wonderful color combination a try, it’s a keeper! Below is a list of all the Design Team members so you can visit each of them for more inspiration. Thanks so much for hopping with us today and exploring the power of color!
All of our projects will have something to do with stars. I actually have 2 cards to share today featuring the SHOOTING STAR BUNDLE! I has so much fun with this technique that I had to make more than one!
Now you can see why one wasn’t enough! I has way too much fun with this technique that I learned from Wendy Cranford. I had to change up the last bit of the process a little to use only Stampin’ Up! and it worked beautifully!
This first card features the slider die cut where the star can shoot across the sky. The galaxy watercolor technique makes the background so realistic! I used watercolor paper (can you believe this was a pure white piece of paper!) and added LOTS of color! The star was also done on watercolor paper so the colors would blend and look as beautiful as the galaxy background.
Knowing full well that one card would not be enough, I made a WHOLE PAGE of this background! Yep I just did a whole page that I could cut up into the sizes I needed. A much more efficient way to go about making this type of card. For this second card, I went with the spinner die cut and sent the world round and round!
So now I would love to know what you think! Do you love this technique as much as I do?? Would you like a tutorial?? Please leave me a comment with your opinion, I’d love to know what you think 🙂 ****I added a tutorial, thank you for all the comments! Click HERE.

I went with Basic Gray and Smokey Slate as my coordinating colors. When put together with silver, you get a fantastic metallic look. The entire marquee is completely embossed in silver. I did one on Smokey Slate and one of Basic Gray so I could cut out the arrow to pop up on dimensionals. I added embossed sentiments as well to make sure they stood out. To make the outlined sentiment bolder, I colored the letters in with markers.
Did you notice the fun polka dots?? That’s the FABULOUS FOIL DESIGNER ACETATE I talked about earlier. I love all the fun patterns and you can use the front in gold or the back in silver!
