Color Fusers Blog Hop: September 2016 – Part 1

Welcome to the first week of the September COLOR FUSE BLOG HOP!  Twice a month on the first and third Monday’s we’ll be bringing you inspiration through color!  September’s hops will feature four gorgeous colors.

I picked a stamp set you may not have thought of for this set of colors.

LIVE, LOVE, GROW is a favorite of mine!  I just love the sweet succulents and sentiments.  I know you would typically think of this set being in neutrals and greens, but I love the idea of throwing in a Sweet Sugarplum succulent along with the Mint Macaron plants.

To make this a beautiful but functional card, I added a birthday greeting inside along with a couple more succulents.

Let’s delve into the nitty gritty and talk about how all the colors from the challenge were used.  Obviously I love SWEET SUGARPLUM, I used it for the card base and one of the succulent plants.  It’s a great light purple that reminds me of the old Pale Plum that Stampin’ Up! had years ago when I first started stamping.  MINT MACARON comes into play with the other plants.  This pale green is such a lovely color and is a great stand out against the plum.  I added in the other two colors as accents.  FLIRTY FLAMINGO is used only with the ribbon for the inside card and the die cut “love” in my sentiment.  It works really well with the card and really adds that little bit of contrast that was needed.  Lastly, RICH RAZZLEBERRY was used with the small flowers on the largest plant.  I used the TREE BUILDER PUNCH to get the tiny flower that would work with the size plants in my terrarium.

The inside is embellished a little with the lovely plants and a fun birthday greeting that is a combination of SUNSHINE SAYINGS and LIVE,LOVE,GROW.

If you haven’t tried these MINI TREAT BAG cards, I highly encourage you to!  They are a bit smaller than a typical card so even though they are more 3D, they still fit into the Stampin’ Up! envelopes.  It’s a great way to step up you card making for the WOW factor.  If you’d like to give this style of card a try, check out the supply list below and click on any of the items you would like to order or know more about.

Live Love Grow

Clean and simple cards are such a joy to create!  A nice white card with a crisp design makes me so happy!  The sweet set LIVE,LOVE,GROW is so perfect for this style of card making.

See what I mean, a bright crisp card is good stuff!  I found my inspiration from sketch challenge FMS249 at Freshly Made Sketches.  This was such a fun sketch to work with, you can really use your imagination with this one!

It all started with SERENE SCENERY Designer Paper Stack.  I used the design that looks like wood flooring as my background strip.  The sentiment embossed in white on black really pops against this lighter color of DSP.  The embossed words were created with the awesome new set LABELER ALPHABET.  I love that there are two styles of alphabet to work with.  I was able to lay out the letters and stamp it all at once, super easy!

Live, Love, Grow

Ok, I have to start out by saying that this set is pure indulgence for me.  I fell in love with LIVE, LOVE, GROW as soon as I saw it.  A lot of the time, I look at sets for the potential of what I can make to sell or use otherwise for my business.  This set is purely for ME!  I have always loved succulents so this set is perfect!  For my first card, I went seriously clean and simple.

Isn’t the simplicity perfection!  Nothing is better than a nice crisp white card with a beautiful stamp set to showcase.

Smokey Slate is perfect for the dome and then all of the succulents are different shades of green.  It was quite refreshing to sit and stamp this card in under ten minutes!

You will definitely be seeing more of this set from me in the future!  In fact, I snuck it into my card tutorial for the upcoming AUGUST MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary.  My card set for this month is JAR OF LOVE and LIVE, LOVE, GROW coordinates with it beautifully!  How about a little sneak peek???
