Color Fusers Blog Hop: September 2017

Happy Labor Day weekend!!

Hope you are enjoying your final weekend of summer festivities… well, technically we have a few more weeks, but I always see Labor Day as the end cap to summer.

This month’s color combination was awesome!!  Very cheerful.

It led me to create a couple simple birthday cards that required NO STAMPING.  NO INK.  What to the what?!?!?

Stampin’ Up has some great die cuts and punches, and that’s what I used to create these two simple cards.  The Happy Birthday message from the happy birthday thinlits die (#143700) is simple and elegant.

For the striped card, I cut strips of card stock into 1.25″ x 4″ and they fit evenly on a standard 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base.

The balloon card is a bit more whimsical and I used dimensionals to raise a couple of the balloons I cut out using the balloon bouquet punch (#140609).

Please be sure to check out the rest of this team’s fantastic creations!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: August 2017

It’s the August hop!

Where has this summer gone?!?!?  How is it August already?  Soon we’ll be back in school, sipping apple cider, and wearing sweaters again….

But, for now we have this beautiful  assortment of colors to play with.

Very summery with a nice contrasting black and smoky slate.

I just love The Little Piggy stamp set.  So cheerful and sweet.

I water colored the pig in powder pink.  The flower is berry burst.  I accented with the 1/2″ finely woven ribbon in both berry burst and powder pink.  What a fun card to send to someone you love and cheer up their day.

Have a wonderful day!!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: July 2017

Another first Monday of the month, another Color Fusers Blog Hop!

This month we used Dapper Denim, Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White.

To showcase the colors, I used the You Move Me stamp set and coordinating Move Me thinlits.  I love that the detail of the butterfly is separate from the base, so you can use two colors.

I adhered the butterfly with dimensionals to give it a little lift, but let’s be honest, I ALWAYS use dimensionals on my projects!

I added the lemon lime twist ombre ribbon, which is B-E-A-UTIFUL!!

Well, thank you for stopping by!  Be sure to visit all the other creative demonstrators amazing projects!

 

Color Fusers Blog Hop: June 2017

After a short break, we are back!

The colors this month are amazing!  These are definitely colors I use a lot in my creations.

To showcase these colors, I used two sets from the new annual catalog.

First I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set with coordinating Happy Birthday thinlits die.

What a versatile set!  You can use the balloons or add a feminine touch with the flowers.  Seriously,  I just started stamping flowers and could’ve done this for hours making different patterns.

Next up, I used the In the City hostess set.

What a fun set!  So many options with all the different building shapes….

Color Fusers Blog Hop: March 2017

Welcome back to the Color Fusers Blog Hop!

This month we are showcasing Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder & Wild Wasabi.

I used the Custom Tee, coordinating T-shirt Builder framelits & Tie Dyed sets to create my card this month.

The sentiment is from Lift Me Up stamp set.  All items can be found in Stampin’ Up’s Occasions catalog, which is available until May 2017.

The card base is Mint Macaron cardstock, with Peekaboo Peach DSP and Wild Wasabi DSP cut out using the Sweetheart punch.

I even did fun thing with the DSP, highlighting the word love…

This card would be great for an anniversary or newlyweds.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: February 2017

Hello and welcome back to the Color Fusers blog hop!!

 

I have to say I had so much fun making my project for this month’s hop.  As you know, January through March are Sale-a-bration months with Stampin’ Up!  What is Sale-a-bration you ask?  It’s time to earn FREE products with every $50 purchase.  One of those products this year is the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper.  It is designed for coloring and is awesome to use with the Watercolor Pencils from the latest Occasions catalog.

I then used my Paper Snips to cut out the watercolored image. For the spots within the flowers I used a paper piercing pad and the edge of my snips to cut those sections out.

I then attached the cut out image to the card front using dimensionals.  If you’re like me and you save the trim, it makes for great smaller pieces that fit behind smaller paper cut outs.

Well, here is the final project —

I used calypso coral for the base of the flower, bermuda bay for the stems, early espresso for the flower center, and peekaboo peach for flower petals.

Here is the inside of the card —

Well, hope you enjoyed the tutorial and are now inspired to get going on your watercoloring!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: January 2017

Happy New Year!!

The color fusers blog hop is back!

Love this color combo.  To me it has an 80’s retro feel, so with this in mind I used the Custom Tee and Designer Tee stamps sets to display it, along with the T-Shirt Builder Framelits (available in the 2017 Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration catalog — available January 4th).

As we head into the new year, many of us have our new goals, resolutions, and plans.  Consider this card your inspiration and encouragement, that you CAN and WILL succeed this year.

Speaking of inspiration… check out the rest of the team’s awesome creations:

Color Fusers Blog Hop: September 2016 – Part 2

Here we are again!

September Color Fusers

To showcase this month’s beautiful array of colors I have used the Made with Love stamp set and the gift bag punch board.

img_6157-v3

I recently used the gift bag punch board for treat bags for my daughters’ birthday party, and it was so easy to use.  It inspired me to make these adorable baby shower treat bags.

img_6170-v3

The bags are crumb cake and cut at 10″ x 4″.  I used the Baby’s First Framelits Dies to cut out the onesie.

Next up, I created a card combining the Made with Love set and Baby’s First Framelits.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: September 2016 – Part 1

Hello!  Welcome back to the awesome and amazing Color Fusers Blog Hop!!

September Color Fusers

This month we will be featuring Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry & Sweet Sugarplum.

**Be sure to check out links to the rest of the team’s amazing creations at end of this post!!**

To showcase this charming collection of colors, I will be using the  Jar of Love photopolymer bundle.  I had so much fun making my cards!

IMG_6118 v3

Perhaps slightly influenced by celebrating my 9th wedding anniversary over the weekend, I had love on the mind…

The first card features the shaker card technique.  I used the confetti hearts punch to fill my jar with hearts and the fine tip glue pen to adhere the overflowing hearts on the outside of the jar.  The jar cap was created using the embossing technique with copper embossing powder.  Here is a closer look at the card –

IMG_6112 v3

The second card continues with the love theme.  However, I filled the jar, which was stamped using the rich razzleberry ombre stamp pad, with hearts using the Everyday Jars framelits from the bundle.  The cover features the reverse embossing technique, using the white embossing powder and flirty flamingo applied with the sponge brayer.

I hope my creations have filled your day with some heart-filled joy.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: August 2016 – Part 2

The Color Fuse team is back!! 
August Color Fusers
The first and third Monday of every month we will be demonstrating color combinations.
This month the colors are Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate & Watermelon Wonder.
To showcase these colors I have used the Hearts & Stars Decorative Mask.  Such a fun tool to use and play with color combos.
IMG_5533 v3
I added a cute little owl, made using the Playful Pals stamp set and Pyramid Pals thinlits. The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.  The heart was created using the sweetheart punch, and the sentiment frame in cherry cobbler was made using the triple banner punch.
IMG_5523 v3
It’d be a great card to give for an anniversary, or just for fun as a loving reminder….
 One quick tip I learned while creating this card…
Decorative Mask Tip
Do not twist the sponge dauber while applying ink because the ink will leak under the mask.
