August/September Color Combo with Heather (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! Last month we stretched the challenge for two months, since I had a big family vacation planned for the summer. Well...surprise! We are going to do the same thing this month, since I am going to be traveling to Italy with a friend in September for two weeks, and that will give me extra time off to enjoy that trip!


Here is my color inspiration for this month - I was so very inspired not only by the lovely color combo in this photo...but even the pretty background design in the inspiration photo:


I started off by recreating the background using some Gouache Paints - a medium I've been loving more and more lately! I chose some colors from the color combo, and just used a brush to swipe on the colors, mixing a little here and there along the way.


Once that dried, I die cut the detail heart from True Multifaceted Heart Cutaways from white cardstock, tied some twine onto it, and then adhered it onto my background, tucking the top of the twine behind the front of that panel. I also tied a bow on the top of it, using that to hide the adhesive behind the bow.


Finished off by stamping my sentiment from Sentimental: Love on the top, and added a white scallop rectangle from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways layered behind it before mounting on a coordinating blue cardbase.


Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! 

First up - look at this GORGEOUS card by Aswini - such a lovely card, and perfect capture of the color combo as well! 


Next up, I love this little cutie from Becca! This image is one of my favs, and the fun layers make perfect use of the color combo as well!


And finally, this card by Nananas - love the soft textures with the color combo perfectly incorporated!

I have a couple of cards for you today.  

I am not sure if you are like me, but I need simple.  Having my handy ready made backgrounds are even more important now.  I made a huge batch of panels with various stencils (just use your favorites) and experimented with pastes, paints and color bursts.   When I need to make a card I then can go to my container full of them and use them as needed.  In fact because of having my backgrounds already done I was able to create these cards in the w&w storage unit.

For these cards I found a panel that I had used Ken Oliver color bursts watercolor powders on and then overlaid with Nuvo metallic pastes using the Scenery: The Leaf Effect Creative Screenings.  I cut the panel into 2 parts and then adhered them to larger panels of white cardstock before adhering them to a yellow and orange card base.  I stamped the sentiment from Wish Big with Evelin T Designs on each and that's all that was needed for some gender neutral autumnal color-inspired cards.  

 

Anyone can get out their stencils and various coloring mediums and just have fun like I did!

Hope you had an incredible time hopping!  You've come to the end of the blog hop, but there are bonus prize sponsors to visit and of course if you started here go to DeNami Design right now to start the hop!

Happy hopping,
Shay.

June/July Color Combo with Heather (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! Since I will be taking a big family trip this summer, this month's challenge will actually run through both the month's of June AND July - so you get double the time to play along!


Here is my color inspiration for this month - I adore these soft and lovely colors! Makes me think of sitting on the porch on a cool summer evening!


I started off by using the negative of the die cut from In a Word: Hi Cutaway to create my focal point sentiment. I used two shades of gray dye ink, then added some Nuvo Glimmer Paste over the top for some sparkle and shine!


I then stamped and die cut several of the florals and leaves from In Bloom: Victoria's Very Merry Flowers (gotta love a holiday set that you can use for a summery card, right?), then die cut them with the Coordinating Dies. I arranged them around my large word, then added a sprinkling of white jewels to finish off!


Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! I loved seeing everyone's take on the neutral colors - such a fun and different style of cards!

First up - this was such a unique and fun card by Nananas - it jumped out at me from the gallery with it's clean lines and fun playful design! 


Next up, I thought this was such a unique and artsy design by Sandie! Love the modern and clean lines!


And finally,  isn't this card by Maryam an absolute work of art?!?!? Such a lovely card and great take on the inspiration photo!!!


<<<RANDOM WINNER>>>

May Color Combo with Heather (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you!


Here is my color inspiration for this month - coming from a beautiful photo I found on Pinterest! To me it looked like an ink blended background - so that is the direction I went on my sample card. Can't wait to see how you all interpret it!


I masked off the bottom of a panel of white cardstock, then blended 3 colors of distress inks over the top portion: Fossilized Amber, Ripe Persimmon, and Seedless Preserves!


I also added some white splatters, then peeled off the masking tape at the bottom. Since it looked like a night sky, I colored up the adorable kitties from Purrfect with Evelin T Designs in simple Warm Gray Copic shades, and die cut them with the coordinating dies. The sentiment is a combination of Wishing You with Evelin T Designs and In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals, with part of the sentiment heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and popped up with foam adhesive. I also popped the kitties up with foam adhesive.


Finished off with a simple white frame cut with Essentials: Audrey Cutaways - one of my favorite scallop frame dies! I trimmed my inked panel small enough to layer over the top of it, then popped the entire thing on a dark gray cardbase.


Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! I loved seeing everyone's take on the neutral colors - such a fun and different style of cards!

First up - this STUNNING card by Rosali! Perfect use of neutrals - and could that little bird be any cuter?!?!?


Next up, an amazing use of super bright and soft neutrals - mostly white by Rahmat! It is hard to make a card with this much white, but she nailed it with all those lovely layers and textures - bravo!!!


Then we have this amazing card from Shona Chambers - THUD! Am I right? Elegant perfection right here folks! Beautiful work!



<<<RANDOM WINNER>>>
