Colour Combo Blog Hop - May

Welcome to my first hop with Colour Combo Blog Hop.
I am so excited to be a part of colour challenges as they
make you use colours you wouldn't normally use together.
There are 8 including myself hopping today, so buckle up
and get ready for the colour ride of your life...
Hope you are inspired by this colour combination...If so give it a try.
You may have started with me or you may have
just joined me from Tracey Lewis's blog

 Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach are all colours that are I use regularly
BUT not very often together.
  Wonderful colours aren't they?
Peekaboo Peach is leaving our colour collection at the end of May...
Little bit sad about that BUT don't worry there are plenty of new ones to replace it.

So I was at a loss what to make until I saw the inspiration from this picture
in the current catalogue PG 131, sitting side by side I knew it would work.
Where does your inspiration come from?
Then I started looking at designs and found one
in the soon to be released catalogue...I can't show you the inside of the catalogue yet,
BUT if you are Demo you can see it on
PG 19, if you are a customer the
New Annual Catalogue will go
LIVE June 1.

Sorry that the photo colour is a bit off today we have a gloomy day,
and that you cannot really see the texture on the background layer.
 Full Instructions on how to make my card
Step 1 Cut Whisper White Thick cardstock to 10.5cm x 29.6cm - Score at 14.8cm
to create your card base.
Step 2 Cut Peekaboo Peach cardstock to 10cm x 14.3cm.
Step 3 Emboss Peekaboo Peach layer inside Basket Weave (TIEF)
Textured Impressions Embossing Folder through your Big Shot
Step 4 Die cut 4 leaves from Flourish Thinlits (largest leaf die)
Step 5 Adhere leaves
down each side of your embossed layer,
now adhere Peekaboo Peach embossed layer to card base
Step 6 Cut Pool Party 9.75cm x 10.5cm
Step 7 Stamp Flourish in Pool Party Ink onto Pool Party Cardstock
Step 8  Cut out some Peekaboo Peach flowers to put on your stamped image
Step 9 Add dimensionals to the bottom of the flowers, adhere to Pool Party layer.
Step 10 Add dimensionals to the back of Pool Party layer and
adhere to Peekaboo Peach Embossed layer
Step 11 Punch a Pear Pizzazz shape from Tailored Tag Punch
Step 12 Punch a Peekaboo Peach shape from Tailored Tag Punch
cut this in half diagonally.
Step 13 Adhere the Peekaboo Peach to the back of the Pear Pizzazz to create a small border at the top and do the same at the bottom

Step 14 Add dimensionals to back adhere to centre of Pool Party layer.
Step 15 Cut a piece of matching ribbon 11cm, adhere that to the Tailored Tag piece

Step 16 Cut a 2.5cm x 9.5cm Whisper White cardstock strip, stamp your sentiment
Step 17 Using the Banner Triple punch cut your arrows to form your banner.
Step 18 Adhere this banner over the top of your ribbon.
This is what your card should look like... Hope you like it!!!
I just whipped up a quick card using the Babywipe Technique
and these 3 colours...OMG!!! These colours look AMAZING together.
You simply add drops of re-inkers onto a folded baby wipe and using any stamp
you create your own coloured impression.  Added some leftover pieces from the
above card and YAY!!! another finished card... I think I will give these to my team <3
