Color Fusers Blog Hop: February 2017

Welcome to the February Color Fusers Blog Hop! Color, Colour, Color Colour... no matter how you spell it or what colors used I LOVE COLOR and in truth... it's COLOR that brought me to paper crafting (and some awesome fun people too)! When I first started paper crafting I started dreaming about different color combos, layouts and stamped images. I kid you not! This is how it all began.

It's so awesome to be a part of the Color Fusers Team because I love experimenting with different color combinations! So here's the color combo for this months BLOG HOP:

So today I'm featuring the Delicate Details Stamp Set with three of the four colors from the graphic above; Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral and Early Espresso.

Some Details:

  • I started by stamping with Versamark on both edges of my Watercolor Paper using the same lace image.
  • Then I worked my way toward the center, spacing the other images evenly.
  • White Embossing Powder was then used to heat emboss.
By the way, I tested out the spacing first on a piece of scratch paper.

  • After all the images were heat embossed I sprayed the surface of the Watercolor Paper with a little bit of water to cover the whole surface.
  • An Aquapainter and Reinkers were used to color over the embossed images.
  • The focal piece is attached to a piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock and is then attached toward the top of a Whisper White panel, measuring 3-3/4" x 5". This will leave space at the bottom to attach the small stamped strip.

  • The strip along the bottom measures 3/8" x 4-5/8" and is stamped with Early Espresso Ink. This strip is then attached with glue dots.
  • The Whisper White panel measuring 3-3/4" x 5" is attached with Stampin' Dimensionals to the card body.
By the way, the Delicate Details Stamp Set is FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration! It's one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items. I just love these images! A complete supply list is included at the end of this post.
