Color Fusers Blog Hop: July 2016 - Part 1

Today I'll be sharing a card made with one of my favorite bundles in the New Stampin' Up! catalog, the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and Flourish Thinlits. It also includes two of my favorite colors from the 2016 - 2018 In-Color collection.

One of the best things about stamping and paper crafting is getting to play with lots of color. So, when I heard about the formation of the Color Fusers Blog Hop Team, I just had to get involved! As you may have guessed the theme for this group will be to share projects made with a specific color scheme and this month the colors we'll be playing with are, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Cucumber Crush. This is a fabulous, happy color sheme that just seems perfect for summer inspired projects. I can't wait to see all the projects shared by the other demonstrators on the team.

So... I hope you'll play along by checking out every blog, so you don't miss out on any of these fun creations. Here is the color scheme for the posts today and for the blog hop in two weeks.

Cucumber Crush, Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach

This was one of the cards participants made at my New Catalog Premier Party. It's a very simple design but the multiple layers for matting, the use of dimensionals in a few places and finally the lovely, delicate floral cut outs make this a special, happy card. I simply love these colors and this layout!

Below you can see a close up of the flowers cut out with the Flourish Thinlits. I am in love with this set of thinlits and will be sharing lots more samples in the future! This photo also allows you to see the raised layers a bit better. I have dimensionals behind the Cucumber Crush and Flirty Flamingo backings. Also peeking out on either side of the focal is a piece of the PeekaBoo Peach, In-Color designer paper, in the floral pattern. I think this paper really complements the focal design.

Thanks for stopping by! There is a complete list of supplies at the end of this post with links to my online store. If you do not already have a demonstrator and would like to purchase product, please know that I am here to help and am available for any questions you might have.

I hope you've enjoyed this post and will continue on to the next blog. I'm sure Patty has something awesome to share with you!
