It’s Sunday and time for a color challenge over at the Paper Players. Ann chose Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight. These are three vibrant colors with lots of deep tones. They make a great combination.
For my inspiration card, I chose to go with Stampin’ Up!’s Garden Wishes Bundle.
My card is a simple A-2 white card base with a layer of Misty Moonlight which would serve as the backdrop for the rest of my design. I chose a subtle Bumblebee patterned paper from the Dandy Garden DSP stack. Not sure where to go from there, I took a look at the Dandy Wishes Dies and found my match. I die cut a white flower image that matched the pattern in the Designer Series Paper. Now I had a “pattern repeat” in my design so I knew the rest would be easy.
My only thought was to keep a good color balance. I had a good amount of Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight so I had to work on adding some Blackberry Bliss. The “Gallon-Quart-Pint” color design rule came to mind. Now that I had a “gallon” of Bumblebee and a “quart” of Misty Moonlight, I had to keep Blackberry Bliss to a “pint”.
I decided to practice my fussy cutting and hand cut the dragonfly image from some patterned paper. The little Blackberry Bliss die cut flower helped me balance the Blackberry Bliss as did stamping my sentiment in Blackberry Bliss.
So, grab some cardstock, add a few layers and a cropped image or two and join us over at the Paper Player’s Color Challenge this week. Be sure to take a look at the Design Team’s beautiful inspiration.
These colors make me happy. I couldn’t help but smile when I saw this card.
They are a cool combination. Thank you, Monica. See you Friday!
So pretty…. it’s a lovely, simple design but those dies make it look really snazzy! I just love that Bumblebee background DSP….your flower and dragonfly really stand out against it! And the sentiment is perfect!
Thank you LeAnne. I love that die, too! Be well. See you in the Galleries 🙂 !
Such a cheery card, Debbie! Your “Gallon-Quart-Pint” rule was executed perfectly. I love the placement of the resin dot accents, and this sentiment is one of my new favorites. Thank you for rocking my color challenge this week!
Hi Ann. Thank you. That rule always comes to mind when I’m working with colors! Loved your challenge this week. Am having so much fun designing with you all.
This is fabulous! I love the way you used the color combo and sentiment is fabulous! ! That dandy wishes die is amazing! I might need to get that one. Your card makes me long for warmer days!
Hi Claire! Thank you. I love that die and I’m sure I’m going to put a lot of mileage on it. Don’t you love being enabled!! See you in the galleries.
I think I might be the only one who didn’t get the Dandy Garden DSP! Your card is lovely and I’m so impressed with your fussy cut dragonfly! Super steady hands!! Have a great week!
Hi Amanda! thank you much. The Dandy Garden DSP is beautiful. Lots of versatile patterns. Thank you for your kind words always.
This is beautiful Debby and I think I may have missed the memo about using dragonflies…Just kidding of course. I think you have done a great job with the colors andy layout this week! Have a great day!
Hi Nancy, thank you for your kindness always. I didn’t get the memo either, but I sure was surprised!!
So bright and cheerful! Love the pretty layers and the dragon fly…makes me think of warmer times. Can’t wait for spring this year!!! Have a great day!
Hi Laurie! Thank you for your kindness. I’m looking forward to some warmer weather also.
A great make with these papers Debbie, which I am finding a challenge to work with! Love the sunny, dandelion panel and that sentiment is a great one too. Off to pin!!
Hi Joanne, you are so sweet. Thank you. This DSP is a bit challenging, I agree but it keeps our skills sharp. There’s always a silver lining!
So pretty, Debbie! You totally sold me on that dandelion bundle, too. Love the way you featured the layers on your layout, too.
These colors are just amazing together!
