Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.
Week 28 – Melon Mambo
The excitement is really growing now, as I am heading to Sydney on Friday to see all my SU friends at our OnStage event for demonstrators. This is the first time for 3 years (thanks Covid) that we will be able to be there in person, yippee. There’s nothing like getting together in a huge room with 500 fellow crafters – can you imagine the hype?!!!
Anyway, more about that next week, but for now we need to focus our minds on Melon Mambo.
The Sending Smiles Bundle is a beauty. The flowers are stamped with the aid of the Stamparatus, in Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry inks. The leaves are Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. Using a Sponge Dauber to add the Rich Razzleberry ink to the edges of the flowers as the final step, gives it a lovely tone. The same was done with the leaves and the Evening Evergreen ink.
The white stamped layer is die cut using the Deckled Rectangle dies. This is adhered to a Gold Brushed Metallic Stitched Rectangle die and this glued onto a Melon Mambo layer on the dramatic, Basic Black card base.
The ‘thanks’ is die cut in Basic Black card and Gold Brushed Metallic cardstock. Before die cutting the Gold, I remembered to add Adhesive Sheet so it can be adhered like a sticker to the black layer. This is glued to the card. Some Glossy Dots Assortment were added at the end.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for inspiration using Merry Merlot.
