I was a little stumped about what to share with you this week during my weekly Facebook Live, so I had this idea, and I held up these 3 colors of New In Color Cardstock on Tuesday during my team weekly live video, and I asked them if they thought these 3 colors would look good with the Pansy Patch flower dies? My Luv 2 Stamp Group gave me encouragement and said YES, try it.. so I did!!
I wanted to try Parakeet Party, Starry Sky and Orchid Oasis with the Pansies. I also added Daffodil Delight.
If you missed the live video, be sure to catch up by watching the replay at the bottom of this post!
Above: These are the Pansy Patch dies that I showed on the video, and they make the flowers shown above.
Below: My Stampin’ Up! Color Combo for my Pansy Patch flower cards.
Rather than a plain background, I grabbed my Butterflies & Flowers masks, a Blending Brush and my Orchid Oasis ink and created a very soft background. I layered my scalloped contour die on top, then added the pansies. Of course I flicked Wink of Stella on the flowers for some glitz!
After putting together a couple of pansies, I discovered that adding some ink blending with Blending Brushes to the cardstock before assembling them gives them some added dimension.
Check out the difference on the 2 flowers below. LEFT & TOP: with ink blending, RIGHT: without.
If you watched the video, you saw me also create this card:
Hope you like these birthday card ideas. I think this color combo turned out AMAZING!
