Welcome to week 27 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is one of the Bright Family Colours: Mango Melody.

For my card, I’ve used a beautiful stamp set that works with just about any colour and is perfect for #simplestamping: Abstract Impressions.

I made this card for a very special friend of mine who is feeling a bit lost and bit left out at the moment. She loves flowers and she loves orange, so I’m hoping this card will lift her spirits!

I’m loving making these cards that get right back to basics and only use paper, ink, stamps…and okay, some linen thread, but I just love my linen thread and I really really can’t seem to make a card without it these days!

For my colour scheme, I’ve paired mango melody with granny apple green and stamped both colours off. This is a simple technique that even the beginner stamper can easily do and it immediately doubles your available range of colours!

There is one element of my card that is not beginner…I’ve stamped the sentiment on the front of the card using Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I love white heat embossing on coloured cardstock.

On the inside of the card, I’ve added the sentiment (which is just perfect for what I wanted to say) by stamping and die cutting it (with the stitched shapes framelits) on a separate piece of cardstock and then gluing it in.
