Welcome to week 13 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Crumb Cake, a very useful colour from the Neutrals colour collection.
Crumb Cake is my favourite Stampin’ Up! colour because it is so incredibly versatile and it just works so well with every other colour. I like to think of it as the “goldilocks” of neutrals – not too dark, not too light … it always looks just right!
Because Crumb Cake looks so good with other colours, I rarely make cards using Crumb Cake on it’s own, however I wanted to challenge myself this week to find a way to really showcase this perfect all rounder colour on its own.
So my colour combination tonight is simply Crumb Cake and Basic White (not even Basic Black!), with the added sparkle of the FREE Be Dazzling DSP, because I just can’t stop using this DSP and it perfectly complements Crumb Cake.
I have to confess I ran out of time this week and only made my card this morning before I began work. In a way, it was fortuitous that I left it to the last minute because my FREE SALE-a-bration Delicate Dahlias stamp set arrived yesterday and it was the perfect stamp set to make a quick and easy card.
The Delicate Dahlias stamp set has four sentiments and both outline and solid stamps for the flowers and the leaves. You can stamp the outline and solid stamps together to create coloured in flowers, or use them separately in a variety of ways.
The outline stamp can be coloured in with your favourite colouring tool and method or you can use both the outline and the solid stamps separately but together on the one card, as I have done with this card.
This card is basically simple stamping with some fussy cutting and it’s a design you could recreate in any colour you want.
The background layer is Crumb Cake ink stamped onto Crumb Cake card stock using a mixture of the solid stamps.
My top layer flowers and leaves were stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto Basic White cardstock using the outline stamps and then fussy cut out using my paper snips.
I stamped the largest flower twice and fussy cut a second smaller flower layer to add dimension to the flower.
A 10mm strip of the Be Dazzling DSP lies across the middle of the card and die cut and punched circles of Be Dazzling DSP form the centre of the flowers.
The sentiment was white heat embossed and die cut out with the banner die from the Tasteful Labels dies.
Some more simple stamping decorated the inside of the card and the envelope too.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented Theresa Gerrard. I can’t wait to see what she’s made this week!
