Welcome to week 31 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Night Of Navy from the Neutrals family, one of my all time favourite Stampin’ Up! colours.
My three Night of Navy cards all use a different image from a new stamp set called “In the Moment”. If you like colouring, this stamp set is a must have and it can be found on page 57 of the new January – June catalogue.
I’ve combined Night of Navy with Crumb Cake and Balmy Blue for a classic colour scheme and used my light and dark Stampin’ Blends! to colour each of the images after I’d stamped them in Tuxedo Memento ink.
Each card has a different Night of Navy background. For the woman relaxing with a good book I naturally couldn’t go past the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder – what a perfect match!
I ran my Night of Navy ink across the inside surface of the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder before embossing the background Basic white layer. TIP – to clean the ink off your folder once you’ve embossed simply run the embossing folder under tap water and then leave to dry.
I’ve used another new product for the second card – the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks. By using a Blending Brush to lift ink off the Night of Navy ink, it was quick and easy to create an lovely ombre background layer.
All three cards have a bow of Night of Navy Bakers Twine which is from the new “Fan Baker’s Twine” pack. This pack contains three spools of Baker’s Twine in Evening Evergreen, Night of Navy, and a Poppy Parade/white twisted twine.
Card three was the fastest of the three to create because the coloured image is layered on this beautiful Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper. I love this DSP!
For all three cards I die cut the image using the Scalloped Contours Dies as they are just the perfect size for these images. The sentiments are all from the “In the Moment” stamp set.
Each of these cards perfectly captures some of my favourite ways to relax. Enjoying my morning cup of coffee or tea as I look into my garden and listen to the birdsong. Savouring a glass of wine at the beach where I am lucky enough to live. Reading a book and enjoying a cuppa while snuggled up with my dog!
