Welcome back to our Colour Creations Showcase as we continue our showcase of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alpha order.
This week we are showcasing Poppy Parade, a very bright and happy red!
If you’ve got a “thing” for black and white paper like I do, you’re going to love, love, love this True Love DSP. It’s so very versatile because you can use it for backgrounds, colour it in different ways or fussy cut the flowers to use on your cards or scrapbook layouts.
And the back and white patterns just makes any colour pop!
The colour scheme I’ve used today is such a classic: Poppy Parade, black and white…with just a touch of another bright: Granny Apple Green.
The beautiful red flowers were coloured in with Stampin’ Blends: Poppy Parade for the petals, Granny Apple Green for the leaves, oh, and I nearly forgot the centre of the flowers…Daffodil Delight.
The detail on these flowers in the True Love Designer Series Paper make them so easy to colour and shade – just follow the lines!
The sentiment is from the matching stamp set: “Forever & Always”. After stamping the “Love” stamp I fussy cut it out only to remember I actually own the co-ordinating “Always” dies!!! Duh!!!!
Instead of adding a swirl of the Forever Greenery gold trim behind the “you so very much sentiment” I die cut it using the long rectangle die from the Field Tiles Dies. I then used a needle to thread the gold trim through the holes and then tie a bow, which is secured with a gilded gem.
I really like this effect and must remember to use it again.
