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 Purple Posy, a soon to be retired pale purple from Stampin’ Up’s 2019-21 InColour collection.
Purple Posy is a feminine and slightly old fashioned (in a good way!) colour that reminds me of my Nana and so I decided to make a card that I think she would have liked to receive. I paired Purple Posy with all neutrals: Crumb Cake, Basic Black and Basic White.
Because there is no Purple Posy stamp pad, I used a floral stamp set that could be coloured using Purple Posy Stampin Blends – Bloom & Grow with its matching Budding Blooms dies.
I could have used virtually any embossing folder on the Basic White card stock layer but decided on the Dainty Diamonds, again with my Nana in mind.
I love this scalloped linen ribbon – it was the Crumb Cake in the centre of this ribbon that inspired me to add Crumb Cake to my colour combination, both in the layer behind the sentiment and the colouring of the leaves.
Because there isn’t a “Happy Birthday” sentiment in the Bloom & Grow stamp set I used the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from Blossoms in Bloom instead.
My friend Tina Gillespie ALWAYS stamps the insides of her cards and she has inspired me to try to remember to do the same too …
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created with Purple Posy today!
