August 2021 Color Challenge

Check out the August 2021 Color Challenge & Blog Hop! The colors this month are Just Jade, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather & Basic Gray.

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop and August 2021 Color Challenge!

I absolutely adore the August 2021 Color Challenge color scheme! I am a purple lover in general and I especially love purple and green together. The hardest part of this challenge was incorporating the Basic Gray. That said, I had so much fun playing with ideas for the challenge this month. In fact, I created some variations of today’s project that I’ll be posting to my blog soon. Stay tuned!

Plus, to make today’s project especially fun, I’ve used my favorite Sale-A-Bration stamp set on my card too. It’s called Delicate Dahlias. If you don’t know what Sale-A-Bration is, you’re in for a treat. Stay tuned for more details about Sale-A-Bration later in this post.

I’ve used a piece of Vellum cardstock for my stamped images.

The Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set has several images that layer one on top of each. We call it 2-Step Stamping when you stamp 2 or more images on top of each other to create the finished image.

For my project, the largest flower image is stamped first with Gorgeous Grape for the outline and then I’ve used a second stamp to “color in” the outline with Highland Heather ink. There are a couple of close-ups here so you can see some of that detail.

The small flowers in between the larger flowers are also stamped in Highland Heather ink. For this image, I’ve used both first and second ink for a really soft look, that’s almost more like a background. There’s actually an outline image stamp for this smaller flower that can be stamped over the top, but I chose not to use it so I’d get a more subtle look. The same is true for the foliage image, and again I chose to not use the coordinating outline image.

I wanted the large flowers to stand out the most!

After my images were stamped on the vellum I tore off the bottom and stamped my sentiment image in Gorgeous Grape ink.

This sentiment comes from my latest favorite sentiment stamp set that will be in the July to December 2021 Mini-Catalog that goes live on 8/3/21.

The stamp set is called Heartfelt Wishes and I just love it. Click HERE to see a recent post featuring a set of five cards made with this wonderful sentiment set.

Last but not least, I attached a piece of Highland Heather ribbon to the bottom of my card body, added a few pastel pearls, and attached my focal element using Dimensionals to the front of the card body.
