August 2023 Color Challenge & Blog Hop

August 2023 Color Challenge

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop and August 2023 Color Challenge!

If you’ve already started the blog hop you should be coming from the talented Melanie Hockin’s blog post. If you’ve just joined in, make sure to do the full hop and see all the wonderful projects created by the Color Fusers Design team! The color scheme for the August 2023 Color Challenge includes Pebbled Path, and Boho Blue, two of the 2023 – 2025 Stampin’ Up! In Colors, and one returning color from the Neutrals collection, Misty Moonlight.

Today’s fun fold project features one of my favorite new sentiment sets called Phrased for All. I’ve also used the lovely Petal Pattern Dies.

This simple fun fold card has a little latch holding it closed. The small Misty Moonlight circle is holding the card shut. It’s up on a Dimensional on the right side, so it just lifts up on the left to release the Pebbled Path cardstock layer to open it up.

When you open the left side you can see this is a simple gatefold card. The “door” on the right side is covered with a piece of the gorgeous Luster Specialty Paper in Boho Blue.

Here’s what it looks like when you open up the right side. I’ve used one of the Foursquare Decorative Masks to add a little something to the inside. I’ve used this same mask on the outside Pebbled Path cardstock also.

For a finishing touch, some of the 2023 – 2025 Glossy Dots were used on the sentiment piece. I love these shiny, relatively flat embellishments!

About Me Page

I am a seeker of that crazy, excited feeling that comes when you've created something that’s unique, beautiful and expresses who you are in some small way. It’s like making a new discovery, when you find a unique combination of color, layout, dimension and texture. I call it a creative spark and it makes me giddy! Through sharing and teaching I hope to help others find this amazing feeling of creative bliss!
