January 2024 Color Challenge & Color Fusers Blog Hop

January 2024 Color Challenge

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop and January 2024 Color Challenge!

If you’ve already started the blog hop you should be coming from the talented Brenda Nelson’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 January 2024 Color Challenge includes Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Parakeet Party.

Today’s project features two stamp sets that will be available starting on January 4, 2024. The first is the Botanical Beauty Set from the January to April 2024 mini-catalog. The second one is called Heartfelt Hellos and will be available for Free with a qualifying purchase through February 29, 2024.

I’ve used all three inks on the Botanical Beauty background stamp and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper.

The sentiment comes from the new Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Heartfelt Hellos! It was punched out using the Heartfelt Hexagons punch along with the piece behind it. I used a fun trick with my punch to get different size hexagons! Fun right?

When creating the front panel, I used a larger piece of cardstock than I expected to use so I would have a scrap for the inside.

Here is another version of my card in the same color scheme.

This one was made during my Facebook Live. I just had to mix things up a bit by using a different method for adding color to the stamp. Instead of using ink pads, I used sponge daubers to add my color. This allowed me to essentially color individual parts of the image. I also reoriented the card so the sentiment would be surrounded by the Melon Mambo flowers in a more pleasing way.

The sentiment here is heat embossed in black. In the Facebook Live I stamped it in Jet Black StazOn but after the live I decided to redo it because I wanted it to stand out a bit more against the bright, colorful background. In this next photo you can see the bold black sentiment.

A different embellishment was used on this version as well. These are the new Iridescent Foil Gems from the new mini-catalog. I love them! Some additional ribbons were added behind the sentiment on this card as well. It’s almost a completely different card and I love it!

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!
