May 2023 Color Challenge & Blog Hop

May 2023 Color Challenge & Blog Hop

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

If you’ve already started the blog hop you should be coming from the talented Janneke Dijkstra de Jong’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 May 2023 Color Challenge is the set of NEW 2023 – 2025 InColors.

The theme for the May 2023 Color Challenge is the 2023-2025 InColors. I've used the Timeless Arrangements Bundle and all 5 colors on my card.

This color challenge is a bit different from our usual challenges in that we don’t actually have to use all five colors on our projects.

Truth be told, I would probably never try to combine all these colors on one card but somehow I did. There’s one color that doesn’t really show much on the final project. It’s subtle, but it is there! Here’s how the colors were applied on my focal piece from bottom to top: Pebbled Path, Copper Clay, Wild Wheat, Boho Blue, and Moody Mauve.

Can you see the tiniest bit of a pinkish color at the top? That’s what’s left of the Moody Mauve. LOL!

The theme for the May 2023 Color Challenge is the 2023-2025 InColors. I've used the Timeless Arrangements Bundle and all 5 colors on my card.

This card is created using the Timeless Arrangement Bundle which will be available to purchase starting on May 2, 2023. I’ve also used a piece of the Pebbled Path Textured Ribbon and one of the Basics Embossing Folders which is available as an online exclusive item.

Check out the detail on the die used for the sentiment. It’s a stitched edge die with little “x” marks to step it up a bit.

The inside is decorated with a scrap of Watercolor Paper that was also colored with all five of the 2023 – 2025 InColors.

I created this scrap BEFORE I designed the card simply to test out how it would work to use all five colors for my background. I loved how the colors looked together so preceded to design this card. Fun right!?

Here’s a peek at the Timeless Arrangements Bundle.

There are 26 images in the Timeless Arrangement stamp set and 16 fun dies in the Timeless Arrangement Dies. I’ve used only three of the images from the set and two of the die on this card. There is soooo much more to play with!

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!
