This week’s Global Design Project color challenge throws in a little twist on Holiday colors. While Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake are featured in MANY Christmas cards, Flirty Flamingo is not as prominent. While I COULD have made a cute Christmas card with these colors, I decided to embrace Spring and reached for Beautiful Day and Seaside Notions. Here’s my Thinking of You card:
- Stamp Sets. Beautiful Day is a go-to stamp set for big, bold images – there’s a flower and a butterfly that I always reach for when I want to color. Since All three of the colors in this week’s color challenge are included in Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Blends collection, I knew I wanted to color a bit. This flower is perfect to color and easy to snip! Here’s a look at the Beautiful Day stamp set:While “Thinking of You” is not a Spring sentiment, Seaside Notions is a fun, summery stamp set that’s versatile enough to be used throughout the year. Such a gorgeous collection of sentiments! Here’s a look at the Seaside Notions stamp set:
- A Bold Wash of Pink. A big, bold flower requires a big, bold wash of color. I used my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends to color the petals on this flower before snipping it out with my Paper Snips. I simply added the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend marker on the inside of each petal and blended it into the rest of the petal with the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend marker. I worked petal-by-petal to ensure the ink was wet and easily blended. Here’s a closer look at the flower:Here’s a look at all of the Stampin’ Blends that are currently offered.

- A Touch of Pink. There’s another element of Flirty Flamingo on my card, too! Did you notices the stripes of Flirty Flamingo on the Mossy Meadow Designer Series Paper? The paper is from Magnolia Lane – and there’s not a stitch of Flirty Flamingo in the pack of papers. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper:I used the tenth page shown above. I used a Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker (I could have used the Light or Dark Stampin’ Blend but wanted the stripe to be true to Flirty Flamingo) to color the Designer Series Paper. I love coloring Designer Series Papers. This is the same photo you saw above, but I wanted to point out the stripe:
