You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Nicole Watt at Pixel Maven’s Retreat on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

When the new 2014-2016 In-Colors were introduced, I immediately fell in love with Blackberry Bliss.   Paired with Hello, Honey, it became a color combination I reached for over & over again (thanks in part to the new Moonlight DSP Paper stack).

See what I mean about this color combination? And the Moonlight DSP?  Don’t you just love the Blackberry Bliss ribbon as much as I do?  I used the new “Work of Art” stamp set for these cards.

While I really was getting mileage out of these two colors, I had somewhat neglected the other colors.   So I created the next card purposefully to expand my horizons and reach for other colors.  I used Hello, Honey, Tangelo Twist and Lost Lagoon in this card. Ok, so maybe I didn’t reach too far because it still uses Hello Honey as a primary color but at least I did resist the urge to pair it with Blackberry Bliss!   Instead I choose Tangelo Twist with an accent of Lost Lagoon.

This card features heat embossing and emboss resist as well as a watercoloring  technique.  It uses the new “Bloom with Hope” hostess stamp set.  The sentiment comes from “A Dozen Thoughts”.  The flower was heat embossed using Versamark ink and White embossing powder.  My aqua painters were used to create the watercolored background and to color the flower.  The ribbon is Lost Lagoon and I have to tell you how much I love this new 3/8″ Stitched Satin In-Color ribbon;  I have already used an entire roll of Blackberry Bliss Ribbon and Hello Honey Ribbon!  That’s alot of ribbon!  But thank goodness, I can still buy more – oh, don’t worry!   I already have.  I’m on my second roll of each of those colors!

  1. Lovely cards, all three. I really love the emboss-resist with that flower, though, and your coloring is superb!

  2. As much as I like the top two cards, your last card is the best!! Great combination of colors and design, Nancy! well done!
