Hello everyone! It’s Ashley today with a new post in my Creative Color Combos series! It’s been really rainy and drab for days and days by me, so I wanted a color palette for this week that was warm and happy. Here’s the one I picked!
And here is the card I came up with! I think it is the perfect “thinking of you” card for the current time. With so many of us practicing social distancing, it’s nice to be able to send a paper hug to someone we care about!
I started this card by blending some Pinkfresh Studio Fresh Pear ink onto the bottom of a white piece of cardstock. I added a light layer of Pinkfresh Studio Sky Blue ink to the top before using the Cloudy Skies stencil and more ink to add some fluffy clouds. I used the Imperial Stitched Rectangles to cut a piece out of the middle. I added the frame to a white card base then popped the middle section up with a piece of fun foam for dimension and interest.
I stamped the hedgehogs from Quill You Be Mine in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored with Copics before cutting them out with the matching dies. I also stamped and colored the mailbox, letters, and paper airplane from Yappy Happy Mail. I cut slits in one of the hedgehogs and the mailbox so that they could hold letters. I added the images to the card front, popping a few up with foam squares.
I added the sentiment from Quill You Be Mine in Versafine Onyx Black ink. For some finishing touches, I used the dotted trail from Big Bug Hugs and the grass tufts from Honey Bunny Boo to add a few details.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are all staying safe and well! Have a wonderful day!
