Colour Coach Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to my little corner of the world wide web! I hope you have enjoyed your journey so far, and left a little bit of love for Ericas projects before coming here.

I have two projects up for your viewing pleasure on your journey.

My chosen colour combo is from the Rich Razzleberry card - rich razzleberry, pretty in pink, and early espresso.

First up, is a super sweet and simple card using one of my all time favourite sets - just believe. I have started with an early espresso card base, and put a layer of rich razzleberry and topped it off with some pretty in pink that I have cut with the wonderful top note die. I coloured the stamp with early espresso and rich razzleberry markers and stamped, then stamped the greeting beside.

To finish it off, I used some wide striped chocochip ribbon and some taffeta pretty in pink ribbon to tie a simple knot at the top of the card.

Quick, simple, and a super sweet little thank you card.

Next up is a 6x6 scrapbook page.

Working with an early espresso base, I added a strip of pretty in pink CS at the bottom that I have stamped with the scattered heart stamp from the confetti set in rich razzleberry. I stamped the swirly butterfly in rich razzleberry onto pretty in pink CS, punched, and added some rhinestones to sparkle them up.

I added a layer of ruffled pretty in pink taffeta ribbon, then matted my photo in rich razzleberry and popped it on top. The greeting is stamped in razzleberry, punched and matted.

I wanted the butterflies to keep some depth to their wings once the page was in the album, so I put popdots under the wings, and some sticky strip to the body before adhering to the page. This keeps the "body" down, and the "wings" puffy, so more fluttery like.

I hope you have enjoyed this stop of the colour coach tour. Next up is Vicky!

Yay! A scrapbook page!! What lovely colours for a girly page too! For some reason a scrap page didn't even cross my mind... and yet, I have the nerve to call myself a scrapbooker! D'oh! Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for taking part in the hop!
