Colour Combo Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Welcome to the first Colour Combo Blog hop of 2019, Your currently visiting Laura Mackie based in the United Kingdom in Norfolk, Now this is why I love this Hop... these colours had me, I don't think I'd ever actually used my Cajun Craze ink pad!

Heres my card..

My Cajun Craze card base measures 21cm x 14.85cm 
scored in half at 10.5cm
Whisper White card layer 10cm x 14.3cm

The background is stamped using a new stamp set Beauty Abounds, and I love the Bokeh effect stamps, I've stamped with Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape ink pads, I stamped randomly til I was happy keeping away from the edge of my card layer, as I knew I didn't want to stamp near the edges!

More on how i made my card:

The 'Happy' is diecut using the Happy Birthday Framelit, but i cut away the Birthday part as I knew I didn't want that bit! Its cut in Gorgeous Grape cardstock, before adhering to my card layer I added some Coastal Cabana copper edged ribbon behind, the copper had a real Cajun Craze look to it and loved the look, 

I stamped the 'Birthday' in versamark on Coastal Cabana Cardstock then heat embossed with Copper embossing powder again to pick up on the Cajun Craze...

Spot those little flowers??? they are new PUNCHES! we all love a punch 
these are a set of 4, 3 punching various shaped flowers, and 1 that punches the 
flower centres and the little leaf

To finish off I flicked Cajun Craze ink with my Blend pen and coloured a few pearls with my dark Cajun Craze blend marker, and added those randomly...
