Creative Elements


When I took a look at this week's colour challenge at Just Add Ink my first thought was 'yuck'!  Cherry Cobbler, Blushing Bride and a Neutral did not seem at all like a winning combination.  I must give my hat to the girls though - it's now a colour combo I love!

I started off with a base of Blushing Bride DSP from the Nursery Nest pack and then overstamped it in Cherry Cobbler.  In the photo below you can just see that I also stamped the edge stamp in Blushing Bride, just below the ribbon under the sentiment.

I kept the inside very much the same as the outside.

I think colour combinations like this, that at first seem to be a bit unappealing, are great as long as you follow the 60:30:10 rule.  In this case 60% of my card was Blushing Bride, 30% was Cherry Cobbler and 10% was Whisper White.

Stamps: Creative Elements, Clearly For You, Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Blushing Bride
DSP/Cardstock: Nursery Nest DSP, Cherry Cobbler, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Other: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbbon, Paper Snips, Corner Rounder Punch

Catch you later,



  1. So glad you found the colour combo a winning combination in the end. Your card is beautiful, especially the sentiment going 'off the edge' with the ruffled seam binding. Great job.

  2. So glad you persevered Tina, you have created a really lovely card, your sentiment and seam binding panel is a beautiful addition.
