Colour Creations: Petal Pink


Thanks for stopping by on your way around the latest Colour Creations Blog Hop. This week we are focusing on Petal Pink, which is one of my least favourite colours in the SU range. It's quite an orangey/peachy pink, and for me that makes it a difficult colour to work with.

I did like this combo from Brian King, so that became my starting point. I also received my first box of goodies from the new Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues on Monday, so I decided to use some of my new things.

Top of my must-haves from the Mini Catalogue was the Watercolour World stamp set. I'm a sucker for anything map related! I used my Stamparatus to stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock and then trimmed it for my card front. I decided to do something a little different and cut the image in two pieces. The right side of the globe went onto the left side of my card, and visa versa. I lost a bit of the middle (sorry Africa and Eastern Europe!), but I quite like the effect.

The double matted panels were layered over another new product - Country Gingham DSP. Gingham's another thing that I'm a sucker for! The sentiment is from Biggest Wish, fussy cut, popped up and layered over some Soft Sea Foam card and Vellum.

All of the same products were used on the inside. I contemplated using the middle piece of the map that I'd cut away from the front, but it didn't really look like a map without the rest of the image - just weird blobs of colour. A strip of the DSP had to suffice!

Next up is my lovely friend, Andrea Sergeant. I'm sure that she's done wonderful things with Petal Pink, so you won't want to miss her blog!

Catherine Proctor is the lady in the know, as always! If you get lost or find a broken link, please pop on over to her blog, where you'll find a list of all of tonight's participants to help get you back on track.

Bye for now,



  1. Tina, I am really enjoying seeing the different cards you are creating with this layout, it is fabulous! I'm not a fan of this colour either, but it works really well with the colour combo you have used.

  2. Oh Tina I so like the splitting up of the world map it looks fabulous! I love the layers beneath the greeting.

  3. I love the effect too, of the split background stamp, great idea. Your choice of Soft Sea Foam as a highlight looks lovely

  4. Such a brilliant layout, cutting the image in half like that, wow. Great combination of matt layers and patterned papers too.

  5. Yep, I'm with you, on Petal Pink, Tina! Great card ... love the way you split the map background. This would be a perfect card to send a friend in the US.

  6. Such a great card Tina. I love your layout and it works so well with the world map. Gorgeous colour combo and layering. xxx
