This week, week 11 in the Colour Creations blog hop we continue our journey featuring all of the Core Stampin' Up! colours, in alphabetical order. This week's feature colour is Cajun Craze, a very strong coloured member of the Regals colour group .
To me Cajun Craze is a strong bold colour and one that is perfect for male cards and as it is my Father In Laws birthday soon, I thought it perfect for his birthday along with the He's The Man Suite of products. Using the He's The Man Speciality paper as my guide I have teamed Cajun Craze with Early Espresso, Sahara Sand and a little bit of Crushed Curry.
My starting point was to cut strips of 2 of the papers in the He's The Man paper pack, adhere them to a piece of cardstock. I then embossed this piece using the Painted Texture embossing folder. I then created a frame using 2 of the Rectangle Stitched dies and adhered this to the embossed piece. The photo below shows the detail of the embossing a bit clearer.
I have then wrapped some of the Natural Finish ribbon around the band.
The sentiment is from the stamp set, He's All That which is also part of the suite and has been stamped in Early Espresso and die cut with one of the dies from the coordinating set. I have mounted this on another die cut using Cajun Craze. One of the pieces of paper in the He's The Man Specialty paper is actaully die cuts, so I have used a couple of them for the stars that I have adhered to the ribbon.
As I thought the strip background needed to be broken up I added some arrows cut in Crushed Curry cardstock.
I have then die cut 4 of the "hashtag"type dies and adhered them to the corners of another piece of paper from the same pack. Finally I have mounted the strip and sentiment panel on top of this. I have then added a few Rustic Metal Dots.
Next in tonight's blog hop is the lovely Kate Morgan. I look forward to seeing her lovely creation.
