Stampin' Up! Coastal Cabana


This week, week 14 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 Coastal Cabana, is a member of the Brights colour group.

 For my card this week I decided that I needed to add to my general birthday card stash as when I was tidying up recently I found that most of my birthday cards were distinctly feminine.  With this in mind I decided to use the Charming Sentiments bundle and in particular some of the dies from the Sentiment Silhouettes dies. 

My starting point for my card was one of the reverse side pieces of paper from the Hues of Happiness paper pack which features numerous colours, one of which is Coastal Cabana. I have then chosen another piece of paper from the Perfectly Penciled paper pack and coloured the white sections using a blending brush and the Coastal Cabana ink pad. 

I then used the jagged die from the Basic Borders die set to cut this coloured paper. I then joined the 2 pieces of paper together and wrapped a piece of Black and White Gingham ribbon around the band. 

Using the Fabulous Frames dies I die cut a piece of Coastal Cabana and White cardstock. I have used the Coastal Cabana piece for the frame and the White for the centre. I thought that the plain white needed a lift so embossed it using the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder.

I have then die cut the candles from the Sentiments Silhouettes dies in Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo Fresh Freesia, and Daffodil Delight. I have also die cut the smaller stars and star frames from the same colours. 

For the flame on the candles I have used Gold Glimmer paper from the current mini catalogue. 

Both of the sentiments have been white embossed on Coastal Cabana cardstock. 

Next in tonight's blog hop is the lovely Michele Taylor. I look forward to seeing her lovely creation.
