Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo


This week, week 28 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  Melon Mambo, is a member of the Brights colour group and is a lovely bright pink colour.


When planning this weeks card I had in mind that I wanted it to be bright and happy as I had the recipient in mind. I have chosen to combine Melon Mambo with Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana. All lovely happy bright colours. 

I have adhered a piece of the "reverse" side of Hues Of Happiness paper to thick Basic White cardstock. I have then added a piece of Basic White cardstock that has been embossed using one of the Lets Celebrate Embossing Folders that features the words Happy Birthday in lots of different languages. 

I have then stamped lots of balloons from the Celebrate With Tags stamp set in Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana and then die cut them using the corresponding die from the Celebrating Tags Dies.

The sentiment is also from the Celebrate with Tags stamp set and has been stamped in Melon Mambo and then die cut using another of the dies from the Celebrating Tags dies.

I have coloured some white Crinkled Seam Binding using Stampin Blends in Melon Mambo and added a bow to look like it is holding the bunch of balloons together.  Finally I have added a couple of Glossy Dots in Melon Mambo.

Next in tonight's blog hop is our lovely host Cathy Proctor. I look forward to seeing her lovely creation.
