Stampin' Up! Balmy Blue


Welcome to a Week 8 of the Colour Creations Showcase blog hop. This week we continue our journey through the remaining Stampin' Up! core colours, working in alphabetical order, with this week's feature colour being Balmy Blue. Balmy Blue is a soft blue that sits between Pool Party and Azure Afternoon on the colour wheel and is a member of the Subtle group of colours.

 This week the bundle that I have chosen, is as they say and oldie but a goodie, Cheerful Daisies. Balmy Blue has been teamed with Misty Moonlight and White.

Each of the daisies have been stamped onto white card using Versamark  and then embossed with white powder. The flower centres have been stamped in Misty Moonlight and the daisy petals coloured using Balmy Blue Stampin Blends. Each of the daisies have then been die cut using the dies from the Cheerful Daisies dies. The foliage has been die cut using Misty Moonlight card. 

The daisies have been mounted onto a base where half is a piece of the Balmy Blue Designer Series paper and the other half a piece of white card that has been embossed using the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing folder. Splatters of Misty Moonlight ink have been added to the white side to soften the effect. This was done by flicking the end of a Misty Moonlight marker against the lid.

 To highlight the flower centres, Wink of Stella has been used on the Misty Moonlight. 

The sentiment, that has been stamped in Misty Moonlight onto white card is from the new bundle Unbounded Love and has also been die cut using one of the dies from the Unbounded Love dies. 

Finally a bow using the Balmy Blue Bakers Twine from the Three Colour Pack, and a few Misty Moonlight gems from the the Tinsel Gems Three pack have been added. 

Next in tonight's blog hop is the talented Sharon Davern. I look forward to seeing her lovely creation this week.

  1. This is so pretty, T! What a beautiful, calming, colour combination. I love the embossed (and splattered) panel, the baker's twine bow, and the gems added to finish off your card front. Misty Moonlight looks so nice with Balmy Blue, and your use of colour is balanced perfectly.

  2. Love your elegant daisy monochrome card, Theresa! It is a stunner, especially with that Distressed Tile embossed layer and the sparkly gems.

    Beautiful card Theresa, I love to see our older sets again. So many textures and layers on your lovely card.

  4. Beautiful card design Theresa. I love the split front panels graced by the daisies. Misty Moonlight is a perfect partner to Balmy Blue.

  5. So soft, pretty and feminine, Theresa. I adore this colour combination and I really thought you had watercoloured those flowers. Your blending is fantastic. The ink splatters are a great addition along with that stunning TIEF and the striped DSP. Gorgeous layout.
