Color Coach Blog Hop

Hello & Welcome to my Inaugural participation in a Blog Hop!

What is a Blog Hop? Well, it’s basically hopping from one Blog to another via a link. You would have come from the lovely Alisha Watson’s Blog to arrive here or if you started here, you would then be directed onto the lovely Ros Davidson’s Blog.

A couple of weeks ago, I was very fortunate enough to stay with this group of ladies & attend the 2011 Stampin’ Up! Convention & now they have “adopted” me. It’s wonderful to be part of a passionate group of ladies, who LOVE doing what I LOVE…………………………..Stamping & being Creative.

The theme for this Blog Hop is the awesome Color Coach! Mine just arrived by post yesterday & it is full of fantastic colour combinations! It’s just like looking through a paint palette & seeing all the beautiful colours.

We each chose a main colour & then used the colours that co-ordinated by using the suggestions in the Color Coach. I chose Daffodil Delight as my main colour & Tangerine Tango & Concord Crush as my co-ordinating colours. Bright! Yeah, I know! But Happy Colours too! Hope you enjoyed what I made.

I recently saw one of these little bags made up in a retail outlet, whilst on holidays & memorized it. Actually I made up a “dummy” version as soon as I could – especially as I had to remember which way the folds worked. Phew!

Cardstock: Daffodil Delight Textured , Tangerine Tango, Concord Crush & Whisper White

Stamp Set: Just Believe

Ink: Versmark

Other: Stampin’ Write Markers:- Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz & Concord Crush, Big Shot Top Note Die, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Antique Brad, Eyelet Border Punch, Daffodil Delight 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, 3/4″ Circle Punch, Jumbo Eyelets (which you can’t see), Framed Tulips Embossing Folder & Polka Dot Embossing Folder

Really not too sure what you would call this type of box? Maybe a Pop-Up Box? It opens at the top & you could use it for lollies, small gifts or a box of kisses!

Stamp Sets: Confetti & Punch Potpourri (Hostess Level 1 Stamp Set)

Finally a card – although Daffodil Delight was not my main colour, but it was still used in this colour combination. I used a Masking technique on this card – reminds me of Spring, when hopefully some warmer weather might come our way.
