Well and Truly Cased

Hello all, it's quite a late post from me tonight. I really struggled to get started tonight, I knew I wanted to make something, I just didn't know what! So as I usually do when I get stuck I searched Pinterest for some inspiration and I found a lovely card by Nitestamper which I decided to try and recreate. The reason for the title is that when I visited her blog to get a closer look at the card I found out that she had found her inspiration on Card Creations By Beth with a similar card. As you can see I have chosen to use different colours to both of the other cards as I really like Blackberry Bliss and so I try to use it whenever I can.

I decided I wanted to add a couple of other colours to my card so that it didn't appear too dark and so I pulled out my trusty colour coach which suggested Old Olive and Soft Sky which I think work really well. As both Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss are quite intense colours I had a practice on my grid paper in order to get the colour combinations just right, in the end I stamped Soft Sky straight onto the card, Old Olive twice on scrap first and Blackberry Bliss three times before stamping on my actual card. Even then my sentiment gets a little lost in the purple. The new Park Lane designer series paper is just gorgeous and as this sheet had my favourite colour on I just had to use it.

Don't forget that in order to get Hostess sets like the Bloom with Hope set I have used here you need to either spend £150 (or more) in one go or host a Stampin' Up! party which is a great way to have fun and earn credit to spend on exclusive hostess items.
