Now, onto my card for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #308. We are to use Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie in our card. I did struggle to come up with an idea using these colors. But then as I was going through my stamps, I came across this one, which I have never used, so this card will also work for Darnell's NBUS challenge, too.
I started with Stampin' Up's "Melon Mambo" card stock and dry embossed it with SU's "Pretty Print" embossing folder sideways, so I had to use my Spellbinder's Grand Calibur to run the ef through, as it is too wide to go through my Cuttlebug. I used Gina K's "Pure White Luxury" card stock and inked up the stamp from SU's "Postage Due" with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used Tim Holtz's circle blending tool to ink up the white card stock with SU's "Melon Mambo", "Daffodil Delight" and "Pumpkin Pie" inks, which made the Postage Due stamp pop. I finished off the card by die cuting 3 flowers out of PaperTrey Ink's "Beautiful Blooms II, #3" with white card stock, which I colored with "Melon Mambo", "Daffodil Delight" and "Pumpkin Pie" inks, pop dotted each layer and added a rhinestone to the top of the flower. I then die cut out "Celebrate" (from PTI's "Wet Paint Die Cuts" and "Today" (from PTI's "Wet Paint II Die Cuts") out of both "Daffodil Delight" and "Pumpkin Pie" card stock and offset them and attached them to the card.
