Stampin' Up - Colour Creations Blog Hop - Lovely Lipstick

Tonight the wonderful team at Art with Heart are featuring one of the 2018-2020 In Colours and  it is a vibrant Pink called Lovely Lipstick.

For my card tonight I saw the idea to cut/punch out using the punch from the  Darling Label Punch Box and make a background on line, and I think it was Kylie Bertucci, so I  put it away in my memory and brought it out for this card. I decided that just having the sentiment on its own on top of the gorgeous Share what you love DSP  from the Annual catalogue and Tranquil tide velvet ribbon, Braided Linen trim and black glittered organdy ribbon from the Holiday catalogue made the sentiment look a little small so I backed it in a black punched out label and also cut out 2 vellum stitched shaped circles to make the  sentiment stand out.

As you can see I have also coloured the flowers using the Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blends. I stamped and extra sentiment and cut out the thanks and mounted that on black and placed it on 2 mini dimensionals. All the Lovely Lipstick background pieces are also mounted on dimensionals. On a normal card base they fit 4 across but I had to slightly trim the edge of the top and bottom ones to have a slight gap for all 3 to fit on evenly.

I quite like how this Darling Label Punch background came out, I will have to try it with other punches. What punches do you think you might try?

The lovely Cathy is the host of our weekly Colour Creations Blog Hop please hop on over to her blog to see her creations and a list of the creative ladies participating tonight.

If you have any questions about tonight's card or would like to purchase these items to make the card yourself or join my team please don't hesitate to contact me.
