July 2020 KBH Tropical Nights Color Challenge

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more color challenge inspiration!

This was our inspiration image. I loved how the palms were shadowed in the foreground with the beautiful sunset reflecting off the clouds in the background.

The colors that were pulled from this image included Basic Black, Basic Gray, Rococo Rose, Night of Navy, and So Saffron. The pink, blue, yellow scheme offers so many options because almost every color can be made from those three bases!

At first I wanted to use all three of those colors, but my first card attempt didn’t quite pan out. So I decided to go back to my favorite, simplistic card style and have a Very Vanilla base with some Night of Navy and Basic Black.

I love the texture of the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. I wanted to feature that on this very minimalistic card. I used Very Vanilla cardstock to cut a standard card base. I cut a card mat to go on top and ran that through my embossing machine using the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. I love how dynamic the texture looks!

I used a Sponge Dauber and my Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad to distress the card mat a bit and give it a little color. I added a globe from the World of Good Memories and More Card Pack. I love how easy these stickers are to apply!

The Basic Black and Gold Foil strip of DSP is from the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper and makes the perfect accent to place behind my sentiment. I stamped the words in Night of Navy and cut it out using the globe die from the World Map Dies.

To add a little bit of oomph to the inside of the card, I stamped one of the large globes in Night of Navy. I really love decorating the inside of the cards, but often forget! I’m so glad I remembered on this one. It’s going to be a special birthday card for my uncle.

And that’s it! This card came together quickly with just a few materials from the World of Good Suite Collection. I love buying products in the suite collections because I know I can make so many different projects with just a few supplies!

  1. I always feel obligated to use all the colors and I don’t like my card design. My card is so dark, heavy, and blah. I wish I had tried less hard to fit into the colors. You card is stunning!

  2. Amazing!!!! Love the “touches” of navy to highlight the peaks of the embossing! This would make a great masculine card.

  3. Love your card Melissa. Thanks for all of your hard work and hosting this wonderful hop.

  4. Ths embossing folder is my absolute favourite (at the moment)! The navy ink really makes a different – love!
