AWH Colour Creations - Week 32 - Night of Navy

Hi everyone!

Night of Navy, I LOVE this colour! I love the richness of it, and it just feels luxurious to me.
It's a perfect colour for any occasion card.

Night of Navy 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper - Neutrals Collection

Here is my creation for tonight's colour challenge with the AWH team.

Touches of Texture is a stamp set that I haven't inked up in such a long time, and I'm so glad I got it out for this card, because it has some beautiful images in it. It is an image only stamp set, so for the sentiment, I chose one from Varied Vases.
For the DSP, I added thick and thin lines from my night of navy Stampin' Blend marker, to a piece of the balmy blue Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. I backed this with a piece of Night of Navy cardstock. I love any colour in gingham, and the best thing about this paper is that one side has large squares and the other has smaller squares. That's a win, win for me! Other colours in the 6" x 6" pack are - Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist, all with Whisper White. - Gorgeous!!!
I'm also having fun using our fantastic new rectangle stitched framelits! I'm sure you'll be seeing lot's of cards and projects showing off these great dies, everywhere.

I stamped one of our envelopes, front and back, to match the card too.

And inside the card, I stamped the dragonfly and added a strip of the leftover DSP.

I brushed some sparkle onto the flower petals and buds with the Wink of Stella pen, added a bow of gorgeous, balmy blue organdy ribbon, from the combo pack in the Sale-a-bration brochure, and a night of navy enamel dot from the Happiness Blooms suite.

  1. How clever of you to coordinate the envelope as well as the inside of the card. A proper matching set.

  2. Oh, I LOVE this card! The blues are so gorgeous together, and the splatters over the flower really lift the card. Beautiful!

  3. I keep saying it this week, but this is a great card Caroline, I love the matching envelope.

  4. Gorgeous Caroline, I love your use of the Gingham DSP and the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I do love blue and this is so pretty.

  5. The gingham paper is so versatile, and looks good as a plaid too. Nice idea to use it to soften the look of the card.

  6. Caroline this is a great colour combo and I love what you've done with the DSP. Just gorgeous! Thanks for hopping along this week.
