AWH Team - Colour Creations Week 23 - Magenta Madness

Hello and welcome everyone.

It's Week 23 of the Colour Creations Showcase from the Art With Heart team.
Tonight we are shining the spotlight on Magenta Madness, one of our 2020-2022 In-Colours.

When I got married in 1986, my 'going-away' dress was the exact same colour as Magenta Madness and I loved it, and I loved playing with this vibrant, hot pink colour on my card for tonight's showcase.
I've paired it with another of the 2020-2022 In Colours - Just Jade.

My card is a mixed bag of products, but looking at it you wouldn't guess that was the case because everything coordinates so beautifully together.

My simply stamped tulip and leaves are from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and the tulip was cut out with the coordinating Tulip Builder PunchI found some tulips in a floral pattern from the Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper pack, that went perfectly with the punched out tulip.

I fussy-cut a specific section of the DSP so I could see some individual tulips, and I used a die from the Ornate Layers Dies to do this. I backed it with a piece of Magenta Madness card stock and glued that onto another die-cut from the same die set in Whisper White card stock. I added this to the Subtle 3D partially embossed panel with dimensionals.

The punched out tulip was popped up on dimensionals and I coloured a length of the Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon with my light Magenta Madness Stampin' Blend marker and tied it into a bow, adding it to the Just Jade stamped stem with a glue dot.

The sentiment is from the Quite Curvy stamp set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and cropped with a coordinating die from the Curvy Dies set. I flagged the end with the Classic Label punch. The Quite Curvy Bundle is now available for customers to purchase as an early release product from the up coming Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalogue.

On the inside I've added a layer of Whisper White card stock over a piece of the DSP. I cropped the writing panel with a Stitched Rectangles die and stamped the smaller tulip in second generation Magenta Madness classic ink. I did some masking of the full flower so I could add the two partially stamped tulips on either side.

The narrow strip of Just Jade card stock was an after thought, so I did have to snip it into two pieces to fit behind the tulip, but it definitely looks great and helps to separate the top and bottom sections. I added three basic rhinestones for a touch of "sparkle and bling".

Well that's it from me tonight everyone, thanks for stopping by.

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the team's Magenta Madness projects.
