Crazy Crafters December Blog Hop

 

Welcome to stop #8 on the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop for December.  You should have just arrived from Sarah Rae Oakes' Blog Stampin' Up with Sarah. To see the full list of blogs, scroll down almost to the bottom of this post!

This month our theme is three colours (plus white if desired).

I decided to draw inspiration from three of the the colours I often use in my scrapbook layouts...sometimes together but often not.

It was obligatory to have at least one shade of PINK in my colour combination so I chose Melon Mambo.  The other two colours are aqua/turquoise and grey  These were harder to pick but I settled on Tempting Turquoise and Basic Gray.

I decided to set myself an additional challenge of using as many new supplies as possible.  Not necessarily just-released-new but not-yet-used new.

The Big Shot got quite the workout for this card.  I tried the flip cards using the new Thinlits that everyone is making,  I liked the idea of the extra flap and wanted a lovely girly card which,  in addition to lots of pink and floral goodness, required glitter and bling.

The card isn't exactly how I envisioned it in my head but for a first attempt combined with my arthritis misbehaving, I'm satisified...more or less.  Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see a clickable list of supplies used to make this card.

  5. What a beautiful card - I love how it opens, an excellent idea with the extra flap as I always feel that I don't have enough room to write on the Card Thinlits dies.
