Color Combo Hop

Welcome to the Stamp TV CSS Color Combo Hop. I hope you came here from the fabulous blog of my friend Cheri. I'm sure she had something beautiful to share! If you didn't start the hop from the beginning and would like to go back to the start, hop on over to Stamp TV where you will find the full list of participants.

Our hop is a color combination challenge using the following Gina K Designs Pure Luxury colors as our guide: Dark Chocolate, In the Navy, Tomato Soup, Honey Mustard and Ivory.
Here is my card using the color combo. For some reason the Tomato Soup paper is showing up much more orange than it really is. It should be more of a rust-orange color!


My card starts with a Pure Luxury base of Dark Chocolate and then a layer of Tomato Soup that was embossed with a Sizzix Square Lattice folder. The In the Navy strip is embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder and layered with some Honey Mustard sheer ribbon. The center panel is Dark Chocolate, Honey Mustard and Ivory (all GKD Pure Luxury). I stamped the wheat image from the Gina K Designs stamp set duo called Friendship, Family, Love in Honey Mustard ink. The greeting is stamped in Tomato Soup ink and is from the GKD Harvest of Wishes mini stamp set.

(All of the Gina K Designs Pure Luxury paper, ribbon and ink can be found here.)

I hope you enjoyed seeing these wonderful fall colors! Now hop on over to Melissa's blog to see what she has done with these gorgeous colors.
