Colour Coach Blog Hop- July 1st

Happy July 1st and welcome to my little part of the In Love With Stamping Stampin' Up! Colour Coach Blog Hop. You should have hopped here from Sara and her project made with Sahara Sand, Bravo Bergundy and Pink Pirouette.

I had a couple of projects planned for todays hop but my life seems to have run away with me. So I am just including the one Pear Pizzazz Colour Coach combo . This card is inspired by the Creative Combination on the Pear Pizzazz card which combines Rich Razzleberry and Tempting Turquoise. I recently saw a similar pennant style card in the US Stampin' Up! catalogue so I thought I'd give it a whirl with my own take on it. Plus it gave me an excuse to dig out a stamp set I haven't used in a while, Flight of the Butterfly.
For this card I used a Pear Pizzazz base with a pennant cut from the In Colour DSP stack. I then used a strip of Pear Pizzazz Poly Ribbon to create an edging and then finished with a Rich Razzleberry edge punched from the Scallop Trim Border Punch. The butterflies are stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink and then punched with the Butterfly Punch. The centres of each butterfly are punched using one of the Itty Bitty Shapes Punches and then finished with a basic rhinestone. The sentiment is from the Level 2 hostess set in the Mini Catalogue, Something to Celebrate and punched with the Modern Label punch,

I'm sure other Demos on the hop have already explained the Colour Coach, but it such a great tool for inspiring your colour combinations. It is a handy colour swatch full of Stampin' Up! combinations to mix up your creations and make choosing colours for your projects fun and easy. Hopefully along the blog hop you'll have seen many different colour combinations to get your creativity started. And now to continue with your journey, hop on over to Claire to see what colour combination creation she has made.
