This week's Colour Creations Showcase is all about Rich Razzleberry.  Cathy Proctor is co-ordinating the share; she has a comprehensive list on her blog of all participants this week. 


According to Stampin' Up!'s Color Coach (a tool we have, to spur creativity using different colour combinations), Rich Razzleberry teams well with Smoky Slate and Balmy Blue .  I have gone with this rather unlikely colour combination, and I have to say, I love it!

I have created a cheery birthday card with the Pretty Perennials bundle.  I started off stamping and die-cutting a couple of large Rich Razzleberry flowers, then stamped and die cut a few smaller Balmy Blue flowers.  All leaves are in Smoky Slate.  The large blooms have Rich Razzleberry die-cut detail overlaid, and all flower centres have been decorated with Artistry Blooms Sequins.

In this photo, you can see a little more clearly the tone-on-tone stamping I did, on the Designer Series Papers in the background.

Here's a better shot of the sequins (they're one of my favourite embellishments, in the current Stampin' Up! catalogue):

I stamped the large "happy" in Rich Razzleberry ink on Basic White card, and fussy cut around it.  I stamped "birthday" in Balmy Blue ink on another scrap of Basic White card, and trimmed it to size.  I tucked the "h" of the fussy cut sentiment underneath the stitched scalloped border, cut using a Stitched Be Mine die.

Listed below are all the products used to make this card.  If you live in Australia, and would like to shop with me for your Stampin' Up! supplies, you can get to my online store by clicking on any of the thumbnail images below.

  1. Gosh, I never would have thought to put those colours together, but it's a delightful combination! The flowers look fabulous, and I love the stamping on the DSP.

  2. I really like this colour combination too Christine and I love what you've done with the Pretty Perennials bundle - how cool does that stitched be mine die look when it is set on an angle? Thank you so much for inspiring us all with your Rich Razzleberry creation tonight!

    Lovely card Christine, I never would have thought to use the Stitched Nested Label die on an angle across the card. Great idea

  4. Wow. Your colour combination is amazing. I love your use of the Pretty Perennials bundle with the sequin centres. Stamping on the DSP provides added dimension and it all comes together as a great card. xxx

  5. I love everything about your lovely card Christine. Colour combo is perfect, stamping on the dsp to give your background lovely depth is perfect and your floral arrangement is perfect. Not happy that Pretty Perennials is retiring and completely devastated that the stitched nested labels dies are gone too.

  6. Oh my goodness, look at you placing that nested die on the angle! Lovely colour combo and snap on the stamp set this week ;)

  7. Oh, wow Christine - such a beautiful combination of colours. They look gorgeous together - I love it too! Gorgeous card!

  8. I like the stitched nested label die on the angle. I hadn't thought to use it like that. Must try it before it retires.
