This week's Colour Creations blog hop is all about Night of Navy, the darkest blue in Stampin' Up!'s colour range.

I have teamed Night of Navy with silver and white, to make a wedding card, featuring the beautiful Artistically Inked bundle.

I started off with a panel of Basic White card, on which I stamped the splotchy "watercolour" image from Artistically Inked.  I stamped it in a fairly random fashion in Night of Navy ink (both full strength, and "stamped off", to give tonal variation), and in Versamark ink in the areas I wanted to emboss with silver embossing powder.

You can better see the silver-embossed bits in this photo:

After stamping my background, I used a Stitched With Whimsy Die to add some stitched frame detail.  I then adhered the Basic White floral die-cut, backed with Adhesive Sheet to make application clean and easy.

Above the large floral die-cut, I added a Night of Navy border piece cut from a Nature's Thoughts Die.  I used my Dark Night of Navy Stampin' Blends marker to colour a length of White Glittered Organdy Ribbon, to create the bow.  The sentiment is from a new stamp set called Special Moments, that is a Sale-A-Bration freebie.  If you spend $180 on Stampin' Up! product before the end of February, you can earn this fabulous, versatile, stamp set for free.  I used the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die to crop the sentiment.  Some Night of Navy rhinestones add a bit of bling to my card.

It's a little hard to discern in my photos, but the main Basic White layer is matted onto a piece of the darkest silver paper from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack.  A narrow mat of Night of Navy card is in between the silver layer and the Basic White card base.

A simple Night of Navy die-cut added to the inside of the card ties in with the design on the card front:

  1. Navy, silver and white - what a gorgeous colour combination on your card, Christine. Love the peek of silver behind the die cut piece - very classy and sparkly.

  2. The silver embossing is super special behind your feature die cut image, Christine. I love the narrow matt layers, the coloured glittery ribbon bow and the Special Moments stamp set is a great SAB addition!

  3. Oh what an elegant colour combination for a wedding card. The ide of having the silver embossing in the background adds another dimension. I'm looking forward to inking up that stamp set too as there are lots of options

  4. You've created a really interesting, textured background for the die cut flower. Great card Christine.

  5. This is a really pretty card, Christine. I love the splotchy background in navy and silver and the die cut layer over top. Lots of very pretty Night of Navy elements in your embellishments.
