Tonight's Colour Creations blog hop is all about Tahitian Tide, the last in our series of new In Colors that we're showing off before launching into our alphabetical-order showcase of Stampin' Up!'s core colour range.  Tahitian Tide is a really uplifting, bright, turquoise.

I made two cards for this week's colour challenge, and it was a bit tough to decide which one would be blogged tonight!  I have opted for a pretty simple design, in Tahitian Tide and Basic White, with touches of silver.  The star of my card is the gorgeous new Pretty Medallion background stamp, which I have white heat-embossed on Tahitian Tide card.

After embossing the beautiful intricate stamped design, I added some stitched frame detail with a Stitched With Whimsy die.

The sentiment, from Sending Smiles, was heat-embossed in silver on a piece of Basic White card, and cut out using one of the Sending Dies.  The main panel has been matted on a Basic White panel, and a thin silver panel. 

 I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to tie in with the silver accents.

    Beautiful Christine, I had to check out the stamp as I must have missed it in the catalogue.

  7. Although you say your card is a simple design, it's just those little things that take it to the next level, like the very fine silver border and the Stitiched with Whimsy embossing. Just elegant.

  8. The white embossed medallion is beautiful Christine and love the touches of the whimsy border die and rhinestones for that sparkle.
