Colour Creations Showcase - Magenta Madness


Hi there

Tonight, I'm joining the ladies from the Art With Heart Team for this week's Colour Creations Showcase. This week we're featuring Magenta Madness from the 2020-22 In Colors.

Stampin' Up! Colour Combo for Magenta Madness - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

I have used a simple layout for my card tonight to offset the busy floral design from the Flowers For Every Season DSP and of course Magenta Madness, which is an eye-popping hot pink. When I'm working with a really bright colour, I like to have lots of white to balance it out. 

Stampin' Up! Flowers For Every Season DSP & Quite Curvy - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and dry embossed the front with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. The main feature is a panel of the floral patterned paper from the Flowers For Every Season pack which was adhered to a Magenta Madness mat. I tied some Just Jade 1/4" 2020-22  In Color Ribbon around the left end and finished it with a bow. 

The greeting from the Fancy Phrases stamp set was stamped in Just Jade ink and cropped with an oval from the Layering Ovals Dies and then popped up on a stitched oval in Magenta Madness. I stamped the 3 cute birds from the new Quite Curvy stamp set and coloured them with coordinating Stampin' Blends alcohol markers and adhered them around the greeting.

For the inside, I have a Magenta Madness mat with for my writing panel. I have stamped the flower spray from the Quite Curvy stamp set in the corner and as it is a photopolymer stamp, I was able to manipulate it a little to better fit the corner position. I have coloured the image with Stampin' Blends in the coordinating colours.

A perfect balance of elements Judy - such a delightful card.
I haven't bought Curvy Creations yet - but you know I want the whole bundle just for the 3 little birds!!! LOL

Michele Taylor

A very sweet card Judy. I particularly love how you coloured the birds to match the bright happy DSP. Would it be wrong to buy the Curvy bundle just for the birds? Asking for a friend. :)

Aww, that is a very sweet card, Judy. Those little birds are the perfect addition with this DSP, and agree with needing the extra white space!
