Colour Creations Calypso Coral



Hello Stampin' Friends! This week we are looking at the very lovely Calypso Coral! This is a colour in the Subtles range of cardstock, but I felt this colour looked very tropical when combined with Artistry Blooms DSP. And for something different I thought I would try a Theatre Fold card, after being introduced to fancy fold cards by a friend!

So I learned the measurements and how-to from Nicky Nack's Papercrafts and got to work with my own materials. I was so thankful to receive a small pack of Artistry Blooms DSP for taking part in an Art With Heart Facebook competition and I just fell in love with it! 

I made the card below with the Timeless Tropical stamp set and matching In The Tropics dies, adding to the Calypso Coral colour palette with colours in the Brights range. The pineapple was made with Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green for the leaves. I stamped the frangipani image on Whisper White in Calypso Coral ink. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White as well. It was such fun! And I'm so excited to give this one away!
