The Spot #112 - Color Challenge with Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo and Pool Party!

Hi there!  I hope your Tuesday has started off well after this beautiful Memorial Day Weekend!  The weather here in Middle Tennessee was beautiful all weekend and we really needed that after all of the rainy days we've had in May!  The sunshine felt so good as I sat on the deck enjoying the dogs playing and exploring in the back yard.  They were happy for some dry days as well!

Over at The Spot Challenge blog this week, we have a fun color challenge for you!

The challenge is to pick 3 or more of these beautiful colors!  I picked Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, and Melon Mambo!

I started out with a base of Granny Apple Green cardstock that measured 11" x 4 1/4", scored at 5 1/2" for a top folding card.  On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped one of the images in 2nd Generation Pool Party (stamped off once) in the upper left and lower right corner.  I stamped the greenery from the set in Granny Apple Green coming in from the middle and lower left side and added the flower image in Melon Mambo coming in from the lower and middle right side to balance it out.  The sentiment "Just Saying Hello" from the set was stamped upper middle in Melon Mambo.  Using the largest scallop rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies I cut my top layer first.  From the section that was left over I cut out the 2nd largest Rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  Using a scrap of Melon Mambo I cut out another of the largest scallop rectangle to put underneath the top layer.  I used my Granny Apple Green blends to color in the greenery and used my Lovely Lipstick blends to color in the Melon Mambo floral images.  The Lovely Lipstick is a very good match for Melon Mambo but I can't wait to get my hands on the new Melon Mambo blends coming out with the new 2020 - 2021 Annual Catalog!  I stamped another flower image onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and colored it in as well but then fussy cut it.  I but it close to the edge and used the darker of the Lovely Lipstick Blend to cover any white showing on the edge.  To start assembliing, I added the outside rectangle piece onto the Granny Apple Green cardbase with liquid Multipurpose Glue.  I added the solid Melon Mambo scallop with more of the liquid glue inside the rectangle where the top layer was cut out.  Next the top scallop layer was added with Dimensionals over the Melon Mambo scallop.  Finally I added my fussy cut flower onto the lower right side with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Last but never least I added three of the darker pink gems from the From My Heart Faceted Gems that were in the Jan- June 2020 Mini Catalog.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
