Color Fusers Blog Hop for August 2020

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for August.  You might have just come from Melissa's blog.  She always has a great project!  If you are starting here, you will love our hop!  We have a beautiful combination.  It is Purple Posy, Gorgeous Grape, and Granny Apple Green.

I think I'm in love.  I know I'm in love!!!  These colors are just so pretty together.  Here's my card.

Color Fusers Tasteful Touches for August Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I think this is one of my favorites.  The base is Purple Posy that is 4 1/4 x 11 and folded at 5 1/2.  The next layer is Gorgeous Grape that measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  There is a layer of designer paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  It's cut to 3 3/4 x 5.  I love that paper too!

Stamp some of the greenery from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Granny Apple Green.  

With that done, color a 5 1/2 inch length of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with the Dark Purple Posy Blend.  Attach from the back.  I always use my Grid Paper to make sure that the ribbon is straight across the panel.

Stamp two of the leaf stems from Forever Fern in Granny Apple Green and 3 of the rounded stems in Gorgeous Grape.  Cut out with the Forever Flourishing dies.  You can get the Forever Fern bundle for a savings of 10%.  Arrange and glue these to the card above and below the ribbon.

Stamp the large flower from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Gorgeous Grape.  Color the flower with the Light and Dark Purple Posy Blends.   You will need to cut out the flower with your snips.  Add the flower with dimensionals.

Color additional seam binding and make a bow.  Attach with a glue dot.

The saying is stamped in Gorgeous Grape.  It comes from the Tasteful Touches stamp set.  Fussy cut around the saying.  Add with dimensionals.  Use a glue dot for the L that overlaps the knot of the bow.

For this card I think the inside is just as pretty as the outside.  The saying, stamped in Gorgeous Grape, is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set.  Stamp the flower and color it just as on the front.  Now make a mask of the flower.  Stamp it on a sticky note making sure that part of it is on the sticky part.  Cut it out right on the lines.  Adhere to the first flower that you stamped.  Now stamp the stems in Granny Apple Green.  Remove the mask.  Now the stems are behind the flower.
