Welcome to the Color Inspiration for Card Makers Blog Hop! Color Inspiration is the latest special issue from Paper Crafts Magazine...in case you missed it, we've been celebrating all week long on the Paper Crafts Connection and Moxie Fab World blogs! You can purchase this issue on newstands or by visiting the Paper Crafts store HERE.
Today we're wrapping up the celebration with a blog hop featuring 10 designers from this issue. Each designer is showcasing a brand new card using the color combo featured on the cover of this gorgeous issue! Look at those colors...oh, so bright and fun.
But who says you can't soften and shabby up those vibrant combos? If those vibrant shades feel a little over the top to you, soften it up! I added lots of white to my card along with the bright pops of color...the result is softer, but still oh, so colorful and fun!
This is just one of the many color combos in the issue. There is something for everybody! That's the fun thing about this issue. The six of us Go-to Gals even challenged eachother to create cards with the combos that seemed to fit each of us individually. It's funny how you can see a color combo and it can remind you of a particular person! What color combo are you?
As I was creating cards for this call, there were definitely color combos that called my name and others that....eh, not so much. BUT, after getting my copy of this issue I am blown away by the things that other designers created with the color combos that didn't call my name....so many of them are gorgeous and made me wonder why I didn't give it a try! I will now, that's for sure! This issue is sure to stretch you out of your comfy color zone and get you creating things in a whole new pallette.
To see how nine other designers interpreted the color combo from the cover of this issue, hop around to the following blogs! I know I can't wait to see how each one put her own spin on it!
