Pear Pizzazz Colour Challenge Week 1

As you may know, each month I set myself a Colour Challenge. This involves randomly selecting one of the Stampin’ Up! colours and producing projects to share for each Tuesday of the month. For week 1, I always produce a monochrome project using just the feature colour plus one of Whisper White, Very Vanilla or Basic Black.

My March Colour Challenge features Pear Pizzazz. For the monochrome card I decided to pair (excuse the pun!) it with Very Vanilla.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock and I have followed this with a layer of Pear Pizzazz cardstock. The main card front is a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock.

I have stamped images from the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using the coordinating punches. I have also stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using the plain heart punch. The slightly larger scalloped heart punch was used to cut out a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and they were layered together. The hearts were arranged onto the card front and adhered using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The whole card front (with punched elements in place) was then embossed using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder. This technique is called inlaid embossing and its so effective! The final touch was to mount the card front on to the card base and there we have it – a gorgeous card to let someone know how much they mean to you!

Next time…

Next week Pear Pizzazz will be combined with Shaded Spruce and Crushed Curry. In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments, please leave them below or email me at:
