Crazy Crafters Favourite Three Colour Combo Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the Crazy Crafters Favourite Three Colour Combo Blog Hop. We hope you enjoy our virtual hop where you will learn great techniques for your paper crafting projects.

You should have just left stop number 1 on the Crazy Crafters Hop - Tamie Holt at Tamie Luvs Craft2.  If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

My project for the hop is The Open Sea Tri Fold Card made with the Stampin' Up! The Open Sea stamp set.  The Card Design features Designer Series Paper from the Regals and Subtles Paper Stacks, Candy Dots and Baker's Twine. When I think nautical, red, blue and white comes to mind, which is why I have chosen Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse and Soft Sky for my Favourite Three Colour Combo.  

When I use more than 2 colours on a Card Design, I like to select 2 colours from the same Hue, Blue in this case and add in a WOW colour like a Red to make the Card pop.  Using 2 colours from the same Hue allows a background image to be stamped in the lighter Hue layered with another image in the darker Hue.

The Card Design features a Fold called a Tri Fold Card.  The different sections of the Card sees all images in The Open Sea stamp set being used.
