In Love With Stamping Colour Coach Blog Hop

Welcome to the ILWS Colour Coach Blog Hop,
if you have arrived from Julie's blog then hello to you too.
Here is my 'page', I've chosen to show you the Melon Mambo options.
So I started with the second option of
Melon Mambo
Old Olive and
Elegant Eggplant
and using the Itty Bitty Bits along with the matching buttons and punches I made this first card.
The second card uses
Melon Mambo
Daffodil Delight and
Tempting Turquoise
this time with DSP and matching buttons and brads.

Bienvenue sur le Blog Hop ILWS Colour Coach,
Si vous êtes arrivé du blog de Julie, alors bonjour à vous aussi.
Voici mon 'page', j'ai choisi de vous montrer les options Mambo Melon.
J'ai donc commencé avec la deuxième option pour faire la première carte
Melon Mambo
Vert Olive et
Divine Aubergine

et en utilisant les tampons Itty Bitty Bits avec les boutons et des perfos assortis.
La deuxième carte utilise
Melon Mambo
Narcisse Délice et
cette fois-ci avec DSP et boutons assortis et des attaches parisiennes.

This next card uses the 3rd option that is shown on the Colour Coach (hidden in the top corner)
of Melon Mambo and Pretty In Pink - monochrome my favourite !!
La prochaine carte utilise la 3ème option (un peu caché en haut à droite) avec
Melon Mambo et Joli Rose - monochrome mon préféré !!

  1. Love the Melon Mambo/Pink Pirouette Medallion card. That is so striking. I have just bought this stamp and I am addicted to using it. I love the Itty Bitty card.
