Creation Station May Blog Hop "Mad as a Hatter Mash Up"

Hello and welcome,

Today, I will be sharing with you a card that I’ve created for the latest Creation Station blog hop. This month’s theme is “Mad as a Hatter Mash Up” which means create something unexpectedly with different Stampin’ Up! products or use an outlandish colour palette.

It was so nice to get back into the craft room and create something a little bit different for a change. I had no idea what I was going to do but after a few days later I started to get some ideas in my head. I wanted to use bright colours and I thought what are the opposite colours in the colour wheel? Purple and yellow was a good colour combination to start with.

The main medium for my card is using the Pigment Sprinkles they are bright and fun to play with, so I started with the Bermuda Bay and a panel of water color paper for my under the sea card. The layer underneath is Mango Melody Pigment Sprinkles and water color paper. Around the edges of the water color paper I’ve applied Versamark Ink to the paper, sprinkled Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Through out the card I’ve applied Gold Embossing or I’ve used Gold Foil. I just had to use Gorgeous Grape as my card base as I’ve used the colour through out the card. I’ve Embossed a panel of Gorgeous Grape with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder and added Gold Embossing Powder. 

I liked the idea of adding different Dies or Punches to the card, the leaf Die from the Seasonal layers was fun to play with, using it with the Gold Foil and also combing Pigment Sprinkles with water color paper. The Medium Daisy Punch is so cute and using Mango Melody with Gorgeous Grape really stands out in the card.

I’ve so enjoyed creating this card and playing with the Pigment Sprinkles, they will be missed as they are retiring as of the 3rd June from the Annual 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. The fun part with Pigment Sprinkles is you just never know how your card will turn out and no two cards will ever look the same.

Be sure to visit everyone’s blog and see their amazing creations for the month of May. Make sure you come back next month for more inspiration and to see our creations.


Now it’s time to head on over to Dani Dziama to see her amazing project.
