Doing the melon mambo...


I love the names of the Stampin' Up! stamps and colours.  In fact, I think that would be my perfect job.  Being the namer!!  I have always wanted to be the person who named lipsticks and nail polishes growing up, now I want to be the official namer for Stampin' Up!

So if you're wondering .... Melon Mambo is a gorgeous pink colour.  Just Believe is a favourite stamp set of mine.  Put them both together and this is what you get:


Awww, pretty aren't they.  These cards were cased from Nikki Stalker who made some gorgeous cards.  I used up my scraps of pink papers (cardstock and DSP) and mixed them with Melon Mambo.  Perfect!


I jazzed up the images with some embossed butterflies.  Super cute!!


I tried a few colour combinations for my stamped flowers.  Card 1 uses Rose Red & Regal Rose.  Card 2 uses Regal Rose & Blushing Bride.  I think I like Card 2 best.   I think the colours blend together beautifully!

So here's the goss on what I used!

Stamps: Just Believe
Inks: Garden Green, Rose Red, Regal Rose & Blushing Bride
Papers: Melon Mambo, Regal Rose & Whisper White CS, Pink Pirouette Subtles DSP
Other: Big Shot & Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon, Paper Snips & Stampin' Dimensionals
