Paper Adventures Team Hop | Australia

Jo's Stamping Spot - Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop - Australia


Welcome! Today I am joining in a Guest Designer for my friend Kelly Kent's Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop! The theme for the hop is Australia, which is really suitable at the moment with Australia Day being on January 26 and all the horrible devastation that is happening here right now.

I decided to take inspiration from those horrible headlines surrounding the Australian bushfires for my card for this hop and I used the kangaroo and koala image from the Animal Outing stamp set, two animals which have really been impacted by our fires.

With so many gorgeous rich colours to choose from it was hard to pick just 3! In the end I chose Blueberry Bushel, Bermuda Bay and Call Me Clover, 3 colours which ordinarily I wouldn't put together!

You may have hopped here from Nikki's blog or you may be starting the hop here but regardless I know you will be flawed by the Design Team's creations for our annual hop.

I wanted to use a new set for my project so I chose the Painted Poppies from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue. With a thick Whisper White card base I popped in a Purple Posy layer to set off the watercoloured background. Not having the matching DSP yet this gave me a chance to play with colours for my poppies and I ended up using Blackberry Bliss and Blushing Bride, with Granny Apple Green for the leaves. I've set the colours off with some gold accents and the gorgeous Flax ribbon.
