Colour Creations Stampin’Up! Moody Mauve

I have three different projects to share with you today, featuring the new In Color Moody Mauve.
Who likes it?
Who doesn’t?
I’m hearing a lot of different opinions on this colour.
Personally, I LOVE it!!
So here are my projects.
The first one is a card that I have made using up some of those scraps of watercolour paper.

I have used some of the scraps of watercolour paper and coloured it with some Moody Mauve, Wild Wheat and Mossy Meadow ink and a Water Painter, before die cutting them with some of the Meadow Dies.
I have also die cut the same in Mossy Meadow cardstock, and then overlaid the flower onto the Mossy Meadow, which gives a slight raised appearance to the flower, but also gives a shadowed effect where you can see the tiniest amount of the dark Mossy Meadow behind the flower.

Next I am going to share with you some paper roses that I have been making.
My 17 year old son is displaying some of his wonderful woodturned items at a Wedding Fair this weekend and I was given the opportunity to create some flower displays to complement his items.
These roses are going to be part of this display but at this stage are just individual roses, four in Mood Mauve, and one Very Vanilla.
(I love Moody Mauve paired with Very Vanilla, simply gorgeous!)

And my last project is another card, this one a slightly different fold to a standard card.

The base of the card is a single layer which doesn’t open, with the opening card attached in front.

I have used some Blackberry Bliss for the base of this card to add some depth of colour.

I do hope that I have managed to help you to love Moody Mauve a little better, but if you need some more inspiration, keep on hopping along to Rachel Palmieri.

  2. All beautiful projects, Christina … I think you could convert anyone to this colour! I started off feeling a little unsure about it, but really like it now. 🙂
    The watercolouring on your first card is a lovely way to show off this colour. I agree, Very Vanilla goes beautifully with Moody Mauve – thanks for the tip! The fancy-fold card you created is lovely, too.

    • Hi Beth, thank you for your request, I can do a video, however the paper roses are not made with a die, I have drawn my own template which I use to cut out the layers of the roses.


  3. Gorgeous Chris, the cards are lovely. Love how you water coloured then cut out with the dies. It gives a great effect. Your other card has a lovely panel of embossing under the card opening. How gorgeous are those Roses in Moody Mauve. I do hope the display goes well for you and your son, the vase looks beautiful.

  4. It’s rather clear that you like Moody Mauve with three projects, all amazing too. Blackberry Bliss is a great accent for Moody Mauve. Just quietly, your son’s wood turning looks pretty good too.

  5. Add me to your “I love it” list. This shade of mauve has always been a favourite, makes me think of old textiles and beetroot stains from pickling time, not to mention blackberry sticky fingers XXX


  6. Oh Christina you certainly have been very busy! Those flowers are amazing and beautiful and complement your son’s vase perfectly. I love your watercoloured card with the soft washes and the fancy fold for the second card that showcases the DSP nicely.
