Peach and Grey Floral Oval

Hello my friends!  I don't think that I have ever posted a card in peach and grey before.  Eager to hear what you think, does it work?  I actually like grey with just about any other colour, yellow, yes, red, yes, lavender, yes, pink, yes, teal yes.  I could go on and on.  The choice was made at the time because that is all that I had handy.  It was late at night at my Mom's and I wanted to craft, so peach it was!  I started by embossing the background with the paisley embossibility folder.  My background is larger than the folder so I had to do it in two sections.  The pattern doesn't line up, but I knew I was using a topper that would cover the seam if it showed.  I think that is the best use of that type of folder.  Just plan your card layout to hide the seam and you won't be disappointed.  I mounted the grey embossed background so that a paler shade of peach was peeking out from behind it top and bottom.  I stamped my sentiment on white card.  To the side of the sentiment I stamped a floral swirl from the new Design Element stamp set using Tattered Rose distress ink.  I cut a frame out of peach card using the largest Floral Oval die with an oval die inside.  I mounted the sentiment so that it showed through the frame and attached it to my card.  I added a double bow out of white silky crush ribbon.  I cut two of the jewel fantasy pieces and added it to either side of the bow.  A big fancy black button and two black pearl stick pins finished it off quite nicely.  A couple more finishing touches like the black rhinestone swirl in the upper corner for balance and some piercing around the edge complete the card.  What do you think, are you warming to the grey and peach yet?  all for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue,
Yes I like it, not a combinatiion I would have chosen, yes! I am warming to it. I think the fact that the grey background is embossed it helps lifts the whole thing.
Will give this a go and see how it looks in the flesh so to speak.....
Loving the bow.
Have a great day,

Patricia xx

Pam said...

Hello Sue, not yet sure about grey and peach but the card design is lovely. I too love the bow.

Lucy said...

Morning, Sue. YES! The grey works with the peach. I, too, think of grey as a neutral that looks good with any color. The Floral Oval die is very elegant. Coupled with your beautiful bow, you've got another stunning card.

Debby Berry said...

Sue
I like the design but these are not my color combinations I like that you try the combos however. Cheers. Debby

Morning Sue

Maryann said...

I too think, it looks great, and I´m also one of those, who always have greay in my stash incase I suddenly need something for a certain project, cause then I can always save a project, if it get stucked somehow.
I like this and I just love this oval die here and it´s definitely gone to the top of my very long wishlist here now, that´s for sure. I love this.

scottish crafter said...

Yes Sue the colour combination works, the white oval and ribbon set the card off. Love it.

mags said...

Hi Sue. I think the combo of peach and grey does work. Quite a simple design but stunning. Got to love the lush bow.

BridgetCG said...

Sue, I think the colour combo is lovely, grey goes with loads of colours and is just perfect to use instead of silver. Thanks for the inspiration yet again. Bx

Ali W said...

This colour combination works for me, it took me back many years....my daughter chose this colour scheme for her bedroom when she became a teenager, she's now 36! I'd forgotten all about it, and now your beautiful card takes me back to my younger days, Lol. Keep on with the unusual colour combinations Sue, "don't yer just luv em". Cheers, Alison :)

Anonymous said...

'morning Sue, yes I like this ...no surprise.. I like all your cards; you were busy at your Mum's. I like the layout of the card with the borders only showing top and bottom, the bow certainly adds the touch of luxury. Mabex

Chris said...

Morning Sue,
Love the card and the Grey, but not sure about the Peach. But Peach just isn't my favourite colour. I also love the bow.
Love Chris X

Joesgrandma said...

Just lovely. Like the colours Sue

Happy Tuesday!

Val in Spain xxx said...

Good Morning Sue. Lovely colour combination and not one I would have thought of but it definitely works for me. Love the bow. A really lovely card altogether. Thankyou

Karen said...

Hi Sue, I think it works, not sure if it is one I would have chosen but I am not a peach person. Love the layout of the card and the fantastic bow.

auscrafts said...

morning Sue yes Ilike this colour combination not colours I would have thought would go together , but it looks stunning

lestim said...

Hi Sue, the jury is still out on this one, there is no real reason for grey and peach not to go together but somehow they don't, the seem to cancel each other out. The design however is classic and can be used with any colour combo, which makes it a great card. Best wishes Lesley x

Elizabeth said...

Morning Sue, what a pretty card today. I am not 100% sure that this colour combo works for me...maybe the grey to be a shade slighter? Pretty ribbon.
Elizabeth x

Julia Watts said...

This card really stood out for me. I love the softness of the peach with the grey. Lovely simple layout. Julia xxxx

CraftyAnn said...

Love the grey and peach together, another colour combo for me to use. I normally use grey with either delicate pink or lemon but will be using peach as well now.
Take Care.

yes strangly enough I think the colour combo does work, not colours that I would have thought putting together, but again you are the expert in these things and give us all great ideas for our cards.

Ruthie said...

If you had not mentioned 'does the grey and peach' work I would not even have thought it didn't, it is an unusual combination but we are used to that from you, and yes it works beautifully, nice trick hidding the seam on the embossing.

mell said...

Really not sure on this one xx

Hi Sue, have to say I really like the card but not the peach and grey. I think the grey really takes the warm colour of the peach away. Sorry!

The card is lovely, but I should have been tempted to add a darker shade of the peach or grey card too, something between the pale shades and the black of the embellishments. (I'm not suggesting an improvement for your card Sue, ('as if' as my children would have said)just a difference!)
Thank you, Sue

Lara B said...

Good morning Sue
I think this is a lovely combination of colours. I didn't realise it was peach and the tattered rose doesn't look pink at all due to the lighting (not a criticism)
I love the embossed pattern in the background and the dies used especially the pieces in the ribbon.
Your bows are always immaculate.

Carol S. said...

Morning Sue, I am not sure on the colour combo. I think it would look better if either of the colours were stronger, for more of a contrast. It probably loks better in real life. Hugs, Carol S.xxx

Helen O said...

Good morning Sue, I love the design of the card and love the bow, sentiment, oval frame etc. I love the grey, black and white, I would love to see the peach replaced by a more striking colour eg red, bright blue, green etc. For me Im not a fan of peach, I struggle with oranges and yellows to by honest. Saying that since following you Ive used yellow with black and navy, so peach is my next quest, Im thinking peach and chocolate or peach and red maybe. Thank you for sharing and shaking it up Helen O xxx

Pretty card. I really like the two die pieces that you added to the bow; it's not something you see every day. :)

Gill Constable said...

Hi
I have been wearing this colour combination for years having once bought a silk blouse in just this mix. Grey is also fab with aqua! You never choose a combination which doesnt work, as far as I can see and I am always inspired by your creations. Many thanks for all you make and post.

Cornish Emma said...

Yes i love the peach and grey but personally not the black background with it as i think the black overpowers the peach and grey. Grey is a great neutral colour that goes with everything i think. Love this layout. Emma

Christine Harrop said...

Lovely card but for me the colour combination doesn't work.I love grey and work with it a lot, but with other colours. Reading the comments it's interesting to see how divided we are - one man's meat is anpther man's poison as the saying goes. But isn't this exactly what makes life, and crafting, interesting?

Sue Parish said...

Hi Sue,
Hope you are safely back on dry land now and that you've had a blast! (As you would say!)
Like this card - the colours remind me of a pet cockatiel I used to know, but I believe that he had a touch of lemon about his head too.
I bought the jewel fantasy dies when I saw how good they looked as an accent on another card you made. The ovals I hope to have soon!
Welcome Home,

I kind of think that the grey tends to dull the peach a little, but that might be my screen, as in my head it sounds better than it looks on my screen. I will have to go try it for myself now!

Yes this works very well. I like peach and grey together, grey is softer than black so l think it makes a much more Subtle colour combination. I also like peach with brown a colour way l use quite often. Lol Ann

Hey Sue

Hope you are well and enjoyed your cruise, bet it feels weird to beck on solid ground!!

I like this, not two colours i would have tried but it does look nice, i like the swirls with the bow, very different and ties it all in perfectly. Someone else commented about the embossed background making the card and i also totally agree with this!

Cant wait to see what you have for us tomorrow.

Much love

Amanda x

Margaret said...

Hi Sue, This is not a combination I would have thought of, but it just goes to prove thinking 'outside the box' works. The background being embossed is just the icing on 'the cake' yet again you are showing us a wonderful dimension. I can't wait until my Floral oval dies arrive tomorrow if the post is being kind I can but hope!

Hi Sue. This is not a combination that appeals to me as I am not keen on orange ( or shades of). However, I love the card and I would use this combination if I knew the recipient of the card would like it, as it certainly works. (cor you don't half get big splinters in your bum sitting on the fence!!). Looking forward to tomorrow's post, as always. Ju

Hi Sue, love the colour combination. I agree with you, grey is as easy as black when it comes to teaming up with otehr colours.
A winning combination and great layout.

The colours work for me I think the card is lovely. I am a big fan of grey in clothes and feel it goes well with most pastel colours. Looking forward to hearing all about the cruise!!!

What a lovely colour combination. I particularly like the addition of a stamped image on the sentiment

I think it's a great combination...Love the floral frame, about to play with mine which arrived this weekend. Grey is something I don't tend to use but might just give it a go, works well.

Hi Sue,
I will be honest at first glance I thought 'oh not so sure', then the closer I looked the more I loved it. I have only one little issue, but not even sure if it is an issue, could just be my eyes:- the white organza - I'm wondering if it's too much a stark white against the rest. Or am I just being picky....I am aren't I?! Oh just ignore me, what do I know anyway, I threw a completed card in the bin the other day. Tore it to shreds actually, all because I didn't think I'd matched the colours properly....lol!!
All the best Linda x

Hi Sue My daughter wore peach and grey for her daughters wedding and she looked stunning as does your card.
Thanks once again

Hi, like this card a lot and with a change of colour to something a little brighter it would be fab. Must order those florral ovals, they're great. Thanks. Hil xo
