For today’s card I challenged myself to use some products which are not my favourites. As a starting point I pulled out some So Saffron cardstock, a colour I very very rarely use. This made me think of straw so I pulled out the Home to Roost stamp set from this year’s Sale-A-Bration selection and also the Garden Impressions 6 x 6 DSP stack which I find a little busy with so many colours included.
Here’s what I came up with and actually I quite like it, whowould have thought So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay would work together.
Just a touch of Bermuda Bay has really brought this card to life don’t you think?
Today I’m featuring a product which I always seem to pass over in the catalogue, the embossing folders. However in this new catalogue there are quite a few which are on my must have list and even a couple of the older ones which I can see working really well with new stamp sets.
The “Oh My Stars” embossing folder was on our demonstrator pre-order list and is one which I think makes a lovely background all on its own and it helped inspire this bold and bright birthday card.
The colour combination of Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Lemon Lime Twist is perfect for this bright bold birthday card. I wanted to show also the Happy Birthday Gorgeous doesn’t just have to male floral cards and if you changed the colour scheme its perfect for male cards too.
Don’t you just love the Bermuda Bay Chevron ribbon too? The other colours are definitely on my wish-list. I love the ribbon selection in this catalogue, I just need to come up with more ways to use it so stay tuned…
One of the most popular freebiesfrom this years Sale-A-Bration has been the glimmer paper pack. This pack includes 12 sheets of glimmer paper in three gorgeous shades of Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron. This stuff is just stunning and a little bit really makes your card “pop”.
The photo really doesn’t do these cards justice as that little bit of glimmer just makes these cards that little bit more special. I used the wave die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits as a trellis base for my little flowers.
The little flowers were created from the Botanical Builder Framelits in Whisper White and the lovely glimmer paper.
The cards were finished with a little greeting from the One Big Meaning stamp set.
Which is your favourite colour ? I think mine is the Mint Macaron version, I know I’m going to really miss this colour when it leaves us at the end of May. If you love this colour or any of the 2015 – 2017 In-Colours then now is the time to stock up as these products will be leaving in just over two months and nearly always sell out fast.
