I love stamp sets that have little flowers and leaves so you can create quick and simple backgrounds just by randomly stamping. Thats one reason the Framed For You stamp set has been one of my first cgoices from the new catalogue, alongside the floral images there are some great sentiments and that great frame image which works perfectly with our Layering Squares Dies.
For this card I used a bold colour combination of Gorgeous Grape, Just Jade, Pool Party and Cinnamon Cider and I love how these colours look together.
I love how this turned out and think its a great design you could mass produce easily to build your card stash, its also one where you could change up the colours easily.
Today I’m sharing a card made with the Comfort & Hope stamp set, this is a great stamp set for adding little touches on cards as the images are all different textures and elements. My favourite stamp has to be the loops, I was a big fan of the Metallic Thread we used to carry but could never get my loops to look right, now I can just add this stamp onto the card.
To add some three dimensional texture I added one of the leaf flourishes from the Forever Flourishing Dies. I cut the leaves out of the Soft Sea Foam Velveteen paper, word of warning this stuff attracts dust like crazy some keep it wrapped up! To highlight the texture on the leaves I added a touch of Just Jade ink using a sponge duaber.
To finish the card I added the greeting Comfort and Hope stamped on a label of Mint Macaron cut from the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.
Thanks for popping by.
This card features one of my most longed for products a Stampin’ Blends marker in Melon Mambo. There have been so many times I’ve reached for this colour only to be dissappointed we don’t have it, so yay Stampin’ Up! I’m one happy girl.
I’ve pulled out the Ornate Style stamp set to colour that gorgeous floral arrangement. I used Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, So Saffron, Seaside Spray and the new markers in Just Jade which are lovely too.
The background paper comes from the new In Colour 2020-2022 and is in Just Jade. I added the greeting from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on a punched label from the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch on the 3/4″ width.
To finish the card I added three Mango Melody sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequins Collection, I love that these are self adhesive so you can just stick and go.
So yesterday my pre-order arrives with goodies from the new catalogue and the first thing I had to pull out and play with were the new In-Colours for 2020-22, this is one of my favourite things about Stampin’ Up! the five new colours every month….confession time I still have cardstock in every UK colour they’ve released.
If I had to sum up this years colours in one word I’d say FUN. They bright and cheerful and looking at them just makes me happy. So lets have a closer look.
First up is Bumble Bee which many of you will recognise from the Ornate Garden Suite. A bright sunny yellow which I think will fit in well with Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight and So Safffron,
Next up is Cinnamon Cider, a lovely rich chocolate brown. I can’t wait to get my hands on the Stampin’ Blends in this colour as its the prefect animal/tree brown.
This is Just Jade which is a lighter, slightly more muted version of Emerald Envy from a couple of years ago. I can see this working well with Mint Macaron and Shaded Spruce.
This is Magenta Madness and its much brighter than in the photo, think along the lines of Lemon Lime Twist, we’ve not really had a pink like this before so I’m looking forward to playing around with colour combinations for this one.
Last up is Misty Moonlight. I really like this one, its as close to a perfect true blue I think you could get and the perfect compliment to Night of Navy and Seaside Spray.
So there they are our new colours which one is your favourite and which colours do you think it’ll work well with?
This cards were made using the new patterns for the Designer Series Paper Assortment and a new stamp set called Tasteful Touches, which has lovely sentiments. These will be available to customers on June 3rd. If you can’t wait that long then you can join Stampin’ Up! and become part of my team and add them to you starter kit today.
