Thinking of the New In Colors!

Before I share the new Starter Kit promotion, I want to let you know that I will be on vacation for the next week and a half.  But I will be posting again beginning on May 23rd, as long as all goes well.  I could not talk my Hubby or the Kitty children into doing cards and posts.  That is just not right.  LOL!!!

So while I am away, I hope you will take a look at the awesome Starter Kit promotion.  The new In Colors are all beautiful.  It is tough to pick a favorite from this group.  But with the promotion, you can get a bundle of In Color products.  They are all listed in the promotion information below.  And even though I will not be posting, I will be periodically checking email throughout the day.  It would be really hard to totally disconnect!

Flowers and Butterflies

AnToday’s card is a little bit of a Fun Fold paired with Symbol of Fortune Designer Series Paper.  And the wonderful Flowing Flowers stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up!, Symbols of Fortune, Flowing Flowers, Jackie Beers

 

Today’s card is my entry as part of the design team for the Make My Monday Challenge.  Springtime is the theme of this challenge.  And these flowers with butterflies say Spring for me.  You can join our challenge as well.  Simply click on the icon and you will be taken to the blog.

Paper

The beautiful DSP is the star of this card.  It is the Symbols of Fortune Designer Series paper from the Mini Catalog.   This flowers and butterfly piece is my favorite piece of the pack.  And the piece for the layer on the right hand side is the back of the first.  I went with a very neutral Crumb Cake for the base and pulled the Evening Evergreen for the layers.  There are several color options available to be pulled from this beautiful paper.

Stamps

With the gorgeous paper on this card I wanted a simpler stamp for the focal layer.  My choice is a favorite from the Mini Catalog and it is the Flowing Flowers stamp set.  That gorgeous, yet simple, flower is all the card needed.  By using the Calypso Coral with the flower it allowed another complimentary color.  And the simple “Hey” is from the Best Year stamp set.  Just the tiny word was enough of an added punch.

Embellishments

To add a bit of sparkle for the flower the Iridescent Rhinestones for the center fit perfectly.  And to mimic the sweet butterflies of the paper,  one of the beautiful Brushed Brass Butterflies is flying in.  These little guys add a touch of elegance to any card.

Measurements

This fun fold can be used vertically or horizontally with the focal layer moved around as well.  With the focal layer placed a bit higher normal it shows the most of the butterflies on the paper.  The Crumb Cake card base is cut to 5 1/2 X 7 1/2 and scored at 3 1/4.  This allows the side strip of DSP to show.  The Evening Evergreen layers are 3 X 5 1/4 and 1 X 5 1/4.  And the DSP is cut to 2 3/4 X 5 and 3/4 X 5.   The smaller strips are adhered to the inside White layer which is 4 X 5 1/4. Finally the focal layer is cut 3 X 3 and 2 3/4 X 2 3/4.

Young and Cool

As awesome as the New Annual Catalog is, there are still great products available in the current Mini Catalog.  I have combined the sets Catch You Later, Bragworthy, and Artfully Layered together for a fun card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Catch You Later, Bragworthy, Artfully Layered, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

These monkeys are so fun!  I immediately think of hanging out with friends.  So that is the direction I went.  And of course the sentiment takes it the same direction.  Yes, I did use three different stamp sets to create this fun card.  The monkeys and sentiment are from the Catch You Later stamp set.  It is full of similar fun images and sentiments.  And the background I created was using the Artfully Layered set with the large leaf and smaller heart leaves.

And to share the third stamp set, the Bragworthy set, here is a view of the inside.  It screams “Old Friends” to me!

 

 

I realize that this sentiment does not fit everyone.  But it definitely works with me and my friends!  This stamp set includes six unique and fun sentiments for different occasions.

Colors

To carry the outdoors theme I wanted a green color.  But instead ended up with a blue / green by using Bermuda Bay.  This is an awesome color that I use often.  And to pair with the monkeys’ colors, I added the layer of Crumb Cake.  For the stamped backgrounds I did tone on tone for both Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake.  The Crumb Cake images are stamped repeatedly before re-inking.

Embellishments

To give some added emphasis for the sentiment, I used the Double Oval Punch for a bit of an extra layer.  And as a more masculine “bling”, I used the New Brushed Metallic Adhesive Dots.  By adding one to each of the focal layers it brings them together.  And I know I generally do at least three of my blings.  This card just did not like adding a third one.

Sweet Thanks

For today’s card I am focused on just one of the New In Colors.  It is the Sweet Sorbet.  And it is as sweet as the name sounds.

 

Stampin' Up!, Nature's Print, Pretty Prints, Tailor Made Tags, Sweet Sorbet, Jackie Beers

Papers and Colors

Stampin’ Up! has outdone themselves again with some of the gorgeous new DSP.  This paper is Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper and it is outstanding!  The faded looking images remind me of playing with leaves, construction paper, and the sun as a science project.  Although their version is so much better!  This is the new Sweet Sorbet In Color.  You can see the darker shade of it towards the center of the print.  And this pack of paper has all of the New In Colors included.  It is a must have in my book.

Since the faded look in the papers is more Vanilla than White, I went with Very Vanilla for the tag and layer.  And the lovely Sweet Sorbet is the card base.  The full strength color was too dark on the tag, so it is stamped off for the Fern you see.  However, it matches the lighter shades of the paper even better.

Stamps, Dies, etc

Surprisingly this is the same stamp set as yesterday’s card, Nature’s Print stamp set.  And the little fern on the tag is the same one from that card.  With this paper I did not want to cover it up with stamping.  That really is a dilemma sometimes with the papers we have!  Instead I went with one of the smaller of the Tailor Made Tags Dies.  It was large enough to hold the sentiment and part of the Fern.

To finish this sweet card I added a bit of the Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon to the tag.  Not only does it add some shimmer but it adds yet another shade of the color.  Each of these new colors I have played with have been my “current favorite”!  And now this Sweet Sorbet is my Favorite!!

Happy Thoughts

I just finished placing my order from the Annual Catalog!  With a mile long list, almost everything that is new, it took me a while.  Hopefully you are ready to place your first order as well.

Today’s card is from one of the new bundles available.  I feel the new Nature’s Prints Bundle will be a hit with the wonderful leaves and great dies.  Especially the frame and sentiments.

Stampin' Up!, Nature's Print, Natural Prints, Fern Embossing Folder, Jackie Beers

 

Bundle

The Nature’s Prints Bundle is a beautiful leafy set with some awesome sentiments.  It reminds me of Forever Fern, which has been very popular.  As you can  see in the photo, this is my type of sentiment.  I love the mix of fonts.  And this is such a sweet thought for someone.  Of course having matching dies is awesome.  These two pieces are stamped and then die cut.  Both are layered directly onto the embossed layer.

Embossing and Colors

The Fern 3D Embossing Folder is part of the Suite of products that includes the Nature’s Prints Bundle.  This also includes the gorgeous Sun Prints Designer Series Paper.  Since I did not have the paper available, I went with a similar color pallet.  For the embossed layer I used Gray Granite.  It shows the embossing well.  And the embossing has some “highs and some lows” which helps with the depth

The card base is Pacific Point which pairs great with the Gray Granite.  To carry on with the color, I stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite as well.  And it is die cut using a frame from the Die set.  Again, since I did not have newer DSP, I went with the Brights DSP from last catalog in Pacific Point.  The strip measures 3 1/2 X 1/2 and it is raised using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The gem is the just retired Blue Gems, but I am sure there are new ones to use now.
