RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour
In Color Bundle
One of the best features of the Stampin' Up! Catalogs are the awesome bundles that we offer. The In Color Bundle is a great way to acquire ALL the In Color Stamp Pads along with an assortment of In Color Cardstock. Just think about it… You get everything you need to get started with stamping with 5 awesome Stampin' Up! colors along with coordinating cardstock. Did I mention that I just love Stampin' Up!
Project #1 – You've Got This In Color Background
This elegant card features Tip Top Taupe as the base for the card front with Whisper White attached to the card front base. I stamped a Tip Top Taupe background using the You've Got This Stamp Set then I added a Melon Mambo accent using the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set. I also used Old Olive for the circular stamped embellishment behind the sentiment.
The Sentiment is stamped with Tip Top Taupe then cut out using the new Lots of Labels Framelits then bordered with the 1 3/8" Circular Punch using Blushing Bride cardstock. I then added a piece of the 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon in the background to help set off the sentiment.
For some finishing touches, I cut out some Melon Mambo Flowers using the Cutie Pie Thinlits. Each flower is then embellished using a pearl. I also added some little pearls randomly on the card front.
Project #2 – Garden in Bloom
I just LOVE the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set! This set just arrived and I was so excited to play with it and show off some of the NEW In-Colors. The stem and leaves use the Cucumber Crush and the flower on this card is Watermelon Wonder. The "Hello" features the Greetings Thinlits cut from Watermelon Wonder and the sentiment stamped under the Hello is also Watermelon Wonder. In the background I added a little stamped background using the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set with the Cucumber Crush.
I just love the bright, cheerful colors of these 2015-2017 In Colors! Pearl Embellishments finish off the card. Cucumber Crush is the base for the card front. This is just a fun, easy and whimsical card.
Project #3 – Garden In Bloom
So, I couldn't stop with just one card using the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set. This card really replicates the previous card but I stepped it up just a little by stamping two flowers. The flowers feature the Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder In Colors with the stems stamped using the Cucumber Crush. The card front base is the Cucumber Crush.
The sentiment is also from the Garden In Bloom Stamp Set and cut out using the Lots of Labels Framelits. I used the new Essentials Paper Piercing Kit on the Lots of Labels tag. For added interest, I wrapped some Linen Thread behind the tag. The pearls are then added as the finishing touch!
