A warm welcome to this month’s Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop where this month the Design Team are sharing New Colour schemes with you. As a sneak peek from the up coming new catalogue, we are using new colours, with old colours or returning colours. I am sharing some new springtime colours with you for this Congratulations card.
These thinlits dies just sang to me when I saw that they were on the Stampin’ Up! Pre Order list for Demonstrators. I couldn’t wait to use them. It’s a set that comes complete with a beautiful butterfly, but it was this intricate piece that I was drawn to most. Now to decide what colours I would choose. Stampin’ Up! have made it so much harder for us to choose, as there are even more beautiful colours to choose from. It was there in the name … Springtime Colours were what I needed and Soft Sea Foam was where my combination started.
As in the name, this soft colour, is just gorgeous, but what colours would I choose for the flowers?
The day I set to making this, I had used the coordinating stamp set from this bundle to stamp the flower. Using the three step stamping technique, I layered up a few colours and wanted to recreate this, with the dies. I think it’s quite effective and indeed abstract.
Soft Sea Foam is a new colour, launching on 1st June, Powder Pink a current In Color that carries over and Flirty Flamingo a current In color that would have bene leaving us, but is actually returned within he main colour families.
The flowers I’ve used are cut from the clusters within the large die, but cut from the two pinky coloured cardstocks. The leaves didn’t seem to work for me on this card, so I turned to my much loved Leaf Punch and added some Soft Sea Foam and Vellum leaves for some texture and interest. Add a spot of silver metallic thread and a few Rhinestones and I was well on the way to a very special card.
Using the Stitched Basic Shape Framelits, I die cut a square and then lining up the edges, die cut it again, but down into a rectangular shape. The sentiment came from the Petal Palette stamp set.
All the sentiments were stamped using Garden Green ink, with the internal sentiment, stamped off, before re-inking up just the bottom line. I really liked the two tone that this created.
I’ve fallen in love with the colours that we will have from the beginning of June and will love sharing them with my customers and you. I love how this set can be used as a whole, or cut down for the various elements within the pattern.
Well, I hope you have found my share inspiring and that you’ll look forward to creating with these colours too. I love colour and I hope you’ll love our new colour palette as much as I do.
Now lets see what fabulous inspiring colour combinations the other girls have got to share with us. I can’t wait to see what they’ve been up to.
Enjoy the rest of the hop and have a fabulous Springtime weekend.
