In Colors and Lovely Inside & Out - Part Two

More cards that I made for May's Team meeting using new product! This is the second colour combo I picked out from Stampin' Up!'s suggested In Color combinations, and this combo includes my new fav colour - Fresh Fig.

This is my favourite card that I designed. The black looks neat embossed using the Hexagon 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions folder. This card was our make and take for the meeting.

And a second card using the same colours to show how versatile this stamp set can be!

Supplies
Stamps: Lovely Inside & Out
Colours: Fresh Fig, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Basic Black
Accessories: Hexagons 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder, Stitched Shaped Framelits, Clear Faceted Gems, Basic Black Baker's Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals

In Colors and Lovely Inside & Out - Part One

My upline Lisa asked me to create samples for the team meeting in May. She asked me to pick one of the new stamps that Stampin' Up! demonstrators can preorder this month. It was neat to try the new Lovely Inside & Out stamp set and the matching Lovely Woods Thinlits dies. During OnStage in April Stampin' Up! shared with demonstrators some colour combinations for the new 2017-2019 In Colors. I used some of their combinations for my cards.

Stamping Pool Party onto water colour paper makes it look like Mint Macaroon! A note about stamping on Vellum - it takes awhile for the ink to dry before you can adhere it to the card front.

The starburst in this stamp set reminded me of flowers. The easiest way to have a stem for the flowers was to use the branch from the new Colorful Season stamp set (another preorder product!).

Supplies
Stamps: Lovely Inside & Out, Colorful Season (for branches)
Colours: Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy
Accessories: Water colour paper, Vellum, Gold Foil Paper, 1-3/4" Circle punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

I cased this wonderful design from Julie Kettlewell.

Always an Adventure!



I am in love with the Always an Adventure and Outdoor Adventure framelits! But they are retiring at the end of May so make sure to order yourself any retiring items soon! They are great for any card or scrapbook page, and perfect for this pocket page layout from our camping trip in August 2003. I stamped the bear in black to match the colour of my dog's fur. On top of one picture of Hoover sitting in the grass I used the tree framelits to add some dimension to that picture.

Stamps: Always an Adventure
Colours: Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Basic Grey, Smokey Slate, Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Night of Navy
Accessories: Outdoor Adventure framelits, fine tip glue pen

May Crop - Carried Away

For National Scrapbook Day our Crop attendees received the Lift Me Up stamp set with the Sale-A-Bration Carried Away Designer Series Paper! I used a piece of designer series paper for the balloon cut out and then glued it onto a piece of window sheet to make it look like the balloon was floating in the air. This Project Life page uses Design 1.

This 3D item is created using the Envelope Punch Board. I found some wonderful directions on Pinterest from Debbie Henderson to create this box. The box is closed with Whisper White Baker's twine.


Do you see how Lisa Henderson showed how versatile this stamp and framelit set can be? It's great when there are so many uses for a product! Even if you don't have any pictures of hot air balloons you can chose any picture that will go with this layout.

You can join us on June 3rd in support of Crohns & Colitis - sign up here by visiting Crop Kingston's Facebook page - Lisa and I would love to see you there!

Supplies
Stamps: Lift Me Up, Layered Letters Alphabet
Colours: Mint Macaroon, Peekaboo Peach, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, Window Sheet
Accessories: Envelope Punch Board, Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing folder Stampin' Dimensionals, Whisper White Bakers Twine, Mint Macaroon 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon

Here is one of the pages I was able to complete. I'll have to spend some time sending pictures to print soon, hopefully before the next crop on June 3rd!

Supplies
Stamps: none
