Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that have been or are currently on the Artisan Design Team. We love sharing our passion for creating with all of you and hope to inspire along the way.
With the new Catalogue there was an amazing core colour refresh and the Stampin' Up! colour families were changed and some fantastic new colours were added as well as the return of some old favourites. So for our challenge this month we were to use NEW or RETURNING colour favorites from the Colour Refresh.
For my colour palette I chose the returning In Colour Blackberry Bliss from a few years ago, as well the new 2018-2020 In Colour Grapefruit Grove, new core colour Soft Sea Foam and an old favourite Soft Suede. When I sat down to make my projects for this month I had no idea what colour combo I would end up with! It all started with a photo of my youngest when she was only 3 years old.
So cute right? I had spent the better half of a week cleaning up and purging my craft room and came across this printed 5x7 photo, sigh they grow up so fast, don't they? I just knew I had to scrap it so I pulled out various packs of DSP and decided on Tranquil Textures. I also wanted to use the Memories and More Delightfully Detailed Card Pack. I just love how versatile this product line is, perfect for pocket pages and traditional scrapping.
I used a lot of layering of papers and patterns for my layout. The base is a piece of 12x12 Whisper White card stock then I added an 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 piece of DSP. Soft Sea Foam is definitely one of my new favourite colours. I stamped directly onto the DSP along the bottom of the page using one of my all time top favourite stamp sets; Dandelion Wishes. The journaling reads " My wish for you is that you always remember you have wings and were born to fly".
I added 2 3x4 cards from the Memories and More card pack to the page and layered several piece of DSP behind the photo. The banner flag is also a card from the pack that I cut up.
The butterfly was die cut from watercolour paper and lightly coloured with the following inks; Blackberry Bliss, Soft Sea Foam, Soft Suede, Grapefruit Grove using an Auquapainter.
Now since I had so many supplies pulled out from making the scrapbook page I decided the make a card using the same elements.
The card was super easy to put together as I used one of the 4x6 cards from the Memories and More pack as well as the awesome new Memories and More note cards and envelopes.
The "thanks" as well as the cute little label are part of the card pack sticker sheets. There is a vellum butterfly behind the label, again lots of layering. I also used my Clear Wink of Stella pen and flicked the brush tip several times over the card to create a glittery splatter.
Well that it from me, be sure to go the the next blog on the hop. I am sure the amazingly talented Cathy Caines will wow you with what she has to share!
