Fabulous Flamingo & Tropical Chic Play Together

Fabulous Flamingo Tropical Chic Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Sometimes 2 stamp sets simply look like they are just meant to be used together.  In today's card, you'll notice how nicely Fabulous Flamingo and Tropical Chic stamp sets play together.   I love all the cheerful colors together And I really like the add the texture of the Tropical Thinlit dies used as embossing tools with the Big Shot Embossing Mats.

 

 Watch this Stampin' Up! Video that explains how you can use your dies for embossing.

 My Flamingo was stamped in 3 different layers.  The bottom or base layer was stamped with Powder Pink Ink.  And the second more detailed layer was stamped with Flirty Flamingo Ink.  The final outlined layer was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink.

I used sponge daubers to add two tone layers of ink for my Tropical Chic Flowers and foliage.  The flowers were ink with Mango Melody and Berry Burst Ink.  And the Foliage takes on a two toned look by partially sponging Shade Spruce Ink and stamping on Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock.  I cut a few additional fronds from Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce Card Stock.

Petals & More Card Rocks with New Colors

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Wow, I'm loving the new color Stampin' Blends.  They color like a dream.  The outline stamps of the Petal Palette stamp set were a perfect opportunity to play.

Just look at all those beautiful colors-Highland Heather, Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Punch Light.  My roses were colored with various mixes of pinks with splashes of Pineapple Punch thrown in for good measure.  The little purple bell flowers were colored with the lovely Highland Heather.  It's really a gorgeous purple pair.  And I have to admit, was just itching to try the spirited Granny Apple Green Blends on the leaves.

The coordinating Petals and More dies gave me just the right amount of pop.  For a fun touch, I inserted a panel of Granny Apple Green Card Stock on the inside.  I splattered just a hint of Pool Party ink across my card to perk up the white space.  The last bit of dazzle is a few random Glitter Enamel Dots in Granny Apple Green.  Let me just say, the pictures don't do the enamel dots justice.  They really are quite stunning.  The frayed twine is Nature's twine.  It just looks like it belongs.  Tip:  Just separate the strands with your fingers.

I'm having so much fun with all my new Stampin' Blend colors!  I feel a video tutorial pushing its way into the future. 

Note:  The "just a note" sentiment is actually from a different stamp set called Flourishing Phrases.

 

Have a fabulous day,

Color Your World Bulletin Board

Animal Outing Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

I'm really crushin' on all the beautiful Stampin' Up! colors since the Color Revamp.  So today, I decided to make a Color Your World Bulletin Board with all 53 Stampin' Up! Colors.  It looks so happy hanging in my Craft Room.  

Stampin' Up! Colors Bulletin Board

 I punched 2 daisies each for all 53 colors.  Then, I curled all 106 daisies with my bone folder for a double layered flower.  Of course, each flower needed a label to identify its color!

My tile letters were cut with my Large Letters Dies.   Mr. Giraffe and Mr. Rhino are stamps from the Animal Outing stamp set.  I colored them with my Stampin' Blends.  Wow, I love my blends.  In case you missed the announcement, all Stampin' Blends are now available for purchase including all the yummy new colors.  Would you like to see a Blends tutorial?  My  new colors are on their way to my house, so I will be itching to share. 

The Tropical Leaves are a combination of Granny Apple Green, Call Me Clover and Shaded Spruce.  They were stamped and cut with the Tropical Chic Stamp set and the Tropical Dies.

 Here a full view of my  Color Your World Bulletin Board.  How many colors can you identify?  Can you name all 53 colors?

 


Robin's Flower Garden

Inspirations for today's project came for Nicole Kunzig and her Beach Catalog Party Displays which can be found here.  She had some gorgeous samples on display.  The ribbons of color on my bulletin board also remind me in my flower garden in July.
