Announcing the new Stampin' Up! In Colours for 2015-2016
I'm counting the days until the new annual Stampin' Up! UK catalogue launches on 2 June. My wish list is longer than long!!! However I've already got my hands on one or two products well maybe a few more than that and they include the new In Colours and this gorgeous stamp set You've Got It which includes this stunning flower. I've stamped it on vellum card stock with Staz On ink and then coloured it on the reverse using my ink pads and blender pen to take colour from the ink pad lid to the image. I also made a mask on copier paper of the flower head so that when I stamped the large background stamp that is also in the set it didn't go onto the whisper white card where I wanted the flower head to be.
To set off the flower I cut a frame using my trusty Stampin' trimmer and stamped it with the honeycomb stamp from Butterfly Basics in tone on tone colour i.e. mint macaron and also a little Gorgeous Grunge spatter using always artichoke ink. I also 'smudged' all the edges of the frame with mint macaron and a stampin' sponge.
Across the vellum I've added a strip of tip top taupe 'knicker' lace as some have called it and a bow of shredded burlap and a cute simple message using the Alphabet roller stamp.
I'm falling in love with the new colours of Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon. Here we are only missing Cucumber Crush which is wow!
Have a good day folks.
