Modern color combination

I love a good card challenge and this weeks Fab. Friday challenge is just awesome!!!  I have always loved the design team for this super fun Card Challenge!  That being said, I have not played along with them in a very long time!!! It was the perfect sketch for a modern card I had been working on!! Yeppie!!!!!

Fab Friday Challenge


The Creative Way – A Product Feature

I am having so much fun playing with color combinations using the New color Granny Apple Green!  Today’s color combination would be perfect for modern Christmas, spring, and summer crafting!!!  I really like the fresh feel of Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, and Gray Granite!!!

Modern and Fresh Color Combination

Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, and Gray Granite

I know, I’m supposed to be convincing you that Granny Apple Green is the boom!  Because, it truly is!!! But, I just have to tell you today’s card features my most favorite new item! It is the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!!! This embossing folder is beyond amazing!! It leaves a soft texture that is somewhere between linen paper and textured wallpaper from days of old.

This picture does not do this embossing folder justice!  It really is beautiful, promise!!

So, the fresh and modern color combination and the super cool embossing folder were combined with a great stamp set Varied Vases!!

I truly adore this modern stamp set!! The vases just makes me happy!! And the sweet flower are just perfect!! Even though I did not use them today…

A Modern Hello Card

  • The first thing was to stamp the outlines of the vases with Gray Granite.
  • The second step was to use Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green to add color!
  • The Hello was stamped in Granny Apple Green using the Accented Blooms stamp set and the Tailored Tag Punch
  • The Gray Granite layer is embossed with the super cool new embossing folder Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions

No card is complete with out a coordinating envelope!!

Hello Card and Envelope

The envelope was created using the same process as the background of the card. First stamping the gray outlines of the vases. Then randomly filling in the vases with color!

New catalog day!!!

Today is the launch of the All New Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog!!! I am so excited about the New products!! There are so many exciting new products and stamp sets! This catalog defiantly has something for everyone!!! I am even more excited to be sharing an all new stamp set with you today to celebrate!!

Accented Blooms

Accented Blooms Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!

I adore this stamp set so very much!! It is so very classic.  Yet it definitely has a very modern feel to it! This is my favorite combination of styles for a stamp set!  So, I know I had to have it!

The Creative Way – A Product Feature

One of the products that I’m most excited about is that the Stampin’ Blends are back.  The colors have been on backorder for sometime now.  And very soon we will have all new colors available!!! Yeppie. Because I just love this product so very much, I decided that the Stampin’ Blends were going to be the feature product for The Creative Way in June!!

Always thinking of you

  • The bloom was stamped with memento ink on shimmery white paper
  • Then colored with the Stampin’ Blends
  • I learned that the blends move very well on this paper.  So you have to be very careful or it will bleed.  Also, have your colorless blender handy to fix mistakes
  •  The next step was to color the background. For this I used two prismacolor markers, pewter and light jade
  • The Sentiment was heat embossed with black embossing powder!  I am super excited that we have black embossing powder back

One of my favorite things to do with my Stampin’ Blends is to combine them with my prismacolor alcohol markers.  This allows me to have even more variety of colors and it is just fun to come up with different color combinations! As the Stampin’ Up! Blend family of colors grows, I am sure I will do less of this.  If you have copics or other alcohol markers then the Stampin’ Blends will be the perfect addition to your collection!  They will give you perfect coordinating with your Stampin’ Up! Colors!!! How exciting is that!

The new Soft Sea Foam is a beautiful green! I am so happy that Stampin’ Up!  added it to their new Color Collection!  You can find it in the wonderfully updated Subtles!! Today it was paired with Basic Black and Daffodil Delight

Thank you for stopping by!! I hope you enjoy shopping the New catalog today!!!  Go and have fun and live creatively!!!
