Stampin' Up! 2018 In Colors - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Welcome back to a week All About Color! I’m featuring some of the brand new colors Stampin’ Up! is revealing in the new Annual Catalog which goes live on June 1st. Today’s card uses 3 of the new 2018-2020 In Colors. There are five new In Colors. Yesterday we looked at two of them and today we are looking at the remaining three colors!

Stampin' Up! Awesomely Artistic Card - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

To illustrate these three beautiful colors I’m using the retiring Awesomely Artistic stamp set. This has been a favorite of mine for several years (you’re probably noticing that I have a lot of favorites!!). I love the fern-like leaf stamps in this set, as well as the cluster of blossoms. And, it has a stamp of splotchy dots that I’ve used often on many cards.

The colors for today are Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, and Call Me Clover. At first I didn’t think I could create a card using all three. But once I got started I saw that they blended very nicely! Now remember, we have a new design for our ink pads – easier to open, with an added “de-foamer” ingredient. This new formulation goes on clear and smooth!

Detailed Instructions to Make Today’s Card

The cluster of blossoms was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder on Shimmery White Card Stock. Then I washed over the embossed blossoms with an Aqua Painter and Grapefruit Grove ink. I went back in with a Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Marker to color the centers of the blossoms and some of the leaves. Then I fussy cut the bunch of blossoms.

On a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock I stamped the leaves in Call Me Clover ink and stamped the dots in Grapefruit Grove. I then adhered the bunch of blossoms over the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The frame around the sentiment was stamped in Lovely Lipstick, the sentiment was stamped in Grapefruit Grove and the whole thing fussy cut and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Iridescent Sequins were added for bling! Then this piece was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card base (Whisper White card stock cut at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1//4″).
