Hello Stampin’ Friends! By now you have probably seen some of the fabulous new products in the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog. If you haven’t seen them, you can pop over to my website at www.lynndunn.stampinup.net or browse the online catalog available on the right hand side of this website. I am always so excited to see the new catalog and this year was no exception! One of my favorite things to check out are the new In Colors! Each year Stampin’ Up! retires a set of In Colors and then, of course, gives us five new ones! A fun little color refresh to look forward to each year! This year’s colors are some of my favorites…Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide. How fun?!?! Plus they have the new Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper which is all in the new colors! So, of course, I had to make a few quick cards with them.
To make these cards, I simply started with whisper white cardstock for the base of the cards. I cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of each of the different colored papers. Then, on the 5-1/4 inch side I cut off a 2 inch piece, flipped it over, so that when I adhered them to the card front I had two different patterns…one for the top of the card and one for the bottom. I then cut a 3/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white for each of the five cards, stamped a little sentiment on it, and adhered it across the seam where the 2 DSP patterns meet. For the finishing touch, I added one of the fun new bitty bows! They were quick and simple to create! Enjoy!
