It’s been a while since I’ve posted to a challenge, and this week was a perfect time to catch this one, as I am using the new In-Colors to make a flower card for this week’s theme, and then I’m sending it off for a team swap! Perfect timing! 🙂
You may know every year Stampin’ Up comes out with 5 new In-Colors, and they are good for two years… so there is plenty of time to get to know, love, and use these new colors! The new catalog starts June 1st, so if you need one, contact me!
The Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch PCCC194 this week is Flowers:
I used all 5 of the new In-Colors and a fancy fold to create my flowery card.
The new names are Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim, and Emerald Envy. Here is a quick look at all of them together:
And…. here is the front of my card, which I had to hold closed for the picture…
I used the Botanical Builder Framelits for all of the flowers and leaves. This is such a cool set of framelits since there are so many sizes and styles of flowers and leaves in it! I sponged a little bit of black around the edges of the flowers. Rhinestones are the centers.
The sentiment is from the B.Y.O.P. stamp set, which is great for pairing with gift cards – but you can see it doesn’t have to be only for that. I stamped it in Versamark on vellum, and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The flower paper under the vellum is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the black sheet with little flowers all over it.
Here are some more pics of the card, to give you a better idea how it opens up:
If you missed it, I also have a card class coming up next weekend, and still have room! Take a look at your calendars, and let me know! I will be featuring some retiring items and have some fantastic deals on my past retired stamps and supplies that I need to pass on to others so I can make room for some new stuff. 🙂
Thanks for looking!
