Stampin’ Up! Color Contour Amazing Card

Happy Friday y’all!!!!

Had to throw the “y’all” in honor of being in North Carolina for the week 😉

We have had a lovely time away and return tomorrow, but we’ll be back – we’ll definitely be back!

My card today uses a really cool technique today. You can find it on page 26 of the Annual Catalog for further reference.

Stampin Up Color & Contour Amazing Card

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock. I then took a Coastal Cabana pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper and matted it on a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock.

I then used the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a beautiful stitched scalloped layer. I ripped basic printer paper with a ragged edge for either side of this cardstock. Using the Blender Brushes, I added Coastal Cabana and Fresh Freesia color. Remove the paper and you’re left with this really artistic coloring.

Over this I stamped the image from the Color & Contour Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Black Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Lastly, I added a couple of Fresh Freesia Jewels next to the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Thank You Cards

Team pink vs. team purple

I mentioned it this week over on Facebook that people tend to either be team pink or team purple. I was surprised by everyone’s answers. They were pretty 50/50. You can vote for team pink or team purple here.

In honor of team pink vs. team purple, I made two cards today using the same layout, same product, but one pink and one purple. Let me know in the comments which one you prefer 🙂

My card starts off with one of our new In Colors, Polished Pink. I then used the brand new Scalloped Contours Dies to cut out a scalloped piece of Basic White cardstock. I used the same dies, the next size smaller, to cut out a scalloped Melon Mambo pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.

This particular pattern is part of the new pack included in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. You get a sampling of it, and all the new Designer Series Paper for that matter, in my Product Share. You can check out all the details here.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour Stamp Set in Melon Mambo ink. I used another die from the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut it out.

You’ll notice that the die itself is bigger than the sentiment. Using a simple method, I made the die fit the sentiment. Although not this exact die, check out this video here to see how to make a die fit a sentiment better.

Next I stamped the floral image in Memento Black ink and the inside floral image in Polished Pink. I adhered this to a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet and then cut it out using the same dies. I then wrapped around a piece of Polished Pink ribbon in a knot.

This ribbon is gorgeous, available in all five 2021-2023 In Colors beginning May 4th and in my Product Share as well.

Here’s a look at the same card, same layout but using Fresh Freesia and Highland Heather colors.

So the question is, are you team pink or team purple?

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Card & Video

All this week we’re talking new In Colors.

Today’s card is one I made last week live and it uses 3 out of 4 of the new In Colors – Fresh Freesia, Soft Succulent, and Evening Evergreen.

It uses brand new product from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, the Pansy Patch Bundle. This is a really fun bundle – using either multistep stamping or layering die cut images over one another, you create really beautiful pansies.

I shared a Pansy Patch Key this week in my weekly Tips & Updates email. It’s a great guide to helping you know what goes with what when making your posies. I’m going to share it again this upcoming week so make sure you sign up for this weekly email if you haven’t done so already!

I’ll be back with another card tonight live! It’s actually a fun fold card using more new product from the new Annual Catalog. You’re not going to want to miss it!!!

Join me at 7:30 EST over on my Facebook page. You’ll have a chance to win the card, so don’t miss out!
