Hi, there! I hope everyone is finally getting a tatse of Spring. Here in Greensboro, Dogwoods and Azaleas are in full bloom. So, I wanted to add a touch a spring to this card 🙂 Today’s post features new products from the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. These items will be available to order on June 1st. But wait, or should I say, for those that can’t wait ;)… the new 2018 In Color Collection will be available as part of a Customer Early Release promotion: Share What You Love Suite beginning May 1 – May 31, 2018.
I am so excited about the new In Colors!! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them and make vibrant, rainbow colored cards 🙂 So let me introduce the Stampin’ Up! 2018 In Colors:
I hope you love them as much as I do!! Today’s card focuses on these bright colors. It also features my favorite Host Set, Hand Delivered, which you can earn by hosting an online workshop or placing an order using my monthly Hostess Code.
To create the rainbow feel without an actual rainbow, I decided to do rainbow stripes with a flow:) In comes, the new LilyPad stamp set that includes a waterlines stamp and Viola… rainbow stripes with a flow.
Stampin’ Up!’s new stamp positioning tool, the Stamparatus, is a Game Changer!!!! Love, Love, Love it! It takes the other stamp positioning tools up a notch or two. Rather than go into all the details, I will do a separate post on it, but here’s a link to a video to see for yourself 😉
Ok, back to today’s card 🙂 I used the Stamparatus to easily create the rainbow stripes with a flow. I also used it to help line up the 4 separate stamps that create the balloon image. Once I stamped the image, I used a watercolor brush and the In Color ink pads to color the image. I used very little water to create a brighter look. This can also be done with Aqua Painters. I have incuded a link below to detailed instructions including a supply list. I definitely see more bright cheery cards in my future!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please come back again soon!! Until then Peace, Love and Rainbows!!!
