Sneak Peak #3: Stampin' Up! 2016-18 In-Color Dapper Denim

This is the third of five posts, one for each of the new Stampin' Up! 2016-18 In-Colors being released in the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue on 1 June 2016.  This sneak peek lets you view the new colours and some of the new stamp sets being released with the new annual catalogue.  If you are interested in Stampin' Up! products and are located in Australia, please contact me as I'd be happy to assist you.

I was selected by Stampin' Up! to make 20 card samples in total using the new colours for the demonstrator only OnStage event held in Sydney on 16 April and my brief was to highlight the new colour.  Below are the four Dapper Denim coloured cards that I created for #OnStage2016.

Colour #3 Dapper Denim


Dapper Denim is a versatile colour which works well with many of the other Stampin' Up! colours such as Calypso Coral, Marina Mist and Smoky Slate.
 
 
This card features Dapper Denim card stock, 2016-18 In-Color DSP stack and classic ink along with the Party Popup thinlets. I used the inlaid diecut technique for the 'Hip Hip Hooray' focal piece.  This required diecutting the Hip Hip Hooray thinlet twice, once in Dapper Denim and again in Calypso Coral.  I adhered the Dapper Denim diecut onto the card base then inlaid the words and confetti using the Calypso Coral pieces into the diecut. I stamped the balloons from the Balloon Celebration stamp set and punched them out using the Balloon Bouquet punch and adhered them to the card.  Some strands of thick Calypso Coral twine were added to the balloons too.
 
 
This card features Dapper Denim card stock, 2016-18 In-Color DSP stack and classic ink along with the Love You Lots, Layering Love and You've Got This stamp sets. I used the You've Got This background stamp which was inked in Soft Sky and some Dapper Denim sponged around the edges of the stamp to create the background for the hedgehogs. I watercoloured the hedgehogs in Smoky Slate and Peekaboo Peach. The sentiment from the Layering Love stamp set was also stamped using Dapper Denim ink and layered onto White bakers twine and a small rectangle of Peekaboo Peach cardstock.
 
 
This card features Dapper Denim card stock, 2016-18 In-Color DSP stack and classic ink along with the Sitting Here, Perpetual Birthday Calendar and Flurry of Wishes stamp sets. I stamped the swing in Archival Basic Gray, then stamped, watercoloured and fussy cut the cushions, cat and bird too. Snowflakes from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set were randomly stamped to create a background for this card.  The large snowflakes were punched using the Snow flurry punch and layered over the DSP and sentiment. Some Wink of Stella and Rhinestones on the snowflakes add some sparkle to the card.
 
 
This card is for a special man in my life and features Dapper Denim card stock, 2016-18 In-Color DSP stack and classic ink along with the Guys Greetings and Crazy About You stamp sets.  I stamped the anchors on the vertical banner in Smoky Slate.  I then layered circles over the banner and interlocked the horizontal banner into the circle.  Some linen thread wrapped around both banners and the top of the anchor gives the card a rustic touch.  I've long admired Becca Feekan's cards and she has over the years created some cards using interlocking circles and this is what inspired me to adapt that concept and create the interlocking circle and banner.  You could adapt this card's design to any occasion.
 
I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek of some new stamp sets and the Dapper Denim 2016-18 In-Color. Check back later for more new In-colour sneak peeks.

Sneak Peak #2: Stampin' Up! 2016-18 In-Color Peekaboo Peach

I was fortunate to be selected by Stampin' Up! to make card samples using the brand new Stampin' Up! 2016-18 In-Colors for the demonstrator only #OnStage2016 event held in Sydney on 16 April. 

I received a couple of new stamp sets along with the five new colours and was asked to make 20 card samples (four of each colour) to highlight the new 2016-18 In-Colors.

This is the second of five posts, one for each colour giving you a sneak peek of the new colours and some of the new stamp sets being released with the new annual catalogue on 1 June 2016.  If you are interested in Stampin' Up! products and are located in Australia, please contact me as I'd be happy to assist you.

Colour #2: Peekaboo Peach



Stampin' Up! #OnStage2016 Peekaboo Peach 2016-18 In-Color

Peekaboo Peach is a lovely apricot colour which works well with many of the other Stampin' Up! colours such as Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip.


This card features Peekaboo Peach card stock and classic ink along with the new Sitting Here stamp set.  This is a terrific stamp set for creating scenes like the one above.  I used sponging and watercolouring techniques to create this card.  The overhanging trees were created using the current In the Meadow stamp set. I fussy cut several of the stamped images used on this card to layer them and add dimension.


This corner fold card features Peekaboo Peach card stock, 2016-18 In-Color DSP stack and classic ink along with the new Sitting Here stamp set. I dry embossed the front of the card with the Elegant Dots TIEF for some added texture.  The 'happy birthday' sentiment from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set was stamped in Tip Top Taupe and layered onto a Pumpkin Pie banner.


This card features Peekaboo Peach 30.5cmx30.5cm 2016-18 In-Color DSP stack and classic ink along with the new Gift of Love hostess stamp set.  I used the masking technique when stamping the flowers on this card. I also used Chocolate Chip classic ink and card stock and added a decorative touch to the top corner with the retiring Curvy Corner Trio punch. Some pearls and white bakers twine complete the card.


This card features the Peekaboo Peach 30.5cmx30.5cm 2016-18 In-Color DSP stack and classic ink along with the new Layering Love stamp set.  I sponged Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight & Pool Party onto some Whisper White card stock then created the butterflies from the sponged card stock by using the Bitty Butterfly punch or Butterflies thinlets.   Some Black bakers twine and a few Rhinestones add a little sparkle to the card.
 
I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek of some new stamp sets and the Peekaboo Peach 2016-18 In-Color. Check back later for further colour sneak peeks.
