2017-19 In-Color Tranquil Tide card

This is the fifth and last in a series of posts featuring the five new 2017-19 Stampin' Up! In-Colors from the new Annual Catalogue which launched on 1 June 2017. 

The colour I'm featuring this week is Tranquil Tide.

Stampin' Up! Tranquil Tide Vertical Greetings card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Whisper White card base and layered some of the Tranquil Tide coloured Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper on top.

I then cut a strip of Whisper White card stock and used stamps from the Vertical Greetings stamp set to create the focal piece.  This was then layered onto a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock.  A piece of Basic Black Baker's Twine was wrapped around the bottom of the focal piece and a Glitter Enamel Dot added on top - I love the sparkle you get from the new Glittler Enamel Dots.  The focal piece was then adhered using foam dimensionals onto the card base to complete the card.

As a bonus during June, all orders of $450 or more - individual or grouped together with your friends' orders - will receive a bonus $45 in Stampin' Rewards to select free Stampin' Up! product of your choice.  For example, a $450 order would usually receive $45 to spend in rewards, but with the $45 June bonus, you'll now receive $90 to spend on any Stampin' Up! product of your choice for free. So if you have a large wish list, June is the perfect time to be rewarded.  Here's the rewards table for June:

To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Whisper White card base and layered some of the Lemon Lime Twist coloured Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper on top.

To create the centre focal piece, I diecut a large scallop oval in Lemon Lime Twist card stock and adhered it to the card base.  I then diecut a large stitched oval in Whisper White card stock and stamped it using the Happy Birthday gorgeous stamp set and adhered it to the scallop oval.  Lastly I diecut the detailed leaf from the Seasons Layers thinlits set, added a Gold 1/8" ribbon bow and adhered it to the oval  to complete the card.

2017-19 In-Color Fresh Fig card

This is the third in a series of posts featuring the five new 2017-19 Stampin' Up! In-Colors from the new Annual Catalogue which launched on 1 June 2017.

The colour I'm featuring this week is Fresh Fig.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Fig Happy Birthday Thinlits card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Whisper White card base onto which I layered some of the Fresh Fig coloured Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper.

I then used the Lots of Labels framelits to create the centre piece in Whisper White and added a Gold Foil border at the top and bottom of it too.  The Happy Birthday was diecut twice, once in Whisper White card stock and again in Fresh Fig card stock using the Happy Birthday Thinlits die.  The two sentiments were layered together to give a 'shadow' effect before being adhered to the centre piece. I coloured some of our Rhinestones with a Copic marker (Y26) to match the Gold Foil.  To finish the card I added one of the very cute Fresh Fig Mini Tassels with a Gold 1/8" ribbon bow.

As a bonus during June, all orders of $450 or more - individual or grouped together with your friends' orders - will receive a bonus $45 in Stampin' Rewards to select free Stampin' Up! product of your choice.  For example, a $450 order would usually receive $45 to spend in rewards, but with the $45 June bonus, you'll now receive $90 to spend on any Stampin' Up! product of your choice for free. So if you have a large wish list, June is the perfect time to be rewarded.  Here's the rewards table for June:

Have a dazzling birthday

One of the first products I bought from the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue was the new Embossing Paste.  I've previously used other brands of paste and was looking forward to trying the Stampin' Up! paste on this card.

Stampin' Up! Dazzling Embossing Paste card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Bermuda Bay card base and added a layer of Berry Burst card stock on top.

Taking a piece of Whisper White I then had some fun with the Embossing Paste.  Using the diamond mask from the Patterned Party Decorative Masks set, I applied the Embossing Paste over the Whisper White card stock. This paste is so smooth and easy to use.  It also dries fast - you don't have to wait long to continue making your project but do drop your palette knife and mask into water as soon as you've finished using them so it doesn't dry on your tools. Before the paste dried, I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter over the paste to give it extra shine.  Unfortunately the photo doesn't show how much this sparkles in real life.  I applied this Whisper White card stock piece onto the card base.

To create the focal cluster I diecut the flower from the May Flowers Framelits set and berry sprigs from the Flourish Thinlits set.  I then stamped the birthday sentiment from the Birthday Banners stamp set and built the cluster.  A Bitty Bow completed the card.

Here's a close up of the card.
