Artisan Design Team Blog Hop – Oh Happy Day

It’s official. The brand new 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue has started! So to celebrate, the Artisan Design Team are showcasing ‘new’. Let me introduce you to this year’s new In Colors…


Aren’t they amazing? I’m in love!

I wanted my projects today to be all about the colour but I also love pairing colour with some bold graphics as well. My ‘go-to’ product for this combination is the Moments Like These Project Life Card Collection. There are a lot of black and white cards in this collection which I then love to watercolour on.

My first card features Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy. I splashed on some ink and then let it dry. Don’t go too crazy on the water as the cards are not made for watercolour so too much liquid isn’t a good thing. Once dry, I embossed ‘Oh Happy Day’ from the new Scenic Sayings stamp set with Silver Embossing Powder. A few accessories – Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon, Silver Sequin Trim and a cute tassel I made from the new thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine – finished it off.

The next card features Flirty Flamingo and an old favourite, Rose Red. I created this card in the same way but used the adorable new Copper Embossing Powder along with the copper foil washi tape from the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape collection. I also embossed some Basic Pearl Jewels with the Copper Embossing Powder to use as tiny accents.

My last card features Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo. I started this card in the same way but somehow it needed more. I cut out the feature from the original Project Life card and then mounted it on top of another Project Life card. I love how the colours pop against the black. Some Gold Metallic Thread matches my Gold Embossed sentiment.

So, have you fallen in love with the new colours yet? Be sure to follow the rest of the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop to see lots of other fun new products. Your next stop is in Austria with the amazing Jessica Winter.
