Hooray for the new Stampin' Up! Catalog
. The 2015-2016 catatlog was launched yesterday but I was called into work, so my plans for a blog post had to be postponed. When the new in colors are released, I like to make a card using only those colors. The 2015-2017 colors
include: Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder. These colors had me a little stumped with using them all together but The Challenge sketch at Always Playing with Paper
saved me!!! I used five flags from the sketch to represent each new color. The patterned paper is from the Cherry on Top Paper Stack and the stamp set used is called Sprinkles of Life. A portion of the proceeds from the Sprinkle of Life stamp set go to Ronald McDonald House Charities which made it easy to justify my purchase. :)
The second challenge I used to make this card is from The Paper Players
and this week they have a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. I used the bottom row across, die-cut (ovals), patterned paper and any shade of yellow (Delightful Dijon). To lighten the Dijon color on the ice cream cone, I sponged on some Craft Stampin' Ink and rubbed it into the cardstock really well. I fussy-cut the cone and used the new Tree Builder punch to punch out the ice cream. The final touch was adding the three silver sequins. That's it!
