I’ve been trying to make my cards a little more simpler for my card classes and have been playing with the Memories and More card packs and in particular, the Color Theory pack.
This is a great suite of cards and whilst it was created with pocket scrapbooking in mind, it is also fabulous for card marking.
As our Aussie card size is a little smaller than US card size, you do need to trim them a bit.
For my first card, all I added was a double layer of the congrats thinlit from the Sunshine Wishes thinlit in Berry Burst and Crushed Curry. And a little bit of Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle.
For my second card, I went with a bit more extra detail. I decided to use the Orchid Builder framelits and the matching Climbing Orchid stamp set. Aren’t they just stunning!
These cards are so great for creating a stunning card!
Make sure you check out the rest of the Memories & More cards at my online store.
If you would like to see more of the cards I’ve created using this pack, you will need to come to my card class on 20 January. Send me an email if you would like to come! firstname.lastname@example.org
Stampin’ Up! Product List
Isn’t the year just flying past? Can you believe we are in June already and have a new catalogue to play with? There are so many lovely new stamps and goodies in this catalogue.
We have a great challenge this week at Colour Inkspiration, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Marina Mist. Can I just mention that I’m really excited to be following Tanya this week! I’ve admired her work for many years and love the fabulous tutorials that she creates.
As always, my first thought is “what can I do with this?” Seeing as I had my new toys to play with, I went with the Climbing Orchid stamp set and the matching Orchid Builder Framelits. Oh, these are so fun to play with. Once I worked out how to create an orchid (harder than you think!!), I was on my way!!
I cut out two branches from the Seasonal Layers thinlits and trimmed one to make a larger branch. I did attempt to spritz the base layer of Soft Suede but I didn’t want to overdo it and as you can see, it’s very lightly distressed!! Ah well, some things work and some don’t!!
As you can tell, I started a new Stella and it came out very sparkly. You can never have too much sparkle!!
I also used one of the sentiments from the Colorful Seasons which I felt was appropriate. I love this stamp set as it is so versatile.
Next up is the fabulous Nikki Spencer.
We would love you to join in with this challenge and add your entry to our Facebook group, which you can join here.
