Hello! It’s my birthday and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than a blog hop with my fabulous stamping friends.
Actually, I’m feeling very loved on my birthday evening as I hop with two wonderful groups of stamping friends.
This is blog hop B – the second list. There’s another thread which features blog hop A – the first list (click here to visit). You don’t want to miss the creations on the other side!!!
There’s no theme for tonight. Everyone is simply sharing with us something they’ve made that they love. In this crazy busy life, we sometimes need an excuse just to create for fun, for love and to be creative.
My birthday falls at a wonderful time of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue cycle. I get to spoil myself each year with new Stampin’ Up! and call them birthday presents.
Part of my present to myself was all the new Stampin’ Up! colours – In Colors, returning colours and new colours!!! You can read all about the Colour Revamp here.
For the first time since they arrived, I had a play with the 2018-2020 In Colors. Can you believe it – “2020”. I still remember when this was so far away!!! I also remember Y2K (year 2000) and the technology panic!
The 2018-2020 In Colors are bright, fun and very on trend with the colours we’re currently seeing in fashion, home decor and advertising.
Although none of the In Colors are specifically featured in the Garden Impressions DSP, they coordinate beautifully with the fun & bright patterns. This was the starting point for my creations for blog hop B.
I matched each In Color with a pattern from the DSP and then added in coordinating ombre colours. I love cards with a monochrome/ombre palette!
I also added the Springtime Impressions Thinlits (that large gorgeous floral die cut & cute little flower) and a pretty stamp from the Stitched All Around stamp set. BOth of these items are currently available (along with the Garden Impressions DSP) on demonstrator pre-order #demoperks #happybirthdaytome
Here’s each In Color and the colours I matched. Can you spot some of the other new colours we’re welcoming in June?
CALL ME CLOVER
If you don’t love these In Colors on first impressions, let them wash over you for a while. You’ll come to love the fun they add to your craft collection!!!
2018-2020 In Colors are available from 1st June 2018. Get yours early by adding them to a Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit and join the SU! adventure. Click her for more information.
Many thank you to all my stamping friends who have joined me today to share in my celebrations through this hop!
Next up on hop B is the totally gorgeous Angela Meiritz-Reid over in New Zealand.
