Favorite Color, Stampin' Up!

 

I love a good challenge and today’s Be Inspired blog hop definitely was a CHALLANGE for me.  Our Be Inspired Team put together today’s theme, our favorite color.  At first I was completely stumped.  I love so many colors it was hard to settle on just one.

I gave this a lot of thought and decided to thumb through my blog and see what color stood out most over the last few weeks.  Lemon Lime Twist was hands down a winner.

Every time I looked at a card made with the Lemon Lime Twist my heart skipped a beat.  So today, that is the color I will choose.

 

Hello Lemon-Lime Twist

Favorite Color, Pieces & Patterns, Stampin' Up!

 

I decided to go full on Lemon Lime Twist using the cardstock, designer series paper and ink.  Oh my! It was a little slice of heaven having all of these products together.

The products I used is a new release available June 1st from the Pick a Pattern Suite.  This suite includes the stamp set Pieces & Patterns, Designer Series Paper, Washi Tape, and Electic Shaped Paper Clips.

  • I used a new embossing folder called Oh My Stars.  I love how playful this embossing folder is and it will coordinate with so many great stamp sets.
  • The large piece of pattern paper is from the Eastern Palace Suite called Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  When you purchase this bundle now, you will receive this gorgeous designer series paper.  Click HERE to see the bundles available until May 31st and get a free gift with purchase.
  • I added another layer of designer series paper (black & white pattern) from the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper.  I love how this paper added a stark contrast to the card.

  • When I stamped the greeting I was so excited when the Stitched Shapes Framelits fit perfectly around the greeting.  I added another scallop die cut underneath the stitched circle using the Layering Circles Dies.
  • To create a little pop of color, I added a small strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock punched using the Ticker Tear Border. I love the little bitty scallop it creates.
  • Lastly, I added a few of my favorite embellishments like the Delicate White Doily and a small piece of Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon.

Label Me Pretty

OnStage Display Stamping, Stampin' Up!

Label Me Pretty

It’s day 5 of the Display Stamper blog hop and today I sharing a new stamp set called Label Me Pretty.  The Label Me Pretty stamp set has a coordinating punch called Pretty Label.  While this set has a coordinating punch,  I wanted to show you that other punches or dies work just as well with this stamp set.

I paired the Label Me Pretty stamp set with an annual catalog favorite of mine, Falling Flowers.  I loved all of the florals together and especially the framelits behind the greeting.

Tips & Tricks 

Here are a few tips when creating this card.

  • To start this card I used Whisper White Thick Cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, then I added a 1″ strip of the beautiful gold chevron pattern from the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.
  • I stamped the floral images onto Whisper White cardstock and then die cut using the May Flowers Framelits.  I love this die set! When stamping the florals, I used Old Olive, Daffodil delight and Berry Burst Classic Ink. Most noteworthy, I stamped the small flower in Daffodil Delight which comes from the Orange Blossom stamp set.  I added a small 1/4″x 5-1/2″ strip of Berry Burst cardstock was added to the very edge of the Whisper White card layer 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″.
  • Instead of using the coordinating punch, I stamped the greeting onto Dapper Denim cardstock using Basic Black Archival ink and then used the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I stamped the greeting again, and fussy cut the banner and added it to the die cut using Mini Glue Dots.  I love how Mini Glue Dots add just enough dimension.
  • Lastly, I added Rhinestones around the focal image for a little bling.

Bold Bright Color Combination

OnStage Display Stamping, Stampin' Up!

 

Bold Bright Color Combination

It’s Day 4 of the Display Stamper blog hop, and today I have a beautifully bold, bright color combination.  More and more these days I gravitate towards the more brilliant colors.  If you took a journey back over the years on my blog, you would see that I was a steady Eddie for neutral color schemes.

I guess as I’ve aged, the brights are keeping me young.  They are so fresh looking.  Of course when you add in the new Lemon Lime Twist, it becomes even fresher!!!

Orange Blossom with a Twist

I made a small comment the other day about a funny with the Orange Blossom set. Here’s the thing,  I had no idea the name of this stamp set when I received it.   I had no idea the circle image you see above stamped in Bermuda Bay ink was an orange.  This is one of the reasons I love stamps.  It’s awesome to use an image in a different way, and I love how it turned out for this card.

 

New products used on this card: 

Here are a few of the new products I used for this card.

Glimpse of the OnStage Displays

Glimpse of the OnStage Displays

OnStage Display Stamping, Stampin' Up!

 

One of the best things about going to OnStage are the beautiful displays that you can see using the new product.  There is one problem, however.  OnStage locals are happening all over the world.  There are display stampers ALL over the world which means we can’t see all of the beautiful displays.    Over the next week or so, I’m going to be sharing my OnStage displays along with the Artisans who were display stampers.

 

Orange Blossom

OnStage Display Stamping, Stampin' Up!

 

I wanted to use the beautiful Orange Blossom stamp set with the new Lemon Lime Twist In Color.  In typical Kimberly fashion, my first glimpse of the new colors I’m not overjoyed.  Then I stamp with the colors, and I fall in love.  The Lemon Lime Twist has me smitten.  Already I can think of many color combinations.

You will notice a few new products used for this card.

  • Eastern Palace Designer Specialty Paper
  • Lemon Lime Twist Classic Ink
  • 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon
  • Iridescent Sequin Assortment

 

Beautiful Color Combinations

Below is the color combination I used for today’s card.  I love how the blues and yellows provide a fresh look and especially fun for spring and summer.

Tips & Tricks

A few tips when creating this card.

  • The greeting was stamped onto a piece of Dapper Denim Cardstock and then die cut using the Window Box Thinlits Dies.  There is a special little thinlit within the dies that cuts a beautiful banner.
  • Using my sewing machine, I created a straight stitch across the banner and ribbon to keep in place. I also added a small piece of a Delicate White Doily under the ribbon.

OnStage Display Stamping, Stampin' Up!

 

  • The flowers were stamped onto Whisper White cardstock 4″ x 5-1/2″ using Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party inks.  This gave me a small space to add a 1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of designer series paper along the edge of the card for a little pop of color.
  • The new sequins are perfection.  Why do I love them so much? Look at the different sizes of the sequins.  Look at the tiny little sequin.  This makes my heart pitter patter.  They have a nice iridescent look you will love.
