Here’s the second card sample using one of the new In Colors from Stampin’ Up!–Dapper Denim. What a rich and lovely blue this is! In this card it’s combined with Bermuda Bay, which sets off the Dapper Denim beautifully! And don’t you love the Ruched Ribbon? It’s available in all five of the new colors when the 2016 Annual Catalog goes live on June 1st.
The background is made with the Timeless Textures stamp set which is also featured in the Emerald Envy card I posted earlier. They are very different backgrounds, though! Check out the first sample in this post: Emerald Envy. (You can also see how to get a new catalog in that post.)
The butterfly was made with the Butterflies Thinlits and Bold Butterfly Framelits. If you love to add butterflies to your handmade cards and paper craft projects, these are must-have dies for your Big Shot! You can see a retiring Candy Dot on the butterfly. If you’re disappointed to see the Candy Dots retiring, rest assured, there’s a new style of embellishments that will easily take their place!
You may remember the sets of cards I made showing off the new In Colors in the past 2 years, and the videos comparing and contrasting them to other colors in the Stampin’ Up! palette. Each year I would make one design with all five colors. You can see cards in the retiring colors in this post, 2014 In Colors, and last year’s cards here – 2015 In Colors, and here – More 2015 In Colors.
This year I’m mixing it up a bit, making different designs for each card. The thing they all have in common so far, is the use of abstract stamps to create the backgrounds. In addition, I decided not to wait until I have the video finished to show you these great new colors!
I really need some feedback from you. I want to know if you prefer seeing all the colors in a single design, or if you still get a good sense of the colors with different designs. I want to do whatever is going to work best for my followers! So be sure to leave me a comment!
Dapper Denim is one of five new In Colors from Stampin’ Up!, and I can’t wait to get off the computer and go make another sample to share with you!
