I couldn’t be happier about the next week’s release of Stampin’ Up!’s 2015-2016 Annual Catalog. Not only am I excited to place my order of new products, but I’m thrilled to see what everyone else is buying, too. I guess you could say I’m on Cloud 9 – and there’s your corny introduction to the fun and simple card I’m sharing with you today. 🙂 This card features three panels of Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper and a happy “hi” in a cloud from I Think You’re Great stamp set. Here’s my card:
- Three’s a Cloud. The featured panel of this card is made up of three panels of Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper – a new black-and-white patterned paper available in the upcoming catalog. I won this paper in a giveaway during the Hawaii Grand Vacation Incentive Trip – yippee! Each of these panels is 3″ x 1-1/2″. After I cut these pieces, I inked them up using my Brayer Tool. What a fun way to turn this black-and-white paper into colorful, vibrant patterns. In early February, I filmed a video about customizing Designer Series Papers – if you’d like to see it, please click here.
- Snippy Snippy. When I saw this cloud image in the I Think You’re Great stamp set, I thought, “Wow! It’d be great if that paired with a punch or framelit. Nope. Still, the image is super-adorable and well-worth the time it take so snip it by hand. I certainly wouldn’t make 100 of this design, but it sure does say “I care about you,” huh? I really like the idea of a simple “hi” card – it doesn’t always have to be a special occasion for a special card.
- Color Combination. Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder are fun, vibrant colors (thank you, Stampin’ Up!, for these awesome 2015-2017 In Colors). I needed a pale shade to offset these two, so I reached for Pool Party. Couldn’t have been happier. If you, too, like this color combination, feel free to save this:
