Today’s card is a slight spin on the color combination for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge which calls for Island Indigo, Pool Party and Whisper White. I decided to stick with the blues and aquas to make a “thinking of you” card with Dapper Denim and Mint Macaron. This card features a new Thinlits die and a sentiment from a carried-forward Christmas set. Can you name it?
Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Flourish Thinlits. The set of Thinlits that pairs with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Annual Catalog is stunning! Each and every die is designed to perfection. Whether you plan to cover the front of a card with this gorgeous flourish or accent a card/envelope with some of the other shapes, you’ll want to add this set of dies to your wish list. There will come a time when you will say, “I wish I had those right now.” Promise. While you are in there, you might as well make it a bundle to get the coordinating stamp set. You’re welcome! I’m glad I can help.
- Thinking of You. In my opening paragraph, I mentioned that this sentiment comes from a Christmas stamp set – want to guess which one I used to create this beautiful sentiment? I’ll give you a hint – it’s Embellished Ornaments, the stamp set filled with beautiful ornaments that pairs with the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. Oh, dang! I didn’t even give you time to guess. Inspired by the reveal of this stamp set at last year’s Convention, I simply masked “at Christmas” with tape to generate the beautiful – and beautifully balanced – thinking of you.
- Sweet Color Combination. While Mint Macaron bounces back and forth between blue and green, Dapper Denim (one of Stampin’ Up!’s 2016-2018 In Colors) is purely blue. The combination of the two is super-sweet. The Mint Macaron flourish is beautifully showcased against the blue background. If you like these colors, too, feel free to save this for future inspiration:
