Do something creative every day. Every day I spend time honing my creativity. If I’m not able to spend time creating cards with stamps and paper each day, I spend time exploring creativity with books, music or television shows. While I was away on my week-long vacation, I wasn’t able to craft, so I’m getting back into the swing of things now and am enjoying it more than ever. Today’s crafting-themed card shares a wonderful sentiment and some great, new papers. Here’s my card:
- Crafting Forever. Stampin’ Up! caters to all of the needs of paper crafters, but there are some really great products that cater to crafters who are crafting for crafters. 🙂 Even with all the great, new products that focus on crafting, I used this fun (and important) sentiment from Crafting Forever: I didn’t use it here, but here’s a look at the It Starts with Art Bundle, new in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog: There’s an entire suite of products that coordinate with this bundle. The Follow Your Art Bundle includes Designer Series Paper and some really great accessories. If you haven’t checked them all out, you’ll want to take a look:
- 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper. With the release of the new catalog, Stampin’ Up! re-designed the 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Papers that are available in the color families (and In Color collections). There’s a small, gingham (YAY!) pattern; a stitched, diamond pattern; a modern mosaic pattern and a pattern of beautiful, small script. Here’s a look at the patterns in the Bright’s 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper: I used the scripted pattern on my card today. The words on the page say “Inspire Create Share Ink Stamp Repeat” – how fun is that?! It’s beautiful from afar and inspiring when viewed up close. I used Grapefruit Grove from the 2018-2020 In Colors and Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo from the Brights.
- Sweet Color Combination. I love the combination of orange and pink – the combination reminds me of sherbet. I cut the three panels of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to line up with one another. Here’s a closer look:If you like this combination of Grapefruit Grove, Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo as much as I do, please save this for future reference:
Stamp Sets: Crafting Forever Papers: Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, 2018-2020 In Colors 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Smoky Slate, Vellum Cardstock, Thick Whisper White Inks: Melon Mambo Accessories: Stitched Shapes Dies, 2″ Circle Punch, Stitched Be Mine Dies, Layering Circles Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today!
