Sunday Stamps! #181

Hello, crafty friends.  Happy Father's Day to all those great guys we call Dad! :)

Today, we have a new bold and bright color challenge for you to play along with at Sunday Stamps!  Here's what I made using the Love What You Do stamp set.

Stampin' UP! had carried a designer series paper called "A Pop of Pink" a few years back which highlighted Melon Mambo and Black.  This weeks color challenge reminded me of this paper.

I have made so many different cards using the Love What You Do Suite with the coordinating Share What You Love Specialty DSP that it was fun to create using a different color scheme.  Don't get me wrong - the Share What You Love DSP is DA BOMB but working with a color change is nice too. :)



Here's this weeks challenge at Sunday Stamps!

To play along with us, choose a minimum of 3 colors from the photo above.  I chose Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist and Mint Macaron.  The deadline to submit your creation is Friday, June 29, 2018.

Here's how I colored my flowers:  1) Using Melon Mambo ink, I stamped off 2 times onto scratch paper before stamping the medium sized solid image over the flower. 2) I then colored the flower using the Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blend.  Where did I get this you ask??  It was a free item I chose from "cleaning off" the table from the Make and Takes at Onstage last April.  Note: The new Stampin' Blend colors listed in the catalog should be available very soon. 3) I then colored the bottom area of the petals using my Melon Mambo marker.

Lovely Floral

One of the new core colors added to the Subtles Family is Soft Sea Foam.  It's name says it all: a light green with a soft feel.  I paired it with Old Olive while using the Lovely Floral 3D Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.

Another great color in the Subtles Family is Highland Heather. It pairs well with another new color: Gorgeous Grape.  Together, these four colors make for a "beautiful day".

The Pair Pizzazz 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon which carried over to the new catalog complements both Soft Sea Foam and Old Olive. The Mint Macaron Faceted Dots work as well since it is in the same hue of Soft Sea Foam. Double yah!

You are Lovely

Today, I am sharing a card using the Stitched All Around Bundle along with a few other fun Stampin' UP! products to help me create a lovely floral arrangement.


Let's not forget about the beautiful flowers from the Cake Soiree Bundle from the past Occasions catalog.  Thank goodness it carried over! I still want to create with it.  As you can see the flowers from this set work fabulously with the Stitched All Around Bundle.


And isn't the stitching down the side of the card fun? I ran the framelit thru both the front and back of the card base using the Precision Base Plate.  A cool effect to see the stitching on the inside flap of the card.


I haven't used the color Pacific Point in quit some time so it was fun to create something with it along with other new colors found in the very pretty Garden Impressions DSP.

Mango Melody

A new core color in the Bright's Stampin' UP! family is Mango Melody.  It's definitely a bright and cheery summer color.  I decided to pair it up with the sunshine sentiment from the Stitched All Around Bundle.

Aren't these "stitched" framelits magnificent? I just had to try them all out- and ended up layering them all up together to create a beautiful background for the sentiment.  These framelits are da bomb! I mean awesome! :) 

After I made my layered focal point, I couldn't decide how best to display it...DSP? Cardstock?  It is so pretty that I decided to make a dramatic background for it. :) 


I sponged (starting at the top) So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and then Mango Melody onto a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and then flicked water onto it with a wet toothbrush.  I then heat set it with the Heat Tool.   A fabulous bundle! Thank you, Stampin' UP!

Accented Blooms

Did you purchase  the Tailored Tag punch from the Occasions catalog?  I did.  So when I saw that the Accented Blooms stamp set from the new 2018-2019 catalog coordinated with the Tailored Tag punch - it became a must have for me. :)

This is the other project attendees made at my Open House on last Friday.   I just love this stamp set.
