An In Color Thank You Using Items Already on my Desk

Do you have a pile of pre-cut items already on your craft desk? Me too!

For this project, I challenged myself to use them.

Using the In Colors of Soft Succulent and Polished Pink, with Very Vanilla, the project came together with items I had already cut or stamped.

The Stitched Greenery Die provides the background, again in Soft Succulent.

A flower from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set, with the outline stamped in Smoky Slate, provides the main image. This image is then coloured using second generation stamping in the project colours. It is then cut out with the coordinating Penned Flowers Dies.

The flower sits on a shape cut from the Decorative Circle Punch.

Using the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set the sentiment is stamped onto shapes cut from the Tailor Made Tags Dies. These are offset and poke out from behind the shape.

The flower and Decorative Circle piece are raised up on Dimensionals to create some extra depth.

Finally, some coordinating In Color Opal Rounds complete the project.

Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Decorative Circle Punch Flower

For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project, I again decided to use punches in a slightly different way.

 

My colour combination is Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party, two of the new In Colors, along with Very Vanilla.

First, a sentiment from the Lovely & Lasting Stamp Set is stamped onto the background.

Using a Blending Brush, the edges are then coloured with Sweet Sorbet.

A strip of coordinating cardstock and ribbon are then added across this background piece.

The project uses the Decorative Circle Punch and the Fish Builder Punch, along with a circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

Again, using a Blending Brush, both sides of the Decorative Circle pieces are given some colour.

Next, they are scrunched to soften the fibres. This then allows the cardstock to be split in half to create two softer thinners layers.

These layers are then arranged, inked side up, and glued together to create the delicate Decorative Circle Punch flower. The circle piece, coated in Wink of Stella turns into the centre.

Fish Builder Punch shapes are given veins with a Bone Folder to create leaves.

Finally, some Iridescent Pearls are dotted across the project.

Introduction to In Color Class – Starry Sky

The third project from my annual Introduction to In Color Class is this scrunched Birthday Card for Starry Sky.

The new In Color of Starry Sky combines with Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla for a grungey feel.

It is a similar design layout to the project on page 53 of the Annual Catalogue using the new Decorative Circle Punch.

The background piece is given a good scrunching before being stuck to the layer at an angle.

Next, the shapes are given different levels of scrunching and two of them are stuck down.

The centre shape has a piece of the the coordinating Metallic Woven Ribbon wrapped around it.

Two lengths of the ribbon are then stuck to the back, the ends tied and then frayed up to the knot.

A sentiment from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set is then cut out by hand and also stuck to one edge of the Crumb Cake shape.

Using Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals, the whole shape, with the overhanging edge of the sentiment are stuck to the card to raise it up.

Finally, some coordinating Matte Decorative Dots are added.

This design has so many different ways in which it can be created, from grunge, Sponge Daubers, stamping, DSP, clean lines and more.

Why not make your own version? I’d love to see it.
