Color Fusers Blog Hop for June 2020

Happy June, Everyone! What a great way to start off the month, with a Color Fusers blog hop, a gorgeous color combo, and products from the NEW Annual Catalog, which goes live in only TWO days! Our color combo today is a very pretty combination of Petal Pink, Melon Mambo, and Pool Party!

My project today features (mostly) products from the new catalog. The background images were created with stamps from the new Forever Fern set. The sentiment is from the new Lovely You stamp set, and is heat embossed in white on Basic Black card stock. I also used new ribbon and embellishments, which I will get to in just a bit! For now, here’s a sneak peek at the two stamp sets I used:

Forever Fern Stamp Set
Lovely You Stamp Set

When making this card, I really wanted to use Melon Mambo ribbon, but I do not currently have any in my stash. So I used some of the new White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and dyed it with my Melon Mambo ink refill. It was really easy to do! I used a small clear plastic cup, added about 1/2 inch of water, 10 drops of ink, and a splash of isopropyl alcohol. After stirring it well, I submerged the ribbon and let it sit for 10 minutes or so, then removed it and laid it flat on a paper towel. I used the paper towel to blot as much of the water out as possible, then dried it the rest of the way with my hair dryer. The ribbon held the color really well. Next time, I think I will leave it in longer to see if I can get a deeper color, but even the lighter pink coordinates well, as it’s just a lighter shade of Melon Mambo!

In addition to the leaves, I also stamped some small splatters all over the background in Petal Pink ink. The splatter stamp is also from the Forever Fern set. And the droplet embellishments are from the NEW Flowers for Every Season Gems. They are not adhesive backed, so I just used a very small dab of glue and placed them with my Take Your Pick Tool.

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Thick Whisper White card stock card base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Pool Party card stock middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches

Whisper White card stock top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches

Basic Black card stock sentiment piece: 1-1/8 x 2-1/4 inches

Although this card is made with mostly new products, there is still time to get your favorite retiring products! But you only have until tomorrow night to get them! Click HERE to shop the Last Chance Products section of my online store, and stock up on your favorites before they are gone for good!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for April 2020

Welcome to our Color Fusers blog hop for April! Well, things have certainly changed since last month, haven’t they? Who would have thought a month ago that all of this craziness in the world would be happening? Usually, on a Color Fusers hop day, I would be carrying my phone from classroom to classroom with my alarm set to make sure that my post gets published at the right time. Today, I will most likely be sitting at my dining room table (pleading) with my boys to PLEASE get some schoolwork done. Such a huge and bizarre difference from a month ago!

We could all use some positive thoughts right now, so my project today features the stamp set Positive Thoughts, including a sentiment that I think we can really all use more of during this time : Hugs, Prayers, Love.

I love this month’s color combo! Blues and greens together are so calming, and I love these particular shades together. My card uses a Balmy Blue base, with Soft Sea Foam, Blueberry Bushel, and Whisper White layers. The sentiment is stamped in Granny Apple Green, and there are also some Glitter Enamel Dots in that color as well. The card is finished with a simple Blueberry Bushel bow.

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Balmy Blue cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Soft Sea Foam cardstock layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches

Balmy Blue cardstock embossed layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

Blueberry Bushel cardstock scalloped layer: 3-1/8 x 4-7/8 inches

Whisper White cardstock top layer: 2-1/2 x 3-5/8 inches

Whisper White sentiment piece: 1-9/16 x 2 inches

Every stamped image on this card, including the sentiment, is from the Positive Thoughts set. This set has so many things I love: butterflies, leaves, flowers, simple script sentiments, and more! Take a peek at the full set below:

You can find a complete supply list for my project today at the end of this post. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. In the meantime, I hope you will continue through the rest of our hop! The next stop is Tami Hewlett’s page.

Color Fusers Blog Hop for March 2020

Welcome to our Color Fusers March 2020 blog hop! Today, we have a really pretty color combo to share! I just love the combination of green and brown together. I love it so much, that it was actually my color scheme for my wedding in 2008. I wore a light ivory gown, and my bridesmaids wore dark brown. All of my accents were different shades of green, including my main flowers, which were green Cymbidium Orchids. I made all of my own wedding stationery, and though I was not a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator at the time, I used Stampin’ Up! products in everything I made. My Stampin’ Up! colors were Certainly Celery (now retired), Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla. (Not EXACTLY the colors used today’s project, but on the same idea)!

For today’s project, I used the Parisian Beauty and Forever Blossoms stamp sets, as well as the Parisian Dies:

To make this card, I used Soft Suede card stock for the base, then Pear Pizzazz for the middle layer, and Very Vanilla for the top. I wanted a very soft look for this card, so any stamped images were stamped off at least twice in order to leave it very light in color.

I stamped the blossoms on the background in Mint Macaron ink. I stamped each off twice before stamping onto my final layer. I then used the script stamp from Parisian Beauty to stamp some script in multiple spots using Soft Suede. Those were stamped off three times each before stamping the final images. I then used a sponge dauber to sponge some Pear Pizzazz ink very lightly in the center of each large flower, as well as some Crumb Cake lightly along the edges.

The Eiffel Tower was cut from Crumb Cake card stock using the large die from the Parisian Dies set, and the “merci” was cut in Pear Pizzazz using a die from the same set. (I had originally planned to use Soft Suede for the tower, but I felt it was too dark, so I went with the lighter color!) Once the two top layers were adhered together with Snail adhesive, I attached them to the base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish this card, I added three small pearls to the front, as well as a simple sentiment from the By the Dock stamp set to the inside:

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Soft Suede card stock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half).

Pear Pizzazz card stock middle layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

Very Vanilla card stock top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches

Crumb Cake Eiffel Tower piece: 2-3/4 x 5 inches

Pear Pizzazz “merci” piece: 1/2 x 2-1/2 inches

Right now, you can get both the Parisian Beauty stamp set and Parisian Dies as a bundle for 10% off the price of both purchased separately! Take a peek at the full bundle below:

The full Forever Blossoms stamp set can also be seen below:

I love how all of these products work so well together!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for February 2020

It’s time for another Color Fusers Blog Hop! This month, we have a gorgeous combination of Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, and Early Espresso!

For some reason, when I think of pink with shades of brown and ivory, I think of vintage, lacy things. So when I was designing my card for this month, I went with that theme. I used Early Espresso card stock for the base, then layered it with Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, and Very Vanilla on top. The card is embellished with a lacy bow and a shimmery pink flower.

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Early Espresso card stock card base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Sahara Sand card stock layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches

Blushing Bride card stock layer: 3-5/8 x 4-7/8 inches

Very Vanilla card stock top layer: 3-1/2 x 4-3/4 inches

Blushing Bride die cut heart: 2-1/4 x 2-3/8 inches

Blushing Bride blossom: 1 inch (approximate)

Sahara Sand card stock sentiment piece: 1/2 x 2 inches (approximate)

While the overall layout of this card is very simple, I added a number of details to dress it up a bit:

  1. The corners on the base are stamped with leaves in Versamark ink.
  2. The top layer is embossed using the Scripty 3D embossing folder.
  3. The flower was crinkled and then coated in Wink of Stella to give it some extra texture, shimmer, and shine.
  4. A Frosted Flower Embellishment with a tiny pearl was added to the center of the flower.
  5. Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim was added, along with a bow to finish it off!

While Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I plan to use this card for an upcoming wedding. This card could definitely be used for Valentine’s Day, though, as well as an anniversary, engagement, or bridal shower!

I hope you have enjoyed my project today! Please continue to the next stop on this month’s hop, which is Melanie Hockin’s page. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month!

Have a great day!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for January 2020

It’s the first Monday of the month, and that means it’s time for our Color Fusers Blog Hop! This month, we’ve got a great combo of Blueberry Bushel, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Gray, and Basic Black to share with you!

I have always loved music! When I was younger, I played the flute and piccolo in the school band, and I was voted Most Musical my senior year of high school. It’s been a long time since I’ve played, but I’ve always loved anything with music notes, or a sheet music theme. So when I saw the new Music From the Heart stamp set, it was one of the first things I put on my new catalog wish list! It includes 19 stamps, and it’s a photopolymer set, so it makes it very easy to line up those little notes on the staff. Here’s a peek at the full set:

I just LOVE the hand drawn look of this set!

I decided to make this card on the simple side, and instead dressed it up a bit with some epoxy hearts and extra shimmer. I used Shimmery White card stock for the top layer, then used Basic Gray for the middle, and Basic Black as my base. I did a light watercolor wash using Rich Razzleberry ink, let it dry, then stamped the staff in Basic Gray. I then stamped the clef and notes in StazOn Black ink. (Quick tip for the notes: instead of stamping each note individually, I placed the three note stamps face down where I wanted them, then pressed ONE block onto all three of them before inking them up. This allowed me to stamp all three at once, and get perfect placement as well!) I then stamped the birds and sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink, added two epoxy hearts (the small one was colored with my dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends marker), then I added a little Wink of Stella to both hearts and birds for some extra shimmer. The card was finished with a simple crinkle ribbon wrapped around the base. It’s also hard to tell from the pictures, but the top and middle layers are raised off the base a bit with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals, to give it just a little height and make the whole thing pop a bit!

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Basic Black card stock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Basic Gray card stock middle layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches

Shimmery White card stock top layer: 3-1/2 x 4-3/4 inches

This set is now available, along with many other fantastic new products, in the new January-June Mini Catalog! Combined with the new Sale-a-Bration brochure, there are many, many fantastic new products available! (Take a peek at both using the links to the right.) Shop during Sale-a-Bration, and earn a FREE item for every $50 purchase (before tax and shipping) now through March 31st!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for November 2019

It’s time for our November Color Fusers Blog Hop! We’ve got a festive color combo today of Copper, Pretty Peacock, and Cherry Cobbler. Please be sure to click though all of our blogs to see all of the projects that my talented teammates have created!

My project today features the Christmas Layers Dies, along with a sentiment from the Merry Moose stamp set. To make this card, I first cut a 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch piece of Shimmery White cardstock, and then carefully tore along each edge in order to make a square approximately 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches in size. I then took a small spray bottle and added 1/2 water and 1/2 rubbing alcohol, as well as about 10 drops of ink from a Pretty Peacock ink refill. After shaking well, I spritzed the color to cover the square. I then used an AquaPainter and Pretty Peacock ink pad to spatter some darker ink spots on the cardstock. I then set it aside to dry.

While the square was drying, I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and embossed it using the Scripty Embossing Folder. I also cut the snowflakes from Copper Foil using the Christmas Layers Dies, and stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink using a stamp from the Merry Moose stamp set. The ends of the sentiment piece were trimmed by hand using Paper Snips.

Before assembling the card, I used a stamp from the Nature’s Beauty set to stamp some detail in Pretty Peacock ink. I then assembled the rest of the card using Snail adhesive, Mini Dimensionals, and the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I finished the card by adding some tiny snowflakes using Multipurpose Glue.

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Shimmery White cardstock base: 4-1/4 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Cherry Cobbler cardstock strip: 4-1/4 x 2 inches

Shimmery White cardstock top layer: 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches (torn by hand to measure approximately 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches in size)

Shimmery White sentiment piece: 2-1/2 x 1/2 inch

Copper Foil piece for die cut snowflakes: 3 x 4 inches

I hope you have enjoyed my project today! Whether you have come here from my Facebook page, Jo Anne Hewins page, or some other way, I hope you will continue to click through the rest of our pages to see some other projects created with this color combo. Up next is Bonnie O’Neill!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for October 2019

It’s time for our Color Fusers Blog Hop for October! This month we have a pretty autumn-esque color combo to share. All of our projects feature Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, Cajun Craze, and Basic Black.

For my project this month, I decided to create a woodland themed Welcome Little One card. It features the Nature’s Beauty and Animal Outing stamp sets. The background is sponged with Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile ink, and the fox is colored with Cajun Craze and Ivory Stampin’ Blends markers. I also used the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to lighten the color on the front of the fox a little. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black.

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Basic Black cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Crumb Cake Middle Layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/4 inches

Very Vanilla top layer: 3-3/4 x 5-1/8 inches

To add extra detail, I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies on the top layer, as well as added some Linen Thread and Gold Metallic Pearls to finish it off!

The Nature’s Beauty stamp set is available in this year’s Annual Catalog, and will be available through the end of May 2020. Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 for every Nature’s Beauty stamp set sold to Mental Health Awareness organizations. Not only is this stamp set gorgeous, it also helps support a great cause!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for September 2019

Welcome to our Color Fusers hop for September! Our creations this month feature a gorgeous combination of Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, Night of Navy, and Mossy Meadow!

My project today features the Very Versailles, Butterfly Gala, and Tasteful Textures stamp sets. I used a Crumb Cake base, as well as Very Vanilla for the background and envelope. Most of the images for this card were stamped off prior to stamping the final images, as I wanted to soften all of the colors a bit for this project.

To create this card, I took the Very Vanilla top layer and very lightly sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges, as well as very lightly across the surface to give it an aged, almost light tea stained look. (It’s easier to see it in person, as it’s very subtle, but it’s definitely there!) I then took the script stamp from the Very Versailles set and inked it with Crumb Cake ink. I stamped it off three times before stamping the lower left and upper right corners. I then re-inked it, and stamped it off 5 times before stamping the other two corners. I did not stamp them all off the same amount, as I wanted there to be a difference in the shading of the ink on the background. I then stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow and the sentiment in Night of Navy. Both were stamped off once before stamping the final images.

The butterflies were stamped in Merry Merlot ink on Rococo Rose card stock, and punched with the Butterfly Duet punch. This punch coordinates perfectly with the Butterfly Gala stamp set! I layered my finished top layer with my base and Night of Navy middle layer. The top and middle layer are adhered with Snail adhesive, and then they were adhered to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. After the card was fully assembled, I applied pearls to the butterflies that were colored with an Ivory Stampin’ Blends Marker, so that they didn’t look so white against the Very Vanilla background. Once that was done, I added an inside layer with coordinating sentiment, and my card was complete!

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Crumb Cake card stock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Night of Navy card stock middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches

Very Vanilla card stock top layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

Rococo Rose card stock piece for butterflies: 3 x 3 inches (both will fit on one piece)

I hope you have enjoyed my project today! Please continue through the rest of our hop to see what the rest of our team has created this month! Next up is Bonnie O’Neill, who always has something gorgeous to share!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for August 2019

Today’s color combo is one of my absolute favorites so far! Greens, blues, and purples are my favorite colors, so I just LOVE this color combo! These colors remind me of tropical seas, so I decided to feature the Seaside Notions stamp set in my card today.

For this card, I used Shimmery White cardstock for the base, the seahorse, and sentiment piece. I stamped the seaweed image in the corners in Pretty Peacock ink, then stamped the seahorse in StazOn black ink on a separate piece, and watercolored it with both Pretty Peacock and Blackberry Bliss ink. Once it dried completely, I carefully trimmed around the image using Paper Snips. I then stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink, heat embossed it in Shimmer Black Embossing Powder, and punched it with the Story Label Punch. Hopefully, you can see the shimmer in the embossing powder in the picture below:

I used the Sprig Punch to punch the sprigs on both sides of the sentiment, and cut them from Blackberry Bliss, Pretty Peacock, and Vellum Cardstock. They are adhered with Mini Glue Dots, and the seahorse and sentiment piece are adhered over the sprigs with Stampin’ Dimensionals (both regular and minis).

Once the card was fully assembled, I used a stamp from the Artisan Textures stamp set to give the appearance of bubbles just above the seahorse. I added a few Pretty Peacock sequins from the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment to dress it up a bit. I got a little too much glue behind some of the sequins, so I sprinkled a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter over the “bubbles”, just to cover up the glue, as well as add a bit more shimmer! (Cause really, what’s a little more shimmer at this point? 🙂 )

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Shimmery White cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Coastal Cabana cardstock middle layer: 3-5/8 x 5 inches

Bermuda Bay cardstock top layer: 3-3/8 x 4-3/4 inches

Shimmery White seahorse piece: 1-1/4 x 3 inches

Shimmery White sentiment piece: 1-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches

Sprigs: 1-1/4 x 2 inches each (approximate size)

And now it’s time for a confession: this card was case’d from a card I made for a swap last month. I didn’t have as much time as I had hoped to work on my project this month, so I needed something quickly! I loved my original and thought this month’s colors would work well for the design, so I just changed up a few things and now I have two versions to share! I love them both! Here’s my original card for comparison:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please continue on to Bonnie’s page! I have seen her cards for this month, and they are GORGEOUS!

Have a great day!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for July 2019

Welcome to the Color Fusers blog hop for July! This month’s palette is a trio of soft, light colors: Soft Sea Foam, Seaside Spray, and Purple Posy!

I LOVE pastel colors! They’ve always been my favorite, ever since I started stamping almost 16 years ago. Although the colors we used for this month’s projects are all soft shades, they are actually from two different Stampin’ Up! color families: Soft Sea Foam is part of the Subtles family, while Seaside Spray and Purple Posy are two of the NEW In Colors for 2019-2021!

In addition to our three featured colors, this card also features the new Band Together stamp set. This set can be found on page 121 of the Annual Catalog, as well as in the Online Store. It includes 8 red rubber cling stamps, and can be paired with the coordinating Detailed Bands Dies. The stamps and dies are available as a bundle as well. Purchasing the bundle will save 10% off the cost of both items separately!

Here’s a peek at the full set:

Band Together Cling Set
Set of 8 stamps
Item #149231
$23.00

I love the large floral image in this set. It can be used to make a card for pretty much any occasion! I also love that this set contains sentiments for both the front and inside of the card.

To make this card, I used Seaside Spray cardstock as the base, then layered Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White cardstock on top. The front image was stamped in Memento Black ink, and colored with both Soft Sea Foam and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I decided to soften the image by layering vellum over the whole top layer. The greeting was stamped in Seaside Spray ink right on the vellum itself, so that it stands out a bit from the other images. (One thing to keep in mind about vellum: if you stamp on it the ink takes a LOT longer to dry!)

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Seaside Spray cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Soft Sea Foam cardstock middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches

Whisper White top layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

Vellum Overlay: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

All layers were adhered with Snail adhesive, except for the vellum. For the vellum layer, I used a Mini Glue Dot in each corner, and pressed just hard enough for it to stay secured to the card. If you use light pressure, it’s very hard to see the glue dot through the vellum. The more you press, the more noticeable the glue dot will be!

To finish the card, I embellished with Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins and Seaside Spray 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon. I stamped the inside of the card, stamped the envelope to match, and my project was complete!

Please continue on to the next stop on our hop this month, Bonnie O’Neill’s page, to see what fun project she has created this month!

Thanks so much for visiting today! Enjoy your day!
