Welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop! This month's theme is all about highlighting our amazing In Colors. I chose to stick with the five new ones (Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide) and highlight ALL of them on both projects! Oh yes, the creative juices were flowing this week and I was up for the challenge!
I thought it would be fun to create a colorful band highlighting the five colors so I took 1/2" strips of each color and adhered them along one edge of a piece of Berry Burst. What a fun twist to a usually solid color layer on a card. That was my jumping off point. From there I stamped the pens from the Crafting Forever stamp set to mimic another row of colors. This time with using our Stampin' Write markers in those five fabulous colors and giving each pen their own personality.
The inside also warranted the use of another pen along with the words. By adding just a little "something", it helps to jazz up the inside of cards. Don't you think?
I saved my favorite for last. I used multiple new stamp sets on this card. First up, I stamped the five In Colors with the heart from the Wood Words stamp set on a piece of Whisper White card stock to create a fun background. Using a Stitched Circle Framelit, I stamped this wonderful saying from the Just Add Text in Tranquil Tide ink and popped it up on dimensionals. I then stamped this darling little bear, bees and grass from the In The Wild set. The bear got a little color using our reinkers and and Aquapainter, the bees with our Stampin' Write Markers and the grass with our Lemon Lime Twist ink pad. I hand cut all of them out and popped them all up on dimensionals. I finished the card off with a Berry Burst ribbon and Wink of Stella on the wings of the bees for some sparkle. Can I just say, "I am in LOVE with this card!" It just brings a smile to my face! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy hopping along to see what other fabulous creations the rest of the design team made using our fabulous In Colors! Happy Stamping!
