Welcome to the very first week of our new Colour Creations blog hop format for 2020-21!
From today we are reverting to a traditional blog hop format, starting with a showcase of ALL FIVE 2021-23 InColours, followed by the rest of our beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in individual alpha order at 8pm every Wednesday.
If you haven’t already seen them, here are the five new 2021-23 In Colours.
And here are the cards I’ve made to showcase these beautiful 2021-23 InColours using the Colour & Contour bundle. I love how the graphic quality of these floral images really make these colours pop.
When I first saw the Color & Contour bundle I was immediately drawn to the scalloped layering dies but not so sure about the stamp set. After just one use I am totally sold on this stamp set! Although I’ve used the new InColour Stampin’ Blends to colour in the flowers and leaves the stamp set comes with stamps you can use to stamp the colour into the flowers and leaves if you prefer.
Polished Pink is the brightest of the new 2021-23 InColours – it’s a slightly “redder” pink than Magenta Madness. I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this card beside some camellias I’ve just picked from the trees in my back garden – how good do these pinks and reds look together?
This close-up shows how stunning the largest scalloped contour die is and gives you a better look at the new 2021-23 InColour Jewels and 2021-23 InColour Polished Pink open weave ribbon. The leaves are coloured using another new 2021-23 InColour – Soft Succulent.
I’m so glad I didn’t have to fussy cut this flower – there’s a die for both of the flowers in this bundle. The buds and the smaller leaves are stamped directly onto the Basic White top layer and then the die cut flower is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Fresh Freesia is my favourite 2021-23 InColour and this second card uses the other flower stamp, coloured using the Fresh Freesia InColour Stampin’ Blends and die cut with the matching die. The leaves are stamped onto the card front and coloured with the Soft Succulent InColour Stampin’ Blends.
The sentiment stamp on the front of this card is card has a matching stamp that I’ve used on the inside of the card.
For my final card I’ve paired the lightest 2021-23 InColour (Pale Papaya) with the darkest (Evening Evergreen) but I think they really complement each other.
I’ve fussy cut 4 buds as well as the larger flower image (after I die cut it) to create a different floral shape for this card. Did you notice the splattering on the card – it’s another stamp in this really versatile stamp set.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Kate Morgan.
