Welcome back to our Colour Creations Showcase in 2021 as we continue our showcase of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alpha order.
Night of Navy is one of my all time favourite colours and because it is a neutral it works so well with so many different colours. This week my colour combination was inspired by the stunning Paper Blooms DSP, one of the free SALE-a-bration items you can earn with any purchase over $90.
I made three cards today using the designer series papers in this pack that consist of mainly Night of Navy, Seaside Spray, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White…and just a touch of Old Olive. Isn’t this such a soothing and relaxing colour combination?
As well as the Paper Blooms DSP I’ve used another new SALE-a-bration product you can earn with any purchase of $90 or more – the “Heal Your Heart” stamp set.
What I like about this stamp set is the mix of fonts – I think it looks really visually appealing on a card.
Because there is a mix of large and small floral designs and more neutral graphic patterns I created three cards to show the different ways you can use this designer series paper to create both masculine and feminine cards.
The first card was super easy to make using 2cm strips of DSP evenly spaced on an angle on a base piece of Whisper White card stock. Adding strips on an angle immediately creates visual interest.
Once I’d added all the strips I used my paper trimmer to trim the rectangle to measure 14.5 x 9.5cm and adhered it onto a 15 x 10 cm card base.
I wanted to keep this card quite neutral and masculine so I didn’t add any ribbon or flowers. The “We’re in this Together” sentiment is punched out with the story label punch and layered on top of a Night of Navy stitched oval.
My “Sorry for Your Loss” card was inspired by a series of cards created by a German Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who fussy cut the flowers out of the Paper Blooms DSP and used them with the Wreath Builder Dies.
I’ve come up with a much simpler version today that doesn’t require as many layers or as much fussy cutting.
This close up shows you the detail of the Night of Navy flowers I fussy cut for my wreath – these were actually super quick and easy to cut out using my paper snips.
Probably my favourite stamp from the “Heal Your Heart” stamp set is the “Thank You” stamp with its large, elegant floral script. I decided make a super quick and easy thank you card with this sentiment, also adding a few left-over die cuts from my wreath card for extra dimension and interest.
The “Thank You” sentiment was die cut using the “Stitched So Sweetly” dies – I love how this sentiment and the pretty floral design of the DSP do all the work for you on this card.
