Welcome back to our Colour Creations Showcase as we continue our showcase of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alpha order. This week we are showcasing Old Olive, a fabulous green that is so versatile I actually use it like a neutral because it really pairs extremely well with any colour you combine it with.
For my cards today I’ve used elements from a brand new all inclusive card kit called Hello Dear Friend. Earlier this week I shared some other cards I made using the Hello Dear Friend Card Kit and today I have three more to share with you.
These three cards were inspired by one of the smaller card designs from the Hello Dear Friend Card Kit.
I loved how the stripes looked behind the yellow rose on this card, so I decided to pair the leftover die cuts with the black and white striped paper from the True Love Designer Series Paper.
You get everything you need in this kit to create 12 cards with matching envelopes…but you can make plenty more with this kit using the leftover die cuts and the stamp set, acrylic block and ink spot that are all included in the kit.
Because I used the leftover rose and leaf die cuts from this card kit with the black and white True Love Designer Series paper (both from the new January to June Mini Catalogue) my colour combination is Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Whisper White.
On my first card I intended to make a wreath with the die cut elements but halfway through adhering the die cuts around the sentiment I decided to create a spray of flowers instead.
By creating a spray instead of a wreath I had plenty room to add a bow of the black and white twine from the Playful Pets trim combo pack.
It also meant I now had some extra die cuts left over that I could use to create a thank you card .
This time I ran the DSP through my subtle embossing folder – it’s hard to see in this photo but it adds such a lovely texture in real life.
You might have noticed the stamped panel behind the “thank you” sentiment on the card above? It’s actually an off cut I didn’t want to waste after stamping the front panel for my third card below.
I stamped this panel using just two of the stamps in the stamp set included in this card kit. Here’s a close up of the stamps you get in this set as the photo of them in the catalogue is very small.
Running this stamped layer through the subtle embossing folder made all the difference to this card. All I had to do was add a bow of the Playful Pets bakers twine and die cut the “Just a Little note” sentiment using one of the Tasteful Label Dies before attaching to my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
