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 Pacific Point, a lovely vibrant blue from our brights family.
Week 32 – Pacific Point
Hands up if you have ever bought an entire pack of Designer Series Paper because you just had to have one of the designs?
As soon as I saw the Berry Blessings Stamp Set & Berry Delightful DSP bundle in the SALE-a-bration catalogue my eye was immediately drawn to this beautiful sheet of DSP, blueberry patterned on one side with a fresh blue check on the other side.
And even better still, because the Berry Blessings Stamp Set & Berry Delightful DSP is one of the SALE-a-bration items I earned this bundle for FREE by placing an order of over $180 – not hard to do with all the lovely new products in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue!
The colour scheme for my card today is a lovely fresh mix of the different blues and greens in this DSP. Doesn’t Pacific Point look amazing alongside Night of Navy and Balmy Blue?
I’m not sure what to call this type of card – maybe a “fancy fold belly band” card?
Whatever you call it, I promise you that fancy folds don’t get any easier than this card. Simply take a 25 x 10cm rectangle of Night of Navy card stock and score along the longest side at 10cm. Fold this flap over – this is the front of your card. I decorated my front flap with a 9 x 9cm square of the berry DSP, layered on top of a 9.5 x 9.5cm layer of Whisper White card stock.
The inside of the card is decorated with another 9.5 x 9.5cm layer of Whisper White card stock, stamped with a berry and leaf stamp from the Berry Blessings stamp set and a “birthday” sentiment.
I used the recently retired envelope dies to die cut a piece of the berry DSP to decorate the back of my envelope but if you don’t have these envelope dies you can simply trace around the back of your envelope flap and cut the DSP out with your paper snips.
The other panel on the right hand side of the card uses the reverse side of the berry DSP, cut to 4 x 9 cm and layered on top of a piece of 4.5 x 9.5 cm Whisper White card stock.
To make the belly band I trimmed a 1.5cm wide strip off the longest side of an A4 sheet of Pacific Point card stock. I wrapped it around the card and adhered it behind the “wishing you the berry best” sentiment.
The pretty little flowers on my belly band are punched out from another sheet of DSP in the Berry Delightful DSP pack using the Strawberry Builder punch from the co-ordinating Sweet Strawberry Bundle with a Blue Adhesive-Backed Gem in the centre of each flower.
The strawberry builder punch not only punches out the stamps in the co-ordinating Sweet Strawberry stamp set, it also punches out the blossoms, the leaves and the strawberries from one of the sheets in the Berry Delightful DSP – how cool is that!
I didn’t forget to decorate the front of my envelope – the berry stamps in the Berry Blessings stamp set match this DSP perfectly!
