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 Seaside Spray, a soon to be retired 2019-21 In colour that I’m really going to miss!
This week I’m also using a stamp set and co-ordinating punch that are retiring soon – the Basket of Blooms stamp set and the small bloom punch.
For quick and easy colouring I simply stamped my pot and leaves in Memento Ink onto Shimmery White card stock and coloured the pot in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the leaves using Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
The ground below the post and the area around the pot were also coloured using Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends . I love the stamp in this set that is a piece of twine wrapped around the pot.
The flowers were stamped onto a separate piece of paper and coloured in with Night of Navy and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends before being punched out with the small bloom punch or fussy cut. I’ve layered the largest flower and used silver metallic pearls for the centre of the flowers.
Don’t you just love the border created by the touch of whimsy dies? I’m so glad these are not retiring – the metallic pearls and the stitched with whimsy dies are both carrying over to the new catalogue, hooray!
The subtle embossing folder will also be sorely missed – I love the dimension this gives to card stock.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created with Seaside Spray today!
