A Colour Challenge...Take 2

As I mentioned on Saturday, my up, upline Kristine challenged us to come up with a card using Emerald Envy, Island Indigo, and Daffodil Delight as well as incorporate a piece of the new Ruched Ribbon in Emerald Envy into our creation. It really had me stumped - I couldn't seem to get past the "masculine"-ish colours and my mind drew a blank! I eventually threw some some Watermelon Wonder into the mix and the ideas came much easier! Here is my Take 2 at the challenge:
I used the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to complete this card. I also used Blushing Bride ink and cardstock as well as So Saffron ink (under the Daffodil Delight flower). I was much happier with my second creation. Which one is your favorite?

Happy Stampin'!

Swirly Bird Flies a Kite

Every month my up, upline Kristine holds a team meeting and always sends us away with a new card challenge. This month we were challenged to use some of the new In Colours....I got Emerald Envy along with Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight. I also had a piece of the new Ruched Ribbon in Emerald Envy to incorporate in there! I found it very challenging to say the least, but eventually, after I added in some Watermelon Wonder, things started to come together for me!  I pulled out my new Swirly Bird stamp set and Confetti Celebration and came up with this card:
The Swirly Bird set is photopolymer so it makes lining up the triangles for the kites a cinch! I wasn't totally in love with my first crack at the challenge so I came up with another card using the same 4 colours....I will come back with that card in a couple days!

It's supposed to be a beautiful sunny weekend here in Calgary - a perfect day to fly a kite! Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Flamingos Are In, Who Knew?!

I didn't realize it until Stampin' Up! released their catalogue sneak peek, but Flamingos and Pineapples are HOT right now! Since noticing them first with Stampin' Up! last month, I have been seeing them everywhere lately - on t-shirts, home decor, bags, you name it.... once again SU is on trend! They have their very own market research team who study trends with fashion, etc. to help guide new In Colours and catalogue products! Fun, huh?!

Just one of the perks of being a demonstrator is seeing the new catalogues before anyone else and being able to order new products first! I recently took part in a swap with other members of my team using products from the demonstrator preorder, and incorporated 3 of the stamp sets we were able to get before the catalogue was officially released June 1. The Flamingo is from the Pop of Paradise stamp set, the gold embossed swirl is from Swirly Bird, and the sentiment is from Confetti Celebration! The DSP you see is also new and is from the Pop of Pink DSP pack Keeping with the heart theme, I used a couple gold hearts from the Metallics Sequin Assortment which were carried over from the last catalogue. Thank you to Robyn Cardon for the idea of embossing the swirl in gold - I love how it turned out and was super simple!
