It’s Inspire Create Share Blog Hop time! This month we are introducing the New In Colors for 2019-2021! They are so gorgeous! I found this color sample from Brian King (one of the demos I follow) to show you the colors. I love how he makes them look wet and I need to learn how to make my own!
Purple Posy is not available at this time in ink pads. A quality issue they are working to solve. So, I chose to use Pretty Peacock, Rococo Rose, and Seaside Spray for my project today. Do you want to hear a funny-ish story as to why? Yeah, so I was ordering the other 4 ink pads and apparently mixed up my numbers and got a Terracotta Tile re-inker instead of the ink pad. Durn-it! Thought about using it in my spritzer, but needed to keep it simple today due to time constraints! (subbing, baseball, new job)
I chose to use the Beauty Abounds stamp set and Butterfly Beauty dies since they were a happy carry over from the Occasions catalog to the new Annual catalog! Yippee!! I hadn’t used them yet! As I was beginning, my brain went blank. Not an idea came to me at all! I knew I wanted to use the big die full of butterflies, so I opened up the catalogs to see what Stampin’ Up! made with them and found a card to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) in the Occasions catalog on page 13. Never throw away your catalogs! They are full of inspiration and CASEable projects! I changed it up a bit, of course, yet fairly close.
I added the Scalloped Linen Ribbon under the Story Label punch. Then I stamped a sentiment from the Healing Hugs stamp set (another happy carry over to the New Annual catalog!) and distressed the edges in the Rococo Rose. I used dimensionals under the label and adhesive under the ribbon to adhere it to the butterflies.
I like how it turned out. What do you think? Now it is time for you to hop on over to Debbi Green to see what amazing creation she has to share with you! Enjoy!
