Ha, yes, those words actually went through my head as I was making this card. “Just tone it down with a little bit of Crushed Curry, the world’s most intense yellow.”
I’m SO happy with the new In Colors that Stampin’ Up! is coming out with in June. My two favorites are Lemon-Lime Twist and Berry Burst (both used in this card), though I actually love all five of them, and that might be the first time that’s happened for me.
When I saw the new Global Design Project challenge this week, I felt really special. “They made a challenge to cater specifically to ME?? How NICE of them!”
I’m always astounded that people can make pretty cards without some kind of bling. Not me! But there are people who do it.
I used the (coming soon) Fresh Florals designer series paper stack for my background on this card. Both of these gorgeous papers are in the stack. This will probably be my go-to paper for the next year. It’s SO lovely. I’ve already chopped up a lot of it to have it ready to go for cardfronts. I wanted a little border between the two pieces, so I stuck in a 1/4″-inch strip of Lemon-Lime Twist cardstock. I stamped the sentiment, from the All Things Thanks stamp set, directly on the DSP. I outlined that with a frame cut out of Berry Burst cardstock with the two largest scalloped circles in the Layering Circles framelits. I popped up the frame on a Foam Strip.
The Crushed Curry ribbon is new 3/8″ Chevron Ribbon (available June 1 to customers). I wrapped the ribbon around the left edge of the main card design. Why? Because even though I used a MISTI, I still managed to stamp my sentiment off-center. Natch.
The Glitter Enamel Dots may be my favorite new embellishment in the new catalog. The colors I used here are Berry Burst, Old Olive (the lighter shades work for Lemon-Lime Twist), and Crushed Curry. Aren’t they purty? They also come in Dapper Denim.
I put another strip of this gorgeous paper inside the card.
So that’s my card. Thanks for coming by!
