Introducing the Stampin' Up! 2016-2018 In Colors

Hi everyone!

Welcome to our second Jems blog hop where we are showcasing the new In colors for 2016-2018.

This first card shows all 5 colours together, they are (from top to bottom) Flirty flamingo, Emerald envy, Peekaboo peach, Sweet sugarplum and Dapper denim. The card uses the Sprinkles of Life stamp set (I’m so glad this set carried over, it’s one of my faves!) and coordinating tree builder punch. The cone is stamped in Delightful Dijon and there’s a little clear Wink of Stella on each scoop of ice-cream for an added bit of shimmer – if you haven’t discovered Wink of Stella yet it’s AMAZING!! You’ll be addicted in no time!!

It’s hard to capture the effect properly on camera but you can see the shimmer a little here.

Next up I made a single colour card for each of the new colours, I used the various flowers from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set to simply stamp the top corner of each card and the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set for the sentiment. The cards are all made with Very vanilla and a layer of cardstock in the same colour as the ink. It would work just as well on Whisper white too!

 Flirty Flamingo
 Emerald Envy
 Peekaboo Peach

 Sweet Sugarplum

 Dapper Denim

Again I highlighted selected areas with a little clear Wink of Stella, hopefully you can see below!

Hope you agree the new colours are gorgeous!
