This is the first stop on the tour, but you may have just visited the very talented, Dawn Olchefske. She always has some amazing projects to share. You’ll want to read through to end of this post to find out your next stop on the tour.
Every year, Stampin’ UP! introduces five new colors to add to our existing line. These colors are only available for 2 years, and then they are retired. I like to introduce customers to the new IN Color arrivals at my new catalog launch parties. I find the best way to do that is with a simple make & take project that is quick, easy, and highlights each individual color.
Thick Whisper White Card Stock
In Color 8-1/2″ x 11″ Card Stock
Happy Birthday Thinlits (with the Big Shot)
Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack
1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in each color
To conserve paper, I cut the Happy Birthday Thinlits from the In Color Card Stock that is behind the front panel. I love showing my customers neat little tricks like this! The measurements that I use for the Designer Series Paper also helps with maximizing the paper for creating multiple cards.
Whisper White: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ OR 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
In Color Card Stock: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper: 1-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ or 3/4″ by 5″
At my open house events, I will let my customers select their favorite color for their make & take project. It is exciting to see which colors are the most popular each year. I haven’t picked a favorite because I love them all!
Have you picked a favorite new In Color?
Tell me about in the comments. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Don’t forget to visit Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek to continue on the blog tour. She always has such inspirational projects on her blog!
It’s Friday and you know what that means: time for a fabulous TGIF Challenge! This week is a sketch challenge. The sketch is very simple, so you can keep it very clean or really step it up. If you’d like to see what the other talented designers created, be sure to click on the challenge image below. Add the hastag #tgifc108 to your projects so that we may find them easily and show you some comment love.
I used some of the sneak peek items that you’ve already seen for this card, but I also added a few new elements that you are definitely going to want. The black and white background paper is from the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper. Of course, the daisy is from the Daisy Delight stamp set and was punched with the Daisy punch. You can see more with these products here and here.
For this card, I popped it with a Crushed Curry Happy Birthday greeting. The greeting was die-cut with the Big Shot and Happy Birthday Thinlit, which you can purchase on June 1. I’ve also added a bit of Crushed Curry Mini Chevron 3/8″ riboon.
