Healing Hugs with Soft Sea Foam
Soft Sea Foam is one of the new colors added to the Stampin’ Up! color palette this past June. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites even though it is a soft color, it is rich in color and compliments so many of the current colors. Have you looked at the color revamp introduced in June? If you haven’t, no worries, as I will add the link to this post for you to reference. In the meantime, let’s look at the Healing Hugs with Soft Sea Foam card I created.
Heartfelt Hugs Stamp Set!
Recently, one of the girls at my gym donated her kidney to a friend of hers and I wanted to make a card for her. Before I knew it, the Tufted Embossing Folder was out as well as the Healing Hugs Stamp Set. The rose in the set is know as a distinkive stamp. This type of stamp (image, patent pending) was first introduced during Sale-a-bration with the stamp set, Heart Felt Blooms. What is means, the stamp was actually a photography of a flower and the stamp was created from it! It shows the details in just one stamp! How cool!!!
Be sure to watch this video from Home Office highlighting the stamp set! GREAT TIPS!!!
One Stamp Set, Two Cards!
For today’s cards, my color combination was picked actually from the ribbon! I love the new mini striped ribbon and especially in the Gorgeous Grape! The Tufted Embossing Folder Cards were created first and as you can see I switched the ribbon to white for the Highland Heather Rose. The Gorgeous Grape was just a tad too dark. After I made both, I was still feeling creative and wanted to get my hands a little dirty with sponging. After heat embossing one of leaves from the set on Whisper White card stock in clear, I sponged Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam. Of the two styles, do you prefer one over the other?
2018 Color Revamp
When the Annual Catalog was launched in June 2018, along came a color revamp. It had been a few years since there was a restructuring with the colors and it was a welcoming surprise. In addition to the new 5 In Colors, Stampin’ Up! released 10 new colors, returned 6 colors and a reorganized the color families! I will say hands down – OUTSTANDING JOB by Stampin’ Up! to introduce some amazing new colors as well as return some of the favorites! Take a look AND if you act now and JOIN Stampin’ Up! this month, you can receive a whole family of ink pads for FREE in the starter kit (value $67.50!)
I can not believe it is already the weekend! I have some baseball games to attend but I also have plenty of crafting to do! Trying what to create is often my biggest roadblock! My scrapbooking days have been on the back burner and I miss creating keepsakes for my boys. Have you all been scrapbooking or are you into cards only? Well as long as you crafting, I am sure you are enjoying every moment of it. I am off to start another project and wrap up a few more things. I can not believe the Alaska Incentive Trip I earned last week is one week away and I want to make sure I have all my crafting things complete to share!
