Sunshine Wishes Congrats Card

These thinlit dies, Sunshine Wishes, have been around for a couple years and I just LOVE them! I love the font of the script as well as the other shapes (heart, flower and butterfly) included in the set. This on definitely one of my “go-to” items in my stash of crafting tools.

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge this week it is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge, I like these challenges because the design is done for me…all I have to do is add my favorites and I have a great card in a short time. If you are like me, the design phase takes the most time.

I love the simplicity and timelessness of this sketch, it could be used for every occasion. Seems to me that the options are endless. Want to see what I came up with?

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Paper:
    • Garden Green: 4-1/4″ x 11″ card base, 1/2″ x 4-1/8″, scrap for “congrats”
    • Powder Pink: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
    • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper: 2″ x 4″
    • 2017-2019 In Color Designer Series Paper: 3-1/4″ x 4″
    • Vellum: 1″ x 5-1/2″
    • Gold Glimmer Paper: scrap for heart
  • Accessories: Linen Thread, Metallic Pearls
  • Tools: Big Shot, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies
  • Adhesive: SNAIL, Glue Dots
It’s All in the Details:

I love how all the elements came together but my favorite part how the “congrats” is tucked under the Linen Thread in a few places. I did this for a couple reasons…1) it helped hold it in place without using a lot of adhesive and 2) it adds interest being woven into the thread.

Color Revamp!

Stampin' Up! Color Revamp is going to add some spice and variety to your color options. For details click through to my blog. #stampinup #colorrevamp #crackedpotstamper #loveitliveitshareit

THE COLORS ARE EVOLVING!

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! make a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review their color spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!

In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, they decided it was time to give their color collections a makeover.

With this revamp, they will have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting.

I am absolutely in LOVE with all these new colors and the endless possibilities for color combinations!!

COLOR REVAMP DETAILS

There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.

In order to keep the color collections exclusive to Stampin’ Up! colors, they moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collections. They’ve also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collections, making it more exciting and colorful!

Some additional colors have changed collections as well-you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. You can refer to the old and new color charts in the 2018-2019 catalog. These changes were based on needing to maintain color balance in the updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection.

Stampin' Up! Color Revamp is going to add some spice and variety to your color options. For details click through to my blog. #stampinup #colorrevamp #crackedpotstamper #loveitliveitshareit

 

IN COLORS

There are no changes to the In Color program. Every two years Stampin’ Up! will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.
