Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.
Today, I’d like to share with you two cards that I created using Stampin’ Up’s new 2021-2023 In Colors and the Baby Pull Toys Stamp Set along with a few other goodies from the new Annual Catalog and a couple of goodies retiring soon.
The first card I’d like to share with you is Polished Pink. My Color Combination for this card is:
Polished Pink, Blushing Bride and Gray Granite.
The Cardbase is Polished Pink Cardstock. It’s our standard A2 Cardbase.
If there’s something that I’ve truly found joy in lately, it’s creating my own DSP. Using a ruler and Stampin’ Write Markers, I hand drew those lines in Polished Pink, Blushing Bride and Gray Granite.
I used the Layering Squares Dies (because sadly they’re retiring and leaving us) to die cut a square in Basic White Cardstock and a scalloped square in Blushing Bride.
I stamped the elephant image and the hearts image and hand colored them with the Stampin’ Blend Markers in Light Gray Granite and both Light and Dark Polished Pink.
I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock in Polished Pink Ink and used the Pick A Banner Punch.
I added the Polished Pink Ribbon and Jewels just for effect.
Everything is adhered down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Glue Dots and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Here’s a great debate. NEVER in a million years would I have EVER thought that my husband would chose something pink over purple – but he did. Me, personally, I chose the next card I’m about to share with you as my favorite and I really need y’alls help settling the great debate. Ya’ll can help me settle it by just simply leaving a comment on the Blog letting us know which one you like better.
The Color Combination used for this card is Fresh Freesia, Soft Sea Foam and Gray Granite.
Although the Cards are similar there was a difference between the two. For the Custom DSP, I used the Stampin’ Blend Markers instead of the Stampin’ Write Markers.
Whether you decide to use the Stampin’ Write Markers or the Stampin’ Blend Markers make sure that you allow the ink to dry fully and clean your ruler off frequently. Try to use different sections of the ruler for each color.
Instead of doing diagonal stripes, I decided to do almost a plaid effect with the background.
I’m sure that whoever receives either of these beautiful cards will appreciate them. I mean, who really isn’t in love with these new beautiful In Colors already?!
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ve enjoyed these cards and will join me again soon for another edition.
Until next time – Happy Stampin Everyone!!
