Welcome to the Inspire Create Share Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators and we hop together on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. We have a monthly theme for the hop and this month it is the new Core Colors. Every few years Stampin' Up! does a Color Refresh and this is the year. There were 4 new colors introduced: Lemon Lolly, Bubble Bath, Azure Afternoon and Pecan Pie. Fresh Freesia was an In Color that stayed in the Color Collection and these previous in-colors were brought back: Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Lost Lagoon, Misty Moonlight, Blueberry Bushel, and Pretty Peacock. I love the new colors and am having fun learning new color combinations.
Blueberry Bushel and Lemon Lolly, oh my! When I saw the Blueberry Bushel gingham in the Glorious Gingham DSP pack it made me think of a summer dress and I knew it needed some eyelet...enter the Darling Details dies. I used the Darling Details dies for the trim on either side of the gingham. What could be more summery than daisies? I used the Cheerful Daisies dies and cut out the large die (with 3 daisies) two times. The daisies were cut apart and the centers colored with Lemon Lolly ink. The sentiment is from the Cheerful Daisies set stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink and cut out using the label die in the Cheerful Daisies dies. The finishing touch were a few Lemon Lolly Adhesive Backed Solid Gems.
Inside of the card is another strip of Blueberry Bushel Glorious Gingham DSP and one of the remaining daisies. There is one more daisy roaming around my desk that will be used on another card.
Now it is time for you to check out what the talented Debbi Green has made with the new Core Colors!
