JAI 603 colour challenge - rainbows of happiness

Handmade rainbow card using Stampin Up Rainbow of Happiness stamp set and bundle, Basic Borders dies, cloud punch, Happiness Abounds stamp set & bundle. Card by Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - #stampinupcards #colourmehappy #diecutting

Hello & welcome to another project share - my Just Add Ink design team project for this week's colour challenge suggested by Nikki. The challenge colours are Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride & Rich Razzleberry.

What to do what to do? For some reason stripes then a rainbow popped into my mind, even though the colours are defintely not your typical rainbow. So I grabbed the Rainbow of Happiness stamp & die bundle and some other supporting goodies. This is what I made.

The rainbow - First I played around with the large, partial rainbow dies to see if the colours worked as a rainbow - I think they do - then started building the card around it. Note: the full rainbow die has four sections - I only used three to stick to the colour challenge limits. I think it still works well with three.

Clouds - The Basic Borders die has a lovely stitched cloud-like border, so I used this together with the retired Subtle embossing folder  (still a fave though - I know many of you love it too). It helps ground the rainbow on the card.

Background - Did you spot the text background? I repeat stamped the 'sending you a rainbow of happiness' image free hand down a piece of white card using Mint Macaron ink pad. It's not perfect but reminds me of a hand written letter  I embossed this with the Subtle folder too

Tip: Don't remember a long sentiment in Rainbow of Happiness? see the stamp set image below. It's actually a rainbow (U) shaped image but since the stamp is photopolymer & sticky I was able to gently mount it straight onto a clear block. Once removed, the goes back to its usual shape.

One more note about the rainbow. I attached the rainbow and the pieces between them to another piece of card so it was easier to pop them up and so the text wouldn't show through the rainbow. Then I added another layer of the colours on top to help them pop more off the white. Small things can make a difference visually.

Sentiment - punched for fun with the Cloud punch - is from the gorgeous new Happiness Abounds stamp set and bundle. I love the combination of script and block letters and there are so many more and useful sentiments included, and did I mention gorgeous floral line images. You are going to see lots of this. It's stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

Final touches - Some Iridescent rhinestones and Glittered white organdy ribbon add a little sparkle.

The final card is a little longer & wider than a regular card - I seem to be in a custom card phase. You could easily make it regular size by not adding the border around.

No pics of inside but you can be sure there's a rainbow and coordinating sentiment from Happiness Abounds.

So another challenge done and sparkled. Head to the Just Add Ink blog to see all our Design Team projects using the colours. You're sure to find lots of inspiration.

Stampin Up Stampin Blends Alcohol Markers Colour Chart 2022 pdf download - Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney AustraliaStampin' Up! 2022-2024 In colors - - Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia

Hello & welcome! Today I'm excited to share our new In Color release for 2022 and a Colour Chart update for our Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

New colour releases are probably the most anticipated element of a new catalogue launch. The 2022-23 Annual Catalogue includes 5 new In Colors - Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis, and Starry Sky- and they'll stay in our collection until 2024. They're a bold & happy combination that look great together and will work well with our current colour collections. Take a closer look.

Stampin' Up! 2022-2024 In colors - - Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia

All colours are available as ink pads, cardstock, paper, accessories, Stampin' Write water based markers, and of course of Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Yay! I am so excited to see the new blues especially. How about you? Here's how the new In Color Blends shades look together.

Stampin Up Stampin Blends Alcohol Markers Colour Chart 2022 pdf download - Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney AustraliaAn extra treat for Stampin Blends lovers is that the 10 Natural Tones Collection Stampin' Blends special release from March are also included in the 22-23 Annual Catalogue.

Natural Tones markers are a bit different in that they're not actual colours in our range. They're neutral shades designed to blend together to create custom skin tones, or use on projects with lots of neutrals - browns.

There are 5 sets of 2 markers - Deep, Medium Deep, Medium, Medium Light & Light - and each marker is individually identified with a code ranging from SU100 (deepest) - SU1000 (lightest). These are all included in my colour chart.


2022 STAMPIN BLENDS COLOUR CHART DOWNLOAD

My Stampin Blends Colour Chart makes it easy to find shades to blend together and keep a record of which colours you have and need. And it's so pretty coloured in. I arrange them in colour spectrum order so you can easily find potential combinations to try.

For this update (number 8!) there are too many colours to colour properly on one page, so retired colours are listed on a second page. You can choose to print this page or not.

My coloured-in chart is a good reference if you don't yet have all colours - some really are quite similar so it can help you prioritise purchases. Click on the pics for a larger view. Remember it is a photo though (taken on a very dull day) so colours will look different on each device it's viewed on.

Poppy Moments wedding card

 
We were thrilled to recently celebrate the wedding of a dear family friend and his beautiful bride and so an extra special card was in order for this wonderful couple. After much thought I chose to make a pretty and elegant, and larger than normal sized card with the gorgeous Poppy Moments die set.

You'll spot some new catalogue purchases too and a couple or retired ones too. Soft Sea Foam, Smoky Slate and white are one of my favourite colour combinations for soft, elegant cards so that's where I started. Here's how it turned out.

The card front is 12.5 x 17.5cm (5 x 7 inches), which gave lots of space for the gorgeous poppies. I made a custom envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.

I used both the large poppy and side facing poppy, with white card and vellum for my poppy flowers, and white and smoky slate for the leaves.

Poppy Moments dies is such a fab floral set. It includes 2 flower and leaf options with solid and outline shapes, plus centres and other supporting shapes.
 

I layered 3 large poppies and 2 side facing poppies and the sentiment circle onto a embossed white matting layer, embossed with the new and beautiful Fern embossing folder.

The sentiments on the front and inside is from the retired Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.

And did you spot the pierced circle?  It's from the fabulous new must-have  - Stylish Shapes die set. There are nested circles, squares and banners in the set and all include piercing inside and out of the cut. I've layered this on a Smoky Slate circle cut with one of the Layering Circles die set.
 
Take a closer look at both the Stylish Shapes dies and Fern embossing folder - click on the pics for a larger view. You'll find shopping links to purchase both items and all other project supplies here in my Stampin' Up! store.

Glittered organdy ribbon and clear Opal Rounds embellishments add delicate details to the card

I coloured the white ribbon with a Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker - It's so easy to do, and the colour dries almost instantly. You'll never be without a coordinating ribbon with this trick.

Inside I carried the theme over with another layered side poppy and leaf placed around two more sentiment stamps on a layered mat.

Whales of the Ocean cards

Cards by Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - colourmehappy - stampinupcards - stampinupaustralia - cardmaking - stamping - handmade cards

Remember the whale card I shared a couple of weeks ago? I got a bit whale obsessed and made more cards - this time teamed with a paper print from the amazing Waves of the Ocean paper pack  to create some fun watery scenes. Sadly this is a last hurrah for the paper as it's only available until 2 May. Get it now if you love it. Take a closer look at the cards:
 
Up first is a birthday card. It's a slimline card - the paper looked so cool I wanted to use as much as possible. I embossed it with the retiring Tasteful Textile embossing folder to make it more tactile and real looking. PS. the card front is 21cm x 10cm (approx 8-3/8 x 4 inches) and fits a DL business envelope.

The bold birthday sentiment - yes, my favourite Biggest Wish stamp set again, stamped in night of navy. The large, tall sentiment suits the long card.

Then there's our friendly little blue whale So easy to make a whole pod with the Whale punch. I wanted the whale to look like its swimming in the water.

Inside I used the large birthday sentiment from the retiring Happiest of Birthdays stamp set and snuck in another whale, because cute!

My second card is a simpler, regular sized card, but it still has the fabulous water look paper and a cute whale. The Hello sentiment is also from Biggest Wish and is stamped on a tag from the Tailored Tags die set.

JAI 601 sketch challenge - Let's have a cup of tea

 Handmade cup of tea card using Stampin Up Cup of Tea stamp set and bundle & Teacups dies, & Beautiful Shapes dies, Card by Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - colourmehappy - stampinupaustrallia - diecutting - cardmaking - stamping - stampinupcards

Hello & welcome. Today I'm sharing a sweet tea cup themed card using the new Cup of Tea stamp set and bundle. This is my Design Team project for this week's Just Add Ink challenge, which is a sketch with many, many possibilities. I hope you like how I used it.

Handmade cup of tea card using Stampin Up Cup of Tea stamp set and bundle & Teacups dies, & Beautiful Shapes dies, Card by Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - colourmehappy - stampinupaustrallia - diecutting - cardmaking - stamping - stampinupcards

I started with a lovely Pale Papaya gingham print paper from the retiring gorgeous Pansy Petals paper pack, which I embossed with the retiring & sold out Tasteful Textiles embossing folder).

I chose to use layers of hexagons to represent the two circles in the sketch. This was inspired by a beautiful wedding invitation we received that included overlapped hexagons. I created my own version by cutting & adhering multiple hexagon frames using the two largest hexagon dies in the Beautiful Shapes die set.

I took a little liberty with the horizontal line in the sketch to include the die cut cup in the same position. To make the cup, I cut and adhered two white cup die cuts then adhered the navy detailed outline. Then, I used Pool Party & Pale Papaya Stampin Blends markers to partially colour in the cup.

The sentiment (also from Cup of Tea stamp set & bundle) is stamped on a white hexagon & adhered in the centre of the layered hexagons.

The final details cements the theme - two cute die cut teabag tag shapes and hearts tied with Linen Thread, crinkled white seam binding ribbon, and petal pink Polished Dots.
