Global Stamping Friends May Blog Hop Colorful Creations

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends May Blog Hop as we showcase Colorful Creations using beautiful new and returning colors from Stampin' Up! Our Design Team is excited to share their projects and ideas to help inspire you to explore the wonderful range of colors that Stampin' Up! has to offer.
I love the ocean, so the new Beauty of the Deep Bundle was one of the first products that caught my eye in the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. I love the combination of stamp images and dies and couldn't wait to create a card design with them. I paired them with the new Countryside Corners Dies to create the frame and background for my design and I embossed the Pool Party background layer with the Cascading Ruffles 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to create the feeling of water. The colors I chose for this card design include Lost Lagoon, Pretty Peacock, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Wild Wheat, combining new and returning colors with some of my current favorite colors. I love the feeling of looking through a window into an ocean scene that you might see at an aquarium.

One of my favorite things to do is experiment with new color combinations and I had so much fun mixing and matching some of the new/returning colors with some of my existing favorites. I was looking for a color combination that would reflect the colors of the sea and I am happy with how it turned out. The Countryside Corners Dies are wonderful for creating frames and windows, which is what I used them for in this card design. I used the new Wild Wheat In Color to stamp one of the fish images and I really like how it turned out. It created a more realistic looking fish for my design and worked well with the other colors. The coral die cut adds a lovely pop of color to the design and I used some of the pieces that popped out of the die cut to create the extra coral pieces on the left side of the card design. The sentiment is from the new Circle Sayings stamp set and I thought it worked perfectly for this card. The Gold heat embossing of the sentiment coordinates well with the rest of the design. I really love how this card turned out and I can't wait to explore using these new products and colors more in the future.

  1. The countryside corner dies weren't on my wishlist but I love your frame so I might add them to my next order :)
