Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Sneak Peek

I’m sharing a sneak peek of the new Colorful Seasons Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog with you today.  This set caught my eye at OnStage and I was so glad it was part of the pre-order for demonstrators.  I love it because it is a photopolymer stamp set and it can be used year round!  I am crazy about the sentiments, too

Colorful Seasons (available June 1st), is part of the Color Theory Suite of products.

The inspiration for my Colorful Seasons card came from one found in the new catalog!  I will be sending out new catalogs in the middle of May to all of my customers who have purchased at least $50 of products from my online store in the last 12 months.  If you’d like a free catalog, make sure you qualify for one so I can send you yours.  Also, if your address has changed, I need you to update your profile ASAP.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper (available on June 1st) to a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I pulled out the ground image stamp from Sheltering Tree and stamped it in Crumb Cake ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  Next, I pulled out one of the large swirls from the Swirly Bird stamp set and stamped it in Crushed Curry ink in the upper left hand corner to represent the sun.

The chair was stamped first in Crumb Cake, then in Crushed Curry.  I stamped one of the sentiments from Colorful Seasons in Versa Mark ink, dusted it with Copper Emboss powder and heat embossed it.  The little daisy type flower is from Swirly Bird and was fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  My art panel was framed with a panel of Crushed Curry.  I wrapped a length of the new Copper Trim (available June 1st) around the first layered panel and tied a bow, then popped the art panel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, the bottom layer was also popped onto the Crushed Curry card base with dimensionals.

Don’t you love this inside sentiment?  I first stamped the flower images from Colorful Seasons in Crushed Curry, then inked my sentiment stamp in Versa Mark and heat embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder.  

A complete list of stamping supplies as well as card stock cuts will be at the end of this post.
