One of my favorite new products in the 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog is the Lovely Words Thinlits. There are three shapes with a word inside. The heart has lovely, the circle says hugs, and friend is in the oval.
I used the friend thinlit in this post . Here are the other two.
We’ll be making these in June classes. The shapes and words are cut from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (DSP) paper, then backed with a coordinating color of cardstock. Add a daisy and some ribbon and you have a quick and simple but very pretty card.
The daisy is the beautiful daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set, punched with the Daisy Punch, of course. There are so many color possibilities for this – and they’re all lovely.
I decided to use the new In Colors for this card. I cut a few card bases from each new In Color (Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink shown here), then used the coordinating Fresh Forals DSP for the top layer. The daisies are stamped in the darker of the two colors, and then the petals are colored with the lighter color and an Aqua Painter.
Here are all the color combinations –
Lemon Lime Twist/Bermuda Bay
Powder Pink/Wisteria Wonder
Fresh Fig/Calypso Coral
Berry Burst/Perfect Plum
Tranquil Tide/Pool Party
These are great combinations, if I do say so myself! My favorite, I think, is Berry Burst/Perfect Plum. But Lemon Lime Twist/Bermuda Bay is also a gorgeous combo, especially for summer.
It was fun matching all the new ribbon up with the cards. I used the Bermuda Bay 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon for the Lemon Lime Twist card, and Powder Pink 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon for the Powder Pink card. Ribbon for the other three choices are – Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding for the Fresh Fig card, Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon for the Berry Burst card, and 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon for the Tranquil Tide card.
I’m loving the new 2017-18 In Colors! I hope you are as well. Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
