Best of Greetings—Celebrating In Colors

Hi Stamping Friends!

When I was designing cards for my Best of Greetings club kit this month, one of my goals was to feature as many new catalog products as I could.  I wanted my club members to experience lots of new papers, new tools and new embellishments. 

The last card from the kit really gave them a lot of bang for their "new catalog items" buck!  Haha!

Since we were focusing on only greetings in this stamp set, it was a perfect time for me to show-off the lovely new In Colors with a Designer Papers background!

This year, Stampin' Up! changed the patterns in the big Designer Series Paper Stacks, so I featured each color in a different new pattern. 

I especially love the In Color Stack because you get 4 each of 2 double-sided designs in each of the 5 colors—40 sheets in all!  That's a lot of paper!

Each strip is 3-3/4" long, but I varied the widths of each strip: Strawberry Slush is 3/4", Coastal Cabana is 1", Baked Brown Sugar is 3/4", Pistachio Pudding card stock is 1-1/4", and Crisp Cantaloupe is 3/4".

I used a Corner Rounder Punch on the top two corners of the Strawberry Slush strip and the bottom two corners of the Crisp Cantaloupe strip.

I stamped the Best of Greeting sentiment on the Pistachio Pudding strip in Baked Brown Sugar ink. 

After adhering all of the strips to a 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White panel, I wrapped some Coastal Cabana Ruffled Stretch Trim around the front and adhere to the back with SNAIL.

The paper flower was made with three Pansy Flower punches from the Strawberry Slush patterned paper.  I crumpled the flowers, then pierced a hole in the center and added one of the new Candy Dot Brad Bases.  They aren't just for Candy Dots, ya know!  Rhinestone Jewels fit very nicely in the center, too!  Talk about versatile!

After attaching the flower to the panel, I adhered the entire layer to the Baked Brown Sugar card base.

Two Cool!  I flipped over all of my paper strips for the second card to change up the look.

I added a few more Rhinestones to enhance the whimsy of the fun "you made my day" font.
