Hi Stamping Friends!
I received my big NEW Catalog order yesterday—Woohoo! It's one of my most favorite days of the year! I can't wait to try it all out, but the first thing I wanted to do was finish up my In Color Club Cards with some new items! I think participants are going to LOVE the cards this year!
Each month's In Color Club card kit focuses on one In Color, but I've designed them with all kinds of fun new stuff from the catalog! You'll be able to try out 12 new products in addition to the new In Color products included for the month! Play with new embossing folder textures, die-cuts, Designer Series Paper & ribbon!
I've also added two cool versions of each card, so you have a variety of looks for each card style. Too Cool!

Receive One NEW In Color & 4-Card Kit Each Month!
Powder Pink Lovely Words Cards!
Yesterday I shared the cards that my In Color Club participants will create during their Lemon Lime Twist month. Today, I'm sharing the 4 cards that my Club members will make during their Powder Pink month. I've made two cool versions and featured a pretty new Thinlits set called Lovely Words, as well as a couple of awesome new embossing folders!
Dynamic Texture—The first of the four cards is embossed with the NEW Layering Leaves Dynamic Texture Impressions Folder! This is one of those ultra-thick embossing folders and the foliage pattern is GORGEOUS! Remember, you'll only need ONE cutting plate when embossing with Dynamic Folders. I embossed a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Powder Pink card stock, then adhered it to a Very Vanilla card base.
Pretty Papers—I added a strip of 5-1/4" x 1-1/2" Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper along the center with SNAIL. Then I trimmed the ends of a 4-1/2" piece of 1/2" Powder Pink Finely Woven Ribbon and used SNAIL to adhere it to the center of the DSP.
Watercolor Wash Background—I die-cut a 3" long oval from Watercolor Paper using the Layering Ovals Framelits. To add the wash of color, I scribbled over the watercolor paper with the Powder Pink Stampin' Write Marker. Next, I squeezed my Powder Pink ink pad to transfer ink to the lid, then used that as a palette. I used an Aqua Painter to pick up some additional ink and paint it over the marker strokes, giving it deeper color and blending out the stroke lines to look more like a watercolor wash.
Sweet Sentiment—I die-cut the Lovely Words oval from Gold Foil using a Precision Base Plate to keep the foil smooth & shiny (see my Too Cool Tip Video on Smooth Foil Die-Cuts). I adhered the die-cut to the watercolor paper using a sponge and Multipurpose Glue (see my Too Cool Tip Video on Silicone Craft Mat to learn how to best adhere die-cuts). The focal point is popped up with Dimensionals.
Two Cool—My second card is embossed with the Petal Burst Texture Impressions Folder. This time I fish-tailed the end of the Delightful Daisy DSP banner.
Hugs Sentiment—The focal point begins with a 2-5/8" diameter Layering Circles die-cut shape this time, which coordinates perfectly with the "hugs" Lovely Words Thinlit. I tied a bow with the NEW 1/2" Powder Pink Finely Woven Ribbon and attached it with a Glue Dot.
Three Cool—The next two cards use a Very Vanilla background on a Powder Pink card base. This one is embossed with the Brick Wall Texture Impressions Folder.
New Ribbon—I tied some NEW 1/8" Calypso Coral Sheer Ribbon around the background layers before mounting it onto the card base.
Four Cool—The background on the final card is embossed with the NEW Sweetheart embossing folder.
This folder has a non-textured heart shape in the center, so I matched up the "blank" spot with the heart-shaped Lovely Words die-cut.
I found a coordinating heart shape for the background from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits. I finished this one off by adding a 1/8" Calypso Coral Sheer Ribbon bow with a Glue Dot. So, so sweet!
