Summer has arrived! Time for flip-flops and tropical drinks with little umbrellas in them! The Pop of Paradise Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! is ideal for all our Summer celebrations. It’s images of flamingos, palm leaves and pineapples remind me of vacations spent at the beach. Just look at these lush projects from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog and Idea Book:
Are you in love? The projects above are paired with the new Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Specialty Paper. You just can’t miss with the gold/black/pink combination however I wanted to feature the fabulous new Stampin’ Up! In-Colors for 2016-2018 in today’s post so my project uses those. I created this sweet little set of 3″ x 3″ note cards using all five of the new colors.
From left to right the new 2016 In-Colors are: Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach, Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo! Can you just? I used the charming pineapple image from the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set for the cards’ focal point and the thank you sentiment is from another new stamp set, Thoughtful Banners. And, how about those perfectly square and framed layers? I used the new Layering Squares Framelits along with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine to cut those out.
Here is a quick video tutorial showing how I put these cuties together:
- Card Base: 6″ x 3″ scored at 3″ on the 6″ side
- Basic Black Layer: 3″ x 3″
- Whisper White Layer: 2-1/4″ 2-1/4″
- Whisper White Tag: 1-1/2″ x 3/8″
- Whisper White Inside Layer: 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″
