Stampin Friends Blog Hop - Dream In In Colours

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop for June! 

This month's theme is 'Dream In In Colors' - everyone is sharing projects using the newest Stampin' Up! In Colors. This year's colours are just gorgeous. I love them all and they are my favourite ones in quite a while :o)

If you are following along with the Hop, you may have arrived from Melissa's Blog. 

Be sure to read through my post, comment below and then continue on to Jean's Blog. 

If you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of all the participants at the end of each of their Blog Posts.

Here are my projects for this month's Hop ...

I created a Gift Bag and coordinating card.

I used the Free As A Bird stamp set together with some of our latest In Colour Designer Series Paper and Shimmer Vellum.

You have seen this Gift Bag before only in a smaller size. You can find the details and Video for it HERE. This one measures 6" wide, 7" tall and 2" deep - so I increased the width and height this time. 

If you are interested in creating one you will find the measurements needed below but check out the Video for the method :o)

I love all our new In Colours this time and for this project used Polished Pink and Evening Evergreen.

The Shimmer Vellum comes in all the new In Colours and is beautiful. I embossed it with the Stitched Greenery die and then coloured all the leaves on the reverse using the Dark Evening Evergreen Blends marker. The bottom edge was cut using one of the Basic Borders dies.

I added a few of the In Color Jewels to finish off the card and the Gift Bag.

This is the first card I created. I used Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent for this one.

Here is the Video ...



Note: If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow the metric measurements (cms).

If you use 8½” x 11” as your standard sheet of card – follow the imperial measurements (inches).

Lovely project and card--as always!!! I just ordered some of the In Color veluum yesterday! I really like that scallop closure on the gift bag. Is that cut with the Color and Contour dies?
