They Will Go Fast

So here’s the thing – when the color collection retires, all of collection-specific coordinating products retire too!  All the ink pads, makers, pencils, embellies, paper etc.  *sad face emoji*  They will sell out really quickly in April and May when word gets out that they are retiring.  Don’t miss your chance to get Stampin’ Up! goodies in this color collection.  Shop early – click on each card image to shop my online store for all the 2016-2018 In Color products associated with that color.

2016-2018 Stampin’ Up! In Color From The Heart Card Set Tips & Techniques

Watercolored Background Easy Peasy

Stampin' Up! Work of Art Stamp Set contents including 5 stamps resembling brush swashes, 1 hear, 1 circle, 3 sentiments all appearing to have been hand painted.

Truth – water coloring is REALLy hard for me.  Even simple splashy splotches become a waterlogged mess.  Not so with the oh-so-funtastic Work of Art Stamp Set.  Tip:  create different color intensities by occasionally stamping off before stamping on the cardstock.  Stamping off means inking the stamp and then stamping on scrap paper one or more times to remove some ink from the stamp.

Cutie-pie Birdie & Sentiment

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette stamp set contents that includes 8 sentiment stamps in two fonts, 4 flower/leaf stamps, a bird stamp and a dotted background stamp all appearing to have been handpainted in water color paint.

The adorable bird came from the 2018 Occasions Petal Palette stamp set.  LOVE this stamp set.  Isn’t the font on the sentiment (also from the set) adorable?  It looks great with the hand-painted appearance of the birdie.  BTW – Petal Palette is available bundled with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  Save 10% when you buy the Bundle.

Bold Sassy Flowers and Vine

The colors on the card are so rich and vibrant that the stamped images needed to be bold and sassy.  the images in the Falling Flowers stamp set are definitely sassy.  The vine and the flower both come from this set.  The flower was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored using Stampin’ Write Markers including the 2016-2018 In Color marker set.  The flower was die cut using the coordinating May Flowers Thinlits dies.

Inspiring Creativity

The design of this card set was inspired by a Sandi MacIver creation.  She is an amazing lady who has been an inspiration to me for many years.
