Welcome to my blog Stamping Flair. I am based in Melbourne, Australia and today I am thrilled to be participating in the New at SU Blog Hop for the first time. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world and this month we are showcasing our beautiful new In-Colours.

I chose the Fancy Phrases bundle which includes the Fancy Phrases stamp set and the Fancy Tag Topper punch to showcase the 5 colours – Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight and Bumble Bee. My card bases were chosen from the Neutrals range to keep a uniformed look.

Cinnamon Cider

I find that Cinnamon Cider can be quite a strong colour so I toned it down by adding it to a Crumb Cake card base. The Cinnamon Cider panel has been stamped with the edge of the large stamp in the Fancy Phrases stamp set to create a border right around. The Very Vanilla panel has been embossed with the Old World embossing folder and sponged in Bumble Bee and Cinnamon Cider to create a soft shading. Accents of gold foil and ribbon work well with the earthy tones of Cinnamon Cider .

Just Jade

This is my favourite of the 5. A Smoky Slate card base with a frame die cut from the Stitched Rectangles dies create a lovely combination against the stamped-off Just Jade flowers. I used the Fancy Tag Topper punch to create the black tag. Being able to turn the punch over and align the centre of the cardstock, makes it easy to create smaller tags than the 5cm which is the actual width of the punch.

Magenta Madness

A simple card layout for my Magenta Madness and Basic Gray card. I have added detail with the Little Details embossing folder, running it through twice to get the border on either side of the cardstock. The Glitter Organdy ribbon adds a bit of sparkle to this ‘Miss You’ card. Now that we are back in lock down, I’ve got someone in mind that I could send this to. Aren’t we just so fortunate to have this hobby which we can use to lift up others. 

Bumble Bee

This is another one of those fairly strong colours which I like to add in muted tones. I started off by adding a piece of the Peony Garden DSP to my Gray Granite card base. Then I stamped a panel of Whisper White cardstock with the Dry Brush stamp and cut 3×1 1½” strips. The border from the Peony dies in Basic Black works well with these colours and creates an elegant edge to the card. I really like this layout at it’s also great for using up cardstock and DSP scraps. 

The outer sentiment does have a second part which I stamped on the inside of the card.

Misty Moonlight

An ombré background from the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper against a Sahara Sand card base was used for my last card. I created a tag from another section of the same DSP and stamped some flowers in Misty Moonlight. Cinnamon Cider adds a nice contrast on this card against all the blues. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed my cards and they inspire to create using our In-Colours. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment.
