A Sneak Peek of Painter’s Palette

Stampin Up Painters Palette Love Card & Envelope - Mary Fish StampinUp

I adore the modern look of this black and white (with a pop of red) love card using the new Painter’s Palette stamp set.  Products listed as new on today’s post will be available for purchase on June 1 when the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog begins!

I LOVE HEARING FROM YOU!  If you have any questions or comments about today’s card, please share HERE.  I’ll have a 1 Minute to WOW! video tutorial for you with tips on creating this card tomorrow!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • The easel from the new Painter’s Palette stamp set is designed to work with the new Layering Squares Framelits Dies (19 sizes, including scallop edge layering squares).

  • I stamped and cropped the center of the easel.  The top layer is popped up on Stampin Dimensionals.  This frames the sentiment (love the font) and heart below.
  • The pop of red was provided by one of the small hearts from the new Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies.

  • For a pretty polish, I added a cool black and white pattern from the new Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.  Watch my video here for tips.

Pop of Paradise Hello Card

Stampin Up Pop of Paradise Hello Card - Mary Fish StampinUp

There’s no shortage of trendy and fun products in the new Stampin’ Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, including the Pop of Paradise stamp set used on today’s card for the flamingo and sentiment.  Products designated as new on today’s post will be available for purchase on June 1, when the Stampin’ Up!

Pals Paper Arts Challenge PPA302

My inspiration for the design on today’s card is from this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA302), a intriguing design by Nicole Watt.  See what the rest of the PPA Design Team created with this sketch and play along here.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • What could be more appropriate for this flamingo and card than using the new Stampin’ Up! In Color Flirty Flamingo.  I used Flirty Flamingo card stock, ink and the gorgeous new ruched ribbon.  See all the 2016-2018 In Colors and a color comparison here.

  • I cropped the flamingo with Paper Snips and popped it up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Snips are ideal for navigating the curves.

  • Nifty.  The “hello” sentiment was cropped with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch.

  • Quick and easy.  A Stampin’ Up! Medium Crumb Cake envelope is a perfect match!
