Expression - In Color Palette





Hello! This is a simple card to showcase the new 2016-2018 In colors in a vibrant and expressive way. The initial inspiration came from this week's Global Design Project #36 - Case the Designer: Paula Dobson. I'm so excited to be Case'ing Paula's card below as she is so talented and highly creative. I have actually made two cards from my excitement. :)  Click here to see the other card. That card is more floral inspired. For more inspirations click on the header below to see the creative projects at the Global Design Project. :)



This was a quick and simple card using the Bold Butterfly framelit die and the new stamp set from the new catalogue Painter's Palette and the Thoughtful Banners punch. I have used the new 2016-2018 In Colors in a rainbow effect using the brush stroke and splatter images from Painter's Palette, in a symmetrical fashion reflecting the butterfly wings.

The banner is created using the coordinating banner punch from the Thoughtful banners bundle, and I have white heat embossed part of the sentiment to just have "Expression". The butterfly die cut and banner has been mounted on white fun foam for an even raise.





I hope you enjoyed this card project. The new In colors are just fabulous and so vibrant. These new products will be available in June. If you join Stampin' Up! now you can include this as part your starter kit.

  3. What a fun idea for the new colors! I remember one of the presenters at Onstage (here in US) said they don't play well together but I think they look great! And a question... is your first name Juan or Juana? :-)

    1. Thank you Julie - it's greatly appreciated. How shocking, she was clearly mistaken lol. They do look great together! It's Juan but Juana is my preference and has become a nickname, it joins onto my surname if you add the A, so works both ways. :)

    2. Thanks for the clarification on your name! :-) I have people write my name as Julia all the time and I think they see my first name but then pick up the "a" from the end of my last name and put the two together.

    3. You're welcome Julie. Oh really, it sounds like they could be dyslexic lol or not paying close attention to detail hehe. :)
