There is a suite of products in the new Annual Catalogue that I know you are absolutely going to LOVE! It’s called the Color Theory Suite, and it not only shows off some beautiful colours, but also the four seasons in a year.
I’ve been getting ready for my New Catalogue Kick-Off Party (if you’re in the area, I’d love to see you! leave me a comment & I’ll get in touch). So of course, I’ve been using products from my demonstrator pre-order to create cards and projects to share. I’m so excited about this new suite that I just can’t wait – I’m going to share one of my cards with you now!
Product in the Color Theory Suite
Have you noticed that I’ve been spelling ‘color’ the ‘american’ way? Yes I do know that I’ve been doing that, and yes, it is killing me! LOL 🙂 As a Canadian, I always change the spelling in the catalogue to ‘our’ way of spelling. It’s recently been pointed out to me that the spelling in the catalogue is the way that Stampin’ Up! has trademarked the name. So, I will do my best, when it refers to a trademarked name, to use the spelling it was given. If I slip up – you’ll forgive me, right?!
The Color Theory Suite is just that – an entire suite of coordinating products. If you’re like me, you’re going to want them all! The suite includes:
- Colorful Season stamp set – 24 photopolymer stamps
- Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies – 17 dies
- Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack – 48 double sided 6″x6″ sheets (Berry Burst, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Dapper Denim and Whisper White featured colours)
- Color Theory Cardstock Pack – 24 sheets of 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets in Berry Burst, Dapper Denim and Old Olive
- 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon – available individually in 3 colours; Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Old Olive; 10 yds ea.
- Glitter Enamel Dots – package of 160 dots
- Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack – 72 cards + embellishments
See what I mean? An amazing assortment of products, and all coordinated to work together! I used the Glitter Enamel Dots in my project in yesterday’s post – check it out.
The picture above shows the Colorful Seasons stamp set and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, which you’ll be able to purchase as the Colorful Seasons Bundle, and save 10%! You should definitely do that, so you can spend your savings on the rest of the suite of products! 😉
Take a Seat
For this card, I chose to use the beach chair image, stamped directly onto a panel of Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack paper in Crushed Curry. I love how each colour strip gives a feeling of the intensity of the sun, as you relax in your chair, cooling beverage in hand. I used Lemon Lime Twist ink to stamp the drink onto Whisper White cardstock – and I didn’t even have to fussy cut it! Thank goodness for thinlits for small pieces.
The chair seat, small flowers and sentiment were stamped in Berry Burst ink directly onto the DSP. For the die cut flowers, I used Berry Burst full strength and stamped off once. Fresh Fig ink was used for the flower stamen. Crumb Cake ink was used for the chair frame, and the branch was die cut using the Big Shot and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, from Crumb Cake cardstock.
In the picture above, you can see the close up of the flowers and branch, which I attached using Glue Dots. I also added the Glitter Enamel Dots in the middle of each large flower.
Lots of Dimension
To add dimension to my card besides panel of DSP, I like mixing die cuts with direct to paper stamping. The Seasonal Layers Thinlits Die make this easy to do!
The Inside Scoop
The sentiments in this set are terrific, too. I added this one to the inside panel:
Wouldn’t this be a great sentiment for a wedding card?
