Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - 2020-2022 In Colors

Hi crafters,

We've made it to the first Friday of another month and that can mean only one thing - a Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop.  Our theme this month is projects featuring the 2020-2022 In Colors.  If you've hopped from Kimberley Anne's post, you are on the right track.  There is a full list of blog hop participants at the end of this post.  

The 2020-2022 In Colors are Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight.  If I was a colour I would definitely be Magenta Madness!  That colour alone makes my heart happy!

I set myself a mini challenge with this theme to make multiple cards.  I actually made over 20 but that might just be too many for one post!  I have six cards to share today and they use the products shown below.  

Tasteful Touches Stamp Set

Forever Fern Stamp Set

Best Year Stamp Set

I used Stampin' Up! Note Cards and Envelopes paired with the backgrounds from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  Each card also features one of the Tasteful Labels dies for the sentiments.  

For this first card I adhered the gold foil background directly to the note card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Bumblebee onto one of the Tasteful Labels dies.  I added tails using the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper and another of the Tasteful Labels Dies.  I cut two of the banners and cut them in half to layer up between four layers of the Whisper White cardstock labels.  I finished this card by adding some Bumblebee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.  

My second card showcases Cinnamon Cider along with a sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set.  This was very simply to put together with some of the DSP layered behind the gold foil background.  

I added a stripe of Magenta Madness DSP behind the sentiment for my next card and layered the label up using additional cardstock pieces.  I also ran the Magenta Madness Stampin' Write Marker along the edge of the sentiment label to make it stand out against the background.  I just love that pop of pink!

These are actually my favourite cards of the bunch and they make a great pair in Misty Moonlight.  The card on the left was simply layered using the gold foil die cut, In Color DSP and a sentiment label.  I added some In Color Enamel Dots too.  The card on the right has a full covering of the In Color DSP behind the gold foil background panel.  I added a small heart using the Stitched Be Mine Dies and covered this with Shimmery Crystal Effects.  

Lastly, the most simple of the cards and this one features Just Jade.  Once I had adhered the gold foil background panel, I stamped directly onto the Note Card using my Stamparatus and then added some of the In Color Enamel Dots to finish.  

I hope these cards have inspired you with the 2020-2022 In Colors.  To keep hopping, just click the next button below to head to Jenn's post.
