ICS Blog Hop 2022 - 2024 In Colors

Welcome to the June 2022 Inspire Create Share Blog Hop. This month's theme is "Meet the New In Colors". Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky, and Orchid Oasis - such fabulous names for such fabulous colors. They're bright. They're cheerful. They make me happy. They work so well together but also combine well with many of our other Stampin' Up! colors. All of the 2022 - 2024 In Color projects created for this month's blog hop are intended to inspire you and help you get your stamping and crafting on. So get started and enjoy our Meet the New In Colors blog hop.

6a01b8d1640c2c970c026bdee744bc200c-500wi

For this blog hop post, I chose to use all 5 new In Colors on 1 card. I think they're fun, festive colors so decided I'd create a birthday card. Then as I was creating, I thought, "why not turn it into a gift card holder", something I always need. I hope you enjoy my gift card holder featuring the 2022 - 2024 In Colors and will give it a try. It's really quite quick and easy and is just as much fun to make as it will be to give to someone special.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the May 2022 Celebrating In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit. The kit includes contents to make 10 cards, 10 gift card holders, or a combination of both cards and gift card holders. I'm excited as I always need gift card holders. Or you can use the contents of your kit and your own imagination and creativity to come up with some unique, one-of-a-kind projects. No matter what you create, I have a feeling you'll have lots of fun with this latest Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Here are my alternate cards. For this PPP blog post, I challenged myself to make 2 different cards using "throw away" pieces as stencils. It took some thinking "outside of the box" to create these, but I'm happy with the results. 

Stampin' Up! May 2022 Celebrating In Color PP Kit - Mary Knabe

The photos below show how I made each of my cards.
IMG_7125 (1)

The Stamparatus was very useful in holding my stencil and card stock in place while I applied the In Color ink to each of the 5 spaces using Sponge Daubers.
IMG_7125 (1)

I then used the Stamparatus to stamp the large sentiment.

I cut the inked & stamped card stock to 3 1/4" x 4 1/2". Basic White layer measures 3 3/8" x 4 5/8". Basic Black layer is 4" x 5 1/4". Basic White Thick card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4" on long side.

 

I used the piece left over from punching out the large banner die cut as my stencil for the next card.

After applying the ink, I removed the stencil, then cut along the straight lines of the large banner and adhered it to Basic White card stock measuring 5 3/8" x 4 1/8". Basic Black card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4" on long side.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the March 2022 Beyond the Horizon Paper Pumpkin Kit.

I know many people are still waiting for their March Kit due to a shipping issue. I was fortunate and surprised to have received my so am sharing a few alternate cards for you here. This one stumped me a bit as all of the card bases are so beautiful, I hated to cover them up. After playing with kit contents for a bit, I found a way to embellish the card bases with sentiments and die cuts without covering up too much of each of the beautiful card fronts. I hope you like them as much as I do.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the Paper Pumpkin January 2022 Kit Kisses & Hugs.

I chose to make a Valentine collage with my Kisses & Hugs Kit. This project is easy to make and can be framed for hanging or to give as a gift or use it in a scrapbook. No matter what you choose, it'll be a special keepsake for yourself or a loved one.

Stampin'  Up! January 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Kisses & Hugs - Mary Knabe

All the hearts used and their decorations are from the contents of my kit. I added layers of Vellum card stock (8 1/2" x 8 1/2"), Gray Granite card stock (9" x 9"), Gold Foil (9 1/4" x 9 1/4"), and Blushing Bride (12" x 12"). I love the look of this collage - simple but elegant and fun and festive.

Stampin' Up! Driving By Stamp  Set and Sunshine  & Rainbows  - Mary Knabe

I had fun using the Paper Piecing Technique for the vehicles in the Drive By Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. I stamped each of the vehicles in Black Momento Ink on Basic White card stock. I then colored the wheels, "chrome", and windows with Stampin' Blends. Next I stamped the vehicles again in Black Momento Ink but this time on various sheets of the Sunshine & Rainbows 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, also from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. I then used Paper Snips to cut out the body of each vehicle and adhered them to the vehicles stamped on the white card stock. Lastly, I cut out each completed vehicle and adhered them to the card.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Lots of Pun

Welcome to the December 2021 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. It's always fun to create alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin kit each month, then join in the blog hop to share these projects with all of you.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the Paper Pumpkin Lots of Pun Kit and its contents to make funny cards to give.

I decided to make 3" x 3" cards using the contents of my Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love how they turned out and look forward to using them as gift enclosure cards with various gifts and "pick me ups" for others are needed. Please note that ALL of these 3" x 3" cards were made with leftovers after I made the 9 cards as shown in the kit. I just added some card stock of my own for the card bases and layers of the 3" x 3" cards.
