The Color Coach is a tool that gives you assistance in combining colours. It has 2 options of colours that work well together for every colour in the Stampin Up Colour families and includes if the colour you have chosen has another colour that with it creates a dynamic duo (perfect for two step stamping). Blackberry bliss 's duo colour is perfect plum Heres what it recommends for Blackberry Bliss The first colour combo is blackberry bliss, old olive and soft sky. Screen card using this combo - I stamped off the blackberry bliss butterflies as they were just too deep in colour and didn't look right. I also chose to stamp off the old olive but didn't stamp off with the soft sky. A few tiny pearls on each of the larger butterflies was all that was needed to finish it The next recommended combo was smokey slate, blackberry bliss and melon mambo. Now I definitely don't like this combo at all but I did manage to do a card with it. Why I didn't like it is I am not a melon mam…
As a demo we get to order about a month or so before the new catalogue comes out. As I had attended a Stampin' Up event in Auckland in April I was able to order some of the new goodies super early!
One of the cards we made at the SU On Stage event was using the new daisy punch and stamp set, so I thought I would CASE (copy and share everything) using the new in colours.
I used the same design on all the cards but the finished result is quite different depending on the cards base you use. It was super easy and quick to make them all and I now have 10 cards ready to be posted out/given out when needed.
The new in colours are:
Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide and will be available for purchasing on 1 June 2017.
I have two adorable little girls aged 6 and 8 who come to visit with their Mum and Dad and we recently leant the youngest a bed roll for camp. She came in with her family on Friday and had made us the most gorgeous card to day thank you for lending her the bed roll. So I thought I might make each of the girls a card and pop round with some Easter goodies for them at Easter time. They are both a credit to their parents as they are always well behaved and polite and make a bee line to the pet shop toys in the corner of the lounge, they never have to be told to clean up when its time to go and never moan when its time to leave. We love having them to visit and hopefully they will love their cards. Sadly they are moving soon overseas but I think they may get a care package or two when they move. Who doesn't love getting a package in the mail.
