Today I have a fun card to share with you! Every year when the new In Colors are released, I run an In Color Club for my customers. One of the perks of being in In Color Club is that I create a hand stamped card, featuring that month's color, and include it with their In Color stamping supplies. It's my little thank you to my customers and I always hope that they gain inspiration from my cards.
For July the color was Hello Honey. I always have mixed feelings about yellows. I had the same reaction two years ago when we had Summer Starfruit as an In Color. My gut reaction is "how am I going to use this color?" Then I start to pair it up with other colors and stamps and I really start to see how beautiful the color can be! After two years of becoming more and more obsessed with Summer Starfruit, it was retired and I was so sad. Now I'm having the same feelings about Hello Honey! I'm slowly but surely warming up to this warm, golden shade of yellow that looks amazing paired with purples and greens.
Here is the card that I made for my customers.
I love how the Whisper White ribbon really pops against the Hello Honey background.
Aren't coordinating stamps and punches a wonderful thing? It's so easy to get a perfect cut out of the stamped sentiment! I also love how the embossed arrows are pointing in the same direction as the diagonal lines in the paper. They coordinate but are not "matchy-matchy".
I made a ton of these cards! I used different pieces of paper from the Moonlight paper stack. It's one of my favorite products from the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog! It was fun picking a paper pattern and then choosing a coordinating embossing folder. Other embossing folders I used were the Honeycomb and the Decorative Dots folders. Here are the first three:
And three more!
