Hello Honey In Color Sample Card

Hi Stampers!

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!

In Color Club Bookmark for 2014

Hi Stampers!

Every year when my customers sign up for In Color Club, I always make a special bookmark for them which features the 5 new In Colors for that year.  This year was no exception!  In addition to getting to play with the new In Colors, I also had some fun creating a cute little tassel with the brand new thick Baker's Twine.  This new baker's twin is awesome.  You are going to love using it all on kinds of projects.

To create the tassel I used one length of baker's twine and I kept folding it in half until I had several loops.  Then I put one end through the hole at the top of the bookmark and tied them in a bundle with another piece of bakers twine.  Finally, I cut all of the loops so that I had lots of loose ends!

Crisp Cantaloupe In Color Club Sample

Hi Stampers!

Today is my last post for the 2013-2015 In Color Club!  So sad that it's over, but excited that in just a few days I'll be starting the 2014-2016 In Color Club!  In Color Club is my product share program.  It's an affordable way to get a little bit of each type of product in every In Color for the year.  You get an assortment of cardstock, ink, and embellishments, plus as a thank you, I include a sample using that month's color with your package.  It's a lot of fun!

The final sample is showcasing Crisp Cantaoupe.  It's such a bright, fun, peachy color!  I love the In Color Ruffle stretch trim.  It's so much fun for creating frilly, pretty borders on panels.  Too bad it's been retired - but fear not - you will be getting some brand new 2013-2014 In Color embellishments to make up for it!  :-)
