Stampin' Addicts New In-Color Hop: Mint Macaron
Who is ready for some fresh colors?! We are!! A bunch of us from Stampin' Addicts have gotten together to showcase the new In Colors that will be available to purchase on June 2, 2015.
I am stop #3 on this hop, and the only one to feature Mint Macaron. But I bet you see lots of this color in the other stops as well :) We have a thread for chatting and with the master blog roll list, go check it out!
If you are following along in order, then you just came from Holly Krautkremer's blog where she showed us Delightful Dijon. Love her mad skills with layering, right!
LeeAnn Greff's how-to video for this fun gift card holding card! I love how classy these colors look together, and that lace is so luscious, soft, and flexible! You are going to be finding all kinds of ways to sneak more of this lace into your projects ;)
Teneale Williams, probably what made me want to do tags, lol! Then I thought about those lovely little picks from Handpicked framelits, but wait. From the Garden is going away with the Occasions Mini, and I can't get the sets that coordinate with the picks from the new catty until June 2nd. So I looked through my stamps, and guess what?! There are a BUNCH of sentiments that fit on these little picks!! I used just 3 sets here, but I had a stack of 7 sets with sentiments that fit in the picks, just on a quick look through my stash. Can't wait to start making more use of that discovery :) And i think these colors play quite nicely together also (as long as you don't let your watercoloring get too muddy like on the 2nd part of the birthday sentiment...) I used Calypso Coral and So Saffron with the Mint Macaron here.
I think this card is my favorite, it has feathers, and ombre, and burlap, and Crumb Cake. Blues and greens too! Talk about a pile of my favorite things, lol! There are 2 color combos in the feathers here. On the left side of the card, it is Mint Macaron, Wild Wasabi, and Garden Green. On the right side of the card, it is Mint Macaron, Pool Party, and Lost Lagoon. I love the look of both combos, and they both look great on the card together! I had not played with this stamp set yet, and I needed to use it while it is still available. It is not retiring yet, but it was one of the monthly photopolymer releases this winter and is only guaranteed in stock for 6 months from the release date.
To see the supplies I used for these projects, scroll to the bottom of this post.
Now it's time to go check out the marvelous Heidi Bak's blog and her creations with Tip Top Taupe!
