Your Creative Connection #108: Love is in the Air

600 pixels

Hello lovely crafters from around the world. Welcome back to another Your Creative Connection Global Showcase. Today's theme was chosen by Barbara Meyer and is 'Love Is in the Air'. I love being a part of this showcase with these amazingly talented global demonstrators!

I've chosen the Silhouette Scenes stamp set, and one of the new 2020-22 Stampin' Up! In Colours for my card today.

When I first started playing with Cinnamon Cider, the new 2020 In Colour I have used as my base card today, I really struggled. Now I totally LOVE the colour. It's such a great warm neutral and coordinates well with many colours. Here's today's colour combination.

I have used the Detailed Hearts Die in two ways to create the extra elements on my card. I embossed the Early Espresso cardstock strip using the die, and then I cut the die from Purple Posy cardstock to give me lots the little hearts (plus the base section and lots of leftovers for another project).

Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Monthly Stampin' Up! Showcase: Sketch Challenge

AWHT Showcase Logo Rectangle

It's time to get creative with the Art With Heart team girls on our monthly creative showcase. This month we are working with a sketch challenge designed by our lovely showcase coordinator Rachel Woollard. I'm looking forward to seeing how the Art With Heart team girls interpret this sketch.

Team sketch challenge

I'm using some new catalogue products (coming on 3rd June) for my card today. I have used the Tasteful Touches bundle and In Good Taste Designer Series Paper from the In Good Taste suite. This is such a gorgeous suite of products full of texture, and with a warm colour scheme which can be adjusted for feminine or masculine themed creations.

To create additional texture on my card (I LOVE texture!) I have embossed the front of my card (after I adhered the patterned paper) with the Old World Paper embossing folder which is an amazing new 3D folder coming on June 3rd as well. I also popped some Braided Linen Trim behind the circle. My flower is watercoloured using Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry.

I would definitely consider checking out the In Good Taste suite when you receive your NEW 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. If you don't have an existing demonstrator you do regular business with, myself or any of the team in today's showcase would be happy to get one to you. Just reach out and ask.

The next demonstrator to share her interpretation of the sketch is the lovely Kate Morgan.

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Misty Moonlight

Hello friends. Today I am introducing the last of the 5 new 2020 Stampin' Up! InColours. Each year Stampin' Up! introduces 5 colours that are around for 2 years. Today I am introducing the last (alphabetically) of the new 2020 colours, Misty Moonlight.

Misty Moonight is a mid strength blue with grey undertones. At first I thought it was a little like Dapper Denim that we had a few years ago, but side by side it is less intense and more of a grey-blue. Here is a colour comparison New 2020 In Colour Misty Moonlight Stampin' Up!

Here is how it looks next to the retired colour of Dapper Denim.

Misty Moonlight vs Dapper Demim Stampin' Up!

My card today is a super simple card showing Misty Moonlight with two of the other new 2020 Stampin' Up! InColours, Bumble Bee and Magenta Madness. I have used the 6x6" In Colour paper stack for the 1st DSP layer and the Magenta Madness strip.

For my greeting I die cut one of the stitched ovals from Stitched Shapes dies. As we don't have the ink pads yet, I have stamped the 'birthday' from Well Said stamp set in Night of Navy, and added a 'happy' which I diecut in Bumblebee from the Word Wishes dies. I think these three colours work well together.

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Magenta Madness

Hello friends. Are you ready for another new 2020 Stampin' Up! In Colour? You had better put your sunnies on for this one.

Magenta Madness is a bright clear blue based pink, ready to brighten up all your papercraft projects. Side by side, I find it lighter and brighter than Melon Mambo. It's a fun colour!

New 2020 In Colout Magenta Madness Stampin UpFor my Magenta Madness card, I chose one of the Flowers for All Seasons Memories and More Cards and Envelopes card bases, and added one of the floral 3x4" cards. I love how the dotted frame on the card base is a feature already printed on the cards.

I thought Magenta Madness looked good with Bumblebee, so I added a thin mat of Bumble Bee around the 3x4" card and also as a label beneath my greeting (this label is from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and I use these a lot!). The twine from the Flowers for All Seasons ribbon combo pack picks up the Misty Moonlight in the 3x4" card. I have also cut and layered a couple of flowers using the Small Bloom punch (a carryover from Saleabration which is in the new catalogue).

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Just Jade

Hello crafty people. It's time to introduce our 3rd new colour of the 2020-22 Stampin' Up! In Colours. Today we are looking at what I think is my early favourite, Just Jade!

This is a beautiful bright and happy mid-strength green with a blue undertone. It tones beautifully with Mint Macaron and Coastal Cabana, and also with the darker colour of Shaded Spruce.

Stampin' Up! Just Jade 2020 In Colour

For today's Just Jade card, I have used two of the Just Jade designs in the 2020-22 In Colour 6x6" paperstack. There are four different patterns. I showed one yesterday, and today's card shows two more of the designs.

Just Jade  2020 Stampin' Up! InColour. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used one of the new Tasteful Labels dies on this card, which has the word 'Happy' from Well Said stamp set, stamped in Night of Navy. I have also used one of the cardstock word stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories and More Card Pack. The floral cardstock sticker if from there too. I have also added some of the Misty Moonlight silver twine from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo pack underneath the label.
