A Little Something For You…

Hello and welcome to the July edition of the Stamptastic Friends Blog Hop! This month our theme is the new 2020-2022 In Colours. The latest set of Stampin’ Up! In Colours consists of Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, Magenta Madness and Bumblebee. Which is your favourite so far? I think mine if Misty Moonlight at the moment.

Stampin' Up! New In Colours 2020-2022

For today’s project I decided to use products from the upcoming August – December Mini Catalogue! I used the Warm Hugs Bundle and Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set and I hope to show you that very few stamp sets are just for Christmas!

Don’t forget to carry on hopping once you have read my blog post, the list of participants can be found towards the end of this post.

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a piece of the 2020-2022 In Colour Designer Series Paper (DSP) measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. The main card front is a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 8 x 12.4 cm.

Before adhering the card front to the card base I have stapled two lengths of In Colour Ribbon to the top left hand corner. This is one of my favourite ways of incorporating two different ribbons into a project.

The sentiment (from the Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set) is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the circle die (from the Warm Wraps Die Set). This is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The mug outline and in-fill is stamped in each of the In Colours onto Whisper White cardstock. These are cut out using the coordinating die and adhered to the sentiment piece and the card front as shown.

What do you think to my A Little Something For You Card?

I hope you like my ‘A Little Something For You’ card. I adore the new In Colours and I really like using ‘Christmas’ Stamp Sets for non-Christmas projects – us crafters love getting our money’s worth! This card would be great if you were giving tea / coffee / hot chocolate themed gifts.

  1. Love your In Colour project Helen and I really should try to use seasonal sets for other occasions more too. Such a clever way to show how a Christmas set can be used all year round !
