2020-22 In Color Pinata-Style Birthday Card

by Joanne James30. June 2020 12:06

Today I'm sharing another card for the current challenge over at Fab Friday to use some/all of Stampin' Up!'s new in-colors, as I finally got over my 'use all 5 colours' mental block when I saw the current inspiration over at Time Out:


I saw that frilly cake and cute pinata cake topper and realised that frills would be a great way to use all five colours so I grabbed my fringe scissors and set about creating a rainbow of in-colors just like the frills on that fabulous cake - take a look:


I paired my frills with a simple birthday sentiment, a sprinkling of in-color enamel dots and a co-ordinating Magenta Madness ribbon and bow to complete my quick and colourful birthday card.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

One final reminder that today is the last day you can take advantage of additional hostess rewards on orders over £200 or this month's great joining offer - if you need a reminder you can find the full details here

That's all from me today - lots to do! Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Oh. My. Gosh....you've done it again!  This is sooooooo cute!  I never got those fringe scissors, but looking at your little frills makes me wish I had!  PERFECT for the challenges...I predict a winner!

Love how you combined these two challenges. The 'pinata' fringe is perfectly done and I'm so jealous of your bow tying skills. Really like too how you left some white space at the top of your card, really makes those colours pop. So very glad you joined us at TIME OUT!
