Hello To The New In Colours With Around The Bend Dies

by Joanne James15. May 2023 11:30

Happy Monday everyone! Today I'm sharing a card using Judy's layout over at Freshly Made Sketches that is also my card for the current Colour Inkspiration Facebook challenge:

   May be an image of boots, leather and text that says "Copper Clay #143 COLOUR k NKSPIRATION CHALLENGES In Wild 023-2 Wheat ofthe Boho Blue 3 least at Moody Mauve 100 Pebbled Path"

I thought those 5 stripes would be perfect for another card featuring the new 2023-25 In Colours, so take a look at what I came up with:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I wanted to use one of the curvy dies from the Around The Bend Dies for my stripes, so my card ended up being more of a slimline when finished to give me enough height to fit in all of the layers (I hope Judy is OK with that!) I cut the layers in each of the in colours, then layered them so that each colour is visible through the diecut detail of the layer above. A simple 'hello' sentiment and a white card base allows the diecut detail and colours to take centre stage:


I added a single layered diecut daisy from the Dainty Delight Dies to each stripe, finishing with a single large in colour dot for a little extra shine.

So what do you think - do you have a favourite in-colour from this set yet? I do think it's tricky to use all 5 on one card, but I like how this one worked out. I think Boho Blue is m favourite - let me know yours in the comments below!

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

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Wowza!  First, those boots are incredible!  Second, you used the new colors perfectly!  What a vivid way to put them all together, especially with the flowers and their pretty centers!  I predict a winner for sure!
