cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!, Techniques


Ok, maybe this is a bit of a loose title but hey sometimes it’s hard to be creative with blogging. 🙂

I have been playing with the new 2019 Incolors lately.  I will say when I first saw them I was a bit blah! BUT now I have been playing with them a bit I am really warming to them.  I will talk to you more about them in a later post but I thought we would start with this card today.  I wanted to use all the Incolors together.

I thought this reminded me of a sunset over the ocean.  That’s what it is like where I live anyway.  We have Pretty Peacock at the bottom for the grass under the lighthouse, Seaside Spray for the water, Purple Posy as the sky is changing, a little more pink with Rococo Rose and the orange with the Terracotta Tile.  Can you see it now??

Here is my inspiration.  This is our local lighthouse in Wollongong.  The sky wasn’t that orange this night unfortunately but it can get quite intense.  You just have to imagine it.

To create the card I cut equal strips of the Incolors then adhered them to a piece of Whisper White card.  This was a lot easier to line them up.  Also since I was embossing it with the Subtle Embossing Folder it made it easier to run through the machine.

I used the new Sail Away stamp set which is a really cool one. Watch out for more with this.

Stay tuned for more creating with the Incolors too.  Have a great day,
