I received my pre-order for the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 annual catalogue today. I am really excited about the new in-colour collection, Lemon-lime Twist, Powder Pink, Fresh Fig, Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide! I wanted to showcase them in a set of cards, but the Designer Series Paper that featured them wasn’t thrilling me. I spent some time playing with various concepts. I new I wanted to do monochromatic cards which used the in-colour ribbon and bitty bows in addition to the ink and cardstock, but wasn’t sure how I could incorporate the paper in a way I loved. I figured it out though and now I am sure I will be able to create other cards I love using the new Fresh Florals DSP. Here are the cards I created today. You can purchase the supplies needed for these cards starting June 1st!
