Spotlight Technique featuring Stampin’ Blends # 5

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Continuing my exploration of Stampin Blends techniques I am using them to feature the Spotlight Technique. I am also using this as an opportunity to use one of my FREE Sale-a-bration goodies – Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper, which is available for a $50 product order until the end of September. At the bottom of this post there is a supply list – if you place an order for the Stampin Blends, card, dies, ribbon and In-color Jewels you too, can get this paper for free 🙂

Elegant Multipanel Pop-out, Fancy Fold Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

One of the most stunning set of decorative papers in the 2021 – 2022 Annual Stampin’ UP! catalog is the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper. It has beautiful neutrals which are the backdrop to silver, gold and copper gilding. Rather than using just one of the designs I looked for a fancy fold card where I could display as many of the different designs as possible and that is the card I share today.

I used the other coordinating products for this paper, the Elegantly Said Stamp Set and Elegant Tag Punch. I also chose to use Basic Gray and Gray Granite Card as a background.

Elegant Thank You Card using Emboss Resist Technique

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have made no secret that the Elegantly Said Stamp Set is probably one of my favorite sets from the 2021 -2022 Stampin’ UP! annual catalog, not least because it has the coordinating Elegant Tag punch and for those of you who follow me, know that I do love a punch!

I have paired one of the 2020 -2022 Incolors, Misty Moonlight, with one of the 2021 – 2023 Incolors, Fresh Freesia’ I was musing on my color combination for today’s card they sort of ‘spoke’ to me, so I gave them a try and am really pleased with the result.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

It is just over 3 weeks since the new 2021 -2022 Stampin’ UP! Catalog was launched and the new ‘in-colors’ released. Each year Stampin’ UP! introduces 5 colors that are available to us for 2 years, they are very carefully selected to meet current trends and we get ink, card, paper, ribbon and embellishments to coordinate everything together.

I am really rather taken with this years choices and created today’s card to show all 5 colors, with a little of the ribbon and the in-color jewels, along with the Elegantly Said Stamp Set. I did not use a greeting – let the colors and images do all the work.
