Fresh

Here’s a sneak peek of one of the new sets that will be available in Stampin’ Up!’s new idea book and catalogue.
I love this set and it inspired me to branch out in some new directions with my colour choices. I’ve never really been brave enough to use Summer Sun (from the Earth Elements family) but how gorgeous does it look with the new In Colour – Kiwi Kiss !!??
I am getting to know and love all my new In Colours (I’ve now  received all my Sneak Peek goodies!!) and I would describe Kiwi Kiss as a paler, fresher shade of Old Olive (I’ve used old olive Grosgrain here to co-ordinate with the new card stock).
I’ve used a special reverse masking technique here and torn out the centre of a spare piece of Stampin’ Up! scratch paper like so:

Next I used the torn out piece to cover over or “mask” my stamped images, and stamped the larger background stamp from the fresh cuts set over the top, peeled off the mask and the background appears behind the images in the middle.
Stamps : Fresh Cuts  (from the new Catalogue)

  1. oh dear Ness.
    You are not going to believe this but i made a card last night with the exact same colours and stamp set.
    scarey.

  2. Hi Ness,
    Don’t you just love that stamp. Your card inspired me to play a bit today, and I actually brought out the Pastels. Haven’t used those for a long time – as you know I prefer watercolours, but I quite like what happened. I got so carried away with the serendipity approach that I used old colours – bummer. Will have to try again. I’ll load them up tonight if you want to have a look
    Can’t wait for convention
    Ann
