Good evening and welcome to the May Blog Hop by NC Demos. For this month's blog hop we will be focusing on new products in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog but with a twist! Our project will feature at least one new product from the new catalog and some "old" products that carried over to the 2021-2022 catalog. So these two - old and new - will work together just like a team! My "old" product is the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and my "new" items are the In Colors Stampin' Blends, the sentiments on my two cards and the Artistry Blooms Sequins.
I decided to use the spotlight technique with the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set. I used my Stamparatus to easily stamp the image and sentiment in Memento black ink. Then I colored them with my Stampin' Blends Markers. I love the pop of color the new In Colors gave these cards.
The center panel is 2 5/8" x 4". Double check to be sure your sentiment fits! The Basic Black mat is 1/4" larger on each side of the center panel. To keep the layers together while stamping, I put a small amount of adhesive on the back of the small layer and then pressed it a few times against my clothes to take some of the stickiness off. (Another option is to gently use your Embossing Buddy on the adhesive.)
The sentiment "thanks" comes from Artistically Inked stamp set and "you are amazing" is from Color & Contour stamp set.
I just love these new In Colors and keep changing my mind on my favorite. But, I'm pretty sure my fav is Polished Pink! What about you?
