Colour Creations Week 6 - Blushing Bride

Hello and welcome everyone.

It's Week 6 of the Colour Creations Blog Hop from the Art with Heart team.
Tonight we are shining the spotlight on Blushing Bride from the Subtles Collection of Stampin' Up! colours.

I was so excited to receive my demonstrator pre-order from the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalogue.

So excited, that I had to start using the products I'd ordered straight away! The good news is that tonight you'll see a sneak peek at one of the gorgeous new Specialty Designer Series Paper packs called, Whimsy & Wonder.

And without further ado, here is my card.

I've made a vertical standing Book Binding card.
I have been wanting to make this type of card fold for a while, and when I saw this gorgeous pattern from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP pack I knew it was time. I have a feeling that you will fall in love with this 12" x 12" paper pack just as I have done.

If you love non-traditional Christmas colours, then this is definitely the pack for you!
There is Blushing Bride, Polished Pink, Mossy Meadow, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight, Iridescent and Basic White. I cannot wait to create more projects with the beautiful patterns.

I have heat embossed the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in white embossing powder onto a Stitched Rectangle of Blushing Bride. I've popped it up with dimensionals.

Inside the card I added a narrow strip of the DSP onto a slightly wider strip of Blushing Bride card stock.

The DSP pattern does all the talking on this card so apart from the sentiment it just needed a tiny bit of bling. I used a combination of opal rounds and basic rhinestones.

Here's another sneak peek. The Blushing Bride 3/8" Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon. That's some title and let me tell you, it is gorgeous! It's part of the Whimsy & Wonder Suite.
I cut a length to wrap around the card and added it using Tear & Tape adhesive. The bow is separate and attached with a glue dot over the join in the ribbon. I wanted a touch of the silver Simply Elegant Trim to pick up the iridescent detail in the paper pattern.

I've used the word gorgeous a lot in this post and that's because there is so much gorgeous-ness about the Specialty DSP and the ribbon. I can't wait for you to see the Whimsy & Wonder Suite in its entirety! It won't be long now.

Because the July-December 2021 Mini Catalogue doesn't go LIVE to customers until August 3rd, I can only link to current products in my online store below.
If you have any questions about this card or anything else related to Stampin' Up! please don't hesitate to get in touch.

That's it from me tonight everyone, thanks for stopping by.
