Positive Inkers Blog Hop - August 2023

Hello Stamping Friends! I’m thrilled to join the fabulous Positive Inkers Design Team for our August 2023 Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the globe who are super-excited to share our love of creativity. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 

If this is the fist time you are visiting, please let me introduce myself. My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in San Antonio, Texas. Welcome!
Our theme for this month is: 2023-2025 In Colors

The new 2023-2025 In Colors from Stampin’ Up!® are gorgeous! They are a little more on the rich and earthy side, which I will admit, I wasn’t so sure of when I first saw them. But the more I have had a chance to play with them, the more they have grown on me. Well, all but one (I’m talking about you, Wild Wheat) so it was important for me to try to use it in some part on my project for the hop. I managed to use 4 of the 5 new In Colors on my card today. I actually left out my favorite color, Boho Blue, and I’m not sure how that happened. Sometimes you just have to go where the creative inspiration takes you, right?  

*I’ve listed details for my projects below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
Color Combo: 
For my project today, I decided to use the Darling Details stamp set and coordinating dies. I’m a little obsessed with this set lately. I just love all of the fun, whimsical flowers along with the leaves and foliage that coordinate. There are some wonderful scalloped frames and borders in the dies, too which really add to the versatility of the set. 

I decided to add one of those frames as the focal point for my card and dress it up with some fab floral detail. I just love how the flowers and leaves layer together so nicely. In addition to using 4 of the In Colors for the stamping, I also pieced in some little leaves die-cut from the More Dazzle Specialty Paper. Somebody really needs to slap this paper out of my hands because I can’t stop using it. It’s super sparkly so a little bit goes a long way. I just love popping little bits of it onto my projects for that little something extra. I added a little sentiment to the label die-cut from the Cheerful Daisies Dies along with a textured background using the Basics 3D Embossing Folder. This is just a fun birthday card and I have the perfect person to send it to!  
I hope you enjoyed my project today and that you are inspired to create with your favorite new In Colors, too! Please stop by to visit everyone on the hop and leave us a comment to say hello. We’d all love to hear from you and so appreciate you stopping by. If you are following the hop, my sweet friend Jo Blackman in the UK is your next destination.
