Colour Creations - Cinnamon Cider

Welcome back to Week 10 of Colour Creations Showcase!

8E4D5EDB-A8A1-4FEC-89D5-9A5053657FC3

This week the talented crafters are exploring everything warm and delicious with Cinnamon Cider, one of our new 2020-2022 In Colors.

I was amazed how many of our packs of Designer Series Papers include Cinnamon Cider in their designs - it’s clearly a really versatile colour.

This week, I could not go past the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set again. With Melbourne going into Stage 4 lockdown, I have SO many more “No Place like Gnome” cards to make!

I don’t have the Cinnamon Cider Blends or ink pad, but I found the Bronze and Ivory Blends worked beautifully as a substitute, and on one card I have used Daffodil Delight for a cheerful, uplifting pop of colour, and on the other I have used Mint Macaron as a soft, gentle alternative.

How is this sweet girl gnome on the Cinnamon Cider Memories and More Card, with a layer of Cinnamon Cider stripes from the Flower For Every Season Designer Series Paper pack?

The matching envelopes add a very nice touch!

This cheerful guy is on a Whisper White card base with a different design of paper from the Flowers For Every Season pack for the layer on the bottom half of the card front. Did you realise that the sunflower centres are also Cinnamon Cider?

How welcoming is that Daffodil Delight door? I bet it’s warm and cozy in there!

A little added touch to each card is the door knob for which I used one of our gorgeous new shiny gold gems. So pretty!

Thanks for stopping by to visit my gnomes! They hope you are staying safe and well!

To see the rest of the gorgeous Cinnamon Cider creations, please pop over to Cathy’s blog.

Take care, and see you soon with ink on your fingers ( hopefully soon!!).

Hugs,

Share Sunshine!

This week in Melbourne we are expecting abysmal weather, real winter stuff, all week! It's a bit hard to take after the glorious spring like day we had yesterday, and our move into Stage 4 lockdown overnight . . .  Oh well! Let's run with it!! 

Straight to the craft room with a rug around our knees!

I want to share this gorgeous cheerful product that is coming up on the 11th August. 

The Box of Sunshine card kit is from Paper Pumpkin. In North America it is a monthly subscription kit, but here in Australia we have only ever had one limited release before (The So Shelli kit last year).

Box of Sunshine image

This is a lovely cheery sunshiney kit to lift us all out of the Covid/Winter doldrums and the great thing is, it was truly designed to help us SHARE SUNSHINE to our loved ones near and far.

Here is the video of Stampin' Up! CEO Sara Douglas sharing the contents of the kit.  VIDEO

I know I am going to enjoy making boxes of sunshine to send to people I love! I hope you will embrace this concept too and get prepared to share some sunshine when this kit becomes available to order on August 11th.

 

Talk soon,

Kathryn
