COLOUR CREATIONS BLOG HOP 2022-2023 WEEK 1
Welcome to a brand new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and a new batch of very beautiful In Colours.
Each year when the new Annual catalogue comes out, 5 colours retire and we get 5 new colours. These are referred to as In Colors and they give our colour palette a lovely refresh, complimenting our regular colour families and adding a beautiful fresh twist.
For Week 1 of the 2022-2023 Colour Creation Showcase, I welcome in the lovely new colour Orchid Oasis, and I celebrate this wonderful colour with some of my stamping buddies from Claire Daly's, Art With Heart Team - a very creative team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators here in Australia.
I have chosen to team Orchid Oasis card stock and ink with some of our Designer Series Paper to highlight how the colours coordinate across our colour range.
The base card is Orchid Oasis, with a Basic White layer. Then the heavenly patterned paper is from the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper Pack. I've used the Drapery Fold technique for the paper to add some depth and intrigue while showcasing both sides of the beautiful pattern.
Orchid Oasis is not listed as a colour in the paper pack, but it sits nearly perfectly midway between the blues and purples in the paper design.
To tie it in even more, I used a Blender Pen and Orchid Oasis Ink pad to add a little more colour to some of the hand cut flowers from the paper, for the inside of the card.
These are really beautiful papers and gorgeous colours. I'm so excited that the papers are here for the next 12 months of the new catalogue, and the In Colours are here for two years! I can see myself using them a lot!

A really beautiful card, Kathryn. I agree that the drapery fold was a great choice for showing off both sides of the gorgeous DSP.

Love the Drapery Fold technique with this stunning DSP, Kathryn, and the way you've used your Blender Pen and Orchid Oasis Ink to add a little more colour to some of the hand cut flowers from the paper. So lovely to have you back xx

Lovely Kathryn, I haven't done the drapery fold in a long time. The Hues of Happiness DSP really is so pretty when folded like this.

I agree Kathryn those papers are just divine and I'm yet to break into mine. Your card is such a lovely way to make them the hero and your cutting of the flowers is fabulous. Just beautiful

Yes, this technique is wonderful to showcase both sides of the patterned paper, which is so gorgeous. I don't think I've ever thought to add more colour to the DSP, clever and super effective!

Kathryn your card is beautiful and I love how you have used the drapery fold to showcase this gorgeous DSP. Adding Orchid Oasis ink to the flowers is a fabulous idea.

Kathryn your drapery fold is stunning and I also like the hint about adding additional colour to DSP with a blender pen and ink. Never thought of doing that before. Thanks.
