Hey! It's Kathryn here, welcome to the Colour Creations Showcase where some of my lovely demonstrator friends on the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team share ideas for how to use each of the Stampin' Up! colours. Each week we showcase a different colour and this week it's Old Olive.
This week I have tried something different. I have my team night tomorrow night which like all of last year, is going to be via Zoom. So over the weekend I went looking for some card sketches and posted them on my group to challenge the ladies to put together mini kits for themselves that we can make while we are chatting on Zoom tomorrow night.
I have been subscribed to Becky Fleck's pagemaps for many years so I was very happy to see these cardmaps - one landscape and one portrait for January 2021.
I have been LOVING using up my collection of Designer Series Papers recently, and when I saw these sketches, along with knowing that this week's colour is Old Olive, I KNEW I was going to use the new delicious Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper from the January to June Mini Catalogue. (And in Melbourne' it's been perfect weather for icecream too!).
Don't you love all those bright gelato colours?
Here's what I came up with:
Don't you love the way the Old Olive base card and the Old Olive ink in the stamped greeting really brings out the green in the papers?
For the portrait card I chose the smaller pattern on the reverse side of one of the papers for the background of the top half, and opted for a few less banners as the paper was so pretty anyway.
Please leave a comment and if you'd like to see what the other talented ladies have created featuring Old Olive, then please visit Cathy's blog here where she has the link to each of their Old Olive articles.
See you next week!
