In Color 2012-2014 Alert: Midnight Muse Summer Silhouettes

 Midnight Muse Summer Silhouettes


This card features the last of the five new 2012-2014 In Colors, Midnight Muse. I love this new color and it’s my favorite! Although it’s blue, it’s not just any blue. It’s not Night of Navy, it’s not Not Quite Navy instead Midnight Muse is a great neutral color I keep reaching for over and over. It works great with pinks and reds and yellows and greens – a must-have for your color collection.

I used the Labels Collection Framelits (125598) to make this card. As you can see from the instructions below, the card itself is a cut out framelit and then I added additional layers of different sized framelits to create the front of the card.

I stamped images from Summer Silhouettes (wood 126445, clear 126447) in Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit inks. I chose a polka-dot pattern paper from the 2012-2014 In Color designer series paper pack (126910) to make the largest frame. If you scroll down you can see my first attempt with this card when I used the Patio Party paper (126916).

I created a frame of Midnight Muse designer series paper and added pearls in the corners. A smaller frame of Whisper White card stock makes up the center of the card stamped in various images from Summer Silhouettes. The smallest frame at the bottom contains a greeting from Perfectly Penned (wood 122890, clear 122892).

Stampin' Up! Labels Collection Framelits Card Step #1

To make the card, I folded a piece of card stock in half and placed the folded edge at the top of the card.

TIP: Use a sticky note to hold your frame in place on the cardstock. The ones I prefer are made by Avery and are sticky on the entire back surface. They can be reused several times.  


Stampin' Up! Labels Collection Framelits Card Step #2

I left a small gap at top so I didn’t cut the fold.


Stampin' Up! Labels Collection Framelits Card Step #3

I then cut a straight line at the bottom of the back of the card so it would stand up and not wobble.



Card #1 – This was the first card I made. I thought the Patio Party designer series paper had too much pattern so I switched to the polka dot paper. It did motivate me to add the punched butterfly so that was good.

Which do you prefer card #1 or card #2?

    I think Midnight Muse is my favorite of the 5 new colors. It fits nicely between Navy and Not Quite Navy.

    I like both the cards and love the Midnight Muse. My favourite is the one with the Patio Paper…just because of the butterflies!…it’s fun. The other card is beautiful as well…just a bit more formal.
