Want to see a sneak peek of the new 2013-2015 In Colors?
First up is Crisp Cantaloupe.
I paired the coming to the new catalogue Label Love stamp set and coordinating Artisan Label Punch with the new Soho Subway designer series paper which also has a lot of Crisp Cantaloupe in it. I paired the Crisp Cantaloupe with Early Espresso and Very Vanilla for these two cards.
I made the same basic card twice. This first card is portrait or hamburger style. I added a greeting from the must have Essentials stamp set ($8.95, set of 2, 126370). The center of the stamped label is from the Spring Surprise Bundle and includes a set of 8 stamps – A Round Array Stamp Set (Clear only 129090) and the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch (129404).
This next card is a really simple landscape or hotdog style card. I stamped the label twice, once in Crisp Cantaloupe and once in Early Espresso. I cut just the greeting from the Early Espresso version and adhered it to the larger label.
To create a larger frame for a punch, punch out two additional pieces for the frame and cut one in half horizontally and one vertically.
Glue one set behind the punched piece overlapping the smaller punched piece.
To finish, glue the last set of cut pieces behind the punched piece overlapping in the opposite direction.
I always like to do a comparison of the new colour to some of the existing colours.
Here are from left to right: Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Crisp Cantaloupe, Melon Mambo and Primrose Petals.
Initially I thought Crisp Cantaloupe fit in well with the pinks but I decided to do a comparison to the orange colours.
From left to right are: Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Tangerine Tango and Pumpkin Pie. And I think it fits in just as well here. So is it orange or pink? You decide.
