new colours!

limedoodledad1

Did you hear it? The happy sigh when I saw the new colours from Simon Says Stamp! Grey folks! Grey! I am giddy with the possibilities I tell you :D Of course there are four other fabulous colours too making up a selection entitled ‘Daybreak‘ and all seven come in card and a matching ink pad.

Daybreakbanner

Not only that but there’s a range of new Simon Says Stamp sequins too! You can see the full Daybreak release here :)

I took inspiration from a gorgeous picture I found on Pinterest and reached for my Pointed Feather dies and new colours :) The lightest grey card (Fog) I used for the card panel, the medium grey (Smoke) for the card base and the little tag and finally the darkest grey (Slate) for the branch. Another new colour used here is the luscious Burnt Orange die cut with the Leaf Column Background die and then snipped the ends to be used as berries.

I blended a little Burnt Orange ink into the Burnt Orange berries and did the same for the Sea Glass feather. The sentiment is from the Father’s Day stamp set and was white heat embossed onto the Smoke tag.

  • Michele Ferguson - April 15, 2014 - 1:22 pm

    Debby!!! Love your card – but no surprise there =] I adore grey cardstock and have been using one from PTI, but must say I like these colors from SSS so much. Having never bought their cardstock – how do you compare it to Neenah #110 as far as weight? Love to hear your opinion! Thanks for your inspiration, as always.ReplyCancel

    • Debby - April 15, 2014 - 8:48 pm

      Hi Michele! SSS is a lovely weight just a tad lighter than neenah at #100 but equally a really good thickness. Really great for card bases. I was always reluctant to use neenah 80lb for card bases but these SSS ones are way studier :)

    I am with you about the grey… so difficult to find a good grey cardstock and ink. They all seem to have either too much blue or too much green in them.
    This is another stunning card. Masterful use of color and white space. Brilliant!ReplyCancel

Spring

limedoodleCBSspring1

Challenge

It’s time for a Clearly Besotted Challenge and the key word for this month is ‘Spring’. I seriously adore Stephanie’s flower stamps so it was an easy choice for me as to what to work with for this challenge!

This is such a simple, CAS card! I did have plans to layer things over this white heat embossed and Copic coloured image but didn’t want to cover it up LOL. In the end I stamped a sentiment, added a little Lawn Fawn twine and called it good :D With such great images they really can take centre stage. Also of note is that I love making small cards, I think these are termed 4 bar – 3.5″ by 4 ⅞”. This size, for me works really well, allowing an image to be the focal point and therefore not needing to add much more – great for CAS cards.

Pop over and see Stephanie, for all the challenge and giveaway details and to see what the rest of the Design Team came up with for ‘Spring’ :)

Supplies: Stamps – Clearly Besotted Stamps fresh flowers; Ink – Simon Says Stamp black, Versamark; Card – Neenah solar white; Embossing Powder – Hero Arts white; Copics; Enamel Dots – Basic Grey; Zig Wink of Stella clear glitter pen; Twine – Lawn Fawn coral
