Color Fusers June 2023 Masterfully Made

Welcome to the June 2023 Color Fusers blog hop where I am sharing a project created with the Masterfully Made designer series paper, and coordinating Gorgeously Made Dies.

I love this month’s color combination featuring our new pink, Bubble Bath. It is a beautiful soft pink and I have already used it quite a bit on my projects since it’s debut. We are also featuring Pretty Peacock, a returning past In Color favorite!

For this project, I used Bubble Bath for the card base, and reached for the Subtles 6×6 Color Assortment Designer Series Paper Stack to also use it for a full card front. These color assortment pack prints always add a great touch to any project!

I pulled in this Pretty Peacock layer and create contrast for the other elements. This layer was created using the beautiful Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper. This unique paper pack has bright bold patterns and some blending prints, including this floral print. It worked perfectly on this project. This month, Stampin’ Up! has Designer Series Paper on sale, and this new paper is included!

This paper was layered together with some Pool Party to create contrast for foliage pieces die cut from the More Dazzle Specialty Paper. I dressed it all up a bit more with Pool Party Grosgrain Ribbon and Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems.

For the sentiment, I used the Happy Labels stamp set. This set is a perfect all occasions stamp set, and I love the fonts!

This is probably my most used stamp set since the new annual catalog launched.

To Create this Card

  • Bubble Bath card base 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Designer Series Paper layer in Bubble Bath 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Pool Party cardstock 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
  • Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper 3 3/4″ x 4″
  • Scrap of Bubble Bath cardstock for sentiment

Fold card base and burnish well at score line. Adhere Bubble Bath designer series paper to card front. Die cut one long edge of the Masterfully Made designer series paper layer with the Gorgeously Made notebook edge die, and layer with Pool Party cardstock offset. Add layer to card front with dimensionals. Die cut (2) foliage pieces from More Dazzle specialty paper and adhere to card front. Stamp sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink on Bubble Bath cardstock and die cut. Cut a piece of Pool Party Ribbon in half lengthwise, and loop behind sentiment before adhere to card front. Embellish as desired with Sparkle Gems.

Annual Catalog Product Shares & Paper Samplers round 2! Did you miss out on my product share and paper sampler offering? Well…..I got you! Here is your chance!

What are Product Shares & Paper Samplers

Product Shares – a product share is a partial pack of all the papers listed, grouped and packaged for easy use. This is perfect for trying lots of different papers, to see which ones you love! It’s a great way to get lots of variety at a fraction of the cost when compared to buying full packs.

Paper Samplers – paper samplers are actually creative tools used to either display a paper collection, or to use while you are crafting. These are invaluable to coordinate products while you are working. Each collection set features all the designer paper patterns, the catalog name and image, item number, detailed information as needed, and coordinating colors all in a compact tool. The best part….once you no longer want the sampler, you can pull it apart and use the paper to create!

Color Fusers May 2023 Scrap Buster Technique with In Colors

Thanks for hopping along with the Color Fusers today where I am sharing a card made with a scrap buster technique and the new In Colors.

New colors are always an exciting part of every new Annual Catalog. And tomorrow, the new catalog will launch. Not only do we have these beautiful new In Colors, but this year there is a whole color refresh!

I can’t wait to create with our fresh color line.

It can be tricky to include 5 colors on a project, but I thought this scrap buster technique worked perfectly to bring them all in. I have already been busy creating with the new In Colors, and have plenty of scraps. This technique is great for using up strips.

Scrap Buster Technique

When your scrap piles get the best of you, pull out strips of all different colors and create some focal pieces. This technique is so easy. First, start with a piece of Basic White cardstock. Next, arrange strips of cardstock on white layer to completely cover the white, and adhere in place. Liquid multipurpose glue works best for this. Finally, trim off what extends beyond the edge of the white cardstock. You can now use this piece for a layer or to die cut pieces for your projects.

To Create This Project

  • 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Moody Mauve card base, scored at 4 1/4″
  • 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ Basic Black
  • 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ Basic White
  • multiple 1/2″ strips of various cardstock scraps

Fold card base in half and burnish well. Stamp sentiment from Biggest Wish stamp set in bottom corner with black ink. Stamp plus image randomly on card front in Moody Mauve ink. Die cut scalloped edge on black cardstock layer using the Scalloped Contours dies. Add liquid glue to white layer. Cover with strips of cardstock scraps, completely covering white layer. Trim anything that extends beyond the white layer. Adhere to black die cut layer using dimensionals. Tie a black twine bow around strip layer, then adhere to card base with dimensionals. Embellish as desired with black dots. Stamp desired sentiment inside card in black ink.

Thank You
