Day 2 - RemARKable New Catalog Blog Tour

Hello! I am happy you stopped by today! I just love the way Blushing Bride and Concord Crush complement each other. These are two of the new In Colors in the new Idea Book & Catalog. The big news is that the In Colors will now be featured for 2 years! Woo-Hoo! There are 5 new colors in the In Color Collection: Blushing Bride, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, and Pear Pizzazz. Five new In Colors will be added to the next catalog, for a total of 10 In Colors! Way to go, Stampin' Up!

Here are the supplies I used for this card:
Blushing Bride Cardstock and Stampin' Write Marker
Concord Crush Cardstock and Stampin' Write Marker
Whisper White Cardstock
Vintage Vogue stamp set
Occasional Quotes Level 3 Hostess Set
Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set
Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (I LOVE this!!!)
2-Way Glue Pen
Dazzling Diamonds
Stampin' Dimensionals
Word Window Punch
Modern Label Punch
Whisper White 5/8" Organza Ribbon
Paper Snips

The card is made with Blushing Bride cardstock. I used the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Whipser White cardstock to get the BEAUTIFUL texture. This is a must have for the Sizzix Big Shot machine! I used the Concord Crush Stampin' Write Marker to color the "Love" verse from the Occasional Quotes set. Did you know you can use our Stampin' Write Markers to apply ink to stamps if you don't have the Classic Stampin' Pad? I also used Corcord Crush to stamp the small flower from the Vintage Vogue set. The large flower and vine were stamped using the Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker. Our Paper Snips are great for cutting out these flowers and other detailed images. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to layer the Concord Crush flower on top of the Blusing Bride flower. I layerd the Whisper White cardstock onto the Concord Crush, then wrapped a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon around it. I attached it to the Blusing Bride Card, and then used Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the verse and the flowers.

The inside of the card mirrors the outside of the card. I stamped the vine with Blusing Bride on two corners of the Whisper White layer. "Happy Anniversary" from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped with Concord Crush onto a scrap of Whisper White, then punched out with the Word Window punch. Concord Crush cardstock was used to punch out the Modern Label. These were layered together, then adhered to the inside of the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project! Be sure to stop back tomorrow!
