Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop – Color Theory! Please welcome our guest hopper, Val Mood from Great Britain!! Today, the team created a variety of projects using the Color Theory Suite seen on pages 146 and 147 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog. So, you are sure to find lots of inspiration.

Colorful Seasons for Stamping Sunday Blog Hop

For my first creation, I concentrated on the Colorful Seasons stamp set that is part of the Color Theory Suite.

I used a Basic Black base for my card.

Then, I added a Lemon Lime Twist scallop cut with the

Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

 Next, I stamped a layer of Whisper White

using two leaf images from Colorful Seasons.

After creating my pattern with the Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Black leaves,

I added a piece of Pick a Pattern washi.

The sentiment was stamped on a Lemon Lime Twist leaf and cut out with a coordinating

thinlit from Seasonal Layers.

The remaining pieces of the sentiment were cut with the Pretty Label Punch

and then reassembled.

Final touches are the black sequins from the Mini Sequin Trim.

Next, I used Colorful Seasons again and

and some Color Theory designer paper to

create a gift card holder.

For the front, I stamped images from Colorful Seasons in Berry Burst.

The images were cut out with the new 2-1/4″ Circle Punch and a coordinating thinlit.

I cut the scallop top with a thinlit from Seasonal Layers.

Then, I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Finely Woven Berry Burst ribbon around

the gift card holder and tied it up with some

Silver Mini Sequin Trim.

I used a side piece from the Wood Crate Framelits

to make the holder for my gift card.

I’ll be using this creation for graduation presents!
