Sneak Peek #1: Stampin' Up! 2016-18 In-Color Sweet Sugarplum

I was fortunate to be selected by Stampin' Up! to make card samples using the brand new Stampin' Up! 2016-18 In-Colors for the demonstrator only #OnStage2016 event held in Sydney on 16 April. 

I received a couple of new stamp sets along with the five new colours and was asked to make 20 card samples (four of each colour) to highlight the new 2016-18 In-Colors.

This is the first of five posts, one for each colour giving you a sneak peek of the new colours and some of the new stamp sets being released with the new annual catalogue on 1 June 2016.  If you are interested in Stampin' Up! products and are located in Australia, please contact me as I'd be happy to assist you.

Colour #1: Sweet sugarplum

Sweet sugarplum is a soft muted colour which works well with many of the other Stampin' Up! colours such as Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Smoky Slate and Mint Macaron.

This 'happy mother's day' card features the Sweet Sugarplum 30.5cm x 30.5cm (12x12") 2016-18 In-Color DSP stack, card stock, ruched ribbon and classic ink along with the Circle of Spring stamp set and Wondrous Wreath framelits.

This card features the Sweet Sugarplum 30.5cmx30.5cm 2016-18 In-Color DSP stack, card stock, ruched ribbon and classic ink along with the new Love You Lots hostess stamp set.  I watercoloured the elephant and mouse using Smoky Slate and a touch of Sweet Sugarplum classic ink. 

This card features the Sweet Sugarplum 30.5cmx30.5cm DSP stack, card stock and classic ink along with the new Layering Love stamp set.  I used the current First Sight stamp set, silver metallic foil doily and bow builder punch to add a touch of elegance to this card.

My last Sweet Sugarplum card featured the new Gift of Love hostess stamp set.  This is a gorgeous two step stamp set and the 'For You' sentiment is also from this same set.  I created a layered frame using the Lots of Labels framelits with Night of Navy and Sweet Sugarplum card stock.
I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek of some new stamp sets and the Sweet Sugarplum 2016-18 In-Color.  Check back for the other four colours.
