June Jems Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the 2nd Jems Blog Hop, we had so much fun last time , we're doing it all again !

This time the theme is the new Stampin Up In Colours.

I love playing around with colour combinations and like how the colours change the mood of a project. For today's Hop I decided to make a card for each of the 5 new In Colours but to keep the other colours the same. So I decided that Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe would work with each of the colours, what do you think ?


The first one is Flirty Flamingo......



The butterfly has been stamped with a gorgeous flower from the new hostess set Fabulous Flora.

Next on to Emerald Envy.......



And on to Peekaboo Peach....



And Dapper Denim......


And finally, and probably my favourite version of this particular card, Sweet Sugarplum...




And a picture of all of them together......



Which one is your favourite ?

Here are the links to the rest of the Jem's projects in the Hop


     


Happy Hopping and please pop back again soon x

  5. Beautiful! I love how you've made your own DSP! I love sweet sugarplum, especially used with an aqua painter for watercolouring! But to be honest I think they are all great now I've had chance to use them! Sam xx
