DOStamper STARs Thursday Challenge #186 - Product Spotlight - 2016-2018 In-Colors

Welcome to this week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we are having a "Product Spotlight" challenge using the 2016-2018 In-Color products. I love the new in-color, especially the Dapper Denim and  I managed to get every one of the new colors in my card. Woohoo!


Let's just say I really love the Artistically Asian stamp set, I love it so much I accidentally ordered three.  So glad Stampin' Up has a great exchange program.  For this card I used the masking tape technique with 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch masking tape to create a colored background with Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, and Sweet Sugarplum.  Stamped the bamboo image and characters in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Layered that with Emerald Envy and Whisper White onto a Dapper Demin card base.  Added a few Neutrals Dots (retired) to finish the card.  I love this card.  It reminds me of the simple, yet beautiful artwork I saw in Japan and China.  My hubby and I were fortunate to live in Japan for 8 years, where we met and got married, and to visit China 3 times to pick up our kiddos. 

Card Recipe:

Card Stock: Dapper Denim Base, Whisper White, Emerald Envy
Stamp/s: Artistically Asian
Ink: Basic Black Archival Ink, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum
Accessories: Tombow Mono Glue, Dimensionals

  1. Oh my gosh - I love, love, love this! Great way to show off this stamp set. Thanks for playing along for this week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge!

  2. Oh, how pretty! You make these colors look great together. That dark blue background really allows the other colors to POP! Thanks for sharing.

  3. What an effective use of varying colors - a combination and layering I would never have thought of; dynamic in its simplicity; true to Asian art parameters. Then to top it all off - you threw in an interesting background technique.


Thanks for stopping by, be sure to come back for more inspiration.
