Color of the Week – Lovely Lipstick

Jun 6, 2018 | Color of the Week, Colors

I have always had a thing for color.  I love putting colors together, whether for a craft project, a project around the house, or even for my outfits.  And now, with the Color Revamp from Stampin’ Up! giving us 53 colors to create with, I want to share some color love with you each week of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog year.  Every Wednesday I will share a blog post titled “Color of the Week – *color name*” featuring one of the colors.  There will be a card idea, color combinations and comparisons, and a list of all the current products in the Annual Catalog that contain that color.  The first five weeks will start off with the new In Colors, beginning with Lovely Lipstick, and after that randomly go through the rest of the colors.

Make sure to follow along here on the blog or on my Instagram and Facebook pages.  I will be using the hashtag #makewithcolor throughout the year when I share color projects and combinations and ask that you join in too!  All you have to do is tag me (@mackenziemakes) and use the #makewithcolor hashtag so I can see what you are sharing.  I’m so excited to bring you color inspiration all year long!

Run a 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″ piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock through the Big Shot with the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Layer on a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Basic Black cardstock, then add to a Whisper White card base.  Stamp the sentiment (from the Love What You Do stamp set) with Lovely Lipstick ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the 2″ Circle Punch.  Using the small floral design and the same ink color, stamp off on scratch paper then stamp on the circle a couple times.  Add to the card with Dimensionals.
