Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Favourite InColour

Welcome back for another Stampin' Dreams blog hop. We are from all over the world and you have just landed with Lou Kitzelman. I live on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. Today we are all showcasing our favourite new InColours. Here are my 2 favourites ..... well for this week anyway!
I am obsessed with Tranquil Tide at the moment and love how it goes with neutrals such as Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand. Today I have also teamed it with Real Red to use on this Bridge Fold Card. This cute bundle that I have used is called Santa's Suit out of the new Stampin' Up! holiday catalogue and will be available to order from September 1st.

I have decided that the title of this card will be "When even your spare uniform is in the wash"! I had to make Santa peek out from behind the washing line post because I couldn't make his body. Turned out cuter this way I think.

This is a fabulous card fold called a Bridge Fold Card and I used Bronwyn Eastley's tutorial to make it. She has used the Night in Bethlehem bundle to make hers. It is a fabulous tutorial that gives you great instructions for the fold so that you can adapt it to use with other stamp and thinlit sets.

It is a 3D card fold that also folds flat to fit into a standard C6 envelope.

I love this set and can see that it will get a real work out in the lead up to Christmas. How cute are those clothes and tiny pegs?

Tranquil Tide is such a fabulous shade of green. The DSP that I have used is from the Delightful Daisy pack and has a variegated pattern on it. I made some grass for the front of the card to form the 'bridge' by chopping into a strip of cardstock with the Ticket Tear border punch.

Did you know Santa has a sensitive side? He loves a bit of Powder Pink in his accessories!

The Santa's Suit bundle has so many bits to it. There are little thinlits to cut out borders such as the trees below on the back message panel. So many bits to use in this bundle and so little time!

Make sure you hop around to see everyone's favourite InColours. You can use the list below. Next up you are off to America to visit Debbie Henderson.

You can purchase this tutorial as part of 2 different bundles over at AddINKtive Designs here and here.
