Week 2 Colour Creations Blog-Hop 2022-23 Parakeet Party


Hi Everyone,

Welcome to week 2 of the 2022-23 Blog-Hop. This week our 2nd Incolor is Called Parakeet Party. This is a really lovely bright green. Beings that green is my favourite colour I really didn't have any problems working with it.

 I decided I would make another fancy fold card this one I am calling "Hidden Gift Card Holder Card" What a mouthful ah! 

This time I started my card with a Garden Green card base and added the Parakeet Party as my layer along with the beautiful Tea Boutique DSP. I also used the Cup of Tea bundle and the Color & Contour Bundle for this project. Stamping my flower in Parakeet Party, all the other stamping was done in Garden Green. I finished off the front with the beautiful new gems called Glossy Dots Assorted. My front flap was cut from the dies in the color & Contour set. 
 As you can see there is a hidden pocket inside the card for you to place a gift card. This design is so versatile that I think it could be used for all occasions. I really loving the new Incolors, I hope you will give them a try out. If you would like to know more about the Stampin' Up! Colour range or product please feel free to give me a call, email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.
