Introducing Aloha & May Color Couture

Dawn's headshot

Dawn McVey has been one busy lady the past few months and has SO much goodness to share with you for the May release.  Not only just have a fun new stamp set, but another round of the printed Color Couture Embellishments & Inspiration Pages for the exclusive Color Couture Binder are ready to go.  Such an amazing resource to keep right at your fingertips!

Aloha is her latest set with super fun images that nod to Hawaii and all of the beauty & magic that the islands possess.  I haven't yet had the opportunity to go there myself, but I certainly hope to one day!

The details.

  • Aloha will be available for purchase on May 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Aloha contains a total of stamps (3 images and 8 sentiments)

The new Color Couture package for May (Volumes 4-6) has oodles of fun borders, accents, sentiments & focal points that you can use for quick & easy cards.  Not to mention three more Color Swatch Dividers to inspire you with artful color combinations when you need a little push or just stuck in a color rut!

The details.

  • Color Couture, Volumes 4-6, will be available for purchase on May 15th.
  • It will retail for $12.
  • Color Couture, Volumes 4-6, contains 3 Color Swatch Dividers, 9 inspiration pages of projects (contributed by Dawn, Betsy Veldman & Melissa Phillips), and 15 pages of full-color embellishments.
  • An exclusive binder designed to hold all of your pages together with style and easy reference is available for purchase separately HERE.
  • This is an ongoing series.  A new printed collection will be introduced once each quarter, with the other two months of the quarter bringing you inexpensive downloadable materials to add to your binder for even more inspiration!

The colors used are as follows: 

Vol.4 (Hawaiian Shores, New Leaf, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, White)  


Vol.5 (Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile, Ripe Avocado, White)

Vol.6 (Summer Sunrise, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist)

I thought I would go into a bit more detail about this fabulous product line today and show you just what you get! 

Open binder
Here is what this cute little binder looks like with the first set (Volumes 1-3) and the new second set (Volumes 4-6) of pages look like assembled all together in the binder. The binder measures 9" x 7.5" so it has a relatively small footprint and is easy to store. Totally takes me to a happy place to see all that goodness together in one spot!

Section closeup
You'll notice that the Color Swatch Dividers

Page 1
Here's an example of what the first part of a volume looks like.  You'll notice that the Color Swatch Divider is a bit taller than the other pages so that you can easily flip to any given section and browse all the color combinations with ease.

Page 2
When you flip the Color Swatch Divider over, you will have the Embellishment pages using those colors ready to cut out and use.  There are five (yes, FIVE) Embellishment pages for each volume, with each page featuring several different elements that you can use for your projects.  I think they're fun to use as a quick jumping point because once you select one to use, all you need to pull out is the coordinating cardstock and perhaps a bit of ribbon to create a quick and easy project!

Page 3
The third portion for a volume is a set of THREE Inspiration Pages, each featuring a full-color project, supply list and complete instructions.  There is one project each from Dawn herself, Betsy Veldman and Melissa Phillips in each and EVERY volume!  That means with the purchase of one collection (which contains three volumes) you get a whooping NINE project ideas using the very embellishments that you also receive in the package!

Binder top
For those of you that are always requesting a Papertrey Idea Book, this is an excellent resource that gives you so many points of reference!  And don't forge that this is an ongoing series!  A new printed collection will be introduced once each quarter, with the other two months of the quarter bringing you inexpensive downloadable materials to add to your binder for even more inspiration!

Binder on desk
I keep my binder sitting right next to my ink pad storage on my table top so I can grab it and use it as inspiration whenever I am stuck.  This is a fantastic product line that Dawn has invested lots of thought and time into and I know that anyone who purchases this will be so incredibly glad they did!

Now, enough of my chatter!  How about we get to a few projects?

Happy Together Card
I love, love, love this first card.  It's simple but striking and really captured the colors of Hawaii, giving it a tropical feel.

Stamped background
I started by stamping the Hibiscus image from Aloha all over my New Leaf cardstock using Fresh Snow ink.  I noticed that when dry, it almost takes a blue tone to it, so I decided incorporate some other blues into my project.

I put together a few fun dies to create a unique mat.  You will see here that I die cut the NEW! Mat Stack 2 die from Aqua Mist cardstock and the Beautiful Blooms die from Hawaiian Shores cardstock.

Layered dies
When you put them together, you end up with something like this.  I just adored how the flower layered behind the Mat Stack 2 just barely peeks out, giving you a pop of color.

Focal closeup
I used my ribbon loop technique with Hawaiian Shores grosgrain ribbon behind the layers I just created.  The focal point sentiment is cut from none other than the Color Couture Vol. 6 collection of embellishments that I referenced earlier.  It set off my project perfectly and coordinated well with my color scheme.

Last but not least, I added a few New Leaf buttons with glue dots on either end of the Mat Stack 2 die-cut.  I've mentioned it before, but it bears repeating, this die shape is perfectly suited for buttons or embellishments because of the elongated tabs on each side.

Thinking of You card
This next card is totally tropical and super easy and simple to recreate!

I stamped the Hibiscus flower twice, once on my kraft card cover and once on a separate scrap of white cardstock.  I colored the leaves in on the kraft version using the Ripe Avocado Copic Trio.  On the second hibiscus, I colored the flower with  the Orange Zest Trio and accented the center with Pure Poppy markers.

Drawing lines

I used a ruler and white gel pen to add a frame to the kraft card base.  I love doing this on simple projects like this because it really brings it the next level and it's such an easy technique to do.

Hibiscus closeup
I cut out the colored hibiscus and even cut apart the petals along the dividing lines.  I curved and cupped each petal slightly to give the flower a bit more dimension.

I just loved how it turned out and can imagine doing a whole collection of different colors!  The sentiment, "Thinking of you" is also from Aloha.  I love this font and I think it complements the images SO well!

Surfer Dude card
Now, how about a teen birthday card?  Sometimes those teen boy projects can be tough. I thought this surf board image was just the thing to use as a jumping point for a project of that nature.  I colored the surf board with Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avocado and just a touch of Orange Zest Copic Marker Trio.  I swiped my Aqua Mist ink pad around the exterior of the focal point to represent the clear blue sky.  The background was created with one of my old favorites, Dot Spot.

Surfer Dude sentiment
The sentiments I used are "Happy Birthday" from Handwritten Notes and "Surfer Dude" from Aloha.  Both of which are stamped in True Black ink.

Sand closeup
The "sand" was created with kraft cardstock and stamped with Text Style using Dark Chocolate ink.  I swiped just a tad of Tea Dye Duo along the top edge and tied Rustic Jute Button Twine around the focal point a few times as a finishing accent.  It reminded me a bit of the hemp necklaces that can sometimes be seen on surfers.  I think any boy would love to receive this no matter the age, especially knowing that it was handmade for them!

Sending You card
This last card showcases the ADORABLE post card image that is included in the new Aloha set, as well as a few more Color Couture accents.  The background of this card was stamped with Gigs Guide Lines using Versamark ink.

Flower closeup
The embellishments were cut our from the Color Couture Vol. 2 collection.  I thought the little postage stamp went well with my postcard image.  And I loved the colors in the flowers, as they were a jumping point for the entire projects color scheme.

Sending you closeup
The Sending Thanks sentiment (from Big & Bold Wishes) is stamped in Terracotta Tile, while the small sentiment underneath it is stamped in True Black.  The edges of the entire focal point block are swiped with the Tea Dye Duo pads.
