Introducing NEW Stampin' Up! 2022 InColor Starry Sky with the new Bottled Happiness stamp set

Hello friends, it's time to explore the last of our new 2022 InColors, which are now just a week away with the launch of the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue on May 3rd.

Today's final colour is Starry Sky, a lovely mid to deep blue with a purple undertone. Here's how it looks with some of the other Stampin' Up! current colours. 

Stampin Up Starry Sky 2022 InColor

For my card today, I have used one of the Tea Boutique note cards (these come in each of the 5 new InColors) together with the new Bottled Happiness stamp set. Both of these products are available in the new Annual Catalogue commencing on May 3rd.

I really love how this colour combination of Starry Sky, Sweet Sorbet, Old Olive and Basic White came together.

The Bottled Happiness stamp set is fun to stamp with! The flower and leaf sections come as two separate photopolymer stamps, so they are easy to line up. The bottle is also in two parts. For the solid piece, I stamped off once with the Starry Sky ink, and for the outline section I stamped at full strength. I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the bottle to give it a bit of shimmer. There is also a coordinating bottle punch for this stamp set (and there is a 10% discount if you bundle them together).

The polka dot Sweet Sorbet paper that is tucked under the left side of the card comes from the 2022-2024 InColor DSP pack that will be available next week. The sentiment is from the Bottled Happiness stamp set and is stamped in Starry Sky. It's cut out with a really versatile new die set called Stylish Shapes.

Introducing NEW Stampin' Up! 2022 InColor Parakeet Party

Hello friends. Today we are looking at another new InColor, Parakeet Party. This one is a bright yellow green which is fun to play with!

Here's how it looks with some of the other current Stampin' Up! colours. 

Stampin Up Parakeet Party new 2022 InColor

I have made a bright and happy 'Just for You' card to showcase this colour. I have used the current Brilliant Wings Dies (also in a bundle with Butterfly Brilliance stamp set) to create the layered butterflies. I really like the softness of Soft Sea Foam with Parakeet Party.

The Designer Series Paper I have used is Tea Boutique, a 6x6" pack which will be available on May 3rd. I have also used some of the 2022-24 InColor Assortment DSP (this one is Orchid Oasis) under my sentiment label. My sentiment is from the current set Celebrating You (in the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue and carrying over to the new catalogue).

Another 'coming soon' product I have used is the 2022-2024 InColor Matte Decorative Dots. I will be using these a lot. You can also see I have used the Stylish Shapes Dies (also coming on May 3rd) again. Love these banner shapes which are quick and easy to cut using the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.

Here's a look at my colour combination for this card.

Stampin Up Colour / Color combination using Parakeet Party, Soft Sea Foam and Orchid Oasis.

I had a Soft Sea Foam butterfly left over, so I made another quick note card using another sheet of the Tea Boutique DSP. I love the simple monochromatic look of this card. I think I will use it as a simple 'hello' note card, and I didn't feel it needed a sentiment.

Introducing NEW Stampin' Up! Sweet Sorbet InColor & Cup of Tea Bundle

Hello friends. I hope you are having a lovely Easter. I have been blessed with some lovely family time, both with my own little family and a trip from my sister from interstate for 10 days. It was her first visit back to Melbourne since before the pandemic, and it was so lovely to spend time with her. 

We are getting closer to the new 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue launch date for customers (May 3rd) so I thought I would start to give you a closer look at some of the new colours with some product sneak peeks. Today I wanted to showcase Sweet Sorbet, a bright Strawberry Red. Here's how it looks against some of our current colours.

Colour Creations Week 41 Sahara Sand with Stampin Up Cactus Cuties Bundle

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hey friends, welcome to another week of Colour Creations blog hop by the Art with Heart Team. This week we are playing with Sahara Sand.

Sahara Sand

My card is a super quick and easy one this week, as I was running a bit late to get it created and up on my blog. I had the colour scheme and products in my head though, so it was pretty quick to get it done. I have used the cactus Cuties punch bundle from the 2022 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue.

Stampin Up Cactus Cuties Hello Card, by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used Shimmery White for my background and have embossed the front layer with the Painted Texture embossing folder (I used my blending brushes to add dome Sahara Sand ink in the centre before I embossed). The pot is stamped in Sahara Sand, the cactus in Mint Macaron and the flowers in Polished Pink.

Here's a closer look at my colour combination. Stampin Up Sahara Sand, Mint Macaron, Polished Pink Colour Combination / Color Combo

Colour Creations Week 34: Petal Pink

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoWelcome to this week's Art with Heart Team Colour Creations Blog Hop. Today we are showcasing Petal Pink, a warm peach pink.

273293232_10161535103403098_6283669330474894085_n

Today's card is inspired by my water bottle! It's a lovely ombre pattern in shades of Petal Pink, Polished Pink and Melon Mambo.

Water bottle

Here is my card. I really love how it turned out, even though I kind of made it up as I went along!

My base card is Petal Pink, and the second layer is Petal Pink embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder.

Step by Step Instructions for Stamped Piece

  1. I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and I used my blending brushes to lay down some Polished Pink ink in the bottom half, and Petal Pink ink in the top half, with lots of blending at the intersection.
  2. Next I blended a little Melon Mambo right at the bottom.
  3. I embossed the small floral image from Blessings of Home stamp set (in the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue) in white over the top of the blended ink.
  4. Next I used a water painter (the fine tip one) to remove a lot of the ink colour from the leaves and petals. You just brush with water and it lightens the ink lots as it dries.
  5. Finally I added additional ink colours onto the image. I used Polished Pink and Rich Razzleberry for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.

To finish my card, I mounted the stamped piece onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, and tucked one of the Heart and Home Doilies underneath (the Basic Gray one). I adhered this with Dimensionals. I stamped the long birthday sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Basic Grey onto Shimmery white, cut it into strips and adhered with Stampin' Seal. I finished off with a double bow of Grey Granite bakers twine.
