Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Introducing Petunia Pop

For last week’s Card & Cuppa class, I designed a project using another of the new 2024-2026 In Colors.

Petunia Pop was the colour I chose and I combined it with Old Olive, Petal Pink and Basic White.

All of the stamping was from the Painted Lavender Stamp Set, with pieces cut out using the matching Painted Lavender Dies.

The design is inspired by a project in the now retired previous Jan-April Mini Catalogue.

First, the stems are stamped, with the flowers stamped on top. Another set of flowers are then stamped onto a separate sheet with first and second generation stamping to provide different depths of colour.

These flowers and the additional stems are cut out using the dies and attached to the project.

Butterflies are then added in the corner.

Wink of Stella is dotted onto the flowers and butterflies as needed.

Finally, some sequins from the Adhesive-Backed Sequins Trio are added for a little touch of bling.

As this design is sentiment free, it makes it great for any occasion. You can either leave it as it is, or add a sentiment nearer the time.

If you are a fan of Petunia Pop, here is comparison of it to other current Stampin’ Up! colours.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Introducing Peach Pie

Last week’s Card & Cuppa project used both a new Bundle from the Annual Catalogue and a new In Color too.

For this sentiment free design I was introducing Peach Pie, one of the new In Color Collection for 2024-2026. See the bottom of this post for more details on Peach Pie.

This new orange is teamed with Pecan Pie and Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla for a softer look.

The project also uses the new Flowers of Beauty Bundle (Stamp Set & Dies).

A background is stamped in 2nd and 3rd generation stamping (see my Top Tips, Tricks & Techniques Video here for more details on generational stamping).

Next, the central leaves and flower are stamped and cut out using the coordinating dies. As the flower is two-step stampin’ we used Peach Pie for both parts, stamping off the infill piece to make it lighter. The large leaf is then cut out too.

Using a Blender Pen, the two smaller leaves are given a little bit of colour.

One of the Online Exclusives Circle Punches creates the central piece that all of the cut outs are then attached to.

Coordinating In Color Bordered Ribbon is then added across the centre of the project before the circle with it’s attachments are stuck on with Dimensionals.

Finally, some In Color Shimmer Gems, again in coordinating Peach Pie, add a little touch of sparkle.

As this design is sentiment free, it makes it great for any occasion. You can either leave it as it is, or add a sentiment nearer the time.

If you are a fan of Peach Pie, here is comparison of it to other current Stampin’ Up! colours.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Inspired by the New Annual Catalogue

At last week’s Card & Cuppa Class, I took inspiration from a project in the new Annual Catalogue.

A base colour combination of Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Basic White is the perfect canvas for the splash of colour from the leaves.

Using the Layering Leaves Stamp Set, the background was stamped with the ‘splats’ image in Crumb Cake.

Then, leaves were stamped in Crumb Cake and punched out with the coordinating Bough Punch. They were then coloured in using the Watercolor Pencils.

Next, the second shape on the punch was cut out in Basic White cardstock.

All of the leaves were then layered together on the background.

Early Espresso is used to stamp the sentiment and is cut out using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch from the Online Exclusives range.

A length of Essentials Baker’s Twine in coordinating Crumb Cake is then looped to the back of the sentiment.

Finally, the sentiment is raised up over the leaves with Dimensionals.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Bee My Valentine Stamp Set & Punch

Last week’s Card & Cuppa project took inspiration from the outgoing January-April Mini Catalogue.

It uses the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set and coordinating Bee Builder Punch. These items are only available as a discounted Bundle until the end of April.

From the name of the Stamp Set, you may think that it is for February and love, but take a look at how it is used here.

Be sure to check out the Last Chance list to see all of the items that are retiring. These items are only available until the end of April, while stocks last.

My colour combination was taken from the Shiny Sequins in the Online Exclusives range – Melon Mambo, Lemon Lolly, Lemon Lime Twist and Pumpkin Pie.

Using another product from the Online Exclusives, the Basic Embossing Folders, the Lemon Lolly piece was given some texture.

Next, five shapes were cut using the Punch. Four of these were then stamped using the flower and leaf images from the Stamp Set. The final shape was stamped with a sentiment from the Layering Leaves Stamp Set.

A touch of Wink of Stella was added to the flowers for a bit of sparkle.

Two of the shapes were then stuck directly onto the background, with the other three raised up on Dimensionals.

Finally, some coordinating Melon Mambo Shiny Sequins were added for another touch of bling.
