Introduction to In Color Class – All Five Together

Today I’m sharing the final project from my annual Introduction to In Color Class, where it’s all five together.

It’s become tradition over the years that the project that uses all five colours together is a striped one. This year is no exception!

Of course, the colours used are the In Colors 2022-2024, along with Basic White. You can make a lot of these cards from one In Color A4 Cardstock pack.

Each colour is used to create the stripey background. One of the most difficult parts of this design is choosing which order to put the colours in.

In their class kits, the attendees received lengths of In Color Baker’s Twine, and these are wrapped around the project.

A sentiment from the Hello Beautiful Stamp Set is cut out using the new Lasting Label Punch from the Annual Catalogue. This is raised up on Dimensionals over the Baker’s Twine.

Finally, coordinating large and small embellishments from the In Color Matte Decorative Dots are added.

Here are all of the projects from the class. Do you have a favourite?

Introduction to In Color Class – Tahitian Tide

Things got really fishy with the Tahitian Tide project from my annual Introduction to In Color Class.

The ‘sea’ combines Tahitian Tide and Pacific Point, with the Layering Diorama Dies providing the outline shape.

Seaweed is from the Natural Prints Dies from the Annual Catalogue and they are in Granny Apple Green.

Using the new Fish Builder Punch, several are cut out in more colours from the Brights Collection, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight.

The different pieces are layered to create depth (pun intended!), with the top layer raised up on Dimensionals.

A sentiment from the Art Gallery Stamp Set has a length of the coordinating Metallic Woven Ribbon added behind it in a wave pattern.

Fish eyes are made from the Matte Decorative Dots, coloured with a Stampin’ Blend.

Finally, coordinating Matte Decorative Dots are added to create the effect of bubbles.

Introduction to In Color Class – Sweet Sorbet

For the Sweet Sorbet project at my recent Introduction to In Color Class, we made this card.

It combines here with Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla.

Using the Vintage Bottle Punch, Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome and Effervescent Elements, all new in the Annual Catalogue, the fun shaker section is created.

Leaves, cut using the Bough Punch are stuck to the project. Then, flowers from the Sending Dies, Flowers of Home Dies and Penned Flowers Dies are coated in Wink of Stella and added using Glue Dots.

Each flower is given a centre using a combination of In Color Matte Decorative Dots from the Class kit and some Iridescent Pearls.

Finally, a bow made from coordinating In Color Metallic Woven Ribbon sit on the bottle.

This project is sentiment free, but one can be added if required.

Introduction to In Color Class – Starry Sky

The third project from my annual Introduction to In Color Class is this scrunched Birthday Card for Starry Sky.

The new In Color of Starry Sky combines with Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla for a grungey feel.

It is a similar design layout to the project on page 53 of the Annual Catalogue using the new Decorative Circle Punch.

The background piece is given a good scrunching before being stuck to the layer at an angle.

Next, the shapes are given different levels of scrunching and two of them are stuck down.

The centre shape has a piece of the the coordinating Metallic Woven Ribbon wrapped around it.

Two lengths of the ribbon are then stuck to the back, the ends tied and then frayed up to the knot.

A sentiment from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set is then cut out by hand and also stuck to one edge of the Crumb Cake shape.

Using Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals, the whole shape, with the overhanging edge of the sentiment are stuck to the card to raise it up.

Finally, some coordinating Matte Decorative Dots are added.

This design has so many different ways in which it can be created, from grunge, Sponge Daubers, stamping, DSP, clean lines and more.

Why not make your own version? I’d love to see it.

Introduction to In Color Class – Parakeet Party

The second project from this year’s Introduction to In Color Class was for Parakeet Party.

I just had to use the new Twigs & Springs Embossing Folder & Die from the Annual Catalogue for this card.

Parakeet Party combines with Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie, with a sentiment on Basic White.

An embossed background sets the scene. Then, more embossed pieces, cut out with dies are then placed around the centre.

A swoosh of the coordinating Metallic Woven Ribbon is then added.

The Artistically Inked Stamp Set provides the sentiment, cut out using the Stylish Shapes Dies.

Parakeet Party leaves are stuck both behind and on top of the sentiment before being raised up on Dimensionals in the centre of the project.

A few small Matte Decorative Dots, one of the items from the attendee class kit, provides a finishing touch.

Introduction to In Color Class – Orchid Oasis

Earlier this week, I held my annual Introduction to ‘In Color’ Class.

Attendees make six projects, one concentrating on each of the five new colours, and one that combines all five together.

Along with the cardstock and envelopes for each project, the class kit included In Color Ribbon, In Color Baker’s Twine and this year’s In Color embellishments.

The first project from the class is for Orchid Oasis, which I chose to combine with Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo, along with Basic White.

Using the new Dots & Spots Die from the Annual Catalogue, a length of the coordinating Metallic Ribbon is threaded through three lines of the holes.

A butterfly cut using the Brilliant Wings Dies is given a coat of Wink of Stella.

This sits on layering circles from the Stylish Shapes Dies. The butterfly has been stuck down the centre to allow for the wings to be given some extra shaping. Plus, the circles sit on some Dimensionals to raise it over the ribbon.

Finally, some of the In Color Matte Decorative Dots are added.

I’ve left this project sentiment free, making it perfect for any occasion.

Pop back next week for the next project from the class.

Saying Hello – In Color 2022-2024: Tahitian Tide

The final In Color from the new Annual Catalogue is Tahitian Tide.

This colour is another of my favourites.

I have again used the same design as I did for the Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party, Starry Sky and Sweet Sorbet projects.

Tahitian Tide. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Using the 6×6 DSP, this creates a diagonal backround, with a length of In Color Metallic Woven Ribbon covering the join.

Sweet Songbirds, a new Stamp Set and Punch Bundle from the Annual Catalogue provides the cute bird. This sits on a cloud cut out using the Cloud Punch.

It reminds me of a certain social media network!

Finally, as before, In Color Matte Decorative Dots are added.

 

Here is a quick reference of how this new colour compares to the other Stampin’ Up! colours.

Saying Hello – In Color 2022-2024: Sweet Sorbet

The penultimate In Color from the new Annual Catalogue, in alphabetical order is Sweet Sorbet.

Sweet Sorbet. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

I’ve once again used the same monochrome design as I did for the Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party and Starry Sky projects.

Sweet Sorbet. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

In Color 6×6 DSP cut on the diagonal provides the background, with a length of coordinating Metallic Woven Ribbon to cover the join.

The Artistically Inked Stamp Set and Artistic Dies create the flowers. These sit on a shape cut using the new Stylish Shapes Dies. They remind me of the red roses that flower outside my front door at this time of year.

Sweet Sorbet. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

To finish, three In Color Matte Decorative Dots are scattered across the project.

As with the other versions, this card is sentiment free and suitable for any occasion.

Saying Hello – In Color 2022-2024: Starry Sky

The third new In Color, in alphabetical order is Starry Sky.

Starry Sky. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Starry Sky is a lovely deep blue and as with the other colours, I have made a monochrome project in the same design.

Once again, it uses the In Color 6×6 DSP stack, this time the side with the stripe pattern. This stripe pattern is quite versatile as you can use the stripes vertically, horizontally and also at an angle.

Coordinating Metallic Woven Ribbon hides the join.

Starry Sky. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

The Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set provides the image, cut out with the matching Dragonflies Punch.

This has been given a coat of Wink of Stella that adds a touch of extra sparkle.

It sits on a hexagon cut using the Beautiful Shapes Dies.

Finally, In Color Matte Decorative Dots are added.

Starry Sky. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Like the previous two In Color projects, this is sentiment free, so it makes a great any occasion card. You can have a card like this in your emergency stash and either send it as it is, or add a sentiment.

Here is a quick reference of how this new colour compares to the other Stampin’ Up! colours.

Saying Hello – In Color 2022-2024: Parakeet Party

The next In Color I’m saying ‘hello’ to is Parakeet Party.

Parakeet Party. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

I think this is one of my favourites of the new In Colors from the new Annual Catalogue.

Following on from the Orchid Oasis project, here is another monochrome card in the same design.

I love using monochrome designs to show off a colour. You can see how vibrant and zingy this one is.

Again, this project uses the coordinating In Color DSP stack for the diagonal strip, following the pattern line for the angle.

Parakeet Party. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

The In Color Metallic Woven Ribbon hides the join.

A square, cut using the new Stylish Shapes Dies sits in a diamond shape, once again following the lines of the DSP.

This has a leaf from the Forever Fern Stamp Set cut out with the Greenery Dies sitting on top.

Finally, coordinating In Color Matte Decorative Dots are added.

Parakeet Party. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Being sentiment free, this card can be used for any occasion. It could also have a sentiment added just before it is sent.

Here is a quick reference of how this new colour compares to the other Stampin’ Up! colours.
