Pretty Petunia Pop

I hope you are enjoying this weeks monochromatic cards using the 2024-2026 In Colors. I’ve already shared cards using the Shy Shamrock, Pretty in Pink, and Summer Splash. Today I’ll be sharing with you a fun purple called Petunia Pop. I was excited to see a purple shade included with this years In Colors as we can always use another shade and this one is quite lovely I thought when I saw it.

To start with today I’m going to share a card using the fun patterns found in the 2024-2026 In Color Designer Series Paper (163777) and the So Sincere Stamp set (162283).

The rectangle shape is repeated in the sentiment using our Deckled Rectangle Dies (159173) and gives the focal point a bit of texture too. A cute little flower that has been punched out using the Petal Park Builder Punch (160576) has some sponging around the outside petals and a cute little 2024-2026 In Color Shimmer Gems (163781) as the center in addition to scattered around the card front.

This next card uses the same little Petal Park Builder Punch (160576) as a cute little touch on this fun fold card to “hold: the corner down.

The fun little corner has been dry embossed using the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder (162189). A bit of Baker’s Twine Essential Pack (155475) has been tied around the banner that has been stamped using the Simply Said Mix & Match Stamp set (163756). Cute, right?

And if you need a card to just “check in” with a friend how about this next card using the Citrus Blooms Bundle (163295)?

Did you know this bundle is part of June’s Bundle Sale? You’ll want to be sure to check it out since it is part of a Suite, the Mediterranean Blooms Suite (163300) that is simply gorgeous!

And last but not least, a holiday card that just shimmers!

This card was created using the Sparkling Snowflakes stamp set (162158), 2024-2026 In Color Glimmer Specialty Paper (163771), and 2024-2026 In Color Shimmer Gems (163781). The soft Petunia Pop 3/8″ Bordered Ribbon (163785) adds some nice texture to the shimmering look.

Summer Splash

Are you longing for the clean clear water of your favorite summertime beach? The Summer Splash reminds me of those wonderful ocean views from my stays at Mini’s Haven on the Panama City Coast. I was immediately drawn to this color when I saw it and knew it would be one that I would reach for over and over again.

Today’s cards all use the Summer Splash to create monochromatic cards, this first one uses simple stamping. The card uses the Of Art & Texture (Online Exclusive 162687) and the Sweetly Scripted Stamp set (Online Exclusive 163600) to create a lovely congratulations card.

And how about this thank you card? Stamped using the Spotlight on Nature Stamp set (163579).

The card uses our 2024-2026 In Color Glimmer Specialty Paper (163771) and 2024-2026 In Color Designer Series Paper (163777) to add interest and of course the 2024-2026 In Color Shimmer Gems (163781) that were used on both of these cards are a must have with their beautiful iridescent shine.

How about a simple card with a lot of texture?

This card uses the Unbounded Love Bundle (163384) which is part of our Bundle Sale and the Dashing Designs 3D Embossing Folder (163483) to create some wonderful geometric texture as a back drop. The soft Summer Splash 3/8″ Bordered Ribbon (163786) add a bit more texture to the card.

Next I’ve got a super simple fun fold card for you. What makes it a fun fold is the simple scoring. This card base is 11″ x 4 1/4″ and it’s scored at the 2″ and 7 1/2″ marks rather than the traditional 5 1/2″.

It’s been decorated with the Eyelet 3D Embossing Folder (163414) and Basic Rhinestones Jewels (144220). The sentiment is from the Trust Tools Stamp Set (163274).

And the final card for the day uses the Wild Ferns Stamp set (162648)

Texture has been added to the background with a simple layered panel using the 2024-2026 In Color Designer Series Paper (163777) and then dry embossed using the Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder (161600). I love the die that has been used to wrap around the sentiment panel that was created with the Wild Ferns Dies (162654).

So what do you think? What does this color make you think of? Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think of when you see it? Then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing another of our wonderful 2024-2026 In Colors with you.

This next card uses a matchbook fold. The lovely Layered Florals 3D Embossing Folder (162935) is the highlight of this simple card. Again this card uses the Simply Said Mix & Match Stamp set (163756) and has been teamed up with a sentiment set of choice to create a feline birthday card.

And today’s last card uses the same Simply Said Mix & Match Stamp set (163756) and new Cute Crochet 3D Embossing Folder (163792) and Labeled with Love Punch. Prefer Dies? If so you’re in luck you can also choose the die version if you prefer.

Shy Shamrock

It’s a new week and I thought it would be a great time to share our NEW In Colors for 2024-2026. Have you seen them? These colors remind me of summer and are a fun addition to our core color collections. So each day this week I’ll be sharing some monochromatic cards with you highlighting one color per day.

Today it’s Shy Shamrock – the shades of summer with all those greens are now in place as the days grow longer and the temperatures rise. Shy Shamrock is a lovely shade of green, fresh, and clean and makes me things of those fields of grass and trees.

Today’s cards all use the NEW In Color Shy Shamrock to create lovely monochromatic cards.

This first card uses the color to create a lovely and using it’s name sake and creating a shamrock using the Adorning Hearts Hybrid Embossing Folder & Dies (162569)

A bit of ink has been brushed on using a Blending Brushes (153611 or 160518) and the Modern Oval Punch (Online Exclusive 162234) was used to pop up the sentiment found in the Something Fancy Stamp Set (160416).

The sentiment is from our NEW Unbounded Love Stamp set (163378) that is part of this months Bundle Sale and of course the 2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots (163389) were used once again on this card for a small pop of color on the sentient.

This next card once again uses the 2024-2026 In Color Designer Series Paper (163777) along with the sentiment and the lovely detailed frame from the Unbounded Love Bundle (163384).

A bit of texture was added with Petal Pink & White 1/4″ Diagonal Trim Combo Pack (163417) between the two strips of 2024-2026 In Color Designer Series Paper (163777). If you haven’t seen this ribbon already, it’s a great choice and since it is white you can customize it with color too.

Our final card today is a simple holiday card.

The 2024-2026 In Color Glimmer Specialty Paper (163771) has been used for the evergreen that has been die cut using the Merriest Trees Dies (162047).

Watercolor World

It’s June and that means graduations and celebrating a new chapter in life and celebrating new adventures. So today I’m sharing some cards that use the Watercolor World (160708) and some fun techniques.

This first card uses a quick and easy technique that adds multiple colors to a stamp. This is great for larger images like this world map image.

Using a Blending Brush or Sponge Dauber each of the colors Gorgeous Grpe, Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red have been added to the image. Breathing on the stamp to reactivate the ink and then stamping. Quick and easy, but wow it make a cool image, right? Next the sentiment has been stamped on a strip of Basic White where the ends were punched using the Happy Labels Pick a Punch (160693). The sentiment has been popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the card front and a few Basic Gray & Smoky Slate Pearls (163416) have been added below. A colorful way to celebrate that next chapter.

And this next card uses Heat Embossing to create a glossy map.

After the map has been stamped onto Smoky Slate Card stock VersaMark has been used to cover the whole panel and Basics Wow! Embossing Powder (165679) poured over the top. Our Heat Tool (129053) was used to heat the embossing powder and create a shinny look. Add your favorite sentient like this one used from the Beside Me stamp set (160780). Then add a bit of ribbon like the XX which adds a bit of sparkle and you have an understated elegant card like this one.

And finally this last card uses our Country Woods Designer Series Paper (163393) and simple stamping.

Stamped in Pecan Pie onto the Country Woods Designer Series Paper (163393) there is lots of texture and interest and a bit of Baker’s Twine Essential Pack (155475) added a bit more.
