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.

So what do you think? Like this shade of purple? Why not leave me a comment and let me what you think?

Crafting with Citrus Blooms at OnStage After Hours

I’ve been wanting to share this bundle with you, but unfortunately it got delayed. So today I’m going to share the lovely little cards that we were able to create during the event in Houston. While I didn’t choose this as my bundle for the event, one of my fellow table mates let me borrow hers.

So over the next few days I’ll be sharing these cards made with the Citrus Blooms Bundle (163295) with you along with how we made them.

This bundle is part of our Mediterranean Blooms Suite (163300). So without further delay here’s today’s card.

This card uses our Water Painters (151298) and our Fluid 100 5×7 Watercolor Paper (149612) to create this soft look. Add more ink to your wash for a bolder look if you prefer, the choice is up to you!

You’ll need the following supplies to make this card.


Paper & More


  • Basic White Thick Card stock: Cut 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″; scored at 4 1/4″
  • Petunia Pop Card stock: Cut 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″
  • Watercolor Paper: Cut (2) 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″
  • Basic White Card stock: Cut 2 1/2″ x 5/8″
  • Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack (white): Cut 12″
  • 2024-2026 In color Shimmer Gems (Pretty in Pink): 5 assorted


  1. stamp the small “diamond” image using Petunia Pop Classic Ink onto Petunia Pop panel randomly.
  2. Stamp the sentiment “hello” onto strip of Basic White Card stock using StazOn Ink Pad.
  3. Stamp orange image onto Watercolor Paper using Stazon Ink Pad. Repeat on second square.
  4. Using your Water Painter color the images using Lemon Lime Twist and Peach Pie Classic Ink. Allow to dry. (I like to use a clear block as a pallet for my water coloring – simply tap the ink pad onto the clear block to add ink rather than squeezing your ink pad and using the lid)
  5. Adhere the first water colored panel to the Petunia Pop panel tilted it to the left as shown.
  6. Wrap a piece of Baker’s Twine around the panel and tie into a bow. Adjust as desired.
  7. Using your Stampin’ Dimensionals add the second water colored panel to the card front, tilting it to the right.
  8. If needed adjust bow and trim ends of twine then adhere the layered panel to the card front.
  9. Using your Paper Snips trim the ends of the sentiment panel at an angle on both ends.
  10. Adhere sentiment to the card front.
  11. Add Pretty in Pink Shimmer Gems to the card front randomly using your Take Your Pick Tool.
  12. Stamp inside panel and envelope as desired.

That’s it. Then stop by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the second card that night.
