2024-26 In Colors – Pretty in Pink Card  

2024-26 In Colors – Pretty in Pink Card  

Welcome to week three of our Art With Heart 2024-25 Colour Creations blog hop!

Today we’re featuring another of the new 2024-26 In Colors: Pretty in Pink. I’ve created this graphic to show how Pretty in Pink compares to the current pinks in the Stampin Up! colour range.

This week’s card continues the Country Woods Suite theme. My Pretty in Pink card uses the Country Flowers bundle to create a flower market scene backed by a layer of Country Lace DSP.

I’ve CASED this card from page 48 of the Annual Catalogue. I loved the white painted tips of the milking stool, created with Pecan Pie light and dark Stampin’ Blends.

My version of this card has a colour scheme theat pairs Pretty in Pink with Granny Apple Green and a mix of neutrals: Basic Black, Basic White, Pecan Pie and Smoky Slate. I’ve also used the Country Lace DSP instead of an embossed cardstock layer.

Stampin’ Blends are the secret to creating dimension on the flower market tin container and the Pretty in Pink teapot. The Stampin’ Blends Colour Lifter pulls colour from images I’ve coloured with Stampin’ Blends markers to create additional highlights and dimension.

Blending the Pretty in Pink, Granny Apple Green and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends makes it easy to create colourful pink and green variegated plants too.

The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Country Birdhouse stamp set, die cut out using an online exclusive die: Happy Little Things Dies. I then adhered the die cut sentiment to a strip of Smoky slate cardstock and used my paper snips to trim the ends to match the die cut.

Now it’s time to hop in over to our next participant, the lovely Andrea Sargent – I can’t wait to see what Andrea has made this week!

Country Woods Suite Mother’s Day Card  

Country Woods Suite Mother’s Day Card  

The Country Woods Suite is hands down my favourite suite in the new catalogue so it was a no brainer to use it to make a Mother’s Day card for my mum.

However, as Mum reads my blog I couldn’t post this card until after we had our Mother’s Day get together at my place last night!

I’ve used the Country Woods Designer Series Paper, the Country Lace Designer Series Paper, the Country Birdhouse Dies and the Country Flowers Dies to create a sweet country collage scene of a bunch of flowers sitting on the edge of a wooden table.

I thought the Smoky Slate striped pattern from the Country Lace Designer Series Paper looked like wallpaper and the dark Early Espresso wood pattern from the Country Woods Designer Series Paper would be perfect for the table. So this stunning DSP was the starting point for my design.

Mum loves blues, especially Misty Moonlight, so I cut the jug that holds the flowers from another DSP pattern in the Country Lace. I also cut a cute little teapot with a lid and then decided not to use the teapot on this card – I’ll save it for another card.

The sweet little Petal Pink flowers are also die cut from the Country Lace Designer Series Paper using Country Flowers Dies. To make the green leaves I randomly coloured Basic White cardstock using Mossy Meadow Stampin Blends in light and dark before die cutting them out.

The “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment comes from the Sentimental Rose Kit, stamped in Early Espresso onto another wood DSP design in the Country Woods DSP.

I used two of the roof dies from the Country Birdhouse dies to create a picture frame for the sentiment. And the hanging bow die from the Country Birdhouse dies to add a bow of ribbon to the vase.

Neutrals Adhesive-Backed Sequins add the final touch of bling!

I’ll be back on Wednesday night with the AWH Colour Creations team showcasing one of the new 2024 -26 In Colours, Pretty in Pink. I hope you can join me then.
