Welcome to week 23 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Just Jade a mid teal green from the 2020-22 InColour collection.
Do you enjoy watercolouring? I find it very relaxing and I love the way Stampin’ Up! products make me feel like an artist! If you feel nervous about watercolouring have a go at making this card – it’s actually very easy to do and I just love the way watercolour turns out different every single time.
To make this card I used Shimmery White Cardstock, which is excellent for watercolouring, however you can use the Fluid 100 Watercolour paper if you prefer. Remember to always stamp your images for watercolouring using the Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad NOT the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.
You’ll also need the Water Painters and I like to use the acrylic blocks as my ink palette or you can simply lift ink off the lid of the ink pads. These are the colours I used to watercolour my card.
Using the two largest floral stamps from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set I stamped around the edge of my Shimmery White Cardstock and then water coloured the flowers in Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight, the leaves in Just Jade and the centre of the flowers in Mango Melody. I then used the Crumb Cake to watercolour the background space.
I didn’t want to cover up too much of my watercolour pattern so I kept the rest of the card quite simple, tying some linen thread around one side and into a bow and adding a small sentiment to the middle of the card. This sentiment is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed using white embossing powder.
It was only when writing this blog that I noticed my mistake – let’s just call it “artistic licence”! Can you see where I forgot to watercolour my card?
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Andrea Sargent – I can’t wait to see what Andrea has made this week!

Week 22 – Just Jade
Do you love making your own DSP? I certainly do and my card this week features a very simple DSP stamped in two of the new 2020-22 In Colors: Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider.
My card design and layout was inspired by a non Stampin’ Up! card I saw on Pinterest – I love how just two simple cuts with my Paper Trimmer bring a whole new level of interest to my card. This is a great layout to use up your DSP or you can make your own like I have done today, using the Peaceful Boughs stamp set.
After chopping my DSP I spaced it evenly onto a layer of Whisper White card stock and used white adhesive foam strips to adhere the DSP to the Whisper White card stock layer. I used one of the layering ovals dies to cut a window for the sentiment, which I stamped in Memento Ink.
To ensure the Gold Cord wrapped nicely around my card I added an extra layer of Whisper White on top of the card base, wrapped the cord around this layer and secured my Gold Cord to the back of this layer with sticky tape. Where the bow sits at the front of the card I used a mini glue dot to hold it in place. I could have also used the Just Jade ribbon, Linen thread or the Copper Grosgrain Ribbon from the Basket Weave and Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack.
I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have created with Just Jade today. Click on the links below to see what they’ve made.

I’m so excited to give you a sneak peek today of some new products that will be available to purchase from 3rd June: the Lovely You Bundle (Lovely You stamp set and Lovely Labels Pick a Punch), the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP and five brand new 2020-22 In Colours.
Let’s take a closer look at these in colours. I must admit my early favourite is Misty Moonlight – it’s a softer version of Night of Navy and it looks stunning with Seaside Spray
Each of my five cards feature one of the new in colours, co-ordinated matching DSP and topped with a layered sentiment punched out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, which is in a bundle with the Lovely Labels stamp set.
This amazing new punch that lets you punch out 6 different styles of punch in three different widths. I used it on the Mother’s Day card I shared with you here to create a double layered mount.
Because this punch gives you the option of 2 different scalloped ends each in 3 different widths and unlimited lengths you can create perfect layered sentiments for so many of our different punches.
For card one I punched out the sentiment in Misty Moonlight at 1 inch wide and layered it onto white card stock punched out with the Timeless label punch (made longer by threading the card stock in one end at a time).
The next colour is Bumblebee, with the white card stock punched out at 1 inch wide and the top layer in Bumblebee punched out with the different end of the punch at 3/4 of an inch. Because it punches only one end of the card stock at a time I could make it long enough to fit this sentiment.
Isn’t Just Jude just gorgeous! For this tiny sentiment I used the narrowest width strip of card stock (1/2 inch) in Just Jade layered on top of the 3/4 inch width in Whisper White.
Magenta Madness is very bright but it teams so well with Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride. Here I’ve used the 3/4 inch and the 1 inch widths in the two different designs for the “just because” sentiment.
Cinnamon Cider is last but definitely not least and like the Magenta Madness card I’ve used the 3/4 inch and the 1 inch widths to punch and layer my sentiment.
The beautiful DSP I’ve used on all my cards is called Flowers For Every Season and it features all the new in colours. There are 24 different patterns in this 6×6 pack of DSP!
Tomorrow I will be featuring another stamp set that is retiring from the 2019 Annual Catalogue and the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue, but in the meantime you can view all the retiring products in my online shop.
