Welcome back to our Colour Creations Showcase as we continue our showcase of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alpha order.
This week we are showcasing Rococo Rose, a a soon to be retired 2019-21 In colour.
I guess you could call my card this week “an ode to some of my favourite retiring items”! That’s right, many of these beautiful products will be retiring soon and many are on sale at a discounted price right now.
I’ve really loved Rococo Rose as an In Colour and regret I haven’t used it more. For today’s card I’ve paired it with Pear Pizzaz, stamped at both full strength and also stamped off once – it’s such a soft and pretty pretty, dusky pink.
Beautiful Friendship is one of my favourite stamps because it is just so easy to make a card with this stamp set – it gives you a beautiful watercolour look. I also love the stamen stamps and the sentiments in this set – it’s retiring soon and on sale now.
For my card today I’ve stamped my flowers and leaves in Rococo Rose and Pear Pizzaz (using Memento Black for the stamens) then fussy cut them with my paper snips to layer them, but they also look gorgeous when stamped directly onto card stock.
The subtle embossing folder is probably the most versatile embossing folder I’ve ever owned and I’m really going to miss it when it retires soon. This close up photo shows you the incredible dimension it gives to my Basic White card stock layer – this really is an embossing folder that works with any card!
I was late to the party with purchasing the so Sentimental bundle but I’m so glad I did get this one. I’ve used it so much, especially the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
There’s so much to love about this bundle – the shapes of the dies, the stitching on the dies, the fonts on the the sentiments – but my favourite stamp and die from this bundle is the one I’ve used on my card today.
Last but not least, I just need to say that I’m so, so glad the linen thread is not retiring! This is my go to ribbon for any card and a simple bow of this thread is often the perfect finishing touch I need for a card.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created with Rococo Rose today!
