June Paper Pumpkin Kit: Expressions in COLOR~

Dream and discover In Color! With the Expressions In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit, you’ll be introduced to our intriguing collection of In Colors for 2021–2023—and, you’ll find a familiar shade from our 2020–2022 In Color selection. This month’s ink-credible kit contains enough elements to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—including ink-stained paper pieces, an exclusive stamp set, and not one, but two Classic Stampin’ Spots! And, it all comes in a cute, colorful, and collectible box.

What are In Colors, anyway? In Colors consist of a limited-edition collection of colors. We come up with a new collection every year, and we release it around the same time as the release of our annual catalog! In each In Color collection, we’ll offer ink, paper, markers, and more. The catch? They’re only available to purchase for a period of two years, so stock up on your favorite In Color supplies while you can! Click below to enjoy this video!

With the Expressions In Color kit, you can explore and experiment with our 2020–2022 and 2021–2023 In Color collections. Make a splash with awe-inspiring, ink-stained artistry!

If you’re already a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you and I can wait with anticipation for our new kits to arrive. If you’ve never tried Paper Pumpkin, this would be a GREAT month to give it a try! Each month you receive a kit with all the supplies needed to make beautiful projects — have some CREATIVE ME time for yourself. You’ll love it! The kits are only $22, and that includes shipping!

Nothing to lose — you can skip a month, suspend your subscription, or cancel anytime at no cost. It’s that simple! Join by clicking HERE, and your June kit will be arriving on about the 20th of the month. You MUST subscribe by the 10th of June to receive the beautiful Expressions in Color kit!

Pals May Blog Hop: 2021-2023 New In-Colors!

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “2021-2023 New In-Colors.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Then, at the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I adore the new 2021-23 In Colors from Stampin’ Up! They might be my favorite group ever! I chose to create a card focusing on the new Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent, as well as Misty Moonlight, a beautiful, rich gray-blue. This project features the new Hand-Penned Petals photopolymer stamp set and the gorgeous coordinating Designer Series Paper. I am in love with the color combinations!

I started out with a card base of Pale Papaya, measuring 11 X 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2.” I then took a 3/4″ cut at the card fold on both sides. Then I cut up from the bottom to create a front card flap.

Here are the measurements of the additional front panels: Misty Moonlight: 2 1/2″ by 5 1/4,” Basic White: 2 1/4″ by 5.”

On the Basic White panel, I stamped a number of leaves in Misty Moonlight, Soft Succulent, and Pale Papaya, stamping off on some of the images, to create a background of soft leaf images. I wrapped a length of 3/8″ Pale Papaya ribbon around the two panels before adhering them to the Pale Papaya card front. I tied a separate bow and adhered it to the front with a glue dot.

I stamped a sentiment image from the Love of Leaves onto a scrap of Basic White, and then cut it out using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. I stamped a small flower and leaf from the stamp set, and then fussy cut them. I popped them onto the front, and then added a couple of Genial Gems. I colored the front flower with some Wink of Stella to finish it off!

The inside of the card is simply two small strips of Hand Penned DSP at 3/4″ by 5 1/4,” adhered to the sides, with a panel of Basic White 2 1/2″ by 5 1/4″ in the middle.

I hope you liked my project. All the products used to create this card can be found below.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on June 9th with “Fun Ways to Use Your Stampin’ Up! Products.” Participants showcase at least one of their favorite product tips. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.
