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.

  1. What a beautiful card! I just love the color combination and the fun fold is one of my favorites. Thank you for joining the May blog hop!


  2. I love that you incorporated the leaves stamps in the new colors. Also, making your added center fold card able to stand. Cards that can’t stand are hard to display. I think we all want our beautiful cards to be on display once received by the recipient. Thanks sharing your colorful, beautiful card.
