Sneak Peek – New Pineapple Stamp

Here’s the 2nd of my sneak peek projects showcasing the fabulous Pineapple stamp from the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue which will be released 1st June.

I created this card by gold embossing my smaller pineapples from the Pop of Paradise stamp set to create a rich background pattern. I then stamped my large pineapple using delightful dijon & cucumber crush. Before stamping the pineapple, I took sponge daubers to the back of the pineapple stamp and added some soft suede sponging to the body of the pineapple (over the delightful Dijon) and garden green sponging to various parts of the leaves (over the cucumber crush) to create some depth.

I splattered some gold wink of Stella over the card front and cut the stamped pineapple out before popping it up on dimensionals over some cucumber crush dotted lace ribbon and metallic gold washi tape and ribbon.  Finally I mounted my top panel to gold foil card and mounted this onto a rich razzleberry card base. I stamped my thank you sentiment from Pop of Paradise, fussy cut it out and finished with some pearls. I like the combination of the rich plum and gold with the stark contrast of the green against the fresh white background.  Would love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment xx

Stampin’ Up! New In Colours 2016-2018 & Pop of Paradise Stamp Set

So the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue goes live on 1st June and it will not disappoint let me tell you. There are some beautiful new stamp sets coming your way and I’ll be sharing a few projects using them in the coming weeks!  This is the first, and it showcases our brand new In Colours along with the new gorgeous Pop of Paradise stamp set! Here’s the card I created using this beautiful set:

This card features two of my favourite things: pineapples and flamingos! Don’t ask me why I love them, I just always have and apparently they are going to be BIG this season! All the new In Colours feature in the background pineapples here – flirty flamingo, emerald envy, peekaboo peach, dapper denim & sweet sugarplum. At first I wasn’t sure about them (I’m not one for change 😂)  but in actual fact they are beautiful and so summery.  I gold embossed the ‘thinking of you sentiment’ that comes in this Pop of Paradise stamp set and stamped and cut out my leaves. I then assembled them in the centre of my card front beneath the new gorgeous sweet sugarplum ruched ribbon and a mini gold foil doily. Finally, I placed my beautiful flirty flamingo flamingo (!) on top with dimensionals. I mounted my card front to gold foil cardstock and adhered this to my dapper denim card base.  Fun & Fabulous ❤️❤️❤️
