Continuing on with an overview of the new 2018-2020 In Colors, I want to introduce you to our third colour, the vibrant Pineapple Punch...

Pineapple Punch is a playful, sunny yellow that is clean and fresh.  This cool hue is more intense than So Saffron, but softer and less orange than Daffodil Delight or the more saturated Crushed Curry.  Pineapple Punch is a well-balanced yellow that is a welcome addition to our colour collection.

This card layout was inspired by the photographed project on page 19 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, and it compares Pineapple Punch with three other Stampin' Up! colours to help you get an understanding and appreciation for this bright new colour…

Abstract Impressions So Much To Love Card

This sunny card features lovely, stamped words from the Abstract Impressions stamp set, paired with a die-cut daisy flower from the Springtime Impressions Thinlit Dies.  Tucked in behind the stamped panel is the brilliant Pineapple Punch 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.  I love working with grosgrain ribbon as it's just soft enough to be pliable, but firm enough for bows and loops to have structure.  This narrow, go-with-anything ribbon is available in all the new 2018-2020 In Colors.

For this second project, I paired Pineapple Punch with the gorgeous Mango Melody, one of our new core colours.  But wait, there's more!  I there's a second new colour here too!  The words are stamped in Pacific Point and underneath is a wash of the pretty, new Balmy Blue…

This is one of the fabulous Mini Gable Boxes, which comes in Silver and Lustrous White.  This Lustrous White Mini Gable Box is similar to Shimmery White card stock and has a gorgeous sparkle to it.  You can use these boxes just as they are, or have the added option of colouring them.  I've added a wash of Pineapple Punch and Mango Melody inks along the bottom edge of my Mini Gable Box using the Aqua Painter.  I then finished the gift box with some additional splatters of Mango Melody ink.

Although the box material looks similar to Shimmery White card stock, it is not as robust and doesn't stand for much wetness before the fibres start to swell and deteriorate.  If you try this wash method to colour your Lustrous White Mini Gable Box, work quickly, don't repeatedly go over an area, and dry it with a Heat Tool as quickly as you can.

I added stamped and die-cut details to the front of the gift box using the Abstract Impressions stamp set and Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies, then finished the top with one of the pretty Blossoms Elements, which are petite resin flowers...
