Pineapple Punch

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.

Abstract Impressions So Much To Love Card

Bundles: Abstract Impressions Stamp Set + Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies (photopolymer: 148348).  Ink: Whisper White (101780).  Card/Paper: Crushed Curry (131288), Daffodil Delight (121680), Pineapple Punch (146994), So Saffron (108611), Whisper White (106549), Wood Textures 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (144177).  Accessories: Pineapple Punch 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (146953), White Stampin' Emboss Powder (109132).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Heat Tool (129056), Embossing Buddy (103083), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

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…

Abstract Impressions Mini Gable Box

Bundles: Abstract Impressions Stamp Set + Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies (photopolymer: 148348).  Ink: Pineapple Punch (147141), Mango Melody (147093), Balmy Blue (147105), Pacific Point (147098).  Card/Paper: Shimmery White (121717).  Accessories: Lustrous White Mini Gable Boxes (146961), Pineapple Punch 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (146953), Blossoms Elements (146330).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Tailored Tag Punch (145667), Heat Tool (129056), Aqua Painter (103954), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

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.

Abstract Impressions Mini Gable Box

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...

Lovely Lipstick

Continuing on with an overview of the new 2018-2020 In Colors, I want to introduce you to our second colour, the gorgeous Lovely Lipstick...

Lovely Lipstick is an intense red-heavy magenta that is rich and luscious.  This cool red has a touch of purple like Melon Mambo, but with more saturation.  Lovely Lipstick sits between red and pink with bluer undertones when compared to it's warmer Real Red cousin, but doesn't tend towards a fuchsia-purple like Berry Burst.

Varied Vases Blooms With Happiness Card

Stamps: Varied Vases (photopolymer: 146644).  Ink: Whisper White (101780).  Card/Paper: Berry Burst (144249), Melon Mambo (119980), Lovely Lipstick (146993), Real Red (121694), Wood Textures 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (144177).  Accessories: Tinted Faceted Buttons (146349), Silver Baker's Twine (145569), White Stampin' Emboss Powder (109132).  Tools: Heat Tool (129056), Embossing Buddy (103083), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

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

Varied Vases Blooms With Happiness Card | Berry Burst, Melon Mambo, Lovely Lipstick, Real Red, Whisper White

This sweet card features stamps from the Varied Vases stamp set and one of the pretty Tinted Faceted Buttons.  These translucent buttons come in three of the new 2018-2020 In Colors: Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, and this one, which is Lovely Lipstick threaded with Silver Baker's Twine...

This thank you card is the same layout and colours as the make-and-take from the Annual Catalogue Launch Party at the start of this month, but stepped-up with a touch more Wink of Stella to make all the flowers shimmer, a length of the pretty Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, and a fabulous textured card base.  It's not textured card stock, it's better than that!  It's Pool Party card stock embossed with the Subtle 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Grapefruit Grove

With every new Annual Catalogue there are five new, on-trend colours introduced to the Stampin' Up! palette, these are called the In Colors.  These colours are injected into our vocabulary to create new colour combinations and keep our creativity fresh.  From the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, I want to welcome one of the new 2018-2020 In Colors called Grapefruit Grove...

Grapefruit Grove is the subtlest of the new, brilliant 2018-2020 In Colors.  It is a yellowish-orangish-pinkish hue that could be best described as peach or apricot.  Grapefruit Grove is a dusty orange that is not as yellow or as intense as Pumpkin Pie and, although this pretty colour has pink undertones, it is cooler and less pink than Flirty Flamingo and less red than Calypso Coral.

Annual Catalogue Launch Party

I had a fabulous time with everyone last Friday at the Annual Catalogue Launch Parties.  All guests received a gift pack of goodies, there was hands-on exploration of new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue products, creative inspiration, participation in games, winning of prizes, and more!  Thank you everyone who came along; you made the day so much fun.
