Hello and welcome to this month’s New at SU blog hop where it’s all about the new Stampin’ Up! colours. We have a beautiful new range to play with including the 2023-2025 In-Colors and the new core colours from the colour refresh.
I’ve picked my favourite new In-Color, Pebbled Path, as my base and have added a couple of more In-Colors, Moody Mauve and Wild Wheat and a new core colour, Bubble Bath.
I generally start with one product and then work around it. For this project I chose the Earthen Textures bundle and began with an embossed piece of Basic White Cardstock using one of the detailed dies in the bundle. I then stamped over it with the script from the Gorgeously Made stamp set in Bubble Bath which created a fun background.
The vase was stamped in Pebbled Path on Basic White Cardsttock. Then I blended Wild Wheat over it, adding some detail with the Wild Wheat Stampin’ Blends.
I’ve used a small strip of the new White Center Specialty Paper which I’ve coloured with the Moody Mauve Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the leaves. What’s special about this cardstock is that when you rip it the core is white. This differs to our regular cardstock which is dyed right through with colour.
As my chosen colour was Pebbled Path, I really wanted to highlight it. I added a Nested Essentials die cut from the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper and a small strip of Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper which added a nice textured look. Some masking and layers of Pebbled Path Cardstock really show how pretty this colour is. I love it! Can you tell?

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop and this month we have a sketch to follow. You’re in for a treat this month. With the release of a new catalogue, I’m sure you’re going to see a range of beautiful new products and colours which are going to inspire you.
I’ve used some new and returning colours for my card.
For the base I embossed a Basic White card panel with the Cane Weave Embossing Folder. The Berry Burst Cardstock panel was distressed to form the curled edges.
On a sheet of Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper I stamped the text in Bubble Bath ink and added some embossing paste which was tinted with Bubble Bath ink refill. This was my first play with Bubble Bath and I really wasn’t sure whether it was a more mauve or pink colour. I felt the cardstock had a mauve look but the ink when I used it was more pink. On this card base it did come up pink and it could be picking up the colours around it too. Either way, it’s a very pretty colour and I love it!
A Blender Pen was used to shade the bird with Bubble Bath ink. I coloured the Petal Pink ribbon with Bubble Bath ink using a Blending Brush to coordinate.
Tonight at 7:30pm on YouTube I will share a version of this card. Make sure you check it out. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed what I’ve shared using our new colours. Please make sure you visit the rest of the team for great ideas on working with this sketch and more new products.

Hello and welcome to the New at SU Blog Hop. This month we are CASEing a project from the Stampin’ Up! January-April Mini catalogue.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO C.A.S.E.?
There are a couple of variations that I’ve heard. These being Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit. I’ve chosen a project on Page 68 from the Enjoy the Ride suite. I’ll be CASEing the layout of the card on the top right with the sentiment ‘Dad You’re the Coolest’.
You really don’t need Pinterest (ok, maybe you do sometimes!) when you’ve got a Stampin’ Up! catalogue in front of you. There is SO MUCH inspiration to be had. For instance, just in this one card, I could have chosen the colour palette, been inspired by an element such as the roses in the card or the background stamping, gone for a vintage look. Instead I went for my favourite, the sketch.
Here is a closer look at this card which I CASEd ….
……and I just went all girly with butterflies and flowers!
I replaced the stamped panel of bikes with 3 equal panels of Regency Park Designer Series Paper, matte onto 2 layers of Petal Pink Cardstock. A gingham label sits on top of Night of Navy ribbon in keeping with the original card.
A butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set coloured with Stampin’ Blends is the focal point in lieu of a jacket. This beautiful stamp set along with the coordinating dies are on our Last Chance sale right now.
The roses from the original card were replaced with some fussy cut flowers and leaves. I also added some die cut leaves from Basic White Cardstock around the butterfly. These were blended with Mint Macaron ink, creating a soft look.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting me here in Melbourne. I hope this has inspired you to flick through our catalogues and CASE those projects. If you would like a copy of the NEW catalogue, please request one HERE.

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop. This month we celebrate the start of our 4th year as a group and I want to thank Angie Mckenzie who puts in so much effort to organising everything and keeping us running smoothly. I love this group and am grateful to be part of such a beautiful community.
This month our theme is April Showers bring May flowers. Over in Melbourne we’re in Autumn so there are showers but not many flowers and it’s getting a little bit chilly.
We were given a double challenge to create something that reminds us of spring along with a technique. Didn’t matter that spring is gone, I still chose some spring colours and have followed the sketch at Sunday Stamps for my creation.
I started off by creating the 3 centre panels using the Emboss Resist technique.
EMBOSS RESIST PANEL
Using the Artistic Mix Decorative Mask, add Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana ink randomly with a Blending Brush. Use Lighter tones.
Stamp the 2 different leaves with Versamark ink over the entire panel
Add clear embossing powder
Melt embossing powder with Heat Tool
With Blending Brush, go over the entire panel in the same colours. Apply colours a little bit darker over embossed leaves.
Wipe back colour from embossed leaves with a paper wipe.
I used the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies to die cut the 3 panels and then matte it onto Kraft Cardstock.
The card base was covered with a layer of Vellum with a subtle leafy pattern. On this, I added the 3 small emboss resist panels which had been layered onto a long die cut piece from the Irresistible Blooms dies. This was then added to an embossed panel matte with the Naturally Gilded Designer Series Paper. For the strip of Textured Shimmer Paper, I used the Balmy Blue sheet and blended Coastal Cabana over it to coordinate with my colours.
The flower was stamped twice, fussy cut and layered with some heat embossed leaves and smaller Early Espresso Leaves die cut using the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies.
I had to include my favourite Linen Thread and some simple pearls to complete this spring blooms card.
Thank you for visiting me here in cool Melbourne. A full product list can be found at the bottom of this post. Please note that some of these products are on the Last Chance list and are available only while supplies last.

Hello and welcome to our New at SU blog hop for March. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator based in Melbourne, Australia. This month our theme is Spell it Out. We have quite a few alphabet stamps and dies in our range but I don’t own any of them. So I had to get a little extra creative for this project.
I chose the Love You More Dies to start off my creation with the word ‘summer’ popping into my head. This got me creating a scrapbook page which I could add some photos from our summer we just had. I cut several words from Calypso Coral cardstock and cut apart individual letters for ‘summer’. To create ‘Days’ I stamped and fussy cut letters from the Biggest Wish stamp set.
I’ve used 2 designs from the Delicate Dessert Designer Series Paper. The large panel on the left was blended with Old Olive ink to tone in with the rest of my project. The large wave from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set was stamped in Crumb Cake ink for some light texture on the base page together with some masking using Old Olive and Soft Succulent inks.
Palm trees were added for that beachy feel. I coordinated some White Frayed ribbon by colouring it with Old Olive and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends which added some textured detail to this page.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and please make sure you check out all the other inspiration in our hop today.

What a fun challenge we have for our Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop this month. To be fair, I think I say that every month but… this month, it’s more in-house with us playing along to our team’s favourite colours.
If you are new to this hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators sharing our love for papercrafting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. So sit back and enjoy your trip around the world.
Each of our team had to nominate our favourite colour and this is what our beautiful leader, Angie Mckenzie has put together. Don’t all the colours look so beautiful together?
So our project had to include at least three of these colours. We could choose from Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, Pale Papaya, Petal Pink, Rich Razzleberry, and Starry Sky.
Can you guess who picked which colour I picked?!? I’d have to guess too because I can’t remember! It would be a very close tie between Pool Party and Coastal Cabana and depending on my mood on the day it fluctuates. So I used them both on my project. In fact, I was able to incorporate quite a number while colouring this image.
I chose the In the Moment stamp set as today is International Women’s Day. This set has 3 images of women and is great for colouring in.
I started off by colouring the dress in Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends with some added detail using the Early Espresso Watercolour Pencil. The hat and belt were coloured in Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. The bench was coloured with some Natural Tone and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends with added details using Watercolour Pencils.
I die cut the image using the Stylish Shapes circle die then fussy cut around the girl. A second circle was die cut, on which I blended Pool Party ink with a Blending Brush. The image was then mounted on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I wanted to create a little beachy atmosphere on my card so I added the clouds and palm leaves which were die cut from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, Then I blended Bermuda Bay ink to add some gradation to it.
I used our new Irresistible Blooms stamp set to heat emboss the flower on Shimmery White Cardstock. Then I watercoloured it in Rich Razzleberry ink. I fussy cut the flower and layered it to create depth. This coordinated with my Rich Razzleberry wine glass coloured with Watercolour Pencils. I love being able to mix and match our various colouring mediums.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world. I hope you have been inspired by what I have shared. The products I have used are available in my Online Store and are listed at the bottom of this post. If I can help you with anything, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
