Welcome Rococo Rose!

I posted Clear Case Inserts for the 2019-2021 In Color range on Saturday and I asked you which In Color was your instant favourite and if you could guess mine.

Hands down, without hesitation, my favourite is Rococo Rose.  I have been asking for a colour in this tone for ….. well, ever!  Ever since I started using Stampin’ Up!  I’m so excited to welcome Rococo Rose and it’s 4 new friends to the range.

With a fresh pack of Rococo Rose in my hot little hands, it was the perfect choice for a custom 50th birthday card I was asked to make.  The brief was ‘pink’.  Rococo Rose is such an elegant pink!

I revisited a favourite card style of mine – making an updated version of a Pop Up Slider Card I shared in 2016 using the Jar of Love stamp set & dies.  Sadly, this duo retires very soon.  I’ve kept the jar, but added in some new products from my 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue preorder.  I love this time of the year where I can mix the old & the new to create fun projects!

I’ve used white heat embossing to stamp the mason jar on Rococo Rose cardstock and then cut it using the Everyday Jar dies.  Although retiring, I love mason jars as a card theme and plan to keep these to continue creating.  There’s no better vase on a card than a gorgeous jar!

The jar is filled with pretty magnolias – stamped on Shimmery White cardstock in Basic Gray and lightly washed over with Rococo Rose ink.  The magnolias are from a new stamp set called Good Morning Magnolia and has coordinating dies to cut those pretty flowers.

The leaves are from the Wonderful Floral die set (Occasions 2019) in Champagne Foil.  These dies are on Last Chance Retirement List and available until 3rd June 2019 – unless sold out earlier.

A lashing of Whisper White Bakers Twine finishes off my jar of flowers – which I have mounted on a layer of Whisper White embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Thankfully, the Subtle folder is on the carryover list and we’ll be enjoying it for at least another year.

This style of pop up card is one of my favourite fancy folds – simple to make but amazing to receive.  You can find the measurements here.

I’ve decorated the middle and the slider part of the card.  The slider has more magnolias (stamped in Rococo Rose) and the ‘enjoy your special day’ sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set.

I’ve added ’50’ in Champagne Foil to the middle of the card (revealed when the slider part of the card is pulled).  The Large Numbers retired with the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue (last year) but I’ve been using them ever since.  Retired Stampin’ Up! still holds enormous value.  Retired simply means you can no longer buy it – it doesn’t mean you can’t love & use it for eternity!  Some items are meant to be craft room staples.  This catalogue transition sees the Large Letters retiring.  See my post about that by clicking here.

This catalogue has a revamp of the DSP patterns available – including new designs for the In Color & Colour Collection DSP stacks.  They are sooooo beautiful!  Mosaic, words, gingham & diamonds.  That’s right…. gingham in every colour!

Want to own ALL the DSP???  Check back tomorrow for details of my DSP Share available for pre-order for Australian customers (demonstrators also welcome!).  DSP shares are a great way to own every DSP pattern at a fraction of the cost.


I think my second most favourite new In Color is Pretty Peacock.  I’ll have to get inky with that next!

Today at CTC, we’re CASEing our favourite bundle from the Annual Catalogue.

The variety from the team is great – and reflective of how different we all are.  Which makes it a great hop!

From here, you can either go back to see what Julia has made, or hop on to see Monique’s creations.

“Favourite” anything is always a challenge for me.  Who wants to choose just one of anything?

I know I drive Mr Papercraft insane when we go out for dinner.  I delightfully request (make him) that he orders something I like so we can share.  Who wants one awesome restaurant meal when you can have 2?

So… when it was another ‘favourite’ here at CTC, well…!!!  I love all bundles!

But, as I was trying to decide, this cute card caught my attention on the front cover.

Jar of Love and Everyday Jar framelits are definitely a favourite in my stash.  I just love the creativity they offer!


My CASEd verison of the card included a colour change, sentiment change and embossing folder change.

The overall layout and design was too good to change!!!

The catalogue is full of great tips & tricks – if you just look closely at the designs.

For this card, the original artist has layered stamped images with die cut images and added lots of texture.

I’ve done the same!
