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!

See the original card by clicking here.

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!

Just Add Ink #451 | Inspiration

Hello!  It’s been a quiet week on the blog, so I’m excited to have snuck in some craft time to be able to share a Just Add Ink card with you.

It’s a photo inspiration challenge – chosen by Jo..   Does that photo make you want to drop everything and spend the morning (or day) sipping on tea at the cafe???

Image may contain: indoor

I pulled together elements from the card to make a peekaboo style birthday card.

It’s plain on the front – inspired by the Mint Macaron wooden windows and chalkboard menu…

And then opens up…

…. to reveal the birthday message!

I used magnets to help with a good close when flat.

The shimmery sentiment was achieved by using several inkings & the Stamparatus.  I first stamped the whole stamp in Blushing Bride.  Then I added Flirty Flamingo across the middle of the stamp with a sponge dauber and then Lovely Lipstick across the bottom before restamping on top of the Blushing Bride image.  And finally, I added Frost White Shimmer Paint directly to the stamp with a sponge dauber before stamping a third time.

This card was so much fun to make!  I’m not sure I’ve made anything previously with the Barn Door bundle, but it was perfect for my vision for the photo inspiration.


We’d love for you to join us over at the Just Add Ink blog.  Check out what the other design team members have made and add your own crafty project to the link up to enter the challenge.

See you for the next challenge!

Kelly’s Stamping Friends – Birthday Blog Hop B

No automatic alt text available.

Hello!  It’s my birthday and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than a blog hop with my fabulous stamping friends.

Actually, I’m feeling very loved on my birthday evening as I hop with two wonderful groups of stamping friends.

This is blog hop B – the second list.  There’s another thread which features blog hop A – the first list (click here to visit).  You don’t want to miss the creations on the other side!!!

There’s no theme for tonight.  Everyone is simply sharing with us something they’ve made that they love.  In this crazy busy life, we sometimes need an excuse just to create for fun, for love and to be creative.

My birthday falls at a wonderful time of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue cycle.  I get to spoil myself each year with new Stampin’ Up! and call them birthday presents.

Part of my present to myself was all the new Stampin’ Up! colours – In Colors, returning colours and new colours!!!  You can read all about the Colour Revamp here.

For the first time since they arrived, I had a play with the 2018-2020 In Colors.  Can you believe it – “2020”. I still remember when this was so far away!!!  I also remember Y2K (year 2000) and the technology panic!

The 2018-2020 In Colors are bright, fun and very on trend with the colours we’re currently seeing in fashion, home decor and advertising.

Stampin' Up! 2018-20 In Colors | kelly kent

Although none of the In Colors are specifically featured in the Garden Impressions DSP, they coordinate beautifully with the fun & bright patterns.  This was the starting point for my creations for blog hop B.

Garden Impressions DSP | kelly kent

I matched each In Color with a pattern from the DSP and then added in coordinating ombre colours.  I love cards with a monochrome/ombre palette!

I also added the Springtime Impressions Thinlits (that large gorgeous floral die cut & cute little flower) and a pretty stamp from the Stitched All Around stamp set.  BOth of these items are currently available (along with the Garden Impressions DSP) on demonstrator pre-order #demoperks #happybirthdaytome

Here’s each In Color and the colours I matched.  Can you spot some of the other new colours we’re welcoming in June?
