Pop of Pink Series – Card 1


Hello Stampers!

This is card 1 of a 4 part series using the new Pop of Pink Collection from Stampin’ Up!

This card uses a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base in Melon Mambo which has been stamped from top to bottom (also in Melon Mambo) using the Happy Birthday Sentiment from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.  The Melon Mambo Ink is slightly darker than the paper while still blending in which gives it a watermarked look.  Great for backgrounds!


I used a strip of Basic Black cardstock cut to 5 1/2 x 2 and covered it with the black and gold Pop of Pink Washi Tape.  This was aligned with the background sentiments.

The 3 Balloons were also created using white cardstock covered in Washi Tape then punched out with the Balloon Boquet punch.  Gold Thread was used for the balloon strings.


The sentiment is attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the card a little pop!  Once again using the same Happy Birthday sentiment as the background, this time in black.

This is a perfect card that is simple to create over and over again.  It can also be made in different colors, perfect for feminine as well as masculine cards!

Thanks for Stopping By!

Here’s a Sneak Peek of the new 2015-2017 In Colors!  They’re all delightfully bright and just in time for Summer!

So let’s take a deeper look at these wonderful colors!

Cucumber Crush

Cucumber Crush is a fabulous bright green.  It is slightly lighter than Garden Green and is a beautiful summer grass green color!

Delightful Dijon
Delightful Dijon is a warm dark yellow.  It is darker than Hello Honey and will make a great addition to a beautiful fall colored card.
Mint Macaron is a color that stands out by itself!  It’s very minty green and I can’t wait to use it for all those winter cards!
Tip Top Taupe
Tip Top Taupe is a wonderful addition to all of the Stampin’  Up! colors!  It’s a shade darker than Crumb Cake and is a beautiful new Neutral color.
Watermelon Wonder
I have to admit that I was a little sad that Strawberry Slush is being retired this year.  BUT the new Watermelon Wonder is a fantastic new color perfect for all your summer projects!  It’s just a little darker than Crisp Cantelope and slightly more pink, just like a watermelon!
Some other great items also come in the new In Colors!  Stampin’ Write Markers, Blossom Accents , and a brand new product……Envelope Paper!!!!
