Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have a sneak peek of some of the new 2022 – 2024 In Colors today in the Hello card I made with the Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms cling stamp set. I love the bold stamped flower images in this set and they look great with the new In Colors! You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a sketch this week and here is the pretty sketch we are using:

I adhered a panel of the new Sweet Sorbet In Color 6″ x 6″ designer series paper (available May 3) to the front of a Sweet Sorbet card base. I cut a basic white panel with the second largest scalloped rectangle from the scalloped contours dies. I stamped the long leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms stamp set three times in the new In Color Parakeet Party ink (available May 3) on the scalloped rectangle. I stamped the double leaves in Garden Green on each side.

I applied a small strip of Stampin’ Seal in the middle of the panel and looped a length of Poppy Parade and white baker’s twine around the panel. I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms stamp set in the new In Colors – one in Sweet Sorbet and the other in Tahitian Tide (both available on May 3). I fussy cut the flowers and adhered them to the panel with dimensionals over the baker’s twine.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms stamp set in Versamark ink on Basic Black and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess powder and heated the sentiment with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut out the sentiment with the small banner die from the new Stylish Shapes dies (available May 3) and adhered it over the panel flowers with glue dots and dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals and finished it with small Black Matte Dots.

For the inside, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms stamp set in Sweet Sorbet in the bottom corner of a Basic White panel. I covered it with a mask and stamped the long leaf spring in Parakeet Party. I adhered a strip of Sweet Sorbet DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The new In Colors are bold and bright and fun. The Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms stamp set perfectly capture the excitement of the new colors! I compared the new Sweet Sorbet card stock with the other reds in the Stampin’ Up! color families so you can see the differences. I initially thought it would be more pink, but it’s really just a light red and goes well with both Real Red and Poppy Parade. All the new In Colors will be available when the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog goes live on May 3!
