Colour Creations Blog Hop - Petunia Pop - Thoughtful Wishes


Hello and welcome my friends,

My name is Vicki Boucher and I'm from Melbourne, Australia. Today, I'll be sharing with you the next colour for Colour Creations blog hop and it's Week 2 with the Art With Heart Team in Australia. 

The next colour is Petunia Pop which is part of the In Color Collection for 2024 - 2026 Stampin' Up! sure know how to create some beautiful new colors for us to play with and they are here with us for the next two years. Now that's exciting!

All of the new In Colors come in a range of Stampin' Up! products such as ink, cardstock, ribbon, designer series paper, embellishments, Stampin' Blends and so on.

New colours means new Stampin' Up! products to try out from the new Stampin' Up! 2024 -2025 Annual Catalogue and I'll be showing you the Thoughtful Wishes bundle (163314) which is part of the Thoughtful Journey Suite Collection and you can find it on pages 46 to 47 in the catalogue. 

Thoughtful Wishes bundle (163314)

The Thoughtful Wishes bundle includes the Thoughtful Wishes stamp set and Thoughtful Wishes dies. This is my first time using this bundle and I love it! Especially all of the delicate foliage pieces from the Thoughtful Wishes Dies and I decided to create an artfully avid card which I love to do.

When I first saw all of the In Colors for 2024 to 2026 Petunia Pop was at the top of my list with the In Colors. It's so pretty! I've used it with Bubble Bath and Crumb Cake which I really like this combination together. 

I've die-cut out a number of images from Thoughtful Wishes Dies using Bubble Bath and Petunia Pop Cardstock. I also added Petunia Pop 2024-2026 In Color Glimmer Specialty Paper (163771) and used the delicate die to add some sparkle to my card. To change the image up, I simply used the Paper Snips to cut the image in half before layering it over the other images.

For extra bling, I added some of the leftover Petunia Pop glimmer die-cut pieces from the delicate die and placed them under the daisy. 

This layout is a favourite of mine which I've used in my cards in the past and I do like to CASE my own cards when I'm short for time in card making. I used a half strip of Crumb Cake Cardstock, stamped the splattered stamp image a number of times in Petunia Pop ink onto the strip and lightly added Petunia Pop ink to the edge of the cardstock with the Blending Brush. Next, I tore the edge of the cardstock by using my fingers to expose some of the Crumb Cake cardstock and for some added texture.

I wanted a large flower image, so I decided to go to my all-time favourite Cheerful Daisies Stamp Set and stamp the large daisy in Petunia Pop onto Bubble Bath cardstock and then die-cut out the daisy. I was so happy to see this stamp set and dies carried over into the new Stampin' Up! catalogue.

I added lots of threads from the Petunia Pop Bordered Ribbon (163785) to give the card some fun details and tied a bow using Linen Thread to finish off the card.

  1. Beautiful card! What a grea idea to use the pieces of glitter paper that would usually get thrown away.

  2. Bubble Bath and Petunia Pop look so pretty together, Vicki. I love the addition of Petunia Pop glimmery die-cuts to your design - gorgeous!

    Such a pretty card Vicki and isn't that suite of products just beautiful? I love all the glimmery pops as well as the threads of the Petunia Pop ribbon.

  4. Gorgeous card Vicki! I love the frayed ribbon and speckles on the Crumb cake. Glad that you added the daisy to your arrangement, its perfect.

  5. Vicki I love the inclusion of the daisy diecuts with the foliage from the Thoughtful Wishes bundle. The Crumb Cake makes a lovely base on which to build your floral arrangement. Love the frayed ribbon too as it adds so much texture.

  6. What a beautifuil card, Vicki. All those gorgeous layers and the glimmer paper and the strands of the ribbon, all add amazing detail. Bubble Bath sure does coordinate well with Petunia Pop too!

  7. The use of the "extra" bits that are usually waste is amazing and I love how you use ribbon.
