Spotlight on Nature & the In Colours for New at SU


new at su banner

Welcome to our May NEW AT SU! Blog Hop! We love to share creative ideas from Stampin' Up! with you. Today we have projects featuring the new 2024 - 2026 In Colours and some products from the new 2024/25 Annual Catalogue! I decided to use all the in colours for 5 separate cards with the same design, but a different In Colour each. I'm using the new Spotlight on Nature bundle, so pretty and such a great set of dies, that I'm sure we'll be using on an ongoing basis.

Here you can see the card design in all of the new In Colours for 2024 - 2026. The colours include Pretty in Pink, Peach Pie, Summer Splash, Petunia Pop, and Shy Shamrock, in the order you see them in the photo. They are such bright summery colours this time. Which one is your favourite? Here's how I made the card:

peach pie, petunia pop

  • I started with a cardstock base in which ever In Colour I was using, measuring 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". 
  • I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock, 5 1/4" x 4", and embossed it with the new So Swirly embossing folder.
  • I cut a piece of 2024-2026 In Colour DSP into 5" x 3" (so I could get two from 1 sheet) and I added it to the Basic White panel, as shown, using Tombo glue.
  • I cut a piece of ribbon in the coordinating In Colour, about 5 3/4" and stretched across the card front about 1" from the bottom, adhering the ends on the back on either side.

  • Adhere the whole Basic White layer to the card base. I used Tombo.
  • Die cut a circle using the largest Spotlight on Nature Eyelit Die and also a label using the smallest Deckled Rectangle die.
  • Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the flowers and butterfly images from the Spotlight on Nature stamp set on to the circle as shown. Stamp the sentiment and texture image on to the deckled rectangle label, as shown.
  • Use the appropriate colours of Stampin' Blends Combos to colour in the images and the Light Smoky Slate marker to out line them.
  • Add the circle  and label with dimensionals. Bling up your card with the 2024 - 2026 In Colour Shimmer Gems.
