Pretty In Pink CI32

Colour INKspiration is a fortnightly blog initiated by Bronwyn Eastley in Tasmania. The design team is made up of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all parts of Australia and New Zealand.You are at the blog of Rachel Palmieri, Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrator. I run classes at my home studio in South Morang, Victoria, share Stampin' Up!® products and tools at parties for my customers, coach my lovely team and create cards and the occasional 3D project.

I made 2 versions of cards with these colours, because I could see an image in my head but it wasn't transferring to paper in the same way. I imagined Version 2 would be my favourite as I generally like a clean & layered look, but I do rather like version 1 after all.


Version 1: Heat embossed gold jar and stamped some navy foliage. Decided it wasn't showing well enough, so die cut with a variety of dies, flowers and foliage in Navy or white. Layered up the sentiment on Navy and gold and added a gold sparkly bow. Sentiment is from All Things Thanks.


Version 2: Heat embossed gold jar at the same time as the first version. Stamped a single sprig of flowers and foliage. Used the Chalk marker to fill in some petals, and popped gold dots in amongst the stems. Sentiment is from Eastern Beauty and the flower stem is from Flourishing Phrases.

Even though the Crew are from the South Pacific Region, the challenge is an international one; so if you love all things Stampin’ Up! ®, please feel free to join in.  You don’t need a blog to enter. Click on the badge below to take you to our Facebook page –

  1. Both of your cards are great Rachel - heat embossing the jar is just gorgeous!! I love all the white foliage too - that's a great idea. They are both so lovely I can't pick a favourite!!

  2. OMG Rachel those jars in gold look stunning! Both designs are lovely but your fist card made me really go WOW

  3. Not one but two gorgeous cards, Rachael. So pleased that all those dies are sticking around.

  4. Both cards are beautiful, Rachel. I couldn't pick a favourite. I love how you have mixed the gold embellishments with gold embossing, super pretty.

  5. This made my smile Rachel! Love the gold embossed jar - genius use of the colours! Kelly x
