Wednesday’s WOW! #147 – Comparing the 2023-2025 In Colors.

You are probably quite familiar with the 2023-2025 In Colors by now. So I won’t go in to detail about each colour but today I thought I would share some comparisons with you to other Stampin’ Up! Colours.

I have 2 great resources for you.


As in past years I have put together a Colour Comparison Chart so you can see how they look with similar colours.

Here are the 2023-2025 In Colors.

I have to say I wasn’t sure about them. But I am slowly warming up to some. When I had my Catalogue Launch a few weeks ago everyone loved Wild Wheat. I must say it is a great shade that goes with so many other colours.

Here is the 2023-2025 In Color Comparison Chart.

It’s always interesting to see how they compare. Sometimes ever so slightly.

Be sure to save the In Color Chart image that is above so you have it for reference later.


Now if you would like a Color Coach Chart for the In Colors to help you when creating with them then you can download a chart. This chart helps you create with other colours using them.

You can Download it as a Photo version below or as a PDF further below.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is in-color-chart.jpg

Just click on the link below.

Hope you find these resources helpful when you come to create your projects with these In Colors.

Tell me though, what is your favourite new colour?

Happy Crafting,

Have you loved the projects I have shared this week with the Cheerful Daisies Bundle – and don’t forget the gorgeous paper.

If you have missed them just head back to the posts.

Today I have a special bonus for you. This one is a Cheerful Daisies Diecut Chart showing you the dies and how you can layer them.

I love how the different daisies can be used on their own or layer on to the larger daisy flower bunch for added dimension. Very clever!

And don’t miss the little parts you diecut out of the leaves in the large daisy bunch. They can layer on to the single leaf diecuts. Awesome!!

I hope you find this useful.

Here is the Cheerful Daises Bundle. The Stamps and the Dies. You can buy them as a bundle which saves 10% or you can buy them individually.

Do you need some Cheerful Daisies in your life? Or maybe any other of the lovely Stampin’ Up! Products?

Wednesday’s WOW! #146 – Countryside Inn and Countryside Blossoms partner together.

I was playing with the new Countryside Inn Suite. And did you know – the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder matches one of prints in the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper.

How clever! Now that is taking the Stampin’ Up! co-ordination to the next level right!

I thought I would show you the idea for our Wednesday’s WOW! Stamping tip today.


  • Cut your piece larger than the Embossing Folder so you can line it up exactly. It’s easy to trim it to size later.
  • When you position it in the Embossing Folder take your time to jiggle it around a little. There will be some points that won’t exactly line up but that’s ok they are not too far off.

Here is the finished card.

The sentiment is from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set and diecut with the label shape in the Cheerful Daisies Dies.

The leaves are punched with the Bough Punch and then some Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon added.

What do you think? Are you going to try this?

If you need any supplies and you are in Australia I would love to serve you.

You might have seen the gorgeous Elegant Borders Dies. They have such delicate edging to add to your cards.

You can add one edging BUT if you were to add 2 how do you line them up? Let me give you a little tip.

If the images aren’t loading I will add the descriptions below.

1. Make a mark in pencil at half way on each side of the card.

2. Line up the middle of the die with the mark.

3. Then diecut.

Hope this helps.

Here is the finished card. I used the retiring Art Gallery Stamp set. The retiring Two Tone Flora Designer Series Paper and the Elegant Borders Dies (part of the Online Exclusives).

I would love to help you grab any of these Stampin’ Up! products. See how you can order below.

I have a card to share with you that I shared creating on an Instagram Reel just recently. I thought I would share it with you here today.

This card uses the Irresistible Blooms Stamps and Dies and the Hello Irresistible Designer Series Paper. I have shared lots already with it. It is so gorgeous.

You can get a look of blending in the background of the circle using one of the prints in the Hello Irresistible Paper. You don’t have the mess with it.

What I particularly wanted to point out to you is the Scored lines. See them better in this image below top and bottom of the words.

To create the scored lines:

  • Stamp the sentiment. Measure the distance below the sentiment and above giving a little space either side.
  • Flip the card over. Using the Paper Trimmer and the Scoring Blade score a line near the bottom which would be below the sentiment.
  • Score higher up which should be just above the sentiment. Score another line just above that.

You can try a scored line vertically. Try a frame around the card. There are so many options. I hope you get to try one yourself.

The Irresistible Blooms Bundle and the Hello Irresistible Paper are part of the Online Exclusives available now.

There are so many lovely exclusive products.

The Online Exclusives can be viewed Online but can be ordered through my store or directly through me as with any of the other lovely products.

I have had more fun playing with the Around the Bend Bundle. I’m loving these stamps and dies.

Today’s project comes with a video with 9+ Tips in using this bundle when putting together this card.

The paper is the gorgeous Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper available for Sale-A-Bration. I love the pretty prints in this paper and I think it works so well.

Here is the card.

You can watch the video below especially look out for the 9+ Tips in using the dies and lining them up with the Stamps. I think you will find that helpful in putting the card together.

You can find the Around the Bend Bundle in my store -> HERE. And when you purchase them you could choose the Dainty Flowers Paper as your Sale-A-Bration pick. Or check the other choices out. There are some great ones and now there is some Catalogue products listed.

Wednesday’s WOW! #140 – Pearlized Dots.

This is so cool. You can create your own shiny, pearly dots or lines with the Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics.

See them below.

The Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics come in 3 little bottles (1oz or 29.5g each), in Red, Black and White lacquer.

With them you can create some really special elements for your projects.

  • Outline your stamped images to add some extra depth.
  • Add extra details like dots or lines.
  • Add detail to part of a stamped image or other embellishment piece.
  • Write words to give a “raised” effect.
  • Draw shapes like stars or hearts.

Here are some ideas how to use them.

Add little dots around the wreath to create little “berries”.

Add the white to the end of the Textural Elements or similar to make a shiny surface.

How would you use it?

A bonus this week is the Pearlized Enamel Effects is on the Weekly Deals. So you can get it at a discounted price of $24.30 for the 3 bottles. This price is only until Thursday though.

cards, Stampin' Up!, Sunday Suites


Sunday Suites today looking at the Lovely in Linen Suite Collection available in the Annual Catalogue.

This suite with the stamps and punch, Paper and Embossing Folder will create projects with a rustic style to a more elegant style. It’s a very versatile one.

The Lovely in Linen Suite Collection ($101.50 AUD) includes:

  • The lovely and Lasting Stamps and the Lasting Label Punch. Grab these individually but save 10% to get them together.
  • Lovely in Linen 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper.
  • Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Paper.

The sentiments in the Lovely and Lasting stamp set would be useful for many different occasions. The Lasting Label Punch has a very unique shape but is a good size that would work with many of your other sentiments.

The Lovely in Linen Designer Series Paper has intricate designs you can use for many of your projects. Colours in the paper are – Evening Evergreen, Night of Navy, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, Sweet Sorbet.

I think the star though is the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder. Don’t you love the intricate detail.

Check this idea out. Stamp your image and then run the card through your Emboss Machine with the embossing folder. It adds so much texture to your projects.

Now for some other samples.

This Lovely in Linen Suite and any other Stampin’ Up! products are available in my store.

Wednesday’s WOW! #135 – Diecut those paper images!

Stampin’ Up! are clever. A big appeal with Stampin’ Up! is the co-ordination and it is not just with the colours. The tools work with the other products too.

Have you noticed? Many dies available in a suite can be used to diecut the images on the Designer Series Paper. No snipping with scissors for many of these.

I discovered this with the Blossoming Happiness Dies on the flowers of the Hues Of Happiness Paper. And it is not just the larger flower. It is also with the smaller flowers and the leaves.

Check it out below.

I had started cutting these with scissors and then discovered this little gem so just had to share with you.

Have a happy Wednesday,
