Canada Inks Up! Blog Hop - May 2021


Welcome to the Canada Inks Up! Team Blog Hop.  Today we are sharing some amazing projects featuring the new In Colors from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue! I hope you'll take some time to check out all of the amazing projects and "hop" from blog to blog!  

My card today features Polished Pink.  It surprises me how much I love Polished Pink as I'm not usually a "pink" person.  All of the new In Colors are amazing and I know that you're going to love them!

I used the Color & Contour Bundle for my card and created a pretty background as the centre piece of the card.  I love this bundle and particularly the great Scalloped Contour Rectangle Dies.  I use them for everything and I know you will too!


  1. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Polished Pink cardstock 3" x 5 1/2"
  3. Cut Basic White cardstock 2 3/4" x 5 1/2"
  4. Stamp flowers using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink randomly.
  5. Stamp inside of flowers using Polished Pink ink.
  6. Adhere to Polished Pink cardstock using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Cut piece of ribbon 4 1/2" long and adhere to the Polished Pink cardstock piece about 2" from bottom using Stampin' Seal on the back.
  8. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  9. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Basic White cardstock using Polished Pink ink
  10. Cut out using smallest Scalloped Contours Rectangle Die.
  11. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  12. Add In Colour Jewels.
