Here's our amazing Creativity Abounds Design Team! 

This month we're sharing projects featuring the 2023-2025 In Colors from Stampin' Up!  I'm in love with these colours and some of the colour combinations that I would have never thought of using!  I created a Pop Up Pocket card using Pebbled Path and Moody Mauve.  So fun!


  1. Cut Pebbled Path cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 1 3/4" and 7 1/4" along long side.  Fold and burnish on scorelines using Bone Folder to form card base.  
  2. Cut Basic White cardstock 3 1/4" x 3 3/4" and adhere to top flap
  3. Cut Designer Series Paper 3" x 3 1/2" and adhere to top flap
  4. Cut Designer Series Paper 1 1/2" x 4"
  5. Adhere to bottom flap
  6. Cut Designer Series Paper 3 1/4" x 7" and score at 1/2" and 5 3/8"
  7. Add Tear & Tape to the 1/2" flap.
  8. Light up the edge of the DSP with the top scoreline in the inside of the card.  Fold the top flap down on the adhesive.
  9. Fold the bottom flap upwards on the DSP
  10. Add Tear & Tape Adhesive strips to each edge of the card base along the sides of the bottom flap.
  11. Adhere bottom flap to the card base.
  12. Tuck bottom pocket into flap
  13. Cut sprig from Moody Mauve cardstock
  14. Cut label using Die from Basic White cardstock
  15. Stamp sentiment using Moody Mauve ink
  16. Adhere sprig behind sentimemnt
  17. Stamp flower using Moody Mauve ink and leaf using Pebbled Path ink on Basic White cardstock.
  18. Cut out using Die
  19. Adhere behind label
  20. Adhere to top flap of card using Dimensionals
  21. Adhere In Color Dots
  22. Wrap ribbon around bottom flap so that it overlaps the top flap.
  23. Adhere down.
