Pals Blog Hop- New 2022-2024 In Colours

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is New 2022-2024 In Colours. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

OMG the new In Colours are amazing! I love each & every one of them. There was something familiar about them that I could not put my finger on until I started to photograph the samples for this blog post. Three of the colours are the colours of our new local NHL team, the Seattle Kraken! I hope you love the new In Colours as much as I do.

For my featured sample(s), I decided to go with simple 3″ x 3″ cards featuring each In Colour. Although the colours compliment each other & work well together, I wanted to show off each colour on its own. 3 x 3 cards are great to have on hand for a quick thank you or to send some cheer to help brighten someones day.

For additional information regarding the new 2022-2024 In Colours, please head to the bottom after the Pals Blog Hop links.

Step by Step Tutorial

– Begin with a 6″ x 3″ card base of thick Basic White card stock; scored at the 3″ using a Paper Trimmer

– Run the cardbase through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Stripes & Splatter 3D embossing folder (EF). Use the black line on the EF to help line up the card base. You only need to emboss the front of the card.

– Run a scrap piece of 2022-2024 In Colour 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the swirling circle die in the Painted Labels die set. So happy this set carried, again!

– On a scrap piece of Basic White card stock, stamp the sentiment from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set in the coordinating ink

– Run the stamped sentiment through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Sytlish Shapes circle die

– Adhere the stamped sentiment using Stampin’ Seal to the swirly circle. When gluing onto glitter paper, I like to use a stronger glue like the Stampin’ Seal.

– Adhere the swirly circle to the card base using dimensionals to give it a subtle pop off the card

– Add some “bling” using the new 2022-2024 In Colour Matte Decorative Dots

– For the final touch, adhere a scrap piece of 2022-2024 In Colour 6″ x 6″ Designers Series Paper (DSP) to an envelope flap using adhesive of choice (Tombow) then fussy cut.

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on June 8th. Our theme will be “CASE the Catalog” when our Design Team creates a project found in the new Annual Catalog and CASE it with their own creative twist.

Until then, have fun in your craft space!

Pals Blog Hop–Home for the Holidays Treat Bags

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Pals-Blog-Hop-275x275-1.png

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Home for the Holidays”. We really hope that you enjoy & are inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I am so ready to be “home for the holidays”. Due to 2020 Covid travel restrictions, we did not gather as a family last year; along with so many others who had altered holiday celebrations. This year, I am ready to gather & to be together!

For this month’s theme, I made a variety of fun treat bags filled with a Lindor chocolate treat. Because you cannot have enough chocolate, right? Let me know which treat bag is your favourite.

Step by Step Tutorial for the Treat Bag-


Start with a piece of DSP cut 4″x6″. On the 6″ side, I scored at 1 ¾, 2 ¾, 4 ½ & 5 ½ . Rotate clockwise then score at the 1″ mark. Burnish all the score lines with a bone folder.

On the 6″ side, cut up to the 1″ score lines. Cut off the right rectangle & discard. Miter the edges of the 1″ tabs & miter the edges on the 4″ side tab as well.

Apply Tombow liquid glue to the 4″ side tab, then fold over to seal & create the treat bag.

Glue the bottom flaps together using Tombow liquid glue. Use the fat end of a bone folder to help press the flaps together & give the bottom a good seal.

Once the glue is set, pinch the sides of the bag together, using the Take a Pick paper piercer tool, poke 2 holes for the ribbon. VERY IMPORTANT STEP- make sure you fill the bag with your treat of choice before tying the top closed with ribbon! Unless you love untying tiny knots…
