Stampin' Up! Parakeet Party


Welcome to Week 2 of the new Colour Creations Blog Hop for 2022-2023. This week we are featuring another of the new In Colours and this time it is Parakeet Party which is a vibrant lime green colour. 


I have chosen to team up Parakeet Party with a couple of purples, namely Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather and have also decided to show some love to the Art Gallery bundle once again. 

I started by stamping one of the flower images using Highland Heather and then stamped the contrast image using Gorgeous Grape. I then die cut this using the corresponding die. The stem and leaf image has been stamped using Parakeet Party and also die cut with the corresponding die. These die cuts have then been propped on a piece of Basic White cardstock that has been embossed using the Painted Texture folder. For a bit of contrast I have also added a Wink of Stella for a highlight on the petals which you can see a bit better in the photo below.

The Basic White panel has also been mounted on a piece of the new In Colour Designer Series Paper. Finally I have added a small bow that has been tied using the new In Colour Bakers Twine and I have added a couple of new In Colour Matt Decorative Dots. 

Next in tonight's blog hop is the lovely Ros Davidson. I am sure as always she will create a beautiful card.  

 If the "next" button link is not working or you would like to see a full list of participants then you can hop over to  Cathy Proctor's blog where you can see a full list of tonight's participants.

Don't forget to pop back next week when our feature colour will be another of the new In Colours, Starry Sky.

  1. Lovely card Theresa and the purple inks pair perfectly with this green. Love those matte decorative dots.

  2. Purple and green are always a winner in my books and your card is just lovely, Theresa. Love the texture of the embossing folder and the wink of stella for extra shimmer too.

  3. Your bloom is lovely, and I agree with Rosa that these purples pair perfectly with Parakeet Party (say that three times, fast! LOL).

    A beautiful card Theresa. The Art Gallery bundle with the Painted Texture EF is always a winner and your colour combo with Parakeet Party is delightful. Xxx

  5. What a beautiful colour combination. This is such a lovely card, my friend. I'm a huge fan of that DSP (and I've used the same EF on my card!). All the elements on your card are just beautifully put together.

  6. I love this colour combo! This is a gorgeous card, with a simple design but a lovely impact.

  7. Yes, greens and purples are a match made in heaven! A gorgeous card with lovely texture.

  8. What a lovely card Theresa and I just love the colour that you chose to go with the Parakeet Party. Purple and green so good together. I do love this stamp set and the embossing behind is great! Gorgeous Card!

  9. Great colour combination, green and purple. Love the texture with the embossing folder in the background.
