Stampin' Up! Summer Splash


Welcome to a Week 5 of the Colour Creations Showcase blog hop. This week we end our journey through the New In Colours for 2024-26 Stampin' Up!, working in alphabetical order. This week our feature colour is  the Summer Splash. A lovely blue green that sits between Lost Lagoon and Coastal Cabana on the Stampin' Up! Colour Wheel.

 This week the focus bundle is Layering Leaves which rather than dies comes with a coordinating punch. The bundle was also in last year's Annual Catalogue but has sat in my cupboard barely touched. Along with White Summer Splash has been coordinated with a touch of Calypso Coral and Copper.

To start with sprigs of leaves from Layering Leaves were embossed using Copper and then coloured using Summer Splash and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends. The coordinating Bough punch were used to cut them out along with a couple of smaller sprigs using Summer Splash card. 

The pots were created using the 2 3/8ths circle punch and then cut in half. One pot using In Colour Designer Series Paper in Summer Splash and the other using the Sketched Plaid stamp, white card and Summer Splash ink.



This has all been adhered to a white card base that has been embossed using the Exposed Brick 3D embossing folder.

The sentiment also from Layering Leaves has been stamped in Summer Splash on white card and then die cut using one of the Stylish Shapes dies.

Finally a bow using white 1/4" Diagonal Trim ribbon from the combo pack with Petal Pink, and a couple of Copper Adhesive Backed Metallic Gems have been added. 

For the card inside I have added a few of the leftover sprigs, that have been embossed in copper and coloured.

Next in tonight's blog hop is the talented Vicki Boucher. I look forward to seeing her beautiful creation this week.

    Beautiful card Theresa, the copper embossing look lovely with Summer Splash

  2. Teresa I love your choice of pairing Summer Splash and Copper together, an awesome combination! With these colours and the white brick embossed panel it results in a very fresh-looking card.

  3. A beautiful card Theresa. I love your colour combo combining Calypso Coral and Copper with Summer Splash and Basic White. It’s gorgeous. Your half punched circle “pots” look brilliant with the Layering Leaves. Love the “pot” that was stamped with the Sketched Plaid design too. xxx

  4. Theresa your colour combination of Summer Splash, Calypso Coral and Copper looks amazing. I loved your half punched circle pots too.

  5. Ooh, I love the addition of Copper to your card - it's so pretty with Summer Splash. The flowers pots look fantastic.

  6. What a great way to create the pots for your plants, Theresa. That font of the sentiment is so pretty and I love the copper!

  7. Summer Splash and Copper together - wow! I never would have thought to pair them, but what a striking combination. I love these colours with all the white, too. The sentiment (both font and size) looks beautiful in the die-cut circle. Lots of lovely details!

  8. I love this colour combination it's so pretty with this stamp set. Gorgeous card.

  9. Lovely card, Theresa. Layering Leaves is great for foliage and the copper embossing is a lovely detail.

  10. Apart from the odd greeting I haven't used my Layering Leaves bundle either Theresa. Your wonderful card has inspired me to dig it out.

  11. Great colour pairing, the copper with the summer splash.
