See the 2024 – 2026 In Colors and Delicate Forest Set!

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing the 2024 – 2026 In Colors and some simple, gorgeous cards made with the Delicate Forest Stamp Set! These projects were shared in my recent YouTube live as part of my 21st Anniversary festivities. Make sure to check out the “More Going On Now” Section later in this post for a FREE Anniversary GIFT and some DEEP discount offers.

Each year on my anniversary I like to find a card made early in my career as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and remake it with new products and colors. I call this a “Rewind/Redo” project and I like to do it as a way to take stock of how far I’ve come as a paper crafter. What you see below is a photo of a project made in my first year as a demonstrator (left), and one of the my “Redo” designs (right). I love both of these cards!

For the new card design I used the tree image from the Delicate Forest Stamp Set. It’s much taller than the image used on the original card so I decided to reorient the card to be in the portrait, instead of the, landscape orientation.

This first card features Pretty In Pink cardstock, one of the NEW 2024 – 2026 In Colors.

This is also a returning color from the Subtles Collection. Isn’t the pink and black color scheme so striking!? I love it!

The trees are heat embossed in black and the ground was created using both stamping in black and heat embossing in black.

I used Versamark Ink to get some tone on tone color on these cards. I have not yet received my NEW 2024 – 2026 In-Color ink pads from my preorder. Can’t wait!

This next card features Peach Pie cardstock, another one of the NEW 2024 – 2026 In Colors. I created this card live on YouTube.

You’ll find this video at the end of this post in case you want to see all the steps for creating this card.

Here are a couple of closeups of this version. My tree on the right side ended up being really short! Stamping on camera is a bit harder that stamping without a camera in the way! LOL! As I said during the live, trees are usually not all the same height in real life anyway, so it’s all good right?!

The funny thing is this short tree almost looks like a shrub instead of a tree! LOL! It could be fun to intentionally use this image for a row of shrubs! So, my little “mistake” could instead be seen as a happy accident because I stumbled on a new way to think about how I could use this image. Food for thought right?

This last card features Shy Shamrock cardstock, another one of the NEW 2024 – 2026 In Colors.

For all three of these cards I’ve used the Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems which come in two sizes and three colors. I love these versatile gems!

The sentiments come from the Delicate Forest Stamp Set.

Check out the additional card in the photo below!

It’s in the lower left hand corner of this photo and truth be told it’s the first card I made in this set. This additional card features Parakeet Party cardstock which is one of the retiring 2022 – 2024 In Colors. Check out these retiring colors by clicking HERE and you’ll see the five ink pads in that set. There are also ink refills, cardstock, ribbon and more in these gorgeous outgoing colors! Stock up on these products before they’re gone!
