Stampin' Up! Definitely Dahlia In Colors Card Set

Have you noticed a few peeks of the new Stampin' Up! In Colors in some of my recent projects? I've definitely been working them into the mix, but I've also created a set of greeting cards using each of the five new In Colors and the gorgeous Definitely Dahlia background stamp.

In addition, I created coordinating envelopes using the Envelope Punch Board and the new In Color Envelope Paper. This paper, which is also available in plain Neutrals, is thinner than Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, making it easier to work with when creating envelopes. The In Color Envelope Paper is solid on one side and printed on the other, making it perfect for creating a dressed up envelope.

If you're new to Stampin' Up!, each year they introduce a new In Color palette of five trendy colors that will be offered in the form of cardstock, ink pads, markers, ribbon, embellishments, and Designer Series Paper.

Each In Color palette is retired after two years, but there are two sets of In Colors available at any given time. The 2014-2016 In Colors are: Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, and Tangelo Twist. See them here.

Without further ado, here is my Definitely Dahlia Greeting Card Set featuring the new Stampin' Up! 2015-2017 In Colors.

Clean and simple Definitely Dahlia Watermelon Wonder embossed birthday card.

Watermelon Wonder Happy Birthday Card. Each of the cards in this set was stamped with the Definitely Dahlia background stamp using Classic Ink Pads and then quickly covered with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set. The result is a shiny beautiful bloom in the coordinating In Color. For a look at Watermelon Wonder embellishments and ribbon see this "For You" card.

Quick and easy Definitely Dahlia embossed thinking of you card in Stampin' Up! In Colors.

Tip Top Taupe Thinking of You Card. The clean and simple design of these cards makes them fast and fabulous, but the embossing adds a big wow. Tip Top Taupe is a wonderful gray/brown stone color that may become your favorite neutral. See my colorful birthday card using it as a neutral card base.

Fast and fabulous Mint Macaron embossed Definitely Dahlia graduation card.

Mint Macaron Graduation Card. The flagged banners on each of the cards were stamped with occasions/phrases from the Crazy About You stamp set using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed using White Stampin' Emboss Powder. See Mint Macaron paired with Night of Navy on this masculine birthday card.

TIP: Macarons are the little French almond meringue sandwich cookies with sweet filling that come in all flavors and colors of the rainbow. Not to be confused with macaroons, the almond/coconut mound of a cookie. Ooh La La.

Quick and easy Definitely Dahlia Delightful Dijon embossed miss you card.

Delightful Dijon Miss You Card. Fans of the retired More Mustard can rejoice! Delightful Dijon is more gold/brown than More Mustard, but you'll seriously want this color for fall projects. Please note what happens when you are in a hurry and your card falls over during the photo shoot: droopy Whisper White Baker's Twine. Hahaha! Never fear ... it's perky now.

Easy wow card: Cucumber Crush embossed Definitely Dahlia thank you card.

Cucumber Crush Thanks So Much Card. I created a cute little accent for each card using the flower punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

Alrighty! Time to pick a favorite In Color. You go first, because I've narrowed it down but can't decide between Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe, and Mint Macaron. Halp.

SO ... Let's summarize today's project.

A pretty set of greeting cards for various occasions?  Check.

Coordinating envelopes with a printed pattern on the inside?  Check.

Seems fairly complete, right?


How about a gift box to put them in and then wrap the box with gorgeous lace trim and a stunning dahlia embossed tag?


Guess what I made!

You'll just have to wait until tomorrow to see it. I think it's worth the wait. {wink}
