AWH Colour Creations - Petunia Pop

It's week 2 of our 2024-2025 Round of the Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart stamping team.

This week we have a beautiful dark pink with a leaning towards purple - a cool pink rather than a warm toned reddish pink, with the wonderful happy name of Petunia Pop.

I embraced this colour at our Stampin' Up! On Stage (convention) After Dark stamping class, making two cards on the night, and I loved the colour combination so much, I decided to use them as inspiration for this weeks project.

Here are the cards I made at On Stage in MarchAfter Dark Stamping On Stage cards
And here is the colour combination.

I just love the floral images with these colours, especially the little snippets of rose bouquets stamped in Petunia Pop ink on Petunia Pop card. Here's a close up of that first card :Country Flowers Petunia Pop card detail

So when it came to creating this week's project, I chose all the same colours and I selected the Layers of Beauty bundle from page 57 of our new catalogue, because I felt I MUST have roses, and I wanted to have a play with those lovely new Decorative Masks.    Layers of Beauty Petunia Pop Z-fold card d
This week I made a fairly simple basic Z-fold card, with a large die cut on the front.

My layers were made using paper from the 2024-2026 In Colour 6"x 6" Designer Series Paper Assortment, which gave me Petunia Pop, Pretty in Pink and Peach Pie horizontal stripes, inspired by the card on page 57  of the catalogue with the Old Olive stripes.    Layers of Beauty Petunia Pop Z-fold card detail
The large rose image was stamped in Petunia Pop Ink, then I used Blending Brushes to apply Petunia Pop and Granny Apple Green inks only, for all 5 layers of colour on the rose image.

The image was then die-cut and mounted on the card front with Dimensionals.

Finally, half a dozen of the 2024-2026 In Colour Shimmer Gems (page 114-115) were added to give a touch of bling.

Ooh, I love how your colour choices have made Petunia Pop seem light and bright. I thought it was a much more moody colour! It's a gorgeous card.


Petunia Pop is such a gorgeous colour, and is perfect for roses, Kathryn. Lovely card!

Andrea Sargent

A gorgeous card Kathryn. I love your Z-fold with the layers of different in colour striped DSPs. Your Layers of Beauty roses are a wonderful focal image. Beautiful xxx

Theresa Gerrard

Such a pretty fancy fold card Kathryn and the colours and papers you have chosen help feature Petunia Pop beautifully.

Rachel Palmieri

What a dynamic colour scheme Kathryn! Love this Z-card and the roses are gorgeous!

Catherine Proctor

Wow, Kathryn, I love the vibrancy of your stunning card! The use of the horizontal striped DSP in different colours really adds to the impact too. Love your roses and the colour combination.

Michele Taylor

Kathryn I love both of your cards but the Z Fold is a triumph. I love the way you have used the same DSP in three different colours to highlight your beautiful bouquet of roses.

Kate Morgan

I love this, Kathryn. All those stripy DSPs in different colours looks so cool, and the gorgous roses top it off beautifully.

Ros Davidson

What a bright and happy, cheerful card. Love the colours you have chosen.

Vicki Boucher

I love the colour palette it's so bright and happy! Your Z fold card is a great background to show off those roses! Beautiful card.
