This week's Stampin' Up! colour, featuring on creations of a group of us from the Art With Heart Team in Australia, is Magenta Madness.  This bright pink is one of the five In Colors that form part of our colour range from 2020 to 2022.

As with every Wednesday's Colour Creations Showcase, Cathy Proctor is co-ordinating our share.  She has a comprehensive list on her blog of all the participants in this week's Showcase.  We would love for you to visit each of our blogs, and to leave some comment love, if you feel inspired.

To show off this very bold pink, I decided to use a lot of white on my card.  I have used the lovely Borders Abound stamp set.  To start with, I used my Stamparatus, and the hinge-step stamping technique, to stamp two of the borders repeatedly across a piece of Whisper White card.  The flower border was stamped in Magenta Madness ink, and the leaf/vine border in Granny Apple Green ink.  I then used Stampin' Blends markers in those same colours to colour the images.  After I'd coloured this piece, I cut it out using an Ornate Layers die.  I mounted it on another Whisper White panel, that had been cut with a larger Ornate Layers die, and embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder.

The sentiment, also from Borders Abound, was stamped on a piece of Magenta Madness card, using Versamark ink.  I then heat-embossed it, with white embossing powder, and cropped it with a Stitched Rectangle die.  In this photo, you can see the Magenta Madness Enamel Dots added to the sentiment panel, and some flower centres:

In this photo, you can clearly see the Subtle embossing of the larger Whisper White panel in the background:

Listed below are all the products I used to make this card.  They are available to purchase from my online store, which is open 24/7 to Australian residents.

  1. Christine this is a such a great card to show the hinge step technique and the subtle embossing folder looks great too. Thank you for sharing your beautiful Magenta Madness cards with us tonight!

  2. Beautiful card Christine, I love how you've used this set and the white on white looks very effective.

  3. Such a lovely card Christine. Magenta Madness goes so well with Granny Apple Green and pairing it with the Borders Abound stamps with hinged stamping is delightful. xxx

  4. Yes, the hinged stamping technique is fabulous, especially in these bright colours. Love the font of that sentiment!

  5. What a lovely effect, and a really pretty card.

  6. A very pretty card love. What a great idea to turn that stamp set on it's side and the use of Whisper White tones down the Magenta Madness beautifully

  7. Whisper white works fabulously well with Magenta Madness and Granny Apple Green is another colour I love with it! Hinge step stamping is a technique I rarely do and one you reminded me of.

  8. Such a sweet and pretty card, Christine. I love how your repeat stamping looks after you cropped with that gorgeous Ornate Layers die.

  9. The white and Granny Apple Green are perfect with the Magenta Madness Christine. I love all the layers. A beautiful card.

  10. Lovely colour combination and very pretty card! Great way to show off the technique and of course I always love white on white layers AND the ornate borders :)
