Three ways to use Polished Pink to create Monochromatic Greeting Cards


  • Polished Pink Monochromatic Greeting Cards
  • Final Days to order Expression In Color June Paper Pumpkin Kit
  • Last week to earn additional $25 in Stampin' Rewards
I'm showing you more of the card swaps I received from my swap with other talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators earlier this month.   Today, I selected three cards showcasing the new Polished Pink In Color, from the Monochromatic In Color swap.  These cards feature Polished Pink, with Basic White accents.  I loved the variety of these cards.  Each one showcases Polished Pink in a lovely environment, surrounded by interesting images, embossed backgrounds or with engaging die cuts. If you haven't tried the new In Color cardstock, you can order an assortment package of just a few sheets of each of the new In Color.  Then pick your favorite colors and order a full pack of the color(s) you like the most from the new In Color collection. 
Three handmade greeting cards using Polished Pink In Color from Stampin' Up!

The card below was created by a Demonstrator, Mary Blocher.  She used the Color & Contour Stamp Set for her floral images, and Hand-Penned Stamp Set for the sentiment.  She created the background on the base card by stamping the floral stamp image in Polished Pink onto Polished Pink cardstock.  She used two of the Scalloped Contours Dies to create the Polished Pink open-scalloped layer, and for the scalloped Whisper White layer.  The flowers were stamped in Polished Pink, and Polished Pink blends were used to color the die cut flower.  The bow is created using the 3/8" Polished Pink Open Weaved Ribbon.  The speckled background was created using one of the stamps from the Color & Contour Bundle.  Lovely card, Mary!

This next card, below, created by Robin Schaeppi, uses the Brilliant Wings Dies to create this whimsical butterfly card.  The card again uses Polished Pink and Basic White Cardstock with a scattering of 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.  Both the butterflies backgrounds as well as the detailed butterflies were die cut from this die set. All of these butterflies and butterfly shapes are found in the Brilliant Wings Dies -- plus more!  I think this set of dies is a great value.  They work well on their own, plus there is a coordinating Brilliant Butterflies Stamp Set to make this an exceptional value.  What a fun card for a friend or family member to receive.

This final card, below, created by Becky O'Donnell, uses a combination of the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder, and the helm is from the Smooth Sailings Dies.  It includes a tasteful pearl in the center.    I love all of the texture on this card.  The basecard and inks used on the card are Polished Pink.  The sentiment is from the Sailing Home Stamp Set.  The matt behind the image layer is a piece of Polished Pink dry embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Perfect for graduation cards, or change the sentiment for summer beach parties or birthdays.

Again, these cards showcase the different looks you can create  with just one of the In Colors, Die Cuts, and Basic White. This is a color that orderly, yet feminine, with strength and softness.  It is the perfect color to convey kindness and compassion.
