Pineapple Punch & Detailed with Love for GDP135

This week’s “Show Me the Sunshine” theme at the Global Design Project challenge had me reaching for yellow. What a perfect opportunity to break into my 2018-2020 In Colors cardstock pack! A panel of Pineapple Punch really brings the sunshine for this sweet card. Here’s my card for this week’s GDP challenge:

Detailed with Love, Sheltering Tree, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, GDP135And here’s the banner for the GDP challenge that inspired my card:

GDPD135Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Two Sneak Peeks. Not only does this card feature that bold, bright panel of Pineapple Punch (I’m SO going to love this color!), but it features a lovely sentiment from a great, new stamp set called Detailed with Love that demonstrators who attended OnStage were able to pre-order. Yay! Here’s a look at this sweet, new stamp set: Detailed with Love, Stampin' Up!, 146606How beautiful are these sentiments?! And here’s another look at Pineapple Punch: Pineapple Punch, Stampin' Up! 2018-2020 In ColorThat color really packs a punch, don’t you think? [pun intentional] I introduced the new In Colors in a post last weekend – you can see it here.
  • All that Shine. You might not be able to tell from the first picture of this card, but the “splattering” above the sentiment is stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. My original idea was to just stamp with Pineapple Punch, but the silver really adds something special here. I stamped the image of leaves from Sheltering Tree, masking the bottom of the card base below the band. I love the effect they give on this bright yellow panel. Here’s a look at the shine: Detailed with Love, Sheltering Tree, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, GDP135And here’s a look at Sheltering Tree – I’ve used those leaves on more cards for texture than I have used them for leaves:Sheltering Tree, Stampin' Up!, 137163
  • Color Combination. There’s something really special about the combination of yellow and gray. I’ve often times paired Daffodil Delight with grays, so I thought it would certainly work with Pineapple Punch. I LOVE the outcome. If you are inspired by this combination of Pineapple Punch, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray, please save this:Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Pineapple Punch, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray

  1. What a great way to use the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set. Love that bright pop of yellow!

    • Thanks, Dawn! I had fun with it. I have a feeling Pineapple Punch will work its way into our hearts just like Lemon Lime Twist did. It’s a standout, bright color but so fun to work with.

  2. Brian…sunshine in deed, the pineapple punch is so bright, bold and beautiful! They greys shows it off, with the touch of black, great card!

    • Thanks so much, Katrina! Gray is such a great supporting player for yellow. It helps to tone it down a bit while also helping it to shine a bit. <3 Glad you like this card.

  3. Love your clever use of the Sheltering Tree stamp, Brian. The Pineapple Punch yellow really brightens the card with the grays and black. Great card! Enjoy your day!

  4. Gray is the perfect and modern complement to this beautiful yellow. Love the silver embossed background!

  5. Wow with the Pineapple Punch and grays! Sweet card!

    • πŸ™‚ Thanks so much, Windy! I’m so happy we have this new shade – I would have said, “we don’t need a brighter yellow,” but I would have been wrong. Glad you like it. <3

  6. I love the combination of yellow and grays, Brian! Can’t wait to get my hands on these new papers – so excited!

  7. The yellow is BIG in advertising . It is lively and happy ! Love this newbie !!
    Great card !!

  8. I’m so anxious to get my hands on this Pineapple Yellow ink and paper! It looks like a “true” yellow with no tint like orange or red. I’m so happy to see you showing it off in all its glory Brian. Fabulous card.

  9. That Pineapple Punch is a knockout! I love the added silver embossing, the perfect finishing touch of brilliance!

  10. Brian, I love this card! I’ve never considered myself a huge fan of the color yellow, but the moment that I saw Pineapple Punch, I was in love! Also, I ordered that Pretty Label Punch over a month ago, and apparently it’s still on backorder. Do you happen to know when they’ll be back in stock? Thanks!

  11. WOW! The Pineapple Punch and Silver Embossing is really a great combination. I’m thinking I’ll be seeing a lot of that in the year to come – from both of us!! Love it!

  12. Love a yellow that packs a punch! Honestly, I read the headline and looked for a pineapple punch on your card. Ha! Always takes me a little while to get used to the new color names. πŸ™‚
