In Color Designer Paper Stacks

We have new 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks.  There is a stack for each of the In Color collections, and then one stack for each of our four core color collection.  Remember the ever popular gingham checked paper from the Occasions catalog – well now you can get a gingham check in all 50 Stampin’ Up! colors because it is one of the new patterns in the paper stacks.  On these cards though I used the script words design. 

This is a square card – cut an 8-1/2″ square and then score one side at 4-1/4″ – giving you a 4-1/4″ square card.  And just slip it into our regular medium envelope.  I added strips of the Designer Series paper in the five new in colors.  The Daisy Lane stamp set is the one I featured here – using both sizes of the daisies now that I have both punches.  

See the little scallop edge under the greeting?  That is a half piece of the scallop trim ribbon and I found the easiest way to attach it is with a bit of Tear & Tape. 

If you would like to see a video of this card watch my Facebook Live from June 17th – HERE.

Pretty Peacock & Seaside Spray cards

I have some more In Color themed cards for you today.  These two show the Seaside Spray and the Pretty Peacock colors.  Of the five new colors these two are my favorite.  And I’ve used the new Free as a Bird stamp set but without any of the birds.  You can see this card and some others featuring the 2019-2021 In Colors on my Facebook live video from June 17th – HERE.

I love the new little scallop ribbon that comes in our new In Colors.  On these cards I just attached it straight across my front layer.   I used both the small and large flower images from the Free as a Bird stamp set to create the background.  You can mount them both on one block and stamp at the same time – just turn the block as you go to make it more random.

Supply List

  • #149468 Free as a Bird Stamp set
  • #149701 2019-2021 In Color Cardstock Pack
  • #121043 Sahara Sand Cardstock
  • #100730 Whisper White Cardstock

Colored Dots make fun cards

Another card showcasing the brand new 2019-2021 Stampin’ Up! In Colors.  This one is all about the dots.  It’s a totally different look for this stamp set – do you know what it is?  It’s the Waterfront Stamp set. 

Make the dots in the different colors using the stamp – be sure to clean well in between colors.  I normally start with the lightest color first and then finish with the darkest.  So if I don’t do a good job cleaning I won’t stamp a really dark color into a really light pad.  It’s normally not a problem but sometimes when you start working fast you never know what can happen.  And for cards like this I tend to only open one color ink pad at a time since I’m using the one stamp over and over.  It just cuts down on contaminating the ink pads.  Finish the cards with a couple of punches and some twine.  You could choose any of the five colors for the card base.  I matched the starburst punch and the ink for the words to the card base.

Supply List

  • #146386 Waterfront Stamp set
  • #149701 2019-2021 In Color Cardstock Pack
  • #150087 2019-2021 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pads  (see note)
  • #124262 Whisper White Baker’s Twine
  • #143717 Starburst punch
  • #133782 2″ Circle punch
  • #104430 Stampin’ Dimensionals

NOTE:  Stampin’ Up! is currently working to resolve a quality issue with the Purple Post ink pad so because it is part of the bundle of the five new in color ink pads it is not available to order.  You can order the other four colors individually right now.  The five pack of the markers is available.

Thanks for visiting.  If you would like to see a video of this card watch my Facebook Live from June 17th – HERE.

In Color Thank You

I introduced the new In Colors on my Facebook Page in a live video on June 17th.  My plans were to post them on my blog last week.  It was one of the things I was going to work on when I went away for a crafting weekend in the mountains.  Once I got up there I realized I didn’t take the photos.  So no blog posts.  I’m catching up this week.  You can see all the cards in my live video – HERE.

So here is the first card I wanted to show you.  It was an idea that one of the SU Artisan Design Team Members shared and I changed up the colors.

This card uses strips of card stock – Basic Black and then our five new In Colors – Rocco Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray, Purple Posy.  Try this with other colors too – or even strips of designer paper.  So many possibilities with this idea. 

Supply List

  • #146832 Thank You die
  • #147377 A Big Thank You stamp set
  • #149701 In Color 2019-2021 card stock
  • #121045 Basic Black card stock
  • #100730 Whisper White card stock
  • #124262 Whisper White Baker’s Twine
  • #149607 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots
  • #132708 Black Memento Pad

Thanks for visiting my blog.  I’d love for you to leave a comment here and on my video.

Introducing the new 2019-2021 In Colors

Today is the day!  A brand new catalog starts and a brand new set of In-Colors will make their debut.  This past weekend I had my New Catalog Kickoff Party and part of the fun is having snacks.  And I love to theme my snacks to represent our new In-Colors.  Now in past years that hasn’t been too hard as we typically have several of the colors with names that reference food – Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove to name a few.  But this year who ever came up with the names must have been on a diet – or just not hungry because not a single one has anything to do with food!  So what was I going to do about my party snacks.  Well I had to get creative! 

Are you ready to meet the new In-Colors Represented in snacks!  First off here are the five new colors:

And now to show you how I incorporated them into my party.   First we have Rococo Rose Fruit Dip.

Next we have Terracotta Tile Vege Pots – this one was a favorite of everyone at the party.

Next is Pretty Peacock Twists.  These are a perfect match!

I had Seaside Spray Sugar Cookies – I found blue iced cookies and I also had some pink ones.

And finally there was the Purple Posy Punch along with Purple Posy cups and napkins.

For each of the five colors I made a little flower in a small vase.  Here are the supplies I used for those.

Supply List

  • #143713 Daisy Punch
  • #149701 2019-2021 In Color card stock
  • 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon in all 5 In Colors
  • #149442 Perennial Essence Floral Centers

 

I hope you loved these fun In-Colors themed snacks.  Maybe it will help everyone remember the names and what they are!

Ordering from the new catalog starts at noon MT on June 4, 2019.  You can order in my online store.  Contact me if you need a catalog.

Beauty in Bloom

Today I have another scrapbook layout for you.  This page was my May page for my Stamper’s Club.  I don’t think I’ve shown the April page yet so I’ll have to do that one later this month.  I’ve used the 2017-2019 In colors on this page.  They are really the perfect set of colors for flowers and the title I used on this page is Beauty in Bloom.  Don’t miss out on these beautiful colors – they are retiring!  We can only hope in a few years they might bring some of them back.  Definitely some of my personal favorites. 

I shared this page on a Facebook Live this week.  I showed how I used the Stamparatus for the stamping, a second page, and two alternate card ideas using the same supplies.  You can view my May 6, 2019 FB live video HERE.   Be sure to catch my next FB live video on Monday, May 13th.  

Don’t miss this versatile stamp set – Jar of Love and the coordinating Everyday Jar dies.  That is what I used for this page, the two page layout and my cards.  And it is retiring!  So are these colors and the Brushwork Alphabet that I used for the title.  Everyone had the option to choose whatever title they wanted since the letters were individually stamped.  We had a variety of spring & bloom titles.  Watch the video to see how I set up a template and used the Stamparatus to stamp all the pieces. 

Supply List

  • #141587 Jar of Love stamp set
  • #141772 Brushwork Alphabet stamp set
  • #141490 Everyday Jars dies
  • #146276 Stamparatus
  • #145453 2017-2019 12×12 Card stock
  • #147147 Powder Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147145 Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147146 Tranquil Tide Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147143 Berry Burst Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147144 Fresh Fig Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147003 Neutrals 12×12 Card stock
  • #147107 Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #132708 Memento Pad
  • #124302 Whisper White 12×12 Card stock
  • #146927 Share What You Love Artisan Pearls
  • #138401 Gold Metallic Thread
  • #104199 Linen Thread
  • #143741 Garden Trellis Embossing Folder
  • #143263 Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

I focused on a lot of retiring products when making this page.  On last hurrah!  So hurry and get them before they are gone for good – the 2017-2019 In Colors, the Jar of Love set and dies, the pearls, the embossing folder and even the Big Shot!

Here are the two alternate cards that my club could make using the same supplies. 

The first card has the same stamping as the scrapbook page – I just added the greeting.  For the second card I stamped directly on Crumb Cake card stock with the medium sized jar and the other little spray of greenery.  Then added the words.

For my Facebook Live video I added a second page so it would be a two page spread.

I used the same supplies just stamped out the medium and small jars and then divided the flowers and leaves between the two of them.
