Catalog Launch with New Wonders

Hello Stamping Friends,

We had a fun day Saturday at the catalog launch.  Jo and Lucille had cards to sell and Christine brought cute little boxes to sell that she had made and filled with chocolate kisses.  I had many stamp sets and tools for sale and those that didn’t sell will be posted here on the blog under the tab “bake sale” after we return from Yellowstone.

I traveled to a funeral held on Thursday and was glad to have our new Stampin’ Up! bags to pack all my tools so I could make the In Color bookmark at the motel so it would be ready for the make-and-take at Saturday’s event.

The bag held the Stamparatus bag and the 12X12 paper carrier and the inks, stamp set,  punch, shammy, ribbons, markers and more.  Love it!!

So what did I come up with for the Make- And -Take that would introduce our five new colors?

Drum roll…… introducing “New Wonders”:

Isn’t she adorable?  The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is the perfect background for her and all the new In Colors:

The words describe our new catalog!!

 

My club members were looking at our club schedule to see when they would be able to earn the New Wonders stamp set:

This set is a hostess set and can be earned by hosting a party or purchasing $150 or more of products.  It is also a DistINKtive set with all the amazing dimensions of that special type of stamp.  Do you notice how the pages on the bookmark look 3D?

Be sure and notice the Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock ribbons used together on the bookmark.  They are unique and beautiful!

Bookmark Recipe:

  • In Color Base (Rococo Rose)  2 3/8″ X 8 1/2″  – corner rounded at the top
  • Designer Series Paper (DSP) Perennial Essence  2 1/4″ X 8 3/8″  – corner rounded
  • In Color strips to stamp the pages in each color  1 1/2″  X 3 1/4″  – 5 In Colors, stamp and fussy cut the pages only on each color
  • Shimmer White for angel  2 1/2″ X 2 1/2″  Stamp, color and fussy cut.  I left the pages on the image and then glued the Purple Posy on top of the Shimmer White.  The darker colors won’t show the little hands as well.
  • Shimmer White for greeting 2 3/4″ X 1 3/4″- use the 2nd smallest oval in the Stitched Shapes framelits
  • 5″ ribbon in Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose
  • 8″ twine

Each year I do a Color Chart for the five new In Colors and the stampers make one at the catalog launch.  The colors will be current through June 1st of 2021.  Each year a new set of five In Colors is introduced and those colors stay current for two years.

 

Contact me if you would like A) the set of 12 color charts or B) just the new In Color Chart and new comparison charts.  The full set is $12, the new comparison charts and In Color Chart are $6. The 12 charts are the Basics, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, Brights, Greens, Blues & Grays, Oranges & Yellows, Purples & Browns, Reds & Pinks, In Colors 18-20, In Colors 19-21.

I would love to earn your business and be your demonstrator!  I have clubs that meet on Tuesdays and Saturdays every other month and in the off month I have Stamp A Stacks or other crafting events.  Check out the calendar to see what’s in store for this coming year!

June 8th – Catalog Launch/ Garage Sale

Hello Stamping Friends,

I am working on an advertisement in the paper along these lines:

Let me know if you would like to participate!

SAL,

Karen

“All That You Are” is retiring; don’t let it get away!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Did you overlook the stamp set on the inside cover of the Occasions catalog?  The flowers in this set are beautiful and the font on the greetings is lovely.  Take a look see!  Item #148664; (the blue means there is a framelit to cut it out):

I cased several people and watched FrenchieStamps.com do an inside pop up flower box.

Can you distinguish that cute little flower in the box?  It would even look great as a focal point with one of the Vibrant Vases stamps.  The crafters had a choice of three colors, Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral or Gorgeous Grape and they all turned out phenomenal!  Pictures of those are after the recipe below.

The Gingham Paper is retiring so be sure and add that to your list- again!  You may have thought it was gone because of the previous backorder but it is orderable until June 3 –  Item #148554.

Use hostess code GZG4SMXW if your order is under $150.   Extra perks to ordering with the hostess code until June 8-raffle tickets!

I have put together a raffle basket for the catalog launch on Saturday, June 8, 9:00am to 3:00pm, and you will receive one raffle ticket for each $10 order using the hostess code; for example $50 and you will receive 5 tickets. Tickets that day will be $2 each. The basket has items only demonstrators can order:

There is also a fun product in the basket that I can’t show just yet.  Hint:  decorated tin, cards and envelopes, laser cuts……

Attendance at the catalog launch for the raffle drawing is not required but you won’t want to miss the fun.  There will be a crafting sale of retired items I must part with (gotta buy the new ones) and other crafters will have tables set up as well.  The first 16 people purchasing from the craft sale will receive a special thank you gift with a little taste of bling from the new catalog.  Our make and take will be the traditional bookmark with a new In Color, and for those interested, there will be a station to make a color sheet with the new In Colors.  At 10:00 and 1:00 there will be a catalog scavenger hunt with a fun door prize at each.  Do you think I can talk Paul into putting on his tux and serving us appetizers throughout the event?  Hmmmm….. it is a stretch.  You will just have to come see for yourself!

Save the date: June 8th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Now back to that card I want to detail for you.

Stamp Set:  All That You Are

Tools:  Rectangle Stitched Framelits, Stamp A Ma Jig Sheet, Stamparatus

Card Base:  Gorgeous Grape 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″ Scored at 4 1/4″

First Layer:  Gingham Gala DSP  in Highland Heather 4″ X 5 1/4″

Top Layer:  Whisper White 3 3/4″ X 4 7/8″

Paper for stamping all the images to be cut out:  Whisper White 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″, Stamp, color and fussy cut, except the greeting – it is cut with the stitched rectangle framelit:

  • 1 medium flower
  • 1 small flower, put a yellow center in the flower to match the rest of the flowers; if you don’t have a dot, punch a bit of yellow with a 1/8″ hole punch
  • 4 single leaves – two for the front flower, two for the inside flower in the box
  • 3 six leaf stems – Color outside the lines with your Stampin’ Blend and fussy cut to leave green around the black
  • 1 multi flower stem
  • Greeting – leave a  1 1/4″ X 1 3/4″ corner of the sheet to stamp Happy Birthday (or grab another scrap of white)

Window Sheet for mounting greenery:  1/4″ X 8″  Cut to length for each piece as you fill your box.

Stampin’ Blends – Highland Heather, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight

Embellishments:  Ribbon 7″ X 2;  I wrap one ribbon around the top layers, the white and the DSP, and then tie a bow with the other length and adhere with a glue dot.  The bow holds the ribbon in place a bit better.  It is the retired Sale A Bration organdy ribbon.  If you attend the craft sale you might be able to buy some…. hint hint.  I also used retired glitter enamel dots.  New colors of glitter dots are in the catalog!

Inside Layer:  Whisper White  5 1/4″ X 8″  Scored at 4″ but do NOT fold on the score line until after the images are stamped on the left first and then the right hand side of the score line.  You need the score line for positioning the stamp.

Box:  Whisper White 2″ X 8″; Score at 2″ – 4″ – 6″;  Use your cutter and shave 1/16″ off each end; burnish all the score lines really well with your bone folder.

Box Flaps X 2:  Gingham Gala DSP,  2 3/4″ X 2″ minus 1/6″ so 1 15/16″  to be technical, score the flaps at 2″ ; fold and use a dimensional to hold the fold in place.

Box Strips X 2:  Whisper White 1/2″ X 4″ , score at 1″ and 3″ and yes, shave 1/16″ off the ends.  The score line takes room and we need to adjust everything for the score lines by shaving off a bit on the ends.  Z fold the strips and burnish your score lines. (That means rub the folds really well!)  Now adhere your strips inside your box, one strip just down from the top and the second strip right below the first strip).  The penciled words say “Glued Down” to show you where to glue the strips. I used Tear and Tape.  Place a second piece of Tear and Tape on the other end of the Z strip facing up, remove the backing and then fold the sides over to perfectly adhere the box to the strips so that your card lays flat.

 

Now your box should look like this with cross pieces to attach your greenery and flowers.  The sides are being held with a yellow sticky note for the picture.  When you are through stamping your inside images those two sides will be glued on either side of the score line in the middle of your card.  I used Tear and Tape to adhere them.

 

Put your box aside for now and stamp and color your images with Tuxedo Memento black ink.

Stamp your outside image and your image on the left side of the inside first.

Now stamp the inside mirror image by using the Stamparatus and the plastic sheet from the Stamp A Ma Jig.  Secure the plastic sheet to the Stamparatus with magnets and stamp the image twice to get lots of ink.  Carefully position your sheet on the right side of the inside layer matching the left image and then burnish really really well with your finger or your bone folder or both!  You must hold the sheet firmly with one hand while you burnish with the other so the sheet doesn’t shift and give you a double image.  Use the black Stampin’ Up! marker to darken any lines that need it.  Memento ink and the marker are water based so you can color the images with the alcohol based Stampin’ Blends without smearing the black.  I wish I would have tilted the bottom of the stamp a little more to the right in making my mirror image so that the green leaf was outside the box like the left hand side.

Note:  Other mirror image techniques use the silicone sheet, plumber’s gasket or the flat side of a photopolymer stamp.  Our flower image was too big for a photopolymer stamp and you can’t see through plumber’s gasket so a silicone sheet or the Stamp A Ma Jig sheet work best.  If you don’t have a Stamparatus, place the stamp face up, ink it well and then place the silicone sheet on top of the inked stamp and burnish with your fingers.

The Happy Birthday rectangle greeting is popped up with dimensionals.

The medium flower on the front has two leaves attached with glue dots and then it is popped up so it sits at the edge of the greeting.

The greenery and flower in the box are mounted with glue dots to a 1/4″ strip of window sheet in various lengths and then the window sheet is adhered to the strips with glue dots.

At club, we decided it needed something more so we added butterflies!

Not sure you really want this set?  Check out other images on Pinterest and you will be convinced it is worth it!  Google “All That You Are”.

Do you like the butterflies?  They are from the Sale A Bration Designer Series Paper and punch out with the butterfly punch.  I hope you stocked up on this paper!

If you want to send a bouquet of flowers in sympathy for someone passing this is the perfect card with a greeting from the “Kindness and Compassion” stamp set:

Comfort and Healing words are in “Flourishing Phrases”.  The greetings go together perfectly and yet are in different sets!

Save June 8th! 9-3.

Let It Ride Z Fold

Hello Stamping Friends,

I have one more card to post from my April card class. This one uses the Let It Ride stamp set and is a case of Kim Baker at www.kims-kreative-korner.blogspot.com.

 

 

 

Stamps:  Let It Ride, High Tide (birds), Barn Door, Crackle Paint

Tools:  Sliding Door Framelits Dies, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder,

Inks:  Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Soft Sky Blue

Stampin’ Blends:  Dark & Light Soft Suede, Light Smoky Slate (hooves)

Special Technique:  Sponging with saran wrap.  I wadded up a piece of saran wrap and put it in one of those big black desk clips.  I masked off the separation between sky and meadow and masked off the horse. I stamped the sky, changed saran wrap and switched the mask on the meadow to the sky and then stamped the meadow in green.  It gave the card a textured sort of sponging and took much less time.  Looks a lot like grass don’t you think?!

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the horse (and needed it) so I could stamp a second time and press a little extra on the mane.   I triple stamped the trees using the Stamparatus so they would be a deep green and then moved the hinge on the Stamparatus and did a couple of shadow stamps to create a forest.

Dimensions:  Note – the layers are flush to the bottom

  • Crumb Cake:  11″ X 4 1/4″, Score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″;  Make a pencil mark 2 1/8″ down at the left hand side of the front and cut diagonally from that mark to the 2 3/4″ score line
  • Real Red:  5 3/8″ X 4 1/8″, Score at 2 5/8″; Make a pencil mark 2 1/16″ down on the left hand side of the front and cut diagonally from the mark to 2 5/8″ score line.  Emboss with the Pinewood Plank embossing folder
  • Very Vanilla:  5 5/16″ (5 1/4 + 1/16″) X 4 1/8″
  • Crumb Cake: 3″ X 4″ for the gate;   stamp and cut the entire barn door then cut in half
  • Black Scrap: 2″ X 2″ for hardware on the door
  • Red Strip: 5/8″ X 2 1/2″, emboss with the Pinewood Plank, roll the paper with your fingers to create the look of the front of a post, place an adhesive dimensional strip down the middle to adhere; adhere a bit down from the top so you don’t see the adhesive.

Stamp your name on the back and send to your favorite horse lover!

We have two weeks left of the Annual Catalog and the Occasions Catalog so be sure and check your wish list to make sure you purchased what you can’t live without.  I recommend stocking up on your paper since the price goes up with the new catalog June 4th.  Thank you for choosing me as your demonstrator!

The hostess code for the next party is DP7XS3NC.  The new catalog launch is Saturday, June 8th, in conjunction with the craft garage sale.  Hope you can make it!  Click on the calendar to view all the upcoming events.  My first Christmas Stamp
A Stack will be in August.  Check it out!

Celebrate Your Day!

Hello Stamping Friends,

It’s Friday!  Let’s celebrate!  If you are a mother, I hope you have a Happy Mother’s Day weekend!  Let the celebration begin, now.

We made this card at our downline meeting and it could be used for most any celebration!

It is a case from Wendy Lee at www.CreativeLeeYours.com,  who cased Mikela Titheridge at www.thecraftyoinkpen.co.uk

Stamp Set:  Hello Cupcake from Sale A Bration 2019

Tools:  Call Me Cupcake Framelits, Bunch of Banners Framelits, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1/8″ hand held punch

Inks:  Powder Pink, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Melon Mambo, Wink of Stella

Embellishments:  4″ Blue Organdy Ribbon from Sale A Bration 2019, Rhinestones, Blue Sequins

Card Base:  Balmy Blue 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″ scored at 4″ and 8″

Insert:  Whisper White  5″ X 3 3/4″

Slider Mechanism:  Thick Whisper White 3/4″ X 3″

Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper:  5 1/4″ X 3 3/4″

Icing:  Powder Pink  2″ X 2″ stamped and die cut

Cupcake: So Saffron 1″ X 2″  die cut

Cupcake Tissue:  Crumb Cake 2″ X 2″ stamped and die cut

Cupcake Cover:  Vellum  3 3/4″ X 2 3/4″ die cut & put large rhinestone at top

Cupcake Base Plate:   Shimmer White 1 1/2″ X 3″ die cut

Flowers:  Whisper White Scrap  3/4″ X 3″ stamp in Melon Mambo & Die Cut

Banner:  Whisper White  3 1/2″ X 1 1/4″ die cut

Circle Pull Tab:  Balmy Blue Scrap punched with 1 1/4″ Circle Punch

Steps:

  1. Adhere DSP to front at left of 1/2″ tab with 1/8″ border
  2. Die cut the vellum cupcake ‘glass’ cover
  3. Die cut the shimmer white cupcake base plate
  4. Use 1 1/4″ circle punch and punch the front layers and back layer of the card at the top in the middle
  5. Make one vertical cut  1 1/4″ to the left of 8″ score line- 1″ from top & 1 3/8″ from bottom, you don’t need a cut on the other side. Note:  The cupcake is not centered on the front since the mechanism needs to slide on the right and the cupcake needs to be behind the vellum.  We made the mistake of trying to center it with our first cut. It is almost invisible in the picture.
  6. Place a dimensional on the right front side of the Thick Whisper White 3/4″ slider mechanism and run the slider through the slot front side to back side at the very bottom of the slit.  Turn the card over and hold the mechanism straight by placing a sticky note on it, sticking it to the back of the card. Place two pieces of sticky tape on the 3/4″ slider which will glue to the white insert later.
  7. Cut the banner and use the Stamparatus to position the “Celebrate” in the middle of the banner.  Mask off the “your day” part of the stamp, ink in Melon Mambo, remove the mask and stamp. (Or color ‘Celebrate’ with a marker).  We were doing multiple cards so I drew around the banner with a pencil on a piece of stamparatus grid sheet to help with the placement.
  8. Glue the cupcake plate at the bottom of the front at the end of the slit. It is 1/4″ from the bottom so you have 1/8″ DSP border and the Balmy Blue 1/8″ border.
  9. Glue the ‘Celebrate’ banner to the bottom of the vellum cover.  Work the vellum with your fingers to make it have a slight curl then remove the backing of the dimensional on the slider mechanism and adhere the cover to the slider mechanism.
  10. Now position the Whisper White insert on the Stamparatus so that the “Your Day” part of the stamp will stamp 3/4″ down on the left side, mask off the “celebrate”, ink in Melon Mambo, remove the mask and stamp. (Or color ‘Your Day’ with a marker).
  11. Punch out the blue circle for the pull and score it in half.  Adhere it to the middle of the insert and punch a little hole with the 1/8″ hand held punch for the ribbon. Attach the ribbon.
  12. Remove the backing of the tear and tape of the slider mechanism and position the Whisper White insert to attach to the mechanism.
  13. Stamp and die cut three little flowers with Melon Mambo.  Color with Wink of Stella. Adhere with glue dots and place a rhinestone on the two flowers in the front.
  14. Add sequins and color the icing with the Wink of Stella.
  15. Now you can put tear and tape on the 1/2″ tab at the right of the front and adhere the front to the back.

I hope many of you purchased this stamp and framelit set!  I want to do a chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting next!  What is your favorite flavor?

SAL, Sharing A Love of cupcakes

Beauty Abounds And Butterfly Beauty

Hello Stamping Friends,

I have some fun cards today using the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits and the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set.  These two sets carry into the new catalog but if you get them now you will get a 10% bundle discount, #150617.  See them on page 13 of the Occasions catalog.

Before we get into the club card I want to show you The Vertical Greetings stamp set that I used for the Thank You notes. It is being retired:

I have used this set more times than I can count.  In today’s thank you cards I didn’t want to cover up the beautiful butterflies but there was just enough room to do a vertical greeting.

Let’s start with the card I did for my card class:

The little ‘hello’ in the Beauty Abounds stamp set fit right between the butterflies. I stamped the hello in Versa Mark ink and embossed it with black embossing powder and then punched it out.   I held the butterflies in place- without adhering them- to determine where to place the hello, being careful that the butterflies didn’t go outside the card.

Note: the double sided adhesive sheets are being retired, #144106, so stock up now.  I used a sheet to adhere the top layer of the butterfly to the bottom layer.  I put a 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ piece of the adhesive on the back of the Gorgeous Grape cardstock of the same size before running it through the Big Shot.  After you cut out the butterflies and pull off the adhesive backing sheet, save it!  It is shiny and beautiful.  I used it on the thank you cards you will see in a minute.

There is a large stamp in the Beauty Abounds set with six bokeh dots and a smaller one with four bokeh dots.  I used both and stamped them with Highland Heather.  I stamped the dots with Gorgeous Grape.  It is amazing how SU can make stamps that get several different shades of color with just one stamp.  I didn’t have to do any masking or coloring- it was all in the stamp!

It was a little tedious to put dimensionals on all the butterflies but so worth the effort!  These are the small dimensionals with a strip cut from the edge of the dimensionals sheet to put in the middle.

On the inside I stamped another set of bokeh dots in Highland Heather and two of the little butterflies from the same Beauty Abounds set in Gorgeous Grape.

Dimensions & Supplies:

Ink:  Versa Mark, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Black Embossing Powder

Stamps & Dies:  Beauty Abounds & Butterfly Beauty Thinlits

Card Base:  Gorgeous Grape, 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″

Second Layer- make 2:  Highland Heather,  5 3/8″ X 4 1/8″

Butterfly Outside Layer:  Gorgeous Grape, 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″

Adhesive Sheet:  5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″  – adhere the whole sheet to the back of the Gorgeous Grape

Butterfly Bottom Layer:  Highland Heather,  5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″

Whisper White Layer:  3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″

Whisper White Scrap for punching the ‘hello’ greeting

Bling:  Five black Faceted Dots (#146910- retiring)

The little butterflies have thinlits to cut them out and Stampin’ Up! has heard our frustrations with the time it takes when we want multiples of a cutout so they are making dies with several duplicates to save us time:

Lots of little butterflies we can run through the Big Shot!

After the card class I had leftover cutouts as well as the adhesive sheet backings and I wanted to use them for my thank you cards.  I chose Flirty Flamingo for another cutout and black for some of the backings. From a past catalog I had purchased Calypso Coral embossing powder and it matched the Flirty Flamingo card stock so I used it and ‘Vertical Greetings’  to emboss the thank you on the purple layers. (I showed that set first since I really don’t want you to miss having it in your collection.) I colored the wings with the clear Wink of Stella and adhered Iridescent Sequins, # 144212,  for even more sparkle.

In this card I stamped the wing cutouts with the little dot stamp and then did a bit of paper piecing to make the wings.

I wish you could see how the Wink of Stella makes it look like black glimmer paper was used! The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls were used and they, too, are retiring, #146927.

Which one is your favorite?  I would love to see what you come up with!

Wonderful Romance Thinking of You

Hello Stamping Friends,

If you are not into fancy folds like the prior posts’ bendi card, this card with its beautiful vellum designer paper might be what you are looking to make. The bouquet of flowers has a framelit to cut it out and there is a framelit to cut the beautiful leafy edge.  The ‘Thinking of You’ greeting fits perfectly on one of the stitched rectangle framelits and the Frosted Flower Embellishment with a rhinestone in the middle dresses it up.

Base:  Fresh Fig, 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, Score at 4 1/4″.  Cut a piece of copy paper 2 5/8″ X 5 1/2″ and place it on the front with a sticky note so you can line up your leaf edge framelit along the copy paper edge to make sure your leaf edge is cut straight. There is a lot of stress on the Big Shot to cut the leaf edge all at once so the cranking seems hard but it worked and I ran it back and forth several times to get a good cut.

Powder Pink Inside Layer:  4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″

Pear Pizzaz:  2 3/8″ X 5 3/8″

Whisper White:  2 3/16″  X 5 3/16″  This is the backing for your vellum.  If you don’t have vellum adhesive, use tombow glue and a sponge to ‘paint’ the glue on the back of the vellum with the sponge and the glue will not show.

Floral Romance Designer Series Paper Vellum:  2 3/16″  X 5 3/16″

Greeting:  Whisper White  2″ X 2 1/2″ stamped in Fresh Fig and cut with the stitched rectangle framelit.

Bouquet:  Shimmer White 3 1/2″ X 4″ stamped in Memento Black and colored with Stampin’ Blends. The shimmer of the card stock even shows up in the picture!  I used Dark Old Olive on the large leaves and Light Old Olive on the smaller leaves.  Dark Pink Pirouette was used on the middle flower and the little buds to look similar to the vellum DSP.  Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends matched the Fresh Fig very well to color the other flowers.  Rhinestones were put in the middle of the flowers and a bow was put on the base of the bouquet using the Old Olive Linen Thread.

This Wonderful Romance Stamp Set, the Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies, the Floral Romance DSP and the Old Olive Linen Thread all retire June 3rd.  The products are on page 11 of the Occasions catalog and there is a bundle, #150592,  that gives you 10% off if you buy the stamps and framelits together.  I am sad to see these products go away.  The Old Olive Linen Thread is on page 39, #148811.  It is just a little finer than baker’s twine and dresses up any project.

SAL,  Sad At Losing this product

Karen
