Stampin' Up! News-Retiring Lists and Color Revamp

Happy Monday!

This was an exciting weekend--I attended OnStage in Hartford, CT! I enjoyed a fun day that included presentations, prizes, make 'n takes, and a look at all the new products coming out in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog on June 1. And, yummy 30th anniversary cupcakes!

The big news is that Stampin' Up! is doing a color revamp this year. What does that mean? 13 current colors will retire, 10 new colors will debut, and six previous In-Colors will return as part of the color collection. While it is sad to see favorites retire, the upside is that we will have fresh, new colors and the color collection will increase by three colors.

Along with the color revamp, there will also be a redesign of the stamp pad case and a new formula for the ink. Please note that you will be able to use the new ink refills for your old foam pads and you will be able use the old refills for the new pads (with the exception of the old Basic Gray Archival and the new Basic Gray Classic).

February Thank Yous - Heartfelt Blooms

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing the card my customers received as a thank you for placing an on-line order during the month February.

I used the FREE Sale-a-bration Heartfelt Blooms stamp set for my February thank you cards.


The floral image was stamped in Peekaboo Peach and the colors added with Sponge Daubers. It's your day was stamped in Calypso Coral.

I continued the floral image on the inside and envelope:


I really like the font used for the sentiments in the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

Don't miss out--today is the last day to Sale-a-brate!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sale-a-bration Stamp Camp Cards

Happy Thursday!


Today I am showing the cards we made at my FREE Sale-a-bration Stamp Camps. The two cards feature four Sale-a-bration products.

First up is the Celebrate card:


The front of the card features the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP and Celebrate You Thinlit Dies. Celebrate was die cut in Silver Foil and Basic Black, as were the butterflies. I apologize for the glare in the picture, but foil is hard to photograph. There is no stamping on the front of this card...

though, we did stamp on the inside:


We silver-embossed the swirl from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set on both the inside and envelope. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I had a few new stampers attend and they were 'awed' by the embossing. I think this elegant card can be used for a variety of occasions--birthday, graduation, retirement, shower, or wedding.

The second card is an open panel card (at least that is what I call it):


This card features the Party Pandas stamp set and Bubbles & Fizz DSP.

The inside and envelope:


I set-up the panda and happy birthday stamps on my Stamparatus so they were perfectly placed for everyone to stamp the inside of their cards. I didn't have enough of the polka dotted DSP, so my second Stamp Card attendees used the Bermuda Bay striped paper and the Bermuda Bay star paper for the balloon.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget, there's only 2 1/2 days left to Sale-a-brate!


Supply List:

Basic Black and Whisper White CS, Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (SAB), Silver Foil Sheets, Medium Whisper White Envelope, Memento Tuxedo Black and Versamark Ink, Silver Embossing Powder, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, Celebrate You Thinlits (SAB), and Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set (SAB)

Bermuda Bay and Whisper White CS, Bubbles & Fizz DSP (SAB), Medium Whisper White Envelope, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, and Crushed Curry Markers, Tutti Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins (OC), Balloon Bouquet Punch, and Party Pandas Stamp Set (SAB)

Heartfelt Blooms Birthday Card in Berry Burst

Happy Monday!

Today I have a birthday card using the Heartfelt Blooms Sale-a-bration stamp set.



I partially stamped the pretty floral image in all four corners using Berry Burst Ink. Glitter Enamel Dots adorn the centers of the daisies. The sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. 

Seems I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card. From what I remember, I partially stamped the floral image in two opposing corners. At least I remembered to get the coordinating envelope in the photo.

Want to see this stamp set in action? Here is a Stampin' Up! video:



Have you chosen this stamp set yet as one of your FREE Sale-a-bration gifts? Don't miss out--there is less than a week left to take advantage of the FREE Sale-a-bration offerings.


Supply List:  Basic Black, Berry Burst, and Whisper White CS, Berry Burst and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Medium Whisper White Envelope, Glitter Enamel Dots, and Heartfelt Blooms (SAB) and Picture Perfect Birthday (OC) Stamp Sets
