New at SU! In-Color Happiness

New Catalog, New Colors, New Stamps…and we can’t wait to share it all with you! Today we are featuring the 2022-2024 In-Colors that made their debut this month and as you visit the website of each of our International demonstrator design team, make sure you PIN your favorites to remember for later.

Bright and bold, I adore these new colors, and I wanted to show how lovely three of them (Parakeet Party, Sweet Sorbet and Orchard Oasis) coordinate in WATERCOLOR:

The Happiness Abounds bundle was perfect for this simple technique! Here are the easy steps:

  1. Heat emboss the flowers and leaves with white embossing powder on thick Basic White card stock.
  2. Squeeze your ink pads (while closed) to get a bit of ink inside the lid of your case, then open the ink pad and pick up a bit of ink from the lid using a water painter. (Don’t pick up ink directly from your ink pad). TIP: Start with a light wash of color and add more as desired..
  3. Use the dies to cut out the watercolored flora using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine and add to your project with liquid glue or dimensionals.

Putting these flowers onto one of our new striped Emboss Treat bags makes me ready for the next birthday or wedding gift I need to wrap.

Before you move on to Andrea’s pretty project (or click anywhere on the list to see more In-Color Inspiration), tell me which In-Color matches your personality!? For me, I think it’s going to be Tahitian Tide (which I didn’t even use on this project!).

Ladybug Wish Come True

I don’t enjoy bugs crawling on me, but there is a soft spot in my heart (and on my fingers) for ladybugs. They are just the friendliest little creatures, so I don’t mind walking them to the door (if they’ve found their way inside) and giving them a lift to the nearest plant outside. I may even talk to them and tell them how pretty they are.

This little ladybug is adorable on a card:

Here’s a tutorial to get started, and of course, all the supplies can be found in my Stampin’ store!

Retirement Parade: So Long, Sweet Peach!

The New at SU! Design Team is bringing you a POP-UP PARADE featuring some of the products we have loved and are sad to see leave as the Retiring List for the Annual Catalog has been released. These items are only while supplies last, so don’t miss your opportunity to order them!

I chose to spotlight my beloved Sweet as a Peach Suite. The Designer Series Paper! The Stamps! The Dies! They have inspired so much creativity in my studio and this is actually the pop-up birthday card I made and sent my team members over the past 12 months:

It opens up to an EXPLOSION of peaches and birthday wishes:

It’s easy to make this explosion insert: Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper 6″ x 6″ and fold in half, then open it up and fold it in half DIAGONALLY in the opposite direction. Unfold it again, tuck the diagonal folds inside and glue the square pieces on the outside of the mechanism to the inside of the card. TIP: Observe the direction of your patterned paper and insert it into your card with the patterns going the right direction.

The best way it fits in your card is by making a binding on the top (or side, depending on orientation) of your card. For this card, I used a piece of 11″ x 4-1/4″ card stock scored at 5-1/2″ and 6-1/2″, then tied that shut with a piece of linen twine, with the second score on the top side of your card to help it open well. It makes the opening smaller than a traditional card and the explosion piece fits nicely inside.

The Sweet as a Peach Bundle (stamps + dies) is on sale through March 21st for 20% off in the Savings are In Bloom sale (along with the Mini Cut & Emboss Machine that the dies fit in), so now is the time to collect it for your craft stash! Retiring items are only while supplies last.

You are now ready to travel through the rest of the Retirement Parade! Hop through all the gorgeous retiring product projects below ~ you won’t want to miss any of the other “last chance” products we’ve loved and collect the fabulous ideas shared!

If you want to add these products to your craft studio before they are gone, you may order them from your demonstrator. Don’t have a demonstrator? Click the links below to shop from my Stampin’ Store!

Ready (or not) for Retirement

Last-Chance Products

Ready or not it’s Retirement Time! Stampin’ Up! has just released the list of retiring products and some items are on sale. Now is the time to get those items on your wish list ordered before they are long gone.  

Here are my Top 3 Tips for the Retirement List:

  1. In Colors: All 2020-2022 In Color inks, paper, and embellishments are retiring. These items usually sell out quickly so don’t forget to add ink refills and extra cardstock to your craft stash. You don’t want to miss having these gorgeous colors in your collection!

  2. Bundles: Bundles, with their 10% savings, all retire! Even if the bundle items carryover to the next catalog the discount does not – so if you have your eye on a bundle, get it now and save!

  3. Stamps vs. Accessories: Retiring stamps are available through 2 May 2022. All other retiring items, such as paper, embellishments, and dies are only available while supplies last, so you don’t want to wait and miss out.

New at SU! Case the Catalog Cactus Cuties

This month we are having so much fun expanding our creativity by getting inspiration from the Annual Catalog in our hop around the world! When you “Copy And Selectively Edit” – or CASE – a project from the catalog, you’ll expand your crafting ideas in ways you never dreamed of.

For instance, I was inspired by THIS card on page 157 of the Annual Catalog using the All for Baby bundle:

Using the Cactus Cuties from the January-June Mini catalog, this is my project inspired by that one:

It was surprisingly easier than I imagined! Here HOW TO:

  • On a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of basic white card stock, mask off the card at 1.75″ using washi or painters tape. Use a blending brush to add Pale Papaya ink to the first panel, getting lighter as you move up the card. Repeat and mask off the Papaya side AND farther down the card at 3.5″ for Soft Succulent. Then mask the first two colors and blend on Misty Moonlight.
  • Lay the mask over the card front and use a sponge dauber to color the pattern over the same colors. You may want to keep a mask over the other sections so you don’t get the colors mixed, but I just eyeballed it! It will help to tape the mask down on your desk so it doesn’t move and your card under the mask.
  • Stamp and fussy cut cactus. I used the punch only for the flowers.

Isn’t that just FUN? I had a blast making this card, truly!

Now you can now move on to Annette’s post to see how she was inspired by the annual catalog to create her project with the Symbols of Fortune suite from the January-June catalog. I hope this helps you look at the catalog as an Idea Book every day.

We are closing in on the end of the Annual Catalog, and that means we must say good-bye to the 2020-2022 In-Colors. Two of those colors are featured in the #tgifc358 color challenge this week and that got me dreaming of this sunny card:

Mother All Flowers Remind Me of You

I had an extra daffodil I had embossed and colored for my last project sitting on my desk, and since my mother looked forward to them each spring, it made sense to create a Mother’s Day card with it.

You can make this too!

Measurements:  
Pear Pizzazz cardstock: 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼” for card base
Fresh Freesia and Vellum cardstock: 3-1/2” x 4-3/4”
Basic White: 3-3/4” x 5”
Seam Binding ribbon: 14”

Instructions:
1. Emboss the Fresh Freesia card stock with Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. 
2. Using white ink and embossing powder, heat emboss the daffodil bunch in bottom right corner of vellum card stock and greeting on top left corner of Fresh Freesia card stock. Rip the top right corner of vellum away, being careful not to tear through embossed daffodils. 
3. Turn the vellum card stock over and color image with Stampin’ Blend markers.
4. Adhere Fresh Freesia layer to White card stock. Line up vellum over Freesia and use Take Your Pick took to pierce holes in the 3 corners to insert small white round brads through. 
5. Tie ribbon around the layers, then adhere to front of card with dimensionals.
