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!).

New at SU: Beautiful Day for Love

It’s the New at SU! Design Team “Moms, Dads, Brides and Grads” blog hop!

Our international design team wants to help YOU get ready for all the big events coming in the next few months, so visit all the posts and PIN your favorites to try. I had fun creating this card for brides (and grooms) on a wedding day using the Blessings of Home Bundle…and BONUS, it’s perfect for gifting money to the newlyweds as it’s a large slimline card that fits in our coordinating Slimline envelopes

For this size of card, start with a piece of 8.5″ x 7″ card stock and score it in half at 3.5″ (finished card is 8.5″ x 3.5″).

Have you ever tried Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils? They are easier than you’d think to use and they give this card a soft effect, different than my usual preference for Stampin’ Blends. This is literally how I started…just by scribbling color onto my Watercolor Paper:

I do TRY to follow the lines and details of the image, then I use the Water Painters to blend the colors out, working from lightest to darkest. A tip for watercoloring: You will have MUCH better success when using Watercolor Paper or SU! Shimmery White paper, as they hold up to the moisture best and won’t “pill up” when you add water.

Once dry, use the dies to cut out the image for the front of your card. I’ve layered it onto some lovely Designer Series Paper.

I’m also practicing (but not proficient, yet) the art of the double bow, which I call “The Tammy” in honor of fellow demonstrator Tammy Wilson, whose cards are immediately identifiable by her lovely bows. Luckily for you AND me, she’s made a video, which I’ve watched and attempted numerous times on the Stampin’ Up! Facebook page. With enough practice, I’m confident my double bows will get better.

All the supplies I used are listed below, and you are ready to travel on to the next post in our Blog Hop:

In-Color Sunflowers in Bloom

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:

During March, Stampin’ Up! has the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine on sale for 20% off, plus some stamp & die bundles are on sale that can be used in the mini machine…including the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle. I’ll share more about this tomorrow, but this is the card I created for the color challenge, using items from the Savings Are in Bloom promotion.

If you have Bumblebee, Magenta Madness (or Just Jade, Midnight Muse and Cinnamon Cider) ink pads in your stamping supplies, make sure you order the refills for your ink pads along with extra card stock NOW so you can continue crafting for a long time with these beloved colors! Once the Retiring List is announced ON MARCH 23, those are traditionally the first things to sell out.

Too Cute to Resist!

I gave my Sprinkled Ink Team the challenge to create a project using a color palette including a 2021-2023 In Color and this is the card I came up with (because you can’t ask your team to do something you aren’t willing to do)!

You know I love to combine a few challenges, so I borrowed some inspiration from the Global Design Project “Case the Designer” theme this week, where Emma Goddard’s card was a great starting point:

I flipped the black & white vs colored strip around so I could teach how to do the emboss resist technique: It’s an easy WOW that makes any card irresistible (see what I did there?).

To do this, you simply need to emboss your image in white or clear embossing powder onto white card stock, then blend ink over your embossed images~ the embossed images resist the ink and appear magically!

Watch HOW here:

Remember: When you buy the Dragonfly Garden BUNDLE (stamps + punch) from my Stampin’ Store in June, you get 3 free projects in the mail! Consider this card a bonus idea 🙂

Flowering Cactus In Color

While I’m a native southwestern girl, I confess I’m not really into southwestern decor. However, the Flowering Cactus Product Medley caught my attention in the Jan-June Catalog with a fresh palette and adorable images and fonts that really made me want to play with it.

Enter the #GDP293 color challenge with 3 new In Colors, and they’ve got me reaching for that Flowering Cactus…

While stamping the background, it’s not going to look good until you are almost finished stamping…don’t worry if it looks a mess, it will all work out fine!

This is the type of card you have to intentionally mail: Can you think of a friendship that has become richer through the years because you’ve been through a lot of “sticky” situations and “dry” seasons? Write down those memories and be grateful that you are closer because of them.

Don’t miss the chance to add the Flowering Cactus Product Medley to your stamping stash: It retires in June!

New at SU! ~ Papaya, Peaches & Pockets

New Stampin’ Year, NEW IN COLORS! Welcome to our May 2021 New at SU! Blog Hop where we are sharing the 2021-2023 In Colors with you in a fresh new way: by sharing Fun Fold Cards to try in your own craft studio! You’ll want to PIN all these terrific card ideas, so let’s get hopping around the world with our design team so you can give it a try sooner than later!

I chose to focus on the Pale Papaya color because it happens to match my favorite Designer Series Paper, “You’re a Peach” and I started with the In Color Vellum – which is shimmery on one side, and oh, so pretty!

On to my project, a Vellum Slide-Out-Pocket gift card holder:

My card was inspired by fellow demonstrator Rachel Tessman

What a PEACHY way to give a gift card!

Here are the pieces you need to make this card:

  1. Pale Papaya Vellum: 11″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 2-1/4 from one end and 3-1/4″ from the opposite end.
  2. Designer Series Paper: 7-3/8″ x 3-1/2″. If your paper has a direction, you’ll want to score at 2-5/8″ from the top (so your pattern will go the correct way on the pocket) and 3/8″ from the bottom. When you assemble the pocket, the 3/8″ edge will actually adhere toward the top of the card (see image 3)
  3. Basic White card stock: 3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ plus scraps to stamp on
  4. Pear Pizzazz card stock: 3-3/8″ x 2-3/8″
  5. Pale Papaya ribbon: 18″

I embossed the Pear Pizzazz card stock with the lovely Stitched Greenery die, then stamped and die cut my peach images (TIP: Ink up your peach stamp with Pale Papaya ink, then use a sponge dauber to lightly add a bit of Polished Pink ink to the edges)

Then follow these steps to assemble your card:

There is only Tear & Tape adhesive on the edges of the Designer Series Paper pocket and the 3/8″ top edge of the pocket, and then on the same spot on TOP of the vellum to adhere the card stock panel to the front of the card. No other adhesive is necessary!

I stamped “Happy BIrthday” on the back side of the front panel before assembling the card so it shows through when you open it.

Products used are listed below, and I appreciate your comments! Then jump over the pond to our Columbian in Germany~ Ximena’s post to find another fancy fold card featuring the In Colors:

New at SU! Seeing In Color

Whats New Header

If COLORS cheer you up, you are going to be giddy hopping through a rainbow of projects featuring the 2020-2022 In-Colors crafted for you by Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world!

I felt like starting off with ALL 5 of these new hues and the *best* way to show them off is with the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards and coordinating cards & envelopes:

The entire Flowers for Every Season suite revolves around the In-Colors debuting in the Annual Catalog: Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight! It’s amazing how beautifully these colors work together and shine on their own, as well.

These card require no (or very little) stamping, and can be put together in minutes with just a bit of adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals and a few embellishments in addition to the Memories & More products above:

IMG_6078-(W)

The LOVE card on the Just Jade base is as simple as it gets: Just adhere one of the 4″x6″ cards to the front of the cards and tuck it into the envelope!

IMG_6077-(W)

The card bases have a dotted frame you can center the smaller 2″x3″ card on. I cut a few sentiments (see below) from another one of the M&M cards to add emphasis, reminding me of the song I sung to my babies (and now they sing to their babies) on this Magenta Madness card.

IMG_6080-(W)

Layer a large and small card together, as on a Misty Moonlight version and add a bit of lace trim to make a blue Christmas card:

There really are flowers for EVERY season! Cinnamon Cider is the best neutral base for all the rest! On the card above, I used the stickers from the card pack for a focal point and sentiment.

IMG_6079-(W)

I finally pulled out a stamp for the sentiment on the Bumblebee card and used the In-Color Markers to ink it up on a tag from the sticker sheet.

Would love to hear how you liked these cards before hop on over to see Tricia playing with patterns and In Colors!

Masking (Crafting, not Covid)

The Mini Catalog Inspiration

Long before it was a Covid-19 thing, stampers were masking – in a fun way!

Masking is a simple technique that blocks off areas of a project to create white space. It can create a faux layering effect or highlight an area for a greeting or focal point. Masking can be loose and artsy with torn edges or precise straight lines or shapes depending on what you use to create your mask.

This card also features several new products from the gorgeous Flowers For Every Season Suite:

Celebrate Sunflowers Masked Card

Use a sticky note to cover the section of the card you want to leave blank. Stamp over the top and color image, then remove the sticky note to reveal the blank space. Add a greeting or border, as shown on the finished card.

TIP: Sticky notes are ideal for creating torn, punched, or die-cut masks because they are thin and the sticky section helps hold them in place temporarily without damaging your paper or cardstock.

Product List

Stampin’ Up! creates “suites” of coordinating products to make your crafting come together beautifully. The ease of adding everything with one click is the EASY BUTTON, but you may also purchase them individually.

The Flowers for all Seasons suite includes the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set shown above and others that work together in harmony for you:
