IMG_5629-(W)

Say hello to the NEW 2020-2022 In Colors!

Tomorrow the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! catalog goes live and the thing I look forward to the MOST are the new colors. Let me introduce you:

BUMBLEBEE: This hue is a smidgeon more mustard-y than Crushed Curry and very on-trend in fashion and home decor currently!

CINNAMON CIDER: A warm tone that reminds me of the sandstone of my hometown of St. George, Utah, but more brown than red.

JUST JADE: If you are looking for the Emerald City, this is your color! Wouldn’t it be lovely on a monochromatic care using the other greens as well?

MAGENTA MADNESS: A vibrant pink that will give your projects a pick-me-up and pop of color!

MISTY MOONLIGHT: A dark denim color that will be a neutral you gravitate to for masculine cards.

You’ll be able to add all these to your cart beginning June 3rd, including ink pads & refills, card stock, Designer Series Paper, ribbon and accessories, along with the new Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set that I used for these cards.

Thanks for shopping MY STAMPIN’ STORE

Ornate Garden Specialty DSP Card

The think I love MOST about the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite is the DESIGNER SERIES PAPER!152488g

Some of the sheets of this paper (inspired by Victorian Foils) have gold foil designs on one side and they are so very frilly and feminine: IMG_5145-(W)

This card is a unique way to see BOTH sides of the paper by using the DSP as your card base. I’m sharing a tutorial and you can click on any of the project pictures to download it! It opens up accordion style like this: IMG_5146-(W)-1

If you struggle with die cutting detailed dies (like the ornate frames in this suite of paper crafting products) I shared a TIP on this Facebook Live Video that will make die cutting SO MUCH EASIER for fancy things like this!

Got a lot to say in your card? Add another layer of card stock in the first fold and you can write a longer message to the recipient: IMG_5147-(W)

New Coordination: Crafting Made Sweeter

 

Sale-A-Bration Coordination Product Release

Do you have a combination of food that you crave? It’s caramel and chocolate for me! While they are both great on their own, they are even BETTER TOGETHER!

Just like food, crafting is sweeter when you have the perfect combinations. Stampin’ Up! has made favorites from the Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration reward items even better with new coordinating products, just released.

The popular Sale-A-Bration reward stamp set, Happy Birthday To You (#152308), and the Special Someone stamp set (#151643) from the Mini Catalog are awesome on their own, but paired with their coordinating dies or framelits,  crafting sweet cards is faster and easier.

You’ll also be PLEASED AS PUNCH when you see the new Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper (#153558). It coordinates with 4 different punches!

The coordinating products are only available until March 31st or while supplies last. I’m predicting some will sell out, so don’t wait to get your new favorites!

More Love to Mail

But wait! There’s MORE! Yesterday I shared a Pink/Red/White card (or Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Whisper White), but if you haven’t had time to watch my Lunchtime Live Crafting Videos on Facebook each Monday, you may have missed some of the other Valentine themed projects I’ve been creating from the From My Heart Suite by Stampin’ Up!~ so I thought I’d share some here.

IMG_4399-(W)

If you have a hard time choosing which side of your Designer Series Paper to use on a card, make THESE CARDS instead, because you don’t have to choose! You can see one side on the front of the card and enjoy the other side of the DSP on the inside of the card! IMG_4398-(W)

They are simple enough to make with elementary students, too!

A few weeks ago, I demonstrated a few ideas for a party or small gift and made this fun tin with the same suite stuff:IMG_4385-(W)

One thing I really appreciate is that if you LOVE all these coordinating products, Stampin’ Up! has made it very easy to get them all (with a bit of a discount) with just one item from my Stampin’ Store! Of course, you can still pick and choose the products you like best (or order more of the things you LOVE).

Thanks for stopping by and may all the love you send come back to you!

What’s New at SU! Peaceful Poppies Suite

Whats new (2)Hi there, crafty friend! With the NEW January – June Mini Catalog, our international group of demonstrators are coming together to showcase the Peaceful Poppies Suite, and trust me when I say, they are irresistible (the stamps, the projects AND the demonstrators!)

JAN_JUNE MINI“I don’t need any more floral stamps,” I told myself when I went to OnStage last November, when Stampin’ Up! released the mini catalog to demonstrators. “I’ve got plenty, so I’m NOT going to buy any more.” Then I saw THAT COVER, and my willpower went about as far as Dorothy across the poppy field in Oz…

Today I’m sharing a photo frame project using the Peaceful Moments bundle. You can order this bundle and save 10% when you get the stamps and coordinating dies together ~OR~ you can let the poppies work their magic on you and succumb to the entire Peaceful Poppies SUITE (like yours truly).

IMG_4349-(W)

I found this adorable wooden photo frame at Dollar Tree (only a buck!) and used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to cover the front – I demonstrated how to do it on different frame in my Monday Lunchtime Crafting Live on my Facebook page.

IMG_4347-(W)

The dies make these stunning layered flowers and leaves and I just couldn’t stop adding layers!

A 3/4″ strip of copper foil sheet (stamped with StazOn ink) made a perfect “name plate” for the bottom of the frame: IMG_4344-(W)

To create the ends of the faux plate, just stick it into your Everyday Label Punch like this:

IMG_4353

The photo is from our trip to OntarioCanada to visit Ed & Carolyn Helder last September. I met Carolyn through Stampin’ Up! years ago and we’ve become dear friends and this was certainly one of our most enjoyable vacations OF ALL TIME! How grateful I am for the connections created through crafting. (Carolyn, if you see this, pretend to be surprised when it comes later for your birthday)

I’ll share the supply list below if you happen to pick up a frame from the dollar store, but if you are ready to pop along our blog hop, enjoy Judi’s poppy-themed project next, or back up to Brenda’s Blog.

What’s New at SU! ~ Bird Ballad Lanterns

Whats new (2)

Greetings, friends: I’m glad you are here for our “summertime stamping” themed blog hop! The What’s New at SU! group is comprised of demonstrators from around the world who are excited to share the latest Stampin’ Up! ideas with you, and I know you’ll find inspiration to create your own versions (or borrow one of ours).

I love thinking of ways to use my paper crafting supplies for projects that are unusual, and when I think of summer, I think of barbecues and picnics with family and friends! So why not a little tabletop decor?

IMG_2303 (W)

The beautiful new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (DSP) was a fine choice for these paper lanterns and they were super simple to make!

IMG_2311 (W)

For the small round lantern, you’ll need a piece of 6″ x 12″ DSP. Score it at 1″ along the top and bottom, then cut vertical lines at every inch between the two score lines. Cut two strips of contrasting DSP 1″ x 12″ to reinforce the top and bottom edges, if desired, and a 1″ x 10″ strip for the handle. Wrap the paper around and attach the sides together at the back.  I inserted the handle between the lantern and outside reinforcement strip using Tear & Tape adhesive. I also curled the paper with my bone folder a bit to keep the round shape. Then I set it over a small jar with a battery-operated candle!

IMG_2309 (W)

This tall lantern is easier (if possible)! It’s a piece of 9″ x 9″ DSP and you score it at 1″, 4.5″ and 8″, then fold at the 4.5″ line and cut at 1″ from the fold just to the edge of the score lines:

IMG_2293 (W)

When you unfold the paper, it looks like this:

IMG_2294 (W)

Follow the same instructions for finishing this lantern. You could make them any size: I simply suggest measuring the jars you are going to wrap them around and cut the width to 1″ longer.

Now you are ready to party on to the next blog which is Terry’s (or back to Margriet’s blog)!

Your comments are welcome and appreciated! You can order the supplies to make your own lanterns from your demonstrator, or if you don’t have a demonstrator, please shop from my Stampin’ Store!
