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:

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.

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.

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!

Split Panel Shaker Card

Combining unique techniques to create a one-of-a-kind card is so gratifying– This is one I shared on my Facebook Lunchtime Live Crafting a few Mondays ago and I finally edited the video tutorial to share with you!

IMG_6035-(W)-2-(W)It’s a Split Panel card with a Mason Jar Shaker Dome and you can make it in many colors~ I used the 2020-2022 In Colors.

New at SU!- Sunflowers are for Celebrating!

Whats New Header

With the premier of the NEW 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog at the beginning of June, our International group of demonstrator friends are Hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas featuring our favorite new FLORAL stamps!

It was a surprise to me, but the Celebrate Sunflowers have cheered me up immensely after the uncertainty of the past few months:

IMG_5922-(W)

I paired it with my beloved Buffalo Check background in a vibrant new In Color: Magenta Madness! Isn’t that just so Daisy Duke?

Even the inside of the card brings a smile to my face:

IMG_5923-(W)

The Stitched Rectangle and Stitched So Sweetly dies made the layers come together quickly. I know you may be as anxious as I am to get your hands on the NEW Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine and here’s some good news: The standard machine will be available for customer orders on September 1st!

Would love to hear from you, then hop over to Tricia’s blog!

Simple Sunflower Celebration Card

Send a little sunshine with a sunflower card!

IMG_5662-(W2)

The new Celebrate Sunflower stamp set is sensational to stamp with!

One detail I love is the subtle embossing folder: I adhered the vanilla card stock to the cinnamon cider layer before running it through this often overlooked tool…and it gives it a texture like a painter’s canvas:

IMG_5717

While I only used the stamps for this project, there are coordinating dies and when you bundle the stamps & dies together, you save 10%.

I used this card as an invitation for my annual hostess appreciation brunch and it was an easy one to make in multiples. If you would like an invitation to next year’s hostess appreciation event, June is a fine time to hold a virtual (or in-person) Stampin’ Up! party because when your total reaches $250, you earn an additional $25 in Stampin’ Rewards to spend!

Host in June

Shoot me a message and let’s plan a party with your friends!

In-troducing In-Colors, 2020-2022

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

A Color Revamp

A question I fear: “What is your favorite color?”

Me: WHY ARE YOU MAKING ME CHOOSE? It’s like asking which child is my favorite: It depends on which one is making me happy at the moment!!

Just kidding (kind of)…but colors are the same for me: If it’s fall, I’m using earth tones for my creations. Am I trying to cheer someone up? Then it’s bright, vibrant hues. My favorite changes as often as my underwear!

Speaking of changes, I’m looking forward to this one from Stampin’ Up! in June:

color revamp

Keeping things fresh and on-trend, we are updating our palette…and you are going to love it too.

First, let’s bid adieu to our 2016-2018 In-Colors:

Screen Shot 2018-04-10 at 12.48.30 PM

If you need refills for your ink pads, card stock and coordinating ribbon or embellishments of those colors, make sure you ORDER ASAP as they are always the first to be depleted!

We’ll continue our In-Color offerings, which are current and fresh hues that stick around for 2 years:

Screen Shot 2018-04-10 at 12.41.33 PM

Then we’ll say good-bye to a few classic colors and hello to new (and returning) ones:

Color Revamp swatches

Are you going to miss some of the retiring colors? Remember to stock up quickly, as they are only while supplies last!

The NEW (and returning colors) will be available on June 1st, so start your wishlist.

Once we’ve done all the shuffling, the new color families will look like this, with Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Whisper White forming a new “Basic” Collection:

Screen Shot 2018-04-10 at 12.27.52 PM

Whew! That’s a LOT to process, but I hope you spy a few colors you can’t wait to get your hands on and your fingers in!

Check out all the items that are retiring from the current catalog by May 31st, or while supplies last, by visiting my Stampin’ Store.

Label Me Pretty In Color

Folks who have had near-death experiences say that there are more colors in Heaven than we can imagine: That’s something I look forward to! Meanwhile, I’ll enjoy the new In Colors that Stampin’ Up! releases each year.

This year the colors are (clockwise from top left): Berry Burst, Lemon-Lime Twist, Fresh Fig, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide. Even the names evoke images in the color they describe!

Label Me Pretty

I’ve created a tutorial for you and the cool thing about it is that you can make 40 cards from the few supplies in just a few hours (or one hour with a friend)! To order any of the supplies, click on the images below:

A Gift Bag for the New Mr. & Mrs.

Is your refrigerator covered with wedding invitations like mine? 
You need to make a few of these to have on hand: Just drop in a gift and go! 

I’m kind of in love with the new Mint Macaron In-Color for 2015-2016: It’s so elegant! Paired with the new Tip-Top Taupe (another new In-Color) it’s a perfect marriage of color (pun intended). The gorgeous Dotted Lace trim comes in all 5 of the new hues, too. I picked up the handled-bag at the dollar store, but everything else can be found in my online store.

And if you don’t have the Bow Builder Punch, order it immediately. Seriously.

Serendipity that this coincides with the #TGIFC08 challenge and co-ordinates with their colors, too:

Thanks for checking in and wishing you wonderful weddings!

Season of Love

Should love be in season all year long? I think so! Especially since my last name is SpendLOVE (I’m pretty lucky in the name department…and he thinks I only married him for his car, pshaw…)

So this LOVE-ly card could be a Valentine, a bright Springtime wedding or just because you need to spread the love and was created with one of Stampin’ Up!’s new Photopolymer stamp sets called Snuggles and Smooches and the 2013-2015 In-Colors. Click on the photo for a printable .pdf tutorial!

Did you know that for each $50 product you purchase from my Stampin’ Store you can choose a Sale-a-Bration product FREE? And one of the choices is the Blendabitilies Markers from the catalog! Since I used the Coastal Cabana Markers to color the glimmer heart on this card, you could choose those as your Sale-a-Bration reward when you place your order: Use code 139923 to get them free.
