Playful Penguins on Glitter Ice

The Playful Penguins stamp set has 3 cute penguins to create scenes with and you can dress them up in a scarf, bow tie or little santa hat (sooo cute). I love the fun font and sentiments that suit a variety of occasions.

Stampin' Up! Playful Penguins

I had so much fun creating this card with this pair of penguins. The blotchy shadow image was stamped several times in Seaside Spray to have them ‘grounded’. Then I added liquid glue and sprinkled Ice Stampin’ Glitter for some sparkle. This stuff looks so cool and adds texture to the card. 

Heat emboss the sentiment in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to achieve a crisp look for this ‘cool’ card.

Purple Posy and Delicata Ink Updates from Stampin’ Up!

Purple Posy Ink To Be Discontinued

Despite our efforts to resolve issues with Purple Posy ink, we have learned that the ink colour is still shifting over time. This means that the colour is coordinating more loosely than we typically allow with our colours. Due to these ongoing challenges, we have decided to discontinue Purple Posy classic ink. After 6 November 2019, the following items will no longer be available to purchase:

  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 150084)
  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (item 150091)
  • 2019–2021 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pad Assortment (item 150087)

However we have other Purple Posy items that are still available 

All of Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive ink colours are run through a vigorous series of tests to get ahead of challenges like this, and to ensure colours are accurate and meet our standards of coordination. Purple Posy did pass regular testing standards in time-simulating ovens, but we have now identified that it fell short when it came to actual time passing. The colour begins to shift once the ink has rested in the ink pad for about six weeks.

It is rare for Stampin’ Up! or our ink manufacturer to have such persistent issues with ink; Purple Posy has certainly been an anomaly. We completed full testing on 11 distinct batches of Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink before releasing the current version. We are now confident that no additional efforts would uphold our coordination needs over time. We appreciate your patience as we have worked through this manufacturing difficulty and regret that we are unable to share better news.

Delicata® Ink Pads and Refills Available While Supplies Last

We have received shipments of Delicata ink pads and refills (see item list below), and they will be available to purchase before the end for the 2019 holiday catalogue sales period (2 January 2020).

  • Golden Glitz Ink Refill (item 150712)
  • Silvery Shimmer Ink Pad (item 150709)
  • Silvery Shimmer Ink Refill (item 150710)

Due to amount of time it takes to receive shipments of these items, they will not be carrying over into the 2020 occasions catalogue. Additionally, when inventory for each item is depleted, that item will be turned off.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights #tgifc236

Hi friends,

It’s Melbourne Cup day over here so we get a holiday for a horse race. The horse racing doesn’t interest me in the slightest but a day off is good and it gives me a chance to get some crafting done.

Kylie's International Blog HIghlight

I’ve created my card for Kylie Bertucci’s international Blog Highlights for November with a theme of encouragement. 

TGIF236 Colour challenge

I was inspired by the colour challenge over at TGIF Challenges. These are such pretty, autumn colours.

I used the dandelion from the Sweet Silhouette dies to create the flower, adding a second flower in Calypso Coral behind the white one. Doing this makes the flowers stand out and creates more depth.

The background was created with embossing paste which was coloured with Crumb Cake ink refill. After the brick had dried, I stamped over it with the leaves from Very Versailles. This is a look that I really like as it adds subtle detail. The Very Versailles stamp set gets a lot of use in my craft room. It’s a great set.

Embossing paste brick background, Stampin up handmade card

The baker’s twine was coloured with the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend to coordinate with the elements of my card. I used the Woven Heirloom stamp set for the sentiment. The font in this set is so pretty. Then I die cut it with the Stitched Rectangles die. Over this, I stamped the long textured stamp from Woven Heirlooms, stamping off 3 times so it was a subtle background.

All the products I have used to create this card are listed below. Please leave me a comment or question. I’d love to hear from you.
