Retiring In-Colours 2019-2021

Retiring Products Annual Catalogue 2020, Stampin' Up!, SU, Band Together, Better Together Dies, Background Technique, Blending Brushes, Ink blending on Embossing Folders

The Band Together stamp set and coordinating Detailed Band Dies featured in these cards are retiring. The intricate bands are lovely and you have a nice variety of sentiments to use on the outside and inside of cards.

To create the above card I used my blending brushes with some Mango Melody, Magenta Madness and Gorgeous Grape inks on Basic White cardstock. Then I embossed it with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder (now retired). The band across creates such an intricate frame.

This next card has been embossed first and then I took my Rococo Rose ink pad direct to the Pearlescent paper. The flowers were coloured in using sponge daubers – a simple and quick way to add colour to your images.

Ten Day Countdown to End of Sale-A-Bration – Day 6

We’re continuing our fun today with the our Countdown to the end of Sale-A-Bration. The Corner Bouquet stamp set is one that could be easily overlooked as by just looking at the cover, it doesn’t look that interesting. However, there are so many beautiful techniques that can be achieved with this set.

Simple, yet elegant this card makes use of 3 Sale-A-Bration items – including the Heal your Heart stamp Set and Flower & Field DSP. Adding a few layers with some simple stamping can create quick and beautiful cards.

Here’s another card with a simple layout which can be duplicated. Simple stamping makes mass production of cards a breeze. We all need so many thank you cards don’t we?

This sentiment is so apt for the times we are in at this moment. Some direct to stamp technique with our Stampin’ Write Markers make creating multi coloured images really easy. You can see me make all these cards by clicking below to watch the video.

Ten Day Countdown to End of Sale-A-Bration – Day 9

I love a card sketch and for today’s Sale-A-Bration countdown I have got 1 card sketch presented 4 ways. Simple and effective, a card sketch can get your creativity flowing and give you many options in the way you interpret it.

The Sale-A-Bration freebie Flower and Field Designer Series Paper provided my colour palette for my cards. Stampin’ Up! provides a useful tool at the back of the paper packs and in the catalogues. In it, you are given the colours that coordinate with the DSP (Designer Series Paper). Now, you don’t have to stick with it, but it sure makes it easy for creating.

My sketch was flipped horizontally and vertically giving 4 different cards.

The stamped images and sentiments are from the Touch of Ink stamp set. You can get this set free with any order of $180.

Being a two-step stamp set, this is a great set to create quick coloured images. Sentiments to complement many occasions make this a handy set to have in your stash.

The DSP has a lovely range of colours from neutrals and subtles to brights. This next card has a fun feel to it and is a great way of saying a cheerful ‘hello’.

Sale-A-Bration ends 28th February – only 9 days away. It’s the ideal time to get items on your Wish List and stock up on essentials such as adhesives and cardstock because you are going to get free items with it.

Our New at SU Blog Hop this month brings you projects featuring all our Sale-A-Bration products. There is a lovely array of beautiful products on offer – and all for free! Any $90 order placed can choose a free product until the 28th of February.

New at SU Blog Hop, Header

I’ve chosen a firm favourite and I think a front runner – the Darling Donkeys stamp set to create a simple fancy fold. The Flower & Field Designer Series Paper which I’ve used is another Sale-A-Bration product.

I used Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to colour in the donkey. I added some faint sponging in Pool Party as a sky and a bit of Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends for some ground to stand on.

This card opens up to reveal a die cut sentiment which I coloured with So Saffron and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.

If you haven’t got this cute donkey you may like to add it on your next order as your free set. Just remember, it’s only available until the 28th of February.

Thank you for visiting me today and I hope you come back very soon for lots more inspiration. Please click on the Next Blog button to see the talented Lisa Mackey’s project.

Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – Garden Wishes

Hello and welcome to our Ink. Stamp. Share monthly blog hop. Our theme this month is Spring/Summer Sale-A-Bration and I chose the Garden Wishes stamp set for a floral take on this theme.

I wanted to show a softer card using the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper. For the design of this card, I began by choosing my colour palette. I started off by picking Misty Moonlight which was a colour in the DSP. I do this quite often as it gives me a starting point to pick my coordinating colours. Plus with our amazing colour coordinated products it’s just easy to match cardstock and embellishments.

I watercoloured a panel of Shimmery White Cardstock with Pool Party and Misty Moonlight as a backdrop for the dandelion. Watercolouring is a great technique for achieving a soft look to your projects. Then I added some extra leaves die cut from Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Some extra colour was added with Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends. The edges of the flower and leaves were sponged with Soft Suede giving some warmth to the stark white edges.

Some Bumblebee Gingham Trim ties in with the dandelion and I’ve added a cute Ladybug Trinket to embellish the card. Isn’t it cute?

I hope my project inspires you to use your Designer Series Paper with alternate colour palettes and have fun creating! Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you.

aWow Blog Hop – Favourite Inspiration

Hi crafty friend,

Welcome to our first Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop for 2021. I always look forward to this blog hop as we have some fun and unique themes to work with. Our general theme for this month is Our Favorite Inspiration Source with a specific focus on the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and January-February 2021 Sale-a-Bration products. Chris Smith, one of our team members, came up with this fun idea.

AWOW Blog Hop Header

There are so many things than can inspire me – the beautiful work of other crafters, Pinterest (yes, I too do spend way more time than I should on it!), current home decor, seasons, colours. However, the one thing that inspires me the most is our Stampin’ Up! catalogues. These catalogues are pages and pages of inspiration. Countless times I go to it to get sketch ideas, colour combinations (like who would think of Real Red and Flirty Flamingo?), techniques, class ideas.

Just last week, I was in a complete creative shut down and couldn’t get anything happening in the craft room so I pulled out the Mini Catalogue and did a complete CASE of a card. This got me out of a creative rut.

Something else that can inspire my creativity are sketches. I LOVE card sketches or layouts. These just help me in my creative process. So today, I’ve combined both and picked a sketch from the new Mini Catalogue for my cards.

I’ve CASEd the ‘happily ever after’ card from Page 10 and used the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and Berry Delightful DSP. These 2 products are a free bundle which can be earned until 28th February with a $180 order.

I love this bright and cheerful Designer Series Paper which combines with the sentiments of the Sweet Strawberry stamp set to create such fun cards. This stamp set is a two-step stamp set but as I had run out of Poppy Parade ink refill, I used my Stampin’ Blends to colour the strawberries in. I stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzazz, adding a bit of extra colour with the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to tie in with the colouring used on the strawberries.

The vellum softens the strength of those Poppy Parade checks. I added a head embossed sentiment on Basic Black cardstock to pop against the bright colours.

This next card uses the Berry Blessings stamp set and I used the same card sketch. Just changing the stamp and the DSP sheet can alter the entire look of the card. I embossed the Vellum with the Painted Texture Embossing Folder to create a different look to my first card.

I hope you have been inspired by my cards to use your catalogues as a tool for getting lots of creative ideas. Thank you for stopping by my blog today and make sure to check out all the other beautiful projects made by the ladies on our team. Next on our hop is Cheryll Miller.
