In Color Shimmer Vellum

Over the weekend I held a virtual meeting with my team via zoom.  We had so much fun getting together, chatting and stamping.  For our meetings I always provide a make and take packet for them.  We make the cards together.  This was one of our cards.  It not only showcases the new In Colors perfectly but it's also just gorgeous!  I used the Beautiful Trees Dies to die cut each of the rectangles in the In Colors.  This die is made for the greetings but it's perfect for just creating blocks of color.  Plus it adds a fun beveled edge that I just love.  


I added some details with the Forever Flourishing Dies and the new Shimmer Vellum.  If you haven't checked out this shimmer vellum put some on your next order.  It's soooo stunning!  The pictures in no way do it justice to the sparkle it gives!  I have a full supply list below.  You can shop for these products in my Online Store.

Flowers Of Friendship Tag With Basic Borders Dies

I think this years In Colors are some of my all time favorites.  Every time I sit down to stamp I'm always reaching for one of the new In Colors.  For this card I decided to combine three of them and they're gorgeous!  I'm also using the new Flowers of Friendship Bundle. This flower is so cute and so quick and simple to stamp and punch and be on your way! 

stampin' up, flowers of friendship, basic borders dies, tailor made tags dies

To add lots of dimension and pizzazz to my flowers I stamped them on Polished Pink cardstock in the same ink.  To add lots of depth to the flowers I used my dark Polished Pink Stampin' Blend marker to add some detail to the bottom of each petal.  I punched out the flowers and them trimmed them to fit on my stamped flowers.  The flowers are stamped on one of the new Tailor Made Tags-another HUGE FAVORITE!  To add lots of detail to the background I used the Basic Border dies to die cut lots of chevrons to add to the background.  The added detail is amazing!  I finished the card with some In Color Jewels.  LOVE!  I have a full supply list below.  Shop for these products in my Online Store.

Peekaboo Farm Spinner Card-VIDEO

Today's card is sooooo cute!!!  I shared this card yesterday in my weekly Facebook Live.  As soon as I saw the new Give It A Whirl Dies in the new catalog I was in love!  I knew these dies would be a quick favorite of mine.  The dies are not bundled with any specific stamp set, you have to buy them individually but that also means that you can use these dies with ANY set!  Look at what you have I bet you'll be surprised how many images you have that you could make into a spinner card.  You don't even have to include images, you could put a different greeting in each spot.  

stampin' up, peekaboo farm

For my card I went with the Peekaboo Farm Set.  OMG!  This set is sooooooooo cute!!!!  Of course I'm a sucker for any cute critter but these guys are the best!  The beauty of the dies is that as you turn the wheel the image changes in the window.  For my card I featured three of the cute farm animals in the set.  

stampin' up, peekaboo farm

I used post it notes to mask off where I didn't want the image to stamp and I colored each image with Stampin' Blends. To make the wheel nice and sturdy I die cut it with Thick Basic White Cardstock.  The dies are so intelligently designed that all you need is a die cutting machine.  Start by die cutting the top of the spinner mechanism, in my case that's my Bermuda Bay Cardstock.  This die will not only cut the finger slot to spin it but also the brad hole and add stitching all the way around.  Then you simply run it through one more time with your window piece (there's lots of window options in the die set).  You can place the window anywhere you want on the card, simply line up the brad hole on the window die with the die cut hole on your cardstock.  This will give you perfect, exact placement every, single time!  

Trim your Bermuda Bay DSP to 2 1/4" x 3 5/8".

The die set also includes arrow you can add to show how to spin your card, but it's pretty easy to figure out.  Make sure you check out the video for all the details on this card and tips to put it together flawlessly.  I have a full supply list below you can shop these products in my Online Store.

Sneak Peek!-Etched In Nature No Line Coloring

I have another sneak peek using the Etched in Nature Set.  Yesterday I shared a card with this set where I water colored the bird.  Today I want to share another card with this set, using Stampin' Blends and the no line coloring.  I can't even tell you how much I love this card!  I love the bird and how almost realistic he looks!  Since the focus on this card is the bird I kept the rest of the card very simple.  A little DSP, some Linen Thread and some sequins for shine.  But the bird is the star.  

stampin' up, etched in nature

To do the no line coloring, you'll need to stamp your image as light as you can.  I used Gray Granite stamped off twice!  Keep that first stamped off image close though, you'll want a darker image to refer to in case some of your lines are really light and harder to see.  Once you have your light image stamped you color, just as you would if you were working with a full stamped image.  The beauty of the no line coloring is that it looks seamless and you're able to go back and add the detail you want.  After the entire image was colored I went back in with my darker blends and drew in some of the line details I didn't want lost, like on his wing and chin.  I used a Black Stampin' Write marker to add his eye detail after it was completely colored.  No line coloring doesn't have to be scary and it doesn't mean that there are NO lines at all.  You can see I still have some stamped detail in his beak and legs.  It simply means that it's providing a guide for your coloring.  This will make it look more like you've drawn the image than stamped it.  It's so much fun.  If you haven't given it a try I encourage you do it!  Practice makes perfect!  I have a full supply list below.

Etched In Nature Watercolor

I've been so excited to share this card with you!  Demonstrators who attended Stampin' Up! virtual event On Tour in April received this set.  The set is Etched in Nature, it's in the new catalog and is artistic and full of fun nature images.  Since there were sooo many On Tour events around the globe at different times, demonstrators were asked not to share samples or images of the set until April 26.  Well here we are!  I'm soooo excited to share this!!!  When I saw this bird I wanted to watercolor it. The sketched detail in the stamp just screamed watercolor to me.  

stampin' up, etched in nature

To watercolor it I used my Water Painters and some ink that I smooshed onto some clear blocks.  I used Misty Moonlight and Magenta Madness for the bird, while keeping the branch earthy with Cinnamon Cider.  The legs and beak are Bumblebee.  When you watercolor it's important to use a good cardstock for water, I'm using our Shimmery White.  I used the Tin Tile Embossing folder for even more detail (sadly the Tin Tile Folder is sold out) and added some flowers from the Pierced Blooms Dies.  Gold accents were added with the Forever Greenery Ribbon pack and Metallic Pearls.  Items that are available to purchase now are listed in my supply list below.  The stamp set will be available on May 4, 2021!  If you love this set I have one more card to share on Monday featuring it!  Make sure to check back!

New Catalog Kick Off Class

Over the weekend I was so grateful to be able to host another in person class.  After only doing 4 in person classes last year, every in person class I host this year is super special.  I'm loving seeing all my friends and getting to create with them!  The class over the weekend was to kick off our amazing new catalog, I have 5 incredible cards to share!  These are the cards my guests got to make at my class, I don't have a supply list posted because these cards are exclusive for my class attendees.  If you're in the Albuquerque area I'd love to have you at my next in person class.  Contact me for details.  

The first card features the Pansy Petals Bundle.  This entire suite is so gorgeous but I especially love the stamps!  I paired up the stamps with some new DSP and some new In Colors.  Simply beautiful! 

The next card features the Biggest Wish Set.  This stamp set is affordable and packs a big punch.  I love the block greetings and the scripty greetings.  But the real star of this show is the In Color Shimmer Vellum.  Yep Shimmer Vellum-it's amazing!!!

Another big hit is the Flowers of Friendship bundle paired up with the Hand-Penned DSP!  Oh my goodness what a gorgeous card this is!  The gold bumblebee just tops off this card!  

Probably the cutest card of the class was the card with the Turtle Friends Set.  This little turtle and I are going to be best buds! I love all the detail on this card, the DSP, the clouds the coloring!  It's a winner!!!  

My absolute favorite suite in the new catalog is the Sweet As A Peach.  I knew this suite of products had to be in my first class!!!  I couldn't love this card any more!!  From the colors to the DSP to the baker's twine-I so love baker's twine!

Blending Brush Trees

I have one last card....for now....with the Beauty of Friendship Bundle.  I've shared four cards before this and it's my focus of my May Card Crate.  You can check out details on Card Crate here.  Don't miss this month it's amazing and features four other cards using this bundle.  Check out the other cards I've shared on my blog with this bundle on this post, this one too and don't forget this one! This tree might be my favorite.  I love all the light and dark textures on this tree.  

stampin' up, beauty of friendship, blending brushes

To get all this texture I used my Blending Brushes and blended together Soft Succulent, Just Jade and Shaded Spruce ink, then die cut it.  I made sure to leave some areas light and others nice and dark.  I love the natural blended look to it.  I did the same to the tree trunk, I blended Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake then die cut it.  Adding those little touches of color really make a difference.  I have a full supply list below, you can shop these products in my Online Store.

Flowers Of Friendship Coffee Box-VIDEO

Yesterday I went live on Facebook to kick off the catalog!  I love catalog kick off days!  There's always so much going on and there's so much excitement about new stuff!  It's an energizing day!  But on days where there isn't a catalog launch and we need some extra energy sometimes caffeine is the way to go.  I have a fun treat box today to share that will give anyone the energy they need, plus it's packaged super cute which always helps too right?!  This box holds a K Cup of coffee, of course you can substitute it for hot cocoa, chai, apple cider, I think nearly any hot drink now comes in a K Cup.  

stampin' up, flowers of friendship, pattern party

I'm using lots of new products on this box.  The bundle is the Flowers of Friendship Bundle.  It's a stamp and punch bundle and I know we all love punches.  This one is an incredible punch-trust me!  The greeting is from a new set Inspired Thoughts-a great set!!  The DSP is the new Pattern Party DSP.  I love this DSP!!  It's for sure one of my favorites!!
