And now on to the card I’ve made for you today:

Hello baby

My only daughter is expecting her second child, a girl, in early August.   And a very dear friend is also expecting a baby in the early fall.  So please excuse me while I have “baby on the brain”!  But seriously, Stampin’ Up! has some of the most adorable baby stamps ever right now, and beautiful designer papers in both the Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalog.  My card today is a combination from both catalogs.

I absolutely love a good card layout to start out my designing.  And this card is no exception.  It’s basically the same layout as my Easter card I posted HERE.  It’s truly where all my design ideas come from.  I love the Mojo Monday card sketches, as well as those on Splitcoast Stampers posted on Wednesdays.  Here’s the sketch I used for my card:

SC532

Once you have a great layout, you just plug in the stamp set and coordinating accessories!  And Stampin’ Up! makes that so easy by giving us so many well-planned, coordinating products.

  • I began with the stamp set called Little Sunshine, a great set from the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  I love that this set coordinates with the Word Bubbles Framelits and makes adding a sentiment a snap.
  • I then went to the Annual Catalog to pull out Something for Baby stamp set and coordinating Baby’s First Framelits.  Purchase both items and save 15% on the bundle.  I was able to stamp the baby carriage in Crisp Cantaloupe ink then cut it out in a jiff with the Framelit and Big Shot.  Did you see the cute little Mini Silver Brads in the wheels?  And they’re so easy to set with the Paper-Piercing Tool and Stampin’ Pierce Mat.
  • Both designer papers come from the Annual Catalog as well – Lullaby – and another great choice would be Sweet Dreams in the Occasions Catalog.
  • The Hello Honey Quilted Ribbon is such a treat to work with!  It is a little thick, so I just popped up the whole card front on Dimensionals so there was plenty of room for the ribbon to ride in the back.  A double bow with the Whisper White Baker’s Twine cinches the ribbon up a bit.
  • You’ll want to purchase the items for this card soon.  The card is based on two of the five In Colors that are retiring soon – Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe.  All products containing the 2013-15 In Colors will go on the retiring products list on April 21st, and after that, you’ll only be able to buy these products “while supplies last”.  In the past, they’ve flown off the shelves.

And speaking of babies, here’s one of my “grandbabies” at Easter morning service.  He’s informed us that he’s no longer to be called “cute”.  But it’s okay if we call him handsome!

Happy Birthday with Sale-A-Bration

While it continues to be winter in Central New York State, the beautiful colors of this year’s Stampin’ Up!

  • There’s also a punch for the center of the flower – stamp it in Crushed Curry Ink and punch it out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.

Something for Baby

Something for Baby

I had so much fun bringing you this sweet baby card!  I was in the mood for a little experimentation, so let me tell you a few things about my card today.

  • I wanted some designer paper to place in the back of my image and nothing was working.  I just wasn’t happy with what I had.  So I decided to make my own!  I started with punching out some Whisper White cardstock stars from the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  I laid them onto an additional piece of Whisper White cardstock, and using a Stampin’ Spritzer with Daffodil Delight ink drops from the Ink Refill mixed with rubbing alcohol, I spritzed all over the cardstock.  When it dried I just shook off the star masks and voila!  Soon I won’t have to make my own masks.  Stampin’ Up! is introducing four different masks I’ll be able to use, but for now, this was a good way to make it work!  NOTE:  I did use Daffodil Delight ink refill because it tends to be a little lighter when you spritz.

I did the same thing to create an inside liner:

Something for Baby inside

  • The sweet little stack toy was created with Something for Baby stamp set and markers in So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar.
  • A Wooden Element was a great accent for my card.  I punched out a 1″ Pistachio Pudding cardstock circle and placed it on top, adding a So Saffron Button and some Baker’s Twine.  The new Fast Fuse was the perfect adhesive to attach my Wooden Element to the cardstock.
  • The sentiment comes from Something to Say stamp set and is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar ink.
  • I love the addition of a few rounded corners – it just seems to make the card.  I use my Envelope Punch Board for perfect corners every time.

Backyard Basics and Venetian Romance

Backyard Basics and Venetian Romance

Good grief – retired products are just FLYING off the shelves at Stampin’ Up!  I made this card 2 days ago to post for you today, and the stamp set for the tulip, Backyard Basics, has already sold out!  It’s important to get your order in right away before your favorites are gone for good!

I’ll show you the cad anyway, because it also includes other great products that are soon to retire.  You could always change the tulip image to something else.

  • I’ve loved the pretty colors in Venentian Romance designer paper, so I started with a piece that is Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.
  • The Soft Suede cardstock circle is cut out with the 3-1/2″ Circle Die which is also retiring.
  • The sentiment comes from Delightful Dozen stamp set, also retiring!  Grab this nifty set before it’s gone, too!
  • A Pistachio Pudding Boutique Details accents this card on top of a 1″ Soft Suede cardstock circle.  Be sure to grab these greate embellishments.  We still have a full year with the 2013-15 In Color palette.

Fresh Prints and So Very Grateful

red thank you

The bright, cheery colors of Fresh Prints Designer Paper take center stage in this card, another using So Very Grateful stamp set.  I sure am going to miss this beautiful set when the Occasions Catalog retires June 1st.  I'm having such fun with it – it's so easy to use!

  • I began my main image with Real Red cardstock and heat embossed the flower image using VersaMark Ink and White Embossing Powder.  Next I used my Real Red stamp pad and Aqua Painter to give some depth of color to the center rose. 
  • I added Rhinestones to the center flower and also to the bottom corner on top of some Baked Brown Sugar circles made with the Owl Punch.
  • The Coastal Cabana Ruffle Trim is so pretty and easy to work with – it ties a really nice knot.
  • Thank you is stamped with Baked Brown Sugar ink.

I'd love some feedback – do you like the new way I'm giving you the product list so that you have pictures of all of the items used?  Leave me a comment!

Creative Convention display projects

This past weekend was our team weekend-long Creative Convention, and it was a blast!  There was so much inspiration to take in!  There were displays where people could share what they've been working on, and althought the lighting wasn't so good, today I want to show you just a few of the amazing projects created by my team members. 

CC hope
Use Core'dinations card stock with an embossing folder, then lightly sand the top for this pretty tone-on-tone look.

 

CCbaby train
This is an adorable baby train showing off the In Colors as well as Zoo Babies stamp set.


CCbirthday
Here's another project showing off the In Colors, this time in a birthday card using Sketched Birthday stamp set.


CCframed piece
This is a pretty framed piece using Season of Style Designer Series Paper and the Color Me Christmas stamp set.


CCGrateful
Here's a beautiful card using the coordinating products Truly Grateful stamp set, Sweater Weather Designer paper and 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon.

CCSnowflake
Another card showing lovely coordinating products in the Holiday Catalog – Festive Flurry stamp set, Festive Flurry Framelits Dies and Winter Frost Specialty Designer Paper. 


CCtablesetting
How beautiful is this tablesetting, all created with the components in Christmas Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit and Winter Frost Specialty Designer Paper.


CCtree
Love this punch art idea with Mosaic Madness stamp set and coordinating Mosaic Punch.  So pretty!

BRAND NEW:  November's "Best of 25 Years" stamp set has just been released.  It's called "Best of Snow" and I am in love with the "Let it Snow image – it's a "must have"!  Here are the images.  You can also click here to view the full flyer:  Best of Snow Flyer

In Color Comparison

I'm sharing some cards today created by my team member Pat Miller to showcase the new In Colors and to give you a comparison of the new color to some of the existing core colors.

First up is Baked Brown Sugar.  You'll see it's between Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  It has a lot of gold tones in it – a really good addition!

IC Baked Brown Sugar

Next is Coastal Cabana sandwiched between a brand new core color, Bermuda Bay, and Pool Party.  It's a very green blue and now probably my favorite blue we have.

IC Costal Cabana

Introducing Crisp Cantaloupe!  This is paired with Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral.  In my mind, this is a much-needed color – we really don't have anything like this at all.

IC Crisp Cantaloupe

Now for Pistachio Pudding.  I find this color incredibly hard to photograph for some reason.  The picture below just doesn't do it justice.  It doesn't have as much gray in it as shown in the photo – a very nice light green.  You'll find it between Pear Pizzazz, another new core color, and Wild Wasabi.

IC Pistachio Pudding

Last up is Strawberry Slush!  I thought it was almost the same color as Melon Mambo (to the right) but you'll notice it has more yellow in it than Mambo.  It's a nice, bright pink but not too bright!  Rose Red is to its left.

IC Strawberry Slush

The new 2013-15 In Colors are sure to be some of your favorite colors to work with!  They're fresh, fun and very different from other colors we carry.
