Introducing the 2014-16 In Colors!

One of the many perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is to see brand new products well before the general public.  But I have a HUGE treat for you today!  I want to introduce you to the new 2014-16 In Color palette!  We’ll be working with these gorgeous colors for just 2 years, and I know you’ll fall in love with them!


From left to right, please meet Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss!  Now let’s look at them one by one!

Mossy Meadow

MOSSY MEADOW – Not only am I tall, dark and handsome, but I’m rich too.  And I’m deep, which is the complete opposite of shallow.  All the other colors are green with envy.  I’m green without envy.

Lost Lagoon

LOST LAGOON – I am calm and peaceful, and that’s hard to come by in this crazy world.  Maybe that’s why they call me lost.  Find me and I’ll soothe your soul.

Tangelo Twist

TANGELO TWIST – I am bright and vibrant – some might say I’m a bit flamboyant.  Sometimes people confuse me with my cousin, Tangerine Tango, but I am truly my own kind of orange.  Try me and you’ll see.


Hello Honey

HELLO HONEY – I’m sweet and subtle.  I won’t scream for your attention, but give me a chance and you’ll realize just how much I have to offer.  Soon you’ll see I’m as good as gold.

Blackberry Bliss

BLACKBERRY BLISS – I am deep and rich, sweet and juicy.  Plus, I’m purple, and who doesn’t need more purple in their lives?  You know you want me.

And did you notice a brand new stamp set?!  You’re going to be seeing this fabulous 11-piece set a lot in the coming months.  It’s from the brand new 2014 Annual Catalog due out June 1st!

Don’t Forget!
I’ll be hosting another In Color Club this year, just like in past years!  This is your chance to get all of the new In Color products each month for 5 months until you’ve gotten them all!  It will be similar but not exactly the same as last year’s In Color Club.  You can check out what it’s like at my post for the 2013-15 In Color Club HERE.  I’ll be posting this fun club as soon as I’m able to pre-order all of the products!

New Stampin’ Up! Rotary Addition

Rotary Cutting card

Look closely at the three strips of cardstock down the left side of the card.  They've all been cut with the brand new Small Scallop Stampin' Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade used with the Rotary Addition to the Stampin' Trimmer.

  • Color scheme is Smoky Slate, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush and Daffodil Delight.
  • I brought back an oldie but goodie stamp set for this card – Embellished Events.  This is a great all-purpose set, with 6 image stamps and 6 sentiments included.
  • Love the arrow paperclip from Cute Clips package, tied up with coordinating ribbons.

Stampin' Up! has put together a video showing how to use all the rotary accessories – please watch!

Here are two of the blade cartridges you can purchase –  Small Scallop Blade (pictured on right) and the Tiny Wave Blade (pictured on left).  I put a quarter in the picture so you could see how fine and delicate the cuts are – so pretty!

A Trio of Thanks

Trio of cards

I'm a sucker for sweet little 3"x3" gift cards.  They come together in a snap and are so handy for gift enclosures.  Attach one of these cute cards to a homemade jar of jam or a basket of assorted teas to let someone know how thankful you are for their kindness.

  • These little darlings are all about the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Paper!  With bold, smart colors like Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and Island Indigo, it's definitely an eye opener.
  • Paired with this terrific paper is Chalk Talk stamp set – you'll love all the greetings in this great set, and there are framelits and punches that coordinate, too!
  • Add a small Rhinestone to the heart – it's all the accessorizing you'll need!
  • Don't forget "envelope art" – so fun to have a matching image on the front.  I used Mosaic Madness stamp set to coordinate with the motif in the designer paper.

Item No. 130141 Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper $12.95
Item No. 107309 Square 3-1/8"x3-1/8" Envelopes (40) $7.50

Thinking of you on Mother’s Day

Thinking Of You

With only a little over two weeks to go before the new Annual Catalog is released, I thought I'd give you a little sneak peek today of some new products being introduced!  Here is a portion of the Gingham Garden Suite, sure to be a favorite this year.  I made this card for my daughter and daughters-in-law for Mother's Day, but it would work for many occasions.

  • The new stamp set featured is Kind & Cozy – lots of country-feeling images including my favorite (which I didn't even use!) which is a cute little tea cup.
  • The Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper contains Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz (yes, it's back!) and Whisper White – so bright and cheerful!
  • You're going to FLIP when you see the new Candy Dots – a brad system that has every permanent color we carry in adhesive tops.  Use any color Candy Dot on a Brad Base for a framed colored brad, or just use the Dots on their own.  Here I've used an Island Indigo Dot from the Regals Pack.
  • White Baker's Twine looks good with this suite.
  • Daffodil Delight card stock and the Scallop Trim Border Punch pair to create a nice edge.

Thinking of you back

Don't forget a little envelope art.  Kind & Cozy has the perfect images for this!  There's even a "made with love" stamp I've used for the back of my card.

Thinking of you inside

And I decorated the inside with a Whisper White card stock liner and some more stamping.
