Stamp ‘N Hop: July 2020 – In Colors

Hey Stampin’ Friends, it’s been a few months since I’ve been able to participate in the Stamp ‘N Hop! Welcome back! This month we are sharing projects created with Stampin’ Up! In Colors. If you are hopping along, you’ve come here from Kristie Wilson’s blog.

If we haven’t met yet, I’m Caroline and I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator here in the US. I hail from a small town in Michigan and I’m so excited to share my creations with you!

I’m in love with the new 2020-2022 In Colors! They are so bright, vibrant, and bold when put together, but they have their own personalities when they stand alone. The Flowers for Every Season Suite showcases the new In Colors perfectly. When I saw it in the catalog I knew I would need to use it for quick and easy thank you notes!

I used a card from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack and one of the Misty Moonlight cards and envelopes from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes to create this card. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Misty Moonlight on Magenta Madness.

Then I took the twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to accent my sentiment banner. I also used the Pumpkin Pie (I think they have more of a yellow hue than orange) rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels to add some sparkle.

If you don’t already have a demonstrator I would love to assist you with all of your Stampin’ Up! needs! Please feel free to use the links below to add items to your cart!

CASE the Catalog: So Grateful

If you didn’t already know this, the catalogs that Stampin’ Up! releases 3 times a year are full of great ideas! In fact when I first started creating with Stampin’ Up! products the catalog was actually called an Idea Book. I always know I will find amazing inspiration with each publication at this year has proven no exception!

The card I’m sharing with you today is on page 1 of the catalog. That’s right we just barely made it inside the cover and I already found something that wow’d! This card features the Ornate Style Bundle and the Ornate Thanks stamp set.

I used Versamark ink and Gold embossing powder for my flower image (I didn’t yet have my In Color Inks when I created this card) and I just love how it turned out!

Thank you for checking out my creation today! Be sure to subscribe for instant updates when I post!

Colour Combo Blog Hop: June 2020

Here we go again! It’s time for the monthly Colour Combo Blog Hop. This month I’m so excited because I got to use brand new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Products on my project! On top of using brand new product I love this colour combo!

Normally, I would pair a more saturated or bolder green with Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight because they are in the Bright color family, but this called for Soft Sea Foam and I think it’s perfect! One of my favorite parts about participating in color challenges is getting to see unexpected combinations come together.

I used the new Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set for the focal image on this card. Even though this set is a photopolymer stamp set I recommend using the Stamparatus with this set. The main image is large and may need to be stamped a second time to ensure even pressure. After I stamped a the main image and added the center and leafy accents I used my Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut my stamped images and the Soft Sea Foam frame.

I used the new A Grand Kid Stamp Set for the sentiment. I love the font used for “Congratulations”. This is Flirty Flamingo stamped on Daffodil Delight cardstock. I used dimensionals behind the Soft Sea Foam frame and the Daffodil Delight banner and added 3 Rhinestones for extra sparkle! Below is a list of what I used to create this card.

We’re In This Together

Last week I shared a promotion that Stampin’ Up! was offering where you could order and download a PDF full of sassy social distancing and quarantining sentiments! Well, this week I’m sharing some of the cards I put together with a few of my favorite sentiments.

I hope this reminds you to #spreadsunshine! I’ve been seeing a lot of rainbows as inspiration lately whether posted in windows, drawn on sidewalks with chalk, or using various stamp sets, dies, or creative techniques to make cards to share. I thought I would join in on the rainbow fun (and use up some of my soon to be retire DSP).

I love the look of black and white with all of the colors of the rainbow! Below I’ve listed all of the products I used that are currently available. During this time I’ve been able to clean and organize my craft room a bit and I found an almost used up package of black rhinestones so I decided to use them on these cards! While black rhinestone aren’t currently available from Stampin’ Up! I do have a trick to share with you…sharpie markers. Use a black sharpie marker and color over a Rhinestone Basics Jewel to create black rhinestones. Our Stampin’ Blends markers work really great for this technique if you want a color of rhinestone that doesn’t exist.

Colour Combo Blog Hop: May 2020

Thank you for stopping by today, I’m so happy to be participating in another Colour Combo Blog Hop! My favorite part about this hop is seeing the different interpretations of the combo.

I created this card using one of my favorite floral set from the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, Beautiful Friendship. I find that this stamp set is my go to when I need to make a thoughtful card and right now we all need a little more thoughtfulness! The sentiment is from Tasteful Textures and can’t we all agree it’s important to take time to feed our souls!

I stamped the largest flower image in Crumb Cake ink stamped off once to give it an even more subtle imprint. Then I stamped the rose trio image once in full strength Calypso Coral and then again, but twisted to offset the image. I added in Soft Sea Foam leaves because you can’t use this set without the leaves! Finally I stamped the sentiment from Timeless Textures in Gorgeous Grape.

Normally, I would add sparkles (hello, it’s in the name) or embellishments to my cards but this card didn’t seem to call for any rhinestones or pearls. If you want to make this card I’ve listed the products I used below. I also have a variation on this card here.

Again, thank you so much for stopping by today and I encourage you to click the next button to continue on this hop. The creators who participate are amazing and you should totally check out what they are sharing!
