Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Place inside the Scalloped Stripes Embossing Folder and zip through the Big Shot.
  3. Using the Alphabet Letters from the Pick a Pennant Stamp Set, stamp Happy in between the lines with Basic Black Archival Ink.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Run the triangle pennant die through the Big Shot with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Snip off the ends.
  5. Stamp the dotted triangle into Bermuda Bay Ink then onto the pennant pieces. Adhere to the center of the card with Snail Adhesive.
  6. Stamp the triangle pennant stamp in Fresh Fig ink then onto Whisper White Cardstock. Tip: Before picking up the stamp with a clear block, use the die as a template so that it will perfectly align when you crop it out with the Big Shot.
  7. Adhere the banner, slightly offset so that you can still see the polka dot beneath, with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Cut a 1″ x 1 3/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Flag the end with the Banner Triple Punch.  Stamp three dotted triangles down the middle in Bermuda Bay Ink.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
  9. Stamp the flower in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock (twice).  Use the coordinating stamps to add the Bermuda Bay and Lemon-Lime Twist Color and the coordinating dies to crop with precision.
  10. Stamp the tassels in Bermuda Bay Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Color the circles with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  Crop with the coordinating die and Big Shot.
  11. Crop a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock with the 2 3/8″ scalloped circle die from the Layering Circle Framelits using a Big Shot. Add Snail Adhesive to the back side to adhere Black Metallic Thread and then again to adhere to the card.
  12. Stamp “It’s A Beautiful Day” sentiment (Love What You Do Stamp Set) in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Crop it out with the Stitched Shape Circle Die using the Big Shot and a Magnetic Platform to hold it in place.   Adhere to the Bermuda Bay Cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  13. Adhere the flowers as shown with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  14. Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a final touch!

Sneak Peek Animal Outing Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog for #tgifc155 sketch challenge Baby Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Friday! TGIFC155

WOW! This week has rushed by so quickly.  I cannot believe it is Friday already!  I have been busy helping others with tax prep, using my new products and creating graphics this week. So, although my post is published a little late, at least it has been published!

This week’s sketch is amazing and I was so happy to use the NEW stamp set Animal Outing.  It was an all attendance giveaway at the Milwaukee #OnStage2018 I attended last weekend.

These images are SO STINKIN’ CUTE! I was so excited when I pulled this stamp set out of my #onstage2018 bag.  The artist has made shading a sinch by adding the shaded spots to the image.  You can quickly apply color with an Aqua Painter and it looks completed with one application.

I used my Paper Snips to crop out each of the animal images.  When the catalog releases on June 1st, Animal Friends Thinlits Dies will be available to order so you can quickly crop them out with your Big Shot.

I love the little details that they added to the images.  The koala peeking out of the kangaroos pocket, the bird perched on the rhino’s horn, the little frog sitting on the branch…#smitten.

There is Designer Series Paper that coordinates with this set, but since I don’t have it yet, I decided to show off the fabulous Nature’s Poem.  This is part of a Suite of Products (also called Nature’s Poem) that will be available June 1st, with the new catalog release.

The Skinny on the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Color Revamp

Stampin' Up! 2018 Color Revamp Graphic

I am so excited!  Stampin’ Up! has announced that they are updating their core color collections as well as adding the 5 new In Colors starting June 1st!  In addition, there is a fabulous new ink pad design that makes a wonderful ink pad ever more wonderful!  Here are several details that you’ll want to know:

THE DETAILS

There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.

In order to keep the color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White have been moved out of the Neutrals collection. Stampin’ Up! also moved a few colors (Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy) into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!

Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. You can refer to the old and new color charts in the 2018-2019 catalog when it’s released on June 1.

Color Revamp Charts & Summary PDF

 

NEW CLASSIC STAMPIN’ PADS

Lovely Lipstick Classic Stampin' Pad

 

In addition to new colors, Stampin’ Up! redesigned their ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and they improved the formula of the ink, as well!

Why the change to the case?

The case’s manufacturing mold was about to expire. Stampin’ Up! can only use a mold a limited number of times before they need to replace it, so they had to decide if they wanted to order more of the same molds or try to improve the design.   They chose to improve it!  Smart!

Stampin’ Up! wanted to align the updated case with the color revamp and improvements to the ink. In addition, they chose to time these changes with Stampin’ Up!’s rebranding and packaging updates. This way, when you invest in the new colors, you are also getting the new and improved ink pads at the same time!

What’s better about the case?

  • Less confusing to open.
  • Tighter fit between the lid and the base.
  • Stackable.
  • Improved labels and stickers.

How is the ink different?

  • Reduced ink bubbles.
  • Smoother coating of ink on the stamp.
  • Improved ink coverage.
  • You can re-ink the new ink pads with old re-inkers, you just won’t get the benefit of the defoamer that’s been added to the new re-inkers. The only exception to this is, you don’t want to use the Archival Basic Gray Re-inker on the new pads because it will ruin it.
