NOTE: The Mini Jam Jars are currently not available due to popularity.  This makes the You’re a Peach Suite Collection not available…BUT, the Sweet as a Peach Bundle | Item 155823 & the You’re a Peach 12×12 Designer Series Paper | Item 155686 are both available at this time.  The Mini Jam Jars have an estimated availability date of the week of July 12.

Begin with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 card base of Basic White Cardstock.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.

Crop the bottom of the card front about 1″ up from the bottom with the curved Basic Borders Die and a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

Adhere a 1 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of  You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper to a 4 1/8 x 5 1/2 piece of Basic White Cardstock with Stampin’ Seal.  Adhere to the inside flap of the card front as shown with Stampin’ Seal.

  • Flowers: Petal Pink  & Calypso Coral
  • Peach: Calypso Coral

TIP: Make sure your Classic Ink Pad isn’t over-inked to ensure the best impression.  I use a Bone Folder to move the ink to the edges if I cannot get a good image.

Crop the images with the coordinating Peach dies and a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink onto Basic White Cardstock.  Snip apart with Paper Snips.  Adhere “Thanks” “Much” as shown with snipped-to-size Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Be sure to come back often to get inspired by all of color! ⁠

Have a new color combo you want to share? Grab those in-colors and create your In-Color Challenge project. Then post on your Instagram account and tag us @stampinfancyfriday or use #stampinfancyfriday so we can share in our stories. ⁠

You can find Stampin’ Fancy Friday on these Social Media Channels!

 

In Color Challenge - Stampin' Fancy Friday

Soft Succulent is my favorite new In-Color, with Pale Papaya a really close 2nd. I have used them the most since their release. My color combo is Soft Suede, Pale Papaya, and Soft Succulent.⁠

Created with the Art In Bloom Bundle (I love the NEW Hybrid Embossing Folder), Blending Brushes, and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends.⁠

Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Very Vanilla to the card base with Stampin’ Seal.

Use Blending Brushes to add Sof Sude and Soft Succulent Classic Ink to a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Shimmery White Cardstock

Zip through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine tucked inside the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. 

Use a Water Painter to splatter water onto the embossed piece. Let sit for 30 seconds.  Dab dry with a paper towel. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Zip another piece of Shimmery White Cardstock through a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine tucked inside the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder, only this time, add the coordinating Bloom dies.  NEW!  The Hybrid Embossing Folders are made to hold the coordinating dies so that you can crop and emboss all in one run through your machine!

Use Stampin’ Write Markers to add color to the flower centers (Soft Suede) and lines (Pale Papaya).  Use a Sponge Dauber to add Soft Suede to the edges of the flowers.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

ART IN BLOOM PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET
Build your own flower garden with the Art in Bloom Stamp Set. Stamp the delicate floral images on card fronts to create your own handmade cards. Stamp the line art images first, then stamp with the solid washed images to quickly add a watercolored look. Add one of the all-occasion sentiments included in this set or another one of your choice; the images in this set will work with many sentiments.

BLOOM DIES & HYBRID EMBOSSING FOLDER
One product, many uses. Use just the dies to cut images. Or use just the embossing folder to emboss cardstock. Or use them together to cut AND emboss at the same time! The delicate floral imagery looks beautiful on so many projects—handmade cards, scrapbook pages, and more. Try embossing a card front, then adding die-cut flowers in a different color for effortless coordination. 1 embossing folder, 9 dies.

Sweet Strawberry Bundle from Stampin' Up! Thank You Card by Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot!

I am so excited that the Sweet Strawberry Bundle is finally back in stock. YAY!

I wanted to show you my tip for using the Stamparatus and a Post-It Note to create a template to quickly crop all images with the coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.

NOTE: This process can be used with all builder punches.  

Stampin' Up! 2021-2023 In Colors - Stesha Bloodhart - Stampin' Hoot!
  1.  Use the builder punch to crop a Post-It Note. 
  2. Place the Post It Note on a piece of Small Grid Paper on the plate of the Stamparatus. 
  3. Place the first stamp within the cropped area, getting as close to the center of the area as possible. 
  4. Grab the stamp with the Stamparatus Plate.  
  5. Repeat for all stamps needed for the coordinating punch. 
  6. Double-check placement by taking the Post It Note and laying it over the stamps on the Stamparatus Plate (photo on the left). 
  7. Stamp onto the grid paper and lay the Post It Note over the top, confirming proper placement (photo on right). 
  8. Proceed with stamping and quickly cropping the images for your project. 
Thank You card using the Sweet Strawberry Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!
