Spiral Flower Die

Spiral flower die I played with some fun new things from the new Occasions catalog! First, I lOVE this new DSP paper stack called Fresh Prints. I love these patterns and colors, and this is my favorite from the pack, I think (today anyway)! This is the first flower I have made with the new Spiral Flower Die. These are so easy to make! Just run them through the Big Shot and then roll them into a flower. So much fun! I unmounted the wheel from the Clearance Rack and that gave me a bunch of cool Valentine sentiments. Easy Peasy. Thanks for dropping by today!

Festive Flurry Thinlet

Festive Flurry I have always loved making flip cards, but the process in the past was fairly involved. Our new thinlet dies make them so quick and easy! I extended the card by using a piece of card stock that was 8 1/2" and allowed the end to sit over the back edge of the die rather than under it where it could be cut. Doing this makes a little line on your card that is the perfect place to fold it so that now you have a gatefold card with a flip mechanism as well. Festive Flurry This picture shows the gatefold opening. The picture below shows the surprise greeting on the flip side and the message on the gatefold. I like this added  length to the card because there is still plenty of room to include a hand written message. Thinlet flip card Thanks for stopping by!

New Thinlet “Flip Card” Dies!

I had a fabulous time at StampFest and then Convention the following week. Such a good time in fact that it has taken me a couple of weeks to catch up and recuperate! There is so much Stampin' News to share with you, I don't know where to start, but here goes. The Holiday Catalog went live today! (Yesterday, really but my blog servers were down for hours) There are some fabulous products in there. My favorites are the framelits that cut perfect liners for our envelopes, the This N That Christmas organizer, muslin gift bags and other gift packaging, lots of shine and shimmer, the banner kits (so much fun!), and so, so much more! Here is a link for you to see it for yourself. Stampin' Up announced some amazing new products at convention. The next two items are available now. The first are these fun new Thinlet dies that cut and score a flip fold card for you. I am so excited about these, because I have been asking for this exact kind of die and they come with several additional framelits for decorating the card. I'll just show you this video, the samples are gorgeous and so much fun! You HAVE to go see what people are making with our new Undefined Kit! This is a kit that allows you to carve a stamp of your own design. Get inspired here! Undefined Of course there is more. We have a wonderful tool coming that will allow you to quickly create your own envelopes in 60 different sizes and on August 9th several new attachments and blades that turn our already fab paper trimmer into a rotary trimmer as well! I think that's enough excitement for one day. I'll be back tomorrow with a card for you!

Introducing the New In Colors!

Crisp Cantaloupe I am so excited to share the new 2013/2014 In Colors! I LOVE every one of these colors, they are just so fresh and cheery! They are as delectable as their names suggest and they complete our upcoming Color Refresh perfectly. Stampin' Up did a fabulous job with this color update! The colors that I have labeled as Refresh are past In Colors that are making a comeback to freshen up color groupings. Of course, the pictures never do them justice. I think Crisp Cantaloupe is one of my favorites, it is brighter and deeper than this picture. It really looks like the flesh of a cantaloupe! It is lovely with Calypso Coral. Baked Brown Sugar Baked Brown Sugar is a rich caramel brown. It looks wonderful with all of the colors shown here and is much richer in person. Pistachio Pudding Pistachio Pudding is a lovely but subdued minty green. It has a hint of sage to it, so it will be very versatile. Love having this green alternative! Strawberry Slush Strawberry slush is a a yummy deep pink. It really does remind me of a strawberry slush. Not nearly as bright as Melon Mambo, but a lovely pop of color when paired with some of our Subtles. LOVE!!!! Coastal Cabana I did two comparisons for you with the new Coastal Cabana. This is a gorgeous light teal that just screams... come to the islands! I paired it here with current colors so that you would have a better idea of what it looks like in person. Coastal Cabana Here I compared it to some of the refreshed colors so that you can see what a wonderful new color palette we will have to work with. I adore these colors, they make me want to slip on some sandals and head to the beach! Available for purchase on May 31st or now if you sign up to be a demonstrator during the current preorder period. I guess that makes this a great time to mention that new demonstrators currently choose $155 worth of product for only $99 in their demonstrator kit (plus an additional $50 in free business supplies).
