Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Pastels

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and halfway through the month already. Days are just flying by.

Today I have another card that we made at our Inkin’ Krew team meeting on Sunday. This card used the daisy type flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Bundle. Here’s my card for today.

This card was designed by another one of my talented team members Tara Beth. Another gorgeous design. For this one we got to play with the new Soft Pastels Assortment on page 126 of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

I started by cutting a panel of the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper using the largest die from the Scalloped Contour Dies and adhering it to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of So Saffron cardstock using the 3rd largest die from the Scalloped Contour Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the die. I adhered the scalloped die to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set 4 times in Basic Gray Ink. I cut the images out using the Scalloped Contour Dies. I colored each of the flowers using a different color from the Soft Pastels Assortment and I blended them using my Blending Brushes. I adhered 2 of the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and 1 using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few gems Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

On the inside I cut a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP and Night of Navy cardstock using the scallop edge die from the Scalloped Contour Dies. I adhered the 2 together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the scalloped edge to a panel of Basic White cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the 4th flower to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set 3 times on the envelope front in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card we made at our team meeting. It was fun playing with the Soft Pastels Assortment, it was a different way to color images. Stampin’ Up! has so many options for coloring, pick your favorite and get started. Happy Stamping!!

Changes To The Upcoming July-December Mini Catalog And Second Sale-a-bration


Stampin’ Up! has shared the following update with us related to the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog and second Sale-a-bration this year.  With the global shipping delays, they will be moving the start dates for those two publications back by one month.  Here are the details from Stampin’ Up!:

We’ve recently been made aware that, due to the current global shipping crisis tied to the COVID pandemic, we are not likely to receive the majority of product inventory for the upcoming July–December 2021 Mini Catalog or July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration in time for the catalog launches. After careful consideration we have decided to push the launches of both publications back by one month to allow time for inventory to be received.
 
Change Details

  • The July–December 2021 Mini Catalog will in effect become the August–December 2021 Mini Catalog (though the title of the publication will not change).
    • Demonstrator Preorder: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Sales Period: August 3, 2021– January 3, 2022
  • July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration will in effect become August–September 2021 Sale-A-Bration.
    • Demonstrator Pre-earn: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Earning Period: August 3, 2021 – September 30, 2021

I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! made the decision to move the catalog timing back by a month in order to minimize those frustrating backorders and unavailable items!  Let me know if you have questions about this.  Can’t wait to see the upcoming Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs this summer!  And as always, I’ll get those catalogs mailed out to you just as quickly as I can once I get them in early July!

Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Blending

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I hope you are all having a productive one.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting on Sunday. We made 3 cards all using the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Bundle. Here’s the first card we made.

This card was designed and demonstrated by Linda, one of my team members. Isn’t it gorgeous.

We started by adhering a panel of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock we used our Blending Brushes and added Highland Heather Ink on the top, Blushing Bride Ink in the middle and Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom. We stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on top of the blended colors and immediately sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the image out using the middle scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I cut another one of the same scalloped rectangles out of a panel of Highland Heather cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the top of the Highland Heather rectangle using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel just under the artwork on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front. I tied a double bow using the White Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the stem of the flower with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, stamped off once, on either side of the sentiment . I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card that Linda designed and will give it a try. If you are interested in joining us at our next team meeting, I’d love to have you on my team. We have an awesome team and it’s a great group of people. Contact me at creativestampingdesigns@gamil.com and I’d be happy to talk to you more about joining. There’s no obligation to sell, blog or have workshops. Join as a hobby demonstrator just to enjoy the 20% discount. The new mini catalog will be coming out soon, you’d get to see the catalog early and order early. Contact me for more information. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Freesia Color and Contour

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you are all making the best of it and having some fun.

Today’s card uses some of the 2021-2023 In-Colors. I’m really loving these new colors this year. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Bundle for my card along with the beautiful 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper.

I played along with Festive Friday Challenge #084. I have Green, Die Cuts & Flowers.

I started by stamping the outline flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower fill image in Fresh Freesia Ink over the outline image. I cut the flower out using the Scalloped Contours Dies. I cut the middle scallop frame from Scalloped Contours Dies from the Basic White panel. Using my Blending Brushes, I added some Soft Succulent Ink on the scalloped frame. I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the frame. I adhered the flower to the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I adhered the Vellum panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just behind where I was putting the frame. I adhered the matted card front to a Fresh Freesia card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a length of Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink to the side of the sentiment. I stamped the flower fill color in Fresh Freesia Ink over the outline image. I adhered a strip of the 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal only on the sides. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outline flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower fill image in Fresh Freesia Ink. I adhered a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Triple Time

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? With warmer weather coming hopefully everyone will start to be doing some fun things on the weekends.

I have a triple time card for you today using another new set and the new In-Colors from the new 2021-2020 Annual Catalog. I’ve been using the dies a lot that go with this bundle, now I thought I’d use the stamp set. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set for my triple time stamp card. I used 4 of the 5 new 2021-2023 In-Colors for my stamping today.

I started by adhering the 3 Basic White panels together with the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal so that i could easily take them apart after stamping on them.

I first stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the smallest panel. I stamped the outline flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Inks randomly around the panels. I then stamped the outline leaf image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the flowers. I took the panels apart and adhered the smallest and middle panels to Soft Succulent mats using Stampin’ Seal. I then adhered the matted panels together, making sure to match up the stamped images, using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon around the stamped and matted panels and tied a small bow. I adhered the layers to a Soft Succulent card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the outlined flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set on the panel in Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Inks and the leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I randomly stamped the outlined flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Ink on the envelope front and flap. I stamped the leaf image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the flower images.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
