A Color Stamp Off Challenge

Hello everyone.  It is time again for another Stamp Off Challenge.  This time we have a color challenge.  Here are the colors (which by the way are one of my favorite combinations):

I think this combination of colors is so bright and cheery.  Here is my card:

I used the stamp set called Colorful Seasons.  This is a great all around stamp set because it represents all the seasons.  There are snowflakes for winter, leaves for fall, flower for spring and a beach chair for summer.  It also has a set of matching Thinlits called Seasonal Layers.  It cuts out all the different snowflakes, leaves and flowers but my favorite part of this Bundle is the Adirondack Chair die.  It is just adorable (as you can see).

For the background I used one of the new Dynamic Folders. These folders  are amazing because they emboss a deeper, bolder pattern into the cardstock.   This one is called Ruffled.  It is supposed to look like ribbon but I thought it also looked liked waves.

Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made using these colors.  I know Jackie was not the fondest of this combination but I know she will make something awesome using them.

A Fun Fold Card

This is the second card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting last week.  It is a fun fold card using a new Bundle called Colorful Seasons.  The Bundle includes the stamp set also called Colorful Seasons and dies called Seasonal Layers.  If you buy them both in this Bundle you will save 10%.

This card is actually a tri-fold card so it opens three ways.

This Bundle is extremely popular with my customers because it is so much fun.  There are images for every season and it has the cutest Adirondack Chair in the die set.

A couple of week ago, all my kids were able to come home for a memorial service.  It was the first time Emory Jade came to visit.  She is already three months old.  Time really needs to slow down.  Her Daddy, Zachary, flew all the way from Alabama all by myself with her.  Emory’s mom was not able to come.  Zachary was so brave to do this alone.  Emory and he very well though.  Emory got to meet the rest of the family, which was awesome.  Just look at those cheeks!  They got lots of kisses during this time!

Today just happens to be Zachary’s 30th birthday.  I am so proud of him.  He is an awesome Dad and an awesome man.  Happy Birthday, Zachary.  I love you!

Colorful Seasons

Yesterday I wrote about the new dies in the 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! catalog and how they cut out the usual shapes of the matching stamps but they also have extra dies that cut out different things.  Here is another example of that.  The stamp set is called Colorful Seasons and the matching Thinlits are called Seasonal Layers.  You can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  In any case, the chair in my card above is one of the dies that is extra and it is adorable.

This set of stamps and dies are my favorite in the new catalog.  The stamp set covers all the seasons,  There are snowflakes for winter, leaves for fall, flowers for spring and a cute beach chair for summer.   The dies cut out all those stamps plus the Adirondack Chair.  I love it!

The Designer Series Paper I used on this card is called Color Theory.  It has Ombre designs on one side and two other design on the other side.  The colors are Berry Burst, Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Dapper Denim.

More Sneak Peeks

Here are a few more cards we made at the Stampin’ Up! Onstage Local in Toronto earlier this month.  All of these products will be found in the 2017 Annual Catalog that comes out June 1st.

This first card is made using the Birthday Memories suite.  This suite includes the stamp set called Birthday Delivery.  The Framelits are called Birthday Friends and the matching Designer Series Paper is called Birthday Memories.  There are also ribbons and embellishments included in this suite. The amazing thing about this suite is, not only do the Framelits cut out the stamps they also cut out the figures in the Designer Series Paper!  The fox and the banner he is carrying is actually from the paper and is not a stamp.  This is going to be so popular.  You are going to love it!

This next card uses products from the Delightful Daisy Suite.  This suite has a stamp set, a Punch, Designer Series Paper, ribbon and Faceted Gems.  The Gems comes in Clear and Gold and have a great sparkle to them.  The stamp set is called Daisy Delight.  The Punch is called Daisy Punch.

This last, but not least, card uses the Color Theory Suite.  The stamp set is called Colorful Seasons.  It has the cutest beach chair, leaves, flowers, snowflakes and a bunch of sentiments.  The matching Thinlits are called Seasonal Layers.  That set includes an Adirondack chair that is just adorable.  There is fun Designer Series Paper, ribbons and Glitter Enamel Dots.  This is my favorite suite we got to see at the event and from what I  heard around our table, was the favorite of everyone else.

You will be able to start ordering these products on June 1st.  You are going to love this catalog.  There is something for everyone.
