We’ve been ready and waiting for Stampin’ Up! to release their new and improved alcohol-based markers, and they are finally here! Stampin’ Blends are available in light and dark pairs, single markers, or as a whole set!
I’ve been playing around with these for a little while, and today I want to share with you a video tutorial for a quick birthday card using these new, fabulous coloring tool:
You’ve Got Style has been a very popular set in the recent Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and today’s project features these funny old ladies! Watch the video below to learn how to put together this quick and fun birthday card for someone who’d appreciate a laugh:
I chose Melon Mambo as my accent colour for the black and white base, but of course, you can choose any colour you think your friend would love.
Take a few minutes to see how quick this one is to finish and how to colour her up in no time:
I hope you are enjoying the long weekend! Today’s share is a long one, but with lots of resources and goodies! Please have a read all the way to the end. All the card samples are using the new Colorful Seasons Bundle.
I want to introduce you to the five new Stampin’ Up! colours:
Please meet Fresh Fig:
From top to bottom, the colours used here are Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, and Fresh Fig. The flowers are in Fresh Fig as well. Fresh Fig is a very rich, dark wine sort of colour.
Please meet Tranquil Tide:
From top to bottom, the colours used here are Pool Party, Island Indigo, Tranquil Tide, and Always Artichoke. As demonstrated in the video below, Tranquil Tide is very much an “in between” colour. It will definitely change character depending on which colours you use it with!
Please meet Berry Burst:
From top to bottom we have Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Rich Razzleberry, and Fresh Fig. The chair is also in Berry Burst. This colour is a purple-pink with a good amount of vibrancy.
Please meet Lemon Lime Twist:
I predict this will be the most popular colour of the five! Think fresh granny smith apples here. From top to bottom, I have used Lemon LIme Twist, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, and Always Artichoke. The leaf is also out of Lemon Lime Twist.
Please meet Powder Pink:
Colours from top to bottom are Pink Pirouette, Powder Pink, Blushing Bride, and Rose Red. Powder Pink is soft purpley-pink, perfect for subtle projects or perhaps baby cards.
Happy first day of June and the first day of our new Annual Catalogue! I had a great deal of fun putting through orders (mostly for myself!) this morning. There is nothing quite inspiring like a few new toys!
Please also note the gorgeous, fantastic, versatile Wood Textures papers used here! How I love these! Wonderful with flowers, masculine, teens, baby — just anything at all! I encourage all of you to put these beauties on your first order!
The front panel of the card features a window, which I encourage you to watch the video below to see just how I did that to create the matted frame. The second layer of the card showcases a second wood print with a bit of stamping.
The Happy Birthday Die makes for a more interesting window here, but also consider you can cut the two words apart and use them separately for even more versatility!
Please take a few moments to watch my video and see how to make a card like this:
Thanks so much for stopping by – I appreciate each and every one of you! I hope you are enjoying the new catalogue and I look forward to another Stampin’ Up! year of inspiration, laughs and fun! Please join us for a class!
