Hi Crafty Friends!
Are you ready for a sneak peek of goodies from the new catalog? You are? Good! I have one for you! There is so much to be excited about in this new catalog since we have a new color revamp, new in-colors and of course lots of new stamp sets and other goodies! So check out my first creation using some of the new In-Colors and a new Stamp set that will be available to you as of June 1st!
I used three new In-Colors to make this card. They are: Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch. They are some perfect colors for summer! The stamp set I used is called Big Wishes and it has this and three other fun stamps that will be great for the birthdays you have coming up. The pretty DSP I used is the new In-Color DSP. They now offer this in the 6×6 size so it is a bit easier to store! The fun fold I make allows the card to sit upright so it could be displayed on a desk. It opens in the back and there is room to write on the card there. To make this fold I started with a half sheet of cardstock and scored it in landscape position at 1-1/2”, 2-3/4”, 5-3/4” and
7” I want to be sure and mention I got this measurements and some inspiration for this card from Linda Heller with Stamping School. Check out her webpage if you haven’t already! To make the two-toned appearance on this stamp set I used one of the most exciting new products, The Stamparatus! This is a super awesome stamping tool that helps you get your images stamped perfectly. Using this tool I was able to re-stamp the image multiple times to ensure my colors were nice and bright. I also was able to leave the stamp in place and add the two colors separately. You can’t even tell I did which really makes this tool awesome! To really see how the Stamparatus works check out this video for an introduction:
You can see all 4 of the videos in this series if you check out the Stampin’ Up! you tube channel and search for Stamparatus.
I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek of the new catalog items. It is only a week away and you will be able to shop for all the goodies in the catalog!
