Take a look at the large photo above. In the lower left corner is a glimpse of the new Stamp Pad design.
The new pad opens like a compact but still allows the lid to slide under the pad for ease of use. This will be so much easier to use.

The bundles will be available for purchase on May1, 2018. Those of you attending my workshop on the 27th will be able to get a look at this bundle in person. We will also make a card or two with the beautiful products from this suite.

Stampin' Up! On Stage 2018 Las Vegas Highlights!


This is a Make-and-Take that we made at On Stage Las Vegas. The products used in this card come from a new bundle coming in June called Rooted in Nature. It has some new trees and leaves that will take you from Spring all the way to Winter. I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of this Suite. I did order it all.

Another announcement made at #OnStage2018 was a COLOR REVAMP!  I am so excited for this change, I feel it was needed and I cannot wait to have the new colors in my collection to play with!  Here is a look at the new colors and families:

NEW COLORS

really love the Soft Sea Foam, Merry Merlot and Gray Granite, but I love all the new colors that are going to be part of the Stampin’ Up! Color Families!

IN COLORS
The In Colors on the left are new. The In Colors on the right are the current In Colors.

Here is a look at the new Color Families.


And when we bring in the new, we have to say goodbye to some of the old.  So, here is a list of the colors that are retiring.  I know I may have to make some changes, but that is ok because I LOVE change.  It keeps things fresh and exciting.

On May 31, 2018, thirteen colors are retiring.

Always Artichoke
Chocolate Chip
Elegant Eggplant
Island Indigo
Marina Mist
Perfect Plum
Pink Pirouette
Rose Red
Soft Sky
Tangerine Tango
Tempting Turquoise
Wild Wasabi
Wisteria Wonder


Speaking of saying good bye. It's Last Call for some items in the Occasions Catalog as well as the Annual Catalog. Just click on the Graphic above to be taken to the Retirement List.

Global Stamping Friends - Bloghop 20: That little bit extra...






Welcome to the GSF Blog Hop #20: That Little Bit Extra... Our Explanation for that? That would be anything beyond Stamps, Ink & Paper.

I had some bits left over from my last play with the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set so I decided to do another card with that set in mind. I used a card front I had made for my general swaps last year as inspiration.


Once again I used Bermuda Bay Cardstock for my Base and Pool Party Cardstock for the Card Front. Then came a Whisper White Fishtail Banner that had need of some embossing so I chose the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I tucked half of a Silver Metallic Foil Doily behind the Banner. Then I took a piece of the Petal Passion DSP and ran it through the Big Shot with the largest Square Stitched Shapes Framelits Die. Then cut another one in Whisper White and cut a Square from the center. Next I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White and cut a small Fishtail banner. I created a cluster to use on the left side and tucked the small fishtail banner in behind the cluster, I topped this off with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored with a Black Sharpie pen.
I hope you like it.

Now it's time to visit Anita Wilfladt's a blog and see that little bit extra she has added to her project today. Just click on the blue arrow.

Happy Graduation! A Class Project



Good Morning,

Before I start packing this morning I wanted to share this graduation card we made in my workshop this weekend. It was a lot of fun. I have a great group of ladies who are ready and willing to try new things and we laughed, learned and played the day away.
Stamped on the inside.

 I took inspiration for this card from a couple of Graduation Cards on Pinterest. The location of the Happy Graduation Label on the numbers came from a card made by Stesha Bloodhart, and the way too cute Cap from a YouTube video (sorry I forget the name for this one).

I knew that I wanted to use my new Stamperatus to demonstrate what a great tool it is and to show them how easy it is to use. The Amazing Congratulations stamp set definitely showed them just how valuable a tool it can be.

Yes, I did make the little Tassel from our Silver Metallic Thread. The school colors were Black, Silver and Maroon. When I finished all of the card elements I realized I needed another touch of silver. Embossing the stars with Stampin' Silver Emboss powder did the trick. I left it looking just a little grungy as this card was designed for a young man graduating from high school.

I am headed for Vegas at the end of this week to attend Stampin' Ups OnStage Event. I will be gone for a little over 2 weeks as I am combining a trip to one of our families home in Mexico as well. When I come back I can begin sharing some of the new products coming in June.
I am So Excited about that!!


There is only 6 days left to take advantage of Sale-A-Bration!

March 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Birthdays




Welcome to the March 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along. This month’s theme is BirthdaysI can’t wait to show you my project!


The Perennial Birthday Stamp Set is my second favorite set from the Occasions Catalog. I love flowers of just  about any kind. I stamped all of the images in Momento's Tuxedo Black and fussy cut a bunch of them out. I just started putting them together in different configurations until I got one that I liked. I covered it all up with some Glad Press & Seal. That will keep it all together until I start my assembly. 




My Card Base is Bermuda Bay - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
The Card Front is Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4",  embossed with the Petal Burst TIEF.
The Card Front Mat is Pool Party - 2 3/4" x 3 5/8", stamped with Pool Party Ink (using the largest floral image).
The Sentiment Strip is Bermuda Bay - 1 1/4" x 4 1/4", Stamp the sentiment with Tuxedo Black. Tie some Bermuda Bay 1/8" Shimmer Ribbon (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) around this piece.
I colored the flowers with Stampin' Blends, Pool party light & dark and Bermuda Bay light & dark.
The Inside Layer is Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4". Stamp the sentiment with Tuxedo Black. Stamp the largest floral image with Pool party ink, stamping off once.
Assemble the card with your preferred adhesives.
I popped up the smallest flowers with Mini Dimensionals.

If you would like to earn this beautiful pack of Shimmer Ribbon all you have to do is make a $50.00 purchase in my online store and it can be yours FREE.

Now it is time to hop on over to the talented Shannon Cole's blog to see what inspiration she is sharing with us today. Just click on the arrow. Thank You for stopping by!
