Stampin’ Blends Available November 1st!

Stampin’ Up! just announced that the fabulous alcohol-based Stampin’ Blends markers will be available to everyone starting November 1st!! I’m super excited!! There are currently 12 color pairs to choose from, 2 skin tone single markers, and a Color Lifter. If you plan to purchase any or all of them, remember to also get the Memento Tuxedo Black pad for stamping the images you’ll be coloring in so you won’t get “bleeding” during the coloring processes.

Yesterday I made these note cards with the Blends to send with prizes to a few in my Stampers With ART group.

Then I quickly hopped on Facebook to broadcast and record a how-to video showing how simple coloring with Blends can be. Be sure to watch this video (below) for basic tips and techniques.

 

After watching this, I hope you gained some basic knowledge to feel confident enough to try these new markers out.

Do you feel like making these cards that I shared? Here are the measurements you’ll need.

  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3″ x 4-1/2″ and 7″ x 5″ folded in half at 3-1/2″ for the card base (or a Whisper White Note Card)
  • Colored Cardstock: 3-1/8″ x 4-5/8″

And here are a few more photos – close-ups of each card.

Memories & More For Greeting Cards

Yesterday I shared a blue & white card that incorporated using pieces from the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack. When one hears the words “Memories & More” they more than likely think of scrapbooking first. But that is why Stampin’ Up! added the word “more” on the end. The supplies in these card packs are meant to be used for all kinds of paper crafting projects and work super well for card layers and embellishments. Here is a glance at the four Memories & More Card Packs we have in our 2017-18 Annual Catalog.

(There is also a 5th M&M Card Pack not pictured above in the 2017 Holiday catalog.) These packs include double-sided printed cards. But you’ll also find stickers, printed acetate overlays, and even have die-cut embellishments in these packs.

As with memory keeping (when paired with our pocket photo pages) card making can be super quick and easy with the supplies in these packs. Here are four cards I made using the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack.

The base cardstock piece for each card is 11″ x 4-1/4″ folded in half at 5-1/2″. On three of the cards I stamped images from the Colorful Seasons stamp set using VersaMark ink. VersaMark is a clear ink that when stamped onto colored cardstock takes on and deepens the color. It gives the appearance that the cardstock was stamped with coordinating ink.

After stamping the base cardstock pieces, I layered on one or two cards from the pack and added some Glitter Enamel Dots. (On the white one, I used stickers from the pack to add the sentiment.)

I Have Cats on the Brain Lately

We have a couple cats that have been wandering around our neighborhood lately. One of them has been a mystery cat for quite some time. We couldn’t figure out who owned her, so she was given the name Princess by the kids in our neighborhood. A new family just moved in at the end of the block and decided to take her in. They brought her to the vet to made sure she was healthy and get her shots. The child living there is super happy, renamed her Hermione, and all is well. (We think the previous owner of their house left this cat since Hermione had a lot of familiarity with their house.)

She is an outdoor cat, so sometimes the cat will be gone for days at a time. But at least we know that she has a home now.

The other one belongs to a family that we have been friends with and know well. (Their son, Carter is really good friends with my boys.) The cat’s name is Ruckus, and he hangs out here a LOT since Carter spends a lot of time playing here. We often find Ruckus outside our door in the morning and at night…

…and even way up on top of our open garage door during the day. Last night we let him in because it was raining and he was meowing at our door. Carter’s mom came to get him soon after, but he devoured up a can of tuna while he was here. (I think I may need to purchase some cat food to have on hand since Ruckus may take advantage of us again on a future rainy night now that he knows we have weak hearts. LOL

I think we need a pet. hahaha!

 

So because we’ve had cats on the brain a lot lately, I thought I’d share a couple cards I made recently with the popular Cat Punch from the 2017 Holiday Catalog. This first is the first one.

Snowy white cat card made with the Cat Punch, Winter Wonder Embossing Folder, Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack...#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Marina Mist Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored in half at 5-1/2″…a strip that is 1″ tall for stamping and punching the sentiment piece
  • Dapper Denim Cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: scrap for punching cat
  • Silver 1/8″ Ribbon: ~13-14″

Directions:

  • Emboss the snowflake on the Dapper Denim cardstock.
  • Punch the cat from the Whisper White cardstock scrap.
  • Stamp the cat face image on the cat using Basic Gray ink. Color in the eyes with the Marina Mist marker. Then make a collar by sticking on a rhinestone and drawing thin lines with the Dapper Denim marker.

  • Attach the snowflake patterned card to the bottom of the Dapper Denim piece. Tie the silver ribbon around this and tie in a knot.
  • Add the sentiment piece with Dimensionals. Trim off the excess, then attach this whole layer to the Marina Mist card base.
  • Attach the “Let it Snow” card to the inside.

Product List for the White Winter Cat Card:

 

This Cat Punch can be bundled with the Spooky Cat stamp set in the 2017 Holiday Catalog. So many paper crafters are making Halloween cards and projects with it. In fact if you get your hands on the Spooky Night Designer Paper, you can punch out a bunch of pre-printed black and orange cards.

So…my other card is for those of you looking for a fun and striking Halloween card.

Full Moon & cat card made with the Cat Punch, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Bunch of Banners Framelits & Spooky Cat stamp set...#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements:

  • Basic Gray Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Smoky Slate Cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (2 pieces)…and scraps for die-cutting and punching two banners
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Crushed Curry Cardstock: scrap for die-cutting the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits

  • Stamp the lines image diagonally with Smoky Slate ink onto the ends of one of the die-cut banners.
  • Trim the ends from the other die-cut banner and stamp “Happy Halloween” with Basic Black ink in the center. Notice mine is curved a bit? Before inking be sure to curve your stamp on the clear block so it matches the curve of the banner.
  • After layering all the base pieces together, add the moon and the longest gray banner so that they look balanced on the front of the card.
  • Attach the Year of Cheer Sentiments using Glue Dots. Then add the second shorter banner layer – the stamped one with a couple Dimensionals.

The boys have been longing for a pet for some time now. Not sure if it’s going to happen, but for now we are enjoying that Ruckus and Hermione come around to visit.
