New Products – OnStage Make-n-Take Cards

I was scrolling through my photos and realized yesterday that I forgot to share the fabulous make-n-takes we got to make at OnStage. Here are the 4 cards I put together at OnStage Local in Hartford, CT on the April 7th.

I typically change the intended cards/projects a bit when I put mine together which is what I did again this time. Here is my version of what we were to make with the Detailed With Love stamp set and the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.

Make-n-Takes from the Stampin’ Up! OnStage April 2018, Hartford CT....#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

This one I altered slightly, too. This card features the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper, the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, and the Love What You Do Stamp Set.

We were able to play with so many wonderful products. But this one I saved to finish at home because I wanted to use extra Blends Markers to complete it. You are going to love all the new papers coming including this Graceful Glass Designer Vellum which coordinates with the Painted Glass Stamp Set (also used on the card).

This last one we made with the Nature’s Poem Designer Paper and what will probably be my very favorite stamp set, Rooted In Nature. I didn’t change the the make-n-take design at all for this card.

The kids are home today because Mother Nature dumped a couple feet of snow on us over the entire weekend, and the school district decided that there was just too much of it. The snow started falling Saturday morning and didn’t stop until early this morning…almost 48 hours of it. I took this photo of my husband in our driveway early Sunday morning when it was a foot high. This was only about half of what we got!

Mid-April 2018 and it feels like mid-January....#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

He had gone out for groceries (bless his heart) at the start of the storm on Saturday. We are pretty thankful to have food, shelter… and a snowblower! And the boys are loving that they have one less day of school this week.

OnStage Goodies, More Displays & Extra Photos

Would you like to see the April 2018 OnStage gifts I got from fellow demonstrators?! Two demonstrators gave me gifts before I left – my upline, Susan Campfield and a gal in my Stampers With ART group (who also happens to be one of my assistants!), Vicki Spicer.

This gift is from Susan. She took one of our beautiful folders (a new supply item for demonstrators) and converted it into a mini double folder/booklet by trimming off the top and putting a couple extra creases in it. The retiring Night of Navy Crinkled Seam Binding is a beautiful touch for the closure. Then she made a mini apron box to hold Tic Tac mints with the Apron Builder framelits and floral stamp images from the retiring Lovely Friends stamp set.

Inside were all these goodies! (And check out the back side of the apron box. Adorable!)

This is a photo of the group I sat with at the CentreStage event, a special event for leader demonstrators. We are spoiled at this event! And this time was no exception. We received a tall pretty navy mug, a “coupon” for a free stamp set of our choice, the new In Color Markers, one of the new stamp pad, a sampler of ALL the cardstock (LOVE this!), the new catalog early (LOVE this, too!), a festive noise maker, and a fabulous dinner. My tablemates were wonderful company, too…pictured are Rose Ward, Deb Waterman, Kim Quigley, Gail Murray and me (dressed to the nines in my 80’s-themed party attire).

I got a few more photos with other “East coast” friends that evening. Janet Wakeland was surprised to see that I wasn’t in Milwaukee this time. Look at her fun outfit!

Tami White (who took the photo since she is much better than me at taking selfies!) was celebrated that evening for her 2 Million in career sales. What a SUPER incredible accomplishment!

The last set of projects shown above were created by my friend Debbie Henderson who along with Jason Loucks (sandwiched between Debbie and I in this photo below) help me to run the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club consisting currently of over 16,300 members. These two ROCK! It was so fun to all be at the same OnStage location!

So now that I’ve shared all my photos and news from OnStage (today, and Monday and Tuesday) I’m ready to share more of my stamping projects that I’ve been creating lately. Tomorrow I’ll be in a unique blog hop that makes me giddy. See you then?!

Introducing the 2018 Color Revamp

The 2018 Color Revamp!…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The new 2018-19 Annual Catalog was unveiled to demos this weekend at OnStage. As always it’s filled with SO many wonderful new products! But this year’s catalog announced an EXTRA exciting new change…a Color Revamp!

Click here to learn more about the new 2018 Color Revamp…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Since the Stampin’ Up! ink pads were being redesigned & improved upon, this was a great time to revamp our colors, bring out some fresh, trendy hues and reorganize our color collections. These fun shades are bound to inspire even MORE creativity!


DEPARTING COLORS

Because we brought in new colors, we had to get rid of a few. So if you have a close relationship with any of these, be sure to stock up on any coordinating retiring products you may need.

Many of you already knew of the retiring 2016-2018 In Colors:

COLORS TO KICK OFF THE 2018-19 ANNUAL CATALOG

There are 18 colors leaving with this Color Revamp. But there are 21 colors being added, because Stampin’ Up! is taking 3 hues (Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Whisper White) and pulling them aside from the Neutrals to put into their own “Basics” group. In addition there are some shifts to maintain balance and variety in our updated collections. Here are how the colors will now be organized.

NEW INK PADS

Because the mold for the ink pad cases was about to expire, Stampin’ Up! took this opportunity to make improvements to the case design, the labels and the ink formula itself. So when you invest in the new colors, you are getting all the improvements at once.

Here are a few comparison photos.

Comparing the older and the newer 2018 Stampin’ Up! ink pads…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Comparing the older and the newer 2018 Stampin’ Up! ink pads…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

What’s better about our new case?

  • It’s less confusing to open. Opening the new ink pad case is now more simple and intuitive—just insert your thumb in the lip at the front of the case and lift it to open.
  • It has a tighter fit between the lid and the base. With the new design, the lid doesn’t accidentally become disconnected, which was a common problem with the old case style. With use, the lid will be easier to slide open and close.
  • It is stackable. The ability to stack the cases makes them easier to store and transport. We designed a nub in each bottom corner that fits nicely into the dimple on the top of another case. Tip: Removing the label stickers from the bottom of the case (after applying the needed labels to the case) also makes the ink pads stack a little better.
  • It includes improved labels and stickers. Here are a few of the ways we’ve done that:
    • The top label now has a cleaner, bolder design and a larger color swatch, making it easier to see the ink’s color.
    • The stickers include a new In Color icon.
    • We’ve continued to provide color stickers that can be placed on the end of each case to easily identify the ink’s color at a glance.
    • We’re introducing a new color sticker you can place on the inside of the case, so you can easily distinguish the ink’s color when the case is open.

Comparing the older and the newer 2018 Stampin’ Up! ink pads…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

What’s better about the ink?

We noticed that the old ink would sometimes bubble, especially on new pads and with lighter colors. When this happened, the ink wasn’t as even and smooth when stamped as we’d like to see it. The improved ink formula includes a de-foaming agent and will reduce ink bubbles, help you get a smooth coating of ink on the stamp, and help lay down the ink better.

Beginning with the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog, all ink refills will have the improved ink formula. Also, if you recently received an ink refill and it has the new branding label, it contains the improved ink formula.

And guess what?! You can use an old ink refill on a new ink pad or a new ink refill on an old ink pad – with the exception of the Basic Gray Archival and Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ inks. Archival and Classic inks should not be mixed. All other Classic Stampin’ inks will work fine.

Archival ink will no longer be part of our ink offering. Basic Gray will now be part of the Classic Stampin’ ink family. Please note that you cannot use an archival ink refill on the new Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad, as this will ruin the new ink pad. Only use Classic Stampin’ ink refills on Classic Stampin’ pads. Your best options for black ink pads are the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad, to use with Blends and general black stamping needs, and the Jet Black StāzOn Pad, to use for watercolor and nonporous surface stamping. Both will be part of our ink offering.

 

 

I hope you found this information helpful. Let me know if you have questions.

Retiring Products & OnStage April 2018 News!

It’s just so much fun being a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator!!

What a fantastic weekend it was at the April 2018 OnStage event. I attended the one located in Hartford, Connecticut. And it was glorious! There is so much to tell you that I can’t possibly put it all into one post. But as of 1:00 PM Mountain Time the new products we received and saw, the news on the changing colors and updated ink pads, the photos of the displays and the demonstrations, the gifts we got, and the image of the catalog (cover only at this time) can now officially be shared!


But first you need to also know that also as of 1:00 PM Mountain Time today, we can share with you the products that are now retiring from the current catalogs: the 2017-18 Annual Catalog and the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

Click here for the list of 2018 Retiring Stampin’ Up!® Products…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

CLICK HERE for more detailed information, to access the lists and links, for dates about transitioning into the new catalog, AND to find out how you can get your hands on the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog.
Be sure to take a good look at the retiring products list so that you don’t miss out on getting items that you have wanted. Some things sell out quickly!


 

Here is a photo of me with those in my team who attended in Hartford (Lynda Patsolas, Mary Spelbrink, Pam Vogrin and Pauline Poindexter) with the new 2018-19 Catalog! We are excited. Can you tell!? And isn’t this catalog cover a fun one?

It’s a colorful and vibrant cover, because the biggest change this coming year is the Color Revamp! Five years ago Stampin’ Up! did a Color Refresh. But this is even bigger because not only are there some fun color changes within the families (new colors and returning colors), but the families have changed a bit to add 3 more colors…

AND the ink pads and ink quality have been updated. (I’ll share more about all this in my color comparison post tomorrow.)

Most product demonstrations and presentations were live at each OnStage location, but some were pre-recorded. We didn’t have cofounder, Shelli Gardner or her daughter, Sara Douglass, the CEO of Stampin’ Up! at our location, but we were able to watch them demonstrate together during one of the recorded videos.

And as always, they were a hoot to watch and kept us in stitches.

Sweet Soirée Gable Box of Chocolates

When is the best time to share a box of chocolates? Anytime! Especially when it’s in this pretty packaging. 🙂

This was one of the fun make-n-takes we made on the Silver Elite Retreat this past weekend.

Measurements:

  • Whisper White cardstock: scrap for punching 2″ Circle
  • Fresh Florals designer paper (Berry Burst): a 1″ x 3″ piece for each Hershey’s Nugget (we put 6 in each box)
  • Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon: about 20″
  • Silver Baker’s Twine: about 14″

Products:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions/Tips:

  • When the box is still flat, slip the floral Petal Pair embossing folder into the box area you want to emboss. Positioning the folder with the Sizzix logo out will give you a “debossed” look (like you see in this first box). Positioning the folder with the Sizzix logo in will give you an embossed look (like you see in the second box further down).
  • After running the box through the Big Shot, assemble the bottom and add a little Shreddie inside.
  • Wrap each nugget with a 3″ x 1″ strip of designer paper and secure with Tear & Tape adhesive. Add to the box, and close it up.
  • Tie on the Berry Burst ribbon.
  • Punch out the 2″ Whisper White circle. Punch an 1/8″ hole at the edge to create the base of the tag. Add the tag to the box with the twine.

  • Then either leave the floral Sweet Soirée vellum embellishment as is adding it to the tag with a Glue Dot and a Glitter Enamel Dot in the flower center to cover the Glue Dot. OR…Color the back side of the floral Sweet Soirée vellum embellishment first as shown below using Blends Markers.

You may have to make two, though. That way you can keep one for yourself. (wink wink)

Silver Elite Stars’ Retreat 2018

What a fabulous weekend we had!

Cheryl Lee and I went up to my parents’ lake place in Northern Minnesota for a fun get-away so I could spoil her and we could stamp and celebrate her accomplishments and successes she’s had in her Stampin’ Up! business.

These first photos show the “pillow gifts” I gave her when we first arrived. And these photos are followed by a few glimpses of the fun moments we had while there. (Thanks Mom & Dad for opening up your home and being such fabulous hosts!)

Cheryl received a personalized make-up bag. Notice I added a cute tassel from the Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit?

We arrived at my parents’ place (the cabin) at about 3:15 in the afternoon. They really did a great job at making us feel like we were at a Bed & Breakfast. There were cute decorations and little touches like this here and there.

We took breaks for meals and for a walk in the woods. (I had to go down our big hill on the sled, too!) But otherwise we just stamped and stamped and stamped the whole day even right to bedtime.

Actually the snow (though super pretty) was falling fast and was about 8″ high when we left around 11:30 AM. My dad shoveled a path so we could pack the van, and he even led us out to the main road by making tire tracks with his vehicle for us to follow.
