Stampin’ Up! Color ReVamp – New Colors

There was some confusion about what information we could share with everyone after the OnStage event earlier this month.  Well, good news, we can share the new color chart that shows the color families from the new catalog that starts in June.  Here it is:

Stampin' Up! color collections revamp 2018

In addition, we have the Basics which are Basic Black, Whisper White, and Very Vanilla.  And, 5 new In Colors.

I can’t wait to play and re-organize all my card stock and ink pads…I’m actually looking forward to all the fun of sorting and re-organizing everything.

Please email me at [email protected] if you need a copy of the June catalog mailed to you.  All my regular local peeps will get a copy at my Open House on June 2nd & June 3rd or when I see them at stamp club.

Happy Stampin’



Mother’s Day Card – Eclipse Technique

This eclipse technique has been around for a while, but seems to be very popular over the last few months.  I did a mother’s day card for my club using this technique with the Springtime Foils paper from sale-a-bration last month.

There are certainly more complicated ways to do this technique, but I like this simple way of using dark card stock under heavier specialty designer paper that is simply one layer popped out on dimensionals.  Stamp or color your top piece before punching or running it through the Big Shot.

Also, make sure you save centers of images or letters (like the “O”) since you need to use every piece that you cut out to put your card front back together like a puzzle.  Just set the “O” where it came from in order to stick down the middle into the right spot.

Tip:  If you have the Springtime Foils paper, it colors best with lighter Stampin’ Blends colors.  The darker colors tend to cover up the metallic details.
