I’m very excited to be sharing Stampin’ UP!’s new Color Renovation with you! As of June 1 we will have even MORE fabulous colors in papers, inks, stamp pads, watercolors and more! Because we’ve added so many fabulous colors (trust me, I have sample sheets from the new In Colors – they’re delicious!) we must make room by retiring some colors.
These embellishments were created with one of my favorite retiring colors, Pixie Pink (ink and cardstock – stamp is an old one I had in my stash).
I have added links on the right of this blog to a list of retiring colors and those sticking around. Our stock of retiring colors is GOING FAST! If you love these colors you need to stock up NOW before they’re all gone! Simply click the link to my online shop to the right.
Have a great week!
I love stamps (obviously! ;)) but I especially love stamps with versitility. I like to use my purchasing power to really get milage out of my supplies. Take for example the “Simple Birthday Thanks” stamp from Stampin’ UP!
While I love the simple thank-you note on the inside of the cupcake, did you know you could take that out? Before I mounted this stamp I used an Xacto knife to cut out the wording portion (and the wording on the identification sticker). These I mounted separately so I can use just the cupcake, just the wording, or both.
Here is a paper-pieced version of this cupcake in my Mama Bear Stamps Etsy shop right now (I used scraps for this people – YOU can do this!!)
Just a quickie to link to another blog I love! 🙂 Jennifer McGuire has a post on her blog today using all Stampin’ UP! stamps! Who doesn’t love Jennifer?! Her work inspired me to start stamping a few years ago and I haven’t looked back! 🙂
Check out her blog post here and let me know which new product you’re most excited about in the NEW Summer Mini Catalog. There just MIGHT be a bit of blog candy for one random comment… 😉
I love blogs. I mean, I REALLY love blogs. It’s like reading a little non-fiction book right on my screen, any time. I love serious business blogs, financial blogs, cooking blogs (even though I can’t cook!), decorating blogs and of course, crafting blogs. Google Reader is my new obsession! Now I can read all my favorite blogs in one place. I also have Google Alerts set up for some topics and I can read those here too. FAB.U.LOUS!
I wanted to pass along a neat project idea I found today during my blog reading. Hop over there to read the full directions. I hope you have a great day!
The Summer Mini Catalog is finally HERE! I’ve had this hot little baby in my hands for a while, but now you can ALL view it! 🙂
Stampin’ UP! has put together this fabulous video about the new products. Check it out, then view the mini catalog over on the right sidebar of my blog. To purchase any of these products, simply click the “Shop 24/7” button. And if you’d like to be one of the first people to host a Summer Mini workshop, just let me know!
Have a great week! T
