Introducing Stampin’ Blends!

Hi!  Today is the day!! Stampin’ Blends are now available for YOU to purchase!  I finally had a chance to play with mine – what fun!

Stampin' Blends, Color Me Happy, Project Kit, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This card is made with the Color Me Happy stamp set and coordinating Color Me Happy Project Kit.  You can purchase the two together and SAVE!!  Please note the Color Me Happy stamp set and coordinating Project Kit are while supplies last!!!

For Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Up! has released 12 colors – there is both a light and a dark of each of the 12 colors.  You can purchase each marker seperately, or purchase a combo pack containing both the light and dark.  There are also Ivory, Bronze and Color Lifter markers.  To check out all the products, simply click on the Stampin’ Blends brochure in the right hand sidebar.

For my particular version of this card, I used the Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry combo markers as well as the Dark Daffodil Delight.  It was fun blending the colors to create my look – and I love that there are no streaks!!

You will need the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad to stamp your images so that you do not get bleeding of the black ink.  You will find these new markers, stamp set and project kit in my On-Line store.

I hope you will give them a try and let me know what you think!

Watercolor Wishes Cards

Hi!  Back today with some of the cards I made using the Watercolor Wishes kit.  I did make all 20 cards (changed a few of the sentiments, but stuck to the layouts provided in the directions) and also 2 extra cards.  I won’t show you all the cards the kit makes, just a few, but will show you the 2 extra cards I made.  I still have some pieces left, so will make a few more.

First up, two of the cards following the directions in the kit:

SU! Watercolor WishesI like the clean look of this “hello” card.  The stripes are already on the base layer, so it is just a matter of stamping “hello” and adding the die cut flowers that are included.  I believe this also calls for sequins, but as I didn’t have any glue dots or mono-multi with me, I couldn’t add them.


SU! Watercolor Wishes

Next up is this “Celebrate” card.  This is a smaller card size, so not likely able to go through the mail, but easily tucked or attached to a gift.  Very simple and non-gender specific.  One of the reasons why I love this kit – the cards can be used for anyone depending on what you add to them.

Ok, so on to the two extra cards I made.  For this card, I cut the base layer in half and mounted it onto a Whisper White card stock base.

SU! Watercolor Wishes

I hand-cut the blue border around my sentiment from the empty die cut labels that were provided.  Then just hand cut a small piece of Whisper White to fit behind the border and there is my sentiment panel.  The flower and leaves were extras in the kit.

For my final card, I once again cut the original base in half and mounted it on Whisper White card stock.

SU! Watercolor Wishes

Do you recall the band I showed in yesterday’s post that was around the envelopes?  Well, I cut a piece of it to use on this card as a banner under my sentiment.  Once again, the border for the sentiment is cut from the excess around the original die cut and a piece of Whisper White attached behind it.  The flowers are again extra pieces that weren’t used for the original cards.

So, what do you think?  Do you like my extra cards?  All I added was some Whisper White card stock.  I would highly recommend Mono Multi as your adhesive with this kit (it is the only item you need to purchase separately from the kit) as that would allow you to attach the wooden elements, sequins and flowers without having to use another adhesive.  The kit does contain a sheet of dimensionals – which work great for adding depth for the sentiment panels.  If you are heading on vacation or a business trip and are looking for a little crafting get-away while you are gone – this kit is perfect! It contains everything but the Mono Multi adhesive.

PS – Sorry that I do not have my supply list available – the service I used has changed and I am still trying to find something that fits my needs.  If you have any questions about the supplies used, feel free to ask!





Watercolor Wishes

Hi!  Have you seen the Watercolor Wishes Kit in the Annual Catalog?  I had ordered it a while ago, but hadn’t gotten a chance to play with it until now.  WOW!!  Look at all the goodies that come in the kit!  I am in LOVE!!  Supplies to make 20 cards – all I need to provide is some adhesive!  And – each card is UNIQUE!!  Unlike the Tin of Cards Kit where you have supplies to make 4 each of the same design, this one contains 20 different cards.


And the best part is – I believe I can make more than 20 cards if I cut the bases in half where the front and back of the card contain the same pattern – and add a few sheets of Whisper White.  Also, I included the striped band that was around the card bases and envelopes, because I think I can cut it to use on one of my added cards.

Time to get busy – I’ll post some of my creations tomorrow!

If you’ve gotten this kit and used it differently than what is shown, please let me know what you did!  I’m always up for new ideas and thinking outside the box!

And, did you see 3 new products were added to Sale-A-Bration choices to replace the 3 that retired on Feb 15?  Love these new products – can’t wait to get my hands on them!!  You can earn these FREE with every $50 purchase! (prior to S/H and tax, in the US!) Check with your local demonstrator if you live outside the USA.
