Susan Tran sent me this picture yesterday afternoon.  She said that it was too hot to work outside so she created these cards with her favorite stamp set ~ Animal Outing.  You can find it on page 102 in the annual catalog.  Her cards are so much fun ~ I couldn't wait to share!!!!  Thanks, Susan ~ they're FABULOUS!



This is one of the 2019-2021 IN-COLORS introduced in Stampin' Up!'s ANNUAL CATALOG this year AND IT HAS BEEN MISSING UNTIL NOW!  Seems there has been a problem with the accuracy of the color and the SU staff responsible would not release it until the problem was corrected.  The CLASSIC STAMPIN' PAD (150084) and the CLASSIC STAMPIN' INK REFILL (150091) are both available to order.

See A Silhouette Suite

You can find this SUITE on page 133 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  As a demonstrator each Tuesday I receive information about products in the catalog that I can pass on to you.  So, look below this vibrant picture to see what Stampin' Up! has to say about the suite.

Silhouetted Adventures

A picture can have a thousand meanings, right? So what about a picture of a silhouette? Just add in some inspiration and adventure, and you can make a beautifully personalized card that could be unique for everyone in your life!

The See a Silhouette Suite is full of inspiration and adventure, with quotes and sentiments that highlight what’s really important in life. You can use the dies and the shimmer Stampin’ Emboss Powder that comes with the suite, or you can think outside of the card and make a memorable tribute to someone important to you, like the Forever frame we have in the samples above.

They will love the unique style of the See a Silhouette suite. So share these samples with your customers to celebrate any adventure they’ve had or to inspire them to take a new one!

Daisy Lane Bundle

Another bundle that I love in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is the Daisy Lane Bundle.  We have been using it all month in our stamp clubs.  I always love sharing our Bundles with you because they have coordinating products that you can get for a 10% discount when you purchase the products together.   Take a look at these products below. 

So what do you think about this great new bundle?  I will post the DAISY LANE PROJECT SHEET that we have been using all month in stamp club tomorrow for Project Sheet Tuesday!


Like Sarah said in the video you can really create some awesome 3D flowers with the punch.  You can get this bundle from my online store here.

Pigment Sprinkles & new embossing powder

Sarah embossed her card using the BIRCH BACKGROUND STAMP (page 156) and the new Shimmer White emboss powder (page 181).  After the card cooled a little she added PIGMENT SPRINKLES and spritzed the card with water.  The flower uses the DAISY LANE BUNDLE on page 23.  And, more lovely swaps from our meeting below.

Pigment Sprinkles and Sarah.....


Sarah's chart
Sarah's Color Chart

You can find Stampin' Up's PIGMENT SPRINKLES on page 179 in the annual catalog.  These are watercolor pigment crystals that you mix with water to make watercolor backgrounds and washes and to use for watercoloring techniques.  There are six jars of color ~ Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight,Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Melon Mambo ~ to coordinate with Stampin' Up's cardstocks, stamp pads, markers and stampin' blends.  (Frankly, that's one of the BIG reasons I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator ~ everything matches ~ and I don't have to worry about coordinating colors!!!  Love it!)

So, at our Team Meeting on Saturday, Sarah demonstrated these sprinkles showing the rest of us how to use them.  She sprinkled the pigment lightly on to Shimmer paper and then misted with water.  She also used an AquaPainter to apply the color.  She did a fabulous job as you can tell by the chart above.  Here's Sarah ~

I'll post Sarah's swap card tomorrow ~ she used the new Shimmer White embossing powder and the Sprinkles on the card.  It turned out fabulous and ~ she won our swap card contest at the meeting!!!  

Pressed Petals..........

SU Tuesday Picture

This suite ( page 73 in the catalog), PRESSED PETALS, uses photographs of real pressed petals to create the designer series paper!  And the suite includes a gorgeous combination of stamps, ink and paper, as well as the 3D embossing folder (Scripty ~ with text from real love poems), washi tape with adhesive petals to create flowers for your cards and album pages.  On Saturday at our Team Meeting, Monica Giberti  (from Northern Virginia) demonstrated this suite (and, particularly the beautiful petal washi tape) ~ lovely pictures follow ~ THANK YOU MONICA!!!

Shimmer Black & Shimmer White

Stampin' Up! has new embossing powder in the new annual catalog and it shimmers!  Turn to page 181 to see the listing for Shimmer Black and Shimmer White.

Embossing Powder bottleStop by the studio so that I can show you the little stars in the bottle that you can't see in the picture ~ the embossing powder glimmers!  And, the same goes for the lovely card, below, it glimmers even though you can't see it in the picture.  Sorry.

Over the Moon ~ again ~

I have considered that you may be getting tired of my infatuation with this stamp set, Over the Moon, but I keep going back to it.  It makes me smile ~ laugh, even.  So here are some more samples for you ~ enjoy these silly cows!

Wildly Happy

You can find this cute stamp set on page 101 in the annual catalog.  It is perfect for a family with a new baby, don't you think?  I have been stamping with it, using the foxes, to give as a birthday gift to a friend who lives in the Pungo area of Virginia Beach ~ she feeds foxes that live in the woods near her home!  She doesn't get near, just leaves food for the Mom and babies.
