Items made with newly released products

This is the most exciting time of year

This is the best time of year to be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator; it’s the most exciting time of year, even more so than Christmas!  This is when the demonstrators get to see the new Annual Stampin’ UP! catalog and even get to order some sneak peak items!

Last weekend I attended the Stampin’ UP! OnStage event in Hartford, CT.  There the new catalog was unveiled, I got to meet up with some old friends, make new friends, partied a little bit, hear some exciting announcements from the home office, and take home some new, not yet released stamp sets and accessories.  And yes, I took home a new catalog too, along with some swag!  And of course, the swaps!  More on that in my next post.

Of course the new catalog brings new products which is very exciting.  In order to make way for new, some products will be retiring.  You can see the list of Retiring products here and here.

The announcement that created the most excitement was the Color Revamp for 2018! 2018 Stampin' UP! Color Revamp

In addition to the InColor program (where 5 new colors are added each year for a 2-year duration) several colors are being retired, and some new colors are being added, and some previously retired InColors are coming back for a permanent placement in the current color line-up.  So without any further adu, let’s take a look.

First, here are the In Color Collections. Each collection is available for a 2-year period.  Each color a set of 5 colors is cycled in, and a set of 5 colors is rotated out. This shows both In Color collection side by side.  Stampin' Up! InColorsNext we have some returning colors that will now have a permanent place in our color line-up.  Stampin' Up! Returning ColorsI’ve been pining the loss of Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss and have been hoping for their return.  So glad to welcome all of these colors back!

In order to keep up with current color trends and to keep our color palette fresh, several brand new colors are being introduced.  Here they are: Newly added colors to the Stampin' UP! Color CollectionWhen you put it all together, this is what the new color palette for 2018 will look like:  Stampin' Up! New Color CollectionsBasic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White have been moved out of the Neutrals Collection, into a Basics Collection, in order to keep all of the colors in each collection an exclusive Stampin’ Up! color.  This actually creates a total of 53 colors, versus the 50 that were available previously.

I told you this is the most exciting time of year!   As a demonstrator I can pre-order these colors and they are on their way to me.  I’ll be posting color swatches of the new colors along side current colors so you can see how they compare.

Of course to make room for new colors and returning colors, other colors had to be retired.  Colors that are no longer as fresh and trendy are retired.  The list of retiring colors is as follows:

Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, and Wisteria Wonder.  All items in these colors will be retired (cardstock, ink, ribbon, etc.) and will be available until May 30th or while supplies last.  My advice would be stock up on these retiring colors now before they are sold out.  You can shop your favorite color by color collection here.  Just click on the color you want and you’ll see every item in that color!  Pretty cool, right?

Now I know I just gave you a lot of information to digest.  You can get

WOW!!!  It’s SO EASY to make awesome cards with this stamp set!

I recently held a class where we made this card: Epic CelebrationIf this looks familiar, it’s because I CASE’D it from the catalog!    I copied the front layer of the gift bag on page 12 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog and turned it into a card.  Sometimes you see something that is so perfect you just want to make it!   The Stampin’ Up! catalogs are chock full of wonderful examples just waiting for us to make!  Love it!   You can view the catalogs here.

Another class, another card using the Epic Celebrations stamp set.  This one features an inked embossing folder background and the sneakers are colored with the watercolor pencils and a blender pen.

I’m addicted to coloring!

My name is Nancy Gleason, and I’m addicted to coloring!  Adult coloring is such a popular hobby but when you are coloring with the Stampin’ Blends markers and the new stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!, it’s like adult coloring on steroids!  And I’m not ashamed it’s created an addiction!

The new round of Sale-A-Bration was just released on Feb. 16th and this new Blossoming Basket bundle with the Blossoming Basket stamp set and coordinating Basket Weave TIEF is enabling my addiction!  Let me show you what I’ve been working on:Blossoming Basket stamp set colored with Stampin' Blends

The coordinating Basket Weave Textured Impression Embossing Folder has a deep texture that is just the perfect compliment to this basket.  I added some ink to the TIEF to create even more depth!  A 2″ strip adds just enough texture to this card.

The more I use the Stampin’ Blends markers the more I love them!   Look at the shading you can achieve:  I used Crumb Cake for the basket, Daffodil Delight on the large rose, Calysp Coral for the smaller roses, Cherry Cobbler for the berries, and Old Olive for the leaves.  A small swipe of Ivory under the basket helps to ground it.

Blossoming Baskets in Yellows & Oranges

Have you tried the Stampin’ Blends yet?  I can’t get enough of them!  You can see some other projects I made with Stampin’ Blends here and here.  Come back again as I’ll have another card that I made with this stamp set but in a totally different color combination.

Sale-A-Bration

Blossoming Basket

This is the stamp set Blossoming Basket that is available for free during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order.  You can always order Stampin’ Blends to qualify for this stamp set which comes bundled with the Basket Weave TIEF. You can watch a video from Stampin’ UP! here on the Blossoming Basket bundle.

Click here to place an online order now.

So much to color and not enough time to do it!  Too bad I have to go to work every day!  I’d rather stay home and stamp and color all day! That would be much more fun, don’t you think?  After looking at what you can do with Stampin’ Blends markers, it’s not really a bad thing that I’m addicted to coloring!

 

I’m loving Lots of Lavender

Ever since I got my order with the new products from the  2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalogs, I’ve had a hard time putting down the Lots of Lavender stamp set.  So much so, that I haven’t even opened up most of the other stamp sets I ordered.  YIKES, right?  I’m just loving Lots of Lavender so much – it’s so versatile.

To see some of the other projects I’ve created with this set, click here and here, or just go to my Pinterest Board Sale-A-Bration 2018.

So when the TicTacToe Challenge posted a new challenge and one of the squares was floral, guess what I chose?  Yup, that’s right – Lots of Lavender.  No surprise there, right?  So here is the challenge:

TicTacToeChallenge #030

And here is my submission, Right Column Down (Floral, No Sentiment, Purple).

Lots of Lavender, TTTC030, purple, floral, Nancy Gleason, My Stampin Space, Sale-A-Bration 2018

The beauty of this stamped image, accented by a bow of Tinsel Trim, speaks for itself – it doesn’t need a sentiment.  Shades of purple are used with just a touch of blue, green & pink.

Come back tomorrow to find out how to make this project yourself – I’ll be posting a project tutorial.

Aren’t you loving this stamp set?  You can get this set for FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  As a level 1 reward, you can choose this item (#147194) an 11 piece photopolymer stamp set with a $50 purchase (before shipping & tax).  Click here to place an order, and please use Host Code  EV9JYCGC when placing an online order of $150 or less.

Going for the Gold with the GDP!

This week the Global Design Project#109 is hosting a Color Challenge.  Here it is:

Global Design Project #109

And here is my entry:Deck the Halls for the GDP

The Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Framelits dies make making Christmas cards a snap! (And you can bundle and save 10%!)  The perfectly coordinating images and intricately detailed dies make it look like I’ve spent hours on this card, but it was easy enough to mass produce a lot of these cards in a short time period.  The Merry Music DSP makes for a nice background and the gold doilies add the right amount of bling with over-doing it.  (The Merry Music DSP is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale going on thru October 31st.)

Want to know a little secret?  I actually designed this card last week for my #WorldCardMakingDay class.  As I sat down to write this post, I saw the GDP announced their Color Challenge and since I hadn’t shared this project yet, and the colors just fit this color challenge exactly, well, if the shoe fits….   Sometimes things just fall into place perfectly.

I highly recommend this product suite!  If you can only get 1 bundle or suite from the Holiday catalog, it would be a tough choice between this Merry Little Christmas product suite and the Quilted Christmas product suite.  Both have an awesome stamp set and coordinating framelit dies that can be used for more than just Christmas, and both have a complimentary array of embellishments.  If you missed my earlier posts showing the Quilted Christmas product suite, please click here and here.

Take a few minutes to head over to the Global Design Project to see all the awesome designs.

Here is another look at my card, and the supply list you’ll need to recreate this card yourself.  Click Here to shop my online store for any supplies.  Deck the Halls for the GDP
