Color Revamp for 2018 - 2019 Stampin' Up!


Here it is!
The graphic below shows the complete color revamp Stampin' Up! is taking on.  The colors at the top are the retiring colors from the main collection (not including the retiring In-Colors). 
The colors at the bottom are new to the main color collection!

A very wonderful piece of news is that some of the former In-Colors are returning to the main color collection!
I'm so very happy to say that
Blackberry Bliss is coming back!
Coastal Cabana works so well with Bermuda Bay.
Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron will join the greens, and
Poppy Parade and Flirty Flamingo are added in as well.


I'll have more information soon when you can get all the new colors.

Mother's Day Items Offered

Here are a few more things I have available at our Vendor Fair.

My Mom actually has a frame just  like this hanging in her kitchen.  I made just a few of these very special frames - again, using my very favorite Painted Petals paper.
 Here's more of a close-up of the actual framed piece.  It includes stamping, Designer Series Paper (DSP), die cuts, rhinestones, ribbon, and a jeweled element.  I had such fun making the flowers, I've included them on the edges of the frame.

These dresses are made in the Daisy DSP and Picture Perfect Birthday DSP  Perfect to sit on your desk!  A nice Mother's Day gift.
Many of the dresses I made before these have rhinestones studding the necklines of these really pretty dresses.

An Eclectic Mix of Items for the Fair

I've made these crosses before.  They make fantastic gifts!


 This one was the most interesting.  I used a huge rhinestone for the center, and the epoxy complete made the back crackle!  It's really shiny now.
 This is a great set I saw from another demonstrator - it contains some very pretty cards... and a life saver for forgetful men!
 I'm thrilled to say these Name Frames were completely MY IDEA!  I took frames I had, and used a technique Robin showed at a class we coordinated on, and made these.  We had them on our table at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event we just attended.  Lots of ladies took pictures of them! 
 I'm placing these on the table, and will be taking orders with a 5 letter limit.

 I added flowers to mine simply because I could!

Vendor/Craft Fair Items - Birdhouses

The birdhouses can be found at Michaels.   Click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.
Each of these birdhouses went through this process. 
1.  Measuring and covering with Designer Series Paper (DSP).
2.  Trimming and inking edges where it was needed for aesthetics.
3.  ModPodge to protect the birdhouse and paper.
4.  Painting, sanding, and protecting the pedestals.
5.  Making flowers!  (That was really fun!)

 I could see such possibilities!  Above - the Daisy paper from Stampin' Up! 
 These two have to be my favorite.  I covered them with long retired Painted Petals Designer Series Paper, and added pedestals to each of them. 
 This birdhouse (below) is by far the largest!  It also features the Painted Petals paper. 
 I made this birdhouse because birdies need coffee too!  Yes, I know it's completely silly!  I thought this birdhouse would look great with the coffee paper. 
This is the first in a series of posts showcasing the things I'm offering this Saturday, April 14th for sale at the Vendor Fair at my school campus to raise funds for our China Club.

In addition to the papers I used, I used oh, SO much of the Tombo Liquid glue for all my projects.  I think I went through 6 bottles.  There is a lot of glue in those little bottles!

Mini Pizza Boxes 3x3 Cards

This is the Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Box.  It is food safe - though here I'm presenting it with a small set of cards.  They are perfect for a hand-delivered Thank You.

 There are four 3x3 cards in the set - one each in Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight, Rose Red, and Emerald Envy - the colors featured on the stamped piece.
 Each Thank You is heat embossed in gold.
 Since these cards are so small, I made the envelopes for them using the Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch.
