Color & Contour

Today’s projects all use the Color & Contour Bundle (158356) found on page 98 of the 2021 Annual Catalog. This bundle includes some wonderful dies that can be used for all kinds of project.

AND great news I loved this bundle so much and think you will too that I’m using it for my August Card Class. So you can get this great set and take my class for FREE. You can see my Calendar of Events and all my classes HERE. If you don’t want to wait until Class sign up begins you simply place a qualifying order during Class sign up and still get the class for free!

Want to see some of the swaps now from the Maui Incentive Trip? Today’s swaps include a couple of fun 3d projects too. This 3 projects also use the soft and lovely Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (155499) pack.

I just love the soft subtle colors in this Designer Series Paper.

And this card uses a fun fold that is quick and easy.

And speaking of quick and easy our Ombre Gift Bags (155479) make quick as simple gifts holders like this next project.

The Ombre Gift Bag has been teamed up with it’s coordinating 2021 In Color Designer Series Paper (155641) making this project so simple! And finally I’m all about the chocolate! This next little holder was created with our Delightful Tag Topper Punch (149518).

Simply cut your Soft Succulent card stock to the width of the punch and then punch one end. Fold it as desired and then decorate. See quick and easy! This treat holds a Ghirardelli square, which is always a popular with my group.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more swaps and photos from the Maui Incentive Trip.

Sweet as a Peach

Today’s card uses one of the Suites from the Annual Catalog, It immediately drew my attention with it’s wonderful color pallet. After all I live in Georgia, so how could I resist a set great sentiments and images of peaches? We are the peach state after all.

I think you’re going to really like this Suite, so much so I’m going to be doing a class with it in August! I made today’s card for the Maui Incentive Trip card swap that I will be participating in this week. And really love the way it turned out using a simple sponging technique to create a two tone effect on the fruit and branches.

And it’s a fun fold too! So why not check out my video tutorial and see what you think?

Pinch me… I can’t believe we’re in Maui!

And on a personal note since today is the first day of the Maui Incentive Trip I wanted to share the little package that I received last month with our travel documents.

This little package contained a Maui pin, along with our name tags, luggage tags, travel wallet with paperwork, and masks since Maui has a mask mandate still in place.

I can’t tell you how excited we are to be in Maui, courtesy of Stampin’ Up! And we wouldn’t be going if it weren’t for my amazing team, The Blue Mountain Stampers and my wonderful stampers, and customers. This will truly be a trip of a life time for us. So thank you again and stop back by, as I’ll be sharing some photos will you both here and on my facebook page with you as I’m able.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the cute little 3D project I made for the swap with you.

Enjoy!

Bold, dramatic & fabulous Evening Evergreen

Today’s card are monochromatic cards that have been made using our NEW 2021-2023 In Color Evening Evergreen. Monochromatic cards are wonderful since they can use limited supplies and make an impact.

This first card was stamped with the Very Versailles stamp set (149275) found on page 101 of the Annual Catalog.

The sentiment was punched out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (152883) and mounted on a piece of card stock. and the ribbon on the sentiment is our Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon (155573) that has been trimmed down so that just the solid edge has been used. More detail was added using the Detail Trio Punch (146320) and the Brilliant Wings Die (155523).

And how about the holidays? Here is a wonderful card that has been made using the Perfectly Plaid stamp set (158335) and Pine Tree Punch (149521).

The Treasured Tags Pick a Punch (154425) was used to punch out the sentiment and of course that Open Weave Ribbon (155573) was used as a band of color behind the sentiment. Recognize the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing folder(153576) in the background? Such a great folder that is easy to sponge so that all the detail pops!

So what do you think of our newest In Color, Early Evergreen? I love that this years In Colors come with total coordination – Ink, Card stock, Stampin’ Blends, Ribbon, and even Jewels.
