Have you seen the Pleasant Pheasants stamp set in the holiday catalog? My eye was immediately drawn to the beautiful pheasants and other fall images. Perfect to color or use with techniques like this card.
How was this technique done? You’ll need a large Clear Block, some Stampin’ Write Markers, and a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water.
Scribble the color onto the Clear Block with the Stampin’ Write Markers, this card uses Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, and Crushed curry. Then spritz with the water and stamp onto the paper. You can leave the block in place for a few seconds to help the paper absorb the color. Then all you have to do is dry and use as desired. Yep, it’s that easy!
And did you know that Stampin’ Up! has given us an qucik and easy way to create? There is a special You Can Make It Bundle option (150097) which gives you what you need to get started, why not check it out HERE.
I’ve given you a complete supply list below. Why not try this technique yourself? It’s super easy and a lot of fun.
I’ve got another project from my Holiday Catalog Kick Off for you – and a couple more Tutorials too! I originally designed this card for my Team Retreat in August, but couldn’t resist sharing it with you too!
This card is a wow with it’s texture and shimmer, that are created with a Copper Shimmer Mist, torn edge and Corrugated layers. And it’s so easy to do!
I’ve created a couple of tutorials for you. The first is a PDF for the card so you can recreate it for yourself it includes both a complete supply list and directions.

Once you play with the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon you’ll want some too – it’s to die for. And the Copper Shimmer Paint! So many ways to use this stuff – you can even use an Uninked Stampin’ Spot (141822) to create your own little Copper ink pad! How cool is that?
On to a couple of things you’ll want to know that are time sensitive:
Did you know that Fast Fuse is back? But it’s only While Supplies Last!
If you’re like me, you thought the days of Fast Fuse were done at Stampin’ Up! (You know . . .since Stampin’ Up! retired the product and everything!) However, our vendor reached out because they manufactured a surplus of Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and they offered to sell their excess Fast Fuse inventory to us. Stampin’ Up! took them up on their offer and purchased 2,500 Fast Fuse applicators and 72,000 Fast Fuse refills.
Whoo! hoo! So you won’t want to delay in ordering yours, since it while supplies last!
Items Approaching Not-Orderable Status
Here’s what Stampin’ Up! has told us.
Sales for the following holiday catalog products have exceeded Stampin’ Up!’s forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of back orders. It will be at least 30 days before these items are back in stock.
147905: Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack 147807: Chicken Wire Elements
These products will remain available until Wednesday, September 19 at 10:00 AM (MT); they will then be placed in not-orderable status. After that you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when these products are back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for these items and they are again available for purchase.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Explanatory note: Costs incurred by backorders can be in the tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars; therefore, after weighing the variables, we occasionally must make the decision to temporarily turn off an item number rather than permit back orders to accrue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, putting a product in not-orderable status while we wait for the stock to replenish allows the company to hold costs down.
