Retiring Stampin’ Up! In Colors 2015-2017

Stampin' Up! In Color 2015-2017 Ink Pads

Can you believe that it will be time for a new Stampin’ Up! Catalog before too long and with it the retirement of the Stampin’ Up! In Colors 2015-2017?!  Every two years we get a new set of current, trendy colors in ink, paper, and accessories and that means the set from two years earlier will be retired.

Why should you be thinking about it now?? Because often these colors sell out really quickly after the retirement list comes out. I guess we all procrastinate and even though these colors and accessories have been available for two years, now we decide we really must have them! If there are any of these colors in any of the In Color products that you want, I suggest you go ahead and order them as soon as you can.  In fact, if you order them during Sale-A-Bration, perhaps they will help you earn a free Sale-A-Bration product!

Just click on any of the photos below to go to the 2015-2017 In Colors Page.

If you are buying any of the ink pads, be sure to get the ink refills so you can keep using your pads in the future!  You don’t want to have to go online to buy them when they are in high demand! And if you already own the ink pads, get the ink refills right away!

Here is a card I made with some of the In Colors that are retiring.

Super Bowl 2017 Punch Art Football Game Card

Super Bowl 2017 Owl Punch Football Game Card

Today is the big day! It’s Super Bowl Sunday in Houston, Texas! Here are my little Owl Punch football players ready for Super Bowl 2017 on this card! Don’t think this card is only for a Super Bowl game.  You could make this for the sports fan in your life. But when you have such a big event in your city, it’s fun to be able to make a card or project out of stamps, ink and paper.

Isn’t the Owl Punch probably the most versatile punch ever created??! There’s always something you can do with the Owl Punch! Here the owls represent the football players on the field. I wonder who kicked the final field goal?

This is a pretty easy card to make. Just cut some very narrow strips of paper for the goal post and the lines on the football field. Make the football out of a circle punch, as I described in this post. The “Awesome” greeting is stamped from the Marquee Messages Stamp Set. Just change the greeting and have it be a birthday card or “thinking of you” card or maybe congratulations on the big game.

There were lots of Super Bowl parties going on last night around Houston. And apparently it is the biggest aviation day of the year with 1600 private aircraft arriving! Someone said they will all want to leave right after the game, too! All I can think of is how much money is involved just in those private planes! Oh, and for and extra $5000, you can get a helicopter ride for up to 6 people from the airport to beat the traffic to a golf club near the NRG Stadium where the game will be played.

President George Bush and his wife Barbara are expected to do the coin toss! I’ve seen them before at an Astros baseball game so they are quite the sports fans and quite the icons in Houston! They make their home here in Houston so they have always been an important part of the city.

I heard one newscaster say she would be sad when all the Super Bowl excitement is over for Houston. It’s been a big deal here, to say the least. Now we will just see who wins the game, how well the commercials played, and how the halftime show with Lady Gaga goes. Rumor has it that hundreds of drones flying around are involved. Who knows?

When it comes to finding a way to celebrate almost anything in life, there is probably some way to express yourself with rubber stamping and papercrafting, so check out all the great supplies in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store!

Enjoy the game!

Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies Are Available Again!

If you recall, back in November, Stampin’ Up! released these new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies as an early release from the upcoming new Stampin’ Up! Catalog. Well, they were SO popular that Stampin’ Up! couldn’t keep up with the demand until they got a lot more in stock! Well, that day was yesterday so now the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies are available again!  I ordered mine at the time and have been using them ever since.  I really love these dies!  They just add a little something to the piece with the stitched look, just a little something that looks really nice.  And as stampers, we are always looking for that little extra that finishes a card or project.

Easy Ghirardelli Candy Holder

Here is just one sample I made with the Stitched Framelits Dies to add that stitched look border to my greeting, If you have some of the other shape dies with the scalloped edges, you can add another layer underneath the stitched shape and it adds a nice look, too.

Watch this Stampin’ Up! video for more ideas on using these framelits!  Then go to Stampin’ Up! Online and order yours today! (And remember, these were originally released before the holidays!!)

Check out these dies and other products at Stampin’ Up! today!  And don’t forget, with every $50 purchase you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration product!

Coming January 4th ! New Stamps & Framelits in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog!

Now that Christmas is over, we can look forward to the new Stampin’ Up! spring catalog, the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration! I loved the Holiday Catalog and hated the thought of it going away.  By New Year’s though, I think we will all be more than ready for fresh new products!

One of the new Bundles coming in the Occasions Catalog will be the Special Reason Bundle. When you purchase a Bundle, you save 10% on the products over buying them separately. This Bundle contains the Special Reason Stamp Set with flowers and greetings and the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies. When you watch the video, you will see the new design of these particular dies! I have to admit, when I first saw this stamp set and framelits I did say, “More flowers!” but after watching the video,  I know I will have these on my list for sure!

If you are new to Stampin’ Up!, Sale-A-Bration is a special annual promotion from Stampin’ Up! With EVERY $50 you spend on Stampin’ Up! products, you get to choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration item in the special brochure.

If you are a regular customer of mine, I ordered these catalogs for you from Stampin’ Up! and hopefully you received them in your Christmas mail (unless the mail lady is reading them first in the back of the post office!). If you don’t receive them by January, let me know.  If you are new and would like the hard copies of the catalogs and do not have a Demonstrator you are working with, then email me at Karen@Karenstamps.com and I would be happy to send you some catalogs. They will be online when the Occasions Catalog goes live and Sale-A-Bration begins on Wednesday, January 4th.

Watch the video above with Holly from the Home Office explaining how to use these new framelits and stamp set!

Saturday at the Stampin’ Up! Movies – Watercolor Pencils!

The Occasions Catalog for spring and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure will start arriving, if they haven’t already, in mailboxes showcasing all the new, exciting products from Stampin’ Up! for January!  January 4th to be specific!  Don’t throw them out with your store catalogs and junk mail over Christmas!

One of the first products I am most excited about are the Watercolor Pencils!  Stampin’ Up! used to have watercolor pencils when I first started stamping and I loved using them – but they were not in Stampin’ Up! colors.  These are!!  You can use them as is or you can add water, since they are “watercolor pencils”. If you don’t already own the Aqua Painter and some Shimmery White or Watercolor Paper, I would put those items on your order with the Watercolor Pencils. You can also use a watercolor brush if you like, but I love my Aqua Painter. (You actually get two, a thinner one and a thicker one in the package.)

Watch this video with Shannon West from the Home Office demonstrate various ways to use the Watercolor Pencils!  I’m sure you will want to put them on your list! And remember, during Sale-A-Bration, with every $50 you spend, you choose one FREE product in the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  This starts January 4, 2017!

If you need a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would be happy to be yours! If you would like the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs, just email me at Karen@KarenStamps.com and I will send you complimentary copies. If you are a regular customer, yours should be on their way already.

A Couple New Occasions Catalog Products…Coming!

Stampin' Up! Occasions Preorder Items

As Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, we get to preorder from upcoming catalogs, one of the many perks of being a Demonstrator. I only ordered a very few things in my Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog Preorder and received it last night. I will wait until January 4th (most likely!) when the Occasions Catalog goes live and when Sale-A-Bration begins to order MORE!Beautiful You Stamp Set

From samples I have seen online that other Demonstrators have made, I would guess that this stamp set, Beautiful You, is already very popular. I love the sketched images and the greetings. The images will be great for coloring in in kind of a watercolored look or even left plain.

I ordered the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper.  It is so soft and beautiful!  Lots of the “bokeh” look (the kind of blurry circles background), plus other really pretty patterns. It’s difficult to tell what the paper REALLY looks like until you see it in person, but I took some closer shots to give you a better idea.

Falling in Love Designer Series Paper 1

Falling in Love Designer Series Paper 2

This photo above is a close up so you can see the page with the beautiful lace pattern!  Love it!!

Falling in Love Designer Series Paper 3

Watercolor Pencils Open

I haven’t had a chance to play with these Watercolor Pencils yet, but if you are newer to Stampin’ Up! you might not know that years ago (when I started!) we had watercolor pencils, but they were not in official Stampin’ Up! colors.  These are! I think most people liked the watercolor pencils, I know I did.  Very easy to color with in different techniques using a little water one way or another to blend the color. Really fun!  You should put these on your first order! Especially with the adult coloring craze right now, these will fit right in!

Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack Sample

Even during our preorder, we were allowed to choose a free Sale-A-Bration item and I chose the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. You get two rolls of this beautiful ribbon, one with silver threads and one with gold.  They are both soft and pliable. You will love using them!

So there is a sneak peek of some new things that are coming!  Sale-A-Bration (beginning January 4th) is always a fun time because who doesn’t like to get FREE stamping things with our orders!

If you already have a Demonstrator you are working with, I’m sure you can ask her (or him!) for the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure.  If you do not have a Demonstrator you are working with and are interested in Stampin’ Up! products, I would love to be YOUR Demonstrator! I have a few extra catalogs handy for new customers, so just email me at Karen@KarenStamps.com with your contact information and I can send them out to you.  Let me know if you also want the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

My regular customers should be getting your catalogs in the mail that I ordered for you from Stampin’ Up! probably pretty soon.  Watch your mailbox and don’t lose them in the Christmas hustle and bustle!

And if you would like to be in on all the fun of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, check out some information HERE at this link. Then contact me with any questions or concerns or excitement! you have and I can tell you how to get signed up!  Great Christmas present for yourself!!

Thanksgiving Punch Art Turkey Candy Bar Wrapper

Thanksgiving Punch Art Turkey Candy Bar Wrapper

If you want a quick and easy favor for your Thanksgiving dinner, try this Thanksgiving Punch Art Turkey Candy Bar Wrapper. Just get some chocolate bars and wrap them in designer paper.  I used this generic sheet from the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper.

To make the punch art turkey to fit on the candy bar, I used the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch for the body and the 1″ Circle Punch for the turkey head. The feathers were cut out with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies  and Big Shot, but you could also use an oval punch. The turkey feet are punched with the feet of the Owl Punch!  What would we do without the Owl Punch?! The eyes are also punched with the Owl Punch but I just colored in the pupil with a black marker. The red waddle on the turkey is the little heart from the …..Owl Punch! Just cut the beak freehand.

The Thanksgiving greeting is from the ever-useful stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched with the Classic Label Punch.  I still love and use the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set a lot.  It has almost every greeting in it that you could possibly need.

Just a fun punch art turkey to make for a  Thanksgiving candy bar wrapper or you could make the same one on a Thanksgiving card. Play with the idea and make something fun!

Stitched Shapes Framelits Easy Christmas Card

Stitched Shapes Framelits Easy Christmas CardMy new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies arrived and I had to try them out on this quick Stitched Shapes Framelits Easy Christmas Card. Just making this quick card, I can tell you I love the Stitched Shapes Framelits!  As you can see the stitched look just adds a little something, just a little accent.  I think these framelits are going to be very popular!

I made the card base with Soft Suede. (I actually meant to grab Crumb Cake Cardstock, but decided that Soft Suede would be fine, too!) For the Real Red layer, I embossed it with the Sparkle Embossing Folder.  The greeting is stamped from the Suite Seasons Clear-Mount Stamp Set.  You can get this set ON SALE during November for 25% off! Don’t miss it!

Suite Seasons Stamp Set

The greeting was stamped in Real Red ink, but then I wiped off the pine needle image and colored it with an Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker. Then it is backed with a layer from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies, one with a scalloped edge.  So pretty!

Order your Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies today so you can begin using them on your cards and projects!

Here is a quick and easy project to make a Pop of Pink Swirly Scribbles Polka Dot Scalloped Tag. I simply punched a tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch out of the polka dot pattern of one of the papers in the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper. I first was going to use some other die cut flowers, but then I thought it might be fun to see how the Swirly Scribbles die cuts might work. I chose three colors in the Brights family:  Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. I also die cut some green leaves.

The banner is stamped with the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Setboth on Whisper White and Real Red so that the greeting cut be cut and adhered to the Real Red banner. These were punched with the Duet Banner Punch. You can purchase this stamp set and the punch in a Thoughtful Banners Bundle and save 10%!
