Did you hear the news?
Stampin' Up! is creating a Color Renovation! They are adding 5 brand new colors to the color collections AND bringing back 10 of the retired In Colors from preview years! Woohoo!
With the new catalog in July, here is what the color collections will look like:
CLICK on the chart to see a larger version!
The new color collections will be available beginning in July and the new Stampin' Up! catalog. All retiring colors and products will be available throughout April and May. In June, like all retiring products, they will be available only while supplies last.
I am beyond excited to get new colors. Of course, we all have our favorites that are retiring, but with all the new selections, I will have plenty of new colors to play with and those will become my favorites!
Oh, we will also get 5 extra new In Colors in the new catalog, too! And, they will stay around for TWO years instead of just one!
5 NEW BASE COLORS (see chart above):
Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso
10 RETURNING IN COLORS (see chart above):
Baja Breeze, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Riding Hood Red, River Rock, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi

Yeah…two posts from me today and none yesterday! What's up with that? lol!
I know several of my customers have questions on how to use the new Border and Corner punches from Stampin' Up! And…I'm not always there to help. I thought I'd share a video that Stampin' Up! created from one of our trainers, Bonnie Thurber! I hope it answers your questions and gives you a few pointers!

Hmmm, now to be thinking about making the wedding invitations!
Here is a picture of the two of them taken at the Wisconsin/Ohio State football game last year (they are a rival household!) We love her even though she is a Badger! lol!
Aren’t they a CUTE couple!

I was disappointed to see this It’s A Sign stamp set on the discontinued list! I had always meant to pull together a Teen Stamp Camp using this set! I love all the signs in it to make cards…and teenagers are so hard to come up with ideas for cards that seem age appropriate. They appreciate this set, too!
Here’s one using It’s A Sign that I have in mind for a cousin’s birthday card. It showcases Crystal Effects and the Mojo Monday Sketch from last week!
This card is pretty easy. I started with Pacific Point cardstock for the base card. I ran the Riding Hood Red layer thru the Big Shot with the Textured weave plate and layered it on the Pacific Point. I also used some Pacific Point Patterns Designer Paper across the bottom and hid the seam with Whisper White grosgrain ribbon. The two background strips were also Pacific Point Patterns DSP and I added Mini Brads (silver covered with White Embossing Powder to change the color!) in each corner. I stamped the You’re #1 sign with Pacific Point and Riding Hood Red on Glossy White and cut it out. Finally, I added a light layer of Crystal Effects over the top to make it glassy!
This is only ONE way to use Crystal Effects. Check out Stamping 411 for some additional samples and ideas on How To Use Crystal Effects as well as some cautions. And make sure to check out Selene Kempton’s printable Inspiration Sheet on using Crystal Effects! It is wonderful!
The materialsI used on this card are In Colors and on the retiring Last Chance list! Call me to order yours today before they sell out! Only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!
Tonight’s my Technique Class…better go get things finished up for that! Have a great day!
