The Stampin' Up! North American convention is quickly approaching and I am starting to panic - I want to make some swaps and as this is my first time attending, I am unsure what to expect and feel a bit overwhelmed! Even though I am a rookie demonstrator I have been using SU products for 10 years or more; I just hope my creations won't scream "rookie" to everyone who sees them! LOL

Happy Stampin'!

Blackberry Bliss Color Comparison

I thought I would show you a comparison of the new In Colors to other current Stampin' Up! colors. First up is Blackberry Bliss which has quickly become a lot of people's favorite of the new 2014-2016 In Colors (mine included...I think!).

As you can see, it is a much deeper, richer tone of purple than Elegant Eggplant (second from the left). From left to right the colors are Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant (I don't have that ink pad!), Rich Razzleberry, and then on the far right is Blackberry Bliss. What are your thoughts? Isn't it divine?!

Would you like a taste of ALL the 2014-2016 In Colors? You can purchase paper and ink pads in a kit! For $36.95 you will get all 5 ink pads AND 20 sheets of cardstock - 4 each of the 5 colors. To purchase the ink pads individually it would cost $36.25 so it's like getting the pack of paper free!

2014-2016 In Color 8-1/2" x 11" Cardstock and Classic Ink Pads Kit 
Item #133673   $36.95 (Canada)

Head over to my online store to order yours today or contact me to place an order!

I will be back tomorrow with another color comparison for you.

Happy Wednesday!

Loving the In Colors!

I must admit, when I got a sneak peek of the new 2014-2016 In Colors at the new annual catalogue premier I was less than thrilled. However, now that I have seen them in person and have had a chance to create with them, all I can say is YUMMM! Step aside Rich Razzleberry....Blackberry Bliss is in the house! Hello Honey is a warm yellow with a bit of a brown undertone, Lost Lagoon is a lovely blue, Tangelo Twist is an "in your face" kind of orange, and Mossy Meadow is well...just a nice, rich green!

Today's card showcases some of the new In Colors (Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist, and Hello Honey) as well DSP from the Moonlight DSP stack. The Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set was just released last month and is already sold out but Stampin' Up! heard our cries and it will be available again on June 17; if you haven't picked up Endless Birthday Wishes yet, you are definitely missing out! It has a wonderful combination of cursive and typed sentiments that is quickly becoming my "go to" set for birthday sentiments.
This photopolymer stamp set sold out very quickly after it's release last month and I anticipate it will sell out again. Once it is sold out a second time, I expect that will be it - you snooze, you lose! Please don't miss out on this fantastically versatile stamp set - I promise it will be the best $16.95 you ever spent! Contact me today to reserve your own Endless Birthday Wishes!

Happy Stampin'!

Bootiful Occasions

Hello Stampers and Happy Thursday! Today's card is one I made back in April at the crafting retreat I went to in Banff that was hosted by my upline. I was able to borrow my roomie's chevron background stamp for this card - now that I see it again, I think I am adding that stamp to my wish list! There are quite a few elements to this card and it took a while to make, but I think the end result is pretty awesome! I was inspired by a card I saw on Pintrest. The brad is retired but the linen thread and burlap ribbon are still current as are the colors of Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Early Espresso. Gorgeous Grunge was also used before the piece of Crumb Cake was embossed.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Stampin'!
