Painted Harvest and Rooted in Nature for GDP136

It’s time for another Global Design Project (GDP136) Challenge and this time we are CASEing the Designer! In the card making world you can find inspiration from so many different people and I am always in awe of some of the creations I see. The designer we are CASEing this time is fellow Canadian and Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Allison Okamitsu. Allison is one of the most talented Demonstrators out there. Her cards are always bright and fun, and her designs are always beyond gorgeous. I am so excited we are CASEing her for this challenge! Here is my card:

GDP136 - CASeing Allison

When we CASE (Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit), we can copy the design exactly or choose to take elements of the card and make them our own. Here is Allison’s card that is the inspiration for this weeks challenge.

GDP136_Allison_Okamitsu

Isn’t her card just adorable? In this case, I chose to go with Allison’s layout with the four images on the top and the sentiment on the bottom.

For my card I used one of my favourite stamp sets, Painted Harvest, as well as a new favourite; the brand new Rooted In Nature Stamp Set that will be available in the new 2018/2019 Annual Catalogue coming out on June 1st.

The colours I used are Pacific Point, Pool Party, and Daffodil Delight. I also added some embossing powder for the sentiment for an extra little touch.

I do hope you liked this card! Be sure to subscribe to my blog and newsletter by clicking the link on the right-hand side of this page! You can also catch me over on YouTube, where I share video tutorials and more.

Animal Outing 2

You may even notice something else that is new on this card, and that is our new Pearlized Doilies. These are beautiful new doilies that have a pearl finish on one side, and white on the other. I think these are going to be so versatile and they really can be used for any project. They just add that little extra something, you know?

If you want to get a copy of the new catalogue, as well as a chance to use some brand new product, be sure to RSVP to my Catalogue Launch Party on Friday, June 8th. You can view full details on my Events page, or on Facebook!

Colour Revamp Revealed

Colour Revamp

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review their color spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp! In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colours, they decided it was time to give their color collections a makeover.

You may have noticed from the Retiring Lists that many colours are going away. While I am sad to see some of my favourite colours go (goodbye my beloved Island Indigo), I am equally excited to see some returning favourites, as well as some brand new colours!

First, let’s take a look at the RETIRING COLOURS. They are below.

Colour Summary

Second, let’s new at NEW colours. Notice any returning favourites?!

New Colours

Next, let’s look at the FULL colour Reveal, including new Colour Collections.

Full Colour Reveal

Aren’t these colours delicious?! I am very excited about Merry Merlot, Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape, and Balmy Blue! Oh, and did you see that Mint Macaron is coming back?! YES!

So, what do you think about these changes? I’d love to hear your feedback in the comment section of this blog post. I am absolutely excited about this and can just imagine all of the fun stamping we can have with these colours.

There is another change coming (I know, it’s a lot to take in), but the ink pads are also changing and I’ll post about those soon! And trust me, it is good!

When the catalogue goes live on June 1st, I’ll also have some colour guides available for my customers.

Be sure to sign up for my newsletter if you’re not already on my list!

Thanks for joining me today! Happy Stamping!

NEW Stampin’ Up! 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek – Birthday Delivery Bundle

Birthday Delivery Showcase - PROMO

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Stampin’ Girl blog! My apologies for not posting in a little while, as we’ve been dealing with a flooded basement! I’ve had to start using my dining room as my craft area, but I’m at least excited I can still craft!

Any who, are you excited to see a sneak peek of a new bundle available in the upcoming 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue?! I knew you would be!

How adorable is this set?! It comes from the new Birthday Delivery Suite, which includes the stamp set, designer series paper, and framelits! The amazing thing about this suite is that the framelits cut out not only the images in the stamp set, but also those in the designer paper! Can you say, MIND BLOWN?!

Birthday Delivery - PROMO3Birthday Delivery - PROMO 2

The other great thing about this set is that it’s actually a whole suite! You can include super cute matching ribbon, cardstock, and balloon honeycomb embellishments.

I can’t wait for you to get your hands on this set as I know you will just love it. You’ll find it in the upcoming 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, which goes live on June 1st, 2017.
