Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Days to Remember Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Morning, y’all – happy Friday!  We’re headed into another weekend – yeah!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂

So I used a stamp set that looks like it would be complicated and confusing if you just look at it in the catalog.  The Days to Remember set is a genius way to make a calendar for any month of any year!  And I paired it with the super pretty Hand-Penned DSP and the Color & Contour stamp set with the wonderful, bundled Scalloped Contours dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at this week’s Paper Players challenge.

I started with some pretty floral Hand-Penned DSP and matted it on Misty Moonlight for the card front.  Then I matted a strip of a second design on Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the days-of-the-week image from Days to Remember in Misty Moonlight.  I added “May” in Mint Macaron.  Then, in Bumble Bee ink, I stamped the days.  It’s hard to explain how to do that – so…check out the video, okay?  I show that particular piece starting at around 4:30 in. 😉

Then I cut the calendar out with the next-to-largest die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I used the little circle image from the stamp set in Misty Moonlight to highlight the day I wanted to…you know…remember! 😉

Then I stamped the larger sentiment in Misty Moonlight and popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the two flower images in Color & Contour – stamping them both in Mint Macaron on Basic White.  Then I cut it with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

You can see how I’ve used a permanent marker to identify the “top” of the two stamps and the die.  You should be able to add a similar mark to your set – and that’ll make it easy-peasier to line everything up!

I added the flower to the card with some Liquid Glue.

To finish – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish to the top of the calender and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Days to Remember sentiment in Misty Moonlight on Basic White.  Then I added the flowers again in Mint Macaron and a single Pale Papaya Genial Gem (coming on 4 May!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Color & Contour flower on the front…

…and more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I promise that this stamp – which made me totally scratch my head when I looked at it in the catalog – is not nearly as whoo-whoo sci-fi as it looks.  Although it IS pretty darned genius! Days to Remember can help you make mini calendars – cool scrapbook pages – and amazing cards!  And Color & Contour, with the wunnermus Scalloped Contours die set is…one of my favorite new goodies!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Yesterday was National Peace Rose Day.

Yes.  That’s a thing!

Mine decided to get in on the fun!

Not to be outdone – the lavender is putting on a total show!

Nothing to do with Finn – other than he likes to chase the bumblebees that are enjoying the flowers! 🙂

  1. Sweet card! Love the calendar idea for a birthday card. Pretty flowers too! We’re finally seeing the cloud of green pollen covering everything here…always happy to see that move along! 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – that means Spring is sprunging for sure! Thanks so much, Amy! 🙂

  2. What a great video yesterday! I wasn’t sold on that set but I am now. I really appreciate the time you took to explain how to use those dates and mark the stamps/die. Plus it was a great design! I can envision Finn chasing bumblebees…and butterflies!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – he’s a flying bug chaser from way back – he’s not a fan and would like the to all go away! Glad the video helped, Karen – thank you so much! 🙂

  3. Susan K

    Well, that solves one big mystery! I hadn’t even tried to wrap my brain around how that days stamp would work but it makes perfect sense now! I love your choice of papers and design. Beautiful flowers too. Nice of your roses to show off on their special day, with an accompaniment from the lovely lavender

    • stampsnlingers

      I know! Flowers can be so accommodating when they want to be! Thank you so much, Susan – glad the video helped! 🙂

  4. Mary,
    Thank you so much for this video! I was so hoping SU would come out with “calendar “ options, so we did not have to seek those little printed ones from other vendors. However, when I saw this stamp set – I could not make sense out of how to use it… until now. Your video was fantastic and now this set has a permanent place on my “wish list”!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yeah! So glad that I could help – and I agree – it’s a very cool resource that SU! has provided! Thank you so much! 🙂

  5. Joanne James

    Mary your calendar card is such a great idea – love it paired with those Hand Penned papers! Great tip for aligning dates and days too. Thanks for playing along over at The Paper Players this week!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks very much, Joanne – glad that you like it! Appreciate you stopping by! 🙂
