Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy So Thankful!

‘Sup, y’all?  Are you having a good week?  I am starting to settle down and enjoy being retired, I think!  We spent yesterday getting some shopping done, having lunch at Costco and wandering thru Sams.  Then we came home and watched a movie.

All without checking work e-mails or worrying about a meeting in the afternoon!  It sort of didn’t suck! 😉

I did settle in enough to make a card to share with you – and it’s a super easy one – using one of my favorite design techniques – angled panels.  And I did it with the pretty Beauty & Joy stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The color scheme for this one is from this week’s TGIF Challenges.

And the thankful theme fits nicely with the Just Us Girls Word Week challenge.

I started with a panel of Early Espresso card stock that I embossed in the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing folder and then matted on Pear Pizzazz for the card front.

Next up – two pieces of Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP – one in Calypso Coral and the other in Pear Pizzazz.  I cut a Rectangle Stitched Die from each one and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

For the art – I inked up the leaves image from Beauty & Joy in Calypso Coral and stamped it off once on scrap paper.  Then I stamped it about 5 times without re-inking – turning the stamp a little bit each time – to create the full “tree” top.  For a little shimmer, I stamped the image one time in Golden Glitz Delicata Ink.

Under the tree top – I stamped the basket image in Early Espresso.  Then I cut the image with the second-largest Stitched Shapes circle die.

I popped the circle onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Whisper White – I stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  I added it with Liquid Glue and a Dimensional (on the right end).

I tied a simple bow with two lengths of Whisper White Solid Baker’s twine and adhered it with a scrunched up Glue Dot.  To finish off, I added a small Gold Glitter Enamel Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a Pear Pizzazz-matted piece of Calypso Coral Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Calypso Coral “tree top” and an Early Espresso trunk on the front…

…and I added a little more of the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Simple – but beautiful.  That’s how I see the Beauty & Joy stamp set and I know you will, too!  I hope you like!

Purple Posy Ink To Be Discontinued Permanently

Stampin’ Up! provided us with an update about Purple Posy Inks.  Despite their efforts to resolve issues with Purple Posy ink, they’ve learned that the ink color is still shifting over time.

All of Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive ink colors are run through a vigorous series of tests to get ahead of challenges like this, and to ensure colors are accurate and meet our standards of coordination. Purple Posy DID pass regular testing standards in time-simulating ovens, but they’ve now identified that it fell short when it came to actual time passing. The color begins to shift once the ink has rested in the ink pad for about six weeks.

This means that the color isn’t coordinating with our other colors as strictly as SU! requires.  Due to these ongoing challenges, they’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue Purple Posy classic ink as of November 5, 2019.  The following items will no longer be available to purchase:

  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 150084)
  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (item 150091)
  • 2019–2021 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pad Assortment (item 150087)

All other Purple Posy products (such as Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, Purple Posy Cardstock, Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends, etc.) will remain available for purchase.

So – I know this is disappointing to many of you – but…I am actually pleased that SU! is taking this step.  One of the major draws of Stampin’ Up! products is the color coordination across the different products.  We can count on things matching up as we create!  And if Purple Posy isn’t “matching up” – then….this is the right thing to do!

Already purchased the ink pad a refill?  While Stampin’ Up! can’t replace Purple Posy ink pads for customers who’ve already received them, anyone with concerns regarding the color shifting properties of their Purple Posy ink pads may contact Demonstrator Support and receive a $7.50 coupon code as compensation. The coupon codes will expire on January 1, 2020.

Thanks for your understanding, y’all!

How do you tell this face that he’s simply too big to be a lap dog anymore??

Uhm…you really don’t.

His self-assessment skills are pretty suspect…

Stampin’ Up! Wiggle Worm Birthday for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Birthdays!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to make a card for a tiny human’s birthday.  You know – of the age where they don’t know (or care!) what they get for a present – let alone what the card looks like.  Or…if there even IS a card! 😉  Which means – this card is really for the tiny human’s mother, right?  So – I went uber-cute with the new Wiggle Worm stamp set and bundled Wiggle Bug Dies.  And I put my bugs on a Brick & Mortar 3D embossed panel.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with some Crushed Curry paper from the new Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

For the “brick wall” – I swiped my Cajun Craze Ink Pad across the embossing side of the new Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I carefully placed a Very Vanilla panel into the folder, closed it, and embossed it in my Die Cutting machine.

I cut the embossed panel down to its final size and matted it on Mossy Meadow.  Then I lightly brushed over it with an almost dry Cajun Craze-inked Sponge Dauber – just to add a little more color to the “bricks” – and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Mossy Meadow leaf with the Wiggle Bug Die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  The Wiggle Worm sentiment was stamped twice – once in Crushed Curry and once in Cajun Craze.  I cut the Cajun Craze sentiment with the oval die from the Petals Labels Die and fussy cut the Crushed Curry “birthday” with my Paper Snips.  I edged the little banner with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the sentiment with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stuck the whole thing onto the card front with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped a few bugs and teensy bees (LOVE!) in Tuxedo Black.  I added some detail to each bug in Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.  Then I colored the bugs with my Light Old Olive, Light Daffodil Delights, Light Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker (the bees).  I cut all the bugs with their matching Wiggle Bugs Dies.

I adhered the bugs and bees with Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.

I tied a little bow from new Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I tucked another couple of bees underneath it – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a tiny little sentiment from Wiggle Worm in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla panel – then added a few more of the adorable two-step bees.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Wiggle Worm bug and bees on the front…

…and I put some more Crushed Curry Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap – plus some more bees! 🙂

Et Voila!  Not really my normal “kind” of card – but I am sort of loving this new set!  The Wiggle Worm stamp set and bundled Wiggle Bug Dies…too much fun for creating all sorts of wild and crazy bugs!  And – the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  Are you kidding??  It’s perfect!  I do hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Jaimie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been up to!

New 3D Embossing Folder Plate Now Available!

The new 3D Embossing Folder Plate (item 149658) is now available to order! It’s designed to work with our new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders).

You can click on the picture above and open the flyer – then print it and keep it by your embossing machine and new 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  It’s got your new “sandwich” information right on it!

Remember that carryover 3D embossing folders will not be available to order at the start of the new catalog but I’ll let you know when they’re available to order.

Also keep in mind that we expect to receive staggered plate shipments in all markets during June and July as we build inventory. Which means, you may experience periods of time when it is unavailable to order if inventory is depleted; it will become available to order again when inventory is replenished.

How to Use the New Plate

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in most die-cutting machines. The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results.  Stampin’ Up! won’t be responsible for replacing products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.
