Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frosty Woven Heirlooms

Well – here we are!  HAWWWMP DAY!!!  And only two days away from Brian King’s Stamping Event (on Friday) and then Onstage on Saturday!!  Whoo-hoo!!  It’s going to be a great weekend, y’all! 🙂

Now – on a slightly more somber note – I had need of a sympathy card this week.  🙁  So…I pulled out my Woven Heirlooms bundle and…some Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP to make one.  Take a look-see:

The layout is loosely based on the sketch side of this week’s FUSION challenge.

I started with two pieces of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP – both of the same pattern.  I matted one piece on Smoky Slate for the card front.

From the second piece, I cut the oval frame from the Heirloom Frames die set.  Then I embossed the frame in the matching 3D Embossing Folder.

I placed Stampin’ Dimensionals around the back of the frame and adhered it to the card front – aligning the pattern.

On the cut-out piece (the oval from the middle of the die cut frame), I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms in Highland Heather ink.

I cut the second-largest scalloped oval from Smoky Slate using the Ovals Layering Dies and adhered the sentiment to it with Liquid Glue.

I slid the matted sentiment inside the popped-up frame and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the embellishment, I cut two little flowers with the Frosted Frames dies from Vellum card stock and one from Highland Heather card stock.  I also cut a Vellum pine bough with the Beautiful Boughs dies.

I colored the backs of the Frosted Frames vellum die cut flowers with my Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend and the back of the pine boughs with my Dark and Light Pretty Peacock Blends.

I spread Shimmery Crystal Effects on the vellum die cuts and sprinkled them with Ice Stampin’ Glitter.

I created a “bouquet” by adhering the stems together with Liquid Glue – then adhered it to the frame with more Liquid Glue.

I tied a double-loop bow using a length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and one of Silver Metallic Thread, then added it with a Glue Dot.  A Pretty Peacock gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack finished it off.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Woven Heirlooms in Highland Heather on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I stamped the flower from the Frosted Foliage stamp set in Highland Heather that I stamped off THREE times before stamping the panel.  I added another Pretty Peacock gem to finish it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Frosted Foliage flowers on the front in Highland Heather – I stamped the image four times without re-inking…

…and another piece of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I hate needing this card, but…I hope that it will bring a smile to the recipient.  I love how several different bundles – some that are “holiday/Christmas” sets! – can be pulled together to make an unrelated card.  Woven Heirlooms is a beautiful set in its own right – and is especially gorgeous with the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP and images from Frosted Foliage!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frosted Beautiful Boughs for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use the gorgeous photo-realistic Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP for it – letting it really shine thru.  I paired it up with the Frosted Foliage and Peaceful Boughs bundles to make…this!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I also played along with The Paper Players theme challenge…

I started by matting my beautiful Feels like Frost Specialty DSP on some Pretty Peacock for the card front.

With the Beautiful Boughs Dies, I cut a couple of boughs from Vellum card stock.  Using my Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend, I colored the BACK of the boughs.  On the front, I added some Shimmery Crystal Effects and then sprinkled them with Ice Stampin’ Glitter.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Boughs in Pretty Peacock.  Then I cut it out with the smaller label die from Beautiful Boughs.

I cut a little Silver Foil banner – snipping the ends with my Paper Snips.

Finally, I cut three Silver Glimmer Paper berry-boughs with the little die in the Frosted Frames die set.

I adhered the Silver Foil banner with Liquid Glue.  Then I used a Glue Dot to add some loops of Silver Metallic Thread.  The berry-boughs and Glitter-covered boughs were next – adhered with Liquid Glue.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off, I added some Pretty Peacock gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones set and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a Frosted Foliage sentiment in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped some berries from Frosted Foliage in Silvery Shimmer Delicata Metallic Ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Frosted Foliage berries in Silvery Shimmer Metallic Ink on the front…

…and some more woodsy Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP does all the work – with a quick assist from the Peaceful Boughs and Frosted Foliage bundles – to create an icy Christmas Card!  I love the sparkly Pretty Peacock Vellum boughs, too, don’t you? 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!

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frost Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

When I saw the color challenge, I immediately thought “Come Sail Away Suite”.  I mean – serious.  But then I thought – come on, Mare – let’s get outside the DSP pack.  So…I looked arround and decided to go with the new Feels Like Frost suite – coming SOON in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  Take a look-see at what I came up with!

And…the color challenge (yea – I KNOW that you already know, but…it’s habit!).

I also borrowed a little inspiration for the layout from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

 

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and made a little “DSP”.  I used the small flower image from Frosted Foliage and stamped it all over in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue.  Then I matted it on Soft Suede for the card front.

The next panel is more Whisper White, covered in stamped-off-once Night of Navy with the same flower image.  It’s also matted on Soft Suede and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Finally – I cut a small piece of the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP, matted it on Soft Suede and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Frosted Foliage in Soft Suede on Balmy Blue.  Then I used the frame die in the Frosted Frames Dies (bundled with the Frosted Foliage stamp set for a 10% savings!) to cut it out.  That frame is a lot bigger than I needed – so I cut it half way – moved the die to shorten it up and cut it from the other direction to make the smaller label.

While I had the die set out, I cut some leaves and flowers in Balmy Blue and Night of Navy.

I created the collage – starting with the leaves – using Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and some Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon.  I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and finished it with a Linen Thread Double-Loop bow, adhered with a Glue Dot.

Finally – I added a few Night of Navy jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used Balmy Blue and Night of Navy ink to stamp the flower from the front on a Whisper White panel.  I used stamped-off-once ink for all of them.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Frosted Foliage flowers on the front…

…amd a little more of the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this gorgeous Suite – anchored (see what I did there?  Just think about it a minute – it’ll come to you…) by the spectacular Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP and finished up with the Frosted Foliage bundle!!  I hope you like!
