New Stampin' Blends Colours and Colour Chart download

Stampin' Up! Stampin Blends Colour Chart - coloured
One of my favourite things about a new catalogue is new colours and the prospect of new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

I'm so happy the 2021-22 Annual Catalogue includes 5 new colours - Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, and Pale Papaya. 

That gives us 10 new Stampin' Blends markers - 5 colours with a light and dark shade for each colour.

I've updated my Stampin' Blends colour chart to include the new colour markers and also re-align the retiring colours. Can you believe this is version 7.

If you haven't used my colour chart before, it makes it easy to find shades to blend together and keep a record of what colours you have. Plus it's just so pretty coloured in. *smile*


 

This is the finished chart - but don't try to print from this pic - download the pdf for your region below.

Colour Chart Changes for 2021
  • Colours re-ordered to reflect the new spectrum of colours and to help you coordinate shades.
  • There are two columns for current colours and a third for retired colours. This means if you don't have or want to include the retired colours on your chart, you can cut that section off. 
  • I've included a small pale grey watermark with my blog info so people can find updates more easily.

Chart Tips
I really hope you enjoy colouring your new chart and find it useful. Here are some tips to get you started.
  • Print your chart on Basic White cardstock for most accurate colours (thick or regular). - You may need to choose the 'fit to page' option on your printer.
  •  You can laminate your chart once complete to help protect it against fading & damage.
  •  Small Chart with jump ring - Cut into 3 tables, then laminate, punch a hole in corner & add a jump ring or ribbon to attach together.
  • Save the link to this page on Pinterest so you'll be able to find future updates easily.

Most bundle discounts on carry over items will also end with the catalogue too so make sure you get all you want before it ends.

Christmas Mini Retirement List - Discounts galore!


It's Christmas Mini Catalogue retirement time - already? The list of items being discontinued is out - and huge! so our Year End Closeout Sale starts today. Tons of items are discounted - between 10% and 50% so you're sure to find lots of items you want on the list.

The sale starts today and the catalogue officially ends on January 4th. All retiring items are available while supplies last only or until 4 January, so get in quick.

Shop directly from my online store or e-mail me at di@colourmehappy.com.au to order if you'd prefer.

  • Orders over $250 - You'll earn at least 10% Stampin' Rewards freebies on your order. Please don't use my code so you get to spend them in your order.

MY TOP PICKS

It's hard to narrow down my pick as so many of the favourites I got this year or last) are on this list.

The fab Tag Buffet Kit is a great place to start. While it's shown as a tag kit, I've been making my Christmas cards with it. It's now 50% off (now just $26) so I think I need another one. Pick up the coordinating Tag Buffet stamp set at 20% off for $24.80. Watch out for a peek of my cards later this week hopefully.


Then, you can get up to 50% items in the Brightly Gleaming Suite of products

 
Some of my faves are not as hugely discounted but still not to be missed, like the unique Dove of Hope bundle or the fab word bundle, Peace & Joy.


Many sets and suites are useful for Christmas & all round creating, like the Gift Wrapped bundle, In the Pines bundle, and Trimming the Town suite of goodies.

 

I could go on but you just need to check out the list and find your favourites.


There's also a small list of items that are carrying over - which I'll post later when available. If you have any questions about the retirement list or my picks, just leave a comment.

Happy stamping & shopping!

Stamping Sisters November Tutorial Bundle - Petal Pink Poinsettia


Hello & welcome to November and a new Stamping Sisters Tutorial Bundle. This month's bundle includes
4 Christmas cards - all in not so traditional colours just for a fun twist. Of course they'd look great in more traditional colours too.
 
It’s been a huge and challenging year for us all so the team have decided to take a break from our monthly Stamping Sisters tutorial bundles. Our November bundle will be our last for 2020. To thank you for your interest and support this year, we're offering our new November tutorial bundle FREE. Yes, Free! We hope this will help to you get your Christmas cards completed and in the mail.

Here's a peek at the 4 tutorials included in this month's bundle. As usual, each tutorial includes a bonus project idea too. That's 8 Christmas ideas you can try.

 
All previous month’s tutorial bundles will also remain available to purchase, including our October Christmas card bundle.  Read on for more about my November projects and how to get your free November bundle.
 
Pretty Pink Poinsettia

I'm still in love with the Poinsettia Petals bundle so I had to use it again this month, this time with a very soft and pretty look. You may be surprised to know that real poinsettias can actually be this colour. Who knew!

I stamped my poinsettia with basic gray ink to give it a softer outline, then coloured with Stampin Blends markers. I was a bit thrilled with how the final colour turned out. Some Wink of Stella made it even better of course.

Bonus Poinsettia Ornament

I love creating Christmas decorations that can be sent and used by the receiver each year, so I made a larger poinsettia in the same colours and turned it into a Christmas ornament. The back has another stitched circle with sentiment.

Stamping Sisters October Tutorial Hop - Christmas is coming!

 
Happy World Card Making Day! We're celebrating with a brand new Stamping Sisters Tutorial bundle and blog hop. Hello & welcome.

Whether you've arrived here from the lovely Ellen's blog or another way I hope you'll love what we've created for you.

Our October tutorial bundle includes 5 traditional themed Christmas cards - baubles, bows, trees and a poinsettias from me. Hop with us you'll find 5 more bonus projects inspired by them too. That's 10 Christmas card ideas you can make one one or lots of.

Here's a peek at our bundle projects.

My tutorial project features a gorgeous 3d poinsettia - one of my favourite Christmas elements - this one is made with the Poinsettia Petals bundle and I just love how it turned out - a fresh, modern take on traditional colours and themes.

LET'S HOP!

I created another poinsettia project with many of the same supplies but in different colours for this month's hop.

 
I coloured my poinsettia with Real Red and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, and teamed it with papers from the Heartwarming Hugs paper pack (15% off during October) and sentiments from the Dove of Hope stamp set.

Inside I've used the same papers with another sentiment from the Dove of Hope stamp set & bundle.

If you like this card, you're sure to love my tutorial which includes all my tips for creating beautiful dimensional poinsettias in a different colour combo. Shop this month's tutorial and all past tutorials here in my tutorial store.
