Everything is rosy cropped card front
 
Everything Is Rosy Cropped Card Front Card

I designed my Everything Is Rosy Class cards to give you a nice creative sampling of all of the products in the product medley.  This wasn't an easy task because THERE ARE SO MANY ITEMS in this mega-bundle!  With all the gorgeous Designer Series Papers and pre-printed die-cuts, you can create beautiful cards without even using the floral stamps!  So, it's perfect for simple cards!  My class range from cards that just add a sentiment, to ones like this one with a little stamping and several layers. 

Background Basics—I started with a 4-1/4" x 10" base in Melon Mambo, scored at the 4-1/2" mark and folded for a shortened card front on a vertically-folded card. I added a 4-1/4" x 1-1/2" strip of the "paint stroke" pattern of Everything Is Rosy DSP across the bottom of the inside card.

Everything is rosy cropped card front 2

Sweet Stamped Layer—I stamped the Everything Is Rosy sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto a 3-1/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I positioned it in the upper right corner.  Then, I stamped the two leafy branches in Night of Navy ink as the base of a bouquet in the lower left corner. The smaller, rounded leaves branches are stamped-off for a slightly lighter color variation.

I layered the stamped piece onto a 3-1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Night of Navy, mounted it onto a 3-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of Rose Gold Foil, then attached it to the card front, all with SNAIL Adhesive.

Floral Finish—I die-cut some Rose Gold Foil foliage with the Everything Is Rosy dies. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't need a Precision Base Plate for this intricate die!  These NEW Stampin' Up! dies run so smoothly with just a regular Big Shot platform and standard plates!  I attached these foil embellishments with Glue Dots.  I finished by popping up a full-color, pre-printed die-cut from the kit!  How easy & fun!

Everything is rosy cropped card front 3

Inside The Card—I added a 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White on the inside, stamped with a few more leafy branches.  This card is one of my favorites from the class! 

Everything is rosy shimmer leaves

Everything Is Rosy Shimmer Leaves Card

The Rose Gold Shimmer Paint in the Rosy Product Medley opens up a whole new level of creativity!  There are so many fun techniques that you can try with this pearly, shimmer paint!  On this class card, I tried stamping with the paint and the results were TOO COOL!

Everything is rosy shimmer leaves 4

Stamped Shimmer—OH. MY. GOODNESS!  Stamping with these detailed DisINKtive Stamps in Shimmer Paint is incredible!  I used a Sponge Dauber to lightly cover this Everything Is Rosy leaves stamp and stamped directly onto the Melon Mambo card front.  I stamped three images above and one below where the focal point was to be positioned. 

TIP #1: Before opening the bottom, I gently shook the paint to get some paint on the inside of the cap. The Sponge Dauber fits perfectly inside the cap to get just a bit of paint. No need to use a separate palette! 

TIP #2: When you're done stamping with the shimmer paint, wash the stamp clean under tap water. It is an acrylic paint, so it will be much more difficult to get off the stamp once it's dried.

Everything is rosy shimmer leaves 3
Background Basics—I layered a 4-1/4" x 2-1/2" piece of the Everything Is Rosy pretty pink pattern onto a 4-1/4" x 2-5/8" piece of Night of Navy cardstock.  I tied some of the elegant Night of Navy Rose Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the layers, then mounted the layers onto the card front using Tear & Tape Adhesive for a secure hold.  

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped an Everything Is Rosy sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto one of the pre-printed Rose Gold labels and popped it up with Dimensionals.  I finished by adding a shiny Rose Gold foil pre-printed accents with another Dimensional.

Happy birthday gorgeous tag - two cool
 
Happy Birthday, Gorgeous Tag Cards

I'm truly going to miss the sweet blooms and pretty sentiments from the Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set when it retires on June 3.  I used several soon-to-retire items on this card and one brand new item...can you spot it? 

I created this delightful pair of cards and we'll be creating one of them at my "Last Thursdays" card class on May 30.  RSVP here.

Happy birthday gorgeous tag - coastal

Background Basics—I embossed a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the retiring Striped Scallops embossing folder, then mounted it with Tear & Tape Adhesive onto a 4-1/4" x 11" vertically-folded Coastal Cabana card base.  

Happy birthday gorgeous tag - coastal 2

Layered Flower—Next, I adhered a 4" x 1-1/2" piece of the retiring How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper along the bottom.  I wrapped some retiring Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8" Reversible Ribbon around the card front and tied it into a double-knot faux-bow.

Happy birthday gorgeous tag - coastal 3
 
Focal Point Tag—I started by punching the top of a 2" x 4" piece of Whisper White with the NEW Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  It works just like the current and carrying over Scallop Tag Topper Punch and I'm so excited to get another choice in styles!  Love it!
 
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Happy Birthday, Gorgeous sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I used that to help me position where to stamp the bouquet of flowers.
 
Beautiful Bouquet—I stamped the Happy Birthday, Gorgeous bitty blooms over the tag so that they would be peeking out from under the sentiment label.  
  • Stamp the branch twice in Highland Heather ink.
  • Stamp the larger flower three in retiring Berry Burst ink.
  • Stamp the smaller flower in Coastal Cabana 3-5 times.
  • Stamp the curly line in Granny Apple Green to fill in the blank spaces.

I popped the sentiment label onto the tag with Dimensionals, then popped the tag up with Dimensionals onto the card front. I had a little bit of extra space at the bottom of the tag, so I added the "to you" sentiment in Memento Black.

Finishing Touches—I tied a Silver Baker's Twine Bow and attached it at the top of the tag with a "pinched" Glue Dot.  Then, I finished by adding a trio of Rhinestone Jewels floating around the flowers.  

Happy birthday gorgeous tag - granny apple
Two Cool—My second version starts with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock embossed with the retiring Petal Burst embossing folder.  I added the same DSP to the bottom and tied some Whisper White Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the card front this time.

Happy birthday gorgeous tag - granny apple 2
 
Terrific Tag—The tag is essentially the same, except I swapped out the Berry Burst bloom with Calypso Coral ones and I mounted the tag on the left side.

Floral Essence - Purple Posy 2
CASEd from Julie Davison at Julie's Stampin' Spot.
 
Purple Posy Floral Essence Blissful Future Card

We start with the pretty purple posy, but I had to create this one without coordinating ink.  Due to excessive foaming, Stampin' Up! has pulled this color of ink to resolve the issue. We should see it back sometime soon.  In the meantime, I used Basic Gray and lots of the lovely Purple Posy cardstock!

Background Basics—I embossed a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Purple Posy cardstock with the Tufted embossing folder, then mounted it with Tear & Tape Adhesive onto a Purple Posy card base.  I die-cut a Whisper White square with the Stitched Shapes dies and layered than onto a Basic Black scallop square die-cut with the Layering Squares dies.  They are adhered to the card front with SNAIL Adhesive.

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Floral Essence sentiment in Basic Gray onto a 3" x 3/4" strip of Purple Posy, fishtail cut the ends and popped it up with Dimensionals.

Floral Essence - Purple Posy 3

Layered Flower—I stamped the 3-petal flower from Floral Essence in Basic Gray twice onto Purple Posy cardstock, then punched out with the coordinating Perennial Essence Flower Punch. Both layers are popped up with Dimensionals. I finished by adding a little Wink of Stella shimmer to the flower center.

Floral Essence - Rococo Rose 1.5
Rococo Rose Floral Essence Beautiful Days Card

I used the same stamp set to create the next card in pretty Rococo Rose!

Background Basics—This one begins by stamping the Floral Essences flower in Rococo Rose all over a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White. I also stamped the flower centers in Rococo Rose. I layered the background onto a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic Black, then added a 3-3/4" x 1" Basic Black strip across the front.  I wrapped a strip of the new Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon across the front, securing the ends on the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive, then mounted all the layers onto the Rococo Rose card base.

Floral Essence - Rococo Rose 2

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Floral Essence sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Stitched Shapes circle die-cut and popped it up with Dimensionals.  Next, I punched out two little Crumb Cake branches with the Leaf Punch and tucked them under the sentiment with Glue Dots.  I finished with a couple of Pearl Jewels.

Above The Clouds - terracotta tile 1.5
Terracotta Tile Above The Clouds Lifting Others Card

The NEW Woven Threads Designer Series Paper features all of the NEW In Colors and I featured a fun diamond pattern on this Terracotta Tile card.

Background Basics—I started by adhering a 1-1/2" x 5" strip of Woven Threads DSP onto a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the NEW Above The Clouds stamp set next to it in Smoky Slate ink.  The layer is mounted onto a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic Gray cardstock, then adhered to a Terracotta Tile card base.

Above The Clouds - terracotta tile 3

Beautiful Balloons—I stamped an Above The Clouds hot air balloon image in Smoky Slate onto Seaside Spray cardstock and another hot air balloon onto a Woven Threads DSP pattern. Then, I punched the shapes with the coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I stamped the balloon basket in Smoky Slate onto Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile cardstocks and punched those out, as well.  The Seaside Spray balloon was adhered with SNAIL and the Terracotta Tile was popped up with Dimensionals.  

Finishing Touches—I finished by coloring Rhinestone Jewels with Dark Balmy Blue and Dark Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends Markers and floated them around the balloons.

 

To A Wild Rose - Seaside Spray 2

Seaside Spray To A Wild Rose Blessed Card

The NEW In Colors will also be represented in a 6" x 6" In Color Designer Series Paper Pack, featuring four different patterns for each color. I love that one of the patterns in trendy gingham!  I've paired the beautiful blue Seaside Spray with another gorgeous two-step flower stamp set called To A Wild Rose.

Background Basics—I adhered a 1" x 5-1/2" strip of the Seaside Spray In Color DSP to a Seaside Spray card base.  Then, I tied some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the card front.

To A Wild Rose - Seaside Spray 3

Two-Step Flower—I stamped the solid To A Wild Rose image in Seaside Spray onto a 3" x 4" piece of Whisper White. Then I stamped the flower's outline image over the top in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the word "blessed" from To A Wild Rose in Seaside Spray ink under the flower, then added the second part of the phrase in Memento Black ink under that.  I mounted the stamped layer onto a 3-1/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Basic Black cardstock, then popped it up with Dimensionals.  

Finishing Touches—I added three Pearl Jewels to the flower center to complete this sweet flower.

Sailing home peacock 1.5

Pretty Peacock Sailing Home Congrats Card

I always welcome a new stamp set that can be used for masculine cards, so I was excited to see the awesome Sailing Home stamp set.  It looks great with the deep teal shade of Pretty Peacock.

Background Basics—I started by embossing a 5-1/2" x 2" panel of Gray Granite cardstock with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder and adhering it to the Pretty Peacock card base with Tear & Tape.  Next, I tied some Gray Granite Texture Weave Ribbon around the card base.

Sailing home peacock 3

Lovely Lighthouse—I stamped a Sailing Home lighthouse image in Pretty Peacock ink onto a 3" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White. I added the seagulls in Gray Granite next to the lighthouse before mounting the layer onto a 3-1/8" x 3-5/8" and popping it up with Dimensionals.  

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Sailing Home sentiment in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White, then die-cut it with the coordinating Smooth Sailing dies.  I love the cool embossed details that the die adds to the banner die-cut.  It's popped up with Dimensionals.

Introducing...The NEW 2019-2021 In Colors!

Hi Stamping Friends,
 
What's the first thing you look for when you get a NEW Annual Catalog in your hands?  For me, it's always the NEW In Colors!  It's always so exciting to see the five new colors that we'll be able to combine with our current color collections for fresh, new color combinations!  This year's new colors are soft, a little muted, and completely amazing!  
 
Today, I'm introducing you to the brand NEW 2019-2021 In Colors with some color comparisons.  This morning, I did a Facebook LIVE introducing the colors and creating one cool card in each of the new colors!  Each of the cards also gives you a little sneak peek of some new stamp sets and other catalog items that are headed our way beginning with the release of the NEW catalog on June 4!  If you missed my Facebook LIVE, you can check it out here:

Introducing...The NEW 2019-2021 In Colors!

Five brand new trendy colors will premiere in the NEW 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalog, available on June 4.  You'll find a complete collection of products in these new colors, including cardstock, ink, refills, markers, Designer Series Paper, ribbon and embellishments. And, we'll even have four of the colors represented in Stampin' Blends Markers!  

Let's take a closer look at each of the colors and see how they compare with current and past colors that are similar!  

Purple Posy comparisons
Purple Posy—I'm always excited to have another purple join our color lineup!  Purple Posy is a very light pastel shade that will beautifully complement the purples we already have.  We have not had any purple quite like it!  It's super soft, like Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink, so I'm looking forward to pairing it with those colors. Old colors like Pale Plum, Wisteria Wonder and Almost Amethyst are very different, so this unique color will have lots of room to shine!

Purple Posy Ink Availability—When Purple Posy was released as part of the demo pre-order, it was discovered that the ink pad and refill ink were having some foaming issues. Stampin' Up! pulled the defective products and has made the ink pad and refill unavailable while they work on the issue.  These inks will not be available when the catalog is released, but we'll have the Purple Posy Stampin' Write Marker and Stampin' Blends Marker to tide us over until the inks become available again. It will likely be a couple months from now.

Pretty Peacock comparisons

Pretty Peacock—Teals and purples are my favorite, so I welcome the rich Pretty Peacock color with open arms!  I've been missing Island Indigo since it retired and this color, while a little more green, will help me get over my sadness!  The current Shaded Spruce and soon-to-retire Tranquil Tide are both a little more green than this color.  It's actually kind of a mix of Tranquil Tide and Not Quite Navy...truly a lovely shade!  It will be the perfect color to use with the NEW Royal Peacock Bundle. This color will be very versatile for nature scenes with water and trees. I think it will be a color that goes with a lot of different colors, almost like a neutral...similar to Night of Navy & Mossy Meadow.  It will look amazing with other blues & greens, earthy colors and maybe even a pop of red!  Can't wait to play with color combinations for this one!

Seaside Spray comparisons

Seaside Spray—Oooh...I immediately thought Pretty Peacock would be my favorite, but this color is very intriguing!  I love this grayed blue!  It reminds me of a stormy sky and it will be definitely add a refreshing twist to Balmy Blue or Pool Party color combinations.  Like Purple Posy, I couldn't find any Stampin' Up! color that was very similar. It's much lighter than Bordering Blue, which was the only other gray blue color.  This is the color that's featured on the front of the NEW Annual Catalog, so I can see that it looks amazing with Night of Navy, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake. I'm curious about what other colors you would pair with this cool new blue.

Terracotta Tile comparisons

Terracotta Tile—This color is exactly what you think of when you think of terracotta pots!  It's a beautiful, rich red-orange that will add a warm, earthy tone to stamped projects.  Calypso Coral is a similar current color that has a little less brown to it.  Watermelon Wonder is has a little more red and old Dusty Durango (anyone remember that one?) is like a darker version of Terracotta Tile. I couldn't find retired Really Rust or Ruby Red in my stack of retired papers, but it would be interesting to see their comparisons. I can see this color used successfully with most of the neutrals, greens like Old Olive and Mossy Meadow and blues like Seaside Spray and Night of Navy. 

Rococo Rose comparisons

Rococo Rose—With all of the floral images that Stampin' Up! carries, I love having another gorgeous flower color!  This dusty rose shade is soft and vintage!  Once again, we haven't really had a color quite like it. It's a darker, more muted color than either the current Flirty Flamingo or retired Regal Rose.  I thought Primrose Petals might be similar, but it's much lighter. I can see this elegant shade combined with earthy browns like Soft Suede and Early Espresso, darker greens like Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, softer colors like Petal Pink and So Saffron and darker colors like Blackberry Bliss and Merry Merlot.
