Step it Up Sunday: Stampin’Up! Colorful Season

On yesterday’s Sneak Peek Saturday I showcased the adorable new Adirondack Chair from the Colorful Season bundle in the new Stampin’Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. That chair just makes me so happy! You can see the CAS(clean and simple) versions HERE

I stepped up that chair for today’s post by adding some of the other elements from the bundle. This bundle needs to be top of your wish list, it is just so much fun to play with and super versatile!

Stampin'Up! Colorful Season bundle, sneak peek 2017-2018 Stampin'Up! Catalog, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, spring, cherry blossoms, just breathe, technique, clean and simple

Details:

  • In keeping with a simple and serene image, I kept my cardstock to Thick Whisper White and our regular Whisper White. The Thick Whisper creates that most divine card base and measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. the top layer of Whisper White is 5 x 3 3/4″
  • I dabbed on a little color by taking a Baby Wipe right to my ink pad and then lightly tapping it on the cardstock. Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi offer a light wash of color to ground my chair.
  • The chair is created using the NEW Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Whisper White Cardstock and the Big Shot and Magnetic Platform. Did you know that when you purchase a Big Shot in my online store I gift you theMagnetic Platform?! (that is a $40 value!!)
  • For this card, I also added the branch and flower blossoms…..all from the Colorful Seasons bundle. The branch is cropped from Crumb Cake Cardstock and the flowers show off one of our NEW In Colors: Berry Burst. It is such a beautiful color, you will fall in love with it!!

  • I had a little package to mail out along with this card and our NEW Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper worked perfectly! You get 40 sheets, 4 each of 2 double sided designs in all 5 of the NEW 2017-2019 In Colors. Isn’t it so pretty?!
  • I wrapped our new Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon around it…..BTW if you are a ribbon lover you are going to be so excited with this new catalog!! There are 71 Ribbons to choose from WOW #ribbonloversunite
  • And isn’t that sentiment just dishy? Also from the Colorful Seasons bundle…..I told you it was good my friends!

Sneak Peek Saturday: Stampin’Up! Colorful Seasons

Stampin'Up! sneak peek saturday, eastern palace suite, stampin'up! catalog 2017-2018 #lisapretto #inkbigacademystamps

I know it is super mean to share products from the 2017-2018 Stampin’Up! Catalog you can’t buy yet, but they are way too good to keep all to myself! So welcome to Sneak Peek Saturday…..a little glimpse at some of the fun new products coming your way!

I am beyond in love with the Colorful Seasons bundle! And I would have shelled out all my money just to get my hands on this  Adirondack Chair #bestillmyheart

Stampin'Up! Colorful Seasons bundle, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, sneak peek, 2017-2018 Stampin'Up! Annual Catalog

  • This first card features our Thick Whisper White Cardstock for a base. I cut it 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″. I LOVE this cardstock for a card base as it is thick and so rich feeling.
  • The top layer is our Whisper White Cardstock and meaasures5 x 3 3/4″. For simple cards I like this size as it creates a nice big border which makes the card more interesting.
  • Pacific Point makes for such relaxing Adirondack chairs, they sure make you want to sit and stay a while. The Colorful Season bundle offers up leaves, branches, flowers, beach chairs and more….trust me, this belongs at the top of your “must have list”
  • The Big Shot and Magnetic Platform make this Thinlit a dream to work with. Did you know that when you purchase a Big Shot from me I gift you a Magnetic Platform for FREE (that is a $40 value!!)
  • The sentiment is also from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.
  • The “ground” is created by a Faux Watercolor technique using baby wipes. A few dabs onto the ink pad and then the paper creates a dreamy foundation for the chairs.

This second card is simplicity at it’s finest!

A perfect Red Adirondack Chair and a sweet sentiment in Real Red, paired with crisp Whisper white and Daffodil Delight

5 Way Friday: A Whole Different Look for the Window Shopping bundle

Join us for a Stampin'Up! 5 Way Friday: inspiration for all your papercrafting

 

Today’s 5 Way Friday features the Window Shopping bundle, with ideas from the InkBig Design Team.

Does that sound like a repeat? It is!!

We showcased this awesome bundle last week and my Design Team loved it so much that they decided to add some completely new looks for you this week

While both the stamp set and framelits are included in the 2017-2018 Stampin’Up! Annual Catalog they will no longer be part of a bundle, which means there will no longer be a 10% savings when purchased together. Be sure to purchase this bundle NOW to save some money….or if you are like me it is a good excuse to purchase additional items because “look at how much I saved ;)”

If this hasn’t been on your must buy list, that is about to change!

Stampin'Up! Window Box Framelits, sneak peek 2017-2018 Stampin'Up! Catalog, Lemon lime twist, incolors, happy birthday, gift box

I love the fresh and graphic look of this birthday card. Our new InColor LEMON LIME TWIST is going to be hot, hot, hot!!

Stampin'Up! Window Box Framelits, sneak peek 2017-2018 Stampin'Up! Catalog, happy birthday,

Look at all the details on this card, how festive and fabulous! Those cheery BALLOON HONEYCOMB EMBELLISHMENTS just say “celebrate” and did you see the sneak peek of our PACIFIC POINT 1/4″ STITCHED EDGE RIBBON? I’m not going to give away all the secrets, but the ribbon in the 2017-2018 Stampin’Up! Catalog is super awesome!!

Stampin'Up! Window Box Framelits, sneak peek 2017-2018 Stampin'Up! Catalog, Lemon lime twist, incolors, happy birthday, gift box

This sweet box made with the Window Box Thinlits and highlights a NEW SUITE from the Stampin’Up! 2017-2018, Birthday Memories. The really innovative thing is that the Framelits work not only with the stamp set, but also with the  Designer Series Paper. so you can crop out perfectly colored, “all the work done for you” images, lickety split!

See that Pacific Point ribbon again?! It also comes in Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry. I can totally see making one of these cards in each color and packaging them together  for a great gift item!

Our last project highlights another one of the NEW 2017-2018 In colors: Berry Burst. What a super yummy color! The paper used here is a sneak peek of the Color Theory Paper Pack, a 6 x6 stack of 48 sheets with hip, graphic patterns.
