Stampin' Addicts New In-Color Blog Hop Starring Tangelo Twist



This is the Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop for the New Stampin' Up! In-Colors for 14 -16.  If you  are going in order you just came from Holly and Mossy Meadow.  To see the Thread about this Stampin' Addicts Blog Spot Click Here.  You will be heading to Debra next with Blackberry Bliss

I love some of the new colors and really love the color I will be showing you.  Tangelo Twist, don't you just imagine a nice ice cream cone piled high with Tangelo Twist.

Other New In Colors are - Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, and Mossy Meadow.

It usually is hard to just use one color in stamping but I also found a great set that works wonders with one color and that is Work of Art (wood 134111, clear 134114).

You can start ordering the new In Colors and Stamp Sets starting Monday June 2 at Noon.


First one I did was a simple stamp off card.  Now I have to do 20 Thank You Cards like this for my daughters Graduation Thank Yous.  She really loved them.  They are simple and just look great.


Some of you know that we are trying to sell our house so I make Thank You cards for everyone that walks through so I wanted to use the color for this weeks Thank yous.  they are just 3 x 3 cards but so cute.  Here is a closer look at one.

Yup did the Stamp Off Technique again with some of these. They are just to cute.

Then I just had to have something to put it in so I had to make a box.


I told you I love this color and this New Set.


On You  go.


Happy Stamping Mary

Tips & Techniques Tuesday - May 27, 2014 - Baby Wipe Swipe

Today we will be doing the Baby Wipe Swipe Technique.  I love this simple and beautiful technique.

All you need is photo paper or glossy card stock, baby/diaper wipes and re-inkers and you can make some great back grounds.


It is sometimes messy but you always  get a great outcome.  You can use one baby wipe for a lot of backgrounds and each one is different.

Here is the video and I hope you enjoy it.


Don't Forget

Get excited! We are currently offering a 25%-50% discount on many of the retiring products, not including those products that are no longer available. This will be live on May 22, but you have to act fast, as this special offer is only available until June 4, 2014. If you missed out on a product the first time, this is your last chance to get it before it's gone for good!

Grandma's Rocking Chair - May 25, 2014 - Fancy Foil Designer Vellum

Grandma's Rocking Chair - Review of Fancy Foil Designer Vellum

I really love this paper or vellum.  It comes in 2 colors silver and gold.


Three designs Strips, Polka Dots and Hearts.


Here is what Stampin' Up! has to say about the Silver Foil Vellum

Price: $10.95
How did we make vellum sheets even better? We embossed them with gold foil designs!

■ 9 sheets: 3 ea. of 3 single-sided designs
■ 12" x 12"

■ Acid free, lignin free

The only problem I see is how you attach it.  You see above I attached it by SNAIL.  It showed through.  So if you use SNAIL or glue dots make sure that you put it under the gold or silver so it does not show through.  You can use special Vellum tape but I find you can still see it. So I try to hide it. 

I think it looks really elegant and so classy.

It is in the new Catalog on Page 193 so Make sure you get a few packages of it.  

Happy Stamping

Some of my weekly creations and a reminder about the Great Retirement Sale

Didn't want you to miss out on this great sale.  Some things are up to 50% off.  Click here to see all the great deals.

I also wanted to share what I have been working on the last few days.


One of the first sets you should get is called Work of Art Page 165 (Wood 134111, Clear 134114).  I am showing off the new In-Colors.  Colors aren't the best as my light box had a burned out blurb and I can't find a clear white one.  I do love the new colors and I do love this set.




I was also working on my graduation cards.  This is a pop up card, just like the card in a box but you can put a gift card in the box.  This high schools colors were gold and black, so used the gold foil paper and black embossing, or basic black card stock and gold encore ink.
