Good news if you’ve been waiting for Watercolor Wishes

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wishes Card KitI’ve got good news if you’re one of those that tried to order the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit when the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog started on June 2. Stampin’ Up! was only saying it would be available in July. We finally have a date for July.

You’ll be able to order the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit that includes the exclusive Watercolor Wishes Stamp Set on July 1 in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com!

The card kit includes 20 different cards that are ready for you to add the greeting and be put together in three different sizes. The sizes are 4″ x 4″ , 3-1/2″ x 5″ and 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wishes Cards

Long after you’ve made and mailed off the cards (the 4″ x 4″ are not mailable as is), you’ll still have the stamp set to use again and again. I can’t yet link you to the stamp set images yet, but you can see them on page 80 of your 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. What I can tell you is that many of my customers have pointed the stamp set out to me. It’s a mix of script and print. The script font is nice, easy to read. That’s not true of all script fonts.

Do you have a 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog so you can turn to page 80 to see the Watercolor Wishes Stamp Set? If not and are a customer of mine or would like to become one, send an email to [email protected] with your phone number to request a catalog. After a brief telephone conversation, I’ll happily mail you a new catalog and pay the shipping (over $10 value!) for free.

Please note that I can only mail catalogs to U.S. addresses. Also, please do not request a free catalog from me if you’re a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. My offer of a free catalog is reserved for my customers.

You want this for your clean and simple cards

Clean and simple card with Stampin' Up! You've Got This Stamp SetDo you like to make clean and simple cards? If so, when the base of your clean and simple card is white, you want to use the new Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper White Cardstock. The heavier weight cardstock can be used alone or for a sturdy base for added layers.

It just plain and simple looks good for your clean and simple cards.

The flower stamped across the bottom with Tip Top Taupe Classic Stampin’ Pad ink is from the also new Stampin’ Up! You’ve Got This Stamp Set. The “I’m here for you.” greeting was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad ink. Do you like the contrast of the black? Considered stamping it also in Tip Top Taupe but thought it allow the greeting to be where the eye went to first.

The greeting is flanked by the Perfect White Accents in three sizes. The two black ones? I colored them with a black Sharpie. Sharpie ink dries quite quickly. The Perfect White Accents are self-adhesive and a quick way to step up your handmade cards.

The supply list for my card is short. I would like to add that if you like  the new 2015-2017 In Colors, you’re best bet is to order the 2015-2017 In Color Cardstock & Pad Kit. You’ll pay for all five of the new In Color Ink Pads and get an assorted pack in coordinating cardstock for FREE!

Better clean and simple cards are only an order away. Order the Whisper White Thick Cardstock now in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com.

Throwback Thursday to a classic Father’s Day card idea

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes CardThe Stampin’ Up! Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set is a true classic with it’s well, lovely, trees. It’s the best-selling Stampin’ Up! stamp set. It was introduced in 2001. Because it’s so popular and owned by thousands of cardmakers, two years ago I used it to make a last-minute Father’s Day card.

It’s a great card to share with you for Throwback Thursday. Since then Gumball Green has retired. Last year I would have said to substitute Garden Green. But this year we have the new Cucumber Crush from the 2015-2017 In Colors that will make a better substitution.

You won’t have to make a substitution for the Happy Father’s Day from the almost as popular Stampin’ Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set.

Gorgeous Grunge and 2015-2017 In Colors Cards

2015-2017 In Colors with Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set www.stampingsmiles.comThis card made with Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set with the 2015-2017 In Colors is a remake of the handmade card I posted last year with the 2014-2016 In Colors.

Really happy I did this because I liked the individual colors but really didn’t think the 2015-2017 In Colors necessarily looked good together. This handstamped card shows that not to be true. It also revealed some nice combinations within the group – Delightful Dijon/Cucumber Crush/Mint Macaron, Cucumber Crush/Mint Macaron/Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder/Tip Top Taupe/Mint Macaron, for example.

Which cardbase is your favorite? Is it Cucumber Crush as used with the first card?

Or is it Tip Top Taupe?

How would you like to get a free assorted pack of 2015-2017 In Color Cardstock? That’s exactly what happens when you order the 2015-2017 In Color Cardstock & Pad Kit! The kit includes all five of the 2015-2017 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pads with a bonus assorted 8-1/2″ x 11″ package of coordinating In Color cardstock. The Cardstock & Pad Kit is, by far, the most popular way Stampin’ Up! customers purchase the new In Colors.

If you like all five of the new In Colors, the cardstock and pad kit is a no-brainer. Right now think you only like four? You’ll still have money by purchasing the kit. Think you like only three? I would encourage you to purchase the cardstock and pad kit because you’re going to see all five of the new In Colors used with other colors and wish you had.

The splatters of ink from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set are what make this card with the 2015-2017 In Colors. Sure, the Elegant Butterfly Punch is pretty, but it’s the ink splatter that makes this card.

You’ll be wild about the Wild About Flowers Stamp Set too!

Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers Card www.stampingsmiles.comIf you like flowers, you’re going to go wild for the new Stampin’ Up! Wild About Flowers Stamp Set! Look at how pretty my simple card is with those gorgeous two-step flowers.

If two-step is a new term for you, it just means it takes two steps (sometimes more) to finish stamping an image. I first stamped the stems with Wild Wasabi Classic Stampin’ Pad ink. The flowers are a separate stamp. Next the flowers were inked with Wisteria Wonder ink and then stamped on top of the stems.

Two-step stamps are awesome. It makes it so easy to have one color for the stems and another for the flowers. You could use your Many Marvelous Markers if it were one stamp, but this is quicker. And because Wild About Flowers is a photopolymer (clear rubber) stamp set, it was so doggone easy to line up. No Stamp-a-ma-jig (stamp positioner) required. :)

Look what I did. You can see much better from this angle. I stamped the flowers on a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock, trimmed with my Paper Snips (love those little scissors) and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. That is an easy “wow”.

Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers Card www.stampingsmiles.com

And how gorgeous are those embossed butterflies?! You’re going to be even more wild about the Fluttering Embossing Folder when you read this: the embossing folder is 6″ x 6″! That means you can have embossed butterflies flying in the right direction for your portrait (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) and landscape (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″)! Or any card up to 6″ x 6″.  That had me so excited that I wanted to kiss it or the genius who thought it up.

 

Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers Card www.stampingsmiles.com

Played with one of my new stamp sets from the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog and embossing folder, next was a new accessory. That was the White Perfect Accents. I’ll admit when I first saw them in the new catalog, I thought they were nice but wasn’t going crazy like I did when the Candy Dots were introduced. They’re all . . . white. That was until I used the white, self-adhesive gems on this handmade greeting card. They added an elegant touch. The finishing touch to step it up just a bit.
