SUO Challenges & News!

Hello peeps! We made it through Monday again! I had card class last night and the child tagged along. Father daughter bonding is so much fun! It was a very nice day here again today so the top was down in the car, always enjoyed on my drive home from work! Oh, I have some news for you today! I have been asked to join the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenges Design Team! The talented group of designers is headed up by Robin and I’m so happy to give you my first card for the group. This time around the challenge is to use butterflies. My mother, being a huge fan of butterflies (she even has a tattoo of one!) made this an easy one! So here is my butterfly card.

The base of the card is Raspberry Ripple. I used the World Treasures Stamp Set for all of the images and greeting on the card. The flowers are stamped in Pacific Point and have Basic Jewels Rhinestones in their centers. I used the Elegant Butterfly Punch to create a negative in the strip of Raspberry Ripple and some International Bazaar Designer Series Paper punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch fill it in with two more Rhinestones on the butterfly. Three Pacific Point butterflies cut out with the Beautiful Wings Sizzlit are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals next to it and the greeting is cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. I’m loving the colors together and my mom is sure to love the butterflies! Thank you so much for stopping by to see my first card for the Design Team over at SUO Challenges. Head on over to the blog and see the other designers projects and upload one of your own. Have a great day! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! released a new Photopolymer Stamp Set called Birthday Bombs Away! There are some great greeting and they will work well for any type of card. You can see them below or click here for a PDF of the flyer.

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set! It’s called Designer Typeset! The great thing about Photopolymer Stamps is that they are completely clear so you can see exactly where you are going to stamp. They work amazingly with our new Firm Foam Stampin’ Pads for great ink coverage. You are going to love them! This is a limited release so make sure you get one before it’s gone!

Stampin’ Up! has a sneak peek for you from the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog and the best part is you can get it right now!
