Ride a Bike Framed Art in 20 Minutes



Bike Ride Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

I heard a weather man refer to this as the longest winter ever.  It was 70 plus for about 3 day last week and...believe it or not, it's snowing today.  Seriously, I'm a fan of snow, but certainly not in April.  The daffodils are in full bloom and the lilacs are leafing out.  Bring on the spring weather.  So, even though it snowed a tiny bit today, I chose to ignore it and stamped this Spring Framed Art with the Bike Ride Stamp set and Build a Bike Framelits.  


Bike Ride Stampin' Up!

This project was pretty straight forward.  I stamped my bike pieces and flowers.  Then, cut all the pieces with the Build a Bike Framelits dies.  The final piece of the puzzle is the "Life is a beautiful thing" sentiment from the Colorful Season Stamp Set.  I did pop up my pieces with stampin' dimensionals to give my project a bit of dimension.  So you could say that I stamped my framed art.  It was an easy peasy project that I was able to complete in 20 minutes or so.

You can currently get both the Bike Ride Stamp Set and the Build a Bike Framelit dies in a bundle and save 10%, but the bundle price will go away when the 2018 Annual Catalog starts.

Color Challenge

This week's Color Challenge comes from Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge.  The colors are Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Soft Sky. I claim artistic license and I used a few close substitutes and use Rich Razzleberry, Mossy Meadow and Pool Party.  The dessert this week is to add a butterfly and lucky for me the Build a Bike dies includes an adorable butterfly die.

If the weather's got you down, try stamping a spring masterpiece!

Stampin' Up! Color Revamp & New Ink Pads



Stampin' Up! Retiring Colors

Hello Friends,

You may have heard by now the Stampin' Up! is doing a big Color Revamp this year along with some ink pad changes.  It's super exciting and I fully intended to make a video for you detailing the changes, but life got in the way.  I've been running back and forth to the hospital all week.  Our son who has epilepsy had a monitored medicine change this week.  Because of time constraints, I decided to do a detailed pictured explanation.  Most of my pictures will be in rainbow order.  Be sure to keep scrolling.  There's lots of pictures and the pads are last.

The most immediate thing that you need to know is the Retiring Colors.  These colors will be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, so get your favorites before they are gone.

Pictured left to right: Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach, Always Artichoke, Wild Wasabi, Emerald Envy, Island Indigo, Dapper Denim, Marina Mist, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder, Sweet Sugar Plum and Chocolate Chip.

This list includes the In Colors scheduled to retire this year and 13 Core Colors.  On a side note, Flirty Flamingo retired as an In Color, but is back as a Core Color.

Stampin' Up! Ink

I can't say enough about the new Ink Pad design.  They rock!  It was time for Stampin' Up! to update the mold and they knocked it out of the park.  Inks are still stored upside down for juicier pads, but you can open them with a push of you thumb.  They open much like a makeup compact.  They're also a snugger fit to keep the air out.  Just look at the comparison of 5 stacked side by side!  Speaking of stacking, the new pads are designed to stack.


Stampin' Up! Ink

The size is ever so slightly different.  The old and the new style are the same width, but the newer pads are a skosh smaller.  The pads will fit in both the retiring  ink caddy as well as the Stamp-n-Storage Ink Storage.  


Stampin' Up! Ink

And that's not all, there's more.  Stampin' Up! has added a defoamer to cut down on bubbling and to give you a more even coating of ink on your stamp for a smoother more solid look.  And if that's not enough, Stampin' Up! has designed a smaller label to insert inside your pad, so that you can easily identify your pads when there are multiples on your work surface.

Note:  We will no longer carry Archival inks, so the old Basic Gray Ink Refill should not be used on the new Classic Ink Basic Gray.  For Black Inks there are 2 options-Jet Black Stazon and Tuxedo Black Momentos Inks.  Use Stazon for watercoloring and use Momento for coloring with Blender Pens.

 

Clarifications on ReInkers-You can use old reinkers on your new pads with the exception of archival inks, but you will loose the defoamer advantage.   You can also use new reinker on your old pads and gain the defoamer advantage.
