WE MUST CELEBRATE meets LOVELY AS A TREE

04.21.18 We must.friendsAs we haven’t done a “Z” card in awhile, I thought is was time for this simple fold technique.  The 8 1/2 X 11 Daffodil Delight cs is cut lengthwise at 4 1/4” and scored at 5 1/2” and 2 3/4”.  The score at 4 1/4” is folded forward and the score at 2 3/4 is folded back forming the “Z” fold. Retired Floral Boutique DSP is adhered to the front and  back of the smaller “Z”  folds.

For this Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight color scheme, a white rectangle is layered onto a Daffodil Delight stitched rectangle.  The multiple tree stamp from “Lovely as a Tree” is stamped twice on the white layer. 2-3 mushrooms are colored and adhered to the background.

04.21.18 We must.birthdayThe rabbit, raccoon and bear are colored with Stampin’ Blends and adhered to the white rectangle layer with Stampin Dimensionals. The animal festooned layer is then adhered securely to a portion of the front “Z”.  The top sample has the sentiment “friends fur-ever” stamped on the message layer.  The second sample uses a happy birthday sentiment

04.21.18 We must.birthday msgWhen the “Z” is pulled back, we see the message layer as well as a small continuation of the card front.  Wink of Stella adds some glimmer to the trees and animals.  Wink of Stella must be applied carefully to inked surfaces such as the stamped trees we see here as it will pick up the ink and smear the color.  This is not an issue, however, with Stampin” Blends.  

I did something “daring” with my “We Must Celebrate” stamp set – I cut the 4 animals apart.  I really wanted to use them singly so I grabbed my snips and just did it.  As there are no dies for this set, I stamped about 20 of each on Whisper White cs and my Brother Scan n’ Cut proceeded to cut them out.  For you, this means your animals and mushrooms are cut and ready to be used.  Much easier than fussy cutting!

Did you know “Lovely as a Tree” is the oldest Stampin’Up set.  We hold our breath every year wondering if it will retire.  I broke down and bought a new “Lovely as a Tree” set this year.  My old set was wood and I really wanted something easier to use.

Finally, Here is everything you wanted to know about the Color Revamp that is taking place.

THE COLORS ARE EVOLVING!

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When we see changes happening, we review our color spectrum to ensure that we remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!

In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, we decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover.

With this revamp, you’ll have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting. Read on for more information!

THE DETAILS

There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.

In order to keep our color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, we moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. We’ve also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!

Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. You can refer to the old and new color charts in the 2018-2019 catalog. These changes were based on needing to maintain color balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection.

IN COLORS

There are no changes to the In Color program. Every two years we will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.

We also have previous In Colors that are returning and joining our core colors:

  • Mossy Meadow
  • Poppy Parade
  • Flirty Flamingo
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Mint Macaron
  • Blackberry Bliss

NEW CLASSIC STAMPIN’ PADS

In addition to new colors, we also redesigned our ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and we’ve improved the formula of the ink, as well! We think you will love these changes and you can learn more here.

HOW THESE CHANGES WORK FOR YOU

Remaining on trend and up-to-date with new products is one of the most important parts of a business and this color revamp does just that. In addition to the business aspect, this is exciting for stampers on a personal level! For people who love to create, a bigger variety of products and fresh, vibrant colors allow you to stretch your creativity and engage your senses in pushing your crafting limits.

RETIRING COLORS PRODUCT RESOURCE

Whenever colors are retired, there is always some confusion about the status of various products in those colors. We wanted to be sure that our customers have a chance to buy retiring ink pads and refills before they are gone. We have worked with our vendors to ensure that we have a period of guaranteed stock before the retirement date. This means that even if an ink pad/refill goes on backorder during that guaranteed time, those orders will be fulfilled.

However, after that guarantee date has passed, those products in retiring colors are available while supplies last. Please see the chart below that details this. It also shows how other products with retiring colors will be handled.
