Meet the 2019-2021 Stampin’ Up!® In Colors

Meet the 2019-2021 Stampin’ Up!® In Colors

I am in love with the new 2019-2021 Stampin’ Up!® In Colors. As sad as I am to see Lemon Lime Twist retire, I do like the new ones.

Here’s a peek at the new colors and some of the current colors in the same color “families.”

Stampin' Up!, 2019-2021 In Colors, Terracotta Tile

This is Terracotta Tile. You may know the Pantone Color of the Year is Living Coral. Terracotta Tile is very close to that. You can see in the photo that it’s very close to Calypso Coral, but not quite as bright. I added Petal Pink into the mix, because, even though it’s a “pink,” there are enough common undertones between the two colors that they will pair very nicely together. I’m going to love the Terracotta Tile/Cajun Craze, Petal Pink combination.

Stampin' Up!, 2019-2021 In Colors, Pretty Peacock

This is Pretty Peacock. Although it is very close to the retiring Tranquil Tide, you can see it has a lot more blue in it. You can especially see that when you compare it with a green like Garden Green or Call Me Clover; the blue really stands out.

Most of the colors I paired it with here are blues, and I love Pretty Peacock with Pool Party and Coastal Cabana. It’s also beautiful with Mint Macaron.

Stampin' Up!, 2019-2021 In Colors, Rococo Rose

Rococo Rose is a lovely vintage pink. Even though it won’t share a catalog with the retiring Powder Pink, they are lovely together. If you save retired colors, hang on to Powder Pink! I love the way you can get a totally different look by pairing it with Petal Pink or Blushing Bride. Rococo Rose definitely fills a pink spot that we didn’t have.

Stampin' Up!, 2019-2021 In Colors, Seaside Spray

Here is Seaside Spray. It’s more of a gray-blue, as you can see when it’s next to Balmy Blue. It’s going to be lovely with Blueberry Bushel and Night of Navy. It’s also nice with Smoky Slate and Basic Gray, especially for masculine cards, or with the new Come Sail Away suite.

Stampin' Up!, 2019-2021 In Colors, Purple Posy

Finally, we have Purple Posy. Again, this fills a hole in our purples! It’s beautiful with Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather for a nice spring or summer card. But it also works well with Rich Razzleberry or Blackberry Bliss (top left) for fall and winter cards.

These colors are going to be fun to work with in the next two years. They’ll be available to purchase beginning June 4. Remember, if you’re loving the 2017-2019 In Colors (Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Tranquil Tide) be sure to order them now before they’re gone. You can see all the products that will be retiring June 4 (or until supplies are depleted) as well as the updated Clearance Rack in my online store.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

A Good Man

A Good Man

When I saw the Stampin’ Up!® 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, I knew I wanted the “A Good Man” Stamp Set. The images are so sweet. There’s a dad holding his little girl (and that reminds me of Wesley & Amelia) and a dad with a little boy on his shoulders (which reminds me of Mike & Jon or Wes). And then there was this.

A Good Man, Stampin' Up!, Waterfront

This is Mike on vacation (except for the hat; Mike wears a baseball hat). This is his idea of relaxation, and I can’t wait until we hit the beach again.

To create this card, I stamped the water image from the Waterfront Stamp Set multiple times in Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, and Bermuda Bay on Whisper White Cardstock. It’s a little too “stripe-y” for me, so I’m going to work on the water a bit. I used Balmy Blue Classic Ink to add a little sky. Then, finally, I added the birds in Basic Gray and the Sun in Pineapple Punch Classic Ink. All of those stamps are from the Waterfront Stamp Set except the birds. I happened to have another new stamp set, Sailing Home, on my table while I was creating this card, and the birds came from that set.

For the guy – I stamped the image on Whisper White Cardstock with Versamark Ink, then embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, and Ivory Stampin’ Blends to color the image, then fussy cut it with Paper Snips. Then I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White in Bermuda Bay.

I used a Tic Tac Toe Challenge to create this card. Here’s the board.

I chose the bottom left to top right diagonal, but I also added water, summer, and embellishment. For the embellishment, I added some Heart Epoxy Droplets. You know how you take a picture at the pool or at the beach and little drops of water get on the camera/cell phone lens? That’s what I wanted to replicate. I love the epoxy droplets, because they’re so subtle, but then you can color them with Stampin’ Blends and they aren’t so subtle! They are very versatile, and I’m happy to see that they’re in the new catalog!

This card is dedicated to all the good men in my life – my absolutely wonderful husband, my amazing dad, my incredible sons, my older brother (who picked on me unmercifully in our childhood, but was still one of my first heroes and a very good man), my younger brother who passed away 13 years ago but always thought I was perfect and loved me unconditionally, and left a huge hole in my heart when he died, nephews and cousins that I’m so proud of, uncles who have always “been there” when Dad, Mike or the boys couldn’t, and so many friends.

Today, though, this card is perfect for Mike. I played the piano for the Easter service at my parents’ church this morning, so while I was gone, Mike cooked everything for dinner. He did an amazing job and everything was delicious. (Disclaimer: My mom cooked green beans and baked a coconut cake, and I set the table and poured water. Mike did everything else.) He’s much better at cooking than I am. So he deserves to relax!

One Sheet Wonder Stamp Off

One Sheet Wonder Stamp Off

Happy Friday, Stamping Friends! This has been a crazy week catching up on business, housework (well, that didn’t really happen), and playing working with new products from the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. Truth be told, I spend more time working with new products, but I did have a lot of business related things to catch up on.

Today, though, is a new Stamp Off! Challenge with Susan, Jackie, and me. This week, we have a One Sheet Wonder challenge from Susan.

This is the cutting diagram.

And here are the projects I made with the pieces.

Stampin' Up!, Needle & Thread, Butterfly Gala

Obviously I used one of the pieces on a couple of the projects (the notebook and the pizza box) since I only have four projects and there are five pieces of cut Designer Series Paper (DSP). But this was so much fun! I knew it would be a challenge for me. Cutting DSP is really hard, especially the first cut, so I made these several months ago. You would think that I would have created the blog post right after I made the projects while they were fresh in my mind, wouldn’t you? Well, that would have been the smart thing, but, well…It’s 10 p.m. Thursday night and the blog post is due at 6 a.m. tomorrow. Jackie and Susan have had their posts scheduled for months, I know. I keep our team balanced.

I used the Needlepoint Nook DSP and Needle & Thread Stamp Set (bundled, of course) along with the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and Butterfly Duet Punch (again bundled) for this challenge. Both of these bundles are in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019 Occasions Catalog. The Needle & Thread Stamp Set and Needlepoint Elements Dies will be retiring, but the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and Butterfly Duet Punch are carrying over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. (The bundle price, however, will be ending, so if you want to save 10%, order the bundle by June 3.)

Here are the individual projects.

Stampin' Up!, Daisy Delight, Needlepoint Nook
I added the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Daisy Punch for this card. I love how the Highland Heather Daisy (stamped in Gorgeous Grape) pops against the Petal Pink card base. Remember that not only are the Needle & Thread Stamp Set, Needlepoint Elements Dies, and Needlepoint Nook DSP retiring, but so is everything Berry Burst. If you love it, be sure to order it soon before it runs out. This card uses the 2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the DSP.

Stampin' Up!, Needlepoint Nook, Butterfly Gala

Don’t you love the little Pizza Boxes? I covered the box with the 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ piece of the Needlepoint Nook DSP, then added a Pearlized Doily and punched butterflies. Good news – the Pizza Boxes, Pearlized Doilies, and Gingham Gala Self-adhesive Sequins are all carrying over to the new catalog.

Stampin' Up!, Needlepoint Nook, Needle & Thread

This is a little note card in Highland Heather using the 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ strip of the Needlepoint Nook DSP and some of the stamped and die-cut flowers and leaves from the Needle & Thread Bundle. I trimmed the DSP a little since the card is 3-1/2″ x 5″.

Stampin' Up!, Butterfly Duet, Needle & Thread

This little notebook uses the 3/4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of DSP for the top. It fit perfectly! I used the final piece of 2-3/4″ x 2-1/2″ DSP to punch the butterflies on the Pizza Box and Notebook.

The take-away from this post is – stop hoarding your DSP! If you love it, cut it up and use it on projects. It’s too beautiful to just sit in your craft room for a year. Show it some love! (That little pep talk was for me. I still have some DSP that’s about to retire. So sad!)

Now, please check out what Jackie and Susan have done with this challenge. I cannot wait to see what paper they used and what they’ve made.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

Sailing Home

Sailing Home

Hi, Stamping friends! My Product Purchase Premiere (PPP) order from Stampin’ Up!® arrived yesterday, and I’ve been having a blast playing with the new products! Demonstrators who attend a Stampin’ Up!® OnStage event have the opportunity to pre-preorder products from the upcoming Stampin’ Up!® catalogs. In this case, it’s the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Other products will be available during the preorder period for all demonstrators in May.

I had a hard time choosing what I wanted to purchase for the PPP. Let me rephrase that. I had a hard time choosing what I didn’t want to purchase for the PPP, because I have a preorder budget. Seriously, I am loving all the new products. But my absolute favorite suite from the new catalog is the Come Sail Away Suite. (Disclaimer: This is my favorite suite today. I may have a new favorite tomorrow, and the next day, and the next…I really am in love with the new catalog!)

This suite is perfect for anyone, but it also incorporates water and the beach, so I’m all in for this one! I pre-preordered the entire suite of products that was offered for the PPP on this one. It was also used in one of the make & takes at OnStage, and I promised to show you the card when my order arrived.

Sailing Home, Stampin' Up!I love this card so much. First, it’s a note card, so it’s a fun size to send. There’s a piece of the Come Sail Away DSP on the front cover of the note card, then another piece over that. Having the different designs of DSP in coordinating but different colors adds so much interest to a card.

First, I stamped the lighthouse image in Night of Navy Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then I die-cut it with the Smooth Sailing Dies. I used the Smooth Sailing Dies to die-cut the wheel from Crumb Cake Cardstock as well. This die cuts and embosses the image! My die-cutting machine is new and pretty tight, but you may need a shim to get the embossing on your die-cut. Simply add a piece of card stock at the top of your sandwich and you should be ok.

I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy Classic Ink on Balmy Blue Cardstock, then die-cut with the Smooth Sailing Dies. And finally, I used an Aqua Painter and Balmy Blue Classic Ink to wash the sky on a piece of Watercolor Paper. When it was dry, I added a compass stamp in Crumb Cake in the background.

To finish the card, I layered the die-cut lighthouse and wheel to the Watercolor Paper layer, then added the sentiment layer to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The watercolor layer was added to the DSP, and then that was added to a larger layer of DSP over the front of the Note Card. The last embellishments were the anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets and the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine and a rope die-cut from Soft Suede Cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

(Please note that the product list will not include the PPP products – Sailing Home Stamp Set, Smooth Sailing Dies, Come Sail Away DSP, Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine, and Sail Away Trinkets.)

Needle & Thread

Needle & Thread

When I was little, my mom and grandmothers, most of my aunts, and some of my cousins all sewed. They tried to teach me to sew. First it was straight stitches across fabric, then hems. The first really usable item I made was a scarf I made in 4-H. Years later, I could sew fairly well, but I wasn’t a master like some of the others in my family. Zippers and button holes always threw me, and the first mistake that had to be picked out usually stopped all progress on whatever I was making.

Even though I wasn’t the best “seamstress,” I do like the Needlepoint Nook Suite in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019 Occasions Catalog.

Needle & Thread, Stampin' Up!, Needlepoint Nook

This card is super easy. I simply layered some Berry Burst and Whisper White Card stock with some Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (DSP), and added some Crushed Curry and Highland Heather butterflies from the Needle & Thread Stamp Set. The Tranquil Tide sentiment and die-cut are also from the Needlepoint Nook Suite.

Here are the measurements for the card:
Whisper White – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″ to form a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base; 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″; scrap large enough to die-cut sentiment
Berry Burst – 3-3/4″ x 5″, 2″ x 4-1/2″
DSP – 1-3/4″ x 4-1/4″

To make this card even easier, I didn’t tie the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon. I simply looped it under the sentiment.

Just a reminder, Tranquil Tide and Berry Burst, along with Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Fig, and Powder Pink are 2017-2019 In Colors. That means they’ll be retiring with our current Annual Catalog (June 3 or while supplies last – whichever comes first). So if you love any of those colors, or any products with those colors in them – DSP, ink, ink refills, card stock, ribbon, embellishments, you’d better order them now before they’re gone. The products used on the card today (except for Whisper White Cardstock and the Highland Heather and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Pads) are also retiring. You can see the entire retiring list here. Please note: Many of the stamps that look like they’re retiring really aren’t, so please contact me before you order any “retiring” stamp sets! All of the Wood-mount and Clear-mount rubber are being converted to Cling Rubber stamps, so while the style is retiring the stamps aren’t. And current bundles are also retiring, but the individual components might not be. (Bundled prices only last for one catalog.)

I think the combination of flowers, butterflies, and the sentiment make this a very cheery card. And since the DSP does most of the work, it was very quick to put together. My Product Purchase Premiere order came today with new products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, so I spent most of the day playing with some new stuff. Here’s a sneak peek of the new 2019-2021 In Colors.

Stampin' Up!, 2019-2021 In Colors

The colors are (top to bottom) Terracotta Tile, Seaside Spray, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, and Pretty Peacock. If you’re an “old timer” with Stampn’ Up!, the Purple Posy reminds me a little of our old Pale Plum or Almost Amethyst (depending on the card stock run; it got lighter over time). The Seaside Spray is a little like our old Bashful Blue. The Terracotta Tile and Pretty Peacock are gorgeous together, but since they were the two boldest colors, I separated them a bit for balance. And the Rococo Rose is a nice vintage pink (and it also works well with the Pretty Peacock, doesn’t it?). The Terracotta Tile is very close to the Pantone Color of the Year, so it’s right on trend! These colors will be in the new Annual Catalog, and you can order from it beginning June 4.

Fable Friends and Retiring Friends

Fable Friends and Retiring Friends

It’s April 16, and that means it’s time for the Stampin’ Up!® Retiring Products List. It’s a sad time for demonstrators, because we lose some of our favorite stamp sets and other products. Of course we can still use the sets for personal use, but we don’t want to use them on blogs. Why tempt you with products you can’t buy, right? But if you’re not a demonstrator, this is the perfect time to snatch up those stamp sets and products you’ve been waiting to buy. And if you’ve been waiting to order a bundle, get it now! Because while stamp sets, dies, and punches may return to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, bundled prices will not. Bundles are only available during the catalog sales period in which they first appear.

Here’s where you can see what’s retiring – stamp sets, bundles, and everything else. Now, before you panic about some of them, the Stampin’ Up!® team that prepared the retiring list forgot to add the “asterisks” for stamp sets that will be returning, but in the “Cling” configuration. Remember, all rubber sets from now on will be cling mount except for background stamps in the US. They will still be offered in wood-mount as well as cling-mount. Here are the retiring products.

Stampin' Up!, Retiring Products

Here’s a list of stamp sets that will be returning, but in cling-mount. (So if you saw them on the retiring list, they’re not really retiring.)

If you have any questions about retiring product, please feel free to contact me!

Now – here’s a returning set from the Occasions Catalog that I’ve been wanting since I first saw it. But there were others that I needed more, so I kept putting it off. I’m so glad this carried over and will be in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

Fable Friends, Stampin' Up!, Daisy DelightFable Friends is one of my favorite sets, even though I just got it. I know I’m going to be using it a lot in the coming year.

First, I stamped the squirrel image from the Fable Friends Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, then diecut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I’ve been reading that lots of people use Memento Ink to watercolor, and the Memento Ink Pad actually says you can watercolor with it after it dries. (I’m taking peoples’ word on this; the print is tiny and I can’t read it.) So after I heat set the ink with my Stampin’ Up!® Heat Tool, I scribbled on our Acrylic Blocks with Smoky Slate, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Markers. I picked up the ink with a Blender Pen and colored the image. If you don’t have all the markers and only want to buy one or two sets, you can use Granny Apple Green instead of Pear Pizzazz so you only need Neutrals and Brights Stampin’ Write Marker sets. I stamped some of the grass using an Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad. (If you use Granny Apple Green to color the leaves, use that to stamp the grass as well.) Layer the die-cut image to a slightly larger layer of a Pacific Point design of the Brights Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Stamp the large daisy image from the Delightful Daisy Stamp Set (which is carrying over!) two times on Daffodil Delight Cardstock using a Smoky Slate Classic Ink Pad. Punch with the Daisy Punch and adhere the two images together. Stamp the flower center using a Soft Suede Classic Stampin’ Pad and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock, then punch with the 1/2″ Circle Punch and adhere to the center of the daisy.

Stamp the Sentiment from the Fable Friends Stamp Set in Basic Gray Classic Ink on the top of a Daffodil Delight card base, then adhere the stamped image and daisy as shown.

I love this little squirrel. We have so many squirrels in our backyard, and although none wear sailor suits, they’re still really cute. They’re really the only rodents that I can watch without going “ewwwwwww!”

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy! Have a lovely day.

Stampin’ Up!® OnStage 2019 Make & Takes

Stampin’ Up!® Ontage 2019 Make & Takes

I had the opportunity to attend the Stampin’ Up!® OnStage event in Charlotte, NC, last weekend. So. Much. Fun! Mike & I left Thursday morning, had dinner with my friend Susan Horr and her wonderful husband Rob, then shopped a little on Friday before Susan & I attended CenterStage. CenterStage is an event for Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators who have earned the title Silver Elite and above. There’s dinner and training, and, at live events there’s also entertainment.

It was so much fun to see new catalog product and, of course, to receive the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. A perk of attending OnStage is that we get to preorder selected products a little earlier than anyone else. It’s called the Product Purchase Premiere (or PPP for short), and according to my order, I am in LOVE with the new catalog.

Here are the Make & Takes from the event.

Free as a Bird, Stampin' Up!This card uses the Bird Ballad Suite, with the Free as a Bird Stamp Set and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (DSP). Isn’t this paper beautiful? One side of each of the designs has something “bird-ish,” and the other side is a more neutral or geometric design, so it’s very versatile. Of course, the lovely Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim works perfectly with the designs. There’s also a set of Stitched Nested Labels Dies that coordinate with the Stamp Set, and when the catalog goes live for customers on June 4, you’ll be able to bundle the stamps and dies and save 10%. Other suite products include the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin (beautiful laser-cut card fronts, so when you add your cardstock under it, the card is any color you want), and the Bird Ballad Trinkets.

Floral Essence, Stampin' Up!This is another absolutely gorgeous pack of DSP called Perennial Essence. Honestly, Stampin’ Up!® hit it out of the park with DSP this year. The designs in this paper are so lovely. The designer for the Perennial Essence DSP actually hand painted the designs using ideas from an art gallery. These are beautiful enough to frame and hang in your home.

The card uses the Floral Essence Stamp Set and Perennial Flower Punch (again, you can bundle them and save 10% from June 4, 2019 – June 2, 2020). Other elements in the suite are Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock (Old Olive, Petal Pink, So Saffron), those fuzzy little Perennial Essence Floral Centers (so fun! These look so real, I almost started sneezing), and Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon. The twine on this card is from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack – a spool of linen ribbon with white edges and a spool of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.

Follow Your Art, Stampin' Up!This is the Follow Your Art Suite, and it’s going to be a big hit with paper crafters! Besides the It Starts with Art Stamp Set and Arts & Crafts Dies, there’s a Button Button Embossing Folder, Follow Your Art DSP, Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit, Follow Your Art Washi Tape (one design is the Stampin’ Up! logo. So cute!!), and mini Stampin’ Up! Shipping Boxes. And it won’t surprise you to know that you’ll be able to bundle stamps and dies to save 10%.

Sailing Home, Stampin' Up!This is what the last new catalog product Make & Take will look like when I make it. Since Stampin’ Up!® is “between die-cutting machines,” they didn’t ask for volunteers to bring theirs to the event. But this card calls for die-cuts! There was a simpler version we could create with just stamping, but I knew I’d be getting the entire Come Sale Away Suite, so I’ll post my card after my order comes tomorrow. Yes, I did pay a ton of extra money on shipping so I could get my order early. I love living on the east coast of the US until I have to wait 10 days for an order to arrive. My treat to myself is expedited shipping on preorders.

Elements in this nautical suite include the Sailing Home Stamp Set (and if you love the current High Tide set, you’ll be thrilled to know that it is also in the new catalog!), Smooth Sailing Dies (yes, you can bundle them with the stamp set and save money), Come Sail Away DSP, Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack, Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine, and the Sail Away Trinkets – little anchors that can be attached to ribbon or twine and ship wheels.

Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!This was an extra Make & Take. The May Paper Pumpkin Kit is called “Hugs from Shelli.” Stampin’ Up!® Co-founder and Board Chair, Shelli Gardner, partnered with the Paper Pumpkin designers to create this kit. You need to order a prepaid kit or subscribe to Paper Pumpkin by May 10 to receive the kit. If you’re outside the US, you’ll be able to order this kit as well! Go to stampinup.com and use the demonstrator finder feature to find a demonstrator in your country. He/she will be happy to help you order the kit!

This is one of the four card designs. It’s so quick and simple, but so beautiful, don’t you think? I had my twine perfectly rounded around the tag, but then it got all tangled up in the dimensionals I used to hold it in place, so it’s not as elegant as it was. What can I say? Sometimes I have adhesive issues.

You can learn more about this kit in this video.

So that’s all for now. I had a lovely weekend. Sadly, Susan didn’t have as lovely a time. She woke up Saturday morning with a horrible stomach bug and couldn’t make it to the event. She’s better, but still not 100%. I’m just glad her husband was with her to keep her company and bring ginger ale. That and our drive home in pouring rain were the two down sides of the weekend. Oh – and I stepped in a puddle on the way to the convention center, so my feet were wet all day Saturday. My shoes were still wet Sunday, so I quickly changed my plan about traveling clothes! Fortunately, I had an extra pair of shoes that looked cute with jeans!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. If OnStage looks like fun, consider signing up to be a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator. The next event is in November, and I’d love to have you join me! Of course, there are lots of other amazing benefits to being a demonstrator. Contact me to learn more, or sign up here.

Have a lovely day!
