Stampin for Autism team - blog hop



Hello Friends!! Today I am participating in a Blog Hop to support Autism and to fundraise for OAR which is the Organization for Autism Research to continue helping the families impacted by Autism.

As I mentioned earlier this month, April is the month for Autism awareness, so therefore you might have seen a lot of blog hops supporting this cause and raising funds to help organizations with their research and to continue providing programs that support those impacted by this disability 

To be honest with you all, I just recently started learning about this disability, and I am really surprised with how little it is known specially when a lot of children are being identified to have certain degree of Autism. When reading about this, most of the articles mention that it impacts children differently, and while there are certain commonalities on the symptoms, each child will be impacted differently, so truly the families going thru this have to learn from scratch about how to help their little ones as each case is very unique.

My card today is using dapper denim as blue is one of the colors used to represent Autism, and I wanted to make a card with a child in mind as this desease impacts mainly kids, and I thought this sentiment is just perfect! don't you think!!

On the previous blog hop about Autism, one fellow demonstrator mentioned that both of her kids have Autism and she described them as having super powers! It moved my heart seeing how she described the uniqueness of her little ones!! so I thought this sentiment would fit perfectly! 



As usual, this is a quick and easy card that you can duplicate without a problem, I used the eastern palace designer series paper, and picked the color combo for my card based on this DSP.

I started by stamping the dinosaur in dapper denim and then added the bones in basic black, this was super easy as the stamp set is photopolymer so you can see thru the stamp and therefore it is easy to line up the solid image with the bones. 
Then I added the leaves in lemon lime twist, so that I could fill out the background 
Finally I stamped the sentiment in a piece of lemon lime twist and cut a flag/banner at the end of one side of the sentiment and add it to the card with dimensionals and then added a bow with the dapper denim stripped grosgrain ribbon! 
I don't get tired to mention how great it is to have everything color coordinate that perfectly.. :)

  
Hope you have enjoy this card, if you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting me, I would be more than happy to help!!


Please remember to continue visiting all blogs participating on this hop, I am sure it will help increase awareness about Autism and how it is impacting families and also if you can please help us raising funds, any donation is greatly appreciated.

So this week I am focusing on these two products..  The pieces and patterns stamp set is really cool, as you have a great variety of images that can give you different looks in your card making projects..
 I particularly like the dinosaur and the bear images, I really think these are the cutest!! and I love that all the cards you make with this set are really quick and easy, yet they all turn out to be really beautiful!

Here is the sample for the card today!!, I really like this layout!! I love the look on the circle arrangement and adding a little bit of the mini gold sequin trim adds a lot to the card! don't you think?


You can see more of the details on the close up of this card!, I colored the little bear with the light shade of crumb cake stampin' blends!! I really enjoy using the blends for coloring, it is just so easy!!

Soon to retire!!! - Pick a pattern DSP and Pieces and patterns stamp set


Hello Friends!! As you all know we have now the list of retiring products from both the Annual catalog as well as the Mini Occasions catalog!! and it is so sad to see many of our favorites go.. so for the following weeks I will be featuring some my favorites so you can see them in action.. remember that ones these are gone, they are gone forever, so if your wish list still has some items that are retiring, don't wait, get them ASAP!!!

One thing to note is that stamp sets are guaranteed until May 25th, but all other products are only while supply last!!

Also for ink pads being retired, Stampin' Up! will guarantee fulfilling the orders thru May 7th, after this date it will only be while supply last! 

So the stamp set being feature this week is the pieces and patterns, as well as the coordinating pick a pattern designer series paper!!!


I honestly like this set a lot!!! I like that it has a good variety of images and the designer paper I think is perfect for multiple types of cards, I will be showing you some more cards thru out this week, so keep visiting my blog this week :)
The card featured today is a quick an easy card perfect for friendship, don't you think? and I used the same colors being featured in the designers series paper for the color combo in the card. A lot of the times that is how I end up designing my cards, just looking at the colors being used on the paper pack and voila, it is perfect every time :)


Below is the close up, I added a gold faceted gem to the flower to make that flower pop up! 

By the way the banner is in Emerald Envy, and this is one of the in colors retiring this year!! so if you like it, make sure you stock up on this one before it's gone!!


And as usual, here is the video tutorial for this card!! as always you will see this is super easy to put together, so give it a try.. :)


Also here is the supply list for all the items I use to make this card, you can click at any of the images to go to my online store, where you can purchase any of these items!! thanks a lot!! I truly appreciate your support, also don't forget....

Color Revamp!!



Hello Friends!! Today I want to share about one of the announcements from OnStage, a Stampin' Up! event for demonstrators, that I am particularly excited about!! Stampin' Up! let us know that they are doing a Color Revamp!!! 

They call it a Color Revamp vs a Color Refresh as they are making major changes to the color families that are currently being offered!! - Please continue reading, I know change is scary at times, but believe me you will get excited with the new offering of colors..

Also I am sharing some great tools that will help you for color combinations, so be sure to save this blog post so that you can access them again and again.. 

Now lets talk about the color revamp!!! -  there are no changes to the In Color program, each year we will continue to have Five new colors that will be available for Two years, so here is the list of the new In colors (on your left)!! 


They all look so bright and vibrant!! I am super excited with lovely lipstick!! 

In addition to this, we will have brand NEW Colors never seen before!!! so check out the list below!! a lot of these colors are just perfect!! 



I am super excited about the NEW purple shades!! I cannot wait to see Gorgeous Grape, and Highland Heather!! another one that I am particularly excited to see is Granny Apply Green! I love this shade of green!!! and I think it will be great to have Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam, as we were missing these shades of colors for baby cards, don't you agree?? 

Which color is the one that have you the most excited about??..  please let me know..  

Now as you can imagine with us getting new colors, we will also have retiring colors.. so here is the list of colors that are retiring :(



I am particularly sad to see Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo retire.. but I think I will survive ha, ha, ha, for the rest of the colors I am sure it will be fine as we are getting great new options!!


Now the other part of this announcement that got me all excited is that we will have some favorite colors back!!! so see the returning colors below! I am sure you will be so happy to see them returning from retirement! there are a lot of them that were part of my all time favorites!! YAY!!!


I am truly super excited to see all of these colors back!! seriously!! 

But now lets see the new line up for the color families that we will have, when you see them all together in their family, you just cant resist to fall in love with all of them!! I promise you!



Are they not making you happy when you see them in family!! it just makes more sense to see them together!! I definitely love how they all complement each other, I just cant wait to get all of these colors!!  
Now if you noticed the Basic Black, Whisper White and Very Vanilla are no longer on the Neutral family, don't panic, they are not being discontinued, they are just going to be part of a color family..

Some other things to know is that Stampin' Up! is changing the ink pad case as well as their formulation, so it will be easier to open, it will be stackable, they now have labels for the outside of the case and the inside of the case, so you always know which color you are using even when the pads are open (I think this was my favorite part) and they are adding a defoamer to their formulation, so that you don't have bubbles on the pad or when inking the stamps - I honestly only had a couple of instances where this has happened, and I thought I might have just put too much reinker in my pad, so I was truly excited to see how Stampin' Up! is always trying to better themselves and keep with great quality of products!

One other thing that was announced on the color revamp, is that we no longer will have the Basic Black and Basic Gray Archival ink pads!!, but we will  have the Gray Granite that will be offered in the classic ink pads under the neutral color family to substitute Basic Gray and we are going to have Stazon ink pad back to substitute the Basic Black. 


And as promise here are some tools you can use to get your creative juices flowing with color combinations using the brand new colors, also there is one file that you might want to get so you do your own combinations!!!  so download these files!!

Click on the images below to get these files!



And as always, you can click at the below image to go to my online store where you can purchase any of the Stampin' Up! items!! 




Remember we have the retiring list available already, so check out what items are still on your wish list that will be retiring!!
