Welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge with Susan,
Buffy and myself. It's really good to have stamping
enthusiasts checking in with us every other Friday!
This week, Buffy set us up with a lovely color
challenge. These are wonderful, bright colors, so feel
free to locate your sunglasses.
For this challenge, I went sort of vintage. I did a watercolor smoosh (on watercolor paper), using a piece of acetate. These colors blend together to make a lovely backdrop. Then I stamped ferns from
Butterfly Basics (p 149) and Painted Harvest (p 49 of the
Holliday Mini) in each color. The sentiment comes from the Sorry
For Everything set on page 98. I love Linen Thread (p 199) with almost anything, but it really gets the job done when paired with leafy images. I thank you for stopping by, and suggest that you click on, to see what Buffy and Susan did with these lovely colors.
It’s big news when something breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!

How to Order:
With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.
The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:
Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
Limit is 3 tools per demonstrator and 1 tool per customer per reservation window. (Note: The Stamparatus is not a Cash-and-Carry item.)
You and your customers may participate in multiple reservation windows.
In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
Recently I mentioned that Stampin' Up! will be releasing
a line of alcohol markers. Well, the arrival date has been
announced! On November 1st, the Stampin' Blends
will be available, as individual markers, in coordinated color pairings, or a complete set!
In addition to the new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers,
a new set is being offered. The Color Me Happy
set includes birds, lanterns (above), a flower and 4 sentiments.
In this example, I paired the new Color Me Happy set
with Butterfly Basics on page 149. Given the pattern of
lanterns that I stamped, I really liked this sentiment. Stampin' Blends used on this card include Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral. As recommended, the images were stamped with the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad, and then colored in.
Today, our challenge is all about using your favorite
Textured Impressions Embossing folder.
These folders are found on pages 210-11 in the annual
catalog, plus others scattered throughout the Holiday catalog.
This was a difficult challenge because I LOVE the SU Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. ALL of them. I just kind of picked one that called to me in the moment. This card looked very different in my head, but that is
sometimes the way it goes. I wanted to place a stamped
image behind the trees from the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, but it did not turn out as I pictured.
On to plan "B"! Instead, I took leaves from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies on page 216 and placed them behind the stamped sentiment from Painted Harvest (Holiday catalog p 49). Leaves with the Woodland folder were a natural fit. Besides, the leaves are falling outside, so raking season has begun. Thank you for checking out our challenge.
