2019 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek!

Today’s projects are for the card maker that wants an easy WOW effect without a lot of work. I’ve used the To A Wild Rose bundle, a 2019 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek, and a homemade ink pad!

These are a few of the projects I shared in my presentation at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event this past weekend in Charlotte, NC. The, To a Wild Bundle, was the focus of my presentation. I got these wonderful products about six weeks before the event, to create and play with, as I planned for the presentation.

I had to sign a nondisclosure agreement since these products are in the New 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog which doesn’t go live till June 4th! It was so fun and exciting to finally be able to share these projects at OnStage, and now, here with you. Plus there’s lots more coming!

Today's projects are for the card maker that wants an easy WOW effect. I've used the To A Wild Rose bundle, a 2019 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek!!

These projects are among the simpler of the 14 plus projects I made in preparation for this event!

This first card is the simplest of the set because it’s just simple stamping and sponging. This stamp set is a 2-step stamping set, which means that several of the images are designed to lay one over the other, OR next to each other, to complete the image. For the card below I’ve used three of the stamps in the set, one of the rose images, the center of the rose and one of the leaf images.

Positioning these stamps is super easy since they are completely different shapes and essentially are next to one another, instead of superimposed on top of one another.

This catalog sneak peek project, shows the easiest way to do 2-step stamping. So if you buy this set and want something simple, you definitely have lots of options.

That said, there are three rose images and three of the leaves images, that can be stamped over one another.

For the card below I’ve used two of the rose images and two of the leaves images. I also did heat embossing and sponging. This is a bit more stepped up than the last one, but it’s still pretty simple.

A few details about this card:

  • The color scheme used is Pear Pizzazz, Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel.
  • The two blues were used to make my own ink pad.
  • After all the stamping and heat embossing was done I did some light sponging in Pear Pizzazz and Balmy Blue.
  • The sentiment is heat embossed in Silver.

So are you wondering how I got the gradations of color in the rose?

Well, the secret is that I made my own ink pad using Blueberry Bushel ink in the center and Balmy Blue ink around the outside. It’s still simple stamping but I’ve gotten what I think is a real WOW effect, with the darks and lights in the one rose image. Then, of course, I heat embossed in white in the second rose image, and that just adds to the wow effect, with a bit of contrast.

Here’s the DIY ink pad I used for this card.

I’ll be sharing more details about making and reusing a DIY ink pad in another post coming soon!

So if you watched my recent Facebook Live, you probably watched me create the card below.

It’s sort of a remake of the card above. I just used a different color scheme with another homemade ink pad. I did show three ways to create the focal piece in the video. This simplest version seemed to be the most popular with people watching the Facebook Live. If you want to see what the other options were, definitely check out my video below.

A few details about this card:

  • The color scheme is Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Blackberry Bliss.
  • The three purples were used to make my own ink pad.
  • The sentiment is heat embossed in white.

I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the centers of each of the flowers, which you can see in the photo below.

I used Highland Heather ink to stamp the center of the flower.

By the way, I did add some more stamped leaves after I went off camera. There just seemed to be too much white space for my taste when I was putting this together.
