COLOR REVAMP & RETIRING COLORS!!!   This brings me to the 2018 Color Revamp!  In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, Stampin' Up! decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover with the new catalog effective June 1.  This beautiful new variety of shades will inspire your creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting, however it does mean we will have to say goodbye to many of our current colors.  I wanted to get the retirement info out right away, so you don't miss out on your favorites!!!   I’ll be sharing more information on the new colors coming tomorrow!

ONSTAGE HARTFORD EVENT...

This weekend was Stampin' Up's OnStage Local Events.  I attended the Hartford event and had a great time with all my stampin' friends!  I thought I'd share a few of the pics from the weekend!  I will update this post tomorrow with a sneak peek of the goodies we got at the event.  This shot was with my upline, Melody Tess Rollins (back left) and sidelines Marion Swaim, Monica Giberti and Angela Khan.


Too bad my face is so shadowed by sign in this one!  I could have used it to update my profile pic finally otherwise.


Friday night, I attended a business tips dinner with these lovely ladies at Vivo!  It was a lot of fun and I think we all learned from each other.


Saturday night, I gathered with team members for dinner at Firebox, a local farm to table restaurant that was delicious!  I forgot to take pictures of our group, but I did get these two shots of my delicious dinner and dessert....


4/9/18 Update:  This is a photo I snapped as soon as I got back to the hotel room showing most of the awesome swag we got at the event.  Spoiler alert!

ARIEL, THE LITTLE MERMAID PUNCH ART CARD...

Earlier this week, I shared my Hungry Mouse Punch Art Card that I made for an OnStage card swap.  I promised to share my second entry into a Punch Art card swap and here it is!  I just love all the mermaid stamps we have now!  My office is actually a feminine aqua decor with a few sea and mermaid accents and inspired me to choose a mermaid as my next punch art project.  I decided to model her after Ariel, the Little Mermaid! 


I used our new Brusho Crystal Colours for the "ocean" background using a "smash" technique.  Every one of them came out differently!  I just love Brusho and have had so much fun trying out new ways to experiment with them!


That Prussian Blue can be a bit difficult to wash off though!   And this was AFTER the first washing!!!  Took a lot more scrubbing, Gender Bender soap and washing my hair to get most of it off!  LOL.

You might be able to see the "cupping" of the bra a bit better in this one?


I hope you all enjoy my Ariel card!

LITTLE MERMAID PUNCH ART CARD SUPPLIES:


LITTLE MERMAID PUNCH ART DIRECTIONS:
  1. Body:  Punch one lemon from the Lemon Builder Punch with Blushing Bride card stock.  Draw lines with Blushing Bride Marker to give the illusion of arms.  Sponge Blushing Bride on edges.  After adhering tail, add a dot for the belly button with the Blushing Bride marker.
  2. Head:  Punch one 1-1/4" Circle from Blushing Bride for head.  Sponge Blushing Bride on edges.  Using the eraser on a new pencil, stamp Blushing Bride Circles onto face for cheeks.  Punch two 1/8" Circles for eyes from Pacific Point and adhere with Fine-tip Glue Pen.  Draw mouth with Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.
  3. Tail:  Cut one Paisley Framelit piece from Emerald Envy. Nip the top with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch as shown.  Hand-cut off the end of the tail as shown.  Run the tail through the Petal Burst Embossing Folder to simulate scales.
  4. Fins:  Cut two leaves from the Lemon Builder Punch with Emerald Envy.  Run through the Seaside Embossing Folder.  Apply Wink of Stella.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere to the end of the tail.
  5. Waist "fins"?:  Punch one mask from the Fox Builder Punch with Emerald Envy.  Apply Wink of Stella.  Adhere to the tail at the waistline with Mini Glue Dots.
  6. Hair:  Punch 6-7 tails from the Fox Builder Punch with Real Red card stock.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere tails to each other around head flipping in different directions.  Stamp and punch starfish from Blossom Builder Punch with Crumb Cake cardstock.  Apply Wink of Stella (I used my custom colored one with Crushed Curry and Soft Suede reinker added to give a golden glow).
  7. Shell Bra:  Punch two 3/4" Circles.  Place on the sticky strip on a post-it (shown above).  Place into the Blossom Builder Punch as shown to "re-punch" the circle into a shell.  Draw lines on each shell.  Apply Wink of Stella over the shell.  Using a fondant "ball" cake decorating tool, I rounded the backside of the shell and then applied a Mini Stampin' Dimensional inside the "cup" of each shell and adhere to the body.

HUNGRY LITTLE MOUSE PUNCH ART CARD...

This weekend, I will be attending the Stampin' Up! OnStage Hartford Event for the new Annual Catalog reveal, awesome stamping demonstrations, meeting fellow stamping friends, etc.  I am so excited!  I joined two organized Punch Art swaps for the weekend and I can't wait to show you my entries.

First up is my Hungry Little Mouse card!  He is eating his way right through this block of cheese.  Such a cutie!


Apparently, I am whisker challenged!  I just can't seem to draw them in straight and even on both sides.  That is why I ultimately decided to forgo the whiskers on my mouse.  I do like them though.  Just not the way I draw them!  And that is why I prefer stamping!  LOL.

Check back later this week for my second Punch Art card!  I promise, you won't be sorry! 

HUNGRY LITTLE MOUSE PUNCH ART CARD SUPPLIES:


HUNGRY LITTLE MOUSE INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Body:  Punch one Body from Smoky Slate with the Fox Builder Punch.  Sponge Smoky Slate on punched piece.
  2. Head:  Punch one head from Smoky Slate with the Fox Builder Punch.  Cut off the ears.  Sponge Smoky Slate on punched piece.  Stamp with the eyes & noses stamp in Basic Gray Archival.
  3. Ears:  Punch two 3/4" Circles from Smokey Slate and sponge Smoky Slate on circles.  Punch two 1/2" Circles from Pink Pirouette and sponge with Blushing Bride.  Adhere the pink circle on top of the Smoky Slate Circle.  Adhere with glue dots behind the head.
  4. Tail:  Punch one cat from Smoky Slate with the Cat Punch.  Cut off tail and adhere behind the mouse body.
  5. Cheese:  Hand cut a triangle piece of Daffodil Delight.  Punch holes with the 1/8" Circle Punch and sponge with Crushed Curry.

Sponge with Crushed Curry, especially around the holes. Apply Stampin' Dimensionals to the back and adhere on to the Crushed Curry layer.
