TYING UP BUSINESS ENDS BY TUESDAY EVENING...

Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be going in for surgery Wednesday morning.  I would like to tie up as many Retired for Sale or Product Share purchases and Stampin' Up! orders as possible by Tuesday evening.  That way I can get them in the mail or ordered before going in.

After Tuesday evening, please be patient if contacting me, as it may be a while before I am back up to speed.  How long that will be is still in question until the docs see where they are after the surgery.  Meanwhile, orders can still be placed through my Online Store.  Feel free to email or leave messages for me.  Just be patient in waiting for a response.  I will answer emails as soon as I am able, as I hope to be back to that at least sooner than the rest.  Thanks so much for all the prayers and well wishes!  It is deeply appreciated.

MOJO MONDAY, Bloomin' Bright in the Sunshine...

Today I had a Stampin' 101 scheduled with a new stamper and had only preplanned one card.  I thought I had another CAS card I was going to use, but at the last minute I realized all the cards I was thinking of had retired products in them.  YIKES!  I had very little time to design it, so I grabbed today's Mojo Monday sketch and went to work.

I have been going through a rough time medically for the last few months with severe tendonitis (been in an air cast boot for over two months), a chronic stomach disorder and now uterine cancer.  I need a little SUNSHINE in my life right now!  So, I decided to use the Floral District Designer Series Paper with it's happy, summery colors and the "Live in the Sunshine" sentiment from the Pursuit of Happiness stamp set.  I hope you enjoy this simple card!


BLOOMIN' BRIGHT IN THE SUNSHINE SUPPLIES:
  • Stamp Sets – Betsy's Blossoms (W#126004 $28.95, C#126006 $21.95),  Pursuit of Happiness (W#121907 $17.95, C#121970 $13.95)
  • Card Stock – Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Floral District DSP
  • Ink – Tangerine Tango, Rose Red
  • Ribbon – Daffodil Delight 1/2" Seam Binding (#125583, $6.95)

CAS FRIDAY, Busting Out the New In Colors!...

I haven't gotten to post anything with the new In Colors yet, so I felt like I needed to bust them out for CAS Friday!   I only have a few things that I was able to preorder in May.  I was a couple of days behind placing my new catalog order due to some ongoing medical issues.  Plus, being on the East Coast, it takes at least a week for orders to reach me.  Hopefully I will have more next week!

I decided to make a couple of unorthodox choices with this card.  Instead of using the full flower from the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set, I chose to focus on a snapshot of it by punching it out with the Postage Punch and repeating it with four of the new colors.  Then, instead of cutting out the Layered Label piece with the expected (and fabulous) new Apothecary Accents Framelits, I chose to punch out the piece with the Oval Scallop Punch.  What can I say?  I like to be different!  LOL.  This version uses all five In Colors on the neutral backdrop of Sahara Sand and Whisper White:


In this version, I used Raspberry Ripple in both the first punch and the sentiment punch.  I prefer them both in this color as it "pops" more, but felt like I needed to use all five In Colors in the first version.


IN COLOR CLOSEUPS SUPPLIES:
  • Stamp Sets – Betsy's Blossoms (W#126004 $28.95, C#126006 $21.95),  Layered Labels (W#127070 $33.95, C#127072 $25.95)
  • Card Stock – Whisper White, Sahara Sand
  • Ink – Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit
  • Ribbon – Whisper White  3/8" Taffeta (#109070, $6.95)
  • Punches – Postage (#122344, $15.95), Scallop Oval (#119856, $16.95)
  • Accessories – Basic Pearl Jewels Accents (#119247, $4.95)
  • Tools – Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430, $3.95)

TOOL TIP TUESDAY, RGB & Hex Color Code Charts for Stampin' Up! Colors...

Today I have the files that many of you have been asking for--updated RGB and Hex Color Code charts!  Using the official RGB codes from My Digital Studio, I have updated my custom handout with the color codes for all our exclusive Stampin' Up! colors including our brand new In Colors.

The RGB codes are great for journaling on scrapbook pages or for personalizing a sentiment for a card on your computer.  Of course, you want the colors to match the Stampin' Up!'s colors of the rest of your project!  My Digital Studio is perfect for this--which is exactly why I love it!  However, maybe you can't invest in our fabulous software just yet, but would still like to match the colors for your fonts in Microsoft Word or other software.  These codes will help you do just that.

Download the RGB code chart by clicking the picture on the left or here:  Marie's SU! RGB Color Codes 

I printed mine out and put them in a sheet protector as I use them constantly!  I hope you find it as useful as I do!
The HEX Color Codes are used for HTML to match the exclusive Stampin' Up! colors on websites, emails, etc.  They are primarily useful for demonstrators which are among many of my readers.  Enjoy! 

Download the HEX Codes Chart by clicking the picture at the left or here:  Marie's SU! HEX Color Codes

Please Note:  Demonstrators, please give credit where it is due for the work that went into these handouts.  You may print the copyrighted handouts to share with downline or customers in it's entirety, including my name and contact info, or not at all.  Sorry to have to emphasize that, but I am having a lot of trouble with my work, photos, files, etc., showing up on other blogs with no credit given.  Thanks for understanding!

INTRODUCING NEW FIRM FOAM INK PADS...


With the introduction of the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog, Stampin’ Up! has made a very big change to our Stampin' Pads—NEW Firm Foam pads!  They change your stamping experience for the better.  You’re going to love these new Stampin' Pads—just look at all the exciting benefits listed below:
  • Provide better ink coverage for your stamps!
  • Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
  • Create wonderfully solid images.  The Firm Foam releases more ink onto your rubber stamp than the felt pads.  When using the Firm Foam pad, your stamp will get an even, solid covering of ink that you may not have been able to achieve with the felt pads.  Please note: if you are using the ink pad frequently you may need to re-ink your Firm Foam pad more often.
  • Have a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off!
  • Come with color name labels in all four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)—just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the side of the pad for easy identification!
  • Use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist!
  • Are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!
Please note: Five ink colors have undergone formula changes to improve functionality and color stability with the new firm foam pads.  These colors are:
  • Basic Black
  • Basic Gray
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Tempting Turquoise
All five colors of the reformulated inks have been fully tested and approved.  While using the new ink formula in the old Stampin' Pads is fine, we do NOT recommend using the old ink formula in the new firm foam pads.   Beginning June 1, all Ink Refills and Classic Stampin' Pads will contain the newly formulated ink.

All individual firm foam pads are now available for order;  however, Stampin' Up! has run into some packaging constraints with the collection packs which may temporarily cause a backorder situation.   They expect to resolve this situation soon, and the following items will begin shipping the week of June 11.

#126987: Brights Collection Classic Stampin' Pads
#126988: Subtles Collection Classic Stampin' Pads
#126989: Regals Collection Classic Stampin' Pads

For more information, check out this PDF with frequently asked questions.on the new stamp pads:  Firm Foam FAQs

Here is a video with Shannon West about the new Firm Foam Pads:
