Remarkable You stamp set from Stampin' Up!

  • Remarkable You in Powder Pink
  • 4 days remain to order retiring items

Powder Pink Lilies

Today's card uses one of our current stamp sets that will carry over to the new catalog with new papers and inks...and I'm loving it!  I'm using the Remarkable You set with the new Pink Powder and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I used a masking technique on the lilies before stamping the branches.  To color the lilies I started with an ink pad and aqua painter and then I added a bit of light, light, light Mellon Mambo watercolor pencil to fill in what I had missed with an aqua painter.  

I used the new Powder Pink cardsotck for my base card, a Whisper White layer, and then one of the Powder Pink designs from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper packs.  The sentiment and image layer is Whisper White.  If I'm stamping the sentiment on the image block, I'll usually stamp my sentiment first -- especially if it is a large sentiment-- to ensure I have enough room for it before I do the rest of my stamping.  Also, when stamping Archival Basic Black, which tends to remain wet longer than our regular fast drying inks, I'll keep a paper towel handy to blot my black stamping before I handle the card.    

I used a Daffodil Delight watercolor pencil to accent the flower center, and I used Old Olive on the lily stems. 

The corner of the image layer is accented with the new Glimmer Enamel dots in three sizes. I love that they are on acetate so that you can align them on your card by laying the acetate over the area where you plan to transfer the dots and use the dots that remain as a positioning guide.   These glimmer dots are going to be big sellers!  I can't get enough of them!  I squeal and smile every time I pick them up!

New Items Sneak Peek

This is the Glitter Enamel Dots.  They are adhesive-backed dots in Ombre shades.  10 each in 4 colors including Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, Berry Burst, and Old Olive.  The hues make it easy to match these dots with many of our colors, such as the Powder Pink I matched it with on toady's cards.  

Glitter Enamel Dots

These were so popular, they sold out during the Demonstrator preview order period.  Stampin' Up! worked hard with the vendor to get these back in stock, and our supplies will be replenished by June 5. 

4 days to get Retiring Items

With only a few days remaining, you may want to look through the catalog one last time and check the Retiring Merchandise List.  I picked up one of the holiday bundles that will carry over to the new catalog saving myself 10%.  

The bundles that will carry over to the new catalog (bundles = stamp sets and matching dies or punches), will still be available for purchase, after May 31, but the bundle pricing goes away and you'll pay full price for these coordinating items..  Until May 31, you can purchase bundles with the 10% discount.  June 1, the special pricing goes away.
