Stampin' Up! new Annual Catalog Sneak Peek with Color & Contour Stamp Set


  • Stampin' Up! Color & Contour Bundle
  • Stampin' Up! Blending Brushes
  • Final Week for Bundle Pricing on these carry-over Bundles

Here's one more set that you'll love for making quick, simple cards using Blending Brushes.  I'm using another of the new In Colors today, called Polished Pink for my basecard and used Blending Brushes to add color to my image layer.  Then with just one of the stamps and one sentiment from the Stampin' Up! Color & Contour Stamp Set, I created  a simple, interesting main image layer that took only minutes to complete.  This Stamp Set includes many additional images and sentiments, but I love when I can create a simple card with nothing more than ink, paper, stamps, and a bit of bling.    The Color & Contour Bundle is a Stamp Set and a set of Dies called Coordinating Scalloped Contours.  It's from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog being released 4 May 2021, and it's perfect for a new stamper without a large stash of supplies.  It includes images and dies that will take you from stamping simple cards to creating cards with layers and dies cuts that will showcase an avid stampers abilities as well.  One of the way's to purchase the new 2021-2023 In Colors is as a Cardstock Assortment Pack of 8-1/2 X 11" cardstock.  See page 126 of your new Annual Catalog.  Item 155643 | $$9.00 USD for 20 sheets, 4 each of the 5 new In Colors. You'll also want to purchase the 5 new In Color Ink Pads.  Item 155738 |$33.75 for one of each new 2021-2023 In Colors.

Polished Pink floral card idea using Color & Contour Bundle from Stampin' Up!

I used Blending Brushes and added shoft shades of Polished Pink and Soft succulent to part of my image layer before stamping.  These soft blending brushes are rubbed across your ink pad, then rubbed onto scratch paper until the desired shade is achieved.  Then rub the Blending Brush across the surface you wish to cover.  One you finish, clean your bushes by running them under water.  Each package includes 3 Blending Brushes:  Item 153611 | $12.00 USD.   

Three Stampin' Up! Blending Brushes | 153611 |$12.00 USD

After adding soft color to my Basic White layer, I stamped the flower images and sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I added a few of the Polished Pink In Color Gems to complete my simple card.
