A Color Girl after my own heart...

 

 

Happy New Year!!!

 

 

Thank you so much to all my wonderful customers and Dazzling Demos Team for your support in a wonderful year!

 

You're amazing! And I appreciate all of you!!

 

 

We are on our way to pick up Liz right now! Yay!

 

She sent me a perfect pic I asked for months ago!

She's been doing some acrylic painting since she's been down at school.

 

When we moved her back down to school in August, I was just obsessed with her collection but never thought to take a pic!

 

UVVT8282[1]

 

Aaaaahhhh!!!!! I LOVE COLOR!!!!

And clearly--so does she!

Like how awesome is that collection???

 

 

Ok, before I go, here's the card she colored with my Stampin' Blends when she was home at Thanksgiving. :)

 

Floral Statements, created by Liz Flath, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I just gave it a simple card base.

 

 

Here's all we used: 

 

 

Have a wonderful New Year!

Notice anything missing?

 

It's another In Color Day!

 

But this time, there's absolutely NO BLACKBERRY BLISS!!

(I know! How COULD I?!?!)

 

Work of Art, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Aren't the colors still amazing, though?

Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Tangelo Twist, along with Work of Art.

 

This was one of the cards we made a my demonstrator meeting Monday.

 

 

I'll be sharing swaps from my girls this week.

They do such great work!

JUST a LITTLE designer paper

 

The Moonlight DSP Stack in our new catalog is FABULOUS!!!

(Speaking of the new catalog, my order from yesterday SHIPPED TODAY!!! WOO-HOO!!!!)

 

 

Of course, you know ONE of the reasons Moonlight is so fabulous is because it has Blackberry Bliss in it!! (How can you go wrong?!)

 

 

 

DSP can help me make quick and easy cards, but I don't always want to use it all up!

 

Here's a design that gives me a WHOLE LOT OF BANG for my buck:

 

Endless Birthday Wishes, Moonlight DSP Stack, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

The DSP stacks work great for this type of design!

 

They are 4 1/2 x 6 1/2, which makes the 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 squares on my card perfect!

I could actually get 4 cards out of each sheet.

 

 

The other colors here (part of the DSP) are Sahara Sand and Hello Honey

I used the new photopolymer set Endless Birthday Wishes, too.

 

 

 

Before I go, don't forget today is Tuesday!

New Weekly Deals include a whole lot of METAL! ;)

 

 

Click HERE to RSVP for my New Catalog Open House.

 

Have a great day!! Lovin' the breeze today!!

Hip Hip Hooray!!

 

Today's the day!!!

 

Endless Birthday Wishes, ALL the new In Colors, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

We can order from the new catalog today!!!

(but NOT until noon, mountain time...while SU! updates the website.)

 

 

I'm so excited!!!!!

 

I have quite the wish list--AND I have FREEBIES coming, too!!

 

 

..which brings me to a couple things to mention:

 

  • Do YOU want the opportunity to earn FREEBIES as a demonstrator, too?! This month, you can purchase a reduced Starter Kit for only $50! Ask me for more info or even check out details HERE.

 

  • Unfortunately, the highly anticipated Blendabilities Markers will NOT be available immediately when the catalog goes live. SU! is working to make them available late June or early July.....I will update you when I know more.

 

  • I have an Open House scheduled for Friday, June 20, 6-8pm. I hope you can make it!! Even if you can't, all online orders of $50 or more [from now through the 20th], using hostess code 9XY3QEUC, will receive a pkg of the In Color Sequin Assortment or the In Color Clothespins from me. You will also be entered into my grand prize drawing for $25 of FREE PRODUCT!

 

 

I can't wait to place my order today!!

 

If you have any questions about the new catalog, open house or anything else, LET ME KNOW!!

Here's a lil somethin'

 

Something for Baby!

 

How cute is this set with these colors?!?!

 

Something for Baby, Work of Art, Itty Bitty Banners, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

We have Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Basic Gray and Whisper White.

 

I used the Chevron stamp from the new Work of Art set and Whisper White craft pad for the background on Basic Gray.

 

Perfect.

 

 

Hope you're enjoying the new catalog like I am!

 

 

 

Oh! There's another sample I snuck in on facebook--my business page: www.facebook.com/DazzledByStamping

 

By the way, I REALLY don't mean to SNEAK it. It just seems like fb never seems to do things quite the way I'd like it to--or think it will.....

 

Click on Events (toward the top) and check out the photo I added to the Open House Event.

 

 

 

 

Have a great weekend--and a fabulous Mother's Day!!

 

If you're not celebrating with your mom or your kids, I wish you wonderful memories of past times you've spent with them.

Color IS Inspiration!!

 

I had a lil play date last night my new product.

 

And I'M SO HAPPY!!!!!

 

 

I don't know about YOU, but often when I sit down to create--

...on my own

...no CASEing (Copy And Share Everything)

 

I STRUGGLE.

 

I sit there.

And sit there.

 

NOT LAST NIGHT!!!!!!!!

Wow!! I LOVE our new In Colors!!!

 

They were so fun to work with, and I was so excited and inspired by them, I made 3 cards pretty quickly! (YES. Start to finish.)

 

Any guesses on which color is my favorite? (playful sarcasm)

 

 

BLACKBERRY BLISS ROCKS!!!!

It's like Rich Razzleberry on steroids!!!!

 

Well, it just so happens that another item I could preorder is the Moonlight DSP stack that includes Basic Gray, BLACKBERRY BLISS, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand and Whisper White.

 

It's one of the 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" stacks of designer paper.

 

 

JACKPOT!!!!

 

I'M.IN.LOVE.

 

Work of Art, Moonlight DSP Stack, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Unfortunately, even on this beautiful sunny day, my picture does NOT do this card justice.

 

I really love the new Stitched Satin ribbon, too!

 

Unlike the retiring stitched satin, this is monochromatic.

The stitching isn't white, but rather the same color.

 

It's gorgeous and easy to work with.

 

 

So I have more to share, but I'm not giving it to you all at once.

Sorry!

 

I can't play ALL DAY, so I need something for tomorrow, too.

 

 

I hope you're enjoying your new catalogs, too! Tell me what you like!!

 

 

I'm off to tell you about classes.

See you again tomorrow!

Sharing with EVERYONE!!

 

Courtney, Carol, Julie and I had a fabulous time stamping and drooling over the catalog last night!

 

(Thanks for coming, girls!!)

 

 

NOW, I can share with EVERYONE!!

 

Here is the stamp set everyone received at the Catalog Premiere Monday:

 

Work of Art, available to order 6/2/14, www.dazzledbystamping.com

It definitely would have been on my wish list! But I HAVE it!!

It's available in wood and clear-mount.

 

 

Here's the card we made with it last night:

Work of Art, Gorgeous Grunge, www.dazzledbystamping.com

I LOVE IT!!

 

To me, it's kind of a combination of Happy Watercolor (you know--the swish!! from the Occasions Catalog--which is NOT in the new catalog, by the way) and Gorgeous Grunge (which we did use as a splatter here, too.)

 

Can you go wrong with those 2?!

 

 

We used Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzazz, and Rich Razzleberry--probably one of my favorite color combos from the Color Coach.

 

Color Coach, card for Pear Pizzazz, www.dazzledbystamping.comI LOVE the Color Coach for helping me work with colors!


Have you seen it?

 

Each color has a card; the BACK of the card is where the MAGIC happens.

There are 2 possible color combos suggested for each color.

 

 

If I'm in the mood for a specific color, I start with the card for that color.

After that, I look through ALL the cards for possibilities that include my color.

 

 

If I'm completely looking for inspiration, I browse the backs for something that strikes me. Love that tool.

 

 

 

Ok, so I have a couple other notes to mention about the new catalog:

 

  1. If you didn't notice, all alphabet in the current catalog is retiring. That's because NOW all alphabet sets will be only available in Photopolymer....perfect for see-through positioning!
  2. Some of the other sets are also only available in Photopolymer. One of my favorites is part of that list. Put a bookmark in your mind....What's Your Type? The possibilities are AMAZING!! You'll have to check it out.
  3. I didn't realize...there was a desire to have a KRAFT cardstock. Not Crumb Cake, but truly Kraft. Now it'shere. Kraft cardstock. It's thicker than our normal cardstock. Perfect for boxes and packaging. Carol and Courtney say they were consulted on this; so you may thank THEM. ;)

 

 

Ok, I gotta go.

 

If you can believe it, I STILL haven't written my wish list yet!!

 

I've gone through it once and have been busy ever since! And the first time through is only for absorption.... :)

 

 

I'll see what I can do today.

 

Have a great weekend!

Tape It, Washi It & Flip It

 

 

These Thinlits Card Dies make a WOW card before you even add anything to them!

 

But I DO like to dress them up a little bit. ;)

 

Here's the flip card I've been doing with my clubs the past week.

 

Tape It, Petite Pairs, I Am Me, www.dazzledbystamping.com

Tape It, Petite Pairs, I Am Me, www.dazzledbystamping.com
flip!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There's just so much I love about this fun card!

 

One thing I have to mention is that I love that SU! has been listing (in the catalog) the colors that are in the Designer Paper now.

 

I used I Am Me DSP here, which includes Basic Gray, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Real Red and So Saffron.

 

It makes it so easy to know what to pull out and work with. (I write these colors on the front of my DSP packs. So helpful!!)

 

Also, in case you can't tell here, I used the stamp set Tape It which mimics Washi Tape.

 

But I also used Washi Tape. I love mixing the two.

 

The Epic Day This and That Washi Tape has 2 of the colors from my DSP pack in it--Calypso Coral and Basic Gray.

 

How perfect is that?!

 

I'm not sure I would have figured out to put these colors together without the set...

 

and it's not a combo in the Color Coach.

 

But I sure love the way they look together.

 

So that's another place you can get your color inspiration--check out the DSP packs.

 

Even if you don't have those papers, you can still use the color combo.

 

Two more things:

 

Both the star and the pennant (front greeting) here are actually from thinlits that are part of the Card Dies set. So fun!

 

And the greetings themselves are from Petite Pairs--perfect for a flip card.

 

If you recall, Petite Pairs have an inside and an outside greeting.

 

Works great!

If you HAVE ordered yours, make sure you share yours on Pinterest so we can all see your creation!

 

Have fun!!

 

 

(By the way, have you signed up for the Lovely As a Tree Lovers Class or one of my Christmas Stamp Camps? There's still room! AND I added a picture of a card from each of those classes to my facebook page. Check it out and RSVP!)
