This year I made a big change in my craft room and organized all of my Stampin' UP! cardstock, ink pads and reinkers in Rainbow Order!! I have been thinking about it for years, and with the new color revamp this year, I decided rather than memorizing which colors were in which Stampin' UP! color families, I would just change to rainbow order!
Results: I LOVE IT!
ABOVE: my ink pad storage units from Stamp-n-Storage, show 2 styles of ink pad holders. The one on the bottom is for the new style Stampin' UP! ink pads only (it won't fit the old style). The one on top is the old style (see this post), and holds the old and new style pads. They offer MANY different styles of ink pad holders, and from June 8 to 18, 2018 you'll find some of them on sale at 15% off!
Above: I redid my reinkers into rainbow order as well!! They are all in a drawer next to me as I craft, so I can easily grab them to reink my pads or use them for watercoloring techniques. I used retired candy dots and glimmer dots, some colored with Stampin' Blends or Sharpie markers, to try to capture a color close to the ink color, then I wrote the name on the lid with a fine tip Sharpie.

Like I mentioned above, I LOVE the rainbow order for my supplies! The great news is.. if you try it and you don't like it, it's so easy to change … but for me, this was a GREAT change! I love just being able to "browse the greens", or "browse the reds" at a glance!! :)

Ah yes, the iPad Birthday celebration…. thanks to my wonderful bonus from Stampin' Up! last week I was able to buy my hubby an iPad for his bday … he had a BIG WISH and I was so happy I could make it come true by getting the iPad for him!
This was the card I made for him, inspired by the fabulously talented Mary Brown!
We had a nice casual day celebrating his birthday and capped it off with a nice dinner at Outback with friends… We didn't get a photo with all of us but we did get one with Mindy. Mindy gave us all some great tutorials about how the iPad works and the amazing things it is capable of .. wow.. TECHNOLOGY is amazing …
We enjoyed a little celebrating and he loved his iPad.. whoohooo!
Here is the inside of the card…. i actually printed the inside polkdot paper in MDS since I wanted it to be a lighter shade of Concord Crush… amazing how you can combine MDS and real live stamping..
Yes, those are rhinestones on the candle flames.. I LOVE those little self sticky rhinestones! (see pg 188).
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend… see ya!
I kind of went a little crazy with all the layers in this card… just kept adding fun new stuff…
I layered a punch with a die cut, 2 pieces of Greenhouse Gala DSP, a piece of embossed Very Vanilla, and some paper lace … kind of a hodgepodge but I think it's fun. Click for FREE Paper Lace Video Tutorial.
Colors I used in this card:
