Get ready to order this super fun, new Stampin' UP! Fabulous Flamingo set on June 1, 2017!
I was thrilled to receive this fun Fabulous Flamingo stamp set at the Stampin' Up! April OnStage event in San Diego! I knew right away I was going to love playing with bright colors to create projects with this stamp set!! If you are looking for it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, you'll find it on page 177.
One night when we were mall walking and eating dinner in the mall, we sat in Johnny Rockets eating and as I looked across the mall to the stores on the other side, I was looking at this flamingo display in the Vans shoe store … and of course my mind was thinking… OH I have that new Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog!! I need to make a card like this!! 🙂
I have a fun tip for you .. get more mileage out of your punches (or dies) by altering the shape after you punch! As you can see for my Tickled Pink label, I punched Whisper White cardstock with the Pretty Label punch first, then just cut off the top and bottom scalloped parts!
Color Combo Tip:
This is my Stampin' Up! Color Combo for this card. I find it helpful to take a photo of the ink pads I use when stamping, just in case I want to recreate the project, or if someone asks me weeks or months down the road, and my memory has failed 🙂
You'll notice from the stamps in the set that it is a "3 step" stamp set.. there are 2 layers of solid images and 1 layer that is an outline for stamping the flamingo. I stamped the most solid image in Flirty Flamingo ink, then the next solid image with Calypso coral, and then the outline in black.
I stamped the water in Bermuda Bay and then used the aquapainter and water to go over it, and then I decided to use my Clear Wink of Stella on the water, too.
The leaf stamp is in the set, too, and I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist for a fun bright finish to this card.

Reminder: Fabulous Flamingo stamp set and Lemon Lime Twist available June 1st.
I am VERY Sad to share this news with you – The Blendabilities Product Line has been Discontinued. I know.. I think we all need a moment to take that in.
As I shared with you last week, the Blendabilities markers have been experiencing defect issues, namely that many of the markers arrived dry to the customers.
In a nutshell, the manufacturer is unable to correct the problem and provide Stampin' Up! with a solution. Therefore the product line has been discontinued.
The good news is that Stampin' Up! is committed to ONLY selling the BEST products available, so rather than ship a defective product and continue to send replacements, they have made this decision.
The Memento Black Ink pad and refill will still be available (and that's great news because it's a fabulous black pad!)
What should you do?
1. If you currently have a pack of Blendabilities on backorder that you purchased, do nothing, you will receive a refund from Stampin' Up! within the next month.
2. If you have selected a freepack of Blendabilities from hostess rewards or from a Sale a Bration choice and they are on backorder or defective, please complete the survey (CLICK HERE) – have your original order number handy – and you will be able to select a replacement Sale a Bration or hostess item.
3. If you feel you have a defective package of Blendabilities, please contact Stampin' Up! Demo Support at 1 800 STAMPUP.
Note: due to the unavailability of the Blendabilities as part of the advertised Sale a Bration offering, some of the other 14 Sale a Bration products MAY run out.. stamp sets will be available through 3/31/15, but the other items MAY risk selling out.
Before I share the new stamp set and weekly deals with you, I MUST share this fun idea with you!
Oh my gosh.. you have to see what my son Jason made!!!!
I was working on my Founder's Circle swaps with this cute Ghostie die cut from the Fun Fall Framelit die set, and Jason walks in to say hi, and he picks up a ghost and turns it upside down and says… THAT'S A MAN'S HEAD! Look what he did! 🙂
So if you have kids in the house (or Big Kids, too) 🙂 invite them to come create with you and you'll be amazed what they see that you don't see!! 🙂
