Good-Bye Color Me Happy Chubby Birds

Color Me Happy Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

As I sit here on my porch swing writing today's post, the sun is shining and the birds are singing their sweet songs and all is right in the world.  Speaking of Birds, Stampin' Up!  announced this week that my beloved chubby birds from the Color Me Happy Stamp set will be retired as of May 31, 2018 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  So here's my final salute to this adorable stamp set. 

Note:  The Color Me Happy stamp set never made it to a catalog.  It was introduced with the launch of the wildly popular Stampin' Blends last fall.

You may have noticed that I have paired the Color Me Happy Last-Chance stamp set with the incoming Stitched Labels Framelits dies.  And yes, I readily admit that I am currently enamored with these dies, but not to worry, true to my nature, I will soon move on to the next shiny thing.  But, can you blame me for loving the Stitched Labels Dies?  They are just so lovely and so versatile and they will be available with the launch of the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog starting June 1, 2018 at noon Mountain Time!

I inked my thank you stamp (Color Me Happy) with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder onto Vellum Card Stack.   Then, I added a Adirondack Chair (Seasonal Layers Dies) and a piece of lovely Wood Textures Designer paper to  complete my light and airy relaxing outdoor look.  And for a final finishing touch, I watercolored my adorable birds with Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party Inks and brushed them with a light layer of Wink of Stella to look like the sun is shining on them.

Stampin' Up! Color Revamp & New Ink Pads



Stampin' Up! Retiring Colors

Hello Friends,

You may have heard by now the Stampin' Up! is doing a big Color Revamp this year along with some ink pad changes.  It's super exciting and I fully intended to make a video for you detailing the changes, but life got in the way.  I've been running back and forth to the hospital all week.  Our son who has epilepsy had a monitored medicine change this week.  Because of time constraints, I decided to do a detailed pictured explanation.  Most of my pictures will be in rainbow order.  Be sure to keep scrolling.  There's lots of pictures and the pads are last.

The most immediate thing that you need to know is the Retiring Colors.  These colors will be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, so get your favorites before they are gone.

Pictured left to right: Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach, Always Artichoke, Wild Wasabi, Emerald Envy, Island Indigo, Dapper Denim, Marina Mist, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder, Sweet Sugar Plum and Chocolate Chip.

This list includes the In Colors scheduled to retire this year and 13 Core Colors.  On a side note, Flirty Flamingo retired as an In Color, but is back as a Core Color.

Stampin' Up! Ink

I can't say enough about the new Ink Pad design.  They rock!  It was time for Stampin' Up! to update the mold and they knocked it out of the park.  Inks are still stored upside down for juicier pads, but you can open them with a push of you thumb.  They open much like a makeup compact.  They're also a snugger fit to keep the air out.  Just look at the comparison of 5 stacked side by side!  Speaking of stacking, the new pads are designed to stack.


Stampin' Up! Ink

The size is ever so slightly different.  The old and the new style are the same width, but the newer pads are a skosh smaller.  The pads will fit in both the retiring  ink caddy as well as the Stamp-n-Storage Ink Storage.  


Stampin' Up! Ink

And that's not all, there's more.  Stampin' Up! has added a defoamer to cut down on bubbling and to give you a more even coating of ink on your stamp for a smoother more solid look.  And if that's not enough, Stampin' Up! has designed a smaller label to insert inside your pad, so that you can easily identify your pads when there are multiples on your work surface.

Note:  We will no longer carry Archival inks, so the old Basic Gray Ink Refill should not be used on the new Classic Ink Basic Gray.  For Black Inks there are 2 options-Jet Black Stazon and Tuxedo Black Momentos Inks.  Use Stazon for watercoloring and use Momento for coloring with Blender Pens.

 

Clarifications on ReInkers-You can use old reinkers on your new pads with the exception of archival inks, but you will loose the defoamer advantage.   You can also use new reinker on your old pads and gain the defoamer advantage.
