JAI386 Just add R - Ribbon of Courage thank you

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is to Just add 'R', so our projects need to include a colour, technique, Stamp set, or any other element beginning with the letter R. This is my card.

My R challenge element is the Ribbon of Courage stamp set & dies bundle. I made this card as a thank you to those who generously contributed to my Alzheimer's Australia fundraiser, in honour of my Mum, who's living with late stage Alzheimer's.

Meet Stamparatus - your new stamping best friend

I'm so excited to introduce you to our new stamp positioning tool - the Stamparatus (Stamp-a-rat-us).
Designed by & exclusively for Stampin' Up!, it's going to be your new stamping best friend.

It's so fast and easy it is to create multi layer images like the butterfly above, using clear mount rubber or photopolymer stamps.  Don't get a complete image first time you stamp? You can re-stamp for a perfect image. Make more cards, quicker, to help you send lots more handmade love and it's truly a stamping game-changer.

Stampin' Blends markers are coming - colour me happy!

Have you heard the exciting news yet? Our new Stampin' Blends™ range of alcohol markers will be available for everyone to order on November 1st - just 10 days away. Yippee! I'm so excited.

Demonstrators were able to order Blends earlier this month (yes we're spoiled), so of course I had to get them all. So pretty! I've been having so much fun playing over the past week to get to know them better & am really loving creating with them. I think you'll love them too.

The Colours

There are 12 Stampin' Up!® exclusive colours in the range so far, each with a light and dark marker. To my eye, the dark marker is usually 'the' SU colour & the light marker is a lighter blendable shade. 
Each colour will be available as a single marker or in a two marker combo pack. Two additional single marker colours will be available (ivory & bronze) plus a clear Color Lifter.
You can also buy the lot together! (Happy Christmas anyone?)

I've made this quick sampler to show all the colours. As well as being good colouring practice, my colour loving self just wants to look at how pretty they are.This was a first attempt so don't look too closely at my blending. Huge thanks to fellow demonstrator Shannon Jaramillo for sharing this fabulous idea.

Seasonal leaves for World Card Making Day

Happy World Card Making Day! I hope you're getting some crafty time today or over the weekend. Today I'm sharing a couple of leafy cards using the Colorful Seasons stamp & die bundle.

 By happy coincidence, the layout is very similar to yesterday's sketch challenge card, but with natural, Autumn (Fall) feel, thanks to the paper colours & gorgeous leaves. And how fabulous is the sentiment? I love that it can apply to lots of different occasions, birthdays, engagements, weddings, anniversaries, babies etc.

Both the Wood Textures & Color Theory paper stacks I've used are part of our buy 3, get a 4th pack free October offer. The Colorful Seasons stamp set is 15% off until October 10th, as part of our World Card Making Day Deals too. See all the deals here.
