Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop | Colour Revamp

Paper Adventures - Blog Hop Header

Thanks for joining us for the monthly Paper Adventures blog hop.

Tonight’s theme is the Color Revamp.  As part of the new catalogue, Stampin’ Up! did a complete shake up of the colour range.  We saw favourite colours retired, retired favourites return and got new colours to love.  You can read more about the details here – click here.

There’s 53 colours in the range – 10 In Colors, 10 Neutrals, 10 Brights, 10 Subtles, 10 Regals & 3 Basics

Although I love the variety within and between each of the colour collections, my long-time favourite collection has been Brights.

I think the revamp has given it a fun shake up.  4 colours remain in the collection, 4 colours moved to the Regals collection 2 colours retired and we saw 6 new colours join the Brights family.

3 of these were returning In Colors (Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana) and 3 are new (Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape).

I have two projects to share with you tonight.

The first uses all 10 colours in the rainbow order they appear in the catalogue.  Previously Stampin’ Up! has used alphabetical order to arrange the colours.  The Color Revamp brings us a beautiful rainbow effect for each collection!

I’ve paired the colours from the Brights Collection with an elephant silhouette.  This oh-so-cute punch & coordinating Little Elephant stamp set is a new addition to my collection from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

How beautiful is that rainbow???

Do you have a favourite colour???  It’s hard to choose, and probably depends on my mood.  At this moment in time, my favourite new colour is Granny Apple Green, my favourite returning colour is Coastal Cabana and my favourite carry over colour is Bermuda Bay!!!


The second project I am sharing today is a set of thank you cards I made to send out with my DSP & Ribbon Product Shares this week.  Curious about how to get all the paper & ribbon without spending $$$???  Click here to see the post on my 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue Product Shares.

Inspired by the pretty colours of the Brights collection, and other new things I was itching to play with, I created this set of cards using the 6 ‘new/returning’ Brights.

When making cards to go with orders, I like to show them what products they might have admired in the catalogue actually look like.

This card features the stars pattern from the Bokeh Dots stamp set, the dreamcatcher from the Follow Your Dreams stamp set and the thank you stamp from Love What You Do stamp set.

The panel on the left is embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  It’s a little tricky to see what it looks like in the catalogue, so I wanted to share how beautiful it looks in person.

These cards were so easy to make using my Stamparatus.  I was able to set the position and ink each layer several times to get some great depth of colour – and ensure an even inking.on the background stamp.

There’s so many amazing new products a part of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.  I look forward to sharing more with you over the coming months.  Click here to browse the online store.

Next up on the hop is our guest designer – Sara Levin.  Thanks to Sara for joining us.  You’re going to love what she’s made!!!

Sharing What We Love

Year by year, our Paper Adventures team continues to grow as Stampin’ Up! loving crafters join the journey.  Some jump in feet first knowing they are going to love it.  Some take a little longer, but most of our team stay for a while to enjoy the team environment, fantastic discount and perks of being a demonstrator.

We celebrated another success in the team last month when Mary promoted to Bronze Elite. Mary’s 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue wishlist just became an even better deal with a 25% discount on all the Stampin’ Up! she orders.

I celebrate all the successes my team have with a card and gift.  This is the card I made for Mary using everyone’s favourite May pre-release suite – Share What You Love.

I added in the new Stitched Labels Framelits (available to demonstrators on pre-order now, and to customers from 1st June 2018) – they are oh-so-special!!!

And since Mary couldn’t make it to our demonstrator class last week, I made a Statement of the Heart frame for her craft room.

You’re going to love it – the designs, patterns and colours are beautiful!  There’s 3 products bundles available to purchase (see all the info at the end of this post).

Here’s some sweet projects I created with the Love What You Do stamp set, Pearlised Doilies, Share What You Love DSP, Share What You Love Pearls & Lovely Floral Embossing Folder – with some of my favourite colours!

The first card features the oh-so-pretty DSP (my favourite part of the suite) with a new In Color – Grapefruit Grove.

The second card is a mix of the gorgeous DSP and stamps from the Love What You Do stamp set.  The sentiments in this set lend themselves so nicely to the current trend of fussy cutting around the words.

The final card features the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder – gorgeous just as it is, or you can add some colour by brushing with your ink pad.  This is White Craft ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.
