It’s hard to believe it’s time for the Mini Catalog Product Shares and the new Paper Resource Samplers, but the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog is right around the corner for our Fall and Holiday creating. The catalog is fantastic!
Now, I know choosing favorites can be hard, so I am here to make it easy! Choose a product share, and get a little of everything! I am also offering something new this year.
Paper Resource Samplers
If you join us for class in my classroom, you have seen these on display. These samplers are invaluable for actually seeing the papers and pulling projects together, as well as matching colors and embellishments. So much so, I have decided to offer them for anyone who would like a set!
Each collection set features all the designer papers, the catalog name and image, item number, price, detailed information as needed, and coordinating colors. Collections that are 12″ x 12″ are in a 4″ x 6″ resource, and 6″ x 6″ collections are left full size. And as an added bonus, when you are done with them, you can take them apart and use the paper!
Resource Sampler Options:
July – December Mini Catalog Resource Sampler Set (16 designer & specialty papers) $35
Annual Catalog Resource Sampler Set (13 designer series papers) $32
When you choose both sets, I am giving you a BONUS set FREE ($8.50 value) as my thank you. This set will have the host paper collections from the Mini and Annual catalogs with 12 papers each, plus the three Sale-a-bration paper collections.
Product shares are a way to get some of everything at a fraction of the investment. It provides a sampling of all the products so you can create with all of the collections. It is a great way to build variety in your stash. *It is important to note how your paper is cut, not just how many sheets you get. I like to leave the sheets larger (so fewer sheets), giving you more options for creating.
For the July – December Mini Catalog, I am again offering 3 product share options:
Designer Series Paper (1/4 pack)
Glimmer & Shimmer Specialty Papers (1/4 pack)
Ribbon & Embellishments (1/5 spool or pack)
BONUS: Get all 3 and choose a Sale-a-Bration item as my thank you!
Both paper shares will include 1/4 package of each paper collection listed. Most paper that is 12″ x 12″ will be cut 6″ x 12″ with occasional exception. Paper that is 6″ x 6″ is left full size. Paper size is cut to maximize pattern or to provide 1/4 pack. The Ribbon & Embellishment Share will include 1/5 of each ribbon or pack of embellishments listed, providing 1-2 yard cuts of each item listed. When you select the designer series paper, glimmer & shimmer, and ribbon & embellishment shares, you get to select a Sale-A-Bration item FREE as well, as my thank you!

Thanks for joining us for the June 2022 Color Fusers blog hop where I am sharing a Hope & Prayer In Color card set in the new 2022-2024 In Colors.
This card features a couple of my favorite stamp sets too, the Rays of Light Background stamp, and Hope & Prayer stamp set. They work so well together, and every color card looks great!
The In Color Collection features 5 colors which join the Stampin’ Up! color family each year. They remain available for 2 years before retiring. This year’s colors are bright and beautiful! This could possibly be my favorite In Color Collection ever!
Hope & Prayer
The Hope & Prayer stamp set features a combination of images and sentiments. I have paired an image stamped lightly behind the sentiment on today’s projects. I created the lighter image by inking my stamp, then stamping on scrap paper twice before stamping on my label.
And the Rays of Light Background stamp is amazing! I know I will be using this a lot!
Hope & Prayer In Color Card Set

Thank you for joining us today for the Color Fusers May 2022 blog hop where I am featuring a diorama card made with the Paradise Palms stamp bundle and ink blending technique.
As soon as I saw this month’s color combination, I thought beach, and knew exactly what I wanted to share with you!
The Paradise Palms stamp set and Palms dies coordinate, and provide the tools to create amazing beach scenes.
Blended Ink Background
To create this background, I used Blending Brushes, and the color challenge colors. Blending Brushes are may favorite way to add ink to backgrounds. They give you great control over color intensity and the ability for smooth color transition. Simply apply ink to the brush, and make small circular motions to apply the ink in light layers. Continue to build up color until you reach your desired color intensity.
For this background, I chose not to blend it entirely smooth, to represent the color variation of the sky.
The key to successful color blending is to use light pressure on the brush, and start your circular motion off the edge of your cardstock, so you don’t get blotchy color on your project.
use a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Balmy Blue card base scored at 4 1/4″
cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Balmy Blue for the embossed front layer
use a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Basic White for stamping and ink blending
prepare one Balmy Blue label
Using a Blending Brush, add color to the white layer. Stamp trees in Memento Black, and beach in Crumb Cake, then adhere to card front. Die cut a diorama opening from the Balmy Blue layer, then emboss with embossing folder of choice. Adhere over stamping using dimensionals. Stamp sentiment in Memento Black ink on a die cut label. Add Linen Thread to back of sentiment piece and adhere to card front. Embellish as desired using Faux Sea Glass Shapes.
