2021-2023 IN COLOR CLUB – May 2021 to September 2021

What is an “In Color” Club? 

You’ll receive all the “In Color” products for one “In Color” each month. Each month will feature a different color! My “In Color” Club will run for 5 months (May – September). By signing up, you are committing to participate for ALL 5 months. It’s like Christmas in your mailbox five months in a row! 

Your monthly “In Color” kit will include:

1 ink pad
2 Stampin’ Blends (light and dark)
4 full sheets (8 half sheets if mailing) cardstock (8-1/2” x 11”)
8 sheets – Designer Series Paper (6×6)
1 Ombre Gift Bag
1 sheet – Shimmer Vellum (6×6)
2 yards – 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon
20 Jewels
1 hand-stamped card featuring the “In Color” that you receive that month
BONUS PRODUCT – Loose Flower Flourishes with the last month!

After 5 months, you will have all of these products in all 5 new “In Colors”

You can get all of this for only $40.00, (plus shipping) each month.
If you are local, you can save the shipping cost and do front deck pick-up.

Per Stampin’ Up! policy, to order, you need to sign up for my “In Color” Club with an email and I will invoice you each month on the 1st.  You are able to pay either through E-transfer or through PayPal each time (note you can pay with your credit card through Paypal if you wish). I can ship anywhere in Canada with shipping (via Canada Post) extra.

Please note you are committing to 5 months! 
Your invoice must be paid either through E-transfer or PayPal, 
by the 5th of each month, starting in May.

Once you sign up below, you’re on my official list! I will be back in touch on May 1st with your first month’s invoice. Your “In Color” supplies will be on their way to you the third week of each month May through September. (Please note that with COVID-19 and current shipping challenges, items may be delayed from Stampin’ Up!! Assuming there is not a significant delay, I will hold onto the order and ship it all together once I receive the delayed items.  If some items are back-ordered, they will be shipped with your next month’s products.)

I’ve created a handy PDF document below with everything you need to know!

Got DSP? Quickly Make these Masculine Cards!

Masculine birthday cards

I’m often asked for ideas to make masculine cards. Recently I discovered this design, pulled out my World of Good Designer Series Paper and got to work! I was surprised at how quickly I was able to complete these 6 cards and get them into my “Birthday Box”!!

Let’s start with cardstock…

Choose a coordinating cardstock for the base and background layers. It’s easy to pick this layer because when you look on the back of the DSP package, you’ll find a list of the colours that Stampin’ Up! used in the Designer Series Papers. Now you’re set!

Start by cutting the cardstock for the card base at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score at 4-1/4″, fold and burnish with the bone folder. For the other layers, cut 1 at 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ and 1 at 4″ x 2-3/4″. I also punched out a scalloped oval, using the Double Oval Punch (154242) to coordinate with the card base on each card. This will be the background layer for the greeting.

Pick your favourite DSP…

Cut 1 at 5-1/4″ x 4″, 1 at 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ and 1 at 3-3/4″ x 2-1/2″. To save DSP, you could cut all 3 layers from the same piece by cutting both smaller rectangles from the centre of the largest piece.
Cut 1 at 6″ x 2-1/4″ to decorate your envelope flap.

Greetings are needed…

Everyone has a birthday so I’ve used “Happy Birthday” from the Oval Occasions Stamp Set (154477) with the Classic Ink that coordinates with the cardstock. Use the Double Oval Punch (154242) to punch out the greeting – attach to the scallop oval with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Putting it all together…

Fold and score the 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ card base
Attach the DSP cut at 5-1/4″ x 4″
Attach the DSP cut at 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ to the cardstock cut at 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ – use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the card front
Attach the DSP cut at 3-3/4″ x 2-1/2″ to the cardstock cut at 4″ x 2-3/4″ – use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the card front
Attach the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals
