Last Chance Sunshine & Rainbows

Rainbow & Sunshine Invite

Today's share is a birthday invitation I created for our niece for her 2nd Golden Birthday. The theme was rainbows!! Super fun idea to do too! I've listed several options in my Etsy Shop for this invitation. Over the years I have had the privilege of making many different invitations, party decorations and etc. for many special events. Handmade decorations and invites make the occasion even more special and it's been so fun to be part of the planning of these events! I've done birthday, retirement, graduation, birth announcements, baptisms, christmas, bachelorette, bridal showers, baby showers, wedding, going away, teacher workshops, bible camps and retreats, welcome home, summer bbq and etc. If you would like invites or decorations please feel free to email rubberredneck@gmail.com

Today is the last day to get this bundle from the Occasions Catalog! I am so said this didn't get carried over but at least I have it to add to my collection ;) By purchasing it in a bundle you will save 10% too! Sunshine & Rainbows Photopolymer Bundle item #145983.

Please Note: I always change out all the personal information on invites before sharing on any social media sites.

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • I cut a piece of Real Red card stock for the base.
  • Choose your font and print out the details onto Whisper White card stock.
  • Ink up the star stamps from Little One Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight and randomly stamp onto the Whisper White card stock.
  • Die cut out the rainbow pieces using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies in Pacific Point, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive.
  • Die cut out the clouds using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Rainbow Builder Framelits in Whisper White card stock and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper.
  • Sponge some Soft Sky ink onto the Whisper White card stock to make them stand out more.

Stampin' Up! Color Revamp

Color-revamp_demo_header_usca

Have you heard? Stampin' Up! is doing a Color Revamp and I am doing a happy dance! Stampin' Up! is updating their core color collections as well as updating the new Ink Pads!! AWESOME SAUCE!! Of course we also get 5 New In Colors! Here are the details.

  • There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.
  • In order to keep the color collections exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, they moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. They also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful (I am thrilled about this change)!
  • Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. You can refer to the old and new color charts in the 2018-2019 catalog when it’s released on June 1.

Color Revamp Charts & Summary PDF

New Ink Pad

NEW CLASSIC STAMPIN' PADS

In addition to new colors, Stampin’ Up! redesigned their ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and they improved the formula of the ink, as well! I tried the new design at Onstage and they are FABULOUS I love them!

Why the change to the case?

The case’s manufacturing mold was about to expire. Stampin’ Up! can only use a mold a limited number of times before they need to replace it, so they had to decide if they wanted to order more of the same molds or try to improve the design. They chose to improve it!  Yay!

Stampin’ Up! wanted to align the updated case with the color revamp and improvements to the ink. In addition, they chose to time these changes with Stampin’ Up!’s re-branding and packaging updates. This way, when you invest in the new colors, you are also getting the new and improved ink pads at the same time!

What’s better about the case?

  • Less confusing to open
  • Tighter fit between the lid and the base
  • Stack-able
  • Improved labels and stickers

How is the ink different?

  • Reduced ink bubbles
  • Smoother coating of ink on the stamp
  • Improved ink coverage
  • You can re-ink the new ink pads with old re-inkers, you just won’t get the benefit of the defoamer that’s been added to the new re-inkers. The only exception to this is, you don’t want to use the Archival Basic Gray Re-inker on the new pads because it will ruin it.

April is my normal crazy hectic month worse than Christmas (how is that possible even lol) Hubby and I went to Wisconsin and I attended Onstage were I got the New Catalog!! I had a blast! It was AWESOME!!! I'll have more about that this next week.

After getting back we started working on a lot of projects and they are taking way longer than we thought they would. lol Then I had several teeth break apparently I didn't have a good dentist, that lead me to a new dentist and some very not good news. Ughh I've had to have lots of major work done the past two months which has resulted to lots of pain, not being able to eat much and some pretty nasty migraines thus why I've been missing. Make sure you have a good dentist!!

Stampin' Up! released the Retiring List: It's that time of the year. Out with the Old and in with the New!! The Stampin' Up! Retired List has been released. Lots of items going so you'll want to get them before they are gone forever. Remember these items are while supplies last ONLY. Retiring stamps will be available at least through May 25, 2018.  Retiring accessories (designer series paper, dies, punches, ribbon and more) are ONLY AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.Some of the bundles are retiring however some of the product is being carried over to the new annual catalog (starts June 1). They will only be offered individually and no longer available for the 10% off the bundle so I recommend if there is a bundle you want on the retired list get it to save the 10%.

Ready to Pop Stamp Set
Ready to Pop Stamp Set

  Today's project features 2 of the items on the retiring list the Ready to Pop Photopolymer Stamp Set & Popcorn Box Thinlit. I love these two items and I am sad to see them go since I really thought they were very versatile. I also used them to create one of the gifts I made for our family.

Did you know there is a National Popcorn Day? I sure did not! lol When I saw it listed, I knew I wanted to do it immediately because I owned this set and die and because I LOVE popcorn. I actually pop it like how my family did when I was a kid on the stove in a pan. I just use Olive Oil instead of vegetable oil sometimes we melt butter and put it on there too. This was one of the family gifts for our year of gifts. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board  Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.

The popcorn bowl came from Target's dollar spot. I walked in and there they were exactly 5 on the shelf left. WOW and too funny, they were $5 a piece but we both thought they were cool and wanted to included them. They were heavy and nice well worth the $5. I found read clear jars from the dollar spot at target and filled them with popcorn seeds. We also add microwave popcorn and some butter sprinkle stuff. I decorated the microwave popcorn with a bell band.

Here is a top view to see inside the bowl better.

Using the Ready to Pop Stamp Set I stamped the images then die cut them out using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Popcorn Box Thinlits and Layering Ovals Framelits. Is this not stinkin cute? I then created the popcorn box out of Whisper White card stock again using the Big Shot Die cut Machine and the Popcorn Box Thinlit. I cut strips of Real Red card stock to make it look like the old time popcorn container. I had some left over red straws from the christmas gifts so I added them to the gift to. Overall the gift cost us around $15 per family not to bad if you would like to make this as a gift idea down the road.

Here is one that Stampin' Up! made using the Popcorn Box Thinlit.

I am giving you a sneak peek of the new In Colors and two of my favorite new greens!! This year's In Colors are beautiful, however I am not a huge fan of bright colors I am more of an earth tone gal but WOW they actually are awesome to work with and perfect for this set too. Lots of layers to this baby and why yes all those leaves and flamingo were cut out by hand thanks to my awesome husband ;) I also used some other new items that will be in the new catalog. I sure am gonna miss this set.
