My name is Brandy Cox and I am a proud Stampin' Up Demonstrator. Stampin' Up has blessed my life and I get so much enjoyment out sharing my passion with others. Stampin Up has allowed me to discover a creative side I never knew that I had. I was always one of those girls that said "I'm not very crafty." But I quickly learned that we are all capable of creativity, it just takes the willingness to learn and experiment.

Here’s some key information to keep in mind about our color offering:

  • Colors will be updated in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.
  • Stampin Up has not made changes to the core color offering since 2013.
  • Stampin Up is plan is to update colors every three to five years.
  • Stampin Up will continue to introduce five new In Colors each year that are available for two years. The five existing In Colors from 2017-2019 will remain in our color offering. With this color revamp, we’re also introducing five new 2018-2020 In Colors.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Reasons for the Color Revamp

  • Stampin’ Up! has received a lot of feedback from demonstrators and customers who want to stay current, fresh, and on trend with our colors, and the color revamp will allow us to do that. One of our most popular requests from demonstrators is to bring back retired In Colors. This color revamp brings back some favorites!
  • In Colors have shown that new colors are a significant draw.
  • Sales data tell us what is popular and what’s not. Everyone has their favorite colors, but we can’t ignore the fact that some colors just don’t sell well even though they may be a favorite color for a very small group of people.
  • Color trends change over time and we want to keep our color offering fresh, new, and relevant. Cycling through diferent variations of color keeps our palettes fresh. Color trends are what keep us loving color and keep us excited about what will come next.
  • New colors open possibilities for color coordination and the opportunity for exciting new color combinations.

Recent Stampin’ Up! Color History

• Our last color revamp was in 2010 (eight years ago) when we changed many colors in our offering.

• Our last color refresh was in 2013 (five years ago) when we changed just a few core colors.

Blossoming Teapot – Video Tutorial

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text] 

Today’s Mother’s Day Card was designed using the Stampin Up A Mother’s Flair Stamp Set.  

The images in this set are clean and simple.  They are adorable standing along but I really wanted to dress them up.  Give them a classy Mother’s Flair!!

I used the teapot from this card to add interest to the background.  I did the same thing with the pretty hat and flower from the shoe card.  Sometimes it just takes stamping the image in the background to dress your card up and pull the card together.  I love it!!

Thank you for stopping by Brandy’s Cards.  I hope you enjoy my video tutorial!!

Blessings, Brandy[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][dt_default_button link="https://www.dropbox.com/s/kjvm4ixxcocgj7c/2018-BlossomingTeapot.pdf?dl=0" button_alignment="default" animation="fadeIn" size="medium" default_btn_bg_color="#333333" bg_hover_color="#444444" text_color="#ffffff" text_hover_color="#dddddd" icon_type="html" icon="fa fa-chevron-circle-right" icon_align="left" smooth_scroll="n" btn_width="btn_auto_width" custom_btn_width="200px" el_class="" css=""]Download Free Tutorial[/dt_default_button][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][vc_column_text]
