Beautiful Jar of Flowers

Hello and welcome! Today I want to share the beautiful Jar Of Flowers bundle with you. This lovely stamp and punch bundle will be available to purchase starting June 3rd when the brand new Stampin’ UP! Annual Catalogue goes live.

I absolutely adore this bundle!

Fresh-picked flowers in canning jar vases are one of the simple joys of summer. This fun Jar of Flowers bundle brings you a version that stays fresh forever!

The pretty floral images in this stamp set are so much fun to colour and isn’t that mason jar super adorable? Can you spot the brand new in-colours too?

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, Sunflowers are one of my favourite flowers so of course I started with them!! This card starts with a Just Jade card base, a layer of Gray Granite cardstock and Whisper White for stamping. That beautiful Just Jade gingham ribbon is from the Flowers For Every Season ribbon combo pack which will also be available June 3rd.

The ‘Just Because’ sentiment is from another great new product that you can look forward to seeing in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. This stamps set is called Lovely You and features many great sentiments in a fun, fresh font.

Mason Jar Shaker Cards

These next 2 cards both feature the Mason Jar Shaker Domes which perfectly coordinate with the Jar punch. Shaker cards are so much fun to make and these little shaker domes make them easy too!!

Love them!!!

The card on the right showcases three of the new In-Colours … Magenta Madness card base, Just Jade cardstock behind a layer of Misty Moonlight Designer Series Paper. I have used a few Flowers for Every Season gems inside the shaker dome and enamel dots atop the sentiment flag.

Shaker card on the left starts with a Misty Moonlight card base, a layer of BumbleBee cardstock and 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon. Inside this shaker dome I enclosed a pinch of multi coloured sequins. The words stamped in the background are from the current Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set … a must have that covers any and all occasions.

If you have fallen in love with these fabulous new 2020-2022 In-Colours and would like to add them all to your crafting collection please check out the new In-Colour Club here. Last day to register to be part of the club is Monday June 1st.

Thank you so much for popping in today. I hope that these cards and products have you excited for the release of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.

Happy Monday … take care, stay safe and be CREATIVE!!

New 2020-2022 In-Colour Club

Hello and welcome!! Today I am super excited to announce that the new 2020-2022 In-Colour Club registration is now OPEN!

These beautiful new In-Colour products will be released in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue on June 3rd. By joining this club you will add all 5 of these gorgeous new colours to your crafting collection! The club will run for 5 months and each month you will receive a kit featuring one of these five new in-colours. When the club ends in October you will have the whole collection

What’s in the In-Colour Monthly Kit?

Each month your fabulous 2020-2022 In-Colour Club kit will include the following:

  • 24 sheets of 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock
  • Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill
  • Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack (2 markers – light and dark)*
  • 8 sheets of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper
  • 2 yards of 1/4″ Twill Ribbon
  • Colour Coach card
  • Supplies to make the card of the month

*Stampin’ Blends do not come in Bumblebee so for that kit you will receive a full package of In-Colour Enamel Dots instead.

What are the Details?

This exciting New In-Colour Club will start in June and run through until October 2020. Upon registering you are committed to the full five months. The cost of the monthly kit is $60 (+ shipping if you do not live locally.) The last day to register is Sunday May 31st.

Payment for the club will be due on the 1st of each month starting June 1st. Payment can be made by e-transfer, credit card, or cash.

With the current situation that we are all facing (COVID_19 ) we will not be meeting in person for this club. I will however, be hosting an exclusive monthly ZOOM meeting on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00pm. This will give us a chance to virtually be together to chat and create the card of the month.

Stampin’ UP! does not allow me to pre-stamp images to be included with kits of any kind, so here is how we will deal with that. I will have the card designed ahead of time and prior to the payment deadline on the 1st I will release which stamp set I will be using for that month’s card. You can then decide if you would like to add it on to your monthly kit. If you do not, that is totally fine as I’m sure that you will have something in your stamp stash that you can use instead :).

Once the products arrive and I have the monthly kits assembled I will contact you to make arrangements to get it to you. If you do not live locally then the kit will be mailed.

Register Now

I hope that you love these colours as much as I do and are excited to be a part of my first “Virtual” In-Colour Club. Contact me to register and mark your calendars, we are going to have a lot of fun 🙂

Thanks for stopping by … Happy Friday!

New Colours & Creative Challenge

Happy Friday everyone!! Welcome to my blog and thanks for stopping by. Today I want to talk about the brand new In-Colours that are coming soon and introduce you to my new weekly Creative Challenge.

One of the perks of being a Stampin’ UP! Demonstrator is that I get a sneak peek of the new catalogues a month ahead of their release date and I get to do a product pre-order!!! Happy dance time 🙂 Well this week it was pre-order time and I am so excited to get some fun new products to share with all of you.

The highlight of the new Annual Catalogue for me is always the 5 new In-Colours. This year I am in LOVE with them all. They are fabulous … like “knocked-them-out-of -the-park awesome!!!” Let me show you …

Aren’t they gorgeous!? Being a pink loving girl I would have to say that Magenta Madness is my favourite but after that they are all in second place. I would love to hear which one you fancy the most … leave me a comment to let me know!!

In-Colour Club

Next week I am going to be rolling out the details of my monthly In-Colour club. I am still in the process of getting it all sorted out. What I can tell you for sure is that the club will run June – October and will be a virtual club.

Stay tuned for more information next week! I hope that you are as excited as I am to get your crafty little hands on these amazing new colours.

Are You Up For A Challenge?

A few weeks back I posted a creative challenge on my Birdsnest Designs Facebook page. It was great to see that so many of you are crafting away and making beautiful projects.

I want to start a weekly creative challenge that I will post every Friday here on my blog and on Facebook. How fun it will be to see all of the creativity come together. Challenges will vary. They may be a suggested colour combination, a specific stamp set or image, it may even be a sketch. If you participate in the challenge post your creation in your social media outlet or on my Birdsnest Designs Facebook page using the hashtag #cwbcreativechallenge. If you don’t use social media no worries email it to me and I’ll post it for you.

Everyone that posts their project that week will be entered in to a random draw for a prize!! How fun is this going to be??

Challenge #1

Let’s start this off with a colour challenge. With the introduction of the fabulous new In-Colours it means we are saying goodbye to 5 as well. The 2018-2020 In-Colours are all being retired so let’s celebrate one of them in Challenge #1!

Your challenge is to create using one of the colour combinations below, You can make whatever you want … a card, scrapbook layout even a home decor piece. If you don’t have these exact colours in your craft stash don’t fret – use whatever you have that is close… let’s all get in on the fun!

Show me your Lovely Lipstick creations!! Remember to post your project with #cwbcreativechallenge. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!!

Have a fabulous weekend. Take care, stay safe and be creative!!
