Stampin' Up! Sweet Scoops: Chocolate Chip

Chocolate-Cone  

This Sweet Scoops card was my Controlfreaks Summer Mini Catalog swap last month.  I'm honored and humbled to be part of this awesome group of stampers!

Doesn't it look yummy enough to eat?  My Chocolate Chip ice cream cone was actually stamped with Close to Cocoa Classic Ink (retiring soon) and the "chips" were stamped with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink.  Then I covered it with Crystal Effects!

Another great new product from the Summer Mini Catalog is the Lattice Embossing Folder.  Isn't it sweet?  I used it on the background piece of Close to Cocoa cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Retiring Colors: Important News Update

Stampin' Up! Retiring Colors NEWS UPDATE:
(Please read carefully if you need to order retiring color products)

IMPORTANT DATES:
June 1 - Retiring colors available only “while supplies last”
June 1 -
Last Chance list of stamp sets and accessories will be available
June 30 - Last day to order any retiring product (if not out-of-stock)

With Stampin’ Up!’s recent Color Renovation announcement, we have experienced a spike–much greater than anticipated–in demand for some of our retiring colors. Even with the most careful planning and all of the company’s forecasts from previous color transitions and current buying behaviors, the demand was greatly underestimated.

For re-inkers in retiring colors, as we run out, they will be placed on backorder status and those orders will be filled as quickly as we receive the product. We will continue to do this to the best of our ability through May, and then the re-inkers will be available while supplies last in June.

Card stock presents a bit larger problem, and because of this, textured paper may be substituted for some of the smooth colors–including card stock in 8-1/2″ x 11″ as well as 12″ x 12″–where the smooth is no longer available. You will notice these colors go on backorder, and we will be filling as many of those as possible with textured card stock. Because the demand for each color varies, we are unable to provide a list of what colors of card stock will be substituted with textured, or at what point that will happen. However, if you receive a package of card stock that is textured instead of smooth, there will be a sticker on the package indicating that change.

To stock up on your favorites before they are gone forever, visit my Stampin' Up! store.

Stampin' Up! Colors to be Retiring on July 1st
Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Ballet Blue, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom, Bordering Blue, Brilliant Blue, Brocade Blue, Cameo Coral, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Gable Green, Glorious Green, Going Gray, Green Galore, Handsome Hunter, Lavender Lace, Lovely Lilac, Mellow Moss, Only Orange, Orchid Opulence, Pale Plum, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Sage Shadow, Summer Sun, Taken with Teal, YoYo Yellow. 

To stock up on your favorites before they are gone forever, visit my Stampin' Up! store.

We realize that this is an extraordinary situation, and we hope this will help you get retiring colors for as long as possible. Please keep in mind that an instance may arise where we are unable to fill orders on a specific product, and it will become unavailable before the end of May, but those cases should be minimal, and Stampin Up will communicate those situations as they may arise.

Thank you for your patience!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Springtime Mini Album Tin with Stampin' Up! 2-Step Bird Punch

Today I'm sharing a project my Hedgehog Scrapbook Club Members last month.  They each made this adorable Springtime Mini Album Tin.  Some received Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper (as shown in tin below) and others received Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper to make theirs.

Supplies:  Fancy Flower stamp set, Versamark Ink, Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink & Whisper White Cardstock, Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper, Punches: Corner Rounder, Scallop Border, Fancy Flower, 2-Step Bird, Fluerettes II, Sending Love Epoxy Brad, Pewter Jumbo Eyelets, Pretty in Pink Striped Ribbon, Paper Trimmer w/Scoring Blade, Embossing Buddy, Clear Embossing Powder, Powder Pal Tray, Heat Tool

Grouping-Photo

I love the detail of the embossed flowers on the cover of the tin.  See my tips below for embossing on metal/tin!

Dawns Stamping Tips - Embossing on Tin

1.  I used LOTS of powder from an Embossing Buddy (#103083, $5.95) to remove static from the tin.

2.  Then stamp, add clear embossing powder, melt with heat tool and let cool

3.  After cooling, remove excess Embossing Buddy powder with a swiffer sheet

Open

Guess what? 

I have a few Springtime Mini Album Tin kits left (w/Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper).  If you're interested - you may purchase a kit for $15, plus $3 shipping.  They do not come with instructions or stamping - just the photos you see here.  Included is all of the materials to complete your album, all punched elements, "bare" book is scored and Jumbo Eyelets are set.  The cover of the tin is not stamped or embossed.
