Mojo Monday & a Sneak Peek

Stampin up mojo monday favorite thoughts

Let the Mojo Monday magic begin!  Today's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO134) offers a perfect panel for sharing one of the delightful sentiments from Favorite Thoughts, a sneak peek stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog (available May 1).

  • Stampin up mojo monday benjamin moore I confess.  I occasionally swoop paint brochures for paper crafting color inspiration when I'm shopping at the hardware store.  I translated the Benjamin Moore palette to Stampin' Up! Cameo Coral, Mellow Moss and Close to Cocoa.
  • For a sophisticated touch, I added a scallop edge border to the envelope flap.  Trim the flap first to get a straight edge.
  • New punches alert!!!  Isn't the tiny four petal punch sweet?  Itty Bitty Bits stamp set and three coordinating Itty Bitty Shapes punches will be at the top of your Summer Mini Catalog Wish List.
  • Bookmark "Stampin' Pretty Summer Mini Sneak Peeks"  to see my growing samples of the upcoming products all in one place.

WHAT COLORS ARE IN?  A collection of fresh and fashionable colors are on the way!  Starting July 1 (with the release of the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog), many Stampin' Up! colors will be retiring, In Color favorites will return and join the regular line-up and a new burst of color choices will appear (in addition to the new In Color collection).

Mellow Moss, Close to Cocoa and Cameo Coral used on today's card will retire on July 1.  Stock up now or consider the alternative combination of River Rock, Soft Suede and Melon Mambo (all part of the Stampin' Up! New Color Collections on July 1).  

STAY TUNED:  Tomorrow my Stampin' Pretty Pals and I will bring you a parade of ideas with our Mother's Day Pals Hop.

  2. What a gorgeous combination! It’s funny where we get our inspiration from. I use “Pumpkin Patch” kids clothes catalogues … or furniture catalogues. But … Paint collections is genius! All these goodies that you have coming in the mini sound wonderful. I wonder how long we have to wait for them in AUS??? Stampin’ Hugs, Andrea xxx
