Tag Archives: Color and Contour Stamp Set
Have you ever tried ‘Triple Time Stamping’? It gives a fun look and is not hard to accomplish. You have three sizes of Basic White temporarily adhered together on which you stamp your images and then you pull them apart and add the borders. Easy peasy!
Color and Contour Triple Time Stamping Card (A)
If you love a water color look, you will love this stamp set. You actually have one stamp for the outline and one stamp for the coloring. The stamps for coloring do not color in the flowers perfectly, use a Blender Pen or Water Painter if you prefer a perfectly colored flower with a water color look or use a marker in the same color.
They are part of the set, Sal, take a look-see:
The Scalloped Contour Dies go with the set. Where you see the stamps with a pinkish color, that is showing a die that cuts that stamp. This die set is a must for your stash!
Best Butterflies Triple Time Stamping Card (B)
Design your own whimsical butterfly with the Best Butterflies stamp set! There’s big wings, small wings, big bodies, small bodies, big words, small words and triangles or dots for added interest! I used Fresh Freesia and Calypso Coral with Granny Apple Green on this card with a Fresh Freesia base. Those little flowers are Fun Flowers Resin Shapes and you could win a set by adding a comment to any blog post before August 31.
For the butterfly card I found it best to use the Stamparatus to stamp the images; with the added layers it is a bit hard to get the images to stamp completely so you need to stamp a second or third time. However, remember there is a border that will cover 1/8 inch of the image so don’t fret too much about those incomplete edges right next to a layer where the mat will be.
For the Best Butterflies card, use one plate for the butterfly bodies- stamp this first then mask, a second plate for the calypso coral wings and a third plate (or the back of your plate) for the fresh freesia wings. It makes a workshop go quickly to have them all aligned on different plates for perfect stamping. I had several butterfly body masks already fussy cut with our new Masking Paper to lay over the bodies before stamping the wings. Post it notes work pretty well if you don’t have the masking paper, just stamp the image on the post it note and fussy cut.
For the Color and Contour card, I mounted the stamps on acrylic blocks to give the stampers opportunity to stamp and color only what they wanted. I had an Evening Evergreen marker available so if the image wasn’t stamped clear to the edge we could use the marker to complete it, if we saw it was necessary after adding the border mats. I also had a Highland Heather marker so those who didn’t like the watercolor look could color in their flowers.
Secondly, start with stamping your greeting on the center layer, then stamp the images around the greeting.

The beauty, Sal, is all in the stamping and adding the borders!
For the Color and Contour card I used a Happy Birthday greeting from the Shaded Summer Stamp Set.
For the inside of the Best Butterflies card, I used a fussy cut butterfly from the Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper.
The Color and Contour card was one of the cards we made at the July Stamp Camp. The second card was made at a workshop. Contact me if you would like to hold a workshop and we will make a card as I introduce Stampin’ Up! to your friends. Text or call 303-815-0838.

SAL, Sharing A Love of stamping
Hello Stamping Friends,
May 4th marked the debut of our new Annual Catalog! It will run through May 2 of 2022.
Click on the catalog image here in this blog post for a pdf of the catalog. The pdf is also posted in the ‘Catalog’ tab on the blog so you can view the pdf anytime anywhere with a mobile device or computer.
In celebration I held the annual catalog launch with lots of goodies for the attendees.
They each received a catalog enjoyment kit – commonly called catalog survival kit, but that sounds like it is painful so I called it a catalog enjoyment kit!
Obviously, Sal, that’s why I love blogging!
(If you use this file in another year I suggest changing the green heading colors. I was trying to get Soft Succulent on Evening Evergreen but it was a bit hard to read.)
I found the perfect pouch at Walmart for the catalog and the ‘enjoyment’ kit and taped the above instructions on the outside. The pouch is the perfect size for the catalogs and it is plastic so it will protect the contents.
I couldn’t find the right size of clear envelope for the goodies so I used a page protector, cutting off the binder holes and wrapping the excess around the back. The wish list is a supply item available to demonstrators that is a pack of three wish lists. I used one page from each of the lists. I also added a set of catalog tabs from the supply items available to demonstrators.
There are lots of perks to being a demonstrator. Come talk to me!
I cut a piece of cardstock and used glue dots to attach all the goodies. The pen is from a pack of clear pens (Pentel RSVP brand); a small piece of the new hostess Pattern Party Designer Series Paper with hearts was rolled up and inserted in the pen. I even found emoji bandaids for a cute little smile! They do make individually wrapped lifesavers I found out, and of course Ghirardelli chocolates are a must as they are a tradition at my events.
Well, Sal, the joy of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators is that we CASE things – ‘copy and share everything’, and I have copied many many ideas from other demonstrators so it is only right that I provide ideas for my downline and other demonstrators that might be interested in casing what I have done. Some of my customers might even become demonstrators building a business and need ideas like this.
There are times I think that I am just using my blog as a digital scrapbook for myself and then I realize I haven’t left comments on the blogs that I follow, so perhaps there are those who do use the ideas even though, like me, they never leave comments.
I had a raffle bag, a crossword puzzle scavenger hunt, a make and take card with the new In Colors and the traditional bookmark using the new In Colors and an In Color swatch sheet.
The raffle bag included magnets, a shopping bag, a notebook and the bag was a Stampin’ Up! lunch bag. These are all supplies available to demonstrators. The punch is the new ‘Elegant Tag’ punch!
To enter they could complete the crossword puzzle, place an order and receive one ticket for each $10 of merchandise purchased, or purchase a ticket directly for $2.50.
I will draw on Tuesday the 25th at our Zoom meeting!
Take a look at the new In Colors they are so lovely! I loved them all this year and had to have all the inks and the ribbons and the markers and the blends and the paper – oh my! I usually just choose one or two to highlight at the launch but not this year!
This is the bookmark we made using the In Color DSP for little samples on the front. For the back we colored one of the sheets of the black and white Pattern Party Designer Series Paper available to hostesses. We colored the top with blends and the bottom with markers so they could see the difference and get familiar with the colors. (and fall in love with them!)
We did a make ‘n take using the Color and Contour bundle in the new catalog. They chose their color.
In the Catalog section of the demonstrator web site is a test to see which color you are. I am Fresh Freesia according to the test. What do you think? Another fun demonstrator perk!
Recipe for Make ‘n Take
- Base: Thick Basic White, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, Scored at 4 1/4
- In Color Layer: Fresh Freesia, 5 1/2 X 4 1/4, die cut with largest Scalloped Contour die

- Ribbon: 8″ of Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon

Stamp the flower from the Color and Contour stamp set in Evening Evergreen then do the second stamp in the Fresh Freesia. We call this two step stamping – no coloring! The ‘Thank You’ greeting is from the Pansy Patch stamp set in the new catalog. Wait until you see what we can do with that pansy set and the ….
You are right! That is for the next post.
Two important announcements from the home office:’
