Joke

 

Story of Adam & Eve's Dog
Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with us every day.  Now we do not see you anymore.  We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us. "
 
And God said, "I will create a companion for you that will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you so that you will love me even when you cannot see me.  Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable, you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves."
 
And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve.  And it was a good animal and God was pleased.
 

Unnamed
 
And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail.
 
And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."
 
And God said, "I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."
Unnamed (1)

 
And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and loved them.
 
And they were comforted.
And God was pleased.
And Dog was content and wagged his tail.
http://static.tinyletter.com/AZJunk/img/beam/5018593/1image.png
After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride.  They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration.  Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well."
 
And God said, "I will create for them a companion who will be with them and who will see them as they are.  The companion will remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration."
 
And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve. 
Unnamed (2)

 
And Cat would not obey them.  And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's eyes, they were reminded that they were not the Supreme Beings.
Unnamed (3)

 
And Adam and Eve learned humility. 
And they were greatly improved.
Unnamed (4)

And God was pleased.
And Dog was happy.
Unnamed (5)

  And the Cat . . . 
Unnamed (6)

didn't give a damn one way or the other…….

This card uses a Pool Party card base with Pool Party ink stamped boats on the card front. I added the starfish with Crumb Cake ink on the white note card front and the little THANKS.

And then I made this cute gift card holder with one of the note card envelopes. Again I stamped Crumb Cake starfish on the card front.

Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

Wait...WHAT?

Here's another twist to the BLACK EMBOSS RESIST technique! I used colored ink for the flowers.  I love this layout!!! You might remember it from a card I made yesterday!!!! It's so easy and I love the way the strip of paper across the front makes the images pop.

www.AStampAbove.com

Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry and Berry Burst tulips look fabulous together! Peekaboo Peach is retiring....sniff sniff!

  www.AStampAbove.com

 

Here's a video tutorial showing you how to make the BLACK EMBOSS RESIST technique with colored ink:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.

Dimensions:

  • Berry Burst 11" x 4-1/4" scored at 5-1/2" & scrap
  • Whisper White 4" x 5-1/4" & scrap 
  • Basic Black 3-1/2" x 4-3/4"
  • Petal Passion DSP 1/2" x 4"

Joke

 

A man went to the Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, to have his wedding ring cut off his hog wobbler.
According to the nurse attending the procedure, the patient's girlfriend found the ring in his pants pocket.
She didn't know he was married and she was so mad she used petroleum jelly to slip the ring on while he was asleep.
 
I don't know what's worse:
 
1. Having your girlfriend find out you're married...
2. Explaining the ring placement to your wife....OR...
3. Finding out your hog wobbler fits through your wedding ring.
 
Tough call… You decide.

New Color Revamp

www.AStampAbove.com

THE COLORS ARE EVOLVING!

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When we see changes happening, we review our color spectrum to ensure that we remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!

In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, we decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover.

With this revamp, you’ll not only have new products, but also have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting. Read on for more information!

I made a video to help explain all the new features and show you the new INK PADS!!! I think you're going to love them! This is from an impromptu Facebook Live video:

2018 INK INFORMATION

Yes, it will fit into the Color Caddy–just not as tightly as the previous ink pad style. If you’ve stored the updated pads in your caddy, you’ll want to be careful when rotating the caddy and not turn it too fast. We are working on a new storage solution for the updated Classic Stampin’ Pad case and do not yet have a launch date.

In addition to new colors, we also redesigned our ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and we've improved the formula of the ink, as well! We think you will love these changes! As you may have noticed, we’ve improved our ink pad cases and ink formula! The redesigned case and formula turned out exactly as we hoped. With change, there are often questions, and we wanted to provide you with information:

Why did we change the case?

The case’s manufacturing mold was about to expire. We can only use a mold a limited number of times before we need to replace it, so we had to decide if we wanted to order more of the same molds or try to improve the design. We chose to improve it!

We wanted to align the updated case with the color refresh and improvements to our ink. In addition, we chose to time these changes with Stampin’ Up!’s rebranding and packaging updates. This way, when you invest in the new colors, you are also getting the new and improved ink pads at the same time! We wanted to make these updates and changes in a way that was most cost efficient for you.

What’s better about the case?

Using research, focus group feedback, and comments in the Product Sandbox, we discovered a few things that could improve the design of the Classic Stampin’ Pad case.

We wanted the new case to:  

  • Be less confusing to open. Opening the new ink pad case is now more simple and intuitive—just insert your thumb in the lip at the front of the case and lift it to open.
  • Have a tighter fit between the lid and the base. With the new design, the lid doesn’t accidentally become disconnected, which was a common problem with the old case style. With use, the lid will be easier to slide open and close.
  • Be stackable. The ability to stack the cases makes them easier to store and transport. We designed a nub in each bottom corner that fits nicely into the dimple on the top of another case. Tip: Removing the label stickers from the bottom of the case (after applying the needed labels to the case) also makes the ink pads stack a little better.
  • Include improved labels and stickers. Here are a few of the ways we’ve done that:
    • The top label now has a cleaner, bolder design and a larger color swatch, making it easier to see the ink’s color.
    • The stickers include a new In Color icon.
    • We’ve continued to provide color  stickers that can be placed on the end of each case to easily identify the ink’s color at a glance.
    • We’re introducing a new color sticker you can place on the inside of the case, so you can easily distinguish the ink’s color when the case is open.

How is the ink different?

We improved our ink formula because we noticed that our old ink would sometimes bubble, especially on new pads and with lighter colors. When this happened, the ink wasn’t as even and smooth when stamped as we’d like to see it.

The improved ink formula will:

  • Reduce ink bubbles.
  • Help you get a smooth coating of ink on the stamp.
  • Help lay down the ink better.

How do I know if my Classic Ink Refill has the new and improved ink?

Beginning with the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog, all ink refills will have the improved ink formula. Also, once you order an ink refill and it has the new branding label, it contains the improved ink formula.

Can I use an old ink refill on a new ink pad or a new ink refill on an old ink pad?

Yes! You absolutely can with the exception of the Basic Gray Archival and Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ inks. Archival and Classic inks should not be mixed. All other Classic Stampin’ inks will work fine.

Where is the archival ink?

Archival ink will no longer be part of our ink offering. Basic Gray will now be part of the Classic Stampin’ ink family. Please note that you cannot use an archival ink refill on the new Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad, as this will ruin the new ink pad. Only use Classic Stampin’ ink refills on Classic Stampin’ pads. Your best options for black ink pads are the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad, to use with Blends and general black stamping needs, and the Jet Black StāzOn Pad, to use for watercolor and nonporous surface stamping. Both will be part of our ink offering in the new catalog. We are confident that both the Memento and StāzOn pads are high-quality inks that perform to your needs.

Will the updated Classic Stampin’ Pad case fit in the Color Caddy?

Yes, it will fit into the Color Caddy–just not as tightly as the previous ink pad style. If you’ve stored the updated pads in your caddy, you’ll want to be careful when rotating the caddy and not turn it too fast. We are working on a new storage solution for the updated Classic Stampin’ Pad case and do not yet have a launch date.

I hope this information has been helpful! The new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog will be available from me in the later part of May! If you're long distance and you've placed an order with me of $50 or more in the last 6 months you will receive a catalog in the mail by the end of May. If you're local I will let you know as soon as they arrive at my house and I have them ready for pick up!!! Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions kelly@AStampAbove.com.
