Rise & Shine – Coming Soon

It might be a little too early to start talking about the new products that will be a part of Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-Bration release in March, but…I couldn’t NOT play with my new goodies. Demonstrators are able to now pre-order the new products (and they are great!), and I’m excited to share my first project with these new goodies. Here’s my card that showcases the Rise & Shine stamp set:

Rise & Shine, Stampin Up!, Brian KingThe layout for my card is inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. Such fun! Here’s the banner for Chrissy Larson’s sketch that inspired my card:


Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Rise & Shine. If you picked up the Cup of Cheer Dies from Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Holiday Catalog, then you will certainly want to earn the Rise & Shine stamp set, available as a Sale-a-Bration option starting March 3. If you didn’t pick up the Cup of Cheer Dies, then you will still want to earn the stamp set and pick up the dies in the Holiday Favorites section of the online store (click here to review all the Holiday carryovers). Here’s a look at the sweet images and sentiments in the Rise & Shine stamp set that can be earned with a $100 order starting on March 3:Rise & Shine,Rise & Shine, Stampin Up!, 152303And here’s a look at the Cup of Cheer Dies that you can still purchase if you want them (and I know you do): Cup of Cheer Dies, Stampin Up!, 151150
  • Random Sprinkling.  The sentiments in the Rise & Shine stamp set are pretty incredible. I love this “You’ve got this but first” sentiment. So clever! To create a collage behind my mug, I stamped coffee over and over with Smoky Slate: Rise & Shine, Stampin Up!, Brian KingSome of the words are stamped with a full inking of Smoky Slate, while some are stamped off once first. I stamped them all in the same direction to ensure the recipient would still see that it’s coffee in the mug. 🙂 I stamped the sunburst from the Rise & Shine stamp set around the circle on the mug and added a Real Red heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies. ♥
  • Fresh Colors. Coastal Cabana is such a bright, cheery color – perfect for a rise & shine mug, don’t you think? I really love this mix of Smoky Slate, Coastal Cabana and Real Red. If you like it as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference: Stampin Up! Color Inspiration - Smoky Slate, Coastal Cabana, Real Red

Stamp Sets: Rise & Shine  Papers: Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Whisper White  Inks: Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate, Memento Tuxedo Black  Accessories: Cup of Cheer Dies, Stitched Be Mine Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I hope you’ll pop over to the CAS(E) This Sketch site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.

I’ll be sharing more about these soon-to-come products in Stampin’ Up!’s Second Release of Sale-a-Bration options. Please come back. ♥
