Try It Thursday - New Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird Sneak Peak Card



Good Morning Everyone! My Try It Thursday share is another Sneak Peak Card from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog 2016-2017. This time I took the New Swirly Bird stamp set and coordinating Swirly Thinlits Dies to create a Sympathy Card. Ilina Crouse designed the original card. However, I change the colors, sentiment and a few other details to make it my own. I used the "wave" die in the Swirly Thinlits to form a vine. I then adhered scribble roses and leaves in the In Colors Sweet Sugar Plum and Mint Macaron. Next, I added a butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and a sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set. Finally, I embellished with Pearls. This is another card that can be used for a a variety of occasions. Plus, you can easily changed the color palette.

Card Measurements:
Tip Top Taupe Card Base: 4 1/4" x 11"
Mint Macaron Card Layer: 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White Card Layer: 5" x 3 3/4"

Paper: Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White

Ink: Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Sweet Sugar Plum

Stamp: Swirly Bird, Papillon Potpourri, Watercolor Wishes

Accessories: Swirly Thinlits Dies, Big Shot, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Pearls

Tuesday Tool - Stampin' Up! Trimmer (Precision Cutting And Scoring All In One Tool!)



Good Morning Everyone! Today's Tuesday Tool is the Stampin' Up! Trimmer. I have one and I love it! So many new features of this tool make it the best one on the market. The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you are cutting. The handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin and end. And, with the specially-designed insertion point, the handles snap into the track easily without bending or bowing the track itself-which helps to keep the track straight and rigid. Remember how frustrating it was to try and cut regular- sized cards on the old paper trimmer? With the new trimmer, the base has been extended so you can make most of your common cuts and measurements without extending the ruler!

Features of the All-New Stampin' Trimmer
  • An extra-wide 6-1/4" cutting base and an extended 14-1/2" ruler
    • The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked in 1/4" (4 mm) increments, allowing for small measurements. 
    • The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
    • The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts. 
    • When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across the entire surface.
    • The cutting base and track include a full ruler, incorporating measurements down to 1/16" and grid lines that mark each quarter inch. 
    • All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won't wear off.
    • The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin' Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
  • A full 12" cutting and scoring track
    • The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you don't have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you're not using them. 
    • The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 12" (30.5 cm) without having to remove or switch out handles. 
    • The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport. 
    • The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
  • Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
    • The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
    • Handles come in two colors: dark for cutting, light for scoring. 
    • The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you're cutting.
    • The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin.
  • Storage compartment under base
    • The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades, and even business cards. 
    • Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools organized, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you've stored.
