Stampin’ Up! Welcome to the Team!

What are your Favorite Stampin’ Up Colors? What are your favorite stamp sets?

I have to say that my favorite colors are Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Lovely Lipstick. Yet, I LOVE all the 2018 to 2019 In-Colors!

So for today’s cards I chose 3 stamp sets, but one layout. When I was going through the catalog one of the stamp sets I had to have was “Welcome to the Team” on page 88 (#149388 $17.00) and “Birthday Backgrounds” page 63 (#151260 $18.00). I love the layout using my favorite colors. So I cased the card below and then did 2 more versions.

For the next 2 cards I used “Piece of Cake” on page 64 (#148610 $17.00) and “Lilypad Lake” Stamps page 150 ($151272 $22.00) and “Lakeside” Framelit Dies on page 193 (#146351 $27.00) I had so much fun with these.

Here is a list of products I used:

Come Sail Away…

I just Love, Love, Love this bundle! It reminds me of when we were kids and we would go visit my aunt who had lived in an apartment building on the east side of Milwaukee 2 blocks from Lake Michigan. We would take the elevators up to the sixth floor and look out onto the lake and watch the sail boats. And then of course my brothers would run up and down the hallways while I stared out at the lake!!

Below are cards I made using the Sailing Home bundle.

Inside of the top card.
I made this inside the same for both the card above and below.
I used brads for the dial on the compass.

If you can’t see the images below, you can go to my home page for a complete list and you can click on the items in the list to purchase the products I used for these cards.

New to Stampin’?

Well, guess what? Stampin’ Up has come out with a new brochure for people new to stamping, you can view here!

With fun projects and kits made with beginners in mind, you’ll fall in love with the endless creativity! Order the brochure now!

When someone’s new to stamping it can seem a little overwhelming—too many products with not enough help can keep you from purchasing anything. So Stampin’ Up created a brochure with products and kits designed especially for the beginner. Now, anyone can have an easier time deciding where to start!

The brochure aims to accomplish four things:

  1. Introduce you to the company, products, and culture.
  2. Offer a simple ordering experience.
  3. Provide products that will give you a successful stamping experience.
  4. And finally, I hope the brochure and my support will encourage you to start Stampin’!

When ordering and if your order is below $150.00 please use the host code FZ9HDEKY. This way I can send you a card and a free card kit. If your order is over $150.00 you will be the host and can purchase free products with the host rewards.

Please contact me at Like2stamp@aol.com if you have any questions or would like me to send you your Brochure or your own catalog.

Thanks again for stopping by.

Everything is Rosy

Hello! Well the weather is finally warming up. It’s 70’s today, but unfortunately 40’s and 50’s the rest of the week here.

Yesterday, for the first time, I played the Kentucky derby at our local casino. Not knowing how to bet on the machines they have, I accidentally bet twice on one horse. Well, OMG, that horse won! So, while waiting in line to collect the money, (for which the line was not moving) the win was challenged and it was discovered that the horse touched another horse, so, that immediately disqualified the horse I bet on. I knew it was too good to be true! Oh well…

The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley is our first product offering of this kind, and we’re so excited about it! Stampin’ Up is already planning to release more in the future.

The Everything is Rosy kit is only available May 1–31, 2019

  • The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley will be available for purchase until May 31, 2019—or while supplies last.
  • No order limits apply to the Everything Is Rosy Product Medley during this sales period.
  • The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley is eligible for Stampin’ Rewards.
  • The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley may be added to a Starter Kit.

You can purchase this kit by clicking on the “Shop With Me” button above.

You can click on the YouTube link below to watch a short video to see what is included in the kit. It’s just beautiful!

Don’t for get to purchase some of these items below!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin’!

Birthday Celebration Time!

As promised, I found the card in my files! Why does this always change for me? One day uploading cards is a breeze, the next, I don’t know what happens!! I’m always struggling with this.

Oh well, I made 2 of the cards below, slightly different. The card directly below is for my great niece, who turns 10 on the 22 and her sister turned 3 on the 19th. We have 4 birthdays in 5 days. I used Lovely Lipstick (my favorite color) and for Lindsey’s card I used Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight (the candles).

The Celebration Time Bundle is retired. I went to add the catalog number and just found out it retired last year. I could have sworn it was in the current catalog plus it was with my current supplies. I so apologize for this. However, everything else I used is in the current and Occasions catalogs.

As I was about to sign a message here, I realized too late, to take a photo.

Here is a list of the products I used. Keep in mind the DSP, Big Shot and Trimmer will be retiring soon. Stampin’ Up will be replacing theses items in the future.

As always, thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment.

Happy Stampin’,

Lori
