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.

I made this inside the same for both the card above and below.

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’!

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’,

Best Catch Ever

Hi there, I hope all is well with you! Today is finally looking and feeling like Spring, it’s 53 degrees outside! YAY!!

Well, today is my youngest daughter, Lindsey’s birthday, she is 21! I can’t get over how fast time has gone. Lindsey still lives at home and works part time at a nearby hotel setting up banquet rooms. She was such a little stinker when she was young and so funny. I was going to post her card here but am having troubles locating it in my files. So, I will have to post it later.

My son Avery will be 26 on the 24th. He is currently living with 2 of his high school friends about 4 blocks away. He works as a Postman in Waukesha, (another county nearby). He is looking to buy a home, too. I made the card above for his birthday.

Here is how you can make this card:

The base of the card is in Night of Navy card stock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2. I also used Mint Macaron cut at 4 x 5 1/4, Tranquil Textures DSP cut at 3 3/4 x 5, Tranquil Tide card stock cut at 3 1/4 x 3 3/4, Whisper White cut at 3 x 3 1/2 and run through the Big Shot using the embossing folder Swirls and Curls embossing folder. I also used Basis Black card stock for the plant die cut and the 1 3/8 circle punch. Pease see below for the complete list of products I used, which can be purchased in my Stampin’ Up store above.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card, if you did please leave me a comment. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin’!

Distinktive Stamps

Hi Stamper’s! Well I think the weather is going to start warming up here. It’s supposed to be in the 50’s, yeah! Today I got a lot accomplished. I paid all my bills (something I hate to do) and did my taxes. I even started my brother’s taxes.

Well today is about Distinktive Stamps:

  1. Distinktive stamps give you photo-realistic images with just one stamp. They have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step.
  2. These stamps are available only from Stampin’ Up! and are made using a patent-pending process.
  3. Distinktive stamps are available in red rubber and photopolymer; Paper Pumpkin’s April kit includes photopolymer stamps. You must order the Paper Pumkin Kit by April 10th.
  4. Shop Distinktive stamps in the online store by searching “Distinktive,” or look for the Distinktive icon in Stampin’ Up! catalogs.
  5. Watch our video to learn more about Distinktive stamps.

Here is an example of a Distinkive stamp set. It can be found on page 110 in Catalog.

Hope you have a Great Day, Thanks for stopping by, Happy Stampin”.

Love What You Do!

Hi Stamper’s, I hope you’re staying warm! It’s 6 degrees here today and for the next couple of days it will be cold like this. I had errands to run, but when it’s this cold out, I just want to stay in.

I know it’s been a while since I last posted, but, I needed an up-line that could help and support me with my business. This was a hard decision to make, (I gave up 10 years). So, I had to drop out of Stampin’ Up for 3 months and re-sign under a new demonstrator. I am so glad that I did. I signed under Kelly Acheson and even though Kelly is 2 hours away from me she has helped me tremendously! BIG SHOUT OUT to Kelly!! Thank you sooo much!!

So… I was working on some designs (I have an order that won’t be here until Friday). I decided just now, that I should draw them out so I don’t forget by the time my order actually gets here. Which is what usually happens.

I love the Specialty Designer Series Paper – Share What you Love. I always hate to cut into gorgeous DSP. Is there anyone else out there like me that will horde it cause it’s too pretty to cut into? Then a whole year goes by and suddenly you’re not as crazy about it? Well… The Share What You Love DSP has 24 sheets in the pack. So I decided to USE IT UP, BEFORE it retires. Also, I used the Love What You Do stamp set that coordinates with the Share What You Love DSP.

Here is my card.

Here is the inside of the card.

Here is a list of the products I used:

Happy Stampin’ and thank you for stopping by,

The New Blended Seasons Stamp Set for a Limited Time Only!

Hi Stampers!

For the month of August only or until supplies last you can get the Blended Season stamp set or bundle with the Stitched Seasons Framelits. I love this set. The flowers are great for background stamping as well as for coloring a focal image. I also want to add that for every $50.00 you spend in the month of August you can earn a $5.00 coupon to spend in the whole month of September. So please contact me to place your order.

For these cards I used a stitched rectangle Framelit from another set ( I’m sorry, I don’t recall where I got it from) and then stamped the the background floral image in Smokey Slate from the Blended Seasons stamp set.  I then die cut the larger flower in Lovely Lipstick card stock and the leaves in Granny Apple Green card stock from the May Flowers Framelits. I die cut the Celebrate from the Celebrate Thinlets and Congrats from Sunshine Wishes Thinlets in black card stock. I then mounted the images on Whisper White and on Lovely Lipstick cardstock. I then embellished the cards with the Clear Faceted Gems. At the end of this post is a list of all the products I used to make these cards.

Of course when I started I didn’t realize the first flower was from the now retired Stylish Stems (below) and the butterflies are from the retired Butterflies Framelits.

 

Here is a list of products I used.

I hope you like the cards and please feel free to leave a comment! Thanks for visiting.
