Supposedly there is snow in the forecast this weekend in Chicago! I guess it can put you in the mood to stamp some Christmas Cards! You can take advantage of the limited-release Snowflake Showcase products.
Designer Series Paper (a.k.a. DSP) is by far my favorite accessory. It is so versatile....use it for cards, gift packaging, decor, and memory keeping. It adds lots of color and texture in a snap! Here are my top 4 DSP in honor of our Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion good until the end of July. If you click on the previous link you will see a list of the available items for this promotion. Specialty DSP is not included, unfortunately, but there are still 10 from which to choose. Check back all this month to see projects showcasing the versatility and awesomeness of DSP!
Use Hostess Code: B4VPZTHJ this month when you order online and I will email you two ideas and instructions to start using your DSP!
This 12x12 DSP featuring photographic floral designs on one side and textured appearance on the other is just beautiful! One thing I LOVE about it is the trimmable elements included in two of the designs which are perfectly sized for small notecards...talk about coordinating gift wrap and card!
Why? Christmas in July...of course! Hallmark Christmas movies have been playing at my house these past few days and my daughter has already made a Holiday Planner and stamped Christmas cards. Shaded Spruce* is one of the newly revamped colors and I can't wait to use it.
*Note: It's also in the Tropical Escape DSP listed above.
It's reminiscent of when I joined the Stampin' Up! family as a Demonstrator back in 2002...I got a set of Bold Bright ink pads for FREE with my Starter Kit! This is an offer that really doesn't come around that often. I think it was only offered one other time since I signed up as a SU! Demonstrator 16 years ago! Right now, for a limited time, Stampin’ Up! is offering a FREE family of Classic Stampin’ Pads to all new recruits. Join my team today, The INK Crowd (how's that for a coincidence or is it serendipitous?), and get a color family of your own.
Please join me in celebrating the launch of the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and new Stampin' Up! colors! There has been a pretty intense color revamp at Stampin’ Up! and I’d love to show you all the delicious new colors (think fruit) and some returning In Colors, like one of my favorites...Poppy Parade. I'm hosting a Catalog Kickoff Open House on Friday, June 15 from 5-8 pm and Saturday, June 16 from 8:30-11:30 am.
Come on over and get your FREE copy of the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog and see what’s new too! Like what is this newStamparatuscontraption? Or the exclusive DistINKtive stamps?? Stamp a couple of projects, try out the newly-designed ink pad & new tools, and enjoy some treats like Pineapple Punch, Merry Merlot Sangria, Granny Apple Green taffy salad, and Blueberry Bushel bars! There is no fee, but please RSVP so I can have enough supplies and goodies for you.
Can't make those dates? Check out the online version of the catalog and place an order online using the Hostess Code: MHDVPHHN
April Showers for the Stampin' Blends Club creates May Flowers projects! So very sad that the Stampin' Blends aren't available for purchase right now due to their popularity (backorder/unorderable status), but so grateful that I was able to get sets for my club members in two very versatile colors....Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. Although I had to change my original plans for club projects (the April showers), I'm very happy with the new projects albeit late (hence the May flowers).
So happy that this Beautiful Day stamp set will be in the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2018-19 Annual Catalog! Two large images and greetings in a beautiful font. Love to watercolor? The rose and butterfly are perfect images to create focal points. I used the Daffodil Stampin' Blend to add highlights to the flower that I had stamped on Delightful Daffodil card stock. Did the same for the leaf on Old Olive, cut it out, and adhered to the Stiched-square layer.
I used this card as my "swap" at the recent Milwaukee OnStage event. It was a training event for Demonstrators and I got to see a lot of friends I haven't seen in years! And we were so lucky to have Shelli Gardener, the co-founder of Stampin' Up! as our host for the day...what an amazing surprise for us!
Here's the second card from the Blends Club for March. Using the Sale-a-Bration Epic Celebrations stamp set. Think I may have to use this for graduation cards this year!
I am lovin' the Pick a Pattern Washi tape! Normally I don't use very much of the washi tape because I'm usually at a loss on how to add it to cards unless I'm CASEing something...which is typical of me:) The Pick a Pattern washi tape works so well with the "grunge-like" Epic Celebration set. Can't wait to find other projects to use it on!
First card for my Stampin’ Blends club March projects. Loved how it turned out! Can you see the mini sequins trim behind the headset? Also lovin’ the black and white Pick a Pattern Washi tape! I was inspired by this post from Patty Bennett using the Watercolor Wash background stamp over the Brick Wall embossed card stock.
Used the Epic Celebrations Sale-a-Bration stamp set and the Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to get the shaded watercolor look. The Blends are so popular that the supply has been depleted until May! Club Members never fear...I have a plan. Check back soon for card #2 for March and all the supplies for both projects. Follow me (sign up to the right) and you’ll be notified when it’s posted.
