What an Epic Posie!

Today I am going to share with you a card that Stampin' Up! posted.  I literally am just in a happy stamping heaven with it!  It's so bright and cheery and fun!  I love it and it really is not hard at all!  It was created by one of their Artisan Award Demonstrators, they share creations with us monthly on our demonstrator website ... just had to pass this beauty along!

  artwork (C) copyright Stampin' Up!, 1990-2013

Start with your card base and splatter some color to the base of the card with a marker and your Air Art Gun (retiring... sad I love this tool) and stamp a greeting in the top corner (could sub the HB greeting and use the one that comes in the Pop Up Posies kit).  Cut some strips of Designer Series Patterned Paper (aka DSP) in varying widths and fishtail cut the ends into little flags.  Line them up and over lap them a bit, secure with a strip of our new Washi tapes.  Add some twine and leave the tails long and curly.  The beautiful posie flower comes from our Pop Up Posies Kit, yep already cut out and ready to go, scrunch a few, layer and pierce the layers all at once, add in a button brad (yep, included in the kit too!) and mount to the card.  For a finishing touch, stamp a greeting on DSP and punch out with the ticket punch (or whatever you have handy!) and tuck it into a cute little clip and adhere to the card!

This is a one layer card made with scraps and a few other things ... simply adorable!  What do you think??

To get these little gems in your hands, ORDER HERE and soon you'll be creating just like they did!

Here are a few ideas from my March team swap to inspire you - please enjoy!  I know a couple are Easter-y and too late to hand out for the holiday but in my opinion the little chick and bunny are perfect for Spring and just in time to scrapbook your holiday pictures or in a thank you note! And the butterfly card, you just need to see it in real life, the glitter and color are wonderful!

The little CHICK happy Easter card was my swap card, and I definitely CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) this little beauty from Sharon B.

And this adorable BUNNY card was swapped by Elizabeth!  Love It and so happy to have one! Did you see what she used for his tail??  Yep, the 5/8" flower trim from the spring mini catalog! 

And this one in real life, it's so shiny and shimmering with all that glitter!  So colorful too, it just wants to sizzle right of the page!  Thank you Cindy for this gorgeous card!!!  And yes, it pushed me over the edge to have to buy this stamp ... I thought I had managed an ounce of self control, but nope, now its mine!

Okay I have to get off, trying to write shorter posts so that I'll do it more often but I feel like it's been so much business news that I needed to even it out with more inspiration too!

Hugs, have a great day and THANK YOU for considering me your demonstrator if you need to place an order, I do appreciate your business!

Floral Swap Card, a little bit country


Today I thought I would share with you my swap card that I made on Monday, for my team meeting with my INKin' All Night! group of demonstrators.  Each month I host a team gathering where we share stamping of course, business ideas, tip & tricks, product features and demonstrations ... what we see and do varies each month based on who volunteers to do something or bring items to show and tell.  And a highlight each month is that we have a swap -- you make, you bring, you swap, you take home... great way to share ideas!

This month our swap theme was using "Anything Flowers" ... everyone has a stash of flower stamps and let's face it, what girl doesn't love a flower now and then?

I'm not sure where I made my left turn, I started out with Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze and a Pink in front of me, and then I think I grabbed that handy little stash of Print Poetry DSP and fell in love when I found these 3 patterns all matching my Crumb Cake kind of girly, kind of country, ... what do you think?

My card supplies are:

Very Vanilla - card base, large scallop edgelit border,
One in a Million Stamp Set - for the greeting
Crumb Cake - panel layer & Elegant Lines Folder
Print Poetry DSP Pack (from spring mini) for the
     Blue Paisley layer
     Crumb Cake Print & floral framelit layer
     Blue Script layer  - 1" circle punch
Creped Filter Paper (spring mini catalog also) and 2nd smallest floral framelit layer
     which was wheeled with Script,Ruler,Lace triple wheels
Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon
Soda Pop Tops (smashed with Big Shot Machine)

Here are a few of the supplies that I used on my card!

Celebrating 25 Years, All Year Long

Hello again!

I decided to separate out the Best of 25 Years Promotion as it does not have a deadline anytime soon.  In celebration of the 25th Anniversary, Stampin' Up! decided to release one new stamp set each month of this year which celebrates the best of some images throughout the 25 years as well as includes an exclusive never seen before image(s) too!  Each set will vary in theme and images from prior years may not be the exact same size as they were when originally released.

These sets are available in clear mount only, each month is $14.95 and you there's a bonus coupon or two as well!  For every six "Best of 25 Years" sets you purchase, you will get your choice of one $14.95 stamp set from the new catalog for FREE.  Buy 12 sets, get 2 free, etc.  Just save the special 25 sticker that comes on  your index label sheet and adhere it to your Collectors Card and then redeem when you're ready!

There are no limits and all sets once released are available until March of 2014 (that's next year!).  So even though you may think it's a bit late to use them now, think again!  You can scrapbook those holidays or events and you could just be super early for next year!

Check back each month to see what the new stamp set is!


Enjoy!  Order April 6-8th and get FREE SHIPPING!  Click here to order!


What's NEW? ... so many fun things


There are LOTS of NEW things to tell you about!  This year is the 25th Anniversary of Stampin' Up! and it's going to be quite a party all year long!  They are celebrating and trying many new things, some in new ways and some may stick around and some may not, depends on how things go! 

Please do not get overwhelmed, yes, easier to say than do but my personal advice is check things out and go with what interests you!  Not every offering is meant to appeal to every person, so don't feel bad if you like some and skip some.  And the dates are a bit overlapping on several of the promotions, so it gives you more time to think about things.

I'm going to start this LIST with the items that are ending the earliest, as that just makes sense to me. 
If you are viewing from my actual BLOG page (not via a reader or in your email) you will see these promotions listed in the right hand column, click on the image to open the full page pdf file or email me, and I can send you it too!

Enjoy - feel free to give me a shout with any questions!

PHOTOPOLYMER - completely clear stamp set, DESIGNER TYPE (while supplies last) and depending on how this set does, they may release more sets in the future!

SENT WITH LOVE (ends Apr 30)


"EPIC DAY" THIS and THAT JOURNAL, new sneak peek product line coming in the new catalog.  Items are available as a BUNDLE (ends Apr 30th) or as separate components!


SNEAK PEEK at a set from the new catalog, A ROUND ARRAY  (Mar 15-May 30) available as a bundle or purchase just the stamp set if you already have the punch!                                         

Free Shipping Just in Time!

Where has the time gone?  Seems I have been busy with stamping and every day life but I haven't been sharing it here at my blog ... hopefully you have been keeping up with me via my Facebook Fan Page and if you haven't liked my page yet, please do!  I will get better at posting to my blog!  It's not for a lack of content, it's apparently just me being lazy and not writing posts!  Sounds fixable if I work at it!

Anyhow, on to exciting news!  So much Stampin' Up! news to share with you!

Stampin' Up! is offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders April 6-8th!!  No minimum and no limits! No minimum shipping if you just want a little something or save as much as you want on a bigger order!! Earn & enjoy Hostess Rewards ($25 free) with an order of $150.  Please order via my Online Store

A COLOR REFRESH is coming with the release of the 2013-14 Catalog, June 1st.  Back in 2010 when SU! had the larger color renovation they stated that they would refresh every 3-5 years as needed to keep the color collections that we offer up to date and on trend.  Many of the NEW colors are returning In Colors and a Brand New Smoky Slate, a new lighter gray!  Unfortunately that means that some colors from our current offering are retiring and supplies are only available while supplies last.  So grab them now!  < Ink Pads, Ink Refills, Markers, Cardstock, Ribbons, and other embellishments >
The chart will show you the upcoming Color Collections, a couple of colors shifted to a new color family.

Also the WATERCOLOR CRAYONS are available while supplies last for the Regals, Subtles & Neutrals.  The Bold Brights were already on back order along with the Watercolor Pencils.  Due to availability issues with the manufacturer, these products will no longer be offered.  Pg 157 of main catalog.

Watercolor Wonder Crayons - Subtles Collection - by Stampin' Up! 

And there is a TON MORE NEW stuff to pick from too!  I will write a second post to share those with you in order for this one not to get toooooo toooooo long!

Thanks, and I'll be back with more!
Hugs, have a great day!
