Stampin’ Up! Third Release for Sale-a-bration

Stampin’ Up! is doing amazing things… and to inspire us all they have a THIRD RELEASE for the final days of Sale-a-bration (SAB). Products available in the first and second releases may still be ordered, but this Third Release is a stimulation for all of us. When you order from this THIRD RELEASE you must use the item number shown on the flyer below as they are a different item number strictly for this final sale. Please see the flyer for more details – then place your order with me!



I’ll be back later today with a really fun project using the

Flowering Foils Specialty DSP

that is also a free product during SAB. 

For now – continue crafting… what else are you going to do during the time of “self containment”? Who really wants to clean out the garage, the attic or a closet? Well, not me! But I will say that yesterday hubby and I began tackling the garage, for that is our storage area for all things. Yes, we get our cars in the garage… but it’s cramped and a bit scary. So that’s been rather a freeing project if I do say so myself. I have some items to shred, but thank goodness our sanitation workers are still on the job and our recycling goes out today. Lots of old papers that don’t need keeping any more are part of that pickup.

See you soon with all the details of my project and a fun gift set!

Bloom and Grow, matching dies Budding Blooms

I really enjoy coloring, so using the blends is very relaxing to me. How about for you? This card in particular was pretty simple & easy to do. What makes a difference in a card are the details. For instance, did you notice the coloring on the background? That was done oh so casually with both light and dark Stampin Blends. It’s a bit too straight for my liking but for today we’re going with it.

Here are the details:

  • Very Vanilla card base cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″ – opens from the left
  • Poppy Parade layer 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″, put on card with dimesionals
  • Shimmer card layer 4 3/4″ x 3 3/8″: use Stampin blends Petal Pink to color, alternating light and dark. Adhere Shimmer paper to the Poppy Parade layer with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the flower in Memento black ink; color flowers with Poppy Parade blends light and dark; color leaves with Call Me Clover blends light and dark; color berries with light Poppy Parade; cut out with appropriate die and adhere with dimentionals onto the Shimmer paper.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Basic Black cs with Versamark ink. (Use the embossing buddy first to clear the cs of static) Dip into white embossing powder, flicking off excess, and heat emboss. Adhere to card fron with dimensionals.
  • YAY! Front is done…

Inside… I wanted to keep this really simple so stamped one of the flower bouquet on the bottom right side in Memento black ink.

Envelope… Again, wanted it to be simple but eye-catching so dry embossed a 6″ x 2 1/4″ Poppy Parade with the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder. This was adhered with liquid glue and cut to fit.

This card could so easily be done in most any shade using the Stampin Blends. Whatever color you use for the flower, coordinate the underlying paper and the envelope flap. YAY! Can’t wait to see what you do with this stamp set.

OK, after writing this post, I just had to share the rest of the cards I created. I had a class Monday night and did some extra stamping to share how to move the light and dark blends. Here are several:


Enjoy creating, crafting, sharing. Please use my HOST CODE 2TMMA9HX if your order is over $50 and I will send you a free $10 .item of your choice. One freebie per customer per month, thank you!

Country Club, Father’s Day

Hi there! Today’s card is in preparation of our fathers or brothers or male friend – Father’s Day  -and we are ahead of the game 😉 It could easily be changed to a birthday card using the same stamp set/ dies. The Designer Series Paper that coordinates with this stamp set is so stately, I just really, really like it. You can find these items in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue.

Here’s how to do the card cuts…

  • Card base is Garden Green 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″.
  • Bottom layer is Pear Pizzaz 1 7/8″ x 5 1/4″,  DSP is adhered with Tombow glue and is 1 3/4″ x 5 1/8″
  • Layer #2 is Pear Pizzaz at 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″; Garden Green cut at 2 1/8″ x 4 1/8″; then DSP is 2″ x 4″
  • Top layer is Pear Pizzaz 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″; Garden Green 2 5/8″ x 3 1/8″; Whisper White 2 1/2″ x 3″

Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy on the Whisper White piece; cut the golf clubs and the balls out of Silver foil, adhering with Tombow glue. Card front is done!


Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy on Whisper White which is cut at 4″ x 5″; adhere another of the golf balls with Tombow glue; adhere to the card base… inside done!

I showed this card to my hubby and he loved it! He said it looked so elegant – made my head swell just a little 😏. Thanks for stopping by. Remember to use my

Gift Card Holder

Thought I would share with you the gift card holders I made today. Inspired by one of my students. here they are… see below

* Card stock is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored on the long side at 3 1/8, 4 1/4 & 5 3/8
* Fold in half, burnish; fold the other two scored sides the opposite direction. Card now looks as though it has a W in the middle. Adhere that ‘W’ inside.
* I made the front piece to hold the gift card by using tear n tape on the ends of the fold.
* Decorate as desired: my sizes for the front were..CS: 3 x 5 3/8, DSP: at 2 7/8 x 5 1/4. The inside dimension was 3 x 5 3/8

Have fun!!!
This is the outside: the envelope is a standard small envelope, decorated to coordinate with each individual card holder.

And here’s the inside:

Sneak Peek – Breathtaking Bouquet – 2020 Mini Catalogue

Todays card is from the new 2020 Mini Catalogue that opens for ordering Jan – Jun. The stamp set is called Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp Set. I used it in my Stamparatus with Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder on Seaside Spray. I really like the softness of this color! The really fun part happened next as I began coloring the image with various Stampin’ Up! Blends. It takes a bit of time but somehow it’s soothing to me. Here are the Blends I have used for the flowers: Light and Dark So Saffron, Light and Dark Purple Posy (love this color too!), Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie,Light and Dark Blackberry Bliss. For the leaves I used Light and Dark Granny Apple Green plus Light and Dark Old Olive. The ribbons used to simply wrap the card were Whisper White Flax ribbon and the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic ribbon from the Holiday catalogue. For the inside I used the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set for the sentiment (using Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends) and the dragonflies from the Friend Like You stamp set using Seaside Spray ink pad.

Here are the deets for the card:
* 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Seaside Spray CS, scored at 4 1/4″
* Seaside Spray Layer 4 x 5 1/4″ (front)
* Whisper White 4 X 5 1/4″ (inside)

Please notice the envelope – stamped in dragonflies as though they are circling the card!

Cut your card stock for the stamping Breathtaking Bouquet, larger than 4 x 5 1/4 as the stamp set is large and you want it to stamp all the way to the edge. After stamping and embossing, pare down to appropriate size :o)

Here’s the card!

And the inside with the envelope.

Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of a very pretty stamp.

Online Extravaganza + Card

What a great last two days of stamping and creating! Yesterday it was eye pillows for our daughter who is teaching a class about Essential Oils (Young Living to be exact). I made 7 and they turned out so cute :o) Sorry – no picture of those. Today it was making a birthday card for my brother-in-law and I used some new paper from the Mini Catalogue – whee! The paper is from the Clubhouse Suite… this Designer Series Paper is called Country Club DSP and is very masculine – golf themed on one side, plaids and argyle on the other. Here’s the card I created:

And here are the stats:
* Crumb Cake CS – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 1 1/2 x 5 for banner (trimmed w/ the Triple Banner punch
* Whisper White CS – 4 x 5 1/4 (cut one for inside as well) + 2 1/4″ square for 2″ circle punch
* Country Club DSP – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 + 3/4 x 5 1/4 for inside + piece for envelope flap (2 1/4 x 6)
* Garden Green CS – 1 1/2 x 4 trimmed down w? Triple Banner punch
* Night of Navy CS – about 2 1/2 square, cut down w/ Starburst punch
* Bakers Twine – Night of Navy/Sahara Sand for bow
* Perennial Birthday stamp set for the sentiments

Hartford CT – Mini Catalogue Release Previews

Hartford CT 2019

The introduction of the Mini Catalogue (new name) was introduced to those demonstrators attending conventions around the world. I was able to attend the Hartford CT event and it was fabulous!
Here are photos of some of the items available in the new catty (which will be available to customers in late Dec.) The catalogue ordering dates are Jan-June. Having a preview allows the customer to prepare a WISH LIST/ ORDER LIST ahead of time. If you have placed an order with this past year and do not have another demonstrator, you will receive the new catty mid December. If you do not have a demonstrator and place a $50 order with me prior to Dec 2, you will receive a mini catalogue mid Dec. Enjoy these previews and begin making your list!

Hope this gives you some preview of the excitement that is building around this catalogue 🙂 Feel free to post questions regarding the products available. As always, during this particular sales time, there are promotions for free products when ordering certain dollar amounts. Below are two pictures of some of those.

Enjoy the previews!
