Stampin’ Up! Abstract Beauty DSP B’day

Hello Folks! I’ve been knocked sideways by a cold – slept nearly all of Sunday. Made a card for Monday’s post on Monday… here it is almost 4 PM on Monday – so it will go out properly Tuesday morning. 🙂

Abstract Beauty DSP B’day.1

I happen to love plaids and sometimes some of the ‘other sides’ of designer series papers are more appealing to me. The flower patterns are pretty, but this pattern really struck me. This is 4×6 paper to begin with, so I cut it down to 4 x 5 1/4, adhered a Basic White panel to the back for strength then used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to do the work. I used the 4th &n 5th rectangles to cut the plaid panels and saved the border that was removed. You’ll see why soon enough. I stamped the sentiment on a Basic White scrap with balmy Blue ink using the new Artfully Layered stamp set and die cut it with another of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. At this point I adhered the plaid pieces by putting dimensionals on the back and attaching them to a Just Jade card front. The card needed something else. Since I had this new stamp set out, I also pulled the coordinating dies: Tropical Layers Dies and some Pear Pizzazz scrap and cut this fine frond. I adhered it right on the plaid front with dabs of liquid glue, and added all the little die cut pieces too and liked it. The sentiment panel got more dimensionals and was added on. Voila – love the look.

Remember, I saved that plaid piece that was removed when I die cut the rectangles. Here’s what I did with it.

Abstract Beauty DSP B’day.2

I adhered the left-over piece to a panel of Basic White, then stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink. And done… The best part, this could so easily be a masculine card ~ and it’s going to be! I have a twin brother and our birthday is in February, this is for him :O) And since he doesn’t read my blog, I can share it early 👍

The envelope… I used another of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 DSP pieces for the envelope flap; adhered & trimmed to fit. For the front I stamped this interesting word stamp from the Artfully Layered stamp set in Balmy Blue ink.

Stampin’ Up! Hey Sports Fan and Sports Event Dies B’day

Hello folks! How’s your day? It’s r-e-a-l-l-y cold here in central Jersey, brrr. Our Christmas decorations are finally down and put away. I resisted for as long as I could :O) Needles, needles everywhere from the tree. I bet I vacuumed at least four times, ‘cuz I kept finding more needles. 🥴 Those are the hazards of a fresh cut tree. And I know that.

Today’s card is for our grandson who turns 14 very soon. He’s a hunk of a young man, 8th grade and I really did NOT know what to do… I looked through the new DSP and found… Hey Sports Fan and made it work. I hope he likes it.

Hey Sports Fan DSP & Sports Event Dies B’day.1

The background DSP is from this Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP. The ‘ticket and flag banner are die cut from one of the papers using the Sports Event Dies. The stars I fussy cut and added Shimmer Crystal Effects for a bit more shine and dimension. You can clearly see I die cut the ticket twice: once from the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP, and the background for that from Night of Navy card stock. I cut the Night of Navy piece in half and adhered it to the Hey There ticket with liquid glue. I added the star with a dimensional once it was dry from the Crystal Effects. The flag banner was die cut from a piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP, then an additional piece was added die cut in Bumblebee card stock, I took the Wink of Stella pen and covered the word with it to extra glam.

Hey Sports Fan DSP & Sports Event Dies.2

I put dimensionals on the back and set it aside. I die cut a strip of stars from another piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 and adhered it to a slightly wider strip of Night of Navy. I stamped the ‘YOU’ using the Slim Slayings stamp set, by just inking the word in Evening Evergreen ink and stamping it on a scrap of Very Vanilla . I fussy cut around it, making it a rectangle. I also used Wink of Stella on the letters to give them more importance.

Time to put this card and it’s parts together…

  • card base is Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 14
  • Night of Navy 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP 4 x 5 14 adhered to Night of Navy panel. Put dimensionals on the back and add to card base.
  • Adhere the ‘Hey There’ ticket with liquid glue
  • Add the die cut flag banner with dimensionals
  • Add the star strip with liquid glue 1/2″ from bottom
  • Cut a length of Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack in Real red and add to the back of the YOU rectangle. Put dimensionals on the back and add just above the star strip
  • Add three Matte Decorative Dots for more notice. (I just realized these dots are retired as of Jan 4, 2022.)So instead… with Blends, color three Pearl Basic Jewels in Dark Poppy Parade, let dry and add them!
  • Card front is done!
Hey Sorts Fan DSP B’day, inside.3

For the inside, I die cut another flag banner from the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP and adhered it to a Very Vaniila piece 4 x 5 1/4). I stamped the sentiment using the Special Moments stamps set (NEW) making sure to bend it to follow the curve of the flag. This was stamped in Poppy Parade ink. I cut a length of stars from another piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 and adhered it 1/2: from the bottom, then added the panel to the inside of the card. I added another larger fussy cut star (coated in Crystal Shimmery Effects) to the inside of the card, VOILA! the card is done!

For the envelope…

Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP.4

The envelope flap got another piece of Hey Sports FAN 12 x 12 DSP. For the front, I stamped the uber cute sentiment in Poppy Parade ink using the Special Moments stamp set ~ and the card was d-o-n-e… I’m hoping our grandson will like this!

And that was it! It’s a fun, cheerful card ~ and I hope he likes it.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves

Good Saturday morning! It’s a beaut here ~ 65 degrees and a bit breezy. The day is new & fresh :O) I just recently posted (Thurs) a card with a fun centerpiece created w/ Blending Brushes & several colors. Because there was some card stock left over I decided to put it to use and created today’s card. Because of the sentiments used, it can so easily be used as a ‘thinking of you card’ as well.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.1

The three squares are some of what’s remaining of the original coloring, and it’s been backed by Brushed Metallic card stock in a coppery look. The leaves were die cut from Gold/ Rose Gold 6×6 using the gold (you can see I left some of the pieces in the leaves – intentionally), Gold foil sheet and a stamped leaf in stamped off Mango Melody. The dies used are Intricate Leaves Dies which coordinates with the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set. The Cajun Craze card stock was run through the Timeworn Word 3D embossing folder and adhered to a Very Vanilla panel and attached to the Cajun craze card base with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and stamped on a Very Vanilla scrap with Pumpkin Pie ink then fussy cut & also adhered with dimensionals. The three leaves were glued in place and a glue dot was used to adhere a double strand bow of Linen Thread.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.2

For the inside…. I used stamped off Pumpkin Pie ink for the leaves, sometimes third generation. The splotch was made with Mango Melody ink ~ both from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla. The sentiment is again from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set, stamped in Pumpkin Pie…. and the card was done! Kinda nice having left-over pieces to create a card. :O)

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.3


For the envelope I used the same process as the inside of the card… stamped off Pumpkin Pie for the leaves and Mango Melody ink for the splotch – both on a Very Vanilla envelope.

Here is a photo of the ink colors used to create the original panel with the Blending Brushes.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.4

Stampin’ Up! You’re a Peach Birthday

Today’s post is a birthday card – ordered by our daughter. She said she was down to one, could you send some more please? This is the first of the batch.

You’re A Peach Birthday.1

The DSP is You’re a Peach DSP layered on Pale Papaya, then Calypso Coral that was die cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies. And that beautiful spray? It comes from Artistic Dies and Gold/ Rose Gold 6×6 DSP. Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous – the spray & the Gold? I keep forgetting I have it. I kept the card pretty simple – so mailing would be a single stamp. Postage is increasing and that’s a consideration when I make cards for an order. The Calypso Coral panel is on dimensionals. The sentiment comes from Art Gallery stamp set and was stamped in Calypso Coral ink. I added three Metallic Pearls in gold for the final touch.

You’re A Peach Birthday.2

The inside… a background layer of Calypso Coral, then the Basic White stamped layer. Since I had the Art Gallery stamp set available, I stamped the sentiment then a couple of the small flowers, stamped off Calypso Coral for the larger stamp and Pale Papaya for the second or filler stamp. I took a Micron pen and inked around the flower to give it a bit of definition. I like the added touch. I adered the Basic White panel and the card was done!

You’re A Peach Birthday.3

For the envelope, I added a panel of the same You’re a Peach DSP to the flap & trimmed it to fit – and that was it. This is a bright cheery card and puts a smile on my face ~ I hope it does yours as well. I’ll give the product list, then I’ll share the list of bundles you can get – for FREE is you join up now as a demonstrator. I would love to have you on my team 😁

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Birthday

It’s Tuesday – do you have something F-U-N planned? It’s our son-in-laws birthday today and I’ve made a special card for him… He tends toward the modern and straight lines, so I decided to follow that. We also have a bag that one of his presents is in and that determined the colors for the card, cuz I wanted them to coordinate. Silly? Maybe, but there it is. The cloth bag has tones of brown & a beautiful blue – I decided on Bermuda Bay and it almost matches perfectly! For the brown I used Soft Suede and it’s just ok… I think it looks good on the card.

Stitched Triangles Birthday.1

I’ve used a RETIRED product – totally against the ‘rules’ but again, I wanted to use something that I thought our son-in-law would like. The retired item is Mercury Glass Designer Acetate in silver. A current item is the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Designer Acetate and I SHOULD HAVE used that, turned to the reverse side… but honestly I didn’t think of it. 😦 In my product list, Hydrangea Hill Mercury Designer Acetate will show, cuz it will totally work!

Here’s what I did…

  • Die cut triangles from Pattern Party DSP – 2
  • Die cut triangles from Hydrangea Hill Mercury Designer Acetate on the silver side – 2
  • Adhered them together offset – as shown in photo. using Stampin’ Seal (HINT/ TIP: Stampin’ Seal does not show through the acetate!)
  • Adhered to the card base – Thick Basic White as shown
  • Stamped sentiments from Biggest Wish stamp set: happy in Bermuda Bay ink and BIRTHDAY in Sahara Sand ink. I used the Stamparatus for this as it makes it really easy.
  • Added three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins
Stitched Triangles n Birthday, inside.2

For the inside I did some creative die cutting with additional dies from the Stitched Triangles Dies.

  • On the left I die cut directly into the Basic White panel using the Stitched Triangles Dies
  • I die cut two fun ‘banners’ from Soft Suede card stock then Bermudas Bay card stock and adhered them together with liquid glue, off-set.
  • Adhere the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay panel, slightly larger, with Stampin’ Seal, then into the inside of the card, again with Stampin’ Seal – – – and the card was D-O-N-E.
Stitched Triangles Birthday.3

For the envelope…

  • Die cut a strip with one of the Stitched Triangles Dies from Bermuda Bay card stock
  • Adhere with dots of liquid glue to Soft Suede card stock the same length but slightly wider
  • Adhere to envelope with Stampin’ Seal – and both card & envelope are d-o-n-e. YAY… Gosh, I just looked at the photo and it’s hard to tell the Bermuda Bay from the Soft Suede <:(

I THINK our son-in-law will like this card – and his gifties. Such fun to create for others with what they like in mind.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday In The Wild

Happy Saturday! It’s a beautiful day here on the East Coast and I’m hoping your day is a good one as well. I have a fun fold for you today – a tri-fold – you could maybe call it a cascade tri fold . It’s our grandsons 21st birthday today. Nothing like a grandchilds birthday to make me feel O-L-D! But then I figure – age is all in the head…besides, I’m doing some good things and age just doesn’t really matter.

Birthday In The Wild.1

This card is loaded with Designer Series Paper and very little card stock and it feels good in the hand – not flimsy. The base is In The Woods DSP cut 12 x 5 1/2, scored on the long side at 4 & 8, then burnished & folded mountain, valley. I then marked the front panel 1 1/2″ down from the top on the far left end and trimmed with my paper trimmer from the mark to the 2nd fold. This creates the cascade look. I then decorated each of the panels, inside & out. I used In The Wild DSP as the true focal point – it’s masculine and colorful. Since I do not have the dies for these beautiful creatures, I fussy cut a few and set them aside to add as necessary.

Birthday In The Wild.2

Panel 2 got a layer of this beautiful In The Wild DSP cut 3 15/16 x 5 1/2. I adhered it, then placed the card in my trimmer and trimmed off the top edge.

.Panel 3 actually got some card stock… 3 15/16 x 4 1/4 Basic White adhered in place. I added one of the beautiful creatures with liquid glue, making certain it did not show when the card was closed. I then stamped the word HAPPY using the Biggest Wish stamp set and Crushed Curry ink. I die cut the numbers 21 using scrap from the In The Wild DSP and the Playful Alphabet Dies. ((TIP: for strength of the numbers & balloon, I adhered some basic White to the DSP then die cut or punched as necessary.) I added the numbers with liquid glue. The balloon… is punched using the Balloon Punch, which is a retired item. I do have a die for a balloon but this punch was handy. First I cut a short length of Linen Thread and held it in place on the back of the balloon with a couple of dimensionals, then put it in place on the card.

Birthday In The Wild.3

Now I finished the front panel. With the card closed I adhered this beautiful creature with liquid glue just on it’s lower portion. The reason the card is closed is because you don’t want it on beyond the card 🙂 I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink using the All Squared Away stamp set on a Basic White scrap and fussy cut it. I like the font on this. I used a stitched rectangle from the Ornate Layers Dies and cut a panel of DSP (and yes, I did adhere Basic White to it before die cutting for strength.) I adhered the sentiment to this rectangle with liquid glue, then put dimensionals on the back and added it to the front of the card. I also added three Matte Black Dots.

Birthday In The Wild.4

I turned the card over and decorated the back side – with more of the In The Wild DSP. And I added a small fusasy cut beautiful creature for fun. I used the same trick for trimming the angle of the panels as before – the paper trimmer. For the right panel I did have to do some fussy cutting around the animals.

Birthday In The Wild.5

For the envelope I adhered more DSP from In The Wild DSP pack and then stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink from the All Squared Away stamp set. This is the perfect sentiment and again, I love the font.

So, what do you think? I wanted something bright but not gawdy, not too sophisticated (which this definitely is NOT), masculine and yet fun. For me, this fits the bill. Except for the numbers, this card could be used many ages – and I like that idea too.

If you do not have a demonstrator and need a Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. And when I send it, there will be a Sale-a-bration catalog in with it!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ In Good Taste DSP Fun Fold

Happy Monday and all that… hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had spectacular weather, so good for working outside some. Today – well, hot and humid once more so working inside will be more productive I’m thinkin’.

Today’s card is super easy, a bit of a fun fold, perfect for using some In Good Taste DSP – which is on SALE for 15% off (more details below).

B’day w/ In Good Taste DSP.1

Both of the DSP on this card come from In Good Taste DSP pack and they look great together. One of the things about this card is it can so easily be a masculine card – or not. I appreciate its versatility. This smaller strip of DSP looks as though it has texture, but doesn’t. It also opens to the inside of the card. In other words, The background DSP is a flat surface :O). Here’s how to do this…

  • Night of Navy card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • In Good Taste DSP layer is 4 x 5 1/4
  • Basic White panel 2 1/2 x 10 1/2, with DSP layer (2 1/2 x 5 1/4) adhered to the front of it
  • Basic White panel adhered to card base
  • Add Just Jade strip (1/4 x 5 1/4) left of panel
  • Create sentiment strip
    • stamp sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White strip (1/2 x 3 1/2); angle end.
    • add BW strip to Night of Navy (5/8 x 3 3/4) with liquid glue; angle end
    • add Flowers for Every Season Ribbon in Just Jade to the sentiment strip w/ Seal+
    • put dimensionals on the back of the panel and add to card panel
    • add three Playing with Resin Dots in Just Jade to the left of the sentiment
B’day w/ In Good Taste DSP.2

For the inside… stamp the sentiment in Just Jade ink using the Pansy Patch stamp set again. Add a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the bottom of the panel – and voila! This card is complete.

B’day In Good Taste DSP.3

For the envelope i did some fussy cutting of the In Good Taste DSP to create a fun edge and adhered it to the env envelope flap… done.done.done.

I like how easy this card was to make and how fun to have a different width for the additional panel. If you wanted, you could easily add a Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4) to the back of the card to have more writing space. Remember this DSP is currently 15% off – see more info below.

Below is some information about a Sales Tax Holiday for particular states – this is the perfect time to purchase DSP and then in August use that same opportunity to order from me in the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog 😁

US SCHOOL SUPPLY SALES TAX HOLIDAY

Eleven states will be offering a sales tax holiday for school supplies during the months of July or August. Products that are eligible according to the statute include “items normally used by students in a standard classroom for educational purposes.” To see the names of participating states, products exempted from tax, and sales tax holiday dates, click here.

Please note that you must place your order with Stampin’ Up! during the tax holiday period in order to receive these items tax-free (which is midnight on the first day to midnight on the last day of the tax holiday). Also, keep in mind that this is a state sales tax holiday; the state statute may not apply to county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.

If you have customers who live in states who benefit from the sales tax holiday (yay!), be sure to give them a call and let them know.

Note: Georgia, Louisiana, and Wisconsin have suspended the sales tax holiday for this year.

Stampin’ Up! Trifold Birthday Card

Hello stampers! Today’s card is a fun fold I have not done in – well, a long time. No reason really, just haven’t. I guess we could call it a Cascading Fun Fold and I’ve used the Pansy Patch bundle & Pansy Petals DSP to create this beauty.

Trifold Birthday.1

Isn’t this fun? And it’s for a dear friend who is turning 95! I couldn’t resist doing something special for her. Here are the basic steps for creating a Cascading Tri-Fold.

  • Begin with a card base cut 5 1/2 x 12 and score on the long side at 4 & 8. Burnish score lines as shown.
  • Mark 1 3/8″ from bottom left corner and cut from that point to the second score line. See photo.
Trifold Birthday.2
  • Create panels for decorating. I chose the Pansy Petals DSP and coordinated several papers – as you see.
    • Panel 1 is 3 3/4 x 3 1/4, then trimmed at the desired angle.
    • Panel 2 is 3 3/4 x 5 1/8, then trimmed at the desired angle. Cut two of these in able to decorate opposite side.
    • Panel 3 is 3 3/4 x 5 1/4
    • Adhere each with liquid glue.
Trifold Birthday.3
  • Decorate as desired with die cuts or stamping.
    • I used the Pansy Petals DSP and the Pansy Dies to die cut straight from the DSP each of the pansies – five of them is various colors & sizes.
    • The leaves are die cut from Mint Macaron & Soft Succulent card stocks and adhered together with liquid glue.
    • On panel 1, I used the Playful Alphabet Dies for the numbers (in Evening Evergreen cs), the Painted Labels Dies for the Basic White and the Layering Circles Dies in Evening Evergreen cs for the background of the die. This was adhered with dimensionals. The banner was stamped in Evening Evergreen ink on a 3/8 strip and the ends fussy cut. This was adhered with mini dimensionals. The sentiment comes from Pansy Petals stamp set.
    • On panel 2, (gingham side) the leaves are adhered directly to the card and the pansies are on dimensionals.
    • On panel 2 (Bumblebee side) the pansies were adhered directly to the card.
    • On panel 3 the sentiment was stamped in Evening Evergreen from the Pansy Petals stamp set and the pansy adhered with liquid glue.
    • For a final touch I added several Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.
    • And the card is complete!
Trifold Birthday.4

For the envelope, the flap got more of the Pansy Petals DSP. For the front I stamped a pansy from the Pansy Petals stamp set: Pale Papaya stamped off once, then Calypso Coral full strength and for the center, Bumblebee. Voila! This will be sent in today’s mail so she gets it in time for her celebration – so pleased…

TIP: For cutting the DSP panels on the angle… cut the panels (say 3 3/4 x 3 1/4) then lay on the angled card base and make a line on the DSP. Trim and adhere!

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday

The Biggest Wish stamp set just arrived recently and it is a fabulous stamp set. I’m going to share two cards with you today, both using this set. One is a sort of fun fold, simple & easy but a change from the ordinary. The other is more traditional. Both are masculine cards – and birthday. Here is the fun fold card…

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.1

The Designer Series Paper is called Well Suited and it is from the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog – which retires 30 June! Some of the coordinating papers for this DSP are Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, Cajun Craze and of course Basic White, which I have used. The stripy piece flips up for additional sentiment.

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.2

And here’s how I created this… the Night of Navy card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. 1/2″ from the left edge, I adhered another panel of Night of Navy cut 2 1/4 x 10 1/2 and scored at 5 1/4. Leaving this panel open, I adhered the Well Suited DSP 4 x 5 1/4 over this and right to the top of the fold on the panel. I then attached the striped pattern of the DSP ( cut 2 x 5). For the Basic White panel, I stamped the sentiment first in Night of Navy ink and that comes from the Days to Remember stamp set. I then stamped the balloons in Cajun Craze ink, also from the Days to Remember stamp set and used the Night of Navy marker to create the tails of the balloons. The balloons on the left were stamped off once. This panel is just a tad wider – 2 1/8 x 5 and adhered in place. Back to the front of the card… I stamped the word happy from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on a Basic White piece then punched it with the Tailored Tag Punch. I punched another from Cajun Craze card stock, cut it in half vertically and adhered it to the back of the tag with liquid glue. I cut a length of Smoky Slate Textured Ribbon, made pointy ends and adhered it on the front flip panel with Seal+. The sentiment banner got dimensionals and was adhered over the ribbon. For a final bit of bling – even guys need bling now & then – I added three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Gems – and the front was complete! Foolish me, I did not take a picture of the back… but I did cut a panel of Basic White 4 x 5 1/4, stamped the large BIRTHDAY in Smoky Slate ink at the bottom left corner, then stamped the scripty word happy in Cajun Craze ink above it. This gave enough writing room for something fun.

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.3

For the envelope, I stamped the scripty word birthday in Smoky Slate ink, along the side, then the word happy in Cajun Craze ink. Both come from Biggest Wish stamp set. The flap was covered in more of the Well-Suited DSP.

Card #2… super simple, still using the Well-Suited DSP and Biggest Wish stamp set.

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.4

Here I used a different piece of the Well-Suited DSP and coordinated it with Pacific Point and Smoky Slate, with a bit of bling using the Metallic Pearls in silver. The card base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2. The DSP is 3 3/16 x 4 1/4 adhered to Pacific Point card stock 3 3/8 x 4 1/4. Both were added to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the large word BIRTHDAY in Smoky Slate ink then the scripty word happy in Pacific Point ink. then added the three Metallic Pearls in silver… and the card front was done!

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.5

For the inside – Well-Suited DSP 5/8 x 4 1/4 adhered with liquid glue to a Pacific Point piece 3/4 x 4 1/4. This was added near the bottom of the inside of the card and the inside was complete.

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.6

For the envelope, I used another panel of the Well-Suited DSP and adhered it to the flap and voila – that was it! Here are the two cards together…

I have really enjoyed playing with the Well-Suited DSP. It has been perfect for many masculine cards. And now that I have played with the Biggest Wish stamp set, it will be used a lot! DANG! just checked and the Well-Suited DSP is sold out!!! That’s good for Stampin’ Up! – not so good for you…
