Updates To The Online Store For Sale-a-bration!

To enhance the shopping experience, Stampin’ Up! is making improvements to the online store—specifically the process of selecting Sale-A-Bration items while shopping.  During the August to September Sale-a-bration event, the earned Sale-A-Bration items will be selected during the checkout process.

Here are some visuals that will walk you through the new checkout process:

Add your items to the shopping basket and add your host code just like you normally do.  Beginning on August 3, once your order reaches $50, you will see a note at the top of the shopping basket page about redeeming your Sale-a-bration items at checkout.  Once all of the items have been added to your order, click pink the “checkout” button on the right side of the screen.

The next page will show you how many Sale-a-bration items you’ve earned and if you’ve earned the free host exclusive stamp set, that will be shown on this page too.  To start redeeming your free items, click the “+” sign to the right of the headings.

Click the little shopping basket image under the free product(s) that you’d like to add to your order.  If you change your mind, click the small icon to the right of the shopping cart button with the “x” on it.  That will remove the item from your cart and allow you to add something else.

If you’ve earned a level 2 item, click the “+” arrow to the right of that heading and those items will appear as options to add to your cart.

If you’ve earned the free host stamp set with an order of $300+, you can click the “+” button to the right of the header to add that item to your cart.

Once you’ve added your items to the cart, the “continue” button on the upper right will turn pink and you can click on it and then check out like you normally would.  If you don’t want the free items, you can chose to “check out without using my rewards” but you will not be able to cash in those free items later.  So make sure that you add the items that you’d like before you check out!

Hopefully these changes will make the store easier to use and navigate for Sale-a-bration!  You’ll see the addition of the Sale-a-bration items to the checkout process beginning on August 3 and running through September 30.  Let me know if you have questions as you start placing those orders on Tuesday!

HAPPY SHOPPING!!!

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Fall Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Does everyone know what today is? It’s the eve of the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog going live!!! I hope you have your lists ready to go. I’ll be up bright and early tomorrow morning to get my order placed.

Today’s card uses a set from the new catalog. I think it’s one of my favorites. This is also another one of the cards we will be making tomorrow night at my class. One of the ladies asked if we could make something fall with this stamp set. I love when they give me ideas of what they want. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate With Flowers Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a smaller panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate With Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I stamped the bottom image of the girl from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the sentiment. I stamped the top image on top of the bottom image, lining them up, in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I also using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the artwork to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate With Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I adhered a strip of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. This set will be available tomorrow, Tuesday August 3rd, when the catalog goes live. Is it on your list? Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Thinking of You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Friendship Day and Happy August. I can’t believe it’s August already. I’m not ready to be winding down the summer yet, I need at least 3 more months. How is everyone’s weekend going? I had to go back to work twice yesterday since the mail was so late. The good thing was, I was all by myself in the office so I brought my dog with me to hang out. She wasn’t sure about the situation and was just sniffing and pacing all around the office. She did get some visitors and a lot of pets though.

Today’s card is similar to yesterday’s card, another CAS one. You have to let me know in the comments which card you like better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today. This is such an awesome pack of DSP and you can get it until Tuesday on sale for 15% off, I may just have to order another pack. It’s one of my favorites.

I started by stamping the Daisy Garden image on a panel of In Good Taste DSP in Bumblebee Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Did you know that you can make any color embossing powder just by using our inks and the Clear Embossing Powder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set on the top of the card front panel in Just Jade Ink. I adhered the card front to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the Daisy Garden image on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off on scrap paper once. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink over the daisy image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the Daisy Garden image on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Bumblebee Ink. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Anniversary

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend and Happy End of July. Hope you have something fun planned. Looks like it’s going to be a beauty here, upper 70’s and sunny. It was beautiful sleeping last night, it was in the low 50’s. I shut off the A/C, opened the windows and turned on my attic fan. I got to fall asleep listening to the crickets, lol.

Today’s card is a quick and easy one that I think we will be making at our class on Tuesday night. Actually today and tomorrow’s card are very similar, you have to let me know which one you like better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card. This DSP is one of the 9 that are on sale until Tuesday for 15% off. Now’s the perfect time to stock up and save.

I started by stamping the Daisy Garden image in Versamark Ink on a panel of In Good Taste DSP. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. For a little stability, I adhered the card front to a panel of Bumblebee cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Bumblebee 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink and cut it out using my Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the Daisy Garden image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the daisy image. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped part of the Daisy Garden stamp on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Twist and Turn for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all weekend in the office, last day of the month and 1st day of the month. Today I’m finally going to get to work in my garden. My yard has been sprayed for those annoying bugs, so hopefully I won’t get eaten alive again. I’m very excited about redoing my garden in case you can’t tell.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for today’s card.

This is the template for my card.

I started by scoring a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock. On the 8 1/2″ side I scored at 2 3/4″ & 4″. I turned the cardstock a 1/4 turn and scored on the 5 1/2″ side at 2 3/4″. With the longer part down I scored on a diagonal from the bottom center line to the top outside in the small scored section. See diagram above. I folded and burnished both ways on all the score lines. I folded the shorter side back and in half on the longer side. I carefully folded on the diagonal lines and pushed the bottom corner in. This is much easier to understand by watching the video since it’s very hard to explain.

I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Harvest Dies.

I adhered a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the flower to the cork panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Meadow Dies I cut 2 of the 1/2 butterfly one from a panel of Fresh Freesia Shimmer Vellum Paper and one from a panel of Ombre Specialty Paper. I adhered the butterflies together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the body part of the butterfly. I fluffed the wings and adhered the butterfly to the Cork Specialty Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Brushed metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the image in using my Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Products used for my card will be available Tuesday August 3rd from the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. If you would liked a copy of the catalog, drop me a line at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com with your name and address and I will mail one to you. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under this post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Birthday for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Bundle along with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my card today.

These are our colors for this week.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Getting Sketchy #262.

I started by adhering a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 2 panels of You’re A Peach DSP using the Ornate Layers Dies. I cut the 2 panels in half and adhered them to a Calypso Coral mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This was how I was able to make the strips long enough for my card front. I adhered the 2 layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the trio of peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set on the stem image in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with my Dauber in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the trio peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the peach trio out using my Peach Dies. I cut 2 of the leaf dies from the Peach Dies out of a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I adhered the leaves to the back of 2 of the die cut peaches using a Glue Dot then adhered them to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Mango Melody Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the peach trio image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on the stems. I stamped the sentiments from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a couple Mango Melody Artistry Blooms Adhesive- Backed Sequins to the Basic White panel.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on the envelope front. I stamped the stem/leaves in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the peach. I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Anniversary

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend and a new month. I can’t believe July is just about over

Today I have a card that could be used as either an Anniversary Card or a Wedding Card. I made mine into an Anniversary Card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set and the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP to a Copper Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered another panel of the Simply Elegant Spec. DSP to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Copper Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots, (available Aug 3rd), to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the flourish image from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Versamark Ink on the top corner of a Very Vanilla panel. I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel. I adhered a strip of the Simply Elegant Spec DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Etched In Nature Update – Discontinued

Stampin’ Up! provided us with the following update about the Etched In Nature stamp set:

  • After final review, it has been decided that because the Etched in Nature Stamp Set (item 155463) performs below expectation, it will not be reactivated for sale. Although this stamp set will remain printed on page 101 of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, it will not be available to order during the catalog period. We’re sad to see this one go, but it’s important that our products perform to expectation. Thank you for your patience as we’ve completed our review.

So sorry to those who have been waiting for this stamp set, it won’t be available after all.

Stampin’ Up! Seascape Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you’re doing something fun. I’ll be at the dog bakery today. Hopefully it will be a nice day and a lot of dogs will come in to visit and buy treats.

Today’s card my sons girl friend asked me to make. She needed a masculine birthday card with fish. Here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Bundle along with the Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper and the Diorama Dies.

I played along with TGIF Challenge #326.

I started by adhering a panel of the Expressions In Ink DSP to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the larger fish image from the Stampin’ Up! Seascapes Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink a couple times on the DSP panel.

I stamped the school fish image from the Seascapes stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the Shaded Spruce panel and Pear Pizzazz Ink on the Pear Pizzazz panel of cardstock. I cut the panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Layering Diorama Dies (cutting the shaded spruce with the larger one). I adhered the Shaded Spruce panel on top of the Pear Pizzazz panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a panel of the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper I cut the large fish image using the Sea Life Dies. I adhered the fish to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Turtle Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Gold Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the seaweed image again in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the Shaded Spruce image. I stamped the fish image from the Seascape stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set on Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Shaded Spruce and Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the larger fish image from the Seascape stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Expressions In Ink DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

July-December 2021 Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on August 3 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of August 9.

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $25.00 plus $5.00 for 1st Class Mail shipping

You will receive one 6×6 sheet of each design from the following new DSP packs (the number behind the name indicates how many 6×6 sheets of that paper pack you will receive):

  • Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ – 12
  • Painted Christmas – 6
  • Whimsy & Wonder Specialty – 6
  • Sweet Stockings – 6
  • Peaceful Place Specialty – 6
  • Blackberry Beauty Specialty – 6
  • Cute Halloween 6″ x 6″ – 8
  • Harvest Meadow – 6
  • Heartwarming Hugs – 6 (returning)
  • Kraft 6″ x 6″ – 2
  • Brushed Metallic – 3 (returning)
  • Red & Green Foil Sheets – 2 (returning)
  • Silver Foil Specialty Pack – 3 (one of each)
  • Snowy White Velvet Sheets – 1
  • Gold Shimmer Vellum – 1
  • Cork Specialty Paper – 1 ***please note that Cork paper will be approximately 6″ x 6″ as the sizes of the original papers may vary slightly.

In all, you’ll receive 75 – 6” x 6” sheets of new designer or speciality paper!

Double DSP Share – $50 + $7.75 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, that’s fine too.  I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the Gingerbread & Peppermint, Cute Halloween and Kraft 6″ × 6″, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

Anyone is welcome to join in my share (please note, I can only ship to addresses within the US).  If you’d like to join, either complete the form below or email the following information to creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com

  • Your first and last name
  • The email address that is connected to your PayPal account. I only accept PayPal for payment.  ***You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay the invoice, you can choose to pay by credit card without having a PayPal account.

FREE Gift From Me! – As a bonus for joining my share, you’ll also get a sampler of some of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper Packs!

Deadline to sign up for my share is Sunday, August 1 at 5:00 PM ET.
