Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Well today’s the big day.  The new 2019 Occasions Catalog is live and with every $50 order you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item.  This is my favorite Stampin’ Up time of year.  I don’t know about you, but I LOVE free items.

I still have an opening for my online Host Club for January, February and March.  I’m doing it during Sale-A-Bration.  Everyone loves to get free items, why not be the host for a month and get extra free items.  Are you interested in building your Stampin’ Up supplies a little at a time and want to be able to receive host benefits?  An Online Host Club might be the perfect solution for you!  With the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs starting on today, this is a great time to join!

You sign up for a 3 month term and commit to:

  • A $50.00 minimum order each month (which will get you a free Sale-A-Bration item)
  • Place your order by the 20th of each month
  • Using the Host code for each month provided to you in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

A random draw will determine your host month and you are guaranteed:

  • a $150.00 Workshop order during your host month
  • $15.00 minimum of Host Dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host month
  • At the end of the 3 months you will get a gift from me.

If you are interested in joining, please contact me ASAP.  This is a great way to earn some free products and build your Stampin’ Up supplies.

Now on to my card for today.  For today I used some of the new DSP from the Occasions Catalog and a couple of the FREE items you can earn from Sale-A-Bration.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  Using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Marker I drew lines between the checks to make it look like plaid.  I adhered a small piece of the DSP to the left side of a Whisper White card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Grapefruit Grove 1/4″ Organdy Ribbon around the card front on the seem.  I adhered the card front to a Call Me Clover mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  In the upper right corner of the Whisper White panel, I stamped the flies from the So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the Frog riding the unicycle from Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink below the wheel.  I colored the frog and unicycle in using my Basic Black, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the artwork to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail and then to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 1 Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearl next to the sentiment.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the frog from So Hoppy Together stamp set on the bottom portion of the panel and the flies from the same set by the frog.  I colored it in the same as I did for the front of the card.  I adhered a small strip of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Call Me Clover in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail, then adhered it to the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the frog from the So Happy Together stamp set on both sides of the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did on the card.  I adhered a piece of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  This was really a fun card to make and I hope you will give it a try.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Amazing Life for TGIF

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, tomorrow’s the big day.  The new 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration go live.  Does everyone have their wish lists ready?  Mine’s a mile long.

For today’s card I have a fun fold and I played along with the TGIF Challenge #192. Be sure to stop by TGIF to see all the beautiful projects made.  Here is their challenge.

Their challenge was to use Glossy Paper.  Here is what I came up with.  Take a look.

I started with 2 pieces of Glossy White cardstock and did the Shaving Cream Technique on them using Petal Pink, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Ink Refills.  Once the paper was dry, I stamped the sentiment and the cake from Stampin’ Up Amazing Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on them and let the ink dry completely.  Once they were dry I adhered the panel with the sentiment onto the Petal Pink cardstock and the panel with the cake onto the Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I adhered the So Saffron panel to the Soft Sea Foam panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then adhered the Petal Pink cardstock to a So Saffron panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Petal Pink Metallic Ribbon around the Soft Sea Foam side and tied a knot.  I secured the knot with a Glue Dot.  I added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Glossy White artwork panels.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Amazing Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center.  I stamped the scroll from the same stamp set above the sentiment in Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the birthday cake image from Amazing Life stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the envelope flap with the Marble background stamp in Petal Pink Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  All the card cuts and folds are listed below for you.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Vertical Greetings for Paper Craft Crew

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy New Year to you all.  Hope you had fun ringing in 2019.  Has anyone made any New Year’s resolutions?

For today’s card I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #319.  Be sure to stop by Paper Craft Crew to play along and see everyone’s projects.  Here is their sketch.

Here is what I came up with.  Take a look.

I started with a Balmy Blue card base and adhered a piece of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper to the front using Snail.  I then adhered a piece 1/2″ Lovely Lipstick Ribbon from All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack (available in just 2 days).

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Vertical Greeting stamp set.  I colored the stamp in using my Balmy Blue, Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 3 of the smallest hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies in Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I adhered the heats to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel, I stamped the heart from the Vertical Greetings stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink stamping off 3 times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely stamp set (available January 3, 2019), in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail then to the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the image from the Vertical Greetings stamp set on the envelope front the same way I stamped it on the card.  I adhered a piece of All My Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The stamp set is available from the Annual Catalog and the DSP and Framelits Dies will be available on January 3, in just 2 days.   The new 2019 Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog start on January 3, in just 2 days, YAY!  You’re going to love all the new products.   Happy Stamping!
