Stampin’ Up! Lazy Days

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Before I get to my card, I want to remind you that the Last Chance Product Sale only has 6 days left. The 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and the January-April Mini Catalog both end on Monday May 1st. So if you haven’t gotten those retiring items, you might want to grab them before they are gone. The 2023-2024 Annual Catalog goes live on Tuesday May 2nd. You have less than a week to sign up for my Designer Series Paper Share. My share closes on Sunday April 30th at 5pm. Here’s the information on my share.

2023-2024 Annual Catalog Designer Series Paper Share

Do you want all of the gorgeous new designer papers in the Stampin’ Up! 2023-2024 Annual Catalog but can’t afford everything?  I’m doing a Designer Series Paper Share! What is a Paper Share you ask? It’s a sample of each of the new Designer Series Papers from the Stampin’ Up! 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.  If you were to purchase all of the DSP in the new Annual Catalog, it would cost you over $320.00 plus shipping.

New Designer Series Paper Share – $70.00 plus $8.50 for Priority Mail Shipping

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! 2023-2024 Annual Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on May 2 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 May 8.

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 Annual Catalog!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $70.00 plus $8.50 for Priority Mail shipping

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

Today’s card is a bundle coming in the new catalog. I played with it last week and had to play with it again. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Lazy Days 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lazy Days Bundle (available May 2nd) along with the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper (available May 2nd) for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Lazy Days 2

I started by stamping the floor image from the Stampin’ Up! Lazy Days Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pecan Pie Ink (available May 2nd) on the bottom front or a Thick Basic White card base. Using the Lazy Days Dies, I cut the trellis and 3 railing dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the die cut pieces to a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed off the excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the panel to the front of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Lazy Days 3

On the panel of Basic White, I stamped the rocking chair and table images from the Lazy Days stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the hanging plant image from the Lazy Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out using the Lazy Days Dies. I colored the glasses on the table using Lemon Lolly Stampin’ Blends Markers (available May 2nd). I colored the planter using Granny Apple Green and Pecan Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the hanging plant leaves from the Lazy Days Dies, 2 from Granny Apple Green and 1 from Garden Green. I adhered the rocking chair and table to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the hanging plant using Glue Dots and the leaves Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Lazy Days 4

On the panel of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from the Lazy Days stamp set in Pecan Pie Ink. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Lazy Days 5

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Lazy Days stamp set in Pecan Pie Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the chair from the Lazy Days stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the hanging plant on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using Granny Apple Green and Pecan Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Azure Afternoon mat then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

Stampin' Up! Lazy Days 6

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the chair and table from the Lazy Days stamp set on the envelope front in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the hanging plant on the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images using my Lemon Lolly, Granny Apple Green and Pecan Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Lazy Days 7

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card and maybe this is one of the bundles on your wish list. It’s a lot of fun to play with and make some awesome scenes. Happy Stamping!!


If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your Demonstrator. Just click HERE to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. 


Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately, packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me, and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen


In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! let us know that some of the items in the new catalog will have higher prices when the catalog is launched on May 2.  The prices for all items that are carrying over will continue to be the current catalog prices through May 1.  So now is a great time to stock up on any favorites before the price increases happen in early May!  We have not been told any specifics on the amount that the prices will increase but we have been given a list of items that will increase in price with the new catalog.

Due to increased costs to produce these items, beginning May 2 new prices will be in effect within the following product categories:

To see the updated pricing, check the new 2023–2024 Annual Catalog.  I’ll be mailing out the catalogs in mid-April to my ordering customers so take a peek when it arrives in your mailbox.  So, the good news is that you will have time to order any last-minute items before the new pricing starts once you see the upcoming catalog!
