*********************************************************************************************************

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! Happy Labels Patchwork

Good Tuesday morning stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend and Memorial Day? It was a gorgeous weekend and Memorial Day here. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. Perfect day to be outside for a picnic and for the bike races, although it was a bit breezy.

Those that know me know that I like layers on my cards. I have a lot of trouble doing simple 1 layer cards. Today’s card is no different, there’s a lot of layers. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Labels Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Petal Park Photopolymer Stamp Set, Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper, Stylish Shapes Dies and Basics 3 D Embossing Folder for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Happy Labels stamp set in Boho Blue Ink on the bottom of a panel of Basic White. I embossed the panel using the Basics 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Night of Navy mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Stylish Shapes Dies, I cut 9 of the smallest squares from panels of Countryside Inn DSP. I adhered the die cut squares to a panel of Basic White using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the patchwork panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to a Boho Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered card front to a Boho Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few 2023-2025 In-Color Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Labels stamp set in Boho Blue Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the small flower image from the Petal Park stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat then to the inside of the Boho Blue card base.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Petal Park stamp set in Boho Blue Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Countryside Inn DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork7 creativestampingdesigns.com

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

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Daisy Hello

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy Memorial Day. I hope you can enjoy your day with family and friends getting together for a picnic or some fun activities. Please take a moment to remember all those who have served for us. We’ll be having a small picnic today with some friends and family. We’ll be celebrating my daughter and puppy’s birthday. My husband and a few of his friends will be walking into town to watch some of the Tour de Somerville bike races. This is a big thing here on Memorial Day in my town, hundreds of people come from all over the world to race in this. They start closing the streets in town at 3am to get set up. For 13 years I walked with my girl scouts in the parade at 8am that kicked everything off. They now start all the races at 8am starting with the family fun races. The big pro womans race starts at 2:15, having to ride 25 miles, and the pro men’s race starts at 3:45, having to ride 50 miles. It’s very exciting watching hundreds of riders starting the races and then how many are left at the end. From what I’ve heard there is a waiting list of contenders to get in on this. They have the award ceremony around 6pm that wraps everything up, with winners from both the pro womans and pro men’s races.

Today’s card is a sketch challenge from my Upline Jaimie. She’s been giving us a sketch a week to work with. I’m really liking this quick and easy one. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper and Designer Tags Dies for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to a Lemon Lolly mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from Sending Smiles stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of the panel. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered 3 panels of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to 3 Lemon Lolly mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 3 layered panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Lemon Lolly 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon from the Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack around the layered panel and tied a bow.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to a Pebbled Path card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using the Designer Tags Dies, I cut a butterfly from a panel of Lemon Lolly cardstock. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Glue Dots. I added a couple 2023-2025 In-Color Dots to the butterfly. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Pebbled Path Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the larger stem from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the side of the panel. I stamped the daisy image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Lemon Lolly Ink on the stem. I stamped the flower center in Wild Wheat Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Lemon Lolly mat then to the inside of the Pebbled Path card base.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelop front. I stamped the daisy on the stem in Lemon Lolly Ink and the flower center in Wild Wheat Ink. I adhered a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

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! Happy Hedgehogs Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is your weekend going? I hope you are finding time for yourself and doing some fun activities. It was super busy yesterday at the hardware store, selling grills, charcoal and paint. I’m hoping it’s busy at the dog bakery today, so the day flies by.

I was going through my stamp sets for today’s card and pulled an older one out that I like to play with. Here’s my card for today.

I colored the images using Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

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! Inked & Tiled for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my fun fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I hope you are ready for a long weekend. I’ll be at work, but I do have off on Monday and we’re planning on having a picnic/birthday all day. Today is my daughter’s birthday and every year we celebrate on Memorial Day. This year she has to share her celebration with Coraline, my puppy. Coraline turned 1 today.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. I was a little bit of a hot mess, but I made it through. It just wasn’t my day for a live starting with having technical difficulties. 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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Inked & Tiled Cling Stamp Set along with the Inked Botanicals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and Nested Essentials Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting the 3″ X 5 1/4″ panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the largest Nested Essentials Dies. I folded the panel on the 1″ score line, placed the die above the fold line so that it wouldn’t cut the fold and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I adhered the die cut panel to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, so that it would fold over the Z-Fold.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White, I stamped the leaf image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink 3 time, stamping off twice on scrap paper before stamping on the panel each time. I stamped the flower image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set over the leaf images. I inked the flower image using Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Marker for the stem and leaves, Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker for the flowers and I used Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers for highlights on the flowers. I gave it a couple huffs to reactivate the ink before stamping. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a small bow with the1/4″ Petal Pink Ribbon from the Ribbon Duo Combo Pack and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot. I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the top of the panel.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 2nd largest die from the Nested Essentials Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink. I stamped the small flower image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set on either side of the sentiment. I used Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Markers for the stems and Calypso Coral & Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers for the flowers. I adhered the sentiment panel to the Petal Pink flap using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Ombre Matte Decorative Dots to the panel.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the small flower image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set on the bottom of the panel. I inked it using Lost Lagoon and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered a strip of Inked Botanicals DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat then to the inside left side of the Petal Pink card base. I adhered a panel of Inked Botanical DSP to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the inside back of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink twice on the envelope front, stamping off twice on scrap paper each time. I stamped the flower image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set over the leaf images. I inked the flower using Lost Lagoon, Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered a panel of Inked Botanicals DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Circle Sayings for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s sketch.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Circle Sayings Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Irresistible Blooms Cling Stamp Set, Hello Irresistible 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the 2″ Circle Punch for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Hello Irresistible DSP to a Lost Lagoon mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a smaller panel of the Hello Irresistible DSP to a Lost Lagoon mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White, I stamped the banner sentiment from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink. I wanted the sentiment to fit the smaller punch, so I bent it a little to fit before stamping. I stamped the flower image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off on scrap paper, under the sentiment. I stamped the smile sentiment from the Circle Sayings stamp set over the flower in Lost Lagoon Ink. I punched the sentiment out using the 2″ Circle Punch. I adhered 2 pieces of Lost Lagoon 1/4″ Bordered Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the circle sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Loose Frosted Dots using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the sun burst image from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink above the sentiment. I stamped the flower image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Lost lagoon mat then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already. I hope you are all having a good week.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. We have a new fun challenge this week.  The inspiration photo #196 is Patriotic Picnic. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set along with the Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folder and Bright & Beautiful 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered Card. I was inspired by the stars and stripes in the photo along with the Colors and Flowers.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge 196.  How are you inspired by the photos?

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by inking up the Stripes Embossing Folder, from the Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folder, with Real Red Ink. I ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine on a Basic White card front. I did this twice to get the top and bottom of the panel. I adhered the embossed panel to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Bright & Beautiful DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers using Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the script image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink multiple times on the panel over the flower, stamping off on scrap paper twice before stamping on the panel.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the scalloped die from the Zany Zoo Dies, I cut a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I adhered the scalloped strip behind the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Blueberry Bushel cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I colored the flowers with the Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splatter image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the flowers, stamping off on scrap paper first. I adhered a strip of Bright & Beautiful DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat then to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the flowers with the Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splatter image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the flowers. I adhered a panel of Bright & Beautiful DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Sea Turtle Birthday and DSP Sale Coming In June

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends and Happy World Turtle Day!!! My daughter LOVES turtles and has a very large collection of them. She wants to swim with the turtles one day and I told her I’d do that with her. How many turtle lovers are out there?

In honor of World Turtle Day, I’ve made a turtle card for today. Now I’m not sure which card my daughter will get for her birthday at the end of the week. She loves Chemistry and Turtles, and I’ve made both birthday cards. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sea Turtle Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sea Turtle Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set, Basics 3 D Embossing Folder and the Hello Irresistible 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Sea Turtle Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by randomly stamping the bubble image from the Sea Turtle stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink on the Lost Lagoon card front. I embossed the panel using the Basics 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Sea Turtle Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a square panel of Hello Irresistible DSP, I stamped the sand dollar image from the Sea Turtle stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I stamped the fish image from the Sea Turtle stamp set on another panel of the Hello Irresistible DSP, in Calypso Coral Ink. I sprinkled it with Clear Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I stamped the starfish image from the Sea Turtle stamp set in Wild Wheat Ink on the last square of Hello Irresistible DSP. I sprinkled the image with Clear Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I adhered the 3 squares to 3 Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Sea Turtle Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the 2 3/8″ Circle Punch, I punched a panel of Hello Irresistible DSP. I stamped the small detail turtle image from the Sea Turtle stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink. I sprinkled the image with Clear Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the punched circle to the Basic Whtie circle mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a panel of Basic White cardstock, I cut the sentiment mat using the Wanted To Say Dies. From a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock, I cut the sentiment from the Wanted To Say Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the mat using Multipurpose Liqui Glue. I adhered the layered sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Sea Turtle Birthday 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the bubble image from the Sea Turtle stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the sides of the panel. I stamped the small detail turtle image from the Sea Turtle stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the bottom of the panel. I flipped the image over and stamped the solid turtle image in Pretty Peacock Ink over the detailed image, stamping off once on scrap paper. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Lost Lagoon mat then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base.

Stampin' Up! Sea Turtle Birthday 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bubble image from the Sea Turtle stamp set on the envelope front in Lost Lagoon Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the small detail turtle image from the Sea Turtle stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink. I flipped the stamp over and stamped the solid turtle image in Pretty Peacock Ink over the detailed image, stamping off once on scrap paper. I adhered a panel of Hello Irresistible DSP to the envelope flap.

MY CURRENT HOST CODE IS:   BR9XGSTC

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.
