Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Thanks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Yesterday was a long rainy day at work and of course just when we were finally able to leave the sky opened up. Today I have my in person quarterly meeting which I’m excited about.

My card today is the card I designed for our quarterly meeting to demo and hopefully others will be stamping along. The design of today’s card is what we will be making, but I’ll be using different DSP. I’ll show the actual card tomorrow and you will be able to see by just changing the DSP it changes the whole card. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Thanks 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Texture Chic Suite from page 98 of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Thanks 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Texture Chic Designer Series Paper to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Petal Pink card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the 2 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ panel of Texture Chic DSP into a banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Seal on the left side and in the center of the banner.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Thanks 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the small piece of Soft Succulent cardstock into a banner using the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the small banner to the card front, just under the large banner using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the swish image from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set over the swish in Soft Succulent Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment out using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the banners using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Thanks 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the solid flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink 2 times. I stamped the outline flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I cut the flowers out using the Chic Dies. I cut the outline flower die from the Chic Dies from a panel of Distressed Gold Paper. I adhered the 2 larger outline gold flowers to the solid Petal Pink flowers. I adhered the layered flowers to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the stamped outline flower and the gold outline flowers to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few 2021 – 2023 In-color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Thanks 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the swish image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink over the swish. I stamped the solid flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink on the corners of the panel. I stamped the flower outline image in Soft Succulent Ink over the solid image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Thanks 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower and flower outline images from the Season of Chic stamp set on the envelope front in Petal Pink and Soft Succulent. I adhered a panel of Texture Chic DSP to the envelope flap.

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! Sending Smiles Thank You Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have plans yet? Decorating, putting up your Christmas trees or maybe going to pick out a tree. I’ll be at work all day today and I’m kind of hoping it’s busy so the day will fly by.

I have a winter card today, but not a Christmas card. I’m using a bundle from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and a bundle that will be retiring soon. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Bundle, Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set along with the Snowflake Vellum paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting 2 of the snowflakes from the Frosted Flurry Dies on a panel of Silver Foil Paper. I adhered the die cut snowflake panel to a Snowflake Vellum card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I added adhesive to the back of the Snowflake Vellum panel just where the Silver Foil panel was adhered and adhered the panel to a Tahitian Tide card base.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

From a panel of Basic Black cardstock, I cut the large sentiment out using the Sending Dies. I adhered the sentiment on an angle between the snowflakes on the Silver Foil. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Sending Dies. I adhered the sentiment below the large sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a silver Festive Pearl to the sentiment and Iridescent Pearls to the snowflake centers.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the snowflake images from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Cling Stamp Set in Tahitian Tide Ink, some full strength some stamped off once, around the edges of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat then to the inside of the Tahitian Tide card base.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snowflake images from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

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

Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow, but I have Sunday off so I can attend our quarterly in person meeting. I always look forward to attending the meetings and getting together with team members.

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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight Bundle (available January 5, 2023) along with the Sale-a-bration Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper (available free with a qualifying order starting January 5, 2023) for my card today. Something awesome about the new bundles coming in the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog, is that the stamp set and dies are the same name!!! If you like this bundle and purchase it, you will be able to earn the DSP for FREE. I don’t know about you, but free is my favorite price.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting all the die cut pieces of flowers, stems and leaves using the Dainty Delight Dies from panels of Crushed Curry, Fresh Freesia, Old Olive and Orchid Oasis cardstock. I adhered the stems, flowers and leaves to a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I trimmed off any excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the panel to a small Orchid Oasis card front panel. I adhered the artwork panel to the inside back of the card base so that it overlapped the front of the card.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to a Fresh Freesia mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of an Orchid Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight Cling Stamp Set in Orchid Oasis Ink. I stamped the floral images on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers in using my Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, Orchid Oasis and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue under the card front flap.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the small floral/grass image from the Dainty Delight stamp set in Old Olive Ink along the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral images from the Dainty Delight stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the panel. I colored the floral images in using my Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, Orchid Oasis and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral images from the Dainty Delight stamp set on the envelope front and colored the flowers in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to the envelope flap.

I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends, HAPPY DECEMBER!!! 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 Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Bundle for my card today.

This is our theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by randomly stamping the snowflake images from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink all over the Starry Sky card front. I sprinkled the panel with Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the card front to a Starry Sky card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I used one of the snowflake dies that doesn’t completely cut out the image, from the Frosted Flurry Dies and cut above the sentiment. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Dies.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the Basic White panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the snowflake images from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamped off once or twice in the corners. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Starry Sky mat then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic white Medium Envelope. I stamped the snowflake images from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on the envelope front and flap some stamped full strength and some stamped off.

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! Cottage Wreaths for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. Can you believe it’s the last day of November already? I’ve lost the past 2 months, they have been a blur to me.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo #185 is Christmas Greetings.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Bundle for my card today. I was inspired by the wreath on the door and the colors for my clean & layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #185.  How are you inspired by the photos?

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 4 smaller panels of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to a larger panel making it look like a door. I embossed the panel using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the layered embossed panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the twig wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the small pine bough image from the Cottage Wreath stamp set all around the wreath in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped multiple pine bough images on the Basic White Panel. Using my Country Wreaths Dies, I cut out the wreath and all the pine bough images. I adhered the pine boughs to the wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a panel of Real Red cardstock I cut the bow from the Country Wreaths Dies. I adhered the bow to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the wreath and 1 Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot as a doorknob.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the bow image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Real Red Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bow image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

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

Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone go out shopping on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday? I stayed home Friday and worked Saturday and Sunday. Saturday we were extra busy and the day flew by. Sunday not as much since it wasn’t a very nice day.

I’ve been MIA for a bit and only posting here and there. I’m hoping to be back to my regular schedule and back on track with my blogging. As most of you know I had Covid last month and I’m still suffering a bit from it. Most days when I get home from work I have absolutely no energy to even make dinner. I’m getting a little better and hopefully the worst is past. Now I just have to stay healthy for the rest of the winter. Today’s card is a traditional red and green one that is also pretty quick to make. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Cling Stamp Set and the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Shaded Spruce using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Real Red Glimmer paper from the Real Red & White 6 X 6 Glimmer Paper pack using the largest tag die from the Designer Tags Dies. I cut the inside of the tag using the rose die from the Designer Tags Dies. I adhered the glimmer tag to a panel of Shimmery White Paper. I cut the bottom of the tag so that only the top section had the spot for ribbon. I threaded a piece of Silver Metallic Edge 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon through the tag and tied a knot. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Shimmery White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming The Tree stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I cut both ends of the strip on an angle using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot. I added a Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I made a stencil using the rose die from the Designer Tag Dies from a panel of cardstock. I placed the stencil on the bottom of the panel and used my Blending Brush to add Real Red Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I used the stencil I made from the Designer Tags Dies with my Blending Brush and Real Red Ink to color the rose on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Santa Express Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Did everyone make sure to wear stretchy pants before sitting down for dinner? Ours was very nice and quiet and I didn’t overeat. Today is one of those days I DO NOT go out shopping. I pack up all my normal everyday decorations, move my furniture around for the holidays and start bringing my hundreds of boxes of Christmas decorations out of my attic. I used to take the weekend off from work to do all my decorating but being in retail it’s hard to take both days off, so I get just about everything done in 1 day.

I have a quick fun fold for you today using another one of my favorite sets. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Bundle along with the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper. Don’t forget that this DSP is only available while supplies last. The beautiful Gold Swirls have already sold out.

I started scoring and folding a Balmy Blue card base at 1 1/4″ & 5 1/2″. I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I adhered the layered panel to the left front panel of the Balmy Blue card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Lasting Label Punch. From a panel of White Glimmer paper from the Red & White 6 X 6 Glimmer Paper, I cut out 2 sprigs using the Framed Florets Dies. Using my Blending Brush, I added some Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut 5 of the leave from the Framed Florets Dies from the colored panel. I adhered the sprigs to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the sprigs using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the sentiment. I added a few Festive Pearls to the card front.

I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I adhered the layered panel to the narrow-folded right side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink by the sentiment. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Envelope front and colored them with my Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope you are all prepping for a yummy meal today and giving thanks for all that you have no matter how much or little it is. I know I am extremely thankful for my family and all of my stamping and non-stamping friends. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving weather you are hosting or going somewhere. I’ll be home today with my husband and daughter having a small Thanksgiving dinner and just enjoying the day.

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! Joyful Flurry CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Cling Stamp Set along with the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Storybook Gnome DSP to a Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered another panel of Storybook Gnome DSP to 2 strips of White Glimmer Paper from the Red & White 6 X 6 Glimmer Paper using Tear & Tape. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Pacific Point Ink. I embossed the sentiment using the Wintry 3d Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pacific Point mat.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Stars to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the snowflake images from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Pacific Point Ink around the sentiment, some stamped off once and some twice. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside of the Pacific Point card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snowflake images from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on the envelope front. Some stamped off once and some twice. I adhered a panel of Storybook Gnomes DSP to the envelope flap.

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.
