Stampin’ Up Tea Together Mother’s Day

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?

For today’s card I made another Mother’s Day card for you, trying to focus on clean and simple (well as simple as I get).  I tried to let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Here’s my card.

I was able to join in with 2 challenges with my card today also.  I’ve said before that I love doing challenges.  They give me a starting point when I’m having crafters block. First is the Festive Friday Challenge #0032.  I was able to do both, Mother’s Day and Pink.  Here is their challenge.

Next is The Flower Challenge #31  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to a Powder Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then adhered a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and a smaller panel of Petal Promenade DSP to the left side of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink on the panel of DSP.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 3 of the flower images from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Powder Pink Ink.  I stamped the leaves from the same stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I fussy cut all the images using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the flowers and leaves to the card front using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Forever Lovely stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers and leaves from the same stamp set multiple times in Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Powder Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower and leaves from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide Inks on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Petal Promenade 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.  Don’t miss out on these 2017-2019 In-Colors.  Once they are gone they’re gone.  I used 3 of the retiring In-Colors for my card today.  This beautiful Petal Promenade DSP will be retiring in June too.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Here is the list of stamp sets that WILL be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The stamp sets on this list will not be retiring, they will simply be transitioned to Cling Mount moving forward:

Stampin’ Up April Paper Pumpkin

Goods Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s week?   I’ve had an interesting couple of days.  For some of you that know me, I had to have shoulder surgery Wednesday.  Last June I tore my rotator cuff and the surgeon said he had to do a lot of repairing of my biceps.  I’ve been with one arm for the past few months waiting till I could make an appointment to get it repaired.   With that being said, I am 1 armed right now in a sling and all bandaged up.  I’m typing with one hand, luckily I’m a pretty good typist and I made all these cards with one hand.  The most challenging part was trying to make bows, but I was determined and I did it.  I’m the type of person that nothing will stop me.  I’m very determined and stubborn and I won’t let anything get me down.   I was determined to have a card ready to blog for you for today and I not only made 1, but I made 9 along with a case to hold them.  It’s the April Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Take a look.

I don’t really have my normal step by step instructions for you, but I have the pictures of all the cards inside and out.

After I made all the cards I made the box that came with the kit for the cards to go in.  The Stampin’ Up Paper Pumpkin Kits come with everything you need.  Of course I had to add some extras, because that’s what I do.  Your 1st kit comes with a clear block and you use that block for all future sets.  Everything comes cut for you, all adhesives are included.  Each kit comes with a new stamp set, ink spot, envelopes, embellishments and step by step instructions.  These kits are great for on the go.  They are perfect for new stampers that want to get their feet wet without investing in too much to see if they like stamping (but who doesn’t like creating beautiful cards).

A couple of them I followed the instructions, but again those who know me know I do my own thing.  I never have 2 cards exactly the same.  I’ve never liked duplicating cards.  Even when I make my Christmas cards, if I’m sending out 50, it’s 50 different cards.

I added sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set to the Mother’s Day cards.

I made a couple of them into birthday cards.

And stamped the inside with sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set.

I made a couple of them into thank you cards.

And stamped the inside with sentiments from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Stamp Set.

The last ones I made into thinking of you and best wishes.

And stamped the insides with sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  This just goes to show that even someone with only 1 arm can make cards.  I did cut liners for the inside of each card and it was easier than I thought it would be.  I hope you liked my cards and would consider subscribing to the Paper Pumpkin.  If you are interested in subscribing, click here.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and those who celebrate, have a Blessed Easter.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Soon To Retire Birthday Sentiments

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is right around the corner, is anyone doing anything special for Easter?

For today’s card I used another soon to retire set,  Stampin’ Up Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set.  I am really going to miss this set.  I just love the large images, they are great for coloring. Here’s my card.

With the colors I chose for my card, I was able to play along with Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge #312.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the large image from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using my Call Me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and made a banner out of it.  I edged the banner using my Call Me Clover Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered it to the artwork using Glue Dots.

Using my Big Shot, I ran a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock through using the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I wrapped a piece of the Lovely Lipstick Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the Call Me Clover and Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the birthday cake image from the Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Stamp Set (retiring June 3rd), in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the birthday cake.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the birthday cake on the envelope front and the scrolls on the envelope flap from the Amazing Life stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you are really liking the stamp set I used, don’t wait to get it The retired items sell out pretty quickly.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  I thought spring was here, then just like that the air feels like fall again.  I’m really ready for the warmer weather now, how about you?

For today’s card I used a set that will be retiring as of June 3rd.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest Stamp Set.  I’m really going to miss this set.  When I see lemons I think of the warmer weather and lemonade.   Here’s my card.

I joined in with the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #333.  Here is their sketch

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and adhered a piece of the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (retiring June 3rd) using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink towards the left side.  I adhered the whisper white panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail.I adhered a piece of the Flax Ribbon to the card front then adhered a thin strip of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock over the ribbon using Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted sentiment panel over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the whole lemon image from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink.  I stamped the leaves from the same stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.  I cut the lemon and the leaves out using the Lemon Builder Punch (also retiring June 3rd).  I adhered the leaves to the back of the lemon using Glue Dots then the lemon to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the lemon slice from the same stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink stamping off once over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lemon and the leaves from the Lemon Zest stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Gingham Gala 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 Tea Together Fun Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, the weekend is upon us and I’m heading out for OnStage to meet up with some of my wonderful team members, YAY!!!  I really can’t wait to see the new catalog.  I’ve seen a sneak peek of the cover and some of the goodies people got in New Zealand already. I know I’m in trouble.  I’m going to want it all.

For today’s card I made another quick and easy card and it’s a Fun Fold.  Take a look.

I started with a Balmy Blue card base and scored it at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″.  I adhered a piece of the Balmy Blue Subtles 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the top portion of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tea cup image from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the rose buds from the same stamp set on the tea cup.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the tea cup out using my Tea Time Framelits Dies (which will be available in the new Annual Catalog).  I then colored the tea cup and flowers in using my Balmy Blue, Old Olive and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I took one of the Pearlized Doilies and colored it in with my Pool Party Stampin’ Blend Marker so that it wasn’t a striking white against my Very Vanilla tea cup.  I adhered the doily to the top half of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the tea cup to the doily using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the top part of the cup.

On the bottom half of the card front I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped a few of the rose bud images from the same stamp on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Using my Big Shot I cut them out with the Tea Time Framelits Dies and colored them in using my Balmy Blue and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a couple on the bottom of the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tea cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink stamping off once on a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the tea cup.  I adhered a thin strip of the Subtle 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered a couple more of the rose buds to the bottom using Glue Dots.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the tea cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set inside the tea cup in Balmy Blue Ink.  I adhered a piece of the Subtle 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Fun Fold cards can be very fun, quick and easy just like this one.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Die Cutting & Embossing Product Line Changes

Big News!!  Stampin’ Up! has just announced that they’ll be transitioning to a new manufacturer for their dies and embossing folders moving forward!

Stampin’ Up! is moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that they will work directly with the factories who manufacture their dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives them greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Yay!

TRANSITION TO NEW DIE-CUTTING AND EMBOSSING LINE

Here’s a look at how this transition will unfold:

Through June 3, 2019 Die and Folder Supply: While Supplies Last and Interruptions·  Inventory on some retiring dies may be depleted before the end of the 2019 occasions and 2018–2019 annual catalog sales period; Stampin’ Up! will not replenish inventory on any retiring dies and folders that sell out.·  Inventory on some dies and folders carrying over into the 2019–2020 catalog may be depleted; if this happens, they may go on backorder or may not be available to order until they have replenished the inventory.
April 15–June 3, 2019 Retiring List·  The old-style die-cutting & embossing machine will be on the retiring list while supplies last. This also includes related products such as plates and platforms.·  Dies and embossing folders included on the retiring list will not be offered in the new catalog in any format.

·  Dies and standard embossing folders NOT included on the retiring list will be carried over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Stampin’ Up! will use up their current inventory before starting to ship new-style dies, so even if you place an order in 2020, you might receive an old-style die or folder.

Beginning June 4, 2019 2019–2020 Annual Catalog·  All new dies and embossing folders (denoted with a “New” icon in the catalog) will be produced by their new supplier and made in the new style with a different and high-quality product design.·  For carryover dies and non-3D embossing folders, Stampin’ Up! will use up their current inventory before starting to ship new-style dies, so even if you place an order in 2020, you might receive an old-style die or folder.

·  All new and carryover 3D embossing folders will be produced by their new supplier and made in the new style with a different and high-quality product design.

·  Carryover 3D embossing folders (previously named Dynamic) will not be available to order beginning with the catalog launch but they are in process on getting these ready to go and they’ll be available as soon as possible. Stampin’ Up! will let you know when they are ready.

·  No die-cutting & embossing machine will be available for purchase from Stampin’ Up! in the 2019–2020 annual catalog.

HIGHLIGHTS: NEW-STYLE DIES AND EMBOSSING FOLDERS

Since Stampin’ Up! is using a new supplier for their dies and embossing folders, they’ll be manufactured differently, which means the way you use them will be a little different. A few of the changes between the old-style and new-style products are listed below. In the future, Stampin’ Up! will also provide videos to show how to craft with the new-style dies and embossing folders and better showcase the features described below.

Here are some of the changes you’ll notice with our new-style dies and embossing folders:

  • The new-style open dies (those that coordinate with stamps) use a high quality metal that’s thinner than before but still as strong and durable.
  • The new-style dies have an added lip to the inside of the blades.
  • On old-style dies, when you place an open die (dies that coordinate with stamps) over a stamped image, a small border of cardstock is visible around the stamped image. With new-style dies, the die hugs the edge of the stamped image. Instead of aligning the die to the space around the stamped image, you will align it to the edges of the stamped image. When the image is cut, there will still be a cardstock border around the image.

OLD STYLE ALIGNMENT

2019_DIE_COMPARISON__3

NEW STYLE ALIGNMENT

2019_DIE_COMPARISON__2
2019_DIE_COMPARISON__4
  • They’ve improved the adhesive that secures the dies to the insert sheet in the package so that it’s not too sticky. It’s easier to remove dies from the insert sheet, and the adhesive won’t cling to the dies.  (1,000 Yay’s for this update!!)
  • They’ve standardized the size of the die inserts for easier storage. There are now only two insert sizes: 5″ x 7″ (12.7 x 17.8 cm), which coordinate in size with the stamp cases, and 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm). The standard sizes will allow uniform storage in whatever system you use. The envelopes that the dies come in will be slightly larger.
  • With old-style Dynamic folders, they recommended that you spritz cardstock before embossing to soften the fibers so you got a better impression. Now, that extra step will not be necessary because the new-style folders usually create a crisp impression without spritzing. The way the new folders are manufactured also gives options for more detailed and intricate designs in the future.
  • 3D folders are thinner than the old-style Dynamic folders. Because they are thinner, you will need to use a shim, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use.

I’m really excited about the new product line and can’t wait to get my hands on them this weekend!  I’ll be sharing photos and details just as soon as I can!


Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

Stampin’ Up! will be retiring the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. As most of you know, they’ve experienced challenges with their supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but they do not currently have an estimated timeframe.

While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, Stampin’ Up! has ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help customers during this transition away from their current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion.

  • When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available).
  • From now until September, intermittent shipments of blades will be received from the supplier. Throughout these months, Stampin’ Up! anticipates times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.

Price Increases in the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog

Stampin’ Up! will also be doing so pricing changes in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Here is the note that they’ve posted and you can find a link to the new price list below:

We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers.

Lots of updates today!!  Let me know if you have questions.  I’m thrilled that we’re going to have some new products coming our way soon!!

Stampin’ Up Petal Promenade Tea Together Quick and Easy Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Another week almost gone and only 1 day till I leave for OnStage and get to see the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  I can’t wait to share some of the new goodies with you.

If you want that new catalog then you need to be sure you’re on my mailing list! How do you do that? If you’ve placed an order in the last year (from June 2018 – May 2019), you’re on it!  If you haven’t ordered from me and you aren’t working with another demonstrator, you can get on my mailing list by heading over to my Online Store and getting an order in for $50 or over.  You need to get your order in by May 1st to be in my 1st mailing of the catalogs.

Now for today’s card, which is why I think you are here,  I have a Super Simple Quick and Easy card for you.  This is a perfect card for beginners.  Take a look.

I wanted to focus on some RETIRING items on my card. The retired list will be coming out next week so be sure to stay tuned. If there is something you like that will be retiring you best to grab it while you can. The first things to sell out are usually the In-Color Paper, Ink and Refills.

I started with a piece of the beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in the center.  I adhered it to a Berry Burst mat using Snail.

I then adhered it to a Powder Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Stamp Set in Powder Pink Ink on a panel of Whisper White Cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink over the image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to the inside of the Powder Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Powder Pink Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Petal Promenade DSP to the envelope flap.

Now wasn’t that a super quick and easy card?  I took me all of 5 minutes to put this together.  I hope you liked this and will give it a try.  This is a perfect design if you like to make multiple cards to sent out and don’t have a lot of time.  I did use all paper and inks that will be retiring in June.  Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide will be retiring as of June 3rd.  If you really like any of these colors, grab them now before it’s too late.  This includes the paper, inks, ink refills, ribbons and DSP.  Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Easter Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  Was everyone able to hop around our Blog Hop yesterday?  There were some pretty amazing projects there.

For today’s card I made one last Easter card.  I really need to get these in the mail.  I used the Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Stamp Set and the Cross Of Hope Framelit Dies.  Take a look.

I started by adhereing a panel of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail.  –  Just a little side note.  The annual catalog will be coming to an end the beginning of June.  The 2017-2019 In-Colors will be leaving.  These include Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide.  If you are wanting any of these colors in the cardstock, inks, Stampin’ write markers or ink refills get them fast.  These are the first items to usually sell out.

I adhered the matted DSP to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot, I cut a solid cross from the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies out of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I then cut the detailed cross from the same die set out of the Champagne Foil Sheet.  I adhered the detailed cross to the solid cross using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the cross to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I cut the banner out  using my Cross of Hope Framelit Dies.  I adhered the banner over the cross using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the solid cross from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the foliage from the same stamp set around the corners in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the butterfly by the cross in Fresh Fig Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the  Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the foliage from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Wood Textures 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!!
