Last Day to Sale-a-brate …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you got a chance to look at the two cards I posted yesterday … One masculine, one feminine and both using the Well Said stamp set.  These are some very uncharted times that we are going through and I know some of you, like me have lost your jobs or are displaced for a while, but I wanted to make sure I shared / reminded those of you who wanted to place an order during Sale-a-bration.

That today … Is the last day to place your qualifying order for your favorite Sale-a-bration item!

It’s also the last day to qualify for the extra goodies in your starter kits …

You’ll get all the goodies shown above plus $125 worth in products of your choice for only $99 (FREE SHIPPING)  Best Offer I’ve seen … get approximately $185+ worth of merchandise for the $99 + tax.  That’s better than a 30% Kohls coupon or 40% off one product at the Lobby!!

Just a reminder since today is the last day, that Paper Pumpkin Pre-Paids also qualify for Sale-a-bration items …

Supply List

I have not, nor will I ever be a high pressure sales person … My joy is sharing with you the beauty and enjoyment of stamping, whether you follow my blog, are in one of my clubs, or are a member of my Stars group.
We are all in this together and I hope you enjoy the projects I share with you.  I appreciate you stopping by my blog, and I’ll meet you back tomorrow with a fun new project.
Have a wonderful day ~

I’ll Bee Yours …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well … I did it this time!  On Tuesday night I had a meeting at work and we decided to walk to the meeting place and back, just about the time I got back to my car, my knee gave out. Woooh … haven’t felt that much pain since I herniated the disc in my back!

I actually went to the doctor and he put me on bed rest (which means I can’t get into my stamping room!!) and steroids. He believes it’s arthritis and that I had a flair up.  So … please be patient with me while I work through this. I’m going to do my best to keep you informed through my posts.

Meanwhile, Paper Pumpkin’s first kit of 2020 is all about L-O-V-E. Whether you want handmade favors for Valentine’s Day, a bridal shower, or a remarkably romantic wedding, this kit has your number: 20 treat bags, 10 mini cards and envelopes, and embellishments. It’s everything you need to celebrate your favorite friendships and love stories. So, make it a “LOVE”-ly year with Paper Pumpkin! Watch this how-to video to see the I’ll Bee Yours kit in action.

I love those little bee’s and can’t wait to get my kit in the mail … Maybe it will be here tomorrow, my kids will bring it in and I can play!!

Don’t be afraid to message me for more information about Paper Pumpkin or put your question in the comment box below.  I will tell you that with the purchase of the 3-mo. 6-month or 12 month subscriptions … you will qualify for FREE Sale-a-bration items!

Thank you for checking in with me today… Are you shoveling out like we are? I’m not, I’m on the couch.

Have a wonderful day ~

Cheers Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card for you … straight out of the Annual Catalog!!  I’m sharing this card from my website and it was created with the Time for Tea Bundle found on pages 14 and 15.  You will find an entire product suite on these pages.

Our color pallet includes Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand,  Whisper White and Vellum Cardstock … also included is the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The images were stamped and colored with our Watercolor Pencils before pulling out the Bigshot and cutting out the images with the coordinating die set.  So simply yet so cute!  Did you catch that touch of ribbon behind our greeting? It’s a fun way to highlight your greeting (and use up some scraps!)

I know that the Occasions catalog is amazing … but let’s not forget how many beautiful stamp sets and bundles we have in the Annual Catalog.  And … It’s still Sale-a-bration! We have a few days left, don’t miss out!

Thank you for stopping back today. Enjoy your Monday

Simply Sunday … Spring Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share a touch of “spring” with you. I have two cards that I created using the Sheer Perfection Vellum… I’m so sad this will be gone in a couple of days! I teamed up the Vellum with the “Crazy About You” stamp set and the coordinating “Flower Medallion Punch” on both cards.

000_2106

 

My first card fits well with my “Simply Sunday’s” theme ….

000_2110

Simple flowers with a touch of Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie from the Brights Collection of Markers. The vellum is placed over our Whisper White with a Basic Gray mat … popped up on a Daffodil Delight card base. Add a simple ribbon and your card is complete.

000_2112

Inside I added a bit more of the vellum and created a greeting from the “Crazy about You” stamp set. The stamp set is great for creating your own sayings because it has so much to choose from.

137137G

My second card has a few more steps but still easy to recreate. I again began with the vellum and colored it in with an Old Olive marker … also from the Brights Collection. Because it takes a bit to dry, I dipped it in clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. This gave it some added texture and really made the green pop!

 000_2113

The vellum was mounted on Old Olive and then matted on the Basic Gray, and secured to the Old Olive card base. I used the Oval Collection Framelits for the greeting and topped off the flower with a rhinestone.

000_2114

I finished off the inside with a couple of left over strips of cardstock and stamped the flower in the corner.  There are more great patterns in the vellum, and if you need to put in an order, do it before the Sale-a-bration period ends on Tuesday … don’t miss out.

As for my Stampin’ Tip … I wanted to show you a neat way I was shown to store my Photopolymer sets.

I took the clear sheet with the images on & slide it into my stamp case … make sure that the words are “backwards”, then you can place your photopolymer stamps directly onto the case. They stick just fine.

      000_2107       000_2108

With this set I needed to use both sides of the case, so I slide in a piece of plain white computer paper to block the writing that is on the sleeve.  You could do this to both sides if you like the brighter image on the left.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to visit my blog.

Have a wonderful day ~

Today’s Stampin’ Supply List …

CLICK HERE TO PLACE YOUR ORDER in my online store anytime, or click any of the photos below to go right to that item online.

Simply Sunday … You’re the Best!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have a cute card for you, and as promised I have used the “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer Paper and the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set.

Yesterday you saw Brenda’s swap that showcased sponging on the “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer Paper and I have shared in a previous post (Click here to view) how to create a watercolor background with your Aqua Painters. You can also brayer this fabulous paper but …

today I’m going to show you how simple it is to use your markers and just color!

000_2088

Using my Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo markers (the original Stampin’ Write markers) nothing fancy … I simply colored the first 3 spaces with Pool Party, the next 3 with Bermuda Bay, the next 3 with Island Indigo, then back to Bermuda Bay until all the lines were filled in.

Then I used a “baby wipe” to clean off my specialty paper …. I wiped off the excess in the direction of the lines. Quick & gentle … just enough to get the excess ink off, it also helps soften any lines from my coloring.

000_2088-B

Using my 3 colors from light to dark also created the “Ombre” look… a very popular technique!

I did team up the Sale-a-bration items with the Bundle of the “Petal Potpourri” stamp set and coordinating “Flower Medallion” punch that is in the Occasions catalog – page 23. If Stampin’ Up! bundles it … I purchase it, I love the 15% savings!! Gives me more money to buy more goodies!

To finish off my flower, I added some of our Dazzling Details glitter adhesive (glitter glue) to the center. I think it adds just enough glitter without being over powering.

000_2088-C

How simple was that!? Just image all the color combinations you can do with this simple technique. This paper is amazing … you don’t want to miss out! Our Sale-a-bration period ends March 31st and all you need to do is make a purchase of $50 before shipping & handling and pick the Irresistibly Yours paper for your Sale-a-bration freebie!

I have the list of ingredients for making this card below. just click on any one of them to see more details or go to my on-line store.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.

Have an awesome Sunday!

Today’s Supply List …

Guest Stamper: Brenda M

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I want to share with you a card I received from one of my downline members, Brenda! We had a team meeting last night, and of coarse we stamp and swap … so there will be more beautiful samples I will be sharing with you.

Brenda’s card is a celebration of Sale-a-bration! Her card showcases some of the fabulous items you can get free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration …. and we have less than 2 weeks : (   to get all the freebies we need!

000_2079

Let’s begin with the stunning background piece Brenda created with the “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer series paper. These come white with a glossy white pattern so you can color using a variety of techniques! Brenda created her’s by simply sponging the colors onto the paper and then wiping off any excess…. it really is stunning!

The beautiful butterfly and the flower come from a Sale-a-bration stamp set that was added to the already hefty list of freebies! This is the “Nature’s Perfection” stamp set…

139100G

And last by definitely not least is the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set Brenda used for her greeting. I love this stamp set, it has wonderful “useful” greetings with nice fonts … aren’t we always looking for new and more greetings!

139128G

000_2083

I hope you enjoyed Brenda’s card as much as everyone in our Star’s group did!  I will have more of our swaps to share in the upcoming week.

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for my “Simply Sunday” … I will also be featuring the “Irresistibly Yours” paper and the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set!
