Bargain Hunters Delight

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m excited to share some of my favorite items that have just been put in the Clearance Rack … time to save some money!!

Let’s begin with the return of some of my favorite In-Colors … not sure which ones I’m more hungry for, the Blueberry Bushel or the Grapefruit Grove! Stampin’ Up! sure picks out some yummy names for colors 🙂

Are you a Designer Paper lover? They’ve just added some great retired Designer and Specialty papers … the first is the “From the Heart” Specialty Designer paper …..

This first card was created with two patterns, the one with the small hearts for a background and the second which was punched with the heart punches which were designed to coordinate with this paper …

I did the same on this card, two patterns and the Heart Doilies which are also on the clearance rack …

The last card has a third pattern for the background, the pretty foil heart which was punched out and the doily!!

The next designer paper is Dino Days … I love this one ❤ I spent time with my great grandson (he’s 5) making dinosaur cards … he loves the die cutting machine!! lol

This designer paper has two of the In-Colors on the Clearance rack “Lovely Lipstick” and “Pineapple Punch” …. AND the Dino Days stamp set and coordinating Dino dies are still in the catalog!

We thought it would be fun to create “Birth Announcements” with Dinosaurs … I thought the designer paper was perfect for it!

We also made a cute “friendship” card using this cute dinosaur paper … looks like they are having a party!!

My last is also my favorite … the sentiment says it all ❤ The designer paper could be used for a number of different occasions.

Take a head over to the Clearance rack and see if there is something that you need in your stamp collection … there are plenty of punches, embellishments, and more!

Thank you for stopping by and checking out what I like.

Have a fun day ~

Life’s Showers, Bring Loves Flowers ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I’m late today with my post … bad router 😦  But I’m back and can’t wait to share today’s card with you.  Yesterday I said I would share cards from the “Under My Umbrella” stamp set … a must have on my Wish List. It was the little “boots” that got me.

Today’s card was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.  She used the small hearts paper from the “From the Heart” Specialty Designer paper, I used the same. I changed the orientation and a few other things to make it my own ….

This is one of the cards that my February Stamp Club made … this card ties in with the products we used last month and introduces the Under My Umbrella bundle.  The bundle includes the stamp set and a punch that punches the umbrella.

Shower your loved ones in good wishes and flowers with the Under My Umbrella Stamp set. Line art images are fun to color and easy to customize for any occasion. The greetings in the stamp set work perfectly for thinking of you, sending love, wedding, or baby projects. Stamp the raindrop or flower images repeatedly to create backgrounds. You can also use them to decorate the umbrellas or the rain galoshes.

We used the stamp set and Real Red ink to stamp onto our designer paper.  We then punched out our umbrella and trimmed it to the stamped lines.  Then we punched an umbrella and handle out of Real Red cardstock and used it to mat the designer paper punched umbrella.  The little boots were fussy cut and then colored with the Real Red Marker.

The greeting and floral stamps were stamped with Momento Ink and colored with our Stampin’ Write Markers (see colors below). Our greeting was punched using the Pretty Label Punch … which also has a Real Red mat.  Rain was stamped in Smoky Slate.

I wish I could tell you the talented demonstrator who inspired me to make this card but her link was not working properly, in other words, it did not direct me to her site. I just had her verbiage translated and discovered it was German.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card … I have another to share with the Under My Umbrella again tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by ~

National Wear Red Day® – Cards dressed in Red!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

On the first Friday of every February, which is designated as American Heart Month, the nation comes together, igniting a wave of red from coast to coast. From landmarks to news anchors and neighborhoods to online communities; this annual groundswell unites millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke. (Taken from the heart.org site)

So … as I wear my red today, I thought it would be fun to share a couple cards dressed in red and highlighting our hearts.  Let’s start sweet -n- simple, this easy to create card uses only 4 items with your cardstock!!  I began with Real Red cardstock for my base and pulled out the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper.  I choose the red & pink heart pattern.

I love the Heart Doilies and decided to use them for this card.  You get pink and red doilies in the pack, and if you flip them over … they are white! So the base is the red doily, then I cut down one down and used the white side to stamp my greeting. The greeting comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set.  I finished this card off with a pretty red bow.

For my second card, I took the red & pink pattern from the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper and flipped it over!  The flip side reveals this cute red foil with pink & white polka dots.

You can easily see that I incorporated the doilies in my second card as well. The pretty foil heart was punched out from another sheet of the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper.  You can use either of the punches in the punch pack on these hearts, I used the scalloped heart punch.

I added a piece of vellum cardstock to highlight the punched heart, and the greeting comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set which bundles with the Heart Punch Pack. A little strip of Whisper White cardstock cut into a banner highlights the greeting.

Our Heartfelt Bundle and coordinating “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper is not just for Valentines, it’s great for your friends, for weddings, baby showers and more. Today it’s to celebrate life … to bring awareness to the fight against heart disease.

Thank you so very much for sharing a part of your day with me today… enjoy the rest of your Friday.

It’s “Meerly” Irresistible ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sale-A-Bration is a great time to gather for a fun night of stamping. I’ll prepare a couple of projects using Annual catalog, Mini catalog and / or Sale-A-Bration products and help your friends “escape” from their reality for a few hours.

The Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set is a fun one to bring out the smiles and you can show its versatility with our projects here. To create a darling valentine, Stampin’ Up! paired the set with From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Heart Punch Pack, and the Stitched Be Mine Dies.

The beautiful For You card shows the opportunity to pair sentiments with embellishments, in this case, the Peaceful Poppies Elements. And on the cute birthday box, Stampin’ Up! combined the stamp set with the Bonanza Dies.

Gathering your friends together for a fun afternoon or evening is the best “escape” that I can imagine.  I’ll bring along some fun Make & Takes along with plenty of other samples to share from the NEW Spring Mini and the Sale-a-bration catalogs.

If you are interested just email me at lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com or leave me a comment below and I will contact you to set up your fun stamping party.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, and I hope your day is a good one.
