Annual Catalog Now Live & Lots of Ways to Save

The 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is officially live!!!

It’s full of some of returning favorites and lots of new stamps, ink, and paper.

If your wish list looks anything like mine, it’s long.

I want to save you the most money I can. Luckily, Stampin’ Up! has two opportunities for you to save money because let’s face it – saving money, means you can get more product!!!

May 4-June 14, when you spend $250 in an order, receive an extra $25 in hostess rewards!!!

Just think of all the free product you can get!!

So what does that look like?
Let’s say your order totals $300. You would earn $61 in free product!!!

Now that’s a lot of savings!!!

Now for THE best way to save money and really maximize your value – the Starter Kit.

May 4-31, for just $99, receive $155 in product in your Starter Kit, which ships for free, and then 20% all orders from then on out!!!!

That’s 20% on top of the 10% you get off bundles, 20% off already greatly discounted clearance items, 20% off the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and so much more!!

When you buy the Starter Kit, you get to be a part of the Stampin’ Up! family and specifically, my group of ladies from all across the United States.

Now….let’s put the two opportunities together.

  • Let’s say you buy the Starter Kit in May.
  • You pay $99 and get to choose $155 in product
  • Then come beginning of June, you place a $300 order as a demonstrator
  • You save 20% on this order and receive the Hostess Rewards
  • In total, you bought $455 in product
  • You SAVED around $175 – that’s about 38% in savings!!!

Now for a partay….

Join me May 14th over on Facebook for an hour of fun as we celebrate the new Annual Catalog!

It’ll be just an hour long, from 8:00 to 9:00 EDT, filled to the brink with fun, tips, and of course prizes!!
Don’t miss out!!!

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Thinking of You Card

May 4th – mark your calendars – the five new 2021-2023 In Colors will be available in the new Annual Catalog.

All this week we’re going to be taking a closer look at these colors.

If you’d like to see how they measure up to other Stampin’ Up! colors, head over here.

My card today starts off with Soft Succulent cardstock, one of the five new In Colors.

I then used the Snailed It Stamp Set and stamped the word bubble three times in Misty Moonlight, Pool Party, and Soft Succulent ink. I cut it out, as well as coordinating hearts, using the Snail Dies.

I adhered these down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Vine Design Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight ink, as well as a label border, and cut them out using the Flowering Vine Dies.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Stampin’ Up! March 2021 Paper Pumpkin

Paper Pumpkin is an all-inclusive monthly subscription that brings paper crafting right to your door in a fun and easy way!

The March 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit came in a beautiful unique box.

Inside were the directions to make 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs.

The Paper Pumpkin kits come with everything you need to make the project. Your first month kit will come with a block to mount your stamps which you can use for future kits.

Look at everything that came in the March 2021 kit:

The two card designs were really pretty and came together quickly. They each had some minimal stamping to do and then it was just about adhering everything down.

The one card was a birthday card.

The other was a “here’s to you” card.

The April 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit is all about sweet, cool cards. Don’t forget to subscribe by April 10th so you don’t miss out on the fun!

Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Thank You Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a theme challenge and it’s all about springtime.

Being that the theme is springtime – I went with a sweet nest of baby robins. I know exactly who I’m mailing the card today – someone that has bird nests in their back yard so I thought this was perfect!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock, which I covered with a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and using a Blender Brush added just a hint of Balmy Blue color to the top. I then matted this on Balmy Blue cardstock.

I stamped the images from the Birds & Branches Stamp Set in Crumb Cake (nest), Balmy Blue (eggs), Memento Black (bird) and cut them out along with the branch (Soft Suede cardstock) using the Birds & More Dies. For the belly of the bird, I colored it in using Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends (a huge shout out to everyone who helped me over on Facebook match a good color for the belly).

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink and cut it out using the coordinating Floral Gallery Dies and added a bow next to the nest.

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Card & Tips with Video

We made it!
It’s Friday!

Anyone else feel like this week was a doozy. Well, it’s here – Friday!!!
I hope you have a great weekend and get some stamping in!

Today’s card is one I shared live last week on YouTube. It’s super cute and in the video, I gave a very helpful tip on how to get perfect placement when using the cling stamps. It was inspired by Jennifer McCormac‘s card.

I’ve been going live each Tuesday at 1:00 EST. Be sure to head over to my channel and subscribe to it so you get an email notification when I go live so you don’t miss out anything!!!

My card starts off with Poppy Parade cardstock, which I embossed using the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and used Blending Brushes to add Pear Pizzazz and Balmy Blue ink to the edges. I used the Stamparatus and vellum to stamp the images in Memento Black Ink (**this ensures perfect placement – be sure to check out the video!).

I colored the images in using Poppy Parade, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then matted this on Basic Black cardstock.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and cut it out using the Snail Dies, adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Be sure to check out the video below to see how I made today’s card and shared a tip to help with perfect placement when using a cling stamp.
