Watercolor Words Just For You Easy Card

Watercolor Words Just For You Easy Card

I opened the Stampin’ Up! Catalog for inspiration and BOOM! This easy Watercolor Words Just For You Card was on the first page I opened!  It even says “Quick & Easy” on the sample! I did change it a bit from the card I saw on page 135 but that’s fine!  Lots of times I think I am going to copy and I end up doing something either slightly or a lot different! I think we should all remember more often the wealth of inspiration and ideas in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog!  What a resource!

I have always loved the Watercolor Words Stamp Set that came out last year I believe. It’s just so versatile and easy to use. This card is photographed on a piece of Melon Mambo card stock but the card itself is just a Whisper White Thick Cardstock card base. The regular Whisper White is okay for a card base but the Thick Cardstock is better. You should have a package in your stash! Then I just stamped the flower and leaves and greeting, added a strip of washi tape down the side and tied on some White Baker’s Twine. So fun and easy! And for a little pizzazz I added three Rhinestone Jewels.

Since the sample in the catalog had the greeting stamped OVER the flower, I inked up the flower and leaves and stamped them “off” on a piece of scrap paper, THEN stamped onto the card. This gives a lighter image without using lighter colors of ink.  I used Melon Mambo ink for the flower and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.  I liked the flower and leaves as they were and decided to stamp the greeting below the flower since I had plenty of room. I wanted to use my Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tapethat determined the color ink I would use on the flower.?!

If you have this stamp set (or really any flower stamp set and greeting) I suggest you make a few simple cards like this right away and have them on hand! Once you start you will probably change up your design a little bit or perhaps add a little more embellishment to your card or who knows?! At any moment in time you might feel a different creative mood!

Remember, Stampin’ Up! Bonus Days are coming to a quick end! Today, tomorrow and Sunday!

With every $50 you spend in July, you will receive by email a $5 coupon to use in August on your next order!

(You must have an email address and you must not lose your coupon code because Stampin’ Up! will not be able to resend to you.)

I don’t know about where you live, but here in Houston it is too hot to do anything outside, or do much of anything at all, so you might as well turn on the a/c and sit and stamp this weekend!!

Online Ordering will be down from midnight until 3:00 AM (MT) on June 1st while Stampin’ Up! transitions the system to the 2016-17 annual catalog. During this time, no orders can be placed in Online Ordering.  You can order products from the new catalog starting at 3:00 AM (MT) on June 1st. (In case you can’t sleep and want to be putting in your order in the middle of the night or very early morning!!!)  You can imagine, with all the excitement over a new catalog there can be glitches in the computer system, slow load times due to heavy traffic, and any other kinds of hiccups. Just come back and try again. Do not try to put in your new order the night before – actually you wouldn’t even be able to enter the new product numbers – but any time there is a special, if you enter items before the special, when the offer or catalog goes live, you just have to do it over again for the computer to register the new items.

Let me know in the meantime if you have any questions or need any assistance.

JUNE SPECIAL:  For the month of June, hosts can get $35 in Extra Stampin’ Rewards when you host a stamping event with $350 or more in sales. This can be your own gigantic order or get some stamping friends together! Let me know if you have a group of friends you want to tie together in a workshop order and I can give you a Hostess Code so that each can order but you can get credit as the Hostess.  That’s more money you can use for products in the new annual catalog, and you know there are PLENTY of new products you’ll want to bring home. Remember, Stampin’ Rewards can be used on a Starter Kit, so this is a great time for potential recruits to start their business for less.

JUNE SPECIAL FOR NEW RECRUITS: Just announced today, new recruits to Stampin’ Up! in June, if you would like to start your own stamping business, will be able to choose TWO FREE STAMP SETS in your Starter Kit (excluding Bundles and Kits). Depending on what stamp sets you choose, this could have a value as high as $104! The Starter Kit is what you purchase to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!  You can sign up Online HERE (offer begins June 1) and have your Demonstrator number in minutes! From that moment on, you are entitled to the Demonstrator discount and perks and can start making plans for starting your business in whatever manner you choose. If you prefer, you can fill out the forms and mail them in. (That’s how we used to do it!) The Starter Kit is $99 but you choose $125 worth of product to go in it! In addition, you get $50 in business supplies to help you get started! This FREE STAMPS offer is good June 1 -30.

Blended Bloom Shimmery Thank You Card

Blended Bloom Shimmery Thank You Card

We are in the midst of the Stampin’ Up! transition to the new catalog with the Retiring Products List and two of the retiring products on the list are on this Blended Bloom Shimmery Thank You Card. The Retiring List is a list of products going away by May 31st (if not sooner) in order to make room for the exciting new products and stamp sets in the new Stampin’ Up! 2016-17 catalog coming out June 1, 2016.

This beautiful stamp, Blended Bloom Wood-Mount Stamp Set, is a single wood-mount stamp. If you are in to the adult coloring craze, this is a good stamp for coloring! You can stamp it as many times as you like without having to buy an expensive coloring book! This stamp is discounted by a few dollars on the Retiring List, so check it out!

I stamped this beautiful flower on Shimmery White Card Stock with Stazon Ink. Shimmery White paper holds up to watercoloring pretty well, better than Whisper White, although Watercolor Paper still is the best.  But I love the shimmer on the Shimmery White Paper. I think you can see it a little bit in the photo above. I used my Aqua Painter and ink refills to color in the flower, then cut it out with Paper Snips.

The card base is Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (as is the main color of ink on the flower) with a Shimmery White layer. I wrapped a piece of White 1 1/4″ Jute Ribbon around the left side of the card using Fast Fuse to adhere the end and also to adhere it along the front of the card, but not all the way over to the right. Then I tied on some Linen Thread around the Jute and trimmed the end with my Craft Scissors (they are sold out!). Then I adhered the Blended Bloom flower using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The greeting is from the Tin of Cards Photopolymer Stamp Set This stamp set is a great one to have, lots of great greetings plus a few little cutesy stamps that I have often used for just an extra little something on a project. I would also recommend you take a look at the Tin of Cards Project Kit because it is discounted right now and on the Retiring List! A great price and lots of crafting fun to make 16 cards!

Grab the Blended Bloom Stamp while you can and check out the other products used on the Blended Bloom Shimmery Thank You Card. Just change the greeting, of course, to make it a card for any occasion.

Time to Say Farewell to Stampin’ Up! Products

Retiring Stampin' Up! Products

Yesterday the Stampin’ Up! list of Retiring Products came out.  Wow!  I was quite surprised at a lot of them, but we’ll see!  Stampin’ Up! doesn’t usually leave us hanging so I think whatever we are missing will be replaced with something better and nicer for us! Really, I haven’t taken it all in yet.  I did mark my catalog last night, using a Sharpie to mark the retiring products. Now I’ll have to go back through and take stock in my mind what all the things were!

(for your sorting pleasure!)

I hope you received my special newsletter yesterday with the list. If you didn’t, check your Spam folder just in case it went in there. If you are reading this and aren’t on my Mailing List, go ahead and sign up in the box and you will be good to go for receiving all the latest news on this catalog transition from the retiring catalog to the brand new catalog coming June 1st! Make sure you “Confirm” your email subscription after you initially fill out the form.  You will get an email with a link you need to click to make it all official.  Some people never do this little step and miss out! It’s a pretty standard practice with emails to make sure we have your permission.

As you can imagine, every excited stamper was on the Stampin’ Up! website trying to shop and get information as soon as the list came out yesterday so there were a lot of website problems, crashes and slowdowns. If you had any problems, try again today or tomorrow. Frustrating for sure, but it shows how much everyone loves Stampin’ Up! products!

Things to Remember:   

  • Accessories will be available while supplies last.
  • Due to high demand for retiring stamps, we’ll keep producing retiring stamps until May 22 (Accessories are only while supplies last).
  • The lists of retiring products will be updated every business day by 4:00 PM (MT).

Enjoy shopping!  Let me know if you have any questions! This is a fun time!

Stampin’ Up! Weekly News and Deals

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals Banner

Last week Stampin’ Up! announced there were changes coming to the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals and now we know! This week and next week are the last two weeks for Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals as we have known them.  Instead, Stampin’ Up! will have “Special Offers” every few months with more products and price tiers than the Weekly Deals. Plus, there is still the Clearance Rack. But in the meantime, we DO still have Weekly Deals and a LOT of them this week!  These deals are good today through April 11. Click on the Weekly Deals below!

Do You Need Trimmer Blades???  I Do!!

Trimmer Blades

We received a shipment of Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (item 126995) and they will be available to order beginning today, April 5, at 12:00 (noon) (MT).

Keep in mind that when this supply of blades is depleted, they will return to “not orderable” status until we receive the next shipment. The supply we’re receiving would typically last one month; however, we expect that the blades will run out much faster since they haven’t been orderable for several weeks.

Retirement Coming Soon!

Not mine, (at least I hope not!), but the Stampin’ Up! Retirement List! Retiring products from the Annual Catalog and the Occasions Catalog will be posted sometime on April 18. In May, I’ll be able to start sending out new catalogs to my customers. If you do not have a Demonstrator you are working with and would like a catalog when they are available, please contact me. I would love to be your Demonstrator!

From past experience we know that certain items on the Retirement List can go fast, so I urge you to perhaps order anything you really want out of these current catalogs ahead of time or be ready to order that first day the list comes out. This is usually especially true of the retiring In Colors and ink refills. You just never know, so just something to keep in mind!

That’s it for today!  Check out those Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals and order those extra Trimmer Blades if you need them!

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Mar 2016

Here are the new Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for March 15 – 21, 2016.  Lots of interesting things this week!

The Cherry on Top Cotton Paper Assortment is very pretty and fun to use to make flowers, pom poms, treat bags, envelopes, lots of things! You get four each of these pretty colors: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush, and Watermelon Wonder, all in 12″ x 12″ sheets. Use the Fringe Scissors with it to make certain flowers to fringe on projects!

The Festive Flower Punch was first introduced in the past Holiday Catalog for making poinsettias. But now, in the Occasions Catalog, it coordinates with the Friends and Flowers Stamp Set. And in fact, you CAN still purchase the Reason for the Season Stamp Set to go with the punch as it was carried over to the Occasions Catalog. It’s actually cheaper if you want the Bundle with the stamp set and punch, to purchase the Reason for the Season Photopolymer Bundle, than to get them separately even with the punch on sale!

The Fringe Scissors are just a fun tool to own! I used mine the other day, not for grass, not for flowers, not for fringe – but for shredding!! I had just a few papers going in the trash that I thought might be better if I shredded part of the personal info on them. Being too lazy to go drag out the shredder, I just used my Fringe Scissors to cut up the papers! You wouldn’t want to tackle a whole stack of paper this way, but it worked for the little bit I had! Just cut both ways and you have teeny tiny pieces. Or make confetti this way!!

The Gold Foil Sheets I have used a lot in my projects!  Sometimes it is nice just to have that little bit of gold on a card or project! Get some extra at this price just to keep on hand for when the need arises! (The Silver Foil Sheets are also pictured but this deal is just on the Gold sheets.)

The Happy Patterns Decorative Masks are just one of those extras you might enjoy playing with. Use the masks (stencils) to decorate backgrounds for a little extra fun! Spritz or rub on color or use in various other ways. Not an essential, but if you are a little more artsy, you might having another tool in your Stampin’ Up! arsenal!

Only two more weeks left of Sale-A-Bration! Go over your Wish List and see what else you want while you can get something for FREE with a $50 purchase – with EACH $50 purchase!  No limit! At $150 you will receive Hostess Benefits as well, even without hosting a party! If you need just a little extra to reach the $50, consider something from the Clearance Rack or the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals.

Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals February 23 2016 & Paper Pumpkin

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Feb 23 2016

Here are the new Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for you!  These are good today through Monday, February 29. Wow!  February is almost gone, and it is a Leap Year so we get an extra day in February!

This week we have a flower punch, the Flower Medallion Punch, that coordinates with the flower in Crazy About You. You can also use it to punch cardstock or designer paper to make a multitude of flowers!  The Happy Heart Embossing Folder just got a workout for Valentine’s Day, but of course hearts aren’t just for Valentine’s Day!  You can use it for any sweet card, birthdays, anniversaries, all occasions really.  The Stars Framelits Dies are great to have on hand!  I’m a big believer in having “stars” to use on all kinds of cards such as congratulations, graduation, kids’ cards, 4th of July, birthdays – you name it!

We also have the 2015-17 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers on sale!  I use my markers a lot in various projects.  And if you don’t own all the ink colors, you can get by with the markers.  Just color directly on the stamp with the marker. And if you like buttons, we have the Classy Designer Buttons which are a vanilla color. Great neutral to use for many projects, but if you prefer, color them with Sharpies for a custom color.
