Stampin’ Up! Pretty Perennials and Sand & Sea

Today’s card is from one of my past Card Samplers and it features the Pretty Perennials stamp set and Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper

 

Pretty Perennials

 

Did you know the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog will be retiring soon? The retirement list for this catalog will be coming out in early June and all the retiring products will be available until June 30th or while supplies last. The Pretty Perennials stamp set and coordinating Perennial Petals Dies will both be retiring as well as the Pretty Perennials Bundle which includes both of these products (bundles always save you 10%). 

 

 

Pretty Perennials Bundle

 

Another product that will be retiring in June is Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.  I have loved creating cards with this paper!

 

Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper

 

To create today’s card I started with a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock cut at 11″ x 4-1/4″ and scored at 5-1/2″.  Then I trimmed one end at 2-3/4″ (you can find all the rest of the measurements below the Supply List). The piece that’s been cut off is used for the sentiment piece.  

I added a piece of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper to the front panel and also cut a small butterfly out of this same paper using the Brilliant Wings Dies. To attach the butterfly to the card, I used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional but you could also use a Mini Glue Dot.

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Ink and my Stamparatus. I wanted the word “happy” to be nice and bold and you can always achieve that look when using the Stamparatus because you can stamp over and over again in the exact same place.  “Sending Lots of” was stamped in Melon Mambo ink using a clear block, not the Stamparatus. This piece was adhered to the Melon Mambo cardstock that was trimmed off. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to one side of the sentiment piece and attached it to the front panel. To complete the card, I added three Basic Rhinestone Jewels for some sparkle!

Enjoy your weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

Today’s card is one that was included in my Pansy Petals Card Sampler last month. It features Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper, Hippo & Friends Dies and the stamp set, Free as a Bird.

 

 

I started with a base of Evening Evergreen cardstock and then added a layer of Soft Sea Foam cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Our 3D embossing folders are very thick and if you’ve never used one before, you’ll need to use our Specialty Plate when running it through your machine (this plate is not included with the machine).  The “sandwich” you’ll use when running it through your machine is little bit different than the sandwich used with our standard embossing folders. You’ll start with the Base Plate, then the embossing folder with paper inside and the Specialty Plate on top (the sandwich for a standard folder is Base Plate, cutting plate, embossing folder, cutting plate). There’s nothing like a beautifully embossed piece of paper! 

 

Specialty Plate Cut & Emboss Machine

 

Next, I adhered a panel of  Evening Evergreen cardstock with a piece of Pansy Petal Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Free as a Bird. Using the Evening Evergreen stamp pad is also a good option to stamp the sentiment.  When I made the card, customers were not yet able to purchase the new stamp pad so I opted for Mossy Meadow.  I cut both the sentiment and the Soft Sea Foam layer beneath it using the Hippo & Friends Dies. I love the stitching around the edges! 

 

 

Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Opal Rounds to the front of the card and added a panel of Basic White cardstock to the inside.

A Little Hello in Expressions In Ink

Today’s card features Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper, the Pansy Patch stamp set and the Flowering Vine Dies. On Monday I shared another design from this package of paper and if you missed that card, you can see it here

 

Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper

 

 

Sometimes all you need to make a quick and easy card is a beautiful piece of paper and this paper definitely qualifies as beautiful!

To create today’s card, I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Shaded Spruce cardstock and Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper. The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set Pansy Patch.

 

 

I cut the sentiment out using the Flowering Vine Dies and the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. These dies can be purchased as part of the Vine Design Bundle which includes the Vine Design stamp set and Flowering Vine Dies.  You can find the Flowering Vine Dies, Vine Design stamp set and the Vine Design Bundle in the Mini Catalog.  Sadly these dies and stamp set (as well as the bundle) will be retiring at the end of June. 

 

Flowering Vine Dies

 

Vine Design Bundle

 

I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment before attaching it to the front of the card. To complete my card, I added two Holiday Rhinestones in Shaded Spruce. I made several of these cards yesterday and included them in several of my thank you packages.

Stampin’ Up! Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper

Today’s card features the beautiful Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper. This paper is truly gorgeous!!!

 

Expressions in Ink

 

I started with a base of Just Jade cardstock. Then I layered a piece of Pale Papaya cardstock with a piece of Expressions of Ink Designer Series Paper.  Before adhering these two pieces to the card base, I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon around the layers and tied a bow. 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment in Just Jade ink using the stamp set, Flowers of Friendship. I cut it out using the Stitched Retangles Dies and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.

My goal when creating this card was to showcase this beautiful paper.  This paper is much too pretty to cover up!

Pierced Blooms Friday Tutorial

Today’s Friday Tutorial features the new Scalloped Contours Dies, the new Bark 3D Embossing Folder and the Pierced Blooms Dies. You can access your free tutorial below the Supply List.

 

 

 

The Scalloped Contours Dies can also be purchased as a Bundle (bundles always save you 10%). The Color & Contour Bundle includes the Color & Contour stamp set and the Scalloped Contours Dies. 

 

 

 

 

To create the flowers, the center of the flowers and the leaves, I used the Pierced Blooms Dies (every die in this set has beautiful stitching). The In Bloom Bundle can be found in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog but you won’t find the bundle in the new Annual Catalog.  Both the In Bloom stamp set and the Pierced Blooms Dies are in the new catalog but the bundle is not.  So, if you’ve been thinking about this bundle, the time to get it is before the Mini Catalog retirement list comes out in early June.

Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Wings Dies

Today’s card features Stampin’ Up! Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper and the Brilliant Wings Dies

 

 

This is one of the cards I included in my Ice Cream Corner Card Sampler last month and it’s one of my favorites.  I started with a base of Poppy Parade cardstock and then added a layer of Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.  

 

Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper

 

Using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, I cut a rectangle out of Basic White cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in Poppy Parade Ink using the stamp set, Sweet Ice Cream. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front.

 

 

Using the Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut a butterfly out of the same design of Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper that I used for the first layer of the card.  I adhered the butterfly to the stitched rectangle by adding Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals down the center of the butterfly that I cut in half. I use our Paper Snips to cut my Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The scissors can get sticky so I have two pairs.  I use one specifically for cutting anything that might be sticky and I keep a piece of ribbon on them so I know which pair I shouldn’t use when cutting paper or ribbon. 

To complete the card, I added three Holiday Rhinestones in Pumpkin Pie.  Our Holiday Rhinestones are currently on the Low Inventory List which means they could go into backorder status very soon. Don’t let the name fool you, these pretty rhinestones are for every day, not just holidays.

Today’s card features two new products – Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and our Genial Gems

 

Stampin Up! Hand-Penned

 

I started with a base of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and then added another layer that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Painted Texture embossing folder. I cut a piece of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and layered it with a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock. 

 

Hand Penned Designer Series Paper

 

The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White cardstock using Misty Moonlight ink and was then cut out using the Layering Circles Dies. I used those same dies to cut a scalloped circle out of Soft Sea Foam and a larger one out of Misty Moonlight.  I layered these pieces with the sentiment and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it the front of the card. To complete the card, I added three Genial Gems for some sparkle! You can find all the measurements below the Supply List.

  • You’ll receive an email when I mail your Card Sampler. The PDF Tutorial will be included in that email.
  • When using the Hand-Penned Card Sampler Host Code to place your order, you will not qualify for my regular Customer Rewards Card Kits.

The special Hand-Penned Card Sampler HOST CODE will close at the end of the day on Saturday, May 8, 2021 and after that date, the Card Sampler will no longer be available.

Stampin’ Up! Host & Join Promotions Begin May 4th

I don’t normally post on the weekend but I wanted to let you know about two promotions beginning next week!

As you know, the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog will go live this Tuesday, May 4, 2021.  In addition to over 256 brand new products being released, Stampin’ Up! will also have two promotions, both beginning on the day of the catalog launch! 

 

 

 

From May 4 – June 14, 2021, qualifying orders of $250 will receive an extra $25 in Stampin’ Rewards which means more free product!! Stampin’ Rewards can be spent on any current products as well as host only items that can be found on pages  170-171 in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and on page 88 in the January – June Mini Catalog. 

If your personal order won’t reach $250, you can see if your friends and family would like to place orders.  I can set up a host code for you and then your friends/family would go to my online store to place their orders and enter the host code I created for you. Once the combined orders reach $150, you’ll start earning Stampin’ Rewards and if they reach $250, you’ll qualify for the extra $25 in free product!  

You can download the flyer for this promotion, here! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. 

 

 

If you’ve ever thought about purchasing the Starter Kit, this is the month to do it. Beginning on Tuesday, May 4th, you’ll receive $30 EXTRA in free product when you purchase the Starter Kit.  The Starter Kit is $99 and normally you get to choose $125 worth of Stampin’ Up! product but from May 4-31, you can choose $155 in product, $30 more! 

If you’re thinking the Starter Kit is just for people who want to have parties and sell Stampin’ Up! product, that really isn’t true because it’s for everyone! I purchased the Starter Kit twelve years ago, because I loved Stampin’ Up! products and I wanted a discount on everything I purchased. That was my only intention. But, if you’re business minded, you’ll love being able to share what you love!

Here are more details:

  • The Starter Kit ships FREE! 
  • Receive business resources like catalogs, brochures, order forms and postcards
  • Approximately a month before new products are released, you’ll be able to participate in a preorder and purchase brand new products ahead of the public
  • Attend Stampin’ Up! events like OnStage and Center Stage (all events are virtual right now)
  • Personal purchases of $150 are eligible to receive Stampin’ Rewards 
  • Succeed Weekly emails with support and training
  • Receive a complimentary copy of each current catalog from Stampin’ Up! 
  • If you join Stampin’ Up! with me, you’ll have free access to my Card Sampler & Card Kit Tutorials

 

Commonly Asked Questions:

If I purchase the Starter Kit, do I have to sell Stampin’ Up! products to my family and friends?  No, you are under NO obligation to sell.  You can be your only customer.  Of course once your friends see the cute cards you’re making, they’ll want to buy their stamping supplies from you. 

Will I receive a discount on any products I buy?  Yes!! This is the best part! You’ll receive at least a 20% discount on all your purchases.  

Do I have to buy/sell a certain amount of product?  The quarterly minimum is $300 in product (which is only $240 after your discount!) that can be from personal orders, online orders or ones from family and friends. The quarters are January – March, April – June, July – September, October – December.  Once you join, your quarterly minimum begins during your first FULL quarter.

What if I can’t make the quarterly minimum?  You’ll simply be dropped.  No one will hassle you. No one will bother you. It truly is risk free to purchase the Starter Kit!

 

Click here on May 4th to purchase the Starter Kit. 

 

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions about either of these promotions that begin on May 4, 2021. 

 

Tomorrow’s the Last Day! 

 

 

The 2020-2021 Annual Catalog retires tomorrow night! Click here to see the products that won’t be returning. 

Reminder:  All the bundles listed on the Last Chance List are retiring. Some of the products in the bundles are retiring but some are returning in the new catalog. Bundles always save you 10% so although some retiring bundles contain returning products, the bundle price will not be returning. For instance, the Hippo Happiness Bundle is retiring but both products will be in the new catalog.  Let me know if you have any questions.
