Whale Done Bundle and Important Information

Hello, Friends! I have a card to share with you today but first I want to pass on some important information. Not only will you be able to begin ordering from the new 2020 Mini Catalog tomorrow BUT  Stampin’ Up! will also be unveiling a brand new online store with many new features and improvements! Everything should run smoothly but there are several things I want to point out:

When placing your first order on the new site, your password will be recognized but only if you manually enter it.  If your browser automatically enters it for you, it will think you’re on a brand new site and won’t know your information. So please manually enter your password the first time on the new site and if you use “bookmarks”, create a new one for the new site. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can click the “Forgot Password” link and reset your password. 

When shopping with me, please make sure my name is at the top of the page.

Some of the links I have on my blog may not work and might be “broken”.  Once the new store is live, I’ll be checking to make sure any links you click are in fact going to the new site. 

At midnight tonight (Mountain Time) the Stampin’ Up! online store will go offline.  The new site will launch at 7:00 am (Mountain Time) and you’ll be able to start ordering from the new catalog! 

 

Whale Done Bundle

 

Reminder:  Today’s the last day to earn Bonus Days Coupon Codes! With every $50 purchase, you’ll earn a $5.00 Bonus Coupon that you can apply to an order starting tomorrow (August 4-31). 

It’s time for a card! I used the Whale Done Bundle to create today’s card which includes the Whale Done stamp set and the Whale Builder Punch (you can find all the products I used in the Supply List below). I started with a base of Pretty Peacock cardstock and then ran a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock through my die-cutting machine using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the center of my card base. 

 

Seabed Embossing Folder

 

Next, I cut two pieces of Whale of a Time 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper into 1″ strips (you can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List) and placed them above and below the embossed Seabed piece. 

 

Whale of a Time Patterned Paper

 

The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set, Whale Done, in Balmy Blue ink.  I cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies and cut another larger circle using Pretty Peacock cardstock. The whale was cut out of the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper using the Whale Builder Punch (so easy, right?).  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the whale and the Pretty Peacock scalloped circle.

Stampin’ Up! Sunflowers Dies

Today’s card features the Sunflowers Dies and the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder

 

Sunflowers Dies

 

I used Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base of my card. For the next layer, I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. To that piece I added a piece of Playing With Patterns 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and then wrapped a piece of Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon (one of the ribbons in the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) around the middle and secured it in the back with adhesive.  After adhering that piece to the card base, I went to work on the sunflower. 

 

Sunflowers Dies

 

Sunflowers Dies

 

As you can see in the photo of the dies, above, there are two pieces that can be used to create the sunflower, a backing and then the actual sunflower.  I cut the backing out of Purple Posy cardstock and then embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.  Then I cut the sunflower out of Whisper White cardstock. I added some Multipurpose Glue to the middle of the sunflower and placed it on top of the backing. I did lift some of the areas of the sunflower to try and add more adhesive but as you can see, those areas are very narrow. Next time, I’ll try running the sunflower through my die-cutting  using one of our adhesive sheets so that the entire sunflower is secured. But, I may end up liking it better not completely adhered to the backing.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sunflower before attaching it to the front of the card. 

 

Sunflowers Dies

I used the stamp set, Butterfly Gala, for the sentiment and embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder.  It was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the card. 

Bundle Alert: The Sunflowers Dies can also be purchased as part of a bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Layering Circles Dies

The sentiment on today’s card is a sneak peek of the stamp set, Life is Beautiful.  It will be available on August 4th (next week!!!) when the new Mini Catalog goes live! If you’ve placed an order with me in the past six months, you should have received your complimentary copy of the Mini Catalog! There’s nothing like the excitement of a new catalog! 

 

Misty Moonlight

 

The base of the card is Misty Moonlight, one of the new In Colors.  Both designs of patterned paper are from Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper and I love how these two designs look together! 

 

Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper

 

The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White paper using Misty Moonlight ink. It was cut out using the Layering Circles Dies along with the Just Jade and Misty Moonlight scalloped circles. If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find the measurements below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines

You’ve seen it in the new Annual Catalog and on September 1st, the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine will be available to order (unfortunately the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and its replacement plates have experienced delays due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic).  Demonstrators will be able to preorder the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (the larger machine) in August so I’ll be purchasing one and cashing in my Bonus Days coupons! I’ll be ready to share my thoughts with you and I have to say, I can’t wait to give it a try.

 If you’d like to order one early too, simply purchase the Starter Kit!  You’ll receive $125 worth of Stampin’ Up! product (that you choose) for $99 plus it ships free. The Starter Kit is absolutely risk free, honest! Click here to purchase your Starter Kit and join my team!

July Mini Card Sampler

Quick note:  Sometimes I receive an order and the customer chooses No Contact.  This means that when I receive notification that an order was placed, Stampin’ Up! does not share the customer’s name with me.  I understand and respect this decision but yesterday I received a No Contact order but the customer used my host code for a free card kit. This leads me to believe “No Contact” was selected in error.  If you placed an order yesterday AND No Contact was selected in error, please email me (and mention several of the products you ordered) so I can gift you with an extra card kit.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Labels Dies

Today’s card features Stampin’ Up! 2020–2022 In Color 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper and the Painted Labels Dies

Forever Fern Stamp Set

I started with a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  Then I ran a piece of Magenta Madness cardstock (all the measurements can be found below the Supply List) through my die-cutting machine using one of the Meadow Moments embossing folders (these embossing folders are smaller in size than our regular folders).

 

Meadow Moments Embossing Folders

 

I placed the embossed Magenta Madness cardstock onto my card base first and then added the two pieces of 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper.

 

2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper

 

Magenta Madness Stampin Up

 

I stamped the sentiment using Magenta Madness ink and the stamp set, Forever Fern, onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock I cut out using the Painted Labels Dies.

Below is another version of today’s card.  I wasn’t going to share it but the little thing that bothered me about it may not even be noticed by someone else! I didn’t like that there was a bigger gap between the two pieces of Designer Series Paper and I wanted the sentiment to be touching all three pieces of paper.  For the sentiment I used the stamp set Tasteful Touches and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies (these two products are offered in the Tasteful Touches Bundle which saves you 10%).  I also added our 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots
