I have two cards to share with you today but first, today’s the last day to place a $35 or $50 order using the host code MCHHAXEE to receive my Perfectly Penciled Card Sampler. I used our Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper to create the cards. What’s nice about this paper is that you can color in the images with Stampin’ Blends or colored pencils or use it with just the black and white images (the cards I’m sharing today – see below –  have the images colored in). You can’t go wrong either way!



You now have a choice:

  • Place a minimum $35 order and you’ll receive one each of three different cards for a total of three cards. 
  • Place a minimum $50 order and you’ll receive two each of three different cards for a total of six cards.


Here’s how you can earn it FREE!

  • Place a minimum $35 or $50 order (before tax/shipping) at my Stampin’ Up! online store.
  • Use my special Perfectly Penciled Card Sampler Host Code when placing your order (see below)  BUT if your order reaches $150 or more, please DO NOT use the host code so you can receive Stampin’ Rewards (free product directly from Stampin’ Up!).  Once you place your order, simply drop me an email (only necessary if your order is over $150) letting me know that you’d like the Perfectly Penciled Card Sampler.
  • Place your order before the end of today, March 7, 2023.

  • A PDF Tutorial with instructions, pictures, cutting measurements and a complete supply list of all the products used.

Once you’ve made all the cards in the Sampler, you’ll be able to easily replicate each card by following the easy to follow directions in the PDF (pictures are included as well).

Today’s cards were created using Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper, the Irresistible Blooms stamp set, one of the new Basics 3D Embossing Folders and was colored with Stampin’ Blends




I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock for the base of my card. Then, I cut two pieces of Basic White cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List) and adhered one to the inside of the card. I placed the other piece inside one of the new Basics 3D Embossing Folders and ran it through my Cut & Emboss Machine and then adhered it to the front of the card. 




I cut a small strip of Basic Black cardstock and ran it through the Cut & Emboss Machine using the same embossing folder that I used for the Basic White cardstock. I then adhered it to the front of the card.

I cut two pieces of Basic Black cardstock and two pieces of Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper. I adhered the longer piece of Designer Series Paper to the Basic Black cardstock and then adhered it to the card base, at a slant. Before adhering the other piece to the Basic Black cardstock, I colored it using my Sweet Sorbet and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. 

Quick Tip: When cutting the 3″ x 2-3/4″ piece of Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper, you’ll want the 2-3/4″ (shorter side) at the top and bottom. I’m telling you because when I first made the card, I did it the opposite way and had to start over.  

Another Quick Tip: When using Stampin’ Blends, always color with a piece of scratch paper underneath. The ink will bleed through and this will protect the surface of your table or desk. I like to use our Grid Paper and fold it in half for extra protection. 




After coloring the flowers, I adhered the Designer Series Paper to the Basic Black cardstock and then adhered it to the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento ink and the stamp set, Irresistible Blooms. I then cut it out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I love the stitching on these dies! I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.  I made several of these cards and where I placed the sentiment was dependent on whether I didn’t like my coloring in one spot!! To complete my card, I added three Iridescent Pearls to the black strip. 




Here’s another version of the card using another design in the package of Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper. I used all the same products as the first card.

It’s almost time for the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog! This year I’m implementing something new. I’m requesting that my customers fill out a form to have a new catalog sent to their home. I’m always happy to send complimentary copies of our catalogs to my customers but due to the rising cost of postage, I’m asking that you request one (it will still be complimentary). Normally I’d send a new catalog to anyone who has ordered from me in the past six months but I know that many of my customers shop with several different demonstrators and again due to the rising costs of mailing, I’d rather have you request a catalog so that you don’t have several catalogs from several different demonstrators.  Thanks so much for your understanding!! 

If you are a customer of mine and would like to have the Annual Catalog mailed to you and you’ve ordered from me in the last six months, please click HERE



Last week many new products went live. These products will not be in a catalog but can be ordered online. When they aren’t in a catalog, it’s hard to know what’s available so I created a two page flyer with all the NEW products that were released last week. You’ll find all the item numbers, an image of the products and prices. You can access the flyer here or click the image below. For more information about each product, click on the images on the flyer.
