My Encircled in Warmth Card Sampler is now available!

My Card Samplers give you the chance to “sample” different products and you’re able to see our Designer Series Paper, cardstock, embossed paper, die cut pieces and embellishments “in person” as you assemble the cards.

World Card Making Day Winner and Updates

Thank you to everyone who who left a comment over the weekend about their favorite Stampin’ Up! color group! Many of you said it was really hard to pick just one group and I agree. Personally, I tend to gravitate towards the Brights but there are several colors in each group I love.

I used a random generator to pick the winner (I wish I could send the stamp set to each one of you).  The winner of the In Your Words stamp set is:

 

Nancy Boyd

 

Congratulations Nancy!!! I already have your address and will get your stamp set mailed today! Again, thank you again to everyone who participated!

 

Clearance Rack Refresh     

Update:  Stampin’ Up! just announced that they made a mistake in telling demonstrators that the Clearance Rack had been updated.  It will be updated TOMORROW, Wednesday, October 6, 2021 (that explains why I saw so few items).

Stampin’ Up! announced early this morning that there’s been a Clearance Rack Refresh. I’ll admit I don’t go over to the Clearance Rack very often so I’m not sure if the new items have been added or if more are being added throughout the day.  If you’d like to check it out, click here

 

Classic Stamp Pad Bundles

As with many companies around the globe, Stampin’ Up! is experiencing  supply chain shortages, global shipping delays, labor shortages, and transportation and delivery difficulties.  They are doing their best to get products in our hands.  Please read the information below from Stampin’ Up! about our classic stamp pad bundles.

“Due to ongoing supply chain challenges, we are unable to keep Classic Stampin’ Pad Bundles in stock. As such, we’ve made the decision to move these items to “Not Orderable” status for the foreseeable future. We will fill any backorders that currently exist but will not take additional backorders now that the items are turned off. Single Classic Stampin’ Pads are still orderable; while we can’t guarantee that these won’t go on backorder, we expect that they will continue to be available.”

Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper

Thanks so much for all the comments left over the weekend! It was so much fun reading every single one of them. Tomorrow I’ll announce the winner of the stamp set! 

I really enjoy finding a card design I like and then trying it out with different Designer Series Papers. Today’s card is one of those designs and was created using Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper.  You can see another version of the card HERE using Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper. 

Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper has been on backorder but is estimated to be back in stock sometime this week. 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock.  I adhered six pieces of Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List) to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

Using the Tasteful Labels Dies, I cut the sentiment shape out of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using the stamp set, Inspired Thoughts, and Blackberry Bliss ink.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. How’s that for a quick and easy card?

 

 

 

 

 

Supply List

Below you’ll find all the Stampin’ Up! supplies I used for today’s card. If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your demonstrator! You can place an order by clicking any of the images below to go to my Stampin’ Up! online store. 

 

Measurements

  • Thick Basic White cardstock:  11″ x 4-1/4″  score at 5-1/2″
  • Blackberry Bliss cardstock: 5″ x 3-3/8″
  • Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper: (6) 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″
  • Basic White cardstock:  scrap for sentiment

Thank You and Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper

Happy Friday! Today I have a card to share with you but I was unable to find the time to create a tutorial.  It’s been one of those weeks but I’ll be back next week with another one. Before sharing my card, I want to share some happy news.

The last day of the Stampin’ Up! year was yesterday and each year Stampin’ Up! offers an incentive trip for demonstrators to work towards. This was a goal I never thought I could attain but in June I earned my first incentive trip!!! Thank you so very much to each and every one of you who chose me as your demonstrator when you placed your Stampin’ Up! orders this past year.  I could not have done it without you and I can’t thank you enough for helping me to achieve this goal! The trip is to the Western Caribbean on the largest cruise ship in the world in May 2022.  Now that the new Stampin’ Up! year has begun, I’ll be working towards a Baltic Sea Cruise that will take place in 2023.  Again, thank you so much to everyone who helped me to earn the incentive trip!!!!

 

 

It’s now time for today’s card! 

 

 

To create today’s card I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock.  Then I added two pieces of Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper.  I then added another piece of Sweet Symmetry and layered it on a piece of Basic White cardstock.  I added Stampin’ Dimensiionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

Using the Scalloped Contours Dies, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the stamp set, In Symmetry. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it the front.  This is a very quick and easy card to make!

 

 

 

Here’s another version using two more designs from Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper and Just Jade ink.  You can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.

 

 

Bundle Alert (bundles always save you 10%):  The In Symmetry Bundle  (#155599) includes the In Symmetry stamp set and the Symmetrical Stems Border Punch

Below you’ll find all the Stampin’ Up! supplies I used for today’s card. If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your demonstrator! You can place an order by clicking any of the images below to go to my Stampin’ Up! online store.

I purchased the Starter Kit twelve years ago just for the discount. I had absolutely no intention of doing anything else except buy discounted products for myself. I still love Stampin’ Up! products and have used my discount to the fullest! I think the biggest impact for me has been that I now feel like I’m a creative person.  I never felt like that before.  Stampin’ Up! products make it so easy to create pretty cards and projects. I’ve never regretted my decision to purchase the Starter Kit and join Stampin’ Up! 

 

 

Stampin’ Up! Gingerbread & Peppermint

I created today’s card as part of a challenge and I used the stamp set, Words of Cheer, Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders (these embossing folders are currently unavailable but are expected to be back in stock later this week). 

 

Gingerbread & Peppermint

 

Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper

 

I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Real Red cardstock and a layer of Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper. The coordinating colors for this Designer Series Paper are: Real Red, Old Olive, Early Espresso and Cinnamon Cider.

 

 

 

I cut a piece of Old Olive cardstock, notched one end and then before adhering it the card base, I placed it in one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Then I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut a Basic White circle and a scalloped Real Red circle.  I embossed the Basic White circle using the same Wintry 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered it on top of the scalloped circle. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and added it to the front of the card. 

 

 

Using the Snow Time Dies, I cut the sentiment piece out of Basic White cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it on top of the circles. 

Bundle Alert:  The Words of Cheer Bundle (156389) includes the Words of Cheer Stamp Set and the Christmas Cheer Dies. Bundles always save you 10%.

Below you’ll find all the Stampin’ Up! supplies I used for today’s card. If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your demonstrator! You can place an order by clicking any of the images below to go to my Stampin’ Up! online store.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts

Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card this week and I used the stamp set, Positive Thoughts along with the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies to create today’s card. 

 

Positive Thoughts stamp set

 

I started with a base of Mint Macaron cardstock and then added a layer of Rich Razzleberry cardstock that I embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I used the Nature’s Thoughts Dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut the Basic White rectangle 

 

 

 

I stamped a leafy frond directly onto the Basic White rectangle in Mint Macaron ink using the stamp set Positive Thoughts. Then I stamped two more onto Basic White cardstock, also using Mint  Macaron ink and cut them out using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I also stamped the flower in Rich Razzleberry ink and cut it out using these same dies.

 

 

Stampin Up Positive Thoughts

 

I adhered the fronds and the flower to the Basic White rectangle using Multipurpose Glue.  I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink using the stamp set Inspired Thoughts and then cut it out using the Double Oval punch. Using this same punch, I also cut a Mint Macaron scalloped oval.  I layered the two piece together and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

To complete the card, I adhered a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside and then added five Genial Gems to the front.

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Dies

Today’s card features Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Dies, Encircled in Warmth stamp set, Wintry 3D Embossing Folders and Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. If the Poinsettia Dies look familiar, it’s because they debuted in the 2020 Mini Catalog and can now be found in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The beauty of many of the dies in this set is that they cut and emboss at the same time! To see what I mean, take a look at the embossing on the poinsettia!

Poinsettia Dies

 

Poinsettia Dies Stampin Up

 

 

I started with a piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock and then added a layer of Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper. Next, I adhered a piece of Soft Succulent cardstock that I ran through one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders.  These embossing folders are currently on backorder and as of today, they can still be added to your order and will ship when they are back in stock (estimated to be back in stock next week). The rest of your order will ship without the embossing folders. 

 

Poinsettia Dies

 

I used the Poinsettia Dies to cut two Silver Foil sprigs. Before running one of the sprigs though the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, I added the little piece for the center of the flower onto the paper. I also cut two poinsettia flowers out of Basic White cardstock.  I adhered a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional between the two flower pieces and then added a regular Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the larger flower.  I used our Mini Glue Dots to adhere the foil sprigs to the back of the poinsettia and then adhered the flower to the front of the card. 

When using the poinsettia and leaves dies, you’ll use two dies.  One of the dies cuts the flower shape and the other embosses the paper. I used a Sharpie to mark the dies so I would know exactly how the inside piece fits (it’s a big time saver).

 

 

I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut a rectangle out of Basic White cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.  To complete the card, I adhered a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.
