Before I share my card with you today, I want to reach out to a customer who placed an order with me on June 20th. The customer used my host code to get a Mystery Box but they checked the box that says “No Contact”. I called Stampin’ Up! and they can’t share the name with me because the no contact box was checked. If this was you, can you please contact me (click the sidebar to email me) with the total of your order and I’ll get your Mystery Box sent out to you. 

On to my card for today! I made my card using Mediterranean Blooms Designer Series Paper, Friends for Life Dies, Dashing Designs Embossing Folder and Transparent Adhesive-Backed Dots




I started with Daffodil Delight cardstock for the base of my card. Then, I embossed two pieces of Basic White cardstock with the Dashing Designs 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered them to the card front. 



I adhered a piece of Mediterranean Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) to a piece of Garden Green cardstock and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front. 




I used the Friends for Life Dies to cut out the background for friend in Garden Green cardstock. I cut the word friend out of Basic White cardstock but I added an Adhesive Sheet to the back (it makes it so much easier to adhere it to the background “friend”). With these dies you have to be careful that you don’t lose the very small piece that dots the “i”. I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Garden Green cardstock (I had to cut several in half ) and adhered friend to the DSP. 




To complete my card, I added three Transparent Adhesive-Backed Dots to the front.

Two New Kits by Stampin’ Up!

Mystery Boxes 


What’s a Mystery Box? 

A Mystery Box is filled with retired products that I’d like to give to a new home. I’ve been a demonstrator for almost 15 years so you can just imagine how much I have! I have Medium Rate Flat Rate USPS shipping boxes stuffed with retired Stampin’ Up! product.The boxes contain stamps, dies, ribbon, embellishments and more! The boxes are already sealed and every box will be different and a mystery as to what’s inside! The value of each box is well over $200. 

All of the products in the Mystery Boxes have retired but some have never been used, some are used and all are “as is”. Some of the stamp sets are wood mount. 

You can place an order HERE.



There are two ways to get a Mystery Box

  • Place a $125 or more order (before shipping/tax) at my Stampin’ Up! online store using the host code KQB3BP3Q and I will send a Mystery Box to you as a free gift and I’ll even pay the postage! Using the host code will alert me that you want a Mystery Box. If your order is $150 or more, please DO NOT use the host code so you can receive Stampin’ Rewards (free product) directly from Stampin’ Up!. After you’ve placed your order (only if your order is $150 or more), please email me that you’d like a Mystery Box (click “Email Me” on the sidebar).
  • If you don’t want to place an order, you can purchase a Mystery Box for $80 plus $15.00 postage. Email me that you want a box and I’ll send you a PayPal invoice (click “Email Me” on the sidebar).
