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!

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!
