Stampin’ Up! Perennial Postage Bundle

I haven’t posted since last week because I’ve been ill and didn’t want to do much of anything. I’m finally feeling much better.

Today’s card was made using the Perennial Postage Bundle, Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper, Paper Butterfly Accents and Purple Fine Shimmer Gems (these gems are currently not available but are expected to be back in stock the week of March 11). 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card. Then I cut two pieces of Highland Heather cardstock and two different designs of Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper and adhered them together before adding them to the front of my card. 

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using Gorgeous Grape ink and the stamp set Perennial Postage. I cut the sentiment out using the Perennial Postage Dies, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

I used a Blending Brush to brush Highland Heather ink over the front of the Paper Accents Butterfly. I then added Multipurpose Glue to the back and adhered it to the sentiment. To complete my card, I added three Purple Fine Shimmer Gems to the sentiment.

Ten Days Left to Purchase the Starter Kit with Two Options! 

 

 

The best time to purchase the Starter Kit is during Sale-A-Bration!! The Starter Kit is $99 and you’ll receive $125 in Stampin’ Up! product (shipping is always free when you purchase the Starter Kit)! The Starter Kit is truly for anyone! It’s for the person who wants to receive a 20% (to start) discount when they buy their Stampin’ Up! products. It’s also for the business minded person. There’s no risk in purchasing the Starter Kit, only perks and you get to choose what you want to add to your Starter Kit.  But wait, there’s more!

When I purchased the Starter Kit in 2009, I bought it just so I could get the discount. In 2009 you didn’t have the freedom to choose the products you wanted, it came with set products.  I love that Stampin’ Up! gives you the chance to now customize your kit so that you pick the products you love and know you will use. For more information about the Starter Kit, you can take a look here for some frequently asked questions.  You are also welcome to email me with any questions (click EMAIL ME on the sidebar).

You have two options during Sale-a-Bration:  

Option 1: Choose the Stampin’ Glass Mat Studio (Retail Value $60). If you choose this option, Stampin’ Up! will send this to you, absolutely FREE!

Demonstrators were able to purchase the Glass Mat before Sale-a-Bration began and before I got it, I’d never used a glass mat.  Well, it’s awesome! It’s a product that I never knew I wanted! 

The heavy-duty glass mat comes printed with a ruler and grid lines for easy measuring, while the large surface space gives ample room for spreading out while paper crafting. The safety-tempered glass has a heat and scratch resistant surface that wipes clean with the included cloth and water—no chemicals needed. The reusable cloth also cleans ink off your stamps! The nonslip, heat resistant, waterproof silicone mat features four palette squares for mixing custom ink colors or for holding small ink spots in place while crafting. Each component can be used separately or you can use all three items together for a multipurpose paper crafting studio that’s both functional and elegant.

Option 2: Your choice of an additional $30 in FREE products to add to your Starter Kit!

Stampin’ Up! Paper Butterfly Accents

Happy Valentine’s Day! 

Today’s card was created using Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper, the So Sincere stamp set, Paper Butterfly Accents, Deckled Rectangles Dies and one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders

 

Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper

 

 

I started with Gorgeous Grape cardstock for the base of my card.  Then, I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders and my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and then I adhered it to the front of the card.

 

 

 

Next I cut a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock and Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper with the Deckled Rectangles Dies. I adhered the Fresh Freesia rectangle at an angle and then adhered the DSP rectangle.

I stamped my sentiment on Basic White cardstock using Gorgeous Grape ink and the stamp set, So Sincere. I cut it out using the Deckled Rectangles Dies. I didn’t use Stampin’ Dimensionals for this card (shock!!!) and adhered it to the Designer Series Paper. You can’t add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the butterfly, which is why I didn’t pop up the sentiment with Dimensionals. 

 

 

 

 

I used a Blending Brush to add color to my  butterfly (there are 40 butterflies in one package of Paper Butterfly Accents) with Fresh Freesia ink. Then, I added Multipurpose Glue to the back and placed it on my card. To finish my card, I added three Purple Fine Glimmer Gems and added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.

Stampin’ Up! Seashells 3D Embossing Folder

Today’s card was made using one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration gifts you can earn with a $50 purchase – the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder. This folder is available as a Sale-a-Bration gift until August 31, 2022 or while supplies last. This product is in the Annual Catalog so there are two different product numbers.  One allows you to earn it FREE and the other is to purchase it. 

  • Choose it as your free Sale-a-Bration gift with a $50 purchase using the product number 163100 
  • Purchase it using the product number 154309

 

 

 

To create my card, I started with a piece of Pool Party cardstock for the base of my card and then adhered a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.  Next, I cut another piece of Basic White cardstock and set it aside (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). 

 

 

 

 

Next, I opened the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and on the side that is “indented” I brushed Pool Party ink over the entire area using a Blending Brush. Then I placed my Basic White cardstock inside the folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Believe me, this is addicting when you see what you can create! 

Before adhering this layer to the card base, I wrapped a piece of Pool Party Sheer Ribbon around the cardstock and tied a knot. 

 

 

 

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Shapes

 

I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using Pool Party ink and the stamp set, Framed Occasions. Then I cut it out using the Beautiful Shapes Dies which coordinate with this stamp set. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card.  To complete the card, I added three Iridescent Pearls
