Hello, Friends! I have a card to share with you today but first I want to pass on some important information. Not only will you be able to begin ordering from the new 2020 Mini Catalog tomorrow BUT  Stampin’ Up! will also be unveiling a brand new online store with many new features and improvements! Everything should run smoothly but there are several things I want to point out:

When placing your first order on the new site, your password will be recognized but only if you manually enter it.  If your browser automatically enters it for you, it will think you’re on a brand new site and won’t know your information. So please manually enter your password the first time on the new site and if you use “bookmarks”, create a new one for the new site. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can click the “Forgot Password” link and reset your password. 

When shopping with me, please make sure my name is at the top of the page.

Some of the links I have on my blog may not work and might be “broken”.  Once the new store is live, I’ll be checking to make sure any links you click are in fact going to the new site. 

At midnight tonight (Mountain Time) the Stampin’ Up! online store will go offline.  The new site will launch at 7:00 am (Mountain Time) and you’ll be able to start ordering from the new catalog! 


Whale Done Bundle


Reminder:  Today’s the last day to earn Bonus Days Coupon Codes! With every $50 purchase, you’ll earn a $5.00 Bonus Coupon that you can apply to an order starting tomorrow (August 4-31). 

It’s time for a card! I used the Whale Done Bundle to create today’s card which includes the Whale Done stamp set and the Whale Builder Punch (you can find all the products I used in the Supply List below). I started with a base of Pretty Peacock cardstock and then ran a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock through my die-cutting machine using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the center of my card base.

Next, I cut two pieces of Whale of a Time 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper into 1″ strips (you can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List) and placed them above and below the embossed Seabed piece.

The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set, Whale Done, in Balmy Blue ink.  I cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies and cut another larger circle using Pretty Peacock cardstock. The whale was cut out of the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper using the Whale Builder Punch (so easy, right?).  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the whale and the Pretty Peacock scalloped circle.
