Happy Birthday!

Oh my! What a birthday it’s been! So many cards and texts equals such a bountiful blessing to my heart! You all have been such an encouragement to me! My Daniel walked by the mail Saturday and comments, “You have so many friends!” He is so right! I just can’t imagine life without all the wonderful people in my life!

Thank you! for making my birthday so special!

To inspire you with beautiful cards….let me share my birthday cards….they brought so many smiles to my face! The first bunch I opened and set all around my desk when I got home Friday evening from an belated anniversary trip to West Virginia to white water rafting and then Scott decided to go horse back riding. You can see some pictures on his facebook (Scott Boyle).

Thank you all! It has been a wonderful day!

Here are my last 2 cards from our team meeting.

Whale Done Punch Bundle

Come join me with another cute card using Whale Done punch bundle! This month’s club card uses this bundle and Whale of a Time 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to make a cute Peekaboo card!

Elizabeth also designed this card using the Whale Done bundle. It was fun to make and uses the NEW Water Painters #151298 on page 146. We use the widest Water Painter to color the background with Pool Party and Pretty Peacock inks and heat before stamping other sea creatures.

Tip: the small fish are stamped in VersaMark ink and White embossing powder before the background is painted on with wide Water Painter.

Whale Done – scrapbook the accomplishments in your loved ones life!

We’ve been having so much fun with the new suite…Whale of a Time!

This includes: page 94-96 #154126 $65.50

  • Whale Done Punch Bundle
  • Whale of a Time Sequins
  • Whale of a Time 6 x 6 DSP
  • Seabed 3 D embossing folder
  • and 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon in Pool Party

Not only have we made scrapbook spread, but have started making some cards too! The Designer Series Paper is so brilliant and fun patterns, stamps have been fun to use and whale is so easy to punch out!

Get the kids involved with this set….I think they’ll have a lot of fun too!

For our other scrapbook spread, I chose Forever Fern bundle. This is a new classic stand by…it so works for sooooo many different projects. The dies are just a MUST! #154094 for bundle or #152714 for die set

Notice the bluish color of die cut leaves……it’s such a cool technique! Elizabeth and I have been experimenting with the new Water Painters #151298 for $12. Totally cool! love the widest of 3 water painters!!!

Here’s what we did to achieve the leaves up in the scrapbook spread:

  • die cut leaves out of Pool Party CS
  • press lid to ink pad while closed to get ink on the inside lid
  • place on some scrap paper or silicone mat
  • use Water Painter to pick up pigment and apply to
  • die cut leaves
  • let dry or heat with heating too
  • have fun with lots of colors and designs!

STAMPIN’ CUT & EMBOSS MACHINE PREORDER COMING!

We are excited to announce the preorder and customer launch dates for the standard Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine! (The Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine availability will come later as explained below.)

Demonstrator preorder (standard machine only): 4 August 2020

Customer launch (standard machine and replacement plates): 1 September 2020

The standard machine comes with all the plates you need to get started. The preorder will not include the replacement plates, but they will be available beginning with the customer launch on 1 September. Note that the Cutting Plates and Adhesive Sheets are already available to order. The optional Magnetic Cutting Plate and Impression Mats will not be available on the demonstrator preorder or by the customer launch; we’ll keep you updated on their availability.

The Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and its replacement plates are still in production and we aren’t ready to share a demonstrator preorder or customer launch date for them; the mini machines have experienced delays due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic but unless unforeseen circumstances arise, we expect that you and your customers will be able to order it by the end of this year.

Gorgeous Posies

By far, Gorgeous Posies card kit is my favorite! It has beautiful colors, design, and in general, I just love looking at the cards!

Check it out on page 8 in our new annual catalog! Here are my designs – you can make your own. Kit comes with 4 designs with 4 cards each. You can then put the sentiment you want on each card. With a little extra elements to play with and an absolutely gorgeous box to put your cards back in or something special.

This week, I received some cute cute cards! The first one was made by Jane and Gayle…..

from Mary
paper pumpkin from Linda
Want a little extra stamping stimulation, discounts of 20% or 25%, meet with friends, and my team would add a free “lunch” and gifts? (I think they miss lunch the most since Covid-19!)

Birds and Branches

Lately, we’ve been amused at a new bird feeder my husband put up….

Here is a male and female house finch enjoying eating from the new feeder. The interesting part was when 2 baby squirrels decided to enjoy a meal too. The feeder is now in the back yard thanks to those squirrels.

So, I thought I would continue my exploration of Birds and Branches…..I am using it for club this month. Let’s see if I can make some house finches.

It’s almost a direct copy from our new annual catalog page 174. Here’s how….

  • begin by die cutting the branch image out of Whisper White card stock
  • then color it using your Stampin’ Blend markers. I used dark Soft Suede for branch (color in completely accurate in picture), leaves are light and dark Granny Apple Green and a touch of Old Olive
  • the “red berries” are Clear Epoxy Dropelets pg. 156 and colored with Light Cherry Cobbler

Next, using Seaside Spray ink, press the ink pad to the lid while closed to put some of the ink on to the inside of the lid. Use an Aquapainter with plenty of water to pick up some of the color and paint a piece of Whisper White card stock lightly

I then stamped “Hello” on to bottom right.

  • Whisper White CS measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
  • Matte is Misty Moonlight measuring 3 5/8 x 4 7/8

stamp the birds from Birds and Branches Bundle #154107 pg. 174 in Crumb Cake on Whisper White CS.

Now you can use your Stamping’ Blend alcohol markers to color them in …..whatever colors you want to use.

I thought I’d like to make my birds like the house finches…the male had deep red on his head and neck while the female is brown.

and then die cut

Now assemble…..

This is such a cute set of birds! How could be need more birds! gotta have the bird nest and there is a beautiful edge die and then there’s this circle die image you can use too with the birds…..just have fun!

Cards to Inspire You….
  • Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards and Envelopes #153101 pg. 10
  • Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack #153058
  • In Color 1/4″ Ribbon – pg. 160
  • Field of Flowers #152589 pg. 117
Beautiful World Bundle and World of Gold Specialty DSP #152491 pg. 150

If you need inspiration for this month’s Paper Pumpkin…here are some alternative ways to use the kit…..

Mountain Air goes scrapbooking

Another scrapbook spread using Mountain Air bundle this month! I would like to invite you to join me next month….June 20th for our next time to scrapbook! But for now….here’s May’s ideas…..

The next scrapbook is a vintage spread. I love using the retired Pressed Petals DSP and Washi Tape! And added some more 3-D flowers using a die from Magnolia Memory and Perennial Flower punch.

Tip: punch and die cut pieces of flowers, spritz with water or quickly dip under water and scrunch and wad up….gently unfold but don’t smooth flat….let flower card stock dry in scrunched position….when dry, adhere together and add a flower center.

Last Chance for 2019-2020 Retiring Products

We’re down to the wire! Is there something you have thought about over and over? That stamp set or die set you have wanted? This week is the time to purchase before it’s gone! Some great products have been discounted.

One of my favorites is this die set:

Botanical Tags #151790 discounted to $10.80

Jane saw one Stampin’ Up demonstrator had designed a beautiful card using the Botanical Tags die with birds and fit it perfectly into Garden Gateway Dies.

Above is one of the Graces Garden cards I have made….would it not be so pretty adding the Botanical Tag die inside the gate? Fun things to try out for $10.80 for a set of dies!

Please use Hostess code # GW7YYUQS

You can contact me to place an order or order directly from my web site below :

https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/default.aspx

Please know shipping is a week or so delayed. Stampin Up is working as hard as they can but with splitting shits and keeping workers apart and healthy as they can and preparing for a new catalog….they have had a lot to keep up with. Orders are coming and I see there is a gain in lessing days to ship time.

Though sad to see some products retiring…..I am super excited about our new annual catalog! Here are some cards I made for our team meeting this past Saturday using some of the new products.

The Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle is made from a new stamp set called Forever Fern. I changed the look using the same paper I made from the above card to a vintage look below…

Next, we used the new pattern paper, Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper and the absolutely elegant Forever Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper as a gold accent.


and again for this card, Forever Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper with In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for a simple and polished card. The sentiment is heat embossed on the gold label.

And finally, here are some cards we made for my team using the Jar of Flowers stamp set

I hear there are some perks for hosting a party and being a customer in June. Think about inviting one or two people you would like to reconnect with. I bring the cards and supplies and let’s party as we start reconnecting with one another.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’m here to help!
