Enjoy Today

Hello stampers!

I am absolutely delighted that Stampin' Up! made the decision to release the Eastern Palace suite of products in advance of the new annual catalog.  There is so much going on with that suite between the stamp set, the thinlits, and the stickers.  The possibilities are truly endless!  And to think that when I first saw the components, I wasn't thrilled at all.  It was only the opportunity to get something new early that swayed me to place that order.  To say that I am happy with my decision is an understatement!  I know now that I could make a different card with this suite of products every day for a long time and not get tired of these products!

Here's a card I made last week with a distressed background.


I love how the outer layer of this thinlit lifts up from the cardstock to add dimension, and the stamped circles add interest.  The gold sticker in the middle adds a touch of sparkle.



This product suite will be available for customers beginning Monday, May 1.  I'm including all the information I've previously posted for your convenience.

To download the flyer, click here.

For anyone that orders either of the 2 bundles, I will send you a .pdf from Stampin' Up! with full instructions to complete 3 cards.

When you order, please use host code KWHTQ4UE. Everyone that orders a bundle using that host code will get their name in a drawing for a special gift!  Note:  if your order total is greater than $150.00, do not use the host code (doing so will forfeit your earned benefits).  You will still be entered in the drawing for a special gift.

If you have any questions, shoot me an email!

Happy Stampin'!

Irresistibly Floral

Hi everyone!

I signed up for a table at a local craft fair in a couple of weeks, so I've been busy working on ideas for things to have there.  One of the items will be a set of cards and I wanted to share it with you.  The cards are made using the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper (#141644) and other retiring products.  But to me, it's that paper that makes the cards.  I can't believe it has been available for a year and I'm only now starting to use it!  All of these cards are made from the same sheet of paper.  The paper is white on white and I used the sponge brayers to apply color to each.  The designs in this pack are so pretty! As of this writing, all of the products used to create these cards are still available for purchase.

First a look at the set:


And now a closer look at each of the cards:

Number One!

Hi everyone,

Stampin' Up! announced Tuesday morning that the Clearance Rack has been updated!  There are great  bargains to be found at up to 60% off.  Click the banner below to check it out.

Clearance Rack


Have you seen the faux patina technique?  It has intrigued me, so I decided to give it a try.  While there are things I will do differently next time, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.  Thanks to Maria Willis for the inspiration.  Have you tried it yet?

Window Shopping Birthday

Hi everyone!

Last week I challenged myself to use the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishment Kit on a card.  Today I am sharing the card I came up with.  Most surprisingly, at least to me, is that it's a card I would give to a guy!  Take a look:
