Happy Birthday in Calypso Coral and Tranquil Tide

Hi everyone!  

I have a quick card share for you today.  Tomorrow is Day 1 for the new annual catalog and I need to finalize my order!  I have three lists here, but I need to condense it down to one!  So, forgive me for posting and running, but I have pressing matters at hand!

Quick reminder and things to remember....ordering starts at noon Mountain Time.  So, if you try to order before Stampin' Up is ready, you won't get in.  The ordering system at Stampin' Up! will be VERY busy tomorrow, and will probably be down for part of the day.  Anxious customers and demonstrators usually crash the system a couple of times during the day.  

Now for my card:  


The Happy Birthday greeting is die cut in both Calypso Coral and Tranquil Tide.  After layering, I added a little Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle to the image.  The Designer Series Paper in the background of the image panel is the new Delightful Daisy pack.  I finished off the card by adding a piece of 1/2" Woven Ribbon in Tranquil Tide and three Clear Faceted Gems.

Housework Whenever

Hello stampers!

There is a great set in the new catalog, "Crafting Forever".  Every image in the set really speaks to me!  And, as an added bonus, one of the patterns in the "Pick a Pattern"  Designer Series Paper pack also works well with that set.  Take a look at today's card to see if you agree.  I colored the main image with a blender pen.  I used the Layering Ovals and Layering Squares Framelits to frame the image panel and the greeting panel.  I attached the image panel on a slant to make it look a little askew...just like my craft desk!

Catching Up with Stampin' Up!

Hello stampers,

The new catalog goes live on June 1, so there is a lot to update.  Be sure to read to the end for my own personal new catalog ordering special.  No new card today, but I did post a new card to my Facebook page, Stamp With Melanie.


The Eastern Palace Early Release Bundles are available through May 31.  If you've had one of these gems on your wish list, this is your last chance to grab it along with the free gifts!


Retiring products are available through May 31.  Get those favorites while you can!

Header_PP_Creativity_Demo_May2017

The Paper Pumpkin new subscriber bundle is available through June 10.  This is a great opportunity to give it a test drive!

20170322_AC17-Cover_en-US

The new catalog goes live on June 1.  **Ordering will be available beginning at noon Mountain Time.  This is a little different than previous years.  Mountain Time is 2 hours earlier than Eastern Time and 1 hour earlier than Central Time.  You get the idea!

New catalog products currently not available:

On Backorder:

Item 144141  estimated to be available June 19
Faceted Gems Gold

Item 144142  estimated to be available June 19
Faceted Gems Clear

Item 144179  estimated to be available July 3
Trim 1/4" (6.4 mm) Copper

Item 144200  estimated to be available June 5
Enamel Dots Glitter

Not orderable:

Item 143713   estimated to be available June 26
Punch Daisy



Melanie's new catalog ordering special:  I've given this considerable thought.  I've read about the specials other demonstrators are offering.  You know, one of those "order these products and I will offer them to you at this price."  And in the end, I decided I didn't want to restrict my customers to only ordering products I've selected.  After all, you may not want those products.  So I decided that plan will not work for us.

Here's what I came up with: from June 1 - 20, for every order more than $60.00, I will offer you a 15% discount on your order.  Tax and shipping will be based on the full retail amount of the products you are ordering.  Plus, you will receive my June ordering bonus (an assortment of Pearl Basic Jewels, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and one of each color of the In Color Bitty Bows).

How it will work:


  • Send me an email at mcoverston@gmail.com with your order and your PayPal email address.  
  • I will send you an invoice with the total to pay via PayPal.   
  • Once payment is received, your order will be placed and will ship direct to you in about a week.        Note:  backordered items may take a longer to ship, but will come directly to you.
  • If you order more than $150.00, you will also earn host benefits.  If you order $350.00 or greater, you will earn the host benefits shown in the catalog, PLUS a bonus $35.00 in product credit benefits.  (BEST VALUE)

If you have any questions about any of this, please shoot me a note!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy your holiday weekend and happy stampin'!

The Front Porch

Greetings Stampers,

When I saw today's card from my very talented sister, I had two thoughts:

1.  I would call this post "I See A Red Door..." and then I thought, not only would I be dating myself, but no one would know the reference.  Do you know?  Leave me a comment here or on my Facebook page, Stamp with Melanie.

and 

2.  We sure do think alike sometimes!  You see, we haven't spoken since my Aunt's funeral a couple of weeks ago - and we surely didn't talk about cards for my blog.  Yet, before she had a chance to see my post from yesterday, her card arrived.  Sometimes there is no denying we are sisters!  If you are a regular reader, by now I'm sure you have an idea what you will see, but there is more!

So, here is her card:



I love it!  Those awesome chairs are from another new bundle, Colorful Seasons.  I'll be sharing more from that bundle in the next couple of weeks.

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend...and please, remember those that sacrificed so much for us.

At the Home With You

Greetings stampers,

There are several wonderful new bundles available in the new catalog.  One that is sure to become a year round favorite is the "At Home With You" bundle.  This set features a "front door" and a number of customizing framelits and stamps.  You can even design a card where the door opens!

Take a look at my cards:


What a fun set!  Can you tell that the red door opens?

Here is a closer look:

Is this bundle on your list?  If not, take a second look.  It's on page 54 of the new catalog!

Happy Celebrations

Hello stampers!!!

I am so excited to share with you my new Stamp(set) of the Month!  Details are below.  But first, how about a look at a couple of the cards you can make with this the products.  Be sure to read to the end for all the details!

First up, a birthday card....or any "Happy" card...



and a Celebrate card:



Now for the details:

Stamp(set) of the Month – Happy Celebrations

The Stamp(set) of the Month for June is Happy Celebrations.

When you order (SOTM)
    Happy Celebrations #143012 and
    Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders #142760

You will get:
An email with a file containing pictures and directions to complete 4 cards or projects.  The two cards shared today are a preview and will be included in this month’s package.  All supplies and dimensions will be listed in the file.  The email will be sent to the email address on file used when you placed your order. 

In addition, you will receive a thank you card from me along with a small gift that can be used for completing your projects.  This will be sent a couple of weeks later by US Mail.

This is a very versatile set that can be used for oh so many occasions!  I am starting the Stamp(set) of the Month (SOTM) for June now for two reasons:
1.       This set is available now (and it’s not likely to go on backorder on June 1)
2.       There are so many celebratory events this time of year

So, when you order this set by June 20 and use Club Code UMM7ZWVJ, you will receive the email, thank you card using this stamp set, and your small gift!  I’m sure you will love it all!

Bonus, you will also qualify for my ordering bonus for May and June!  Yippee!!!  More free stuff!

Ordering bonus for May:

With your $40.00 in May, I will send you 2 feet (24 inches) of 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in each of the new 2017-2019 In Colors.  That's a total of 10 feet of ribbon!  Free!  Woohoo!  This offer is good only for orders placed through May 31!

Sending Hugs

Hello stampers!

Can you feel the excitement in the air?  The new annual catalog goes into effect in just a little over a week - and the anticipation is building!

For me, one of the most popular bundles in the new catalog will be Lovely Inside and Out. This is an incredibly versatile stamp set combined with some great word thinlits.  I think you'll love it.   This bundle can be found on page 157 in your catalog.

And here is the quick and easy card I came up with to share with you today:


I stamped the images in the new In Colors of  Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide.  The word "hugs" is from a silver foil sheet and "sending" is stamped in Basic Black.  The image panel is framed by Basic Black cardstock and mounted on Thick Whisper White Cardstock.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for news of my workshop by mail for June.  I'll share all the details then!

A Birthday and a Baby Girl

Hi everyone!

May 22 is the last day for guaranteed availability of stamp sets retiring as of May 31.  So, if there is one that has caught your eye, it's time to place that order!

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards that both feature stamp sets that are on that retiring list.  One is to celebrate a family birthday and one is to celebrate the pending arrival of one of two new great nieces coming in a couple of months! Woohoo!  Exciting times in our family!

First up is the birthday card.  This card uses the Cake Crazy set.  This is the first time I've used this set.  I've seen so many cute cards with this set and I had to have it, but once it got here, all it did was sit on my shelf!  Well, no more.  I pulled it out for this card:



And here is the card for the new baby girl:


This card features the Little Cuties stamp set.  Also one I had to have, but never used.  The baby girl card uses some new products, too.  Can you pick them out?

I really both of these sets and even though they are retiring, they will stay on my shelf!

Cake Crazy card:

Product List
Hello Baby Girl card:

New products:
Powder Pink Cardstock
Berry Burst Cardstock
Berry Burst Classic Stampin' Pad
2016-2018 In Color Acrylic Glitter Shapes
