Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Love Blossoms Sneak Peek Sampler for the Happy Stamper’s Blog Hop


Here we go, folks – the very last Happy Stampers Blog Hop of the year.  When next we meet, it’ll be 2016!  I hope that you’ll take a moment on this – the last day of the year – to check out the card I have to share, and then hop thru all the other ladies’ posts to peruse their projects as well!

I used several designs from the Love Blossoms DSP Stack (coming on 5 Jan) to make a sort of sampler.  Then I pulled the huge and gorgeous heart die and a few stamps from my Bloomin’ Love Bundle to finish it off.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sky High Bloomin’ Love!

Mike Mike Mike Mike MIKE!  Guess what day it is?!?  It’s LAST-HAWP-DAY-OF-2015-DAY!!

I think.

I’ve been screwed up on what day it is since Christmas!  Christmas just happened on the wrong day of the week for me.  So I’ve been messed up – hopefully I’ll remember when Friday is and eat my black eyed peas and greens! 🙂

Today I have a card that combines Bloomin’ Love – from the 2016 Occasions Catalog – and Sky Is The Limit – from the Sale-A-Bration Flyer.  I ended up with a really clean and simple card, that I think you’ll like!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! What’s Up at Stampin’ Up! on 29 December 2015

Here we are – believe it or don’t.  The last and finally final update and new set of Weekly Deals for 2015!  Yowza!

Couple of things to remind you of –

There’s still time to get in on the Occasions Catalog shares.  I have a couple more openings available before the order goes in on 5 Jan – which is one week from today.  If you scroll down a little ways, you’ll see what you’re going to receive with your share.  It’s a great way to get a little bit of everything before you commit to full packs/packages of new products!  So, if you want in, now’s the time!

The end of the year marks the beginning of the end for the Holiday Retiring Products and the Year End Clearance Sale!  Both these promotions end on 4 Jan – so if you’ve been waiting to stock up….. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! told us today that they’re doing a Paper Pumpkin promotion in January to coincide with Sale-A-Bration.  If you sign up for a 3 month pre-paid subscription to Paper Pumpkin – you’ll only pay $55 (a savings of $4.95 over the regular 3-month subscription).  Which, oh by the way, will ALSO qualify you for a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  Sounds like win-win to me!  Great fun kits come to your door for three months – PLUS a free SAB item.  Yep.  Definitely win-win!  If you’ve been toying with trying out Paper Pumpkin – getting in during SAB is a pretty good financial choice! 🙂  Check out this video – it shows you what folks received in their November 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit (just as an example of what to expect!)

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Thank You on Perfectly Artistic Designer Paper

Welcome to the last Monday of 2015.  Can you even believe that!?  I’m having a hard time realizing that 2015 is almost gone.

I’m having a hard time gathering up my annual piles to take to Goodwill, too.  Do you guys do that?  Or are you much better organized than I am (of this I have no doubt whatsoever!) and you take some here and take some there and are smugly shaking your finger at me right now?? 😉  I know.  Every year I say I’m going to deal with taxes better – I say it at the end of the year when it’s too late for the current year, but I swear I’ll do better for the one coming in 4 days.

Guess how well that’s going for me?



Anywho!  On to today’s card share – the last one for a Monday in 2015.  Yesterday’s card was all about the Framelits – the gorgeous Botanical Builder Framelits.  The flowers did all the work.  For today, I swung (swang?  Did done had swung? – Big Bang reference) the other way, and made a super simple card that lets some beautiful new Designer Paper do all the work.  This paper, called Perfectly Artistic Designer Paper will be one of the free items you can pick with a $50 (before shipping and handling!) product purchase when Sale-A-Bration begins on 5 Jan!

I combined it with the nice sentiment stamp called Watercolor Thank You, from the Annual Catalog and made a monochromatic card….well, take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Builder Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday – hope that your day-after-Christmas was fun and safe.  Did anyone go see Star Wars?  We haven’t had a chance to go yet, but my brother tells me it’s awesome!  Considering that I saw the original – yes, about a thousand years ago! – like 10 times….I can’t wait to see it.  If you haven’t seen it yet, he recommends seeing it in the largest screen you can! 🙂

My card share for today is another sneak peek at the coming-soon-in-the-2016-Occasions-Catalog Botanical Builder Framelits.  I also used some of the Botanicals For You and the Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack.  Those two items are in the Sale-A-Bration flyer – we’ll talk about that at the end of the post.  When I combined those new products with some Kraft Corrugated Paper, here’s what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sassy Salutations Watercoloring

Well – Christmas is a distant, food-coma memory!

Okay – well, maybe not.  Not a distant memory – but a food-coma certainly!  I’m home from dinner – the kitchen is finally clean.  You’d have thought I did the entire dinner – for 20 people! – instead of a couple of sides and the prime rib.  And grew the sweet potatoes.  Shelled the pecans.  Threw the pottery for the casserole dishes.  Holy smokes!  I’m pretty sure I used every freakin’ dish, pan, pot, utensil and serving dish in my kitchen. 🙁

But – that’s all done now.

So, since I’m whupped and the day is late, I’m going to be lazy.  Instead of trying to make a new card, I thought I’d share with you the technique I used for the card I posted on Christmas Day.  It’s real easy – and kind of fun.  I used Sassy Salutations for my sentiment.  I’d say take-a-look-see, but that seems redundant since you look-see’d it yesterday!

Stampin’ Up! Wonderland Blessing for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Happy Christmas Eve!  I know that you’re all busy doing your final get-ready-for-tomorrow things – cooking, wrapping, and some-assembly-required-ing!  Thanks for taking the time to see what we’ve created for you –  I hope that you’ll enjoy my project and then head to everyone’s blog and see what they’ve shared!!

I went pure, straight up this-is-the-night-the-Holy-Child-was-born with my card today.  I pulled some Woodland TIEF, a couple of Lovely as a Tree pines, and the Holy Family themselves from the lovely All Ye Faithful stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Fluttering Love Blossoms Sneak Peek

Happy 2-Days-Until-Christmas, y’all!  Back at home for a few days – and I’ve discovered a new luxury!  Yesterday I spent some time – kind of a lot of time, really – unpacking all my stuff from my recent trip.  And unpacking boxes of goodies from Stampin’ Up! that I’d ordered while I was away.  Then I sat down to make a card to share for today.  Ahhhhhhhhh……what a treat to have all my “stuff” at my fingertips!  All my stamp sets to choose from.  All my TIEFS.  All my inks and paper colors.  Sigh…….it was lovely! 🙂

I am having the tiniest bit of difficulty getting back into the swing of at-home-time-management.  Dinner?  Now?? So, I’m actually writing this post on Wednesday morning which, if you’ve been following me for any time, you’ll know is not my norm.  But – I got to too-late-for-me-to-think last night with my card barely done.  See what I mean?  Time management – fail!  But I’ll get better…

So, with everything at hand, I pulled out my Fluttering TIEF, mixed it up with some Love Blossoms DSP (coming soon – 5 Jan!) and a little Papillon Potpourri and a couple of Bloomin’ Love stamps (also coming soon) and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! What’s Up at Stampin’ Up! on 22 December 2015

Good morning!  It’s almost Christmas in Georgia (probably where you are, too, huh? 😉 ) – and it’s going to be raining and 70 degrees today.  And they’re talking about thunderstorms and isolated tornadoes tomorrow night.  Seriously?  I don’t think there’s ever been a Christmas song wishing for a rainy, tornadic Christmas! 🙁  Definitely no white Christmas on the books for us this year.  I hope if you want a white Christmas, that you’re going to have one..

The Year End Clearance Sale and the Retiring List are both drawing to a close (4 Jan 16).  Stampin’ Up! just added even more items to the Clearance Sale, so be sure to check it out!  Whoo-hoo!

Don’t forget that the 2016 Occasions Shares are open – but your chance to get in on those ends on 3 Jan 16!

SU! gave us a little note today about the Stampin’ Trimmer blades.  We’re working with the supplier of our Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades on a quality issue. Because of this, our next shipment of blades won’t come in until the end of February.  Just wanted you to know, if you’v’e ordered trimmer blades!
