Stampin’ Up! For the New Two Botanicals for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2

Mornin’, y’all –  it’s Thursday and that means it’s Blog Hop Day!  All our Happy Stampers are hopping today, so I know you’ve got a bunch of great projects to see today!  Please take a minute to check them all out – and maybe leave us a comment or two.  We love hearing what you think of our efforts each week! 🙂

Yesterday I shared a very elegant Wedding card with you – that I also told you was completely not the right card for my friend – who is getting married this weekend – in good jeans, a nice white linen shirt and a Blue western jacket.  Please don’t take that as any sort of criticism at all – it’s her day and that is such a perfect choice of outfit for her….and she’ll be comfortable and able to relax and enjoy the day as she marries her best friend!  I meant it only to illustrate that yesterday’s card wasn’t right.

I think today’s is.  And since it’s on its way to her – I surely hope she thinks so, too!

I used the Occasions stamp sets In the Meadow and Timeless Textures, as well as the For the New Two set from the Annual Catalog.  I reprised – basically – my color scheme from yesterday, with the exception of the “color”.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! First Sight For The New Two

Good morning – I hope that you’re enjoying your week!  It’s almost over.  Be brave!

This weekend, my best friend is getting married in Nebraska.  My hubs and I aren’t going to be able to get there for it – and I’m sad about that.  But, it is what it is, and I know she understands why.  As a consolation prize, I’ve made her a batch of chocolate dipped Espresso Chocolate Chip Biscotti.  Which she asks me for every time I see or talk to her!  Their wedding invitation said “No Gifts” (this is a second marriage for them both) but I figure cookies isn’t really a gift….right? 😉

And – of course, I made her a wedding card!

I used the pretty wedding-oriented stamp set called For the New Two and a little Timeless Textures.  And First Sight, also from the Occasions catalog.  Take a look-see:

SAB Logo

Good morning, ya’ll!  I hope that you had a wonderful Easter with your families and friends!  I have a super easy, super quick card to share with you today – but, first, I wanted to take a hot second to remind you of one of the biggest benefits available to you during Sale-A-Bration.  And that’s the extra bonus money you have to spend on the world’s best bundled kit – the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit!  You already know that when you sign up as a Demonstrator – whether you want to do this as a business or as a Hobby Demo (either way you get 20% off everything you order! ) – you get $125 worth of great SU! product for your investment of $99.

And it comes to you with FREE shipping!

But.  When you sign up during Sale-A-Bration – Stampin’ Up! is going to give you an EXTRA $30 worth of FREE goodies.

And you get to pick all $155 worth of product.  No “Starter Packages” for us – you pick what you want! 🙂

SAB 2016 Sign Up Bonus Table

And it still comes to you with FREE shipping!

So – if you have any interest whatsoever in joining Stampin’ Up! – now is the absolutely best time to do it.

And – did I mention that there’s no commitment at all??  If you decide to stay active – you do.  If you decide not to – you don’t.  Done!

Let me know if you want to get this done before the end of Sale-A-Bration….which is Thursday!  31 March.  Don’t miss out, okay?

And – there are some other great bennies that happen during Sale-A-Bration.  Check those out here.

This has been a message from your friendly neighborhood Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator.  We’ll now return you to our regularly scheduled blog post! 😉

I wanted a quick and easy Clean and Simple Card.  So, I pulled out the Sheltering Tree swath image, a few pretty blue ink pads, and the Bold Butterfly Framelits.  And this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Easter Cross

Good Easter morn’ to you all!  Rejoice in this day! 🙂

I have an Easter Cross card to share today – but it’s a bit of a cautionary tale!  It could be titled: Check Supplies Twice Before Beginning.  Or: Always Finish Your Card Front First.  And the main character in this decidedly NON-fiction tale is….Gold Foil.  You’ll see why shortly!

I used several flower makers for this card – the Botanical Builder Framelits, Petite Petals punch flowers and Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack flowers.  And I went back to the In The Meadow stamp set.  Just a reminder – this set is in the Occasions catalog – and is only guaranteed active thru the end of the sale period – 31 May.  Which seems like a long way away – until you realize it’s practically APRIL!  Can you even believe that??  So if you’re wanting this lovely stamp set, get it soon!

Anyway – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! The Wilderness Awaits In The Meadow!

So – I love when someone asks me to make a card for them to give to someone special.  For me, it means that they really care enough to not want a cookie-cutter card from the grocery store aisle.  And that’s cool.  I also really like it – a lot! – when that request gives me an excuse to buy a new goody!  Like the card I have to share with you today.

My friend has a friend who’s been in the hospital – in and out – for the past several weeks.  A long time!  He’s a “dog guy” – I made the leap that he’s a “hunting dog guy” – since those are a lot of the kinds of folks she knows.  So she wanted a card with a dog and the outdoors.

Sadly – I had yet to purchase the The Wilderness Awaits stamp set.  I’ve been so busy acquiring Occasions catalog sets and bundles that I kept pushing that down my list.  So now was the perfect opportunity!  Once it arrived, I paired it with the In the Meadow set – which did come from the Occasions catalog and I very much hope makes it into the next Annual!  I added a few of the great sentiments from Greatest Greetings and….take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rose Wonder Watercolor Beautiful Blessing

Happy Friday!  I’m peering at you thru the miasma of yellow-green-pine-pollen-plogged eyeballs!  The world has become a yellow fog here in the South.  Just about the time the temps rose back into the I-want-the-windows-open range, too.  But you just can’t do it – or that crud will be all over everything.  So…we hunker in our “air tight pollen resistant” houses and glare resentfully outside.  Waiting.  Waiting.  Hoping there’ll be a few days – weeks would be better – between the end of Pollen Season and the start of Hot Humid Season.

And keeping the rescue inhaler in the pants pocket! 🙂

So, today’s card is a spring-y card, again (no, I didn’t use any yellow embossing powder….), that uses the Rose Wonder Suite – which includes the bundled Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlits!  And I did a little watercoloring today with my Aqua Painter.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Nice Cuppa Thanks for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2

Mornin’, y’all –  it’s Thursday and that means it’s Blog Hop Day!  Welcome back for another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  I hope that once you’ve perused my offering you’ll check out all the other projects from the ladies-who-hop (and Sandi’s back!! 🙂 )!  For the moment, grab a cuppa something cozy and settle in for a spell.

We all worked with a color challenge filled with bright colors – colors that just called me to the Have a Cuppa suite of goodies in the Occasions catalog.

See?  So, I decided to make a thank you card – I’m always needing one for something these days! – and hit the Cups & Kettle Framelits and the A Nice Cuppa (that’s awkward phrasing, isn’t it??) stamp set that I got all bundled up.  Take a look-see:
