Stampin’ Up! Follow Your Dream Chaser

Happy happy HAAWWWWMP Day!!!  AND – I think we’re going to have this weekend off so it really IS hump day!! 🙂  Whoo-Hoo!!

There are a couple of new announcements down below – one about a super Joining Special coming up on 1 July and the other about our Buy-Three-Get-One Free DSP Sale – also on the horizon and starting on 1 July.  So be sure to check them out, okay?

My card today uses some ideas from the catalog for the new Follow Your Dreams stamp set – bundled with the Chase Your Dreams Framelits (so you can get them together and save 10%).  And I added a some Tranquil Textures and Twinkle Twinkle DSPs.  Take a look-see:

I started with some Fresh Fig Tranquil Textures DSP and matted it on a panel of Soft Sea Foam for the card front.  Then I used my Banner Triple Punch to cut a banner end in a strip of Twinkle Twinkle DSP and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the pretty dream catcher image from the Follow Your Dreams stamp set in Granite Gray ink.  Then I adhered it to its Soft Sea Foam mat and to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut the Chase Your Dream dream catcher in Soft Sea Foam – and adhered it directly to the panel with Liquid Glue.  I also cut the large sentiment die – twice – in Night of Navy card stock and adhered the two cuts together with Liquid Glue.  Then I added it over top of the dream catchers with Liquid Glue.

On some Petal Pink paper from the Petal Promenade DSP, I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink.  I used my Stampin’ Write Marker to ink just the “Follow Your” portion of the stamp.  Then I snipped the sentiment out and popped it above the die cut sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped some Petal Pink, Fresh Fig and Night of Navy feathers – there are two images on one stamp, so I used my Stampin’ Write Markers – on Whisper White and cut them out with the matching Chase Your Dream dies.  I adhered the two single feathers with Liquid Glue and popped the double-feather on with a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow from some Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.  To finish, I added some Twinkle Adhesive-Backed Sequins and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a single Petal Pink feather in the middle of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Petal Pink and Fresh Fig feather on the front…

…and some more Twinkle Twinkle DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a beautiful set this Follow Your Dreams bundle is, y’all!  I LOVE the detailed dies – and the SENTIMENT die! – in the Chase Your Dreams Framelits – they’re gorgeous and perfectly complement the stamped sentiments!  Don’t be shy about looking for likely papers in your stash – there are so many wonderful designs and colors just waiting to be used!  Hope you like!





P.S.  I used three different Designer Series Papers in this card.  Cool, huh!?  And – even coolER because…when July rolls around….You’ll be able to partake of the wonderful Buy-Three-Get-One Free sale!  Check out the papers that will be included in the promotion!

Get ready to stock up! 🙂

Online Host Club Logo

Do you have a long wish-list (and who doesn’t?!?)?  Do you like getting FREE Stampin’ Up! goodies (and – again – who doesn’t?)?  An Online Host Club just might be the answer!

Here’s how it works:

You’ll sign up for a 6 month term and commit to:

  • A $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Placing your order by the 20th of each month
  • Using the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

Once 6 members have joined, a random draw will determine your host month and you are guaranteed:

  • A $150.00 Workshop order during your host month
  • $15.00 minimum of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host month.

Here’s a look at the host sets in question – remember they can ONLY be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards and you only get THOSE when you place an individual order over $150 OR you’re the “host” on a workshop that goes over $150 (and each month is guaranteed to be a $150 show – minimum!!).

  • You earn TWO Peppermint Reward points for every $25 that you order on your Host Club Orders.  So your $25.00 order earns TWO Peppermints every month, a $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 12 reward points during your membership, building up your Peppermints towards FREE Items!
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your Host Month
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of the 6 months, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term

During your host month you’re welcome to gather extra orders to increase your host rewards (just give your friends the host code for their orders), it’s that easy! And if you already have 5 other friends that want to do this, you can start your own Exclusive Club!

So – if it sounds like fun, give me a shout at and get a spot reserved!
