Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Bloom By Bloom Sneak Peek!

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Hope you’ve got something cool planned for the weekend!  It’s supposed to be gorgeous here so hopefully it’ll dry up a little.  It’s pretty much a soggy mess.  Happy that we don’t have the “snow” phase first!

I have another 2019 Occasions Catalog sneak peek today – is that okay with you??  😉  This one uses the new Bloom By Bloom stamp set and some Happiness Blooms DSP with an assist from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.  Take a look-see:

At OnStage, we did a make-and-take with the Bloom By Bloom stamp set…

So – I was excited to make another one – this time of my own design!

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White that I embossed in the new Dot To Dot TIEF.  As usual, I cut the panel larger than I needed, embossed it, and cut it down to size.  Then I matted it on a piece of Pineapple Punch card stock.

I created the vertical strip with a piece of the Happiness Blooms DSP, that I adhered with Liquid Glue.  Then I wrapped some Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Pack, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

The artwork is a piece of Whisper White card stock on which I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large flower from Bloom By Bloom in Lovely Lipstick.  Then I added the stem and leaves (all on one stamp) in Call Me Clover.

I made a sticky note mask of the large flower and stuck it on top of the stamped image.  Then I stamped more flowers around the image in Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral.

I added the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous in Lovely Lipstick at the bottom of the panel.  Then I added the little Bloom By Bloom dots in Calypso Coral.  I matted the panel on Pineapple Punch and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And – the card was done.


On the inside, I added more Bloom By Bloom flowers and dots in Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pineapple Punch mat and into my Lovely Lipstick card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bloom By Bloom images on the front…

…and some more Happiness Blooms DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Another winner from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!  The Bloom By Bloom stamp set and the Happiness Blooms DSP reside are bright and fun – and will be all ready for you to create beautiful projects! You’ll be able to get them all on 3 Jan 19!  Hope you like!


P.S.  Here’s a few more sneaky looks!

Snowflake Showcase Bundle Updated!

The White Velvet Sheets – a part of the Snowflake Showcase – have been discontinued.  As advertised at the beginning of the promotion, these products were all “while supplies last”.  And once they run out – they’re not being re-ordered.

What does that mean for my special bundles?  Well – I’ve updated the product list to remove the White Velvet Sheets, and reduced the price accordingly.

But folks – if you’ve been thinking you’d wait until the very end of the promotion period – I’d strongly recommend that you NOT wait another moment!  This has been a WILDLY popular set of goodies – and I’d hate for you to miss out.  The stamp sets, thinlits and trinkets are still available – but…there’s no telling for how much longer!

You can click on the picture above to see a fun video showcasing the products.  Then check out the flyer below to take a closer look-see!

Here’s the deets:

  • No limits apply during the customer sales period. So be quick while supplies last!
  • Products available while supplies last from November 1, 2018 until November 30, 2018. This means products will only be available until November 30 or while supplies last, whichever comes first. If a product’s supply is depleted before November 30, it will no longer be available for purchase.
  • Items may be purchased in any type of order.
  • Items may be included as part of a Starter Kit!!  Join now!
  • Ordering deadline:  November 30, 2018; 11:50 PM (MT)

Here’s the updated special money-saving bundle!

Stamps-N-Lingers Snowflake Showcase Bundle:

Snow is Glistening – $21
Happiness Surrounds – $17
Snowfall Thinlits – $39
White Velvet Paper – $5  NO LONGER INCLUDED!
Snowflake Trinkets – $8

With my special bundle – you’re only going to pay $80 (new price!) – all in!

Get the entire Showcase and the notecards and envelopes – shipped directly to you for free –  and save a pretty penny, too!

In the spirit of expectation management, with the significant savings you get with this bundle, I won’t be able to give y’all Peppermints when you order them.

These offers are available to anyone – but I can only ship to addresses (not Post Office boxes!) in the United States or APO Military. 🙂

Thanks for your understanding, y’all!

Holiday Items That May Go Away Soon!

There is always a risk of products selling out without enough time to reorder and restock inventory before a catalog lifecycle is over. When this does happen, it is usually caused by a higher-than-forecasted demand. However, as we upgraded our inventory management system, there were system communication issues with the current holiday catalog and we have just determined that several products are at high risk of early depletion.

We want to share the list of products with you now so you can plan accordingly as you prepare for the holidays.

These products are running low and additional shipments will not be received before the end of the catalog sales period!

  • CHICKEN WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147807)
  • 5/8″ STRIPED BURLAP TRIM (item 147889)
  • IN THE WOODS FRAMELITS DIES (item 147919)*
  • GALVANIZED BUTTONS (item 147891)
  • GALVANIZED CLIPS (item 147806)
  • TAKEOUT THINLITS DIES (item 147927)
  • TRANQUIL TIDE 1/4″ VELVET RIBBON (item 147802)
  • REAL RED 3/8″ MIXED SATIN RIBBON (item 147894)

We don’t know when these products will go out of stock, but it’s possible some may run out as early as next week!

We have also indicated with an asterisk (*) which of these products will carry over into a future catalog.  So those items can be ordered at a later date.

We are working to fix the system communication errors to avoid similar problems in the future. Thank you for your patience.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!  If you’ve got any of the items on the list above in your wish list and you’ve been waiting to get them – this would be a good time to go ahead and get them ordered!!  If you wait, there’s a very good chance that the items will sell out and you won’t be able to get them!  And, even though the carry over items will continue to be available for sale, once the current inventory is depleted, the new supply won’t be back in stock in time for Christmas.

So head over to my Online Store now and get the items that you want while you still can. 🙂

Holiday Catalog Items No Longer Available

Sales for the following products have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a large number of backorders. Because backorders are so costly, we have made the decision to shut these items off effective immediately. Since these products cannot be sent from the manufacturer in time for the holidays, these item numbers will not be reactivated.

Finn Fan Fix

Wayne likes sandwiches.

Finn likes sandwiches.

Oh – and potato chips.

I mean – who doesn’t?!

They often have their man-lunch together.

Well…it’s Wayne’s lunch.

But – he’s been known to share with the wiggle-butt.

We are SO well trained! 🙂

  1. Love the Wiggle Butt … and your card is kinda cute too 🙂

  2. Londa

    Mary did you get my email about my address

    • stampsnlingers

      Hey Linda – no, I didn’t! Just sent you an e-mail…. 🙂

  3. Beautiful card Mary! Love those colors, pretty designer paper too! 🙂 Ginny has figured out who to sit near at meal time here too…strange how that happens. 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – they’re superb people-readers!! Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  4. Susan K

    Love those bright, cheerful colors (esp after all the rain and dreariness we’ve had weatherwise), making a beautiful, happy card! I love the papers but am not convinced I need another flower stamp set yet! 😂 Looks like Wayne’s charge for sharing is to use Finnman as a foot rest!

    • stampsnlingers

      “Too many flowers stamps”? That’s not even a thing, is it?!? LOL! Thanks very much, Susan! 🙂

  5. Well, this set is NOT on my list of ‘must haves’, but you made a beautiful card from it anyway. Just not my style I guess. Folks talk about how well trained our 4-legged friends are, but actually, I think it is their people who are the ones trained! Yep, they read us well. Even my neighbor’s dog knows if he sits on my front step long enough and looks in the window at me, that food will be forthcoming! And, of course when the brown truck or Fedex comes, he knows treats are in store and comes running.

    • stampsnlingers

      They’re scary smart, aren’t they?!? What if they had THUMBS?!? Oh my goodness! 😳😳😳 Thanks much, Julie! 🙂

  6. Kate

    Bright and cherry greeting!
    Looks like lunch lurker longs to be lapful. 😀

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – he would like up in the lap – right after a little snackerel! Thanks, Mom! 🙂

  7. Gorgeous card Mary, love the bright colors and the design! 🙂

  8. Kathy Fennell

    Gorgeous card Mary! The colors are so pretty and vibrant…cool embossing folder too! Mr. wiggle butt Finn wouldn’t be a canine if he wasn’t at least “trying” to get you to share your meal with him! Lol 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      Well – he’s DEFINITELY a canine, then!! 🙂 Thanks much, Kathy! 🙂

  9. Lisa A Crosby

    Love your card!! I ordered this in my PPP. Can’t wait to play with it. I love the bright, happy colors. I was pretty bummed that I didn’t get to meet you in person at Onstage but there is always next time!! As always, I love your updates and pictures of Finn. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – OnStage April is just around the corner! I’ll be going to Charlotte! Thanks much, Lisa – have fun with this set! 🙂

  10. Kate

    Meant cheery, but guess it is cherry too!

  11. Love it Mary! It is another winner! Beautiful

  12. Beautiful, bright and cheerful card! That embossing folder is so fun! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
