Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Memories No-Stamp Cards!

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!

I’ve got a no-inky-fingers card – well, actually TWO cards! – for you today!  Yep – I used the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and some Hand-Penned DSP to create two quick and easy cards for you – neither of which needs ANY ink!  Take a look-see:

The layout is loosely based on the sketch portion of the Inspired By challenge this week.

And the no-inky-fingers is thanks to the Just Us Girls Trend Week challenge.

Both cards start with a piece of Hand-Penned DSP matted on Evening Evergreen for the card front.

Next, I selected four smaller panels from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and matted them all on Evening Evergreen.  As you can see – one is the Portrait orientation and the other is in Landscape! 😉

Using Liquid Glue – I adhered the panels to each of the card fronts as shown.

I considered adding some bling – and decided against it.  Let the pretty paper do all the work! 🙂

For the inside of each card, I simply matted a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP on Evening Evergreen and added it to the bottom of a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panels to Evening Evergreen mats and then into my corresponding Mint Macaron or Pale Papaya card bases and the cards were done!

My Basic White Medium Envelopes got one of the pretty stickers from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack on the fronts…

…and then more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flaps.

Et Voila!  Wow.  The entire Hand-Penned Suite simply does not disappoint!  From the gorgeous DSP to the oh-so-handy-and-lovely Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack – there is so much you can do to make stunning projects.  And that’s without even OPENING the Penned Flowers stamp set and Penned-Petals Dies!  And not an inky finger to be found!

I hope you like!

Openings Available in Host Clubs Starting on 1 July! 

How does it work?

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

You sign up for two consecutive 3-month terms and commit to:

  • A $50.00 minimum order each month
  • Placing your order by the 20th of each month
  • Using the Host code for each month that I send to you in an email at the beginning of each month

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   This is a great time to join a club – with the new Annual Catalog, the pending August release of the 2021 Jul-Dec Mini Catalog and the second SALE-A-BRATION fixin’ to start in August, too!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

Finn Fan Fix

When you go to Tractor Supply AND you’re a VERY good boy…sometimes Mom and Dad will get you a new toy!

So – it’s always best to carry it out of the store yourself – that’s what big boys do.  😉

We’re waiting for Dad to bring the van up – Mom said it might be too hot on the pavement for my feets!

  1. What great cards for the challenges, especially the no stamping one. You have inspired me! Finn’s new toy looks like such fun. Hopefully he’ll let you do a video with it in action 🙂 I wish more parents would think about their fur babies feet, especially in my community.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – that five second rule!! Thanks so much, Karen – maybe I’ll be able to get a video while he’s pulling on it with all his might!! 😉

  2. Such pretty cards! Love the colors in that card pack! 🙂 Definitely a big boy thing to carry your own stuff out of the store. Impatiently waiting for the coach to arrive. 😉

    Yay for new toys for Finn. He needed it! And big yay for not walking on the scorching pavement!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – people were looking at me sorta funny when I got out of the van and stuck my hand on the ground for a 5 count! It wasn’t that hot – but we still trotted to the shade! Thanks, Susan! 🙂

  5. There’s that comment box! Ha! So fun – and we’re very happy to see squares as stand-ins for those circles! Thanks for being inspired to play!
