Stampin’ Up! A Million Thanks Kit – And Some Blog Candy!

Happy Happy Hawwmmp Day!! Hope your week is going well!

I might have mentioned a new kit the other day – here?  On my Newsletter?  Can’t remember! 🤷‍♀️  But – it’s called the A Million Thanks Kit and it.  Is.  Awesome!  I may or may not have ordered THREE of them!!  😳😳😳

So – last night I opened up a box and…about 45 minutes later….

Seriously – how pretty are those cards?!?

This is an All-Inclusive kit so…you get everything you need to make these!

I love the color palette – Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Evening Evergreen, Mossy Meadow, Pale Papaya, and Pear Pizzazz.  The colors are quiet and elegant – and I’ll always love Evening Evergreen combined with Blushing Bride!

I really love the Pear Pizzazz die cut behind the printed heart on this one – and can you see that all the flowers are popped up on Dimensionals?  Yes – there are enough Dimensionals on this card to make my heart SING!! 🙂

The exclusive stamp set has perfect sentiments – with really lovely fonts!! – and a couple of little flowers that I used to spice up the inside of the cards!

Note: I added the sentiment in Evening Evergreen – which is the ink spot you’ll get in the kit.  I added the little flowers with my Blushing Bride and Pale Papaya ink pads! 🙂

The two other cards are equally pretty and easy to put together.

Check this one in Blushing Bride – it has pretty (and subtly shiny!) embossing and I love the “ribbon” die cut, don’t you??

The black dot embellishments included in the kit are a perfect little touch – not to much, not too little, juuuuust right!

The final card is all about the Mossy Meadow – with shiny embossed “leaves” and …lemon and lime die cuts!

And – Stampin’ Up! made the envelopes with a coordinating lining…

…but – I added the little flowers to the fronts.  Cuz…it’s me! 😉

So – I HOPE you’ll jump over and get you a kit – or two! – and enjoy making these pretty cards like I did.  Or…give a few away as gifts – they’re a great way to let folks get started with the fun of creating cards!!

Or…you MIGHT enter and WIN a kit!!

The VERY BEST DEAL – and BEST way to save some money on all those Stampin’ Up! goodies that you want is to join the team – ESPECIALLY right now!  But….if you really don’t want to give that a try , then….my Online Host Club might be a perfect solution for you!  It’ll let you build up your Stampin’ Up! tool chest a little at a time – AND receive host benefits – AND not have to do any additional work!

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 “term”, 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 around SIXTY-FIVE tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY 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 Two Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Parties – 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)!  That’s TWO free stamp sets in six months!
  • 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.   Like I said above, this is a great time to join a club – with the Annual Catalog already live AND the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog AND the Jul – Aug 2022 Sale-A-Bration getting ready to kick off in July!

Don’t delay – I’ll try to accommodate as many folks as are interested but…there ARE limited spaces available!

And – if you and two friends would like to have your own club together – what a fun way to build up ALL your tools at once! – then let me know and I’ll get you all hooked up!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at!

Finn Fan Fix

Finn – duh! – went with us!

While Wayne toted boxes in – I stood guard at the back of the van.

Finn did inventory…

Make sure you get them ALL, Mom!  Your peeps are WANTING their goodies that WE cut and packed!

  1. Love this kit so much! Such pretty card designs! And yeah, we all know how important the inventory control guy is…good thing for the supervisors. 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      Right – he’s the LYNCHPIN of the operation! Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  2. MeMe

    So I told myself I wasn’t getting into all the dies…but ALL THE DIES! So many good ones! All the rectangles! Stylish Shapes! And, (no offense meant, but I’m not really loving the manly set, but the He’s All That dies are very next looking…I am especially interested in the little argyle looking pieces. Those would be great accents!

  3. Pam Berrisford

    I love all the cards from the kit !!!! I follow you and can’t wait till you post. You’re an inspiration for me to make more cards. Of course I always have to see what Finn is up to.
    My favorite set is Happiness Abounds. I love the florals and especially the font for the sentiments. Do not have the set yet.

  4. Debbie Lindauer

    I love the He’s all that suite. So far only ordered the dsp because it goes so well with so many stamps sets I have. Love it.

  5. My new stampers love the kits! Quick and easy. I’ll have to look for this one

  6. Beth Kist

    My new most favorite thing is the new catalog is the Happiness Abounds Suite! I have not ordered it yet but will in the very near future. The flower stamps and DSP are just beautiful!

  7. Phyllis W.

    Hello Mary, I like the Sweet Songbird bundle. Those cute little birds make me smile. It’s not in my possession yet, but hopefully soon. Thanks for the chance to win a card kit.

  8. Karen

    The Sequins Die. Can’t wait to see samples of that used on cards etc.

  9. Oh, my gosh, that face! He is so precious!! You and Wayne are quite a team when it comes to shares. Are you going to make alternative cards with the kit? I didn’t order it but I am mulling it over. The one thing I wish I had ordered is the Alphabest Bundle. Maybe it’ll pop up in a Quarterly meeting 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      I probably won’t do anything differently – I really like them just the way they are! You NEED this kit, Karen! 🙂 Thanks! 🙂

  10. Tricia D

    I’m wanting the cracker treat dies. I haven’t ordered them yet but they are I at the top of my list!

  11. Susan Wormley

    I am soooo excited about the magnetic plate for the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. It is on its way and should arrive tomorrow!

  12. Kevin Boyer

    I am most excited to create with the new in colors and they just arrived yesterday! Yay! Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. Sue Floyd

    Hi Mary!
    I’m so excited about the new annual catalog!
    My fave punch bundle-Sweet songbirds
    My fave EF- fern
    My fave die bundle- wow! There’s too many! I’m enjoying happiness abounds & the Sun Prints now.
    Great blog candy!

  14. Carole Lovill

    I hope I’m on the right post…..🤞🤞🤞 my favorite thing in the net catalog that I NEED and must HAVE is the weeping willow tree. I LOVE that stamp set!

    • Carole Lovill

      And the olive branch set, almost forgot that one! Lol

  15. Carlyn Lamb

    Wow…the cards you made from the kit look great! Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. Brooke Berger

    Finn is helping you guard. Or, alternatively, he’s making sure you don’t leave.

  17. Pat C.

    I have so many things on my wish list, but the first thing I ordered was the Potted Geraniums bundle. It should be here tomorrow!

  18. Kathy Beemer

    First on my wishlist is the Sweet Songbirds bundle. Ordered!

  19. Patty S. of Ohio

    Wow looks like a fun kit! I have a short list started so far but first on my list are the new “In Colors” cardstock, inks and pens. No order placed yet, but soon!

  20. JRGH

    I think the item I am looking forward to getting the most right now is the new magnetic plate. I miss the old one and like everyone one else have trouble with smaller dies staying in place.

  21. Susan K

    These are cute cards and I love the fonts in that stamp set. Nice to get closeup looks at them! TFS. (A different kind of cute from the Cup of Tea Bundle—my favorite set so far!). Finn is such a good helper, making sure you get them all mailed! He does seem to be wondering why he can’t help carry them in after he helped in all other ways! 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      Exactly – like…he did all the work but those people in the PO thought his DAD did it! 🙁 Thanks, Susan! 🙂

  22. Marsha Freemon

    Mary, Love all the beautiful cards you made with the Million Thanks kit! Such a darling kit! It’s wonderful the kit includes all you need to make the cards, always a good thing.

    Wanted to Thank you for my PAPER SHARES!!!! Had so much fun spending a precious hour looking at the huge array of goodness!! The punchouts are so cute and I love your choices for me.. Perfect and very generous! Thank you again!

    Well, gotta go…The Million Thanks kit is calling my name.

    TTFN, Marsha

    • stampsnlingers

      So glad that the shares made you so happy – it really is a great group of papers! Thanks, Marsha! 🙂

  23. Tricia D

    I have a huge list of things I’d like but I’m looking forward to getting the cracker dies: I like to make quick treat holders all year round.

  24. Not big on kits, but might just have to get this one. Pretty cards, and you can’t have too many thank you cards. My favorite in the new catty is the Sun Prints Suite. Gorgeous!

  25. Judi H

    Great job on the Million Thanks cards. It might sound basic and nerdy (that’s me!) but I am most excited about the Limited Edition stamp set. I have 2 personalized SU stamps from back when they used to do that 😉 but they are almost worn to the nub. It will be great to mark the back of my cards with these.

  26. Joyce Cinco

    I’ve been wanting bakers twine for a while. Finally ordered it and am awaiting it’s delivery. Mary makes so many pretty cards using it, I wanted it!

  27. Kim

    I ordered some of the new ink pads and am loving Sweet Sorbet! I’ve stamped with it and water colored with it. It’s a beautiful color!

  28. Tricia

    The just ordered the “He’s The Man” suite and I can’t wait to get it! I have several male birthdays coming up and it looks like the cards will be a cinch to make using these products! Thanks for being so generous, Mary!

  29. Karen Sturdivant

    The card kits are really a great value and this one looks like a really good one. All the new in colors are great too. Love Finn.
