Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Santa Paws is Coming!

Well – Happy Happy HAWWWWMP DAY!!!  Are you having fun with the new catalog and earning lots of free stuff??  Hard not to party just a little, right?  So many cool goodies to be had!

So yesterday I gave you a little peek at the card I have for you today – it features the new Sweet Little Stockings Bundle and Sweet Stockings DSP and…a whole bunch of coolness from the Sweet Stockings Suite.  Take a look-see:


I started with some really sweet DSP from the Sweet Stockings DSP that I matted on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.  The curved piece is a piece of Basic White that I cut with a die in the Basic Borders die set.

Using the little pine boughs stamp in the Sweet Little Stockings set, I stamped a garland around the cut circle edge, using Evening Evergreen and Old Olive inks.

 

I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and popped the cut panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On Basic White, I stamped the cat and dog images from Sweet Little Stockings in Smoky Slate and Cinnamon Cider, respectively.  Then I colored them with the light Stampin’ Blends in the same Smoky Slate and Cinnamon Cider – and a little Light Flirty Flamingo Blend for the kittie’s ears. 🙂

 

I also stamped a couple of Cherry Cobbler peppermint canes and a Tuxedo Black Memento Ink gift.  I colored the gift with the Light Cherry Cobbler, Dark Pool Party and Light Evening Evergreen Blends.  Then, I cut them all out using the dies in the Stockings Die set – and also cut three stockings from a piece of the Sweet Stockings DSP.  I LOVE that I can do that with this set! 🙂

I adhered the “end” stockings with Liquid Glue and popped the dog and cat on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I did the opposite on the middle stocking – popping IT on with Dimensionals and adding the gift and canes with Liquid Glue.

I decided a santa hat was in order – so I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler on Basic White and colored it with the Light Cherry Cobbler Blend, then cut it with its die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I cut some stars, holly and holly berries – using the Stockings Die – from some Bumble Bee, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Jolly Felt – and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  This Jolly Felt is COOL, y’all – it’s thin enough to cut well and it doesn’t add a lot of weight or bulk to your card!.

I nestled some Matte Decorative Dots in Cherry Cobbler and Bumble Bee in amongst the pine garland and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Sweet Little Stockings in Cherry Cobbler on Basic White.  Then I stamped two Tuxedo Black gifts at the bottom and colored them with the Pool Party, Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler Blends.  A final Bumble Bee dot from the Matte Decorative Dots finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Sweet Little Stockings gifts on the front…

…and a little more Sweet Stockings DSP on the envelope flap.  And..since I got a little jiggy with my Stampin’ Blends on the front – added another gift on the back! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Et Voila!!  How cute cute CUTE is this Suite?!?  I love all the images and sentiments in the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set – and being able to cut them out with the Stockings Dies (not to mention cutting DSP stockings!!) is awesome.  The coordinating Sweet Stockings DSP is so pretty – I love the colors and designs very much!

If you want to snag this Suite, you could ALWAYS pick up my Special Bundle #6 – All About the Fauna!  You’ll get the whole Suite PLUS a lot of other goodies PLUS a bunch of free Sale-a-Bration items – all while saving some cashola!  Get all the deets at my Jul – Dec 2021 Special Bundles Page.  😉

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest In Your Words Sneak Peek Sympathy Card

Good morning and happy Monday!  We’re just T-1 Day until the launch of the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog and the Aug-Sep 2021 Sale-a-Bration.  Whoo-hoo!!

One of the first things that was on MY list to pre-order was the Nature’s Harvest bundle (and I am SORT of assuming its on YOUR list of first-things-to-grab tomorrow, too!).  I used it here – along with a Sale-A-Bration Host-Exclusive set called In Your Words.  And…I pulled the wonderful Peaceful Moments set (in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog) off the shelf, too.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake that I placed in my Stamparatus.  Using the two floral images from Nature’s Harvest, I stamped them a couple of times on the panel in Early Espresso Ink.  Then I cut them into their individual panels.

I used the splatter image in Nature’s Harvest – in stamped off TWICE (that means to ink – stamp on scrap paper – stamp again on scrap paper – stamp on your cardstock) Evening Evergreen to stamp the corners of each of the small panels.

Using an Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Write Marker, I added faux stitches around each panel, then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to an Evening Evergreen mat.

I used the Harvest Dies to cut an Early Espresso “branch”, an Evening Evergreen “wildflower” and a bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock “grasses”.

Arranging the die cuts on the card front – I adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I tied a small bow from the Crumb Cake baker’s twine in the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

My sentiment, from Peaceful Moments, is stamped in Evening Evergreen on Crumb Cake and cut with a Tasteful Labels die, then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few bronze Brushed-Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a really good sentiment – one of many! – from the new In Your Words stamp set – in Evening Evergreen on Crumb Cake.  I added the “splotches” in the corners – in stamped-off-twice Evening Evergreen and the small floral from Nature’s Harvest in stamped-off-twice Early Espresso over the sentiment itself.  I adhered another of the Brushed-Metallic dots and added the Evening Evergreen faux stitches, too! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and a Crumb Cake mat, then into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the stamped-off-twice Evening Evergreen splotches and full strength Early Espresso floral on the front…

…and the Nature’s Harvest floral on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  As I mentioned – this Nature’s Harvest bundle – well, the whole Suite, really! – was #1 on my list to get from the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini and you’ll be able to do the same tomorrow!  In Your Words is too cool – during Sale-A-Bration, you’ll be able to get it for FREE with a $300 (before shipping & tax) individual order or as part of a workshop (I can help you do that easy-peasy, just ask me how!)!!  I just LOVE the sentiments – take a gander at it down below in my Special Bundles section – yep, THOSE can earn that set (and a bunch of SAB goodies) for you, too!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to re-create this card, the products and card cuts you’ll need are all listed down below!

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Well – good morning and welcome to AUGUST!  It’s like a million degrees here – and the humidity is the same.  So…I suppose that means the stores will be putting up Christmas decorations any day now! 😉

Not really.  But August DOES bring a few things that you need to have on your radar!

  • My Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog Shares ordering closes TONIGHT!!
  • The big DSP Sale (15% off selected paper packs) ends tomorrow, 2 Aug.
  • The Stamp-N-Storage Magnetic Card sale also ends tomorrow!
  • The Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog goes live on 3 Aug – that’s day after tomorrow!!!  WHOO-HOO!
  • The Aug – Sep 2021 Sale-a-Bration ALSO goes live day after tomorrow – and there are some amazeballs free goodies for you to pick up!!
  • I’ll be ordering Special Bundles for those of you who’ve signed up – if you have NOT….this would be a good time!!

Whew – that’s a LOT in just a few days!!  What an exciting week!!

Now – onwards!  If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis on YouTube!

The first time I saw the Whimsy & Wonder DSP – from the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog – I fell in love.

And…I totally shouldn’t have!  It’s really not in my usual color wheelhouse AT ALL!  But…love it I do indeed!  And the coordinating Whimsical Trees stamp set, with the bundled Christmas Tree Die set, is a wonderful accompaniment!   I used it ALL on this card!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card is inspired by the sketch over at the Global Design Project!

I started by adhering a piece of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP to a Polished Pink mat for the card front.

Then I cut a piece of Basic White and placed it in my Stamparatus.

Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – and the “hinge step” technique with the Stamparatus (one of its BIG bonus features!!), I stamped the ornaments image from Whimsical Trees three times.

I repositioned the stamp and, again by hinge-stepping, stamped the image two more times, between the original images.

I colored the ornaments using my Light & Dark Polished Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends, Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and a Polished Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I matted the panel on Polished Pink and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the sweet little holly image in Tuxedo Black twice on Basic White – colored it with my Blends and cut it with the die from the Christmas Trees Die set.

I popped the holly die cuts onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a white Baker’s Twine bow – from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack – around a doubled-over length of new Blushing Bride 3/8″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon (coming in the new catalog on 3 Aug).  Then I used Stampin’ Seal+ to adhere the ribbon to the card front.

The sentiment, from Whimsical Trees, is stamped on Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP in Polished Pink and cut with the smallest narrow die in the Stitched Rectangles Die set.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment on just above the ribbon.

I added a Mint Macaron Genial Gem to the sentiment banner and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Whimsical Trees sentiment in Polished Pink on Basic White and added the holly image next to it!  Another Genial Gem finished it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Polished Pink mat and into my Blushing Bride card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Whimsical Trees holly on the front…

…and more of the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So?  Are you as in love with this suite as I am?  The colors in the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP just make me smile! 🙂  And the stylized images and sweet sentiments in Whimsical Trees are just wonderful – perfectly cut and complemented by the bundled Christmas Trees dies!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to re-create this card, the products and card cuts you’ll need are all listed down below!  And – not for nuthin – this bundle and DSP and grosgrain ribbon are part of my Special Bundle #3 – Boughs, Cones & Trees, Oh My!  Get this – and a lot more! – PLUS free Sale-A-Bration goodies – with a savings of 10-15% off retail!  Check it out and get signed up right quick so we can get it on the way to you on Tuesday! 🙂

One quick note:  During this round of Sale-A-Bration, some products will only be available while supplies last. This means that once they’re gone, they’re gone for good! The Sale-A-Bration products with limited supply include:

  • 156629 Be Dazzling 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Specialty Paper
  • 156600 Sheep Dies
  • 156618 Summer Shadows Dies

All other Sale-A-Bration products will be available throughout the promotion. High demand can send these products into backorder and delay shipping, but the supply will not run out; all orders placed will be honored.  So if any of those items are on your “must get” list, be sure to add them to your first order!

Finally – just some good news from Stampin’ Up!  To help us redeem all our free goodies – including picking up that amazing Host Stamp Set – they’re making some upgrades to the Online Store that will go into effect on 3 Aug when SAB goes live.

I’ve created a PDF with the steps – including some pictures – to help you see how it’s going to work.  Here’s some salient points:

  • During the August to September Sale-a-bration event, the earned Sale-A-Bration items will be selected during the checkout process.

NEW LOWER PRICES!!

 

There’s not a lot left but…it’s time for it ALL to go!

Be sure to check out my Shop with retired products from the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  

I’ve lowered the prices on nearly everything – time to empty the shelves, y’all!

Prices are roughly half-off from their original retail prices – so it’s a pretty good deal all the way around!

Also, please know that almost all of these items have been used, but they’re in very good condition.  If you have any specific questions about the condition of an item, please ask. I’m happy to provide more information or photos if needed.  All stamp sets are cling/clear mount or photopolymer.

  • Most of the items are gently used. Packs of Designer Series Paper are “full” packs.
  • Shipping is $7 per order no matter how much you purchase!
  • I am only able to ship to addresses in the US (or to military APO addresses) and USPS tracking will be included!

Thanks so much for checking out my sale and helping me to make room for NEW goodies!

You guys should have received your new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini catalogs in the mail by now – if you haven’t (and think you SHOULD have!) give me shout!  Hopefully you’ve had a chance to take a gander thru it (it’s pretty amazing, isn’t it??) – and if you have… I know you have a long list of things you really need to have!

So – to help you gather up those goodies and maybe save a little green, I’ve gathered up some goodies from the new Suites (and beyond!) that coordinate with each other and will get you well on the way to making great cards and projects!  When you order them, you’ll save around 10-15% off ordering everything yourself!  And every Special Bundle includes a FREE GIFT! 🙂
