Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Celebration Card

Well it’s here.

Monday.

Again.

But – just this week and half of next and….it’s off the races.

Erh – the Coliseum!

So – a funny thing happened on the way to the Colise….

Ooops – sorry!

Let’s do a card – and leave the stand-up to….ANYone else! 😉

I pulled out the Friend Like You Bundle – and a little Perennial Essence Vellum and new Designer Series Paper to create a birthday card.  But…it could easily be for any celebration!  Take a look-see:

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

I started with some Soft Sea Foam Subtles 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.  I took a smaller piece of So Saffron Subtles 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, matted it on So Saffron as well, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock, I stamped the grasses image from Friend Like you five times in Soft Sea Foam – then I added the cattails image.

I stamped the dragonfly image (it has two dragonflies on a single stamp) several times in stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

With the two grasses dies from the bundled Friendly Silhouettes Die set, I cut one of each design – one from Vellum card stock and the other from So Saffron vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum Card Stock.  I used Liquid Glue across the bottom of each die cut to adhere them to the card front.

I carefully added Glue Dots under various flowers and cattails to adhere the die cut more fully to the card front.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered a length of Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon and one of 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon near the bottom of the panel.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Friend Like You sentiment in Pretty Peacock, then I punched both ends of the strip with the new Delightful Tag Topper Punch.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Noble Peacock Rhinestone in Pretty Peacock and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped the grasses and cattail image from Friend Like You in Soft Sea Foam on a Whisper White panel.  Over top I added a second sentiment in Pretty Peacock.  I stamped a couple of dragonflies in stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock and added another Noble Peacock Rhinestone.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Friend Like You grasses and dragonflies on the front…

…and a little more So Saffron DSP (and a line of dragonflies – I LOVE them!) on the back!

Et Voila!  I am really loving this Friend Like You stamp set – the images and sentiments are really quite wonderful – and very versatile!  And the matching (and bundled!) Friendly Silhouettes Dies are pretty spectacular!  How gorgeous are those die cuts in vellum??!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades Update

We have reevaluated our strategy for launching Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (item 126995) after the number of difficulties demonstrators and customers experienced during the South Pacific and European launches.

First, we have decided to reduce the limit on blades from six to three. We anticipate blades to sell out quickly, but hope more demonstrators and customers will be able to order with the smaller limit.

Second, we still plan to notify demonstrators through an update with the exact date and time the blades will become orderable (which will NOT be this week, as previously indicated). For this first launch in North America, we will send an email to anyone who requested a notification about when the blades would become available. For future launches, updates will be announced to Demonstrators ahead of time.

Third, we have made several internal system adjustments to avoid the issues we faced with previous launches in the South Pacific and Europe and are hopeful those errors will not be repeated.

Finally, there are different error messages you will see if trying to add the blades to an order before they become available and after they have sold out.

  • On the day of the launch, if you try to order the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades before they are available, you will see this error message: “You may not order 1 of item 126995 because of promotion restrictions.”
  • When the blades have sold out, the message will return to the current message until the next launch: “This item has been discontinued and cannot be added to your order (126995).”

We also want to remind you we are still working on a new trimmer option and hope to have more information to share in the coming months.

A quick note from me:  Stampin’ Up! did not provide a date and time when the blades will be available to order.  So keep an eye on my blog and newsletter and I’ll post those details as soon as we have them! But I wanted to post this update since many of you have been asking about the Trimmer Blades.

Stampin’ Up! Scripty Silhouette Scenes!

Good morning – it’s….Friday!!  Whoo-hoooo!!!!  I am ready for a weekend, y’all – how’s about you??

My card today is one that reminds me of those old kids toys – I think they were…Lite’N’Brites?  Some such.  Mine uses the new Silhouette Scenes stamp set and bundled Sweet Silhouettes die set.  Plus some See a Silhouette DSP and…the awesome and (for me) long-awaited Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see!

I started by using the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate to emboss a Basic Black panel in the new Scripty 3D folder.  That new plate works really well, y’all! 🙂

Next – with the large and lovely die in the Sweet Silhouettes Dies, I cut a tree branch from one of the beautiful designs in the See A Silhouette DSP.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the embossed panel – then trimmed the excess with my Paper Snips.

I used Liquid Glue to double mat the panel – first on Poppy Parade and then on Crushed Curry.

For the sentiment, I cut a 2″ wide strip of Crushed Curry card stock and punched the top with the new Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  Then I stamped a sentiment from Silhouette Scenes in Poppy Parade.  Finally – I cut the tag down to its final length of 2″ – and rounded the corners with my Detailed Trio Punch.

I added some faux stitches with my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker – and I adhered a couple more “branches” that I cut with the Sweet Silhouettes dies from the same See A Silhouette paper I started with.  Finally, I used a Glue Dot to add a small bow from the Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  I popped the completed tag onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a dark silhouette in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and a sentiment in Poppy Parade to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Poppy Parade and Crushed Curry mats and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Silhouette Scenes image in Tuxedo Black on the front…

…and more See A Silhouette DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – I am a sucker for a sweet Silhouette Scene – aren’t you??  And when these gorgeous die cuts and images are paired with the stunningly pretty See A Silhouette DSP….well.  The results are wunnermus!!  And the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder!  Thank goodness and THANK YOU, STAMPIN’ UP!!!  I hope you like!

On Thursday, Wayne was out working and I needed to run to the Post Office.  I decided to leave the Man out.

As in – OUT of the kennel.  Loose in the house.  Free to wander at will.

When I left, I told him to guard the house and take care of Katy.

Upon my return…it appeared he’d kept us safe!

Uhhm..nooooo he is NOT that tall!  That’s a boing-ing guard-Aussie trying to see thru the window to determine Friend or Foe!

The window of the incredibly dirty garage door! 🙁

Whew!  Glad it’s you, Mom!!

Stampin’ Up! Smooth Sailing Home For You!

Well.  Say it with me, now!  Happy Happy (I’m pointing the mic out at YOU!!!)…HHAWWWMP DAY!!!

I’ve got a simple little card (well – actually it’s a bit BIGger than usual!) for you today – using the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack and the Sailing Home bundle.  Take a look-see:

For the color scheme, I played along with the cool Just Us Girls challenge this week.

Heck – I even used Blues as my color! 🙂

I started with one of the cool laser-die-cut panels in the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack and used Liquid Glue around the edge to adhere it to a Whisper White cardstock panel for the card front.

I wrapped a length of new 3/8″ Denim Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used another – smaller – panel from the card pack and cut it down a little more.  Then I adhered a same-size piece of Night of Navy to the card front with Liquid Glue.  I popped the Memories & More card over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the Sailing Home stamp set, is stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White – then I cut it with the little banner die in the Smooth Sailing Die set.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the sail boat panel.

I used a couple more dies to cut a Night of Navy wheel and a Balmy Blue rope.  I adhered them next to the card with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped a Sail Away Trinket (the anchor) on with a Glue Dot.

I tied a bow from the Denim Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  And that finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Sailing Home sentiment in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel.  I placed both sailboat stamps on an acrylic block, inked them in Balmy Blue and stamped them once on scrap paper.  Without re-inking, I stamped them over top of the sentiment.

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

My Whisper White Large Memories & More Envelope got full-strength Balmy Blue sailboats on the front…

…and I added some Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Come Sail Away suite remains one of my favorite new products from the new catalog – how about you??  I just love the coordinating Sailing Home stamp set and bundled Smooth Sailing Dies and the perfect Come Sail Away DSP.  And the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack?  Fug-et-aboutit!  I hope you like!

“A Morning in the Life of a Working Aussie.”

                                                                By Finn.

First – we clean the barn and spread the manure.  I help my Mom get around the place, making sure she doesn’t get losed.  Or accosted by a squirrel.  Or one of those danged BUGS!

Then, we stop to make sure the ponies have clean, fresh water, cuz it’s really hot right now and they like a good drink.

So do I!

Finally, once all our morning chores are done, we come back in the house.

The air conditioning feels really good – and it always makes me kind of sleepy.

So – I sleep!

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Essence Bird Ballad Fun Fold

Happy Tuesday!  The week is clicking by!  Soon it’ll be Hawwmp Day and we’ll be on the downhill slide to the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!

My card today is…another fun fold.  In fact, it’s the same fold as yesterday – sorry! – cuz I needed another gift card for a co-worker leaving the program.  And – I wanted to do something flower-dy and pretty for her.  So…I used the same fold on the inside, but…pulled in the Floral Essence stamp set, plus some gorgeous painterly Perennial Essence DSP and a Bird Ballad Laser Cut Note card – all available on 4 June!  Take a look-see:

Look at that gorgeous die cut card front – that’s ALL from the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards and Tin set – which is part of the new Bird Ballad product suite.

For the card front layout, I used the sketch challenge from CAS(E) This Sketch this week.

I started by creating a diagonal mat from So Saffron and a Very Vanilla “card front”.  On that Very Vanilla piece, I stamped a sentiment from Floral Essence in Blackberry Bliss ink.  Then I stamped a couple of flowers from the same set in So Saffron, adding Crushed Curry centers (there are a couple of different “center” images to choose from in the set).  I also stamped some pretty leaves in Mossy Meadow – and colored them with my Light and Dark Old Olive and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Vanilla panel to the So Saffron mat.

To create my card base, I used the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Card and, using Liquid Glue, adhered a Petal Pink piece of Perennial Essence DSP to the back of the laser-cut front of the card base.  Then I adhered my matted diagonal to the front.

Using the flower stamp from Perennial Essence, I stamped it three times in Petal Pink on Petal Pink card stock and three times on the Petal Pink Vellum from the Perennial Essence 12″ x 12″ Vellum Card Stock pack.

When everything was dry (it takes a minute on the Vellum!), I punched all the flowers with the new Perennial Flower Punch (which will be available on 4 Jun, bundled with the Perennial Essence stamp set).  I lightly curled the petals and glued a card stock flower to a vellum flower to create three full flowers.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped some more leaves in Mossy Meadow and colored them with the Blends.  Then I fussy cut them.  

Using Liquid Glue, I added the leaves and flowers in an ever-so-artistic manner, added a few fuzzy Perennial Essence Flower Centers (4 Jun!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I re-created the fun pop-up gift card holder just like I did yesterday, using Perennial Essence DSP and sentiments/images from the Perennial Essence stamp set.

You can see the basics in my video here.

For this one, though, I created the actual gift card envelope from some Perennial Essence DSP – and I cut my little “window” with the Starburst Punch.

 

I added the sentiments in Blackberry Bliss and the flowers and leaves in So Saffron,  Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow.

Once again, I left the lower Very Vanilla panel blank so all my co-workers and I could sign it!

The envelope, which is part of the Bird Banner Laser-Cut Cards and Tin set, got more of the Perennial Essence flowers on the front…

…and I left the flap alone – they already come with that beautiful scalloped edge!

Et Voila!  I just love this fold – I promise, though, last one!  But isn’t it gorgeous with the Perennial Essence suite?  And those Bird Balllad Laser-Cut Cards – instant BAM!!  I hope you like – and that you’ll make some of these fun gift card holders.  And…are adding this Suite to your wish list!

Stampin’ UP! Mosaic Mood Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Guess what DAY IT IS?!?  Yep!  You know it to be THAT DAY!

I’ve got a sneak peek for you today – we got the new Daisy Lane stamp set AND a pack of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP as a little part of our “swag” at OnStage last weekend – as well as the new Timeless Label Punch (all of these will be available to customers on 4 Jun 19!).  So – since I’d been so excited to get these little goodies, I decided to share a project I made with them!  Take a look-see:

I took a little inspiration for some of the elements on the card from the samples in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  And – I let the theme from this week’s Just Us Girls Challenge give me a hand, too!

Before we get too far – check the Daisy Lane stamp set (coming on 4 Jun).  This one coordinates with the Daisy Punch (which you may already have – if you don’t, you can pick it up right now and be ready!) and…there’s a new MEDIUM DAISY PUNCH coming in the catalog!!  Whoo-hooo!

And check out this gorgeous Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP!  It’s got mosaic tile images with shiny accents and I love it already!

Okay – so let’s make a card!

I started with some Very Vanilla, matted on Soft Suede for the card front.  On top of that, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a square of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP (4 Jun availability).

For the art panel, I first used my Stamparatus to stamp a couple of leaves and stems from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel.  I also inked the smallest daisy image from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry, stamped it off once, and added it a couple of times around the leaves.

Then I matted the panel on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped three large daisies and three medium daisies from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry.  I punched the large ones with the Daisy Punch – and fussy cut the smaller ones.  In about a month, I’ll use the Medium Daisy Punch – and YOU SHOULD, TOO! 🙂

I built my flowers by adhering them together with a Stampin’ Dimensional – either regular size or mini.  Then I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the middle of each flower.

The sentiment, also from Daisy Lane, is stamped in Mint Macaron on Very Vanilla and cut out with the new Timeless Label Punch (4 Jun).  I added some small Daisy Lane daisies over top in stamped-off-once Crushed Curry.  Then I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the label.

I created a “pot” with a strip of Soft Suede (for the top “rim”) and an angled piece that I also embossed in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (carrying over!).  I adhered the pot to the panel with Liquid Glue and popped the “rim” on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked daisies and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the sentiment.  Then I added a Mint Macaron bow from Nature’s Twine and a final Gold Faceted Gem.  Then I fussy cut a few leaves from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and stuck them in here and there with Liquid Glue to finish the card front.  Check that adorable bee!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel – then I added a stamped-off-once Crushed Curry daisy over top.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more daisies on the front – I stamped the ones on the right side twice without re-inking, and the one on the left is stamped-off-once…

…and I added a little more Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voial!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!!  How awesome is this stamp set, y’all!??  And the beautiful Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP?  I mean seriously!  And the fact that we’re getting a new Medium Daisy Punch (and the current Daisy Punch AND Daisy Delight stamp sets are carrying over!!) means we’re going to have SO many options for creating gorgeous florals on our projects!  Get the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch NOW and then add these new goodies to your wish list!

Hope you like!

The Annual Catalog Retiring Products lists shows the updated list with the current stamp sets that will be carrying over to the new catalog (just in cling-mount rather than clear-mount or wood-mount) highlighted in gray.

Here is the updated lists – the Occasions Catalog list hasn’t changed – just the list for the Annual Catalog! 🙂

2019 Occasions Catalog Retiring Products

UPDATED 2018-2019 Annual Catalog Retiring Products

Or…click these links to go to my Online Store for the most up-to-date information!

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

There are stamp sets that are currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – but are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog –  will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).  If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Click here to see the list of stamp sets that ARE carrying over as Cling sets. 🙂

Happy Shopping!

Stampin’ Up! Seashells By The Bay

Good morning!  Welcome back to the work week.

And – the beginning of the end of Sale-A-Bration.  Can you even believe that?!?  If you don’t have all your goodies yet – be sure to snap them up this week – and get DOUBLE Peppermints from me at the same time.  Sort of a win-win, don’t you think?? 🙂

My By The Bay card today is one I wasn’t sure was ever going to do how I wanted it to do.  Especially after I did the inner liner and realized I’d made it in the portrait orientation.  Which was perfectly acceptable, except my card was in landscape, so…that pretty much wasn’t going to cut it!  But – I finally got it done – and I think it turned out pretty much how I thought it would.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dear Doily Video Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  It’s the weekend!  And it is – apparently! – a weekend of change!

So – I was SUPPOSED to be at work today but…found out yesterday that it’s going to be too windy to do our event today.  I sure didn’t think wind was going to be a thing for this test, but…whatever!  We’ve moved the whole day to tomorrow.  Which has it’s own issues – not least of which is that I’ll not be able to do our Sunday night video.

Well – not on SUNDAY, at least!  I really don’t want to miss my time with you guys, so we’re going to try to get together tonight!  Or – more accurately, I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 7pm Eastern (please note it’s a DAY early AND an HOUR early!!) – and hoping that you can all join me!

We’ll be making a fun little card using the Dear Doily stamp set.  Take a sneaky peek!
