Stampin’ Up! North Pole Wishes & Wonder for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I decided to go with a Christmas theme and pulled out an as-yet-uninked set – the Wishes & Wonder bundle – which includes the fun North Pole Wonder Dies.  I added some “Tis the Season DSP and…a couple of berries from the Poinsettia Dies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Press On Confidence and Coffee

Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!!  Did y’all have fun ordering from the new catalog yestedray!?  It’s a darned good one – with so many cool new goodies it’s a little crazy.  How DO they keep coming up with such awesome stamp sets and papers and fun stuff?!?

I don’t know how they do it – but I’m SURE glad that they do.

And that I get a discount, cuzzzzzzz…. I NEED it!

My card today uses a new set for me – the fun Press On stamp set.  If you – or someone you know! – loves coffee, this is a stamp set you need in your tool box.  Take a look-see:

This one was built for the sketch side of the FUSION challenge this week but…I missed the deadline! 🙁

I started with some Very Vanilla card stock and I stamped the coffee cups from the Press On set in Early Espresso ink (seemed appropriate! ).  To make the “reversed” smaller mug – I stamped the image on a piece of acetate (from my old Stamp-A-Ma-Jig) then I quickly pressed the card stock on top.  When I picked it up – I had the reversed image!

I fussy cut the three cups with my Paper Snips.  I also stamped the images again on two different designs from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP – and snipped the coffee cup cozies.  These are adhered to “their” mugs with Liquid Glue.

I matted a piece of Very Vanilla on Cajun Craze for the card front, then matted a strip of Mint Macaron paper from Gilded Autumn, also on Cajun Craze.  I adhered the strip to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used Glue Dots to wrap a length of 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon around the strip.

On another piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped a sentiment from Press On in Cajun Craze and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.  I adhered it over the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

I laid out my cups on the card front – tucking the smaller cups under the sentiment.  With all the cups in place, I stamped the “steam” sentiment from Press On in Early Espresso ink.

I adhered the small cups with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the large middle cup with Dimensionals.

At that point, I decided I needed a “lid” – so I stamped the image again in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla and fussy cut just the lid.  I popped it onto the middle cup with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Press On in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla panel.  Across the bottom I adhered a Cajun Craze-matted stip of Gilded Autumn DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze 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 some Cajun Craze hearts and Early Espresso coffee beans on the front…

…and more of the Gilded Autumn DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now – Press On might have been another one of those “fly-over” sets for you – but it shouldn’t be!  It’s super cute (I LOVE the sentiment-in-steam image!!) and has some really great sentiments!

I hope you like – and will add this one to your list of gotta-get products!

Don’t forget about Double Peppermint Points – and to redeem your Bonus Days Coupons!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Online Store Update Coming 4 Aug 2020!!

Stampin’ Up! is updating the look and function of the online store!  Whoo-hoo!  The store will be updated beginning on 4 August with a new look and feel to help you better navigate it while you shop!  Here is what you need to know so that you’re all set to shop on the 4th!

The new online store will go live at 7:00 AM (MT) on 4 August.  So be aware that the online store will be offline temporarily early on 4 August as they transition to the new store.  It should be back up and running no later than 7:00 AM MT for ordering from the new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog!

A few things to know:

  1. Your account information and passwords will still work with the new site.
    • Be sure that you know your current login information so that you can log in right away on Tuesday!  You won’t be able to count on Auto-Fill, okay?!?
    • If you don’t know your login information by heart (or if you do like I do and have it saved to your browser so that you don’t have to remember it every time):
      • Log into your SU! account today (go ahead – go do it!!) and then click on “my account” and then “email/passwords” and either record the information that is shown or, if it’s not shown, update your password and then write it down.
  2. While old bookmarks and links will forward you to the new store, your browser will see it as a “new” site. If you rely on your browser to remember your login information, the first time that you log in, it will not associate the new site with that saved information.
  3. Be sure that you see my name at the top on the right when you are shopping with me to earn my rewards and benefits for ordering! 😉

If you have trouble logging in on Tuesday:

  1. Once the new store is up and running on Tuesday, if you have trouble logging in, you can click the “Forgot Password” link on the new online store’s sign-in page and follow the steps to reset your password. The password reset email will come from Adding this email address to the contacts list in your email program and/or searching for your email program’s spam settings can help you ensure that you receive the email.
  2. If you don’t see an e-mail pretty quickly – be sure to check your Junk or Spam folder – it MIGHT have gone in there!
  3. Should you run into any problems, there is a link in the password reset window to a page with additional information.
  4. If you have trouble accessing your account, Stampin’ Up! can also help you reset your password.  Just call them at 1-800-STAMPUP and they’ll be happy to help!  Unfortunately, I’m not able to assist with password changes as it’s a security issue for you. But Stampin’ Up! can definitely help you!

Hopefully this will be a seamless transition for you on 4 August!  I’m looking forward to seeing the new site design too!

Happy Shopping!

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!

  • 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 Forty-Three tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s way over TWO HUNDRED not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your Host Months – on your Host Order when you close with me!
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!

When you join the club – please plan to commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.

Don’t delay – if there’s enough interest, I’ll run multiple clubs best I can to accommodate everyone, but…there WILL be a limit on how many folks I can get in!

Stampin’ Up! In the Pines Bundle Sneak Peek Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week – we’ve been in the tropical storm pattern all week.  Muggy.  Hot.  Rain every day.

Guess how well our lavender plants are doing?

If you guessed…not so well, then…you are correct!  We’ve got as much drainage as we could manage but…the little babies are struggling with their wet feet.

They may have trench foot.  Hmm.  Maybe I need to sprinkle some Dr. Scholl’s foot powder on them? 🤔🤔🤔

Or not….

So, if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Heartwarming Hugs Tree Angle Sneak Peek

Happy happy HAWWWWMP day!!  And happy can-you-even-believe-it’s-practically Christmas day??

Yeah.  That’s not a real thing but…serious.  Can you believe the year is half over?  I mean – 2020 can just go ahead and get gone, but…wow.  It’s flying!

Now – I mentioned Christmas cuz I’m playing with a Christmas theme today with my card.  There’s a bundle in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog called The Right Triangle – and I bought it specifically so I’d have the Stitched Triangles Dies that are part of the bundle.  I NEEDED those cuz of the Tree Angle stamp set in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog.  That one really caught my eye – although it’s kind of a flyover set and one you may have thumbed right by!  I combined it with some homey-cozy paper from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP.  Take a look-see:
