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 noreply@info.stampinup.com. 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!

I’ve got an Online Host Club starting right now with openings!  Hurry and let me know if you’d like a spot – we’ll get ‘er going in time for the release of the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog!

Here’s the deets:

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

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!

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 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)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term! (which will include the new 2021 Jan – Jun Mini, Sale-A-Bration and the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog Kick-off!!)

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!

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


If you need any stamping supplies, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator. Just click on the Order Stampin’ Up! Online Now button on the right side of the screen to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine Reveal

Hey y’all!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope you’re having a great week. Had a good day yesterday for my birthday.  We had Popeyes for lunch – did a little shopping – and got our first of the two-shot Shingles vaccine – yes, WE know how to celebrate a birthday, for sure!! LOL!!

I really want to thank all of you for the wonderful birthday wishes I got all day – in the mailbox – in the InBox – on Facebook.  I appreciate each and every one of you very much!!  I’ve hijacked Finn’s spot today and tomorrow – cuz the cards I’ve received are wonderful and I want to share them with y’all! 🙂

My bright yellow Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin Kit arrived the other day and I thought I’d put it together lickety split – cuz…it really looked like a great kit!

As soon as I opened the box – I knew I was right – it IS a great kit!

I found the sweet exclusive Box of Sunshine stamp set and a Basic Black Ink Spot…

…and all the pieces and parts to make eight cards – decorate the box for sending/gifting – AND leave me with plenty of leftover elements to use to create more cards!

The eight cards went together really quickly – some stamping – a little sticker-sticking and some dimensionalizing and…

How sweet are those cards?

And – in the spirit of no-nekkid-envelopes….SU! pre-printed them for us with pretty gold-foil accents!

So pretty and fun!

I decorated my box – and will pick one of the four card-designs to include when I mail it out!

Box of Sunshine, indeed!

So – in case you’re wondering – here’s Sara with a quick video on how it all goes together!

Cool, right?

Well – I’ll tell you what – the July Paper Pumpkin looks to be very cool, too!  Check it out!

Celebrate the magic of summer nights with the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin Kit!  In this exclusive fun-filled kit, you’ll unbox enough supplies to create nine postcard-style cards, coordinating envelopes, and die-cut tealight bags. What’s even more spectacular about July’s kit is the ADD-ON you can purchase along with it!

The Summer Nights Add-On includes 24 card bases and envelopes in coordinating Summer Nights designs.  This add-on is perfect for helping you expand the Summer Nights creative experience beyond the Paper Pumpkin kit.  Between the add-on and the leftover supplies from your Summer Nights kit, you’ll be crafting a summer night worth celebrating all month long!

The Deets:

Summer Nights Kit

Kit contains enough supplies to create nine postcards and coordinating envelopes, as well as nine die-cut tealight bags.

  • Card size: 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Envelope size: 4-1/2” x 5-3/4”
  • Coordinating Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy
  • The Paper Pumpkin kit does not require the add-on to create completed projects.

Summer Nights Add-On

Stampin-Up-July-Paper-Pumpkin-Kit-Add-On-Stamps-N-Lingers

Contains 24 pre-printed card bases and coordinating envelopes.

  • Card size: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Envelope size: 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″
  • The Summer Nights Add-On is not required to complete the Paper Pumpkin kit projects.

You’ll be able to purchase the Add-On starting 1 July, while supplies last! Item 154973 – $10

Note: During demonstrator product testing, SU! learned that the Summer Nights Add-On could make at least 20 additional cards when combined with the leftover pieces from the Summer Nights kit.  Whoo-hoo!!

Okay – they had me at “tealight bags”!! – and I bet lots of folks are going to be excited for those, too.  Which means…this one could sell out in a hurry!  So…if you’re already a Paper Pumpkin subscriber – don’t suspend or skip for this month!  If not, but you’d like to sign up, there are two ways!

You can sign up for a subscription where you’re billed monthly for your kit – click here to get started.  

OR…

…you can do a Prepaid Subscription!

Choose Your Prepaid Subscription Now!

Just a note!  To get the July Summer Nights kit – you MUST be signed up/active by the 10th of July.  If you sign up on the 11th of July…you’ll get the AUGUST kit!  Copy??

Here’s a printable with all the details1

So – if you’ve got the June kit – get it out and start assembling – you’ll love the results.  And…be sure you’re perfectly positioned to get the July kit.  Did I mention TEALIGHT BAGS?!?

Finn Fan Fix


Finn agreed to let me use “his” space for a couple of days so you could take a look at the cards I got from teammates, customers and fellow demonstrators – all of whom are ALSO my friends! I am lucky, indeed! 🙂

These two fun-fold beauts are from Rosie Kean – one of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew (CNCK) Team!

My Upline (aka – the reason I’m in SU! at all!!) Amy Koenders – sent this gorgeous Birds & More card!

Faith Simpson – a customer and also a fellow Demonstrator – created this wonderful Grace’s Garden card!

 

This sweet card came from a friend I met on my last business trip before I retired – Beth Kist invited me to dinner and some card making! 🙂

 

 

Karen Finkle – a long-time CNCK-er, sent this pretty card!

Another CNCK team member, Shirley Gentry, who lives in GA, sent this poppy-strewn beauty.

Final card for today – my friend Karen Ksenzakovic – my Amy’s Inkin’ Krew teammate, sent a little tropical garden my way!

Come back tomorrow to see the rest of the cards I’ve gotten this past week!  Every day has brought some more happy mail!  Whoo-hoo!!

He knows that EVERYone likes (no…LOVES!!) FREE SHIPPING!

So…that’s the deal-y-o!!

We’re offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders of $100 (before shipping and tax) or greater for FOUR Days (cuz of how he’s….FOUR!)

Your order will still qualify for the free thank you gift from me and for Peppermint Reward Points!  Orders of $150+ will also qualify for Stampin’ Rewards from Stampin’ Up!!

Happy shopping and…eat a milk bone for Finn!

Stampin’ Up! A Simple Hello From Forever Fern!

‘Sup, y’all!??  Hope your week is going well and that you’re staying safe.

And masked.  And socially distanced!  We’re seeing spikes in cases, people – time to hunker back down if you’ve de-hunkered!

Just sayin’!

At our awesome Zoom team meeting this past weekend, three of us prepped and led the group in creating a card with the wonderful new Forever Fern bundle.  I’ll share Amy and Sue’s cards later this week – mine was (uncharacteristically!) simple – letting some Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper add just the right amount of bling!  Take a look-see!

See what I mean?

While I stamped and talked the team thru the card – I could see all their pretty faces looking back at me!

It was so cool to be “together” to stamp and craft and laugh!  Yeah ZOOM!!!

This one started with some of the pretty Forever Greenery DSP matted on Soft Sea Foam for the card front.

We embossed a Shaded Spruce panel in the Greenery Embossing Folder, matted it on Soft Sea Foam and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.

Then, the pretty floral Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper die cut was adhered with Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped the sentiment from Forever Fern in Shaded Spruce ink.

I stamped a couple of small leaf images in Soft Sea Foam and a few of the splatter image in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I cut the sentiment with the next-to-smallest circle Stitched Shapes Die.

I popped the sentiment onto the gold die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the white Elegant Faceted Gems and the card front was done!

Told you it was quick and easy! 😉

On the inside, I added some larger Forever Fern leaves in Shaded Spruce, smaller leaves in Soft Sea Foam, and some splatters in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I added more Elegant Faceted Gems!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat 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 more of the Forever Fern leaves and splatters on the front…

…and a little more Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Wow – I do SO love this Forever Fern bundle with the Forever Flourishing dies that cut out stand-alone leaves as well as stamped leaf images – WHAT A SET!!…

And the two papers in the suite are gorgeous!

Et Voila!  I hope you like and have this set on your list!  I’ll be bringing you a couple more cards using it as the week goes by – if you don’t want it now…you WILL! 🙂

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


Yesterday was Finn’s six-month Wellness check.

At about….8 months!  Between the vet and I, we’d pushed it right a couple of times.

Thank you, COVID.

But – this is the “off” check – just checking general health and well-being (and the dreaded scale!) – no shots or blood work.  And, since he’s a pretty healthy dude – it seemed like the right thing to do!

As always – he was very very happy to go and see his friends at the clinic.  And they really love him there.

And, y’all – he is SO stinkin’ good!  The new protocol is that owners can go into the exam room as long as they’re wearing a mask, but the tech takes the patient to the back for the exam.

Finn went with her with not so much as a backwards glance.

I got this, Mom!

Then he comes back in with this giant grin and wiggler wagging.

And plops down next to me to see what’s going to happen next.

He likes their cool floor, I think!

But – he’s always interested as soon as the little knock at the door comes…

Come on in, Dr. Chris!  We’re ready for you! 🙂

You’ll be glad to know that, except for what appears to be some developing arthritis in his left hand, he’s hale, hearty and healthy!

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Flowers For Every Season!

Happy Monday, y’all!

Well – once my back decided that it could calm down a bit on Sunday, the weekend went pretty well for me – we had a fun Inkin’ Krew meeting yesterday on Zoom – and we even made some cards “together’!  With our team spread out all over the country, it’s totally cool to be able to see everyone and laugh and craft together!!  We have an awesome team – and more folks joining us all the time – especially with the amazing joining special we’ve got going right now!

My card today is not one of the ones we worked on in our meeting – but you’ll get to see those in the next few days.  Today, I have a quick and super easy card for you to make with the beautiful Flowers For Every Season Memories & More card pack and…yes, again!…the Many Mates stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout for this one from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock that I embossed in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.

I pulled two of the smaller cards from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack and cut them down a bit.  Then I matted them on Bumble Bee card stock.

I adhered the first to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using Glue Dots, I adhered a length of Bumble Bee 1/4″ 2020-2022 In Color RIbbon.

On the second panel – the one with the frame – I stamped a sentiment from Many Mates in Pretty Peacock.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Many Mates sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White Panel.  Across the bottom of the panel, I adhered a Bumble Bee-matted strip of Flowers For Every Season DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Just Jade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got one of the flower stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack on the front…

…and more Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love this Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack – it’s so handy and makes quick and easy cards so…quick and easy.  And beautiful!!

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

House guard….POST!

On full alert.

I shall not eat while at my post.

I shall alert my family if there is a deer.  Or a mud dauber.  Or a leaf.

I shall stay ever vigilant.

The first, the last – yes, the very final defense….

I will not sleep…

Well – maybe just rest my chin for a minute….

Stampin’ Up! Grand Pampered Pets Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

‘Sup, y’all!  It’s the weekend!  Which – I realized yesterday – really doesn’t mean much these days.  Surely not for me.  And yet – on Friday afternoons, I still find myself getting a little thrill of “YES!  It’s the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!”.  Guess all those years where Friday DID mean something take a second to get past!

For today – hope you’ve got something fun planned and – I hope – joining me tonight at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page – will be a part of that plan!  I’ve got a cute little card for you – with the Pampered Pets bundle!  Take a sneaky Peek!

The other evening while I was working on a blog post, I had the tv going.  As usual.

Don’t judge – it’s how I roll!

Well – the America’s Funniest Videos was on – which I don’t actually watch.

But – they were doing some animal videos and there was a lot of laughter and I noticed…

SOMEthing had his attention for sure!

I looked at the tv and saw that there was a cat on top of a door in a house…

Sorry – not easy to tell what the black blob is on tv screen – but…FINN knows what it is!!  It’s one a them pesky CATS!!

He was fascinated.

He was pretty…dialed in! 😉

See what I did there?

For you young ‘uns – that was funny cuz tv’s used to have dials.  That you had to turn with your HANDS! With 13 numbers on them.  But…only 3 or 4 did anything.

Get it now? “DIALED” in?!?  😉

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Bouquet Thank You with a Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Friday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned!

I’m hoping to have some friends come this afternoon to do a little card making.  We’ll wear our masks and stay as socially distanced as possible. But – she’s retiring from the airline soon and is thinking maybe card-ing would be fun now that she’ll have some time.  And – she’s intrigued (rightly enough!) by the current joining special.  She likes the sound of “FREE” as much as the next person – and a bundle of free?  Yes, please! 🙂

Now – one of the awesomer new bundles in the catalog and…one she – or you! – could pick for free – is the Prized Peony Bundle.  The Prized Peony stamp set is gorgeous, for sure.  But – the real prize (see what I did there?) is the bundled Peony Dies.  Which lets you cut out all the gorgeous flower images in the stamp set AND lets you build stunning 3D peonies. Like I created today.  Take a look-see:

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – and you got to see exactly how to build these peonies.  If not – take a gander at it here on YouTube.  Moving pictures are worth a gazillion words! 😉

The layout for this one was loosely inspired by this week’s challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a piece of In Good Taste DSP wood-grain paper that I matted on Just Jade for the card front using new Stampin’ Seal.

I created some leaves using the dies in the Peony Dies – each leaf uses two different dies.  I created them from Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and from Mint Macaron card stock.  The larger solid leaves in Mint Macaron, I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I adhered the leaf parts together with Liquid Glue.

I cut three flowers – they each take 4 parts….

One I cut from Whisper White card stock, one from Mango Melody Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP and one from So Saffron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Using an almost-dry Sponge Dauber, I lightly brushed the edges of all the flower pieces.

I ran the four Whisper White petals thru the cutting and embossing machine in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Bone Folder to curl all the petals into a most-realistic looking shape. 😉

Finally – I assembled all the flowers.  Just remember – the smallest petal into the next largest into the next largest and finally into the biggest petal.  Align the “notch” at the bottom and adhere with Liquid Glue.

Confused?  Truly – it’s easy.  Watch the video and I’ll prove it to you! 🙂

I stamped the Prized Peony sentiment in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White, then used the smallest rectangle die cut in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut the sentiment.  That die is the right width – but is too short.  So…I made the cut longer by running thru the machine twice.  Check the video – this part starts at about 34:45 into the video.  LOTS easier to show than to write! 🙂

I laid out my collage and took a picture – first of the whole thing and then with the top flower off…

Then I started adhering all the pieces and parts with Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a Linen Thread “Figure 8” before adding the final Mango Melody flower.

A few of the new Elegant Faceted Gems – the pink ones – finished off the card front!

On the inside, I inked the Peony image (the middle sized one) from Prized Peony in Magenta Madness.  Then I stamped it off twice before stamping a Whisper White panel.  I repeated that three more times.  Then I colored them with my Light So Saffron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.  I also added a second sentiment in Early Espresso.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into my Early Espresso card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Prized Peony on the front…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila – does this Peony Die set not make the more stunningly gorgeous flowers??  I can’t believe how real you can make them look – just by stacking four die cuts together!  And the beautiful images and sentiments in the bundled Prized Peony round this out to be the perfect bundle!

I hope you like – and have this one coming soon!  Or…that it’s on the short list for your free pick when you join my team! 😉

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

Finn Fan Fix


Yesterday, Wayne got back from being in NC for a few days working on our rental property.

Which meant it was – finally!! – time to turn these…

…into this…

No – NOT the yellow squash – it’s destined for different things!

Served up with some corn bread?  Oh yes – that’s some good eating!

Well – the Finn-meister was NOT convinced that what I was working on was VEGETABLES!!!

“I LOVE beans, Mom. ESPECIALLY French Algarve beans that I grew myself!”

He doesn’t.  I promise.

Now – the ham in the beans??  Likely a far different story! 🙂
