Stampin’ Up! FREE SHIPPING DAY and…Stamps-N-Lingers Online Host Club Openings!

Good morning, y’all!  Are you enjoying the Free Shipping Day from Stampin’ Up!?  It’s the perfect day to GO BIG – since the UPS-bill is on THEM!!  I’ve got a list of card stock and envelopes and Blends…  Okay…and maybe some stamps and dies and embossing folders…. Whoo-hoo!!

Speaking of stocking up…I’ve got some openings in my Online Host Club starting in January!  Online Host Clubs are a GREAT way to build your stash-o-goodies!

Now – I’m doing a little something different for the Jan – Jun 2020 Club.  And there’s method to my madness!  We’re going to get EVERY single club member a chance to “be the host” during Sale-A-Bration!

Whoo-hoo!!!

Normally, the club would consist of SIX people – for SIX months.  Each of those months, everyone commits to placing at least a $25 order using the Club Host Code (that I send y’all at the start of each month).   I randomly pick who “gets” which month. Which works great – EXCEPT when there’s only THREE months of Sale-A-Bration.  Three peeps are very excited and the other three be like… 🙁 !  Not so much.  So check it…here’s how it’ll work.

Instead of SIX people for SIX Months – I’ll divide the club in half – THREE people for two consecutive three-month clubs.  And – with the smaller number – the monthly commitment would be $50 before shipping and tax versus $25.  But – that’s the number you’d be wanting to hit during Sale-A-Bration anyway, in order to get those free goodies!  AND when you add in Double Peppermints…whoo-hoo! 🙂  And don’t forget that you’d get TWO months as HOST!!  So – two months of Stampin’ Rewards – and two months of free shipping!!

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

At the end of the club, I have each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.  For this format – I’ll  do a Free stamp set at the end of EACH club (for anyone who is math-challenged…that’s TWO free stamp sets)!  Win-win-win!

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 over TWENTY-FOUR tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around ONE 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
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each 3 month “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!

When you join the club – please plan to commit to the full six months – it’s just going to be in two three-month increments.  Does that make sense?  And that will position you perfectly to get all your faves from the new 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog!

Don’t delay – 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!

Stampin’ Up! Peace & Light Christmas Blessings

Happy Monday, y’all!  As we count down – FAST! – towards Christmas, I hope that you’re making your way thru the seemingly endless list of “to-do’s” to be “ready” for the big day!!  And that you’re getting a little time to spend enjoying the season.

My card today truly celebrates the reason we have the season at all.  And it comes to you from a beautiful Retiring stamp set in the 2019 Holiday Catalog, called Light & Peace.  Take a look-see:

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

And the cool color scheme is from the TGIF Color Challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and in the corner, I stamped the sentiment from Light & Peace in Seaside Spray ink.

I embossed the panel in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, then matted it on a piece of Silver Foil to create the card front.

I ran a length of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon down the left side, securing it on the back with Glue Dots.

Using a die in the Christmas Layers Dies – I cut a pretty flourish from Silver Glimmer Paper.  Since I wanted the “corner” to go the other way – I turned the paper over in my Die Cutting machine – cutting from the back-to-the-front (versus from front-to-the-back) of the paper.  That reversed the die cut for me!

I adhered the die cut over top of the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I inked and stamped the Light & Peace angel image in Versamark.  I sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.  Then I fussy cut her.

I used my Clear Wink of Stella to brush her wings, then, still with the Wink Glitter Brush,  I picked up Seaside Spray ink from the lid of the ink pad and used it to “watercolor” her dress.  I used my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend on her hair – and the Ivory Blend for her face and arms.

I popped her onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel by the sentiment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Light & Peace sentiment in Seaside Spray on a Whisper White panel.  Then I adhered a Christmas Layers die cut in Silver Glimmer Paper with Liquid Glue.

I usd Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Silver Foil mat and into my Seaside Spray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Light & Peace angel on the front – stamped in Seaside Spray and colored as on the front of the card…

…and I stamped another Light & Peace sentiment in Seaside Spray on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The elegant images and sentiments from Light & Peace really exemplify the beauty of this season, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Don’t miss this sweet stamp set, y’all – it’s on the retiring list and will be gone for good on 2 Jan 20!

This is how Finn spent much of Sunday.

Sleeping.

Cuz we were having a party/team meeting at Sue’s!  Which – since we agreed that there are no calories in any food at a party (we saw it on the internet, so….take THAT to the bank!) – involved way too much eating!

After lunch – we had a team meeting with Amy via Zoom.

Then…we made cards! Yeah!

Love these ladies – such a nice day – and a big Thank You to Sue for inviting me and Wayne up to her home for the event!

Here we are – Krew South!

While we were congregated in the South – Krew North was doing pretty much the same thing! Hey, Terry Lynn! 😉

Here’s a sneak peek at the cards we made with the gorgeous Painted Poppies stamp set – I left mine “sentiment-neutral”, so that I can add a sentiment later for whatever occasion I need!  I suspect I’ll use the Peaceful Moments stamp set (all coming on 3 Jan 20!).

Pretty, huh?  In a future post, I’ll give you the how-to’s and what-not’s so that you’ll be able to make your own!  🙂

Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Toile Tidings Gift Box Video Tutorial

Happy Sunday!  Hope your weekend is going well.

Don’t want to scare you but…there are only TWO more Sundays before Christmas.  😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your last 18 shopping days with me!  If not – but you’d like to see how to make these uber-handy gift boxes, here’s the replay!

I got the idea for these boxes from my teammate, Karen Finkle – who made a bunch of them for a party of her own.  She gave us a link to the talented Lea Denton (The Crafty Spark) and I watched her make these boxes a few times before giving it a go!

The first one ended up being a large box…. 4″ x 9″!  Awesome – and you can see Lea’s video here.  The technique is roughly the same!

I needed smaller boxes for some gifts i’ve got rolling around in my head – so…that’s what we did last night!

 

While the best way to see how to make these is to watch the video – here’s the recipe…

I use Tear & Tape Adhesive to assemble the box and Liquid Glue for adhering the panels.

For last night’s video, we used the Toile Tidings DSP on a Sahara Sand box and lid – similar to the first larger box I made.

But – it’s also great with Wrapped in Plaid DSP!

This way of making the boxes results in a smooth and nicely reinforced top…

…and adding a final square of card stock on the bottom finishes it off and really adds to the strength of the box – and its ability to hold heavier gifts (like…more CHOCOLATE)!

The lids are also sturdy – and have a slot for threading your ribbon – thanks to the Detailed Trio Punch!

For you visual learner-types….here’s what the lid looks like when you’re done snipping and punching!  That’s the top of the lid you are looking at. 🙂

For the video last night, I used Real Red 1″ Ruched Ribbon.  In these pictures – I used the Very Vanilla/Copper Classic Weave Ribbon (2019 Holiday Catalog) and some 5/16″ Braided Linen Trim (from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog).

Et Voila!  The final size of my box from last night is 3″ x 6″ – perfect for all sorts of gifts, don’t you think?  I hope you like – and will pull out your Simply Scored Board and that stash of DSP you’ve been hoarding!

Speaking of DSP – we’ve got beautiful new paper coming in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog!  And – you can get a sample of all the papers with a catalog share!  Check out all the deets below and get signed up right away!

Depending on what time you get up and rush to the computer to see what pearls of wisdom and crafty knowledge I am bestowing upon you today – Wayne and I may be on our way north of town for a Stamp With Amy K team meeting at my freind Sue Prather’s house.  Ever since Amy so callously left us (JK! – she knows I love her!) – we’ve tried to meet at Sue’s for the quarterly in-person team meeting!

Today is meeting combined with Christmas get-together.

Which means…food! 😉

After failing to obtain Chik-Fil-A Chicken Mini’s – I went with my old standby – deviled eggs.

I mean – it IS a Christmas event!

Once my trusty Mealthy Multipot whipped out a bunch of hard boiled eggs – I got busy.

And…of course Finn helped!

Once all the eggs were deviled and stuffed, I might have taken the last few swipes of filling out of the bowl.

For myself.

Is it me or is he looking a little judge-y?!?

I think he’s being judge-y.

He got over it pretty fast…

I am both ahead and behind.

We have a tree…

…but no ornaments on it yet.

Finn-y likes to sleep by the lights in the mornings while I walk!!

If I was a single girl – I’d put the tree in my bedroom so that I, too, could sleep with the Christmas lights!  I LOVE them – but they’d keep Wayne awake, so…

Question….are you a White-Lights person or a Colored-Lights person?!? 😉

There’s not really a story or a little funny to go along with these pictures.

Wayne was searching for fur-stickers.  When you’re covered in fuzzy Velcro, those are a perpetual problem.  The struggle is real.

I was on the sofa and looked over and…the expression on the Man’s face and the position he was in was….just too sweet.  It NEEDED to be captured.

So….here ya go!

You’re welcome! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths and Scrolls Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Before I get going – let me remind you that today is the day that the Trimmer Blades will be available again – starting at 10am Mountain Time!!  I’ll TRY to be at the computer to send a quick “HEY IT’S LIVE” post…but…set your alarms and head to the Online Store right on time (or even a little early!) and start ordering your own (Item #126995)!  Three packs – that’s the max!

My card for you today is another Sneak Peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog – which is just over a week away! This one uses the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set.  Something cool about this set is that it coordinates with the All-Around Wreaths dies – which you can get bundled with the Tidings All Around stamp set!  Yep – one die set…TWO stamp sets that coordinate!  Winner winner! For this card, I also used the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s challenge over at The Paper Players.

And the colors are from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder (coming 4 Sept – find it in the Spooktacular Bash Suite!) and then matted on Blueberry Bushel for the card front.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I cut a square of Whisper White and used my Stamparatus to stamp the wreath using the image in the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set.  I placed the stamp in the first “corner” of the square panel and stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I turned the panel 1/4 turn to the right (clock-wise) and stamped again.  I did that two more times to complete the wreath!

I colored the wreath with my Light and Dark Call Me Clover and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I also used my Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover and Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Markers.

I added some faux “stitches” around the edge with my Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Seasonal Wreaths, is stamped in Blueberry Bushel on Whisper White and cut with another Stitched Rectangles Die.  I used a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

I added a bow tied with Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered with a Glue Dot.  A Gingham-Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequin in Grapefruit Grove and a few Pearl Basic Jewels finished it off!

On the inside, I added second sentiment from Seasonal Wreaths in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the floral bough image once in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – coloring it as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat and into my Call Me Clover card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another floral bough from Seasonal Wreaths on the front…

…and some more of the Petal Pink Subtles DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  LOVE this wreath – made from four stamped images from Seasonal Wreaths!  But – there is ALSO a full wreath image in the set – and that one can be cut out with the die in the All-Around Wreaths Dies!  And – the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder adds such a sweet and classy bit of texture! I hope you like!!

Finn Fan Fix


I have some proof that Finn has Super-Canine Powers.

So yesterday morning, the Man decided to hold the strategically superior high ground…literally…

He stared at me – looking really quite splendid! – as I peeked around the corner to take his picture.

He’s a Star.  It’s his due.

Several minutes later – with no fanfare, very little noise and no indication to him – I ever-so-stealthily went into the tack room (which he absolutely, positively could NOT see from his vantage point!) to get the peppermints for the girls.

One point two nanoseconds later…

Super ear-balls.  Super schnoozle.

Just sayin’.

Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cardinal Sneak Peek

Good Monday!

And nope – NOT an oxymoron!  At least…not for me.

Sorry – that was mean!  But…Monday has no effect on me anymore!

Well – except if I need to go to Walmart, I know that one of these next five days is the day to do it!  Don’t have to go on the WEEKEND anymore!  Whoo-hoo!

My card today showcases some of the goodies you can get for a tidy little savings if you purchase my Bundle #6 Toile & Wreaths!  I used the Toile Christmas stamp set and bundled Christmas Cardinal, plus some gorgeous Toile Tidings DSP!  Take a look-see!

I took some design ideas from the samples in the 2019 Holiday Catalog and the layout is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with some pretty Real Red Toile Tidings DSP, the same size as the card front, adhered with Liquid Glue.

The next layer is a Garden Green check design – also from the Toile Tidings DSP, matted on Real Red and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then there’s a smaller Very Vanilla panel, matted on Real Red and stuck on with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a piece of new Real Red 1″ Ruched Ribbon (2019 Holiday Catalog!) across the card front with a couple of Glue Dots.

On a seperate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the branch and Cardinal images in Basic Gray Ink, using my Stamparatus.  I cut them with their dies in the Christmas Cardinal die set.

For the branch – I used Light and Dark Crumb Cake and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color the branch and leaves.  I picked up Real Red ink from the lid of the ink pad with my Blender Pen to color the berries.  Then I adhered it over the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

I colored the Cardinal by using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to pick up Real Red ink from the lid and I used Mango Melody the same way for his beak.  I popped him onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Toile Christmas, is stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake and cut with the Christmas Cardinal die that matches it – then it’s adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut a few leaves from Garden Green – with dies in the Christmas Cardinal set –  and adhered them with more Liquid Glue.  Then I tied a little bow of Garden Green 3/8″ Double-Stitched Ribbon (2019 Holiday Catalog!) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I added a few Garden Green Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel.  I also added a branch – in Basic Gray, then colored it like I did on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Crumb Cake card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Toile Christmas branch on the front…

…and some more of the pretty Toile Tidings DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is that die cut Toile Christmas Cardinal?  Especially all shimmery from the Clear Wink of Stella?!?  I love the coordinating Toile Tidings DSP, too!  I hope you like!

My Special Bundle #6: Toile & Wreaths Bundle – is perfect if this card struck your fancy! 🙂

…and a free bonus gift – Toile & Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots!
