Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Tree for the SU Demos Fun Fold Blog Hop!

May be an image of book and text that says 'FUN OLDS BLOG HOP HOP with Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators'

Good morning everyone and welcome to a fun new blog hop!  It’s the Fun Folds Blog Hop for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!  We’ve got a talented line-up and…I think you’re going to like what you see!  This’ll be a once-a-month hop and…all our cards will be fun folds!!  Whoo-hoo!

Now – as you might know…recall…remember…just be hearing about now!…the Perfect Partners promotion is ending on 30 Sept (which is…SOON!).  That means your chance to pick up the cool die sets that coordinate with some favorites from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini and the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog will be…going away!  I decided this would be a good time to play with the Tree Trimming Dies – this one coordinates with the Trimming the Tree set from the Annual Catalog.  And I paired it up with the stunning and elegant Lights Aglow 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Leaves & Boughs of Holly Christmas with Video Tutorial

Good morning good morning!  Hope your weekend is going well.

Fun fact – today is National One Hit Wonder Day.  Really?!?  Think that thru.  Someone – on the National Day Determination Committee (pretty sure that’s a real thing!) – thought that one hit wonders were worth having their own day.  🤔🤔🤔  It’s ALSO National Quesadilla Day.  The NDDC did a MUCH better job on this one – quesadillas really ARE something to celebrate!!! 😉

Speaking of one hit wonders – my card today showcases some Stampin Up! products that will NOT be one hit wonders in your tool chest!  The Leaves of Holly bundle with the Boughs of Holly DSP is so gorgeous and will be a workhorse for Christmas projects!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings & Ferns Thank You Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Friday!  Have you had a good week?  We have – we’ve gotten a lot of things done this week – including getting internet extended from the house to the barn!  Which means we’re able to have a bluetooth camera in the barn and…now we can keep an eye on the ponies in their bedrooms at night!  They don’t seem to mind the lack of privacy! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today features the beautiful Soft Seedlings stamp set and the Fern 3D Embossing Folder with a few die cut shapes from the Stitched Rectangles and Stylish Shapes die sets.  Take a look-see!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Pretty Prints Hello There Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  We’re back in “last gasp of summer” mode here – nice for a few hours in the morning, but then…channeling a SAUNA around lunch.  Yuk.  AND – it’s getting dark earlier and earlier.  DOUBLE YUK!  But – dark early means cooler days are coming – which I am looking forward to – I’m anxious to start griping about the COLD – not the hot! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today is not Christmas.  Nor Fall.  It’s all about gorgeous organic images of cool greenery and Calypso Coral-ery!  Yes – I’m referring to the wunnermus Pretty Prints DSP.  It plays a big role in the card – forming the base for the Nature’s Prints leaves – all cut with the bundled Natural Prints Dies.  Take a look-see:

Hey, my peeps – how’s everyone today?  Doing well?  I hope so and I hope that your week is going good so far! Just a quick note – if you haven’t checked out this week’s Weekly Deals – be sure to do that quick – they’re only good thru tomorrow!

My card today uses the super fun – hey, have you heard that Santa Claus is coming to town in…97 days?  Yep.  It’s true.  Sorry!  Anywhooo…my card uses the Santa’s Delivery stamp set with its bundled Santa’s Train Dies.  And – it’s such a cool set, especially when you consider that the dies will cut out fun images from the coordinating Santa Express DSP (I LOVE when that happens, don’t you??).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! CAS Christmas Scottie & Go To Greetings with Aspens & Leaf Fall

Happy Monday, y’all!  We had a wonderful evening with our friends last night – good pizza and good dessert, good company and good conversation!  Feels like it had been a long time since we’d been together.  No tiny human was in attendance – but…we made do with just us big ‘uns!! 🙂

My card today is my specialty – Clean and Simple.

Bwahahahahaha!!!  You know THAT’S a half-truth.  Quarter truth?!  Hardly any truth at all???  😉

But – I hope you’ll like it anyway.  For the most part, I try hard to keep the number of stamp sets, dies, embossing folders, etc to a minimum but…I NEEDED all the products that I used – on this card – plus the super-wonderful Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.   Christmas Scottie was a big player on the front and inside of the card.  And…the wunnermus Aspen Tree Dies are pivotal to the design, with Go To Greetings bringing the front sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all!  Hope the weekend is shaping up to be a good one for you!  We’re having friends over this evening – including the totes adorbs Juliette – who I suspect is growing like a weed!  We’re having pizza – which I also suspect SHE won’t want to eat much of…  or…you know…any! 🙂

My card today has all the things I love.  Flowers.  Fall.  Vintage-izing.  Layers layers and layers!! It uses the Fond of Autumn stamp set and bundled Autumn Bouquet Dies.  The vintag-i-fication comes from the cool Stripes 3D Embossing Folder – and a sponge dauber.  Tale a look-see:
