Stampin’ Up! Sending Thoughts Sneak Peek on Peaceful Poppies for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebration!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to go with a congratulations card using a fun sentiment from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Flyer stamp set called Sending You Thoughts (which you’ll be able to pick up for FREE with a $50 order starting on 3 Jan 20!) and the most gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP (in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog also coming on 3 Jan 20!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

This one is super easy so…buckle up!

I started with a piece of the gorgeous, wunnermus, spectacular – dare I say AMAZEBALLS!! – Peaceful Poppies DSP.  I cut a Stitched Rectangle from the middle of the panel.

I matted the leftover panel onto a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue.  I also matted the die cut piece on Basic Black and popped that right over the negative space on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set, is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Whisper White and cut with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the sentiment to the popped up portion of the card front with Liquid Glue.

A few clear sequins from the new Peaceful Poppies Sequins pack – adhered on the sentiment and the card front with Liquid Glue – finished it all off!

On the inside, I stamped a second Sending You Thoughts sentiment in Blackberry Bliss on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I added the large flower outline from Painted Poppies in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I inked the large flower-fill-in image in Poppy Parade, stamped it off once and stamped it over the outline.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few more Painted Poppies on the front…

…and a little more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila.  If you’ve been following me for a minute, you’ve heard me say “THIS is my favorite DSP of all time” about a ….hundred times!  And I always mean it when I say it – and then….a NEW “my favorite DSP” comes along.  Well – Peaceful Poppies is my current “favorite DSP of all time”!  I think it’s absolutely stunning.  I love the Painted Poppies stamp set, too.  Put them together?  Well – they’re a miracle of GORGEOUS-NESS!  And we shouldn’t forget the Sending You Thoughts stamp set – wonderful sentiments and…Free during Sale-A-Bration.  Uhm…hello?!?  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Leslie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Sue’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Golden Honey Bee Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  It.  Is.  FRIDAY!! Whoo-hoo!!

AND – all my catalogs are stickered and stuffed and sent!  Double Whooo-hooo!! 🙂

I’ve got a cute little 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and 2020 Sale-A-Bration Flyer sneak peek for you today.  This set is one I wanted the INSTANT I saw it in the catalog – it’s the Honey Bee Bundle – with the Detailed Bee Dies.  AND – there’s awesome Golden Honey Bee Specialty DSP in the Sale-A-Bration flyer – which means…FREE DESIGNER SERIES PAPER!!  Yikes!!  Take a look-see:

The layout – and a few elements (if you look close, you’ll see what I mean!) in this one – are from this week’s FUSION challenge.

And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with some of the beautiful gold-foil-accented Golden Honey Specialty DSP that I matted on Bermuda Bay for the card front.

On a smaller rectangle of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the curved sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set (coming on 4 Jan 20!) in Bermuda Bay.  Then I cut out the beehive shape, using the die in the bundled Detailed Bee Die Set.

I used the honeycomb die from the set and cut a couple from a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper.

I used a piece of Daffodil Delight paper from the new Birthday Bonanza DSP (also coming on 4 Jan 20!) behind the beehive.  I adhered the Gold Glimmer honeycomb with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the Whisper White panel over top with more Liquid Glue.

On scrap Whisper White, I stamped the large bee and two small bees in Tuxedo Black -and cut them out with their matching die from the Detailed Bee Die set.

Yes – you heard me.  Dies.  That.  Cut.  Bees.

Whaaaaa!??!  How AWESOME is that?!? 🙂

Answer: VERY freakin’ awesome!

I colored their bodies with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker and the wings with my Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend.  I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the wings, too.

I used the marker-to-rubber technique to color the two flower images – Pear Pizzazz for the stems and leaves and Daffodil Delight for the flowers.  This technique is made SO much easier with the Stamparatus – it means you can stamp over the image as many times as you need!  I cut the flowers with their matching dies.  And some Gold Glimmer hearts, too!

I adhered the flowers and hearts and the right-most little bee with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the second small bee and the large guy with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Pear Pizzazz “faux stitches” with my Stampin’ Write Marker and the card was done!

On the inside, I added a stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight beehive from the Honey Bee set in the center of a Whisper White panel.   Over top, I added a second sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  Then I added a single flower – once again using the marker-to-rubber technique.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and into my Pear Pizzazz card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Daffodil Delight beehive on the front – plus a couple of little Tuxedo Black bees…

…and some more of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  You guys – I was TOTALLY right to covet this set when I saw it!  The Honey Bee stamp set is adorable – and the bundled Detailed Bee Dies cut.  Out.  BEES!  Like…bee-legs.  And bee-antenna.  NO fussy cutting!  Whoo-hoo!!  Add in the Golden Honey Specialty DSP (that you’ll be able to pick up for free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order before shipping and tax!  I hope you LIKE – add this one to your Wish List as soon as your catalog arrives.  It’s on page 30.  Just sayin’! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Sneak Peek Friends Forever

Happy Day-After-Thanksgiving-AKA-Christmas-Decorations-Day-AKA-LOCK-THE-DOOR-AND-HIDE-UNDER-THE-COVERS-CUZ-IT’S-BLACK-FRIDAY!!

Do YOU go out on Black Friday?

If Finn or Katy HAD to go to the vet – I’d go.  But that’s about the only reason I’d leave my place on Black Friday!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving – and have recovered from any possible over-indulgence!  We had a wonderful afternoon with our friends.

Before I started cooking yesterday, I made a fun little card to share with you today – with a little Sneak Peek from the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog.  This is a great card for a friend and it uses a nice little bundle that you MIGHT overlook when you get your catalog – called Under My Umbrella with the bundled Umbrella Punch.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is loosely inspired by this week’s challenge from The Paper Players – and a bit of a CASE from the new catalog!

I started with a piece of our Fluid 100 Watercolor paper for the card front.  Using Pool Party Ink and my Aqua Painter, I picked up ink from the lid and swiped it across the top of the panel to create “sky”.  For the ground, I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in the same way to “watercolor” some Smoky Slate.

The rain is Pool Party, using an image in the set – I stamped here and there, twice without re-inking.

I adhered the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella set (coming on 4 Jan 20) in Pretty Peacock.  I love that sentiment, don’t you? 🙂

I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the umbrella image on a beautiful piece of paper from the new Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP (also coming on 4 Jan!).  Then I punched that with the bundled Umbrella Punch.

I also used the punch to make the handle – which is stamped in Soft Suede on Soft Suede cardstock.

The flowers and the rain boots are fussy cut!

I stamped several of the flower images in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White, and the rain boots on a piece of Daffodil Delight paper in the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Then I fussy cut them all!

The flowers are colored with my Clear Wink of Stella brush, in Petal Pink, Cherry Cobbler, Pineapple Punch, Pear Pizzazz, and Pool Party.

With everything cut and ready to go – I created my focal art.

 

I adhered the boots and the handle with Liquid Glue.  Then I added two of the flower bunches with Liquid Glue over the handle.

Next, I popped the umbrella on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The last flower spray is adhered with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and Liquid Glue.

I finished off with a few Frosted drops from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Under My Umbrella in Pretty Peacock on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over the sentiment, I stamped the rain image a couple of times in stamped-off-once Pool Party ink.  Then I added some flowers in the corners in Tuxedo Black, coloring them as I’d done on the front of the card.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Under My Umbrella flowers on the front…

…and a little more of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Under My Umbrella stamp set and bundled Umbrella Punch might be a bit of a fly-over bundle – but…don’t let it be!  It has such cool sentiments – perfectly matched to the umbrella, flowers and rain images.  And…PUNCH!!  Loves me some punches!  I hope you like and that you’ll consider this one for your Wish List!

So – do you guys decorate the day after Thanksgiving?  We usually do.

Or I always want to – sometimes my “want” and my “do” are at odds with each other.

But – one thing is fur sure…

It’s beginning to look a lot like a puppy Christmas!

I THINK his Dad might have let him peek – even after I told him not to…maybe he’ll forget what he saw by the 25th! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Sneak Peek Fun Fold Video Tutorial!

Good morning, all!  Hope your weekend is going well!

Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  My friend Jan and I finalized the menu for dinner last night.  It looks a LOT like it does every year.  There’s comfort in tradition, yes? 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of this last weekend before Thanksgiving with me!  If not but you’d like to see my CASE of my teammate Tara’s gorgeous fun-fold card and matching gift box, here ’tis!

While Tara used the gorgeous Magnolia Lane suite for her version, I did a sneak peek of the Timeless Tropical stamp set and bundled In The Tropics Dies – with the Tropical Oasis DSP.  Take a look-see!

And here’s the inspiration set that Tara Carpenter made for me!

Thanks, Tara!

While the best way to see how to make the card and box is to watch the video – here’s the basics!

I started by coloring my Mini Pizza Box with my Sponge Brayer and Blushing Bride ink.  Then I decorated the top with matted paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP and an Early Espresso sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set (both coming to you on 4 Jan 20!) and some flowers cut with the In The Tropics Die set.  A loop of new Braided Burlap Trim accentuates the tropical theme!

I added matted DSP all the way around the box – and it was ready.  For our card AND/OR a brownie or cookie or…remember, the Mini Pizza Boxes are food safe on the inside! 🙂

For the card, I cut two pieces of Blushing Bride at 3 1/4″ x 9 3/4″ and scored and folded them both at 3 1/4″ and 6 1/2″.  Using Liquid Glue, I overlapped the end squares to create a loooong accordian-fold card!

On the front, I adhered a So-Saffron-matted piece of Tropical Oasis DSP.  I added a smaller strip (with the car) as well.  Using my Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber inking technique, I stamped the Timeless Tropical palm tree – in Early Espresso for the trunk and Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow for the fronds.  Then I cut it with the matching die in the In The Tropics die set.

I adhered the palm trees with Liquid Glue.

For the inside, I used a sentiment from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration set called Sending You Thoughts, stamping it in Early Espresso on Whisper White and cutting it out with a Stitched Nested Label die.  I popped it onto a So-Saffron-matted piece of Tropical Oasis DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals – on the center panel as the focal point.  I added more leaves and flowers – and a Noble Rhinestone gem.

The other panels are decorated with Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card pack stickers or the sentiment from Timeless Tropical.

Et Voila!  I feel a little like a broken record but THIS might be my favorite Suite in the upcoming 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog!  Tropical Oasis is simply stunning – with the gorgeous DSP and Timeless Tropical stamp set and bundled In The Tropics Dies!  I hope you like and that this one has made its way… WAAAAY up on your MUST HAVE list when the catalog goes live!

Want it on 3 DECEMBER instead of 4 January?  Well – I can help you with that!  Folks who sign up as Demonstrators starting on 3 Dec can select from the new goodies to fill their Starter Kit!  Whether you’d like to have a business and make a little income or you simply want the awesome discount on EVERYTHING – I would absolutely LOVE to have you on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team!  Give me a shout!

Everybody handles mornings differently.

Finn gets up with me and then goes back to bed while I walk the treadmill.

Then he gets up again when his Dad gets up and…”helps” us with breakfast and getting out to feed the girls.

Mornings are hard. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! OnStage Pics and 2020 Occasions Sneak Peeks!

Well – OnStage Local 2019 is IN THE BOOKS!  I’ll be on the way home soon – back to the Man.  And The Man.  I’ll leave it to you to decide who is which!

I wanted to share some pics from OnStage and a few Sneak Peeks from the 2020 Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration Flyer!  I think you’re going to like them!

We had a big turn out from the “Krews”!

It took TWO tables to fit us – and all our chocolate and goodies!!

We had a great day of stamping and make-and-takes and whoo-ing and Prize Patrols…and then we adjourned to the hotel for the traditional post-OnStage Pizza Party and catalog perusing.  But first – we took a picture with some friendly Meercats.  Which…you MIGHT see some more of soon! 😉

We got the new 2020 Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration flyer pretty early in the day!  You’ll notice an orientation difference with this catalog – it’s the same size but…it’s in “landscape” mode.  Which means bigger layouts and pictures!  Kinda cool!

I took a ton of pictures – 111, in fact! – of the Display Boards.

I’ll share some of them here for you – and I’ll be posting a bunch more of them on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page later today – so…be watching for them!

Here we go!

There are Seven Suites…

A bunch of Bundles…

A couple of cool kits…

And the Botanical Prints Product Medley.  Check out those bees!! 🙂

The Sale-A-Bration First Release looks awesome!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There you go!  Hope you enjoyed the peek.  Watch for more on my FB page! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Fall Frenzy!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

First off – it’s hard to think about Fall when it’s 100 outside.  Just sayin’… 😉

I decided another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog was the way to go here – and I figured….why not go with Thanksgiving?  So…I pulled out the new Birds of a Feather stamp set (which covers Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day!) and paired the little turkey with some Come To Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s TGIF Sketch Challenge.

And the colors are from… Sunday Stamps! 🙂

I started with some feather-y Pretty Peacock paper from the Come To Gather DSP (coming in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog on 4 Sept) and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

On a smaller rectangle of Very Vanilla, I stamped the little turkey from Birds of a Feather (avail 4 Sept) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored – her (she’s my turkey and she can be a she if I want to her to be, so… 😉 ) – with my Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends.  Plus my Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Pretty Posy Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped the gobbler again on a second Pretty Peacock design from the Come To Gather DSP and fussy cut just the apron.  Did the same on a Pretty Posy checkered piece of 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and cut out the apron pocket.  I adhered both with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Birds of a Feather sentiment in Pretty Peacock in the bottom corner.  Then I matted it on Crushed Curry and adhered it to the card front.

I pulled out a Tags & Feathers Elements and colored the middle stripe of one with my Pretty Peacock Blend.  Then I adhered it to the panel with Liquid Glue.

A tiny Linen Thread bow and some Pretty Posy 2019-2021 Faceted Dots finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added the Birds of a Feather gobbler in the bottom corner of a Very Vanilla panel and colored her as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another gobbler on the front…

…and some more feathery Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this little image from Birds of a Feather – and it’s so cool that the single set covers so many occasions, don’t you think?  And the Come To Gather DSP is going to be a mainstay for all your Fall projects!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Terry Lynns’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Akiko’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Let It Snowman Season Sneak Peek!

Happy….uhm.  Hmmm.

Wait – don’t tell me.  Let me guess.

Monday?

Yes.  Yes – that’s it.  Happy Monday!

See?  Embracing my retired status like a boss! LOL!

I’ve got a quick and easy, clean and simple sneak peek Christmas Card for you today!  It uses the new Snowman Seasons stamp set and Let It Snow Specialty DSP from the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  And…some really uber-adorable enamel shapes from the new Let it Snow Embellishment Kit.  Take a look-see:

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

I started with some new Let It Snow Specialty DSP (coming on 4 Sept!) in Real Red and matted it on Coastal Cabana for the card front. Next up is a smaller piece of Whisper White – also matted on Coastal Cabana – and then adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut three small squares with the Stitched Shapes Dies in Whisper White and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  In the open space, I stamped a sentiment from the new Snowman Season stamp set (avail on 4 Sept) in Real Red.  Over top, I stamped a snowflake in Coastal Cabana.

I built the three snowmen using pieces from the new (and wonderful!!) Let It Snow Embellishment Kit!

I “built” the snowmen with large “coal” enamel shapes for eyes, “carrots” and…a Shaded Spruce felt scarf (adhered with Liquid Glue).

And…that was it for the card front.  Super quick and super simple!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Snowman Season in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Over top I stamped the snowflakes in Coastal Cabana – stamping twice without re-inking.  In the bottom corner, I added a top hat in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – and colored it with my Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I added more of the enamel shapes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Coastal Cabana mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Coastal Cabana snowflakes on the front…

…and I added some more Let It Snow Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!!  I am completely in love with the entire Let It Snow Suite – in particular the Snowman Season stamp set and Let It Snow DSP! And – the felt and enamel shapes in the Let It Snow Embellishment kit are totes-adorbs!  I hope you like and are adding this suite to your shopping list for the arrival of the 2019 Holiday Catalog on 4 Sept!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Vol 2!

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope your weekend was awesome – and that your week ahead is looking promising.

On Friday – okay and again on Saturday! – I promised the continuation of the 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek.  So….since I’m mostly true to my word, let’s get ‘er done! 🙂

We ended up last week with the Feels Like Frost Suite – so…let’s move into Fall!  There’s a lot of goodness to share so…get comfy!

The Come To Gather Suite is the perfect way to usher in a season of crisp leaves and thanks!

The featured Gather Together stamp set and bundled Gathered Leaves dies go together perfectly – with the dies embossing and cutting at the same time for easy Fall projects!

The final suite in the new catalog is the adorable Spooktacular Bash Suite!  If you love all-things Halloween, then this is the place for you!  The Spooktacular Bash stamp set – with its bundled Ornate Frames Dies – are the perfect accompaniment to the Monster Bash DSP.  Those dies even cut out images in the DSP!  Doesn’t get much easier than that!

Okay – that’s the suites.  Let’s look at some other fun bundles and goodies!

Have you heard that…it’s okay to be Itty Bitty?  Well – it TIS!  Especially if we’re talking about the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle with its Christmas Layers Dies!

The Bells Are Ringing Bundle includes Christmas sentiments and the 11 piece Detailed Bells Dies – perfect for creating stamped and cut bells and boughs and bows!

Do you like snowglobes?  Ever wished you could put one on a card!  Well….you’ll be able to when you use the Still Scenes Bundle – with the Still Scenes stamp set and bundled Snow Globe Scenes Dies.  AND – be sure to pick up a pack of new Snow Globe Shaker Domes – with their handy adhesive strips – and some new Snowflake Sequins.  Snow Globe Shaker card?  Done!!

If you’re an ice skater – or a wanna be ice skater – or…you WATCH ice skating on tv!…then you’re going to love the Free Skate Bundle!

As we segue into the Fall section of the catalog, we come across the Harvest Hellos Bundle!  This is a stamp set (Harvest Hellos) and Punch (Apple Builder) bundle!  Make apples – whole and slices! – and pumpkins!  All with the same bundle!

If you’re looking for a season-spanning bundle, look no further than the To Every Season Bundle!  This one has something for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Christmas and Thanksgiving.  And THIS is a punch bundle, too!  Loves me some punches!! 🙂

Also giving you multi-holiday options is the Tags Tags Tags Bundle!

Okay – if the Spooktacular Bash suite isn’t enough Halloween for you…here’s a wonderfully wicked word die – featured in the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle!

And also in the Halloween theme…check out the uber-cute Boo To You stamp set.  And…there’s GOOGLE-Y EYES!!

Now – I’m not usually a google-y eye person, but…I fully intend to get these and this set!!

Next up in the holiday line-up…New Year’s!  There’s the Cheers To That bundle…

…Sip Sip Hooray – with matching and bundled Sip & Celebrate Dies!

Hang with me – almost there!

We’ve got a couple of truly fun Kits for you!  First up…the All-Inclusive Joy Of Giving Tag Kit! There’s a 17-piece stamp set and even a Poppy Parade Ink Spot and an Acrylic Block.  What a WONDERFUL GIFT for someone (or for yourself!)!!

And there’s the countdown Advent Calendar Project kit, as well!  This one is not all-inclusive, so you’ll need to purchase the “basics” and the Christmas Countdown stamp set separately!  But look what you’ll make!! 🙂

Last up – we’ve got a couple of sweet Host Sets.  Remember that Host sets can only be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards – whcih you can earn either by hosting a workshop or placing an individual order with at least $150 in retail sales!  You could select the Greatest Part of Christmas…

…or the Holiday Haul stamp set!

Stampin’ Up! has also brought back the Be a Difference Maker stamp set for the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  This one is the gorgeous Nature’s Beauty set and for every set purchased, SU! will give $3 to mental health organizations across the country!

PHEW!  That’s a LOT of cool stuff in just 63 pages, isn’t it?  And…folks – this isn’t even ALL the goodies in the catalog!  I cannot WAIT for you to see it in person and begin the true ooh-ing and aah-ing!!

So – to that end, you’re going to want to be sure that YOU are on my list to receive a 2019 Holiday Catalog!  I’ll be ordering them on Thursday and then mailing them out quick as I can get them!  If you’ve ordered from me in the past year (or you’re a member of my Host Club!) – you’re good to go!  If not – head over to my Online Store and place at least a $50 order (which will also have the added bennie of earning you a $5 Bonus Days coupon code to spend in August!) and assure your spot on my Mailing List!

Be sure to check out the HUGE Outlet Finale sale over at Thirty-One!  There’s just a couple more days!

Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek!

Hey ya’ll – well, it’s Friday again!  Looking forward to a weekend.

Will this be the LAST weekend I look forward to?  Since…by this time next week I’ll be mere hours away from being retired?

A good friend told me that – even though she’s retired – she still works during the week – and uses the weekends for chores and fun.

Will I do that?

I don’t know – it doesn’t seem to be the way to alleviate the “Sunday evening blues”, now does it?  I think I want to get to the point where I have to look at my watch to see what day of the week it is!

I guess we’ll see which way it ends up, won’t we?  In the meantime…HAPPY FRIDAY! 🙂

I thought this would be a super good day to bring you some looks at the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  🙂

Now – sorry! – I can’t actually show you pictures of the INSIDE of the catalog.  But I CAN share some pictures of the SAMPLES that are inside the catalog.  So…close! 😉

I thought what I’d do is start with some bundles and suites – there are 25 Bundles (stamp set and dies/punch sets) in this catalog.  Those are wonderful cuz you get a quick 10% savings right off the top!  That means there’s a lot to look at – so….we’ll do about half today and the rest tomorrow!

First up – we’ve got the Toile Tidings Suite – which includes some beautiful DSP and wrapping paper (yes – thinner and 2′ x 3′ in size!).  There are two bundles in this suite: The Toile Christmas Bundle and the Tidings All Around Bundle.

The Tidings All Around Bundle includes the All-Around Wreath Dies – which also coordinates with a Fall-ish stamp set called Seasonal Wreaths.

Next up – we’ve got the So Many Stars Bundle with the So Many Stars Stamp set and Stitched Stars Dies!

I HATE plaid!

Said no one….EVER!

I love plaid and I LOVE the Wrapped in Plaid Suite (and so will you!).  The Designer Series Paper is a handy 6″ x 6″ and has plaid on one side and not-plaid-Christmas-themed designs on the other!  The Perfectly Plaid Bundle includes the stamp set by the same name and the most wunnermus new Pine Tree Punch!

There’s another bundle in that suite called…Peaceful Boughs.  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  You KNOW how I feel about pine trees/boughs/cones!  The Peaceful Boughs stamp set works perfectly with the bundled Beautiful Boughs Dies!


If you liked the Curvy Keepsake Framelits from the past – hang on to your socks!  The Let It Snow Suite includes the Snowman Season Bundle…

…and the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle – with a stamp set and the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies (unlike the previous set – you’ll only have to cut a single piece to create the box – not two!).

The Night Before Christmas Suite includes the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and bundled Jolly Season Dies.  And this suite has the super-cool Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and coordinating Cards & Envelopes (see them in that second picture?)!

One Moose.  Two Mooses….moosies?  Regardless…check out the Merry Moose Bundle with a MERRY MOOSE PUNCH!!!

Here’s the Shine Bright Bundle – with beautiful stars and the Stitched Brightly Dies!

If you’re a fan of non-traditional Christmas colors – think blues and coppers – you’re going to be head-over for the Brightly Gleaming Suite!  With its Christmas Gleaming and bundled Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (yep – TWO punches in the pack) – you’ll be all set!

Now.  Here’s a new bundle that has a really innovative stamp design – that I can’t wait to get my hands on!  The Cup of Christmas stamp set is a photopolymer set with TWO-SIDED stamps!  Stamp one side…

…clean it off and turn it over (as in upside down!) on your block…

…and ink/stamp the reverse image!

Then cut the images with the matching Cup of Cheer Dies!  Cool beans!

The Feels Like Frost Suite is next up and it is smack-your-lips gorgeous!  The Frosted Foliage stamp set and bundled Frosted Frames Dies will coordinate amazeballsingly with the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP – the card front on this first sample is just one of the beautiful designs in the pack!

Okay – I think that’s a good stopping place for now!  We’ll hit the rest of the bundles/suites and a few odds-and-ends tomorrow!

In the meantime – be sure YOU are on my list to receive a 2019 Holiday Catalog!  I’ll be ordering them next week and then mailing them out quick a I can get them!  If you’ve ordered from me in the past year (or you’re a member of my Host Club!) – you’re good to go!  If not – head over to my Online Store and place at least a $50 order (which will also have the added bennie of earning you a $5 Bonus Days coupon code to spend in August!) and assure your spot on my Mailing List!

Hope you liked the little look-see….hold tight for the rest tomorrow! 🙂

Be sure to check out the HUGE Outlet Finale sale over at Thirty-One!

Finn likes to hang with his dad in the shop on nice cool-ish summer days like we’ve had.

Chillaxin….

…or is he guarding??

What is that???  Do you see it??

Wayne and I never saw a thing.

That’s how “they” get you, you know.

Thank goodness he was there to warn the boogers away!
