Rise and Shine

Saturday, March 28th, 2020

This Rise & Shine set is from the 2nd Sale-A-Bration Release. I can’t believe Sale-A-Bration is ending in just a few days! (ends March 31, 2020). This fun stamp set has 15 stamps, but five of those are reversible so there are actually 20 images available! The Cup of Cheer dies from the Holiday Catalog are still available for purchase – and they easily cut the mugs out for you – so helpful.

I chose the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (page 9 of the Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog) for my background, and my color palate of Real Red and Flirty Flamingo.

As you can see here, the second cup is raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

If you haven’t looked over the new items available as FREE gifts with purchase for Sale-A-Bration – click HERE to review what is available before this awesome promotion ends on March 31st.

Of course, the BEST deal that will be ending on March 31st is the Starter Kit – for just $99 you can choose up to $125 of products – your choice – PLUS an extra FREE stamp set PLUS an exlcusive Mini Trimmer (only available with this kit) PLUS a sampler pack of Designer Series Papers PLUS free shipping! It is such a great value – PLUS your’ll get to enjoy at least 20% off your future orders while your demonstratorship remains active.

Thank you for stopping by. Please let me know if you have any questions or I can help with any supplies. All supplies used on this card are linked below.

Sending you sunshine and smiles,

Hello Sunshine

Monday, March 16th, 2020

This sweet card features the Under My Umbrella Bundle and the new Very Vellum Specialty DSP (2nd Release of Sale-A-Bration, this month only!). Under my Umbrella stamp set and coordinating Umbrella Builder Punch can be found on page 42 of the Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog.

The circles are both cut using the Stitched Shapes Dies (a must have in my stamping arsenal). The textured vellum is one of the new Sale A Bration choices this month. Hard to believe Sale-A-Bration is almost over. This pack of vellum (FREE with a $50 order – ends March 31st) comes in 3 colors – 2 sheets each. You’ll have lots of fun creating with this embossed vellum, don’t miss out.

Don’t you just love the mixed font in the sentiment? I sure do. I punched the umbrella out twice (Rococo Rose Cardstock) so I could ‘sandwich’ the umbrella handle in between, for a cleaner look. An Aqua Painter and my inkpads made for quick coloring – no fuss.

The seam binding ribbon is retired, but it was Pool Party so I couldn’t resist. And my usual finishing touch is a few Rhinestones for bling. I used the Holiday Rhinestones here.

Reminders:

Keep in mind Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st. New items were recently added as the 2nd Release of Sale A Bration! You can find all the current promotions on my website here :

If you are in the Ukiah area I’d love you to join me for a Stamp Class featuring the Sale-A-Bration 2nd release – on Sunday March 22nd. You can RSVP HERE.

Heartfelt Bundle

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

The Heartfelt Bundle in the Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog is great to use year round, not just for Valentines. On this card I used the very fun Detailed Hearts Die for a tone on tone subtle background element. I am in love with this die!

My focal image is actually stamped directly onto From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (with beautiful red and pink foil accents!) and punched out with the coordinating Heart Punch Pack.

I hope you will take a look at the whole From My Heart Suite (pages 8-12 of the Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog)

Hey Lady

Wednesday, March 4th, 2020

This darling “Little Ladybug” stamp set is a host only option during Sale A Bration – it is oh so cute and absolutely FREE for qualifying orders of $300 (combined class sales, or a nice big wish list). I kept this card clean and simple with just a dash of color.

Starting with a card base of Thick Whisper White, the main image is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so the flower could be colored with Stampin Blends (Light & Dark Petal Pink, Old Olive for leaves) on Whisper White Cardstock. The Paper along the left side and the little bit of red and pink striped paper are both from the From My Heart Designer Series Paper (Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog)

Just a bit of Real Red ink and my Aqua Painter allowed for quick coloring of her wings…. but honestly I think my favorite image in this set is the line of up 4 adorable tiny ladybugs 🙂 I added them to the inside of my card and to the envelope flap – just the cutest!

Keep in mind Sale A Bration ends on March 31st. Yesterday (March 3rd) new items were added as the 2nd Release of Sale A Bration! You can find all the current promotions on my website here :

Note Pad Holder

Sunday, March 1st, 2020

This was a fun project to work on, I made several of these note pad holders in December and January as thank you gifts. I referenced several crafters to come up with the format I liked, but I don’t recall all my sources, as I combined several.

The base (Poppy Parade Card Stock) begins with a half sheet (4.25 x 11) scored at 3, 6 3/8, 6 7/8, and 7 3/8 inches. My measurements are slightly different than others you’ll find online because my pens were too fat 🙂

Cut a diagonal strip off of the left side (the 3 inch section) to form the front inside pouch (a nice place to slide in a business card).

I chose to decorate mine with the beautiful Designer Papers from the Christmastime is Here Suite – which by the way is still available! The artwork on the front is from the stamp set called “It Starts with Art”

I used 3×3 sticky note pads, but this format could hold a pad up to 3×4.

Here you can see the pen loop section

I hope you’ll give these fun projects a try. If you would like more detailed instructions send me an email and I’ll be happy to provide that for you.

And, before I sign off I want to show you the Christmas Cards I made using the Christmastime is Here suite.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Butterfly Gala Card and September Host Code

Sunday, September 1st, 2019

September First – time for a new Host Code Special. The Host Code for September is MVT9P3KG – this code is valid through September 28th. If you place an order using this code I’ll send you a free gift next month – the Assorted Googly Eyes from the Holiday Catalog. For more info on how to use the Host Code click HERE.

This card above uses the beautiful stamp set called Butterfly Gala. There are four pairs of butterfly designs and a solid background stamp for the butterflies. They coordinate with the Butterfly Duet Punch for a quick and easy way to stamp, adorn and cut out 2 butterflies at a time (large and small). I am also in love with the mixed font sentiments in the set. I think you will love it too.

This design shows 3 different ways to use the butterfly image – top left is stamped directly on the card, detail image only, no background color. The small center butterfly is stamped with both layers and punched out, and the bottom right butterfly is stamped with both layers, punched, and placed on top of another butterfly punched (not stamped) from Flirty Flamingo cardstock. You will note I accidentally used Flirty Flamingo & Grapefruit Grove ink – by mistake – but I’m not mad and the result 🙂

The enamel dots are retired, but there are other options in our current catalog.

We are just a few days away from the Holiday Catalog going live! (starts September 4th) If you placed an order with me in the past few months you will have already received your catalog in the mail from me. If not, send me an email and I’ll get one out to you within the week. Beginning September 4th you can also view the catalog from my website (see the “catalog” tab)

Shopping starts on September 4th!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying a lovely 3 day Labor Day Weekend.

Sending you sunshine and smiles,

Susie
