Since moving to Mesa, Arizona, three months ago, I’ve been attending a variety of networking meetings to meet new people and make new connections. I was introduced to this group about two months ago — O.N.E. Networking. It’s a fun group of business people and entrepreneurs who meet weekly to get to know each other, build relationships, and do business together when it makes sense.
I had an opportunity to present Tuesday. Instead of talking for 15 minutes, I brought a stamping project for eighteen! With help from two assistants (who are experienced stampers), we each created a treat packet with Stampin’ Up! inks, stamps, punches, and paper. And, I included chocolate!
It was such a fun morning! Everyone participated and were proud to create something handmade.
I am thankful to this group for their friendships and their willingness to try something new.
Happy Thanksgiving to all! Enjoy your time with family and friends!

Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage Bundle
Here are a few details/features of my card:
- I used Stampin’ Up! Silver Foil Sheets to die cut the gears piece. It makes such a great background.
- I embossed the Night of Navy Card Stock with the Sublte Embossing Folder before using the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to create a frame.
- I used a piece of the 6 x 6 Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper (available in the Brights Collection package) as a background paper.
- I used Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to color the car.
- The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings. It’s punched with the Classic Label Punch and then trimmed to fit in the corner.
- I finished the card off with a piece of Night of Navy Baker’s Twine.
Please let me know if you have questions. I’d be glad to help! Be sure to visit all of the other stampers on the hop today!

Gingham Gala and Delightful Daisy
If i was forced to choose a favorite product from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog, I think I would choose the 6 x 6 Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. This paper pack — featuring Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist, Grapefruit Grove, and Balmy Blue — is just perfect for a variety of cards and projects. Here, I used the Daisy Punch to create the daisies from the Gingham Gala paper.
It’s important to note that this great paper won’t be available after June 3 (or while supplies last). It’s only $11 for 40 sheets of paper.
Other fun elements included on this card include the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies, the greeting from Itty Bitty Birthdays, and the Subtles Embossing Folder.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’m off on a little vacay with my family! So, I’m giving you a special offer. Free shipping on orders of $25 and more from May 3 through May 12.
Go to my online store:kimquade.stampinup.net and order using host code: XJCDGAVP.

Just a quick note: It’s possible Stampin’ Up! will offer some of the last-chance, retiring products at a discount at some point during the week. Our initial email suggested it could occur May 9. I don’t know the status of WiFi and internet availability, so if you see something you want, scoop it up! (I may or may not be able to help you place your order in a timely manner.)
This offer is good only through me.
Stampin’ Up! May Baskets
Do any of you remember May Day? Did you bring treat baskets to the neighbors’ houses, ring the bell, and run? I’m not sure if anyone even does that anymore! I’ve made these for a class and have a few leftover for our neighbors. I’ll ring the bell, but I probably won’t run!
I used Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Cups available in the Occasions Catalog. You get ten cups for $8.50. These will be retiring, so you’ll want to grab a package a two. They’re very fun to decorate for a variety of occasions. A couple of months ago, I made one for dog treats. See that post here.
I added a handle using a strip of Pineapple Punch card stock measuring 8 1/2 inches by 3/4 inches. I glued that strip to the inside of the cup using Tombow Glue. The Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper worked well for the May Day theme. I used the template provided by Stampin’ Up! I’d love to send one via email, if you’re interested. Then, just fill and deliver!
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy May Day! To see a list of products used, scroll to the bottom of this post. Each photo takes you directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.
