Stampin’ Up! Please As Punch Designer Series Paper

My Card

The card I’m sharing today uses the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper. It’s part of Stampin’ Up!’s Coordination Product Release. This is a limited-time release. It’s 12 sheets of patterned paper: 3 each of 4 double-sided designs–umbrellas, hearts, flowers, and tulips. All of the designs coordinate with one of Stampin’ Up!’s current punches. This makes card making so easy! The coordinating colors are Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, and Whisper White.

Here are some of the ingredients I used:

  • Whisper White card base
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Gorgeous Grape card stock
  • 6 x 6 Brights Collection Designer Series Paper
  • Pleased as Punch Designer Series
  • Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set
  • Gorgeous Grape ink pad

Piece of Cake Birthday Card

I’m sharing another card I received during my birthday month! This one came from Karen Page and uses Stampin’ Up!’s Piece of Cake stamp (found in the Annual Catalog on page 64). It’s paired with the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper (found in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog).

For the details on the Piece of Cake birthday card, see Karen’s post here.

If you look closely, you can see this card uses an item that can be earned free during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration sale. It’s the So Saffron Metallic Baker’s Twine. (This free gift with purchase includes two rolls of sparkly baker’s twine and sequins).

Flamingos for My Birthday

Flamingos for My Birthday

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Bundle

Flamingos for My Birthday!

I’ve been celebrating my birthday for a couple of weeks now! I received so many fun cards in the mail. This card came from friend and teammate Ginger Borneman. She’s all too familiar with my love of flamingos so she used them for my birthday card.

When I first got a look at Stampin’ Up!’s Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper, I knew I was going to purchase more than just one package. (I’m going to have to do some trading to get extra sheets of the pages with the flamingo design!) This awesome paper can be found in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog on pages 38-40.

But, even though I grew up in and lived in landlocked states, I’ve had a love of everything tropical for a few years. The Tropical Oasis Suite just speaks to me–from the palm trees to the hibiscus to the palm fronds and more–and especially the flamingos.

Here’s a link to see everything that’s included in the suite: https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/products/101023/tropical-oasis

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Suite

When you purchase the Timeless Tropical stamp set with coordinating In the Tropics Dies as a bundle (you receive a 10 percent discount when you purchase them together) and add in the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper, you qualify to receive one FREE Sale-A-Bration item. Choose from exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, a card kit, a flower punch, and more. These are great items to add to your crafting collection.

Thanks to everyone who sent cards, text messages, and email to help me celebrate my birthday. I’ll be featuring several other cards throughout the next few weeks. I know a lot of talented people!

Thanks for stopping by today. Look below to see a list of products Ginger used to create this card.

Little Ladybug Birthday Celebration

Stampin' Up! Little Ladybug

Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug

It’s a Little Ladybug Birthday! I celebrated a birthday last week, and I’ve been so fortunate to have received a mailbox full of cards (and they’re still arriving)! Many of the cards have come from my many stamping friends. I can’t wait to open the envelope and see what they’ve created.

This card, created by friend and team member, Beth Doty, uses a variety of Stampin’ Up! products. It’s also a fun fold card. Be sure to see the photos below of the card in several open stages. I especially want to call attention to the ladybug featured here. This stamp, the sentiment, and the images inside can be found in the Little Ladybug stamp set. It’s available during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration promotion. Receive it free with a $300 order.

What’s even more fun are the coordinating Ladybug Dies (153588). They are available for purchase today for $29 (along with a host of other coordination products). See the flyer here. And here.

Here’s a picture of the dies.
