Easy Peasy Valentine

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
As paper crafters, we often think for a card to be beautiful, it must have more layers, more colors, more ribbon, or more embellishment.
 
But, there is joy in simplicity. Card making doesn’t haven’t to be complicated or difficult. Sometimes, all you need is rubber stamps, ink, and paper.
 
I’ve accomplished that here with this card: Stampin’ Up!’s Meant to Be and Forever Lovely stamp sets, Lovely Lipstick ink pad, and Whisper White note cards (you get 20 pre-cut and scored cards and envelopes for just $6.50).
 
I began by inking the heart with the Lovely Lipstick and stamping it in the middle of the note card. Without reinking, I stamped the heart again, overlapping a bit with the first stamped image. I then repeated this across the page. I added the sentiment, and I’m done.
 
Voila! Easy-peasy!
 
I hope you’re inspired to give this a try. Click on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store to purchase the products I used for this card.
 
Thanks for stopping by today!

Join the fun!

Hello Stampers!
 
There are a lot of reasons I recommend getting Stampin’ Up!’s starter kit, also known as the ultimate bundle. During Sale-A-Bration, not only do you get to choose $175 worth of ANY products (shipped to you free of charge) for $99, you receive a minimum 20 percent discount on your future purchases—at least through July 31. If you have a long wish list, this is a great option for you.
 
The discounts and resources are awesome, but another benefit is belonging to a team of other stampers who share your love of paper crafting! Pictured above are the women from my team (Kim’s Paper Krafters) who attended Stampin’ Up!’s 30th anniversary celebration held in Orlando in November. We saw stamping presentations, played with new products, swapped with other stampers, learned some business basics, and jut had fun being together—with more than 5,000 other demonstrators from throughout the world.
 
These ladies came from Knoxville, Tennessee; Tucson, Arizona; Aurora, Colorado; Pawnee City, Nebraska; and Lincoln, Nebraska, to be a part of this exciting experience. I’d love to share this opportunity with you!
 
The special I mentioned above is good through March 31. And, there’s another really cool option. For $129, choose $175 worth of product AND receive Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive Craft and Carry Tote Bag. (See the picture below.) I know I’m love bags, and this was specially designed for crafting. The only way to get the tote is to buy Stampin’ Up!’s starter kit ($129).
 
When you purchase the Stampin’ Up! starter kit, there’s no risk nor obligation. You’re not required to host parties or workshops. Just enjoy your discount! You can sign up here or contact me if you’d like to chat.
 
I’ve been a demonstrator for more than eight years. I joined because there was a special on the starter kit, and I loved the idea of a discount. Now, eight years later, it’s been so much more. I’ve been able to share my love of paper crafting with others. I’ve been able to send gratitude and spread cheer through my handmade cards. And, I’ve been introduced to a whole group of awesome people I would never have met. Won’t you join me?

So Hoppy Together!

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
Like I mentioned in my previous post, there is so much to love about this year’s Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration. Remember, you earn a free product of your choice from the catalog for purchases totaling $50 and $100 (before tax and shipping). There are a lot of fun choices: from exclusive stamp sets, to a five-pack of organdy ribbon, to Designer Series Paper, foil paper, and more.
 
This cute frog belongs to the exclusive set So Hoppy Together, and it is one of the free choices for a $50 order.
 
I complemented that stamp set with a couple of products from the Annual Catalog: The Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper and the sentiment from the Best Bunny stamp set. It’s fun to use some of the products I already have to create a new and unique card.I’ve already sent this card to my aunt who has had some health issues.
 
I colored the frog with the Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends and layered him with punches.
 
Sale-A-Bration runs through March 31, so be sure to plan to get some free items to add to your crafting stash.
 
Please let me know if you have questions about today’s card. To see the products I used to make this card, see the graphics below. Clicking on any one of them will take you directly to my online Stampin’ Up! store.

Rustic Rooster

Hello Stampers!
 
Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration is here, and there’s so much to love about the free choices. (Receive your choice of a free product from this special catalog for purchases of $50 and $100 – before taxes.)
 
Today’s card uses two free products: the Home to Roost stamp set and the Grapefruit Grove/Lovely Lipstick Foil Paper (four sheets of each color).
 
Don’t you just love this Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets? I embossed the panel with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. This folder, which looks just like an old-time tin ceiling, was introduced in Stampin’ Up!’s Catalog. It’s being carried over, so it’s still available for purchase.
 
I colored the rooster using the Stampin’ Blend colors of Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze and Smoky Slate.
 
The Sale-A-Bration promotion goes on through March 31. Be sure to take the opportunity to earn a variety of free products with a minimum purchase.

Meant to Be Valentine’s Day

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
It’s time to start designing and making our Valentine cards! I’m loving the new products in Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalog to create my cards.
 
I started with a Lovely Lipstick card stock base and a piece of Whisper White card stock (5 ¼ x 4). I used a small strip (5 ¼ x 1 3/4) of All My Love Designer Series Paper on the front, as well as a sliver of the oh-so-pretty Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets.
 
With the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, I cut a small heart from the foil sheet. (Quick tip: I die cut the heart and the scallop circle at the same time. It saves paper, and you can’t tell the heart came from the center of the circle.)  The sentiment can about found in the Meant to Be stamp set.
 
When you purchase the Meant to Be stamp set and Be Mine Stitched Framelits dies together, you receive a 10 percent discount. I love that this bundle can be used year-round for weddings and anniversaries, too.
 
The luscious Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets can be earned free during Sale-A-Bration. You get eight sheets – four sheets of Lovely Lipstick and four sheets of Grapefruit Grove.
 
What is Sale-A-Bration? It is Stampin’ Up!’s most fun sale of the year. Now through March 31, receive your choice of a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure for each $50 or $100 purchase (before tax and shipping). Choose from a great selection of exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, ribbon pack, framelits and more. This is a great way to stock up on what you need and love and get something free at the same time.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.
