Sharing a birthday card using Stampin’ Up!’s So Sentimental stamp set.
Yikes, I peeked at July’s calendar! A ton of birthdays popped up! And, two of them take place July 1.
What do you do when you need a bunch of cards in a hurry? You use a sketch, a blank sample, found online or on Pinterest. Then, you fill in the blanks. So easy!
I’m using this current sketch.
So Sentimental Birthday
I grabbed Stampin’ Up”s So Sentimental stamp set and coordinating Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The So Sentimental Bundle is $48.50. Read below to see how you can get it free through June 30.
Here’s what I used to make this quick and easy birthday card, perfect for men and women.
- Calypso Coral card stock base, cut at 5/12 inches by 8 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches
- Playing with Patterns 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, cut at 3 x 4 1/4
- Night of Navy, cut at 3 1/4 x 4 1/2
- Whisper White scrap die cut with label from Stitched So Sweetly
- Night of Navy 1 x 5, trimmed with Banner Triple Punch on each end
- Basic pearls colored with Calypso Coral and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends
This design helped me create a stack of cards to get in the mail.

Welcome to the March Maui Achievers Blog Hop where I’m sharing a Mother’s Day card.
Welcome to our monthly Maui Achievers Blog Hop. We’re a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who have achieved the Stampin’ Up! bonus of the Maui trip. We want to celebrate this achievement by organizing a monthly hop which helps us to continue to inspire you creatively.
You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there’s a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed – so if you’re looking for a demonstrator these are top demonstrators in their country and would love to help you with your Stampin’ Up! shopping or if you’d like to join our Stampin’ Up! teams.
This time of year brings a lot of different events and holiday to celebrate: Easter, graduations, weddings, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. Even though we may not be able to celebrate this events in person at this time, we can definitely send a card. I chose to feature a Mother’s Day card.
Maui Achievers Blog Hop: Mother’s Day Card
I actually made two cards for this hop. I can’t decide which one I like better. Please leave me a comment and let me know which card you prefer. I love, love, love the designs and color scheme of the Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack. And, the coordinating stamp set, Dressed to Impress offers the Mother’s Day sentiment and the pretty flowers. That’s where I started for the inspiration. I found a layout I like and went to work.
All of the Designer Series Paper comes from the same package. It’s fun to see the difference in the card by playing around with the different designs. I stamped the flowers in Stazon ink and colored them with a blender pen and the following colors: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, and Blackberry Bliss.
See a list of the products I used to create these cards at the very end of the post, after the list of blog hoppers. Be sure to visit all of them and leave a comment.

Sharing treat bags using Stampin’ Up!’s So Sentimental stamp set for class this week.
One of the reasons I love being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is sharing the love of creating with rubber stamps, ink, and paper with others. I hold classes here in Mesa, Arizona, as a way to share my love of rubber stamping, make new friends and connections, and build a community of crafters.
For each event I hold, I give participants a different treat or favor. These are some of my favorite things to make! The featured treat today is created using the 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags found on page 33 of the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. You receive 25 bags for just $7. I’ve included some chocolate bars in mine, but there are many items that would fit well in these decorated bags, such as small hand lotions, lipsticks and chapsticks, peanuts, and more.
Here are some of the other Stampin’ Up! ingredients I used for the So Sentimental Treat Bags:
- Yummilicious stamp from the So Sentimental stamp set (page 20-January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
- Stitched So Sweetly Dies (page 20-January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
- Scallop Tag Topper Punch
- Banner Triple Punch
- Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper
- Mint Macaron 1/8-inch Sheer Linen Ribbon
- Stampin’ Write Markers
You’ll notice the image has two different colors? How did I achieve that look? I colored directly onto the stamp using Stampin’ Write markers. It’s so easy, and it lets you have a multi-colored image.
I’ve included a shopping list below. Each graphic will take you directly to my online store.
There’s still time to take advantage of Stampin’ Up!’s best promotion of the year. Choose free product with minimum purchases of $50. Look for a lot of fun items including exclusive stamp sets and Designer Series Paper.
And, good news! New Sale-A-Bration items become available Tuesday, March 3. Watch for a post that day where I’ll include a link to the new brochure. The new offerings include stamp sets, foil Designer Series Paper, and textured vellum.
Just a note: Some items have been so popular and are sold out. If you see something you really want, I encourage you to get it now before it’s gone.
Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to help you with any crafting questions or projects!
