Did you know a brand-new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog is on the way soon? As a customer, you can order from it beginning May 3, 2022. That seems a long time to wait, doesn’t it?
In the meantime, Stampin’ Up! is offering a sneak peek of a bundle from the upcoming catalog. The Waves of Inspiration Bundle. This bundle ($51.25) — Waves of Inspiration stamp set and Waves Dies — is available for purchase now and will also be available in the new catalog.
In addition to this stamp set and dies, you can get your hands on some beautiful coordinating Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper, Blue Foils Specialty Paper, and Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels. These are available only while supplies last.
Purchase the entire Waves of the Ocean Collection for $79.25.

Products Used to Create These Cards

I love Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration sale! When I first began stamping, I saved my Christmas cash and birthday money. I splurged during Sale-A-Bration and earned all of the offerings as well as the hostess sets. In past years, this sale occurred just once a year. Now, it’s two times each year. Two times to earn free paper crafting products with minimum orders. That’s exciting!
Last week, I played with the Counting Sheep stamp set and Sheep Dies. See that post here. This week, I focus on the Delicate Dahlias stamp set. It’s so gorgeous. The sentiments work perfectly for a variety of occasions. Grab this set free with a $100 purchase (before tax and shipping).
The card above also features the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper (available free with a $50 order before tax and shipping).
Here’s a closer look at the stamp set.

Are you a beginning stamper with just a few supplies? Do you love the art and craft of rubber stamping but just don’t have a lot of time? Are you short of space and can only store limited stamps? Do you need a quick and easy, clean and simple card?
What is #simplestamping?
Stampin’ Up!’s #simplestamping is for you! It focuses on using just rubber stamps, ink, and paper to create quick, easy, and cute handmade greeting cards.
Each month, Stampin’ Up! issues demonstrators a challenge. This month: Employ the #simplestamping technique with your favorite retiring product in a thank-you card format.
I have a lot of favorites retiring from Stampin’ Up’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. (A new catalog debuts May 4. To make room for new goodies, some things have to go.) But one I’ve used a lot is Rooted in Nature. It includes a host of tree and nature images and features versatile sentiments.
(To browse the list of retiring items and those discounted, click here and then click on Specials and Last Chance Product List.)
This stamp set is slated to retire; it’s not available after May 3 (or while supplies last). Enjoy these card samples. They go together quickly, especially when using Stampin’ Up!’s Very Vanilla Notecards and Envelopes. Already cut and scored, you receive 20 cards and envelopes for $7. Just add stamps, ink, and paper.
Rooted in Nature #simplestamping Cards
For these cards, I used:
- Pieces from the In Good Taste 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. I love the wood grain designs featured on some of the sheets.
- Early Espresso ink and card stock and Garden Green ink and card stock
- Very Vanilla Notecards and Envelopes
With this technique, you can make a set of cards quickly and easily. Send them out or package them up and give them as gifts.
Be sure to view the video below (a Facebook live replay) to see how these cards go together.
To see a more intricate card using this stamp set and the coordinating Nature’s Root Dies, see this post.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if I can help you on your paper crafting journey.

A Basset Hound Named Max
An old scrapbook page featuring our dog Max and our son.
Almost twenty years ago, a puppy we named Max joined our family. We felt lucky to have him with us for more than 10 years. He was oh so cute, but he could be oh so naughty! More than once, he stole food items off of the kitchen counter such as sticks of butter, loaves of bread, and even tomatoes. Weighing in at more than 50 pounds, he thought he was a lap dog! Max left us about 12 years ago, but we talk about him often.
So, I’m partial to any dog-related stamp set or Designer Series Paper or embellishments. I love Stampin’ Up!’s new Playful Pets Suite. (No worries if you’re a cat lover. Cats are represented in this set, as well!)
Playful Pets Suite
This suite offers a host of fun elements I used to create today’s card:
- Pampered Pets Stamp Set
- Playful Pets Designer Series Paper
- Pets Dies
- Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack
- Playful Pets Trinkets
Everything about this suite is super cute! A fun feature of the Designer Series Paper and dies is that the dies not only cut the stamped dog image but also the images on the Designer Series Paper. You can see that I used the dog image from the paper on this card. The same holds true for the cat images. Remember, when you purchase the stamp set and dies together, you receive a 10 percent discount on the bundle.
I also embossed the Real Red card stock front of the card with the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder and added one of the Stitched Nested Labels.
Thanks for stopping by today. Let me know if you have questions about today’s card or any other paper crafting concern.
Below is a list of all the awesome stampers participating in the blog hop today.
