Dragonfly Garden paired with Healing Hugs Stamp Set

                    

  • Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set
  • Coordinating Dragonflies Punch from the Dragonfly Garden Bundle
  • January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and SAB are on the way
I decided to combine the new Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set with the Healing Hugs Stamp Set to make today's card.  I used Bermuda Bay ink to stamp flowers, dragonflies and sentiment, plus I decorated the envelope with one of the stamps from the Dragonfly Garden.  Beginning 1 December 2020 Demonstrators can order Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set with their preorder from the January-June 2021 Mini catalog, a perk for being a Demonstrator.  On January 5 customers can order from the new catalog.  I love pairing Stampin' Up! Stamps together to create lovely cards.

The cards today have different orientations, but use the same color combinations, stamps and both use the new Dragon Flies Punch with images from the Dragonfly Garden.  The basecard is Thick Whisper White.  Then a layer of Bermuda Bay cardstock, and the image layer is Whisper White.

The large flower from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set is stamped in each of the four corners.  On the vertical card, I stamped the flowers full strength.  On the horizontally oriented card I stamped the flowers off first, which I thought would make the dragonflies pop more, but in the end, I think I like the full-strength flowers on the vertical card best.  I then stamped one of the Dragonfly Garden images in Bermuda Bay and punched it out using the Dragonflies Punch.  Because the punch punches both large and small dragonflies at the same time, I was careful to only punch one  large dragonfly at a time.

I added  sentiments from the Dragonfly Garden stamped in Bermuda Bay ink again.  I used two different die cut shapes.  The horizontal card uses a die cut from the Tasteful Labels Dies.  I hand cut a Bermuda Bay mat to fit behind the label.    The vertical card uses a scalloped rectangle from the Stitched so sweetly Dies.  The Dragonflies and the sentiments labels are mounted on Dimensionals. To add a little bling,  I added 3/8" Pool Party Sheer Ribbon to one card and scattered a few Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems onto each card.

The Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set is another of the many selections you'll see in the upcoming 2021 January-June Mini Catalog.  If you're a crafter, you'll want to add items from the upcoming 2021 catalogs to your Wish List and place your order right away on 5 January 2020.   

Items from the current catalog items and a Christmas Gift Certificate to purchase your new favorites when the January-June Mini Catalog arrives would make a great holiday gift.  Contact me if you need a gift certificate. You can set up a Favorites List right on my Stampin' Up! site for current catalog items. And when you are ready, you can place an order directly on line.  Or, down load a Shopping List today, then contact me when you're ready for more creative ideas and to purchase new craft supplies.

If you live in the USA and don't have a demonstrator and want a copy of the upcoming 2021 mini catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure  contact me. I'll be pacing an order for new catalogs December 1, and I'm having Stampin' Up! mail catalogs directly to my customers who allowed me to add you to my mailing lists when you purchased within the past 6 months.

New catalogs coming January 2021





I've placed an order for new catalogs for my customers who have purchased from me in the past 6 months and you will receive them towards the end of December. You'll receive both the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. 

Unfortunately, when Stampin' Up! changed their customer ordering system earlier this year, if you did not sign up to receive mailings from Stampin' Up!, I can no longer send you mailing, as the system doesn't allow me to see your address in the system.  Please log into your account on the Stampin' Up! site and ensure that you have indicated that you will receive mailings from Stampin' Up!, so that new catalogs can be mailed to you.   Then, contact me so I'm alerted to the change and can send you new catalogs.

If you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, and you would like to receive a new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and a Sale-A-Bration Brochure, contact me before November 30 so I can have catalogs sent directly to you.  You'll receive the new catalogs towards the end of December, ready for customer purchases 5 January 2021.  Contact me today for your copy.

Thanksgiving Treats created from the September Hello Pumpkin Paper Pumpkin Kit

                        

  • Thanksgiving treats using September Hello Pumpkin Paper Pumpkin Kit
  • One Day Online Extravaganza Extended Event Ending Soon
  • The majority of Annual Catalog products 10% off 25 November 2020

I've been working on a few fun Thanksgiving treats, using the remainders of my September Hello Pumpkin Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I used the majority for Halloween and when I realized how many additional pieces the kit included, I decided to use some for Thanksgiving as well.  I started by sorting the numerous fall-themed die cuts.  Wow!  What a large stash of die cuts...all in perfect fall colors.  The supplies make 20 cracker box treat packages.  I used the extra pumpkin , leaves, and Happy Thanksgiving sentiment from the Banner Year Stamp Set to create a fun set of treats to add to my Thanksgiving place setting.  

Thanksgiving Treat Holders made with Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin



I added four Hershey's Nuggets inside as a little treat, but lip balm is a great food alternative.  I also found some small travel containers that could be filled with hand sanitizer that would work as well.  

The best decision I made during January 2020 was to order a 12 month subscription to Paper Pumpkin.  I love receiving a different kit each month.  Although I love the creative process of developing my own ideas for projects, I find that these once-a month all inclusive kits give me a break when I'm particularly busy, but still want to give a hand made item.  Be sure to order your upcoming Paper Pumpkin kits by the 10th of each month or order a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month subscription.     

Save 10% on Annual Catalog products ending soon



10% off most Annual Catalog items SALE has been extended, but you have only a few hours remaining to take advantage of this sale.  Due to some order placement problems on the Stampin' Up! site on 24 September, the Merry & Bright Online Extravaganza event was extended another 24 hours.    Place your orders today, Wednesday, 25 November 2020, to save 10% on many Annual Catalog items.    






Christmas countdown has begun, and you've probably got a long wish list of paper crafting projects you want to complete for the Holidays.  Create some handmade d├ęcor, or prep a few scrapbook pages. Perhaps you want a card kit of general greeting cards to keep on hand.  Or maybe its time to finish those Christmas cards with that special set of dies or stamp and dies bundle you've had on your wish list for a while.  Handmade items add a personal touch to the holidays and make the season even more meaningful and fun. 

Here are some of my favorites you might want to consider to extend your craft supplies.  Most bundles are 10% off.  Pick up the Jar Of Flowers, shaker domes and gems to make fun shaker cards.  It's a great time to pick up some In-Color Blends or to complete your collection of the new-style ink pads, or perhaps its time to upgrade to the newest Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer yet.  Maybe you just want a few more clear blocks, or treat yourself to the full set of Clear Blocks. Ow whatever you've had on your Wish List.  Give yourself an early Christmas gift!
