Stampin'; Up! Blushing Bride Dragonfly

  • Blushing Bride Dragonfly
  • Preparing for Shreveport OnStage Event April 8
  • Retiring List announcement April 10

Sweet Sugarplum Glitter Ribbon

I found some Sweet Sugarplum Glitter Ribbon from the Holiday catalog among my ribbon stash.  As I fingered its soft, pliable surface, I held it up to some Blushing Bride cardstock and Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and decided it was too nice to let this lovely ribbon languish among my retired ribbons.   

I quickly put together this card using papers from the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper pack and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies.   The sentiment oval is Very Vanilla and Hello is stamped in Old Olive, which is one of the soft colors in the Falling in Love DSP.            

The sentiment is from the Flourishing Phrases, one of my go-to sets for sentiments.   The Very Vanilla oval is cut using the Stitched Shaped Framelit Dies.

The dragonflies are popped up on dimensionals to finish this card. This was a fast card to make, which I rushed to completed as I still need to finish swaps and pack for Shreveport OnStage event.    


Stamp:  Flourishing Phrases
Ink:  Old Olive
Paper: Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper,  Falling In Love Designer Series Paper
Accessories:   3/8" Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack (retired from the Holiday Catalog), ,  Stitched Shapes Framelit dies, Big Shot, Big Shot Cutting Pads, Stampin' Scrub, Stampin' Mist, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals

I'm glad today's card came together quickly as I'm finishing swaps for the  Stampin' Up!OnStage event, April 8.  Some of the swaps are these cute Bunny Buddies Paper Pumpkin kit.  This is an alternative idea for using the little cards included in the kit.

I stamped the bunny images so the fold was at the top of the card and could be used as a topper for the 2 " X 8" (141703) Cellophane Bags.  I filled the Cellophane bags  jelly beans, folded over the top, stapled the cellophane bags shut and then glued them inside the Bunny Buddies  bag toppers with Fast Fuse.  I'm head to the Shreveport OnStage tomorrow, so I better get packing!

April 8 - Demonstrators attending OnStage will see the new catalog coming out June 1, demos of new sets, display boards with samples for using new sets, and we'll likely get to order some of the new sets early at an additional discount.  We'll also stamp some samples with new sets, and Prize Patrol means we'll likely receive a few free sets while we're at the event.  I'm already jumping up and down.  I love getting new stamps!!  And I love free stamps even more!

April 10 - Retiring list released
Many retiring items will sell out quickly.  If you plan to order In Color reinkers for your retiring In Color stamp pads, think about ordering now or within a few hours of the Retiring List release on April 10.   I always get a call about a week after the In Colors have sold out from someone who waited too long to order their favorite retiring In Color and we spend hours on line looking for someone who happened to order an extra reinker. 

Here are the item numbers you'll need to place an order for 2015-2017 In Color items that will retire:

April 13 - Demonstrators who didn't attend OnStage on April 8  will find many of the videos from the event  available April 13.  Stampin' Up! will post videos at the OnStage Online link on the demonstrator-only site.

Demonstrators will want to plan now to attend the November 11 OnStage, the next event, to gain early access to upcoming catalogs, get free stamps, and order early with OnStage discounts only available to OnStage live attendees.

Stampin' Up Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper fiend card

  • Glimmer Paper friend card
  • March 12 class announced
  • Sale-A-Bration free gifts ends March 31

Stampin' Up! Glimmer Paper

I love today's card.  It uses the Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper from the 6 X 6" Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack, a free Sale-A-Bration selection with a $50 order.  But only until the end of the month.           

I paired the Macaron Glimmer paper with Mint Macaron cardstock and one of the paper from the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper...and it turned out just yummy!  I also used the Mint Macaron 3/8" Sheer Linen Ribbon and used one of the Layering Oval Framelits to mount the Whisper White sentiment.  

As long as I had everything cut, I also tried other sentiments with the same card layout.  It worked with the "Enjoy" sentiment and the Easter sentiment, also from the Suite Sentiments stamp set.  I also used the "Hoping Your Day is Perfect" sentiment from this same set on the inside of the card. This is one of the most versatile sentiments sets I've seen from Stampin' Up!  

The photo below shows the Easter sentiment.  The die used to cut the Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper is the So Detailed die from the Occasions catalog, one of my favorites from the Occasions catalog. I also found that when you remove the chads from this die, if you look through them, you'll find a few heart shapes that I used to decorate the inside of the card.

I cased this card from Jeanie Stark and I think she did an outstanding job selecting colors and layout for this card.
