Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek at the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies

  • A Sneak Peek at the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies
  • Lovely prints from the All My Love Designer Series Paper
  • Paper Pumpkin and Animal Expedition team up for Valentines

Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies 

I know, I know.  It's not even Christmas,so what am I doing showing Valentine's Cards already.  Because demonstrators can pre-order from the upcoming catalogs, I'm just too excited to wait to show you some of the new items coming your way in January from the Spring Occasions catalog.  What I'm showing today is the new All My Love Designer Series Paper, Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, and the sentiment is from the Forever Lovely stamp set.  You'll see them all in the new Occasions catalog, which will show up in your mail box towards the end of December if you're a customer of mine. If don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and you need the upcoming catalogs, just let me know.   

The card today uses a Crumb Cake cardstock base.  Then a layer of Powder Pink.  And then a layer of the All My Love Designer Series Paper.    

I used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to create the two hearts.  The one on the left is Lovely Lipstick, and the one on the right is Pink Powder.  If you look closely, you can see the stitches on the Powder Pink heart.  This die set includes 16 dies, but several of the dies cut frames only, like the Power Pink die on my card.  When you cut this heart-shaped, stitched frame, you also cut a heart from the center, meaning your die does double duty.   I haven't begun to use all of the possible heart shapes created by this wonderful die set.    

The sentiment shape is a die cut from the Lakeside Framelit Dies.  The sentiment is from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set, and the sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink.  A Red Rhinestone accents the end of the sentiment label.

The ribbon is the 3/8" Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon from the Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  It is so lovely in real life. The entire All My Love Suite from the new Spring Occasions catalog will create cards not only for Valentine's Day, but Weddings, Anniversaries, and any time you want to let someone you love know you are thinking about them.


  • Stamps: Forever Lovely (sentiment)
  • Ink:  Lovely Lipstick
  • Paper:  Crumb Cake, Powder Pink, Lovely Lipstick, All My Love Designer Series Paper
  • Accessories:   Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, Lakeside Framelit Dies, Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels, 3/8" Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon, Big Shot, Mini Dimensional 

Year-End Closeouts sale through January 2, 2019

Want to know which Holiday Catalog items will carry over after January 2?  Download a pdf copy of the Holiday carryover list here.  Pay particular attention to the bundles in the current Holiday catalog that you're thinking about purchasing for next year.  Buy them before January 2, because the bundle price -- a 10% savings -- goes away at on January 2.  You'll still be able to purchase these carryover items after January 2, but you'll no longer get the 10% savings for purchasing them as a bundle.  

You'll also want to stretch your holiday budget by purchasing discounted merchandise now, while supplies last.   A few surplus items from the annual catalog are also included in this sale.    

This is also a great time to pick up your retiring favorites from the Holiday catalog that will go away January 2.

If you're like me, in addition to a list of the Holiday catalog carryover list, you want a complete list of the retiring Holiday catalog items so you can mark up your Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog for easier reference.  Here's a pdf of the Full Year-End Closeout list, including which items are discounted.

    Occasions sneak peek at OnStage

    So much has happened over the past few weeks!  Over November 5 weekend, I drove from Houston to Kansas City for Stampin' Up! Nov 2016 OnStage.  We saw the new Occasions catalog coming out to customer Jan 4 along with the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  We made samples using new stamp sets and dies, swapped cards, and saw demos and more samples of the new sets from the Stampin; Up! Occasions catalog for 2017!

    We made these cute Valentine samples.

    Then we made these awesome birthday cards with a new die set and stamp set that I've fallen in love with:  The Balloon Adventures set and the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Dies.  

    This is the front using new Party Animal Designer Series Paper
