Video: Splendid Days Suite

This week I played with 2 new products coming out July 1st!
A new suite called Spendid Days in the July – December (holiday) mini catalog on pages 64-65.
This suite can be all season, and I’m not ready for winter yet!

Sale-A-Bration is also coming July and August!  These pretty cards/envelopes will be freebies for a $50 purchase!

I love the delicate details and soft colors.  I have rarely used our Soft Sea Foam color…it’s so pretty for summer!

Here is my video showing this suite up close and the project:

Video: It’s Time for a Card-Again!

Before I head into this week’s video, Stampin’ Up announced Free Shippiing on June 21st!
Orders need to be $75 or more to qualify and is for customers as well as demonstrators.   Nice Surprise!
Check out the Last Chance products before the Jan-June catalog retires on June 30!

I love a hidden message or a pull-out sentiment!  This is an upcoming stamp set called Forever Friendship!  It’s in the July-December mini catalog coming out July 1st!

I loved the Cardigan sentiment and I also love the Plant sentiment:)

Here is this week’s video:


My second version of the card-again is this bright color combo of Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party.

I used the Picture This rectangle die for the layout, added some In Color designer paper behind the openings.

Video: Watercolor Stamping

Hi all!   It’s bear cub season here in our woods
of NC!  Yes, we are careful and steer clear of mama bears but catching a glimpse of a cub from afar s always a delight.  Just a few days ago a BIG mama bear and her 2 cubs walked through the neighborhood.
It’s also getting close to Father’s Day and I have a few guy birthdays coming up in June so it seemed a good time to ink up my Stampin’ Up stamp set, Wildlife Wonder!

It’s a beautifully sketched stamp set.  I think I mistakenly called the wolf a coyote in my video:)  but I particularly love the bear!
In my video this week, I’m showing how to stamp then add water for a watercolor look!  I also show how to ink and add water to your stamp before stamping on the paper – gives it a blurred, soft look
Oh! I also used the new Deckled Rectangle dies…those are pretty cool.


**BY THE WAY, Stampin’ Up Card Kits are on sale this month!  Buy one, get the Higher Priced Kit  1/2 off! 
See all the kits HERE

Here is a sample from the home office – you can see how just stamping it in one color is all you need since the stamp has such detailed etching already:

Video: How to use the new Masking Paper

Hi all!
Before I go into my project for this week, here are the RETIRING LISTS for the January-June 30th Mini Catalog

There is a sale starting on Wednesday, June 1st with many items 50% off!

Click HERE to view the list by PDF PAGE NUMBER

(A special thanks to demo friend Deb Snyder who revised the list to larger print for us:)
(Everything is While Supplies Last)

On to this week’s project video!

It’s easily missed in our new Stampin’ Up catalog but it’s a staple every stamper should have!  It’s called Masking Paper and it’s a very lightweight, sticky paper to mask or cover up images.  It’s mostly used when we want to put flowers in a pot, for example, or omit part of a stamped image.  We have used post it notes or painter’s tape in the past but these sheets are much bigger – each sheet is 5×7 inches!

Watch my video to see how masking paper can help stack tea cups!




I forgot to show the inside of my card in the video:

Here is that pretty Lovely Linen paper:

Video: Fancy Frames Notecards & Box

This week I tried out some of the new stand-alone dies in the new annual catalog!
Sometimes I need to add something new to give my favorite stamp sets a little boost,  a different look so I feel a bit more creative.
I also wanted to play with the new kraft notecards, which revealed a surprise when I opened them. They come with a box to hold the notecards!

Had I read the description in the catalog, it clearly says it comes with a box but I totally missed it!
Notecards are 3-1/2″ x 5″ when folded and can still be mailed with a first class stamp.

(Watch my video to see how to put the box together)


The Fancy Frames are 3″ x 4-1/2″, so they are a nice layer size for the notecards!

#159176   $34  FANCY FRAMES SET OF 2
I’m a fan – love them both!

I added Pool Party behind the white Fancy Frame before adding my flower from the Sending Smiles bundle.
I decorated the top of the box with the same flower and colors.
The box is sturdy and holds at least 8 cards/envelopes!

The BEST part….The box and 20 cards/20 envelopes for only $10!   #159247

A Million Thanks Card Kit and Roadies Videos

HI all!
This week I was supposed to be in Maui on the Stampin’ Up incentive trip but it was cancelled since so many weren’t ready to travel.
They did send a lovely box of goodies, a beautiful white waffle robe and we have a Virtual conference this week seeing the new holiday catalogs coming out in July!

I really, really like the Million Thanks card kit!
If you or someone you know wants to make quick and easy cards but doesn’t know where to start, THIS is a great kit.

I was surprised with the cool embossed card panels!  All cut and scored, ready to go A2 sized cards (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″)
The kit comes with a clear block for the photopolymer stamps,  an ink cube in Evergreen, and all the precut labels and decorative elements.  Just stamp the sentiment and stick it all on!    $21  #159144
Makes 9 cards with 9 Envelopes
Here is the stamp set:

I did add some sequins to my cards for a little extra!
Not sure how long the kits will last so grab one next time you are shopping with me!


I decided to postpone filming a video this week with the Virtual conference plus I’m still working hard on the paper, ribbon and accessories shares to get them out by Monday!

So for this week I’m giving you some new entertainment and inspiration from some of my talented team.
Some of them are brand new to stamping videos and would love encouragement!
A few may not be on YouTube, just Facebook so hopefully you can still see them

Linda Goldhersz lives in Orlando and also known as Snowberry Stampers.
I love her ocean scene using the blending brushes!
Her video is on YouTube HERE


Cindy Brumbaugh lives in Orlando AND Pittsburgh, doing classes in both places!
I love her diamond fold card!  You can see her video on YouTube HERE


Trish lives in Tennessee and just started doing Live videos last year!
She already has over 80 videos doing a few a week!
See her most recent LIve Video HERE


Kathy Honick lives in Eureka and is brand new to videos although she has been an educator for years and is a natural.  She’s also stamped for years and finally has time to try video!   She has a Facebook group/page where you can see her video HERE and be sure to check out her In color nails:)   I look forward to seeing more videos so be sure to like her page!

Thanks for watching and encouraging!


Video: New Magnetic Plate + Charming Sentiments Bundle

One of my first purchases in the new Stampin’ Up Annual catalog was this bundle, Charming Sentiments!
If you like the look of sentiments that are cut out, this bundle helps get that look with dies instead of fussy cutting.
Be sure to watch my video for a few tips!

AND I’m super happy to say that the magnetic plate is back and better than anything I’ve ever tried!
Watch my video to see it in action.


Here is the inside  – The Awash in Beauty paper is so pretty!

I’ll be cutting paper, prepping ribbons and accessories all week for the Product Shares!
For all those that joined my shares, thank you!  I think you will love it all!
