I’m a lucky stamper to be able to swap 10 cards each month with a group of demonstrators around the states. I love getting my box each month to see what they created! Here are a few from this month. (I love them all but have a full day ahead of me and have to limit today!)
Kimberly Allen is a master at the coloring with any medium and now here with the Blendies, just perfect!
See how she used the light gray for shadows around the flowers? Adds so much. She used Corner Garden, which looks like nothing when you see it in black and white in the catty 🙂
I love this bird because it’s so realistic! This one was stamped by Carole Gilmore using the stamp set, An Open Heart:
I tried to use the SU Stencils to create a plaid using this set, but I don’t think it was too successful.
What do you think?
A few new item from SU and the weekly Deals:
Another Photopolymer Set, You’re Wonderful, is just too sweet! You can print the flyer for true to life size!

The description says “Make the holidays count by counting down the days with this creative photopolymer set. Perfect for stamping advent calendars, it’s sure to be a centerpiece of your season.

That 2″ punch is new this year and it fits nice and snug into the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle punch! So does the 1-3/4 but this is a bit larger and looks nice! And the glitter….we are heading into the holidays so glitter will be upon us soon….literally!

I have officially mailed out the NEW 2014-2015 Stampin UP catalogs to all who have requested one here on the blog or otherwise.
I mailed them all out on Monday, so if you have not received yours by today, please email me! Over the years I’ve learned about 5% never make it.
Those of you I’m seeing this week, you will get yours in person.
In the wee hours, if I find the Ipad on my nightstand, I might visit Pinterest. If I’m feeling unorganized, there’s a million ways to solve any problem. If I’m feeling plump that day, I may look for healthy recipes. If I’m feeling lonely, I look at boston terrier puppies….Pinterest is the fix for just about mood 🙂
Sometimes I look through the stamping and papercrafting, save a few for inspiration.
Sadly, this one had no name or watermark on it, as it often happens on Pinterest. I loved the color combo of Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron. We don’t have the eyelets or that stamp anymore, but I made my own version of it.
Here’s my “PIN-spired” version:
I used the stamp set in the Occasions catalog called So Very Grateful, which will not be carrying over into the new catty so if you want it, get it before June 1st.
16.95 Clear Mount, # 133053
Pansy Punch for the flower, Bird Builder punch for the leaves. We have a super cool new DSP coming out in the new catty called Typeset – thin newsprinty paper that will be SO useful for lots of projects.
Thank you for the inspiration, wherever you are!
We have a new Photopolymer Stamp Set, Limited Availability which means while supplies last:
Super cute, I bought one. Cake measures 1″ wide x 1-3/4″ tall to give you an idea of size or you can print the flyer HERE for true size.
27 stamps, 13.95 Photopolymer
Here are this week’s weekly deals from Stampin’ UP:
Time for spring cleaning to make room for new stamps!
It’s sad to see some go, especially some of my favorite sets like Field Flowers and Woodgrain…but it just means new things are comin’!
This list means that it’s time for you to pull out a highlighter or post it notes, sit down with a cup of something good and highlight the things going away. Print the Retiring list by page number to help you go page by page. Keep a Post-It nearby to tag the possible sets you might want to get before they retire officially at the end of May.
Remember that this is the first year that stamps will be “while supplies last”.
The Retiring promotion runs April 21st – June 4th The new SU Annual Catalog starts June 2nd so we will have some overlap with just the retiring products. That’s a great thing so you can compare the new catalog with the retiring list to be sure of what you need to purchase.
For the stampin’ accessories – those are the inks, papers, ribbons, designer papers, buttons, brads, etc….Some of those will be going and what doesn’t sell may end up on the clearance rack but we never really know for sure. Some of those are discounted already – you will see those on the accessories list.
Retiring Lists – 2 ways to view
(if you see a FRA or ESP or DA, those are being retired in english as well as other languages)
Retiring Stamps (Available April 21-June 4, 2014, or while supplies last)
For 5 days only, April 21-25th, everyone gets free shipping on ANY order! No minimum, No maximum. ANY Retiring or current merchandise from any catalog or online promotion.

Hi all! I made these 2 cards a while back for a sketch challenge using the Stampin’ Up scallop tag topper punch.
I do love that Woodgrain background stamp! Everything on these are Stampin’ Up:
For this one below, I used So Saffron card stock and ink with the Woodgrain stamp. I punched the tag from the embossed SU paper called Naturals Composition. Coral, Garden Green and Saffron markers for the flower (from Simple Stems) and Baked Brown Sugar ink for greeting.
The card below is square, 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″. Crumbcake card stock and ink for the woodgrain stamp, Pacific Point for the circle image. (I haven’t used Pacific in a really long time!) Soft Suede cs for the scalloped tag, embossed with the honeycomb folder. The little gold pearls are just the white pearls and I colored them with my gold Sharpie pen. Then I threw a few sequins on there.
Where’s the flower stamp from? Serene Silhouettes, page 64 of the SU annual catalog. I hadn’t used that stamp from the set at all but the others are well used!
Here are this week’s Stampin’ Up Weekly Deals! 4/8-4/14 Only.
Here’s my 2 cents on this week’s deals:
I think the Punch Pack is a staple! I use those 3 a LOT. I’m worried they are on sale since it may mean they are retiring in May when the Retiring stamps list comes out. I hope not or if they do, I sure hope they replace them with something as great!
The sparkle glimmer brads (they should really be called glitter brads) are fun but the legs sometimes stick together. I have to use my paper piercer to pry them open since they are ‘glimmered’ all the way down the legs. Annoying but the brads look nice once you get them on the card 🙂
Can’t go wrong with Baker’s Twiner, ever.
The Gingham Wheel is a nice border. I unmounted mine and use it on a block (members, see my video in Stamping School)
I used the SU mounting foam after I ripped it off the wheel. I use them so much more that way!
That “make a cake” stamp set is small. I got it free at a conference 2 years ago and it’s still unused. The tiny butterflies are useful but I have yet to use the cake. Maybe it’s just me.
The Secret Garden framelits go with the Secret Garden stamp set on page 94 and also 2 of the stamps from the Simple Stems in the Occasions catalog on page 33. I hope this means that they are making more flowers to coordinate with it for the next catalog?
