Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper Wedding Card

This is the last card we made for my card class last night. I can't seem to get enough of this paper. You might notice that I colored the flowers. I just took a Sponge Dauber and dabbed a little color and swirled it onto each flower. For this card I used Pool Party ink and cardstock. I added the Venetian Crochet Trim at the top.
Oops, looks like my Pearl slipped on one of my flowers. I thought the Pearls added some texture to the card.
This card I used 1/4" Blushing Bride Ribbon and Ink.

My Card Classes are always the 2nd Saturday of each month. Cost: $15 or FREE with a minimum order. We make 6 cards, 2 each of 3 cards. RSVP: 2 days before class.

Circle of Spring, June card class

I couldn't wait to use Circle of Spring stamp set and the Brick Wall Embossing Folder. Did you know that this Embossing Folder is 6" x 6"? So cool if you are doing something big or a scrapbook page. I love that this stamp set coordinates with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits. You can check out the Wondrous Wreath stamp set on page 72. That set was is in the Holiday Catalog and has carried forward into the Big Catalog. So the coordinating Framelits go with both stamp sets. Way to go Stampin' Up!

I die cut the sentiment with our new Tags and Labels Framelits.
And then of course I needed to use some of the yummy Mint Macaron Dotted Lace Trim for the bow. This lace is so easy to tie a bow. The wreath is popped up with dimensionals. Then I added the flowers using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

Shaker Flip Cards For Top 2 in Sales and Watercolor Wishes Card Kit Now Available

I like to send my Top 2 in Sales a fun card with a little something each month. Doreen and Carol are my top 2 for May. When I saw these Shaker Flip Cards on Nicole's blog I knew they would be perfect for this occasion. Check out Nicole's video HERE!
They aren't hard to make, just a lot of steps. I used the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack (6" x 6"), along with the Sweet Stack stamp set which is new this year. 
 The Confetti Stars Border is perfect for shaker cards. I also added some Gold Sequins.


One of these cards went to Miss Patty! (I can't remember which one Patty received) You might remember my post from Saturday with the Sharpies and the White Perfect Accents gift I received from Patty. She also gave me a bunch of cardstock already pre-cut for cards. My Box of "happiness". You can see the post HERE! I had no idea I was going to receive these gifts when I made an extra card. I just thought she might like one.

Who Wants FREE Stamps?


Are you ready to join the Stampin' Up! Family? Well tomorrow is the last day to get the "extra 2 stamp sets FREE".
For $99, you pick $125 of product from the catalog. It can be anything you want! Then, you pick out TWO ADDITIONAL stamp sets to add on. And guess what? Free shipping! Why wouldn't you take advantage of this deal?
Remember: Joining Stampin' Up! is like having a membership (think Costco). If you decide this isn't for you, you would just drop at the end of the quarter, no questions asked. But, if you would like getting  20% off all your stamping supplies, you might want to give it a try. You also get to pre-view all upcoming catalogs one month a head of time.

ONLY ONE MORE DAY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MY NEW CATALOG SPECIALS!


These are the Paper Samplers  I have left. I would love to send you one. All you have to do is place a $50 order (& use the hostess code, SX3WXUWP).
These Paper Samplers are great to have on your desk. I have mine on a big ring. So much easier than getting the whole package out when you are designing a project. On each label is the Designer Paper Name, number and coordinating cardstock. No more guessing.


New Catalog Special (June 2-30th) Ends tomorrow, June 30th.
  • Spend $50 and receive a sampler (you will receive 6 pieces that are cut at 4" x 6") of one of our new Designer Series Papers. 
  • Spend $75 and receive the sampler and a package of our new Metal Rimmed Pearls (they are beautiful). 
  • Spend $100 and receive the sampler, Metal Rimmed Pearls & In Color Dotted lace Trim of your choice.
(Email me with your color choice.)

For every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax), pick a number on my 50/50 board. When its full I will choose 4 numbers and each person will receive a $25 shopping spree on me!

Don't forget to use the hostess code when ordering (SX3WXUWP) (Unless your order is $150 or more).
Coming Soon: Bonus Deals 
Get ready, because June 30-August 3, we're adding more items to the Clearance Rack and to Weekly Deals. Save up to 30% on even more on Weekly Deals, or up to 60% on extra items in the Clearance Rack (while supplies last). You'll want to hurry, because Weekly Deals discounts will be available in limited quantities before the items return to retail prices.  

I have some exciting news.....I got a call from Stampin' Up! last week. They want me to be one of the presenters for Convention. Can you believe that? I'm so excited and scared at the same time.  Everything is "top secret". But I can tell you I will be talking about products from the Holiday Catalog. I can't believe I'm even saying "holiday" at this time of the year. Stampin' Up! will be sending me product from the Holiday Catalog in a couple of weeks so I can play with it before convention. How cool is that? Now, I won't be able to share anything with you until August when we can start pre-ordering.  Did I mention that is one of the perks of being a Demonstrator? Yes, we get to see product and purchase a month before any catalog goes live to the general public. In fact, by going to convention we get to see the Holiday Catalog sooner.

I also want to mention that because of all of you, I've had the highest sales in my time with Stampin' UP! In fact, Cindy Daymont put me over my sales goal for this month with her order. I'll be sending her a little something. Thank you all for your support in my Stampin' Up! Business. My next BIG goal is to earn the Grand Vacation. July 1st starts the new Stampin' Up! year, so wish me luck!

Guest Stampers

I wanted to share with you a few things some of my customers are making. These cute little boxes were made by Sandy Maddux. Sandy makes little gifts for the people that are in the nursing home where her sister-in-law is. I think Sandy got the box directions from Sam at Pootles.co.uk. If you need a box, she is your gal.






Is this not cute? If you still have your Mustache Framelit and the Angled Tag Topper you can make one just like this. I think you could even use the Curvy Keepsakes Box Thinlits. I love that she used a pop top for the belt buckle.

Here are her instructions for this cute Santa Box:
Used real red cardstock (2" x 5"); angled tag topper on each end; 3/8" x 2" for white and black strips; pop tab for belt buckle; and mustache die.  It holds two Hershey nuggets wrapped in holiday Designer Series Paper. Almost forgot the nose - circle punch. Used sticky strips for closing at the top and glue dots otherwise.


And this awesome card is by Antonietta Perez. Antonietta made these party invitations for her daughter who just graduated from High School.

I love that my customers are sharing what they are creating.

Thank you Ladies!

Elegant Thank You Gift


This was one of the gifts Patty gave me for hosting our stamping afternoon last Saturday. I forgot to take a photo before I took the Metallic Sharpies out of the packaging. So humor me.....I put it back together without the packaging. Patty always teases me because the outside of a gift is my favorite part of giving a gift. Well, she knocked it out of the park, don't you think? And now I am addicted to coloring the New White Perfect Accents with the metallic sharpies.

And then if that awesome gift wasn't enough, she cut several packages of cardstock (with her new cutter). She said she had to practice cutting with her new cutter.........I think she was just being nice (as always).

Thank you sooooooo much Patty Bennett! You are a true leader, (and not just because you gave me stuff, good stuff......).

Who Says All Boxed Up Has to be on a Package?



This is the third card we made on Saturday. You can't go wrong with the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper. This paper is stunning! It goes so well with the Metallic Foil Doilies.  While this card didn't take long to put together, its still beautiful, don't you think?


Patty had a bunch of miscellaneous Candy Dots. We colored them with a Silver Sharpie. Now they go perfect with this card.

Definitely Dahlia Celebrate Card

This is the second card we did on Saturday. So simple but stunning. When you stamp this Dahlia, you don't need much else. The Pretty Petals piece on the bottom is perfect for this card, along with the Watermelon Wonder Lace Trim.

You're probably wondering how I colored the Celebrate. Lay your Expression on the stamp pad and mash into the ink pad. Patty has a video, you can check it out HERE!
