Happy 4th of July

I have always been in love with
teddy bears.  Growing up my bed
was covered with various sizes
dressed in array of outfits.  Stampin'Up has the cutest stamp set
named Baby Bear on page 84.  It is
three stamps to get the details of this
special guy. The three main stamps are numbered one through 3 and you are told to start with the number 1 stamp which is the very dark details then the 2nd and finally the silhouette which is his lightest background.  I found starting with the last stamp the background made for much easier placement of the other two stamps. Because this was a class at the library I stamped 15 teddy bears using the new Stamparatus and found having the silhouette first made the rest of the stamping easy work.  The lightest color was Sahara Sand, then Crumb Cake and the darkest Early Expresso. Whether there is a new baby in the family future or like me you just love Teddy consider adding this special set to your stash.  Can't wait to dress him for Christmas ! Happy 4th of July to you and yours. God Bless America.

Animal Outing

This new set can be found on page 27.  There is also a mommy and
baby kangaroo.  Not only are all
three very cute and different the one
saying "Wild about You " makes for a cute card. These were colored with
the new Blends which makes coloring very quick and fun.  The
Designer Paper is also new and from
Nature's Poem. The punched edge
is also new from the Detailed Trio
punch. The ribbon is also new and
available in 5 InColors for 2019-2020.  This color is called Grape-fruit Grove. With the new Stampin'
Up color change we have a gorgeous
group of " New" colors to design
cards with.  Because of this I will be having all the retired colors on sale at my Open House on Sunday, May 27, from 1 to 4 pm. They are a real bargain at 3.00 for the Ink pad, reinker and SU marker.  My retired stamps and dies are FREE with an order for the value from the new catalog.  This year because of the date you can order from either of the catalogs and benefit from the FREE stamps . You can also on Sunday pick-up your FREE catalog with purchase.

Share What You Love Suite

I have been away for almost a year from posting.  I appreciate all who has stuck with me.  I had a medical problem that took my energy, what little I had prevented me from being able to think clearly.
Now that I'm well once again I can enjoy stamping and all the products Stampin' Up offers.  The new catalog should be coming to your home shortly and I know you are going to love it.  This year, for the 30th anniversary of Stampin'Up the company has redone the 4 color groups. We also got 5 new InColors for 2018-2020. Four of the colors are bright and bold and one Grapefruit Grove which I think should have been called Orange Sherbet are a welcomed addition. Just like last year Stampin'Up has created a "Suite" that can be ordered from now until May 31st with some free merchandise depending which suite you order. The paper below is one of the 24 sheets from the "Share What You Love Suite". The Stamps also come from that Suite. These 5 3X3 cards were created using
the new colors, Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove, Blueberry Bushel and Call Me Clover. The ink pads are really new.  The way they open and close is new and once broken in you will love them.  The ink pads are 10% off or 33.75. You will see on the top flowers a small delicate Artisan Pearl.  They are available as part of the " A Little more please bundle, 91.50 or the Got to have it all Bundle which is 127.50 which has 3 items for FREE. Further, if you add the stamp pads you can qualify as a hostess and get over 16.00 in additional products from Stampin'Up. I think each of us enjoys free products and 10% off when making an online purchase. Happy Stamping !

Happy New Years "2017"

Boy, did 2016 go fast.  It seems the older I get the quicker time flies. Which is amazing considering I'm not working full-time and can spend each day the way I want.  I am so happy to be back creating in my craft room.  With the NEW Occasions catalog that can be purchased from beginning on January 4, 2017 and the fun Sale-a-Bration which allows you to get something FREE for each 50.00 in merchandise purchase from either the main catty or the new Occasion catalog it is a very fun time of the year.  New stamps and accessories to get your creative juices flowing. Pages of creative ideas with Sizzix Dies, beautiful ribbons all coordinated to produce one or dozens of cards using your talents. And very typical of Stampin'Up the Sale-a-Bration catalog of FREE stamps and accessories always have some very unique items. This year is no exception.  I'm guessing that Hey, Chick on page 17 will be our Number 1 set for 2017 Sale-A-Creation. My Monday class will be using the set a week from tomorrow at the Resource Center.
If you don't have the new catalog and the Sale-a-Bration book contact me and I'll get them in the mail to you. Sale-A-Bration ends March 31st, 2017.  Don't miss getting something for FREE.  Also, if you have ever considered in joining Stampin'Up this is the perfect time. ASK ME !  and I'll fill you in on all of the perks.

Happy New Year !
