What’s New at SU! Birthday Dies

Whats new (2)

Paper crafters love nothing more than Co-ordination: We swoon for ribbon in Stampin’ Up! colors, we sigh over designer series papers that match our punches and we are head-over-heels when we have dies for stamped images so we don’t have to cut them out!

It’s February and our group of demonstrator friends from around the world are showcasing the NEW SU! Product Coordination release items and we are hoppin’ with excitement to share these projects with you!

The Birthday Dies were designed to coordinate with the Happy Birthday to You Sale-a-Bration Stamp set (which you could choose free with a $50 order before March 31, 2020). Notice the leaf dies: There are TWO leaves on ONE die! This is a great improvement, as tiny dies are too fiddly for me and having two of them together makes them much easier to use!

IMG_4637-(W)My project is a remake of one of my favorite gift packaging because our Acetate Card boxes are perfect for holding a mug cake mix. It’s sort of a “bake-your-own-birthday-cake” gift!

IMG_4640-(W)It’s a pretty, frilly & feminine project, and even though I did end up fussy cutting the sentiment, the dies helped the rest of it come together quickly.

IMG_4639-(W)These are products you will NOT want to wait to order because they are only available while supplies last and since they match some of our most popular items from the current Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration 2020, they are sure to fly off the shelves.

The supplies I used are listed below, and I’d love to hear what you think of this birthday box so before you hop along to the Anke’s blog next (or back to Diane’s project),  leave a comment then keep hoppin’ for more product coordination inspiration!

New Coordination: Crafting Made Sweeter

 

Sale-A-Bration Coordination Product Release

Do you have a combination of food that you crave? It’s caramel and chocolate for me! While they are both great on their own, they are even BETTER TOGETHER!

Just like food, crafting is sweeter when you have the perfect combinations. Stampin’ Up! has made favorites from the Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration reward items even better with new coordinating products, just released.

The popular Sale-A-Bration reward stamp set, Happy Birthday To You (#152308), and the Special Someone stamp set (#151643) from the Mini Catalog are awesome on their own, but paired with their coordinating dies or framelits,  crafting sweet cards is faster and easier.

You’ll also be PLEASED AS PUNCH when you see the new Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper (#153558). It coordinates with 4 different punches!

The coordinating products are only available until March 31st or while supplies last. I’m predicting some will sell out, so don’t wait to get your new favorites!

More Love to Mail

But wait! There’s MORE! Yesterday I shared a Pink/Red/White card (or Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Whisper White), but if you haven’t had time to watch my Lunchtime Live Crafting Videos on Facebook each Monday, you may have missed some of the other Valentine themed projects I’ve been creating from the From My Heart Suite by Stampin’ Up!~ so I thought I’d share some here.

IMG_4399-(W)

If you have a hard time choosing which side of your Designer Series Paper to use on a card, make THESE CARDS instead, because you don’t have to choose! You can see one side on the front of the card and enjoy the other side of the DSP on the inside of the card! IMG_4398-(W)

They are simple enough to make with elementary students, too!

A few weeks ago, I demonstrated a few ideas for a party or small gift and made this fun tin with the same suite stuff:IMG_4385-(W)

One thing I really appreciate is that if you LOVE all these coordinating products, Stampin’ Up! has made it very easy to get them all (with a bit of a discount) with just one item from my Stampin’ Store! Of course, you can still pick and choose the products you like best (or order more of the things you LOVE).

Thanks for stopping by and may all the love you send come back to you!

Heartfelt for Valentine’s Day

Are you ready to spread some love? That was my first thought when I saw the Global Design Project Color Challenge, since those colors just happened to be out on my desk anyway:

This is the card that was born:

IMG_4392-(W)

You may notice an image that isn’t in the Heartfelt stamp set (the heart outline that says “with love”)…that was from the January “I’ll Bee Yours” Paper Pumpkin kit and coordinates with the Heart Punch Bundle, and it felt perfect for the project:IMG_4394-(W)

If you are planning to shoot a few Valentine cards off, you need to get your supplies ordered soon! IMG_4401

What’s New at SU! Peaceful Poppies Suite

Whats new (2)Hi there, crafty friend! With the NEW January – June Mini Catalog, our international group of demonstrators are coming together to showcase the Peaceful Poppies Suite, and trust me when I say, they are irresistible (the stamps, the projects AND the demonstrators!)

JAN_JUNE MINI“I don’t need any more floral stamps,” I told myself when I went to OnStage last November, when Stampin’ Up! released the mini catalog to demonstrators. “I’ve got plenty, so I’m NOT going to buy any more.” Then I saw THAT COVER, and my willpower went about as far as Dorothy across the poppy field in Oz…

Today I’m sharing a photo frame project using the Peaceful Moments bundle. You can order this bundle and save 10% when you get the stamps and coordinating dies together ~OR~ you can let the poppies work their magic on you and succumb to the entire Peaceful Poppies SUITE (like yours truly).

IMG_4349-(W)

I found this adorable wooden photo frame at Dollar Tree (only a buck!) and used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to cover the front – I demonstrated how to do it on different frame in my Monday Lunchtime Crafting Live on my Facebook page.

IMG_4347-(W)

The dies make these stunning layered flowers and leaves and I just couldn’t stop adding layers!

A 3/4″ strip of copper foil sheet (stamped with StazOn ink) made a perfect “name plate” for the bottom of the frame: IMG_4344-(W)

To create the ends of the faux plate, just stick it into your Everyday Label Punch like this:

IMG_4353

The photo is from our trip to OntarioCanada to visit Ed & Carolyn Helder last September. I met Carolyn through Stampin’ Up! years ago and we’ve become dear friends and this was certainly one of our most enjoyable vacations OF ALL TIME! How grateful I am for the connections created through crafting. (Carolyn, if you see this, pretend to be surprised when it comes later for your birthday)

IMG_3085

I’ll share the supply list below if you happen to pick up a frame from the dollar store, but if you are ready to pop along our blog hop, enjoy Judi’s poppy-themed project next, or back up to Brenda’s Blog.
