New at SU: Happy Trails to Happy Tails

new at SU! blog header

Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop: Today our international group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are hosting a “Retirement Parade” showing you some of our favorite stamps that will be retired by June 2nd.

I chose the Happy Tails stamp set in memory of my walking companion of 10 years who we had to say good-bye to not long ago. While Tiger (my dog) wasn’t a Dalmation, it seemed to fit this fun-fold card perfectly:IMG_5341-(W)-2

It’s a tri-fold card and I started with a 12″ x 5.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock (scored at 4″ and 8″) and used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to create a frame on the front flap of the card.  IMG_5343-(W)

Once the card is completely open, there is plenty of space to write your message:

The Happy Tails stamp set is retiring, but the Dog Builder Punch will be carrying over to the new catalog (with no coordinating stamp set) so this is the time to get your paws on both of them!

Tiger was a loyal, patient and loving dog who was a blessing to our family and is missed. Happy Trails, Tiger and the Happy Tails stamp set!

You can move backwards or continue forward through the other awesome projects in our Retirement Parade!  You are sure to find a reason to contact your demonstrator ASAP to get something you won’t want to craft without before it’s gone 🙂

Chinchilla Out with a Color Challenge

The first day of May 2020 feels like it needs some CHEERFUL colors, and the TGIF Challenges team delivered just what the doctor ordered: 262

This pIayful palette called for something light-hearted, and the Witty-Cisms stamp set was the first to come to mind- that chillaxing chinchilla image has been begging for me to ink it up!

IMG_5325-(W)

It was so adorable in just a simple color-block, that I wondered how it would look with a little texture. Grabbed two of my favorite embossing folders and made a stepped-up version:

IMG_5326-(W)

Which one do you like best?

I’ll be sad when this stamp set retires on June 2nd because it has such clever greetings paired with adorable drawings! If you love it as well, sign up for my Witty-Cisms VIRTUAL Class in the mail HERE before May 15th: It includes instructions and supplies for 6 cards, the stamp set, Everyday Label Punch and 4 Stampin’ Blends Markers. This Chinchilla card is a bonus one you can make at home now!

Product List

Heads up: Both of the embossing folders are retiring too, but the good news is that a NEW Die Cutting/Embossing Machine is coming soon!!!

FAQ:
* Stampin’ Blends WILL be in the new catalog as a combo pack (a light AND dark shade of the same color) but will not be available to order individually.
* A NEW and IMPROVED adhesive option will be introduced in the new catalog, but if you need SNAIL refills before then, order early as they may go quickly.
* Yes, there will be a NEW die-cutting tool coming, and while you will see it in the new catalog, it may not be available to order immediately after the catalog goes live. But you’ll love it when you get it!
* I’ll be mailing catalogs to my active customers, and I’d love to serve your creative needs! If you’d like to order from me, shoot me a message and I’ll drop a catalog in the mail to you!

What’s New at SU! – A Mini Bonanza

Whats new (2)

Welcome to our blog hop through the January-June Mini Catalog: Our group of demonstrators from around the world look forward to sharing ideas that you can incorporate into your paper crafting using Stampin’ Up! products.

I’m showcasing my favorite part of the Bonanza Buddies Suite: The tag die!

151566g

The size of the tag is generous and gives you plenty of room to stamp. These are two tags I made to use on my grandchildren’s birthday gifts:

IMG_5027-(W)

The stitched edge around the tag is a detail that adds a finishing touch. Plus the animal “buddies” fit on the tag with room for a sentiment. IMG_5028-(W)

You don’t have to stop at a gift tag, take that tag and put it on a card, too:

IMG_5161-(W)

As you are hopping through the blog posts, pause to leave a comment and grab a notebook to jot down creative ideas, draw a card sketch you want to try, color combinations you love or pin them to a Pinterest board!

Jump on over to Germany and Anke’s stamp studio next…or if you are going backwards through the hop, you can skip back to Mary Ann’s post:

Ornate Garden Specialty DSP Card

The think I love MOST about the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite is the DESIGNER SERIES PAPER!152488g

Some of the sheets of this paper (inspired by Victorian Foils) have gold foil designs on one side and they are so very frilly and feminine: IMG_5145-(W)

This card is a unique way to see BOTH sides of the paper by using the DSP as your card base. I’m sharing a tutorial and you can click on any of the project pictures to download it! It opens up accordion style like this: IMG_5146-(W)-1

If you struggle with die cutting detailed dies (like the ornate frames in this suite of paper crafting products) I shared a TIP on this Facebook Live Video that will make die cutting SO MUCH EASIER for fancy things like this!

Got a lot to say in your card? Add another layer of card stock in the first fold and you can write a longer message to the recipient: IMG_5147-(W)

Oh, so Witty! A Virtual Card Class

savingPNG

We could benefit from a little laughter amidst the chaos of life, so I’m trying something NEW to keep you stamping and giggling: A Virtual Card Class! There is no better stamp set to feature in this class than the “Witty-Cisms” set that will tickle your funny-bone with it’s clever images and greetings. It’s one of the most popular in the Mini Catalog!

Here’s how it works:

The Virtual Class includes the Witty-Cisms stamp set and the Everyday Label Punch ~OR~ 4 Stampin’ Blends Markers (Light Daffodil Delight, Light Call Me Clover, Highland Heather Combo pack) as well as instructions and the supplies to create 6 cards (2 each of 3 different designs). You will need both the punch and Stampin’ Blends to complete your cards as well as a Memento Black ink pad and a Lovely Lipstick (or Real Red) ink pad, adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals. You may add those items to your order, if needed. The tutorial will be emailed to you once your payment is received. Your basic kit will be delivered from Stampin’ Up! and the supplies will be mailed to you from me.

If you already have the Everyday Label Punch and Stampin’ Blends, you can substitute another product of equal value.

SIGN-UP for the Witty-Cisms Virtual Class here by April 30th!

Looking forward to sharing a little laughter and crafty love with you,

Loni
