Sweet as a Peach: July 3 for Free

I could survive on fruit alone, and probably in my crafting, as well. Who wouldn’t love to bite into a sweet, juicy peach on a hot summer day?

In July 2021, I’m sending out 3 projects to my customers who purchase either the You’re a Peach Product Suite OR the Sweet as a Peach bundle…and let me be clear ~ The Suite is SWEETEST! It includes the stamp set, the coordinating dies, adorable Designer Series Paper AND a set of mini jam jars. (HINT: You might want to snag a second pack of the You’re a Peach DSP as it’s also on the July Designer Series Paper Sale and you are going to gobble it up).

Did you see that peek that you can also turn the peaches into cherries? (or plums, or even blueberries!)

While I will mail the consumable supplies for the free projects to you, there are a few supplies you may need. You are welcome to substitute colors you already have, but these colors will coordinate best for your projects:

  • Ink Pads: Pale Papaya, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, Memento Tuxedo Black, Craft White
  • Tools: Sponge Daubers, handheld hole punch, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine (or mini machine)

I created this card for a swap and wanted you to see the Stitched Greenery Die, which you may not have even noticed in the catalog, but is my new favorite. It covers a whole card and paired with the peaches, it adds the perfect texture:

Tip for stamping perfectly ripe peaches: Stamp the peaches in Pale Papaya ink, then use a sponge dauber to add a *touch* of Flirty Flamingo ink on one side of the image before stamping onto your paper!

Too Cute to Resist!

I gave my Sprinkled Ink Team the challenge to create a project using a color palette including a 2021-2023 In Color and this is the card I came up with (because you can’t ask your team to do something you aren’t willing to do)!

You know I love to combine a few challenges, so I borrowed some inspiration from the Global Design Project “Case the Designer” theme this week, where Emma Goddard’s card was a great starting point:

I flipped the black & white vs colored strip around so I could teach how to do the emboss resist technique: It’s an easy WOW that makes any card irresistible (see what I did there?).

To do this, you simply need to emboss your image in white or clear embossing powder onto white card stock, then blend ink over your embossed images~ the embossed images resist the ink and appear magically!

Watch HOW here:

Remember: When you buy the Dragonfly Garden BUNDLE (stamps + punch) from my Stampin’ Store in June, you get 3 free projects in the mail! Consider this card a bonus idea 🙂

June 3 for Free: Dragonfly Garden

Punches make creating cards simple by offering an element that adds that “punch” of pizzazz! This month, my 3 for Free kit will be mailed out to those who order the Dragonfly Garden bundle, which features the Dragonfly punch and you’ll be flying to the craft room to put them together.

While I will send you all the consumable supplies (card stock, paper, ribbon, etc), there are a few ink pads and supplies you may want to add to your order (if you don’t already have them) to help you complete your projects:

  • Balmy Blue Classic Ink Pad
  • Bumble Bee Classic Ink Pad
  • Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink Pad
  • Just Jade Classic Ink Pad
  • Versamark Ink Pad
  • Sponge Daubers
  • Gold, Copper OR Silver Embossing Powder
  • Heat Tool (for embossing)

To get you inspired by this bundle (and to teach you how to make some stunning watercolor backgrounds), I demonstrated these two cards during my Facebook Live yesterday (not part of my 3 for Free kit):

The technique (Stampin’ Blends on Vellum with Alcohol) is really quite magical, and so enjoyable to watch:

As I mention in the video, if you don’t want to do this technique yourself -OR- you just want MORE of it, you can also subscribe by June 10th for the Paper Pumpkin Kit “Expressions In Color” which will get you making 9 gorgeous watercolor themed cards in moments with everything you need in one kit arriving in your mailbox:

May 3-for-Free: Pretty Perennials

What makes you happy?

Do you make time to do the things that cheer you?

Stamping is one of those things that make me doubly happy: When I create something lovely AND when I send it to someone I love and it makes THEM joyful too! The Pretty Perennials bundle in the January-June mini catalog spreads happiness in a BIG way:

The large scripty “HAPPY” is like a strong suggestion! Choose a colorful palette and create joyful celebrations:

I’ll list the supplies I used for this birthday card below, and while this bundle will NOT be appearing in the 2021-2022 Annual catalog, it is available through June in the mini catalog that is crossing over for a few months.

I chose it for my May 3-for-Free kit and will send you the consumable supplies to create 3 projects in the mail and the tutorial via email when you purchase the bundle from my stampin’ store in May 2021!

Here are the suggested supplies you’ll need to complete the 3-for-Free projects:

Ink pads: Memento Tuxedo Black (132708), Whisper White Craft (147277); Bumblebee (153116), Night of Navy (147110), Granny Apple (147095); Poppy Parade (147050); Mango Melody (147093)

We All Scream for Ice Cream

I’m so pleased that you like the Ice Cream Corner Suite as much as I do! I’m all-in for any rubber stamps with a coordinating punch: It makes paper crafting so easy.

This is the last week to order the bundle or suite and receive my April 3-for-Free kit:

While the stamp set and punch will be in the 2021-22 Annual catalog, they won’t be bundled together with the 10% discount like they are right now, and the coordinating Designer Series Paper will be retiring by the end of June!

This is a card we created at our last Stamp Club…and by the way, Stamp Club begins again in MAY, and we’d love to have you JOIN THE CLUB!

Don’t limit your creativity to cards…I even used the supplies to create this with a Rusch clock from Ikea:

Here’s the video tutorial taken from my Facebook Live demonstration:

Hydrangeas Abound

The Annual Catalog Inspiration

Hydrangeas represent gratitude, grace, abundance, and beauty. The Hydrangea Hill Suite offers you abundant beauty & grace with for your Spring creative projects with a two-step stamping set, coordinating dies and Designer Series Paper and accessories. 

Warm up your creativity with this bundle or suite from my Stampin’ Store in March 2021 and you’ll also receive supplies for 3 exclusive projects from me! UPDATE: We are getting low on inventory for some of the products in the suite, so this is your best opportunity to order!

Sharing a few “bonus” project photos with you as well; The first shows how lovely the hydrangea blossom is when embossed in white and watercolored.

WATERCOLORING TIP: Squeeze your ink pads when they are closed, then pick up the ink from THE LID when opened (never put your water pens onto your ink pads to pick up ink!)

This is one of our acetate card boxes that you could decorate and fill with a small gift like tea towels, napkins, cash or thank you cards for a newlywed couple. While the mercury glass acetate sheets in this suite are colored Rococo Rose or Highland Heather on one side, they are silver on the back side, as used on this sample.

March 3 for Free: Hydrangea Haven

Each month I offer a different “free kit” for a bundle from the newest catalog: During March, when you purchase the Hydrangea Haven bundle (or Hydrangea Hill Suite Collection available again mid-March), I will send you 3 tutorials by email and the consumable supplies via USPS to complete the projects.

With blossoms beginning to burst forth this month, these lovely bunches of flowers seemed a fitting way to spring into crafting that coordinates with the season! There are a few products you’ll need to complete the projects: Scissors, adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine (or Big Shot), Tuxedo Black Memento pad AND these suggested Stampin’ Up! ink pads: Highland Heather, Misty Moonlight, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray. These colors also coordinate with the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper. You may want to add these items to your cart when you are ordering the bundle.

TIP: Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray are two retiring 2019-2021 In-Colors leaving us in April, so if you need to order ink refills for your ink pads (or matching card stock or accessories), get them SOONER than later, as they tend to sell out quickly!

While these pretty purple projects are NOT part of the kit, I did show you how to use the Hydrangea with the gorgeous Mercury Glass Acetate Sheets (included in the Suite Collection) during a recent Facebook Lunchtime Live Crafting:

Want to plan ahead for future 3 for Free kits? The kit with your purchase for April will be the Sweet Ice Cream bundle (or Ice Cream Corner Suite Collection).

In case I haven’t mentioned it recently, I know you have many options for purchasing your craft supplies and I *TRULY* appreciate when you choose me to keep you stamping. Your support of my small business means the world to me, so thank you from my heart to yours.

Hey, Birthday Chick: 3-for-Free!

Remember the Hey, Chick stamp set from Sale-a-Bration a few years back? They were the “must-have” set of the year and those same chicks are BACK (and ready to PARTY!) in the January-June mini catalog. It’s fitting that my February 2021 3-for-Free class features the new Hey, Birthday Chick! bundle:

In addition to their new stamp set, the original set is available AGAIN – ICYMI – and there are coordinating dies to keep them farm-fresh. “CHICK” out what all the cluck is about HERE!

Starting off with a simple card, I created this one on my Facebook page last Monday:

There is also an edited version of the how-to video on YouTube:

When you order the Hey, Birthday Chick bundle from my Stampin’ Store in February, you’ll receive a tutorial for 3 projects via email with the paper goods to make those projects coming to you in the mail.

Supplies you will also need to complete the 3-for-Free projects:

Product List

I listed the mini Cut & Emboss machine for those who don’t have a machine yet, but a regular Cut & Emboss machine will work too (or a Big Shot).
