Turtle Friends

 Hello stamping friends!  I'm excited to bring you my weekly "casing the catalog" video and blog.  Today's card features the Turtle Friends bundle found on page 56 of the annual catalog.

Isn't this a cute set?  I've made another card with this set that you can see HERE.  Today, the original card I cased is found on page 56.  I have made a few changes which is what casing is about.  Getting inspired and then adding your own flair.

What a fun card to send to a friend to let them know you are thinking of them, praying for them or just to let them know you care.  It could also be a baby card too don't you think?

Don't forget that the designer series paper sale is almost over and you don't want to miss out on the 15% discount on the above select papers.  Stampin' Up! papers are a nice weight for card making and paper crafting and all of the colors coordinate together.  My favorites are the Hand Penned, In Good Taste, Pansy Petals and Beauty of the Earth.  Let me know what your favorites are.

The July 2021 hose code is:

Encircled In Friendship #simplestamping

 Hello and welcome to my #simplestamping weekly video and blog.  Today I have a bonus card to share with you as well instead of a stepped up version.  I am sure you will like the bonus card, I know I do.

The stamp set I feature today is the Encircled in Friendship bundle.  I primarily bought this set for the dies because they are so awesome.  

The different ways these dies can be combined make this set very versatile and I expect to be keeping them even if they get discontinued in the future.  Read on to see the cards I made for today and be sure to check out the video to see the tutorial.  
The above card was the first one I made.  Trying to stay in the guidelines of a simplestamping card.

This is the 'bonus" card.  I made a stencil with one of the dies.  Be sure to check out how to do this and use this on my video.

I do hope that if you don't have a demonstrator you will shop with my at my online store.  You can access it by clicking on the Shop With Me tag to the right of this post.  If this is July 2021 use the host code below but only if your order is less then $150.00.  Everyone who shops with me online and places an order of $50.00 to $149.00 and uses the host code will receive a gift from me in the mail.

Prized Peony

Hello and welcome to my weekly current catalog video and blog.  The tutorial is up on my YouTube channel and you will want to check it out to see the tips on how I made today's card.  I pulled out the Prized Peony stamp set and Peony dies for this one.  I haven't used it much and I needed to give it some love.

This card started with using some scraps from my June 19th box project.  Once I figured out how to use the scraps the rest just came together.  I just love using vellum to make these peonys and the tips on how to make that work are found in the YouTube Video.


July 2021 host code is for orders of less than $150.00.   For current host code see the column to the right of this post.

The Designer series paper sale is still going until August 2nd.  Be sure to take advantage of the 15% discount on select papers.  Just click HERE. to see which papers are on sale.
