Flowering Tulips

 Okay, I have a confession to make.  I have the Flowering Tulips stamp set and the Tulips dies.  I bought them when they were a bundle in a previous catalog and I have never used them.  That's right, never used them!  I don't know why, maybe because I was caught up in other things.  But today I am changing that.  I have made a card using the stamps and dies and I cased the card on page 27 of the current Stampin' Up! annual catalog.

This includes a new item too, the Go To Greetings stamp set.  This is going to be a keeper set for me.  It has several greetings in three different sizes so they will work for just about any card. 
I love the fonts and the multiple sizes are really great.  As always my YouTube video has all the measurements, colors, embellishments etc.  that I used to create the card as well as the occasional tips & tricks that I try to throw in to keep things interesting.  Check out the video and subscribe to my channel while you are there.  
Just a reminder I am holding a drawing for the set of all five in-color ink pads for 2022-24.  For each order of $50.00 in merchandise you get one chance entered to win.  So, for 50. you get one chance for 100. two chances and so on.  The order must be placed by June 10th and the drawing will be on the 11th and the winner notified.

One way to earn an entry is to subscribe to a three month subscription to Paper Pumpkin.

All orders of less than $150.00 please use the current host code.  
For May that code is YCCAEPV2  
Don't know how to apply the host code to online orders?  Check out the how to HERE.

That's it for today. I hope you enjoyed the card and that you will take advantage of the drawing for the ink pads.

Pretty Pop Ups Dies

 Hey, it's about time I made something using the new products from the 2022-2023 Stampin' Up! Annual catalog!  I've been so busy with my other crafting love, my Glowforge Laser Printer that I've been neglecting my first love, stamping!  

Just to share a bit here is my latest Glowforge creation where I incorporated images from Stampin' Up! stamp sets.  

These are simple pen holders for your desk.  They measure 2.5 square x 3.75" tall.  Do you recognize the designs?  They come from Daffodil Dreams, Color & Contour and Hand Penned Petals.  I also have used one from Lovely & Lasting as well.
I use my stamps with my Glowforge and with my Silhouette Studio sofware for paper too.  There really are other ways to use your stamps.  Oh, if your interested in purchasing a pen holder just message me and I'll help you with that.  Cost is $7.00 plus shipping.

Enough of that, let's look at the card I made for today.  It is a monochromatic card.  Remember I shared about that in a previous post.  You can see that HERE.  

I used the new Tahitian Tide In Color o make this one and I cased the catalog on page 17.  You can watch the full video tutorial on my YouTube channel.  


Drawing for FREE set of the new In Color 2022-24 ink pads.  My mistake makes for a good reason to host a drawing.  For any orders of $50.00 or more place between May 10 and June 10 your name will be placed into a drawing to win the full set of new in-color ink pads.  For each increment of $50.00 you will receive another entry, so for a $100.00 merchandise order you get two chances, for $150.00 order 3 chances and so on.  The drawing will be held on June 11th, 2022 and the winner announced. 

Remember for orders of less than $150.00 please use the current host code which for May 2022 is YCCAEPV2.  

You can subscribe to the June Paper Pumpkin kit from now until June 10th.  This looks like it might have some cute little canvas bags that can be purchased to go with the kit to use for gifts.  If you subscribe to a 3 month pre-paid subscription you will get one entry into the drawing for the In-Color ink pads.  Just click HERE to go to the subscription page.
