Sunflowers Dies

 Time for another "CASEing the Catalog" blog and video tutorial.  This time I am casing the card found on page 35 of the Stampin' Up! 2022-23 Annual catalog.  Utilizing a returning item.  The Celebrating Sunflowers stamp set and the Sunflowers dies were sold as a bundle in a previous catalog.  They have carried over to the new catalog and are available separately on page 35 and 175.  I have some videos from the past that feature this set of dies as well and you can view them, HERE and HERE and HERE.  Enjoy those and now for today's card.

Isn't this lovely?  Actually with the dies this is very easy to make too so be sure to check out the YouTube Video Tutorial for any tips I might have and for measurements etc.

Honeybee Home

 Card number two for this week uses the Honeybee Home stamp set and the Beautiful Shapes Dies both of which carried over from last years Stampin' Up! catalog.  I'm so glad they carried over.  The dies especially are so versatile.

I cased the card that can be found on page 74 of the current 2022-23 Stampin' Up! catalog.  I didn't have the DSP they used so I used my own - the Pretty Prints DSP.  I really like this paper and will probably be buying more.  I've already put quite a dent in the package I have.  I do have a full tutorial up on my YouTube channel that you can view HERE.  While you are there I hope you will consider subscribing.  My videos are just no nonsense, how to's with a tip or trick thrown whenever I can.  Nothing super professional or fancy just real me making cards to share.  Feel free to copy anything I share but when you do please give credit where credit is due and refer back to my channel.  Thanks!

Now, I have a drawing going on.  The prize is a full set of the new 2022-24 In Color ink pads.
You get an entry into the drawing for each increment of $50.00 you spend before tax and S&H.  Orders must be placed by June 10th.  The drawing is on June 11th.  When you place your orders please use the current host code.  Remember to only use the host code for orders of less than $150.00.  This is so you don't miss out on your hostess rewards.

One way to earn an entry is to subscribe to a 3 month pre-paid Paper Pumpkin kit.  June's kit is called Pick of the Crop and I am sure it will be a fun kit.  I do make alternative projects each month and post videos for those so if  the kit doesn't quite meet your expectations you will have options of what you can do with it.  We all have different tastes and there is a good chance you won't like every single kit so the alternatives help with that. You can subscribe by clicking HERE.

Thanks for stopping by,  please consider subscribing to my blog so you don't miss out on future contests, specials and promotions.  Oh, and one more thing, each order of $50.00 or more that uses the host code will receive a thank you gift from me in the mail as my way of saying thank you.
