Daffodil Daydream

 My daffodils have finished blooming but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the beauty of them.  With the Daffodil Daydream stamp set and the daffodil dies I can create a beautiful rendition of the lovely daffodil.  

I was a bit intimidates by the dies at first.  So, what I did was die cut all the flower pieces and then start putting them together and once I saw how they fit together it was much easier to figure out what pieces I needed in what colors.  I cased this card from page 24 of the 2022-23 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog.  It was fun to imitate and I did a few things differently which I explain in my YouTube Video.
This is one of those cards where the Stamp-a-ratus was needed to get that lovely deisgn you see going across the card.  The video I put up on YouTube shows you how to get that to work.

It's June already but you still have time to earn entries into my drawing for the five new in color ink pads.  
Each order placed until June 10 will earn one ticket for the drawing for each $50.00 increment in merchandise before S&H and tax.  So for a $50.00 order you get one chance, for a $100.00 order you get two chances and so on.  Orders must be placed on or before June 10.  The drawing will be held on June 11th and the winner notified.  For orders less than $150.00 be sure to use the current host code which for June is UBX9GQFH

One way to earn a ticket is to purchase a three month subscription to Paper Pumpkin and you can do that HERE!   Subscribe by the 10th of June and get the June Paper Pumpkin "Market Fresh"  I'm sure this will be a fun kit and I always make several alternatives each month with a video which I send a link to all my subscribers.

Lovely & Lasting

 A new set I am really enjoying is the Lovely & Lasting stamp set.  It actually comes as a bundle with some dies but today's card only uses the stamp set.  This was cased from page 24 of the 2022-23 annual Stampin' Up! catalog.  I made a few changes but followed the basic design pretty close.  For example the sample used the Quatrafoil Tile Embossing folder and I switched it up to the Brick & Mortor embossing folder.   The sample also embossed the entire white art piece and added a sentiment piece over that.  I just embossed a portion of the art piece and put the sentiment at the bottom.

I also used a different designer series paper than the one in the example.  You can see what it did when you view the video tutorial on my YouTube channel.  

I am running a drawing for a set of all five of the new 2022-24 in color ink pads.  For each increment of $50.00 in merchandise your order you get one chance to win.  The drawing takes place on June 10th so you still have a few days to put together your order.
Remember, each time you order $50.00 or more I send you a small thank you gift as well.
Orders less than $150.00 please use the current host code.

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.
