A Stamper To Remember

Tea Together – End of Sale-a-bration

Filed under: Projects — March 23, 2019 @ 4:39 pm

There’s just one week left in the biggest sale on the Stampin’ Up! calendar.  I’ve been so busy crafting that I haven’t had time to share all my Sale-A-Bration projects, so here are a few more.  Get more ideas (free CardClass pdfs) with any purchase at my website shop.

Stampin' Up, Tea Together

These tea cards use 2 Sale-a-bration freebies – the Tea Time framelit dies and the Botanical Butterflies Designer Paper.  (This pretty Highland Heather design is on the back of two of the butterfly sheets).  The lace tablecloth uses the Delicate Lace Edgelits and Tufted embossing folder.  And the card base uses the Subtle Embossing folder.

Tea Together, Stampin Up

This card adds another freebie – the Country Floral embossing folder.  To get the tone on tone definition, ink up the inside of the logo portion of the embossing folder. Add the cardstock and run through the Big Shot.  I have tried lots of combinations of this technique and they all look amazing.

Look at Fresh Fig (a retiring color – get it soon)!

Doesn’t it look fabulous with the Strong & Beautiful stamp set?  The first card uses 2 more freebies – the Painted Season stamp set and the Storybook Punch.  The framelits are the only ones still available.

And one last project – yes I made a few more framed art pieces.

Sale-a-bration ends March 31, so don’t miss out on some great freebies.  The best deal however, is always the demonstrator starter kit.  Kick start your hobby, home business and/or ministry with some awesome Stampin’ Up! products of your choice at an amazing discount.  I’m happy to help you get started.

Happy crafting,

Simple Stamping

Filed under: Projects — March 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

Stampin’ Up! is having a fun monthly challenge called #simplestamping.

It’s just stamps, ink and paper – quick and easy!

Each month we have added just one extra item to step it up.  First a punch (January), then some Designer Series Paper – DSP (February) and now some ribbon (March).  Each month we have had a theme as well, such as birthday or wedding etc.

Here are a few of my #simplestamping projects from this year.  The base for most of these cards are Stampin’ Up! notecards & envelopes.  They come in a package of 20, in Whisper White or Very Vanilla, perfect for some quick cards.

Hello Cupcake (free during Sale-a-bration)

And stepped up with DSP:

Lasting Lily (free during SAB)

and stepped up with Stampin’ Up Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon:

To Have & to Hold wedding card with Ribbon again:

Here I added punch-outs from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Paper (free during Sale-a-bration).

Here, a masking technique with Home to Roost (also free during SAB):

and some more #simplestamping plus ribbon with Fable Friends – great for spring, Easter cards and baby cards:

As crafters, sometimes it’s fun to just dial it back to the simplest form of our art.  I hope you enjoyed my #simplestamping projects.   Stop by my website to sign up for my newsletter or find any of the products used here.

Happy crafting,

Premature Retirement – Supply and Demand for Dies

Filed under: Projects — March 13, 2019 @ 8:00 am

As you may have gathered, Stampin’ Up! bundles (stamps plus dies) have become one of our most popular products.  Stamp sets are made in house, but dies and punches must be manufactured overseas.  Due to some issues with the supplier, some retiring dies have (and will) sell out early.

Already gone: frog, cupcake, doily, bunny punch

Going fast:

  • Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies (item 148529)
  • Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies (item 148549)
  • Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies (item 148548)

Get them along with the stamp set to save 10% on the bundle.

Look over my February posts for lots of projects with the Wonderful Romance bundle.

I also enjoyed playing with the Climbing Rose trellis:

Climbing Rose, Stampin' Up

More projects soon, but I wanted to give you a heads up about the die situation.  Anything still available can also be added to the demonstrator starter kit to get the best deal!

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson

These are the retiring bundles that will sell out first:

Paper Pumpkin Rules

Filed under: Projects — March 9, 2019 @ 2:45 pm

I just love my Paper Pumpkin kits!

Stop right here:  Just one more day to get the next one – the special birthday kit!

The February kit was especially wonderful.  I made 4 home decor framed art pieces (plus one card) from one  kit.

I love the words of affirmation.  I hope these can be an encouragement to the ladies at the WCTL Women’s Conference next week.

I have most of the card bases left over so I can use the stamp set and make even more cards.  I’ll have to get some of these new cactus forever stamps too.

The only thing I added to the kit was one stamp from “Forever Lovely” and the “Celebrate You” thinlits.

Don’t forget to sign up for your Paper Pumpkin kit!  Or you will be sad:(

You can also get a prepaid subscription from my shop and qualify for Sale-A-Bration freebies.  But don’t forget to enter your code before March 10.

Happy crafting,

Warning – Stampin’ Up! Dies Hop Away

Filed under: Projects — March 8, 2019 @ 2:37 pm

You may have heard that the Stampin’ Up Hop Away Dies sold out this week!

And the Call Me Cupcake Dies are almost gone.

Sale-A-Bration Coordination

The good news is that the stamp sets are made in house by Stampin’ Up! so they will be available until the end of March.

The best news is that you can become a demonstrator, and always get things first, before they are gone.  There’s no obligation, so why not get a discount and first dibs on all the new products?

During Sale-A-Bration, the kit is $99 and you get $175 in product of your choice (including the cupcake dies if you grab them right away).  There’s free shipping on your kit too!  Check it out here.

I have been #simplestamping this year for some of my projects.  Stampin’ Up! has a monthly challenge for demonstrators (and they are giving prizes).

To Have & To Hold, Wedding Card, #simplestamping

You can’t get much easier than this!  I watercolored the flowers, but you could leave black & white.  Or add some color to the couple too.

Happy crafting,

So Hoppy Together and Hop Around Dies

Filed under: Projects — March 4, 2019 @ 2:30 pm

I made some fun interactive cards with the So Hoppy Together Stamp set.  They just make me smile!

I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! made matching dies.  I would get the dies quickly – they are already sold out in Europe.

So Hoppy Together, Hop Around Framelits Dies, Stampin' Up!

The Daisy spins and the lower right card has googly eyes.

Here are the insides of the popup and movement cards.

So Hoppy Together, Hop Around Dies, Stampin' Up!

Let’s see if I can post a quick video. (Oops, I skipped over the daisy card – it spins with a circle of window sheet behind, and dimensionals to give it space).

Today’s Tips:

-The Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper is the perfect companion for these cute frogs.  And don’t miss the More Than Words set with extra sentiments for many of the Sale-a-bration sets.

-I did not measure for the popup card because I wanted 3 different sizes.    I just eyeballed 3 sets of even cuts for the inside card, and then folded the card (valley) and the popups (mountain).  Attach the inside card to the outside card.  Very easy!

-For the movement cards, I took a z folded piece of window sheet (1/2 x 2-1/4″ scored at 3/4″ from each end).  I then used a glue dot at each side to adhere to the frog die cut and the card.  So cute!

The frog set (So Hoppy Together) is FREE with a $50 purchase – only this month!

And the dies are only available while supplies last – click on the photos below.

If you want it all at a discount, why not put the dies in your demonstrator starter kit?  Then you can add SAB freebies to your first order and save a bunch!

Happy crafting,
