The Perfectly Preserved stamp set is retiring this month! There is so much you can do with this cute canning jar and matching Cannery Framelits (also retiring). Don’t miss them! Here’s a card my friend Kathy made using the ship from “The Open Sea” stamp set. I have seen bugs, gumballs and all sorts of things in the jar.
You can look up Perfectly Preserved and Cannery Framelits in the search box of my online store www.kwstamps.stampinup.net

Packed for you is #134687 in my online store at www.kwstamps.stampinup.net or look at the recent downloads.
It’s cute and it’s FREE. Great gift for teacher or student – will hold a gift card. You can use the SU downloads in any program, but this might be a good time to try the free 30-day trial of My Digital Studio.

Next week is my May Stamp Class in Erie, PA. I hope you can join me! We will be featuring the “Best of” Stampin’ Up! stamps – the monthly stamp set released to celebrate the 25th anniversary. The first card is a CASE of one of the kits you can purchase in the online store. I used the rose stamp from Best of Flowers to decorate the dress form made from the All Dressed Up framelits. And we’ll try out the cute little pinwheel sizzlit too.

Secret Garden by Stampin’ Up! is a pretty set with some matching framelits (that I did not use here). I saw this pretty color combination somewhere and had to copy.

I can’t stop using the “Feel Goods” stamp set (Spring Catalog). I love how this one turned out with the butterfly punches. I think it was a CASE of a Leadership card. Be sure to stamp the full images separately before assembly with dimensionals. I also used the Print Poetry paper – only available for a few more weeks.

Here’s a fun technique to try. The Sunburst Technique is a variation on masking and sponging. First make a reverse mask for the sun (I punched out the circle and used the outside part for the mask). I sponged with 2 different shades of ink – I think it was Summer Starfruit with a touch of Tangerine Tango. I made the starburst with sheets of copy paper and just moved them each time I sponged. The sentiment is from the Feel Goods stamp set (Spring Catalog).

Check out all the party details on the May 1 post.
There are some great new kits in the online store. But if you want a monthly surprise in a box, try out Paper Pumpkin.
You can order it here https://mypaperpumpkin.com?demoid=15681
Here are the cards I made with the April kit – Seriously
Above is the card according to the instructions. The sentiment was a bit too young for me, so I shortened it in my other cards and changed things up a bit.
And since I had a few pieces left, I grabbed a bit more cardstock and made a couple extra cards. I also used the Everything Eleanor stamp set for the frame.
The question for today is Seriously..?

Check out yesterday’s post for details about the Blog Party!
During April’s blog party (a month ago), I talked about the new This and That Journals and all the things you could do with them. I got my first 2 started! The covers are just waiting for one new coordinating product which will be out in the new catalog June 1. The book on the left is a bicycling journal for my husband where I can date his achievements and add memorabilia and photos. The second book is a Bible/prayer journal for me.
Remember to use the Hostess code (in yesterday’s post) if you place any orders in my online store this week:)
Question for today – can you guess the new product that will be great addition to finishing the cover for these books? (Demos – don’t tell).
