Stampin’ Up!’s Perfect Partners Promotion!

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about! 

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.  

These stamp sets and dies are available separately or as a bundle. By buying the bundle, you and your customers will save 10% off the retail price. 

Put these wonderful stamp sets and dies together for more papercrafting fun! Here’s a video to show you even more about this promotion: Order now!

Here is a little parade of all the sets available!

Awesome, huh? The biggest thing I can tell you is to ACT NOW — all of these new dies are while supplies last, and the offer ends completely on 30 September!

If you make an online order of $50 or more, and use the host code below, I will send you a free set of LEAF LABEL & AMBER GEM COMBO PACK!

Soft Seedlings for Early Fall!

There is a new stamp set in the July-December Mini Catalog called Soft Seedlings. This set will work from late summer into Autumn, and I just love the watercolor-y, etched look of the set. Here’s my card:

Take a look at this beautiful stamp set:

The card starts with a card base from the Soft Seafoam & Pool Party Cards & Envelopes; unfortunately, this lovely card set is sold out, but you can re-create with a card base of Pool Party, perhaps with a floral pattern stamped on it. I then cut a strip of Soft Sea Foam card stock at 4 1/4″ by 2″. I embossed it with the new Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I then adhered that to the card base a little lower than halfway down.

Here’s the new Embossing Folder — think of the possibilities for your Fall holiday crafting!

I cut a panel of Basic White card stock with a die from the Scalloped Contours dies. Using the large leaf stamp, I stamped lightly in the Soft Sea Foam ink. I then took a sponge dauber and daubed lightly with some Pool Party ink from the ink pad. I THEN stamped onto the white panel.

I popped the white panel onto the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then took a scrap of Soft Sea Foam and stamped it with a sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set with Old Olive ink. I snipped diagonal cuts on each side and attached it to the card.

I then added a few retired Adhesive Sequins to the card to add a little bling! I also made the card in a horizontal fashion:

Which do you like better? I hope you enjoyed this first card with a beautiful new stamp set! All the products needed to make this project can be found at the bottom of this post.

There’s Still Reason to Sale-A-Brate!

The darling Hippo from the free Sale-A-Bration offerings continues to be a popular choice. These darling hippos are irresistible, and the sentiments are so fun! Here’s the stamp set, and you can now get the accompanying dies FREE! See below!

Step It Up
This week we made some stunning cards using the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set. If you like what you see, browse the Sale-A-Bration brochure for stamp sets and much more, available now until the end of August!

CASUAL
We kept our first card simple—we started with Petal Pink Cardstock and layered some Subtles Designer Series Paper on top. Then we stamped our hippo image on Smokey Slate Cardstock and finished with some white Baker’s Twine.

AVID
We stepped up our second card with another textured layer using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. We also added more color to our hippo using Watercolor Pencils. We finished with white Baker’s Twine that we colored with Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.

ARTFULLY AVID
For our third card we used a Blending Brush to add Calypso Coral ink to the Petal Pink Cardstock before we embossed it. We finished this card with a few dazzling embellishments—we love the way the gold complemented the Petal Pink and added just the right amount of sparkle.

Rustic Harvest Brings Late Summer Beauty & New Sale-A-Bration Free Products Added!

I had a chance to play with the beautiful Rustic Harvest Designer Series Papers from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. The papers provide beautiful, rich colors of late summer and fall, like this tag card.

I started with a card base of Basic White, measuring 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. I adhered a layer of one of the beautiful papers, cut at 4″ by 5 1/4″. These papers are so rich and pretty — the black and white accents add a bit of drama, and I just love the pumpkin and chrysanthemum images.

I then cut out two tags from the Tailor Made Tags dies — one in white and the floral pattern. I stamped the “Just for You” sentiment from the new Soft Seedlings stamp set, and then ran the white tag through my cut and emboss machine in the new Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. It’s so gorgeous!

I strung some baker’s twine and Mossy Meadow Braided Trim, both retired, into the top of the tag, and then attached them to the card. I finished with some Amber Gems, and I was done!

Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Papers = Beautiful and Quick Cards!

It’s amazing to play with the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers, and even better when they’re FREE! With Sale-A-Bration happening now through August, this beautiful set of papers is free with a $50 purchase from either our new Mini Catalog or our Annual Catalog. This card is a CASE of Artisan Yvonne Spikmans of The Creative Teacup. I just had to try it for myself!

The Rings of Love Designer Series Papers are 12 pages of beautiful 12″ by 12″ papers offered now, during Sale-A-Bration. Look at the fun seasonal designs with a watercolor feel:

To CASE Yvonne’s card, I simply started fussy cutting designs out of the page that is on the top third from the left!

I started with a Basic White card base, and added a panel from one of the paper designs in the set. I then started adhering layers of the house scenes, some popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals, to make the cute little vignette. I added a sentiment from a retired stamp set called “Life is Beautiful” and punched out the sentiment and a Night of Navy scrap with the Double Oval Punch. I finished off with some Iridescent Rhinestones. Thanks again, Yvonne, for a fun card!

Don’t forget — it’s SALE-A-Bration this month, so you could order a 1-, 3-, 6- or a 12-month set of Paper Pumpkins AND for every $50 or $100 you spend this month, you get to choose free products from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, found here!

It’s JULY, and that means a new host code. Place an online order with me for $50, and besides the Sale-A-Bration free product, you will receive free samples of new Designer Series Papers from the July-January Mini Catalog from me!
