Let’s Eat Cake

It’s time for cake!  The Cake Builder Punch is back in stock and you can order it now!  That means the Piece of Cake Bundle is also available to order.  Did you know that when you order as a bundle it saves you 10%?  And we only have bundles when the items are introduced in the catalog.  Meaning that once this catalog ends even if the products carry over (and the punch is for sure) they won’t be a bundle any more.  So save your money now and order the bundle.

I used the Piece of Cake Bundle and the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper for my Bingo event at the end of February.  It was a birthday theme and we made some fun cards.  This one is Lovely Lipstick, Night of Navy and Whisper White.  I randomly stamped the Happy Birthday all over the white panel.  What I do is take the stamp – ink it – stamp, stamp, stamp – and then repeat.  That gives you the varying degrees of color in the background.

Hop on outta here

I have some more updates about Sale-A-Bration products.  A couple of things have hopped right outta here and others are moving fast.  So if you have something you want you better hop on over to my online store and order it right now! 

The Organdy Ribbon that was back at the beginning of the week sold out about a day later – I told you to hurry.  And the Hop Around Framelits that coordinate with the So Hoppy Together stamp set – well they hopped right on out of here too!  So the moral of the story is don’t wait order today.  Rumor has it that the next thing that will sell out is the Call Me Cupcake Framelits that go with the Hello Cupcake Sale-A-Bration stamp set. 

I had this cute Hoppy Birthday card to share with you today.  It will be an option in my Quick & Cute cards class at the end of the month. 

I used the dies on the frog and the lily pad but if you have decent fussy cutting skills you can cut out that frog with paper snips.  And to make a lily pad use a skinny oval shape and cut a notch out of one end.  The little flies I stamped directly on the card and added a little “movement” with my black marker.  Birthday comes from the new More Than Words stamp set. 

Supply List

  • #149725 So Hoppy Together stamp set (SAB Free with $50 order)
  • #150073 Hop Around Framelits Dies (sadly they have sold out)

Sweet Birthday Wishes

Did you hear the news?  The party just heated up with new, limited-time products that coordinate perfectly with select Sale-A-Bration products.  What does that mean you might ask.  Well for the first time Stampin’ Up! is releasing 4 sets of dies, a punch and a new stamp set all designed to coordinate with products from Sale-A-Bration that you can earn for free.  These new products will only be available during the month of March while supplies last.  Don’t wait – there won’t be more of them ordered so once they are gone they are gone.  I’ll be sharing more in the coming days.  Today I’m going to show you the new stamp set .  But here is a full list of products that are coming.

  • More Than Words stamp set
  • Hop Around Framelits Dies
  • Lily Framelits Dies
  • Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies
  • Four Seasons Framelits Dies
  • Story Label Punch

Now that you had a look at the products that are coming March 1st.  Let’s take a look at a project I made with the More Than Words stamp set.  You can use this set by itself or pair it up with the other Sale-a-Bration sets to give you more options for them. 

When you look at the stamp set it might be confusing to see the Wishes stamp and then see half of the word in another stamp.  They are designed to layer together.  I used my Stamparatus to line mine up perfectly and then I was able to stamp a whole stack of these cards.  My base Wishes is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink and then the bottom layer is stamped in Bermuda Bay.  It gives an ombre effect to the word Wishes. 

Supply List

  • #150069 More Than Words stamp set (available March 1 – 31, 2019)
  • #48569 How Sweet It Is Cardstock pack
  • #100730 Whisper White Cardstock
  • #148568 How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper
  • #147097 Coastal Cabana Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147096 Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147051 Melon Mambo Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #146276 Stamparatus
  • #146281 Candle Embellishments

The little silver candle embellishments finish it off.  They are self-adhesive so super easy to add to this card.  I’d consider this a #simplestamping card – stamps, ink and paper.  Peel and stick embellishments don’t change how simple it is.

Gather your wish list and get ready to order on March 1st.  I’ll be leaving the February Host code open for the first few days in March so you can continue to use that code.  I send a little surprise in your thank you card when you do.

Twinkle Twinkle Birthday Cards

I’m still in Orlando and have a fun card to share with you today.  I created this one for a Birthday Card Swap at OnStage this week.  While the Twinkle Twinkle paper is shown as a baby/kids paper in the catalog I used it here as birthday.   With the patterns and the stars I think it’s a fun birthday design.  The designer paper is the featured item on this card design so it’s easy to take this idea and use it with different paper. I also made a card like this with some of the Christmas paper but I’ll show you that one another time.

This card uses a 4″ strip of Designer paper that is folded.  The outside of the card shows one side of the paper and the inside shows the other.  For this one I used the Twinkle Twinkle paper and created birthday cards.  Just like my last swap I used the different papers from the pack and created variations of the same card.  There are 6 different ones – I switched out the Baker’s Twine and the color of the Starburst punched piece depending on the paper I used. Which one is your favorite?

Supply List

  • Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper
  • Gray Granite card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Night of Navy card stock
  • Gray Granite ink
  • Silver & Petal Pink Baker’s Twine
  • Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine
  • Whisper White & Silver Baker’s Twine
  • Twinkle Adhesive Backed Stars
  • Starbust Punch
  • 2″ Circle Punch
  • Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set

Here is a look at the inside of the card. You can see the other side of the Designer Series paper.  I added the White panel to write the inside message for the card. 

 

These were the cards I create for the Birthday swap that I hosted at OnStage.  I hope everyone that participated enjoyed the cards they received.  It’s so fun to see everyone’s different creations.

Roommates are the best

One of the best parts of a Stampin’ Up! Event is staying in the hotel and having fun with your roommates.  I remember my very first Stampin’ Up! event – I was brand new and didn’t know anyone.  The only person I had met before was my upline and she was staying with someone already.  So I had to make a new friend and found someone that needed a roommate for convention that year. 

My family thought I was crazy going out of state and meeting a stranger in a hotel and staying there!  I figured if I needed to I’d just go find myself my own room somewhere else.  But guess what I walked in that door and met Michele.  That was 13 years ago and guess what – she is going to be one of my room mates again this week!  We have stayed together many times over the years. 

Roommates really are the best.  This year we have a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite and there will be 7 of us rooming together.  Members of my PAWS team will be joining me and I’m so excited.  I made some cute gifts for them.  We often call them pillow gifts because you leave them on the pillow.  I started with a totally different idea but it did not come together.  So I ended up with this idea and I love how it turned out.

I stuck with the Mickey theme again.  After I made the little friend gifts I decided I wanted to make Mickey tags for my room mates.  Everyone’s has their name on it and if they want to they can transfer them to the bag that Stampin’ Up! will give us.  If all 7000 of us have the same bag you need something to distinguish yours from everyone else’s. 

Supply List

  • 1-1/2″ Circle punch
  • 1″ Circle punch
  • Scalloped Tag Topper Punch
  • Daffodil Delight card stock
  • Real Red card stock
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Cookie Cutter punch
  • Make a Difference stamp set
  • Black Memento Ink
  • White Stampin’ Chalk Marker

Inside the black canvas mini bag is a Cupcake in a Mug mix and frosting – so we can make birthday cupcakes.  Plus napkins, a spoon and then I have the mug. I also brought mickey themed snacks for us – including more oreos and also goldfish. I found those at the grocery store. Now we have to figure out which night to have our cupcakes.
