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.

Love Blossom Suite

Let me introduce you to the new Love Blossoms Suite from the 2016 Occasions Catalog.


I actually had the opportunity to introduce this suite of products to about 400 demonstrators at the Tampa On Stage Local Event in November.  I was on stage in front of everyone and extremely nervous – but I did it!




There are lights and cameras and screens and timers and so many different things to remember when you get on that stage including what in the world I was supposed to be saying!  I introduced all the products that are included in the suite and showed how to cut out the new Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies along with the new Big Shot Die Brush.

I made a few samples for a display board here are a couple of those:

I’ll share some more of the ideas and info from my presentation in another post – this one is getting long.

Thanks for stopping by and have fun drooling over that new Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration free items!

Convention Product Display Boards plus a sneak peek

At the Stampin’ Up! Convention there are always lots of display boards.  I think this year there were more than ever before.  So many that I didn’t even have time to look at most of them.  Part of the displays include Product Display Boards – these always showcase products from the catalog in a fun way – here are some from this year –

accessoriesAccessories – including Designer Series paper, Ribbons, Candy Dots, buttons and more.

color-coordination Color Coordination – this is one of the best things about Stampin’ Up! products – the color coordination!  And look how pretty when they are displayed on a board like this.

Kits-this-thatKits and This & That – fun new product lines in the catalog.

stampsStamps – new stamp sets are in every catalog.  You can choose wood mount or clear mount plus we now have the photopolymer sets too.  And the new stamp cases for the wood mount sets are awesome!  I have been adding a package or two to every order so I can move my existing sets from the old boxes to the new ones.

toolsTools – lots of tools and the newest one is the Magnetic Platform for the Big Shot.  It is so popular that what Stampin’ Up! predicted would be a 13 week supply sold out in only 3 weeks!!  So if you are wondering why you don’t have yours or why you can’t order it right now that is the reason.  They are filling all the backs orders as they get in a new supply and plan to be caught up hopefully in a month or so.  I’m thinking wow – I wonder if it will be the #1 selling item for this year?


Yes this was a surprise new product that they showed us at convention and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.  It is an Envelope Punch Board – I can’t show you what it looks like yet – but this is what you can make.

66 Different Sizes of Envelopes!

envelope-punch-boardI don’t know the exact date yet but when it is available I’ll let you know.

Have a great day!
