New Stampin’ Blends Colors and NEW Bundle Available August 1st!

Last week I received an order with all of the new Stampin’ Blends colors!  They are finally back in stock, and the new colors are gorgeous!  For this card, I used Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green (both light and dark shades of both), as well as Daffodil Delight for the centers of the flowers.  The large floral stamp is from a brand new stamp set called Blended Seasons, which will be available for a limited time beginning August 1st!  (More about that soon!)  I paired the colored floral image with the new color Mango Melody, because I just love the combo of these three colors together!

Another new product I used on this card is the Big Shot Embossing Mats.  These new mats allow you to use cutting dies to emboss, rather than cut.  So the floral images along the right side of the card were actually made with a cutting die!  These new mats provide so many more options for decorating and adding detail to projects!  Here’s a close up of the detail on the embossed edge:

The die I used for the embossing is from a new set called the Stitched Seasons Framelits.  These new dies are part of the same limited time offer as the Blended Seasons stamp set.  The stamps and dies will be available separately, as well as in a bundle (save 10%), again, beginning August 1st!

Other products used on this card include the Touches of Texture stamp set, Stitched All Around stamp set, and Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  I also added just a touch of Clear Wink of Stella to the insides of the flowers for a bit of shine!


Measurements for this card are as follows: 

Mango Melody card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Poppy Parade card stock strip:  2-5/8 x 5-1/2 inches

Whisper White card stock strip:  2-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches

Floral stamp image:  2-3/4 x 4 inches (fussy cut)

Sentiment die cut:  5/8 x 2-7/8 inches


I am a huge fan of the new Brights colors, and I love the way these three look together!  Please stay tuned for more information regarding the new stamps and dies, as I will be posting everything you need to know about it sometime in the next few days!

Thanks for checking in today!  Enjoy your day!

Share What You Love Suite OnStage Make and Take

Today’s project is one of the make and take projects we made at last month’s OnStage event!  This card uses multiple products from the NEW Share What You Love Suite, which is now available as an early release from Stampin’ Up!  All of the products used on this card can be ordered NOW instead of waiting until June 1st, when the rest of the new catalog becomes available for ordering!  This card was my favorite of the four projects we created at OnStage!

The base of this card is the returning Mint Macaron! I am so excited that this color has returned as a core color!  It is one of my all time favorites, and I am thrilled that it is back!  This color, combined with the rest of the colors in the suite, makes for some stunning color combinations!

This card utilizes many of the products in the new suite including the following:

  • Love What You Do stamp set
  • Share What You Love Artisan Pearls
  • Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon
  • Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Pearlized Doilies

It also features Mint Macaron card stock, vellum card stock, and Memento Black Ink.  Also, the corners of the sentiment piece were cut with a 1/2 inch circle punch to make the inverted rounded corners.


Measurements for this card are as follows:

Mint Macaron Card stock Base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Vellum layer:  3-1/4 x 4-1/4 inches

DSP layer:  3 x 4 inches

Raspberry Velvet Ribbon:  4-1/4 inches

Whisper White sentiment piece:  1-3/8 x 2-5/8 inches

DSP strip behind ribbon and sentiment:  3-9/16 x 3/4 inches

Share What You Love Suite Early Release Begins May 1st

Over the past couple of weeks I have shared a number of projects I created using a brand new stamp set called the Love What You Do stamp set.  It is definitely my favorite of the three sets that I received for my OnStage display board!  I only received the stamp set, but it is actually part of an entire suite of products that is going to be released on May 1st to customers, a WHOLE MONTH before the Annual Catalog goes live on June 1st!  For the early release, the stamp set will be available as part of three exclusive bundles which will ONLY be available during the month of May.  Once the catalog ordering period begins on June 1st, everything in the bundles will still be available, but will only be available separately.  Each bundle also includes at least one FREE GIFT when purchased during the early release, which makes this offer even sweeter!  So let’s take a peek at each of the bundles and what is included in each:

The Just Getting Started Bundle

This bundle is the most basic of the three, and is perfect for beginning stampers!  It includes a free gift of Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes (a $6.50 value)!  This bundle costs $57.00 (before tax and shipping), and the item number is 149524.


The A Little More, Please Bundle

This bundle is a bit of a step up from the first and includes TWO stamp sets, as well as TWO free gifts: a package of Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes AND the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit (an $18.00 combined value)!  This bundle costs $91.50 (before tax and shipping), and the item number is 149525.


The Gotta Have it All Bundle

This is the most inclusive bundle available and includes THREE free gifts!  The free gifts include the two gifts from the previous bundle, as well as an exclusive stamp called the Statement of My Heart Stamp (a $30.00 combined value).  This bundle costs $127.50 (before tax and shipping), and the item number is 149526.


2018-2020 In Color Ink Pads Bundle

In addition to the three Share What You Love bundles, the early release also includes a bundle of the NEW 2018-2020 In Color Ink Pads!  Get all FIVE colors in the NEW ink pad style for only $33.75, which is a savings of 10% off the cost of them separately!  This is a great way to get the new colors early AND save a bit of money at the same time!  The item number for the In Color ink pad bundle is 147153.

So there you have it!  Which one(s) will you choose?  All of these bundles are available for purchase starting May 1st!  They may be ordered in the online store, or directly through me via email at!  If you are a new customer, purchasing any of these bundles through me will also guarantee you a copy of the NEW Annual Catalog, which will be delivered sometime in mid-May!  I would love to add you to my list!  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!  🙂

Enjoy your day!

The more you spend, the more you earn!  Sale-a-Bration is a GREAT time to stock up on all of your consumables like cardstock, adhesives, envelopes, Designer Series paper, and more!  It adds up quickly, and so do the freebies.  But Sale-a-Bration only lasts until March 31st.  So take advantage of these offers while you can!

During Sale-a-Bration, if you spend $100 (before tax and shipping), you get $100 worth of product and TWO Sale-a-Bration items for free (or one larger $100 item choice).  You also spend $10 on shipping.  But if you JOIN Stampin’ Up during Sale-a-Bration, you spend $99, you get $125 of product, any TWO additional stamp sets, and it ships to you for FREE!  Depending which stamp sets you choose, that can add up to another $101 in value to your kit!  You also get a free Paper Pumpkin kit (a $20 value) and a separate welcome gift from me ($25 in value), so your total value could be as much as $271, but you only pay $99 (plus tax)!  And again it ships for FREE!  Moving forward, you also get 20% off all future orders, which can bump up to 25% later.  And you can get all of this without ever selling to anyone or having any parties!  You can join and keep the discount just for yourself!  For more info about joining Stampin’ Up, please click the icon below, or click HERE for a list of Frequently Asked Questions about becoming a demonstrator during Sale-a-Bration.  I would love to welcome you to my team!  🙂
