Birthday Card Idea Using Counting Sheep

I have been creating some really fun cards using the FREE stamps, dies, and designer series paper that I earned with my Sale-a-bration order.

This fun fold box card was created using the FREE Counting Sheep stamp set and also the Free Sheep Dies.

I also used the cloud stencil that was in the March Paper Pumpkin to decorate the box card.

I just love these Sheep Dies and only used 3 of them on this box card.  I can’t wait to create a card with a fence or that flag reminds me of a golf course so maybe I will make some golfing sheep ha-ha-ha.

Remember you can place an order from the Annual and/or Mini Catalog to be able to take part in Sale-A-Bration and get yourself some of these great FREE products.  In my last post I showed all of the great products that we get to choose from.  To see them all just click here FREE gifts.

I will be sharing more cards that I created using some of the designers series paper that is available in the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Birthday Card and Gift Box Idea using Stampin’ Up!s Pansy Patch

Happy Wednesday and Happy Summer!

I’m happy the calendar now says its summer because living in Florida it kinda feels like summer arrived a few months ago already.

Before I get into my birthday card and gift box idea I need to share with you that Tomorrow Only June 24th Stampin’ Up! has FREE Shipping on all orders over $50 for products before shipping and tax would be calculated.

OK, so now that you know about tomorrows free shipping, Today I want to share with you a birthday card and gift box that I created using the Pansy Patch stamp set with coordinating dies and Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! has this awesome Pansy Patch stamp set with coordinating dies and designers series paper.  You can purchase these products separately or the entire suite called Pansy Petals.

The box is a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box that I decorated using everything in the Pansy Petals suite along with Pacific Coast, Fresh Freesia and Basic White cardstock.

There are so many different ways to use this set.  You can stamp each image with any color from our classic Stampin’ Ink Pad (since flowers come in all colors) then using the die just cut one image or in this card example I used the dies and cut each piece out in basic white cardstock then sponged the colors for a shaded look.  I also used this same technique in a post last month called Pansy Patch Garden.

I love using the new Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, it doesn’t take up a lot of room on your work area which makes it so easy to make these cute pansy flowers.

I will also be showing you examples of just stamping with this wonderful stamp set in my next post.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Card Idea

It’s getting really warm here in North Florida and nothing tastes better on a hot day than ice cream.  Sunday before going to the beach with my girlfriend we made a quick stop to Dairy Queen for an ice cream cone.

So when I got home after a great day, I decided to create this cute card using the Sweet Ice Cream Stampin’ Up! Bundle along with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

You can use this stamp set for so many kinds of cards, Birthday, Thank You, and just to send someone a little hello because you are thinking of them.

Since you can’t send ice cream in the mail I think sending someone “cool” ice cream wishes with a handmade card will definitely put a smile on there face, or make them go out for some ice cream with friends or family.

I will be sharing a few more card ideas using the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set along with the coordinating Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch and Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.

This Designer Series Paper is so super colorful and with the images of ice cream cones and Popsicle sticks and the fun sprinkle paper, you can just cut this fun paper or you can use some dies from another set such as Hippo & Friends which has so many different shaped frames that you can stamp your sentiment on and maybe even add some layers as I did for a simple fun card.

Just a reminder – This bundle and all coordinating stamps, punches, papers and sprinkles is available in the Mini Catalog on pages 48 and 49.  This Mini  catalog sales period ends on June 30th.

So, If you want to purchase this fun stamp stamp and punch as a bundle you have until June 30th to save 10%.  After that time the 10% savings in no longer available but you will still be able to purchase separately.

***If you love this Designer Series Paper called Ice Cream Corner you should get it while it is still available in the Mini Catalog.  This item will not be available in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy The SUnshine!

Sneak Peek ~ Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Bundle

Happy Monday!

Today I am giving you a sneak peek of the Pansy Patch stamp set and dies, that will be available in the new Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog next week May 4, 2021

I created this paper Pansy Patch garden with the new bundle that is going to be released next week.  This bundle puts such a smile on my face since I love pansies.  These flowers always look so happy to me – am I the only one who thinks they look happy?

Another great thing about this bundle is that all the dies in this set can be used with our Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

I cut the parts of the Pansy using the Pansy Dies in the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine on Basic White cardstock.

Then the real fun was coloring the flowers using Sponge Daubers with some of the New 2021-2023 In Colors.  These New In Colors are gorgeous, and of course they all intertwine perfectly with all of our other beautiful colors Stampin’ Up! offers.

You will be able to find this Pansy Patch Suite on page 28, the New 2021-2023 In Colors on page 123 of the New catalog, along with another 176 pages of the most awesome products ever.  I know that you are going to love the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog just as much as I do


To finish my Pansy Garden, I also used the **Butterfly Gala stamp set with coordinating **Butterfly Duet punch, and the sentiment from **Country Home stamp set.

I have made many Birthday and Thank You cards using the **Butterfly Gala stamps with and without the punch.  Creating cards with the **Country Home stamp set is a great for Thanksgiving or a pick me up card just to make someone’s day a little brighter.

** Both of these stamp sets and punch are on the Last Chance Products Sale/Retiring List, so if you don’t have these great products, and you love them, you have to order them today! I don’t want you to miss them when they are gone.

Stay tuned for more Sneak Peeks from this wonderful New Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Until next my friends,

Enjoy The SUnshine!
