2017 Occasions Catalog Falling in Love

Today is the final day of the Stylin’ Stampin INKspiration 2017 Occasions Catalog Countdown.  It’s also the first day of Sale-A-Bration!!  3 months of great deals through Stampin’ Up!  During Sale-A-Bration, you get a free item for every $50 you spend!

Featuring Falling In Love Suite…

I needed a Retirement Card and as I thumbed through my new Falling In Love Designer Series Paper, I noticed many beautiful papers that could be used for any occasion.  Don’t you just love the colors?!!

This is one of my favorite folds & you’ll see it again & again on my blog.  CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTIONS.

Stampin’ Up! has the perfect Retirement Stamp Set!  Wild About Flowers.  Here’s a close up:

That’s 2-Step Stampin’!  One stamp for the stems (Sahara Sand).  Another for the flowers (Sweet Sugarplum).  Easy!  And notice the Gold Wink of Stella!


Originally I had planned to use the other side of the paper with the butterflies, but I changed my mind.  Here’s a picture of the butterfly side.

Which paper do you like best?  I keep going back & forth.

Sale-A-Bration is the perfect time to host a party!  Get some friends together and I’ll bring the projects!!  Always a fun time!!  And as hostess, you’ll earn free items!  It would be fun to have a Valentine’s Day Theme!  Contact me ASAP to reserve your date!

Be sure & hop over to the SSINK Team Site to see what they’ve done with this beautiful suite!  I had only pre-ordered the paper, but I see a stamp set called Falling For You, doilies, embellishments, and a beautiful embossing folder that are part of this set.  Maybe the design team will show us some of those goodies!

Happiest of Birthdays!

I’m still playing with my fun fold idea (see here for the card instructions).

Happiest of Birthdays

Love this DSP!!  It’s called Birthday Bouquet & you’ll find it in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.

Here are a couple of Retirement Cards I was asked to make, just to give you some ideas…

Stamp Sets:  The Open Sea & Wild About Flowers

If you’d ever like to order my cards, click on SHOP on the top of my blog!  You can also request custom cards like my friend did with these Retirement Cards.  She needed some for men & some for women and wanted them long to fit an office sized envelope.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wild About Flowers

My card today features 2-step stamping!  The new stamp set, Wild About Flowers, allows you to stamp 2 stamps that make 1 image.  Simple & pretty!

The fold was easy to do.  You just cut your cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score at 5 1/2″.  Then score the front in half at 2 3/4″.  It’s called a “Joy Fold”.

Here’s what it looks like when you open it.

I think it works well to glue your inside first (after stamping) and then line up the front oval to go over it.

I used Wild Wasabi Seam Binding on this next one.  Which one do you like best?

Here’s a picture from the top so you can see how it opens:
