Oodles & oodles!!

 

THAT'S how many cards I made! 

 

 

Like I said yesterday...

 

I used a very basic design--with some DSP, ribbon and enamel dots I didn't wanna part with.

I'm kinda lovin' the Tailored Tag Punch vertical!

Of course, it works great with my Vertical Greetings set!

I think the black, white and yellow is actually my favorite of all these.

 

Just a little bit of sunshine!

 

 

Have a wonderful day!!

Don't let it slip from your hands!

 

SOMEHOW I always have a bunch of Designer Paper left at the end of the SU! catalog year!

 

Ribbon too!

 

 

Well, I wasn't ready to just give it all up this year!!

AND after the stamping I did at our Craft Night a few weeks ago, I was just IN THE MOOD to do more stamping!!!

 

 

Here's one of my favorites using Foil Frenzy DSP that I made a bunch of:

 

It has a subtle foil look that you have to tilt just right to see--and especially when trying to get a pic!

I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!

It makes great accents to Christmas cards, too!

 

And it's retiring, of course. 

 

Foil designs: chevron, stripes & dots

Foil Frenzy colors: Kraft (base), Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky & Tangerine Tango foils

 

Oh--and the Enamel Shapes are discounted and retiring, too!

 

 

Here's the list:

 

 

I'll share some more of these quick card designs later.

 

 

Enjoy your day!!

More Than Chocolate

 

Welcome back to Monday! ;)

 

I have some chocolates to share with you. :D

 

The set is retiring and I FINALLY used it this month at my clubs to show the Stamparatus!

 

More Than Chocolate, Timeless Textures, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

More Than Chocolate, Timeless Textures, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

More Than Chocolate, Timeless Textures, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

Inside our circle "box" of chocolates:

  • First we stamped ALL the chocolates at the same time on one plate of stamps.
  • Then we stamped our Berry Burst chocolate decorations with a second plate of stamps.
  • Last we stamped our Lemon Lime Twist chocolate decorations after flipping our plate and inking up those stamps.

 

 

The Stamparatus was definitely the way to go with this set!

 

There are LOTS of pieces to get positioned just right!

 

 

Here's what we used:

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Friday is the last day retiring stamp sets are guaranteed to be available.

 

All other retiring items are while supplies last!

 

 

Have an amazing day and week!

Another Team Swap!

 

Those of you who know Nadine Stolt, KNOW that she loves making 3-D type stuff!

 

 

Well, while the rest of us made a card for our team swap, Nadine made us this:

 

Suitcase Lotion Gift Box, Gotta Have It All (SWYL) bundle, created by Nadine Stolt, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

She had many color choices--all from the Share What You Love DSP.

 

These flower embellishments & the stamped label are from the embellishment kit included in the larger 2 SWYL bundles available right now.

Stamparatus sample + videos again!

 

YOU CAN ORDER THE STAMPARATUS JUNE 1!! (noon MT)

 

And I know a few people for whom this is at the TOP of their wish list!

 

We made this card at one of my clubs last month.

 

Waterfront, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

We used the Stamparatus for the mountains and trees.

 

 

 

Do you know what the Stamparatus is?

 

It is:

  • a positioning tool for photopolymer and clear mount stamps
  • PERFECT for the OCD/Perfectionist
  • wonderful for the rest of us, too!
  • FAR better--incomparably so--than the Stamp-a-ma-jig
  • the best on the market! (SU! knew what they were doing!)
  • a potential lifesaver
  • FABULOUS!! (just ask Ann....blew her mind!!!)
  • $49

 

It can help you:

  • stamp your image(s) exactly where you want it
  • do that MULTIPLE times (several of the same project)
  • do that easily with 4 different stamps (2 plates, 4 sides = 4 stamps)
  • stamp an image again that you didn't ink up well enough!! (it stamps right back in the same place!!)
  • stamp the same image several times evenly on the same project--stacked in columns:
    • thank you
    • thank you
    • thank you
  • do lots more things, I'm sure !

 

 

 

What should YOU do???

 

TAKE TIME TO WATCH THE VIDEOS!!! PLEASE.

Even if you only have time to watch 1 a day--come back!!

 

It's an amazing tool that you'll love; and it will help you get familiar with it before you buy it/use it.

 

When you do buy it, BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL with the magnets!

They are VERY STRONG and BRITTLE.

 

For whoever asked recently, YES, there are replacements available for $12/set of 2.

 

 

Btw, in the above card, the Soft Sky color and Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon is retiring.

 

 

Before I give you the videos, don't forget to preorder your Color Coach!

They will be:

  • $8 if you pick it up
  • $13 if I mail it to you
  • FREE if you spend $75 in June with me.

 

PLEASE TAKE THE 5-min SURVEY TO PREORDER YOURS!

CLICK HERE FOR THE SURVEY by May 21!

 

 

 

Enjoy the videos!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have an amazing rest of your day!!

Mommy & Me for Mother's Day!

 

Happy Monday, people!

 

I had a fun Saturday morning with some cuties!

 

 

Emma & Olivia had been waiting since March, because I had to cancel on them!

 

When we FINALLY met, they chatted non-stop!

SO much to share!! ;)

 

But I forgot to ask them about their recent Disney trip.

Maybe it was for the best...we MAY not have ever gotten started stamping!! ;)

 

We had a great time!

 

 

I couldn't resist making the Mini Milk Cartons with them that I had originally planned.

 

(Grandma) Deb, Emma, & Olivia at Mommy & Me Class, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Mini Milk Carton, Wood Words, Picture Perfect Birthday DSP, www.dazzledbystamping.com
 

We were also joined by my sister Danielle and nieces Hayden & Morgan!

 

They had fun, too--and enjoyed the younger girls. ;)

 

Morgan, (Mom) Danielle & Hayden at Mommy & Me Class, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I didn't catch pics of anyone with the card we also made.

 

But I still wanted to share.

This DSP attracted my eye immediately in last year's catalog.

 

And I think this month is the FIRST TIME I used this gorgeous black design!!

(I MUST have used it somewhere before.)

 

Flourishing Phrases (words), Timeless Textures (dots), Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, www.dazzledbystamping.com
 

 

I hope you already got your Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, cuz it's gone!!

 

When Danielle was done stamping, she said, "I would have never thought to put flowers and stripes and dots together!"

 

It made me realize again how AWESOME Stampin' Up! is!!

They do SO MUCH of the thinking FOR ME!

 

Afterall, I just put together 2 DSPs that were already in the same pack!

 

And of course, I added the dots.

 

Flourishing Phrases (words), Timeless Textures (dots), Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, www.dazzledbystamping.com

Btw, THIS is Tangerine Tango.

If you missed it on the list, it's one of the retiring Core SU! colors.

Get it while you can!

 

 

The words stamp set is Flourishing Phrases (NOT retiring).

INSIDE says:  SO HE MADE YOU.

 

 

There's also an 'I love you' stamp in there which Olivia needed to use. ;)

 

 

A little funny: it cracks me up at my Mommy & Me Classes....it seems every time there's SOMEONE who asks, "can I lick it closed now?"

 

(and NO, it's never already written in.)

 

Hee hee!

And it always seems like it's one with a little extra personality! :D

 

 

LOVE these classes!!

 

 

 

 

Before I go, here are a few dates I just put on my calendar:

 

  • NEW CATALOG OPEN HOUSE--pick your day! This is a free event, and an RSVP is not required. But it's helpful! Specials/hostess code will be added to the event later.

Thursday, 6/21, 1:30pm-8:30pm RSVP

Saturday, 6/23, 9:30am-12:30pm RSVP

 

  • CRAFT THE NIGHT AWAY!!--come craft with us! Stamp, scrap, sew...whatever you'd like. It's a perfect night to get a bunch done--in a relaxed, no pressure atmosphere!

Saturday, 7/7, 6pm-midnight RSVP

 

 

I'm not sure how soon I'm adding other classes to my calendar....

 

If I don't already have something scheduled (typically clubs) when Todd's softball schedule comes out, Mondays and Tuesdays are reserved to go cheer! :) Love to watch him play!!

 

And July is VERY FULL with clubs and a CRUISE!!! :D

 

BUT if you have a specific request--and ESPECIALLY if you're interested in a DAY class, let me know!!

 

  • I know of someone interested in a Birthday Stack that could be a day class. Anyone else?
  • Mommy & Me Class?

 

 

 

Ok, that's all for now!

 

Have a wonderful day!!
