Before I get to today’s card, I have two announcements.  Today through the end of the month of June there are two specials going on in the Stampin’ Up! world.

The first is the Designer Series Paper Sale!  For this month, DSP that is on pages 129-132 are on sale for 15% off!  Plus, the Hello Irresistible DSP from the Online Exclusives is also included.  Woohoo!!!  There is a flyer at the bottom of the post showing all of the papers.

And the second special is a Starter Kit Special!  There is a flyer for it as well further down in the post.  But it has a $56.00 additional Free Items for the regular $99.00 price of the Starter Kit.  The Starter Kit is the ultimate bundle!  And now through the end of the month you get to choose $155.00 of product of your choice for $99.00.

Today’s Card

The card I have to share today is a really quick one.  One of the punches from the last Mini Catalog that I use regularly carried over to the new Annual Catalog.  And as a bonus, it has a new matching stamp set!  Woohoo!!


Stampin' Up!, Handmade Hugs, Handmade Tag Punch, Les Shoppe DSP, Boho Blue, Jackie Beers


Stamp and Punch

This stamp and punch pair perfectly as they are intended to.  But they are not a Bundle.  Hopefully you already have the punch from the Mini Catalog.  This is the Handmade Tag Punch.  Personally, I love the unusual shape of this punch.  Getting another matching stamp set is just icing on the cake!  I actually punched the stamped image as well as another piece of Flirty Flamingo.  That piece is rotated to peek out from behind.

The stamp set is the Handmade Hugs stamp set.  It is on page 23 of the catalog.  This sentiment is a favorite for me.  I believe sending someone a card is like sending a hug.  That expression came about during Covid and i am still loving it!  The sentiment is stamped using Flirty Flamingo ink and the outline is stamped using Night of Navy Ink.  The colors perfectly match the DSP.


This card came about from the piece of DSP.  I was looking through the papers for inspiration and saw this piece.  It is a back side of one of the Les Shoppe Designer Series Papers.  The brightness of the Night of Navy called to me.  Pairing it with Flirty Flamingo might not have been a consideration were they not in this piece of DSP.  Now I love the pairing.


The finishes on this card are as simple as the card itself.  I wrapped a length of the Boho Blue Ribbon around the layers.  The loop is an upside down version of the bookmark loop.  It was done for a little diffeent look.  And the bling is provided by the 2022-2024 In Color Pearls.  We can make our own pearls by coloring white ones with Stampin’ Blends.  But these are so easy and pretty so no need for that.

Thank you for stopping by today!!!
