Sending Hugs

I hope you enjoyed the Pals Blog Hop yesterday.  There were some great cards on there.  I have a Poppy card to share for today.  I am sending hugs to anyone in need of a big hug!  I personally love hugs.


Stampin' Up!, Poppy Moments, Painted Poppies, Ornate Frames, Perfectly Framed, Jackie Beers


On this card, I did the opposite of the previous card with the die cut poppies.   You can see that card HERE.  If truth be told, I made an oopsy!!!!  When I was cutting  I placed the wrong die on the DSP.  But I thought “why not see how it looks”.  That’s what I get for not paying attention at the cutting machine!  I am thrilled that it does work by giving just a hint of the DSP.

I stamped the tall poppy with the attached bud a couple of times and colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I then placed the two large die cut poppies over them and raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I like the look it gives.

The sentiment is from the Perfectly Framed stamp set.  It coordinates with the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday Catalog.  They carried over and were from a Halloween set.  They are gorgeous frames with layers and curly pieces.  I love when new things coordinate with old.  I feel like I get more for my money.

Speaking of more bang for your buck.  Have you checked out the new items that released last week?  They all coordinate with products from the Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs.  The DSP is especially awesome as it coordinates with the various punches that are new in those catalogs.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you will come back tomorrow.

We are half way through February.  That means we have 1 1/2 months left on Sale-A-Bration.  Please check out what I have pointed out with the SAB Join Promotion.  I wish I could get that amount of product for that price!  It really is the most wonderful shopping spree!  If you are at all curious, I would love to talk with you about the promotion and the benefits of being a demonstrator.


The Ultimate Bundle is the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit.  During Sale-A-Bration you get the extra value for your $99.00.  If you have a wish list or are ready to place an order and it totals close to 99.00, please read this first.

There is NO OBLIGATIONS to do anything beyond ordering the kit. You pay $99.00 + tax and receive $125.00 of your choice of products + any stamp set from the annual or mini catalog (the most expensive one is the Well Said set with a $45.00 price) + the Mini Paper Cutter, a $26.50 value + the 6X6 DSP sampler pack (48 sheets of DSP) an $11.50 value + a Paper Pumpkin Kit with a value of $22.00 + FREE Shipping which is usually 10% of the order and would add another $23.00 value here.  This equals over $230.00 value + business supplies added in at no cost.  That is an awesome deal!!  And you never have to purchase another thing.  But while you are trying it out, and you have until the end of July before your trial period runs out, you are part of my Team!  As well as my upline’s team.  We have Facebook groups to share our projects and assist each other.  I would love to talk with you about this opportunity.

Memorial Day


Today I am sharing a couple of cards that I have made previously for occasions such as Memorial Day.  We owe our freedom to those brave soldiers who were not able to retire from the military or be appreciated for their service to our country.

This card was from last Memorial Day.  You can click HERE to see that post.


All Things Thanks, 143097


This one was a July 4th post quite a while ago.  But it fits the bill for today just the same.  You can click HERE to view that post.


Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you have enjoyed a weekend with family and friends.  Please think of our military and especially those who did not return home.

I hope you will return tomorrow for a new project.  I will be saying goodbye to one of my favorite designer series papers.  The stamp and dies will be staying around though.  Does that give you a hint???

Thank You !

The title should read Thank You For Your Service!!  Although we are thanking the service men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice . Remembering those who did not come home is the hardest I believe.  I am very appreciative of all our Service Men and Women.   So please remember them today as you are celebrating with family and friends.

To honor our fallen heroes, I could not find my military stamp set. So I created what I hope will be appreciated.  I used the Ribbon Of Courage and my Stampin’ Write Markers.

Of course, my colors are Red , White, and Blue.  I colored the stamp with the red, left the center uncolored, and the bottom in blue.  I then went around the edges and inside lines with the Black Stampin’ Write Marker to define everything.  It actually turned out like I envisioned it!  that doesn’t happen very often.

Thank you for taking the time to check my card today.  I very much appreciate it.  I hope you can enjoy this day with family and friends.   My thoughts are also with those having damage from the storm.  The supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
