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.

My Hero

Today’s card is back to showcasing a retiring set.  Although this set and the matching punch will be sticking around my house.  This set is perfect for Military, Law Enforcement and especially a super Father’s Day card.

I paired this lovely stamp with the True Gentleman DSP.  It is another beautiful Designer Series Paper that is super for use in all kinds of projects.  It is layered on Chocolate Chip.  The card base is Thick Very Vanilla with a layer of Crumb Cake on top.  And do not forget this perfect badge punch.  Unfortunately is is retiring as well, so get it while you can.

The badge also gives you a bit of a sneak peek at a couple of new colors.  The gold is Mango Melody and the blue is Blueberry Bushel.  Both are gorgeous !!

Thank you for visiting today.  I very much appreciate your taking time to stop by.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Another Paper Pumpkin Special:  The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out.  So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that.  New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price.  So 2 months for the price of 1.  A great deal.  Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418


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.
