Guy Greetings & More

Today I wanted to share some of the swaps that I made in Sherrie’s Shoe box swap at OnStage. I enjoy this event and stamping with demonstrators from all over North America. It’s face paced, and fun since we swap 40 cards in 3 hours!

Today’s cards use stamp sets and other products that are all part of the Last Chance List and will be retiring in May. I’m really sad to see this first set, Guy Greetings (138825/138828) go. I love using it for those guys in my life.

It has a fun fold too.

I love the colors we used for this card – It uses our True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper (145593), Night of Navy 3/8″ Corduroy Ribbon (145597) and Tranquil Tide 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon too (144136). Rich bold and perfect for those dudes in our life.

And here is a fun card that has no stamping on it – Our Big Shot Celebration Duo Embossing Folders (142760) and Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies (137547) were used to create the bright bold card.

And how about this soft and subtle card a mask and sponging create this lovely focal point.

The final stamping was done in our Archival Basic Black Ink (140931) using our Thoughts & Prayers (128751/127805) and Touches of Texture (1419341/143251) stamp sets.

This next card uses the You’ve Got This stamp set (139572/139575) and it is done with our Watercolor Pencils and teamed up with our Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Stack (144131).

And finally this bright bold card using the Pansy Punch (130698) and coordinating stamp set, Birthday Blossoms (139167/139471).

The sentiment is from our Picture Perfect (145519) set and the color palette is pulled from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (144185). Can you see the stripes created with the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder (145648) on the Lemon Lime Twist background?

Our Last Chance List promotion is currently in full swing, so why not stop by my online store and see what items are going away at the end of May?

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a fun nugget treat video tutorial I made for my 3d swaps at OnStage.

Bear Hugs for Father

Check out this cute card I received from Leslee using the adorable Bear Hugs stamp set and Framelit Dies found in the Occasions Catalog on page 40.

Cute right? What father wouldn’t love getting this card?

And you can purchase this set and framelits in a money saving bundle (140822/140823) while supplies last or until May 31st when the Occasions Catalog ends. (While you’ll find these items in our 2016 Annual Catalog they won’t be offered in the Bundle any longer.)

And here are some more wonderful masculine cards I received from my fellow demonstrators in swaps.

This first one was given to me by Trudy. She used the stamp set From Land to Sea (138720/139361) and created the sand dunes using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set (139971).

From Land to Sea SC 2015 Annual Catalog Swap

Clever girl – I love it when you can use stamps and punches for other things!

And finally this card uses one of my favorite sets, Guy Greetings (138825/138828/137178).

Guy Greetings OnStage 2015 Shoebox Swap (1)

I love all the texture on this card – It uses the Boho Chic (138286), and  two of our retiring Embossing folders, Honeycomb (129378) and Chevron  (127749).

I can’t pick a favorite. How about you? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best!

Today I’ll be sharing some more of the swaps I received. This first card from Geralyn uses the No Bones About It stamps set (138756) and is bright and cheerful.

No Bones About It (2)

While clean and simple on the outside it packs a wonderful surprise on the inside.

No Bones About It (1)

I love the way Geralyn used the Tree Builder Punch (138295) and Fringe scissors (133325) to give a panorama feel to this card.

This next card from Joyce and uses the Garden in Bloom stamp set (139433).

Garden in Bloom

And of course, Irene created a great card using the Guy Greetings stamp set (138825/138828/137178) and the 2015-2017 Envelope Paper (138312).

Guy Greetings (1)

Isn’t it great that you can use our Envelope Paper for all kinds of different things? While the weight is much lighter than our regular Designer Series Paper you still get wonderful patterns in each package!

And this final card is from Jenny and it uses the Gift from the Garden stamp set (138718/139356).

Gift from the Garden

This set is perfect for those of us who love to garden or have someone in their lives who do.

Team Fun & More

I was trying to be good today and get my gardening done before it got too hot. So, happily I can say I now have the mound of squash an zucchini off my kitchen counter top and into the freezer. That is until we pick again tonight. Half of the freezer is full of squash now so I’m thinking… planting another round isn’t necessary. My husband, Larry was a bit worried we wouldn’t have enough since the plants are already dying. I’ve got about 80 containers filled with my Baked Squash Recipe now. LOL!  (Click HERE to see my recipe that I shared last year.)

So I’m taking a break and thought I’d share the great cards I made during some Team meetings last month. Part of the fun is sharing ideas, like I showed you yesterday and part of the fun is getting to stamp together.

These first couple of cards I stamped during my SINKS team meeting. They both use Guy Greetings (138825/138828/137178). Like I’ve said before a great and versatile set to have on hand! Of course, for me these two images are great. Don’t you love cars? I know my guys do and the anchor just makes me smile.

These next cards I made during our Stamp Diva’s meeting. I love the fact we always learn techniques like this first card using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set (138813/1387816/137154).

Butterfly Basics Stamp Divas Project

And these next cards were taken directly from the catalog with some minor changes based on the supplies on hand. Can you spot them in the 2015 Annual Catalog?

And I thought this card using our Petite Pairs (128706/122497) and Fancy Foil Designer Vellum (133363) was fun to make. Sometimes I forget just how much fun vellum is.

Swaps & more

One of the things that I enjoy about being a demonstrator is stamping with other and sharing ideas. So today I thought I’d share with you some of the swaps that I received during May’s meetings. After all isn’t it fun to see what others are doing with the same stamp set you may have?

Check out this first card from my friend Anna using the Zoo Babies stamp set (130453/130456).

Zoo Babies Swap

And how about this one that Terry gave me using the Butterfly Basics (138813/138816/137154) and Sassy Salutations stamp sets (132070/126707).

Butterfly Basics Swap

And who doesn’t need thank you cards? Here is one from Kathy using the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set (136835). This set has such a great selection of image sizes to choose from.

And don’t you love these colors together? Crushed Curry and Blackberry Bliss along with the Guy Greetings Stamp set (138825/138828/137178). I’m sure you know I love this set – since it has such great images and wonderful sentiments!

Guy Greetings Swap

And while these two cards use some items that are no longer available they were such great cards I thought I’d share them with you anyhow.

This first one uses the Flower Shop stamp set (130939/130942) and is simply elegant done in a shades of brown.

And do you see the NEW embossing folder, Boho Chic (138286). What a great texture it adds to this card, right?

And the fun begins…

Guy Greetings

Stampin’ Up! is holding their Leadership Conference later this week and I’m putting my last minute touches on the projects so I thought I would share one of them today.

This card is made using the Guy Greetings set from the Occasions Catalog. I love this stamp set and it’s images, it has such a great selection of greetings for the guys in our lives and it also lends itself well to cards with a lot of texture. It also is available in ALL three types of stamps – have you noticed that in the Occasions Catalog? Stampin’ Up! has heard us and has responded to us by offering this stamp set in wood, clear mount, and photopolymer!!! Now you can have your cake and eat it too!

Anyhow, so here is what I came up with.

Guy Greetings Leadership Shoebox Swap 2015

What do you  think? I’m hoping it is a hit during my Shoebox Swap on Wednesday afternoon with my fellow demonstrators.

Oh, What fun it is to swap!!

Speaking of swaps I’ve held my first organized swap by mail with my fellow demonstrators. What fun it was to go to the mail box each day and get another package of cards. All total there were 45 different cards using stamp sets from the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure. I can’t wait to share some of them with you when I return from Leadership.

After several hours of sorting and packaging here is everything ready to go back to those who participated. I know it will feel like Christmas to them when they see their package in their mail box later this week (weather willing.)

Organized swap packages

I’ll begin sharing these with you next Monday 🙂

Saying goodbye to the old & hello to the new!

This week Stampin’ Up! will be transitioning catalogs – As we say goodbye to the 2014 Holiday Catalog and hello to the 2015 Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs I wanted to remind you of a few important dates.

Monday, January 5th – The Catalog transition and other special promotions  are ending on January 5th – so you don’t miss out on any of the goodies.

  • 2014 Holiday Catalog: ends Monday, January 5th at 11:50 p.m. (MT)
  • Year End Closeouts: ends Monday, January 5th at 11:50 p.m. (MT)
  • Weekly Deals: ends Monday, January 5th at 11:50 p.m. (MT)

Tuesday, January 6th is the kick off for two new fun catalogs –

  • 2015 Occasions Catalog: starts Tuesday, January 6th
  • Sale-a-bration Catalog: starts Tuesday, January 6th

If you are a customer of mine who has made a recent purchase you should have already received one from me in your mailbox by now.

You may think you haven’t received the 2015 Occasions Catalog  – It’s a bit confusing since the Occasions Catalog has a special  cover that matches our smaller Sale-a-bration brochure. But the Catalog is larger (8×10) and while the outer cover is yellow, it’s just is a reminder about the Sale-a-bration kick off. Open it and you’ll see the Occasions Catalog’s amazing cover with our beautiful project kit on the front cover. (You can find this Build-a-Bouquet Project kit inside on page 29.)

Inside you’ll see that there are some items from the Holiday Catalog that will be available however most items will no longer be available.

Such as ALL the Designer Series Paper! Along with some items you won’t want to miss out on and are must haves from the 2014 Holiday Catalog. I’ll be sharing  some of my favorite sets that are going away today.

2014 Holiday Catalog image

They are  thank you cards that I made recently –

First the wonderful Seasonally Scattered (135020/135023). I chose to use Garden Green and Calypso Coral for this card along with my Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (133787).

Seasonally Scattered

Don’t you love our Seam Binding? It ties beautifully. Add few Basic Pearls and it’s finished!

These next two are note cards (133766/131527) that I made using the Ornamental Pine stamp set (135104/135107) and the Lots of Thanks set (129687/129690) .

Ornamental Pine and Lots of Thanks (2) Ornamental Pine and Lots of Thanks (1)

And these last two thank you cards use the Letterpress Winter Photopolymer stamp set (135143). This first one is done in Lost Lagoon and Pool Party with a few Rhinestones added.

Letterpress Winter (3)

And this one uses the  soon to be gone Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper (135819).

2015 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek – Guy Greetings

And speaking of the 2015 Occasions Catalog – Here is a sneak peek of one of the fun stamp sets, Guy Greetings, that is included for the spring!

Guy Greetings

I made this card for a demonstrator meeting swap recently. Not only does it use the Guy Greetings stamp set (138825/138828/137178) found in the new 2015 Occasions Catalog, but it also uses an old favorite that is leaving – the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper (135820) along with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (130514/130517).

What do you think? I’m loving this little set for all the guys in my life!
