Dies & More

Dies, Dies & More Dies. Oh my – And they are on Sale through the 18th! Whoo hoo! During Our Seasonal Sale you can get any of the Annual Catalog Dies on Sale for 20% off and there are some great die sets to choose from.

So today I thought I’d share some of my favorite versatile Die sets from the Annual Catalog. While these dies are great with the coordinating stamp set they are also great all by them selves with the set of your choice. I’ll start with a few of our free standing die sets, the first of which is the Tailored Made Tags (155563).

This die set is a great basic to use with all kind of projects – check out this fun card using the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (155464) and the Artistically Inked stamp set (154542)

Another of my favorites is the Tasteful Labels Dies (152886). This set of dies has some great basic shapes that can be used in tons of ways! Check out this next card using this set of dies.

This card uses the Nature’s Beauty stamp set (150528) stamped on the label and the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (155841) to highlight this wonderful sketched deer image.

And speaking of dies I reach for over and over again, how about the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (151690) that were used on this next card.

While this next card uses the beautiful pansy print from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (155807).

The big bold sentiment is perfect for this card and comes from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set (155034) found on page 38 of the Annual Catalog. And another wonderful die set that has great basic shapes is the Scalloped Contour Dies (155560) this was one of my first choices from the Annual Catalog this year since the layering scallop rectangles are sooo versatile and work so well with lots of other sets.

While the Color & Contour stamp set that coordinates with these dies is great it works wonderfully with all kinds of stamp sets. Check out these next 2 cards.

This first card uses the Sweet as a Peace stamp set (155050) and for a totally different look that uses the same die shape, check out this card using the Path to Greatness stamp set (155454) and the Stacked Stone Background stamp (152556).

And if you love labels with a flair – you’ll want to be sure to check out the Ornate Layers (152726) die set and Ornate Frames Dies (150664) that were used to create these next 2 cards.

Team them up with a great stamp set like the Forever Fern (152559) and Very Versailles (149275) and you’ll have a great look.

And of course we also have some wonderful that are great on their own since they are silhouettes. Like this wonderful nature scene? The Inspiring Canopy Dies (155963) create a wonderful silhouette look for any project.

Or the Many Layered Blossoms Dies (153582) that were used for this next card.

Whew, as you can see we have so many great dies to choose from you’ll want to be sure to check them out while the sale is going on, but you’ll want to hurry since the Seasonal Sale ends on Thursday, November 18th at 11:50 pm (MT). You can stop by my Online Store to check them all out today! Simply Click HERE.

Team Fun, Artic Bears & More

I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely fall weather. We had a warmer than normal, but beautiful sunny week for fall break. How about you? Since I didn’t share with you last week, I thought I would share some of the projects from my October Team Meeting. During our monthly team meeting we meet and stamp together along with swapping a project too. I’ll start with this card made with the Artic Bears stamp set (156428) from the Mini Catalog on page 39.

This card is a CASE (copy and share everything) from the catalog, CASEing is a great way to create when you need something quickly or are just getting started. And this next project is a fun 3D made with the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (155464) and Artistically Inked stamp set (154542).

The sentiment has been heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder (155555) and the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack (155465) adds some texture and interest. Do you see the little 2021-2023 In Color Jewels (155571)? These jewels are so much fun and add a bit of shimmer and shin to any project. And how about this next card using the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle (156478) and Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (156494)?

Isn’t it just great for sending during the fall holidays? And how about a fun Triangle Front Flap card using the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper (155718).

Some texture has been added not only with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317), but also with the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (151326) and Opal Rounds (154289).

We have tons of fun together and I love to see what everyone is crafting at home. How about you? Do you enjoy sharing and stamping with others?

Team Time Fun with the Mini & more

Yesterday was our monthly team meeting – we gathered, shared, and stamped together. So today I thought I’d share some of the wonderful projects that everyone has made. I’ll start with the New products from the Mini.

This first card uses the fun little Nuts about Squirrels stamp set (156475). These little guys are adorable.

The pop of color has been added with our Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (155841). If you haven’t check out this pack of paper, you’ll want to – the colors and patterns are great for fall projects.

This stamp set is so adorable in fact I’ll be offering a card class soon using this set! Watch for more information coming soon. You can sign up my Newsletter email list so you’ll get the information right to your inbox.

And this next card was created with the Joyful Life (156529) found on page 63 of the Mini along with the Layering Circle Dies (151770).

The fun pattern paper is from our Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper (156313) pack and is perfect for this project.

Love movement cards? Then you’ll enjoy this next card that uses the Give it a Whirl Dies (154336) along with the Great Tidings Bundle (156382) and is a definite wow card.

The die allows you to show more than just the one sentiment – an who doesn’t love movement cards?

The next few cards show off some of our wonderful nature inspired sets. This first card is monochromatic and is done in Pumpkin Pie. Quick and easy it uses our Daisy Garden Background stamp (155079) that has been teamed up with the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set (152559).

And how about this tent card that has been made using the Artistically Inked Bundle (155456)?

The Suite (155459) has wonderful gold foiling options too.

Soft and sweet this next card uses our Dandelion 3D Embossing folder (152953) and White Craft Ink to create this get well card.

It’s summer which always makes me think of the beach, so how about a card made with the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set (158203) for our next card?

Texture has been created for the backdrop using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (154309) and our Pearlescent Specialty Paper (154291). It’s simply elegant with all of it’s shimmer.

And last but not least an adorable little 3d box using the Party Puffins stamp set (155054) done in Polished Pink.

How can this little image not make you smile?

Whew – lots of great projects. I’m so blessed with my team, we love to gather together and always have a lot of fun when we do.

Maui Swaps & More

Today I wanted to share some more of the fantastic swaps that I got on the Incentive trip. This swap was an optional part of the trip and we had a choice of cards or 3d. Today’s post again is all about the cards.

And there were lots who participated, the boards were so full that not everyone’s made it on to the board, mine included. But I’ve already shared my card with you on the 18th HERE along with the video and tutorial in case you wanted to see it.

On to the swaps… This first one is bright and cheerful and perfect for the event! Magenta Madness and the In the Tropics Dies (151495). Yep, no stamping just dies were used to create this card and the bright cheerful colors make it fun.

And check out this next card which uses strips of the 2021 In Colors.

Clever, right? the strips adhered to a Basic Black card stock piece and were then die cut using the Hippo & Friends Dies (153585). The sentiment is from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set (155385) and those fun little speckles from the Clear & Contour stamp set (154994).

Another bright and cheerful card using the exclusive Host Designer Series Paper, Pattern Party (Host 155426). It works perfectly with this bold stamp set, Biggest Wish (155052).

Our White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (151326) is perfect for this project since you can add color to the ribbon so easily! And inside is just as bright and fun, check it out.

The very popular Artistically Inked Suite is highlighted on this next card.

With all the gold foiling the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (155464) is sure to impress.

This next card uses the fun In Symmetry stamp set (155140), Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper (155605) and new Baker’s Twine Essential Pack (155475).

I love the way our Champagne Rhinestones (151193) pick up the colors on the card. And it’s a fun fold too.

My last swap that I wanted to share with you today is a Slim Line Card done in our 2021 In Colors.

They look so great together! The card was quick and easy since it uses the New Flowers & Leaves Punch (155373), Heart Punch Pack (151292) and the Banners Pick a Punch (153608).

Got a favorite swap that I shared with you today? Why not leave me a comment and let me know.

More Incentive Trip Highlights

I thought I’d share a few more pictures with you from the Incentive Trip. This first one is of the Maui Gold Pineapple Tour, our guide Ken was a lot of fun. I can’t tell you how sad I am that we’ve cut into our last Maui Gold pineapple. I’m trying to figure out how I can hide it from the family without feeling guilty! Ah, well I guess I’ll be sharing it is too good not to share.

These next few photos are of the Stampin’ Up! excursion – we chose snorkeling and were so glad we did. We had a lot of fun being on a catamaran for the first time and watching the sails go up. While I just love being on the water, Larry can struggle with it and experienced a bit of motion sickness.

While our cameras don’t do justice to the fish the snorkeling was fantastic and there was a lot of variety too.

We spent a lovely afternoon around the resort. Here are some more pictures of the resort – these views never get old. Early morning I think was my favorite with the pinks from the sun rise.

To end the day we enjoyed dinner with Sherrie and her husband Jeff at the Maui Brewery Co. It was nice catching up and that we got to meet each others spouses after knowing each other for years. (I always enjoy doing Sherrie’s Shoebox Swaps at our live events.)

I had the Coconut Shrimp Fried Rice Sherrie said the other demonstrators were raving about. It was soooo yummy!

Whew, so much food and I loved the presentation. If you’d like to see more of the photos that I took from the Incentive Trip stop by my facebook page and check them out.

Then stop back by next week when I’ll be sharing more cards & the 3d swaps with you.
