Above the Clouds Pop Up Box Card

Today’s project is a sneak peak of one of my favorite bundles from the 2019 Annual Catalog that will go live next week on June 4th. This bundle is perfect for this time of year as we are in the middle of our 46th Annual Helen Hot Air Balloon Race here in North Georgia. Watching all those colorful balloons floating majestically across the North Georgia mountains is a sight to see.

The Above the Clouds Bundle includes a Photopolymer stamp set and coordinating punch – making it a great bundle for all kinds of crafters. I’ve teamed this set up with one of our retiring Designer Series Papers , Best Route (146897) which is part of the Last Chance List. This paper has a travel theme and contains wonderful areal images of of roads which I thought was great for the hot air balloon theme.

Fable Friends

It was almost 70 here in the North Georgia mountains and it was a wonderful breath of spring. Don’t you love that first sunny day, where you can shed your coat and bask in the rays? For me it’s all the shades of green now that I live in North Georgia. I’m surrounded by fields and love all the different shades of green. I’m lucky, yesterday I got to watch the calves frolicking in the new grass next to the house. Ah, spring….

So today’s card is perfect for that spring feeling – Fable Friends can be found in the Occasions Catalog on page 30 and it’s filled with images perfect for spring!

How can you not love these little faces – ducks in particular hold a special place in my heart since as a child my dad bought me 4 baby mallards ducks at the 7 Mile Fair that I raised as pets.

Anyhow…. want to see the card?

I love this guys little sailor top so I knew exactly what I wanted to do with him – Poppy Parade and Blueberry Bushel make this sweet little squirrel pop. I’ve whipped up a tutorial for you so you can make some too. Why not check it out?

Enjoy! And then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a fun 3d project with you that is perfect for your spring needs!

A Quick Note about supplies:

The Sale-a-bration products and Occasions Catalogs have been hugely popular and as you know our catalogs do state on the back that products are while supplies last. So if you don’t see something in the Online Store it is sold out, or has been removed until supplies are replenished (like with the Butterfly Duet and Cake Builder Punches that will be in our 2019 Annual Catalog).

Make sure you order the products on your Must Have Shopping List now to prevent disappointment and of course if you have questions please let me know. Keep in mind Stamps are typically available until after the retirement list posts since we produce these.

Here is what Stampin’ Up! told us yesterday:

Due to complications with our die supplier, we’ve run out of the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies (item 148553) in North America and they will not be available in the future

Here is a current list of Dies that are in low supply at this time and will sell out soon If we sell out of these dies, they will no longer be available to order:

  • Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies (item 148529)
  • Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies (item 148549)
  • Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies (item 148548)

And of course the Sale-a-bration Coordinations Dies have been extremely popular – the Call Me Cupcake and Hop Around Framelits Dies have already sold out.

As always please let me know if you have any questions.

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Fable Friends (148670)

Inks: Memento : Blueberry Bushel Classic Ink (147138/147176), Tuxedo black (132708/133456), Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack (144601), Poppy Parade (147275), Night of Navy (144039), Granny Apple Green (146877), Daffodil Delight (144585) and Pumpkin Pie Dark Stampin’ Blends (144577), Petal Pink Light Stampin’ Blends (146866) and the Color Lifter (144608)

Varied Vases

With the spike in temperature last week I was thinking spring – so here is a bright cheerful card made with the Varied Vases Bundle from the Annual Catalog.

Today’s post is going to be quick since I’m expecting my son to be cracking the whip and needing me for our home improvement project again. He’s got a ton of energy and kept me working until after 11 last night. Oh, for the days when I used to have that much energy. LOL! (I’ll try and share some pictures with you next week, so you can see what I’ve been up to.)

I’m loving this Bundle of products and the fact I can use this punch with the Vibrant Vases stamp set (148656) offered in the Occasions Catalog too! More options, means more value, yippie!

I like the Blueberry Bushel and Calypso Coral combination that I used on this card, it’s bold and cheerful and perfect to chase away the winter time blues.

I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial for you too. Just a PDF this time, but I do have a tip for how to stamp easily with this punch that I’ve listed on the tutorial for you. And of course this set is great to use with your Stamparatus since it is a two step and allows you to stamp the flowers easily and at one time too. Got to love that, right?

Vibrant Vases

Today’s card is bright and cheerful – perfect as we just had some beautiful weather here in North Georgia and the early daffodils are starting to peak their heads out of the ground. However, today we’re back a normal winter day.

Today’s card is my February Thank You card that I created to send out to all of my stamping friends who place an order with me.

The two step stamp set, Vibrant Vases is easy to use and because of the bold images you won’t have a problem lining things up when stamping. It’s also perfect for the Stamparatus if you prefer to go that way.

And did you know that this stamp set coordinates with the Vase Builder Punch (147040) found in the Annual Catalog? That makes it a great way to make this punch even more versatile.
