Recipes for August Club Cards (the other two)

Thanks so much for your nice comments and emails yesterday, I really appreciate hearing from you, and YES, I will keep sharing the recipes. People wanted to know the Stampin’ Up! ingredients for the two other club cards I shared yesterday, so here you go! I think this card would be great for someone going off to college, moving, starting a new job, getting married, or even a birthday. What do you think? Remember, this is a card I cased from a talented stamper named Heidi…. from Pinterest, where I lose more hours per week than I’d like to admit… 😉







Everyone seemed to really love the Dear Heart stamp set- and as a tip, these stamps are small enough we didn’t need the foam pad like other bigger Photopolymer stamps.

Also- I am adding two additional photos to show you some ways my awesome club ladies changed up the cards (I always want my stamping friends to make the card work for them, I have alternate sentiments and always want them to go home loving their card!)









Look at Amye’s sweet scuba diver boy! How awesome with this nautical paper?? Love him!






And look how Barb stepped up her card- using the honeycomb texture folder really makes the background pop, don’t you think??


Well I have the rest of my club ladies here tomorrow night, I’ll be sure to report if we have any other alterations from my design, to inspire YOU!

Thank you so very much for stopping by today to check out the blog, and most importantly- thanks for your feedback about the “recipes”, I love the Stampin’ Buddy tool, and I’ll keep using it to provide you these photos and links to my website (did you know if you click the photo, it takes you to my online store, neat-o, huh?? )


Have a great day!

Good morning friends! Can you tell I’ve been burning the midnight oil?

Today you will see the 3 cards my friends will be making at my August Clubs (Saturday morning and Monday night once a month). What do you think?? I love to read your comments, they really make my day to hear from you! thanks and happy stamping!



I already shared the card “recipe” the other day (all the Stampin’ Up! products used to make a card) for the sunflower card. Do you like when I show you all the products? I can do it for the other two club cards, if you’re interested, please leave a comment and I will do so. thanks!




I adore the new Photopolymer set “Dear Heart” (the boy version of the “Sweetie Pie” set that sold out a few months ago- what do you think?



This card is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from Pinterest by a stamper named Heidi- thanks so much for the inspiration! I always let my stampers change the greetings, if they want, this card would be perfect for someone going off to college, or a birthday, get well, thinking of you, and many more occasions!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have an awesome day!

How cute? Thanks Jan and Ron! Do you recognize the little flower treat holder? My sister, niece and friend Amye made these as my 50th birthday party favors, love them!! And Jan, I love your interpretation of a new way to use the awesome stamp set “Work of Art”- demonstrators received this stamp set free when we attended the new catalog movie premiere party back in April, and boy am I loving all the awesome cards and projects you can make with this new set. The possibilities are endless!

Valentine’s Bash was a Blast!

I forgot to show you pictures from our fun Valentine’s Day Bash on Monday! (I’m sorry to admit, I’m getting more forgetful).

valentine1 valentine2 valentine3 valentine4

I had a full house here- for me that is 8 stampers in my craft room. But I forgot to take photos of the second table, they made the cards and treat holder first, and I didn’t get any action shots of them. Sorry Amy, Tatiana, Amy and Mary Beth! (Remind me next time, unless you’re camera shy).

We really had a blast making these banners! I’m sorry to say they are not a current item. I did stock up on some banner kits in December before they went away from the Holiday Catalog.
I probably should have ordered more, dare I hope they make it into the new catalog in June???

Stamping with Seniors… simple Stampin’ Up!

atrium cards

Hi there stamping friends! I hope you had a great weekend!

What do you think of these simple cards? I am doing an event at a local senior citizen residence next weekend, to see if seniors like to stamp! My BFF’s grandmother recently moved in there, and I saw their activities line up and thought, “hum, I bet they’d like Arts-and-Crafts”! So, I’m going to give it a whirl.

I’m planning to bring all kinds of rubber stamps, ink pads and our note cards/envelopes. I’m going to let them each make 2 cards this first time. I’ll find out what they like, and see if they would like to step it up next time… I just need to be careful of the level of fine motor involvment, or be sure to have helpers with me.

free shipping

Don’t forget free shipping ends tomorrow night! If you were thinking of getting something (I know you want those dress framelits, right??)- just think you are saving 10% if you order by midnight tomorrow. If you order by 6 pm and use Hostess code Z4AVCU7C in my online store, you will be entered to win a free Spring Array Bundle (punch and clear mount stamp set- a $28 value!) Go to http://LynnStreifert.Stampinup.net

Well, my dear sweet sister informed me I write too much… so I’m going to try to shorten these blog posts a bit. Let me know if you like reading my (lengthy) posts or not 🙂

Until tomorrow, happy stamping!
