Creative Inking Blog Hop- Birthday Bash!

creative hop

 

Hi there stamping friends! I hope you are having a great week! This month our group is featuring Birthday cards for our blog hop! I can’t wait to see what the others are featuring this month.

As many of you know, the past 11 days have been anything but normal while my father has been recovering from his accident, hip surgery, some undetected heart attack(s), and life on oxygen plus helping my mother who has had some chronic health issues herself, plus being short-handed and working long hours at my work has made life very stressful lately… but- there’s good news-my dad is recovering nicely and is more and more “himself” every day. He was just moved to Sunnyview Rehabilitation Center on Tuesday and we are hoping his recovery goes smoothly while he is there. He has a vigorous schedule of OT and PT, and we are so very blessed and thankful for the amazing medical care he has received. Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers, our family appreciates them so much!

Since I have not been home much, nor have I done much stamping lately, I was a little stumped at where to begin when I was preparing for this blog hop, so I thought of one of my favorite new stamp sets … called “Build a Birthday” found on page 11 of new 2015-16 Annual Catalog (item #138646). This set has been so versatile, and really fun and easy to use since it is one of our amazing photopolymer style stamps. That means they are clear- you can see right through them- which makes stamping a breeze! The coordinating products used in these featured cards include the new 2015-17 In-Colors, the Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape (item #138384) and Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack (item 3 138443). Also, the new 1″ Dotted Lace Trim ribbon is a real show-stopper, it makes every card look more elegant, and is so easy to tie!

Which card did you like the most? I’d love to hear from you- do you own this set yet? If not, it’s a must have- and easily a gender neutral stamp set- it’s nice to have this stamp set so you can make up a bunch of birthday cards to have on hand!

Whirlwind Stampers and Some Deals…

Hi there stamping friends! I wanted to share with you a couple of make  & take projects from the other night at our monthly get together at my up line’s house, our group is called whirl
wind stampers and boy did we have a lot of fun!

First up is this gorgeous card by our fearless leader Dania, she used a brayer to add color to the Typeset DSP. The set she used is called “The Wilderness Awaits”, #139365 page 86.

(We were cracking up- remember the trendy popular song from last year “what does the Fox say?” Too funny thanks Amye for finding that song!)

Next up was a card by one of our demonstrators named Laurie:


She use the new stamp set called “Wild About Flowers” found on page 74 of the new catalog item #138728 (this set has a lovely retirement greeting perfect as I have a couple of those coming up this month at work).

Our last make & take of the evening was the wow card by Karyn. Her cards are always intricate and full of lots of Sizzix parts look how amazing this card is:


Karyn use the set “From Land to Sea” item #139361 found on page 83 of the new catalog also the cute Sea Street stamp set that carried over.


This is a real showstopper with lots of fun elements on all sides! Thanks Dania, Laurie and Karyn for your awesome M&T projects this month! Come back tomorrow and see all our awesome swaps!!

Happy 4th of July Weekend! (and some birthday cards)

Hi there Stamping Friends! Hope you all are enjoying a long weekend, celebrating the 4th of July can be fun- I’m heading up to Cape Vincent for the weekend to spend time with my parents- I packed some of our Paper Pumpkin craft kits, the Cottage Greetings kit, and all my photos and our Project Life line of cards for photo albums/memory keeping. (I’m sad that I’ve finished three albums for other people and haven’t finished my own). So check back next week and I’ll be sharing what I accomplish!

I realized that I never shared my cards from my monthly Stamp-a-Stack class (it’s always the last Monday of the month). Here was our June line up of all birthday cards:

june bday2 june bday3 june bday4 june bday5 june bday6

 

*This last birthday card (the ice cream cone) was CASE-d (Copy And Share Everything) from Erica Cerwin’s blog. Love her work, she is so inspiring! Thanks Erica! This uses our new Ronald McDonald House stamp- $3 of the sale of this stamp set goes directly to RMH and it has a coordinating punch. Love them!

Retiring Past Paper Pumpkin Kits

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there. My dad is away this weekend, so we will be celebrating one night this week when he is home from camp. I decided to catch up on some work in the craft room, including blogging and sending some emails. I thought you would be interested to learn that Stampin’ Up! has announced that there will be some of our past kits that will be retiring on June 27th- so if you want them, get them before they’re gone!

 

http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=112102

Hurry and order before June 27th, after that they are “retired” and no longer available. As an added incentive, for any online orders between now and June 30th (including these Paper Pumpkin specials, OR anything you just want to order), I have a FREE gift for you- that I will pop in the mail (or local peeps I will give you) as my thanks! I am very close to reaching my sales goal for the month of June, and I need a little help to push me over, (about $500 away from a sweet spot too). So,  I will give you either a clear “D” size paper pumpkin block or one sheet of dimensions with each $25 order from my online store. You must use Hostess Code: XFNCQJF2
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful afternoon.

Creative Inkling Blog Hop- Favorite Retiring Stamp Set

creative hop

 

Hi There Stamping Friends,

Our blog hop theme this month is “Favorite Retiring Stamp Set”… well, I couldn’t pick just one to show you here today, in fact since I planned our stamp camp last Saturday around this very topic, I thought I would share all 5 of our cards. We called it “Last Chance Stamp Camp” and had a wonderful turnout of stamping friends!

Here are the cards that we made:

First up was a card I designed to use for my own Father’s Day card this year:

retired5

This card features the retiring stamp set “Walk in the Wild” and I paired it with the retiring modern label punch as well. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

 

Next card we featured was a card appropriate for a graduation or we had an alternative card for a simple congratulations:

retired9

 

 

retired7

The “Way to Go” stamp is in the set called Bravo, and it is not retiring (the Bravo set is carrying over to the next catalog). The class of 2015 is retiring, last chance to get it is June 2nd!

 

retired4

 

Sadly, Petal Potpourri is also retiring, June 2nd will be your last chance to get this gorgeous set! It has a coordinating punch called “Flower Medallion Punch” (the punch is returning in the new catalog because it coordinates with one of the flowers in the stamp set “Crazy for You” which is also carrying over.) The beautiful Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper has been one of my favorites, and I’m using it for my Stamp-and-Sip event on May 29th (I have only 2 spots left).

 

This card is the one I used to advertise the event, and I think everyone said it was one of their favorites:

 

retired6

 

This was a card I was inspired by Pinterest, but I couldn’t find the original creator… The set “By the Seashore” is retiring and I realized I had never used this set in a class at all. I also used Wetlands (the gulls) and Sassy Salutations (these two sets are continuing into the next catalog). No one complained about fussy cutting all the seashells out. fun, fun!

Last but not least, I also realized I had never featured in a class a stamp set that was part of a bundle called “Adventure Awaits” that was paired with the awesome mini stack of designer series paper called Adventure Bound. The stamps spoke to me, and I had to have them, and originally planned to use them for Father’s Day cards. This card was a case (Copy and Share Everything) by Mary Fish. I had two unopened packs of the Maritime designer series paper. ** Bonus- this DSP is on sale until Monday 5/25 in our “Weekly Deals”… get it for 25% off retail price! Awesome-sauce!!

 

 

 

 

retired3

So this was the full line up, I also had my downline make these cards at our team get together last week. I find it helps if they’ve made the cards, and then they can pick the card table they want to run at Stamp Camp…. and I’m so blessed that four of my downline were able to come and help run a table at the stamp camp, (shout out to Judy, Sharon, Audrey and Laurie)! Many thanks ladies!!

 

retired1

 

So if you’re interested in purchasing any of these retired items, they retire on June 2nd, but I wouldn’t wait to the last day… if I were you 😉

Also, don’t forget to mark your calendars for our next BOGO sale- Saturday June 6th in Burnt Hills, NY, hope you can make it!
