Thinking of you

Sending a card just to let someone know that you are thinking of them means so much. 
To continue from the last post....
How many Thinking of You cards do you send each month? 
Again, I will pick a name from the comments on this post and give a prize. 
Watch future posts to see if you are the winner. 
The designer paper that I used for these cards is discontinued but there are new patterns available. 
They are made with the sponging technique. I have used the pretty new in colors for them. 
Which of the in colors do you like the best?

I think that I send more Thinking of You cards than any others. 

This one uses the washi tape. I will have several choices of designs there for you but they will all be discontinues ones. There are some great designs in the catalog but I am hoping that you will be happy to help me use up the ones that I already have here. 

The new Holiday Catalog will be coming in September! 
Demonstrators can see it already. We can start ordering on August 3. 
It might be a good time for you to join the Stamping' Up! family. 
You can get the products early and at a discount! 
Yes, the catalog has lots of goodies in it. 
Get some things free....have a workshop. 
I would love to help you get free things by demonstrating the new products at your party. 
If you place an order at the Stamp Along in August, there will be a new Holiday Catalog for you in with your order!

The hostess code for on line orders is
It is good until the Stamp Along. 
Thank you!

Birthday cards

There will be several birthday cards available for you. 
How many birthday cards do you send each month? 
Answer that question in the comments and you could win the birthday prize. 
I will pick one of the names from the comments on this post and have a prize for you. 
Watch future posts for the winner.
This first card has an opening on the front. The candle that you see is actually the inside of the card. 

This one is also just a little different as the easel stands up when the card is open. 

This one has the cute little bow on the top made from the bow builder punch. 

I hope you will be able to come to the Stamp Along and make a few of these. 

If you wish to place an online order, please use the hostess code
so it links with the Stamp Along order. 
Thank you!

Flourishing Phrases

This is another beautiful set of stamps and dies!
This card will be available at the Stamp Along. 

These four cards using this set will be available at a class on August 24 at 12:30 or 6:00PM at Schroeder's in Two Rivers. 
Please notice that I will be offering an evening class. 
This set can be found on page 49 in the catalog. It is filled with so many nice sayings. It is also a bundle so you can save 10% by purchasing both the stamps and dies at the same time. The class will be free with the purchase of the bundle. Or $20 without a purchase. 

The hostess code for online orders this month is
Thank you!

Thoughtful Branches - limited time set

There is a new set that is available for a limited time! 
Thoughtful Branches is a fun set to work with and has a lot of versatility.
These are three that I have done for you to try at the Stamp Along on August 8th.

This is the same tree without the leaves! 
I have paired it with the swirly dies to make the snowbanks. 
This one could be the start, or continuation, of your Christmas cards. 

This one uses one of the Thoughtful Branches stamps to make the tree on the inside. 
Those of you that placed an order at the last Stamp Along may recognize the decorative window
on this card as the product sample that you received with that order. 

Those of you that have placed a $50 order this month (July) have received an email from SU! with a code for $5 off of your order in August. Don't forget to bring that code with you to the Stamp Along because you will also get free shipping if you use your code after participating in the Stamp Along. 

If you are placing an order online before the Stamp Along, please use the hostess code
to link your order to the Stamp Along order. 
Thank you! 

Hope to see you at the Stamp Along to try out this new stamp set. 
It will only be available for the month of August. 
There is another card that I have done with this set that is even more special than these.
 I will be demoing that one at home parties during August. 
Let me know if you would like to host a party.

More Stamp Along cards

Need a baby card? This one is very cute...all babies need a mobile!
You will have lots of choices for the color of your ducks! I have LOTS of DSP scraps. 
The other card shown on the left is a shaker card. So easy to make with the new dimensional strips. 

This one also uses the flower builder punch. One of the cards I showed you in the last post also used that punch. The background was made with the new texture stamps. 

Hope to see you at the Stamp Along on Monday!

Stamp Along on Monday! Check out these cards.

There is a very nice promotion going on at SU! For each $50 order you place during July, you will receive a coupon for $5 off of your order in August.


Did you get everything you want from the new annual catalog yet? Since it came out only a month ago, you probably still have some items on your wish list, and we have some great news for you! For every $50 USD/$60 CAD you spend in between July 7 and July 31, you’ll get a $5 USD/$6 CAD Bonus Days coupon that you can use August 2-31. This is a great opportunity to shop from your wish list, whether you buy your favorite products now or later in August with your coupons!

• Promotion period: July 7–31, 2016
• Redemption period: August 2–31, 2016
• An email address is required to participate in this promotion; Bonus Days coupon codes can only be delivered via email.
• It is strongly recommended that participants both save emails containing their Bonus Days coupon codes AND write down the coupon codes in a safe place. Codes cannot be resent if the email is lost, and lost codes cannot be recovered.
• Bonus Days coupon codes can be redeemed for any product, excluding Starter Kits and Paper Pumpkin subscriptions. New prepaid Paper Pumpkin codes can be redeemed. 

There is also a wonderful new bundle that will be a limited edition. It will only be available during August. It won't be in any of the catalogs. It is called Thoughtful Branches.
You can see a preview on it on the Artisan Blog Hop.
Just google Thoughtful Branches.

Here are some of the cards that will be at the Stamp Along.
Some of the elements on these two cards are from my stash. Too good to throw out so I designed these cards around them. I hope you like them well enough to use up all of the elements.

The Monster card was well liked last time so it is back in a different color! The color of the month is Dapper Denim. The Emerald Envy one will be back also so you can choose either one. Or both! 
Let me know if you want another of the new in colors featured again next month on the Monster Card.

This one is much prettier in real life. This color didn't photo real well. It uses the flower builder punch. 

The hostess code for this time is 
Hope to see you on Monday!

Swirly Bird cards

The Swirly Birds set has become a favorite of mine. 
I wasn't sure about it when I first saw it in the catalog but there is just so much that can be done with it that I just keep wanting to use it. 
These are the four cards that I had entered into the contest this time. 
There were several entries this time and I was not the winner. 

These are the insides of the above cards. 
One is a pop up and one is a box in a card. 

If you would like to make these cards, I would be glad to do a private class with you and a few friends. Let me know and we can work out a time for your class. You could even earn your class or some product free.

Here are a few more cards done with the same set.

I wasn't very excited about this set but the more I work with it the better I like it. One of these MIGHT show up at the Stamp Along.
Would you like to make one of them? Let me know which one, if any, and I will see if I can get it there for you.
The hostess code is
until July 11th. Thank you for using it if you order on line.
