Dragonfly Dreams Sneak Peek

Dragonfly Dreams, Stampin Up, 207 Occasions Catalog, susanstamps.wordpress.com

One of my favorite things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is I get to see the new catalogs that are coming out before customers.  What is even better is I get to see them before some Demonstrators because I attended OnStage Local this year.  OnStage and OnStage Local are events that Stampin’ Up! holds for their Demonstrators.  There is on held in April and November every year.  In April you get the new Annual Catalog and in November you get a copy of the next Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs.

You can also win product at these events.  I won a new stamp set called Dragonfly Dreams.  It has dragonflies and bees along with some sentiments.  It also has a matching set of dies called Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  I did not win the matching Thinlits so I didn’t use them in this card, but I do have to say, it has this one die in it that is just adorable.  It is a die with multiple dragonflies all attached.  It is definitely on my list to purchase.

Speaking of purchasing, as a Demonstrator I also get to order products early.  The 2017 Occasions Catalog starts in January but I can order on December 1st!  I can’t wait!

If you are interested in joining me at one of these events then just click on the Join Now button to the right.  You get to pick $125 worth of products for just $99 (plus tax)  Shipping is free with your start up kit!  There is no obligation and you don’t have to buy another thing, but I know you will want to!

Today is your last chance to get these amazing stamp sets at 25%!!  Don’t miss out!

Falling Flowers

Falling Flowers, Flourish Thinlits, Stampin Up, susanstamps.wordpress.com

One of the great things about Stampin’ Up! is you can mix and match just about everything!  Although this card uses a stamp set that has matching Framelits, I decided to also use a different set of Thinlits.  Actually, this card is a mish mash (are they even words?) of a lot of different products.

The flowers are from the stamp set called Falling Flowers.  The matching Framelits are called May Flowers and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.   The sentiment is from a past Paper Pumpkin Kit.  That is something that people forget.  Even though you may have made all the items in the Paper Pumpkin kit, you will still have the stamp sets to use forever!  The Gold Foil leaves and border are from Flourish Thinlits.  Remember, there is no law that says you can only use sets that come together on a card.  You can mix it up every now and then!

A Stamp Off Thanks

Stamp Off Logo Clean

I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving and that you were filled with family, friends, good food and thankfulness.  Today’s Stamp Off Challenge is called “Let’s Be Grateful”.

november-25-2016

I decided not to use the tradition Fall or Thanksgiving colors and theme for my card.  Instead I went with pinks and purples.

Wild About Flowers, Thoughtful Banners, Stitched Shapes, Stampin Up, susanstamps.wordpress.com

Whenever I get stuck on making a card, I look for a sketch challenge to do.  I found one similar to this layout but I changed it a bit and made it simpler.

I used the new Stitched Shapes Framelits.  These Framelits are actually going to be in the 2017 Annual Catalog but Stampin’ Up! decided to release them early.  This made me so happy since I love the look of the stitching.  The best part is this set of Framelits have circles, ovals and squares!

The flowers are from the stamp set called Wild About Flowers and the sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners.  The Designer Series Paper is called Blooms & Bliss.

Someone asked me how I cut the triangles of paper so evenly.  It is super simple!  You just cut a square (this one is 3″ x 3″) and then make a cut from one corner to the opposite corner.  That way both sides are exactly the same size.

Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy have made for their Thank You cards.  I am sure we will be awed!

Hang Your Stocking

Hang Your Stocking, Christmas Stocking, Stampin Up, susanstamps.wordpress.com

I know it is not Thanksgiving yet, but if you make your own Christmas cards you need to start thinking about it.  The 2016 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog has a ton of great stamp sets, dies and accessories to make Christmas card creations easier.  This is just one example of the many sets you could use.

This card uses the stamp set called Hang Your Stockings.  This set has matching dies called Christmas Stocking Thinlits and you can save 30% by purchasing them before November 28th!  I love this set because the stockings are so cute.  A few years ago, Stampin’ Up had another stocking set that had a matching punch, but this set is so much better.  The stockings are bigger plus the dies make so many variations.  It has great sentiments and I love the little touch of holly.  One of the best parts of this set is the “Noel” die cut.  I think that is adorable!

Remember, Thanksgiving is in just a couple of days so think about getting your Christmas hat on!
