Introducing the NEW Stampin’ Up! 2017-2019 In Colors

Announcements/ Paper crafting/ Product Information

TADA…Introducing the NEW Stampin' Up! 2017-2019 In Colors! We are less than a week away from the launch of the new Stampin' Up! catalog…squeal!!

I hope you have received your catalog from me and have been making your wish list…mine is VERY long! 🙂 If you haven't gotten a catalog and do not currently have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I would love to send you a catalog. Just shoot me a quick email and we'll get that ball rolling!

Today I wanted to give you a little more info about the amazing In Color Collection that will be part of our color families for the next two years! Usually there are a couple of the colors that don't really float my boat but this time I think Stampin' Up! has hit it out of the park:

Berry Burst – a magenta-like color that is beside Rose Red and Melon Mambo on our color spectrum and also works well with Pink Pirouette and Powder Pink, another new IC.

Fresh Fig – while I am still in mourning over the loss of Blackberry Bliss, this new color goes a long way to take away my sadness…lol. Next to Perfect Plum and Rich Razzleberry.

Powder Pink – a very muted, light shade of pink; lines up with Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride.

Tranquil Tide – has a “teal-like” feel to me; sits by Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay.

Lemon Lime Twist – was my least favorite but since playing with it and seeing so many cute, fun samples I'm now a fan! This color will look different depending upon if you pair it with green or yellow.  It looks great as the “star” of the project…

…OR as the “supporting cast member” working in tandem with others.

I hope you're as excited as I am about these new 2017-2019 In Colors and all the new products making their debut on June1

Oh…one last reminder, the Eastern Palace Bundles (featured in above card), will only be available through May 31. Don't miss out on your chance to get these great new products, save money AND get free stuff in your bundles. While the products will be offered in the new catalog, these limited-time bundles will not.

Order now at my online store or email me directly to place your order.

Hope you enjoyed this little introduction to the NEW Stampin' Up! 2017-2019 In Colors!

Cake Crazy – Bold and Beautiful

Paper crafting/ Product Information/ Sale-A-Bration

I have several family birthdays coming up so this bold and beautiful card using the Cake Crazy stamp set is just perfect, don't you think?

One of the best things about Stampin' Up! is that everything coordinates! The Party Animal Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape work perfectly together on this cheery card. Did you know that you can actually pick these products (or ANY other for that matter) as part of your starter kit for only $99?!

That's right, you get to pick $125 worth of products for only $99 plus tax, NO shipping AND you can pick two extra stamps sets of any value…woo hoo! If this might appeal to you check it out here!

Instructions, including measurements, for this Cake Crazy card follow below. Just click on any picture to order now…only one more day to grab your free Sale-A-Bration items!


  • Stamp Set: Cake Crazy (142850)
  • Cardstock and Paper: Whisper White (100730) and Party Animal Designer Series Paper (142738)
  • Stampin’ Pad: Crushed Curry (131173), Emerald Envy (141396), Pacific Point (126951), and Tangerine Tango (126946)
  • Miscellaneous: Party Animal Designer Washi Tape (142743), Brights Enamel Shapes (141680), Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246), SNAIL Adhesive (104332), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430), and Paper Snips (103579)


  • Whisper White card base: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2” then folded plus a piece 3” x 5-1/4” and 2-1/4” x 4-1/8”
  • Polka-dot sheet from Party Animal Designer Series Paper 4” x 5-1/4”


  1. Adhere Designer Series Paper onto Whisper White card base with SNAIL.
  2. On the smallest Whisper White piece, starting from the bottom, stamp the first cake layer using 3 different stamps and 2 colors (Pacific Point and Crushed Curry). First use Pacific Point and stamp the image with the solid line so the line is about 1/8” from the bottom of the cardstock . Then ink the diamond image with the curvy line in Pacific Point (don’t stamp yet!) and stamp off once then align image over already stamped image and stamp. Ink the diamond image that has no border with Crushed Curry, align over already stamped images and stamp.
  3. Stamp “Fantastic” in Tangerine Tango carefully so it almost touches the bottom cake layer and is in the center.
  4. Stamp row of stars in Crushed Curry.
  5. Stamp next cake layer with top and bottom lines in Pacific Point. Stamp companion piece also in Pacific Point but stamp off once before stamping onto darker cake layer image.
  6. Ink top cake layer with Pacific Point and stamp off before stamping.
  7. Ink candles with Pacific Point and stamp.
  8. Ink candle flame image with Crushed Curry and stamp.
  9. Temporarily set that piece over the middle sized Whisper White piece so you know where to next stamp the top and bottom sentiments in Emerald Envy.
  10. Once the sentiments are stamped, line right and bottom sides with the Emerald Envy Washi Tape. Using Paper Snips trim Washi Tape. Adhere to card front with SNAIL. Then add two strips of the Crushed Curry stars Washi Tape so it overlaps a tiny bit over the Emerald Envy Washi Tape. Trim with snips.
  11. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere the cake piece to the middle Whisper White piece so it’s centered between the top and bottom sentiments.
  12. Sprinkle rhinestones and enamel shapes onto front of card.

Thanks for popping in today and I hope you'll have fun making a Cake Crazy card! Oh, if you missed yesterday's post, I showed you how to create a fun custom t-shirt card.

What’s a Pumpkin Patch? Or is it Paper Pumpkin?

Paper crafting/ Paper Pumpkin/ Product Information/ Videos

Hey stampers!  I have to share a Paper Pumpkin funny story with you. When you join Stampin' Up! you get a free Paper Pumpkin kit (keep reading if you're not sure what this is!) in your box of goodies. One of my new team members had no idea she was getting this in her starter kit. We work together so she sent me a message and asked me what does she do with her “pumpkin patch”? It took me a minute, but then I started cracking up. I messaged her back and said, you mean Paper Pumpkin, right? She laughed and said yes. I showed her what was inside the box and she and her mom had a great time stamping and assembling everything.

I learned a good lesson from this: I need to do a better job of explaining the kit “extras” to my new team members; the Paper Pumpkin kit makes the value of the starter kit even better!

As I was thinking about my new team member, it occurred to me that Paper Pumpkin would be a great topic for a post this week…and not just because of the free kit when you join Stampin' Up! So here we go.

What IS Paper Pumpkin? It is a fully designed project kit that arrives at your door each month with stamps, ink, and paper—everything cut and ready to go, so you can skip to the fun. You'll get fun projects like cards, gift packaging, home décor, and more for just $19.95 a month (shipping included). The packaging itself is fun, too. Monthly kits arrive in an orange box and sometimes a special box is designed for a particular kit. Each month is a surprise…and who doesn't like surprises! Here's a video of the January project:

Right now, during Sale-A-Bration, you can get a three month prepaid subscription AND a free Sale-A-Bration item…it's a great time to sign up! I have my own Paper Pumpkin subscription and I get just as excited as my customers when that orange box arrives!

I have several customers who sign up for a 12 month prepaid subscription during Sale-A-Bration because they get FOUR free Sale-A-Bration freebies, a discount on the subscription, and they are guaranteed an entire year of Paper Pumpkin fun…with no interruption!

Whether you are new to stamping, or have been crafting for years Paper Pumpkin is sure to please. You can also gift a subscription to the crafters in your life…these make a wonderful birthday gift!

I invite you to check out all the details here, and please do email me if you have any questions at all!
