Stampin’ In The Meadows Online Host Club Starting in July 2020

Hello! I still have openings in my Online Host Club that begins in July and runs through December!!

Do you have a long wish list but don’t want to spend a lot of money all at once?  An Online Host Club might just be the perfect solution for you.  This is the perfect way to build up your Stampin’ Up supplies a little at a time and receive host benefits too.

Here’s how it works:

You sign up for a 6-month term and commit to:

  • Placing a $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Placing your order by the 20th of each month
  • Using the Host Code for each month that I provide to you in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

Once 6 members have joined, a random draw will determine your host month and you are guaranteed:

  • a $150.00 Workshop order during your host month
  • $15.00 minimum of Host Dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host month
  • You earn one Wildflower Reward point for every $25 that you order on your Online Host Club Orders.  So your $25.00 order earns one Wildflower Reward every month, a $50 order earns 2 reward points, a $75 order earns you 3 reward points, etc.  You’ll earn at least 6 reward points during your membership, building up your Wildflower Rewards towards FREE Items
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your Host Month
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of the 6 months, any current set (excluding host sets)!

At the end of the 6 months, you will get first right at signing up for the next 6 month term.

During your host month you are also welcome to gather extra orders to increase your host rewards (just give your friends the host code for their orders), it’s that easy!  And if you already have 5 other friends that want to do this, you can start your own Exclusive Club!

Questions? Call me at 484-356-5031 or email me at apsudano@stampininthemeadows.com

Sign up ends on Friday June 26, 2020.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You with Wreath Builder Dies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! It’s been such a hectic and fun week with the new catalog opening and organizing my new products. But I just love the new In Colors and there are so many fantastic new bundles.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the card sketch we are using:

I started with a strip of the pretty Playing with Patterns 6×6 designer series paper and adhered it to a Night of Navy mat. I embossed a panel of the new In Color Just Jade card stock with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Just Jade card base. I adhered the matted Playing with Patterns DSP to the center of the card front. The DSP has Coastal Cabana stripes, but it really goes well with the Just Jade – I was surprised!

I cut the leaf wreath from the Stampin’ Up! Wreath Builder Die set from Just Jade and Vellum card stocks. I used a die from the Layering Circles Dies to cut a circle from Whisper White card stock and stamped the smile sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set in Night of Navy ink in the center of the circle. I layered the Just Jade wreath on the Vellum wreath and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the circle to the back of the the wreaths with liquid glue on the inside leaves and then I adhered the layered wreath to the card front.

Next came the fun part – I cut sets of flowers using the flower dies from the Stampin’ Up! Wreath Builder dies from Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Magenta Madness card stock. I also cut the bow from Night of Navy card stock. I adhered a large rhinestone gem to the center of the bow and adhered the bow to the bottom of the wreath with a glue dot. I adhered rhinestone gems to the center of each flower using the medium gems for the large flower and small gems to the small flower. I arranged the flowers around the wreath, adhering them with glue dots.

The inside of the card is is plain, I just added a strip of the Playing with Patterns DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. This leaves plenty of room for writing a cheerful note to brighten a friend’s day.

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Congrats Card

Good Morning! Today I have a congratulations card made with the sweet sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates cling stamp set and the pretty Artistry Blooms designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

This sheet of Artistry Blooms DSP is just awesome with the Gorgeous Grape and Magenta Madness and knew that I needed to use it for a graduation card for a young niece. So I adhered a panel onto a Magenta Madness mat and popped it on the front of a Gorgeous Grape card base with dimensionals. The Stampin’ Up! Many Mates congrats sentiment is perfect for this occasion because it is feminine but also light hearted, plus the set has many inside the card sentiments. So I stamped the sentiment on a panel of Whisper White and I found the die cut from the Perfect Parcels Dies fit it perfectly!

I cut a vellum panel with a scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies because I just love to use vellum on cards. And then I found these sweet flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies. They are the perfect size and the embossing adds the perfect bit of texture to make a set of Magenta Madness flowers for the card. I used the Sprig Punch to cut out some Granny Apple Green accents too.

I arranged the elements of the card and started by adhering the Granny Apple Green sprigs to the vellum. Then I knew where I could add the adhesive to the back of the vellum without it showing, so I added multipurpose liquid glue to those spots and adhered the vellum to the card front. Then I added the label with dimensionals and two flowers with dimensional and the last flower with liquid glue. I finished the flower centers with Crushed Curry Resin Dots.

I stamped one of the inside sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates stamp set with Gorgeous Grape ink on a Whisper White panel. I adhered another die cut flower next to the sentiment and a strip of the pretty Artistry Blooms DSP to the bottom. I matted the panel with Magenta Madness and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Artistry Blooms designer series paper is full of bright, artistic and fun designs! And the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates stamp set is the perfect compliment with its variety of sentiments. Check them out in my Online Store, along with all the other wonderful new products in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog

Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom Birthday Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the June Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is Birthday and as our first monthly Blog Hop after the release of the new catalog, I’m really excited to see all Birthday theme projects with the new products.

For today’s Blog Hop, I made a floral Birthday Card with the pretty new Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom stamp bundle.

I cut the large outline die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies from Misty Moonlight card stock. I cut the thicker large die from Balmy Blue card stock. I cut each of the flower centers from the thicker die with small squares of So Saffron card stock and trimmed the spokes so that I just had the center. I adhered the So Saffron center to each balmy blue flower with liquid glue so that the flowers would look like forget-me-nots. Then I adhered the Misty Moonlight outline die cut on top with small dots of multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom photopolymer stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on Balmy Blue card stock. I fussy cut the flowers with my paper snips and adhered the flowers to the back of the large layered die cuts. This way I had a darker flower petal behind the balmy blue. I stamped the Happy Birthday Sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom in Versamark Ink on a strip of Misty Moonlight card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I trimmed the ends to make a fishtail banner.

I embossed a Whisper White panel with the new Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the layered flowers to the embossed card front with dimensionals. I adhered the embossed sentiment to the flowers with multipurpose liquid glue. I colored a length of crinkle ribbon with the Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blend and tied it around the top of the card and made a bow with long flowing tails. I finished the card front with Misty Moonlight enamel dots.

I die cut one of the small flowers with Misty Moonlight, Balmy Blue and So Saffron card stock like the flowers on the card front and adhered the pieces together with small dots of multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the flower to the upper right corner of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

The Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom is a wonderful set with the beautiful layered die cut flowers and makes very special Birthday Cards.

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Friendship Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a friendship card made with the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. The Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle is one of the new sets in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I’ve grown peonies in my garden for several years now and they’re one of my favorite flowers. Last week, they started to bloom, but we had some severe storms over the last few days, so they aren’t so pretty anymore ☹️. So I’ll wait for them to bloom next year to get some pictures. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I started by cutting a panel of Gray Granite card stock with the pretty scalloped border die from the Peony Dies. This die cuts the scalloped border and embosses a loopy trim at the same time – it’s so feminine and pretty. I stamped the sweet friend sentiment by covering the parts of the sentiment stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony cling stamp set with tape before inking it up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After inking, I removed the tape (be careful because it can be very messy) and stamped the bottom of the Gray Granite panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a Peony Garden designer series paper panel and then to a Petal Pink mat with multipurpose liquid glue.

I die cut the leaves and flower parts with the dies from the Peony Dies from Whisper White card stock. I sponged the leaves with Mossy Meadow ink and then the adhered the leaves together. I colored the stamen with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and I used Petal Pink ink to sponge the flower sections. I made the ink most intense in the back of the flower and in the front section where you can see the inside of the petals.

I assembled the flower with multipurpose liquid glue on the lower edge of each petal. First I adhered the Daffodil Delight stamen to the smallest flower section and then applied the glue to the bottom and carefully slipped it into the next larger flower section, lining up the bottom edge. I repeated this until the flower was assembled. It sounds complicated, but it’s fairly easy because the bottom edges have curves that are pretty simple to line up. I adhered the leaves to the Gray Granite strip with multipurpose liquid glue and adhered the flower with dimensionals on the top and multipurpose liquid glue on the bottom. I added three of the gorgeous Elegant Faceted Gems and a Gray Granite shimmer ribbon bow. I adhered the decorated panel to the front of a Petal Pink card base.

I stamped the medium peony from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony to the bottom of a Whisper White panel after stamping off and adhered a strip of the Peony Garden designer series paper to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

The gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle is so fantastic! The stamps are gorgeous and each image has a coordinating die so there is no need to fussy cut. There is a variety of sentiments that are really sweet and pretty and even a background stamp for adding texture. And finally the 3D die cut peony flower is absolutely amazing! It is definitely a set that you will want to add to your card making tool chest! And if you have been thinking about joining Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator, consider getting this as your FREE bundle this month!

Stampin’ In The Meadows Online Host Club Starting in July 2020

Hello! I am excited to announce that my Online Host Club will begin a new term next month and we have openings!!

Do you have a long wish list but don’t want to spend a lot of money all at once?  An Online Host Club might just be the perfect solution for you.  This is the perfect way to build up your Stampin’ Up supplies a little at a time and receive host benefits too.

Here’s how it works:

You sign up for a 6-month term and commit to:

  • Placing a $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Placing your order by the 20th of each month
  • Using the Host Code for each month that I provide to you in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

Once 6 members have joined, a random draw will determine your host month and you are guaranteed:

  • a $150.00 Workshop order during your host month
  • $15.00 minimum of Host Dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host month
  • You earn one Wildflower Reward point for every $25 that you order on your Online Host Club Orders.  So your $25.00 order earns one Wildflower Reward every month, a $50 order earns 2 reward points, a $75 order earns you 3 reward points, etc.  You’ll earn at least 6 reward points during your membership, building up your Wildflower Rewards towards FREE Items
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your Host Month
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of the 6 months, any current set (excluding host sets)!

At the end of the 6 months, you will get first right at signing up for the next 6 month term.

During your host month you are also welcome to gather extra orders to increase your host rewards (just give your friends the host code for their orders), it’s that easy!  And if you already have 5 other friends that want to do this, you can start your own Exclusive Club!

Stampin’ Up! Color Coach

Good Morning! Have you heard of the Stampin’ Up! Color Coach? Color Coach is a tool to help design cards by providing you a visual to compare different colors palettes. Here is the Color Coach for the new 2020-2022 In Colors. If you click on the picture it will open up a 2 page PDF with the Color Coach for both the 2020-2022 In Colors and the 2019-2021 In Colors that you can download.

Use the Color Coach to find the main color of your project and see suggested three color palettes that you can use or get inspired to combine it with a color that you didn’t think of before.

Another helpful tool, especially for digital stampers is the hex chart. This chart gives you the hex values of each of the Stampin’ Up! Colors that you can use when creating designs on your computer to use in your projects. This way you know that your digital products will coordinate with your card stock and ink colors.

You can click on the picture above to download and print a PDF version.

Are you excited about the new Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog? Here are some videos on some of the new product suites that Stampin’ Up! has published to help you get oriented. Let’s start with the Peony Garden Suite since I’ll be using it in my FaceTime Live tomorrow afternoon.

And here is a short on the Ornate Garden Suite which was released earlier. It’s still one of my favorites!

The World of Good Suite is fabulous for creating masculine projects.

The Whale of a Time Suite will be great for nautical theme projects.

The Artistry Blooms Suite will be great for unleashing your creativity to experiment!

And one of my favorites already is the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

If you haven’t received your catalog, drop me an email and I’ll send you one. It’s one of the best Stampin’ Up! Catalogs ever!

Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have a sweet birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Four Seasons Floral photopolymer stamp set. This sweet little stamp set is in the Stampin’ Up! Beginner’s Brochure and in the Beginner’s Brochure section of my Online Store. In addition to this new stamp set, I played with most of the new 2020-2022 In Colors – So much fun!!😊 You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Magenta Madness panel with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base. I cut a panel of the pretty Flowers for Every Season 6×6 designer series paper with the Rectangle Stitched Die and adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored the flower with the Magenta Madness, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends. I cut a Misty Moonlight panel with a scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered the flower to the die cut panel. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock. I punched the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I punched the ends of a strip of Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the label with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and liquid glue. I finished off the card with three Misty Moonlight enamel dots and a bow made with the pretty Misty Moonlight and silver baker’s twine.

I decorated the inside by adhering a strip of the Flowers for Every Season DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to a Magenta Madness mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral is a sweet little stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Beginner Brochure that is great for all levels of stampers. There is a nice little beginning stamper collection, The Four Season Floral Cards Collection, with everything you need to start to your card making hobby and the images and sentiments also coordinate with other items in the Flowers for Every Season suite.

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the first Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop with the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! My card uses the new Stampin’ Up! Many Mates bundle with the returning To A Wild Rose stamp set and Wild Roses Dies.

We have a wonderful retro color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using. And it includes one of the new 2020-2022 In Colors – Bumblebee!

So of course my card base is Bumblebee and I cut a panel of the Bumblebee paper from the Flowers For Every Season 6×6 designer series paper pack and adhered it to the front of the card base. Then I cut a panel of Early Espresso with the wonderful background die from the Many Medallions Dies and adhered it to the card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the sweet Thinking of You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped the rose from the To A Wild Rose photopolymer stamp set in Crushed Curry ink on So Saffron card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Wild Roses Dies. I stamped two of the leaves with Old Olive ink on Old Olive card stock and cut them out with the coordinating die.

I arranged the die cuts on the card front and adhered the leaves and label with multipurpose liquid glue. I popped the flower with dimensionals and decorated the center with Cinnamon Cider enamel dots. I made a bow with the Bumblebee 1/4″ twill ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot.

For the inside, I stamped two roses from the To A Wild Rose stamp set in So Saffron ink (after stamping off twice) in the corners of a Whisper White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Flowers For Every Season DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

It was so much fun to play with the new Stampin’ Up! Many Mates stamp set and Many Medallions Dies! New Catalog = New Toys! Yay!!
