Stampin’ Up! On Stage 2022

Good Morning! I went to Stampin’ Up! On Stage over the weekend and had a great time! I met up with other Inkin’ Krew teammates, we made some cards, watched awesome demonstrations of new products from the upcoming January – April 2023 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration and we got a chance to get our new catalogs and some more new products.

First of all, here they are, the new Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. Ordering begins January 5, 2023 and the Mini Catalog will run through the end of April instead of June. But it is chock full of wonderful new products and it’s a great catalog! Also, there will only be one Sale-A-Bration in 2023, and it will be in January and February.

Meet Connie Troyer, Gloria Goller and Debbie Hilands! These ladies enjoyed all the crafting and presentations with me and are some of my Inkin’ Krew Teammates.

And of course we received some nice swag and Prize Patrol gifts to give us a taste of the pretty new things to come.

A pretty green (really) bag, pen and cute notebook. I was wearing my trading pins, so forgot to take a pic
Three gorgeous stamp sets, two from the new catalog and one from Sale-A-Bration. And the cutest little floral embellishments!

We got to make some cards too! We made these wonderful cards using the new Timeless Greetings Kit! This is a new kit that will be available tomorrow and is perfect for masculine cards. The all inclusive kit makes eight 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ cards, four in each of these designs. A n exclusive stamp set and Early Espresso Stampin’ Spot, instructions and all needed adhesives are included.

The projects made during the Stampin’ Up! presentations were posted on inspiration boards so we could get a close up look. Here are some of them. My phone photography skills are not the best, but there are so many pretty things to look forward to after the holidays!

And of course many of the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators in attendance made a bunch of cards to trade. These are called ‘swaps’ and some of the ladies posted them to the boards as well. There was tons of awesome card making inspiration!

All in all it was a fun day! It was great to meet up with my teammates and to see the new things coming our way. I plan to try to intersperse some sneak peeks of some of my new goodies as I finish up my holiday cards. But I need to keep focus on getting my Christmas cards done too!


The Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Sale is November 15 – November 18, 2022!

Create more by spending less during the Seasonal Sale! Between 15 and 18 November 2022, select products from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog will be on sale with the following discounts:

Stampin’ Up! Framed and Festive Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today is Stampin’ Up! On Stage and I am in Pittsburgh celebrating and having fun at a local event! but I pulled together a quick Christmas card using fun non-traditional colors and the Stampin’ Up! Framed And Festive cling stamp set. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the pretty paper from the Fitted Florets designer series paper to a Polished Pink mat and wrapped it with a length of Starry Sky metallic ribbon, making a bow on the side. I adhered the panel to the front of a Night of Navy card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Framed And Festive stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Polished Pink panel. I punched each corner with the curvy end of the Very Best Trio punch – remember to turn the panel upside down to keep the label symmetrical.

I adhered the label to the card front over the ribbon with dimensionals. I finished the card with three Balmy Blue sparkly gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf sprig from the Christmas Season photopolymer stamp set in Balmy Blue ink in the corners of a Basic White panel. I stamped the berry stem in Balmy Blue and the berries in Polished Pink. I love how the greenery resembles the DSP on the front of the card! I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Framed And Festive stamp set in Night of Navy ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Framed And Festive stamp set and the Fitting Florets DSP are part of the Fitting Florets promotion that is going on now. These are fun items designed to be used for both holiday crafting and items to coordinate with the early release of the Framed Florets bundle. I love the Polished Pink with the Night of Navy – these are pretty together and make for a fun non-traditional holiday cards.

Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle for an autumn wishes card, coloring the pretty floral fie cuts with Stampin’ Blends. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a pretty sketch challenge this week and sketch we are using:

I adhered a panel of the new Fitted Florets designer series paper to the front of a Soft Succulent card base. I used the largest stitched circle die from the Stylish Shapes dies to cut a panel of Rustic Harvest designer series paper and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I partially stamped the two ends of the large bouquet stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn photopolymer stamp set on two panels of Basic White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut them out with the coordinating die that makes 4 separate die cuts. I colored pieces with Stampin’ Blends, using Dark So Saffron for the flower centers, light Soft Suede for the flower leaves, light Soft Succulent for the rounded leaves, Rich Razzleberry for the flowers, light Real Red for the berries and light Daffodil Delight for the berry leaves.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Rich Razzleberry and cut it out with the long skinny banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies. I adhered the label to the card with glue dots. I adhered the die cut berries to the card with glue dots and the flowers with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a Soft Succulent bow and opal gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the single flower from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I cut it out with the coordinating die and colored it with Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends like the flowers on the card front. I trimmed the bottom of a Basic White panel with a strip of Fitted Florets DSP and adhered the flower on top with glue dots. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle is really pretty and with wonderful floral images that are fun to color. It also comes with great fall sentiments and fun dies.

Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the November Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays” and I am sharing a Christmas card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic bundle. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Lights Aglow specialty designer series paper to a Cherry Cobbler mat with liquid glue and adhered the panel to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base with Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic cling stamp set in Versamark ink on Cherry Cobbler card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut it out with the label die from the Potted Succulents dies.

I cut a Pear Pizzazz panel with the mistletoe sprig die from the Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic bundle. I cut several of the berry dies from white glimmer paper using the larger berry dies twice and smallest berry die once. I adhered the berries to the mistletoe sprig with liquid glue (I had several berries left over). There are spots on the sprig die cut where the berries go, and it’s pretty easy to tell.

I adhered the label to the card front with glue dots and adhered the layered mistletoe sprig on top with glue dots. I colored a length of linen thread with the dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend and made a bow. I adhered the bow to the sprig with a rolled up glue dot and finished the label with an iridescent pearl.

For the inside of the card, I stamped little mistletoe sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I colored the leaves and stem with the light Old Olive Stampin’ blend and the color lifter. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Lights Aglow specialty DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic bundle is a sweet and simple bundle with pretty images and dies and wonderful Christmas sentiments. The die cut mistletoe sprig came together easily and is really impressive with the white glimmer paper berries.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! One of the prettiest packs of designer series paper currently available is the Splendid Day specialty DSP with it’s colored foils and floral prints. I wanted to use it for a special card and so I paired it with the beautiful sentiments and label dies from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints bundle. And then I realized that the flower from the new Framed Florets bundle went perfect with the DSP, so I pulled it in as well. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I embossed a panel of Petal Pink card stock with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Petal Pink card base. I adhered panels of the beautiful Splendid Day specialty designer series paper to a Petal Pink panel with Stampin’ Seal. I cut a Basic White and Rose Gold foil panel with the leaf sprigs from the Splendid Stems dies (I cut two from the Rose Gold foil, saving one for the inside panel) and adhered them to the layered DSP panel with glue dots.

I folded a short length of Rose Gold and White striped ribbon and adhered it together with glue dots. I adhered it next to the sprigs on the layered DSP panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints cling stamp set in Versamark ink on a Basic White panel. I sprinkled it with copper embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut the sentiment out with the pretty label die. I adhered it to the panel with dimensionals over the ribbon and sprigs. I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped two flowers from the Framed Florets photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled them with copper embossing powder. I shook off the excess powder and heated the flowers with my heat tool until they were bright and shiny. I cut them out with the coordinating die and saved one for the inside of the card. I adhered the second one to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots and finished the card with three champagne rhinestone jewels.

For the inside of the card, I inked up the large fern from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints stamp set in Petal Pink ink and stamped it off. Then I stamped it in the corner of a Basic White panel. I adhered the Rose Gold foil die cut sprig over the fern with dots of liquid glue. I adhered a strip of Splendid Day specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the second flower on top with liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The gorgeous floral foil from the Splendid Day specialty designer series paper works well with the Rose Gold foil, copper embossing powder and rose gold striped ribbon. And the beautiful sentiments and label die from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints bundle are the perfect finish. Foils and embossing are easy ways to make an extra special card for any extra special occasion or loved one.

Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels Card

Good Morning! Have you seen all the squirrels out lately? They have been very busy in my neighborhood and I hope it doesn’t mean a harsh winter. But they inspired me to pull out the sweet Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels photopolymer stamp set to make a simple Fall Hello card. This is a fun two-step stamp set with the cutest squirrels that you can find in the current Annual Catalog. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the falling leaves Celebrate Everything designer series paper to a Shaded Spruce mat with liquid glue and wrapped a length of Gray Granite baker’s twine around it three times and made a bow. I adhered the wrapped panel to the front of a Crushed Curry card base with dimennsionals.

I stamped the outline of the sweet squirrel from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set inn Soft Suede ink on Basic White. I stamped the filler stamp with the body and tail in Gray Granite, lining up the paws and tail. It’s nice to be able to line things up with the photopolymer stamps. I stamped the acorn top in Soft Suede and bottom in Crumb Cake. I cut the squirrel out with the second largest square from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhered it to a Shaded Spruce mat with liquid glue. I adhered the squirrel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Granny Apple Green card stock. I cut it out with the smallest banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhered it to the card with glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf in Crushed Curry and the lines in the leaf in Memento Tuxedo Black – I love how well this leaf matches the leaves in the DSP! I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Celebrate Everything DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The squirrels in the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set are so cute and sweet and they’re perfect for fall cards. The two-step stamping technique is pretty easy to do with this stamp set and there are so many coordinating stamps that compliment the squirrels. Have fun with this set!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! We returned to PA last week, just in time for the Fall Foliage to peak, so I was inspired to use the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set to capture the beauty. I finally finished my card and used the pretty sentiments from the Very Best Occasion cling stamp set with it. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the oak leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set several times on a Very Vanilla panel. I used a technique where I inked the stamp in one color and used a sponge dauber to apply a second color to parts of the leaf before stamping the image on the card stock. I used Crumb Cake with Parakeet Party, Calypso Coral with Parakeet Party and Crushed Curry with Calypso Coral. I cleaned the stamp after each leaf and rubbed out the excess color from my sponge daubers to keep my ink pad colors from mixing.

I embossed the stamped panel with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered the panel to a Crumb Cake mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Calypso Coral card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Crushed Curry strip and trimmed the end with my paper snips. I folded a length of natural ribbon, secured the middle with a glue dot and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the label over the ribbon with dimensionals and finished it with a rustic metallic dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I inked up the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Crushed Curry and Calypso coral and stamped it next to the sentiment. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

We had beautiful Fall Foliage this week, but after Halloween, half of the trees are bare – the peak passed so fast! Falling leaves are so peaceful, and these sentiments are so pretty, making a nice fall friendship card, encouragement card or even a get well card.

Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Here is a CAS (clean and simple) card made with the fun Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle with a pretty embossed background You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a theme challenge this week and our theme is Christmas!

I embossed a panel of Basic White with the fun Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic White mat.

I used the ornament dies from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle to cut outlines from Real Red, Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party glimmer paper. I used a dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ blend to color the Parakeet Party ornament darker. I adhered the ornaments to the embossed panel with dots of liquid glue. After they dried, I adhered the embossed panel to the front of a Thick Basic White card base.

I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on strips of Basic Black and sprinkled them with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess powder and heated them with my heat tool until they were bright and shiny. I trimmed the ends and adhered the sentiments to the card front with glue dots. I adhered some rhinestones around the card for a little more bling.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the present in Real Red next to the sentiments and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle is pretty versatile and great for clean and simple Christmas cards. The outline dies for the trees and ornaments is really unique – it’s a fun set to play with!

Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets bundle will be available tomorrow when the Fitting Florets Promotion begins. The bundle is an early release from the upcoming January – June 2023 Mini Catalog and the promotion will also include products that are available for a limited time, including the pretty Fitting Florets designer series paper and the Framed and Festive cling stamp set. And this is all perfect for making Christmas cards. I used both of these products with the beautiful oval frames from the new bundle for a Double Easel fun fold Christmas card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I adhered panels of the beautiful Christmas themed Fitting Florets DSP to the sections of the Real Red easel section before adhering the easel section to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with liquid glue. I cut the large oval frame from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets bundle and stamped the Framed and Festive sentiment in Real Red ink on the oval (save the frame for the next project). I cut another large oval frame from Brushed Gold foil and a small oval from Real Red card stock. I placed the stamped large oval inside the large frame and adhered the small frame on top with liquid glue. I cut anther small oval from Basic White and adhered the frame and oval to the back of the large frame with liquid glue. This gives a nice finished look to the back of the large oval frame.

I adhered the frame to the front of the easel with liquid glue applied to the lower section of the oval. I stamped the double flower from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on Basic White. I colored it with So Saffron, Real Red and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut the large greenery sprig die from Soft Succulent and two of the small detailed leaves from Evening Evergreen. I adhered the large greenery and detailed leaves to the frame with glue dots and the flowers with dimensionals.

I adhered white dots to the berry parts of the greenery and finished the front with three of the new adhesive gold swirls that will be available tomorrow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen in the corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped the little leaf pair in the top corner in Evening Evergreen and the sentiment from the Framed and Festive stamp set in the center in Evening Evergreen. I colored the flowers and leaves with Soft Succulent, Real red and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends and trimmed the bottom with Fitting Florets DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The beautiful Fitting Florets designer series paper and the Framed and Festive stamp set will only be available during the promotion period that begins tomorrow. But the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets bundle will be available afterwards when the new January – June 2023 Mini Catalog goes live. It’s sure to be a favorite!
