Clean and Simple Foxy Friend

Just a quickie today (lol)...I saw a design over at CAS(E) this Sketch! and knew I wanted to use my new Foxy Friends stamp set for it. You can see a picture of the sketch just below the picture of my card. Doesn't that little fox look wonderfully chill in the setting sun?? Maybe it's the mushrooms. HAHAHAAA!!!



The Foxy Friends stamp set can also be purchased in a BUNDLE along with the Fox Builder Punch, for a 10% savings. Although I bought the bundle, I didn't use the punch on this card. I just stamped the fox and cut it out, although I did cut away the stamped tail and tuck it under the opposite side of the fox. The color scheme was based on the coordinating A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set for the greeting. For that banner, I cut a strip of card stock to 1-1/2" wide and punched the end with the Triple Banner Punch. Then I sort of eyeballed a curved cut from the tip of the banner to the end of the piece on one side, and used that cut out piece to place on the other side to trace the curve onto the other side to cut out.

Stampin' Supplies: Foxy Friends stamp set, Designer Tin of Cards stamp set, Whisper White card stock, Crumb Cake card stock, Pool Party card stock, Calypso Coral ink pad, Basic Gray ink pad, Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad, Chocolate Chip ink pad (stamped off once for the tree stump), White Perfect Accents (colored with two colors of Sharpies to get something that looks--hopefully--like Pool Party!), and the NEW Seaside embossing folder.

Paper Pumpkin $5 ONE DAY Special (ends 6/10/16 11:50pm MT)


Sign Up for Paper Pumpkin HERE! (promo code ONEDAYDEAL)

The $5 promotion is for FIRST-TIME Subscribers--but read all the way through for a special chance I'm offering ALL of my subscribers who take delivery of the JUNE kit! A few super important items of information that everyone needs to know right now are:

1) My understanding is that a first-time subscriber is determined by the email address you enter at sign up. If the email address has never been used to sign up for Paper Pumpkin, or if you have entered the email address but never actually took delivery of a kit, you are considered a first-time subscriber and this promo code should work for you.

2) To qualify to use this promo code, you will need to sign up for a Monthly Subscription and enter the promo code at my site HERE, by the deadline of 11:50pm MT on June 10th 2016. If you are already a subscriber of mine, please remember that if you want to update your payment or delivery information, or for some crazy reason skip this month's kit (lol), the same deadline applies to your account management at that same link.

3) I believe, even if you have not yet taken delivery of your first month's subscription, if you have entered a Prepaid Subscription to use on your Paper Pumpkin account, you will not be able to use the promo code. That's because you can only have one promo code on at a time, and I don't believe you can remove a Prepaid Subscription code once it has been entered. But as I said...I have something special to offer ALL my subscribers who take delivery of the June kit!

4) You can always choose more than one kit per month, by changing the quantity you desire on your account. However, if you have entered a promo code or Prepaid Subscription code, the code works only for the first kit you receive that month. You'll need to purchase additional kits at the regular $19.95 price. Just to be clear, let's say you are a first-time subscriber and you want TWO kits in June--you'd enter the promo code to get the first one at $5, and then you'd need to ensure you have a payment form entered on your account to which the second kit can be billed, and your total would be $24.95 for the two kits in June.

Sign Up for Paper Pumpkin HERE! (promo code ONEDAYDEAL)

June Kit Sneak Peek!!! We rarely get to know what's coming, Stampin' Up! just today released this picture of the confetti that's going to come in the kit. Does that mean it will have shaker cards?? I have no idea, but that confetti is ADORBS!


My Special Offer!!! EVERYONE who takes delivery of the June Paper Pumpkin kit through me, whether it's through the promo code, a Prepaid Subscription, first-time or otherwise...gets a FREE GIFT! It's gonna be a surprise, the surprises are not all going to be the same, but I will tell you that ONE person will be randomly chosen to receive a promo code for ONE FREE MONTH OF PAPER PUMPKIN!!!

Throwback Thursday: 2004 and Eyelets

I know, it's still Wednesday, but I came across these old card pictures on my hard drive that it looks like I scanned in 2004...and I just had to put them up NOW. Lol. The first couple of them are kinda small and will have to stay that way so I don't pixelate them, but I think you can still see the details. You should be able to click on the rest of them to see them larger if you want.






Hahahaaaaa! I guess I had to use eyelets on EVERY card!!! Actually, it was pretty cool because we had assortments of eyelets for each of our color families. And then we had some fun shapes like the stars, and I also remember some square and triangle eyelets in addition to the round ones. We also had some color coordinated wire--check out the squiggle on the bottom dragonfly card, it's got a 3D wire squiggle for flair. You can also see other fun "retro" details like using the crimper, deckle scissors, raffia, and the background of the horse card is a roller wheel. (yes, I still have the set and roller wheel. no, I'm not selling them.) And you are a die-hard Stampin' Up! fan if you can name some of the retired colors on these cards ;-)

LAST DAY to get Retiring Product + Price Increases Starting June 1st


Read to the end of the post to find out about the projects in the pictures above ;-)

TODAY is the LAST DAY of Stampin' Up!'s Retiring SALE with discounts up to 50% OFF! You'll want to head over to my Online Store ASAP, because the sale runs through 11:59pm MT MAY 31st ONLY!!! Check out the Important Pricing Information below to see how ordering NOW can SAVE YOU $$$

Unfortunately, the items on the Retiring Lists have been while supplies last ONLY, so if you enter the item number for a product and it doesn't show up, that means it has already sold out :-( The best way to see the currently available selection is to click on the Retiring Products section in my store.

Click here to SHOP NOW in my Online Store!

SELECT PRICES GOING UP!: (starting June 1st)

PRICE INCREASES - the following products will increase in price:

• 8-1/2″ x 11″ single color card stock packs (24 sheets) - $8 per pack

Place your order in my Online Store NOW

BUNDLES - will only be available at a 10% discount, as opposed to the current 15% discount. Also, any Bundles which have been available in previous catalogs will NOT be offered in new catalogs. For instance, the Rose Wonder stamp set and coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits will actually be available in the new catalog, but they will not be bundled (because they were previously bundled in the Occasions Catalog)...so after May 31st you'll be paying 15% MORE to get those two items. Again, NEW Bundles in the catalog will only be available at a 10% savings after today.

(NOTE ABOUT PROJECTS UP TOP: If you purchase the Rose Wonder Bundle, consider buying a package, or a few, of the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper...I will be putting up a tutorial for the fantastically simple but beautiful card set pictured at the top of this post, this evening!* You can get NINE stationery folders, with 4 cards for each folder, from each package of DSP. Don't forget to order a package of Whisper White Envelopes, and a package of Crumb Cake Cardstock (before it goes up $1 per pack), for all the cards you'll be making. Grab some Whisper White Baker's Twine for embellishment while you're at it!) UPDATE:*Ooops...we had Air Force Academy flyovers, then we had rain, hail, thunder and lightning off and on, so it has not been optimal to film...so sorry! I'll get it done as soon as I can...)

2016-17 Annual Catalog Open House - NEW In Colors!

It's that time of the year again...a NEW Annual Catalog Debut! Customers can start ordering from the Stampin' Up! 2016-17 Annual Catalog on June 1st at 3am MT. Demonstrators get to preorder select NEW catalog product before the debut, and I have a simple card to share with you right now, which happens to show all FIVE of the NEW 2016-2018 In Colors:


I want to point out that I have used a currently available stamp set for this card, that comes bundled with a punch, which you can get for 15% OFF, *IF* you order it BEFORE June 1st! Purchase the Grateful Bunch Photopolymer Bundle, and get the stamp set PLUS the coordinating Blossom Bunch Punch. Check out the pic below to see the items together. (To be honest, I'm not normally a big fan of photopolymer but I have a cool trick to show you with this stamp set and punch, that makes it TOTALLY worth it!) Don't forget to check out the Retiring Product section before June 1st to see if there's anything else you want to get before it's gone for good!!!


The card base is a current In Color: Tip Top Taupe. The rest of the colors (except white, of course) are the NEW 2016-2018 In Colors: Flirty Flamingo (top smallest flower), Peekaboo Peach (biggest flower), Sweet Sugarplum (lower medium-sized flower), Emerald Envy (stem and leaves image), and Dapper Denim (greeting). It can be difficult to get a picture that is going to show up on every device accurately, but all these colors are GORGEOUS. If you know me at all, you probably know my favorite color is blue, and that I've been pining for a denim color in our line up for a good while. So, yeah, I'm excited!

The best way to get a good look at the NEW In Colors, and to get your hands on a hard copy of the NEW Catalog, is to attend my 2016-17 Annual Catalog Open House here in Colorado Springs! (if you can't be here but don't mind working with a demonstrator long distance, contact me so we can set up a Virtual Open House experience that works for you--there are some FABULOUS specials in June you're especially gonna love!) Here are the dates and times for my upcoming Open House, with RSVP links:


2016-17 Annual Catalog Open House Events
FRIDAY, June 3rd from 12:30pm to 4:30pm MT - RSVP HERE
SATURDAY, June 4th from 12:30pm to 4:30pm MT - RSVP HERE

Each of these events will include the same opportunities and displays, but they are offered at different times for your scheduling convenience. Please note that you can get a Bonus FREE Gift for each friend you bring to the Open House who is new to me...but you *must* RSVP and give me your guests' names in advance, so I can be sure to prepare enough gifts, and Make & Take supplies! Yes, in addition to getting a NEW 2016-2018 In Color Sampler Bookmark, and your NEW 2016-17 Annual Catalog at my Open House, you will also get to enjoy TWO FREE Make & Take projects.
