Be Merry

Swap card with Be Merry DSP

Yesterday I concentrated on completing a 40 card swap for my Founders Circle group of friends.  Kim Williams is the coordinator of the swap and we  were to use stamps from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

Swap Card

It is a relatively simple card using the Be Merry Designer Series Paper, Real Red card stock and Whisper White embossing powder.  The little dots on the card are from a package of GLITTER ENAMEL DOTS on page 196 in the Annual Catalog.  The 'merriest Christmas wishes' that I embossed is from a stamp set, Watercolor Christmas, that is coordinated with a PROJECT KIT on page 34 in the Holiday Catalog.  I used this kit on Saturday at the vendor fair at Bayside Presbyterian Church (unfortunately, it was pretty much rained out!).  The cards in the kit are below ~ what do you think?  The kit is $20 and makes 20 cards ~ easily!!!

It's August and time to redeem those coupons.........

 Remember when your July Stampin' Up! ORDER earned you coupons to spend in August?  Stampin' Up! sent an email to each of you and, in the email, a COUPON CODE.  It is time to redeem your coupon and the Early Release, below, might be just the way to do it............ 


This stamp set and die bundle are in the HOLIDAY CATALOG ~ coming soon to your mail box!  In the meantime STAMPIN' UP! has decided to release the bundle early so it is one that you might like to use your coupons on.  Take a look at the bundle in this video ~ it makes some really pretty cards.  We used it in my CHRISTMAS IN JULY class (and, we may use it again this month ~ CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST!). 

 It is easy to redeem your COUPON CODES.  Print out the page below for specific instructions from STAMPIN' UP! and then just click on the SHOP NOW link above the CAT to go to my online store.  The cat says THANKS!
