September Special ~ Dies to die for............

Apples Blossoms Card

All during the month of September 2022, there will be six new Stampin’ Up! die sets available. All of the sets coordinate with stamp sets already available for purchase, either from the 2022-23 Annual Catalog or the July – December 2022 Mini Catalog. One of my favorites from this promotion is the Apple Blossoms Die set that goes with the Apple Harvest Stamp Set from the mini catalog.

I love the way that the dies allow me to place the stamped images on a base of colored cardstock, such as with the large branch of apples in this card. I also like that I can stamp and die-cut the apple blossoms and layer them wherever I’d like to. The Apple Blossoms Die set is one I’ll enjoy having as I stamp autumn-themed projects over the next few months.

Other stamp sets that have die sets available for purchase during September are:

            Fresh Cut Stems Dies, to go with the Fresh Cut Flowers Stamp Set (Annual Catalog)

            Playful Piggy Dies, to go with the This Birthday Piggy Stamp Set (Annual Catalog)

            Tree Trimming Dies, to go with the Trimming the Tree Stamp Set (Annual Catalog)

            Waterfall Canyon Dies, to go with the Waterfall Canyon Stamp Set (Annual Catalog)

            Yeti Dies, to go with the Yeti to Party Stamp Set (Mini Catalog)

If you haven’t bought the stamp sets yet, you can buy bundles that include both the die set and the stamp set at a 10% discount!

I learned..........

IMG_8499I learned something yesterday when I read the email that Stampin' Up! sent about PAPER PUMPKIN, did you?  I didn't know that they provided a monthly printable case insert to store and organize Paper Pumpkin stamps and supplies.  I immediately printed off the case insert for this months SWEET SUNFLOWERS kit ~ you can see it above.  It's very attractive!  I even found the case in one of my supply drawers!  If you would like to store your PP supplies you can find the STANDARD STAMP CASES on page 149 in the annual catalog.  The order number is 119105 and they are $8.50 for 4 cases.  If you didn't receive the email let me know and I will forward mine to you.  The kit this month is watercolored sunflowers, below...
