Counting Sheep by Stampin' Up!

Swap card by Meg Loven

One of the most popular Stampin' Up! products in the SALE-A-BRATION brochure is the stamp set COUNTING SHEEP (#156591).  And, the SHEEP DIES (156600) that coordinate with the stamp set!  These three cards are swap cards that I received earlier this month from my wonderful demonstrator friends.  Tomorrow ~ a PDF showing you how to make the cute sheep face each other!

Designer Series Paper SALE but ~

July is a favorite month for crafters because select Designer Series Papers are on sale all month at a 15% discount!  But one package (on page 171), PATTERN PARTY is not on sale.  Why?  Because it is part of Stampin' Up!'s reward program.  And, it is a great package of 12" x 12" paper for stampers and scrappers because it contains 48 sheets ~ 4 each of 12 double-sided designs that you can see here.

2021-07-08 (3)And, here's a cute card using some of the designs from this package of paper ~ this stamp set,     TURTLE FRIENDS, is bundled with a cute turtle punch ~ you can find it on page 56 in the annual catalog!  Who  wouldn't  enjoy  receiving  this  cute  card???198076623_10225959335549928_1419194570077912538_n (2)

Sunday afternoon Stampin' Up! class ~ Sand & Sea

How purrrrfect ~ a rainy windy cold day and we celebrated by creating 'beachy' cards and enjoying being together in the warm comfortable studio!  Lovely!  You can find this wonderful suite of Stampin' Up! products on pages 40 - 42 in the Mini Catalog.  This bundle of stamps and products are really purrrrfect for anyone living in Tidewater Virginia surrounded by the Bay and the Ocean ~ here are the cards we made yesterday....

Using the die, embossing folder and designer series paper
Using the die, stamps and Seaside Spray ink.
The easiest way to create this card is to stamp the shells and fussy cut! I know Abby won't like that idea!!!
This birthday card uses the DSP, yarn and square vellum doilies.

Sharing some fabulous handmade birthday cards!

Stampin' Up! Birthday Swap Cards

When you sign up to be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, the person that you sign up 'under' is your Upline.  I am an 'upline' to an amazing group of ladies from Hampton Roads, Northern Virginia and Florida.  Once a month we meet in the Cat/Art Studio to enjoy each others company, share ideas, swap cards, celebrate and, of course, stamp!  You come if you can ~ no rules for demonstrators ~ no stress either.  My team,  SOUTHERN STARS, meets on the second Saturday of the month at 2 PM in the CAT/ART STUDIO.  (If you would be interested in joining please don't hesitate ~ Sale-A-Bration is the ABSOLUTELY BEST TIME to join!!!)  These are the swap cards from our meeting ~ FABULOUS, RIGHT?

Honey Bee DSP & Stampin' Up!

The Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (152311) is Black and White with gold foil accents on some of the designs.  It can be paired with the Honey Bee Bundle on page 30 in the Spring Mini Catalog but it certainly doesn't have to be ~ it can easily stand on its own and it's FREE with a $50 Stampin' Up! order during Sale-A-Bration (SAB).  In STAMP CLUB this month we used the HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU stamp set which is also in the SAB brochure.  I added some of the the Golden Honey DSP to the cards we made to show you how versatile this paper is.  And, the video below will show you more possibilities.
