The HAPPY FOREST FRIENDS collection is on pages 46 and 47 in the annual catalog and is the beginning of the 'kids section' of stamp sets.  I love this bundle and wanted you to see several different ways to use it.  What other possibility do you see?

Love this one that I found online.


Mktl_shr_1_perfect_partners_0822_na (2)When I first saw the Yeti to Party stamp set in the July-December Mini Catalog I thought it was so cute but didn’t have a clue how I would use it. Then Stampin’ Up! created the Perfect Partners—dies for six existing stamp sets that did not have coordinating dies.  Dies for the Yeti ~ makes life so easy!  I had the stamp set but I ordered the dies as soon as they were available!


Don't forget you can save 10% if you purchase the stamp set and dies together as a bundle. This bundle and the dies are available only through September 30, 2022.  Information on ordering any of the six bundles or die sets on this flyer....

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!

All Occasion Cards

This beautiful designer series paper, Wonderful World, is in the SALE-A-BRATION catalog on page 14.  The paper has beautiful images of a variety of flowers and I fussy cut them to add to the front of my cards.  I am sending my set of cards to my Aunt in Green Bay ~ hope she likes them!  The background layer of paper is also from the 12" x 12" DSP.  I used the stamp set GO TO GREETINGS from the annual catalog for the sentiments.  Have you seen this unusual set that has our most often used greetings in different fonts and sizes?  I think it's a must have!

Stylish Sketches

One of my favorites in the SALE-a-bration catty ~ Stylish Sketches stamp set ~



This gift box, below, is included when you order the KRAFT NOTE CARDS & ENVELOPES / purrrfect for this set (page 137 AC).  For the box top I added the forest design DSP (RINGS OF LOVE, free during Sale-a-bration) layered on Tahitian Tide cardstock using the Deckled Rectangles Dies (page 170 AC).  The stamp set is free until the end of the month when you place an order of $50 or more.  Let me know if you are interested ~ text 757-641-9354 ~ or, if you have questions.  Tomorrow ~ the set of cards that I created with this stamp set ~ the combination makes a great gift!
