Stampin' Up! Inspiring Iris

I haven't posted in a few days...I have been busy pulling retiring stamps, dies, punches, ribbons, etc.  As much as I am going to miss many things, I am looking forward to what is coming in the new Annual Catalog!  If you don't have a demonstrator and would like a catalog, get in touch with me!

This card was posted  a few years ago and is one of my favorites.  I am going to miss this two step stamp set - such a fun set to use!  I cased this from a swap card from fellow demonstrator Martha Armstrong.  Inspiring Iris is available until May 3 and then will be gone forever...

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Posies

On this Good Friday, I have a lot of hope that the days ahead will be brighter and we can have some kind of normalcy.  I hope all of you have a Happy and Blessed Easter!

One of my favorite kits of all time, Gorgeous  Posies is retiring.  And it is on sale!  It was $32 and is now $26.50!  Woo Hoo!  The greeting is from Arrange a Wreath, also retiring.  

As much as I will miss a lot of our retiring product, I am looking forward to all of the fun, new things coming in the upcoming Annual Catalog!  I placed my pre-order this morning.  Next week check back in to see some of what is coming your way in May!

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Alternative

My daughter Aimee sent me this alternative card she made with March's Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I love what she did!  She stenciled clouds in Bumblebee Ink on a Stitched Square of Bumblebee cardstock, then stamped the birds.  I love the angled background paper, which is actually one of the envelope liners.  Beautiful card, Aimee!  Thanks for sending it to me!

Stampin' Up! Playing With Patterns

This little basket is so cute and easy to make.  The pattern has certainly been around for several years!   My daughter, Julie was here a week or so ago and made one of these. I had forgotten all about this I thought these would look cute on our dinner table for Easter with a little grass and some candy for each person.  

You can use cardstock or designer series paper.  Start with a piece that is 6" x 6"  Score at 2" and 4".  Turn and score at 2" and 4".   Cut where the dotted lines are.  Fold into the basket shape.  Adhere the folded up sides with Seal +.  Embellish as desired.  I used the Medium Daisy Punch and punched two and adhered them together to make one flower.

Stampin' Up! Springtime Joy

Unfortunately we won't be having most of our kids and grandkids here for Easter.  I need to get their little gifts out now so hopefully they will get them before Easter.  I put together small bags of Easter candy and made them each a card.  It's hard to see but I used the Stitched Whimsical Dies to add a border.  (Spoiler Alert: These dies are carrying over to the new Annual Catalog!)
