Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Bundle

July 13, 2020

The Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Bundle is just too cute, for sure….just melts my heart!

Cats and dogs got equal footing in this set!

Although I stamped my own background, the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper is just out of this world adorable! I just could not bear to cut into it, yet! The expressions on the dogs and cats is priceless- and that dog with his paw up cracks me up! I love the small patterns sheets of DSP along with the big images of the playful pets:)

The Playful Pets Suite has cute little silver Stampin’ Up! Playful Pets Trinkets with hearts and bones! And the Playful Alphabets is just essential for me lately- used it on about 5 cards last week. The 3/4″ letters are the perfect size to fit various words and symbols on cards!

A simple inside greeting…

Stampin’ Up! Most Wonderful Time of the Year Product Medley- a returning favorite!

July 10, 2020

More Christmas in July…with some product I got last year and never played with until a few days ago! The Stampin’ Up! Most Wonderful Time of Year is a returning favorite.

I am thrilled I pulled out this Most Wonderful Time of the Year Product Medley. It is beautiful!!!
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Product Medley will be available in the Holiday Catalog on August 4. The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley  includes: the Most Wonderful Time of the Year stamp set/dies, 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (8 each of 6 double-sided designs), 12 gold foil card fronts (4 each of 3 designs),  7 sticker sheets, 10 yards of white/fold tinsel trim, and 58 gold adhesive-backed faceted stars.

The deer is from one of the sticker sheets.

You can order the whole Most Wonderful Time of the Year Product Medley OR you can just get the REFILL kit without the stamp set/dies and tinsel. Personally, I think the DSP with gold foil accents in the REFILL kit is the BOMB and easily used with other stamp sets!! Make sure to check it out when the catalog goes live on August 4th!!!

I used a sentiment from the returning stamp set Merry Moose. The sentiment seemed to go so well with the calm and serene DSP on the front.

Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle Video Tutorial

July 1, 2020

I am smitten with the NEW Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle! It is so cute! I loved working with the NEW In Colors Just Jade and Magenta Madness with the coordinating In Color Enamel Dots.

So, here is the card I made AFTER making my video…when I was cleaning up after the video, I  saw how much better the card looked with the cardstock shadow being a different color than the Designer Series Paper! Hmmm…why didn’t I do that initially?

Things that make you go-hmmm?

Well, here is the video for you showing how to easily make this card:



The shadow is still cool but so much better with the contrast, am I right????

The So Much Happy Bundle has versatile sentiments in it, not just for birthdays…
