Thinking Of You With Grateful Bunch!

Thinking Of You With Grateful Bunch!

This Occasions Catalog has been my most favorite to date!  I’ve been at this Stampin’ Up! thing for almost ten (10) years and I have to say it seems to get better than ever each year.  Honestly, as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I guess you could say that I should feel exhilarated with each catalog, but some years, it just doesn’t do it for me.  For example, this past Holiday Catalog wasn’t feeling the love for me!  Okay!  I said it!  One thing you won’t find me saying is that I love everything in all catalogs.

I don’t know about you, but I go to the bundles right away!  I LOVE to see what my 15% discount will get me on top of my 25% discount for being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  Now you are probably thinking to yourself, “I don’t get 25%?!”  I only get 20% discount on purchases.  Well, I will tell you that my title allows me that extra 5%.  I’ve earned it!  If you are a Bronze Elite or above, your discount is 25%!


yello gratefulThe card above features the Grateful Bunch Bundle and the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Pack.  One of the things that I noticed about this card, is the little sheen with this color.  At first I thought it was Basic Gray, but I think it appears to be Silver.

Using the Archival Basic Black ink, I stamped the flower image and then colored it in with my Crushed Curry marker.  Punching them out, adding a dimensional and then a little rhinestone to the center completes the look.

The “Thinking Of You” is from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set which has some wonderful sentiments to add to your cards.

Vintage Leaves Stampin’ Up!

Diagonal Leaves

By the looks of things here in southern New England, you wouldn’t know that Fall is knocking on our doorstep.  Aside from the stressed out trees with lack of water that are shedding their leaves, it is in the 80’s today and will be during this week.

It seems that I have latched onto this great stamp set and spent most of the weekend in my studio using it to create this month’s club projects and monthly stamping classes projects.

If you don’t already have the framelit dies, don’t miss the “Bundle and Save” 15% discount on theVintage Leaves Set. The best part is that I simply despise having to fussy cut anything.  I love it when Stampin’ Up! pairs a framelit or a punch with a stamp set.

Christine’s Tips:

  • Don’t forget to stamp your envelope for that special touch.
  • Keep “Thinking Of You” cards on hand.  They are perfect for sending for sympathy and just because.
  • Bundling stamps and framelits or punches, saves 15%.

These stamps are easy to work with and I can’t wait to work on some traditional scrapbook pages.

Just Because Flower Shop-Stampin’ Up!

Flower Shop Just Because

I think we ALL go through a creative slump at times when it comes to stamping.  Especially when family priorities take center stage.  One of the current du jour slogans going around is creative constipation.  I have had my preorder for a couple of weeks and the HORRORS, it has been sitting there feeling quite unloved.  Not even one newsletter has gone out to the folks who follow me.  Yikes!

Also, the weather has been terrific in these parts of Connecticut, so after a less than stellar winter, all I want to do is go outside and enjoy the sunshine and tend to the honeybees.

You're In My thoughtsDon’t you love it when you have an idea and it works perfectly?!  I do and this is the end result.  These Designer Series Papers are from two sets, the grid is from Moonlight, (retiring & on sale), the Stacked With Love is in the Occasions Catalog.

InsideDon’t forget to stamp the inside of your cards.  Recently, I have begun to do it for my Etsy Shop and I suddenly feel that I’ve completed the card.
