Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and New Host Code


Isn’t this a cool project! Bright and cheery! This project is made with Stampin’Up!’s Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle which includes the Beautiful Bouquet Photopolymer stamp set and Bouquet Bunch Framelits. You can buy the stamp set and framelits individually but you save 10% when you buy the bundle.

Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies

Above is the Mini Treat Bag Framelits. You can make your own little bag out of any paper you want! Designer Series Paper is great. The above sample was made with the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. 

Tip: Be sure to use Tear and Tape Adhesive to put your bag together. It is a strong adhesive and will hold the edges together better than Snail Adhesive.

Beautiful Bouquet Photopolymer Bundle

As you can see it is a very detailed stamp set and framelits! And the details seem to make all the difference in your project.

New Host Code and Bubble Over Celebration Card


Here is a happy card for you! It is certainly bright and cheery, perfect for a celebration! You could use this for a birthday or for a retirement card or perhaps a job promotion!

This card is made with the  Bubble Over Bundle of products from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog.


I like the details of this card, like the oval shapes behind the bottle. The little dashes around the edge really add a lot. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the white oval and the Layering Ovals Framelits for the scalloped oval.  I added bubbles to the card using sequins and the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes from the Occasions Catalog. The Epoxy Shapes include circle and teardrop or raindrop shapes.


Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes # 145632


I hope you like my card, I sure enjoyed making it!

Party Pandas by Stampin’Up!


Isn’t he the cutest little Panda? This is the most adorable stamp set! It comes in wood mount or clear mount, and it is FREE with a qualifying order! I used paper from the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper that is also FREE with a qualifying order.


The banner is made with Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock using the Banner Triple Punch. There is a little design in the DSP that has the Lemon Lime Twist color in it so I just went with that. This stamp set comes with 3 greeting stamps! Love it! These cards are bright and cheery!

Here are some with a black and white theme, perfect since this ties in with the Panda!


Striking isn’t it? Just simple black and white with a splash of red! Don’t you love the Happy Birthday font?


Here is a different idea using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make a tag. Again keeping with the black and white color scheme with a splash of red. The Designer Series Paper is retired but there are 3 different Designer Series paper in the Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalog with a black and white design. I will list at least one of them in the supply list.

December Host Code and Vintage Leaves Card


With the fall season almost gone, I thought I would show you a few projects made with the Vintage Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set. I thought this card would do for a masculine birthday card. This set is particularly good for stamping backgrounds. I stamped the background of this card with the stamps in the set. The speckles and the background on the Crumb Cake panel  are from the Timeless Texture Clear Mount Stamp Set.


This stamp set has coordinating framelits too! The happy birthday greeting comes from a stamp in one of the past Paper Pumpkin stamp sets. I will post an alternative Happy Birthday greeting stamp in the supply list.


The host code for next month  is DPJUHC9P .  Just place an order in my online store of $75( before shipping and tax) and I will send you a FREE Light Cherry Cobbler Stampin’Blend.

Cherry Cobbler Light Stampin' Blends Marker

You can find more information on this monthly special here. This Host Code is in effect until December 26. I believe every cardmaker/papercrafter will love these new alcohol markers. So I will be offering different ones for my monthly host code offers.

Remember do not add the Light Cherry Cobbler Stampin’Blend to your order, as you will receive this from me not Stampin’Up!

I hope you like my card and it inspires you to CREATE!
