Enjoy stamping but...
*Your schedule is booked for the classes you want to attend...
*Like to stamp with your buddies & they are busy at class time too...
*Want to create pretty cards but that creative bug hasn't bitten yet...
 
Here's a great solution for you--Sandi's Simply Stamping...because you SIMPLY do the stamping!
 
You get 2 Great designs (supplies for 5 cards of each design). This kit used the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.. SSS July-Aug Beautiful Friendship 1SSS July-Aug Beauiful Friendship 2
You can stamp them anytime, anywhere your schedule permits AND, if you like to stamp with your buddy, your buddy can purchase SSS too and you can schedule your "together" time when your schedules are clear.
 
Here's the good part:
All the prep work is done..cutting, scoring, dry embossing, die cutting, and bow tying.
The kit is ready to stamp and assemble!!  You use your stamps, inks, wet embossing supplies, and adhesive.
So you can have the fun and none of the design/prep work!!
 
Here's how it works
Purchase the SSS by July 20th
Kits will be ready by August 20th
(contains card supplies, you'll receive directions & pictures via email)
 
When you register you'll receive a list of supplies that you'll need which gives you plenty of time to get what you need before the kits are ready. You don't have to use the same stamps and ink colors that I use if you have something equivalent!
 
Order your SSS today before July 20th! (and have your buddy purchase one too so you can stamp together)

Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper

Today we'll create a card using Perennial Esssence Designer Series Paper that looks like a million dollar card! 6-18-19 Blog Perennial Essence DSP card

Isn't that gorgeous...and it only takes a couple of minutes to create this beauty because the designer paper does all that hard work for us. This paper is designed from a painting that has been transformed into this gloriously rich set of papers...each of the six designs is a stand-alone piece. In class this past weekend the ladies thought it was reminiscent of Monet's work.

I have to say that it was very difficult for me to make that first cut--once I accomplished the first cut and saw how awesome it looked on the actual card I was ok with the cutting. So I completely understand the angst of that first cut! (My recommendation is to purchase 2 packs---one to "keep" so I'll always have it and the other one to actually use.) Some day I might be able to cut into that first pack but today I just need to know I own it. (If you are not a conn0isseur of Designer Paper you will most likely not understand how I feel about "ownership"--LOL)

I will give you the step by step  directions for creating this lovely simple card and they I'll provide the supply list.  Hit the Shop Now button or click on one of the product images and you'll be in my store--order your supplies now and you can create this  card yourself.

Remember, when you place an online order if you use this month's Host Code (9EAGCTMM) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product from me for each $50 in product that you purchase.

Secret Trick with the Stampin'Up! Take Your Pick Tool

Today I'm going to show you a Secret Trick with the Stampin'Up! Take Your Pick Tool!  

This is the great new tool we have to use for multiple tasks--pick up sequins, pierce out tiny pieces from dies, scoring with the stylus, scoop off embellishments that land in the wrong place...that's all very  handy.

Have you ever been wet embossing--you've rubbed the stamping area with your embossing buddy (to remove finger print oils or other moisture--to keep the powder just adhering to the inked image). Then you stamp your image in Versamark, sprinkle on the the embossing powder, flick off the excess and then.....yep there's a tiny spot of embossing powder right where you do NOT want it! Dang...and things were going great until then.  This is what I'm talking about..see just to the right above the "s"Excess embossing powder

Well, listen up--this is a great fix for you! Take the putty end of your Take Your Pick....looks like this... Putty

Then gently dab up the excess powder.... Picking it up

And this is the "after"----all gone! After
FABULOUS!!! Now you are ready to heat with the Heat Tool and your embossing will look perfect.

Now take your Paper Snips and just clip off the very end of the putty and you are ready for your next task with your Take Your Pick tool.  There's just a never-ending use for this super tool. One of the really great features is that you only need the one base tool and all the "tools" are simply screwed into an end...the piercing end and the stylus are both on the same part--just unscrew from your base tool, flip to the other end and screw back into the base. You are ready for the next task!

And...there's a new accessory for the tool...it's a Die Brush Tip (#149655)---I can' wait to put that baby to work!

Order yours today...hit the Shop Now button or click on one of the product images below and you'll be in my store....

*If you place an online order and enter this month's Host Code (9EAGCTMM) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up'! product for each $50 in product that you purchase.

Retiring Stampin'Up! Products

We're saying goodbye to our Retiring Stampin'Up! Products...the 2017-2019 In Color family! Yes, some of these beautiful shades are going away forever...this means that if you need to supplement your supply to make sure you have what you need for your creations...this is definitely the time to get them. In colors

My favorite is still Powder Pink but then I'm always going to pick pink! But I have fallen in love with all the others too--see how well they all blend together...don't leave any of them out of your color pallette.

When the full retiring list comes out (usually in April) some of these products will be out of stock overnight. You can be smart in getting yours now before they are gone from the shelves...in fact some of these are already on the back order list. If you get yours ordered now, you'll still be able to get these when the supply is replenished. Once these go "out of stock" you won't be able to order them any longer.

This is a great time to stock up because Sale-a-bration will still be in effect for 3 weeks...you can still earn those freebies while replenishing your supplies of these outgoing In Colors.

Remember:
*When you purchase $50 in product you can select a free item from Stampin'Up! (this is a reward
*When you earn 4 rewards from Stampin'Up! you'll get a bonus from me (box of chocolates + $5 coupon) I just packed the boxes this weekend and did I say "Ghirardelli" is a key chocolate here? LOL.
*If you order ONLINE and use this month's host code (MN3BV2BR) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product from me for each $50 in product that you purchase....does it get any better?
