Update on the Lily Framelit Dies

Hey all, just a quick update on those Lily Framelit dies, they are officially SOLD OUT! Nope, that didn't take long at all! Keep in mind, we are in the final couple of weeks for Sale-a-bration, so everything is fair game at this point. Everything Sale-a-bration and Sale-a-bration Coordination is "while supplies last" and my predicition is, the Story Label punch will be next on the sold out list...just a hunch. But, bottom line, anything on your "must have" list, you will not want to wait because there's a pretty good chance you will miss out if you do.

I also have  survey open, I am looking to see what interest there may be out there in getting my monthly card classes "to go". I offer a monthly card class to my local customers and I'm currious as to whether or not there is an interest in having the opportunity to purchase these classes to go? If you would like to share your opinion, hop on over to the survey here

Anyhoo, Happy Stamping,

Hello Cupcake Sale-a-bration 2019 Bridge Card

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by again! I'm so glad you are here. I want to share a fun card with you using the Hello Cupcake Sale-a-bration stamp set. I'm really going to be sad when this stamp set leaves us at the end of the month. But, sadly, all great things do come to an end and Sale-a-bration is one of them. It ends on March 31st for another year. So, I do suggest, if there is anything on the Sale-a-bration list that you want, now is the time, because everything is currently "while supplies last" so as supply is depleted, items are being discontinued. Yes, sad it is indeed.
Anyway, today's card is the popular Bridge Card design. And OMG! It's so easy! But so fun!
So, here is my list of supplies with measurements:
Gorgeous Grape CS 4 1/4" x 8"; scored along the 8" side at 1 1/4"; 2 1/2"; 5 1/2"; and 6 3/4" and for the bridge a piece cut 1 1/4" x 5 1/2"
How Sweet It Is DSP 4 pieces 1" x 4" and for the bridge, 1" x  1/4"
Coastal Cabana 2 3/4" x 4"
Whisper White 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" and scraps for the cupcake
Coastal Cabana Ink
Gorgeous Grape Ink
Highland Heather Ink

Fold on all the score lines creating a gate-fold card with the ends folded back. Adhere DSP to the panels. Stamp the sentiment onto the piece of Whisper White CS in Gorgeous Grape and adhere to the Coastal Cabana panel and adhere to the inside center of the card. Then stamp another sentiment directly onto the DSP for the bridge also in Gorgeous Grape ink and layer onto the bridge CS. Using a strong adhesive such as Tear n Tape, adhere the bridge to the outer flaps of the card base, making sure to keep the bridge straight. Next stamp the cupcake wrapper in Coastal Cabana; and the frosting in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. Cut these pieces out using your Paper Snips and add to the bridge with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this quick and simple card and I hope it has encouraged you to try a Bridge card. And if you do, be sure to stop back here and share your results. I would LOVE to see.
And Before I forget, our friends at Stamp n Storage are at it again! They have come up with an awesome solution to our 6" x 6" paper storage! It's brand new today and YOU are first to hear about it! You can check it out by clicking here. And if you use the code 6N8PAPER at checkout, you will get 10% off today only!

Hello Cupcake Double Z-Fold

Hello and Happy Wednesday! Well, it's another cold winter day here in CNY but, it's staying daylight longer so Spring is coming...I hope lol. Anyhoo, I have a fun double Z fold card to share with you and it features the totally adorable Hello Cupcake Sale-a-bration stamp set. It's just so stinkin' cute.

To begin, you will need a card base that measures 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 2 3/4" and 6" ; I used Lovely Lipstick and added 2 pieces of DSP from the All My Love collection measuring 2 1/2" x 4" and 4 3/4" x 4"
Then, for the second Z fold piece, I used a piece of Flirty Flamingo cut 3" x 9" scored at 3" and 6" and folded into a Z. I then cut 2 pieces of Whisper White 2n3/4" x 2 3/4" and stamped the sentiments from Hello Cupcake in Lovely Lipstick ink and attached the Flirty Flamingo to the Lovely Lipstick card base. Then, I stamped the cupcake "wrapper" in Lovely Lipstick, the "cupcake" in Daffodil Delight and the "frosting" in Flirty Flamingo.

Sadly, as of yesterday, the coordinating Call Me Cupcake Framelit Dies sold out, however, these can easily be fussy cut, and I popped them up on Stampin' Dimensionals to complete the card.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Be sure to stop in tomorrow for another fun card using this great Sale-a-bration offering.
Happy Stamping!

Important Update on Die Inventory

Hey guys,
An important update from Stampin' Up! regarding our die inventory and we have a few that are at risk for selling out very quickly and when they do, they will be gone forever. So, if any of these dies happen to be on your must have list, it's important that you order very soon.
Here is what Stampin' Up! has to say:
"Due to complications with our die supplier, we’ve run out of the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies (item 148553) in North America and they will not be available in the future; this item will retire with the 2019 occasions catalog and because of these complications, we will not be able to replenish inventory on this item. If you placed an order for these dies while the item was on backorder, your order will be filled as soon as possible.
We anticipate our inventory may soon be depleted on a few additional dies that will retire with the current occasions catalog. The dies listed below will retire and will likely run out before the end of the catalog sales period.
If we sell out of these dies, they will no longer be available to order:
  • Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies (item 148529)
  • Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies (item 148549)
  • Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies (item 148548)
We are also concerned that we may run out of a few dies that will carry over into the new annual catalog. If this happens, they may go on backorder or may not be available to order until we are able to replenish the inventory.
We recognize that this is frustrating for you, and apologize for the inconvenience you are experiencing. The last thing we want to do is disappoint our demonstrators and their customers, so we are working on solutions to improve the situation with this product line."

Get 'em While You Can!

Hi, I wanted to drop by and let you in on a little secret. Well, maybe it's not a secret because it happens every year, but the gorgeous 2017-2019 InColor collection will be going away and in the next few weeks, it will be announced that they will only be available "while supplies last", so really, right now is the last opportunity to pretty much guarantee their availability. You see, right now, if they happen to run out today, they will order more and get them to you, but in a few weeks, if they run out, that will be that. So, if you still need to grab those ink refills or want to get a stash of your favorite cardstock, now is the time to do that. Same goes for the coordinating Designer Series Paper and embellishments like ribbon and such. So, I just want to get the word out there for you. I wouldn't want you to miss out.
Happy Stamping,
