Do you ever see something that you’re instantly attracted to? That’s how it is for me with the latest limited edition photopolymer stamp set, Snuggles and Smooches.
I think I’m buying it with my allowance as soon as Ann’s back is turned.Read More
Who is still out there working on their Christmas cards?
I see a lot of hands raised!
Many crafters start early on projects because it might take a bit more time than driving to the store or ordering online. But this early?Read More
Do you ever start off to make one card and you end up making another? We started off wanting to make 2 specific technique cards for our Master Stamper members, but I insisted that she make a masculine Valentine card for my favorite huMAN. Ann & I share the same favorite color: anything RED. And not any red. Has to be a blue red like Real Red or Cherry Cobbler. But my favorite huMAN likes blue. Color Coach to the rescue! Maybe this isn’t a true blue, but we hope Tempting Turquoise will rock his world. It’s a bright, fun Valentine that will take the chill out of the...Read More
In case you were born last night and learned how to read this morning, it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow! Do you have your cards made? Do you have your dinner or movie plans? Valentine’s Day isn’t just about your sweetie. Have you made a card for a friend? Here’s one that we did at Stamp Club the other night that was inspired by our friend Patty. We needed a quick card to round out the night and this was it. (I shared another card they did in yesterday’s post.) Ann & my favorite huMAN already started celebrating Valentine’s Day early by doing...Read More

Stampin’ Up! will continue to see the special Valentine sets while supplies last. And with Sale-A-Bration, our biggest sale of the year starting today, you’ve SCORED!

Can you spot the Valentine heart on this postcard Valentine card? We’ve hidden it really well. Since we dogs are so good at hiding bones, I gave Ann a few tips on how to hide this heart. I can tell you it’s not obvious. And I can tell you that it might help that you scroll down to our pictures of what we used. At least then you know what to look for because TODAY is the last day you can get it! And you can’t get the LOVE banner and banner punch until tomorrow. And they’ll be free! Ann has a live online event our newsletter subscribers have been invited to where...Read More
Do you have a friend who loves shoes? I mean LOVES shoes? Some girls just LOVE SHOES!! You know who you are! Janet! Robin! Karen! And those girls just get giddy over a shoe card! And isn’t that the reaction you just want to get when you make someone a card? It’s easy to make the card match the person. You can match the subject. Like if they like roses, you can put roses on the front. (or shoes!) If they like blue, then you can make the card blue. And if they like both, you can make a card with blue roses! Now, where you could buy a card with blue roses!?! And it...Read More
Have you decided what kind of Valentine card you’re going to make your sweetie for Valentine’s Day? Have you made it and stashed it away already? I think my favorite huMAN is going to love this card that Ann made him. It’s not just the outside, but she finished off the inside just like in the card we showed yesterday. Well, not the SAME, but she finished off the inside in both of them. (And the inside of this one is going to be FREE!) The Flowerfull stamp is just $9.95 and only available until MONDAY! That’s right! You can see all our Stampin’ Up! Specials...Read More
If this is a masculine greeting card, where’s the greeting? Yep. I can hear it now! That’s the beauty of this card! You can make a few of them and leave them in a safe place. Then add a greeting as you need it. We originally thought of it as a Valentine Card, but there’s room down at the bottom left to make it a thank you card, a birthday card, or even a get well card. Teeny Tiny Wishes and a Word Window Punch would be great for that. You could even add a few rhinestones or pearls and give it to your favorite sailor girl! But there a two little additions that really...Read More
Most of you know that it’s a bit difficult for a dog to stay pretty when he sponges a card. The ink can get all over my mouth if I’m not careful. So I don’t sponge a lot. But this one needed a bit of sponging to help show off the Scallops Embossing Folder from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Seasonal Catalog. I think this card could be used for a guy, don’t you? We purposely left the Gold Sequin Trim a little straggly just so we could use some bling on a masculine card. And would you believe that we used the same Perfect Pennant stamp set and Banners Framelits...Read More
