One Stamp Set Card & Survey

Knowing that we can load up on lots of Designer Series Paper (DSP) right now is inspiring me to have Ann use it more often than not these days.  How can we not use it when you get a free pack for every 3 packs that you buy?  It’s amazing what a little splash of DSP will do for your card!

Case in point:  This striped piece from the Gingham Garden DSP has many colors in it.  We trimmed it down to only have Island Indigo, Night of Navy and a little dotted line of Melon Mambo.  This would normally not be this dog’s color palette on Very Vanilla, but somehow – it works!  And with only ONE STAMP SET!

Quick Card

What wild color combo would you like to see?

Speaking of color combos – I have a favor to ask.  We made new buttons for this new blog, but I’m not entirely convinced that these are the buttons that should stay.  I’m wondering if you like these buttons or the last ones.  Here’s a peek at which ones I’d like you to pick from:







So do you like the gray one or the navy one?   Please help us by taking this quick 3-4 question survey here.  The winner will be invited to attend our Master Class the week of July 22nd along with our Master Stampers.  If the winner is already a Master Stamper, we have a nice collection of new Stampin’ Up! product for you from the new catalog.  But you MUST take the survey to win.  (Survey will close at midnight on Sunday, 7/7)

Here are some of the products that we used.  Click on any of the pictures to find out more or to add them to your stash.

It’s a great time to be the blog dog of a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

We read & appreciate your comments! They make great bedtime stories for Ann to read to me!


  1. I just took the survey and had no trouble at all, so you must have fixed the glitch.
    Love this card and the subtle way you used the DSP; I really, really need to get the stamp set. I also adore the clever way you matted the sentiment. I hardly ever think to off-set the mats, but not everything needs to be centred. Your sentiment is much more dynamic and interesting because of how you’ve placed the Artisan Label Punch piece.

    • Thanks, Doris!

  2. I was going to take the survey as well but I couldn’t access the buttons. All I got was a blank picture.

    • I’m sorry that it didn’t work for you. It’s in a frame that’s run by the Survey company. I’m posting an alternative in a few minutes.

  3. I was going to take the survey, but all I got was a cute little “ping” sound and no change in the page site or survey to take. Am I doing something wrong?

    I’m exicted! I’m placing my July Stamp Pup order today! goodies will be here soon!

    • Sharon: I’m sorry that it didn’t work for you. It’s in a frame that’s run by the Survey company. I’m posting an alternative in a few minutes.

      • Took the survey this morning. It worked like a charm!
