What a Great Easter Card!

What a Great Easter Card!

We are so thankful to those of you who have sent cards to me and Ann to celebrate her favorite holiday – Easter. Here’s the one that came yesterday from one of our 24/7 Stampers, Karen Thomas. It knocked our socks off! She even stamped the envelope! And it’s made with one of the stamp sets that is going away soon! And since my favorite huMAN loves blue, he really liked this! It reminded us that we haven’t heat embossed a lot lately. It’s such an impressive look that we need to get back on it before the temps get up in the triple digits. (It was...

5 Things to Stock Up Before They’re Gone

If you joined our live show yesterday, you’ll see where I was trying to tell Ann to share the 5 things I want her to get before Stampin’ Up! sells out of them. You can see where I whispered in her ear, but she didn’t pay me any mind. You’ll also see some sneak peeks at the new catalog in the video below! If you’re reading this in your email, you can watch it here. The 5 Things I’d Be Sure to Get First: Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets My gal pal Doodles bought a lot of these. They’re perfect for putting die-cut words on your card as you can see in this...

Birthday Card for a Sweet Girl

Birthday Card for a Sweet Girl

Today’s card isn’t for a kid like yesterday’s card was. This gal is grown up and taking on the world. My human sister is rocking the world so of course, we had to make a special card just for her. And Glimmer Paper is perfect to make this card sparkle! We sent it in a Priority envelope so that we could put lots of layers on it. Lots of Dimensionals. I wonder if this stamp set is going to be on the retiring list that’s due to be announced this month after Ann returns from the Stampin’ Up! convention. Do you have any guesses? This might be a good time to take a...

Spring Kids Birthday Card

Spring Kids Birthday Card

If you watched all of yesterday’s video, you might notice that Ann was talking about alternative pets. There was a lot more chatter about squirrels, chipmunks, hamsters and guinea pigs than Ann shared onscreen. There was so much that it inspired Ann to make a special card with a squirrel type character on it. (If you like it, I told her to do it.) Isn’t it cute? I do have to admit that I don’t know what kind of animal it is, but it’s still cute. Don’t you agree? We tried something new when we colored this guy. It’s got some really tiny places to color...

Happy Anniversary to My Humans!

Happy Anniversary to My Humans!

I can’t believe that my favorite huMAN and Ann have been together 37 years! WOW! That’s almost as old as I am if you convert my age to human years. So we had to make him a really nice card in his favorite color – blue. I think he’ll like it. I hope he will! You can get the Wonderful Romance stamp set until the end of the Occasions Seasonal Catalog which ends the same time as the Annual Catalog. They’ve sold out of the coordinating framelits so we’re thinking that this stamp set won’t return in the new catalog so if you like these greetings and...

Grapefruit Grove is Growing on Me

It was such a great day yesterday. We shared almost 20 swaps made with Sale-A-Bration items. And that’s not all! Ann shared some ideas with the new Stampin’ Up! Storage that’s going to be available for all of us on April 1st. You can watch the show on YouTube here. You’ll be able to see what’s coming up and how you can get it. That is, unless you want to wait until I bark about it here later. In the meantime, here’s a fun birthday card idea using the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper that is now back in stock. It’s so bright and springy that it will...
