Adorable Note Cards

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

I think Summer might actually be on its way.

I have a couple of things to tell you today.  May 31 is the last day for you to order from the current regular catalog and the Occasions mini catalog.  Please don’t miss out on something that you’re wanting from either of those catalogs.  Once they’re gone, they are gone for good.

The second thing that I want to tell you about is something that’s been in our catalog for several years.  I’ve only used them a little bit in the past, but I’m now in love with them.  They are the Whisper White Note Cards shown on page 195 of the new catalog.  There are 20 cards & envelopes in a package for $6.  And, Very Vanilla Note Cards are also available in the new catalog.  (The white ones are still available in the current catalog.)  Each card is 5” x 3 ½”.

I’ve been making lots of them as thank you notes using the Delightful Daisy designer paper on page 188 of the new catalog.  I’ll include pictures of some of the ones I’ve made, but I want to give you the measurements.  As mentioned above, the cards are already cut and scored for you.  The solid piece of card stock is 4 ¾” x 3 1/4”; the designer paper is 4 ½” x 3”.

For the envelope flap, I cut the designer paper 6” x 2”.  I then put quite a bit of snail on the envelope flap (outside) and a tiny strip of snail in the middle of the back of the designer paper and attach the two.  Then I just trim around it.  They are so cute.

If you place an order before the end of May, please use this hostess code:  2G3HBFMW    SHOP NOW     I’ll  start another hostess code for June.

If your order is $150 0r more, please don’t use the host code so that you can collect the host rewards for yourself.

Here are pictures of some of the note cards I’ve made.

 

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs to each of you, Pat

Fresh Fruit Peach Card

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

Before I show you today’s card, I want to be sure that you can see how to navigate this site.

There’s a narrow bar (reddish or purplish) under the picture of the card spread.  It’s fairly narrow and kind of hard to see as it’s fairly small.  (Jim has tried to change the bar, but hasn’t been successful yet.)  Anyway, when you move your cursor across that bar, you’ll see the different things you can click on.

If you want to be notified whenever I create a new post, you can fill in your email address in a box on the right side.

Okay now for today’s card.  I love this card, set, and designer paper.  When I first saw the set, I wasn’t really interested, but now I love it.  The set and designer paper are retiring, but they’re still available at the moment.

If you place an online order using the host code:   2G3HBFMW    SHOP NOW       This 18% offer ends today, May 12.

The peach card is one of my favorites from all of the cards that I’ve made and /or demonstrated in all of my 18 years as a demonstrator.

Best Birds Card

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

May 5 was my 18th anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  It has been SO much fun.  I’ve met wonderful people, traveled the world, and made some extra money. 

In honor of this anniversary, I’ll give you an 18% discount on any one item on an online order when you use the hostess code.  That means that I’ll mail you a check for the 18%.  To place an order visit www.stampinlady.com or click on this link and use this hostess code:   2G3HBFMW    SHOP NOW  

This offer is good for 5 days and will end on Friday, May 12.  It cannot be combined with any other offers that I’ve put out.  It’s a fun way for me to celebrate my anniversary and give all of you a big thank you for your support.  Thank you so much!!!!

I want to share this beautiful bird card with you.  We made it at a recent event and everybody loved it.

As I’ve said before, I have very little talent, but I’m very good at copying.  So, probably most of this card is CASEd.  (That stands for Copy & Share Everything.)

It’s classy and pretty easy.  It does have a little coloring, but other than that, it’s very easy.

 

BEST BIRDS CARD

Best Birds Bundle, p. 53, #142315, $43

Crumb Cake card stock, p. 170, #120953, $8 or assortment, #131191, $8

     8 ½” x 5 ½”

Calypso Coral card stock, p. 171, #122925, $8 or assortment, #131193, $8

     5” x 3 ¾”

     Scrap

Whisper White card stock, p. 170, #100730, $9 or assortment, #131191, $8

     4 ¾” x 3 ½”

     5” x 3 ¾”

     5 ½” x 4 ¼” (inside)

Chocolate Chip pad, p. 170, #126979, $6.50 or assortment, #140933, $32.50 (6 pads)

Calypso Coral pad, p. 171, #126983, $6.50 or assortment, #131185, $54.50 (10 pads)

Soft Suede pad, p. 170, #126978, $6.50 or assortment, #140933, $32.50, (6 pads)

Watercolor Pencils, Occasions, p. 24, #141709, $16 (13 pencils)

Blender Pens, p. 180, #102845, $10 (3 blender pens)

Diamonds (retired but coming back reconfigured in the new catalog, available June 1)

Dimensionals, p.182, #104430, $4

Big Shot for cutting out the Buds & Blooms framelits—part of bundle above

Big Shot, p.190, 143263, $110

The background was stamped with Soft Suede to keep it fairly light.  You could probably use the Chocolate Chip pad and stamp off.  The bird and branch are stamped with the Chocolate Chip pad and then colored with the colored pencils.  Then it’s carefully blended with the blender pens.

The reason I say carefully is that Chocolate Chip ink is not a permanent ink and it could smear.  The permanent colors are Archival Basic Gray & Archival Basic Black.  They just didn’t seem to fit the bill this time.

The only other thing that’s a bit different is on the leaves.  We first colored them with the Old Olive colored pencil and then went over it with the Cucumber Crush marker.

I hope you enjoy this card; it’s a fun card and made with a bundle that I hadn’t used.  The stamp set & framelits are coming back in the new catalog, but they aren’t bundled so you lose out on that 10% discount.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I love to talk stamping.

Hugs to each of you, Pat
