December Rewards Cards

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

Here are the directions and supplies used in the card packets that you earned for your $50+ orders during December.

You only have two days left to order from the June-December mini catalog.  Don’t miss out on the items that you really want.  Several items are already sold out—you’ll know when you try to put an item in your cart—a note pops up that says it’s sold out.  January is the last day to order from this catalog.

If you’d like to place an order, please use my host code:  2UAF7JD7.  If you’re placing a club order or if your order is over $150 and not a club order, don’t use my host code so that you can claim the host rewards for yourself.

Sale-a-Bration and the new January-June mini catalog both go live on Tuesday, January 4th.  You probably recall that during Sale-a-Bration, you get choose a FREE gift from the SAB brochure for every $50 that you place in orders (before tax & shipping).   There are also two gifts that are available at the $100-order level.  Sale-a-Bration is our best, and most popular, sale of the year.

This year’s SAB joining offer is that for $99, you get to choose $125 in merchandise from the current catalogs and any two additional stamp sets.  Plus, place a party or individual order of at least $300, and receive the Calming Camellia stamp set FREE.

Our monthly stamp club needs a few members.  The commitment is only $12.50 per month and you get to be the host (in person or virtually) once during the 12 month period.  I’d love to have you join us.

Please let me know if you have questions or if I can help in any way:  303-888-1862—call or text.

Wild Cats Picture This Card


Original by Akiko Sudano


The designer paper for this card is cut from three different sheets of the In the Wild dsp.  We cut it by taking the rectangular cut outs from the Picture This die and drew rectangles on the dsp, making them a bit larger than the cut out and then taped them onto the back of the embossed Soft Succulent card stock.

The greeting piece is attached with dimensionals, and the bow is attached with glue dots after cutting the linen thread in half and tying the bow with two strands of linen thread.

Add the Evening Evergreen plants and then the square gems.
