Ornate Garden Suite!

Happy April all. Dropping temps here and chance of rain turning to snow. Sounds like Spring in Nebraska!

Stampin' Up! has released a Suite from the next annual catalog early! Yes, I said full Suite! Introducing Ornate Garden!


Two stamp sets, two die sets, DSP, a ribbon pack, Gilded Gems and a 3D Embossing Folder. All available individually, in two bundles (stamp and die combo) or one big collection! Click the pictures to enlarge. Ask me if you want the official flyer, I can email it to you!







I think the DSP looks to pretty to cut! But I'm excited to play with it all. Love this one!! and yes, I already have it - Demo perk! I am way overdue to spend time in the stamp room, so maybe this afternoon or evening!!

Happy Sunday!

Good Morning all! Just a quick check in and reminder to go with the end of March!

Hope you are all well and hanging in there! No stamping here, just too much other "stuff" going on. My (part time) day job is in Financial Services so with the market craziness along with Covid19 it has truly been crazy days! And the taxes I keep saying I need to work on are getting done and man are they UGLY!! Other than that we are good. Out here in the country we are naturally socially distanced so it isn't all that unusual!

Today, the sun is shining and it is supposed to be VERY nice outside today. Hopefully light or no wind. Planning to get out this afternoon just because I can :)

Ok, on to Stampin' Up! A quick reminder that the end of March brings the end of Sale-A-Bration. Three days left to get FREE items!! You have 3 different brochures, and as far as I know only 3 things have sold out.

**also note, I have left the Host code open through tomorrow, Monday the 30th at 3 pm CT. Use it if ordering less than $150 for a chance to win the Hostess $$**




Your choices:

SAB flyer one



SAB flyer two



Catalog items. Click to enlarge, and *make sure to use the item numbers here*


The three items that have sold out are the Metallic Baker's Twine and Sequins Combo, Kerchief Card Kit and Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The Coordination Products also end with March. Six items here, click to enlarge. The Birthday dies are discontinued but I believe all the other items are still available.




The Mini Catalog and Annual Catalog both continue until June 2! Links in the right side bar! Let me know if you have any questions!!

Last Dandelions!

For now anyway, the last Dandelion cards! I see more in my future!! Hope your weekend is going well. Pretty quiet here, and getting more so as college boy just left. No in person anything for him at school, but online class things to work on and his books aren't here!


The sets again are Dandelion Wishes, Beauty Abounds and Peaceful Moments. These two are the same colors, just reversed. Petal Pink, Rococo Rose and Soft Suede on Very Vanilla. This one the card base is Petal, accent layer of Soft Suede. Rhinestone in the center.


This one is Rococo Rose card base, Soft Suede accent layer.

Thanks for stopping by, please ask if you have any questions or if I can help with anything! Hope you are all getting time to craft! Sure helps the mood and time go by! I've gotten some taxes done and we have leftovers for the next two days so I'm very hopeful for stamping time! The recent Paper Pumpkin is partially done on my desk and I'll be browsing challenges for inspiration after lunch! Product details and shopping links below. Stay safe all!

More Dandelion Thanks!

Hey, all. Happy weekend. Realize it may be a weird one with all that is going on. My husband is a news watcher, I am not. Even he said it was all negative stuff this morning! My vote, turn it off! Much prefer some music or nothing in the background! Enough gloom, here's some happy! More Dandelion cards! I sent these as thank you notes this week. 3 here, two more coming.


Same sets as the previous cards, Dandelion Wishes, Beauty Abounds and the Thank You from Peaceful Moments. Colors for this one are Mango Melody, Pool Party and Basic Gray on Whisper White. I'm trying to use more basic Whisper White and Very Vanilla. Seems I reach for Shimmery White most of the time! These all have just the one rhinestone in the center of the flower.


Pineapple Punch, Coastal Cabana, and Basic Gray on Very Vanilla. Not always a fan of yellow but this one is very bright and cheery.


Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Basic Gray on Very Vanilla. Thanks for stopping by today! Hoping to get back to the stamp room but it may not be today. Taxes are my priority today, I know - yuck! But gotta get them at least figured. We'll see if we file or not with the recently announced extension. Product details and shopping links below.

Dandelion Birthday!

Be prepared, bombardment coming at you! Love these Dandelion Wishes cards and so many options for colors and sayings!! Here are a couple Birthday ones I did to add to the stash!!


You all know purple is my thing right? All shades?? And, when I find a card layout I like, I keep doing it!! So, above is Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Lemon Lime Twist. Somewhere I had saved a color challenge that was lime green, lavender and gray. Flowers and saying are Smoky Slate. Sorry I keep going back to Lemon Lime Twist, but I proved the other day that Granny Apple Green is VERY close. Get that one!! :) Same as the green Smile card, I angled the "dots" from Beauty Abounds across the card, larger circle in Heather, smaller in Lemon Lime, on Whisper White. Flower, floaters and saying in Smoky Slate. Sequin accents in Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist. Card base is Highland Heather, accent layer of Smoky Slate.



And secondly, is this not pretty? Do not compare to above. This seems pale at first sight, but is very pretty in real life. Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam on Whisper White with a Smoky Slate accent layer on a Purple Posy card base. Note: the Purple Posy ink pad was permanently discontinued after the ink repeatedly failed tests by Stampin' Up!. I can't see that mine has a variance, but apparently that happens over time. The regular marker is available, as well as Stampin' Blends if you can't live without this color!! Accent sequins in Pearl and Soft Sea Foam.

Thanks for stopping by today! May be a few days before I post any more. There are more in this layout, but most are Thank You cards that went in the mail today. Will likely give them a few days to arrive before I share! We'll see what future creativity looks like after work today and an off day Thursday. Adjusting to life with college boy in the house, and maybe older son incoming as well. So out of the habit of a full house, but not hating it :) Product details and shopping links below.
