Stop Card Hoarding Challenge

Hello crafty peeps!
I recently discovered a big problem that all paper crafters seem to have. Take the following quiz and see if you are afflicted by card hoarding!
If you answered yes to at least three out of five, you are a card hoarder!

Stop the Cycle

Throughout April, I posted cards that I have sent or hand-delivered on my Facebook page, Wallflower Greetings. Here is one of them that I mailed this past Monday. The butterflies are from the Beauty Abounds stamp set from the Occasions catalog. The designer series paper is Gingham Gala, one of my faves that is retiring. I used the Daffodil Delight check pattern.

Take the Challenge

If you are a card hoarder, then take my challenge. Mail or hand-deliver at least one card a week. There are many people just waiting to receive a handmade card from you. Take a picture of your card and post it to my Facebook page, Wallflower Greetings. with #StopCardHoarding. Lets see how many you can send over the summer. The person who sends the most will win $20 in FREE merchandise of their choice!! Get to mailin’!

Last Chance List

Speaking of the retiring items! Don’t forget to get your faves before they are gone!! Accessories are while supplies last! Stamps are guaranteed until MAY 24 only, and then they will also be while supplies last. Depending on inventory levels, discounts on select products may be introduced on or after May 9. This is a great time to get your hands on some faves before they are gone. It is an exciting time because the new annual catalog comes out in June!!! See below for retiring product lists and how to order.
NOTE! Items will sell out quickly, so I do recommend ordering online so you will know immediately if your item is available, plus you won’t have to wait on me to finalize the order allowing time for a sell out!
The list is big and scary, but that just means all the more room for NEW exciting products!
Reminder: we will not sell the Big Shot in the new catalog, but we WILL carry dies and embossing folders that will work in the Big Shot. We will eventually be coming out with a new die cutting machine.
Reminder: we are discontinuing the Paper Trimmer due to issues. Stampin’ Up! hopes to have 6 months worth of trimmer blades available to purchase. They will be available off and on during this period (when we sell out they will be unavailable until we get more in).

Host Code for Online Orders

Don’t forget – use Host Code VB9KK76J when ordering online to receive my monthly ordering special (min $25).
Happy stamping,

April 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Spring Color Challenge

Welcome to the Kre8tors Blog Hop. As usual, I am excited to be a part of this creative group of demonstrators! Our theme for this month is “Spring Color Challenge”.

This beautiful picture is the inspiration for this month’s challenge.

55730990_10205726523238666_4906446140733390848_o

For the challenge, we were to use at least 3 of the following colors from the picture. The colors are:

Granny Apple Green
Daffodils Delight
Mango Melody
Highland Heather
Gray Granite

My Project

I decided to use Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather. I really love these colors! I made two variations of this card for the hop. I love how both of them turned out. The stamp set is one of my favorites from the occasions catalog called All that You Are. I stamped the large flower in stazon on whisper white card stock. Using wink of Stella I watercolored the flower in Daffodil Delight, the leaves in Granny Apple Green and the small flowers in Gorgeous Grape. I took a close-up of the flower and hopefully you can see the shine and sparkle from the wink of Stella. The watercolor panel was then glued to a piece of highland Heather card stock. Both panels were cut using the rectangle framlits from the occasion‘s catalog. For the card base, I used thick whisper white and covered the entire front with the Gingham Gala DSP in Highland Heather with the small checks facing up. Then, I adhered the flower panel at an angle to the card with dimensionals. The Happy birthday was stamped in Granny Apple green and cut out using the 1 3/8 circle punch I sponged around the edge of the circle in Granny Apple Green as well. The Happy birthday was attached to the top left corner. The large butterfly is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. I punched it out with the matching butterfly duets punch, and colored it in wink of Stella using Daffidil Delight and Granny Apple Green ink. It was adhered to the bottom right corner with a dimensionals.

For my next project, Imdid something similar but this time I Stamped the flower with Stazon on Highland Heather cardstock. I used a chalk marker to define the lines in some of the areas. I colored the leaves with green, the buds in yellow and added a touch id Gorgeous Grape to the small flowers. I added Wink of Stella to all the images. I love how it soaked into the paper and darkened the large flower! I layered this panel on a piece of Highland Highland Heather embossed with the country floral embossing folder.

Sale-a-brate the Occasion in 2019

Hello crafty peeps!

The Occasions catalog is here! It is chock full of new products and ideas just in time for many of the events and holidays that happen around this time of year. In fact, did you know that Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day hold the title for the highest number of store bought greeting cards? It’s true! My question is why buy a mass-produced card that can be quite pricey when you can make your own personal cards and gifts to give to others? It is more meaningful, because it is handmade from you! In addition to all the great new products to choose from, they coordinate wonderfully with items from the current annual catalog as well. Then, it gets even better because you can earn FREE items from the Sale-a-bration brochure. Stampin’ Up goes all out January through March. You can earn a LOT of free stuff during this time of year. 

Check out all the fun videos below and then be sure to attend my catalog tours and Facebook Live Events.
