Enjoy The Moment.....Three to Inspire You....And a Video Tutorial....


Hey, Hey, Hey Stampers!  

Today I have three cards of my own to share with you made with the oh so fabulous Enjoy The Moment stamp set found on page 59 of the J2J Mini Catalog.  As well as three more cards made by Stampin' Up! artists! 

As an added bonus I also have a video tutorial for you showing how I made the three cards! 

Here are my cards: 

This one is my personal favorite of the three.....I love the collage background with the neutrals and the pop of gold in the ribbon. 

Next is I used the images to create my own dsp in blue and orange tones. 

And my final card I stamped the card base for added interest, used the collage background idea again with a different focal image, and linen thread this time. 

Here are the three cards designed by Stampin' Up! artists,  and an image of the stamp set:

And finally here is my video tutorial:

One of our values at Stampin’ Up! is to Better Our Best, which means that from time to time we review our processes and procedures. Through some analysis, we’ve identified some manufacturing improvements we could make to our photopolymer stamps process.

With our new process, we will now include an extended insert in the case, with the stamp images printed on the front (as usual) and on the back. That means as you open your stamp case you’ll be able to see the stamp images on both sides of your case. The photopolymer stamp sets will no longer include the printed acetate sheet; instead, the stamps will come between two clear sheets. You and your customers will be able to stick the stamps directly to the case over the images on the insert.

This change will not impact Paper Pumpkin stamps and photopolymer stamps that come with all-inclusive kits. Because these stamps don’t have a case, we will continue to offer the printed sheet so you and your customers know which stamps are in the set.

Our photopolymer stamps will still function the same and are still made with our high-quality see-through photopolymer material. The benefit of this change is that it will help us increase the number of photopolymer stamps we can produce, which helps us meet our supply needs quicker.


Our North American distribution center is currently shipping a few days behind our normal time frames. 

Weekly Orders

As usual, I have class orders going in each Wednesday.  Please contact me no later than 8 am on Wednesday if you wish to order.

Wednesday, March 10, 2021.....Around The World On Wednesday Blog Hop......3D Projects.....



Today, I am once again hopping around the world with a super talented bunch of stampers!  And today.....we are exploring the world of 3D items!

This challenge was a hard one for me!  I rarely do 3D projects anymore.  I guess Angie was pushing us to step outside our comfort zone this month....LOL! 

As I was struggling for an idea, I spied my new butterfly bundle.....and then the idea was born....YAY!

Here is what I came up with:

Nothing says spring to me more than birds and flowers and bees and butterflies!  

So I made four of these super cute little treat boxes with butterflies and ribbons to decorate them!  

Which color is your favorite?  Mine is the yellow one (that even surprised me!)

These were super easy to make with the oh so simple mini curvy keepsakes box die.  Simply one pass through the die cutter and fold together and decorate!  

Ok that is it for me today.....but wait!!!  Click the NEXT BUTTON  or  links below and hop around the world and check out all the other 3D projects:

Hey, Hey, Hey Stampers!  

I am popping on here today to share a set of cards featuring the splotch background technique.  

I did a free online class on this last week and I got loads of positive feedback! 

Here are the four cards I made: 

Each of these cards is made from a piece of 6x6 DSP which gives you enough dsp for the card front, the envelope flap, and to embellish the inside panel too! 

Here is one of the completed cardsets:
