Hello Spring!

Hello Spring!

Spring is all around us now in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia.  Southern springs are never boring, though, with snow showers this morning and a forecast high of 75 tomorrow!

So long to Sale-A-Bration 2019

This year’s Sale-A-Bration Items were just fantastic!  I’ve got just a couple of cards I’d like to share before we say our final farewells, though, to give you some ideas for how to use those fabulous Sale-A-Bration Items you earned!  The Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper was one of my absolute favorites.

Good news!!  The Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder will be returning in the new 2019-2010 Annual Catalog.  Yay!  Here’s a card I created using it with Vellum Cardstock, then coloring with Stampin’ Blends.

I created the frame using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (love!) on Coastal Cabana Cardstock.  The Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon was just the right finishing touch.

At a party last week, we made butterfly projects using the Country Floral Embossing Folder, the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper, and the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set on a Whisper White Note Card and a Mini Pizza Box.  The ladies had great fun making them!

FAREWELL TO THE 2017-2019 InColors

At our Crafting on the Hill April Team Meeting, we created three cards using the retiring 2017-2019 InColors Assortment. Stampin’ Up! has a great variety of punches that coordinate with lots of stamp sets, and we used several for this project. The daisy from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Berry Burst, then punched using the coordinating Daisy Punch.  We also used the Detailed Trio Punch, the Pretty Label Punch and the Leaf Punch. Shop for these retiring InColors before they’re gone!  Find all of these products on my online store at http://www.craftingonthehill.stampinup.net. 


So what are “Distinktive” Stamps and what makes them special?

  1. Distinktive stamps give you photo-realistic images with just one stamp. They have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step.
  2. These stamps are available only from Stampin’ Up! and are made using a patent-pending process.
  3. Distinktive stamps are available in red rubber and photopolymer; Paper Pumpkin’s April kit includes photopolymer stamps.
  4. Shop Distinktive stamps in my online store by searching “Distinktive,” or look for the Distinktive icon in Stampin’ Up! catalogs.
