My husband and I just returned from a vacation in Maine. It was absolutely wonderful! Maine was everything I had hoped for and more! I’ve never been there but I’m sure I will go back. It was so beautiful. And I ate so much good food – yes I had my first lobster roll, delicious! And blueberry pie and blueberry pancakes. I even brought home wild Maine blueberries and made a pie. I shared my pie (and the recipes for both my homemade pie crust and my blueberry pie filling) on my Facebook page.
And wildlife – we went on a Whale Watching Tour! Such magnificent creatures and it’s hard to fathom the sheer size of those whales! The famous Maine wildlife that we didn’t see were moose. But I did meet Lenny! And I want to introduce him to you now too!
Lenny is a 1700 lb. Chocolate Moose! Yes, he is solid milk chocolate! Now that’s my kind of wild life! But I wasn’t allowed to take a nibble of him 🙁 Isn’t he adorable?
Freshly Made Sketches Challenge
Lenny was the inspiration for my card. When I saw the sketch from the folks at Freshly Made Sketches, I just knew that sketch was made for the Moose from the new Merry Moose stamp set.
Here is the sketch:
And here is my card:
I also broke out my new Birch Background stamp and just used a neutral combination of Early Espresso and Crumb Cake for my layers and just a pop of red for the scarf. An easy card to make and the sketch was perfect. But after sleeping on it, I woke up with an idea to step up the card a bit so here is my second card:
For this card I used the Woodlands Embossing Folder for the background instead of the Birch Background stamp and I made the image panel larger. I stamped a few trees in Mossy Meadow ink and this time I stamped the moose and colored him using the Stampin’ Blends markers and cropped him out with the coordinating Moose Punch. The scarf was stamped in Real Red and fussy cut with my paper snips.
So which one do you like better? The simple card or the stepped up version? Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think.
If you like the Merry Moose stamp set and Moose punch, you’ll be able to purchase them as a bundle when the Holiday Catalog goes live on Sept. 5th!

Who doesn’t love Christmas? And who doesn’t love making Christmas cards? There are several really nice Christmas stamps and dies in the 2019-20 Annual Stampin’ UP! catalog for you to use right now! Who needs to wait until Christmas?
Last week, I made two Christmas cards for my Christmas in July stamp class. And I’m going to share one of those cards with you today.
Pretty Peacock sets the stage for all of the white elements in this card. It provides a great contrast for the various shades of white. We start with a Whisper White card stock base. The snowy hill was created from Shimmery White Cardstock, and the rolling hill was cut from the In The Woods die. There is a line of trees in the background that were stamped very lightly with white craft ink using the Winter Woods stamp set. The focal point, that gorgeous tree, was cropped from Whisper White cardstock and the In The Woods dies. A Bone Folder was used to fold up the boughs and create dimension. Then the entire tree was spritzed with Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with a little rubbing alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer. That tree was finished with a few Rhinestones. The sentiment was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink.
Let’s take a close-up look at that tree! Do you see the shimmer?
This card would be very easy to recreate. I am planning on making several of these and get a jump start on my Christmas cards now, because, let’s be honest, who has lots of extra time during the holidays? Better to get a head start now, right?

Chlnges are coming! Keeping up with design and manufacturing trends is something Stampin’ Up! has always done. This is what keeps them on the leading edge of style and design trends. An example of this is the Color Palette, specifically the InColors. In Colors are on trend colors introduced for a 2 year period. With each Annual Catalog (the beginning of June) 5 new colors are introduced, aptly named for 2 year period in which they will be available. And 5 colors are retired. As we prepare to say goodbye to the 2017-2019 InColors, please note all items in these colors will retire and are now only available while supplies last. Shop the retiring 2017-2019 In Colors here.
More changes to come have been announced regarding some of our tools.
The Stampin’ Trimmer is being retired when the current catalog ends. I have always felt that is one of the best, user-friendly trimmers on the market. You can order a Stampin’ Trimmer here before they retire, and don’t forget to order extra Trimmer blades too. There is a current quantity limit of THREE on blade packages (set of two per package). On April 15, the limit will be increased to SIX (set of two per package). A replacement trimmer or paper cutter will be released in the future (date to be determined).
Also being retired is the Big Shot die cutting & embossing machine, and all of it’s accessories. You can purchase a Die Cutting & Embossing Machine here now. A new die cutting and embossing machine will be introduced in the future (date to be determined) – I can’t wait to see what’s coming!
NEW DIES and EMBOSSING FOLDERS: We will still offer dies and embossing folders, but you’ll see some improvements to these items in the new 2019 Annual Catalog too. You can read all about the new dies and embossing folders here.
Several stamp sets will be retired as well to make room for new stamp sets. The Retired List will be posted next week. I will be heading to Atlantic City, NJ for the OnStage convention today and will be getting my 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Stay tuned to my Facebook page for sneak posts and posts from OnStage. I will also have giveaways for many of my posts so make sure you comment on my posts as well.
Talk to you soon! I’m sure there will be more changes coming that I’ll be telling you about!

Last week my husband started a new job, which is a total career change for him. I’m incredibly proud of my husband, I’m sure this isn’t easy! I made this card for him, using the Incredible Like You stamp set. The sentiment, “Incredibly Proud of You” was perfect to convey my feelings. Of course I had a little gift for him too, something for his new office.
The earthy elements and color scheme lend to the masculine feel. I choose a piece of DSP from the now retired Frosted Floral DSP pack and cropped a circle using the Layering Circles Framelit dies. A piece of woodgrain paper from the Wood Textures DSP was slipped behind this and adhered everything to a Tranquil Tide card base. Then I cropped a detailed circle from Tranquil Tide using the Doily Builder framelit dies. (Heads up: this item is projected to be sold out quite soon and will not be available again before the end of the catalog so grab yours now!) Tranquil Tide ink was used to stamp the sentiment that expressed my feelings exactly!
Next up I decorated around the framed circle. I cropped a leaf from the Winter Woods framelits dies in Old Olive cardstock and added a few wooden elements from the Butterfly Elements (this is already sold out – I’m glad I grabbed them as soon as they came out) and some metal Leaf Trinkets with Old Olive line thread.
And here he is….
Here’s a photo of the dinner I made to celebrate. Note the flowers (they were given to him by the guests at the Mission as a way of saying goodbye) and the gift I had for him.
See the look of joy on his face as he is reading my card:

Sometimes, I pleasantly surprise myself when I sit down to make a card, and that’ s what happened here. I saw the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches design team and immediately envisioned how I could turn that sketch into a card. I just used the Doily Builder Framelits together with the Butterfly Gala stamp set and Butterfly Duet Punch Bundle (you can see that card here) and I am totally in love with both bundles! So I knew I wanted to used those two bundles together again. What I didn’t know was what color palette I wanted. I’ll get to that in just a minute.
First, here is the sketch that inspired me:
I knew the Doily Builder Framelit die and butterfly would be perfect for the ‘any shape’ image and the “Hello Beautiful” sentiment was just begging to be used on the strip. And I’ve been wanting to challenge myself to use more vellum and that seemed to fit beautifully into the card I envisioned in my mind.
I pulled out my package of Botanical Butterfly DSP (a Level 1 Sale-A-Bration Reward). I knew that the butterfly images on this paper could be cropped perfectly with the Butterfly Duet Punch. What I didn’t know was how beautiful Grapefruit Grove looks when paired with Highland Heather! I seriously don’t think I ever would have put those two colors together. But a wise person once advised me, (and I’ll pass along that wisdom to you) that the artists employed by Stampin’ UP! are experts in color theory and design, as well as trend setters. Many times I’ll take my que from the color combinations in DSP patterns. And that’s just what I did here. I cropped out a butterfly from this sheet of DSP
When I studied the butterfly, I discovered the key colors were Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Black. So I decided to pull out cardstock in those colors.
And this is my final result!
I just love this card! I am totally in love with the color combination, and really how all the elements came together! I love the Butterfly Gala stamp that I used to create the background for my Highland Heather card base. I love that I actually used Vellum and it looks good; like it belongs there! I love the Grapefruit Grove Doily layered on top of the Basic Black and the Basic Black sentiment strip. I even love that the card is square (it’s 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″). And I love that I actually cut up my Botanical Butterfly DSP instead of hoarding it! #LoveItChopIt
I made this card with the ladies in my Stamp Club the other night (aka The Craft Cult) and it got rave reviews! It was a CASE from a project I saw on Pinterest with my own spin on it. Take a look:
A Whisper White card base provides lots of ‘white space’ to create the dramatic beauty of this white on white circle cropped from the Doily Builder Framelit dies. A 1/2″ strip of Balmy Blue card stock, stamped with the sentiment from Butterfly Gala stamp set is slipped under one side, and over the other of the white circle. A Butterfly from Butterfly Gala stamp set is added on top. The butterfly images in this stamp set are so cool – first of all, there are 2 sizes of butterflies. Each butterfly has several ‘line options’ to stamp the outline and details. Then there is a solid ‘top’ and ‘bottom’ wing image so you can stamp each part of the wing in a different color as I did here. The small and large image of each butterfly is 1 stamp, so with each impression you get 2 butterflies. Bundle this with the Butterfly Duet punch, (and save 10%) which punches out both the small and large butterflies simultaneously, and you’ll get impressive results with very little effort! Let’s take another look close – up:
Love this card? You can purchase any of the supplies I used to make this card right here. Don’t forget that with every $50 in purchases (before tax and shipping) earns you 1 Level 1 Sale-A-Bration reward. Every $100 in purchases (before tax and shipping) earns you 2 Level 1 Rewards, or 1 Level 2 reward. There is NO LIMIT to the amount of rewards you can earn with Sale-A-Bration!

I sat down to make a Sympathy card last night expecting to use the Level 2 Sale-A-Bration item “Lasting Lily” because, well, it has a beautiful lily image and several sentiments that are perfect for this occasion. However, I wound up using the sentiments but taking a totally different direction for the card. I do that sometimes (after all it is a woman’s prerogative to change her mind, isnt’ it?) Let’s take a look: The beautiful “Botanical Butterfly” DSP is a Level 1 Sale-A-Bration item (meaning you earn it for FREE with a qualifying $50 order). That paper is just so gorgeous! I find myself looking at it but not wanting to cut it up and use it. Does anyone else have that problem? The prettier the paper, the harder it is to cut it up. But in my head I know that it looks a lot better in a card that is going to brighten someone’s day when they open their mailbox than sitting on my shelf. #loveitchopit #makeacardsendacard
This card is headed for someone special, someone who I refer to as my Stampin’ UP! mom (she introduced me to Stampin’ UP! many years ago and set my life on a totally different trajectory! Boy, I’m so glad she did! – But that’s a story for another time). Her Mom passed away over the weekend. I definitely needed to chop up my gorgeous DSP to make a sympathy card for her!
This card is so beautiful because the DSP does all the heavy lifting! All I had to do was to stamp the sentiment, crop it with an oval framelit, layer it with a stitched oval, place it over a belly band that picks up the tiny black layer, and I was done! I did use a piece of copier paper on the inside and stamped a sentiment on that. TIP:Whenever I use a colored card base, I always add a plain white copier paper insert – it makes it easier to read & write on white than on color.
I was able to earn both the Botanical Butterfly DSP and the Lasting Lily stamp set at the same time. I try to make it a habit to never place an order less than $150. Why? First of all, shipping is a minimum of $6.95 up to an order of $69.95 (it becomes 10% of the order after that), AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, at $150 you earn Host Rewards EVEN IF THE ENTIRE ORDER IS YOURS (you don’t have to host a party or a workshop to earn those host rewards!) So if I placed a $150 order, I’d earn 10% in Host Rewards. If I placed 3 – $50 orders, I’d pay more in shipping and I wouldn’t earn any host rewards.
So, during Sale-A-Bration, you definitely want to place orders in $50 increments so you can earn FREE Sale-A-Bration items. But if you can, I suggest you place your order for a minimum of $150 to earn those host rewards too. (I often use those host rewards to stock up on adhesive or envelopes, and occasionally to indulge in a stamp set I might not otherwise order). If you really want to maximize your savings, place a $250 order. These BIG SPENDERS either order all for themselves, or gather a few orders from friends and family. At $250 you earn a $25 Host Reward Bonus so you’ll get $25 (10% of $250) and $25 for a total of $50 in Free Products, AND 5 -Level 1 Sale-A-Bration rewards!!
If you place an order with me during January that is $75 or more (before tax & shipping) and your order is less than $150, please using HOST CODE B3KMJJ23. If your order is $150 or more, please do not use this Host Code but rather take the Host Rewards for yourself. If you do place an OnlineOrder of $75 -$149.99 AND use the host code, OR place an order of $150 or more , I will send you the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots as my way of saying “thank you” for shopping with me.
Here’s the supply list for my card if you want to order these products to create this card for yourself.
Thanks friends, for stopping into My StampinSpace today!
Get Ready! Sale-A-Bration and the 2019 Occasions Catalog are coming your way….tomorrow!
Usually a new year brings new changes, or at least the desire for change. We want to change the things we don’t like, and add more of the things we do like and want in our lives. Well, if you like crafting, and in particular stamping, (and I know you do or you wouldn’t be reading my blog!), then the changes coming our tomorrow will bring more of what you love into your life in this new year. There are not one, but two new catalogs launching tomorrow, and I want to make sure you are up to speed on what is going on. Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog is live tomorrow (I’ll have the new catalogs posted right here on my blog on January 3rd -just look for the catalog icon to the right) – AND tomorrow is also the first day of Sale-a-Bration! To help you get ready for Sale-A-Bration, Stampin’ UP! biggest promotion of the year, here’s some friendly advice.
The Sale-A-Bration brochure contains a dozen exclusive products that you can’t buy anywhere, you can only get them FOR FREE during Sale-A-Bration. There are 3 ways to earn during Sale-A-Bration and I’ll detail them here.
During Sale-a-Bration, you can earn exclusive items from the Sale-a-Bration brochure when you make a qualifying purchase of Stampin’ Up! products from me from the Annual Catalog, the Occasions Catalog, the Clearance Rack or other Online items (like Prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscriptions). Like last year, Stampin’ Up! is offering two levels of Sale-a-Bration items this year:
Free with $50 Purchase. For every $50 you spend, you can select one Level One item to add to your order. Here are the items included in the Level One offering (you can click on any of these items to see the products in my online store):
Shopping is so easy. With so many things to buy, it’s easy to earn these amazing, free products!
If you think shopping is a fun, easy way to earn rewards during Sale-a-Bration, then you are going to love the second way – HOST. You can have some fun and host a party, or just share the catalog and gather orders, or email me to hold a Facebook Live Party. Because many of my customers are online and only purchase for themselves, then I like to describe this reward as HOST A PARTY FOR YOURSELF when you SHOP BIG and benefit.
When you place a Stampin’ Up! order for more than $250 between January 3 and March 31, you earn an additional $25 in Stampin’ Rewards. How incredible is that?! Here’s a look at the rewards structure:
Here’s how this works – if you place a $250 order, then you earn $25 (10% in Stampin’ Rewards) PLUS $25 in Sale-a-Bration rewards. That gives you $50 in Stampin’ Rewards to spend on anything you want from the current catalogs (including, but not limited to, price-reduced Host Stamps).
All orders over $450 earn a 50%-off item. If you place a $450 order, then you earn $63 (14% in Stampin’ Rewards) PLUS $25 in Sale-a-Bration rewards. That gives you $88 in Stampin’ Rewards to spend on anything you want from the current catalogs (including, but not limited to, exclusive Host Stamps) PLUS a half-off item from the catalog. Wowzers, right?
This is my FAVORITE way for you to save during Sale-a-Bration! Between January 3 and March 31, you have two options for buying Stampin’ Up!’s Starter Kit:
OPTION 1.Get $175 worth of Stampin’ Up! product (your choice) for just $99. That’s $50 more than the standard Starter Kit amount.
OPTION 2.Get $175 worth of Stampin’ Up! product (your choice) and the exclusive Craft & Carry Tote (valued at $50) for just $129. That’s $50 more than the standard Starter Kit amount AND a $20 savings on the tote. Here’s a video from Stampin’ Up! to show you how handy this amazing tote is:

One of my ‘go-to’ projects this time of year is a cute gift card holder. My design is quick and easy to make: you could knock a dozen or so in under an hour! Seriously. And it was designed so that you could maximize the yield from a sheet of cardstock and DSP with very little waste. BONUS! And if that weren’t enough, you could easily customize this for any occasion simply by changing out the color combination, DSP, and the design element/sentiment.
Click here for a FREE PDF Tutorial detailing how to make this gift card holder.
I was live on Facebook making this gift card holder if you’d rather see it in action. Go to my Facebook page and look for the live video.
Enjoy this project, and as always, leave me comment if you enjoyed this project.
I may be a little bit late to the Buffalo Check party, but I’ll be making up for lost time for sure! As soon as I saw the Buffalo Check background stamp in the 2018 Holiday Catalog, I knew I had to have it! But since I was pacing my budget with the trip to Orlando, FL for OnStage, I didn’t get it right away. My order arrived a few days before Thanksgiving but today was the first day I could actually ink that stamp up and use it. This is the first card I made with it:
I used Black Momento ink on Whisper White cardstock to stamp the Buffalo Check image. If you subscribe to my mailing list, you’ll be able to download my free report ““The 8 Essential Tools Every Paper Crafter MUST have to be Successful” . #2 is a clear flexible ruler. I used this ruler and my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write marker to draw lines between the checks to create more of a ‘plaid’ than Buffalo Check. I really love the way it turned out.
I used the Country Home stamp set to stamp the milk can and colored it using the Basic Gray Stampin’ Blends markers. I added hi-lights with the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter. (You can get this FREE from me; see below.) Then I cropped some pine needles from Old Olive cardstock, a berry spring in gold foil sheets, and leaves in Vellum. I stamped the candy canes in Cherry Cobbler ink and fussy cut them out. I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods stamp set onto a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut that out as well.
Every where I look, I see Buffalo Check patterns, from clothing to housewares, to Christmas decor. It’s so on trend. I love that Stampin’ Up! offers us products that are so trendy. I stamped several pieces of cardstock, in different colors, so I plan on making lots of cards with Buffalo Check backgrounds! Follow my Facebook page to see them all.
