Hey Stampers…although we can’t see the ground yet, the calendar is never wrong!!! In anticipation of warmer days, green grass, daffodils, tulips and spring graduation we have worked on the stamping room for the next buffet to make it more user friendly.
MARCH 12TH PHOTO GALLERY – Couldn’t resist sending these great photos (thanks Borgie) of some of the stampers at the last buffet. There was a fun IRISH Creative Corner to make your own individualize card…..
NEW COUNTRY FLORAL DYNAMIC EMBOSSING FOLDER: GET IT FREE WITH $50 ORDER by MARCH 31ST!!! this was THE favorite in Gorgeous Grape with a hint of Wink of Stella! A table of choices from note cards, colored card stock or create your own Pink Petal with a brayer rolled onto the embossing folder. If you missed it last month it will be back in April – with a new look! Register here if you’re interested.
MORE BUTTERFLIES: Our busy stampers from the March class have sent out a bunch of butterflies…and don’t seem to be tired of making them…
…so there will be more on the April buffet as well as cards for Easter, mothers, a fisherman’s special, a mechanic’s dream, spring birthdays graduation, and more.
HOME TO ROOST: another FREE Stamp set with a $50 order…this masked note card was a big hit – thanks to Shannon West from the home office. Three steps, a box of watercolors and a blender pen made it all possible. Everyone loved Mr. Rooster…a sweet and attractive “JUST A NOTE” card.
Here’s an Easter Preview beginning with Bowman’s best Goose”

Good things come to those who wait. (We really had no choice but to wait here in Wisconsin, did we?) Ironically, this sentiment could be applied to other areas in our life right now too… I’ve heard it said, “God is never late, but He’s rarely early.” His timing is perfect, we remind ourselves. And the lilacs are right on time…they are bursting open all over this town. The sight and scent of lilacs remind me that summer is on its way…
I am excited about the card I found to CASE from the Artisan group at Stampin’Up. It is perfect for making a symmetrical design using the new STAMPARATUS tool which will be available for purchase on June 1st. Wanna learn how to do it? check my Facebook page for the video or come to the next Buffet Class on June 12th…sign up NOW so I’m ready for you!
SUPPLIES FOR LILAC CARD:(Some supplies and tools are not listed as they are in the new catalog which will not be available until June 1st! ) I have also listed the bundles for this card that are available NOW and until May 31st . find the supplies on page 177 and check out the bundles on my Stampin Up website page.
What a great technique we learned at the last buffet – no two are alike! Here is one for a masculine card and perfect for those Rustic Road Travelers on a bike! Use it for birthdays, Father’s Day and more. Of course, I love the vintage look of crumb cake and have played with several designs to use at the next buffet. We will also use the burlap background stamp and/or some burlap cardstock hidden away in my paper stash! Remember to sign up and come get your new catalog!
Enjoy this beautiful Wednesday and the smell of the lilacs!
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stay InKy!
SPRING HAS FINALLY SPRUNG HERE IN WISCONSIN!!! I am torn between stamping and gardening today….just have too much going on – maybe a little of each since we went a little crazy at the garden center yesterday.
WHAT’S SO BIG ABOUT MAY DAY??
Well…lots of things…
Spring is finally here
Forsythia and crocus are already in bloom
1st day to pre-order the new 2018 Love What You DOSuite in a variety of packages
I loved making this card and it is a putsy one. I will be happy to have it ready for you at the May 8th class but ONLY for those who register and respond that you want to make it. It will ONLY be available for everyone who orders it since the preparation is very time consuming. I must have your response by Wednesday May 4th.
We are one day away from you being able to order from the new catalog.
you ever think about finding fresh ways to introduce papercrafting to your friends, neighbors, and coworkers? You might even be wondering how to reach out to people who feel like they’re too busy for creativity. We have a solution, and it comes in a pretty, red box.
We call it Paper Pumpkin, and it’s a monthly subscription service which delivers pre-designed, precut papercrafting projects straight to your doorstep. And it’s the perfect time to encourage everyone you know to subscribe. Right now . . .
New subscribers get 50% off their first two months
If you’re a first-time subscriber, you’ll also get a discount. After all, the best way to get excited about Paper Pumpkin (including sharing your fun creations and talking with other Paper Pumpkin enthusiasts online) is to sign up yourself.
Find out more about our 50% off offer at Stampin’ Up’s promotion page.
I had a paper pumpkin date with Meera last week and at the age of 8 she was able to read the directions, follow the instructions on the utube channel and make 4 teacher appreciation cards with Sara’s special box from last year. So Meera passed the test and I signed her up to receive Paper Pumpkin. Not only to have fun making the projects but it is a great reinforcer for reading, following directions, staying on task, learning how to access instructions on line and more. If yo have children or grand children who love art, this is a great gift – and it’s 50% off for the next 2 months – must order by May 10th!!
Come play with GOLD at the April 10th BUFFET – be sure to RSVP HERE !!!
