Hello Sale-A-Bration & the New Mini Catalog!
Meadow Dies Birthday

Delivering Cheer

It is Thursday which means it is time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week it is a color challenge.


I have been playing with the Delivering Cheer stamp set from the new 2021 July-December Mini Catalog.  I think the set is cute and versatile and wanted to use it to make a birthday card.


I stamped the skirt on the Petal Pink paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Assortment and did some paper piecing.  I colored the presents using Stampin' Blends in the challenge colors.   A little Soft Succulent sparkle from the 2021-23 In Color Jewels was added to a few of the presents.  I tied a tiny bow using the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon.


The Soft Succulent CS layer was embossed using the Pretty Flowers Embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the Days to Remember stamp set.  

So do you think I was able to use this set and avoid it looking like a Christmas  or a holiday card.? I hope so.   Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for this challenge.



August 2021 Stamp of the Month Projects… To Go!

This month the stamp of the month is Penguin Place (pg 33 of the Mini Catalog). The To Go projects use both the Penguin Place stamp set and the Penguin Builder punch aka Penguin Place bundle (156789).  Having the Penguin Builder punch will make it easier to complete the projects. What comes in your To Go kit?  All the paper,  DSP, embellishments and a link to the tutorials to make your 4 projects (3 cards and a 3-D Treat Box). The Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad  (132708), Just Jade pad (153115), Calypso Coral pad (122925) are used on the projects. Inks and adhesive are not included with the To Go projects. 

To register all you need to do is place an order for $40 (before shipping and tax) and use  the Host Code QCHS4QTM on my online store   on or before the 15th of the month.  Your projects will be mailed  to you on or before the 22nd of the month.  The Host Code is how I will know you want the Stamp of the Month Projects to go. You will need the stamp set to complete the projects.  The punch is optional but be prepared to do some fussy cutting if you do not order the punch.  I would also recommend adding $10 more to your order so you will also qualify for a FREE Sale-A-Bration choice.  Penguin Playmates 12” x 12” DSP- FREE with a $50 order (158420) coordinates with the Penguin Place bundle and is simply adorable.
