Celebrate Sunflowers Note Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you little sneak peek of some upcoming products with a note card that I Made using the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, from the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Here is a look at my project for today.

Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set: 

The Celebrate Sunflower (New in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog: will allow you to honor and celebrate friendships with heartfelt sentiments and a stunning set of sunflower images.  The stamp set features wonderful line art sunflowers and leaves that are perfect to color with your favorite coloring media.   The large sunflower image is great for a card front as well as elements on your cards.  I featured it today on my note card.

This is a cling mount stamp set so it will stay in place on your block no matter what you are using it for.  There are eight stamps in the set four of which are line art images.  You have the large sunflower, which is one of my favorites, a smaller sunflower image with leaves attached, and two sets of different size leaves.  Along with some great mixed font sentiments.  The deeply etched images will give you excellent detail as you can see with my little note card today.

Note Cards Perfect for Any Reason: 

I used the large sunflower to stamp all over my note card in Daffodil Delight Classic Ink.  I stamped it in a triangular pattern to add visual interest to the note card.  I then added the large leaf image stamped in Old Olive Classic Ink to fill in some of the white space on the note card.  This is a perfect example of some simple stamping.  Anyone could create this not card, from beginning crafters to someone that has been doing it for years that just needs to make a bunch of cards quick.

I love to make note cards for some occasions because they are the perfect size to be tucked into someone’s lunch, bag, or anywhere.  Plus, they come in a pack of 20 with envelopes so you have plenty to work with.  Another great thing about them is they are ready for you to make and send, no cutting needed if you do not want to add any additional layers.  I only added one additional layer to my note card today.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock after stamping the sunflower image on it.  First, I stamped the sunflower off before stamping on the 1 1/16th x 2 ¾” piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive Classic Ink and cut a fishtail banner on one end.  I added it to the note card with a couple Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off my note card I did stamp the large sunflower on the front of the envelope to have a matching presentation to the recipient.  I also stamped it on one corner of the flap.

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a little sneak peek at the new products I recently got as part of my Product Purchase Premier and my Product Preorder.  The Product Purchase Premier is one of the perks that demonstrators that attend OnStage get for attending.  We get the get catalog and are able to order select new products a full two months before it goes live to the general public.  Then you add in the Product Preorder; which is another perk for demonstrators.  All demonstrators get to order a select items a month before a catalog goes live.  So, if you add that up since I went to OnStage and get to preorder I have to opportunity to order a good chuck of new products before anyone else.  Here's a little walk through of all the products I recently received from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. 

Product Purchase Premier:

The new In Colors this year are Terracotta Tile, Purple Posy, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray, and Rococo Rose.  These have a trendy, boho chic, vintage feel.  

Preorder UnBoxing: 

On Friday I got my second little box of products from the 2019 Annual Catalog.  This was a smaller order then the one from OnStage.  
You can see the third video here.  
Now since I have gotten these few new products I have started designing samples, and classes for the coming months.  If you would like to get you hands on products from the new 2019 Annual Catalog there's a super simple why you can get them early as well.  All you have to do is join my team and you can add these new products to your $99 starter kit.  For the $99 you can pick $125 in products with free shipping.

Follow Your Art Suite Day 7 OnStage Sneak Peek Week


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a really fun card that we made last weekend at OnStage Charlotte using the Follow Your Art Suite in the upcoming 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  This catalog will release to customers in June.  I just wanted to share with you a little sneak peek at the make & takes that we made during the week. 
This suite of products where designed with crafters in mind.  You have such fun images both in the stamp set and the designer series paper.  We used both on this make and take.  We will take a little closer look at some of the products a little further down in this post. 

In the stamp set you have this wonderful stack of ribbon that has this wonderful ribbon heart coming off one spool.  This is such a great image to show how much you love crafting.   The images also have a lot of different craft tools in it that you create customized cards for any crafter.  The image below will give you a little look at what's in the suite.  There are some fun products inside.  
You can see how using these products can lead to creating a wonderful card.  Or if you wanted to create a bunch of cards you could use the embellishment kit along with a set of note cards and stamp the sentiment and use the embellishments alone on the cards.  Place them back in the box and you have a great gift to give.  But that's a post for another time; I guess we need to be talking about the make & take I did right.  
You all know if you follow me that I do love stamping the background of the card base sometimes and when we did this at OnStage it just made my heart sing.  I can't wait to play with this suite a little more.  Remember that these products I've been showing you this week are not available yet.  As a customer you want be able to get them until June; but if you join my Kinsmon Crafter Family you can preorder select products in May from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  If you are interested in doing so you can contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions or you can simply click here on the FAQ page on my website.  
Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a Happy Easter Holiday and I hope that you have enjoyed my little sneak peek of the make & takes we made at OnStage over the last weekend.

Come Sail Away OnStage Make & Take Sneak Peek Week Day 6


Hello and welcome to my blog;  If you haven't been watching I've been sharing all week the make & takes and sneak peeks from the new 2019 Stampin Up! Annual catalog that I made at OnStage over the past weekend from Onstage Charlotte.  Today, I am going to share the make and take for the Come Sail Away Suite in the new catalog, but before I do let me just say that these items will not be available till June. 
This fun little note card maybe small in size but delivers big impact.  The background is a mix of both designer series paper, watercolor panel, and stamped images. 
The multiple layers on this little note card are what gives a huge impact!  You have watercoloring, designer series paper, fuzzy cutting, embellishments, stamped images all on this little card that can be mailed.  Here's a look at the suite.
There are pretty much everything in this suite of products, I mean you have wonderful designer series paper, pretty embellishments, baker's twine, Stamp set, and matching dies as well as a new embossing folder.  This was one of the suites that was a must have for me because of the stamp set and the designer series paper.  You can take it masculine to feminine just by what you decide to use. 
Just remember that these products are not available until June 2, to customers, but demonstrators can get things earlier like a month before it goes live.  So if you want to have these products before hand you can totally get them by joining my stamping family.  Being able to order new products before anyone else is a great perk to being a demonstrator plus you get a 20% discount on future orders and the possibility of taking that to 25%.  So if you are interested you can read more about being a demonstrator by clicking here.   The big thing to know about being a demonstrator is to think of it like a Costco or Sam's Club membership with one except.  The exception is instead of only getting a god awful little photo ID worse than your driver licence photo can be; but you get products at a discount which is way better than just the photo id. 
Thanks for dropping by today, for another OnStage Sneak Peak, I have one more for you tomorrow, but I will have a simple stamping post for you later today.

Perennial Essence Suite OnStage Sneak Peek Week Day 5

Hello and welcome to my blog for day five of my OnStage Sneak Peek week.  This week I have been sharing with you little sneak peeks of products and samples that we got to see and make last weekend while I was attending the Local OnStage in Charlotte North Carolina.  So today I am going to share with you probably one of my favorite suites in the new catalog.  I am going to share with you the card we made using the products from the Perennial Essence Suite.  Here's a look at the card we did as a Make & Take. 


There are some great products in this suite!  You have new colored vellum, beautiful designer series paper inspired by the Impressionist painters of the 19th century, cute little embellishments, and a wonderful stamp set.   The Floral Essence Stamp Set features lovely sentiments and wonderful floral images great for anyone's style of crafting.
The Floral Essence stamp set also has a matching punch as you can see on the card we made.  When the new catalog comes out in June You will be able to get both the stamp set and punch in a cost saving bundle. 

Buy the way if you want to receive a free 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog I send them Free to my customers that have ordered from me in the last six months.  If you would like a free copy all you have to do is place a order in my online store and you will be on the list.   Or I can send you an invoice for $6 and I will be glad to pop one in the mail to you.  Catalogs will not start shipping until mid May.  We can not even order them until the first of May. 

If you think you are seeing fuzzy centers on the vellum flowers you would be correct.  This is one of the embellishments that will be coming out soon!  And, they are perfect for the flower centers, I will let you know if they fit the Daisy Stamp Sets.  Can you see that fabulous designer series paper on this card.  OMG! It's so pretty in person. I think I feel in love with this pack of paper due to my love of Monet's waterlily paintings.  This pack of wonderful yumminess features impressionistic details and the images used to create it was hand painted by one of the designers at Stampin' Up!. 
In the image above you can see a little sneak peek of not only this floral infused pack of designer series paper but a little look at the new 12 x 12 colored vellum as well. 
In closing let me remind you that you want be able to get these products until the catalog goes live in June.  I think it's June 2nd but I will have to double check my dates to be sure.  If you are looking at these products and thinking I need them before that; well you can do it by joining my team.  If you join now you will be able to preorder new products in May a full month before it goes live to everyone.  That's just one of the  perks to being a demonstrator not to mention you will get to save 20% on that and all future orders.  So for $99 you can pick $125 worth of product in your starter kit and then in May preorder select items in the new 2019 Annual catalog.  IF you would like to learn more you can click on the tabs under the join button at the top of my blog.  There you will find a lot of information that will help answer all your questions, if you still have questions or need help contact me and we can talk about it.  By the way I forgot to mention that your starter kit ships free.  If you already know you would like to take advantage of this great deal click the image below to start the process of signing up and picking out the items in your starter kit.  You can also add items on the last chance list to your kit and save more.
