3-2-1 Stamp Weds April 20, 2022: Heart & Home Cinnamon Cider Pussy Willows Card

Heart & Home Cinnamon Cider Pussy Willows Card

Today’s card came about as I saw a beautiful card by Dawn Olchefske on her blog dostamping.typepad.com dated March 12, 2022. I CASE’d (Copy & Selectively Edited) her beautiful card and changed things up a bit. I also saw another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator – sorry … I’m not sure who it was 😦 … who turned a punched piece from the Sprig Punch into a sprig of Pussy Willows. I wanted to share a project with you using the Pussy Willows and this is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy using the tutorial below and I’d love it if you’d check out my video on FaceBook below and especially if you’d Comment and Like the post. I like to surprise a random person who comments by sending them a copy of the card. Maybe it’ll be you!

On the video today, I mentioned several of the current promotions at Stampin’ Up! Be sure to check my demonstrator website at stampersue.stampinup.net for all the details.

I’m going to be ordering some basic supplies like Thick Basic White and Crumbcake Cardstock (my go-to’s for a lot of my card bases) as well as adhesives and Medium Envelopes. This is a great to stock up and use the one-day FREE shipping to save $$.

Last Chance Products: There are so many amazing products that unfortunately are not carrying over to the 2022-23 Annual Catalogue (it goes live May 3rd by the way).

3-2-1 Stamp Weds March 30, 2022: Hand-Penned Memories & More Card

Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes #155501 and Card Pack (155505)

Isn’t this Hand-Penned suite of products so pretty! We are revisiting the Hand-Penned group of products and today we are using the Memories & More Cards & Envelopes as well as Card Pack. This suite of products has been my favourite and I would even go as far as to say that it has been a favourite as compared to any of the products I’ve loved from Stampin’ Up! though the years. The delicate, hand-drawn images remind me of flowers I remember from my grandmother’s garden in Sutton, England. It also contains the images and colours that my friend Heather was known for (if you’ve stamped with me for fairly long period, you will have known Heather before she sadly passed away).

On the video today, I mentioned several of the current promotions at Stampin’ Up! Be sure to check my demonstrator website at stampersue.stampinup.net for all the details.

SAVINGS ARE IN BLOOM promo: There are 13 bundles on sale and you can see all of them on my Stampin’ Up! website HERE. The mini size of the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine is also 20% off during March and that comes to $65.00 instead of $82.00! What a nice to time to have a sale as Stampin’ Up! recently announced that prices are going up for shipping (an additional $1 minimum or $10.95 for orders under $99 and up 1% to 11% shipping for orders $99 and more). Don’t miss out on the savings!!

3-2-1 Stamp Weds March 9, 2022: Waves of the Ocean Bridge Fold Card

Waves of the Ocean Collection #161797

Have you ever crafted a Bridge Fold card? There were several things on my mind that ended up making this card come together. I have been wanting to use colours of the Ukranian flag in a card project (the war in Ukraine is heart-wrenching), the next series of products for 3-2-1 Stamp are the Waves of the Ocean stamps, dies & accessories plus I always love sharing another fun card fold! So here is the design for this week – it is a CASE’d project which stands for Copy And Selectively Edit – I adjusted just a few parts of the card from the project I saw by fellow demonstrator, Leena Girsa of ALaCards.blogspot.com.

There were problems with the audio at about the 8:00 minute mark. If you need any clarification of the “how to”, please let me know. I will redo the video Friday or Saturday and repost that asap.

3-2-1 Stamp Weds Jan 12, 2022: Daffodil Afternoon Hello

Jan/Feb 2022 Sale-a-Bration Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper (DSP)

I am so excited to share another project from the brand new January to June 2022 Mini Catalogue (I call it the spring catalogue in my videos)! The Daffodil DSP has been very popular with my customers especially. I find this DSP pretty but rather busy so, even after I posted the project, I keep thinking maybe I should’ve added a layer of Vellum across the full front of the card and then added the Mint Macaron medallion … sometimes I am challenged to leave a card alone after I think I’m finished!
