Simply Succulents You’ve Been on My Mind

You have all been on my mind lately.  I have been ordering new catalogs for you and hopefully will have them this week.  I can’t wait to mail them to you.

Along with that, I was able to order some of the new products coming in our new Annual catalog.  One of the perks for being a Demonstrator is to order the products early.  I will also be attending Stampin’ Up!’s On Tour virtually this Saturday.  This event is where I will see other Demonstrators in my area and watch deomonstrations of some of the new products to get inspired.  I love that perk too.  If you have been thinking about joining our family or coming back to the Team FUNatics!, just let me know.  I would be happy to help.

So with that being said, I pulled out the Simply Succulents stamp set and made this cool card for you. For Instructions and Supplies read more.

Bunny Treat with Springtime Joy

We welcomed in Spring with sun and warmer weather. I am amazed at how fast the trees and plants are budding up again.  It’s causing my allergies to go crazy, but it’s so nice to see blue skies and the newness only Spring brings.
We only have a little over 2 weeks till Easter.  I know right?  It’s coming fast.
I have designed a cut bunny treat using the Springtime Joy stamp set and will show you how to color twine in any color you want to use.

Butterfly Bijou Fun Fold with Springtime Joy Card

I have a fun video for you today.  I’ll show you the new Butterfly Brilliance Bundle early release and how you can design lots of cards with the Brilliant Wings Dies and the Butterfly Bijou Designer paper. This exclusive release is available now until May 3rd.  It’s amazing!  Please note that the stamp set is one big background stamp and there is one large die that cuts out 6 butterflies at one time.  The stamps do not come with any sayings, but I will show you what I used.
Please remember this awesome paper will not be in our new Annual catalog.  It is only available now! The rest of the suite will be in our new Annual Catalog that comes out May 4th.
I will be placing my orders for the new catalogs by the end of this month.  If you have ordered from me in the last 6 months, you will receive a catalog from me FREE as a thank you.  If you would like a catalog and have not ordered yet, you still have time.  Place a $50-  order at my online store, by the end of the month, at Stampfunatics.com using my current Host Code and I will know you would like a catalog. I will mail these to the shipping address you have used.  If you have moved, please let me know as I pay for the catalogs and shipping and want to make sure you receive them.  If you just like to collect catalogs, I will be happy to bill you for the catalog and shipping.  Just let me know by the end of this month and I will bill you by Pay Pal and be happy to order you one too.

Oval Occasions St. Patty

I see St. Patty’s Day is coming next week.  Even if you are not Irish, it is always fun to tell your friends and family how lucky you are to know them and have them in your life.
I have designed a card today to do just that.  
I am using the new Oval Occasions Bundle # 156261, on page 65 of our mini Jan-June catalog, with stamps and matching punch.  It’s perfect for this card and I love the sentiment and font.
I will use this again for a cute Easter treat.  It also has lots of sentiments for birthdays, to welcome a new baby, for celebrating, thanking someone for their kindness and has tiny stars,  hearts and flowers.  It’s a great set that will work for multiple occasions. 
I also love the double oval punch.  They layer perfectly with the sayings.  You will find you can also use this punch for other sets you have. For Instructions and Supplies read more..

Simply Succulents Thanks Card

I have started buying plants for my garden.  Yes even in the dessert, I can grow roses and gardenias.  While I was at the nursery, I noticed all the beautiful succulents and cactus.  
So when I got home, I took out my Simply Succulents Bundle and started creating.  I love the set comes with several succulent plants, a flower pot, some beautiful expressions and dies to cut out sayings and the flowers and pot.  It also has a full size background die.  I have been practicing with my Blend Markers and some blending brushes and am so happy it is so easy. It’s so calming to color. Our Blend markers make this look so easy and impressive. I also will show you a Slide & Lock card that is a cool technique along with using the nice background die to make a stencil and some cool effects for different cards.  I think you will love it.

Hey Girlfriend Card

I also have another card idea using the “Hey Girlfriend” stamp set. I knew when I first saw it, that I would add it to my collection.  I truly treasure all my girlfriends and wanted to make a Galentine card for them.  With Valentine’s Day fastly approaching, I am seeing more and more Galentine everywhere.  Think how excited your girlfriends will be to receive a special card from you.  Where would we all be without our girlfriends?  
This set has the best sayings too.  “I love my Besties”, “You can Count on Me”, “You’re a tough act to follow” and more.I have also used this several times for my gifrlfriend’s birthdays. All the girl images and the cute balloon, dog and cat make this a well rounded set.
You can get the supply list and instructions, read more.
