Hello Stamping Friends,
How the year is flying by! Father’s Day crept up on me this year and I had to employ the help of my DH, darling husband, to make the Father’s Day cards. I had done a spinner card for Mother’s Day using the Sunflower card from Deb Valders Stampladee blog, (thank you, Deb), and thought it only appropriate to do a Father’s Day spinner card. Deb demonstrated how to do a pinwheel spinning card and that seemed masculine enough!
I picked a bright piece of DSP, and matched it with Bermuda Bay and Tangerine Tango for use as the card base and accent border. The greeting comes from the “Guy Greetings” set, a set that did carryover to the new catalog – hurrah!
POSTAGE HELP: The green button makes the card “nonmachinable” which means it will have a 22 cent surcharge to mail. Be very careful when you take your cards to the post office that you use the term “Nonmachinable”. I have taken cards in and been charged the small parcel fee which is about $2.49. The correct cost should be only 71 cents. I have written “Hand Stamp Please” on the envelope and still been charged the small parcel fee. It was nice to meet Dale at our local post office who searched for the correct category and even had a stamp to mark the envelope “Nonmachinable”. No more wasted postage.
Hello Stamping Friends,
We had a great time at the catalog launch last Saturday. We made a bookmark and refrigerator magnets with the new In Colors so we could see them up close and personal- they are beautiful colors! And that ribbon………just yummy!
To take those little decorations home, we needed a little bag so we used the new Gift Bag Punch Board (pg. 150 in the new catalog) ((Thank you, Sheri))
The punch board has a Small, Medium, and Large size box, but with a little tweaking we could make an extra small box using a 6 X 6 piece of paper. (note: page 144 of the new catalog has three different paper stacks of 6X6 designer series paper). I didn’t get those in my first order so we made do with scrap from the past. Here are the gift bags ready for decorating with greetings, the starting paper sizes are on the sticky notes.
Stampin’ Up! has a great instruction video as well:
Contact me if you need a catalog mailed to you, or come by and make your own catalog bookmark & magnets! You have to see these new In Colors to appreciate them, the catalog doesn’t do them justice.
