Running low on a few items

Stampin' Up! Everything Eleanor and Work of Art www.stampingsmiles.comThe supplies of the Hello You Thinlits Dies, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Artisan Embellishments Kit, Crumb Cake 1/2″ Seam Binding, Clear Block Storage Caddy and Paper-Piercing Tool are low. When they run out of a product, it will be unavailable to order for awhile. This will be temporary, but how long it will be unavailable is not known.

When the Hello Thinlits Dies are moved to the Not Orderable List, that will also mean the Crazy About You Bundles will be unavailable too. If you wanted or needed any of these Stampin’ Up! products soon, order now.

 

 

Adding butterflies to our handmade cards is especially popular now that we’ve moved into spring. Seeing the Elegant Butterfly Punch added to the Low Inventory List was something I knew you’d all want to know. It makes it easier to plan your order.

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross

Easter brings to mind the cherished gospel hymn The Old Rugged Cross. Watch to see how I made my Easter card with the Stampin’ Up! Blessed by God Stamp Set.

If the video is not displaying properly, watch my fast and fabulous Easter card video tutorial here.

Handmade Easter Card with Stampin' Up! Blessed by God www.stampingsmiles.comMy handmade Easter card is a great example of why we collect a variety of stamp sets. Using the sun from the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set, the small hill from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set and greeting and sentiments from the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set all worked together for card that reminds of why we’re celebrating Easter.

Wikipedia reads that George Bennard wrote the Old Rugged Cross in 1912. Over 100 years ago, and it’s still  one of most well known and beloved hymn of many.

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suff’ring and shame;
And I love that old cross where the Dearest and Best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.

  • Refrain:
    So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
    Till my trophies at last I lay down;
    I will cling to the old rugged cross,
    And exchange it someday for a crown.

You can read more about George Bennard and The Old Rugged Cross here.

Remember I said in the video Reed City, MI built a museum that still operates today dedicated to George Bennard’s life and ministry? I took a picture of it this afternoon.

Old Rugged Cross Museum www.stampingsmiles.com

Admission is free. How fitting is that?

Stampin’ Up! Happy Easter Bunny is dancing for candy!

Stampin' Up! Happy Easter Bunny Treat www.stampingsmiles.comThis adorable bunny from the single Stampin’ Up! Easter Bunny Stamp is dancing with joy. Candy also has plenty of humans doing a little happy dance too. :)

The dancing bunny was cut out from the rest of the stamp so he could be used for this sweet Easter treat holder. He was watercolored with Smoky Slate, Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi Classic Stampin’ Pad ink. He was then cut out with the Paper Snips. Those little scissors are incredible for detail cutting such as this.

Stampin' Up! Happy Easter Bunny Stamp www.stampingsmiles.com

The holder is two tags made with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch. Why two instead of one long piece punch on both ends? The reason is I wanted to emboss the cardstock. Embossing is a quick and easy way to dress up a project. Embossing Folders are not long enough to emboss the full length needed. But, that’s okay, we’ve got Mini Glue Dots to hold the two tags together.

The Mini Glue Dots came in handy to also adhere the bunny to the front and to secure the candy to the inside of the holder.

Basic Gray Baker’s Twine holds the two tags together at the top while looking good and coordinating with the gray bunny. Pink and gray is always a winning combination.

If you’d like to make my Happy Easter Bunny treat holders, all the supplies are pictured below and linked into my online store. Place your order of $50 or more by March 31, 2015, you may choose the Argyle Embossing Folder for FREE as your Sale-a-bration gift!

If you’ve wanted the Ovals Collection Framelits . . .

Stampin' Up! Lotus Blossom Stamp Set www.stampingsmiles.com . . . it would be a good idea to order them now. Unless the projects you had in mind for the Ovals Collection Framelits can wait, I wanted to let you know they have been added to the Low Inventory list. When the supplies on sell out, we’ll have to wait until the moon and shipping stars align again bringing harmony to our cardmaking orders. Until then, they will be unavailable to order until a new supply is delivered.

When you order the Ovals Collection Framelits, you’ll be more than halfway to a FREE Sale-a-bration product! The beautiful, beautiful Lotus Blossom Stamp Set is one of the choices you can select with your $50 Stampin’ Up! product purchase in my online store. But only through March 31. We’re in the final ten days of the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration.

Low Inventory Products

 

Several products are unavailable to order. The list below does not in any means imply the products have been retired. In the short time Stampin’ Up! has made a few products unavailable to order, I’ve already seen several suddenly become available again. For instance, the Regals Stampin’ Write Markers and Perpetual Birthday Calendar Project Kit.

Currently (but not forever), the following items are NOT ORDERABLE:

126199: Stampin’ Pierce Mat
137866: Sahara Sand 7/8″ Lace Trim

Love is Kindness tulips wrapped in newspaper. How about candy?

Stampin' Up! Love is Kindness www.stampingsmiles.comThe tulips of the Stampin’ Up! Love is Kindness Stamp are charmingly wrapped in newspaper. The Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs have tulips on the wrapper. So, if tulips wrapped in newspaper looked good, could this also work to wrap the candy too? Easy enough to try with the Stampin’ Up! Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper. The newspaper printed paper was kept narrow enough to make sure the tulips could still be seen on the wrapper.

The tulips stamp are tied up with a string. Much like the Tangerine Tango Baker’s Twine I used. Looking cute. Now to pull it all together by using the two together.

 

Stampin' Up! Love is Kindness Gift Bag www.stampingsmiles.com

The tag was made with the new Ornate Tag Topper Punch. Looks like the Love is Kindness Stamp was made for it. The tulips were colored to coordinate with Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Garden Green Classic Stampin’ Pads and an Aqua Painter. The saying that is part of the Love is Kindness Stamp was left off so the “Happy Easter” greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set could be added. 

Stampin' Up! Love is Kindness Stamp www.stampingsmiles.com

A small strip of newspaper print paper from the Typeset Designer Paper was added to the bottom of the tag to pull the news print theme all together. Tangerine Tango Baker’s Twine to tie the gift tag to the Gusseted Cellophane Bag for a cute Easter goodie bag.

The Love is Kindness Stamp is a single stamp from the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog. You can use it to make a beautiful full size spring card (see one here) or an Easter gift tag. If you’d like to make Easter gift tags, order the Love is Kindness Stamp in my online store. But do it quickly. Single stamps have a history of not being available after a supplemental catalog ends. The 2015 Occasions Catalog runs only through June 2.
