June Stamp of the Month Club

Hi friends! how are you today?

Have you heard about the Stamp of the Month Club here at Stampin’ 365? Each month, club members receive a fabulous Stampin’ Up! stamp set and all the paper supplies to create four exclusive cards with envelopes for just $34.95, (or $14.95 for just the card supplies.) Everything is pre-cut, neatly packaged and comes with typed directions and a color photocopy of the cards. Club members just add ink and adhesive. (I even include a handmade gift tag, created to match, just for you from thankful me!)

June’s Stamp of the Month Club features one of my favorite returning sets: Swirly Bird!

The Swirly Bird stamp set is incredibly versatile with images of roses, a boat, a kite, flowers and a bird’s nest. (Click on the image below to see this fabulous set for yourself!)

P.S. The Swirly Bird Bundle is retiring, so if you have not had a chance to purchase these gorgeous dies and stamp set, and would like to, let me know!

 

Would you like to find out more about how you can become part of the Stamp of the Month Club? Click here and if you’re ready to join, email me at stampin365@gmail.com to sign up today! (Deadline is June 1st.)

In the club and already have the set? No Problem! Just email me at stampin365@gmail.com with the substitution of your choice (up to $26) by the first of June.

Don’t miss out on your chance to make these fun cards for your stash!

Happy stampin’ friend!

A Gift Tag With Suite Sentiments

Hi friends, how are you today?

Here is a recent project I created for our Stamp of the Month Club members with the April stamp set, Suite Sentiments.

Each month, I design a special tag to show our club members how must I appreciate them. It’s one of my favorite parts of my job. This tag features some really great retiring items, so be sure to pick them up before they sell out!

Stampin’ Tips:

~These went together quickly with a stapler instead of glue.

~The trim was cut from the Very Vanilla Lace Trim, I just cut the edge off and used that.

~The butterfly looks so pretty cut from the cloud pattern in the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP Stack.

~Many of these items are retiring, so pick them up while you still can!

More Fun With Cool Treats

Hi friends! How are you today?

My son continues to battle his illness, which has finally been diagnosed as autoimmune encephalitis. This means his immune system is attacking his brain, which wreaks havoc on both the body and the mind. Recovery can take up to two years. About 25% of people either never recover or pass away, but we hold fast to the hope that he will get better. He has long periods of time when he does not speak, swallow or even know what is going on, but he randomly comes back around and when he does, he is still himself. Words can not describe how wonderful those moments are. If you are interested in learning more, the book “Brain On Fire” by Susannah Cahalan is a first hand account of a young lady who lived through the nightmare of autoimmune encephalitis. It is so similar to Thomas’ battle that I often put it down and just cried.

As a result of his health struggle, which has been going on for almost eight months now, I have not been able to keep up here at Stampin’ 365, yet so many of you have continued to support me. Thank you! These moments of creating and sharing with you are very therapeutic and I appreciate each of you so much. You are why I do this!

So today, I thought I would share an easy little treat sack I created with the Cool Treats Bundle for the display boards at Onstage.

With all the little ice cream cones, sundaes, and popsicles, the Cool Treats bundle is so much fun to play with and perfect for last minute gift giving!

Thanks for stopping by today and a huge thank you to all my readers, customers, and team members for your continued support. The road has been long and hard, but you have helped to ease the load!

Until next time, happy stampin’ friends!

Gorgeous (Free!) Glimmer

Hi friends! How are you today?

Here is one of the cards we made last night at a workshop. I just had to show off the gorgeous new Bermuda Bay glimmer paper. Just look at how it sparkles in the light!

This 6×6 glimmer paper comes in three gorges colors and is available free with a $50 purchase for just a little while longer. (While supplies last, so don’t miss out!)

Stampin’ Tip

1. The Lift Me Up Bundle comes with cute little clouds. You can add interest with a sponge dauber and your stamp pad. Just sponge a little color on the edges- so cute!

2. Pair the Cupcakes and Carousels 6×6 dsp with the Lift Me Up Bundle for really fun cards.

3. Want an easy trick for gluing intricate dies? Use a silicone mat! Put a dab of multipurpose glue on the mat. Place the die on the mat, upside-down. Use a sponge to pick up a little glue (not too much!) and sponge all over the back, being careful to not shift the die. Now you can glue it down. Use wet wipes to quickly clean your mat. Viola!

4. Want to step this card up? Add the layers of color to the hot air balloon, under the glimmer paper.

Hi friends!

Just a quick post today to say Happy Valentine’s Day and share a super easy card with you. This layout could easily be used for a wedding or anniversary card, just change the colors. (I was picturing silver and white.) Even a baby card would be cute- just add the word baby to the love and use pink or blue. Cute!

Hello friends! How are you today?

The stamp of the Month Club is finally back! A huge thank you to all of our club members for being so understanding and gracious as I took time to care for my son these past couple months. Your support, thoughts, and prayers have truly meant so much and helped to get me through some very dark days. Now our days are full of hope and he continues to recover, which means…

I have time and energy to make stuff- yay! February’s club features the beautiful Blooms and Wishes stamp set:

blooms-and-wishes-stampin365-com

Have you heard about the Stamp of the Month Club here at Stampin’ 365? Each month, club members receive a fabulous Stampin’ Up! stamp set and all the paper supplies to create four exclusive cards with envelopes for just $34.95. Everything is pre-cut, neatly packaged and comes with typed directions and a color photocopy of the cards. Club members just add ink and adhesive. (I even include a handmade gift tag, created to match, just for you from thankful me!)

 

The beautiful watercolor florals look great in the colors below, or club members can use the colors of their choice. After stamping the images on watercolor paper, I used my aqua painter to pull the color out. This fun watercolor technique is completely optional. The images look gorgeous with or without this technique.
