I’m a little behind so here is my Tuesday card on this Friday evening. It is based on the card shown below.
I turned the card and used the new Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper for the oval. I used the Basket Weave embossing folder which was a sale-a-bration item and will be available in the new annual catalog come June 1. I also used the leaf punch, stitched framelits, tranquil tide paper & ink, along with a layer of mint macaron which is a returning color available again in the new AC. Other items used are clear gem embellishments, vellum paper and copper washi tape.
As I mentioned, the new Annual catalog is available to order from on June 1st. If you would like a catalog (and don’t already have a demonstrator), just email me your address (email@example.com) and I will mail one out to you. You can also see the new catalog in my online store effective June 1st. The current annual catalog, along with the retiring items (some discounted up to 50%) are currently in my store at darleneseitz.stampinup.net so be sure to check out these retiring items which are available until May 31st.
Thank you for your patience this week in waiting for this post. Happy crafting,

Today’s card is almost an exact copy of a card shown on page 94 of the Annual Catalog (the pink square card). The only thing I changed was the color. As you can see, I used Tranquil Tide, a beautiful new in-color. Here is my card and below it a picture of what the catalog card looks like.
For my card I used a set from the annual catalog called Floral Phrases (page 95) for the stamping down the sides of the DSP panel. For the greeting, I used a stamp from the set Perennial Birthday, which can be found in the Occasions Catalog on page 16. I also used a greeting from that set for the inside.
I used several other products from page 95 of the A.C.. The DSP is called Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack and has prints using all the 2017-2019 in colors. I used a bow from Bitty Bows and a new punch in the annual catalog called Starburst for the round greeting accent. That’s it for this quick and simple card.

Here is this weeks card. It is based off the card shown in the annual catalog on page 223 (top right corner). I stayed pretty true to the design. I used an old retired set but this could easily be made with the Good Tidings set still available from Stampin Up. I also used the two largest dies from the Lots of Labels framelits. I can’t seem to stop making Christmas cards.
Don’t forget to check out the retiring list and discounted items in my on-line store. Also, the Clearance rack has been updated with new items. Here is the link to my on-line store darleneseitz.stampinup.net.
As always, Happy Crafting,

It’s finally here, the new precision stamping tool from Stampin’ Up! called Stamparatus. This tool is even better than the one’s currently on the market. Many years in the making and developed by our Home Office and Demonstrators, it will bring you precision stamping on small or large surfaces (the bottom and one of the sides are open) and gives you four stamping plates so you don’t have to stamp, replace your stamp and stamp again. The panels (two) come out easily and can be turned over to make four surfaces. You also can leave the stamp in place and move the plates down in the hinges so you can repeat stamp down the page.
The tool comes with a gridded stamping base, foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps. To use with rubber stamps, just remove the mat. The tool also comes with two reversible plates giving you four surfaces for your stamps, two strong magnets to hold the paper in place and a storage area on the bottom to store your magnet when you are not using the tool. The plates snap into the two hinges letting you move the plates down and stamping the image again for a repeat look. There are also rulers and grid marks on the plates and bottom of the tool.

Happy Stamping, you will fall in love with stamping all over again!
Stampin’ Up! has released their new catalog and I hope you are enjoying crafting with some of the new products. Today, I will start a series of blogs on some of the individual products and/or suites. For today, I will be showcasing the Carols of Christmas Bundle.
The set (see above) comes with a variety of stamps with big bold greeting. The matching thinlits have some images that match the stamps and some that you can add to your stamped images. You can make entirely different cards from this set without anyone knowing you used the same set. You can also use the border die all year round. It adds such a nice detail to your cards. The card also adds the ornaments, which you can die cut, and some rhinestones and ribbon. Here is a card using the border die:
The set also comes with another big bold greeting Peace on Earth which is showcased in the card shown below. Adding small details such as the poinsettias and rhinestones with some of the fabulous new striped ribbon finishes off the card. Oh, and I can’t forget the Designer Series Paper, called Be Merry, which is actually in the Annual Catalog. (I will list all products with their product number at the end of the post).
The next card is an entirely different look and uses die cut images. The sky with the moon and the stars (highlighted with Gold Foil) truly sets the card apart than just having a blank space. And this die can be used with many sets/cards and year round. DSP is used again (Be Merry) for the trees which includes white specks for a look of snow. DSP from the Naturally Eclectic pack is used for the background. The small deers are also made using die cuts. You can add any greeting you want to this card or leave the front blank and stamp the inside. I used the Peace on Earth greeting for the inside.

Seems for me it’s never too early to start getting ready for Christmas. Stampin’ Up! is going to release their Holiday Catalog on September 1, 2017. In the meantime, The Carols of Christmas Bundle is being released early (8/1) so you can get a jump on making your Christmas cards. There are some neat stamps and dies that make for a wow card yet you can go simple with this set of stamps because of the large greetings.
These two cards feature the Peace on Earth greeting. They both also use the trees. The one on the right is a shaker card and also uses the sky/moon/stars die on the top. The one on the left is a fairly simple one which would be perfect for mass producing cards.
These two use the Deck the Halls greeting and the border which is a real versatile die that could be used all year long. The one on the left is a good idea for using the set with your family picture included. Vellum cardstock is used for the top layer and can be picked up so your friends and family can see the picture more clearly.
These products can be ordered separatly or as a bundle and you save 10% when you bundle. Visit my on-line store at darleneseitz.stampinup.net or contact me today at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also leave a comment on this blog.
Thanks all for today…I have to get back to making some Christmas cards using Carols of Christmas.
