CASEing Tuesday Card for this week 3/20/2018

Hi everyone, Here is this weeks’ CASEing Tuesday cards. I did two very similar ones. The cards are based off the card on page 6 of the occasions catalog (the one with the flowers). Here are a picture of my cards & the catalog card

I changed up the second card a bit but the first one is very similar. I used the Fruit Basket Bundle which comes with the stamp set and a pack of four tiny punches, strawberries, pineapple, pear, and a melon. They are so cute and a great way to add accent and dimension to your card. The DSP is called Tutti-Frutti and comes in 6 x 6 and there is 48 sheets filled with colorful fruits and patterns.

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is still going on until the end of March. You can earn free products with a qualifying order. See my on-line store for details. Here is a link to the store

If you would like to order any products, I would greatly appreciate your business. Please use the following Hostess Code for orders under $150. You will receive a free gift from me. Code : ZVGAXGEA.

Thank you and happy crafting

#CASEing Tuesday Card 134

CASEing Tuesday for 2/13/2018

Here are my cards for this week. I guess I really liked this design because I made four cards using it for this week (and I worked a lot this week for my outside job). I was in the mood to craft. Here are the cards.

And here is the card from the catalog.

As you can see, I changed some small details on some of the cards and added some bling. The sets I used are (in order of pictures): Color me Happy (still available), Seaside Shore, Feathery Friends (hostess set), and Daisy Delight. All these sets are current and can be seen and purchased in my on-line store. Here is the link

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is still going on until the end of March (=free products). Contact me for more details or any stamping question.

CASEing TUESDAY CARD for 1/9/2018

Today’s card is based on a card in the SALE-A-BRATION Catalog on page 15.  See both cards below.

I used the Birthday Memories DSP and Pacific Point card stock.  I used three stamp sets.  Birthday Delivery from the annual catalog (the bouquets and hats on the bottom of the card),  Celebration Time (big party hat) also from the annual catalog and Party Panda (the greeting, Happy birthday) which is FREE with a qualifying purchase.  It is found in the SAB catalog.  I also used 1/4 ” edged ribbon (Pacific Point).  These products can be seen in my on-line store at

CASEing Tuesday Card for 12/19/2017

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  

As always,  Happy Crafting,

CASEing Tuesday Card for this week

  • Here is this weeks CASEing Tuesday Card.   I have used the Painted Harvest set and made the flowers into wreaths.  I used both flower stamps and used Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive as the color combinations.  Each wreath was stamped a little different using different layer combinations and color.  I also used Cherry Cobbler and the dot stamp that comes with the set as well as for the greeting wording.  I added small bows using twine.  The design was from the card in the Holiday Catalog on page 48, bottom left.  Here is the picture. 
  • There is still time to shop from the Holiday Catalog.   This set will not be retiring when the catalog sales period ends on January 2, 2018.  However don’t wait to order as it is a very versatile set that can be used all year long.  The link to my on-line store is
  • Also, the retiring items from the catalog (holiday) have been announced AND many are currently on sale.  Don’t miss out on these year end specials.  See my on-line store for details under Store.

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.

HOW DO I GET ONE?? You might ask.  You can reserve one i.e. preorder one starting November 16th at 1:00 p.m. Pacific time or 2:00 p.m. Mountain time (and so on).  You will need to GO TO MY ON-LINE STORE AT:

January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit


January Paper Pumpkin Kit, Adoring Arrows, were these cute treat bags.  There was enough supplies to make 24 bags.  The kit included everything you need to complete them excluding scissors.  A full set of stamps, ink spot, adhesives, metallic thread and all the paper material to make the bags and arrows.  The kit is such a great deal and comes with instructions and there is a You Tube video on how to make the project.  Sometimes it’s cards, banners, wreath, treat bags/holders and who knows what it will be from month to month.

You can buy the kit two ways.  One way is a prepaid subscription where you can buy 1 month, 3 months, 6 month or 12 months.  Right now StampinUp is running a special on the 3 month subscription for $55 in lieu of $59.  To sign up for a subscription just go to this link and click on Shop then Paper Pumpkin.  Also when you purchase at least a 3 month subscription, you’ll receive a free item of your choice from our Sale-A-Bration catalog.  This deal will last until March 31, 2017.   In fact, you can receive a free item for every $50. that you spend.  Please see my blog regarding SAB, here is the link in case you want to check it out:  .You can also purchase the kit on a month to month basis, for this you can sign up at  Be sure to pick me as your demonstrator (Darlene Seitz number 2096764).

If you do not want to make the entire craft, you can usually make some cards with the materials (or if you have left over material).  These are the cards I made from some of the material.  I did add some of my own materials.  But, if you are an active Paper Pumpkin subscriber with me, I will send you some additional materials, pictures and instructions to make some cards that I have created.


20170122_224609120170122_224254120170123_2254291  There are so many different cards you could make.  Just let your imagination take over.
