I have a special treat for everyone that places an order with me using the hostess code Z9ZFACAW between now and the end of June. For every $25.00 you spend you will get to choose one of the following tutorials for free. That means if you spend $25.00 you get to choose 1 tutorial if you spend $50.00 you get to choose 2 and so on. Just email me your name and which tutorial(s) you would like and I will e-mail the tutorial back to you.
There are 3 ways to qualify for this offer:
1. Place your order online and use the hostess code.
2. If you are local, place your order with me.
3. If you place an order for $150.00 or more, don't use the hostess code because you will qualify for hostess dollars. I will still give you your choice of tutorials for the corresponding amounts spent if your order is over $150.00.
I hope you take advantage of this offer and are able to choose all of the tutorials. If you need a new Annual catalog let me know, I would love to get one into your hands. I love everything and my wish list is so long.

Thank you for stopping by and as always Happy Stamping.
Hostess Code: Z9ZFACAW
Did you know that stamp sets with coordinating punches are my favorites? They are! Why? Because coordinating stamps and punches make creating terrific looking projects fast and simple. One of my favorite coordinating sets from the Annual Catalog is the Mixed Bunch stamp set (#125535 wood-mount, #125537 clear-mount). Beyond the obvious you can use this floral set to create window cards, flower stencils, folded flowers, and butterfly and dragonfly punch art, just to name a few!
Tip: Place punch upside down on a solid flat surface when punching for ease and accuracy every time. Like so many of Stampin’ Up’s punches, this punch is a great multi-tasker.
You’re Amazing stamp set (#126720 wood-mount, #126722 clear-mount)
“Certain images bring nostalgic memories to mind. The You’re Amazing stamp set is full of images that bring to mind happy, youthful memories of circus acts, carnival games, and elephants doing amazing tricks under the big top.
Use the coordinating Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies (#127003) as background layers and to die cut images!
Lacy & Lovely stamp set (#122885 wood, #122887 clear)
“New stampers often ask me what stamp set they should purchase first. It’s a tough decision because there are so many great stamp sets and everyone has their own personal style! I think the best stamp sets for new stampers are ones that work well for a variety of occasions and techniques, and also include some greetings with the images. The Lacy & Lovely stamp set is a great stamp set for new stampers because the circle and floral images are fun for many occasions. The images are also great for a number of techniques like Rock n’ Roll, Heat Embossing, and Resists. The greetings, with a combination of script and angular fonts, add character without being overly blocky or feminine. With a few ink pads and some basic embellishments, you’ll have a great versatile stamp set you’ll use over and over again!”
“Stampin’ Up! is well known for our high quality stamps and for having the best coordinating products. The best of both of these worlds comes together when you get stamp sets that coordinate with a punch. Using coordinating stamps and punches is a great way to achieve a quality look quickly! You can easily punch out the coordinating image after stamping, or use the coordinating punch to create layers and backgrounds. It gets even better if you have a stamp set with a couple punches that coordinate. For example: the trendy and fun Ciao, Baby! stamp set coordinates with the Petite Curly Label Punch and the 7/8” Scallop Circle Punch. These punches coordinate with the larger Curly Label Punch and several larger Scallop Circle punches. All this coordination lets you easily create layers and add techniques like windows and donuts! You’ll love discovering all the ways you can use coordinating stamps and punches on your cards, gifts, 3-D projects, and scrapbooks!”
Tip: Cut punched Petite Curly Label or Curly Label in half and adhere behind a punched shape of the same size for a framing effect.
Make a Cake stamp set (#126740 wood-mount, #126742 clear-mount)
“Every day millions of people have birthdays – and I bet you know some of those people! So make their day extra special when you send them a hand-stamped card so they’ll know you think they are extra special, too! The Make a Cake stamp set lets you build delicious tiered cakes for birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, weddings, and more.
