Coming Soon! Hearts & Hugs Bundle

The new 2024-2025 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog is coming soon! On May 1, you’ll be able to purchase products such as this new Hearts & Hugs bundle. As a demonstrator, we’re offered the opportunity to purchase select products a month prior to their release. One such product is the adorable Hearts & Hugs Bundle. (Remember a bundle includes the stamp set and the coordinating dies – by purchasing as a bundle, you save 10%.) The different characters are cute but I especially like the sentiments in the stamp set. We all need a hug once in awhile and the bundle is a great way to send a hug via a greeting card.

For today’s card, I opted to use the pair of walruses from the Hearts & Hugs Bundle. Just look at the faces of the walruses! Doesn’t it make you feel warm & fuzzy?

Notice the pink? It’s one of the new 2024-2026 In-Colors, called Pretty In Pink and is also “coming soon.” The pink is a “true pink” and pairs with a wide variety of the Stampin’ Up! colors. Today, I’ve paired it with Pecan Pie.

Cut Dimensions
  • Pretty In Pink Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (score/fold at 4 1/4″ for card base)
  • Pecan Pie Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (layering panel)
  • Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (top layering panel)
  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4″ x 2 1/4″; 3″ x 3/4″

Be sure to add the Hearts & Hugs Bundle to your wish list! May 1st is approaching soon and you’ll want to create “paper hugs” to send to your friends. If you would like a copy of the 2024-2025 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and currently do not have a demonstrator, just email me your request.

Bee Mine Valentine Card

Isn’t the bumblebee the cutest?! Today’s card features the Bee My Valentine Bundle and the Bee Mine Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up! Jan-Apr 2024 Mini Catalog. I’m using it as a Valentine’s card but the sentiment works for other occasions too. Perhaps as a fun anniversary card or just a way to express love. The cheerful Bee Mine Designer Series Paper provides the perfect background for the card. You’ll notice that the sentiment is cut with the Heart Punch…unfortunately after using, I realized the punch is retired. However if you don’t have a heart punch or a heart die, a circle punch or other shape to cut around the sentiment will work great.

Do you want to recreate the card? The cut dimensions for the cardstock and Bee Mine Designer Series Paper, as well as, an assembly video are below to make it convenient for you!

Cut Dimensions for the Bee Mine Valentine Card:
  • Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″, score/fold at 5-1/2″ (card base)
  • 3″ x 4″ Bee Mine Designer Series Paper: (3) 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″; coordinating panel: 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″
  • Basic White Cardstock: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″; 4″ x 5-1/4″ (interior)
  • Daffodil Delight Cardstock: scrap for bee
  • Petal Pink Cardstock: scrap for wings
ASSEMBLY VIDEO

As you notice, this cheerful card is simple to assemble! And the Bee Mine Designer Series Paper is the perfect backdrop. The card is a project from the January 2024 Monthly Card Class. You can find information on classes and Class Kits To Go at this link.

Joy of Noel Holiday Card

This month the theme for card classes is Thinking of Christmas. Four cards featuring holiday theme were created using a different bundle. The Joy of Noel is one of the featured bundles. With the bundle and the Joyful Specialty Designer Series Paper, creating an elegant card is easy! The dies do the majority of the work and the designer series paper provides a gorgeous background. For the Joy of Noel Holiday card, stamping is minimal. Just stamp the word, Noel, and die cut with the coordinating dies to create the card front focal point. If you wanted, the letters could be die cut from another designer paper or cardstock making it even simpler.

If you’d like to recreate this card, the video below will guide you through the steps of creating the elegant card.
