A few bonuses for the last days of Sale-A-Bration!

It’s Sale Saturday! I received through some supply orders a few bonuses for Sale-A-Bration and I want to offer these to you. I have two different offers for you.

The first offer is if you order the Ladybug Dies I will give you the Little Ladybug Stamp Set for FREE! I have two of these so the first two crafters will get them.

The second offer is if you order $50 or more you will get your choice of a 6X6 stack of the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper (2 packs available), Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (1 pack available), Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (1 pack available), or So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper (1 pack available).

To qualify you will need to order online at http://jonidaniel.stampinup.net and use the host code KVCNCBCQ in which Iris is the host. If your order is over $50 it also qualifies for reimbursed shipping. Your order needs to be submitted by March 31 at noon.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂

P.S. I am offering these bonuses personally to finish this Sale-A-Bration season with a bang. I hope you enjoy!

It’s all about the poppies!

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are creating cards with the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.

  • Take Thick Whisper White Card Stock and cut to 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″. On the 8 1/2″ side score at 4 1/4″.
  • Cut Blackberry Bliss Card Stock to 5 1/4″ X 4″ and attach with Snail Adhesive.
  • Cut Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to 5″ X 3 3/4″. Cut Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to about 4 1/2″ (enough to go around the mat and attach in the back). Stamp texture from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set on the ribbon. Attach with Glue Dots and then attach the mat with Snail Adhesive.
  • Stamp sentiment on Whisper White Card Stock with Blackberry Bliss Ink Pad. Run through Die Cutting Machine with Painted Labels Dies.
  • Attach gems.

If you would like to create these cards and get your own Painted Poppies Stamp Set be watching tomorrow as a new Stamp of the Month class will debut with the new catalog tomorrow.

Happy Crafting!

Using the peel-offs for masking or stenciling.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!

Well, today we are using the pieces we normally throw away. When you put together your stamp sets and you peel the paper backing off of the rubber portion of your stamp keep it. Don’t throw it away. That piece of paper is good for masking or stenciling while stamping. So keep that little piece of paper.

Happy Crafting!

So much to do.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today is the day to rest and re-charge. Do you ever feel like there is so much to do and so little time? It’s amazing to me when I take some time off (whether it be an hour, day, or a week) my perspective changes on what is really important. So much of what is seen that has to be done right now in fact doesn’t have to be done at all.

So I would encourage you to take a step back and look at your priorities. I had someone very close to me once say “if all else fails…sleep on it”. Your perspective will often change after a nap.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
