“Carry On” with More Stampin’ Up! Peeks


It’s time to “carry on” with more Stampin’ Up! Catalog sneak peeks.  Anyone else reminded of Tim Gunn on “Project Runway” (I’m a “Runway” junkie) when you hear “carry on?”  This sentiment set (you can mix and match with other phrases) will be a hot ticket in the new Stampin’ Up! 2012-2013 Catalog and available FREE as a hostess reward with a qualifying product order of $150 or more starting June 1!



  • SNEAK PEEK:  That colorful snippet of paper is from International Bazaar Designer Series Paper (available June 1).  It offers exotic “card-friendly” patterns in rich hues of Chocolate Chip, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White.
  • SNEAK PEEK:  The new Whisper White 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon is charming and very easy to work with (me likey).  It will also be available June 1, when the new Stampin’ Up! catalog begins.


  • Are you still reading because you want to know how I created the little trio of squares?  It’s quite simple (and even easier than when I created a template for this card last fall).   I cropped out 1 1/4″ square scraps of card stock, adhered where I wanted them (yes, I “eyeballed” it) and then recropped them while in place with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch.
  • The cropped layer is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals to really show off the 3-D effect.
  • SNEAK PEEK:  The umbrellas are also from the Stampin’ Up! Carry On hostess stamp set and were stamped right through the open squares.

JUST $99!  The new Stampin’ Up! $99 Starter Kit let’s YOU choose ANY current catalog items you want up to $125.  It ships FREE for another 10% savings.  Dreamy!  PLUS you’ll get 8 of the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogs to share with friends or even host a party!  There’s no risk, no pressure and no penalty to drop!  Hobby stampers will feel right at home with the exclusive resources and friendliness of with my Stampin’ Pretty Pals.

Here’s what Kathy C. of my group shared just this week:
