Retro “I Dig You” Mojo Monday Card & FREE Shipping Starts!

Stampin up stamping stamp it pretty mary fish tag it set card ideas demonstrator blog retro fresh

So much happening yesterday including a massive outage at Typepad, my blogging platform, which has been hitting on and off over the last four days.  I’m so sorry that you couldn’t access my blog (and most other Typepad blogs worldwide).  I have diligently posted each day, optimistic that Typepad would resolve the issues and my posts and projects would reach you.   It’s frustrating, but one of those things outside my control.  I have yet to go to bed at the time I write this update, trying to find ways throughout last night and today to help my customers with the new promotions and share my card until things resolve.  Typepad appears to be working again but I’m cautiously optimistic.  Thank you to those of you who still found ways to place your orders through me yesterday (especially with the Free Shipping offer and new Retiring Lists–both below) or alert me to the fact that the blog could not be accessed!

NEW STAMPIN’ PRETTY FULL POST EMAIL DELIVERY! You’ll also note that I’m delivering the entire post to your inbox (for those who subscribe by email) rather than an excerpt for the first time ever!  If you saw the post yesterday (very few did) it may feel a little bit like the movie “Ground Hog’s Day!”  However, let’s hope this is the beginning of fresh and stronger start for Typepad and will feel like new a new post to those of you who missed it.


On to the good stuff!  I’m diggin’ this retro “I Dig You” card I created for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO342).  My Stampin’ Pretty Tips are below.  I wanted to share more big news below!

  • Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper provides a hip and colorful background.  Frankly, I had a hard time deciding on a pattern because they all looked great on this card!
  • I used a small circle punch (part of the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack–it’s on the retiring accessories list!) to create little notches for the Silver Baker’s Twine.

  1. Hi Mary – I’m super excited to have the ‘full’ posts via email. Thanks for that shift. I’ve been reading the truncated portions via email and then once a week or so heading over to your blog to read and see everything. You’re once of my favorite stampin up demos and someone I always recommend to other stampers. I really appreciate how diligent and consistent you are with posting (when Typepad isn’t getting in your way 🙂 ) and how beautiful your projects are. I’ve also loved seeing your stamping spaces and hearing about how you designed and use them. Have a great week!!!

  2. Woo hoo! Thanks, Kay. I love reading my comments and worried that delivering the full post to readers who subscribe might affect the comments. Love seeing them still come in! Its a great place to collectively answer questions, too!

  3. Mary, I read your blog every day and sure did miss you yesterday. So glad the issues are over. Love this retro card. Well, I love all your cars. Thanks so much for my daily inspiration.

  4. WOO HOO!!!!! Looks like you are on again Mary, I’m so very happy, specially for you because you probably were pulling your hair waiting for Type Pad to fix this mess. Now, on to your fabulous card…..It is indeed so Retro and fun, the DSP design and colors remind me of an oil cloth my grandma (my mom’s mom) had in her little kitchen. Love the frame you created for this fun image embellished with this cute little flowers.
    Welcome back my dear, I bet you are finally relieved that this electronic troubles are behind you.
