Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a Special for You!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Hopefully today finds you in your finest green attire; even if that just means green inky fingers! 🙂  It’s a day that I mostly get to celebrate these days by digging some green out of my closet and remembering to listen to some great Irish music…or at least Irish singers.  Has anyone heard of the Irish Rovers?  They are a group that my parents used to listen to when I was growing up and I’m definitely feeling the need to see if I can find their album and play it around the house today.

I’m also feeling like sharing some green with you today as well!  I put together a card for you as well as I’m having a special all day today.

 Every order of $25 or more today will receive a Stampin’ Write marker in the green of your choice

Fun, huh? 🙂  And after deciding to offer this special, I realized just how many green options there are right now in the Stampin’ Up! color palate:  Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, and Lucky Limeade.  So many great options for your projects that need a little green in them.  For my card today, I decided to go with Pear Pizzazz and Always Artichoke:

I don’t normally have much of a need to make St. Patrick’s Day cards or scrapbook pages, so I don’t tend to have themed crafting supplies on hand.  Luckily, it is easy to pull something together with punches and paper I had lying around!

I started out with the Paisley Petals designer series paper as the background and the Pear Pizzazz ribbon.  From there, I decided I would finish out the card in a monochromatic fashion, so I stuck to the greens in the paper and ribbon.

I love making clovers out of punched hearts… so easy and isn’t it just cute?  And I decided to pull out my Stampin’ Write markers and my handy dandy Color Spritzer and get even the white paper in theme with the card.  I spritzed the paper with my Always Artichoke marker for a spackled effect in the center of my card.

And to finish it all off, I grabbed one of my go-to stamp sets, Teeny Tiny Wishes, because it has a stamp for all holidays including St. Patrick’s Day!  Ta da!

So, I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy all the green on display today!

Love You Much sample and Sneak Peek Promotion!

For some reason I had my dates wrong with the sneak peek promotion and didn’t realize it started today!  Oops!  Well, now I know better and wanted to share with you all the details and a sample I made.  So… want to see some new stuff from the upcoming Spring/Summer idea book?  Of course you do!  Well, it looks like some new punches, paper, brads, and stamp sets are in your future! 

lymbundleThis year Stampin’ Up is letting non-demonstrators get some sneak peek items before you can buy them from the regular catalog with the Love You Much bundle.  In this bundle, you get a brand spankin’ new stamp set, a hot off the presses set of Designer Paper, and the fantastic heart trio punch that is a perfect match for the stamp set!  And not only do you get the early preview of the products, but you get a 20% off discount! Seriously! 

This bundle is available until Jan 31st, but if you order today you can combine it with the free shipping and 10% off retiring set promotion for tons of savings. 🙂 (I’m a bargin shopper so this type of compounded sale is the sort of thing I live for).  If you don’t see the bundle available online, just email or call me to place your order.

Here is a quick sample I made up.  I love using the heart trio stamp set with the punch!  Too much fun (you can see them both in the image from the flyer).
