Here is a Holiday Catalog sneak peek of the fun Acorny Thank You stamp set. I love that this bundle includes a punch that coordinates with the acorns so there is no fussy cutting required. It makes it so easy to layer the acorns. This bundle will be available starting September 1st.
Stamping Tip: This fun sentiment is included, but it would be easy to omit the “Dropping In To Say” and just have the word “Hi”. You can use markers to just ink up the “Hi” or use 2 colors to get 2 different colors on the stamp. Another option would be to use a piece of tape to cover the “Dropping In To Say” and use a stamp pad to ink the “Hi”. Just be sure to remove the tape before your stamp the image on your paper.
You can find gold and silver on sale this week! The Gold Glimmer Paper is awesome because you do not have to worry about the glitter falling off! Silver glitter is easily added to your projects with a little bit of 2-Way Glue. Check out the great deals on the clearance rack too. See all the deals here! Quantities are limited.

Have you seen the Silhouettes & Script set? It is one of the great 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Hostess sets. The hostess sets introduced in this catalog are some of my all time favorite Hostess sets. You can only purchase them with FREE Stampin’ Reward dollars that you earn when you place an order of $150 or more. These sets are priced lower so you get the best deal with the dollars you earn from Stampin’ Up!
Stamping Tip: You can get the two colors on your image like I did on the sun by inking the stamp in Crushed Curry and then adding the Tangelo Twist ink around the edge with a sponge dauber. You can roll the inked stamp in the Tangelo Twist, but I found that I had more control of where the ink went with a sponge dauber.
Add just a little bit to you background by spot sponging over one of the masks. I used a little bit of Crushed Curry ink over one of the masks from the Happy Patterns Decorative masks.

Are you ready for a little sneak peek? See how to create a fun shadow with die cut pieces from the Boo To You Framelit dies. These dies coordinate with the adorable Howl-o-ween stamp set and will be well used for Halloween treats. These new products will be available starting September 1st. Be sure to scroll down to see the video tutorial on how I created this Mini-Treat Bag.
Use some of the fun Envelope Paperto create your Mini-Treat Bag for the perfect weight bag. The paper comes in Neutrals or 2015-2017 colors. Add the fun pattern by stamping the Embossing Folder design on the front of the bag. I used the Tip Top Taupe ink with the Woodgrain embossing folder.
The glitter added to the owl and the Jack-o-lantern are so cute in real life and add so much to the treat bag. Little details like this make your projects so cute.

Perfect to use with the Envelope Punch Board is the Envelope Paper! It is the perfect weight (not too heavy and not too light to wrap your handmade cards.) I love this paper. I know someone that uses the paper to line the inside of her cards for a light writing surface.
What colors do you use with Lost Lagoon? I knew I wanted to use Lost Lagoon and decided to also use Rose Red, Pool Party, Blushing Bride, and Garden Green. I love this fun color combination and know I will be using it again. I used these colors and the images from the Gift From The Garden stamp set to create the patterned paper piece to slip behind the focal image with the potted plants.
I used to words from the Crazy About You stamp set to create the fun sentiment for this card. I think this will be such a fun card to send off to brighten someone’s day. With all of the words included in that stamp set it would be easy to change this card out for any other occasion.
I added a bit of interest behind the focal image with the nest of Silver Baker’s Twine. It is just a little touch without adding too much. Leave a comment below on some of your favorite color combinations.
Create a soft background with vellum and get some sparkle over the sentiment. I wanted to add a bit of glitter to this card so I used the Iridescent Ice to emboss the Happy Birthday. The Happy Birthday is from the fun Watercolor Words stamp set. Be sure to scroll down to see the video tutorial on how I created this card.
I pulled out my Crystal Effectsto add the shine to the flag banner placed over the one balloon. The shine is perfect to add a interest to the card front without adding layers or other embellishments. Remember that it does take some time for the Crystal Effects to dry when you add a thicker layer.
I stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum and placed over the patterned paper to soften the patterned paper. I love how this turned out and I cannot wait to use this technique again.
