Petal Garden Lovely Wishes Card!

Card 113

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

On today’s card, I’m using the very pretty PETAL GARDEN DSP! The Petal Garden Paper Stack is a 6×6 pack with lots of lovely floral designs, but the pattern on the card above is my fave from the pack! The colors are Pool Party, Old Olive, and Calypso Coral, and I love the way they come together for an awesome design!

The stamp set used is the LOVELY WISHES Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog, and the DSP and Stamp Set are both on the Retiring Lists! Hurry if you want to shop from these lists, because these items are only available until May 31, or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚




Lots to Love Magical Day Thank You Boxes!

Project 46 (1)

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

Aren’t these boxes super-adorbs? I made them using the LOTS TO LOVE BOX Framelits Dies, and the MAGICAL DAY Stamp Set! (I also used the ALL THINGS THANKS Stamp Set for the sentiment!)

The Framelits, Magical Day Stamp Set, and 2017-2019 In Color Finely Woven Ribbon, are all on the Retiring Lists…and they are discounted! (They are also all still available as I’m writing this post, but remember: The items on the Retiring Lists are only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, or until May 31, whichever comes first!)

Here are some close-ups:

I used the MYTHS AND MAGIC Glimmer Paper to accent my stamped images, and the Glimmer Paper is also Retiring (and it’s also discounted!)

Want to make one of these boxes with me? Join me for LIVE Stampin’ Fun today on Facebook LIVE at 4PM, Eastern! I hope to see you then!

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚

Lovely as a Tree Gorgeous Grape Beautiful Day Card!

Card 111

Them: Bren, you can’t make a card with purple trees…
Me: Watch me! πŸ˜‰

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

So, as most of you know, my preorder for the new Annual Catalog arrived last week, and the Gorgeous Grape was calling my name! I had to use it, but on what? Nothing seemed to fit until I reached for my LOVELY AS A TREE Stamp Set! I know, I know…trees are green, not purple…except when they are purple! LOL!

Either way, I didn’t care because I love trees, and I love purple, and…a card was born! YAY!! You guys! Gorgeous Grape is simply…GORGEOUS!! Stampin’ Up! hit this one out of the park as far as I’m concerned! It’s the purple we’ve been waiting for, and it’s awesome!!

Now, you can’t order the Cardstock, Classic Stampin’ Pad, or Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill until June 1, but you’ll definitely want to get your hands on the brand new Brights Collection…In fact, all of the colors in the brand-new Color Revamp are amazing!! You guys are going to be so amazed when you hold these new colors in your hands, and mix them with your existing shades!

So, here are the order numbers for the stuff you can’t get yet:


You also can’t buy the LOVE WHAT YOU DO Stamp Set by itself until June 1, but you can buy it in an Early Release Bundle!

Oh, I almost forgot! To get the Gorgeous Grape ribbon, I used a Stampin’ Sponge on the Whisper White Organza Ribbon, and colored it myself! (Note: The ribbon is on the retiring list, so don’t wait if you want to add it to your supplies!)

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚

In Color Labeler Alphabet Gift Card Holder!

Project 45 (1)

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!!

Today I’m sharing a simple–but FUN–gift card holder using the new 2018-2020 In Color Collection, and the Stamparatus!! (Watch me on Facebook LIVE at 4PM, Eastern, to see how to use this tool with alphabet stamp sets!)

I mentioned this gift card holder is simple, and it is, but that’s one of the things I love about it! It can be used for any occasion that requires some celebration, or you can change the sentiment to fit your needs! It’s awesome!

As a demonstrator, I can pre-order certain products from the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog (this catty goes live June 1!), and because I love the new In Color Collection, I had to get the new 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon in all five colors, and the 2018-2020 6×6 Designer Series Paper! *I already had the In Color Stampin’ Pads, and the In Color Cardstock Pack from my Pre-Preorder! πŸ˜‰

Anyway, one look at the cute, dotted paper, and I knew a celebration was in order! This design of the DSP is my fave, but there are three other patterns that are super-cute, too, so you’ll definitely want this paper pack in your stash!

Here’s a pic of the project inside:

Project 45 (2)

You can’t order the Cardstock Pack, Ribbon, or DSP until June 1, but you can get the Stampin’ Pad Collection as part of the Share What You Love Early Release Flyer! (Check out the flyer, here!)

And don’t forget…Buy the GOTTA HAVE IT ALL Bundle, and you’ll get access to Bren’s Stampin’ Studio (my online classroom) for one month (starting June 1)–and four exclusive project videos!

With the exception of the Stamparatus*, here’s a list of the supplies you can’t order until June 1:

2018-2020 In Color Cardstock (#146973)
2018-2020 In Color DSP (#146963)
Lovely Lipstick 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146952)
Grapefruit Grove 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146954)
Pineapple Punch 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146953)
Call Me Clover 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146951)
Blueberry Bushel 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146950)

*The Stamparatus also has an order date of June 1, but I’ve listed it in the supply list for easy reference later!

Fresh Florals Big Meaning Thank You Cards!

Card 110

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

I made this card to serve two purposes…One, I needed thank you cards, and two, I wanted to use up some of my FRESH FLORALS DSP (Designer Series Paper!) You guys, the FRESH FLORALS DSP is a huge paper pack, and I’ve made a ton of things with it, but soon, it will be gone forever! Though the 2017-2019 In Color Collection is sticking around for another year, it’s time for the DSP to go, and it’s on the Retiring List! That means that once it’s gone, it’s gone for good, and I will definitely miss it!

The Stamp Set I used is also on the Retiring List! It’s called ONE BIG MEANING, but unlike the DSP and other items, retiring Stamp Sets are guaranteed until May 25! So, if you just want the Stamp Set, you have a little bit of time, but if you want anything else on the list, you need to start shopping now!

These cards go together quickly, so they are great for building up your stash!

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚
