If you are familiar with the Stampin' Up! Community, I would take advantage of items that weigh most to ship, such as cardstock (page 135-139 Annual Catalog), Clear Block Bundle (pg 83 AC 165674), or the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine (149653). 

Free Shipping is the time when I purchase the most cardstock.
By far, your best purchase is to join my team. You get an instant 20% off every purchase, including stamp sets, dies, designer series paper, adhesives, embellishments, embossing, ink (stamp pads, markers, blends), packaging, punches, tools, and storage! You are not required to sell Stampin' Up! or hold demonstrations, although you will receive free business supplies already included in your kit. The kit also includes a complementary Paper Pumpkin Kit. See the Starter kit special for details.

Two New Cards using 2024-2025 Products in the NEW Annual Catalog

 I created these card as part of a stamp-along during our online THE IMPECKABLE STAMPERS (TIPS) team meeting. Since some of the products are new, I am unable to link them to the new catalog until May 1.  I'll return then to complete the product list.

 I started out with the returning Pretty   in Pink cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2"   scored at 4-1/4" on the 8-1/2" side.

 I layered on 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"   NEW Unbounded Beauty DSP using   Stampin' Seal.

 Next I stamped the Stippled Roses using   Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the 3   1/2" x 4 Petunia Pop cardstock. 

 Next, I stamped a greeting from the   Unbounded Love stamp set onto   the 3/4"  x 2 3/4" banner and cut a fish   tail on one end. 

 From there, I added black Classic Matte   Dots to finish it off. 

 Next is my horizontal card using the same dimensions. 

 I started out with the NEW Peach Pie   cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" scored at 4-   1/4" on the 8-1/2" side.

 I layered on 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"   NEW Unbounded Beauty DSP using   Stampin' Seal.

 Next I tapped the 3 1/2" x 4" Blackberry   Bliss cardstock with my Embossing   Buddy that's part of the Embossing   Additions Tool Kit (159971), then   stamped the stems and the Rustic Crate   using Versamark and White Stampin'   Emboss Powder. I used my Heat Tool to   set the powder  on the cardstock. 

 Next, I stamped a greeting from the  Unbounded Love stamp set onto the  Basic White 3/4" x 2 3/4" banner and cut a fish tail on each end. 

From there, I added Petunia Pop Shimmer Gems from the 2024-2026 In Color Shimmer Gems pack  to finish it off. 

I hope you like the cards.

 Legendary Ride Birthday

I pulled out the All About Autumn 6 x 6 DSP to create this card. I mentioned yesterday in my Autumn Leaves Birthday post that I'm working on masculine cards for the men in our church. It's wonderful to know how much joy it brings my church members when they receive a card letting them know they are thought about and loved. I thank God for the opportunity to serve Christ and spread His love around the world.  The list of supplies and the instruction link are provided below.

 Autumn Leaves Birthday

I created several of these cards for masculine birthdays. Since I make cards for everyone in my church, I need to make several at a time and it's easier to do if I make 10 - 20 of them at once. For this card I used some of the products in the new September - December 2013 Mini Catalog. Some are All About Autumn 6X6 Designer Specialty Designer Series Paper, Them Bones DSP, and Autumn Leaves Stamp Set. All items are listed below, and a link to the instructions are also below.
