Blog under redevelopment

Rebuilding my website

A year ago, visitors lost the ability to comment on my posts. I'm restoring that option, and I have to restore the theme, layout, and material I had on my site before. 

Though I backed my Blog up, it still takes some work to get it back to where it was and make improvements.

Thank you for your patience while I rebuild.

 Our May Paper Pumpkin Kit is
Exploring In Color

I'm very excited to get my hands on our new colors. Sometimes masculine cards can be challenging for me, but this Paper Pumpkin Kit makes it easy!


This kit features outdoors-themed cards in our new 2023–2025 In Colors. It’s an easy way to introduce your customers to new colors. And then when they fall in love with the colors, you can show them all of the In Color products in the annual catalog and help  them start creating their own projects. Reach out to your current and past subscribers and let them know that whether they love color, the outdoors, or both, this is a kit they’ll want to get!


This kit includes a special bonus: FREE STICKERS! Look around and you’ll see stickers everywhere—on water bottles, laptops, coolers. And, of course, on paper crafting projects! It’s an on-trend extra that your customers will love.

This kit includes:

  • All the supplies you need to create 9 card, 3 each of 3 designs, plus 9 coordinating envelopes.
  • A 7-piece all-occasion stamp set that celebrates good friends and great adventures!
  • 1 Copper Clay (new In Color!) Classic Stampin’ Spot.
  • Twine and die-cut accents
  • FREE stickers to put on your projects or anything you want—water bottles, laptops, coolers, and more!
  • Finished card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm).
  • Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colors: Boho Blue, Copper Clay, Daffodil Delight, Moody Mauve, Mossy Meadow, Pebbled Path, Wild Wheat

  • Subscribe to the April Paper Pumpkin Kit between 11 April 2023 and 10 May 2023 

    Note: Supplies may be limited toward the end of the subscription period.

 Slimline Birthday Card using Cottage Rose
and Beautiful Shapes Dies

This card's finished size is 8-1/2" tall x 3-1/2" wide.
Cut the cardstock 7" x 8-1/2" and score on the long side at 3-1/2"
After creating this card, I realized the DSP I chose was no longer available. It was a HOST DSP in the soon retiring Stampin' Up! 22-23 Academic Catalog. Several coordinating DSPs would make a beautiful card! Go ahead and give it a try. Please tag me #SUtheresatucker if you post a photo of it.

For this card, I CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, page 113.
If you create a card that is an exact match or if the design was created by someone else, it's always a good idea to mention them when you share.

The recipe for this card is below; you can also find it on my Stampin' Up! Business website at

Framed Florets w/ Very Best Occasions 

Recipie link below

I created another card using the Framed Florets bundle (162407 pg 65 January - May 1, 2023, Mini Catalog. For the greeting, I used the Very Best Occasions stamp set (159871, a carryover from the July - Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. You can search for these items by name or number in my online store. (The link opens in a new window.)

I love the coordinating stamp sets with dies and punches and Designer Series Paper with colors that match our ink and cardstock for perfect coordination. We increasingly come out with Designer Series Paper that matches the dies in our bundles that also coordinate with our stamps.  Here's what I mean.

See how well the dies go line up perfectly with the Designer Series Paper easily.  These dies are part of the Framed Florets Bundle. Lining dies up with the Fitting Florets DSP images is a breeze.

These strips of Stampin' Up! cardstock colors, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Soft Succulent, Polished Pink & Early Espresso show how well these colors coordinate.

Of course the Blushing Bride, and Balmy Blue cardstock that I used to create my card coordinates just as well. 

Here's a link to the recipe and cardstock dimensions. 

Thank you for stopping by to take a look.

Framed Florets Birthday 

I created this card for my friend Darla.  The Framed Florets Bundle is from the January - June 2023 Mini Catalog. I used retired New Horizon's DSP for the panel layered onto the Orchid Oasis Cardstock. You can use any designer series paper that coordinates. If you'd like a list of the Stampin' Up! coordinating colors, I added a link below.

 Adorable Owls Birthday Card

Isn't the Adorable Owls (J-F Sale-a-bration) stamp set adorable? I apologize I didn't get this up sooner.

Note: I used retired Playful Alphabet Dies to cut out "ONE", but you have two options. You can use the current Alphabet A La Mode Dies Set (Jan - May 1 2023 Mini catalog) 160750 pg61 or you could stamp the word with the current Alphabest Stamp Set (2022-2023 AC) 158886 pg 115. If you use the Alphabest set, I would stamp the word then punch it out or use a die to cut rather than trying to cut out each letter. 


I lost access to my Blog for a while. I have it back now, but I wanted to let you know this is why I have not been posting. 

Secondly, God has had me pull back on my business because there's something else He wants me to do. I'm still a demonstrator, but I am not currently holding Facebook Lives. 

I've also learned that you cannot leave comments on my posts. I'll try to fix that next weekend (March 25-26). I apologize for the inconvenience.

 Something Fancy

This is the second card I created for a Demonstrator Only swap. The card uses one of the new January 5 - May 1, 2023 Mini Catalog stamp sets.   

I used Mint Macaron, Petal Pink, Balmy Blue, White, and Night of Navy.  You can see the list of items I used at 

I am happy to add the measurements and instructions if someone emails me at
