Happy St. Patrick's Day with Stampin' Up! MDS Project

I found this project on Pinterest and thought it was so cute that I just had to recreate it to have my sons pass out at school to celebrate St Patty's Day.  I thought about using my supplies to do it but with needing to make 18, it would have taken too long and a lot of my supplies.

So what to do?  My Digital Studio to the rescue!  I could quickly create this tag then print it out from my computer and have it saved for future use!!  I really am becoming more and more in love with this software.

Here's the finished project.
Close up

All 18 together!
I love Pinterest and I love having My Digital Studio in my bag of treats!!  Have a happy and safe St. Patrick's day on Sunday!

Stampin' Up! Easter Treats and Decorations


Q: I’d like to make some treats and decorations for Easter, but I’m not sure what. Do you have any suggestions?

A: Spring and Easter are coming up quickly! This time of year we think about the weather warming up and start looking forward to spring flowers. Spring also brings to mind holidays like Easter and Mother’s Day, and small gifts for teachers at the end of the school year. Stamping and paper crafting have virtually unlimited possibilities, but some of the most popular are tags, treats, and baskets. Read on to get your creativity blooming this spring!

Tags & Décor
Tags are a quick and easy way to personalize gifts, holiday tables, and Easter baskets. Tags can be made for:
• Spring themes with small stamps like Spring Sampler (#125510 wood, #125512 clear).
• Floral themes with the Secret Garden stamp set (#129141 wood, #129144 clear) and coordinating Secret Garden Framelits Dies (#129372). You can save when you bundle the stamps and framelits together in the Secret Garden Bundle (#131100 wood, #131099 clear)!
• Easter themes with the A Little Bit of Spring stamp set (#126009 wood, #126011 clear) or use punches to create punch-art bunnies, chicks, eggs, and more!
• Family events with the Amazing Family stamp set (#129189 wood, #129192 clear).

DIY Easter

A little special packaging makes even a simple and small gift feel special and heartfelt. Try creating a quick and pretty small box using the Fancy Favors Bigz XL die (#115965) and the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper (#129311). Fill it with homemade candy, small gifts, or seasonal candy like jelly beans or chocolate eggs. Or fill a Small Cello Bag (#102757) with homemade cookies and make a quick topper by folding the tag from the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit (#131395) in half. Decorate the tag topper with one of the beautiful flowers from the kit and stamp “just for you” using the stamp included in the kit and you have a very special gift!

basket sample

Store-bought baskets can be decorated with stamped embellishments, torn fabric bows, ribbon, and tags. Or create your own basket using card stock. This small basket features the Mixed Bunch stamp set (#125535 wood, #125537 clear) and the coordinating Blossom punch (#125603). The Dragonfly is created using Vellum card stock (#101856) that has been stamped and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#101930). The body is created from the Word Window (#119857) and 1/2” Circle (#119869) punches.

Let Your Creativity Bloom
I hope some of these ideas for tags, treats, and baskets have given you a few seeds to help your ideas grow and bloom into beautiful handmade gifts and décor this spring! As always, I love to brainstorm ideas with you and can demonstrate some spring-themed projects for you and your friends. Just get in touch with me!

Stampin' Up! Introduces Photopolymer Stamps

What is Photopolymer Stamps?

Check out this funny video of home office staff trying to guess what photopolymer is!

Stampin' Up! has searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And they've found it! I am excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps for sale! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options.
What makes them so great?
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity? 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.
They are clearly a great choice.

132956Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set
Recommend clear blocks A, B, G, F, and I. Purchase separately.
Includes 57 pieces. (Don't faint! This is a good overwhelming feeling.)

The Fine Print
  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, they hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time they don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
  • Available on all order types beginning March 1, 2013. 
  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.  
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.
