Gotta Have It All Bundle - Last Chance!

Love What You Do Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

Today is the last day you can order the Gotta Have it All Bundle.  Some of the components will be available in the new catalog and some will not be.

 

Above is a card I showed earlier. I even did a quick video on the fun fold

These were the card gut supplies the girls could request for the month of May. What are *card guts you ask?

Every month (unless something happens I have no control over) I do a virtual meeting in our private FaceBook group (no matter where you live we can all take part in it) and I start it out with a FaceBook live where I do a make n take, then we continue on chatting for an hour. If the girls miss the meeting no worries, the video can be watched later as is the meeting chat.

The team can request a Card Gut packet if they want, and then they upload their card in our group. I love seeing what they do with the supplies. *Card guts are the supplies needed to make a card, cardstock, DSP, ribbon, etc. Nothing stamped of course. They can alter, add, subtract from the items I send them, it just needs to be current and only Stampin' Up!

Here are the fun cards the girls did with their card guts.

19 years!

Pomp & Circumstance Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

Time flies I will tell you that. We have had several graduations lately so I made a couple fun cards. This is a retired stamp set but I have kept it just for this use. I don't keep many retired sets but sometimes you just gotta right? What is your favorite retired stamp set that you have kept?

Pomp & circumstance inside Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

Here is the inside. Too fun.

These kids just grew up so fast.

Another thing that went fast.   Today is my 19th Anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. We have done and seen so many things since that first day. Heck I remember when my starter kit was to be delivered and UPS did not know how to find us (we had this wonky address when we first moved to our house in Queen Creek...now called San Tan Valley.) I was freaking cause if I did not get my order that Friday it would not get here till Tuesday cause of Memorial weekend. I ended up meeting the UPS guy in the dark on the road. Thank goodness they know where we are now...and we had our wonky address fixed.

I am getting stuff ready for my retired stamp sets and accessories sale on June 23. Make sure to let me know if you plan to come by.

Don't forget the end of this current catalog is almost here, do not miss out on anything you have had your eye on. Especially those fun bundles. Bundles that are in the catalog now will not be bundled together in the new catalog.

Christmas Card of the Month Starts in June!

Back by popular demand!! These classes have been a hit the last few years and June is the first round of cards for this year. 
 
I will be back June 1 when I can share the stamp set we will be using.
 
Didn't it feel great to have your Christmas cards done early?   

Details (will be filled in with more details when I can):

What a great way to get your Christmas cards done stress free.  Each month you will do 10 identical cards, but each month will be a different card. Class fee is due no later than June 15 or while supplies last.

The Christmas Card of the Month Class in the Mail is $30.00 per month and this will include one completed card for you to copy from (this way I will not be doing a video or a PDF like my other Class in the Mail classes) and supplies for 10 matching cards and envelopes mailed to you by priority mail.  You will use your own inks and stamps at home (you can tweak the card with what you have at home), nothing will be stamped on your supplies.  If anything is needed in regards to punches or the Big Shot those will be done ahead of time and in your packet.
 
Let me know you want to order the Christmas Card of the Month Class in the Mail and I will email you the paypal link.

If you want to use the stamp set we will be using this month on your card it is (to be announced) you can choose to have me send that to you with your supplies for an additional (to be announced) or you can order it through my store along with anything else you may want to order.

Hole in One - Stamparatus Tip

Animal outing stamparatus tip Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

The other day I showed this cute Animal Outing card and I totally forgot to tell you how I did the giraffe image so easy when I had to do 34 cards. I used my Stamparatus!!! Yes folks and you too can get yours June 1.

Here is how I did it. I learned this little trick from my friend Linda Heller, thanks Linda!!

Stamparatus tip hole in one Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

I cut a piece of cardstock and then I framelitted out the circle that I would be using for my giraffe. This now is the template. I used one of the stamparatus magnets to hold it in place. The other one is safely tucked underneath in it's special spot.

My giraffe is attached to the plate on the left in the spot I will want to stamp him on my circle...you can see the one above the stamparatus I did as my tester...perfect!!

Stamparatus tip hole in one Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

So I put my circle in the template hole. Then I inked up my giraffe and then I closed my stamparatus plate over the circle.

Stamparatus tip hole in one Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

Perfect...now do that 33 more times...open, ink, close...open, ink, close...you get the idea.

What fun eh?

Animal Outing - Sticking Your Neck Out!

Animal outing Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

This weekend while I watched the Royal Wedding (I DVR'd it- I got up for Charles and Diana - I am too old to get up that early now). I worked on my swap. This is the fun card I did.

This uses a new set called Animal Outing.  We got this fun set when we went to OnStage in April. It also has a kangaroo, a koala, a rhino and a bird and some greetings, oh and a frog too.

Animal outing Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

I know I will definitely be using this set for one of my Classes in the mail, it is adorable.

I also will be starting my Christmas Card of the Month class in June, so watch for that sign up.
