This in from Stampin Up! To hep you with shipping, use hostess code AW6ZGNYS on any order under $150.
Like you, we sincerely hoped that the Butterflies Thinlits Dies would arrive in time for Sale-A-Bration, and when that didn’t happen, again like you, we hoped they would be here in time for our Free Shipping promotion. Unfortunately, that is not going to be the case.
Originally they were scheduled to arrive by April 8; we then received notification from our supplier that although the ship had reached the west coast port, the container containing the Thinlits was still on the ship. We have since received verification from a third party that the vessel is still in the port–and though it docked on Friday, April 3, the container with the Thinlits has yet to be pulled.
Because the container has yet to be discharged from the vessel, the soonest the Butterflies Thinlits will arrive in our warehouse is the beginning of the week of April 13; our best estimate for orderability, based on this information, is April 15.
We realize you may be disappointed you were not able to purchase the Thinlits in time to receive Sale-A-Bration rewards–especially in the discounted bundles. Therefore, from the day Butterflies Thinlits are again available through April 30, we are bringing you two special offers:
- Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount–just $21.20!
- Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at the already-discounted price and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!
This is Vicki O’Dell’s card for the Karen Burniston Designing with Friends challenge! She chose the Circle Accordion die and made a beautiful thank you card. You can see the rest of her card here. Thanks, Vicki, for playing with me Hugs, Fran
This month’s Karen Burniston’s Designer Challenge is to create and invite a friend to create to an accordion album! My accordion album is the Rectangular Accordion featuring Brownie the Cow! I used some lovely Park Lane DSP and Brownie is happily eating flowers right off the page
Inside has Karen’s new Farm Greeting Clear Stamp and another Brownie. To reverse a character, simply cut them out and flip them over! Easy, if you’re using card stock (Basic Black and Soft Suede) and only a thinking if you’re using pretty patterned paper! The flower is the Boho Blossom punch with tiny pearls.
Tomorrow Vickie O’Dell, the Creative Goddess, will wow you with her creation! I “met” Vickie online and she is one of the most creative and upbeat people I know! She is all about DIY and gets involved in almost every craft out there! You can find her at http://vickiodell.com! I’ll link to her project tomorrow
Karen Burniston has come out with a new line of Pop It Ups – and they fit perfectly with the stamp set From the Herd! One the dies is the Barn Pop Stand (1021). I used it on the front of this card! And the doors slide open and closed!
Inside is Cheepers the Chicken (1023), Brownie the Cow (1022), and Virgil the Pig (1024)! And they are all celebrating
The party hat is from Props 2 and the balloons are from the Spiral Pull Card. What a fun, fun set of dies!

Thought I’d best get these up before it was too late! Hugs, Fran
Double your fun with this Berry Basket I made this one out of Coaster Board and it is sturdy, sturdy, sturdy! To do this, I cut the Berry Basket Die 4 times and assembled them 3/4 of the way – meaning on one piece for each basket I cut off one flap. Cut a piece of Coaster Board 3 x 6 and layer the 3/4 baskets on top of it. Line the inside with some of the Best Year Ever DSP and make a long edge to go around the basket. The handle is a 1/2 x 12 piece of Coaster Board. Decorate and fill with lots of Easter candy – it can handle it! Hugs, Fran
I seem to be focusing on laughter this week This is the Sweet Laughter set in the Spring Mini. This clean and simple card is a 4 1/4 x 11 Whisper White base with a 3 1/2 x 3 center piece stamped with the image and colored with Copic markers. I added some Sweet Sadie washi tape and a Subtle button – done! Clean and simple – and sweet! Hugs, Fran
Today is the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge for March – Funny Cards! I started with Whiskers the Cat, the Oval and Rectangular Accordion dies and Flashback Designer Series paper. Whiskers is looking pretty sharp in his 70’s garb and bling glasses! His scarf is the collar with a hand cut little piece at the end. “Groovy” is from Groovy Love.
Inside is a sentiment from one of the SU Photopolymer stamps – Bombs Away Birthday. It has some really fun sayings. You can “rock on” by heading over Facebook to Karen’s page to see what all the other designers have created this month!
