I'm sending off my own First of July Fireworks this year! Why? Because it's my Stampaversary - anniversary of joining Stampin' Up! It's been one great year.....I've met new people, had many laughs, made many more cards than usual, and learned how to blog! I think that is worth celebrating and I want you to celebrate with me!
In honor of my Stampaversary I'm going to run a few specials! The first special involves the Daisy Lane Bundle. Check it out HERE or at the end of this post. The bundle includes the stamp set and the new MEDIUM daisy punch. This punch fits the smaller of the two daisy stamps. (The large daisy can be punched with the larger daisy punch that is sold separately.) I love this bundle and I've made quite a few cards with it so far. Here are a few!
So here is the deal! Buy the Daisy Lane Bundle from me and I'll send you three card kits...all the supplies to make one each of the cards pictured above except the daisy will be the medium one to fit your punch. Everything will be cut out for you and directions will be provided so you can stamp- with your own ink-, punch and complete the cards! (If you'd like, I'll add your order to mine and then your shipping and handling are free.) With this offer, when you receive your stamp set and punch, you'll also be ready to make three cards! You won't have to search for a card to make. So......
You could look at Pinterest and see what comes up for Daisy Lane Bundle! There are quite a few beautiful cards! Check it out HERE!
Let me recap for you! You order the Daisy Lane Bundle from me for $35 +tax. If I put in the order for you, I will pay the shipping and handling. When I deliver/mail the order to you, I'll include the card kits to make the three cards pictured. The paper will be cut to the correct size. The circle will be provided, ribbon included, envelopes in the kits, too. You will follow my instructions (using your ink) and before you know it, you will have created 3 cards!
How can you resist? Don't wait too long! This offer lasts until July 14th- I'm going to put the order in on the morning of July 15th.
Email, text or message me on Facebook....just get your order in! I'd hate for you to miss out!
So, share in my celebration, won't you?

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
Recently I spent a few days on Cape Cod with a good friend. The weather was perfect! Perfect for crafting our days and evenings away! While we did get outside for a few walks and some great food, we spent the majority of the cool, cloudy days digging into cards that we've been wanting to make for a while!
I recently offered a Paper Share of 10 new Designer Series Papers (DSP) and of course, I kept one for myself. Well, I have to confess....I am in love with having 6 x 6 papers ready to use and at my fingertips. I am using them faster than I can say, "Let's order more!"
One of the packs that I was attracted to immediately is "See a Silhouette" as it's bright and has a batik style to it. I've already used it to make this birthday card. (page 134 in the catalog.)
Next I chose a piece with flowers on it and a piece of paper with leaves on it. The white edges around them make it so easy to cut them out.
I hope you don't think I was cheating but I CASEd a card from the 2019-20 Annual Catalog. You can see it on p.132. (THERE ARE SO MANY INSPIRING CARDS IN THE CATALOG. Think of it as an idea book too!) I adhered the flowers first and then tucked the leaves behind them. It was done in a snap! I did add a sentiment directly on the card front. I thought a simple "Hello" (from May's Paperpumpkin kit) would do the trick.
So, here's a beautiful card with just a bit of DSP and one stamp! Simple and beautiful.
So, try this with any pretty paper you have! Snip out part of it and layer it back together to make a card! Then send it off to brighten someone's day!
See the list of products I used below!
I don't know about you but I love butterflies. I love that they represent transformation and new life! I love how beautiful, gentle and colorful they are! I think they are delicate and strong! Isn't that a great combination! And it comes with a punch!
I have seen so many wonderful cards made with the Butterfly Gala stamp set from Stampin' Up! so I had to give it a try! Here's what the stamp set looks like:
So with the trusty help of my daughter, Michelle, we decided to play with the stamp set a bit! She came up with this beautiful card and I convinced her to make a video. Here is the card she made:
So watch the video and see how easy it is to do some #simplestamping- just ink, stamp and paper. Well, ok, we did add a little bling!
My apologies.....I can't post the video here! If you want to see the video, you'll have to watch it on Chat'n'Craft/Lorraine Tierney on Facebook! I can't seem to upload it here. CLICK HERE to view it.
It was not too difficult to stamp the butterflies in memento ink and then line up the solid color stamp to fill in the butterfly. We did practice on one card before it lined up well, but don't worry...you can do it! I did provide you with a list of supplies we used, in case you were wondering!
Now, go do a little stamping!
Let's share some paper!
If you are like me, you love all of the pretty papers in the Stampin' Up! catalog. These Designer Series Papers (or DSP for short) are so pretty. They come in packages of 12 sheets and are usually 2 pieces of 6 double sided designs. In the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog these packages cost between $11.50 and $14.50. (These are found on pages 165-167 of the new catalog.) If you wanted to buy all 12 packages, you'd have to spend $147!! That's a lot of money and a lot of paper to use!
I have a better idea, I think! Share some paper with me and your friends. I have picked out 10 packages of beautiful papers. I will cut them all into 6 x 6 squares. You will get 2 piece of 6 double sided designs - just like in a full pack but they will be smaller.
(If you are unsure of how to use 6 x 6 pieces of paper, click here to check out my 6 x 6 paper board on Pinterest.
So, back to the delicious pretty papers! You will get 120 pieces of 6 x 6 paper! And the best part- you get these 120 pieces of paper for $30 ( plus shipping if I mail them to you.)
Here are thumbnails of 8 of the 10 Designer Series Papers I will include in the "share." (Two papers- See a Silhouette DSP and Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper cannot be posted yet but are pictured in the catalog.)
Aren't you excited? 120 papers for $30 dollars. I will cut and carefully package them for you! Please let me know by June 5 if you would like to participate! I'm afraid to wait longer for fear of items selling out! These are that beautiful!
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below if you would like to purchase. I don't think you'll want to miss these!
