Bear Hugs Stamp Set & Framelits, Affectionately Yours Designer Paper, Floral Affection Embossing Folder #stampinup


  1. The Watermelon Wonder Cardstock (138334) Card Base is 4 1/4" x 11
  2. I embossed the lower edge with half of the Floral Affection Embossing Folder (141713)
  3. I stamped Happy Birthday (from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set 140675) in Early Espresso Classic Ink (126974) on the 2 3/4" X 4" Whisper White Cardstock (100730) and Matted it with a piece of 3" x 4 1/4" Early Espresso(119686) and adhered it to the front of the card just above the embossing.
  4. I stamped the bear in Early Espresso Classic Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock (120953) and cut it out with the Coordinating Bear Hugs Framelits (140275) and attached him with Dimensionals just above the Happy Birthday.
  5. I stamped the little skirt and bow on the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (141632) and cut them out with the coordinating framelits and finished the card off by applying them with glue dots.

Don't forget that the Bear Hugs Bundle where you can save 15% on the Stamp Set and Framelits ends Tuesday!

You Can Have it All, See How
(96 new Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers)

Paper Sampler

The new 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Catalog will be out in less than 5 Days!

  • Do you love patterned paper as much as me?
  • Would you enjoy having every pattern at your finger tips?
  • Would love to have it all?

To have all the new Designer Papers would cost over $200...

But you can have 96 pieces of 6 x 6 for only $26.80 plus $6.80 Priority Shipping (includes insurance and tracking).

Here is how it works. 

  • When 8 of you sign up for a paper sampler, I order one of every New Designer Paper (Click Here to view List and Coordinating Colors)
  • It is Shipped to me.
  • Then I cut it all up 8 ways
  • Sort it out
  • And this year I am placing them in a great little clear storage box.
  • I will mail them out Priority Mail
  • You will have a 6 x 6 piece of each of the New papers for creating amazing projects.    

How to Order:

  • I will send a confirmation email and a PayPal invoice.
    I usually answer within 24 hours, so if you don’t get a reply, email again just in case it got lost in cyberspace! 
  • Spots are limited and will be on a first come first serve basis.  When one Sampler fills up with 8 participants, I will start another.  The samplers that are filled I will place the order ASAP on June 1st when we are able to place our first orders from the new catalog.  It will take about 7-10 days to arrive and a couple of days for me to package it up and get in the mail.  I hope to have them out by the 15th of June*.

*Shipping Times will vary depending on when Paper Sampler Spots are filled.  

If for some reason a paper pack is back-ordered (BO), I will email you immediately to let you know of the delay.  You can choose to have me wait to ship it all together once the BO paper arrives or pay additional postage to ship the BO paper separately when it arrives.  Keeping my fingers crossed that no paper will be on back-order!

It is so much fun to have a little of it all for creating a variety of cards!  Hope you join in the Fun!

This offer only good through Patsy Waggoner and I can only ship in the US.

I love the Linen Thread to tie together the bunch of grapes.  These look juicy enough to eat right off the page!
