There is always something to be thankful for

 
I love this sentiment and the fact that we offer a punch to make a quick and easy card like this in minutes!

 
As our Sale-a-Bration Event for 2015 is winding down (it ends March 31), here's yet another card idea using the You Brighten My Day stamp set and the banner punch, along with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder. The stamp set is one you may select for free with a $50 purchase of SU! product (anything in either current catalog, or the Clearance Rack).
 
Yesterday, I helped out with a food drive to fill the local food bank's shelves. Today, I'm hauling auction items to my studio. I hope you enjoy the day!

Thanks for Fabulous Four stamps

 
I've been working on building my supply of thank-you cards, so this quick and easy one is awesome!
It's been a busy couple of weeks for me. I've done everything from picking up litter with my hubby on our 20th anniversary a week and a half ago, to making a scrapbook for my Lions Club (and it won first place!). Today, I'll be at a local grocery store collecting money and food for the food bank.

 
The sentiment is from the Fabulous Four stamp set, which offers three more all-occasion greetings. I added a knot of Crushed Curry ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (a Sale-a-Bration freebie you can earn, too, with a $50 order by March 31), and three punched circles from Best Year Ever designer paper (another SAB freebie).
Enjoy your weekend and come back soon! I've got many more cards to share over the next week.

Weekly Deals

Hello! I'm a day late with these Weekly Deals, but you still have thru Monday night to order any of them. Please order via my Online Store at http://therubberroom.stampinup.net. Thanks!

In other Stampin' Up! news, the Blendabilities (alcohol markers) are no longer available in the catalog or as a Sale-a-bration freebie. As many as 30-40 percent have issues with tiny holes in the tips that allow the markers to dry up fairly quickly. Please check any Blendabilities you may have. You may return what you've purchased for either a refund or another product. If you received the markers as a SAB freebie, you may exchange them for another SAB item (and there are several new additions - such as embossing folders, For Being You stamp set, In Color twine/button accessory pack, etc.

My Digital Studio hasn't been as successful as hoped, so that program and supporting sites will end in mid-May 2015. If you have any questions about it, please ask me.

And have a wonderful rest of the week!

No one measures up to you

 
Sweet Laughter stamps, found in the 2015 Occasions Catalog, have great graphics and sayings, like the ones above.
 
 
There's are Happy Mother's Day and the definition of mother stamps, among others, but I wanted to keep this card "open" so I could send it to anybody - friends, family, etc. This quick and easy card was a design from my latest 20-card class. One ink pad (Early Espresso), one designer paper (Park Lane), one punch (2-1/2" circle), one stamp set and "BAM," you're done. Have a wonderful day!

Love is Kindness

 
I adore Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky colors together. And this single stamp called Love is Kindness is pretty great too. 
 
 
I started by embossing the front of card with a folder that is retired (and I sold mine to my mother-in-law after this class!). Using a 2" wide piece of Whisper White, I punched the top with the Ornate Tag Topper punch (in the 2015 Occasions Catalog), and stamped the image in Jet Black StazOn. I used markers for the flowers - Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, and Soft Sky, then adhered a vintage button with mini glue dots.

You made my day

 
Bright colors make me happy! So does free stuff. This designer paper, ribbon and stamp are each available to you for free with a $50 order thru March 31 for our Sale-a-Bration Event.
 
I started with a Whisper White card, and added a 3" x 4" piece of Best Year Ever dsp (item 138633)with a knot of Calypso Coral ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (item 138634). I added a 1/2" x 4" strip of Coastal Cabana on the left.
 
The sentiment is from the Best Day Ever stamp set, which comes in wood, clear or photopolymer. I stamped it in Coastal Cabana, punched it out using the 1-3/4" circle punch, and added rhinestones.

Our friendship is a very happy thing

 
I just think this fat little bird is so cute. You can choose A Happy Thing stamp set during our Sale-a-Bration Event for FREE when you place a $50 order.
 
 
I started with a Blushing Bride card, adding a 2" x 4" piece of Flowerpot designer series paper on the left. The bird was stamped in Jet Black StazOn, and colored with an aquapainter and ink pads Soft Sky and Crushed Curry, and a Crumb Cake marker for the branch.

Weekly Deals

It's a beautiful, sunny day here! I hope you're off to a great start this week. I've got some discounted Weekly Deals. And I have an order going in tomorrow (Wednesday). So if you'd like something on this list, email or text me and I'll throw it on the order so you only pay 10% shipping instead of a minimum $6.95 (locals only, and you'll need to pick up your items at my house).

Buy your own present!

 
If you have teen-agers, like I do, they often just ask for money for birthdays and Christmas gifts. So this stamp set - B.Y.O.P. - may help you with your cards!

 
For this card, I added a little texture, a pattern and some ribbon with the simple banners. This was a design from my 20-card class a couple of days ago.
