Build A Banner.......

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a great day.
Last night I decided to take out my Build a Banner Simply Created Kit.
I love this kit.
There are so many possibilities with it.

Here is my first little banner.

This cute Christmas Joy Banner used only 3 pendants from the kit.

I used the hexagon punch for the center and a decorative button.

I used the same paper to make the two Christmas flowers.
I used the hexagon punch to make these flowers.

 Didn't my banner turn out cute!!!

Two Birthday Cards...

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a great weekend.
I needed to make two quick birthday cards yesterday.

Here's what I came up with.

I just stuck the card right on top of the gift box.
I used designer series paper to decorate the box too!
Cute eh!!!

This second card had to be made in record time. 
I didn't have as much time to embellish it.
But its still cute, I think!

Have you checked out my store lately!

There are some really cool new products out.

Like the new single stamps.

Check out the flyer here.

Have a great day!

A few Christmas Tags!

Hi everyone,

I made a few Christmas Tags with my Stampin' Up! papers.
I just had an hour or so to play with my stuff.
Here are my tags.

I used the Chalk Talk dies from the Annual Catalogue to cut the tags,
the Christmas Messages Stamps and
the Season of Style Designer Series Paper
from the Holiday Catalogue.

These tags don't have ribbons yet.
I'm still waiting for my ribbons to come in.

But I thought I would share them.
They are so cute.

If you are interested in placing an order with me.
Email me and let me know.
I will place an order in on the 15th of August.

New Holiday Catalogue and more!!!!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well.

I wanted to share the new Holiday Catalogue with you.
There are some amazing products in it.
You can order items from this catalogue in my online store.

Also, I plan to put an order in on August 15th.
If you want to save on shipping, just send me an email at ariane.kring(at)gmail(dot)com
or call me and we can bundle the orders together.

We also have a bunch of new products this month.

These are amazing.
I'm ordering both in my next order.


They've been called flip cards, flip flop cards, swing cards, and more-but they have always been a bit tricky to create. Not anymore! Our amazing new Thinlits Card Dies cut and score to create a card that flips in just one step.
133479Label Card Thinlits Die$40.95
133480Circle Card Thinlits Die$40.95
Available August 1, 2013
There are some products you just have to see in action before you realize how much you need them, right? This is one of them! Plan to feature these dies in your events and share the video. When your customers see what they can do, they will place their orders.
These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards. (The Circle Card Thinlits Die comes with 10 total pieces; the Label Card Thinlits Die comes with nine total pieces.)
With the number of dies you're getting, plus the die that creates the card itself, the price is a great value-especially to create an interactive card!
  • Promote mass production of these impressive "flip" cards. They would make great announcements, invitations, or Christmas cards. You can even help your customers select all the supplies they will need to create their cards.
  • These Thinlits Card Dies will be available at least through the 2013-2014 catalog year, so you can feel confident investing in them and promoting them for many months to come.  
  • The main shape in the cards (circle and label) can work with a lot of our stamp images so you can create tons of different kinds of cards using many different stamp sets. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started:
Label Card Thinlits Die (item 133479):
  • Happy Day Stamp Set (item 130294 W item 130297 C)
Circle Card Thinlits Die (item 133480):
  • Worth the Wait Stamp (item 131094 W)
  • Five-Way Flower Stamp (item 131088 W)
Both card dies pair well with:
  • Oh, Hello Stamp Set (item 131931 W item 130733 C)
  • Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set (item 131341 W item 131344 C)
  • Really Good Greetings Stamp Set (item 130330 W item 130333 C)
  • Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set (item 130324 W item 130327 C)
  • These dies also work well with our new magnetic platform (item 130658) so you can place the dies exactly where you want them!

Then there's the Undefined Stamp carving kit...

How exactly do you carve a stamp? Watch the video for a tutorial.
Intrigued? We know you want to get your hands on the kit and start carving your own masterpieces. Here are the item numbers you'll need (we suggest adding a refill kit on your first order . . . trust us, you're gonna want it).

I got great mail and a new card!

Hi everyone,

I got my order from Stampin' Up! yesterday.
It was a big order.
But, I've been working so hard lately, I thought I deserved it.

Since I was off work tonight, I dug in and played with my new stuff.

I bought the new Six Sided Sampler bundle of stamps and hexagon punch.
This is one of my favorite sets in the new annual catalog.
I hope you like the card I made.
The ribbon is from my stash.
It matched perfectly.

I hope to make more stuff soon.



Don't forget to check out the new Holiday Catalog.
