Inspiration Saturday with Stampin’ Up!

Inspiration Saturday with Stampin’ Up!

Hello Paper Crafters! I’m Mercedes Weber, an avid paper crafter & a member of the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team member. I’m so excited to have a chance to share my creations with you!

I have a true confession to share before we get started…I have a deep love affair with pretty papers. So on that note let’s talk about one of the yummiest papers I have EVER seen, Stampin’ Up!’s Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper!


Trust me when I say you NEED this in your life. Seriously.

I am so in love and I knew my daughter would adore it too, so I created a little birthday ensemble for her.


Of course every birthday girl needs a pretty card. Did ya notice that beautiful gold scroll looking piece? Isn’t it uber fab?! It comes in an accessory pack that matches the Cupcakes & Carousels product suite! And those new doilies, yeah pretty much a must have too!


What 11-year-old doesn’t love a cupcake on their special day?!  I made a cute little cupcake box using the Gift Box Punch Board & decorated it with the papers from the 6×6 pad. Yep, the carousel horse & adorable banner are both cut from the designs in the stack!

So there you have a bit of inspiration for creating with this amazing little stack of awesomeness!

~ Mercedes Weber

    In the Occasions catalog I like the Window Box Thinlits dies.

  15. Marjorie Pinne January 7, 2017 at 7:35 pm

    I’m a pretty paper lover too! The Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Pack looks like a must have! So many cute things in the Occasions Catalog but one of my favorites is the Moon Baby set. Lots of baby showers ahead in the next year in our church so I’m sure I would put it to good use. Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway.

  16. barb macaskill January 7, 2017 at 7:38 pm

    Timeless Tags thinlets dies or the High Tide stamps are my favorite products from the Occasions Catalogue! I know I am supposed to pick one but I just couldn’t decide between the two of these! They both speak to my heart for different reasons! Either would make me a very happy gal!
    Cupcakes and Carousels is also a pretty great collection!
    Thanks for the chance to win it! 🙂

  84. Marianne January 9, 2017 at 9:53 am

    What a fun prize. I’ve also been drooling over the new catalog, especially since I have no access to any SU products here in Greece. I’ve seen several products that could help me achieve my crafty goals for 2017: do more colouring and send out more birthday and just because cards. Mediterranean Moments would be just perfect to do some colouring using watercolours or coloured pencils, while Tied Died would be great for creating quick backgrounds for cards for almost any occasion. Thanks for the chance to win this fab giveaway. Keeping my fingers crossed…

  85. KELLY A. CROWL January 9, 2017 at 10:25 am

    These papers are simply color-luscious! And how much fun are those stamps…I have to double cross my fingers on this give-away!

    I saw this in the catalogue it is nice to know the people behind the designs and what your thoughts were when you designed it. I just added this design suite to my wish list.
    Great design and thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

  88. Judy R January 9, 2017 at 1:03 pm

    New catalog and new products…exciting! Love that paper collection!

  89. Shelley P January 9, 2017 at 2:09 pm

    The stamp set would be a perfect touch for my photos of when we visited the Midway Fair at Fort Edmonton Park. I can see so many versatile uses for this set from invitation cards to party favours. I hope my name gets picked!

  90. Mai January 9, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    Gorgeous projects. I love the carousel and big shot sets. Thanks for the chance!

  91. Crafty Violet January 9, 2017 at 7:14 pm

    The dragon flies are my favorite. So many amazing sets!

  93. Mary Holshouser January 10, 2017 at 3:11 pm

    Love the carousel horse.
    I did some counted x-stitch pictures with
    carousel horses. I could use this
    set for small accent pieces to hand
    with the stitched ones.
    LIFT ME UP is one of my favorite sets
    in the Occasions catalog. Went on a
    balloon ride in Africa and loved it
    thanks for sharing.

  94. Lisa K January 10, 2017 at 4:40 pm

  110. Leanne January 13, 2017 at 2:28 pm

    Mercedes, love what you did with the adorable Carousels paper. I love the entire Occasions catalogue but the Beautiful You stamp set is my favourite. It will be a well loved stamp set long after it retires.

  111. Cheryl January 13, 2017 at 3:15 pm

    Always love their products but my favourite is the 12 inch paper cutter. Best on the market by far. Lovely prize as always.

  112. shartl January 13, 2017 at 4:04 pm

    I always love Stampin Up products and this set would be perfect for my 3 year old’s next birthday. My favorite from the new Occasions catalogue is Cake Crazy. I can always use birthday sets.

  115. Colleen Halpern January 13, 2017 at 7:50 pm

  121. Susan January 18, 2017 at 10:46 pm

    I LOVE the Cupcakes & Carousels Stamps and Dies; but, I also LOVE the Oh So Succulent and the Special Reason Stamp Set. It’s a toss up and couldn’t pick a FAVE between the two! =)
    Thanks for sharing with us!

  131. Vanessa January 26, 2017 at 11:19 am

    I have too many favorites to list only one, and ordered many of them. So does it count if I give a top 2 products??? I LOVE this paper stack – cupcakes and carousels- I already used up my whole stack, therefore need another one. I haven’t purchased the stamp set but love the Suite Sentiments that match it, so many of these stamps match all the other suites! I love it all!!!
    Beautiful work Mercedes! I’m a followers of your blog. I often case your cards as well. Thanks so much for the inspiration!! be well – Vanessa

    Again soooo adorable…if only!

  139. Mary January 26, 2017 at 1:36 pm

    I’m always looking for sentiments to put on the inside of cards, so Sending Thoughts would be a great set to have!

    Just ONE favorite? There are so many, but if I had to pick one, it’s the Everyday Hero stamp set.

  148. Jenny Pierce January 28, 2017 at 8:15 am

    My favorite is Underground Designer Paper and Nailed it! Great for masculine cards.

  149. Gloria Sperring January 28, 2017 at 3:39 pm

    I haven’t seen this DSPS in person yet. Everyone seems to be using this DSPS, so maybe I’ll try it to! I love what I’ve seen so far.

  150. Nesa Wilson January 28, 2017 at 6:44 pm

    Love how you used the Carousel Horse set to make a Minature Carnival out of the cupcake box. Very “Out of the Box” creation. And now, deciding which of the new catalog products is my fav is hard…yet I should say that “Sealed With Love Bundle” tops as my favorite. Thanks!

  151. GingerGrogan January 28, 2017 at 8:00 pm

    I have MANY favorites from the new Ocassions Catalog. I’m really enjoying the Mediterranean Moments stamp set right now. I would love to win this set. Thanks for sharing your awesome creativity.

    Love what you did with the carousel horse set. The cupcake box project looks like a Miniature Carnival. So “Out of the Box” creation.
    My favorite among others from the Occasion Catalog is the “Sealed with Love Bundle”. Thanks SU!!

  153. Nesa Wilson January 28, 2017 at 11:44 pm
