Stampin' Up! Scalloped Tag Topper Gift Tags!

I don't know about you, but June is always a busy gift-giving month for me.

It's second only to December.

Not only are there high school and college graduations and open houses, but I swear that most of my family and friends were born in June!

So, with the gifts, and cards, comes the need for gift tags. Although I love almost every stamp set in the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog, I decided to use just 4 to make these three adorable gift tags.

Let me apologize ahead of time for the grid paper back ground. I usually take my photos outside, but it was sprinkling.

How to Get FREE Stamp Sets AND Extra Stampin' Rewards in June!



Do you like free stamp sets?  Perhaps the easiest way to check off items from your wishlist from the 2016 Annual Catalog is to purchase Stampin’ Up!’s Starter Kit – and earn TWO FREE STAMP SETS (of your choice) at the same time.  Stampin’ Up!’s Starter Kit is the Ultimate Bundle – for just $99, you get to pick $125 of YOUR CHOICE of product and FREE SHIPPING on your Starter Kit.  After you join, you earn 20% off any orders you place while you are still active (with potential to earn bigger discounts).

Click on this flyer to read more about this incredible promotion:


Here’s some more information about this exciting promotion (including some great reasons to be a part of my amazing community):

  • This promotion runs from June 1, 2016  through June 30, 2016.
  • When you buy the Starter Kit during June, you can choose two stamp sets from the new annual catalog to be included in the Starter Kit for free.  That’s a value of up to $104!  This promotion is specifically for stamp sets – bundles and kits are not included.
  • You have no obligation to buy another thing after you join, and you never have to sell to anyone else if you choose not to.
  • When you join Diamond Village Stampers, my Stampin’ Up! team, you are part of a great group of stampers.  Our team has lots of fun with loads of inspiration and great friendships.
  • We love hobbyists who enjoy the discount on their Stampin’ Up! products and support those who want to host events and sell to others.  We welcome new joins and former demonstrators to our group.
  • I host monthly meetings with inspiration and giveaways. 

If you have questions, please email me at  I’d be happy to chat with you if you are interested in joining.  When you are ready to join, you can click here to start building your Starter Kit: CLICK HERE STARTING JUNE 1



We all love free stuff, right?  With purchases greater than $150, we can earn Stampin’ Rewards that are used to pick up free products of our choice.  In June, Stampin’ Up! is sweetening the Stampin’ Rewards deal by offering an additional $35 for orders greater than $350.  If that’s not an incentive for you to place that large of an order, maybe it’s incentive enough to gather some friends together to combine orders?

Here’s a quick rundown of how beneficial this can be using some examples of three different price points:

  • A $350 order earns $42 of Stampin’ Rewards.  $42 + $35 = $77 in June
  • A $400 orders earns $48 of Stampin’ Rewards.  $48 + $35 = $83 in June
  • A $450 order earns $63 of Stampin’ Rewards + one 1/2 off item.  $63 + $35 = $98 + one 1/2 off item in June

How helpful is that for checking items off your wishlist?!  Here are some details about this promotion:

  • Hosts may participate in this promotion multiple times by hosting multiple events, but each event must qualify on its own.
  • Customer, demonstrator, workshop, and online orders qualify for this promotion.
  • Qualifying orders must qualify with commissionable merchandise prior to shipping and tax.
  • Extra Stampin’ Rewards earned through this promotion can be redeemed in the “Stampin’ Rewards” section of the ordering process.


Please let me know if you have any questions or need help with maximizing either of these promotions.


Happy Stamping!
