Card in the mail heralds a world record!

If you hang out in the Stampin’ Up world you’ve probably heard.  Stampin’ Up is the proud owner of a Guinness World Record that was set at our recent annual Convention in Salt Lake City.  Nice achievement to celebrate a 25th Anniversary don’t you think?

So what was the record and what does it have to do with my card in the mail?  So glad you asked…..

Guiness World Record

Did you see…most greeting cards sent  from a single location!

Guiness World Record - Most greeting cards sent from one location - it's official

And of course a nice plaque to hang in the Home Office.

So what did I get?


World Record - Hey There Friend - Deb Naylor - watermarked

My very own card from the thousands (2,984 to be exact) that were sent to set the record.  How’s that for owning a piece of Stampin’ Up history?  I love it!    My heartfelt thanks to friend and fellow demonstrator Deb Naylor for including me in this record setting convention experience.   You can read Deb’s excellent blog here.   Lots of inspiring projects and of course the latest news on Stampin’ Up products.   Stay tuned on her blog for grandkid updates.  Deb’s been visiting in my own home state of Oregon with family.  Here’s hoping her kitties forgive her though I bet they’ve been loving on the housesitter in her absence.  Cats are like that right?

Here’s the Supplies  I’ve sussed out that Deb used in her card.   It was one of her popular swap cards for convention.

Card Details:

Card dimension (folded):  3″ x 6″

Brilliant sizing as it means she got 4 card bases per sheet of Whisper White 12″ x 12″ cardstock.  And it gave her lots of room to play.  Apart from the basic layers the rest uses up scraps.

Layer sizing:

DSP: 3″ x 2″     Cardstock Mat: 2-1/4″ x 3″

Stamps: Mosaic Madness, Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit stamp (hey there, friend)

Ink: Strawberry Slush In Color Ink Pad

Paper: Whisper White & Strawberry Slush cardstock, Quatrefancy Specialty DSP

Punches: Mosiac, Decorative Label, Extra Large Oval, Large Oval, Scalloped Oval

Other: Big Shot, Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder, Basic Jewel Rhinestones, Dimensionals and adhesive.


So there you have it.   Another installment of Cards in the Mail and a little slice of Stampin’ Up history.   That’s a lot to fit in my mailbox on the highway!

Hugs and blessings to you all – may your week be sunny and filled with joy! –  Jean

  1. I’m so glad you’re part of the history-making send-a-thon, Jean. I know you were bummed about not being able to make Convention so this makes the 25th Anniversary Convention a part of your life, too. I don’t blame Deb for gloating, btw. It would be hard not to if you won all the stamp sets in the Holiday Catalogue.

    • Hah! Turns out I had the two Deb Naylors confused. I originally linked to the wrong Deb (Debbie not Debra) Naylors blog. Who knew there were two involved in SU. I sure didn’t till I heard from my Deb Naylor who sadly informed me she wasn’t “the” Deb Naylor who won all the prizes. Sigh…sure would have been nice if she had after standing in line for an hour to mail my card! Still I’m grateful to have been at least peripherally a part of the event. Check out Thursday’s post when I’m showing off the second world record card I received from Karen Huber. Broken foot and all she sat in line for an hour as well!
