Great News … Great New Product Announcement

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I missed you yesterday, I still feel a bit like I’m in a time warp! lol  Trying to catch up after being gone, and getting everything from Retreat and Convention put away, but I wouldn’t have missed either for the world.

I will be sharing more of each of those later fun events later as I have awesome card samples too!!

Today I’d like to share a few announcements and goodies that are coming your way.  First, our Online Extravaganza is coming next week! Deals start November 23 (Black Friday) through November 28. I will get you more details as they are released to us.

I also have some great news … if you ever had trouble getting your red rubber stamps to stick to the clear blocks, your troubles will soon be over!! Stampin’ Up! have created Cling Stamps …

  • At the OnStage events in November 2018, Stampin’ Up!’s cofounder Shelli Gardner introduced and demonstrated the new red rubber stamping solution: cling stamps.
  • Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available either in cling (for red rubber stamps) or photopolymer.
  • Stamps in the 2018-2019 annual catalog will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount, or photopolymer.
  • Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalog that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalog. Watch for more information about carryover stamp sets in April 2019 with the regularly scheduled communication about catalog transitions, the carryover list, and the retiring products list.
  • In 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps* will no longer be available. The only exception is background stamps in North America only, which will still be available in wood-mount.

I have even more exciting news to share … and I will do so along with some awesome card samples. They have inspired me, and I’m sure they will do the same for you.

So … I’ll be back tomorrow with a cute “gift” that I created for my Retreat Attendee’s.  See you then.

Thank you for stopping by ~

Not Just Snowflakes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Just a quick post to share a few ideas with the new Snowflake Showcase …

Our assortment of Snowflake Showcase products aren’t just for snowflakes, but they’re perfect for any occasion. Don’t miss out on them because once they’re gone they’re gone for good.

Two for Tuesday: Snowflake Showcase

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m thrilled to show you this amazing new product suite …

Today I’ll be sharing 2 beautiful cards with you along with pictures of the product so you can see for yourself how amazing this is.

Snowflake Showcase isn’t just for winter, these products are perfect for year round. Don’t believe me? Shannon West, from the Riverton home office, is here to show you how Snowflake Showcase is perfect for everyone.

Amazing right!! First card I have is from the Snow is Glistening stamp set (149742) …

You can’t have this amazing stamp set without the coordinating dies, which by the way, coordinate with BOTH stamp sets!!

The second card is from the Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set (149744) …

I am always looking for stamps and die sets that work for more than one season, it just makes sense and a better investment. I also fell for the fonts … they are fun and readable greetings and salutations.

And, if you’re like me, you like to grab up those coordinating embellishments. The cute Snowflake Trinkets are simply lovely …

The Snowflake Trinkets are a great way to embellish your cards, or your ears, neck … are you catching this? They are so cute … why not make jewelry out of them. Embellish a gift package with them, Christmas is just around the corner!!

AND … if you are a paper junkie like I am (Three sheets short of being declared a hoarder – LOL) You are simply going to FLIP over this new White Velvet Paper!! It is so cool and of course, velveteen to the touch.

I feel head over heels for the Snowflake Showcase and will be introducing it to my Retreat Attendee’s this weekend, but don’t feel left out, I have a special card to share with you tomorrow!!

I will also be hosting a class or two, I just need to figure out the details, so keep your eyes open and make sure you are on my mailing list. YOU will NOT want to miss this one!!  This showcase will be available to order November 1st through the 30th or while supplies last.

Thank you so much for joining me this Tuesday, be sure to stop back tomorrow to see what I did this this set so far.

Have a wonderful day ~

Quick -n- Easy Christmas Tags!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a fun and informative video (and quick) and some cute projects too! Want to make 16 tiny tags with just one pass through your Big Shot? The Tags & Tidings Bundle is perfect for creating simple tags to use for celebrating your holiday season.

Let’s start out with the video … grab your coffee and relax for a few minutes while Chad shows you how easy this bundle is …

Did you notice the informative tips Chad shared?  First … It’s a great idea to place your stamps face down on the table and then pick it up with your block. I use this technique a lot when using long sentiments, I place them on my grid paper so I know they are straight and then pick it up with my block as well.

The second tip I love, and have been sharing with my customers for quite some time. I call it the “Show it Who’s Boss” technique.  Place your block on the table with stamps facing up and then ink up your stamps (tap, tap, tap) … this way you have much more control over how much ink you are adding because you have a birds eye view.

Here are the samples made with the Tags & Tidings Bundle …

The cute tags you’ve create can be used on gifts, on cards, and can easily be embellished.  Do you see the “merry” on the card … that comes from the “Festive Farmhouse” product suite (I just ordered them yesterday).  Did you also notice that the “tags” stamp was used for the background? How cool is that!!

I also see the “naughty / nice” tag embellished with you know who! And you can find this jolly old fellow on pages 18 and 19 in the Santa’s Workshop Suite. He’s on his way to my house too … first in a Stampin’ Up! box and then on the 24th of December! Yes, I was a good girl 😉

I hope you enjoyed these quick -n- cute Christmas tags, and the great stampin’ tips.  Thank you so much for kickin’ back with me for a time today.

Enjoy your day ~

Today I have something special to show you … not quite a technique but an awesome new tool created by Stampin’ Up! to aid us in all our card making and scrapbooking. It’s the new “Take Your Pick” tool that will be released in September when the Holiday Catalog goes live!!

Are you looking for a tool that makes your crafting life even easier? Dani Baker, senior product strategy specialist here at Stampin’ Up!, is here to introduce the Take Your Pick tool.

Isn’t that the neatest thing since sliced bread? Or then new cell phones that do everything … lol  Can’t wait to get my hands on it because I have some other ideas that I would like to try out with that tool! , I have more … September is rockin’ with some awesome opportunities …

1st ~ The Holiday Catalog is goes live on September 5th and

Hosting a holiday catalog event is always fun—and Stampin’ Up! has made it even more delightful with the exciting Dashing Along Host Promotion. Host a party with just $250 in sales from September 1–30, you’ll earn our FREE, exclusive Dashing Along Designer Series Paper. I’d like to get you the “Pick Your Tool” for FREE too!! No place to host a party?? You can use my Stampin’ Studio!! Let’s chat and set a date.

To create our exclusive Dashing Along Designer Series Paper, we decided to use a mix of old favorites and new patterns to bring you  beautiful, traditional Christmas paper. This collection of patterns has an eclectic feel and is perfect for layering, and while the newsprint design isn’t Christmas-themed, we selected it for its versatility and popularity with customers. We hope you’ll love this Designer Series Paper as much as we do, and remember, it’s available for a limited time and with qualifying sales only! That means you can be your own “hostess” and reap all the benefits!
