Sneak Peek: Holiday Catalog ~ Winter Woods Bundle

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed my autumn card yesterday … Isn’t it beautiful!! I still have a few openings in my Thursday class (Wednesday is full) so let me know if you’d like to join us!!

If you love fall, leaves and beautiful trees, you’re in for a big treat because I’m giving you a sneak peek at the “Winter Woods” bundle from the NEW Holiday catalog!! You will also see how this was made to tie into our favorite “Lovely as a Tree” stamp set.

Grab your coffee … sit back and enjoy this video by Stampin’ Up! and one of my favorites, Tanner!

We love trees and the Winter Woods Bundle is perfect for scene building and are so versatile. Oh My Gosh, I just love the die cut that gives you a 3-D effect!! And you can add snow!! Love it.

I’ve said for quite some time that Stampin’ Up! has been coordinating their sets to use together, this is just bringing it to the next level!!  Did you notice that each time Tanner was “in the woods” there was MORE woods!? LOL  I actually cracked up when I saw the squirrel in the tree … Miss it, just watch it again. lol

Keep an eye out for an upcoming “Stampin’ Event” where I will be highlighting this stamp set and several more from the Holiday Catalog!!  Make sure you are “On my email” List 🙂

Thank you for stopping in …

Cheers to a fun filled weekend!!

Technique Tuesday: Distinktive Stamps

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Stampin’ Up! knows there is always room for innovation, which is why we’ve trademarked a new style of red rubber stamp. Named Distinktive (see what we did there?), these stamps start with a photograph, which our amazing Stampin’ Up! manufacturing team in Kanab, Utah then turns into a photorealistic red rubber stamp!

Watch Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Development Manager, Tanner Smedley, show you the innovative Distinktive Stamps. Watch how these stamps give a realistic stamped image that will wow anyone who see it.

This innovative stamp style allows you to create images with depth by simply inking and stamping once!

Here is the “Healing Hugs” stamp set that Tanner showed us in the video … a card sample will follow!

Another beautiful Distinktive Stamp Set is the “All The Good Things” stamp set with the lovely koi fish. Did you know that koi are symbols of love and friendship in Japan?

This Distinktive stamp set is perfect for creating eye-catching projects like these pretty cards …

I hope you enjoyed learning more about this awesome new stamp design.  They really create a beautiful image … you just choose they ones that reflect your style.

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me …

Hope yours is a good one.

Alphabet Edgelits?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you got a chance to see the cute card I shared yesterday!! I love how simple it was to make … and the color scheme, however you can use any color combination you like.

Today I want to share the video …

Have you seen the Layering Alphabet Edgelits? Watch as Tanner demonstrates the use of the Edgelits.

Aren’t these amazing? I think you could really have fun and get totally creative with this bundle.

Thanks for checking out this video, I hope you have a great day!

New Catalog & Graceful Glass Suite

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend with family & friends.

The launch of the new annual catalog is only three days away! To help celebrate and introduce all the great new products, Stampin’ Up! created this stop-motion video to share with you! AND if you are on my mailing list because you are a club member, hostess or on-line shopper with me … Your catalog is in the mail (or available for pick-up)!!

Did you catch a glimpse of the new butterfly … it’s so pretty!! It’s from the new “Springtime Impressions” thinlits dies and coordinates with Garden Impressions Suite and the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set.

I also want to introduce you to one of my favorite suites in the new catalog, the Graceful Glass. Here is Brian from the home office to share some tips on using this amazing new product suite …

The Graceful Glass suite by Stampin’ Up! is perfect for any occasions as shown by the greetings in the stamp set.  For those of you who love to color … you will truly fall in love with this product suite because the designer paper is a must have complement to the stamp and dies bundle!

Thank you so much for joining me today!

Enjoy the sunshine and your day ~

New In-Colors & Tips on New Pads!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

With all the excitement over the New Catalog release, the new In-Colors and the Color Re-Vamp I thought I would share some fun tips that Stampin’ Up! has shared with us … I’ll also share a tip or two of my own.

First up are these cute cards featuring the 2018–20 In Colors! Including Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, and Pineapple Punch, these colors are a bouquet of hues that lend well to any project.

I love the new In-Colors … they are so bright and fun!! Looks like “primary” colors and the rest of our color line fill in all the gaps with beautiful hues of everything in between!!

Next up is a video explaining our NEW Ink Pads …

My hands are not what they used to be so opening with a full hand is not as easy for me … However, I have found if I put my thumb and pointer finger in the groove, I just give a little twist – just like opening a compact (and most of us know how to do that). I myself find that a bit easier.

I’ll see if I can create a short video on how I open the new ink case if you think that will help.

Till then … Thank you for joining me!

Have a bright and colorful day~

Before we say farewell …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Just a friendly reminder that the following promotions are coming to an end …

Here is a Q & A … Should answer any questions you may have. If not, contact me!

Customer Stamparatus Launch Q & A
Q: How do I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: Normally you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store; in this case, you will click the
RESERVE link on the Stamparatus page which will take you to the reservation page. For step-by-step

instructions, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers.

Q: What if I do not have a Stampin’ Up! customer account?
A: To reserve a Stamparatus, you must have a customer account. To create one, click Create Account on the online store.

Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship?
A: We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any
given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our
warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.

Q: Will the available-to-ship dates be the same for all markets?
A: Yes.

Q: Am I billed at the time I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: No. However, a credit card is required to reserve the product.

Q: When will I be charged for the Stamparatus?
A: When inventory arrives in the warehouse, we will add your reservation to a shopping cart. We will
then send you an email notifying you that your Stamparatus order is ready. Once you finalize payment
and close your order, the system will charge your credit card.

Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?
A: No. However, once your reservation is transferred to your shopping cart, you will then be able to add other items to your order. Important note: Please do not delete the Stamparatus from your order. We
will not be able to add it back and you will lose your reservation.

Q: Will I be able to update my address and credit card information when I open my shopping bag to
complete my order?
A: Yes.

Q: What if I change my mind and want to cancel my reservation?
A: You can cancel your reservation at any time. To cancel, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers PDF.

Q: Will the tool be available in the 2018–2019 annual catalog?
A: Yes. Once the annual catalog ordering period begins, you will be able to order the Stamparatus as you
would any other product. Reservations will no longer be required, and there will be no limit on the
number of tools you can order.

Q: Once the Stamparatus has been added to my shopping cart, how long will it stay there?
A: Indefinitely. As with all products, it will be subject to temporary interruptions in availability
depending on demand.

Q: Can I participate in all three reservation periods?
A: Yes.

Q: How many stamp placement tools can I reserve per reservation window?
A: For customers, there is a limit of 1 per reservation window.

Q: How did we come up with the name Stamparatus?
A: We landed on an innovative name by combining two words that speak to the end use of the tool as well as Stampin’ Up! branding.
Stampē: To impress a pattern or mark (especially an official one) on
a surface, object, or document using an engraved or inked
block or die or other instrument
Apparatus: The technical equipment or machinery needed for a
particular activity or purpose
Stamp + Apparatus = Stamparatus
