Order Stampin’ Blends Beginning Nov 1!

banner for Stampin' Blends with start date

Whoohoo! Stampin’ Up! just announced that customers can begin ordering the Stampin’ Blends November 1st. These are alcohol markers in Stampin’ Up! exclusive colors. Unlike Copic markers, you don’t have to be a color scientist to create beautiful works of art with the Stampin’ Blends. You already are familiar with the colors and know what colors go well together. To simplify things, the Blends come in a light and dark version of each color offered. They are similar to the Stampin’ Blendabilities which were pulled from the market due to manufacturing design issues but these Blends have been tested more thoroughly and the design of the pens revamped to correct the pitfalls of the Blendabilities. Another benefit of these Blends is that the price of each color has been reduced from the price the Blendabilities were. Check out the video below.

The colors being offered at this time are

  • Night of Navy
  • Bermuda Bay
  • Pool Party
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Calypso Coral
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Pink Pirouette
  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Old Olive
  • Smoky Slate
  • Crumb Cake
  • Bronze
  • Ivory
  • Color Lifter

Sealed with Love Tags

Valentine tag created with Sealed with Love Bundle

This Sealed with Love Bundle of stamp set and corresponding dies is perfect for making a Valentine tag to add to a little box of chocolates as a gift for the childcare providers at our local MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) group. I love the little envelopes and tiny note cards. Since these were for the childcare people, I thought the sentiment from the Swan Lake stamp set was the perfect choice. I embossed the tag after stamping the sentiment with the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I think the name really should be Falling Hearts as they look more like hearts to me than petals. But then, I wasn’t asked…LOL!

Remember that this is Sale-A-Bration time at Stampin’ Up! and you can choose a FREE item in the Sale-A-Bration brochure for each $50 you purchase in product from any of our current catalogs.

3 month prepaid subscriptions (137859) to Paper Pumpkin are an easy way to get that FREE SAB item. The 3 month prepaid subscription is on sale for only $55 through March 31st. You can order any number of multiples of the 3 month subscriptions. You will receive an email with an activation code for each 3 month subscription. Be sure to save those activation codes to use when the first 3 month subscription expires so you can begin the next three month subscription. If you are a current subscriber, your monthly billing of $19.95 will be suspended while you use the prepaid subscriptions.

To order the supplies I used to make this tag, just click on the images below.

Hey Chick!

Wiper card using Hey Chick stamp set

When I first saw the Hey Chick stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, I knew I had to make a wiper card with the set. This SAB set is absolutely darling and the best part of it is that it is FREE when you purchase $50 in product from me before taxes and shipping.

Now the closed card is cute in and of itself but just see what happens when you pull the ends of the card!

Opened wiper card using Hey, Chick stamp set

Giggle! I just love that floppy-maned chicken popping up to wish you a happy day! There are several online tutorials and videos showing how to make a wiper card. I followed Dawn Olchefsky’s  directions on this video  but made the tag a little longer so more of it would stick up. Wiper cards are fun to make but do take a little fussing to get them right the first time you make one.

The new 2017 Occasions catalog became live Jan 4th and that also was the first day of Sale-A-Bration which runs through March 31st. Sale-A-Bration is the exciting time of year when you can choose one of the FREE items from the Sale-A-Bration brochure for each $50 you purchase in Stampin’ Up! products. Contact me if you would like a copy of the 2017 Occasions catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure. I love giving them away for just the agreement that I can periodically give you a call to see how I can help you with your creative needs.

Check out this blog and my facebook page frequently to see samples I’ve created with product from these catalogs.
