Beautiful New Stamp Set “You’re Wonderful”

 

You're Wonderful Stamp Set

Surprise!  A beautiful new photopolymer stamp set for September from Stampin’ Up! this morning called “You’re Wonderful” #139158. You can read the story of the creation of this stamp set on the Stampin’ Up! Blog. Funny how the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit has actually led to the creation of new stamp sets as people discover their inner “designer” and creativity by carving their own stamp!

Here are some samples on the Stampin’ Up! blog using this lovely stamp set!

You're Wonderful Samples

And here are the new Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up! for September 9 – 15:

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Sept 9 2014

For sure I would say if you do not own the 2″ Circle Punch you should put that on your list! And what stamper can be without Dazzling Diamonds Glitter!  Be sure you have the 2-Way Glue Pen as well – works great for adhering the glitter! Dazzling Diamonds Glitter has long been the “go-to” product when your card needs just a little something for pizzazz. Everything else is good, too, just choose what you like!

To shop for any and all of these items and MORE, please visit my Stampin’ Up! Online Store HERE And I’m always happy to put an order in for you if you prefer.

Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deal Sept 2, 2014

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Sept 2 2014

Here are the current Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for the week of September 2 through September 8. If you haven’t tried the Stampin’ Up! clay, this might be your chance!  Get the molds and the reinkers to color the clay – or get the reinkers for your ink pads while they are discounted! And how timely is the Back To School Ensemble Digital Download? Whether you have little ones going off to school about now or you still have all those “first day of school” photos tucked away in boxes somewhere, you can make a photo book or scrapbook pages, digital or traditional, with this Back To School download. Use it with My Digital Studio or whatever design program you have on your computer. You CAN get a trial version of My Digital Studio to use for 30 days and try out. It’s the full software and has some content and you can purchase any downloads you would like to use with it. But my suggestion, for the low price of $19.95, just buy the software and go for it!  You get an amazing amount of art and content on that software! I suggest the digital download version of the software My Digital Studio is easy to learn just by playing with it, plus there are plenty of tutorials online from Stampin’ Up!

Check out all the Holiday Catalog products and more in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store HERE!

Another Great Year Happy Birthday Card

Another Great Year Happy Birthday Card

Just had to share a beautiful handmade birthday card I received last week in St. Louis from my friend Jan using the stamp set Another Great Year. I almost always forget this stamp set is retired – I really like it and it seems like it should be current! She used some pieces of Back To Black Designer Series Paper on each side, non-SU baker’s twine around the top and glitter and glimmer for bling on the cupcakes. The main image is embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The little heart at the bottom is punched out with the word “friend” stamped on a paper behind it. Also, I love how she decorated the envelope with some stamping and coloring! We always say you shouldn’t send a naked envelope,although I have to admit sometimes I don’t take that extra second to do it or maybe  I don’t think about it until the card is sealed in the envelope and sometimes that makes it too bulky to stamp on it and have the image come out clearly. Such a happy card, I think! Maybe you already own the stamp set or you can get an idea with some other current set we have.

Don’t forget:  Last day for Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for August 12-18

Weekly Deal Aug 12

Texas Sales Tax Holiday – Buy Your School Supplies from Stampin’ Up!

Texas Flag

I’m glad the Texas state flag is easy to make with just red, white, and blue and a white star! Starting today, August 8, the Texas Sales Tax holiday will be in effect through August 10 to help parents save a few pennies with all the before-school-starts purchases! And when you are buying a lot of things, those 8 pennies on every dollar do add up.

To save a few shopping minutes, there are some items you can order directly from Stampin’ Up! that count as school supplies, as long as each item is priced under $100. You can spend more than $100 total but any item (like the full set of markers in a case) that costs more than $100 would not be eligible. You don’t have to have children in school in order to take advantage of the school supplies! Stock up on general items like adhesives, scissors, markers and pens while you can save a little bit of money, if you live in Texas! Even if you don’t have children in school, you never know. Some night your neighbor may call and ask if you have any glue for her child’s science fair project or report she just found out about!

Stampin’ Up! sent out a letter to Texas demonstrators to pass on to their customers:

“The state of Texas is having a sales tax holiday for school supplies up to $100 per item from August 8-10. States typically define School Supply as “any item normally used by students in a standard classroom for educational purposes.” Because school supply items are included in this sales tax holiday, the list of items below will be state tax-free during the holiday period. Please note that you must place your order with Stampin’ Up!® during the tax holiday period in order to receive these items tax-free. Also, keep in mind that this is a state sales tax holiday and may not apply to additional county, city and special jurisdiction taxes.”

The following items are tax-exempt during the Texas sales tax holiday:

·         2-Way Glue Pen (item 100425) $4.50
·         Snail Adhesive (item 104332) $6.95

Flower Fair Framelits and the Big Shot

Flower Patch Flower Fair Birthday Card

The Flower Patch Stamp Set makes beautiful flowers on a birthday card, but would you like to cut them all out after you stamped them, or would you rather use the Big Shot and the Flower Fair Framelits Dies? You could cut them with Paper Snips but it’s easier to use the Big Shot!

The background of the Crumb Cake card base is stamped with the stripe from the Work of Art Stamp Set. The Birthday greeting is from the Four You stamp setone that I love for greetings!

I really liked adding the sequins on the card from the In Color Sequin Assortment. Those three were just enough, though. I had planned to put some on the birthday greeting too. You have to know when to stop!

If you don’t own a Big Shot, you want to consider the August Big Shot special from Stampin’ Up!  Purchase a Big Shot and choose a select bundle free!  If you already own a Big Shot, choose any of the bundles at a 15% discount. Everyone who has a Big Shot loves it and uses it a lot.

If you are not familiar with a Big Shot, watch this Stampin’ Up! video! I had chosen a little notebook cover in the catalog on page 155 to copy as a card. When I watched this video again, well, check out the last project she shows you!  My ESP has been working overtime lately! Yes, I had seen this video before, but really was not thinking about it when I chose the design for the card!  Must have been buried in my subconscious!!

Just go to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store and order your Big Shot and choose your free bundle! You’ll be glad you did!

It’s on page 58 in the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog with lots of cute examples on the page.

If you don’t own a Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine yet, just hang on a few more days until August! Then you might want to go ahead and order the Gift Bow Die and the Clear Oval Accent Bigz Die.

Back to Black Designer Paper Colored with Blendabilities

Back to Black DSP Black and WhiteWhat if you take this Back to Black Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! and color all the white images on the paper with Blendabilities alcohol markers?

Back to Black DSP Colored with Blendabilities

You get this! Since the background is black, it doesn’t matter if you color outside the lines! I even used two colors on some leaves or used the Color Lifter just to add some different shades of green. I love the feel of coloring with the Blendabilities! All of the Blendabilities colors (so far!) will be available to order August 1.

Back to Black DSP back

What if you turn the designer paper over to apply Liquid Multipurpose Glue (in the green bottle) and see the other side since the color soaks through from the Blendabilities Markers and think “Wow! Even the wrong side looks kind of cool with the color showing through!”?

Back to Black Blendabilities Colored DSP CardAnd then what if you adhere the colored piece of Back to Black Designer Series Paper to a card base and layer and start adding some other elements to make a card? What if you cut off a tiny scrap strip of another pattern of the designer paper and adhered it to a strip punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch for a little accent piece? What if you looked through stamp sets and found this greeting from the Yippee Skippee Stamp Set and then by chance pulled out an already punched piece of Melon Mambo in a tag shape with the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch and made a tag for the focal point of the card? The little flowers are punched from the Boho Blossom Punch and the flower punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch PackThe small leaves are from the Bird Builder Punch. I added some Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon to the tag and of course, a bit of bling with a Rhinestone and Candy Dots!

To purchase this Back to Black Designer Series Paper and two other packs so that you can get 1 pack FREE during July, please visit my Stampin’ Up! Online Store!

If you like “coloring in” when you are stamping and creating, then these Stampin’ Blendabilities are surely for you! And if you don’t, you might like it better when you get to use these markers! They have a different feeling than the regular Stampin’ Up! Markers (which are also great!) that I really like. If you like to be a little more artistic when you are coloring, I’m sure you will enjoy these new markers! Be sure to also purchase the Memento Ink (and I do recommend getting the refill as well) because that is the ink that works with the alcohol markers. The markers work best on Whisper White card stock. You will also want the Color Lifter with any set of colors, for cleaning up any stray ink and sometimes for helping with shading and highlighting.
