Hamburger Die Fall Box & Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals

Hamburger Die Fall Box

The Hamburger Box Bigz XL Die isn’t just for hamburgers! It really is a fun little box to make and decorate, whether as a fall gift box or favor or certainly for any occasion. I’ve found that the easiest way to assemble the box is to cut on one side of those little inside fold lines that are scored for you. That makes a tab on all the corners that can be adhered inside the box. Use a strong adhesive,

The box is tied together with the Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon  and the Tangelo Twist 3/8″ Satin Stitched RibbonDid you know you can turn the Natural Chevron Ribbon to the other side and just have a plain ribbon?  That is what I was going to do since I was putting the Tangelo Twist ribbon on top of it, but then I changed my mind!  You’re allowed to do that in stamping!

One of the reasons this became a fall box rather that a Christmas one was because when I was looking for my Real Red card stock and came across the Crushed Curry card stock, I remembered I already had some extra fall leaves stamped and cut out from the For All Things Stamp Set that I had made but didn’t use on another project. I also had the little circle punched with the acorns. So I just punched holes for the Gold Baker’s Twine and stamped a greeting tag with the set Good GreetingsI also attached a strip of Gold Foil that I found laying on the table.

Wouldn’t this box make a cute table favor for your Thanksgiving guests or part of a hostess gift?!

If you need the Hamburger Box Bigz XL Die or any fall colors of card stock to make it, please visit my Stampin’ Up! Online Store HERE.

And while you are there, please check out the new Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for the week of October 21 – 27. (Yes, I had to edit this as Stampin’ Up! had one wrong product on here earlier!)

Great things on the deals today! I’ve used my Gold 1/8″ Ribbon a lot already and it is not even Christmas yet – not that it is just for Christmas.  Gold is IN! Such a great accent for any project! Very cute updated heart punch in the Sweetheart Punch! Love the sayings in the Yippee-Skippee Stamp Set, (note that it is the wood-mount set on special) especially the first one “You Can Never Have Too Much Happy”. I’ve used this set often. The Label Card Thinlits Die – I have the Circle Card one but I use it a lot and love it. It easily makes a fancy fold card with your Big Shot.

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

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!

If I missed sending you a Holiday Catalog or you are interested in Stampin’ Up! products and don’t have a Demonstrator, just email me at Karen@KarenStamps.com and I’ll get one out to you.  The best way to enjoy the Holiday Catalog is to hold it in your hands! But you can also see it online HERE.

Learn to Use the Stampin’ Up! Gift Box Punch Board

One of my favorite new items in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog is the Gift Box Punch Board. At first glance I didn’t think I “needed” it, I’m not even sure why I put it on my order! But I did, and I like it! I think this Stampin’ Up! video will help you see how to use it because there are some steps involved – but once you get the idea, it isn’t hard. If you can fit your gift or treat inside without gluing the flaps down inside the box, it is really super simple. Otherwise, you can add some glue or glue dots or Sticky Strip to make the inside neater and more structured.

Use the new Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper, cardstock-weight kraft sheets with a colored design on one side and white printed design on the other side to make sturdy boxes – but other kinds of paper are fine, too! Wait until you hear what Holly Linford from Stampin’ Up! says you can do with this paper!

Gift Box Punch Board Gift Box and Blossom Punch

Gift Box Punch Board Gift Box Side

Soon you will be able to make your own gift boxes with the new Gift Box Punch Board #135863 when the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog goes live on August 28!  That’s in only a couple more days! Yesterday I finally got a chance to play with the new punch board and just grabbed a retired piece of designer series paper, Urban Garden, to use in case I messed up. So in this project you are seeing the new with the old!  You may find the punch board a little confusing right at first, but once you get the hang of it, you won’t have any problems. After all, I did make that box myself and didn’t even mess up! This post isn’t about how to use the Gift Box Punch Board, but just a sneak peek at something you can make with it and an idea for the Blossom Punch, on the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals this week!

Here is the 4″ x 4″ gift box before I decorated it. This is the largest size you can make with the Gift Box Punch Board.

Gift Box Punch Board Gift Box

Here is a view of the partially open box. You can see the little clasp closure on the points of the top of the box. You can use the Gift Box Punch Board to make these. If you do not like all the folds of the box being pushed to the inside of the box, there are a couple things you can do to change that to adhere those sides.

Gift Box Punch Board Gift Box Inside

Here is a close-up of the flower decoration I made with the Blossom Punch. First I wrapped the box with the Pear Pizzazz 3/4″ Chevron RibbonI thought it matched pretty nicely! With the Blossom Punch, I punched three flowers from the Urban Garden DSP.  One pattern is different from the other two and is layered in the middle. The layers are all held together with a Silver Mini Brad, which is later covered up by the button.  I spritzed the flower with water and gathered the layers up toward the center and mooshed them together to get a little texture. The Very Vintage Designer Button is threaded with the Gold Baker’s Twine with a little bow and adhered with Glue Dots. Do you know you can color the buttons with the new Blendabilities?!

Gift Box Punch Board Gift Box Top

Even though this box was my first attempt with the Gift Box Punch Board, coming in the Holiday Catalog, and even though I didn’t even like this pack of designer paper very much, I was VERY pleased with my first little box! Especially after I so easily decorated it!

When you place your Holiday Catalog order later this week, check the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals and get the Blossom Punch if you don’t already own it.  It is a punch I have used a lot. It coordinates with the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set, too! Everything is available at my Online Store!

Don’t Forget! It’s a Busy Week!

It’s Tuesday! New Weekly Deals at Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Aug 19 2014

Click to Shop!

Here are the new Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up! for the week of August 19 through Monday, August 25. Be sure to check these out and add them to your order! Or start your order with these new things and add on other new items from the catalog! I see it as a sign – I believe this is the second time for the Squares Framelits to be on this list and I didn’t order them the first time.  Maybe I better start a new order with these on it! The Honeycomb Embossing Folder has been very popular, you’ve probably seen lots of cards made with it. Of course I love all punches, so at a discount I certainly recommend getting the Elegant Butterfly Punch to have on hand. Sometimes a little butterfly on a card or project is just what it needs! Thinking ahead to Christmas cards, you might be interested in a little sparkle from the Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details.

You might wonder about the Vanilla Coaster Board.  Stampin’ Up! describes it this way:  ”Thinner than chipboard, but sturdier than cardstock. Perfect for die cutting. Neutral color makes it ideal for embossing and stamping too.” One thing that comes to mind for me is using it for a mini album cover. But I haven’t used it yet.  Maybe I should put it on my order, too!

Remember, the digital downloads, like the Travel Journal Digital Kit, for My Digital Studio, CAN be used without the MDS software. But if you want to have My Digital Studio on your computer and have all that it offers, you can purchase the software download (recommended) or the disc if you prefer. You can even just do the free trial for 30 days. Check out My Digital Studio and see if it is for you!

Check out all the Weekly Deals at my Stampin’ Up! Online Store and the New Arrivals, too! Don’t miss a thing! Remember, I am always happy to put your order in for you if you prefer!

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

Stampin’ Up! Star Framelits 4th of July Card

Stampin' Up! Star Framelits 4th of July Card

What says “4th of July” more than sparkly stars and fireworks?! These stars were cut out with the Big Shot and the new Stampin’ Up! Stars Framelits Dies plus the new little star punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  The little “fireworks” in the background were stamped with the smallest petals in the Too Kind Stamp Set. The word “Celebrate” is from the Cupcake Party Stamp Set except I only colored the word “celebrate” with a Stampin’ Write Marker. And I love the Goil Foil paper and the Champagne Glimmer Paper for this card for the stars!

If you have time to play today with crafts, make something sparkly and/or red, white, and blue to celebrate our freedom and the birth of our nation!

I hope you have a fun and wonderful 4th of July!

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals June 3 2014

Even with all the excitement over the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog going live yesterday, Stampin’ Up! still has some deals for you today!  These Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals are good today through next Monday, June 9. You might want to add one of these items to your new catalog order!

Instead of offering new downloads for My Digital Studio every Tuesday as in the past, Stampin’ Up! will offer new downloads the first week of every month. Here are the latest digital downloads:

Quatrefancy Hello Lovely Panel Card

Quatrefancy Hello Lovely Panel Card

Time is really getting short on retired Stampin’ Up! products, so I thought I would use some of my Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Hello, Lovely Stamp SetI have to admit, I haven’t been crazy about this pack of paper, but if I looked more at each paper individually, maybe it wasn’t too bad!  On this card, I just cut some 3/4″ strips of paper from scraps in the package and staggered them a little on this card front. Although I tried to center the center strip, I got it off a little bit which made the strips too far over to the right.  Since there “are no mistakes in stamping!” I decided to fix it by covering the extra wide margin on the left with some of the Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon (my favorite ribbon for a long time!). I stamped the greeting in Island Indigo ink and layered on pieces of Strawberry Slush and Pool Party card stock. Kind of a fun design to show off the papers in the Quatrefancy pack.

So much happening at Stampin’ Up!
