Get Exclusive Look at the NEW Painted Harvest Set in Holiday Catalog Available Sept. 1!

 

Welcome to the Stamptastical Holiday Catalog Preview Week! This week we will be showcasing some of the exciting new stamps, dies, bundles, papers and embellishments in the new Holiday Catalog that is available this Friday, September 1!  Today’s featured stamp set is the Painted Harvest stamp set. You can view the new Holiday Catalog online starting this Friday, September 1 so check back here and I’ll have it for you then. If you would like a copy mailed to you, click here and I’d be so happy to send you one! 

The Painted Harvest stamp set is a wonderful watercolor floral image that uses a technique called two-step stamping.  The sentiments are perfect for thank you cards, Thanksgiving or just because, and the images allow you to play with a variety of floral colors and combinations for all season. Even though this stamp set is in the Holiday Catalog, the images really work all year long.   Scroll down to check out the video below to get a closer look at the Painted Harvest stamp set and learn how two-step stamping works:

Technique Video and Exciting Paper Pumpkin Announcement

Check out this amazing technique video from Stampin’ Up! You can create one-of-a-kind marble patterned paper. This technique is super simple to do with ink and shaving cream. I loved this so much I wanted to share it with you. If you are interested in learning this technique, click here to sign up for class and you will learn how to do the marble technique and so much more! 

 

 

Also, April promises to be super exciting for Paper Pumpkin subscribers and I wanted to share the news with you! We turned creative control of our April kit over to CEO, Sara Douglass, and the end result is stunning! Her style is, “bold, vibrant, and artistic—with a little bit of sass,” which is exactly how she described the kit. Sara designed the April Paper Pumpkin kit, so you can discover creativity through the eyes of our CEO while having an experience that is uniquely YOU! Get ready to embrace your inner artist and skip to the fun with Sara.

As if a kit designed by Sara is not reason enough to sign up, there’s more! She’s including a FREE gift inside every April box! We’re keeping it a surprise, but you won’t want to miss it. If you haven’t yet signed up for Paper Pumpkin, this is a perfect time to do so! 

Each month a fully designed project kit arrives in a delightful box filled with stamps, ink, and paper—everything cut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun. Just think of it as creativity in a box. You can sign up for one month for $19.95, or purchase three months before March 31 and not only get a volume discount, you will ALSO get free products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. These kits include all you will need to create the project inside including step-by-step instructions with photos and a video tutorial if that is more your style. Click here to find out how it works. If you are interested in getting the special April kit, you need to sign up by April 10 and you can sign up here

Video Tutorial: Sponging Background Lift Me Up Card

I have a video for you today that features the Lift Me Up bundle in the 2017 Occasions catalog. For this project, I created a cloudy background by sponging and masking a cloud from the Up and Away thinlets in this Lift Me Up bundle. I wanted to share how to make the background and hope you find it useful. Please contact me if you would like to order the Lift Me Up bundle as it’s a great deal. You get the Lift Me Up Stamp set with 16 stamps included as well as the Up & Away Thinlits Dies with 15 dies and you can save 10% when you order a bundle! The fun doesn’t stop there because it’s Sale-A-Bration until March 31 and you can earn free products with qualifying purchases. Too good to miss out! Below is a list of the products used in this video as well as a link to download an Inspiration Sheet.

What Can You Make With FREE Sale-A-Bration Products?

This card is made with Sale-A-Bration products that you can get for free when you purchase $50 worth of Stampin’ Up products January 4 – March 31. What is so amazing is that it isn’t just stamp sets in the Sale-A-Bration catalog, it’s paper, it’s ribbon, it’s a WIDE variety of stamp sets and you get to choose what you want from the catalog! For instance, the floral patterned paper is a Sale-A-Bration set called Inside the Lines.  It’s white paper printed with different patterns in black that you can color in to match whatever your project needs. I love it because adult coloring is so popular and now I can incorporate that relaxing activity into my projects while NEVER missing out on matching patterned paper! The sentiment on the card is using another Sale-A-Bration item, the Avant Garden stamp set. I have listed all the products used in this card below and if you click on Avant Garden, you will see the gorgeous floral images and sentiments that are included. 

There are many ways to add color to the Inside the Lines paper. Stampin’ Up! has just released some super high quality watercolor pencils you could use. What is brilliant about that is you can either pencil color in your images OR you can color them in, paint them with water and voila! You have a watercolor image! For this card, I watercolored using my ink pads and a Aqua Painter and it was so relaxing and fun! You must try it! Here is a video that shows all you can do with Inside the Lines:

2017 Occaisions Catalog Sneak Peak – The “Unboxing” Part 1!

So this my first self-made Stampin’ Up! video and I already see many things I’d like to change. Be that as it may, I wanted the share some of the gorgeous items from the upcoming Occasions Catalog that I received. We cannot post the Occasions catalog online yet, but we CAN share what Demonstrators are able to order early. This is by no means everything the new catalog, but it’s a first glimpse. I have more to share later this week. So here it is!

 

Just a reminder that many products from the Holiday catalog are on sale up to 60% off to make room for the Occasions catalog that you can order from starting January 4. Here’s is what is on sale, so now is the time to purchase before products run out.  Click here to check out what’s on sale. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek – Window Shopping Bundle

Here is another sneak peek at some of the new products in the Occasions Catalog that will be available to view online and order from starting January 4. This one is DEFINITELY on the top of my wish list. It’s a clever stamp set and matching die cut set, A.K.A. a “Bundle” called Windows Shopping. What is so clever is that you can make a hexagon shaped paper box for gifts or treats and die cut patters on the sides and top, or stamp Happy Birthday, etc. on the box. No more hunting for a tiny gift bag, you can make one in 10 minutes! And the box is GORGEOUS! You can order just the Window Shopping stamp set or the Window Box die cut. They work separately, but I like them even better together! Here is a video that details the bundle. 

 

Speaking of Bundles, there are quite a few that are on sale for up to 60% off in the Holiday Catalog that will expire Jan. 3.  It’s a great time to stock up on  your holiday card making and gift making supplies. Here are some of the bundles that are on sale. Click here to order.  To view the Holiday Catalog, click here
