Stampin’ Up! NEW Picture Perfect Birthday

Today’s card uses lots of new product from the 2018 Occasions Catalog!!

Last week’s Facebook Live Tutorial was showing how I made this card and someone even remarked on how quickly it came together.

Great cards come from simple stamping, great patterned paper, and fun texture!

My card starts off with Peekaboo Peach cardstock.  Next I took a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock (see video for cut sizes) and embossed it using the NEW Simply Stripes embossing folder.  I adhered it on an angle.  Then I took a pattern from the Picture Perfect Party DSP which is full of bright colors and great images and adhered it on the opposite angle.

*The Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper is included in my 2018 Occasions Catalog Product Share.  See here for more details!*

Next I cut a strip of Bermuda Bay ribbon to go horizontally across the card.  I added a banner of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock just above that.

Lastly I created my stamped images from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set by first stamping the bottom of the candles in Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, and Lemon Lime Twist and then Peekaboo Peach for the flame (first stamping off for a lighter color).  I then stamped the birthday sentiment in Memento Black ink over the candles.

Enjoy!

Stamparatus News & Year End Sale

STAMPARATUS RESERVATION CHANGES:

The results are in! The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided Stampin Up with some very important information: You LOVE this new stamping tool! Stampin Up couldn’t be more thrilled; in fact, your response was so amazing that they’ve decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.

As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period Stampin Up will take as many orders as they receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!

Please note the following changes:

  • Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
  • Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you and your customers to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

Please note what has not changed:

  • If you reserved more than one stamping tool during the first reservation period, that number will not change; you will still receive the same number you reserved.
  • If you reserved one or more stamping tool(s) during the first reservation period, you may still order during the second window.
  • The reservation window will open at 2:00 PM (MT) on December 5.

YEAR END SALE EVENT:

Head on over to my store for Stampin Up’s year-end sales event!!!  This is a combination of retired product (that once gone, is gone for good) and product on sale that will stick around (although not on sale) from the Annual Catalogs.

Product and sales is while supplies last!

Stamparatus Pre-Order Almost Live!

The Stamparatus was already such a success that this pre-order session sold out within 18 minutes – CRAZY!  If you didn’t get to order one, the next pre-order window opens December 5th!

The Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus reservations will be opening soon and they’ll be open until the supply is depleted.  So head over to my online store beginning at 2:00 PM MT today to reserve yours!  Just log into your account and then click on the button on the online store home page to start the reservation process.

This is what the screen will look like when you log in, just click on the orange button to start the reservation process!

And if you miss out on this round, don’t worry, there will be another reservation period starting on December 5!

A few of you have asked questions about adding a host code to the reservation.  Since the order will not be generated and you will not be charged for the Stamparatus until February, you won’t be able to add the host code until then.  This is how the ordering process will work:

  • After you get your tool reserved, you will get an email from Stampin’ Up! confirming your reservation.
  • You will get an email from Stampin’ Up! in early February letting you know that an item has been added to your shopping basket.
  • At that point, you can log into your Stampin’ Up! account in my online store and you will find the Stamparatus in your shopping bag.
  • You can add other items to your order at that time if you’d like and add a host code to it before submitting the order.  So the checkout process will work just like it always does.  You can add a host code and your payment information at the time of checkout.

Here is a quick tutorial for the reservation process:

SPECIAL DEAL DURING ORDER PERIOD NOV 16-30

Pre-order your Stamparatus between November 16 to 30 and I’ll throw in a free Ink Pad of your choice.  Use host code XCEB7YRA at checkout and shoot me an e-mail letting me know what ink pad you’d like: stampinjaimie@gmail.com

Let me know if you have any questions.  Don’t forget that the reservation process starts at 2:00 PM MT (4:00 PM Eastern Time, 3:00 PM Central Time, 1:00 PM Pacific Time)!

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone!

I wanted to create a super clean Halloween card for today.

I start off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Spooky Night DSP and cut it in a 2′ banner.

I cut down the pattern of the Spooky Night DSP with the tree and then cut out two pumpkins to adhere in the moonlight.  I matted this on Basic Black cardstock and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Chums in Memento Black ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and snipped the end of it.  Lastly I added a few black rhinestones!

Enjoy!
