Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin and some SU! Updates

Hey, y’all!  Happy World Card Making Day!

So – it’s Saturday.  But…I’m working today, so…bleh! 🙂  And the way the week’s gone, my hind-end’s been dragging when I get back to the room in the evening and…tired Mary = No crafty Mojo!  I sit down at my little crafting area and just…stare.  

And stare.

And then I go to bed.

So…I might be a little behind!

To be clear – I don’t HAVE a little behind…I AM a little behind.

See the difference??

I did want to remind you about some things going on right now – both thru me and thru Stampin’ Up!

First of all – the Paper Pumpkin Season of Style Holiday Promotion is still in full-swing.  And – you’ve still got a couple of days to sign up and receive the first of the two coordinated kits!

Adding a beautiful, handmade touch to Christmas will be fast and easy for Paper Pumpkin subscribers during our Season of Style.  Subscribers in October and November….Get ready for TWO STRAIGHT MONTHS of perfectly coordinated cardmaking and gifting projects with everything you need — and plenty of time left over for holiday sharing.

Now – here are the details…

  • The October and November kits coordinate but they also stand alone. You DO NOT need both kits to create a complete project.
  • To receive October’s kit, customers must subscribe at by 11:50 PM (MT) on 10 October 17.
  • To receive November’s kit, customers must subscribe at by 11:50 PM (MT) on 10 November 17.

As you can see – there’s only a couple of days left in which to sign up and get the October kit!

Just to whet yer whistle – take a gander at the September kit!  Full of Fall goodness – and treat holders!  Makes me wonder what could be up their sleeve in these next kits!!  Click to watch the video…

Fun, huh??

Okay – so….what else?

Oh….how about new Alcohol Markers!?  

Yep.  You heard me!

Introducing…Stampin’ Blends!

The customer release date for the new Stampin’ Blends Markers hasn’t been announced yet…as soon as I know…you’ll know! 

Say hello to a new world of colorful creativity!  Meet Stampin’ Blends, artist-quality alcohol markers in 12 exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors.

The new markers are available only to Demonstrators for now!! 

You may be thinking…Mary!  Why the heck would you be so mean??  Why tell me about something that I can’t have right now – and don’t even know when they’ll come our way!?

Well….If you’ve ever thought about joining Stampin’ Up, right now is a super time…you, too, can get your hands on these new markers early during the preorder which is only from 1 Oct – 15 Oct.  Yes – you can choose Stampin’ Blends to fill your Starter Kit!  Pssst – mine are here already! 🙂

Stampin’ Blends Features

  • Add just the right amount of color where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each color (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
  • Stampin’ Up! has done in-house testing for evaporation and life testing and they are really happy with the results.
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting color.

If you’re interested in joining and want more details about adding the markers to your Starter Kit, contact me today!

There’s also the Buy-Three-Get-One-Free DSP Sale ongoing for the remainder of the month – be sure to check the list of the paper packs that are part of the special deal, okay!?  It’s lot of stacks – but it’s not all of them.  Just throwin’ that out there.

World Card Making Day is in October (today – 7 Oct 17!!) and Stampin’ Up! has a sale going on for that, too – it runs thru 10 Oct.  

Finally – do not – I mean do NOT – miss my Free Shipping and Double Peppermint Points ordering special.  You’ve got today and you’ve got tomorrow – and then…caput!

I’m going to refresh the mojo and I’ll be back in the morning with a sneak peek for my Sunday night Facebook Live Video!

Y’all have a super Saturday!



Use this host code when you order and receive a free gift from me! But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift.

Deal #1: Free Shipping on orders over $50!

For all orders of $50 or greater (before taxes and shipping) placed through me from now through Sunday, 8 Oct, I’m offering free shipping.  Here’s how you can order and receive your free shipping rebate:

World Card Making Day Special Promotion!!

1 – 10 October 17

We didn’t come up with World Card Making Day, but we’re thrilled that it’s a thing! It’s a day dedicated to doing what you love most—making handmade cards! It celebrates the creativity and personal connection handmade cards create between loved ones, and it’s a great time to make their own cards to send to your family and friends.

This year the world celebrates the day on October 7, but one day wasn’t enough for us. For ten days (October 1–10), we can get 15% off Notecards & Envelopes and select stamp sets.  

NOTE: We’d been offering two free Fast Fuse Refills when you purchased a Fast Fuse Adhesive, but y’all snapped those up so fast that they went on backorder and we had to discontinue that special! 🙁  To help make it up to us, SU! will bring back the same offer on Fast Fuse for five days within the next few months, after they’re confident they have sufficient Fast Fuse in stock (this five-day offer will be in North America only).   In the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding!

So….let’s celebrate the best hobby of all—cardmaking!

Finn-Fan Fix  (you’ll have to settle for re-runs until I get back home to take fresh photos!!)  

But – I did take this picture driving back to the hotel yesterday.  One advantage to working on a day when the whole rest of the base is off is…you can just stop in the middle of the road.  One – to let the guy there at center photo meander across the road to rejoin his buddies and two…to take their picture!  Genuine wild horses.  Up close and personal.

You can see they were mighty impressed with my presence…

  1. Hope you get some needed down time and get your mojo back! 🙂 Love the wild horse pic!

  2. I totally get the staring mode! It’s not a happy place and I’m glad you don’t find yourself there frequently. It’s almost like a pity party but WORSE! The scene you captured made up for no card today! You’ll get back in the groove once today is behind your behind 😉 Hang in there! (Now I wish I had that stamp set and could morph it to you!!)

    • I’m expecting the return of my mojo any day now! And Wayne has mailed my stamp set to me! Thanks so much, Karen!! 🙂

    Mary, even without a card your post is delightful. Love your humor. – Ellie

  4. Join the club, Friend! There are days there is no Mojo, and days when even with Mojo there is no card, because there is no time unless one never sleeps. Sorry, Charlie, I need mine.
    Love your humor and the horses.
