Stampin’ Up! Tags & Trimmings for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Christmas or Happy Holidays!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!  

I decided to make a treat holder using the fun Tags & Trimmings bundle.  Take a look-see:

This is such an easy little treat holder to make, y’all!  Hang on!

To start with, I cut the two main pieces of the stocking in the Trim Your Stocking Thinlit set in Powder Pink.  When you make this, you can cut a piece of card stock about 6″ x 6 3/4″ and both of the dies will fit on it and you’ll be able to get it thru the Big Shot!

I used the coordinating dies in the set to cut the top, heel and toe of the stocking from the pretty Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  And some “pom-pom trim” from a scrap of Whisper White card stock.

I inked up the sentiment from the Tags & Trimmings stamp set in Versamark and stamped it on the front of the stocking.  Then I heat embossed it in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

When you make one, add the decorations before you assemble the stocking.  I used Liquid Glue to add all the little pieces and parts.  I cut two of the large and lovely snowflakes from the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits – one each in Silver and Gold Foil.  I also stamped one of the little buttons – in Versamark – on a piece of scrap Powder Pink, heat embossed it in Silver and cut it with the matching die.  I piled them all up with Liquid Glue and added them at the top of the stocking.

To assemble the stocking, I used Tear & Tape Adhesive on the scored tabs (the dies do the scoring for you).  If you’d like a good tutorial on how to put this baby together, you can check out Amy Koender’s video right here!  I used silver Mini Tinsel Trim for the top “hangar”.

The final touch is a bow made with two lengths each of Silver and Gold Metallic Thread, adhered with a little scrunched up Glue Dot.

Et Voila!  This little Tags & Trimmings treat holder is just the perfect size for a taste of chocolate, a gift card or a nice folded show-me-the-money gift. Snap it up and decorate or gift-give with it!  Hope you like!

Introducing the….Stamparatus!!

 

At OnStage, Stampin’ Up! introduced our brand spanking new stamp-placement tool, called the Stamparatus!!  I know a lot of you have Misti’s or other brands of stamp placement tools and you love them.  Well….SU! demonstrated this last weekend and OH.  MY.  GOODNESS!!  The things it will do!  It’s a Misti-on-steroids!

The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!  Check out this video (be sure to watch all the way and see The Hinge Step!!)!

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

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

Here’s the product details!

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage areas

Retail Price–$49.00 USD

Okay. I’ve gotta have one. How do I get in line?

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system.  It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • 1 tool per customer per reservation window. 
  • You can participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you must provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.

Click here for a flyer with lots of FAQs and answers!!

RESERVATION WINDOWS        AVAILABLE TO SHIP
November 16–30, 2017          Approx. February 1, 2018
December 5–30, 2017          Approx. March 19, 2018

Stampin’ Up! Wood Crates and Lemon Zest Goodie Holder

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope this finds you well and enjoying your week!

When I had lunch with my friend the other day, I took her a little sumpin’ sumpin’ that I made right quick with the Wood Crates Framelits and matching Wood Words stamp set.  And a fun pop of Lemon Zest!  Take a look-see:

 

I cut out two crate pieces with the Wood Crates Framelits from some Thick Whisper White card stock and stamped the floral image from Wood Words in Lemon Lime Twist on both of them.  I added a little more color with a Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker.   Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Wood Textures Sneak Peek Note Card Holder!

Mornin’, y’all!  I hope you had a great Easter weekend!

Yesterday, I ever-so-slyly shared this picture with you to entice you to join me on Facebook last night…

Well – this was the “rest of the story”!

 

I made 10 little crates using the new Wood Crate Framelits and some of the too-cool photo-realistic Wood Textures DSP Stack paper!!  Filled them with some pink “grass” and added chocolate Easter Eggs.  They were a hit with my friends yesterday!

For the video last night,  I changed it up a bit and made…

I created the crate and then added three little 3″ x 3″ note cards using the Wood Words stamp set, and 3 matching envelopes that I made with the Envelope Punch Board!

Check out the video and see how to make these little cuties – and then add the Wood Words Bundle to your Wish List!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Yesterday morning, before we headed over to have Easter dinner with our friends – and let Finny have a playdate with Scout – we had farm work to do!

Fed the horses, cleaned the stalls, pulled feed for dinner.

Then we needed to sweep the aisle.

It was a terrible mess!

Finn’s version of “helping” is a little less than…helpful…

Stampin’ Up! New Catalog Survival Kits

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well.  I’m here in beautiful Savannah, at OnStage Local.  Lats night I had the privilege of attending Center Stage – the additional session for folks who’ve promoted to Silver Elite and above (sending many thanks to my wonderful downline folks and customers!!!).  We had a fun time with Brian King and some of his group and heard a few speakers who were helping us to grow our business.  And…I got a couple new goodies from the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.

Oh.  And my very own copy of that new catalog!

Y’all.

Seriously.

This catalog is amazing and awesome!!  I flat can’t wait for you to get to see it!!  I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that you need to get your credit cards limbered up! 😉  And – you should consider joining my team right now so that you can get that cool 20-25% discount and give your credit card a little breather!

I can’t show you any pictures of anything related to the new catalog yet (Monday afternoon – promise!), but figured I’d share some B-roll with you!  Here’s me with Linda Geiger and Amy Koenders driving over to Savannah.  No – we weren’t moving at the time! 🙂


Later, after we’d checked in and met with the ladies of our group, they headed off to dinner at The Old Pink House (real sorry I didn’t get to go to that! 😦 ) and Amy, Sue Prather and I headed to Center Stage!  The day was gorgeous – if breezy! – and the river was bustling!


Before we headed in, we took a quick picture…for posterity, don’t you know! 🙂

So – here’s what I’ve got for you today.  Two of my friends who also happen to be in my downline were able to attend OnStage in person this year – one lady out in San Diego and one with me here in Savannah.  To let them know how much I appreciate them making the effort to attend with me, I made each of them a little New Catalog Survival Kit!


I got the idea for the innards, which I modified a little, from a fellow Demonstrator, and then I went to town decorating them!  You can see that they’re both completely different on the outside – I made them to coordinate with my Thank You cards.  And to sort of personalize them to their recipients!

On the inside, though, they both got….


I typed up and printed a fun little listing of the contents in each box…


These are so easy to make.  They start with a full-size Stampin’ Up! Wide Stamp Case (these are the cases that the wood stamp sets come in – and you can buy them without stamps – get 4 of them for just $7!).  Then you add your DSP – I used two pieces because it helps them to fold and close smoothly.

The first case started with some Pop Of Pink DSP (this one went to my friend in San Diego – and she love love LOVES pink!!).  I cut one piece to 6 3/8″ x 7″ and scored/folded it at 1 1/4″ down the shorter (6 3/8″) side.  That piece went on the front and spine of the case – just slip it inside the clear plastic sleeve on the case!  The back piece is 5″ x 7″ and also just slips in!

At that point – I decorated the front with some Melon Mambo letters cut with the Large Letters Framelits, and a Succulent Thinlits flower – adhering them with Glue Dots.  The flower was cut in Whisper White and So Saffron and sponged lightly with So Saffron before I assembled it.  

I stuck it on – over a couple of pieces of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Ribbon (of the now-retired Sale-A-Bration flyer!) with more Glue Dots.

Then I wrapped a piece of the ribbon around the case, adhering the ends of the ribbon to each other (not to the box) so that she can just slip the ribbon off to open the case.  I used two lengths of the ribbon to tie a bow and adhered it to the ribbon with a couple of Glue Dots.  And that was it!

The second box, for my friend here in Savannah with me, uses a quieter color scheme and the great Detailed Dragonflies bundle.


This box uses the Carried Away DSP from the Sale-A-Bration flyer (sorry, y’all – but you can use any paper that works with your color scheme)

I cut more Large Letter Framelits – one set in Early Espresso and the other in Mint Macaron – and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere them to the front of the case.

I made a little tag using my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Banner Triple Punch.  First I stamped the World of Thanks background stamp in Mint Macaron on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I punched it top and bottom, wrapped a couple of pieces of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine thru the punched hole at the top, and adhered it to the box with  Liquid Glue.


I cut three of the smaller detailed dragonflies from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits – one from Mint Macaron DSP, one from Early Espresso DSP and one from Vellum card stock.  Then I adhered them together with Liquid Glue on their bodies and adhered it to the tag.  Then I brushed his little wings with Clear Wink of Stella!

The final touch was a line of small Pearl Basic Jewels.  To close the box, I wrapped Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine around and tied it in a knot.  Then I made a 4-strand bow and adhered it to the knot with Liquid Glue.  Again – the recipient can just slide the twine right off!


Et Voila!  Two pretty, decorated boxes – perfectly coordinated with their cards.  And – isn’t that one of the coolest things?  Obviously, you could make these boxes for any occasion – how about one with school supplies in it for a First Time To School gift?  New job gift?  New baby gift?  I think you could get a lot of mileage out of these boxes.  Hope you like!

Pretty sure you have to be tired of pictures of Finn sleeping in the bathroom while I take a bath.

I’m sorry.  But I can’t help it very much.  He just gets in the most cutest and adorablest positions ever.

Case in point.


Check the flopped ear.

I’m sorry for all you people who think you have the cutest dog ever living in your home.  It’s sweet that you think that, and you should keep on thinking it.  But…you’re just flat wrong. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Banners Pop of Pink Butterfly Sticky Note Holder

Home again home again!  Friday’s come and I’m home again! 🙂

Last week, I received a wonderful gift in the mail.  Inside was the cutest card ever, made with the Hey, Chick stamp set.  And…a Sticky Note Holder!  

Now, my friend Jen, who sent these wonderful gifts to me, knows that sticky notes are high on my list of must-have stamping tools!  I use them all the time as masks – I mean, doesn’t everyone?  But, what she may not know, is that I have a general weakness for sticky notes!  I use them everywhere, for everything!  When I was working in an office, I had them all over my desk.  I used them as to-do’s and telephone notes and reminders to myself.  As I type this, I have a pink one stuck on the side of my laptop with customer ordering gifts written on it so I’ll get them ordered and mailed off.  I love them.

I wish I’d invented them, cuz then I’d be rich!!

Anywho – when I saw the darling Sticky Note Pad holder she’d made, I knew I needed to make one for myself (and then a bunch for friends!).  I used the Thoughtful Banners bundle, a couple of Elegant Butterfly Punches and some Pop of Pink DSP.  Take a look-see:

elegant-pink-butterfly-sticky-note-holder-5-stamps-n-lingers

This one ended up playing along perfectly with this week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge!

sip-88

So.  These are pretty quick and easy to put together.

I started with a piece of Basic Black card stock as the base of my holder.  I scored lines at varying distances…

elegant-pink-butterfly-sticky-note-holder-1-stamps-n-lingers

It’s hard to see the score lines, but I put the measurements there for you to see.  From the left side, score and fold at 1 5/8″, 2″, 5″ and 5 3/8″.

Then I made the panels to decorate the outside of the holder.  There are three different panels, all Pop of Pink DSP matted on Melon Mambo.

elegant-pink-butterfly-sticky-note-holder-2-stamps-n-lingers

I used my Project Life Corner Punch and the corner rounder on my Envelope Punch Board to round the ends of the card stock holder, the mats and the DSP.  Then I SNAILd all the panels in place.

To close the holder, I used a small piece of sticky-backed Velcro – one on the outside of the smaller end flap and the other side on the inside of the larger flap.  You can see the inside piece in the next picture.  I adhered my Sticky Note Pad to the middle panel of the holder using Fast Fuse on the back of the holder.

elegant-pink-butterfly-sticky-note-holder-4-stamps-n-lingers

To decorate the outside, I pulled out my Thoughtful Banners stamp set, and stamped the banner image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White. I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo and punched it with the matching Duet Banners Punch (get the stamp set and punch together as a bundle and save an additional 10%!).  I popped the banner on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

elegant-pink-butterfly-sticky-note-holder-3-stamps-n-lingers

The butterfly is made from two Elegant Butterfly Punch pieces.  I used two different designs in the Pop of Pink DSP and then adhered them together with Liquid Glue on the body portion of the butterfly.  I lightly curled the top butterfly wings to help them stick up a little bit and popped him on the holder with some more Dimensionals.  I finished him off with some Pearl Basic Jewels – and that was it!

elegant-pink-butterfly-sticky-note-holder-6-stamps-n-lingers

You can see Jen’s most-adorable Sticky Note Holder on the right – she very cleverly punched the end of her holder and then created a slit in which to secure the end!  I love her little holder and hope I came even close to a solid CASE!  Hope you like – and will make one for yourself! 🙂

So – Take Advantage of the Best Free Stuff Giveaway Going!

Join Stampin’ Up! as a new demonstrator between now and the end of Sale-A-Bration (31 Mar), you’ll get two free stamp sets of your choice in your Starter Kit!! Which stamps do you get to choose from? That’s the best part: you get to pick any stamp set from the Annual or Occasions Catalogs (just not a bundle or kit)!

Details:

  • Promotion Period: 4 Jan 17 – 31 Mar 17
  • New recruits who join during the promotion period will receive their choice of two free stamp sets from the Annual or Occasions Catalog for free in their Starter Kit.  Please notice there’s no price limit on these stamp sets!  So the potential value of this free goody is $104! Just sayin’.
  • Plus, if you have a new demonstrator join under you during the promotion, you’ll get to pick any free catalog item up to $25 – and you’ll have until 14 Jun to redeem your reward.  Why is that date important??  Cuz the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog will come out on the 1st of June – so…you can pick a brand new item if you want!!
  • The Starter Kits are $99 and you get $125 in Stampin’ Up! products of your choice, free shipping on your Starter Kit plus two additional free stamp sets of your choice if you join before 31 Mar!

If you’re interested in becoming a Demonstrator or have any questions about joining, feel free to drop me an email, I’d love to tell you more about it!  Or visit my Join My Team page for more details.  I welcome all types of Demonstrators on my team – from those who’d just like to get the discount for themselves to those who want to build a business. 🙂


Have a great Friday and hope you get off a little early to start your weekend.  I’ll see you tomorrow!

FINN-FAN FIX….

Well, I got a hero’s welcome home on Thursday afternoon!  I could see Finn on the middle seat as Wayne drove up to pick me up at the airport.  He was watching out the window and saw me, too!

Some ladies were sitting on the benches awaiting their ride – and they were smiling and laughing cuz they could see him and how excited he was!

Once I was in, he wormed his way onto my lap.  Well – half way.  Front half on my lap and back half on the floor behind the seat.  He rode there most of the way home.

Safest way for him to ride?  Definitely not.  But…we got away with it this time.  And he got back where he belonged once he was sure I wasn’t going to be getting out again!

Don’t even look at the left side of my face – by the time I was able to get my camera out, he’d divested me of all my makeup on that side!  He also left about half-a-dog’s worth of hair on my hoodie!  Oh well – it’s an accessory, I guess…

I think he might have missed me a bit!  I know I missed him! 🙂
