Stampin’ Up! Truckin’ Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Good morning and happy Saturday!  Hope you’ve got a great weekend planned!

And – I hope that part of your Saturday includes setting aside a little time to join me tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a live video tutorial!  We’ll be on at 7pm eastern and will play with a super fun new bundle with a “3-Dimensional” flare!  Can you guess?  Take a sneaky peek:

I hope you can join us!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Now – on a different note.

When I started this Stampin’ Up! journey almost 5 years ago, I thought the best thing about it would be the fun tools and gadgets.  The beautiful paper and stamp sets.

I was wrong.

Now – don’t get me wrong – all of those things ARE most wonderful!

But – the VERY BEST part of this has been the people I’ve met – both in person and “virtually”.

And that blessing has been brought home to me in spades this last couple of days!  I’ve had a box full of happy mail each day!  Take a look at the wonderful birthday cards that have come to me this week!

This first one is a subscription to the Our Iowa magazine from my friend and teammate, Julie Johnson (guess where she’s from!)!  They’re right – I DO have some nice friends!  Julie has a great blog, by the way – give her a look-see over at Wild Wing Creations!

My friend – and upline/team leader extraordinaire – Amy Koenders (aka Stamp With Amy K) sent this beauty!

Karen Finkle, another good friend and teammate, created and sent…

Take a minute to check out Karen’s blog at Karen’s Card Corner!

My friend Donna sent a pretty card in pink and black!

Susan Heine sent a lovely card, too! 🙂

Kathy, from Nevada, a customer and – more importantly! – my friend! – sent this pretty floral card made with some Daisy Lane!

Faith SImpson sent this lovely bouquet!

And Barbara Simmons sent roses that will last forever!

Wow wow WOW!  I am truly blessed and fortunate to have so many wonderful friends around this country!  Thank you ALL so very much!

Hope I see you guys tonight! 🙂

STAMPIN’ TRIMMER CUTTING BLADES UPDATE

We have reevaluated our strategy for launching Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (item 126995) after the number of difficulties demonstrators and customers experienced during the South Pacific and European launches.

First, we have decided to reduce the limit on blades from six to three. We anticipate blades to sell out quickly, but hope more demonstrators and customers will be able to order with the smaller limit.

Second, we still plan to notify demonstrators through an update with the exact date and time the blades will become orderable (which will NOT be this week, as previously indicated). For this first launch in North America, we will send an email to anyone who requested a notification about when the blades would become available. For future launches, updates will be announced to Demonstrators ahead of time.

Third, we have made several internal system adjustments to avoid the issues we faced with previous launches in the South Pacific and Europe and are hopeful those errors will not be repeated.

Finally, there are different error messages you will see if trying to add the blades to an order before they become available and after they have sold out.

  • On the day of the launch, if you try to order the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades before they are available, you will see this error message: “You may not order 1 of item 126995 because of promotion restrictions.”
  • When the blades have sold out, the message will return to the current message until the next launch: “This item has been discontinued and cannot be added to your order (126995).”

We also want to remind you we are still working on a new trimmer option and hope to have more information to share in the coming months.

A quick note from me:  Stampin’ Up! did not provide a date and time when the blades will be available to order.  So keep an eye on my blog and newsletter and I’ll post those details as soon as we have them! But I wanted to post this update since many of you have been asking about the Trimmer Blades.

New 3D Embossing Folder Now Available!

The new 3D Embossing Folder Plate (item 149658) is now available to order! It’s designed to work with our new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders).

You can click on the picture above and open the flyer – then print it and keep it by your embossing machine and new 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  It’s got your new “sandwich” information right on it!

Remember that carryover 3D embossing folders will not be available to order at the start of the new catalog but I’ll let you know when they’re available to order.

Also keep in mind that we expect to receive staggered plate shipments in all markets during June and July as we build inventory. Which means, you may experience periods of time when it is unavailable to order if inventory is depleted; it will become available to order again when inventory is replenished.

How to Use the New Plate

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in most die-cutting machines. The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results.  Stampin’ Up! won’t be responsible for replacing products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Lane Thanks Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I’m doing normal Sunday stuff…laundry…card making…getting Mexican food for dinner (Cinco de Mayo, you know!).  And hoping this is my last Sunday in Maryland!

Avengers was excellent.  That’s all I’m going to say.  Except… I hope Wayne wants to see it, too, so I can go a second time! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see the replay, here it is on my YouTube channel!

One of the prettiest of the new suites (in a catalog chock-a-block full of pretty new suites!) is Magnolia Lane.  And that’s where my eye landed for this card.  I used the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and the Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes, plus the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and bundled Magnolia Memories Dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of printed vellum from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack, and used my Stampin’ Blends in Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink to color the BACK of the vellum.  That creates a stained glass look!  Then I used Glue Dots – “hidden” under the colored portions – to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand panel for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large and gorgeous magnolia image from Good Morning Magnolia in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I used the Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Blends again.  I cut the flower with the matching die from the Magnolia Memory Die set.

I also cut a few leaves from Mossy Meadow.  And – I used a die in the set to cut out a few of the small magnolia buds from the Magnolia Lane DSP – how cool is that?!?

I stamped the Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle die.  Finally – I used the edgelit in the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut two of the strips that you see in the background – these are actually the pieces LEFT OVER when you use the edeglit!  These are cut from a piece of the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes – I had some leftover from a previous card.  #SaveScraps 🙂

I built the collage with Liquid Glue – starting with the craft strips, then the large magnolia.  Next is the two Mossy Meadow die cut leaves and one of the die cut DSP magnolias.  Then I popped the sentiment on with Dimensionals.

I used some Glue Dots and adhered a few loops of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack).  Then I added two Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments and the final die cut DSP flower.

On the side, I added a Petal Pink sticker/strip from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and a few loops of the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  A few Pearl Basic Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Tuxedo Black and a Pearl to a large card from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into my Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Card, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

On the front of my Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Envelope, I stamped the large Good Morning Magnolia flower, a bud and some leaves in Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored them with my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends…

…and I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere the liner on the inside!  Guys – these beautiful liners come WITH the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes!  Bonus!

Et voila!  The Magnolia Lane is one of the most stunning suites in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  I love that the Magnolia Memory Dies will cut images from the Magnolia Lane DSP!  As well as the more obvious stamped images from Good Morning Magnolia.  I hope you like!

We’re just a month away from this catalog going live – and all these products being available to you! Or….you COULD join my team NOW – and pick from this suite (plus many others in the Demonstrator Pre-Order!) to fill out your Starter Kit! Remember, you pay just $99 – and select $125 in product – and you’ll get free shipping of your kit, too!  Once you’re “in”, then you’ll get to enjoy at least a 20% discount on EVERYTHING you buy!  Give me shout if you have any questions!
