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! 🙂

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 Plate 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!

Get ALL the details here – and then head over to my Online Store to get yours ordered!!

Stampin’ Up! Waterfront in Every Season!

Good morning!  From Atlanta!  Whoo-hoo!  Made it home in good time – pretty easy all the way around.  Watched a movie and did a few blog posts on the ride home!

Arrived to a shocking re-introduction to humidity!  Yikes!  And a dog who can’t hold his licker! 😉

My card for you today is made with the lovely In Every Season stamp set – an image-only set with 12 wonderful flowers – one for every month!  So I used that and a couple of sentiments from the Waterfront set.  I put it all on top of some soft Tea Room Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Very Vintage Waterfront!

Happy happy HAWWWMP day!!  Hope your week is going good – and that you’re ready to slide on down to the weekend!  I know I am!

On yesterday’s blog hop, my friend Sue Prather made a gorgeous card that I fell in love with as soon as it loaded on my computer!  You can check it out right here.

I decided I was going to CASE it – cuz I needed a card just like it!  So I got started – and then…well, sort of deviated.  I ended up using the Waterfront stamp set and Wood Textures DSP – just like Sue – but I added some sentiments from the new Host-Exclusive Very Vintage stamp set.  And made it more feminine – it’s going to an 80 year old woman who lives in Colorado!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Snowy Waterfront Night

Good morning, y’all!  I’m sort of betting I didn’t win the Big Lottery last night, so this isn’t my farewell blog…

Not that I’d quit making cards or blogging if I won.  Nope.  I’d still be right here – OTHER things would go away! 😉

My card – speaking of – uses the wonderful new stamp set called Waterfront.  Once again, I let a sample in the 2018 Occasions catalog inspire me.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge – welcome back, y’all! – going across the top and on the diagonal from the bottom left…

I started with a Dapper Denim panel and stamped the wonderful perfect awesome Pine trees image (y’all – I have a new favorite!!) across the panel about mid-way down.  I stamped the image twice without re-inking several times, to create a forest.  Then I pulled out my Whisper White Craft Ink pad.  

I stamped the moon first and then started adding “snow” – this is a wonderful image in the Waterfront stamp set.  I also added drifts of snow across the bottom.  Once I had it as snowy as I wanted it to be, I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Whisper White mat and then to a Dapper Denim mat.

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere a few loops of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine to the card front in preparation for the rest of the elements.

I stamped the Waterfront sentiment in Whisper White Craft Ink on a piece of Dapper Denim and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelit.  When it was dry, it was a little lighter than I wanted – so I traced the words with a non-Stampin’ Up! White Gel Pen.

I also cut a larger circle of Dapper Denim with a Stitched Shapes Framelits die, and stamped more of the Waterfront trees in Dapper Denim.

Finally, I cut a slightly larger scalloped circle in Whisper White and a snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  I adhered all the pieces together with Liquid Glue and popped it over the Baker’s Twine with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A White Perfect Accents dot in the middle of the snowflake finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the second sentiment from the Waterfront set in Dapper Denim on a Whisper White panel and added more of the trees across the bottom.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Dapper Denim mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Dapper Denim Waterfront trees on the front…

…and then I added more snow – in Dapper Denim – across the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all!!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!  This was a stamp set that instantly drew ooh’s, aah’s and a really unseemly number of whoo-hooo’s when it was introduced at OnStage.  And I guess you can see why!  I LOVE this set!!  And I hope you do, too – and are busily clicking on it in the product list below to get it for yourself!!

Finn Fan Fix  

It’s been rather miserably cold here.  Now – admittedly, we have no snow (which you can decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing – we kind of like not having snow!) – and we’re not in the middle of a “bomb cyclone”.  Who named it that anyway?!?

But – it’s cold.  And one of the consequences of the cold is frozen water troughs and buckets for the horses.  Which leads to lots of giant…ICE CUBES!  All over the place (from where we toss the ice out).   

Well.  The man loves him some ice cubes!  When we get ice out of the freezer in the house he hears it and comes running to get one.

Imagine…ice cubes from horse water! Just a little icky and oh-so-yummy to crunch and munch.

Or…toss around and play with…

Funny little man.
