Reserve Yours Now!

Stamparatus 2

It’s big news when something breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it! I'm super excited about this new tool - I was part of a LEADER TO LEADER program that had a say in it's development and it was a long process. I'm over the moon to see the Stamparatus available early!!!

The deadline to reserve yours is Saturday, December 30th - if you don't reserve one you'll have to wait until June to get your hands on it.

Here's a video to show you how easy it is to reserve your Stamparatus:  

 

 

The cost is $49 and you won't be charged for it until Stampin' Up! receives this brand new product in their warehouse and sends you an email to confirm your reservation. At that time you can confirm or not - it's up to you. Delivery Date: Approx. March 19, 2018

Click here to RESERVE YOURS NOW

 

While there are other products on the market that have the same idea in mind - this one is JUST AMAZING!!!! The features and the double windows are going to rock our inky world! Check out the video to see for yourself:

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

  • 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

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. Demonstrators and 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.
  • Limit is 1 tool per customer per reservation window. 
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to 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.
 

Reservation Window: December 5 – 30, 2017

Delivery Date: Approx. March 19, 2018

You'll find all the supplies I used for these cards down below my joke.

 

  Joke

 3 Ladies in a sauna

 
THREE WOMEN, TWO YOUNGER,
 
AND ONE SENIOR CITIZEN,
 
WERE SITTING NAKED IN A SAUNA.
SUDDENLY THERE WAS A BEEPING SOUND.
 
THE YOUNG WOMAN PRESSED HER FOREARM
 
AND THE BEEP STOPPED.
THE OTHERS LOOKED AT HER QUESTIONINGLY. 'THAT WAS MY PAGER,' SHE SAID.
 
I HAVE A MICROCHIP UNDER
 
THE SKIN OF MY ARM.
A FEW MINUTES LATER, A PHONE RANG.
 
THE SECOND YOUNG WOMAN
 
LIFTED HER PALM TO HER EAR.
WHEN SHE FINISHED, SHE EXPLAINED,
 
'THAT WAS MY MOBILE PHONE.
 
I HAVE A MICROCHIP IN MY HAND.'
THE OLDER WOMAN FELT VERY LOW -TECH.
 
NOT TO BE OUT DONE, SHE DECIDED
 
SHE HAD TO DO SOMETHING
 
JUST AS IMPRESSIVE.
 
SHE STEPPED OUT OF THE SAUNA
 
AND WENT TO THE BATHROOM.
SHE RETURNED WITH A PIECE OF TOILET PAPER HANGING FROM HER REAR END.
THE OTHERS RAISED THEIR EYEBROWS
 
AND STARED AT HER.
THE OLDER WOMAN FINALLY SAID .....
 
WELL, WILL YOU LOOK AT THAT ....
 
I'M GETTING A FAX!!
When you stop laughing, send this to those who will appreciate it.
 
Got to love the old gals !!!!

Merry Christmas

Pexels-photo-267067

Christmas

(by  M.E. Miro )

Christmas is more than a day in December
It’s all of those things that we love to remember
Its carolers singing familiar refrains
Bright colored stockings and shiny toy trains
Streamers of tinsel and glass satin balls
Laughter that rings through the house and its halls
Christmas is more than a day in December
Its the magic and the love
That we’ll always remember

Wishing you and your family

a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Feature Friday - Double Z Fold Video

Fullsizeoutput_4cd

OH MY - I had so much fun making these DOUBLE Z FOLD cards featuring the HALF FULL stamp set and the YEAR OF CHEER SPECIALTY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER. Copper is all the rage this year and it certainly does a great job of making this card super spectacular - don't you think?

Fullsizeoutput_4cb

 

The background on this paper is white - but I chose to color it on a couple of my designs. You can see all the details in this video tutorial:

 

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.

Dimensions:

  • Card Base - 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 2-3/4" & 5-1/2"
  • Inside layer - 8-1/2" x 2-7/8" scored at 2-7/8" & just a hair under 5-3/4"
  • Designer Series Paper - 4" x 5-1/4" and 2 @ 2-1/2" x 4"
  • Whisper White scraps

This card uses an Elegant Eggplant base with Rich Razzleberry for the Z fold layer. I also used Elegant Eggplant and Rich Razzleberry ink to color the designer series paper.

This card is all Rich Razzleberry.

And this card uses the Elegant Eggplant base with the designer series paper without altering the color.

Here's a view from the top.

This HALF FULL stamp set is so fun! It has some Christmas greetings in it and as you can see - it's great for birthdays too!

Instructions:

  1. Fill test tube with bath salts,  Wrap the multi-colored Year of Cheer Washi tape around the cork and test tube.  Tie a 9” piece of the Silver Mini Tinsel Trim around the test tube and make a bow.
  2. Stamp “for you” in Basic Gray ink on a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock.  Cut out using the tag from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  Adhere under the Silver Tinsel Trim with a mini glue dot.
  3. Fold along the score lines of the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  The first score is a valley, then a mountain, another mountain and the last score is a valley fold.
  4. The top of the holder is the 1-1/2” section.  Wrap a strip of the thin silver Year of Cheer Washi tape around the top of Year of Cheer DSP.   In the middle of the 2nd section of the Year of Cheer DSP punch a 3/4” circle.  In the 4th section punch another 3/4” circle that is slightly off center.  This helps keep the test tube securely in the holder.
  5. Place strips of Tear & Tape adhesive on the back of  the top section of the Year of Cheer DSP and the last section.  Adhere to the Pacific Point card stock matching the top and bottom.
