Easy GIFT CARDS and INSERTS; NEW DECEMBER HOST CODE

Happy Monday in December!!!   What a weekend! Meera was the reason we visited the historic Downsville Museum.  We tied it in with the  Dunn County Pottery Octagonal Schoolhouse with yet another bit of history from John Thomas!    We beat it home before the snow and I settled in the craft room to make a few gift cards.   Look at  this adorable kitty that was saved in my  “wanna make” file .  I fell in love with her in glimmer paper.  Don’ t you love her rhinestone collar? (I apologize for the “pink tone” pictures ..sometimes natural lightbulbs just don’t do it with the camera!!!)

I also made a few cards with the cardstock in the December  Paper Pumpkin Kit which is so versatile- note the lovely branches which are die cut in the kit.  There are also some lovely pine branches in the Night Owl Thinlits (147920) if you missed the November Christmas PP.  The berries were cut from Frosted Bouquet Framelits (147895), retired Pretty Pines Thinlits and/or the  Sprig Punch, then colored with Stampin’ Blends – Cherry Cobbler Dark and Color me Clover Dark.

slot for gift card

This set of pictures shows the inside for the slot which is created on the base layer of the card.  I use the long thin die on the retired Balloon Pop-up Thinlits – it makes a perfect slot every time.  Then I adhere a piece of cardstock on the front side to create a stop for the gift card.   Please leave a comment or question if you want to know more

ALERT: HOLIDAY CATALOG EARLY SELL OUTS!

From Stampin’ Up!

Holiday-Catalog

There is always a risk of products selling out without enough time to reorder and restock inventory before a catalog lifecycle is over. When this does happen, it is usually caused by a higher-than-forecasted demand. However, as we upgraded our inventory management system, there were system communication issues with the current holiday catalog and we have just determined that several products are at high risk of early depletion.

We want to share the list of products with you now so you can plan accordingly for the coming weeks. We have also indicated with an asterisk which of these products will carry over into a future catalog. Although we don’t normally share this information so early, we feel it will be useful as you update your plans for the remainder of this catalog.

  • SNOWFLAKES & STARS WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147819)
  • SANTA’S SIGNPOST FRAMELITS DIES (item 147911)
  • CHICKEN WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147807)

  • MERRY CHRISTMAS THINLITS DIES (item 147912)*
  • FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES (item 147922)

CARRY OVER ITEMS

These items have been identified as “low inventory”, and will not be back before the Holiday Catalog ends. But we’ve been told they will be in a future publication. We don’t know which catalog we’ll see them in again. These are not the only “carry over” items in the catalog, they are just the carry over items on this list.

  • IN THE WOODS FRAMELITS DIES (item 147919)*
  • DETAILED DEER THINLITS DIES (item 147915)*
  • SWIRLS & CURLS TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER (item 147923)*
  • MERRY CHRISTMAS THINLITS DIES (item 147912

We don’t know when these products will go out of stock, but it’s possible some may run out as early as next week. Watch the Inventory Status Report for inventory information on these and other products.CATALOG ITEMS NO LONGER AVAILABLE:

  • SANTA’S WORKSHOP CARDS YOU CAN MAKE IT BUNDLE (item 150095)
  • SANTA’S WORKSHOP MEMORIES & MORE CARD PACK (item 147905)
  • SANTA’S WORKSHOP MEMORIES & MORE CARDS & ENVELOPES (item 147815)

  • JOYOUS NOEL SPECIALTY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER (item 147816)
  • FESTIVE FARMHOUSE ELEMENTS (item 147890)
  • WHITE VELVET SHEETS (item 149619)

This information may create an even higher demand on many of these items, but we feel it’s better to let you know now so you can adapt your plans. Also, even though the upcoming Online Extravaganza sale does not apply to holiday catalog products, it is possible the promotion will have an effect on inventory depletion (as additional non-sale items are often added to promotion orders).

We are working to fix the system communication errors to avoid similar problems in the future. Thank you for your patience.

If you’re interested in getting any of these items before there gone, you can order them in my ONLINE STORE.  I provided the SKU numbers to help with ordering.    Also in regards to the comment about the Online Extravaganza, it is coming next week! Deals start November 23 (Black Friday) through November 28. We won’t know anything more about this until November 20.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need some help with anything~

Have a great stampin’ weekend!  Remember to send me pictures of your creative work!

TAGS AND TIDINGS

TAGS TLC JOES

Did you get a chance to watch the video on Heartfelt Designs facebook page about the Tags and Tidings bundle.  I have had a chance to play with it this week and thought it might be fun to add this set to the buffet to accompany the Mistletoe Tag Kit we have been using.  Copper embossing powder certainly has my vote to make these cute tags that punch the holes needed to attach to gifts, cards, additional tags and more.  It makes 16 tags in one turn of the Big Shot!!!  Aren’t these tag designs just the cutest?  There are many of these ideas on line.  Come play and create your own unique design with paper, punches, ribbon and this bundle.

I have added the new 2018 In Color Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the tags  are just as cute in every color.  You can also stamp them in black ink so they may be colored with Stampin’ Blends for Stampin’ Write markers.  I am excited to share these with you at the buffet on Tuesday, October 9th.  Be sure to watch the video to learn how.

Heading into WINTER WOODS!

HI STAMPERS!

Just a quick post on the card that we made at the September buffet with the Winter Woods Bundle.  There are so many possibilities with this set….it reminds me of Lovely as a Tree.   The last picture I posted was poor at best…this is a better one.  I’m not sure about the “twig tree”.   it actually looks better in real life than in the photograph.  I’m working on one with a snowy pine and maybe some of that new shimmer paint.  Please leave a note in the comment section if you are interested.

ENDING AUGUST WITH NEW IDEAS

Hey Stampers….

I am having fun working on some new ideas, some inspiration from a veteran stamper  and cleaning up some old cards sitting around waiting to be completed!  Ha!  I never seem to run out of those.  Do you?

WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THAT DSP?

Such a great idea on the Demonstrator Website….here is a fun way of using up that old DSP.  Anyone interested in making paper flowers?  Just let me know and I’ll be sure to show you how at the nest buffet on September 11th.  

This is such a simple card to make but you can dress it up to be so elegant!  Want it on the next buffet?…just let me know by commenting or sending me an email.!

ALWAYS INSPIRED BY MY UPLINE – AMY RICHEL:

I love going to Amy Richel’s buffet in Eau Claire…fresh, new ideas.  I usually take home my cards to finish them – this one really inspired me.  So I CASED her card and made it my own.   Just a little scratching around the surface and adding a tree and a bow turned it into my “faux vintage” look.  Thanks Amy!!!  Love the blues to chase the blues with the Nature’s Roots Bundle #148353

NEW WINTER WOODS BUNDLE:    I posted a video today on my Facebook page about the  Winter Woods Bundle.  I love that  Stampin’Up ties it to the Lovely as a Tree and Rooted i Nature stamp sets.  Here is a card from Amy’s buffet that was all the rage.  I may have to go to the next one  just to make this card…it’s lovely!  And here is the bundle from the Holiday Catalog.  You may order it beginning September 5th after 3AM.

CARDS ON THE BUFFET – TUESDAY AUGUST 21ST USING THIS SET!

I can’t take full credit for these cards…Amy Richel supplied the base for the Razzleberry card at her last  buffet…it was easy to CASE it and change the colors.  The next card was also a CASED card and I embellished it by giving it a vintage touch. I actually prefer it without the lined DSP.  I had a couple of vintage buttons which I added.  There will be buttons in the kit – sorry,  not these choices.  Remember that this set is available now thru Aug. 31 or while supplies last.  Get the full scoop on the Color Your Seasons promotion

I can’t wait to do more with the line art images which are great for simple stamping, coloring techniques, watercoloring, heat embossing, and so many techniques that I can’t even list them all!  B TW – the watercoloring pencils include many beautiful colors.  They are of the same good quality as the first set that were offered.  

Eager to stamp with you on Tuesday!  Come expecting!

Thanks for stopping by today and HaPpY Stampin’!
