Sneak Peek: Gift Card Thinlits Video

gift card thinlit LH

I love the Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog!

I know some might say “oh, of course Linda has to say that, she’s a demonstrator, she’s supposed to say that!” but seriously, my friends that have seen it and my team, all say the same thing. THIS is a good one.

I think they should be arriving to customers by the 3rd week in August and it goes LIVE on August 28th!  Plenty of time to start thinking about Halloween, Thanksgiving and Winter/Christmas – all things in the Holiday catty.

As demonstrators, we get to order early to play with the new products and take for a test drive.

I played a bit with the new Gift Card thinlit set and the Nordic designer paper and made a video for you:

If you want the recipe and cutting measurements, I have it stored on my Stamping School free video page.  Once you are there, click the video and the PDF links are right under the video frame.

Hope you like it!

A nod to comic book excitement, this set has a full stylized alphabet with builder pieces to create your own customized superhero or villain.

Woodgrains and Weekly Deals

Hi all!  I made these 2 cards a while back for a sketch challenge using the Stampin’ Up scallop tag topper punch.

I do love that Woodgrain background stamp!  Everything on these are Stampin’ Up:

20140408-083324.jpg

For this one below, I used So Saffron card stock and ink with the Woodgrain stamp.  I punched the tag from the embossed SU paper called Naturals Composition. Coral, Garden Green and Saffron markers for the flower (from Simple Stems)  and Baked Brown Sugar ink for greeting.

20140408-083336.jpg
The card below is square, 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Crumbcake card stock and ink for the woodgrain stamp, Pacific Point for the circle image. (I haven’t used Pacific in a really long time!)  Soft Suede cs for the scalloped tag, embossed with the honeycomb folder. The little gold pearls are just the white pearls and I colored them with my gold Sharpie pen. Then I threw a few sequins on there.

Where’s the flower stamp from?  Serene Silhouettes, page 64 of the SU annual catalog.  I hadn’t used that stamp from the set at all but the others are well used!

 weekly deals

Here are this week’s Stampin’ Up Weekly Deals!  4/8-4/14 Only.

weekly deals 4-8

Here’s my 2 cents on this week’s deals:

I think the Punch Pack is a staple! I use those 3 a LOT.  I’m worried they are on sale since it may mean they are retiring in May when the Retiring stamps list comes out.  I hope not or if they do, I sure hope they replace them with something as great!

The sparkle glimmer brads (they should really be called glitter brads) are fun but the legs sometimes stick together.  I have to use my paper piercer to pry them open since they are ‘glimmered’ all the way down the legs.  Annoying but the brads look nice once you get them on the card :)

Can’t go wrong with Baker’s Twiner, ever.

The Gingham Wheel is a nice border.  I unmounted mine and use it on a block (members, see my video in Stamping School)

I used the SU mounting foam after I ripped it off the wheel.  I use them so much more that way!

That “make a cake” stamp set is small.  I got it free at a conference 2 years ago and it’s still unused.  The tiny butterflies are useful but I have yet to use the cake.  Maybe it’s just me.

The Secret Garden framelits go with the Secret Garden stamp set on page 94 and also 2 of the stamps from the Simple Stems in the Occasions catalog on page 33.  I hope this means that they are making more flowers to coordinate with it for the next catalog?

and on to this Week’s Weekly Deals! Some good ones this week, too…

weeky deals 3-11

To see them individually, go HERE .  Once there, click on each item for description and item number.   Of course here are m 2 cents on this week’s deals.  The circles dies are a good deal but you get more circles with our Circles Collection Framelits instead.  If you are wanting to cut fabric or metals or thicker craft materials, then these dies are the way to go.

The Dress form Pop -n Cuts will need the base to pop into. See page 188, for 39.95.  You will also need extended cutting plates for your Big Shot to cut it all.

Love the 2 embossing folders and the Set of 2 mini folders on sale this week.  The mini set of 2  measure 4-1/2″ x 2-7/8″ each and the oval coordinates with the Extra-Large oval punch we still sell.

The Peek-a-boo die is a great deal, too.  I still use mine and it can’t go out of style. It creates windows and doors, perfect for Advent calendars, etc.  Uses standard cutting plates.

Off to work on this week’s Stamping School videos.  I have NO idea what to create this week and being on vacation has gotten me off my stamping mojo.  Send me some artsy vibes!

Here’s a fun new tool for your crafting toolbox and it’s just released today!

  This little guy makes an impression!  Literally. It’s a mini big shot that only embosses.  29.95  Item #132657

Now, it can never take the place of the Big Shot, which cuts everything as well as embosses.  This lil guy would be good for crops or craft days where you want to take an embossing machine with you.  It’s light!  Or maybe I may get one for my classes when I want to emboss at one  table and cut with my Big Shot at another table.
