Stamping with Embossing Folders

Stamping ideas first today!

  Stampin’ Up home office did a quick video on stamping with embossing folders.  I remember Carrie Cudney from SU doing a great demo using this technique back in 2012 at convention and I made her card using the stamped folder technique.  You can see the delicate design of the Vintage Wallpaper folder (this was from 2012, so it’s retired now)  stamped in Crumb Cake ink on the Vanilla card stock:

(The embossed area is called Faux Patina which I did as a Stamping School video.  So if you are on there, search for Faux Patina)

Here’s the SU home office video for Folder Stamping.  If you are viewing this post from your email you may need to come to the blog HERE to view:

Grab some ink and a folder to try it out!

Big or small, FREE shipping on it ALL!

Header_FreeShipping_Demo_4.2015_US

Stampin’ Up shipping is 10% if the order is 69.95 or more or a minimum 6.95 if under that amount.   We all know how much it costs to mail things today and so when a company offers free shipping, it’s a big deal!

Send a small $5 gift to a friend or buy yourself something big and save a bunch!  Either way, it’s a nice treat until April 10th!

Get those 2013-2015 reinkers that are going out this year! see my post HERE about those colors retiring.

——————————————————————————————————————————

Speaking of retiring…I cannot believe we only have 2 more months until we have a new catalog!

The Stampin’ Up annual catalog Retiring List comes out April 21st!  I’ll post that here as soon as I get it.

I wonder if Lovely as a Tree will stay in another year?

With the new catalog coming, I’d like to get an idea who needs a new catalog!  I’ll have one set aside for all my regular customers from this past year but fill out the form so I can be sure I have correct addresses.

(If you are a current SU demonstrator or are currently purchasing through another demo, contact them for your catalog.)

The contact form below may not work for all users so if it’s wonky, just email your name and address to Linda@stampingschool.com

Pssst….Free Shipping Starts Monday

Free Shipping on Starting Monday, April 6th – April 10th!

No stop signs, No speed limits….no minimum order!

That’s all the info I have for now but wanted to give you a heads up.

 By the way, the retiring stamps and accessories list will be out soon. The 2013-2015 In Colors will be retiring so be sure to get those ink refills if you have the ink pads!  Those usually sell out quickly so do a quick inventory to see if you need those or paper. (personally, I’m rooting for Coastal Cabana to stay in!)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Video: Printed Designer Vellum 2 ways

Hi All!

Remember a few days ago I told you about the 4 new Sale-a-bration freebies that Stampin’ Up is adding for March?

I did a quick show & tell video so you can see those ‘in person’.

Pardon the HUGE bruise on my hand, I tried to cover it up but it’s determined to make an appearance.  I have small veins apparently and had some IV issues during a recent eye surgery (yes, I’m seeing better!)

The new printed vellum is really pretty, isn’t it?

Whether you color it with markers or dry emboss it or just leave it on its own, it’s my favorite SAB item this year.

Someone asked me how Stampin’ Up got the lemons stamped 3x but not overlapping. It’s a basic technique called Masking, a real staple for stamping when putting flowers in vases or a bunny peeking out of a basket.   I like to use Post-it notes with the sticky all over the note for masking but you can use copy paper or a very thin vellum.  Here is a video from the Stampin’ Up Corporate training team:
