Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers Are Coming On November 1!

Announcements/ Product Information

Hey Stampers! I have some very exciting news to share with you today! Just in time for all of your holiday projects, Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers Are Coming On November 1! You are going to LOVE these new alcohol markers. The initial offering will include 12 popular Stampin' Up! colors and these markers will be featured in upcoming catalogs as well. Extensive in-house testing has been done for evaporation and life of the markers.  Stampin' Up! is very happy with the results; you can be confident you are getting a quality product!

Stampin' Blends Are Coming On November 1!

With the exception of Ivory and Bronze, each of the 12 colors has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack. Each marker has a brush and fine-point tip so you'll be able to apply the right amount of color just where you need it.

Here is a short video to introduce you to these markers:

In addition, I want to share the detailed brochure with you so you'll have all the information.


If you do have any questions, I invite you to leave them in the comments section below or send me a message and I'll be glad to answer them! As we get closer to November 1, I'll have more samples and a special bonus offer to tell you about…stay tuned!

Two New Stampin’ Up! Fall Promotions


Hey stampers!  Today I wanted to share two new Stampin' Up! Fall Promotions that I think you'll love! The first promotion is to celebrate World Card Making Day on Saturday, October 7. This day is the perfect time to make a card to send to someone special AND save 15%!

Keeping in mind that a few of the stamp sets featured in this sale also have framelits available… which means they are available in a bundle. The regular priced bundles are actually a better deal then purchasing the discounted stamp set and the framelits at full price. Bundles are already priced 10% off.

Here is a printable PDF flyer of all sale products:


**Keep in mind that a few of the stamp sets featured in this sale also have coordinating framelits dies, which means there is a bundle available. The bundles are regularly priced at 10% off so if you want both the stamp set and framelits, the bundle is a better deal! If you are only interested in the stamp set and the framelits aren't in your plans, this sale is for you!

Let me point out a bonus deal you might overlook in the flyer. If you purchase ONE Fast Fuse Adhesive, you will get TWO refills for free! This adhesive is our strongest one and works great for card layers as well as 3D items like boxes and bags.

Two New Stampin' Up! Fall Promotions

If you enjoy using our Designer Series Paper, then you'll love the 2nd sale; Buy 3 get 1 free! Click here to see the beautiful papers and designs that are available for this sale.

Have a great day! If you'd like to take advantage of one or both of the Two New Stampin' Up! Fall Promotions, my online store is just a click away!

Drum roll please…registration is now open for my new Painted Harvest Online Class. This Stampin' Up! stamp set is one of the hottest new fall products from our Holiday Catalog.

Registration is Now Open for my NEW Painted Harvest Online Class

I'll be teaching this class on Facebook LIVE on October 5, 2017 at 7:00 pm CST. You can watch it then OR, since you'll have lifetime access once you purchase, you can watch anytime and as many times as you like!


Once you register, I'll send you the link to join the secret Facebook group. Click on the link and then “join group”. I'll approve you into the group and that's it! You'll be ready to participate in the fun!

If you'd like to stamp along with me during the class, you can purchase this stamp set by itself or save 10% and purchase the bundle, which also includes a leaf punch. During the class I'll be showing a bonus card that shows you a fun idea for the punch.

Painted Harvest With Burlap Background

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Online Classes/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

The Painted Harvest Stamp Set is certainly one of my top 5 sets in the Holiday Catalog! This Painted Harvest With Burlap Background card would even be perfect as a place card for your seasonal table! Instead of the word “hello”, personalize each card with your guests' name. The Burlap Background Stamp adds just the right amount of “texture” to this card and makes it pop a bit more than just having all the white space.

This stamp set also comes as part of a bundle, along with a unique leaf punch. If you purchase the bundle instead of buying each item separately, you'll save 10%!

Painted Harvest With Burlap Background

I LOVE this stamp set so much that I've designed a class featuring 3 projects (and a bonus card showing you an idea for using the leaf punch!)  The exciting thing is this is going to be a Facebook Live Class. You can join me as I'm making the projects and teaching OR you can watch it later at you convenience. You'll have lifetime access to the class so you can watch it as many times as you like! I'll have the details and a link to purchase my class here on Friday, September 22. If you want to stamp along during the class, go ahead and order the bundle today!
