Happy Saint Patrick’s Day…Think GREEN!

Announcements/ Contests/ Stamping/ Uncategorized

Hey Stampers! Before I head out to a Stampin' Up! party with one of my new team members and her peeps, I wanted to wish you all a Happy Saint Patrick's Day! You know, this is the “day of green” so I thought we should think about Stampin' Up! “greenery” and have a little fun!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day...Think GREEN!

Over the years, we have had quite a few different shades of green in our color collections. What's your favorite Stampin' Up!”Green” – current or past? Mine are Lucky Limeade and Wild Wasabi. Post your answer in the comments section and let's see how many different greens we can name!

Also, did you see the Limerick contest I posted the other day? If not, you can read about it here, and I hope you'll play along. Winner of the contest (NO PURCHASE NECESSARY), will get fifteen handstamped cards with envelopes!

STAMPARATUS WINDOW 2 UPDATESTAMPARATUS WINDOW 2 UPDATE  Happy Friday Stampers! I have some TIGGERiffic news from Stampin' Up! if you reserved your Stamparatus in the Reservation Window 2. This was at the end of 2017. Here is the update direct from SU:

Isn’t it awesome when everything goes pretty much according to plan? We think we can say that about shipments during Stamparatus Window 1, and now we can’t wait for more of our demonstrators and customers to get their Stamparatuses during Window 2.

And we have good news! While we announced that Window 2 would have two different shipment dates—March 20 and one in early April—we’re excited to tell you that all reservations from Window 2 will be ready to ship in March.

Please note that (due to factory shipment schedules) we will stagger our deliveries by market: North America, the South Pacific, and Japan can begin finalizing their orders on Tuesday, March 20, while our demonstrators in Europe—who may experience shipment and customs delays—can begin finalizing their orders approximately one week later.

As you prepare to finalize your order for Window 2, please keep the following in mind:

Take care not to delete the Stamparatus from your order. If it is deleted, we will return it to the order; however, there will be a delay.
You may add other items to your order; also, current promotions will apply depending on when the order is closed. – So if it is during Sale-A-Bration, add to your order and get a SAB item for free!!
Thanks to everyone for their amazing support as we work to get this fantastic stamping tool in the hands of as many demonstrators and customers as possible—before it goes live in the 2018–2019 annual catalog!

I am so  excited about this! I have my Stamparatus and Stamp Slave Dave and I have been busy testing it and figuring out all the tips and tricks to share with you!


You will get an email from Stampin' Up! telling you the Stamparatus has been placed in your shopping cart at my online store. You will just log in at, put in your user credentials and complete your order. ANY questions once you are ready, please call or email me!! I can't wait for you to get your hands on this wonderful new tool!

Wardrobe Malfunction – Rhinestones to the Rescue!

Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Wardrobe Malfunction – Rhinestones to the Rescue! HA! Do I have your attention? Now, this is not a wardrobe malfunction of Olympic proportions but it sure caused me just a wee bit of pause this morning!

I was getting ready for work, wanting to wear a “blingy” t-shirt that hasn't seen the light of day in awhile. I put it on and…GASP!

Wardrobe Malfunction - Rhinestones to the Rescue!

Do you see it? The grey spot in the middle where there SHOULD be a rhinestone? If your eyes are quite sharp you will see a few other little grey spots…but, I digress.

I doubt my co-workers would be looking that closely but…I knew my shirt was missing some of its bling.

AHA I said to myself. What would any self respecting Stampin' Up! demonstrator do? Why, march into the craft room, take out a package of rhinestones, a pair of Paper Snips and start fixing this “wardrobe malfunction”! That's just what I did!


TADA! Here's the finished piece…not bad!


As I looked more closely I saw some of the copperish rhinestones were also missing. Hmmm…Stampin' Up! doesn't sell those.

AHA! We DO sell Stampin' Blends that work beautifully for coloring rhinestones. So, I took out my Bronze marker and got to work. Here is the result.

Wardrobe Malfunction - Rhinestones to the Rescue!

Moral of my story today? Your craft room has an answer for all of life's problems…well, not really. But, it does hold the key to some small fixes!!

Have a TIGGERiffic day my friends!

Happy Friday from the Magical Day Unicorn!

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Holidays / Special Days

Happy Friday! My youngest grandcherub is obsessed with these magical creatures. I'm sure she is just waiting for the day one appears on her doorstep to take her on an adventure! Sometimes I think we adults need to get back some of the “magic” from our childhoods. Like, laying in the front yard, looking up at the clouds and finding all sorts of creatures romping around in the sky…maybe even unicorns!

Have you seen the whimsical images in the Magical Day Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!?

Happy Friday from the Magical Day Unicorn!

Aren't these fun?? My share today uses the unicorn and I can't wait to stamp some of these with my little grand!

The Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper adds a bit of “pop” and I think  sets off the unicorn perfectly! The  Whisper White square, cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies adds another little bit of detail on this whimsical card.

In addition to the stamp set and glimmer paper, this suite of products also has Washi Tape, Designer Series Paper, and Framelits (the framelits can be purchased as part of a bundle, in wood or clear mount, for a 10% savings!).

If you have any unicorn lovers in your home, here are the instructions so you can make some magical cards, too!

Color in the unicorn’s mane and tail using the Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist markers as shown. Die cut the image using the coordinating framelit. Adhere the unicorn to upper portion of the stitched square using Dimensionals.
  4. Stamp the banner image using Bermuda Bay ink on Whisper White scrap cardstock. Curve the photopolymer greeting “Oh Happy Day” on your clear block.
