New Annual Catalog is Live Today!

The new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goes live today at 12:00pm Mountain Time, 3:00pm Eastern Time! Click here to view the catalog online. Please note:

  • The new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines and accessories shown on page 170 are not available yet for purchase. I will let you know when it will be available once Stampin’ Up! announces a date.
  • Until further notice, there will be a limit of one each of the five new InColor reinkers per order. The manufacturer of the ink refill bottles has had to shift production to medical product production so Stampin’ Up! is only able to fill the bottles with whatever inventory they have on hand for the time being.
  • Snail tape has been retired and two new adhesives have been introduced to take its place. Stampin’ Seal is for holding cardstock and ribbon and Stampin’ Seal+ is a heavier adhesive for 3D projects and to secure heavier layers. Refills are available for both tapes. See page 162 in the catalog for further details.

If you would like a copy of the catalog please click on “contact me” at the top of this page and I would be happy to send one out to you.

Want to earn extra Stampin’ Rewards? From June 3rd-30th, when you place an order of $250 or more you will receive an additional $25 in Stampin’ Rewards!! This is in addition the standard host rewards as described on page 187 in the catalog.

If you’ve considered joining Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator or as a “happy discount shopper” now is a great time. By joining you will get a minimum 20% discount on all orders. In addition to purchasing $125 worth of products in your starter kit for only $99, you get to pick any bundle for free!

Share Sunshine with Peaceful Poppies

Today I’m sharing a bunch of cards I made with the Share Sunshine PDF download. Last week, Sara Douglas, CEO of Stampin’ Up! hosted a Facebook Live session as part of SU’s Virtual Day of Service. All employees were given a kit and an instruction sheet to make cards to send to family, friends and those on the frontline in the pandemic. Demonstrators and customers were able to join Sara from her home as she and her family made their cards. The instruction sheet includes a template for cutting a piece of 12″ x 12″ sheet of Designer Series Paper and some suggested card layouts. You can use any DSP in your collection for this project. I chose to use two sheets from the Peaceful Poppies DSP, which will be retiring next week. I made ten cards that I will be sending out. They were quick and easy to put together and I had fun making them.

I printed out the pages I chose to use on Whisper White cardstock and in my printer settings I used one of the premium settings because the cardstock is heavier than a regular sheet of paper. All of the greetings on front and insides of the cards are cut from the PDF download using a variety of punches and dies. I also added some bakers twine and some of the Peaceful Poppies Elements. NO stamping is required!

If you’d like to view the replay of Sara’s Facebook Live session, click here.

This initiative is part of Stampin’ Up!’s Make a Difference program and 100% of the proceeds from the purchase of the download will go directly to the World Health Organization’s COVID Solidarity Response Fund and United Way’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund. The cost of the download is $12. Click here to purchase the download. Once your purchase goes through you will receive the download via email.

Share Sunshine COVID-19 Giveback

Stampin’ Up! is a very giving company that has supported many worthwhile causes over the years through donating a percentage of sales of specially designed products. With a worldwide pandemic upon us, here is information about their new initiative. Stampin’ Up! is committed to making a difference in our global communities and caring about people first.

As part of our Making a Difference program we’re offering a product giveback opportunity to support organizations that are helping COVID-19 frontline responders and communities vulnerable to the pandemic.

You can purchase the Share Sunshine PDF Download and we will donate 100% of the proceeds to COVID-19 efforts.

The Share Sunshine PDF Download is a digital stamp set that’s packed with both lighthearted and heartfelt sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we’re currently experiencing–including many ideas that came from demonstrators and customers! You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using our Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!  I hope you will consider supporting this great cause.  For further information and to purchase the download, click here.

The PDF is 15 pages long and the first two pages provide a list of coordinating colors, stamp sets and dies or punches that you can use with the images.  There are multiples of the images, some in black ink and some in a variety of colors – no stamping necessary!!

Here are two quick cards I made that also use retiring products.

This card uses Mango Melody and Whisper White cardstock, Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper and the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. The greeting and mat were cut with Stitched Rectangles dies.

This card uses Old Olive and Whisper White cardstock, Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper, die from Painted Labels dies, Peaceful Poppies Sequins.
