New Photopolymer - Endless Wishes

Here is a fun new Photopolymer set called Endless Wishes.  I love the handwritten font in this set.  It is a steal at only $13.95 for the whole set!

Endless_wishes

Stampin' Up! has searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And they've found it.  The new photopolymer is an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. The top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of the firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options. 

•Top-quality photopolymer that gives a perfectly stamped image every time
•They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement!
•Can you say sticky? (Don’t worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
•They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.

I could go on, but you should you try them for yourself

Here are some samples using the set, you can click on them to view them larger:

Another Great Year with the Celebration Add-On Kit

Had some extra stitched garland from the Bermuda Bay Celebration Add-On Kit.  I knew these fun stitched circles would look great on card and I was right.

The Another Great Year birthday stamp set is NOT carrying over to the new catalog, so if you need it, order it now!

Another_great_year_celebration_kit

I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop the circles over the Designer Series Paper and then added some fun embellishments to the circles.  Those Jumbo Rhinestones are on the Retiring Accessories list.

Timeless Talk Fun Fold Swap

2014_Grand_Vacation20% rebate during my While I am Crusin' Special.  Place your orders in my Online Store using either of these Hostess Codes
R3EM9VPA or 26QVUQSD...get all the DETAILS HERE.

 

**Scroll down for a link to the Weekly Deals.

This is the card I created to swap on the Stampin' Up! cruise. It uses the Timeless Talk, and Remembering Your Birthday stamp sets and the Merry Minis Punch Pack.

Timeless_talk_funfold

I added a strip of Pistachio Pudding Designer Series Paper from the 2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.

Here is a shot of the card opened.

Timeless_talk_funfold_open

It folds up and is secured to a quarter sheet of card stock so it fits in a Medium Envelope.

Here are the directions to create this:

*Cut a piece of card stock 4 x 9-3/4.
*Place it in the Stampin' Trimmer with the short side at the top and line the long side at the 1-1/2" mark.
*Cut from the 3" mark down to the 7-1/2" mark.
*Without removing the piece from the trimmer, place your fingers at the top of the paper and pull it down while rotating it to the left 90 degrees so the long side is now at the top.
*Slide the piece to the 3" mark and run the scoring blade down to the 2-1/2" mark (this is the cut line)
*Slide the piece over to the 5-1/4" mark and score all the way down.
*Slide it over to the 7-1/2" mark and run the scoring blade from the 2-1/2" mark down. (cut line down)
*Start folding, use the picture as a guide, from the left, the first score line you see will be folded so it points up at you, this is called a Mountain Fold.  The score line that goes all the way done has two folds on it, the top fold points away from you (Valley Fold) and the botton fold( smaller one) folds up towards you.  The last small fold is away from you (Valley Fold)
*Apply adhesive to the very back (not the part that will pull out) and adhere to a card base that measures 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.

Thanks to Julie Davison for the idea.

You have two options to stay connected with me:

My 8th Annual "While I Am Crusin' Special"

Friday, my family and I (yes, we are taking our kiddos this year) will be traveling to Ft. Lauderdale for the annual Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip.  We will board Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world right now and head for Labadee, Haiti, Falmouth, Jamaica and Cozumel, Mexico.  We are very excited about this trip and have all of you to thank for it.  I appreciate each and everyone of you and want to say thank you! 

This is my 11th year with Stampin' Up! and I have been so blessed by the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful company.  Stampin' Up! has given me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people and to develop friendships with many of you.  I wouldn't have met so many of you if it weren't for the opportunity of being in Stampin' Up!  I consider you my friends not just my customers!  I am so grateful to all my downline members and those of you who have ordered through me so I could take my family on this trip.
