NEW WOOD-MOUNT BOXES

Standard

Stampin’ Up! has finally come up with a solution for the wood block stamps!!

Introducing the new wood-mount stamp set packaging! These new cases are similar to our clear-mount boxes and fit perfectly on the shelf right next to them. They also have the images and stamp set name on the spine to make your search for the right set even easier.

Starting May 31 all wood-mount sets will come in this new packaging (sneak peek sets will also be in the new boxes during the preorder). And empty cases will be available with the launch of the new catalog. That means you can transfer all your old sets to these new boxes! There will even be a template for you to create your own label for your old stamp sets (available May 31). A pack of four half-size cases (3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″) will sell for $4.95 and a pack of four full-size cases (7-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) will be $6.95.

Get ready for all the exciting new products in the catalog–especially the new wood-mount boxes!

And don’t forget, and orders you get from me in April will result in the brand new Annual catalog showing up in your mailbox in May for free.

A HEADS UP FROM PAPER PUMPKIN

Standard

A note from Paper Pumpkin:

hey-there-friends

Hi everyone!

I already visited many of you with my very first kit last month. If you haven’t signed up, it’s really easy-just visit www.mypaperpumpkin.com.

If you’ve already joined, just wanted to give you a heads up. I promised to let you know when you’d be able to skip a month of receiving me or even cancel your Paper Pumpkin kits completely (so sad, I’ll stop coming.) Those two options are now available-just visit www.mypaperpumpkin.com, log in to your account, and click “Manage My Pumpkin” in the blue box under the “You Have Joined” red banner.

Make sure to skip or cancel me by the 10th of the month to skip that month’s kit or cancel your kits completely.

And, coming soon, we’ll also have the feature to notify you via e-mail when any of your customers cancel or skip a month. We’ll let you know when this feature is available.

It’s been nice chatting with you. Can’t wait for our next creativity escape.

Triple Time Stamping

Standard

Hi everyone,

I have never done the triple time technique before, but I had been wanting to try it. The card turned out pretty well, except I don’t like how the words blended in too much with the green. I had already spent way too much time on this, so I decided to leave it and correct when I make another one. The technique was pretty simple, the sizes of the very vanilla are 4″ x 5.25″ , 3″ x 4.25″, and 2″ x 3.25″. The Primrose petal was cut a 1/4″ larger for each dimension. I used a very very small piece of painters tape to hold my layers together while I stamped.

Hope you enjoy.

Materials

Stamps: Secret Garden, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Inks: Summer starfruit, primrose petal, gumball green

Paper: Primrose petal, very vanilla

PHOTOPOLYMER: BOMBS AWAY BIRTHDAY!

Standard

Im excited to announce that second photopolymer stamp set is now available. Bombs Away Birthday ($13.95, item 133411) is a fun, unique set that will certainly bring a smile to anyone. Try it out today! Click here to go to my online store or contact me!

I have yet to get myself a set of these photopolymer stamps, but if you have a set, I would LOVE to hear your opinion. Here is what Stampin’ Up! is saying…

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. .

DO YOU DREAM IN COLOR? WE DO!

Standard

Announcing our Color Refresh! We love color and we know that you do too. Color is fundamental to who we are and what we offer. It’s important for us to stay up-to-date with color trends so we are thrilled to share our updated line of colors, and hope you will be as excited as we are by the new possibilities!

Why now? In 2010, Stampin’ Up! did a big color renovation and shared their plans for smaller color refreshes every three to five years to keep the colors on trend. Well it has been three years and they are excited to announce that the upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalog will include 10 new colors (most of which are returning In Colors from previous years)! We are welcoming back some of your favorites, moving some colors around, and introducing one brand-new color, so take a look!

Demo_Current-Update_Color-Refresh_NA

Beginning on April 4, 2013, all retiring/discontinued color products (i.e. ink, paper, ribbon, accessories, etc.) will be available only while supplies last. This means that some products will not be available through the retired list period. We did anticipate increased demand and based our forecasts for these retiring colors on historical sales information from previous color transitions. However, even with the most careful planning, the response to a transition of this nature can surprise everyone–including you in your own business and personal purchases. We encourage you to let your customers know that any of our retiring color products are only available while supplies last so they can get their favorites and look forward to the exciting colors coming in the 2013-2014 annual catalog. And also announced today, free shipping is going on April 6-8, 2013, which would be a great time for you and your customers to get your favorites before they are gone! (Free shipping is for North America only.)

Want to get some of the new color products for FREE? Watch for more information on April 12 for an exciting opportunity to get the new amazing colors for free.
