Single Stamps Available until January 2, 2013

First of all, on Monday, October 29, Stampin Up! is having a stamp sale!

All stamps are 15% off, on Monday ONLY. Look through our catalog and let me know which sets you need for Holiday projects or any sets that have been on your wish list. Monday is the time to order them!

Starting at 12:00 AM (MT) and ending at 11:50 PM (MT), almost every stamp we sell will be 15 percent off.  
The sale includes all stamps in our current catalogs including:
  • Background stamps
  • Personalized name stamps
  • Cookie press stamps
  • Single stamps
The sale DOES NOT include
  • Hostess sets
  • Bundled stamp sets
  • Digital stamp brush sets
 There is no minimum purchase, and no limit to the number of stamps you can order.
Stamp prices in the Online Store will be changed for October 29 only to reflect the 15 percent discount.
Single Stamps are Available!

Several weeks ago, Stampin'Up! announced that until January 2nd, 2013, we have the opportunity to purchase single stamps from the Word Play, Perfectly Penned, and Seasonal Sayings Stamp sets.  Based on the interest, it appears both demonstrators and customers love the single stamps.  Therefore, Stampin' Up! has added TEN MORE individual images - including three images that you have never seen before!  

Click on any flier pictured below for a larger view of the stamps offered.

  • These stamps are available on any order type-customer, demonstrator, workshop, or online. 
  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
  • Stampin' Up! will not promote this offer on the Customer site until November 1, but you can order directly from me.
  • These won't be sent to you in our typical cases or packaging; they'll be packaged in cello bags. If you'd like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
  • The stamps won't come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you'll need to buy a block separately if you don't already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyers. 
  • There's no limit on how many pieces you can buy.
Let me know if you want to purchase any stamps.  Monday, the 29th, is the perfect time to buy!

Christmas Tags

There's a new blog hop for October -- holiday tags.  Click on the Stampin' Hop tab or here to get to it.  If you visit each blog in the hop and leave a comment, your name will be entered to win a stamp. 

The tags I made for the hop are pictured below.

My favorite tags are the poinsettia tags.  I found the directions for making the poinsettia on a Stampin' Up demonstrator's blog at . 

My favorite tag is the poinsettia tag below.  I ran Real Red cardstock through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions embossing folder.  That's how I got the lines on the petals.  After embossing the cardstock, I punched the petals out using the Blossom Petals Builder punch and sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.

It's a rainy day here in the Seattle area today.  After a record-breaking dry spell, the rain is very welcome.  It feels like autumn now.  I plan to make some pumpkin bread and hot spiced cider today.  Maybe Tom will do the clean-up after I bake...

All for this one,

November Stamp Projects

For the November stamp workshops, we'll be making three projects:  a gift card holder, a candy bar slider, and a Christmas card. 

The gift card holder pictured above has an envelope made just the right size to fit a gift card.  I got the instructions from Sharon Cline, another Stampin' Up demonstrator, when she posted a picture and explained how she made the card.

The bow unties and the gift card fits inside the envelope.  Below is a picture of another card made with the same technique.

In the November workshop, we'll also line our envelopes:

The second project we'll do is a candy bar slider card.

When you pull on the candy bar on the top, the card slides out the bottom:

We also will be making a Christmas card to round out the class.  

Thanks for looking!
