Stampin’ Up! Halloween Sneak Peek from the upcoming 2018 Holiday Catalog!

Hello Crafty Friends,

In just 11 days you will be able to purchase items from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog – woohoo!!!  If you have been following me, or know me well, then you know Halloween is my favorite holiday.  So, of course, I had to get pretty much all the Halloween stamp sets; and I have my first creation to share with you today!

This card is chalked full of spooky goodies from the new catalog!  The stamps are from the new Cauldron Bubble Stamp set.  It has all the things you need to make a cute, yet spooky, witch scene.  It also has matching Framelits. The name of the Framelit set is Cauldron Bubble and I used it to cut out the cauldron, the cat, the ghost and the spider web.  The fun ghost paper in the background is the new Toil & Trouble DSP that matches perfectly with this stamp set.  I used the black 1/8 inch cord that is in our current annual catalog to dress things up.  I colored in the cauldron, the cat, and the green slime and flame with Blends markers.  We will even have new Blends to choose from in the Holiday catalog! The background color was made using a dauber with Highland Heather and Smokey Slate ink.

I hope you enjoyed this little taste of the many fabulous items yet to come in just a few days from now.  You won’t want to miss this catalog because it truly has some of the best stamp sets I have seen since being a part of this company.  If you need a catalog, just let me know!

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions and Bonus Days!!

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have a pretty card to share with you as well as exciting news about a deal you don’t want to miss!

This pretty card was made using the Abstract Impressions Stamp set and Springtime Impressions Thinlits. We may have lost our Butterfly Thinlits in the last catalog, but this beautiful butterfly thinlit makes up for it! The pretty flowers are a two step stamp from the stamp set but I could have made it a three step! There are lots of options to make your creation your own with the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  The colors used are Grapefruit Grove and Highland Heather with a touch of Mint Macaron. I also used a little bit of Gorgeous Grape and Soft Sea Form ink to give the flowers an leave dimension. I used basic white pearls and Mint Macaron pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls pack.  I also added two types of Ribbon:  The 5/8 Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon in Whisper White and the 1/8  Grosgrain Ribbon in Grapefruit Grove. The sentiment was cut out using the Petals & More Thinlits.

Now let’s talk about the deal Stampin’ Up! has going on right now!

That’s right, the Bonus Days are back!! This means that for  every $50 dollars you spend before August 31 (before shipping and tax) you earn a $5  Bonus Days coupon code that can be used September 1–30!!  The great news is the new Holiday Catalog starts in September so you could use those bonus days coupons to help you get some of the holiday goodies!
