Peach Oh So Eclectic Card

This month I decided to shake things up as a "thank you" for my customers who have ordered from me.  Using an idea from my upline Jessica Taylor, I decided to mail all the components for a card to them and let them assemble them any way they choose.  They could stamp whatever sentiment they liked, or needed, for cards to mail for themselves.  I decided to make mine a birthday card!

Here is the card as I created it:

I hope they all enjoyed making their very own card to use as they please!

Game Changer from Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! is releasing a new tool called the Stamparatus that will be a game changer for stamping!  This is soooo amazing!  And you can reserve your copy tomorrow, November 16 beginning at 2 pm MT!


All the pieces:                                                                      the back with cubbies for the bar magnets:                        



With removable platforms you get 4 platforms to hold stamps, you can easily make multiples of cards as well as make mulitple images on a card front by moving the platforms down a notch.  Suitable for both clear mount and photopolymer stamps, it comes with a foam insert for your photopolymer stamps.  Since it is open-sided on two sides, you can now stamp on any size paper!  Wonderful if you scrapbook!  At a cost of $49, it's a bargain!  You'll be able to line up your stamps, stamp over and over to get a sharp image (without halos or shadows), and save money and time on no longer wasting card stock because of mistakes!  You can now easily use 2-step, 3-step and 4-step stamping with ease!

Wondering about the ordering process?  click here to see how.  You'll reserve your copy with a credit card but not be charged until the item comes in.  When the stamparatus comes into the warehouse, Stampin' Up! will email you that they are in and you can then place it on an order.  Since these won't be available to put on an order until after the first of the year, you can add something else to your order and qualify for a FREE Sale-a-Bration item too!

To reserve your copy, go to my store and click on Stamparatus!  Starts at 2 PM MT (that's 3 PM Central, 4 PM Eastern and 1 PM Pacific)


Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Blends Available NOW

Do you like to color?  Remember coloring with markers and all those streaks?  Now you can color and easily blend out all those marks!  The Stampin' Blends are wonderful and blend so easily!  They come in Stampin' Up! colors and you get a light and a dark marker to blend together.  There are 12 colors plus a bronze and an ivory for creating skin tones.  There is also a color lifter to lighten up areas and to even remove any boo-boos.  The markers come individually, the two color combo set or you can purchase the entire set!  Shop for these markers at


There is also a Color Me Happy kit

and a stamp set (both clear mount and wood mount). 

These also come in a bundle for $39.50


If you are interested in getting this kit or bundle, don't delay.  They are in limited numbers and Stampin' Up! says they are "as supplies last".  There are so many stamp sets in the catalog that can easily be colored too!  And don't forget about the  Just Add Color Designer Series Paper ($13)

  Just a reminder that these are alcohol markers.  You will need to use a dye ink to stamp first so that they don't bleed.  You can use Memento or any other dye ink (most of our stamp pads are dye ink pads).  And because they are alcohol markers, they will bleed to the back so protect your craft space and use your image on top of other cardstock.

Have fun and Happy Stamping!
