Single Stamps

Have you ever decided not to purchase a stamp set because you only wanted one or two stamps from the set? Starting today, you can buy single clear-mount pieces from these select stamp sets (see flyers below). This is a pilot program and will be available through January 2, 2013. How exciting!

  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
  • 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.
  • Remember that this is a pilot program, so take advantage of it while you can!

Three Tier Wedding Cake Card

My downline Toni showed me a huge packet of cards that she pinned on Pinterest and printed out.  Have you used that website?  It is a virtual pinboard that you can use to save photos of things you found on the internet. It is very easy to lose track of time while looking for ideas!  Today's card is one of the ideas that Toni pinned.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to create it. 

The card features a three tier wedding cake.  Each layer is embossed with the Elegant Lines embossing folder, and I used the Corner Punch to quickly round the edges.

Stamps: Word Play
Ink: Soft Suede
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Pear Pizazz
Big Shot: Elegant Lines embossing folder
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals

For those of you who ordered ribbon shares from me, the ribbon is here and I will be repackaging and getting them mailed out to you this week!  If you missed out on this round, email me to sign up for the next one!

*NEW* Ribbon Shares! Sign up today!

Are you in love with the gorgeous new stitched ribbons in the Idea Book & Catalog? If you're like me and wish you could own them in every color, I have a solution for you!  I'm doing two different ribbon shares this month - the 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and the 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Here is how a ribbon share works.  What I do is order a 10 yard spool of each color we carry and then cut them into 2 yard lengths. Then I repackage them so that you receive 2 yards of each color. The ribbon share allows you to sample different colors without having to buy a full spool in every color! You may sign up for multiple shares if you want more yardage.

Email me if you would like me to reserve a spot for you! Payment is not required at this time; I will send you a PayPal invoice once I have enough people signed up.

 ¼” Stitched Grosgrain – $11.74
(add $2 for shipping if not local pick up)
This share includes approximately 2 yards of each NEW 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon in 10 colors: Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi

 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon - $10.61 
(add $2 for shipping if not local pick up)
This share includes approximately 2 yards of each 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in the 5 NEW In colors: Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green

Patterned Party Hinged Card Tutorial

Hello stampers!  Today's little project has a little surprise!  Instead of opening from the side, this hinged card swings up to reveal your message. 

Stamps: Patterned Party
Ink: Perfect Plum
Markers: Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Polka Dot Parade 
Accessories: 3/16" Brads - Brights collection, 1/16" Handheld Circle punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Scallop Edge Border punch

Start with a Crumb Cake standard card base measuring 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  To create the top half, adhere a 5/8" x 4-1/4" strip of Designer Series Paper to Marina Mist card stock (4-1/4" x 3").  Stamp your image on Whisper White card stock and layer onto Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Adhere the image to the Marina Mist piece using Stampin' Dimensionals, extending the image about 1/2" below the bottom of the Marina Mist card stock.

To create the bottom half, punch a border along the top of the Perfect Plum card stock (4-1/4" x 3") using the Scallop Edge border punch.  Stamp "Happy Birthday to You" using Perfect Plum ink.

To create the hinge, place the Marina Mist card stock on top of the Crumb Cake card stock, but do not use adhesive!  Next, place the scallop edge of the Perfect Plum card stock over the bottom of the Marina Mist card stock and align with the bottom of the Crumb Cake card stock.  The Perfect Plum and Marina Mist pieces should overlap by about 1/2".  Add adhesive to the bottom and sides of the Perfect Plum card stock and adhere to the Crumb Cake card stock.  Important Note: Do not put adhesive all the way to the top of the Perfect Plum card stock or else the Marina Mist piece will not swing freely!

Last step - Punch a 1/16" hole through all three layers of card stock and attach a Pumpkin Pie brad through the hole.  And that's it!  You're done!  To reveal the space for your message, slide the Marina Mist piece up and to the left.

Retiring Accessories and Decor Elements - While Supplies Last!

The lists of Retiring Accessories and Decor Elements are here!  Click on the link at the bottom of this post to download the lists.  Please note that everything is available   WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or until May 31, 2012. 

Please note the following about the new catalog (starts June 1):
  • Only select Stampin' Write Markers will be available individually (Stampin' Write Markers in color collections will continue to be offered)
  • 12" x 12" Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered
  • 12" x 12" Smooth Card Stock will only be available in select individual colors and color collections
  • Decor Elements and Simply Adorned Jewelry product lines are being discontinued and will no longer be offered.

When you look at the retired accessories list, you'll note that all of our Stampin' Pads are listed. This is for two reasons: (1) Craft Stampin' Pads will now only be available in black and white; and (2) we are introducing a new Firm Foam pad in our Classic Stampin' Pads with the 2012-2013 annual catalog.

All of the ink colors are staying - except for the 2010-2012 In Colors which were already scheduled to retire this year. The newly redesigned ink pads will be made with the Firm Foam instead of the felt.  This change will make it easier to ink up your stamps with a light tapping, plus the pad is designed to stay juicier longer!  The flip-top case design is not changing.

*NEW PRODUCT* Simply Scored Diagonal Plate

Hi everyone!  I am pleased to announce the all-new Simply Scored Diagonal Plate, perfect for creating envelopes, boxes, and more! It’s the must-have companion to your Simply Scored scoring tool.


The Simply Scored products are just what they imply--simple! This new diagonal plate was designed to make everything that deals with scoring easy. The plate includes the same 1/8" spacing as the Simply Scored scoring tool base, so each groove of the diagonal plate corresponds with the ruler--and all of your projects!

Watch this video from Stampin' Up! to see it in action!

Product Features
  • Sits on top of the Simply Scored scoring tool base (sold separately), so there's no need to worry about finding a place to store it!
  • Held securely in place by rubber pads on back of the plate.  It also has an arrow on the back to help you use it correctly. Just make sure the arrow is pointing to the ruler before you use it.
  • Has etched grooves every 1/8"
  • Can score any size card stock up to 12" x 12"
  • Includes instructions for creating common envelope sizes
