We Create Bloggers December Hop!

Hi Friends!

Happy December! This is a fun month, with lots of traditions, crafts, get togethers, celebrations and for me and my family- the celebration of my siblings birthdays and Christmas! I wanted to share a recent card design I came up with for my last Stamp a Stack class. I was excited to use the new Hearts Come Home bundle, it is just stunning and so many possibilities! For this monthly blog hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators and we create one simple project then show you a few enhancements (sometimes added embellishments) to “Step it up”. Hope you like what we’ve created for you today!

This is my “simple” version using just the die cut for the church on our whisper white card stock. I used basic grey as a base, cut out an opening with the largest oval die in the Layering Ovals set, and then texturized it with the Softly Falling TIEF. What do you think?

My “stepped-up” version is a little more challenging… you need to run the glimmer paper through the big shot a few extra times since it is thicker than our regular card stock. I stamped the greeting in Night of Navy ink, used a q-tip to rub off the ink from the word “home” and then used our Real Red Stampin’ Marker to color red ink on just this word. Then I punched it out with our Pretty Label punch and adhered some lovely Night of Navy gingham ribbon behind it. What do you think??

 

Here is the ordering information for this bundle: item #146068 Hearts Come Home Clear mount bundle, you save 10% when you purchase the stamp set and dies at the same time. There are 16 rubber stamps and 6 dies in this set, you will get a lot of use out of it for sure!

Here are some projects by the Stampin’ Up! Concept Artists:

Holiday Gift Ideas with the Creative Inking Bloggers!

Hello there friends! Thank you for joining us on another blog hop with these amazing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators! This month, we have 10 fabulous participants, to “hop” along and see all their work, just click the icons at the bottom with the cute bunny- and “click” the “next” button to hop forward… it will take you to each one. I am so excited about the theme this month- Holiday Gift Ideas, and I just couldn’t wait to share some ideas with you! (And how perfect that today launches our Online Extravaganza– a special week long sale, with some awesome stamp sets available today only… scroll to bottom for a complete list!)

First, I wanted to show you this adorable hot cocoa gift– perfect use for those test tubes!

How sweet is this? I just love how this finished product came out- who would you give this to?? I’m thinking this would make a great teacher, bus driver, coach, co-worker, neighbor, mail carrier, and friend gift.

In case you wonder where to find this super cute mini mini marshmallow bits- they are in the hot cocoa isle (not where other marshmallows were at my local store). The little mini silver spoons are from the Dollar General store- just a great finish to this “gift”. (sorry about the mess in the background- I totally meant to crop that out!)

This is one of the projects we made tonight at my Stamping Bingo event, I was thrilled to have such a great response to this “Ugly Christmas Sweater” themed event. Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see all my bingo pictures!

 

This is a sweet little gift I featured at my last Girl Scout Troop meeting. The girls voted and wanted to learn about Book Making. (there is a badge for that! lol). They love time in the craft room and I taught them the hot glue gun binding technique. They each made a different cover, the inside pages are thick sketch book/artists paper so they can color and their work won’t seep through). I explained that these are inexpensive gifts they could make for their family members for gifts next month. (I did use some retired DSP and ribbon above).

 

 

 

Here is the complete flyer with all the items included in our Online Extravaganza Sale! Don’t forget that there are items on sale today only- those specials end at Midnight!

You can either click this image (note- this version has all the French stamp sets on the list).

Or click here and open the list I created- and note I removed all the French items.

Stampin Friends Happy Holidays Hop!

Hi there Stampin Friends!

I hope that this blog post finds you all doing well! This is certainly the season where things seem to get more hectic, there’s more illness, and if you’re like me, you just want to simplify and celebrate a meaningful holiday with your loved ones.

I hope this post gives you some ideas. I’m here for you! If you would like to give a meaningful gift this Christmas, I would be honored if you would consider me, and perhaps a Stampin’ Up!  gift certificate or products to make any crafter happy!

I recently hosted a small get together for my sister, her coworkers, and their daughters. Their request was to make some Christmas totes and special packaging for gift giving. In addition to the three projects here, I also let the girls have a little freedom to create cards (they loved that).

This little tote is super easy to make, I don’t know who to credit with the original idea, I’ve modified the pattern through the years to make cutting/prep easy.

I started with a 4″ x 12″ strip of Designer Series Paper, then used coordinating color cardstock, the two handles are 1/2″ x 11″ and the base is 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ scored  at 1/2″ on all four sides (clip corners). (You can also cover the outer top and bottom edges with 1/2″ x 12″ strips of matching card stock for a finished look.

The second project is this glitzy gift bag, everyone loved using the heat embossing tool! I don’t think the photos do this justice, it is just so sparkly! This gift bag would be perfect for giving some jewelry, gift cards, small items that will fit inside (inside measurement is 4 3/4″x 7″) – and the inside is a food safe interior if you want to put your handmade treats inside!

The third project we made is this adorable Christmas Quilt themed pizza box. The felt embellishments are just the shining star here. Pizza boxes are so versatile and are food safe also, and can fit a gift card holder or small gift as well. (inside measurements are 3″x3″).

And since we always share a card as well as our 3-D creations, here is a sweet and simple coordinating card.

We have a give-away! Just comment on each blog with the hashtag #SFbloghop2017 and leave a comment (tell me what you love about my projects).

Ready to go hop along to the other awesome crafters?

Big News!!

I have been part of the L2L team that gave input on this exciting new product!!! The team was on strict confidentiality aka “gag orders” to not disclose anything about this product. It really pained me to be part of conversations about other stamp positioning tools and not be able to talk about the one from Stampin’ Up! But I’m allowed to share now! Finally!!!!

It’s big news when something breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

• Make multiples with ease

• Consistently stamp crisp, clean images

• If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over

• Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money

• Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates

• Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

Product Details:

• Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp

• Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps

• Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring

• 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper

• 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with

• 2 magnets to hold the paper in place

• Magnet storage areas

• Retail Price–$49.00!!

So How Do You Get One??

With the launch of this tool, Stampin’ Up! is trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and they guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in their warehouse. This system will allow Stampin’ Up! to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

• Reservation quantities are while supplies last.

• Limit is 1 tool per customer per reservation window.

• You may participate in multiple reservation windows.

• In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.

• Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.

The Stamparatus will be in the 2018-2019 catalog as a permanent product, but Stampin’ Up! wants to make it available before that. They anticipate that this will be a popular product in all markets, and since suppliers can only produce a certain number of tools per week, there will be special “reservation windows” in order to manage order quantities. Each reservation window will close when the maximum number of orders is reached, which is why each period is “while supplies last.” The reservation windows actually last a couple of weeks, but I didn’t even bother including the ending date. I will be shocked if they don’t run out within hours. When the next reservation window arrives the cycle will repeat until the tool becomes permanently available.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows.

November 16th at 2:00 pm MST, delivery on or around February 1.

December 5th at 2:00 pm MST, delivery on or around March 19.

January 15th at 2:00 pm MST, delivery on or around April 15.

If you want to go to my online store- http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/lynnstreifert/ and use hostess code Y9NNTSFJ (it will link your order to me and will ship to you directly).

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks,
