Bonus Days are Back!

Last year’s Bonus Days promotion was such a huge hit, that Stampin’ Up! is bringing it back again this year!  For every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping) in August, you will earn a $5 coupon that can be redeemed on an order in September!  There are no limits to how many coupons you can earn, and no limit to how many orders you can earn them on!

Promotion Details:

  • Earning Period: August 1st-31st, 2018
  • An email address is required to participate; Bonus Days coupon codes can be delivered only via email.
  • If you earn multiple codes from a single order, you will receive one email with multiple codes. If you earn multiple codes from multiple orders, you will receive separate emails for each code earned.
  • There is no limit to the number of coupon codes you can earn per order or throughout the duration of the Bonus Days earning period!
  • There is no limit to the number of coupon codes you can use on an order during redemption in September!
  • Bonus Days coupon codes may be redeemed for any product, excluding Starter Kits and month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscriptions.  However, prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscriptions may be discounted with Bonus Days coupons.
  • Bonus Days coupon codes may be redeemed one time only each.
  • Redemption Period:  September 1st-30th.
  • All Bonus Days codes MUST be redeemed by September 30th.  They will not be valid past that date!

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Are coupon codes case sensitive?
A: No, but the codes will include a dash. You need to include the dash in the code for them to work.

Q: Can participants earn multiple codes on a single order?
A: Yes. There is no limit to the number of codes that can be earned on a single order. They just have to reach the qualifying amounts to do so.

Q: If a participant earns multiple codes on a single order, will they get one email or multiple emails with coupon codes?
A: If they earn multiple codes on a single order, they will get one email with multiple codes. If they earn three separate codes on three separate orders, they will receive three separate emails.

Q: Can coupon codes be used after September 30, 2018?
A: No. All codes will expire after September 30, 2018.

Q: If an order is cancelled, will the codes be lost?
A: Yes. If you cancel an order during the earning or the redemption period that has codes on it, your codes will be lost and you will not be able to use them again.

Q: Can coupon codes be given away?
A: Yes. The codes are not specifically tied to a demonstrator or a customer. They can be shared, but they can still only be redeemed once. However, they have to be redeemed in the same country where they are earned. For example, if they are earned in Canada, they have to be redeemed in Canada.

Q: Will participants be allowed to apply coupons valued at more than the amount of product they’ve ordered?
A: Yes, but they will forfeit the overage of the coupons being applied.

Q: What if a participant doesn’t have an email address?
A: An email address is required to generate a code, so anyone who wants to participate in the promotion must provide one. A friend or demonstrator could offer to provide their own email address so that they receive the coupon code(s) on behalf of the customer, and then give the code to their customers.

Q: Will Stampin’ Rewards overages or 50% off items count toward the qualifying sales amount?
A: No. Stampin’ Rewards overage and 50% off items will not count toward the qualifying amount.

Q: What if participants earn coupon codes but don’t receive an email?
A: With so many different email providers, it’s possible that the email may have been sent to a spam folder. Check there first and if the email still can’t be found, contact your demonstrator for help.

 

This promotion is a fantastic way to earn coupons to use on orders from the Holiday Catalog!  Place an order from your Annual Catalog wish list in August and earn coupons to save on Holiday Catalog items in September!  It’s a win-win!  🙂

The Blended Seasons Bundle is Available Starting TOMORROW!

Tomorrow, August 1st, the new, gorgeous Blended Seasons Bundle will be available for purchase!  The bundle contains both the Blended Seasons stamp set, as well as the coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies!   Here’s a peek at the full bundle:

This bundle is perfect for year round crafting!  It contains images and sentiments that can be used for spring and summer flowers, plus autumn leaves, and holly, berries, and bells for the holidays!  Both items are also available separately as well, so if you want just the stamps, or just the dies, you can get just one or the other.  BUT, you will save 10% if you buy both as the bundle!  🙂

The card I made for today’s post uses the leaves stamp from the bundle.  I stamped the leaves in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in Copper Embossing Powder.  I then used my Aqua Painter to add color.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Old Olive as the colors.  I framed the leaves with an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits, and set it against one of the stitched frames from the Stitched Seasons Framelits.

I used a design from the Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper as the background, and embellished the card with linen thread and some pearls colored with the Ivory Stampin’ Blends marker.  SInce I used Very Vanilla on this card, I wanted the pearls to match.  Coloring them with the Ivory marker was the perfect solution!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Thick Very Vanilla card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Wood Textures DSP layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

Early Espresso stitched backing layer:  2-3/4 x 4 inches

Very Vanilla oval:  2-5/8 x 3-9/16 inches

 

The Blended Seasons Bundle is available beginning August 1st, and is only available until August 31st or while supplies last!  So if you love it, be sure to order early in order to avoid disappointment if it sells out!  You can shop for these exclusive, limited time products HERE.

Today is also the LAST DAY to get the Wood Textures DSP as part of the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper sale!  AND, it’s also the last day to sign up for Stampin’ Up! and get 10 free ink pads in addition to $125 in product of your choice for only $99!

Right now, a few hundred of the top achieving Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are on a cruise in Alaska!  And from what I can tell, they are all having a fabulous time!  On this trip, the 2018 Holiday Catalog was unveiled, and from what I’ve heard and seen so far, it’s going to be fantastic!  Here is a picture of the front cover, which was taken by one of my uplines, Stella MacKay.  She has been updating us with pictures of products and project samples throughout her trip.  I truly cannot wait to see the whole thing!  I will be ordering the new catalogs August 1st and will be sending them to my customers in mid-August.  The ordering period for customers begins September 1st.  Anyone who has ordered from me within one year of when the catalog is sent is guaranteed a complimentary copy!

New Stampin’ Blends Colors and NEW Bundle Available August 1st!

Last week I received an order with all of the new Stampin’ Blends colors!  They are finally back in stock, and the new colors are gorgeous!  For this card, I used Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green (both light and dark shades of both), as well as Daffodil Delight for the centers of the flowers.  The large floral stamp is from a brand new stamp set called Blended Seasons, which will be available for a limited time beginning August 1st!  (More about that soon!)  I paired the colored floral image with the new color Mango Melody, because I just love the combo of these three colors together!

Another new product I used on this card is the Big Shot Embossing Mats.  These new mats allow you to use cutting dies to emboss, rather than cut.  So the floral images along the right side of the card were actually made with a cutting die!  These new mats provide so many more options for decorating and adding detail to projects!  Here’s a close up of the detail on the embossed edge:

The die I used for the embossing is from a new set called the Stitched Seasons Framelits.  These new dies are part of the same limited time offer as the Blended Seasons stamp set.  The stamps and dies will be available separately, as well as in a bundle (save 10%), again, beginning August 1st!

Other products used on this card include the Touches of Texture stamp set, Stitched All Around stamp set, and Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  I also added just a touch of Clear Wink of Stella to the insides of the flowers for a bit of shine!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows: 

Mango Melody card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Poppy Parade card stock strip:  2-5/8 x 5-1/2 inches

Whisper White card stock strip:  2-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches

Floral stamp image:  2-3/4 x 4 inches (fussy cut)

Sentiment die cut:  5/8 x 2-7/8 inches

 

I am a huge fan of the new Brights colors, and I love the way these three look together!  Please stay tuned for more information regarding the new stamps and dies, as I will be posting everything you need to know about it sometime in the next few days!

Thanks for checking in today!  Enjoy your day!
