Holiday Catalog Inventory Update

So I have some good news, and I have some not so good news…the good news is that this year’s Holiday Catalog has been wildly popular! The bad news is that certain items have been SO wildly popular that they are in danger of selling out before the end of the Holiday Catalog ordering period.
Most of these items are not carrying over into a later catalog, so at this point, once they are gone, they are gone for good.   While these items are still available as of the writing of this post, that could change at any time.  If you have your heart set on any of the products shown below, please order ASAP to avoid disappointment!

In addition to the above items being close to selling out, there are a handful of items that have already officially SOLD OUT. These products are no longer available, and unfortunately, Stampin’ Up! will NOT be getting more in before the end of the Holiday Catalog ordering period. They are:

While it is disappointing that these products are no longer available, there are many others that still ARE, and would be wonderful for you to use in your Holiday crafting!  If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know!

Thank you for visiting today!

Blended Seasons Congrats Card

My card today was created by my very talented and generous upline, Sarah Wills!  I got this card yesterday, along with some other goodies from her, and it completely made my day!  Sarah makes the most gorgeous cards, and I always love the colors she puts together!  For this card, she used the Blended Seasons stamp set, which is part of the Color Your Season Promotion.  This set, along with coordinating cutting dies, are only available until August 31st or while supplies last.  Here is a peek at the stamp set:

This set is so perfect for year round crafting!  It’s got flowers and leaves for Spring and Summer, leaves and wheat for Autumn, and holly and bells for Christmas/Winter.  For this card, Sarah paired the large floral stamp with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I just love how the flowers look against the grain of the wood!

The main color Sarah used on this card is Calypso Coral.  The image was colored using Stampin’ Blends.  I am assuming that the yellow in the center of the flowers is Daffodil Delight and that the leaves are either Old Olive or Granny Apple Green.  (If I get a definite answer on the green, I will let you know!)  She also added just a pop of black by adding a small piece of black cardstock cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, as well as the stamping the sentiment in black.  I love the contrast of the black against the lighter colors!

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Calypso Coral card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 5-1/2 inches and folded in half)

Very Vanilla middle layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

Wood Textures DSP top layer:  3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

Very Vanilla banner piece:  3/8 x 2 inches

Black punched piece:  1/2 x 1-5/8 inches (approximate)


I just love getting happy mail, and it’s always a happy day when I get mail from Sarah!  I just love this card she created, and may have to make more of these for myself!  Again, if you love this stamp set and bundle, there are only a few days left to get it.  Click HERE to visit the Color Your Season section of the online store to get your set before they’re gone for good!

Have a great weekend!  Thanks for visiting today!


Mid- August Reminders

So we are just about 2/3 of the way through August (already)!  This past weekend was filled with family events, so I didn’t get to make even one card!  That means I had to skip Merry Monday for this week, and I unfortunately don’t have anything new to share with you today.  🙁  So I thought I would use today to just discuss a couple of reminders for August!

First, the Blended Seasons Bundle is still available, but only until August 30th!  This gorgeous bundle is perfect for year round crafting, and includes both an exclusive stamp set as well as framelits.  We have been told that these items will NOT be available in any future catalog, so if you really want them, now is the time to get them!  Here’s a peek at the full bundle once more:

Both the stamp set and framelits are also available separately.  So if you just want one or the other, you can get them.  However, purchasing the bundle will save you 10% off the cost of them individually, and they really are best when used together!  There are so many beautiful projects you can create with these!

Here are a few samples made with the bundle:

Please click HERE to go to the Blended Seasons section of the online store to get yours before they are gone for good!

Second, BONUS DAYS are still in effect until August 30th as well!   For every $50 you spend in August (before tax and shipping), you will receive a $5 coupon code to be used on an order in September.  There is no limit to how many coupons you can earn, and no limit to how many orders you can earn them on!  This is a great time to stock up on essentials such as cardstock, envelopes, adhesives, etc.!  It’s all stuff you need anyway, and you’ll get some coupons to put toward new Holiday Catalog items!  Just something to think about!

You can shop both of these offers by clicking the image below.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

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!
