My Swaps and a Guessing Game

Weeks before I went to On Stage in Salt Lake City, I was busy making cards to take with me.  After I stamped, punched, and die cut, I spent many evenings putting my cards together as my husband and I watched our favorite TV programs. It was all worth the effort because I received beautiful cards in return!

Demonstrators can swap in several ways:  sign up to swap ahead of time in an organized swap or just swap with demonstrators once you arrive (waiting in line for a General Session to start, in the hallway, etc.).  It’s so much fun! I signed up for two organized swaps.  The balloon card was a regular sized card and the bird card below was for a 3″ x 3″ card swap.

Let’s have some fun with all of the balloons I stamped and punched out!!  Guess how many balloons I have in this Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky and Berry Burst pile!  Make sure you click the link below to join my Stamping with Tracy Facebook Group Page where you can leave your guess – anyone can join! I’ll pick a winner on Wednesday!   https://www.facebook.com/groups/1793763417503951/

Excitement is building for the preorder of Stamparatus, the Stampin’ Up! positioning tool!! The first preorder begins on November 16th.  There are only a limited number available during this first preorder so if you have your heart set on one, be ready at 2:00 Mountain Time on November 16th.

Introducing the Stamparatus!!!

Today is a two post day because I’m just too excited to wait until tomorrow! At On Stage in Salt Lake City a brand new product was demonstrated and this morning all of the details were released and we were given the ok to fill you in on all the details!!! For the past several years, I’ve had the honor of being a part of the group of demonstrators who helped with the development of this new product.

Before I tell you all about this product and how you can purchase one, I want to tell you about my stamping philosophy.  I absolutely love to stamp.  I love creating pretty cards and 3D projects.  Frustration has no part in my stamping.  If I find that I’m not having fun because I’m just getting utterly frustrated, I move on to something else. There are many areas in life where this philosophy is absolutely unacceptable but in stamping, it’s OK! It’s supposed to be fun!!! The brand new STAMPARATUS solves so many frustrating problems and that’s why I’m very excited about this product!!

The Stamparatus is a stamp positioning tool that will change the way you stamp with its very unique features. Check out the video below (my favorite feature: the hinges)!

Now that you’ve seen the video, don’t you love it???

  • You can precisely line up images without worrying about measuring or trying to get them straight.
  • Didn’t get enough ink on your stamp?  No problem. There’s no need to start over, just ink it up again and stamp!
  • Want to make multiples of a card? This tool makes it so easy!

How to Preorder the Stamparatus  $49.00

Stampin’ Up! is trying a brand new PREORDER reservation system for the Stamparatus.  You’ll reserve a spot and as soon as it arrives in the Stampin’ Up! warehouse, it will be shipped to you.

There will be three reservation windows but reservations are while supplies last! If you want to be one of the first ones to get your hands on this wonderful new product, be sure to order as soon as possible starting November 16th! I don’t know how many will be available within each reservation window but if you’re as excited as I am, order it immediately! The reservation window will open on November 16th at 2:00 PM Mountain Time.

Reservation Windows

November 16 – 30, 2017   Will ship approximately February 1, 2018

December 5 – 30, 2017   Will ship approximately March 19, 2018

January 15 -30, 2018   Will ship approximately April 15, 2018

You will be reserving your Stamparatus and your credit card won’t be charged until it’s shipped.  You will need a Stampin’ Up! customer account so if you haven’t ordered before, you’ll need to set that up.  Create an account by clicking HERE!

In the Q & A below, the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers is the graphic above.


Please let me know if you have any questions!!  

It’s a lot of information and I know it might be a bit confusing!

On Stage in Salt Lake City

Happy Monday!

I returned home yesterday afternoon after spending four days in Salt Lake City attending the Stampin’ Up! event, On Stage. I had such a wonderful time and the days just flew by!  I was able to reconnect with old friends and make new ones!  It was so fun to be with thousands of woman (and a few men) who love stamping as much as I do!

We were able to see some sneak peeks of new products coming your way in January and that’s always SO exciting and fun!

Weeks before On Stage, I worked on making cards to swap with other demonstrators.  It was well worth all the time and effort to make them because I received some beautiful cards in return.  I’ll start sharing some of my favorites tomorrow!

The last time I was in Salt Lake City for a Stampin’ Up! event was three years ago when I attended with my good friend, Kristina.  Kristina passed away from ALS two years ago this month and being in SLC without her this time was difficult. The picture below was taken during that trip.  I crossed the stage for my Stampin’ Up! five year anniversary and it was Kristina’s tenth. Kristina was definitely with me in spirit during my trip last week.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Today is the Last Day of My Stampin’ Blends Special

Isn’t this card so stinkin’ adorable???  I received it in the mail from my team leader, Dawn, and I just love it!

Dawn used the Stampin’ Blends to color the sweet reindeer from the stamp set, Seasonal Chums.  It also has matching Framelits (Seasonal Tags Framelits Dies) and if you purchase both the stamp set and the Framelits, you can save 10%.  You can purchase them separately or as a bundle, it’s up to you.  Each of the options are listed in my product list below.

Dawn used our Whisper White Notecards which are smaller than a regular sized card.  There are 20 in a package and the envelopes are included! Love this cute card!

Thanks for That Thing You Did

Happy Thursday!  It’s almost the weekend!

I love the combination of Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Black and if you follow my blog regularly, you also know that I love the Layered Leaves embossing folder. Today’s card was fairly easy to make but between the vellum leaves, the embossed leaves and the beautiful Painted Autumn DSP, it looks like it took a lot longer to make than it actually did!

Having the right tools makes all the difference.  After cutting my Designer Series Paper, I popped it into the Banner Triple Punch and just like that, I had a banner.  The Lemon Lime Twist top layer went through the Big Shot in the Layering Leaves embossing folder and using the Leaf Punch, I made 2 vellum leaf branches.  I love this punch and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will carry over into the Annual Catalog!   I stamped my sentiment onto Very Vanilla cardstock using the stamp set, All Things Thanks and cut it out with the Layering Circles Framelits.  I used these same Framelits for the Basic Black scallop underneath the sentiment.

All of the Measurements

  • Lemon Lime Twist:  11″ x 4-1/4″    score @ 5-1/2″                  3-3/4″ x 5″ for embossed layer
  • Basic Black:  5-1/4″ x 4″    scrap for the scallop circle under the sentiment
  • Designer Series Paper:  2″ x 5″

I hope this easy card has inspired you to pull out some paper and create! All of the products I used are listed below.  To make a purchase, simply click any of the pictures in the product list.  Only until tomorrow, place a minimum $50 order and I’ll send you a FREE Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.  Read all the details below!  I’d love to send a package of these awesome pens to you!

Our Precious Grandson

Several weeks ago I shared that you can cut out a variety of materials with the Big Shot. My daughter and I cut seventy felt hearts in rainbow colors with the Big Shot because she had a very special project in mind for them.

Have you ever heard the term Rainbow Baby?  I hadn’t heard it used until my daughter had a miscarriage several years ago.  It was such a heart wrenching experience for her and I wish I could have done something to ease the pain of her loss. I found this definition of a Rainbow Baby and thought it was a beautiful description.  “Rainbow Baby is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn’t mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy and hope.”

My grandson is my daughter and son-in-laws beautiful Rainbow Baby. He is absolutely precious and has brought such joy into our lives. I can’t imagine life without this very special little boy.

Tool Time Tuesday – Sandwiches

What?? Sandwiches??? Yes, today we are going to talk about the Big Shot and the sandwiches you’ll make when using it.  I’ll never forget the look on the face of one of my Stamp Club members when I mentioned that you’d need to make a sandwich when using the Big Shot. It was several years ago and it still makes me smile. There are many accessories for the Big Shot and for each one you’ll use a different sandwich.  Ready?  Here goes!

If you have an older model Big Shot, you may not know that Stampin’ Up! no longer sells the Big Shot with the Multipurpose Platform.  New products have been developed especially for use with intricate dies and all Big Shots from Stampin’ Up! are now packaged with what is called the Big Shot Platform (as well as 2 Standard Cutting Plates). If you try to use old Multipurpose Platform to cut out intricate dies, you’ll get frustrated very easily, which is why I bought the newer platforms.

The Big Shot Platform includes the Big Shot Platform and the Thin Die Adaptor.  If you’re using an embossing folder, you won’t need the Thin Die Adaptor.  Please note that with all of the sandwiches described below, you’re working your way up.  The first item on my list will go on your work table (piece of bread) and the last item will be on the top (also bread and finishes your sandwich).  The sandwich for Textured Impressions Embossing Folders will be:

  • Big Shot Platform
  • Standard Cutting Pad
  • Embossing Folder with a single sheet inside
  • Standard Cutting Pad

Stampin’ Up! now carries two types of embossing folders, Textured Impressions and 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions.  I described the sandwich above for Textured Impressions folders.  The 3D folders are much thicker and have the ability to create deep, dimensional embossed impressions if you spritz the paper with water before embossing.  I shied away from these folders because I didn’t want to spritz water on it and figured that was the only way to use them.  It isn’t!! I never use water and they turn out gorgeous.  I’m in love with Layered Leaves!!  Because these folders are so thick, you’ll only use one Standard Cutting Pad.

  • Big Shot Platform
  • Single Sheet of Paper in Embossing Folder
  • Standard Cutting Pad

Here’s a card I made recently with Layered Leaves.

When using Framelits and Thinlits that aren’t detailed such as the Layering Circles Framelits, Lots of Labels Framelits, Popcorn Box Thinlits and Everyday Jars Framelits, you’ll use the Thin Die Adaptor.  Your sandwich will be:

  • Big Shot Platform
  • Standard Cutting Pad
  • Thin Die Adapter
  • Single Sheet of Paper
  • Die
  • Standard Cutting Pad

Another option with the dies that aren’t intricate would be to use the Magnetic Platform.  You wouldn’t use this platform for embossing folders, just dies. I have mixed feelings about this platform but I do have and I do use it.  Sometimes the dies tend to jump around on it and you have to find the spot on the platform where this isn’t happening. When I have a small die that I really, really need to stay in place, it works beautifully. Another option is to use washi tape or a tape that removes easily from paper to hold down your dies.  I don’t mind finding the right spot on the platform but some people do.  Here’s the sandwich:

  • Magnetic Platform
  • Standard Cutting Pad
  • Single Sheet of Paper
  • Die
  • Standard Cutting Pad

When you have dies that are super intricate (and so beautiful when cut out), you’ll want to use the Big Shot Platform/Thin Die Adapter AND the Precision Base Plate.  I also recommend using the Big Shot Die Brush and you can read a post I wrote about this plate and the brush here.  With this sandwich, you’ll only use ONE Standard Cutting Pad.

  • Big Shot Platform
  • Thin Die Adapter
  • Precision Base Plate
  • Single Sheet of Paper
  • Standard Cutting Pad

I hope that’s cleared up any confusion over sandwiches and the Big Shot!

If you don’t yet have a Big Shot but you’ve read this far, you’ve probably been dreaming about owning one!  Did you know that if you purchase one from Stampin’ Up! at my online store and add $40 in additional accessories, you’ll hit the $150 sweet spot and receive $15 in free product?  Purchases up to $299 (before shipping/tax), receive 10% of the order in free product, 12% at $300 and it jumps to 14% at $450. Plus, when you order from me, I’m always here to answer any questions you might have!  I use my Big Shot every single day and can’t imagine crafting without it.  If you follow my blog, you’ll always find projects using it!  If you’d like to purchase one today, click here!  If you have questions about the Big Shot or any of the sandwiches, email me and I’d be happy to help!!  If you place your order before November 10th, you’ll qualify to earn a FREE Combo Pack of Stampin’ Blends from me!  Read on for all the details!

Thank Goodness for You Candy Box

Happy Monday! Were you able to join us last Friday for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop?  If not, you can visit my post here and follow along!

Today’s project is a variation of the box I made for the Blog Hop and I used almost all of the same products (see the product list below).  The sentiment on the front of the box was also used to make a sticker for my bag of candy.

The box is a nice size and allows you to really fill up the gusseted bag!   For all the measurements and directions, please visit my post from last Friday. If you have any questions at all, please let me know!

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – Holidays

Welcome to the Glitter Queens Monthly Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is Home for the Holidays and as usual, my focus is on food! I wanted to create a little something that could be at the Thanksgiving table for each guest with something inside that they would really enjoy! I filled mine with M&M’s in fall colors but you could add nuts, gum, mints, or even leftover Halloween candy (we didn’t have many trick or treaters and have SO MUCH candy left over).

I bagged the candy in our Gusseted Bags and sealed them up with a sticker I made!  I used a full sheet shipping label by Avery (8165), stamped my sentiment and punched it out with the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch!

I was going to put a window sheet over the leaf cutout but didn’t really feel it was necessary with the candy securely inside the clear bag.  At the bottom of the post, you’ll find a list of all the supplies you’ll need to create my box!

Measurements

Bottom of Box:  7-1/2″ x 7-1/2″  score @ 2″ on each side

Top of Box:  5-1/2″ 5-1/2″  score @ 1″ on each side

Sentiment on top of the box:  5/8″ x 3-1/4″

In this post HERE, you’ll find general directions for making a box.  Just substitute with the measurements above.  Please pay special attention to the directions for making the bottom of the box.  You’ll need to cut off a smidge on two adjoining sides or the top won’t fit over the bottom

Quick Tips

  • If you need crinkle paper for the inside of your box but don’t have any on hand, you can make your own! Cut very thin strips of Stampin’ Up! card stock.  Then crinkle the paper up in your hands.  Instant crinkle paper!
  • Be sure to cut the leaf out of the top of the box with the Seasonal Layers Framelits, before you assemble your box (hmm, wonder how I know that).
  • Use Fast Fuse or Tear and Tape to assemble your box.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you’ll continue through the hop!  Michelle Veller is next and you can visit her blog here!

Here’s the complete list of hoppers today!

Blends & Birthday Blooms

Happy Thursday!  I hope your week is going well!

My card today uses the stamp set Birthday Blooms and the brand new Stampin’ Blends! It’s important to use our THICK Whisper White card stock and Memento Ink when using the Blends. I colored the flower while watching the World Series and what an exciting series this has been.  Have you been watching it? I’m going to miss baseball when the World Series is over and can’t wait for Spring Training to start up again in March!

I’ve been trying out different colors to see how well they blend together .  The combinations for today’s card happened quite by accident.  I started out with Light & Dark Rich Razzleberry but picked up Dark Cherry Cobbler by accident for my shading. I was upset until I realized that I liked how it looked!

The sentiment is also from Birthday Blooms and stamped in Memento Ink. I finished the card with three Glitter Enamel Dots.  I have to say that I’m loving how Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry look together.  It’s a beautiful combination!

All of the supplies I used to create today’s card are listed below.  To purchase any of the items, click any picture and you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up! online store! See my special offer below!

  • Place a minimum $50 order at my Stampin’ Up! online store between November 1-10 using the host code 3B3Z93NS.  If you aren’t sure how to enter a host code when placing your online order, you can read about the host code here.
  • Once I receive verification of your order, I’ll email you to find out which combo pack of Stampin’ Blends you’d like to receive.  If I don’t hear back from you by midnight on the 10th, I reserve the right to choose a color for you so that I can place all of the orders in a timely manner.
  • On the 10th, I will close the host code and order the pens.  Once I receive the pens, I will send yours out to you! (Due to the Cash & Carry Stampin’ Up! policy, I cannot order these pens ahead of time).

  • In the unforeseen event that the pens go on backorder before November 10th, there will be a delay in shipping your pens to you.

Today’s card was made using the stamp set Birthday Blooms and Stampin’ Blends (Light & Dark Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight).  I didn’t worry about blending and just colored!

It’s important when coloring to place something under your paper to protect your writing surface.  The color does soak through the paper and it’s normal!  I use several pieces of our grid paper underneath my paper.  

If you have any questions about Stampin’ Blends, don’t hesitate to contact me!  If you’d like to place an order (be sure to use the host code 3B3Z93NS so that I can send you a free package of Stampin’ Blends) click here

One More Day to Wait & Special Offer

Stampin’ Blends are arriving tomorrow!!!! I’m so excited that you will finally be able to get your hands on this brand new product starting tomorrow! 

The number one reason I love alcohol- based markers is because you really can’t mess up!  The color blends beautifully onto your paper.  Coloring is so relaxing and you’ll love the results with these pens! Seeing is believing!

For the very best results:

  • Use Memento Ink to stamp your images
  • Use our THICK Whisper White paper
  • Make sure you hear a click when putting the lids on to prevent them from drying out.
