Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season

Today’s card features the Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set and the Seasonal Swirls Dies. Both of these products are retiring and available while supplies last and the Seasonal Swirls Dies are 40% off (now $20.40, normally $34.00)! Usually our bundles are the best buy but with these dies discounted so heavily, you’ll save more buying the stamp set and dies separately. 

 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and then added a layer of Whisper White cardstock and Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper.  Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper is currently not available but it is estimated to be back in stock on December 10th.  I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the card front. 

 

 

 

I used one die in the Seasonal Swirls Dies to cut two wreaths, one using Basic White cardstock and the other using Evening Evergreen cardstock.  Then I used another die to cut a wreath using our Silver Foil.  I used tiny drops of Multipurpose Glue to adhere each wreath to the embossed cardstock.  I cut the cardstock for the sentiment and then used the Banners Pick a Punch punch to notch each end.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink using Sparkle for the Season Stamp Set. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it across the wreaths. 

My first impulse was to use the very lightest silver foil in the Silver Foil Specialty Pack but 1. I don’t have anymore and 2. I haven’t used the other two pieces  of foil in the pack and was determined to use the darker foil.  I think it worked! 

 

 

To complete the card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside and added three rhinestones to the front. With the foil and the rhinestones, this card has a lot of sparkle! You can find the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Last Chance Products

 

Most of the products in the Mini Catalog are retiring and once they’re gone, they’re gone! Not all products are on sale but some are discounted up to 50%. Be sure to get your favorites before they’re gone! 

These items are currently on the Low Inventory List so if you’ve had your eye on any of them, get them quickly before they’re gone! 

The Polar Bear Dies which coordinate with the Arctic Bears stamp set (on the low inventory list) are discounted 50%.  They are normally $30.00 and are now $15.00. The Arctic Bears Bundle is also on the Low Inventory List but the better buy is purchasing the Arctic Bears stamp set and Polar Bears Dies separately because of the huge discount on the dies.

New Card Sampler and Last Chance Promotion

The Last Chance Promotion begins tomorrow so I’m releasing my newest Card Sampler a day early so that you’ll have the information about it before the promotion begins.. You can read more about the promotion farther down in the post. The Last Chance List that I posted the other day was a little hard to understand so I’ve tried to break down some of the information. 

 

 

My Happiest of Birthdays Card Sampler is now available!

My Card Samplers give you the chance to “sample” different products and you’re able to see our Designer Series Paper, cardstock, embossed paper, die cut pieces and embellishments “in person” as you assemble the cards.

Here’s how you can earn it FREE!

  • Place a minimum $50 order (before tax/shipping) at my Stampin’ Up! online store.
  • Use my special Happiest of Birthdays Card Sampler Host Code when placing your order: AGPQC9EE
  • Place your order on or before December 7, 2021.
  • If your order reaches $150 or more, please DO NOT use the host code so you can receive Stampin’ Rewards (free product directly from Stampin’ Up!).  Once you place your order, simply drop me an email (only necessary if your order is over $150) letting me know that you’d like the Happiest of Birthdays Card Sampler.  If I don’t hear from you, I’ll assume you’d prefer to receive my regular card kits.

 

 

 

Here’s What You’ll Receive:

  • All the paper and embellishments needed to make six cards (two each of three different designs). The paper will be cut, scored, embossed and die cut for you! You’ll need to supply your own adhesive, ink and stamp set (per Stampin’ Up! I cannot send stamped images). Envelopes will also be provided.
  • A PDF Tutorial with instructions, pictures, cutting measurements and a complete supply list of all the products used.
  • Earn at least one Bradley Point (earn ten Bradley Points and redeem them for free product).

 

All the Other Important Information:

  • Your Happiest of Birthdays Card Sampler will ship first-class mail on Thursday, December 16, 2021 and will be mailed to the address used on your online order.
  • You’ll receive an email when I mail your Card Sampler. The PDF Tutorial will be included in that email.
  • When using the Happiest of Birthdays Sampler Host Code to place your order, you will not qualify for my regular Customer Rewards Card Kits.
  • Per Stampin’ Up! policy, kits can only be mailed within the United States.

 

The special Happiest of Birthdays  Card Sampler  HOST CODE will close on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 and after that date, the Card Sampler will no longer be available.

Expected ship date of the Card Sampler is December 16, 2021.

Supplies Needed To Create the Card Sampler

Listed below are the supplies you’ll need to complete the cards exactly as shown (or you can use what you already own). Simply click any of the products and you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up! online store. When placing your order, don’t forget to use the special Happiest of Birthdays Card Sampler Host Code (please do not use host code if your order is over $150 – see above).

One card was made with Ever Eden 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper.  You’ll receive all the paper you’ll need to complete all six cards but if you wish to purchase more of this paper, it’s only available while supplies last!

Last Chance for $75 Starter Kit

 

Today’s the last day to take advantage of the $75 Starter Kit and tomorrow it will go back up to $99. When you purchase the Starter Kit, you can choose $125 worth of Stampin’ Up! product – that’s $50 in free product and you won’t have to pay to shipping costs because the Starter Kit always ships FREE. 

Once you complete the sign up form and submit it, Stampin’ Up! will send you an email with your demonstrator id number and then you’ll be able to place your own orders with a 20% discount! You can be a happy shopper or you can start your own business, it’s completely up to you. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a minimum amount of product I have to order? Yes. Each quarter you have to place (or sell) a minimum of $300.  Your first $300 minimum won’t be due until the end of March 2022! 

Do I have to sell to others? No. There’s no requirement to sell to anyone.  There’s nothing wrong with getting the Starter Kit just so you can get the discount. 

What happens if I can’t make the minimum $300? You will simply be dropped.  No questions asked. But, you’ll still be able to keep all the products you purchased in your Starter Kit.

If you have other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. 

 

 

 

Last Chance Products

Before sharing information about the Last Chance Products, I want to remind you about Stampin’ Up!’s new policy concerning backorders. Because of the global concern over receiving products in a timely manner, Stampin’ Up! will no longer place items in backorder status, they will simply be unorderable.

Some of the products from the Holiday Catalog will be returning but only one bundle will still be available after January 3, 2022 (Nature’s Harvest Bundle). If there’s a bundle you’d like from the Holiday Catalog, I recommend purchasing it as soon as you can because if the supply is depleted before January 3rd, the bundle price will be gone (except for the Nature’s Harvest Bundle). More information can be found below. 

 

Starting tomorrow, December 1st, the last chance promotion begins. The products included in the promotion are from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog.  Some of the products in the catalog will still be available after January 3rd but many are retiring. Some will even be discounted up to 50%. All retiring products will be available while supplies last. Once the sale begins tomorrow, Stampin’ Up! will have a promotion page and you’ll be able to see everything retiring and those products that will be discounted.  Until then, you can download this flyer from Stampin’ Up! to see what’s retiring and what will be on sale. You can also download the Carryover List HERE but I’ve tried to explain some of the information below.

Some of the returning (carryover) products will be available until January 3rd, but then won’t be available again until July 2022 when the new Holiday catalog comes out.  If any of these products are in a bundle NOW, they won’t be when they return in July. Here’s a list of those products (see the bundles below): 


These bundles will NOT be available after January 3, 2022 but the individual products will still be available but not until July 2022 (save 10% with bundles).

Penguin Place Bundle:  Penguin Place stamp set & Penguin Builder Punch

Merriest Moments Bundle:  Merriest Moments stamp set & Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder

 

Returning (Carryover) Products

These products will also be returning and you WILL be able to order them online but they won’t be featured in a catalog for a while. Some of these products can be purchased NOW in a bundle but they won’t be in a bundle after January 3rd. I’ve listed the bundles below this list of products.

These bundles won’t be available after January 3rd but the individual products will be. 

Christmas Season Bundle:  includes Christmas Season Stamp set and Seasonal Labels Dies 

Christmas to Remember Bundle:  includes Christmas to Remember stamp set & Christmas Pinecones Dies

Peaceful Deer Bundle:  Peaceful Deer stamp set & Deer Builder Punch

The only returning bundle will be the Nature’s Harvest Bundle (it WILL be available after January 3, 2022 with the bundle price). 

This is a lot of information and writing it has made my head spin but if you have ANY questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can find an Email Me button on the sidebar.
