From sweatshirt to coffee filter...

 

I wanted to show the tye-dye background technique again awhile ago and was looking for a little inspiration.

 

 

So I searched Pinterest for tye-dye.

 

Here's the first thing that caught my eye:

I love these blues!!

And I knew just what I was gonna do with them.

 

Seasonal Chums, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I love this little guy.

 

If you like this technique, maybe I'll do a video down the road. 

But for now, you can search the tye-dye technique.

 

You'll need a coffee filter and baby wipes--and probably the ink refills to the colors you wanna use cuz you kinda dry out your pads. :)

 

 

 

Here are the stamping supplies you need:

 

Blender Pens
$12.00
Big Shot
$110.00

 

 

 

 


Have a wonderful day!

 

 

Btw, have you reserved your Stamparatus yet?

You have through Dec 30.

All these things!

 

This is one of my favorite Christmas cards I've made this year.

 

We made it in my clubs last month--and it has SO MANY of my favorite things on it!!!

 

Winter Wonder folder, Champagne Foil, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I am IN LOVE with Champagne Foil!!

And I've been using the tiny little Merry Christmas from Seasonal Chums a lot. :)

 

 

 

By the way, before I give you the supplies list, ARE YOU INTERESTED IN JOINING A CLUB???

Do you have a friend that would like to join us, too??

 

 

I have a Stampers Club that's been going on for quite awhile that needs re-filling. :)

A few of my peeps can't commit this year.

 

  • We meet every 2nd Tuesday in odd months (January, March, etc) and are restarting in January.
  • You get a turn being hostess (and earning benefits) and are committing to ordering a minimum of $25 each time to guarantee benefits.
  • We meet at my house, and everything gets shipped here, too--unless you place an online order and have it shipped direct.
  • Click here to check out my Stampers Club page.
  • OH--another great perk is an invitation to my Annual Hostess Appreciation Party! It's fabulous!!
  • Let me know soon if you have an interest please!

 

 

Ok, here's all the supplies for my card: 

(click on any item to go right to my online store!)

Big Shot
$110.00

 

 

 

Have an amazing day!!

The moment you've all been waiting for....

 

Pics from the Ornament Exchange!!!

 

Hey--they're only a week late! :/

 

Sorry. I had to focus on my family last week.

My mom was in the hospital most of the week, but is home now and doing much better.

 

 

Before I share pics, just reminding you/confirming that TODAY IS FREE SHIPPING!!

FREESHIPPING_ENG

It doesn't matter the size or kind--online, my club orders today--everything is free shipping.

 

You can also get free Mini Stampin' Dimensionals from me with a $50 online order using hostess code CG9PSYJT.

 

 

 

Ok, no more delays!

We had such a fun time at our Christmas Party!

 

I'M SURE I say that every time. But it's always just SO TRUE!

(And you know this is open to everyone, right???)

 

AND..............I even remembered to take pics WITHOUT being reminded and BEFORE we even had the exchange! It's a miracle!!!!! ;)

Ok, I have one more thing to say.

This exchange (for ME anyway) is a definite example of "if you can fall in love with a project, you can learn to create it!"

 

 

I definitely CASE (Copy And Share Everything) my ornament for this exchange.

 

If you wanna get one of these cute ornaments next year, start pinning some ideas to your boards for next year!

 

(PLUS, I think our overwhelming response to Ruth bringing Cake Pops again this year may convince her to make it part of the annual tradition. She does good work! :D There MAY have been a stampede when she said the extras were up for grabs! Haha! We all shared nicely, though.)

 

 

Have a fabulous day--and week!

A Stamparatus for Everyone!

 

Happy Monday!!

(Sorry this is kinda late! STUFF going on.)

 

 

I have fabulous news!!

After last month's 15 minute reservation window for the Stamparatus, Stampin’ Up! changed how they’re handling the next one...

 

 

The window opens tomorrow, 12/5, at 4pm Eastern time and ends December 30.

 

But THIS time, ANYONE who reserves a Stamparatus during that full window will be on the reservation list.

 

  • 1 reservation per person—regardless of how many reserve.

 

  • Shipments will still happen first come, first serve starting March 19.
  • Also there will be no longer be a 3rd  reservation window.

 

  • The cost is $49.

 

 

 

 

Stamparatus

 

 

 

 

Here's the info video for the Stamparatus again:

 

 

 

 

 

Here's direct verbage from SU!:

As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period we will take as many orders as we receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!
 
Please note the following changes:
 

  • Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
  • Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you and your customers to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

 
Please note what has not changed:

  • If you reserved more than one stamping tool during the first reservation period, that number will not change; you will still receive the same number you reserved.
  • If you reserved one or more stamping tool(s) during the first reservation period, you may still order during the second window.
  • The reservation window will open at 2:00 PM (MT) on December 5. 

We can’t wait for you to get your hands on your very own Stamparatus and look forward to seeing the projects you’ll make with this incredible stamping tool. Look for additional details on the Stamparatus product page as the second reservation window approaches.
 

 

 

If you have ANY questions that aren't answered here--or you need help reserving tomorrow or after--let me know!

 

Otherwise, you'll click ONLINE ORDERING and follow directions to reserve yours.

  • Remember you DO NOT PAY to reserve--but you DO need to provide a debit/credit card.
  • You also DO NOT PAY until you've been notified yours is ready to ship; then you have to give final authorization to process your payment and ship your Stamparatus.

 

 

 

Have a wonderful day!!

Peace on Earth

 

I have another Carols of Christmas card for you today!

 

 

But FIRST, a quick announcement!

 

 

TOMORROW, Stampin' Up! is starting a Year End Sales Event!

 

 

It will feature newly added Retired/surplus items.

 

I'm honestly not sure if it will be part of the Clearance Rack or a separate link on the shopping page.

 

The sale will last all month--actually through 1/2/18.

Be ready to shop! :)

 

 

 

Ok, here's the card we made at my Embossing Paste Techniques Class a couple months ago.

 

Carols of Christmas, Embossing Paste, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

 

We stamped the deer first.

Then we used a mix of Embossing Paste and Dazzling Diamonds and spread it off the edge of a torn mask to get the drifting snow.

 

Love the effect!

 

 

Oh--and I the Black Shimmer Ribbon. 

 

 

 

Here's all you need for this card:

Product List

 

 

 

Have an amazing day!

I can't believe it's the last day in November already!

ALSO, my 16th Annual Hostess Appreciation Party will be Saturday, January 27, 11:30am-3pm.
