Christmas snowflakes - six ways

Blogging time has been scarce lately & Christmas is rapidly approaching so  today I'm sharing a bunch of snowflake cards. A bunch? Maybe a group of snowflakes should be called a sparkle of snowflakes 😄.  Almost all are super quick & easy to make & easily mass-produced.

They all feature one of my favourite & cheapest Holiday Catalogue faves - the Winter Wonder embossing folder. It's brilliant for quick, simple & elegant cards, so it's a total bargain for $13 (and you can have it shipped free if you order it today).

Free Shipping, gift giving & sneak peeks

Surprise! You loved free shipping last month so Stampin Up! surprised us with another free shipping treat for today only - 11 December, until midnight.

​Order one item or many - free shipping applies to all orders of any size, so you'll save a minimum saving of $5.95 or 5% of your order. Just get in quick!

This is a great time to stock up on essentials, get some gifts, or send some stamping love to a friend. Remember to check out the Holiday Catalogue retirement list & Clearance Rack while you're shopping.​

Ordering online? Please use this month's host code B9DMTZFN when you order online with me.
Please don't use the host code for orders of $250 or more, as you earn at least $25 worth of Stampin' Rewards on these orders.

JAI386 Just add R - Ribbon of Courage thank you

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is to Just add 'R', so our projects need to include a colour, technique, Stamp set, or any other element beginning with the letter R. This is my card.

My R challenge element is the Ribbon of Courage stamp set & dies bundle. I made this card as a thank you to those who generously contributed to my Alzheimer's Australia fundraiser, in honour of my Mum, who's living with late stage Alzheimer's.

Meet Stamparatus - your new stamping best friend

I'm so excited to introduce you to our new stamp positioning tool - the Stamparatus (Stamp-a-rat-us).
Designed by & exclusively for Stampin' Up!, it's going to be your new stamping best friend.

It's so fast and easy it is to create multi layer images like the butterfly above, using clear mount rubber or photopolymer stamps.  Don't get a complete image first time you stamp? You can re-stamp for a perfect image. Make more cards, quicker, to help you send lots more handmade love and it's truly a stamping game-changer.

Stampin' Blends markers are coming - colour me happy!

Have you heard the exciting news yet? Our new Stampin' Blends™ range of alcohol markers will be available for everyone to order on November 1st - just 10 days away. Yippee! I'm so excited.

Demonstrators were able to order Blends earlier this month (yes we're spoiled), so of course I had to get them all. So pretty! I've been having so much fun playing over the past week to get to know them better & am really loving creating with them. I think you'll love them too.

The Colours

There are 12 Stampin' Up!® exclusive colours in the range so far, each with a light and dark marker. To my eye, the dark marker is usually 'the' SU colour & the light marker is a lighter blendable shade. 
Each colour will be available as a single marker or in a two marker combo pack. Two additional single marker colours will be available (ivory & bronze) plus a clear Color Lifter.
You can also buy the lot together! (Happy Christmas anyone?)

I've made this quick sampler to show all the colours. As well as being good colouring practice, my colour loving self just wants to look at how pretty they are.This was a first attempt so don't look too closely at my blending. Huge thanks to fellow demonstrator Shannon Jaramillo for sharing this fabulous idea.
