More Single Stamps Added

A few weeks ago it was announced that until January 2, 2013, you have the opportunity to purchase single stamps from the Word Play, Perfectly Penned, and Seasonal Sayings Stamp Sets. Based on the interest Stampin’ Up has seen so far, it appears that both demonstrators and customers love them! And now they are excited to let you know that they have added ten more individual images-including three images that you have never seen before!

Details

  • These stamps are available on any order type-customer, workshop, or online.
  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
  • The single stamps can be ordered in the online store.
  • These won’t be sent to you in our typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags. If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
  • The stamps won’t come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you’ll need to buy a block separately if you don’t already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyers.
  • There’s no limit on how many pieces you can buy.
  • Remember that this is a pilot program, so take advantage of it while you can!

Coloring Glimmer Paper

This cool technique came from Andrea Withers from the Stampin’ Up home office.  I love how this turned out.

Simply take your reinkers and sponge dauber and pounce on your glimmer paper. Be sure to let dry completely before adding to your project.

This one is using the Island Indigo reinker on Silver Glimmer Paper

Try using different colors with the other glimmer papers.

Andrea Wither’s sample

Leave a comment if you have any questions.  Thanks for looking.

Supplies:

Stamp Set:  Greetings of the Season

Paper:  Whisper White and Silver Glimmer Paper

Ink:  Island Indigo Classic Ink and Island Indigo Reinker

Accesories:  Snow Flurry Bigz Die, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, Stampin’ Spritzer mixed with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and Dimensionals

Send us your kit ideas and get ready to vote for your favorites .

The Not-So-Fine Print

  • This program is available to everyone.
  • While your projects should not include retired products, they may include products not created by Stampin’ Up!, such as jars or frames.
    Projects can be cards, scrapbook pages, home décor, holiday décor, birthday decorations, etc. If you can make it with Stampin’ Up! product, you can submit it!

Projects must fit into one of the following categories:

  • Holiday
  • Photo a Day
  • Thank you
  • Birthday
  • Party favor

Submit your projects by e-mail. Send an image (less than 2 MB), supply list, and instructions for creating the project to kitideas@stampinup.com. In the subject line, include the name of your project.

  • Please keep in mind that all submissions become the property of Stampin’ Up! once received. We reserve the right to change project elements, the name or any feature to make the kit easy to reproduce.
  • What’s in it for you? Glad you asked! Those who submit the winning kit will:

  • See it – your photo, name and project will be posted online.
  • Flaunt it – you’ll receive “blog badge” for your personal blog or website.
  • Spend it – you wouldn’t be a winner without a $100 Stampin’ Up! shopping spree.

That’s not all! Those whose submissions are in the top 20 will also receive product used in the winning kit or a $25 shopping spree of their own.

Watch for more information to post here in the near future with details about the first kit available for purchase and the first round of voting!
