Get Well Wishes

The cold and flu season is among us.  What better way to cheer someone up with this humorous 3-D card.  Imagine how cute this would be using flowers or even a frog on the front instead of the monster.  The original post showed the snowman from Button Buddies, so cute.  Let me know if you were the originator to the tissue box measurements so I can give you credit.


To make the tissue box cut paper to 3″ x 6-1/4″

Score at 1-1/2″, 3″, 4-1/2″ and 6″


Stamp Sets:  Make a Monster, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Word Play

Ink:  Marina Mist, Stampin’ Markers Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist

Paper:  Whisper White, Marina Mist

Love You!

Who doesn’t like to just stamp and punch?  This quick and easy card was cased from Leadership.

Love You

More Single Stamp Sets

Ten Never-Before-Seen Images!

You wanted more? You got more! We’ve had a great response so far to our experiment with single stamps. So much so that we are making ten more never-before-seen images available as single stamps available through March 31, 2013.


  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
  • Single stamps can be ordered in the online store.
  • These won’t be sent 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 flyer.
  • There’s no limit on how many pieces you can buy.
  • These stamps are only available through March 31, 2013, so get them while you can!

Best of 25 Years Stamps

SU 25 Year Logo

As part of Stampin’ Up’s 25-year anniversary celebration, they are bringing back some of our favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets; they will release-one set per month-during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each “Best of” set will also include a never-before-seen image!  Click here to see details on January’s Best of stamp set.


Be sure to check back here every month to download a flyer for a new Best of stamp set.

Some things to remember:

  • All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $14.95.
  • While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month), all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
  • A new flyer will be released every month for each new Best of set.
  • All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.

While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month, all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.

As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, starting in February we’re including a collector’s card and 25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014.
