Digital Downloads for 2/4/2014

Hi Digi Crafters!

Click here for the newest Stampin’ Up! digital downloads for Tuesday 2/14/2014!

Starburst Sayings Stamp Brush Set - Digital Download

Digital Starburst Sayings #137070 $4.95, above, would be a really great digital stamp to have because of the ease in which you can change the colors of the stamp.  No stamp cleaning necessary!

Look below at how sweet this stamp set is with all of the polka dots colored with bright and “Happy” colors!

You COULD ink up the rubber stamp then use your blender pen to “uncolor” each polka dot and then recolor with a Stampin’ Marker color of your choice.  Or, with the click of a button, you can quickly change the colors of the ink on your digital stamp!

Plus I like how you can even use this with your favorite e-cutter to create a 3d effect on cards and scrapbook pages.

Happy day with bright polka dotsOh Happy Day Ombre Card

If  you prefer to have the traditional set of 6 stamps, you can purchase it in Wood #133182 for $25.95, or Clear #133185, $18.95.  It also comes with a matching set of Starburst Framelit Diess #132967, $26.95.

Below is a cute way to decorate a small gift bag.  It is wonderful that Stampin’ Up! bundled these coordinating products together at a 15% savings!  Simply use the item numbers for Wood Mount w/ Framelits #134817 at $44.95 or Clear Mount w/Framelits #134818 for $38.95.

Stampin’ Up! Tag Topper Punches

Greetings Crafters!

Today is another snow day for the kids in the Wake County, NC area.  Wahoo!:)  This gives me a chance to be at home and show off the two new tag topper punches that are in the 2014 Spring Occasions Catalog:  the Angled Tag Topper Punch (#133323, $22.95) and the  Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (#133324, $22.95).  Click the image below to see the video.

Both of these punches are the new style punches that lock closed and store flat.  They are quite beefy!

Place a piece of 2" wide cardstock all the way inside the punch (until you feel it hit the top) and press down to create a beautiful top for a tag or bookmark.  It even cuts out the hole for  you so you can run a piece of ribbon or baker's twine through it.

The nice thing about these punches is the versatility.  By just varying the length of the cardstock or Designer Series Paper, you can create many different projects such as a gift tag, book mark or treat holder.

1). Gift Tag: Cut a piece that is 5" long and 2" wide.  Stamp, embellish and add to a package or gift bag.

Scalloped Tag Topper TagsTrick of the Trade:  Half way punch out the butterfly (Elegant Butterfly Punch #127526, $15.95) to get the effect that it is flying off of the page (below, left).  Layer with small butterfly from the Bitty Butterfly Punch (#129406, $15.95) and add an embellishment of your choice.  (Glimmer Brad shown)

Half Punched Butterfly2). Book Mark:  Cut a piece that is 6" or 7" long and 2" wide.  Stamp, add ribbon and slip into a book for a friend.

Below I used Geometrical Stamp Set (Wood #133158, $29.95 or Clear #133161, $21.95) with the Triangle Punch (#133375, $15.95) and Essentials Wooden Elements (#132258, $4.95 for 32 pieces).  Using the Fringe Scissors (#133325, $9.95), I added some more texture at the bottom.

Book Marks

3). Treat Holder:  Cut a piece that is 7.25".  Score at 3.25" and 3.75".  Place candy inside.  Tie with ribbon.

Below, I paired Coastal Cabana cardstock and Strawberry Slush ink and ribbon with the Starburst Sayings Stamp Set of 6 (Wood #133182, $25.95 or Clear #133185,$18.95 ) along with Starburst Framelit Dies (#132967, $26.95 for a set of 5).

You can SAVE 15% if you purchase the stamp set and framelits together in the bundle Wood#134817, $44.95 or Clear #134818, $38.95)Tag Topper Treat Holder-side

I hope these ideas give you some ways to use the tag topper punches.  It is the simplicity of these projects that make them so wonderful!

Take Care,

Jennifer

Day 2 at Stampin’ Up! Leadership 2014

Hello from Houston!

Today was another eventful day at Leadership.  I learned so much in all of my classes and make and take session.  Yes, even demonstrators love to put together make and takes!:)

P1080695 I learned that the new Occasions Catalog has a newly designed layout with you in mind.

•Have you noticed that coordinating products have been bundled together at a 15% savings?  Turn to page 18 to see the Calypso Coral box visually jumping out to say “Bundle and Save!”  Peachy Keen and On Film Framelits Dies are bundled together (Wood #135224, Clear #135225) because they are designed to match.  So, it is a smart idea to buy the bundle at its discounted price.

•Have you noticed how nice it is to see product kits side by side with its finished project?  Turn to page 21 where you can see the Springtime Hello Simply Created Garland Kit (#133330).  One pic shows the elements in the kit side by side with the completed project.  The same goes for the Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit (#133333), too. Make sure to check out all 5 kits in the Occasions Catalog to see how everything you need has been thoughtfully included in the kit; well everything except adhesive and scissors!:) Below is a close up of the wreath.  How cute would this be with the flowers changed out for each season?!

P1080751

•Have you noticed how the Designer Series Paper is rolled, allowing you to easily see patterns on both sides of the paper?  Turn to page 23 to see how the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (#132994) leaps off of the page.  Plus I love how Stampin’ Up! shows us one of the hottest trends going in paper crafting, the Polaroid pictures; hence our On Film Framelits!

•Have you noticed how you can easily see the punches and framelits that are designed to coordinate with certain stamps in a set?  Turn to page 25 to see how the Language of Love stamp set (Wood #133074, Clear #133077) has Pool Party border around one of the stamps.  This visually indicates a matching framelit, while the So Saffron borders indicate a coordinating punch.

•Have you noticed that QR codes (the small Calypso Coral code boxes) have been placed next to some of the products and kits?  Turn to page 31 to see one of my favorite kits.  Scan the QR code next to the Happenings Simply Created Card Kit (#133329) to watch a short video about the kit.  (leave a message for me if you need help downloading a QR reader on your smart phone or tablet.)  I will have more to share with you over the coming days, so sign up for the RSS feed so you don’t miss anything!:)

Take Care,

Jennifer
