Oh my goodness, this is game changing!  Here is the video:

OKAY. I’VE GOTTA HAVE ONE. HOW DO I GET IN LINE?

The results are in! The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided us with some very important information: You LOVE this new stamping tool! We couldn’t be more thrilled; in fact, your response was so amazing that we’ve decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.
 
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.
 
Sincerely,
 
Stampin’ Up!

Q: What if I do not have a Stampin’ Up! customer account?
A: To reserve a Stamparatus, you must have a customer account. To create one, click Create Account on the online store.
Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship?
A: We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.
Q: Will the available-to-ship dates be the same for all markets?
A: Yes.
Q: Am I billed at the time I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: No. However, a credit card is required to reserve the product.
Q: When will I be charged for the Stamparatus?
A: When inventory arrives in the warehouse, we will add your reservation to a shopping cart. We will then send you an email notifying you that your Stamparatus order is ready. Once you finalize payment and close your order, the system will charge your credit card.

Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?

A: No. However, once your reservation is transferred to your shopping cart, you will then be able to add other items to your order. Important note: Please do not delete the Stamparatus from your order. We will not be able to add it back and you will lose your reservation.

A: Yes.
Q: What if I change my mind and want to cancel my reservation?
A: You can cancel your reservation at any time. To cancel, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers PDF.
Q: Will the tool be available in the 2018–2019 annual catalog?
A: Yes. Once the annual catalog ordering period begins, you will be able to order the Stamparatus as you would any other product. Reservations will no longer be required, and there will be no limit on the number of tools you can order.
Q: Once the Stamparatus has been added to my shopping cart, how long will it stay there?
A: Indefinitely. As with all products, it will be subject to temporary interruptions in availability depending on demand.

Q: When I close my order, can I take advantage of current Stampin’ Up! promotions?

A: Yes.
Q: Can I participate in all three reservation periods?
A: Yes.
Q: How many stamp placement tools can I reserve per reservation window? A: For customers, there is a limit of 1 per reservation window.
Q: How did we come up with the name Stamparatus?
A: We landed on an innovative name by combining two words that speak to the end use of the tool as well as Stampin’ Up! branding. Stamp: To impress a pattern or mark (especially an official one) on a surface, object, or document using an engraved or inked block or die or other instrument Apparatus: The technical equipment or machinery needed for a particular activity or purpose Stamp + Apparatus = Stamparatus

Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card

Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card

This Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card was from one of our weekly color challenges.  It was quite a mix of colors and the gold just called out for heat embossing!  The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set was a great way to get my colors in! 

Simply start with a Very vanilla thick cardstock cut for an A2 card, finished size 5.5″ x 4.25″.  The Old Olive layer is cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.  and the inside very vanilla layer is cut at 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.  Emboss the top of the card using the Hexagon emboss folder.  The inner Old Olive layer is 3.5″ square.  And the inner heat embossed Vanilla layer is 3 3/8″ square.

See the video tutorial below for details on heat embossing, and remember to make your envelope pretty!

And here is a video tutorial:

Happy Birthday Framelit Dazzling Diamonds card

Clean and Simple…  That describes this fun Happy Birthday Framelit Dazzling Diamonds card!  It was a hit at a recent stamp event, and actually super easy to create!

Simply start with a potrait A2 card base in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. Cut the base at 4.25″ x 11″, then score and fold at 5.5″.  The basic black layer is cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ and the whisper white layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  Stamp the background in Momento ink and attach the ribbon.

Cut a happy birthday in white and in Lemon Lime Twist, glue together a little offset.  Cut dimenionals in very thin strips and use these to pop up the Die.  Totally assemble the card then put a very fine strip of Tombo liquid glue along the Happy Birthday.  Sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds!

Remember to make the envelope pretty!

Bright Wishes birthday card with Colored pencils

Making this Bright Wishes birthday card with Colored pencils gave me a chance to play!  I love to color and since coloring has become so popular Stampin’Up! has released so many fun stamp sets perfect for the artist in all of us!

To make this card simply start with Daffodil Delight cardstock cut at 4.25″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  The whisper white cardstock layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  Stamp the wishing well image toward the top and color using the watercolor pencils.  For this card I didn’t use the blender pens or aqua painters, I just did the shading with the pencils alone.

Finally I used a Stampin’ sponge to blend Old Olive into the grass area. Finish off with the ribbon and the oval framelits.
