New Catalog Launch

New Catalog Launch

It’s almost time, for the new Catalog Launch! I don’t know about you, but I’m counting the hours. June 3rd, can’t come fast enough. The 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog is filled with 192 pages of crafting goodness. We’ve got new stamps, inks, dies, punches and so much more.

I’ve got some favorites, how about you? On the top of my list was the Forever Greenery Suite. Stampin’ Up! knocked it out of the park with this DistINKtive set and coordinating products. I’ll bet the inventory will go super fast on this one. When placing an order with me, catalog launch will be that much sweeter. Check out my ordering special.

That’s right, someone will win a Stamparatus Craft and Carry Bag ($29 value) from me. Earn your ticket in the drawing by placing a minimum $50 order (before tax and shipping). You must use my Host Code, 4U6T7X9R, if you order is less than $150. If your order is over that amount, be sure to scoop up those host benefits for yourself. Don’t worry, you’ll automatically earn an entry in the drawing. But wait there’s more good news.

Share What You Love Thank You

Share What You Love Thank You

It’s early release time and the Share What You Love Bundles are here.  This early release makes it super easy for you to snatch up some new product and earn free items from both Stampin’ UP! and me.  The Share What you Love Specialty DSP is one of my favorites and can be found in the Gotta Have It All Bundle.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Share What You Love, Stampin' Up!

I’ve used a variety of the new papers in this quick and easy thank you card.  Along with the papers, I also incorporated one of the Pearlized Doilies and a laser-cut die cut from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.  The kit is one of the FREE items you will earn with this bundle.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Share What You Love, Stampin' Up!

I love the new in-colors and used one, Grapefruit Grove, as my card base.  One of my favorite colors, Rich Razzleberry is a perfect color combo with the Grapefruit Grove. I used that yummy color for my mats to really make the gorgeous Share What You Love DSP shine.  One sheet of the paper is more beautiful than the next.  

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Share What You Love, Stampin' Up!

In the Gotta Have It All Bundle you all receive the Grapefruit Grove ink pad and that’s what I used to stamp the color wash background on the inside of this card.  The Love What You Do stamp set, a 13-piece photopolymer set, contains a number of beautiful floral images, the color wash and four fabulous sentiments. 

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Share What You Love, Stampin' Up!

You’ll want to create multiples of this card.  It’s great to have a stack of thank you cards all ready to go.  Remember make a card, send a card, it’s good for the creative soul.  

In this how-to video, I’ll teach you how to create the card and I’m also offering a few giveaways.  Be sure to watch to the end to get all the info.

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Card Base – Grapefruit Gove CS – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Mats – Rich Razzleberry CS – one @ 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″, one @ 1 3/8″ x 5 1/4″ and one @ 4″ x 1 3/4″

Annual Catalog Early Release Offering May 2018

Annual Catalog Early Release Offering May 2018

Hooray, a new catalog is coming!!  Oh my gosh, wait until you see the new 2018-2019 Stampin’ UP! catalog.  One page, and each product is more beautiful than the next.  And if you haven’t heard, we are having a color revamp.
 
Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog
What’s a color revamp, you might ask.  To keep up with color trends, maintain the freshness of our color palette and create new and exciting color combos, Stampin’ Up! will be retiring thirteen core colors along with the five 2016-2018 In-Colors.  We will also be adding five new 2018-2020 In-Colors, ten fresh new core colors and bringing back six very popular previous in-colors. Look at this beautiful color spectrum.
 
Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, Color Revamp
On top of that, the ink pad design has been improved and contains the following new features.
  • Slimmer case design, but no worries, it still flips to keep the ink at the surface.
  • Tighter fit to reduce the chance of the pad slipping on the track. Hooray, no more inky fingers getting the pad back together.
  • New color labels for both the front and inside of the pad,  no more mishaps stamping the wrong color.
  • The pads are stackable.  If you have limited space, this is a huge new feature.
  • The color label on the front of the pad is larger making it easier to identify.
  • A defoaming agent as been added to the ink formula. This will help to reduce those pesky bubbles, giving you a more evenly stamped image!
I know you are asking yourself, how can I get my hands on these new ink pads? Well, you are in luck.  Stampin’ Up! is offering an early release of the 2018-2020 In-Color Ink Pad Bundle!  That bundle is outlined in the flyer below.  Order the In-Color Stamp Pad Bundle from my online store, during the promotion, and I’ll throw in an *ink refill of your choice. (*Will be sent to you after the Catalog Launch, June 1, 2018.)

But wait, there is more!  So that you can not only stamp with the new colors, the exclusive “Share What You Love Suite” will be released May 1, 2018. Three exclusive bundles will be offered and with the purchase of any of these, Stampin’ Up! has thrown in free gifts.  The bundles  are  “Just Getting Started”, “A Little More, Please”, and “Gotta Have it All”.  All the details, and freebies are outlined in the flyer below.
