Washi Tape Twisties Video

Hey all!

‘Tis the season to drop off little ‘happies’ to nice people like hair stylists, neighbors, coworkers, mail carriers….so I saw an idea on Pinterest using wire and washi tape for weaving a bracelet.  I was thinking it would be great just for a treat bag since ribbon can get a little spendy if you need to make a lot of them.  Although washi tape is available in most crafty stores, I love that Stampin’ Up has washi tape that coordinates with their designer papers!

 I made a quick video to show how easy the washi tape twisties are to make.

(note: I had an odd yellow cast to my film this time. I could have shot it again but I’ve got some shopping to do!)

I love the way the  3×3 cards/envelope match the washi tape twistie.  And of course chocolate anytime is great but coordinating the paper and the washi twistie was fun to do!

Blendabilities Are Coming Soon!

20140505-203955.jpg

I just received my pre-order of the NEW Blendabilities! Aren’t they pretty?  They will be available sometime in June hopefully with our new catalog.  Sets of 3, $11.95 a pack. (US)

There must be some chatter out there about these because over the weekend, I had 5 emails asking me what they are and when they are coming so I made a quick video:

(if viewing from your email, you may need to come to blog to see video)

They don’t take the place of our current markers, which are water based. These are alcohol based like Copics and will offer another coloring medium for SU lovers that coordinates with all of our colors easily.

Skin Tones, Set of 6 will be 22.95 when they are available.

This is a great example of how the Blendabilities work better then regular markers direct to paper.  On the left is using the new alcohol markers. On the right, regular markers.

*by the way, I talked about the color remover.  It really should be called a Color Mover – it doesn’t erase as much as ‘scoot’ it back into your coloring area.  Wanted to clarify that as some people thought I meant it was an eraser. It did erase other spots for me if I went back and forth with it but not red!

I got a little crazy with the velcro dots but it does keep them all together until I find a better storage solution!

Be sure to use only Memento Tuxedo Black Ink with the Blendabilities, not StazOn which bleeds. The new Memento pad and refill will be available to customers June 2nd.

Goofing around on other papers with the new markers….SU suggests Whisper White.

Memento took 15 minutes to dry on vellum but it did dry eventually!

Another example of how vivid the new markers are!  The left and middle were done with ink/blender pen and aquapainter/ink pad.  The right is the Cherry Cobbler set of 3 Blendabilities.

Now for something you can buy this week!

Good from 5/6-5/12 Only

weekly deals may 6

My thoughts on the deals this week….

I love the stitched ribbon, sad that it is going. Great deal on that ribbon since you get 10 yards! Perfect for bdays and holidays.   The hearts a flutter stamp set is great but you will want the framelits to go with it – #130159 $24.95

So the deals this week may cost you a little more since you need things to go with them 🙂

You can order any of these and more HERE

The ornament framelits are great but IMO you will need the stamp set also.   $25.95 Clear Mount #128051

That’s all for me today!  Go Stamp Something!

Pop ‘N Cuts Die Video

Watch this really cute project video by Carrie Cudney at the Stampin’ Up home office!  The Pop ‘N Cuts are available in the Spring catalog on page 32.  You can get just the Card Base die and/or the Pop N Cuts die,  just the ALL DRESSED UP stamp set,  or the stamp set &  framelits bundle, too!

These pics were taken by me at the Leadership demo booth, where they were showing how to cut the cute pop ups:

I posted these in my swaps post from Leadership but sharing again here since it goes along with the video:

The one above was created by Linda Goldhersz (who is German) and added the lace to  the dress!

And this one by Wanda Smith, who added her SU apron to the dress!

If you’d like to order one or all of the products to make these, look on page 32.  They are a bit pricey for the whole enchilada package, BUT Sale-A-Bration is just around the corner!  January 22nd begins the free gift with every $50 so it would be good time to spend if you like it.  Think of all the ideas you could use it for!  Weddings, bridal showers, change of address (cute!) and more!
