Stampin’ Up home office did a quick video on stamping with embossing folders. I remember Carrie Cudney from SU doing a great demo using this technique back in 2012 at convention and I made her card using the stamped folder technique. You can see the delicate design of the Vintage Wallpaper folder (this was from 2012, so it’s retired now) stamped in Crumb Cake ink on the Vanilla card stock:
(The embossed area is called Faux Patina which I did as a Stamping School video. So if you are on there, search for Faux Patina)
Here’s the SU home office video for Folder Stamping. If you are viewing this post from your email you may need to come to the blog HERE to view:

Hi everyone! These kits really flew under the radar for me but my customers have been creating some fun things with them so I thought I’d spotlight them.
The kit is called Gratitude for Days. You can use it as a countdown to Thanksgiving recording your gratitude from day to day and hang them up as a reminder with these colorful cards and pockets. Kit includes 33 cards and 30 pockets, as well as stickers and binder clips.
Some are decorating them and sending to the family in advance so they can read them all on Thanksgiving day!
One customer even used them at a baby shower this month for writing advice to the new mom! The pockets and notes are just so cute.
Gratitude For Days Simply Created Kit # 135868 $21.95

That Lovely Lace folder is one of my favorites, too
Here are a few of the notable things inside and clicking on the pictures will take you to a description in my store:
This is a great set and coordinates with the Star Framelits!
It’s photopolymer so you can cut the stars in advance and still line them up.
15.95 for 16 stamps, # 138105
This is a new Project Life stamp set, it’s photopolymer also, but is adorable for tags and cards if you aren’t memory keeping right now. It coordinates with a few punches like the hexagon, 1″ and 1-1/4″ circles and the long banner framelit from the Project Life Cards & Labels collection.
$15.95 for 13 stamps, item # 136562
The other notable new product is the Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit
This kit is HUGE!
It makes 26 stars, some 3D, in 6 sizes, from 2: to 15″. All the words are laser cut and ready to go.

Here’s a fun new tool for your crafting toolbox and it’s just released today!
This little guy makes an impression! Literally. It’s a mini big shot that only embosses. 29.95 Item #132657
Now, it can never take the place of the Big Shot, which cuts everything as well as embosses. This lil guy would be good for crops or craft days where you want to take an embossing machine with you. It’s light! Or maybe I may get one for my classes when I want to emboss at one table and cut with my Big Shot at another table.
Here’s a quick video from SU:
Just because it’s SAB time doesn’t mean there aren’t Weekly Deals every Tuesday!
Here are this week’s sale items good through February 3rd.
Whew! That was a LOT of good things, right? Thanks for sticking with me to the end:) If you want anything you see here, call or email or order online HERE!
The latest cool tool from Stampin’ Up is available starting today! It’s called the Envelope Punch board:
Watch Brian Pilling from Stampin’ Up score and punch envelopes. It’s easy and makes 66 sizes of envelopes!
I have one here in my stamp room but with my 2 eye surgeries, I’m not focused enough yet to try it out. This week I should get my hands on it and play! I was thinking I wouldn’t need it with my diagonal score board but this is much easier and I LOVE that it punches the notches out so nicely. It’s also more compact and with at least 66 sizes, that’s pretty cool!
Envelope Punch Board Item #133774 $19.95
It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
It’s small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it on the go! Portable and easy to store.
It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
It’s easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don’t have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won’t lose them!).
The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
It will be in next year’s annual catalog, so it’s here to stay.
