Each month I swap cards with a group of 10-12 demonstrators.
Here are a few of them from this month:
Deb Townsend made this beauty by embossing the flower on SU vellum card stock in gold, then either brayering or sponging Cherry Cobbler ink on the back. Our gold foil sheets used to cut out the Merry thinlit really adds the balance to the gold embossing.
Mary hall stamped Lovely As a Tree in Night Of Navy ink, then added Dazzling Diamonds glitter with a glue pen over the trees as snow. She embossed the sweet deer (from Joyful Celebrations set) in silver powder and fussy cut him out.
Kimberly Allen really stepped up the silver foil card stock by embossing the Stylist Stripes diagonal folder in 2 directions to create a plaid! Brushed Silver card stock and silver glimmer paper really sparkle in person.
Elizabeth Hardin created this sweet layout by using Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler card stock with For the Birds. I love this set because it’s so versatile. See it on page 28 of the big Stampin’ Up catalog.
Rhea Hughes added a touch of that pretty foil paper, Winter Frost, along the top and bottom of this pretty card. The Frosted Finishes add pretty sparkle to the middle of the snowflakes!
Linda Pagel created this fun gift Santa card holder Easel Card.
The band of Brown Sugar card stock is the pocket for the gift card and acts as a stopper to keep the card propped up.
Totally non-stamping related! Do you know what new breed this is? A Pomsky! Half husky, half Pomeranian. Yes, we are still partial to Boston Terriers but entertaining the idea of other breeds. (Matt loves huskies) I’m told they get about 15-20 pounds, look like a husky but stay small. I hear they still howl like a husky so can be noisy. Meanwhile, we are still checking out the Boston terrier adoptions!
I hope you are inspired to go stamp something today!

The 2nd promotion is a TEST PILOT PROGRAM that SU is experimenting with. They realize that some stampers may want just one stamp out of a stamp set. Maybe you have a baby shower or someone needs that one stamp only to make a project perfect!
Stampin’ Up is testing the sale of Single Stamps. They have chosen 3 stamp sets to purchase individual stamps- Word Play, Perfectly Penned, and Seasonal Sayings. The offer will be available now through January 2, 2013.
Here are a few things you need to know before purchasing:
These stamps are available on any order type-customer, demonstrator, workshop, or online.
You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
These single stamps can be ordered in the online store.
These won’t be sent to you in our typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags. If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
The stamps won’t come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you’ll need to buy a block separately if you don’t already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyers.
There’s no limit on how many pieces you can buy.
This offer is not available in Quebec.
Remember that this is a pilot program, so take advantage of it while you can!
Keep in mind that there is a minimum 6.95 shipping for orders under $69, then it’s only 10%. (that would defeat the $5 stamp lol) If you want a stamp and you see me locally, I can throw it on an order and you can get it from me at the next class to save on shipping.
