Starting Monday – Stampin’ Up! Canada’s Online Extravaganza sale is BACK! November 20 – 26th – save 10-50% on selected Stampin’ Up! products! It starts off with a bang – selected stamp sets are on sale for 20% off on Monday ONLY, and ends with a flash – a flash sale (more info to follow) on November 27th.
Here’s the list of stamps on sale Monday – from 12AM to 1159PM Mountain Time:
You can download the full list of sales items here. A lot of the stamp sets on sale on Monday coordinate with other items on sale the full week – for example, Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlits which coordinates with the Bloomin’ Love set; plus Watercolour Pencils are on sale which are great for sets like Garden Girl.
Any Paper Pumpkin Items on the sale list are while supplies last. Your best bet to make sure you don’t miss out on anything is to place your order online at the YamStamps Online Stampin’ Up! Canada Store. If you have any questions or need assistance placing your order, please feel free to contact me. I will have an order or two going in this week, but if you’re going for a limited supply item (e.g. Paper Pumpkin kit or refill) just know that I can’t guarantee it will be available until the order is finalized.
Boo! Scary thing is – it’s the last day that you could get the Merry Patterns stamp set for free! This is the stamp set that Stampin’ Up! is offering free with a $375 product order (and NO, it doesn’t have to be just one person ordering – most people have earned it by having a group of friends place orders together, or having a card making party). This card is from October’s Christmas Card Class – each participant received a package of Stitched Felt Embellishments that we then used on the cards. The sentiment is from the Merry Patterns set – as are the tree trunks (those are the patterned candle portions). The “stitched” cardstock trees are created using the Quilt Builder Framelit Dies – which you can also get in a discounted bundle along with the Christmas Quilt Stamp Set. I thought this combination was fun and coordinated well!
More scary news – it’s also the last day for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Sale! Selected papers have been part of this special, and if you still need to stock up, you have until end of day to take advantage of this deal! I put together a huge binder featuring all the different designer series papers that were part of the special and had it on hand at the Scrapfest / CreativFest booth this past weekend. I’ll still be able to share this way of seeing the papers, but the deal will be gone….*sigh*
So here’s some good scariness…..how about a Halloween card?!
I received this fun card as part of a demonstrator swap a little while back! We each created a number of copies of our card design, and received a card from everyone participating in the swap! I love this card from Lesley Poper. The eyeballs peeking out of the cup make me laugh….and of course the cup reminds me of my oh so favourite “Grande, Coconut Milk Chai Latte…with cinnamon powder please”. Not sure how happy I’d be to see those eyeballs looking at me though… I am sharing a number of the Halloween themed cards on my various media platforms today at various times – so besides here at the YamStamps blog, you can also check out YamStamps on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see different fun holiday projects!
I hope that you and your goblins have a fun and safe Happy Halloween!!
What’s YOUR least used colour? We all have colours that we prefer to work in…and those we can’t always find inspiration to use…. For me, my least used colour is Stampin’ Up’s Cajun Craze. At least until this season! It is a perfect colour for autumn leaves and changing shades of nature.
For this autumn themed card, the strip is stamped with the large and small leaves from the Colo(u)rful Seasons set. (If you are reading this today, October 10th, it’s the last day of the World Cardmaking Day Sale and this set is discounted!) Colours used are Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke. After randomly stamping the strip, it’s spritzed with water (Stampin’ Spritzers are perfect for this), and allowed to dry….or hurried along with the Heat Tool. This blurs the colours and gives it a soft effect – almost looking like velvet or some other type of material. It’s a forgiving and easy technique! It’s backed with that least used colour of mine, Cajun Craze, and then the finishing touch is a die cut leaf from the Seasonal Layers framelits in Gold Foil. The Gold Foil sheet was backed with an Adhesive Sheet prior to running it through the Big Shot to make it easier to adhere neatly to the card. (Hint: Make sure you use a brand new sheet….not one that you might have already used some of the adhesive from….so that the leaf sticks entirely….ask me how I learned this tip…..!!)
I did have to make a conscious effort to use this colour for this card, but I think I need to challenge myself like this a little more often! What’s YOUR least used colour? Leave me a comment and let me know, and then maybe even challenge yourself to pull it out and make something with it.
Today is World Cardmaking Day! Stampin’ Up! is already celebrating by offering selected stamp sets at a discounted price until October 10th, and selected Designer Series Papers are Buy 3 Get 1 Free During the entire month! You can shop online in the YamStamps Stampin’ Up! Canada Store here – however, I have one more special offer for you – TODAY ONLY!
If you’d like to hear more about the class, you can go here – but if you want the special pricing, you’ll need to use the above link. The special will be in effect Saturday, October 7th ONLY.
I think that the Clever Cards Class is a great way to celebrate World Cardmaking Day. This class features a number of interesting and clever folds that you can use for your cards when you want an extra special card! It’s an online class, so you can learn from the comfort of your own home, and like all the YamStampsMore Online Classes, you’ll have lifetime access to the videos and instructions.
I hope that you are able to spend a bit of time today being creative. World Cardmaking Day is a fun way to celebrate the art and craft of a handmade card – and of course, part of the joy of making a card is sharing it with someone – so I hope that you take the time to send a handmade card as well. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
