Pals December 2017 Blog Hop: All That Sparkles and Shines




Welcome to the Pals December 2017 Blog Hop featuring “All that Sparkles and Shines”. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

For this card, I chose to use a technique I used this past October for my Splitcoaststamper's Falliday Fest Challenge Tutorial. Unless specified, all products are Stampin' Up!


I used a stamp from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set for the speckles and splatters. The die cut and the stamped sentiment are from the Santa's Sleigh stamp set and coordinating thinlits. The video below explains the process, which is a simpler, more controlled version of the old shaving cream technique that has been around for years. I was very excited when I came up with it last summer. I call it "Not Your Mother's Shaving Cream Technique".    



I really love the Night of Navy color mixed with the gold embossing and glittery deer! Full supply list will be below the blog hop information.

Contemporary Christmas Card and Free Shipping Today Only!

This card started out as just an experiment with the new Brusho Crystals that will be available in the 2018 Occasions Catalog in January. These are dry paint crystals that activate with water. They have a ton of possibilities! Unless noted, all products Stampin' Up!


The first thing I did was put the tree from the Santa's Sleigh stamp set on the acrylic block upside down. In other words, I would be using it like a shadow stamp. I stamped it with Lemon Lime Twist on to a watercolor panel. Then I sprinkled some of the Brusho on the paper and gave it a little spritz with water. After it dried, I stamped the actual tree image on top of the shadow image with Emerald Envy ink. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of watercolor paper and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

If you notice that the ribbon doesn't exactly match the DSP I used on the bottom of the card, you are correct! I knew it didn't match perfectly (the darker color in the paper is Tranquil Tide), but I didn't really care. I love that Stampin' Up! has SO many things that coordinate color-wise, but sometimes you need to go outside the box and see that other pairings will work also.

Reserve The New Stamparatus Today!

First things first, then I will get to the details: No payment is required to reserve your Stamparatus today!  Payment is not required until it is ready to ship beginning March 19, in the order they were reserved. I thought with everyone in the middle of their holiday shopping for others that little detail might be very important to you. 

The second thing I want to let you in on is this: once your Stamparatus has shipped and I can confirm who ordered theirs from me, I will send you some bling through the mail. (Jewels, Gems or Pearls) along with a thank you from me! Please send me an email after you reserve yours, so I can add your name to my bling list!



The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes – world wide. Which provided Stampin’ Up! with some very important information: People LOVE this new stamping tool!

This time around, Stampin' Up! has a "reservation window" from Dec. 5th - Dec. 30. Starting today at 2 pm MT (3 pm CST), whether there are 100 or 100,000 reserved, the window will stay open until Dec. 30. This will be the last and only reservation window.

Beginning March 19, Stampin’ Up! will ship the Stamparatus in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in the warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).


You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with the Stamparatus – the BEST stamp positioning tool on the market! 



Retail Price: $49.00 (plus shipping and handling)

Why do YOU need a Stamparatus?
  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression (or to fill in a “missed spot”), apply more ink and re-stamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement
  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage underneath the Stamparatus.
Must see video with the 5 things you need to know about this amazing tool:


I’ve gotta have a Stamparatus. How do I reserve mine?


  • 1 tool per customer.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged ($49 plus shipping and sales tax) until the Stamparatus ships from the Stampin’ Up! facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
  • The Stamparatus will be a regular product in the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Annual Catalog, starting June 1.
HERE ARE HELPFUL TIPS to reserve your Stamparatus. 
  1. Please go to my online store HERE.
  2. Create an account and/or be logged in before 2 pm MT ( 3 pm CST) on Dec. 5 for the fastest reservation experience.
  3. After clicking thru and reaching my on-line store above, you will see a large Stamparatus Reserve Now Banner Ad.
  4. When you click on the Stamparatus Banner Ad, you will be taken to the reservation page.  
  5. If you click the link early you will be notified the reservation window isn’t open yet.

Global Design Project #115 and FREE SHIPPING TODAY ONLY!

I made the cutest little card yesterday! I decided I wanted an interesting shape instead of the standard rectangle or square card. I am also playing along over on the Global Design Project site.  All products Stampin' Up!


To create the shape, I used the largest die from the Lots of Labels Framelits set and one of the Whisper White Note Cards that come with matching envelopes. 

I folded the notecard and burnished the fold with my bone folder. I placed the die as shown, only cutting on 3 sides of the die, leaving the fold of the card intact. 




I cut one of the same size labels with a piece of paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I adhered it to the card front after embossing the snowflakes on it. 


The card measures just about 2 3/4 by 4 3/4. This idea would also make a great tag for a gift or an awesome place holder at your Christmas dinner. You could put the names on the bird instead of the sentiment and add an individual message to each guest!
