New Stampin' Up! Customer Website

New Online Store

Beginning August 4th at 7:00 AM (MT) Stampin' Up! is bringing you a new and improved online shopping experience!

There are quite a few improvements that you'll really like. I'm most excited about the new site working seamlessly on desktops, smartphones, and tablets, larger images for products and samples, more intuitive navigation and searches, and last but not least, you can create a wish list and favorites!

Rest assured your account information and password still work with the new site. Because this is a new site you will need to sign in the first time you shop. If you had your browser remember your email and password, it won't be saved anymore. If you are unsure of your login ID and password, I recommend using the Forgot Password link to reset your password as soon as possible (see steps below)

I kindly ask that you visit my store starting August 4th, sign in, and please select me as your demonstrator. You may still use a demonstrators host/hostess code with your order if you do that each time you order. You can do this by using the Find a Demonstrator link at the top of the page or when you are checking out. Whether you sign in to your account or checkout as a guest, if you don't select a demonstrator one will be assigned for you.

As always, feel free to contact me at any time! I love to discuss all things stampy!


New Store - Sign-in

Improved Navigation

It’s easier to find what you are looking for with navigation menus that expand. For example, the image shows what happens if you select “Stamps” from the Featured Products section. You can then narrow down your search by Season, and then refine it even more with a specific season.

Spotlight on the Forever Greenery Suite from Stampin' Up!

The Annual Catalog Inspiration

Forever Greenery Suite

When you think of leaves you may think of autumn, but the Forever Greenery Suite is here to change your mind!

This gorgeous collection of leafy images and greetings is one of my top must-have items from the new Annual Catalog. The detailed images are timeless and work with a variety of styles from rustic to modern. Use them alone for quick and simple cards or add the dies and coordinating embellishments to really create that wow effect.

These leaves won't fall behind in autumn, I'll be reaching for them to create all year-round. This shabby chic card tutorial is just one example of the colorful creations you can make with this suite! I have already made almost a dozen card varieties with this collection. You can see them at my YouTube channel, Facebook Page, Pinterest page or Blog links at the bottom of this email or under the top header. I hope that you will follow me on some of these platforms! I can easily share even more samples in those forms! I also have a Facebook Group called "Beth's Paper Cuts Idea Sharing Group" where you can see my samples and show what you are making too!! Sharing ideas is one of the many great reasons to love Stampin' Up!

Simple to Super with the Tasteful Touches stamp set

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a trio of cards using the Tasteful Touches stamp set.  I wanted to show them in a group like this so that you can see how to make a really simple version for when you need a pretty card quickly, and then a couple other ways to step it up when you have a little more time or materials on your hands.

I really like this stamp set for the imagery and the sentiments.  The sentiments are especially nice in these days of social distancing. I really like the "Just Saying Hello" or the "you are so special" to send to friends who I have not been able to meet with in a while.

I made a video on this trio that you can view here:

This is the Simple version.  I used just Stamps, ink and Paper on this, no special tools needed.  The card base is Gray Granite with a background using the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. I used Pretty Peacock cardstock for the sentiment.  the flower is stamped in Memento Ink and colored with Stampin' Blends in Rococo Rose and Mango Melody.

On this second card I stepped it up a bit by adding a die cut piece behind the flower using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, a favorite of mine! I also cut the flower out and popped it up with Dimensionals, and added some Linen Thread behind.

For this third version I stepped it up even further by adding some gold foil leaves from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. I also embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder.

And one more! I added some gold Gilded Gems to this last version.  I can't decide if they are good or too much. 

Hopefully this shows that you can make simple cards when you need to and then step up your design as time and product allow.

I hope that you will check out this pretty paper and the stamp set.  You can click on the images below to go right to my shop. 

Shop with me! I would love to be your demonstrator.  I always send a hand stamped thank you card and sometimes more with a larger order, and I share my Stampin' Rewards with you through my Frequent Buyer Rewards! Earn FREE STAMPS! Click on the Frequent buyer tab to download the tracking sheet.

The Nothing's Better Than the Nothing's Better Than Bundle!

I just love this stamp set and die collection! It contains my favorite things, coffee, chocolate and Cookies!   Anytime Stampin' Up! comes out with a new set featuring coffee I just have to have it.  This bundle was on my very first order when the new Annual Catalog came out.  Last week I showed you some cards I made that used Real Coffee to paint a background, this week I would like to show a few more things that you can make with this bundle.

  Wouldn't it be fun to send a friend a plate of cookies?  With everyone social distancing right now, this would be a nice gesture to say you are thinking of your friends and family.

You could send a fellow coffee lover a cards with this coffee stamp.  Let them know you are looking forward to sharing a cup of coffee with them soon.  Or, use this coffee stamp to send a Starbucks's gift card!  Even my kids would love that!  Vanilla Frappuccino and a Cake Pop is my daughter's idea of a good time!

How cute is this little box?! This is the new mini Paper Pumpkin box! So cute and a nice size for sending little treats like chocolate!

The Nothing's Better Than stamp set and Love You More Than dies are really cute and super fun to use to make up lots of different combinations of the sentiments!
 Here are a few more fun cards with this collection.  These have a retro feel to them.   You can download a PDF that has the Recipes for the cards above and the two below here: PDF
