A Stamp Off Sneak Peek

Stamp Off Logo Clean

This time our Stamp Off Challenge is a sketch challenge.  I love sketch challenges the best because I find them the easiest to do.  I know that sounds bad but I have a much harder time with the other challenges.  I won’t even try to guess who made this challenge because I usually get it wrong.


Here is my card:

Sealed With Love, Love Notes, 2017 Occasions Catalog, Stampin Up, susanstamps.wordpress.com #onStage2016

I used a new stamp set and some new dies that will be in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  This catalog will be available January 4, 2017.  You are going to love it!  The stamp set is called Sealed With Love and the dies are called Love Notes Framelits.   You will be able to save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.

I absolutely love the heart edge die in this set.  I think it will get a lot of use all year round.  It cuts out the hearts on both sides but only scores them in the middle so they pop out.  The stamp set has 27 stamps included with it.  The dies, oh the dies, are awesome.  It has hearts, arrows, two little envelopes and so much more.  You are going to love it!

Now, let’s go check out what Jackie and Buffy made for this sketch challenge.

Dragonfly Dreams Sneak Peek

Dragonfly Dreams, Stampin Up, 207 Occasions Catalog, susanstamps.wordpress.com

One of my favorite things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is I get to see the new catalogs that are coming out before customers.  What is even better is I get to see them before some Demonstrators because I attended OnStage Local this year.  OnStage and OnStage Local are events that Stampin’ Up! holds for their Demonstrators.  There is on held in April and November every year.  In April you get the new Annual Catalog and in November you get a copy of the next Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs.

You can also win product at these events.  I won a new stamp set called Dragonfly Dreams.  It has dragonflies and bees along with some sentiments.  It also has a matching set of dies called Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  I did not win the matching Thinlits so I didn’t use them in this card, but I do have to say, it has this one die in it that is just adorable.  It is a die with multiple dragonflies all attached.  It is definitely on my list to purchase.

Speaking of purchasing, as a Demonstrator I also get to order products early.  The 2017 Occasions Catalog starts in January but I can order on December 1st!  I can’t wait!

If you are interested in joining me at one of these events then just click on the Join Now button to the right.  You get to pick $125 worth of products for just $99 (plus tax)  Shipping is free with your start up kit!  There is no obligation and you don’t have to buy another thing, but I know you will want to!

Sneak Peeks

As you already know, I attended OnStage Local in Secaucus, New Jersey last weekend.  One of the great things we got was a copy of the upcoming 2017 Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs.  I can’t show you what is inside these fabulous catalogs but I can show you the covers.  If you look carefully you will see some of the new products that will be in them.  You will be able to order from both of these catalogs beginning January 4, 2017.

Another fun thing we did at OnStage Local is make ‘n takes.  We got to make four of them.  Here are the cards we made.  The first card uses an awesome birthday stamp set and has matching Thinlits.  One of the Thinlits makes a pop up on the inside of the card.  It is just the cutest!

The next card uses a wonderful set of Thinlits that you are going to just love.  It make this beautiful belly band below.  Isn’t it gorgeous??



The third card uses some new Designer Series Paper that you can color.  Color?  Oh yes.  There is something in the catalog to color with!  Yay!  dsc03591

The last set of cards use a wonderful Valentine’s stamp set and matching Framelits.  One of the Framelits makes the cute little envelope you see in the middle card.  Plus, it makes the arrows, lined heart and so much more.  The stamp set has 27 stamps in it and the Framelits have 14!!
