We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop-Kicking off Sale-A-Bration!

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

Are you ready to SALE-a-brate? You read that correctly! Stampin’ Up! has brought back my favorite time of the year for a second time!!! Qualifying purchases of $50 or $100 increments earns you FREE products.

Yep it’s that simple… order a new supplies for holiday cards and poof the Stampin’ Up! Santa brings you FREE products. Order back to school supplies and maybe a welcome back gift for a special teacher and bam, you move to the head of the economics class with great return on investment (yes that is the FREE product).

Keep reading to see how I made the most of my demonstrator only (love all the perks!) pre-order of the items found in the NEW Sale-a-bration catalog.

Raise your hand if you remember the 70’s. This “where are my sunglasses” Be Dazzling 6×6 speciality paper from the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) catalog is like looking into a disco ball.

My sample card is a more like a triple whammy of newness. 1. The new 21-2023 In Color Soft Succulent is my base and the circle stamp ink color. 2. That “circle” image is from the Textures & Frames Stamp set on page 12 of the SAB catalog that I earned for FREE and last but not least 3. The Be Dazzling paper as previously mentioned.

Watch for my post in August that will blow your mind with what I do with this paper!

Bonus whammy of newness 4. Did you see that little peek of ribbon at the top? That is the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon found on page 37 of the fall Mini Catalog. Wait… did I mention I colored it to match my Mint Macaroon layer? Yes, you can color this ribbon with your Stampin’ Blends.

Queue the heavenly music.

Let’s a take a quick moment to talk about the card itself.

It is a pocket card made by cutting a full sheet on the short side at 4 1/4, folding it in half and using Tear Tape along the long side to create the pocket and punch a piece out of the top to be able to grab the message card-I used the Tailored Tag.

Inside the pocket the card dimensions are 3 1/2 x 5 1/4. Add a coordinating layer for message writing and any sentiments. For this pocket card I stamped off my ink so the images would not interfer with the message. The colors in the card are Soft Succulent, Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss.

I loved the message card part of this card so much that I see many more versions of this card with this stamp and design combo … in all sorts of shapes (and colors too) thanks to the stamp design.

If you are really digging the pocket style card stay tunned to see the one I made with the Pretty as a Peach bundle…summer isn’t over yet (even if we are all drooling over all the new holiday products)

SALE-A-Bration -A “Berry” Cute Sneak Peek

Did you know I hate strawberries? Blue berries are that much higher on my list but raspberries…that’s a different story! That’s only to eat them though because they are completely cute in the Berry Blessing stamp set and coordinating Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper you can earn FREE during SALE-a-bration.

One of the best “perks” about being a demonstrator is not the high quality product, early access to new stamps, ink and paper, 20-25% discount or even the extra income I make for my family- trust me all of that is amazing but the best perk is really the incredible relationships I have with my stamping family.

This card is a perfect example, even when we can’t get together for our monthly card swap my stamping family sent me their cards. The one above is from Leigh Amburgey see the other cute ways she uses the set on her blog.

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White! 

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple! 

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. We know preorder is a time for you to purchase new items to prepare for the upcoming months of your business so we wanted to give you this information before Whisper White products sell out and before all Basic White products are fully ready so you can include it in your business planning. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White productsmay be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

Handmade Cards

Organdy Ribbon OUT OF STOCK

Don’t wait to earn your Sale-a-bration items!

This just announced :

The Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (item 149623) may be one of our most popular Sale-A-Bration items ever.
It’s been so popular, in fact, that it has exceeded our product forecast and sold out in our North American markets.
We have a shipment coming in to fulfill backorders, but because this item has been in such high demand, we have been forced to turn off the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack.
Unfortunately, this initial shipment will help us fulfill only orders that have already been placed.
Once backorders have been fulfilled, a second shipment will arrive at the beginning of March, which will allow us to turn on this item again; it will be available while supplies last only.
We’re so sorry for the inconvenience, Stampin’ Up!
