Stamparatus Update and More

CHANGE IN STAMPARATUS RESERVATION WINDOWS

The initial response and preorder for the Stamparatus was so amazing that Stampin’ Up! decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.

BE READY TO RESERVE YOUR STAMPARATUS TODAY, DEC. 5 AT 2 P.M. MT (4 P.M. ET)!

The second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period Stampin’ Up! will take as many orders as they receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!

Please note the following changes:

  • Beginning March 19, Stampin’ Up! will ship Stamparatuses 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).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
  • Because they are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, they will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

Please note what has not changed:

  • If you reserved more than one stamping tool during the first reservation period, that number will not change; you will still receive the same number you reserved.
  • If you reserved one or more stamping tool(s) during the first reservation period, you may still order during the second window.
  • The final reservation window will open at 2:00 P.M. MT ( 4:00 P.M. ET) on December 5. 
You must log into your customer account on the Stampin’ Up! website and have your credit card ready to make your reservation.
Please note other important information:
  • If you are going to RESERVE a Stamparatus, please go to my online store here.
  • Create an account and/or be logged in before 2 pm MT on Dec. 5 for the fastest reservation experience.
  • There will be a link right on the home page to click to RESERVE your Stamparatus.  *Your credit card will not be charged until your order ships.
  • When your Stamparatus is ready to ship you will get an email notifying you that it is in your cart.  You will be able to add to that order.  IMPORTANT!!!  The Stamparatus is $49 and Sale-A-Bration will be going on at that time.  If you add anything to your order, you will qualify for at least one FREE item with that order!

Star of Light Candle Box

I enjoy the glow of burning candles! (And I absolutely love the smell when you blow them out!) Candles are a symbol of hospitality and I think they make a great hostess gift. Today’s project is a beautiful box to gift some candles.

Stampin Up Star of Light candle box idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The box holds 4  10″ dinner candles.

Stampin Up Star of Light candle box idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I CASEd this idea from the amazing Sam Hammond (Pootles.com).  She is so talented and an absolute joy to listen to (Love her British accent!). You can watch her video below.

We don’t have “standard” size candles in the US so I had to adjust the dimensions to fit my 10″ candles.

I started with a piece of 12 x 12 cardstock and cut 2 7/8 from one side so it measures 12 x 9 1/8. With the long (12 inch) side across the top, score at 7/8 and 11 1/8.  Score along the short side at 7/8, 4 1/8, 5, 8 1/4.

I followed Sam’s directions for cutting and assembling the box. *You need to use a strong adhesive (Fast Fuse, Tear & Tape, or Multipurpose Liquid Glue) on the 6 notched pieces.

I adjusted the layers on the top of my boxes to fit my measurements. The top layers measure 9 3/4 x 2 3/4 and 9 1/2 x 2 1/2. The Star of Light Stamp set is perfect for this box.  I love to heat emboss and it was fun to try out the different color combinations. I used silver embossing powder on navy and purple, gold on green, and white on red. These boxes are so quick & easy to make which worked out great for me because I need several hostess gifts! Here’s a look at each of the different color combinations I made.

This Whisper White box has silver foil and Perfect Plum layers on top with silver embossing. This box holds 3 purple and 1 pink candle for a coworker who bought a new advent wreath and needed some candles.  (Purple candles are not always easy to find so I stock up when I find them.)

Next is my red and white box with white embossed layers. I put red and white candles wrapped in white organza ribbon inside. I have good news…Stampin’ Up! brought back the white organza ribbon!  I love this ribbon as it is so easy to sponge in different colors. (Click HERE to see one of my first blog posts showcasing this technique.) The ribbon will be available in the new Occasions Catalog Jan. 3rd. Yea!!!

I love the green and very vanilla with gold embossing on this box. (The photo does not do it justice!) There are vanilla candles inside.

Navy and white are classic and so elegant with the silver embossing and Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

I really like these boxes and would be thrilled to receive any one of them as a gift! Which candle box is your favorite?

Here’s a fun fact…Did you know the practice of placing lighted candles in the windows at Christmas was brought to America by the Irish?  The historical background of this custom is quite interesting.

A Card Sketch for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #26

I look forward to Thursdays! I love seeing how others interpret the Tic Tac Toe Challenge board each week. Here’s this week’s challenge board.

No automatic alt text available.

I was intrigued by the sketch element this week and decided to use that in my design. When I first started stamping I would draw sketches of cards I saw and liked.  (Who knew I could just google card sketches and have tons of samples to choose from?! Obviously not me at the time.) This is one of my favorites.

Mojo Monday - The Blog

To me, this is a classic, quick & easy, go to sketch. You can punch the circles or cut them with dies.  You can cut patterned paper or stamp images and sentiments…so many possibilities! Here’s my card.

Stampin Up Painted Harvest Thank You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I chose the far right row going down: chevron, sketch, acorn. I used the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch to cut the chevron and acorn designs from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper pack. The sentiment is from the Painted Harvest stamp set and stamped in Early Espresso ink. I used the new Stampin Blends to color the acorn and leaves from COunt My Blessings stamp set. I love coloring with the Blends! They are so easy to work with! I used Crumb Cake, Old Olive, and Bronze to color then fussy cut it out and attached to my card with Stampin Dimensionals. *Quick Tip: Put a piece of scrap paper under your project when you are coloring with the Stampin’ Blends. (I put a post it note inside my envelope to prevent my ink from bleeding through while I was coloring.) Here’s my envelope to match.
