Stampin' Up! - 12 Days of Holiday Sales

What's on sale you ask? All sale items for use with your Stampin' Up! Big Shot Sizzix machine. Check out my SU website, click on SHOP NOW, then click 12 Days of Holiday Sales. In the drop down box on the fight of the page, select ALL to see all sale items on one page.

The sale runs now thru Tuesday, December 22, 2009, 11:50 PM (MT), but if you want the items to arrive in time for Christmas, they must be ordered by Tuesday, December 15, 2009. Discounts range between 15-25 percent. There are no quantity limits, no minimum purchase, or any other requirement for you to receive the discount. If you place your order online - discounts will be reflected in the "regular price"; "catalog price" will show the non-discounted price.
In conjunction with the 12 Days of Holiday Sales, I'm offering my own Big Shot special!!! From now through Dec 22, you can save $25 on your TOTAL ORDER when you purchase the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439) PLUS any TWO items from the 12 Days of Holiday Sales!! To take advantage of my Big Shot special, you MUST place your order directly with me (NOT my online store), because this is being offered only by me and not Stampin' Up! Remember, if you need these items for Christmas, you must get your order to me NLT Tuesday, December 15 - 5:00 PM CST and pay with a credit card - so I can get the order placed. I am not responsible for back orders from Stampin' Up! or delays in delivery by UPS.

Also, if your order is over $150 (net), you'll get a hostess item and merchandise freebies too - see the benefit chart here!!!! You can choose your hostess gift and free merchandise from any of the current catalogs: Idea Book & Catalog, Holiday Mini, & Definitely Decorative (all the vinyl & stencil products). You can check the catalogs out online here. When you click on a catalog, you will be prompted to download it (PDF - you must have Adobe Reader installed to view them). Then you can browse at your leisure.

WOW you'll be saving some big bucks - the GREEN kind!

Christmas Card using Frost White Shimmer Paint

Just wanted to do a quick post of another Christmas Card. It uses Stampin' Up! Textured Impressions Folder - Petals a Plenty and your Stampin' Up! Sizzix machine. I then used a Stampin Sponge and our new Frost White Shimmer Paint and just went over the embossed image with the shimmer paint. You can see it in the picture.

The cardstock used is Whisper White (embossed), Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, & Shimmery White. The stamp set is Serene Snowflakes from the Holiday 2009 Mini Catalog.

You can purchase the Serene Snowflakes stamp set (115438, $20.95), and Frost White Shimmer Paint (116854, $5.95) from the Holiday 2009 Mini Catalog until January 4, 2010. I'm hoping the Shimmer Paint will continue to be available in future catalogs.

TIP: You can use a small spray bottle (approx 2 oz). Put a couple drops of the shimmer paint in and fill half way (1 oz) with plain rubbing alcohol. Shake well, befure spraying on your projects. You will get a wonderful shimmer to your project, and because it uses alcohol, it will dry quickly. Want more noticable shimmer, then add another drop or two of shimmer paint. Customize the way you want. It is much more economical to make your own "shimmer mist" than buying the water based spray mists available elsewhere. Remember there is also Champaign Mist (golden tone) and Platinum (silvery) available. Use alone, or combine. The possibilities are endless. Remember to label your bottles.

You can order these or any items from current catalogs, on-line 24/7, from my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator website - just click SHOP NOW in the upper right hand corner, and select me to be your demonstrator. If you prefer, you can contact me to place your order.
