Make beautiful fall invitation postcards in merely seconds!

Making good-looking postcards takes a little finesse because you can’t have any layers to get caught in the mail sorting machine.  Today I’m going to show you how to make beautiful fall invitation postcards in merely seconds with the Stampin’ Up! Letterpress Winter and For All Things Stamp Sets!

 If the video is not displaying properly, watch my Letterpress Winter and For All Things card tutorial here.

Make a beautiful fall invitation postcard.Masking is such a cool technique.  It’s always exciting to pull off the mask to reveal what’s underneath.   Masking let the Letterpress Winter frame “sit” on top of the leaves giving us the look of a layer without adding a layer.  Sure makes for a pretty one-layer only card.

Letterpress Winter and For All Things Stamp Sets are both from the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  If you want to order either or both of these stamp sets, remember that tomorrow, September 30, is the last day to redeem your discount on all your Holiday Catalog purchases in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com for correctly answering my Holiday Catalog Contest question!

 The stamping supplies are shown below.

Stamp, Stock & Save October 1 – October 6

A note about the Playful Pennants Stamp Set.  There is Playful Pennants Bundle that includes the stamp set and Petite Pennants Builder Punch.  If you do not yet own the Petite Pennants Builder Punch, you will save more money purchasing the bundle than you will purchasing the stamp set at 20% off and the punch separately.   The bundle gives you 15% off of both.  The Playful Pennants Clear Mount Bundle is $28.75.  The purchase the stamp set and punch during the sale will cost $30.51.  It isn’t a huge difference, but every little bit of savings helps.

If you already have the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and have had your eye on the Playful Pennants Stamp Set, you’ll want to order it in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com October 1 – October 6 to save 20%.

What stock up products are you hoping to see in the Stamp, Stock and Save sale?  Paper and envelopes are always good.  The three adhesives I use on virtually every project are SNAIL Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I’d love to see them included because you know I’ll be stocking up!

Comment left by Linda from Nevada about a previous Stampin’ Up! Catalog Ribbon/Paper Share:


Just received my 2012 Paper/Ribbon Share from Shelly and have only one thing to say: F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S-! It’s even better than last year’s offering! LOVE LOVE LOVE how organized everything is. There’s no guesswork and no wondering what the ribbon colors are or what the name of a particular collection of designer paper is. Everything is clearly labeled and wonderfully packaged. THANKS AGAIN, Shelly, for offering another spectacular share!

Love the snowflakes in the Stampin’ Up! Endless Wishes Set!

Stampin' Up! Endless Wishes CardLast year I wasn’t the only one to fall in love the with cute snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Endless Wishes Stamp Set.  To be more precise, I was gaga over the clean and simple card made by the Stampin’ Up! artist that designed the stamp set.  So simple and so stinkin’ cute.

At that time, photopolymer stamp sets were only while supplies last because they were made by a vendor.  And the supplies of Endless Wishes sold out in merely days.  Many a stamper was disappointed.  I can’t imagine how many stampers were thrilled to see Endless Wishes in the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog now that Stampin’ Up! is manufacturing their own photopolymer sets now.

How do you like the green mixed in with the blues?  A little unexpected, a lot pretty.  All the colors are from the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The green is my favorite green, Pear Pizzazz.  The blues are Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon.  There’s even a little Smoky Slate added in.   All the ink pad colors will be pictured lower in the post along with all the other stamping supplies used to make my Endless Wishes card.

A note about the White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  If you purchased any after August 28 – September 25, 2014, please check your embossing powder by embossing a stamped image.  Apparently some Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powders were mistakenly labeled White because they look very much alike.  If you ordered white from me and have clear embossing powder instead, let me know right away so I can get it replaced.

You no longer have to worry that Endless Wishes will sell out in days, but it is a limited-edition stamp set and available only through January 5, 2015.  That sounds like a long time off, but as a friend says once Labor Day comes it’s a slippery slope to Christmas.  She’s right.  It’ll seem like before we blink it will be Christmas.  I recommend you order Endless Wishes now in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com!

Founder’s Circle 2014: Day 4

Snow Flakes Team with Nordic Noel Tree Day 4 at Founder’s Circle was a free day until 4PM.  Our big final event was a service project.  We made ornaments, wrapped packages and decorated three Christmas trees that will be donated to the Festival of Trees.  We were told trees have sold for as high as $24,000!  And we got to be a part of it. My team, the Snow Flakes, made star button ornaments and decorated white houses for the Nordic Noel tree.  I have a slew of pictures showing off the ornaments and the ornaments in the Christmas trees for you.  If you weren’t in the Christmas spirit yet, this will do it! From the ornaments being made and the trees decorated, we did the three beautiful trees in just two hours!  Still can’t believe it.  We were good little elves. :) Anything that could be Stampin’ Up! was Stampin’ Up!  See what products you recognize as you look at the pictures.

After the trees were decorated we had Christmas dinner.  Look at how beautiful our tables were decorated!

Snow Flakes Table

Final Dinner place setting

After a tasty turkey dinner (you saw that coming, didn’t you?), we sat our tables and chatted.  I was having a lovely time and could have stayed for hours.  My group was filled with sweet ladies.

The bus brought us back.  It was time to say my goodbyes because the I had to be on the 5AM van for the airport.  I made some new friends and was sad it came to an end too quickly.  At the same time was ready to go home to what I call normal.  If I could have just taken my new friends with me.

Once back to my room, there laying on the bed was my final pillow gift.  Last year I learned it’s always a charm.

Day 4 Founder's Circle Pillow Gift

Day 4 Pillow Gift Charm

Then it was time to pack my suitcase with all the gifts.  The daily game prizes were all wrapped too.  As you can see, I couldn’t bring myself to unwrap them to see what was inside.  I knew they were Stampin’ Up! products, and I would love them.  I love beautifully wrapped gifts.  The wrapping was as big of a gift to me as the presents.

Founder’s Circle 2014 was a blast!  I hope to get to earn this honor again.
