The Stars are Shinning

The Stars are Shinning (156345) is one of those great little sets that make quick and easy cards since it has a punch (156380) that coordinates with it. And right now you can get both items in a bundle (156780), so you save too.

Check out these lovely cards using this bundle of products. This first card uses simple stamping and is monochromatic. It also uses the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper (156329) that I shared with you yesterday.

And how about this card done in non traditional colors?

Heat embossing was used for the stars to make them shine and the White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon (156408) add a bit of sparkle. And this final card uses heat embossing again, this time in gold to make the stars shine.

I love the fact that our Stampin’ Emboss Powders (155555) give us 3 great options in every set. So what do you think? Can you see the possibilities? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which card you like best? Then stop by my Online Store and check out this and other holiday crafting items today!

With the Last Chance List starting tomorrow I wanted to remind you about the change Stampin’ Up! is making to items on Back Order. I’ll be posting this list along with my Catalog Walk Through for you later today.


As you may have heard reported in the news, unprecedented shipping and logistics issues have resulted in a global supply chain crisis. This is affecting businesses world-wide and Stampin’ Up! is no exception. Due to extreme difficulties caused by these issues, starting the 1st of December 2021, Stampin’ Up! will no longer take orders for products that are not in stock. In other words, Stampin’ Up! will no longer accept back orders. This change will help to reduce frustrations from unpredictable product availability and allow you to order products that will be delivered right away, rather than products that may not be delivered for months.  

If you’d ever like to know if a product is available, please check  my online store  The online store is a great resource to browse products, determine availability, and place orders for in-stock items with me. I would love to help you find the right products so you can start creating without waiting!

If you already have an outstanding back orders, know that as products are received, Stampin’ Up! will fulfill outstanding back orders. If you have any questions about this change please feel free to reach out to me.

Fun with my Team & More

Have you ever thought about crafting with a group of friends who love stamping as much as you do? I get to do this every month with my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers. We gather, share, and stamp together. The friends I’ve met through stamping is one of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

My Team gathered this week to stamp together and share. So today I thought I’d share some of the project they brought as swaps. I always love to see what everyone is stamping and the different styles of stamping to. This months theme was Christmas Cards.

This first card was stamped with the Evergreen Elegance Stamp set (153313) and it’s coordinating Evergreen Border Punch (153603).

It uses not only the lovely Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper (156292) but also the In Color Shimmer Vellum (155616). A bit of texture was added with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder (155431). And for a final bit of shine our Champagne Rhinestone Jewels (151193). And this next card uses the Christmas Season Bundle (156801).

A bit of our Red Velvet (153490) has been cut with the Seasonal Label Dies (156299) as a back drop on the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper background (155718), and our Gilded Gems (152478) add not only shine but texture too.

This lovely basket of poinsettias is from our Season’s Blessings Bundle (155485). The Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper (155718) adds some interest along with he Star Crossed Embossing Folder (156567). You’ll want to check out the Season’s Blessing Stamp set it’s not just for Christmas but has lots of fun images for year round crafting. This next card uses the Stars are Shinning stamp set (156345) and Punch (156380).

Done in Sahara Sand and Basic White it’s a great way to create. And finally this wonderful card for the avid crafter using the Merriest Moments Bundle (156353).

This bundle has not only the dies but a Embossing folder also, giving the die cut image wonderful texture. A simple technique using the Stampin’ Write Markers were used to create the two color sentiment on the front.

And of course everyone loves a quick and simple 3D gift item for the holidays, right?

This little treat was created using our Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper (156313) and a bit of our Real Red Ruffled Ribbon (156323).

We have lots of fun sharing and grow together. Did you know that if you ever have thought about joining in the fun and being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator now is a great time?
