Onlline Extravaganza Starts Today!

Hello Stamping Friends!
Welcome to a new week and a great sale! Today is the beginning of Stampin'Up's annual Online Extravaganza... a fun sale to kick off the holiday shopping season.

I  have sent a flyer to you if you are on my customer mailing list.  In case you didn't receive the flyer, go to the Stampin'Up! web site at  There are some great deals, including some stamp sets at 50% off, so be sure to check it out.  If you decide to place an order, please go to my site to get the best price.

In addition, there are 2 items that are on sale for only 24 hours.  Since the sale started last night at midnight, that means that it is over tonight at 10:59 pm, as Stampin'Up! in Salt Lake City is on Mountain Time. 

                        122334 Simply Scored scoring board, p. 7 of the Holiday Mini is on sale for 23.96
                        125152 Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps, on sale for 13.56
The Simply Scored board would make a terrific gift for a stamper on your list, and the cookie stamps would be a great gift to take to the hostess of a holiday party.  Children would love it as well, not only for real cookies, but also for pretend "cookies" made with play-dough.

Today's card features one of the sale items in the Online Extravaganza.  Check it out...

This card features the Lots of Love Letterpress plate that can be found on page 217 of the big catalog.  The item # is 120983 and it is on sale during the Online Extravaganza for only $3.98!!

Here is the way to use the letter press plates.  First, ink up the plate with Craft ink (that's the pigment-based inks that are darker and more opaque than the regular dye-based pads we use for stamping cards).  Then you place a piece of watercolor paper on top of the inked plate and run it through the Big Shot.  What you end up with is a beautiful debossed image.  For this card I used Cherry Cobbler and then cut the image apart to make four panels, which are layered on top of  Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso panels.  Some Cherry Cobbler seam binding (p. 195) and a flower accented with an Antique Brad (p. 198) add a nice accent.  What a perfect card for a Christmas wedding or for Valentine's Day!  For the exact "sandwich" for the Big Shot, please see page 217 of the big catalog.  At the bottom of the page you'll see a little box that says "How to build a Letterpress sandwich."

That's it for today, stampers, as I've got lots to do for Thanksgiving.  My daughter and family are arriving from Seattle on Wednesday and Tuesday is my regular baby-sitting day, so blogging this week will be hit and miss, probably mostly "miss."  I hope you won't notice, as you'll be just as busy as I am with Thanksgiving preparations.  Thanks for stopping by today, and I'll look forward to getting back to a regular blogging schedule after Thanksgiving is over. 
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
