New Product

Advance notice of the first November offer you can purchase from tomorrow.

Stitched Shaped Framelits are coming in a future catalogue but we are going to be able to buy them in November to have a play with them already.

The set contains 12 dies which includes four circles, ovals and squares.

You can hopefully see in the image that they aren't for actual stitching through but give a really nice effect to the shapes for that 'little something' you sometimes need.

These sets are going to be available for £27.

Tomorrow I'll share the stamp sets that are already in the catalogue that fit just nicely in these shapes - for November they have 25% off so there are some great savings if its a set on your list.

Merry Christmouse!

Keep your eyes peeled this week for new products and some special offers!

I get to see the next seasonal catalogue next weekend which is very scary!

While we are still building up to Christmas though what about the Merry Mice set?

Some rather fun sentiments and cute mice ideal for colouring for just £15 for the clear stamp set.

Cookie Cutter Christmas

We had a good party last night hosted by Andrea with 11 ladies.

I did a make and take with the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, matching punch and Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.

I gave the ladies the choice of which of the characters from the set to put on the card from the gingerbread man, santa, eskimo and reindeer.  The characters are mounted on a 1 3/4 punched circle which is layered on one of the Layering Circle Framelits.

The card, paper, ink and marker colours are mainly Crumb Cake and Real Red.

The sentiment is from Snow Place and the card is finished with Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine.

Sweet Home Bundle

I haven't had chance to play with my new Home Sweet Home bundle yet but Stampin' Up! have some lovely samples.

There are so many different things to do with this set - the house front looks equally at 'home' on a card but they do make super little 3D items.

The stamp set has 25 photopolymer stamps, the thinlits pack contains 22 dies.  Together they are available for £48.50 as a bundle, saving 10% on the cost of buying them individually.

Hopefully I can play with my set soon.

Don't forget the 6x6" paper offer or if there is anything else you need let me know asap for the next order.

Foxy Birthday

Another quick break from Christmas for a Foxy Friends card.

I've used the matching paper stack and punch for this cute chappie too.
The stamps are all in the Foxy Friends set which as 29 stamps in it.

The sentiment and banner are in Thoughtful Banners (with matching punch also).

I've also used a couple of the Circle Layering Framelits and finished with some matching Calypso Coral enamel Shapes.

Christmas Stockings

What about another Christmas bundle?

This is the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and co-ordinating Christmas Stockings thinlits dies.

This card from the Stampin' Up! catalogue has also made clever use of the 'window' from the Hearth & home thinlits.

There are 19 photopolymer stamps in the set for £19 (great value) and 17 dies which are £27 on their own.  Buy both together for £41.25.

Sugarplum Florals

A card similar to one posted before but maybe a different colour way and a reminder of the lovely Detailed Floral Thinlits.

Colours used are Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry with ruched ribbon and sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set (with matching thinlits).

Santa's Sleigh

I finally got a play with my Santa's Sleigh Bundle:

This card was based on another Pinterest card using 2 different embossing folders for the background.

All stamps and dies are from the bundle - except the red berries on the wreath for which I used the smallest circle from the owl punch!

It's a great set and something a bit different - the bundle is £41.25 for 15 photopolymer stamps and 12 thinlit dies.

Celebrate with Cake

Stamp set of the day today is 'Party with Cake' with some of the Pop of Pink DSP.

I've used Black and Melon Mambo ink and card and finished with some Metallic Enamel Shapes and a little Baker's Twine.

Oh, what paper fun

A similar idea but using a different layout and paper today:

This card is great for using up scraps and also for giving a taster of most of the designs of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper - a super pack featuring the colours Crumb Cake, Real Red and Early Espresso.

The sentiment is from the set 'Oh' What Fun' and finished with a couple of enamel dots.

Blooms & Bliss paper profile

Fingers crossed some sort of normal service can be resumed.
I'll try and catch up in the next couple of days with any projects that will of been missed on here.

This card highlights some of the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper and the Triple Banner Punch.

It's mounted on some Blushing Bride card (then thick Whisper White) and finished with some Rich Razzleberry ribbon from the winter catalogue.

Sentiment from Sprinkles of Life and punched out of course!

Needless to say this is one of the packs of paper that is on offer this month - buy 3 of the 12x12" packs included in the offer and get a 4th pack of your choice for free!

So, it turns out Apple aren't supporting the Blogger App on the devices I thought I'd use for a few days to try and keep you updated!
That's why it was being so problematic and I think that's rather a shame.

I'm not having much joy with a picture today so promise to return at the end of the week with more updates.

If you are Facebook enabled JillStampsUp is being updated daily on there.
Back soon!

Sorry Mr Blogger has not been playing ball for me.

Today I've used the stamp sets Layering Love and Playful Backgrounds.

I've also used a rather zingy colour combo of Tangerine
Tango, Pool Party and Crushed Curry.

Welcome to baby Ray

As I needed to make another baby card I thought I'd better try a different design to the last two!  Although I did still have to feature Baby Bear of course.

I've stamped the Bear in Mint Macaron, Cucumber Crush and Emerald Envy and then used these colours in the Designer Series Paper and ink to decorate a Z-fold card.  The stamp set used is Something for Baby.

The large letters feature again and some little hearts from the border punch.
You can see the card open below with little Ray having a nap in his busy day!

Ok, the offers are here!

Firstly to celebrate World Card Making Day Stampin' Up! are offering you the chance to stock up on some essentials.  Please note that these first offers are only available for the first 5 days of October:

Secondly - and available ALL month is the Designer Series Paper sale.
8 packs of paper are in the offer which is if you buy 3 packs you can have a further pack for free.

I am willing to look at splitting packs if anyone wants to share with a friend or other people that get in touch with me.
If you fancy just half a pack of everything or want just a 6x6" piece of each paper across several packs (thereby having a 'taster' but without the full outlay and ideal for cards if you aren't a scrapbooker) then get in touch.

Later in the month I might add some specific offers to the page.

Let me know if you are interested in any of these offers and remember the top ones are only available 1st to 5th October.
