Holiday Catalog Product Availability

Hello stamping friends!

I wanted to share with you some information that the Stampin’ Up! home office just shared with all demonstrators regarding some Holiday Catalog Merchandise, so that’ you’d be aware and could plan accordingly.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog 2018, Stampin' Studio

From Stampin’ Up!

There is always a risk of products selling out without enough time to reorder and restock inventory before a catalog lifecycle is over. When this does happen, it is usually caused by a higher-than-forecasted demand. However, as we upgraded our inventory management system, there were system communication issues with the current holiday catalog and we have just determined that several products are at high risk of early depletion.

We want to share the list of products with you now so you can plan accordingly for the coming weeks. We have also indicated with an asterisk which of these products will carry over into a future catalog. Although we don’t normally share this information so early, we feel it will be useful as you update your plans for the remainder of this catalog.

These products are running low due to the identified system communication problem. (This list does not include items already shown in the Back ordered section of the Inventory Status Report or items listed in the current update posted on November 13.)

  • SNOWFLAKES & STARS WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147819)
  • SANTA’S SIGNPOST FRAMELITS DIES (item 147911)

We don’t know when these products will go out of stock, but it’s possible some may run out as early as next week. Watch the Inventory Status Report for inventory information on these and other products.

This information may create an even higher demand on many of these items, but we feel it’s better to let you know now so you can adapt your plans. Also, even though the upcoming Online Extravaganza sale does not apply to holiday catalog products, it is possible the promotion will have an effect on inventory depletion (as additional non-sale items are often added to promotion orders).

We are working to fix the system communication errors to avoid similar problems in the future. Thank you for your patience.

If you’re interested in getting any of these items before there gone, you can order them by clicking on the photos below.  Also in regards to the comment about the Online Extravaganza, it is coming next week! Deals start November 23 (Black Friday) through November 28. We won’t know anything more about this until November 20.

Retro Christmas with the Snow is Glistening stamp set

I generally tend to go with shades of red and green for Christmas cards, but something about the Christmas tree in the Snow is Glistening stamp set made me think retro and this is the card I came up with.

Stampin' Up! Snow is Glistening stamp set, Snowflake Trinkets, Stampin' Studio

Today’s Color Combo

 I created this z-fold card by starting out with a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock which I scored at 4-1/4″ from one end and 2-1/8″ from the other.  The front flap is a 2-1/2″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White layered on a 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Bermuda Bay.  I stamped the tree in Lemon Lime Twist and cut it out by hand before sponging the edges of the tree with more Lemon Lime Twist.  Next I added small strips of ribbon to give it a cohesive look, then I popped this off the front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The “ornaments” on the tree are Pearl Jewels that I colored with the blunt end of the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends.  I also colored the rhinestone in the center of the Snowflake Trinket that adorns the top of the tree.  I attached it with a glue dot.  The pretty sentiment and the snowflakes on the inside panel are also from the Snow is Glistening stamp set.

Happiness Surrounds & Snowfall Thinlits

This month, and only while supplies last, Stampin’ Up! has come out with an exclusive group of products they call the Snowflake Showcase.  I wanted to share some fun cards I made with the different items in this limited offering. 

Stampin' Up! Happiness Surrounds stamp set, Snowfall Thinlits, Stampin' Studio

While the name Snowflake Showcase makes you think of winter, rest assured that you can do so much more than create Holiday or Winter-y cards.  I’ve used the Happiness Surrounds stamp set in the suite along with the Snowfall Thinlits to create this fresh and light friendship card.  

Today’s Color Combo

I stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green after stamping off once for each leaf.  Next I added the Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon and some die cut leaves in Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, and Mango Melody.  The flower was stamped with two different images from the Happiness Surrounds stamp set before cutting it out with the Snowfall Thinlits.  This layer was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Next is the delicately detailed six petaled flower in Highland Heather finished off with another popped up stamped flower and a Rhinestone Jewel.  All of this is attached to a layer of Mango Melody and a Whisper White card base.  So, what do you think?  Are you surprised that product that is named Snowflake showcase can result in such a springtime looking card?

Everyone is LOVING the products in the Snowflake Showcase so much that the Whisper White Velvet Paper has already sold out.  All items are available through November 30th or when the supply of product runs out (which ever happens first).  You don’t want to miss out on owning the rest of the items in this offering, so check out all of the products below.  Just click the photos and you’ll be directed to my online store where you can place your order.
