Clearance Rack & Stamping Tip of the Week




Stampin' Up! is launching a new section of the online store called the Clearance Rack. The purpose of the Clearance Rack is to clear out the inventory of surplus items that have been retired. Many of these retired items will be offered at a substantially reduced price.

* All products in the Clearance Rack section are retired, discontinued items. No current products will be sold in the Clearance Rack.

* Clearance Rack items are only available while supplies last. Items will be removed and new items will be posted depending on inventory levels. There is no set time for availability.

*Clearance Rack items will be listed and pictured only in the online store. No list or flyer will be posted.

* All sales of Clearance Rack items are final. No returns or exchanges will be accepted, except in the case of defective product.

To view and order items in the Clearance Rack, go to my Stampin' Up! website: www.denalenneman.stampinup.net and click on "Shop Now" in the upper right hand corner, then click on "Clearance Rack".

Stamping Tip of the Week

When centering layers, line up opposite, diagonal corners. If your layers are cut correctly, they will be perfectly centered every time!

Happy Stamping!

Cards From the 9/26 Stamp-A-Stack


Pretties Flowers (inspired by Phyllis S.)
Everyone made 1 of each of these, using Pretties Kit flowers. The green leaves were dyed with a mixture of Garden Green refill and water, the yellow centers were colored with the Crushed Curry marker- LOVE the In Color Markers!

Sizzix Elegant Bouquet/Butterfly (CASE'd from Cindee W.)
We did these on white or vanilla card stock and the butterflies were done in various colors. The Half Back Pearls (in white or vanilla) are also from the Pretties Kit.
Celebrate Everything
This is a great card for using up scraps! The colors are Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise & Certainly Celery.

Medallion (CASE'd from Penny G.)
Pick 3 ink colors, ink your stamp with the lighest, then use a sponge dauber to add the other 2. We used Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango & Soft Suede. LOVE those In Colors!

Wandering Words from the Holiday Mini (CASE'd from Andrea W.)
This card also uses the Autumn Meadows DSP from the Holiday Mini.
.
Since September 22nd was the 1st official day of Fall, we used some of the great colors for the season. And all of these cards could be used for multiple occasions so they're very "all-purpose".
.
The next Stamp-A-Stack will be in late October- check back for details!

Stamping Tip of the Week

Sorry I'm a day late with this...I have a nasty sinus infection and spent most of yesterday on the couch blowing my nose and sleeping. Here is Tip #3:

It’s not a mistake, it’s a creative opportunity! Card Stock has 2 sides for a reason! You can always flip it over! Just because something doesn’t turn out exactly the way you wanted it to doesn’t mean it’s ruined. See what else you can make from it.

Happy Stamping!

Stamping Tip of the Week

Here's Tip #2, which is related to last week's tip...

To clean your Stampin’ Scrub, take the pads out, rinse them with warm water, then use a drop of dishwashing soap to lather them up and scrub with your fingers. Rinse well, and try to get as much water off as you can, then lay them flat on paper towels or a towel to dry. Some people put them in the top rack of their dishwasher, but mine curled when I tried it so I don't recommend it.

Happy Stamping!

Stamping Tip of the Week

Have you ever had an aha! moment when you're stamping? Figure out a short cut for making a card? Or hear a great piece of advice from a fellow stamper? That's what I love about stamping- every one shares their ideas! I'm going to try and post a Stamping Tip of the Week every Monday. Hopefully these will help you with your stamping!

Here's the first tip I have to share with you...

When you are done stamping, stamp on a piece of scrap paper to remove as much ink as you can, then clean your stamps on a Stampin’ Scrub sprayed with Stampin’ Mist. This will keep your scrub cleaner so you don’t have to clean it as often.

Happy Stamping!
