We had our local stamp club gals over last night.  We did things a little differently.  With the release of the Stamparatus tomorrow, it was important that they knew how differently things are going to be.

We started off with the video that I shared in yesterday’s bark so they know what the Stamparatus is and how it works.

Stampin’ Up! doesn’t want backorders!  They want everyone to get their Stamparatus, but they can only make so many at a time.  And they’re offering it to the demonstrators at the same time that they’re offering it to you.

It’s going to be a busy day tomorrow!

Tomorrow at 2pm Stampin’ Up! Time (Mountain Time) – 1pm Pawcific – 3pm Central – 4pm Eastern, you can order yours.  It’s going to be a wild rush to the computers to reserve your Stamparatus.

I’ll post exact instructions and the link to the reservation area tomorrow morning so we’ll have the best, most up-to-date information.  (Or you can do like the gals did last night and let Ann do it for you (but you’ll have to give her your information).

Just know that your credit card won’t be charged until the end of January when your Stamparatus is shipped.

About Last Night

We did a couple cards with the Stampin’ Blends.  The first one was using Shimmery White Card Stock.  Then Ann shared some of her swaps from the Stampin’ Up! On Stage event.

Then they made this one using the new Stampin’ Blends on Thick Whisper White Card Stock.

Wine Birthday Card

This card is what Ann remembers of a swap that she saw one of her friends get at the 2017 On Stage event.

But of course, we added a little fun to it after everyone left.  We colored some pearls with the same Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker that we had colored the wine with.

Don’t they look good?

Just so you know – We took these pictures with our Samsung Note 4 phone.  Ann ordered a new camera yesterday.  We should have it next week.  I’m going to have to work extra hard to pay it off.

So if you’d like to try out the Stampin’ Blends and like wine (not necessarily in that order), here is what we used to make this card (although Ann prefers Shimmery White Card Stock for the Blends).
