December Blog Hop

We are so excited!  This Blog Hop is the perfect way to introduce the new Stamp Shoppe DT, show off our new blog and our new gallery.  If you are familiar with twitter, you can always get yourself setup to get our “tweets” too!

Anyhow, the holidays are going to be here before you know it and so we decided that this Blog Hop Challenge will be to create some Christmas cards and/or projects that you can still get done in time for the holidays.

Interested????  Well, follow the link to our NEW BLOG and once you get there you will have all the blog hop info plus a link to our new CARD GALLERY.

Upcoming Blog Hop!!

Ho Ho Ho!!!!  Does everyone have their Christmas cards done and/or mailed?  If you are anything like me then you might be rushing to get those cards made and sent in time for Christmas.  And even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, there are other holidays and festivities happening this month that we need to get ready for.  And what better way to get motivated to create cards then a blog hop with some yummy prizes???  The new DT will have an opportunity to show you their stuff and we will be revealing the new Stamp Shoppe blog and card gallery on December 1st and have decided that the best way to do that will be with some fun challenges and prizes.  So keep checking back in!

Also, I received some of the So Snowy stamps and there are still some of those cute snowmen in stock and if orders are received today they will be mailed tomorrow.  For most people that means having the stamps in by Friday…..

Here is a card I made using some of the older stamps from the Magnolia 2008 lines:  Tilda with Wreath and Winter Fence and some of the new Magnolia patterned paper from the So Jolly line.

Thanks for stopping by,

Our new DT

Wow,  we got applications from across Canada and it was so exciting to see the different styles of each designer. I wanted to thank every one who applied, I tried to respond to each application once I received it.  I did want to say that the work we received was beautiful but in the end we could only pick two and so without further adieu I would like to introduce you to our new DT…

First DT Call

Welcome to my first DT call!  I would like to start by saying THANK YOU to Carla Peicheff who accepted my offer to head up the DT.  She is one busy lady and I am so lucky to have her.

First, I would like to give you a little information about Stamp Shoppe.  It is my new online store based in Canada that specializes in Magnolia Rubber Stamps.  I just opened in July of this year and I am focusing on great customer service and fast shipping.  I am a very small business but it is my goal to carry a wide selection of Magnolia stamps at competitive pricing and service.

That being said, I am looking for up to two more ladies (or gentlemen) who have a passion for Magnolia stamps and/or cardmaking.  You must have an active blog and the ability to take and post good quality photographs of your work.  Stamp Shoppe is a Canadian store and so for the time being the DT call is only open to people residing in Canada.  This call is for a 3 month term, from 15 November 2009 – 15 February 2010.

What I would expect from a DT member:

  • At least 6 cards/ projects per month to be posted on your blog, the Stamp Shoppe Gallery (once I have it up), The Stamp Shoppe Blog and on any other stamping boards where you are active. The blog posts must contain information on what was used to create the project with links back to the store to help people find the products;
  • Participate in and promote blog challenges, and events sponsored by the store;
  • Actively promote Stamp Shoppe on your blog and in other places when it is appropriate to do so;
  • Post one tutorial on the Stamp Shoppe blog during your term; and
  • Participate in other challenge blogs (i.e. Just Magnolia, Friday Sketchers etc) when able to do so.

What you can expect from me:

  • Minimum two Magnolia stamps a month (and some months may include embellishments, papers etc, as well)
  • A selection of stamped images monthly (on Neenah cardstock using Memento)
  • An additional 15% off purchases from the Stamp Shoppe Store
  • A cute design team button for your blog and for use in signature blocks
  • A link to your blog on both the Stamp Shoppe blog and store site.
  • To promote your blog sites whenever I can

If you are interested in applying please submit the following requirements in an email to stampshoppe@bell.net by November 13th at midnight EST.  Submissions received after this time will not be considered.

  1. Your name, mailing address, phone number and email address
  2. A brief bio of yourself and why you are applying for the DT.
  3. A link to your blog
  4. A link to an online gallery showing your work (if you have one)
  5. A minimum of two new cards created for this DT call.  Cards must show off your style(s) and at least one should show good use of ribbon and/or lace with flowers.  Cards must contain a coloured Magnolia image.  If you do not own any Magnolia images then please note that in your submission and use any stamped image which you have coloured yourself.  We request that card submissions not be posted in your gallery/blogs until after the DT announcements are made.

The new DT will be contacted on Nov 14th and once we receive confirmations, will be announced publicly on the 15th.

So Spooky

Newest Magnolia Line

Newest Magnolia Line

Just a quick post to let you know that I have some of the stamps from the newest Magnolia release, So Spooky, posted on the store website.  I will not be doing official pre-orders, but I will be taking names and a list of the images you want so that I (1) Have a firm idea of how many I need to order (2) Can set them aside once the order comes in.  My plan is to place the order by Monday so that potentially I could have the stamps in before Halloween.  That being said, the manufacturer can be *very* slow when it comes to shipping product.

I have posted some of the other images here on the blog site but unless there is enough interest I will not be ordering them.  I am required to buy a minimum of 6 stamps per image and I am just not a big enough store to buy and hold that amount of stock.  There are more sentiments but I didn’t want to post them all so if you are really interested in sentiments and quotes then contact me and I will email them to you.

You can see the name of the stamp by letting your mouse hover over the image.

Don’t forget about our September Blog Challenge!

You could win some goodies from the store just by creating a card using a Magnolia image. This month I have three yummy sketches from PageMaps to help inspire you!  Find out more about the challenge (and the rules) HERE.

Featured Stamp

Has anyone ever taken a look at some of the “older” Magnolia stamps?  If you look back at early 2008 (Spring/Summer collection) there is a stamp I love called “Edwin’s Town”.  Now it may not look like much for the $13 it costs but this is a HUGE stamp!  The lovely part is that it can be stamped whole as a large background or cut each house up to use separately.

Supplies:

  • Basic Grey paper (Mellow) and bling
  • Magnolia Edwin’s House (Spring/Summer 2008)
  • Magnolia Tilda Picking Flowers (Chasing Butterflies 2009)
  • Stampin’ Up sentiment
  • American Crafts accents frame
