Holy Toledo, it's NEW CATALOG RELEASE DAY plus a SALE!!!

Ok, it's a lloooooooonnnnngggggg post today. But all the words are important. Don't just scroll down to the card!!

1 - Today is the big day. The new catalog should hit the website around 10AM mountain time. Patience. Patience. Patience.

2- Deal of the Week. Starting today, each week I'll have a different product to offer at a GREAT PRICE. This weeks item is the SCALLOP EDGE PUNCH, on sale for $10.99! The sale begins today at noon mountain time and ends July 6th at 9:50pm mountain time.

3 - As I mentioned today is the new catalog release. That includes the NEW IN-COLORS. Unfortunately, there's a quality problem with the bermuda pads and reinkers. Stampin' Up! has found the problem and the issue is being corrected but for right now, the bermuda ink pad and reinkers are not available.

4 - Because of the new catalog, popular items MAY be briefly backordered. Patience. Patience. Patience.

5 - Because of the new catalog, there may be shipping delays due to volume and July 4the holiday

6 - If you don't see a loved stamp set in the new catalog AND it wasn't on the retired list, check the dormant list. Dormant sets are still available for purchase, they just didn't make the big show (the catalog)!

Ok, a little tutorial before todays card! Punches 101

Typically this is the way to use your punches. This way you can SEE where you're punching (ohh look, a sneak peak for tomorrow's post!!)


Let's look at the scallop punch. I'm not turning this punch over. Notice I'm starting in the middle. I'm practical enough to know that most likely both ends will not be perfect.



Now I've punched the first punch and I begin to slide the punched section over (to my right in the photo). See the silver guide showing through?















Now the silver is gone. I slid the scallop over to match the guide. And now I'll punch again.










Let's flip it over (remember I started in the middle) and get the other side!




Here's one way to use the scallop edge punch (you may remember this old card from a previous class!!).
