What is Simply Shammy and what do you do with it? Simply Shammy is one of the Stamp Cleaning Tools from Stampin’ Up! You just use water to keep it moist and clean your stamps. Unlike other Stamp Cleaning products, it will not transfer color to your Photopolymer stamps. I love it! It is easy to use. You just have to remember to let it air out overnight every couple of days. Watch this video to see how easy it is to use.
TIPS: ~Ink will stain your Simply Shammy, but will not transfer to your stamps. If you ink up a stamp and clean it without stamping, the ink may transfer to other stamps or your fingers/hands.
~Clean with water every day at either the start of the day or the end of the day to help it stay moist and clean any thick ink residue from the Shammy.
~You can store your Simply Shammy in a Clear-Mount Stamp Case or a quart Ziplock Bag.
~Leave your Storage stamp case or Ziplock Bag open overnight to prevent mildew and funny smells.
~Your Shammy may get hard when you leave it to dry out. You can soften it up by running it under the tap, or put it in a container with water and let it soak for a bit.
OnStage in Orlando was really fun! I stayed with 6 women I had never met before and they were all really nice. We had fun hanging out together!
The weather in Orlando was warm and humid outside. Inside was cold and I only brought sandals so my toes were cold all day. I also took Lyft several times and even once by myself. This was a totally new experience for me. The drivers were all very nice.
I traded my 50 swaps in less than 30 minutes before the first session started. I received some wonderful cards and 3D items in return.
I was able to walk across the stage to celebrate 10 years of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I even had a photo with Sara Douglas, CEO of Stampin’ Up! Sara has straight hair. I have curly hair.
There was lots of business training which included working with different types of Stampers.
~Are you a beginning Stamper?
~Or do you have a few supplies, but are busy so you like quick and easy cards and projects?
~Or do you have lots of supplies and enjoy more complex cards and projects and craft at least several times a week?
There were Product Demonstrations using NEW products from the upcoming Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure. There are SO many wonderful NEW products coming!! You can start ordering them on December 5th if you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator or if you join my team then.
Starting December 5th you can order a Stamparatus Bag to hold your Stamparatus.
~You can order just the Stamparatus Bag for $29 #149695
~Order the Stamparatus AND the Bag for $78 #151961
If you join my Team between now and during Sale-a-bration you can choose to get a Craft & Carry Tote to carry your supplies when crafting away from home. Email me if you have questions or want more details.
These are the cards I used for my Swaps (Cards to Trade with others) at OnStage last week. They are all the same layout. They just use different Designer Series Papers (DSP) and coordinating cardstock. I pre-cut the cardstock and the 3″ x 4-1/4″ DSP. In just an hour my three friends cut the DSP diagonally and assembled the cards. I punched, then stamped the sentiments using my Stamparatus so I could stamp two sentiments at once with different colors of ink. We were surprised at how quickly the cards were finished. I will put the paper and ink information under each photo. Nature’s Poem DSP #146338, Powder Pink card base, Blackberry Bliss card front, and ink, Under the Mistletoe DSP #146921, Early Espresso card base, Shaded Spruce card front, and ink.
SUPPLIES: Stamps: Happy Birthday Gorgeous Photopolymer #
Eastern Beauty Photopolymer # Cardstock and Designer Series Papers of your choice or as listed above
Coordinating ink of your choice or as listed above Punch: Everyday Label # Adhesives: Tombow Glue
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Papers.
~card base at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”. Score and fold at 4-1/4”.
~card front at 4” x 5-1/4”.
~DSP layer at 3” X 4-1/4” Cut diagonally by lining up opposite corners with the cutting groove on your Paper Trimmer. 2. Attach your diagonally cut DSP to your card front trying to keep the borders of both DSP pieces so the card front borders are about the same. 3. Attach your card front to your card base. 4. Label.

TIPS: 1. Fill your Stampin’ Spritzer with Water. 2. Only give 4-5 spritzes with your Stampin’ Spritzer. 3. Use a Stampin’ Spritzer rather than a normal spray bottle. The Spray Bottle will get the cardstock too wet making it curl as it drys. This will also make it harder lay flat when you attach it to your card.
