Border Buddy Saturday! - Quilted Christmas Suite

Hello Stampers - it's Border Buddy Saturday and it's Alison here this week!

Quited Christmas BB 1

Today I'm sharing a card made with the Quilted Christmas Suite of products including the Christmas Quilt Photopolymer Stamp set, the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies and the Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.  Patsy and I just love all these products and have featured it as our November Border Buddy Free Card suite.  When you place an order with either of us in our online store you will receive a FREE Pdf with instructions for 8 cards using the Quilted Christmas Suite.

Quited Christmas BB 3

My card is a step card which folds flat for mailing.  It uses the Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which works perfectly with the paper pierced star on the card - don't you think?

Quited Christmas BB 4

It's not difficult to paper pierce the star shape.  Cut out the outline die from Basic Black and then cut the star out twice - once from the Garden Green patterned Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and one from the Real Red patterned DSP.  Then cut out the star frame.  Glue the Basic Black star to the solid star and glue in the little DSP pieces.

I'm not a quilter but this is the next best thing for me! Here's a collage of the cards included in our Free Card Tutorial this month.

Exciting New Tool - the Stamparatus



For the past two years, Alison (my Border Buddy) and I have been part of a volunteer team of experienced demonstrators who worked closely with Stampin’ Up! to create this amazing positioning tool!  It will be the best one out there when it hits the market.


It will be released in the Annual Catalog coming out in June 2018. 

If you are like me and can’t wait, there will be 3 reservation periods for those that want it early. 

Spots are limited in each reservation so you won't want to wait if you want to get it before the release date in June.

The cost of the Stamparatus tool will be $49 (US).  

The form to reserve yours will be on My Online Store on these dates…

  • November 16–30, 2017 - Shipping Approx. February 1, 2018
  • December 5–30, 2017 - Shipping Approx. March 19, 2018
  • January 15–30, 2018 -Shipping Approx. April 15, 2018

To be ready to reserve one for yourself, you will need to create a Stampin' Up account at my Online Store with a login, if you don’t already have one. You will reserve your tool with a provided CC, however, your cards won’t be charged until your order is finalized (see expected dates above for each window).

Click Here for information how to set up your account. 

  1. When the Stamparatus is ready to ship (see the expected dates above for each window) you will receive an email instructing you to go to your shopping cart and finalize your order.
  2. In February & March shipping months you will also earn a Free Sale-a-bration item and you will be promoted at that time to add your selection.

Click Here to visit my Online Store during the dates above and fill out your reservation form.
