STAMPARATUS Reservation Questions ~

Q: How do I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: Normally - you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store; but in this case, you will click the RESERVE link on the Stamparatus page which will take you to the reservation page. This will be available on the 16th.  For step-by-step instructions, please see the images below.

Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship?
A: We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.

Q: Am I billed at the time I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: No. However, a credit card is required to reserve the product.

Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?
A: No. However, once your reservation is transferred to your shopping cart, you will then be able to add other items to your order. Important note: Please do not delete the Stamparatus from your order. We will not be able to add it back and you will lose your reservation.

Never Enough Birthday cards....

Sharing a cute and quick card we made at my September cards class.  Seems I NEVER have enough birthday cards - so I love when they are featured at one of my classes, and I make up a few extras.  This card is made with Balloon Celebration - we used Calypso Coral, Wild Wasabi and Rich Razzleberry - although for this card - just about any color combo would work.
Measurements: card base 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" folded horizontal; Coral layer 5 1/4" x 4"; White layer 5 x 3 3/4"; Razzleberry layer 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" and top white layer 4 1/2" x 3 1/4".  The Razzleberry layer is popped up on dimensionals to give the card a little bit of character.  Added a couple gems for some sparkle, and a little Coral bow too.
Then finished the inside with this cute little balloon.
This set is a wonderful set for some quick and easy cards - sure to put a smile on anyone's face.  Thanks for stopping by.  ~Maureen
