Update on the Woodlands TIEF

The Woodlands TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder) has been a huge hit from the holiday catalog – there are projects all over the blogosphere and Pinterest like this:

The news from Stampin’ Up! this morning is that this great product is currently on back-order.  It was also announced earlier this week that the Woodlands TIEF will retire at the end of the Holiday catalog or when supplies are exhausted.

Here’s the back-order status as of yesterday, November 18th:

  • There are 7,088 on back-order
  • 2,304 are expected on November 30
  • 9,792 are expected on December 7
Can you do the math?  Even with new math (front end estimating nearly pushed me over the ledge) I can see that this product may sell out.  Stampin’ Up! has not made a statement about how many additional units may or may not be ordered.
If you think you might EVER want to own the Woodlands TIEF, I strongly suggest you go HERE and place your order now – product 139673 for $8.50.

RemARKable Holidays

Welcome to the November RemARKable Blog tour.  We’re featuring Holiday Bundles this month, and I know the other artists on the tour will have great inspiration for you.

For my part, I have two simple cards that could be produced in quantity – and since it’s nearly mid-November, simple is a plus!  First up is the Jingle All the Way Bundle:

Maui Stamper Dazzling Sleigh Ride Ornament

  • Stamps:  Jingle All the Way
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Night of Navy
  • Accessories:  2 1/2″ Circle Punch, Watercolor paper, Night of Navy Ink Refill, White Craft Ink, Big Shot, Sleigh Ride Edgelit dies, Delicate Ornament Thinlit dies, Softly Falling TIEF, Precision Base Plate, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, Silver Cord, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Maui Stamper Dazzling Sleigh Ride Ornament

The ornament concept isn’t my original idea – it’s all over Pinterest – but this combination is mine.  Using the watercolor paper with the ink refill allows more depth and variety in the Night of Navy background.

My second bundled project features the Peaceful Pines bundle:

Maui Stamper Perfect Pines Holiday Catalog CASE

  • Stamps:  Peaceful Pines
  • Color Palette:  Very Vanilla, Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Mossy Meadow
  • Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Pines Framelits, Lucky Stars TIEF, Home for Christmas DSP, Gold Foil Sheets, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Maui Stamper Perfect Pines Holiday Catalog CASE

If you take a look at page 16 of the Holiday Catalog, you’ll see the inspiration for this card.  Since my first card used a watercolor technique, I chose to use Designer Series Paper (DSP) for this one.

I hope you’re inspired – and I’m sure there is more inspiration coming your way.  The tour links are featured at the end of the blog, but if you click on the image below you’ll be off to see Heather Mathieson!  Thanks for your visit.
