Welcome to the 2017 Hanukkah Blog Hop from the Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Jewish Themed Blog Hoppers Facebook Group! We're delighted to show our customers how to make cards to celebrate Jewish holidays using current Stampin' Up! products.
This year SU! included a menorah/hanukkiah in the Seasonal Lanterns set. For those who don't know it, here is a great explanation of the menorah and the story of Hanukah.
I like that the candles and flames are separate stamps, so that it's easy to use different colors for each part. For this card I stamped the menorah in VersaMark and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. I then inked the candles in VersaMark and then Marina Mist ink before stamping, then embossing with Clear Embossing Powder. Finally the candle flames were inked in VersaMark and Crushed Curry ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.
I did all the embossing because I wanted to add color for the table the menorah is sitting on and the wall behind it. I did this by masking the bottom of the menorah with a sticky note and rolling So Saffron ink on with a sponge brayer. Then I moved the sticky note to cover the So Saffron ink and added Marina Mist ink with a clean sponge brayer. I then wiped any excess ink off the embossed menorah, which resisted the brayered ink.
As is traditional, I have placed my menorah in a window, which I made with the Hearth & Home Thinlits (I cut out the vertical munton). The window is set in a wood-sided wall, made with the Hardwood stamp inked in Smokey Slate and stamped on Whisper White. For a little more twinkle I wrapped a strand of Black and Silver Mini Sequin Trim around the Smokey Slate card base and tied them together.
The Happy Hanukkah and Twinkle and Glow sentiments are both from the Seasonal Lantern set. I stamped both in Archival Basic Black on Silver Foil Paper and cut out the front one with the window box framelit Hearth & Home Thinlits, and the inside one with a now-retired Project Life framelit.

Today I thought I'd share some information on mailing for the holidays. Forewarned is forearmed, and all that...

I opened up my blogging site today and realized it's been SIX WEEKS since I've blogged! I have been super-busy with 4 stamping events and 2 out-of-town trips in that time, so maybe I've earned a pass??
Last week I spent 4 days in Salt Lake City attending OnStage Live, Stampin' Up!'s twice-a-year convention for demonstrators. We got a wonderful update on the company, which is doing great in all of its markets. Did you know that Stampin' Up! does business in all these countries? USA, Canada, UK, France, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, New Zealand, Australia and Japan!
We also got a preview of the upcoming Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure that go live on January 3, 2018. This catalog is chock-full of fun new products, and I'm excited to share them with you over the next few months. In the meantime, click on the button below to see all the photos I took of presentations and samples created by SU! staff and other demonstrators. There are also a few pictures of swap cards made with current products. These are quick-and-dirty snapshots of display cases, display boards, or the large screens in the Main Stage. I hope they will give you a feel for the new products, and that you will be able to zoom in to see more detail if you like.
The other big deal at OnStage is recognizing the achievements of SU! demonstrators. I was happy to be able to walk across the stage with two of my friends, Heather and Sarah and celebrate our Silver Elite status and Leadership achievements.

I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
