Shipping changes & New Weekly Candy

Welcome back to Stamp and Create!

We had lots of new items arrive last week.
Make sure to check out the links at the end of the post.

Shipping increase from the Post office:
Effective today, the US Post Office has increased their prices. I am not sure how it will affect our prices here at Stamp and Create yet. I don't anticipate much affect for domestic orders (within the US).
Therefore, I have not adjusted the prices for US orders yet - or if I will at all.
However, it will greatly affect International Orders - especially for large orders that I would normally use Priority Mail. Until I can determine how much it will affect orders, I have removed free shipping for International Orders. 

If you are an International customer with a history of orders with Stamp and Create and would like to place an order that would normally have qualified for free shipping (over $200), please contact me  at and we can discuss shipping options. If the order is for non-sale items, I may be able accommodate free shipping - however if the order includes all Sale items, I may not be able to afford to offer free shipping as well (make sense)?

On to the Weekly Candy...

And now the wonderful Design Team have some cards to share for your inspiration...

Used the new "Tilda with Love cake" by Magnolia.

Jeanette has used Rose's Bike Ride from Whimsy Stamps' Wee Stamp Collection. Many of these stamps have been restocked so if there was one that you had wanted but it was out of stock, go have a wee peek, it might be available now! The image was colored with Copic Markers. To add some embellishment she airbrushed a Prima Rose to match the image and tied a bow to the top using Wrinkled White ribbon.

 Mae used Tilda Blowing Hearts, New York, Postcard stamps all from Magnolia's With Love Collection.  She also used Magnolia DooHickeys: Bloomy Tag and Doily Flowers. A cute little heart charm was added to the tag.

Just for You from Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamps (also available as a digi), papers from Lost & Found 3 Ruby and Love Note along with Black Gray Mini Roses, and pearls.

Rene used Swiss Pixie Sisters C.C. Designs,  Tigerlilly paper pad from Kaisercraft, MME Miss Caroline Howdy Doody, Whiff of Joy Cute Banners Trio

The theme over on Stamp and Create this month is love, so Vicky has created this card to illustrate some of the new stock that is in, the stamps are Magnolia's Venice and Tilda with Dot Bow. The paper is new in stock too and is Love Note by Fancy Pants.
