Paper Pumpkin December Box Misprint
As you anticipate the last kit of 2019, we wanted to make you aware that the product name printed on the side of the box includes a bonus “i”: “Somethiing for Everything.” We apologize for the error. Can you forgive us? And don’t worry: This misspelling is not found anywhere else in the kit.
Also, just a reminder that due to an increased workload in our warehouse during the month of December, Paper Pumpkin billing and shipment (usually from December 11–13) will be delayed until December 14–16. The second billing date (December 20) will remain the same.
Get set for an amazing line-up of fabulous Paper Pumpkin kits in 2020. And best wishes for a Merry Christmas from the Paper Pumpkin team!

How to Get the Look of Purple Posy Ink
We know you miss your Purple Posy ink. We miss it too. But, did you know that there are ways to achieve a look of Purple Posy, without having the actual ink? Try some or all of these ideas!
Stamp on Purple Posy Cardstock (item 150881) using VersaMark Ink (item 102283) to create a tone-on-tone look.
Heat emboss using Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109130) on Purple Posy Cardstock.
Add 6–8 drops of Highland Heather Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (item 147167) to a Stampin’ Spritzer (item 126185), then dilute with rubbing alcohol to reach your desired color. Spritz the mixture onto your project.
Use Highland Heather Classic Stampin’ Ink (item 147103) with a Sponge Brayer (item 141714), Stamping Sponge (item 141337), Aqua Painter (item 103954), or stamped off. These methods look especially great on Purple Posy Cardstock!
Color cling stamps using a Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker (item 150079) before stamping.
Color stamped images using either light or dark Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends (item 149566).
Share these ideas with your stamping communities; we know you will create beautiful things!

Demonstratorship as a Business Entity Policy
When new recruits join Stampin’ Up!, their demonstratorship is considered a sole proprietorship. A sole proprietorship may dissolve upon the demonstrator’s passing. The main advantage of setting up a demonstratorship as a business entity other than sole proprietorship is perpetual existence, meaning that the business may be passed to another person in the event of the demonstrator’s death.
If demonstrators are interested in this opportunity, Stampin’ Up! recommends that they print a copy of this policy for their lawyer or legal representative to review in order to help determine whether taking this step would be advantageous in their situation and to assist in the application process. Stampin’ Up! cannot provide legal advice.
Each year, those who have set up their demonstratorship as a business entity (other than sole proprietorship) must renew with a Notice of Intent form. These forms are due to Stampin’ Up! by December 15. While we can’t provide legal advice, we certainly encourage demonstrators to explore all options available to make the best possible choices for your business and circumstances.
