Created with My Digital Studio

Woooo hooooo!  The Holiday Mini catalog debuted on Sep 1! How would you like to host a Girls Night Out stamping party with your friends and family and get the opportunity to share why you love Stampin’ Up!?!  I’m kicking off a Hostess contest with a great incentive for you to do just that!!!  You can earn hostess benefits of $25 in free merchandise on just a $150 minimum workshop total and be entered in my contest!  The winner will get a $75 Stampin’ Up! shopping spree in December…just in time for holiday gift-giving… what could be better?!  As a workshop hostess with me, you’ll get a free Idea Book and Catalog, choose a free stamp set from my Hostess basket and get a free class as I show you and your friends some awesome projects and you get to create 2 beautiful projects together . Wouldn’t you and your friends like to create cards like the ones below?

This card features the beautiful Sunflower background stamp (#123606; $17.97…and worth every penny!). To create this card I started with More Mustard card stock as the base. I topped it with a piece of So Saffron on which I stamped the sunflower image. To get this look, I inked the entire sunflower with my So Saffron Classic Stampin’ Pad. Then, I used my More Mustard Stampin’ Write Marker to color the petals…that’s what gives it the variation in color. The center of the flower is colored with my Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Marker…I literally scribbled with my marker and then pounced to create the shown effect. I LOVE it…hope you do, too. To ramp it up a little I added So Saffron Taffeta ribbon (which I got through a ribbon swap…stay tuned…I’ve got a ribbon share coming up for you!). Last, but certainly not least, I used Chocolate Chip to ink up my new favorite sentiment set — Perfectly Penned (#122890, W, $16.95; #122892, C, $12.95) — which I got for FREE at Convention as a Leadership gift. WooHoo! I LOVE FREE! I punched out the sentiment with my handy-dandy Decorative Label Punch, sponged the edges with some more Chocolate Chip and popped it up with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals! Do you love it or what?

This pretty little card was inspired by one created by another demonstrator — Sorry! I don’t remember who! If it’s yours, let me know and I’ll give you credit! I started with the gorgeous new In-Color, Pool Party. The Designer Series Paper is Spice Cake, and is in the new Holiday Mini Catalog. The color combo in this paper is to-die-for — Pool Party, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard, River Rock and Very Vanilla. Using my Bird Builder Punch, I punched my little birds from one piece of DSP — one side became the birds’ bodies and the other side became the wings. I popped up the wings with a Dimensional beneath each one, and I popped up each bird in the same way. Finished off the card with a sentiment from Blessings from Heaven, inked with Soft Suede. Even my husband said, “Ooh, that’s pretty!” when he saw this card!

If you’d like to get together with girlfriends and make some gorgeous cards and have a ton of fun doing it, contact me so we can get your workshop scheduled!  With the holidays right around the corner the time is right to get started on your holiday crafting now!

Until we meet again…HAPPY STAMPIN!
