Card Recipe:Polka Dot Pieces

Hello! Thank you for joining me. 
I want to remind you that Stampin' Up has free shipping through the 10th. If you want something, now is the perfect time to shop
Today I am bringing you a card recipe for a sweet & simple card that you can CASE- Create And Share Everything!   This card needs:

Polka - Dot Pieces p 139 $15.95
Chalk Talk p 11 $18.95
Ink: Strawberry Slush & Coastal Cabana
Paper: Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe & Coastal Cabana

I cut a piece of whisper white paper to fit in the center of the card and the pistachio pudding mat slightly larger. I stamped the smaller flower in strawberry slush in the near center, high. I then stamped 'thoughts of you bring smiles' in Coastal Cabana beneath the flower. I stamped two more flowers off the paper in Coastal Cabana.
On a piece of scrap whisper white, I stamped 'For you' from chalk talk and punched it with 1 3/8 circle punch. I made a banner (with another piece of scrap paper) out of coastal cabana.   

What do you think?  Let me know!

Why become a stampin' up DEMO?


Today I'm going to talk about why I became a stampin' up! demo. The first reason is 20% discount on stampin' up! products. I absolutely love buying stampin' up stuff and I don't like mailing in my paycheck to the company. By becoming a demo, I earn instant income from every sale that I make. Its really cool because this is the only money that I spend on stampin' up!

The second thing that I love about being a demo is stampin' start. It is a way of helping new demonstrators start out with stampin' up!  You earn a stamp set for meeting sales requirements & for recruiting new demonstrators within your first six months of being a demonstrator. This is what I earned when I first joined!

 If you are interested in knowing more about being a demonstrator, let me know!

Perfect Pennants - Life doesn't have to be perfect

Hello, thank you for reading today.  I want to share with you one of the stamp sets that in my opinion, is very inspirational. The stamp sets that are featured are Perfect Pennants ( Annual Catalog 16) and Petite Petals ( Annual Catalog 125)

This stamp set (pictured below) 

has great versatility. It is perfect for guy cards with the Star, Make a Wish and the two background stamps. The star can be used for a military appreciation card. However, I chose to make a very girly card. 

Card Recipe

Stamp Sets
Perfect Pennants (AC p 16)
Petite Petals (AC p 125)

All Abloom Paper stack (AC p 185)
Pool Party
Whisper White

Ink Pads:
Strawberry Slush
Pool Party 
Coastal Cabana 

 Rhinestone Basic Jewels (AC p 209)
Petite Petals Punch (AC 219)

To create the card, cut a whisper white square. 3/4 of the way from the bottom, stamp 'Life doesn't have to be perfect..' sentiment.  Using a whisper white sheet, stamp three flowers with the Petite Petals in Strawberry Slush, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana. Punch these out with the coordinating Petite Petals Punch.  Adhere Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of each flower.  Cut a banner out of the All Abloom paper stack.
Assemble the card by adhering the sentiment sheet with snail. Adhere the All Abloom banner with snail to the right corner of the sentiment.  Place the petite petals in a cluster of three near the sentiment- I chose the left corner to balance the banner. You can make a coordinating envelope with a few more petite petals stamp and punching a few flowers from the All Abloom DSP stack. 

The perfect pennants also has a coordinating product if you have a Big Shot! Banners Framelits (p 231) fit the sentiments perfectly. I only just now bought the framelits (after 5 months of having the set, I know, I'm a slacker :P ) Be sure to check back to see this set with the Banners Framelits!
