Kudos to...ME!

In January I reached a career milestone in sales - $200,000! In addition to a very nice cash bonus from Stampin' Up!, I received a hand stamped (what else?) card from our COO, Rich Jutkins.  I love the card he sent and thought I would share it with you!

Butterflies are Free!

Do you remember the movie "Butterflies are Free?" I know that question dates me but it was a good movie! I thought about that movie when I was making this card. 

Supplies: Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango card stock; Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit & Tangerine Tango Classic Ink, Sycamore Street DSP, Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp set, rhinestones, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Scallop Oval, Large Oval, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" Square Punches.

As Sale-A-Bration 2013 comes to an end next week, I thought I would post at least one project using Sale-A-Bration stuff.  I am going to be doing a Call-A-Thon next week - calling my customers to see if you want to place a Sale-A-Bration order and get FREE product!  Everyone who orders will be put into a drawing for a bag of unused but retired product!  If you contact me with an order before next Tuesday, March 19, you will recieve a gift from me - a set of 3 x 3 cards with a small stamp and an ink spot!

Another Use For Lace Tape

 Don't you love all of the accessories and embellishments in the Spring Catalog?  At Leadership in January, Shelli shared using the Lace Tape (#130966) as a stencil.  And if you're careful, you can remove the tape after sponging ink and re-use it!  The above card was a Hostess Club project and all 13 Club members used the same piece!

Supplies Used: Early Espresso, Primrose Petals, Certainly Celery & Whisper White card stock; Early Espresso, Primrose Petals and Certainly Celery Classic Ink; Lace Tape; Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon; Creative Elements and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets, Large Rhinestone Jewels (#129324)

I stamped the flower image three times and layered the 2 smaller layers with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Welcome to my renovated Blog!

Finally...after months of playing around with different blog headers, I took a deep breath and got on My Digital Studio2 Plus and designed a few headers.  It took a bit to get it to fit but I am happy with it!  I would love your feedback!

I've been busy stamping and wanted to share one of my hostess club projects with you.  This card features one of our single stamps - I'm really tired of cold weather and wanted a project to warm me up!

The Daffodil block was created by actually inking up an acrylic block and stamping it on Whisper White card stock.  I sponged a little Tangerine Tango on the edges and them embossed the image with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  The ribbon is one of the Sale-A-Bration ribbons and the zig-zags on the strips of Daffodil Delight was made using the new Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plat.
