10 year celebration

Truly in stampin up style, I was sent this beautiful card from The Main office in Alberta Canada.  How simple this gesture  can put a huge smile on my face, to be recognized with a handmade card from Stampin up!'s  canadian office.  This simple card has made me reflect on my adventures as a demonstrator for Stampin'up!  I have achieved all levels:  Join for the discount,  I wanted all my products at a discount price.  I was my best customer…. I fell in love with the products, the quality, the choice, the vibrant colors, those awesome stamps and huge ink pads…lol It was love at first site.  Then, I wanted to introduce the products to my close friends, to make cards and preserve their memories by scrapbooking… I started traveling to Stampin up! events and got addicted to  the pleasure of swapping cards, getting new ideas at leadership and convention and mostly the new friendships across Canada and the USA.  I had never traveled alone before.  It was at one of the convention that I had set up one of my goals to win an incentive trip, I earn the southern caribbean cruise, the Alaska cruise, the disney trip of a life time and attending Founders circle... I had never cruised before, it was amazing….  One of my achievements was to be #3 demonstrator in Canada,  never in my wildest dreams did I expect that.  I got free products, recognitions, bonus etc…The highlight of those 10 years is when I earned a workshop of a lifetime in my home with Shelli Gardner, ceo of Stampin up and her daughter Sara who has now taken Shelli's position.  We hosted a workshop in my home, had my downline meet them and have supper with them and in the evening hosted a large event for all demonstrators and customers.   I wanted all of them to benefit from meeting Shelli and Sara!

It has been an amazing journey!  (smile)  I have attended all levels as a demonstrator, from buying the kit for the discounts, to being a hobby demo to achieving trips, and other amazing perks.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to my customers and the demonstrators on my team for those 10 years of ongoing support, regardless of the level that I attained! xo

The clock is ticking, you have until tomorrow to get 2 additional, free stamps sets with your starter kit, Click HERE for details.

 

 

This card was made with the new 2016-2018 incolor Peekaboo Peach, cardstock code #141417 and ink #141398, as well as pear pizzazz cardstock #131201 and ink #131180.  So saffron ink was also used #105118. Whisper white cardstock #100730.  The stamp set is a new stamp set called Penned & Painted, it's a two step set.  Order with code #141938.  Suggested clear blocks to mount stamps are A,B,C,G.

The greeting is from the stamp set Thoughtful Banners #141614  53 words/greeting!!! how useful is that ? Celebrate was punched with the duet banner punch #141483.   The best part about these two items is that you can buy them as a bundle and save 10%, item code #142330.

Pineapple love…

Here is one more sample from the pop of paradise stamp set. (#141581 in clear or #141578 in wood)  In this card I used the pineapple from the stamp set. It's adorable.  Pineapples are really in right now.  When shopping in stores, they are everywhere, on clothes, glasses, pens and papers…. I stamped one pineapple with melon mambo ink (#126948) and cut it out, with my scissor snips.  These scissors are the bomb!(#103579) They are perfect for precision cutting…  I added dimensionals (#104430)  and elevated the image to create dept.  The other two pineapples were stamped with pink pirouette ink. (#126956)     The pink polka dot paper and the black & white zigzags are from the pop of pink specialty designer series paper. (#141648).  Once again, I love layering the same tone of cardstock on top of each other to create dept in my card.  I used whisper white cardstock. (#100730) This card was simple to do and the designer paper was a beauty just on it's own.  The card coordinates perfectly with the one made in my last post. They are the perfect set to give away.

 

My Second card, includes the large Pineapple stamp (#141746 in clear) suggested clear block to use would be F  (#118483) or if you prefer the wood pineapple stamp set (#141743)  Designer paper are the same as listed above and ink as well. For this stamped image, i wanted to create a ombre look.  Therefore I stamped the pineapple in pink pirouette first, then used a sponge dauber (#133773) and stamped melon mambo ink directly on the rubber.  And voila!!!  I also added melon mambo thick baker's twine as embellishment. (#141689)  To adhere the bow, the best product to use is mini glue dots. (#103683)  The greetings on both cards were stamped with the basic black archival stamp pad (#140931)

I hope these cards have brought a little summer stamping inspiration.  Now has never been a better time to order summer inspirational stamp sets.  Don't hesitate to contact me or place your order in my online store

If you love all of stampin up products now is the perfect time to get the starter kit and get your products at a discount price.  There is a crazy deal going on.  If you purchase the kit before June 30th you get 2 additional stamp sets of your choice…Amazing!!!! Check it out HERE.

have a great week, hugs xo

Pop of paradise and pop of pink

I am digging the pop of paradise stamp set. (#141581 in clear or #141578 in wood) Here is another one of my samples.   I made swap cards and sent these cards out to a group. I stamped my background and love the crisp color of the black ink. From this picture you would think my leaves are from a designer paper but they aren't.  I stamped the black leaves with my new basic black archival stamp pad (#140931) and the pink leaves are melon mambo ink (#126948).    The new basic black archival ink rocks!  I've never seen black ink look so crisp!  The pink polka dot paper, the gold polka dots and the black & white horizontal stripes are from the pop of pink specialty designer series paper. (#141648).  I love layering the same tone of cardstock on top of each other to create dept in my card.  Today I used whisper white cardstock. (#100730)  I always keep a couple of packages of these because they coordinate with all the stampin up ink colors.

You’re so pretty…

I love the pre made kits that stampin up has created. Especially, with my busy mom and work life. As you might know, I've returned to work full time as a nurse and I do extra commuting. The kits are perfect for on the go stamping. I've fallen for the You're so pretty kit #140590. It's part of the occasion catalogue. You can make 12 cards and 12 bags with tags.  What attracted me to this kit was the content. It includes gold foil card, white envelops, glassine bags, baker's twine, die cut tags/banner & accents pieces, banner paper clips, metallic enamel shapes and the best part, it includes a sponge brayer with extra sponge. Stampin up! Posted a fabulous video on how to use the sponge brayer and make the projects in this kit. You can complete the kit with coordinating stamp set available in English #140762 or en français de toute beauté #141125.   I love the large die cuts especially the huge diamond. With 3 daughters in the house, we love making girly projects.  You can copy the exact samples offered by stampinup or make and customize your own projects with this kit. I will post some of mine.  To see the video please click here

Order this super amazing kit now in my store or contact me. you will be able to create these projects at home or come join me and let's stamp together. 

Have an amazing day!

Botanical blooms love <3

I am loving the botanical blooms bundle from the occasion catalogue. Yesterday I shared how the dots were created on my cards. But I also loved the die cut flowers. The botanical builder framelits dies #140625 are great to layer images to create unique flowers or use individual images as fun accents. 

You can purchase the coordinating botanical blooms photopolymer stamp set #140757. 

If you love the botanical blooms collection, why not get the botanical blooms photopolymer bundle which includes the stamp set, framelits dies and the botanical gardens designer series paper #140819. You save 15%. It's an amazing deal. 

 

The botanical blooms framelits really make pretty detailed flowers. Don't miss out before the occasions catalogue is retired and get your botanical blooms collection today. You can order directly on my online store
