Because I Care

One of the really cool advantages of becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the fact that we get to preview and purchase new products before everyone else.  This Hostess Level 1 stamp set called Because I Care is just one example of the preview.  Also shown are new colors Baha Breeze (returning color), Pear Pizzazz (new In Color), and Marina Mist (new core color).

There are only a few days left to become a demonstrator for only $99 with the mini starter kit.  Find out how you can not only preview and purchase new products before anyone else, but you will receive a 20% discount on all purchases ... but wait ... there's more (sorry, couldn't resist) ... you will also be a part of my team.  You get FREE classes, great designing tips, and just plain fun!

Elements of Style For You

This card is so much prettier in real life.  The colors of rich razzleberry and sahara sand just pop together.  En Francois and Elements of Style are the stamp sets used.  The bird is cut out and attached with dimensionals.

Have a great day!

Flower Shoppe Bouquet Bunch

One of the ladies in my club suggested flowers for this card, instead of ice cream, so that's just what I made. A flower shoppe. The flowers are from the Bouquet Bunch from the mini catalog. The colors are crumb cake (kraft), whisper white, and cherry cobbler. The crumb cake is stamped with soft suede on the woodgrain stamp. The ribbon is retired riding hood red ribbon, which matched pretty well.

Don't forget, there are only a few days left to order from the Last Chance Accessory List.

Sweet Scoops Shoppe

This fun card is a total CASE from Lori Heiling.  We made this card at club last night, and everyone just loved it.  The awning is scalloped punched then accented with strips from the word window punch.  The Sweet Scoops is such a great set for the summer.  The colors are pretty in pink, whisper white and chocolate chip. The ice cream scoops are enhanced by stamping in versamark and clear-embossing on very vanilla, pretty in pink and chocolate chip card stock, then cut out.  The cherries are punched from the retired 1/4" circle punch and highlighted with a white gel pen.  The bottom of the "shoppe" is embossed with the square lattice impressions folder.

Stamp Set:  Sweet Scoops, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock:  Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Ink:  Pumpkin Pie, Versamark with clear embossing powder, Chocolate Chip, white gel pen
Extras:  1/2" Pretty in Pink striped grosgrain ribbon, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Square Lattice Impressions folder.

Ronald McDonald House

Last weekend, 10 fellow demonstrators had an opportunity to share our love for card making with guests at the Ronald McDonald House.  The participants, which included the children and their families, made the cute Build-A-Bear projects, along with the Hostess Level 2 card.  It was such a rewarding experience.  The children were so proud of their projects, and it gave the family members an opportunity to take a positive break from the stresses of their situations.  Thanks Joan Cress, Stampin' Up! manager, for coordinating the event.

Now is the perfect time to join the Stampin' Up! family for only $99 with the mini starter kit.  Password is "zgrandma".  I look forward to including you in our next charity event!

Studio Sketches

Sneak peak items ... one of the cool advantages of being a demonstrator is to be able to purchase upcoming products before they are available to everyone else.  This stamp set called Studio Sketches is a perfect "art" set.  The Pear Pizzazz (green paper) is one of the upcoming new in colors.

I'm not allowed to give any more details on the card due to Stampin' Up! regulations, so why not consider becoming a demonstrator yourself (for only $99 with the mini kit), and you can get ALL the details of the sneak peak items.

Sweet Scoops Goes Wild

Sweet Scoops has become a very "wild" stamp set.  Although this is not my idea, I love it and had to make a card using it.  This is a CASE from Jackie Topa.  I changed the image but the background is the same.  What fun! 

The zebra stripes come from the texture stamp and the design on the More Mustard cardstock are the sprinkles.  The giraffe comes from Animal Stories.  The red band adds a punch of color.

Stamp Sets:  Sweet Scoops, Animal Stories
Ink:  More Mustard, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip
