Ladies' Club - July

These are the three cards that my Ladies' Club made when we met a few days ago.

Postage Due with Summer Starfruit In-Color.  I CASE'd this card from Terry Blais.  This is such a simple card, but I think it's got just enough quirkiness to be one of my favorites.  I used Summer Starfruit to layer the main design as well as in the smaller postage stamp.  I also used Real Red and Early Espresso.  Marina Mist provides the backdrup for the big postage stamp.  The postage stamp punch coordinates great with this stamp set.  Makes me want to take a trip!  Maui anyone?  (My favorite place on Earth!)

This card used the Reason to Smile stamp set, which was on sale in July for $5 with a $50 minimum order.  I absolutely love 2-step stamping.  You will also see the embellishment used on this card in the new Holiday Catalog which begins August 1.  If you're like me, you will want everything in this catalog.  Stampin' Up! doesn't disappoint with the new Bundles and stamp sets.

This is a Birthday Easel card.  I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set for the big flower and added a Primrose Petals Dahlia in the center.  They look much larger in the catalog, but they are very small.  Cute, cute!

"I Am..."

This is a stamp set that is exclusive to demonstrators who attended the 2012 SU convention.  The theme song was "I Am..." and this set was made with that theme in mind.  I can't wait to use it!

25 Years of Stampin'

Stampin' Up! will be celebrating 25 YEARS of awesome products next year.  The annual convention will be at the Saltpalace in Salt Lake City, Utah, just as it is every year.  The convention will be three days, rather than four, in the hopes to lessen the cost to demonstrators.  That doesn't mean less fun, though!  That means will have more fun in fewer days!  I already have my room reserved for next year's convention.  Do you want to join me?  Ask me about becoming a Demonstrator TODAY!

Convention Welcome

What a welcome!  First thing in the morning we are welcomed by the Stampin' Up! staff with such amazing energy.  How can you not be motivated by this?  Awesome experience.

I Am...

Stampin' Up! convention - complete the phrase with just one word - "I Am..." - What would you say about yourself?

Bright Blossoms Punch Card

This is a card I made for my Secret Sister.  It uses the Summer Smooches DSP; the scallop border, 2 3/8" scallop and 3" circle punches.  I used the 1" square punch to create the banner cut.  The ribbon is 3/8" Taffeta Daffodil Delight (my favorite color).

Summer Smooches Petite Purse

This is the new Petite Purse Big Shot Die.  I love it!  This purse was done in Island Indigo card stock with Summer Smooches DSP.  I used an Antique Brad on the front flap and the Mini Brads on the purse straps.
