Sail Away & The Open Sea Stamp Sets

The third winning TEAM Design was done by Nancy Merzke.  Lots of detail went into this card, which is hard to see in the scan.  Frost White & Champagne Mist Shimmer Paints were used to give this card a real shine along with the coloring of the embossing folder, this card just shines.


Love & Care Level 2 Hostess Set

Here is another award winning card entry from my Stamp TEAM.  This card is done by Mary Ann Rossiter.  She used the new Level 2 Hostess Set from the Summer Mini.  I love flower stamp sets, and this set done with the Embossing Resist Technique, sure does stand out.


The Open Sea Summer Mini Set

One of the biggest blessing of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, is all the wonderful ladies I have under me in 27 states.  I would of never been able to meet them had it not been for Stampin' Up!  Every time a new mini catalog comes out we do a mail in swap.  Where each lady taking part creates one card and mails to me.  I swap them out with the other demonstrator's card.  What a lot of talent in our TEAM.  I always award three winners prizes for the best card design.  Which is a hard thing to judge.  Here is a winner selection from Adrianne Pender using the Open Sea Stamp Set.


Fabulous Florets Stamp Set

Fabulous Florets is a beautiful stamp set from the Summer Mini.  It matches the Designer Seies Paper Beyond the Gardan, which has bright summer colors in it.  And if that wasn't enough, Stampin' Up! added new embossing powders to match in the bright colors.  I used Stampin' Up!'s note cards to create a collection of these cards that fit in to Stampin' Up!'s Clear-Mount Stamp Cases for an upcoming downline meeting in the Rochester, NY area.

Punch Bunny

Wanted to share the reference sheet I am giving my hostesses this month to make this adorable bunny with Stampin' Up! Punches.  Isn't he adorable?

New Triple Layer Punches

I love punches, but the new Stampin' Up! Triple Layer Punches create three coordinating punch images with just one punch, for only $23.95.  And as you can tell from my chart the Blossom Bouquet really gives you four images because you have the inside of the scallop.  These images look beautiful layered together or separately--giving you more creative options!  This will also save space.  Book a workshop today and I will show you how easy they are to use.

Sneak Peek Embossing Folder Flower Garden

One of the perks of being a demonstrator is you get to pre-purchase items from an upcoming catalog.  Here is a sample I did using the new embossing folder Flower Garden, that will be in the Summer Mini, that you can order from starting May 1st.  If you have purchased from me in the last year your Summer Mini will be in your mail box soon.  Please note that the image is revised from what it is showing in the mini.  It is beautiful not make what direction it is going.
