DSP is buy 3 get 1 FREE!

Designer Series Paper (a.k.a. DSP) is by far my favorite accessory.  It is so versatile....use it for cards, gift packaging, decor, and memory keeping.  It adds lots of color and texture in a snap!  Here are my top 4 DSP in honor of our Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion good until the end of July.  If you click on the previous link you will see a list of the available items for this promotion.  Specialty DSP is not included, unfortunately, but there are still 10 from which to choose. Check back all this month to see projects showcasing the versatility and awesomeness of DSP!

Use Hostess Code: B4VPZTHJ this month when you order online and I will email you two ideas and instructions to start using your DSP!

Why?  Because I love anything French...and this take on French Impressionism (Monet, Seurat, Van Gough, etc) is just so vibrant!

Who doesn't want to escape to the Tropics?  I love the new color Granny Apple Green...and pair it with a pink..."You had me at Hello".

This 12x12 DSP featuring photographic floral designs on one side and textured appearance on the other is just beautiful!  One thing I LOVE about it is the trimmable elements included in two of the designs which are perfectly sized for small about coordinating gift wrap and card!

Why?  Christmas in July...of course!  Hallmark Christmas movies have been playing at my house these past few days and my daughter has already made a Holiday Planner and stamped Christmas cards.  Shaded Spruce* is one of the newly revamped colors and I can't wait to use it.  
*Note:  It's also in the Tropical Escape DSP listed above.

Ten FREE Ink Pads?!?!?

It's reminiscent of when I joined the Stampin' Up! family as a Demonstrator back in 2002...I got a set of Bold Bright ink pads for FREE with my Starter Kit!  This is an offer that really doesn't come around that often.  I think it was only offered one other time since I signed up as a SU! Demonstrator 16 years ago!
Right now, for a limited time, Stampin’ Up! is offering a FREE family of Classic Stampin’ Pads to all new recruits. Join my team today, The INK Crowd (how's that for a coincidence or is it serendipitous?), and get a color family of your own.

May flowers!

April Showers for the Stampin' Blends Club creates May Flowers projects!  So very sad that the Stampin' Blends aren't available for purchase right now due to their popularity (backorder/unorderable status), but so grateful that I was able to get sets for my club members in two very versatile colors....Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  Although I had to change my original plans for club projects (the April showers), I'm very happy with the new projects albeit late (hence the May flowers).

OnStage Swap and Surprise!

So happy that this Beautiful Day stamp set will be in the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2018-19 Annual Catalog!  Two large images and greetings in a beautiful font.  Love to watercolor?  The rose and butterfly are perfect images to create focal points.  I used the Daffodil Stampin' Blend to add highlights to the flower that I had stamped on Delightful Daffodil card stock.  Did the same for the leaf on Old Olive, cut it out, and adhered to the Stiched-square layer.

I used this card as my "swap" at the recent Milwaukee OnStage event.  It was a training event for Demonstrators and I got to see a lot of friends I haven't seen in years!  And we were so lucky to have Shelli Gardener, the co-founder of Stampin' Up! as our host for the day...what an amazing surprise for us!

Epic Celebration!

First card for my Stampin’ Blends club March projects.  Loved how it turned out!  Can you see the mini sequins trim behind the headset?  Also lovin’ the black and white Pick a Pattern Washi tape!  I was inspired by this post from Patty Bennett using the Watercolor Wash background stamp over the Brick Wall embossed card stock.

Used the Epic Celebrations Sale-a-Bration stamp set and the Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to get the shaded watercolor look.  The Blends are so popular that the supply has been depleted until May!  Club Members never fear...I have a plan.  Check back soon for card #2 for March and all the supplies for both projects.  Follow me (sign up to the right) and you’ll be notified when it’s posted.
