Congratulations to my Team Members – February

Oh, my!  I just found this post in my drafts!  I thought for sure I had sent this out, but apparently didn't.  So sorry, gals – you had an awesome February.

A sincere "From the Heart Stampers" congratulations goes out the top three sales people on my team for the month of February!  They are:

Sheila Edwards
Sharon Sponaugle
Pam Kane

And Sheila had her first-ever monthly sales total over $1000!  She is working hard to increase her business in the Elmira, NY, area.  Great job, ladies!

And here's the special card I made them:

What a spring-like color combination – Pretty in Pink, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz with a touch of Rich Razzleberry.  This card would also be perfect for Easter – simply change the sentiment stamped on the front.  I began by using the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Framed Tulips.  I can't get enough of this gorgeous embossing folder!  It's so versatile and is the perfect backdrop for almost any card.  The stamped image is from A Flower for All Seasons.  This is the perfect time to get this stamp set free with a $50 purchase through the end of March.  Click here to find out how!  I've watercolored the image using Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Painter  – the key here is to use Watercolor Paper.  And not just any brand!  I tried this technique with non-Stampin' Up! watercolor paper and it doesn't work!  The Stampin' Up! watercolor paper is a high quality that will ensure your little pictures look like works of art!  No "skimping" here!  I lined up some paper-piercing perfectly using the Mat Pack and Paper Piercing Tool and added a twist of Rich Razzleberry 5/8" Satin Ribbon for some pop.  The sentiment is from A Word For You – just marker the part of the stamp you want to use.

A Country Thank You

I've said it before, but it's really true — Stampin' Up! designer series papers are the best!  I love taking my color scheme from the beautiful color combinations found in these gorgeous paper packs.  Here I've used Pawsitively Prints II Designer Series Paper that was created especially for our Build-A-Bear line, but these great papers work for any country feel. I love the smaller patterns so that I can use smaller pieces of the paper.  Here I began with Whisper White card stock as my card base, layered on Real Red card stock that was run through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Next came a piece of Daffodil Delight 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon with three rectangles of designer paper.  The sentiment is stamped from A Word For You in Early Espresso Classic Ink and punched out with a circle punch.  I created the flower by punching Tempting Turquoise card stock out with the Boho Blossoms Punch.  A Silver Brad sets off the center and Dimensionals pop up everything for interest.

A Word For Everything

The two featured stamps sets in this card are For Everything and A Word for You.  I began thinking that I would use more of the Island Oasis Designer Series Paper but ended up only pulling out the Pumpkin Pie Polka Dot sheet from the packet.  But this gorgeous, summery paper pack did help me get started with a terrific color scheme — Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red and Old Olive.  For some reason, this stamp set really lends itself to 3"x6" cards.  See my Card Kit of the Month which also features For Everything along with Flower Brads.  I stamped a tone-on-tone image on the Rose Red card stock base, then added Old Olive card stock punched with the Eyelet Border Punch.  Next came the polka dot designer paper followed by the main image popped up on lots of Dimensionals.  I used a Silver Mini Library Clip and added just a snip of Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon using a Mini Glue Dot.  A Pumpkin Circle Fire Rhinestone Brad acts as a glitzy center for the flower, and a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter held on with 2-Way Glue Pen gives the butterfly some shine.  Don't you just love the font of the new sayings in A Word For You!  Use both lines of the saying together or simply use a Stampin' Write Marker to highlight just the first line.  This sentiment stamp set is sure to be one of this year's most popular sets.
