Congratulations to my Team Members – October

Great job, ladies!

And here's the special card I made them:

This technique is called Window Sheet Magic, using the Autumn Days stamp set.  First, stamp your image (in this case, the pheasant from that set) on a Window Sheet with Black StazOn Ink.  Scribble Crystal Effects on the unstamped side of the Window Sheet.  Add a few drops of Classic Reinker of your color choice (I use Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede).  Don't use too much or it'll be really messy!  Next add a little Dazzling Diamonds Glitter then a slightly larger piece of tissue paper to the back.  Attach the tissue paper to a piece of neutral card stock and let it dry, then cut down the excess on the edges.  Notice the shimmer also in the background paper?  It's from Sweet & Sour Specialty Designer Series Paper!  The "gratitude" stamp comes from Fabulous Phrases punched out using the Curly Label Punch.  Add some doodling with a Soft Suede Stampin' Write Marker and a couple of Gold Brads for interest.

Congratulations to my Team Members – September

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

Sheila Edwards
Ruth Petrovich
and
Heather Matos

Great job, ladies!  AND Sheila received her very first promotion to Sr. Associate!  Woo-hoo!  Here's a special card I made just for them:

I love the colors used in Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper – Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red – but for some reason, I couldn't get the papers to work with this layout.  So instead I "borrowed" a piece of Pumpkin Pie designer paper from Sweet & Sour Specialty Designer Series Paper and combined it with solids in the other colors.  The main image from Just Believe is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock cut with the Big Shot and the Oval Scallop Frame Die – just save the frame for another project.  So Saffron butterflies are also cut with the Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.  More Very Vanilla card stock is punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and tucked under the designer paper, and a big Real Red button in the Candy Cane Button collection from the Holiday Mini Catalog adds some zing.  Simply cut some card stock in a very thin slice and use as "thread".  Don't forget the Mini Glue Dots for adhering it to the card.  The "celebrate" sentiment is from Fabulous Phrases, a truly fabulous set for all sorts of greetings!
 

Don't forget to do a little stamping inside your card.  I simply used one of the other stamps in the Just Believe stamp set along with Early Espresso Classic ink to create this attractive border.

Back to stamping – finally!

I've been in my new house now for 17 short days!  There's still a lot to do, but I just had to take the time this morning to create!  My stamping studio is coming along nicely and I'll be adding some final storage units that are due to arrive later today.  I'll be posting pictures of my completed studio soon!  One thing that's very different about my new location is that there isn't a lot of natural light.  I'm in the woods and in the lower level of the house, so taking pictures with good lighting is going to be a challenge!

My card today begins with a bright, fun color scheme — Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Perfect Plum and Pumpkin Pie.  I used the For Everything stamp set for all of the images and the Fabulous Phrases stamp set for the sentiment.  TIP:  This stamp set is "fabulous" for putting together your very own customized saying, especially if you purchase it in clear mount.  Just combine several of the words in the saying onto one clear block and stamp once!  This is a terrific feature of the clear mount system!  Our new Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border is so versatile!  Use complete strips like I did here in Perfect Plum, or tuck them behind a solid piece of card stock to see just the edging like I did here with the Pumpkin Pie edge.  Pumpkin Pie Brads from the Brights Brads collection top off the cute flower centers.

Celebrate with Sunflowers

Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers, and they're beginning to pop up all over our area.  I used that idea to create this card to celebrate the accomplishments of my team members for the Stampin' Up! year that just came to a close on June 30th.  Congrats go out to Ruth Petrovich, Pam Kane, Lena Thompson and Cheryl Holman for a fabulous year in sales.

This card starts off with a base of More Mustard card stock.  This simple color has taken on new life when paired with some of our great new colors!  Here, it's Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze.  Flowers are cut out using the Big Shot and Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die, layering two flowers together.  Centers are created by punching Cajun Craze card stock with circle punches then stamping the heart image from Itty Bitty Bits in Early Espresso Classic Ink and punching those out as well.  The Sanded background stamp adds a bit of texture to the Cajun Craze card stock piece, as well as punching with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I added a piece of In Color Designer Series Paper from the Level 1 Hostess Paper Pack (earn this free for a workshop or order totaling at least $150!) and the Pear Pizzazz 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon coordinates beautifully.  "Celebrate" comes from this year's must-have word stamp called Fabulous Phrases.  You'll be seeing this great set a lot!
