Great Color Combo!

Doesn't this yummy card just ooze "royalness"?  It's Concord Crush,  one of the In Colors, paired with Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler.  Love it!  This card was made for me by my daughter and upline Aly Schilling to celebrate my promotion to Sr. Manager!  It was a fun time with balloons, flowers and even a terrific gift – the brand new Petal Cone Die for my Big Shot!  The stamped circle motif is from Just Believe and "celebrate" comes from Fabulous Phrases – a set I have and keep forgetting to pull out!  It fits perfectly with the Word Window Punch.  There's lots and lots of interest with this card.  Two Regals Collection Buttons get a "dress up" with a thin piece of Whisper White card stock through the centers.  Several corners are rounded with the Corner Punch, There's a scallop circle behind the stamped image using the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch and coordinating scallops at the bottom from the Scallop Edge Border Punch.  The Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder create the texture on the Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The fabulous Concord Crush polka dot paper comes from the Hostess Level 1 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack, and it's all topped off with a piece of gorgeous 1/2" Stitched-Poly Concord Crush Ribbon.  And to top it all off, this incredible card was made using the Stampin' Sound Recordable Card so when I opened it, Aly gave me a big congratulations with her own voice! Whew – now that's a special card! 

I don't usually give the supply list for cards that I don't create myself, but I wanted you to have the item number to order these great recordable cards.  They were in the Holiday Mini Catalog so aren't featured in a catalog right now, but they're still available!

Item No. 121009  Stampin' Sound Recordable Card $5.95

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.

Autumn Splendor

Here's a card I created using the Autumn Splendor stamp set from last year's mini catalog (and this year's Idea Book & Catalog).  I used it so much last year then promptly forgot about it as this Fall began.  It works so well for this cascading border done in Rich Razzleberry, More Mustard, Old Olive and Early Espresso.  The base of the card is Very Vanilla card stock, although it doesn't show up well in my photo.  I ran a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock through the Big Shot with the Lattice Square Textured Embossing Folder.  To create a beautiful backdrop for the sentiment I simply inked up one of the leave stamps in More Mustard Classic Ink, then stamped first on a piece of scrap paper then onto Very Vanilla card stock in order to make it a little lighter.  The sentiment from Just Believe is then stamped over the leaves in Early Espresso Classic Ink.  A Rich Razzleberry button from the Brights Designer Buttons tied with some Linen Thread and held on with a Mini Glue Dot completes this simple yet effective card.

August Workshop Card

Here's one of the cards we made at a workshop this week.  It uses a gorgeous color combination — Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Night of Navy — along with an equally gorgeous stamp set, Just Believe. I began with a standard 1/2 sheet of 8-1/2"x11" card stock, folded it in half then sliced off 3/4" along the front right edge.  Faux stitching is a breeze with our Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool, along with the Gel Pen.  I ripped a piece of Old Olive card stock, adhered it to a strip of Night of Navy card stock then adhered both along the right side. The main image is off-stamped on Confetti White card stock with Night of Navy stamp pad (simply ink up your image, stamp first on a scrap piece of card stock then onto your "good" card stock without reinking), and the sentiment is stamped in "full-strength" Night of Navy classic ink.  I've torn the bottom edge of the tag and backed it with Old Olive card stock.  I punched a hole in the top and fed through some 1/8" Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon.  I love having Build-A-Brads on hand!  Simply stamp an image from the stamp set on a piece of Confetti White card stock, punch out with a circle punch, adhere it to the brad with SNAIL adhesive and pop on the adhesive acrylic bubble over top to create a custom look.  Here I've used Cajun Craze classic ink.

Just Believe

What a gorgeous new stamp set this is — Just Believe!  There are so many possibilities with all of the pieces you're given.  You'll definitely be seeing this stamp set on my blog again!  When I saw the new color Daffodil Delight, I was interested in pairing it with Night of Navy for a very classic color combo.  Here I've begun with Night of Navy card stock as the card base and stamped the large flower image in the left corner.  Then I added a torn piece of Daffodil Delight designer paper from the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack.  Next came a piece of Night of Navy 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon tucked under the designer paper and simply knotted at the end.  I inked the tag image with Stampin' Write Markers in the two main colors along with Garden Green, stamped on Whisper White card stock and cut it out with Paper Snips.  The sentiment is also contained in this terrific stamp set but it's in a long line so that it wouldn't fit in the frame.  No problem!  I simply stamped it on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and snipped out each individual word then popped them up using Dimensionals.
