Different colors for Thinking of You

I had done this same card for my Convention Swaps back in July; you'll find that purple and green card HERE.  I changed up the same card and used fall colors – Soft Suede and Peach Parfait – and was surprised at how different the card looked!  We also now have Dazzling Details to use on the flowers instead of Dazzling Diamonds and 2-way glue.

Congratulations to my Team members – August 2011

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

Debbie Sowards
Nicole Bertrand
and
Pam Kane

You ladies rock!  And here's the special card I made them.

This was a fun and different layout for me.  It didn't photograph so well because the base of the card is Baja Breeze, but the top right piece is Whisper White going all the way to the edges, with the top corner rounded using the 3/16" Corner Punch.  The image comes from Simply Soft, a hostess-exclusive stamp set that I just adore!  This was so much fun coloring in with 4 different Stampin' Write Markers – So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard and Old Olive – with just a touch of White Gel Pen at the base of the flowers to set them off.  The sentiment is from another hostess-exclusive stamp set called Perfect Words – in fact these two fabulous stamp sets share a page in our Idea Book & Catalog!  There's a bit of So Saffron Designer Paper from Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper pack and Old Olive 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon with an Antique Brad adds some more interest.  The pretty little white border is Whisper White card stock punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  The strip of card stock that it borders is Cherry Cobbler.

Ready for Convention!

I still have to pack, but everything's laid out for my trip to Salt Lake City, UT, and the Stampin' Up! Convention!  I leave in just 3-1/2 hrs.!  Here are the swaps I made to take along – I made about 85 of each design for a total of 170 swaps!  That means I'll be bringing back 170 brand new card ideas for all of my workshop customers to view!  Be sure to book an August workshop with me to view my basket full of inspiration!

Here's a brand new hostess stamp set you're going to LOVE called Simply Soft.  It's a set of 6 two-step stamping stamps that create different floral images.  Color scheme is Elegant Eggplant and two new In Colors for 2011-13 – Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade!  I've used the 2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to spif up the flowers.  Thank You Kindly stamp gives the sentiment.

My second swap uses the SAME stamp set – Simply Soft – this time stamped in StazOn Black ink and overstamped with Rose Red Classic Ink.  The new blue is another of the 2011-13 In Colors called Pool Party.  Remember Soft Sky?  Well, it's just a bit more saturated a color but the same tone – love it!  I've used the Petal Cone Die with my Big Shot to make creating the Whisper White banner a breeze.  Word Play stamp set gives this terrific sentiment.

And did you know that as of July 1st, Stampin' Up! has announced a brand new hostess benefits plan with even more benefits?  I love the versatility of this plan – your hostess dollars will give you more of what you want in free products!  Contact me to get your workshop on the calendar and start earning items like this gorgeous stamp set FREE!
