Paper Flower Hummingbird

I'm having lots of fun making these paper flowers and adding them to my crafting!

My color scheme came from the beautiful designer paper in the Occasions Mini Catalog called Shades of Spring.  It's Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and So Saffron.  The stamped images are from Elements of Style, a new stamp set that will be available on May 1st, from the Summer Mini Catalog.  Click HERE,  HERE and HERE to see other samples made with this great new set. I used Stampin' Write Markers to color the flower and filigree image directly on the rubber, and the hummingbird is cut out and adhered with Dimensionals.  I used some Certainly Celery 5/8" Satin Ribbon behind the flower. 

The flower is made by cutting out Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper using the following:

  • 1 flower from the smallest flower on the Flower Folds Die for the Big Shot
  • 1 flower from the XL Fancy Flowers Punch
  • 6 flowers from the Scallop Circle Punch

Just crumple each flower up, then smooth out and stack them in the order above.  Using a Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack, pierce a hole through all 8 layers, then add a brad through the center.  Work the petals of the flowers back to achieve the desired look.

Item No. 117160 Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper $9.95
Item No. 118611 Elements of Style stamp set wood mount $27.95 or clear mount $19.95

Lovely Flowers Bundle

Here's a card made by Missy Shipman, my second level upline and team leader of The Gladheart Stampers.  Missy sent me this card because I was the No. 1 salesperson on her entire team for the month of February!  Thank you to all my wonderful customers who purchased from me in February!  And thank you to Missy for her note of congratulations.

Missy used the designer paper and stamp set contained in the Lovely Flowers Bundle, a Level 3 Hostess-Exclusive set and free with a workshop total of $500 or more.  It's a fabulous color scheme with Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Old Olive.  This card is all about using the Big Shot die cut machine to add quick and easy pizzazz to all of your cards.  The oval is cut with the Ovals Originals Die and the Big Shot, and the Melon Mambo scalloped circle is cut with the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die and the Big Shot.  She did some fabulous dry embossing with the Perfect Polka Dot Textured Impressions Folder and, you guessed it, the Big Shot!  She scalloped the edge of the Crushed Curry card stock with the Scallop Edge Punch and added some beautiful Old Olive 5/8" Satin Ribbon

To order your very own Big Shot and dies, click HERE 24/7 and click "Shop Now".  There are just 2 short weeks left of the Sale-A-Bration promotion.  With ever $50 you spend, receive a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure!  That means with the purchase of the Big Shot die cut machine, you can earn TWO free products this month only!  Click HERE for more details on Sale-A-Bration, and get your order placed today!

Heartfelt Stampers Team Fun

I look so forward to getting together with my Stampin' Up! team members on the first Thursday evening of each month.  It's time to learn, be recognized and of course stamp!  But my favorite part is just reconnecting with women I've come to call very special friends.  This month was especially exciting because we've change the format of our Team Times to include lots more stamping and a newly revised recognition program.  Here are pictures and some of the highlights of the evening.

In January we met to work on some fabric ideas using the Big Shot and the Scallop Square Die.  You can view a couple of the bags that were made HERE.  Pam Kane brought along her version of the rag purse — she turned it into a supply tote by making a bag that would accommodate a photo box.  How cool is that!

Phyl Lyons also shared a project she's been working on.  It's a very cute note pad holder and matching pen.  Wish I could have taken Phyl's class and made this myself! 

Missy Shipman, my "upline's upline" sent some fun things our way!  Here's a beautiful felt pin she made each of us in attendance using the Big Shot:

She also sent me a beautiful hand-stamped card with matching envelope for being in her top 10 Sales Achievers!  It's using Vintage Vogue stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  Missy's card is so gorgeous, and it's a reminder to do some stamping on the envelope as well.

I was also recognized by my upline, Aly Schilling, for top sales achiever in her group, as well as recruiting a new team member.  Aly began making these darling Sweet Treat prizes for us!  I was lucky enough to earn four of them!

And here's the card I received from Aly as well.  February was a great month for me — thank you to all my wonderful customers for your support!

We also did some swapping, but I'll save those cards for later! 

Would you like to come to our next Team Time?  Contact me to find out how to become a part of a very active group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators and join in the fun!
