Sneak Peek!

Hello! I have a little sneak peek to share with you today! This is a card that I CASE'd directly from Ronda Wade's blog. I love her style- she makes uncomplicated, but very pretty cards. Anyway, this stamp set is called "Four Frames" and it is from the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog (coming in July), along with this beautiful Designer Series Paper, which is called, "Paisley Petals". Demonstrators were able to preorder this set and DSP in March (just one of the things I love about being a demonstrator- we get to see and buy things before anyone else!) and customers have the opportunity to purchase the stamp set and paper in April. April hostesses can earn both for FREE!

Here are the details of the promotion...

In the month of April, customers who place a $20 (before tax and shipping) order will be eligible to purchase the "Four Frames" set for $20.95 (wood-mount) or $15.95 (clear-mount) and the "Paisley Petals" DSP for $9.95.

Hostesses will earn both the stamp set and the DSP for FREE when they have a $350 workshop!

This promotion is for April only. This set and DSP will not be available again until the new Idea and Book and Catalog is released on July 1st. You don't want to miss out!

I have the last weekend in April open for a workshop. If you would like to be a hostess and earn these free goodies, give me a call. I'd love to do a workshop for you and your friends!

Have a great day!

Technique Club Cards #2

Good Monday afternoon! I hope you had a great weekend! My technique hostess club met for the second time on Friday night and we had a wonderful time. I have been blessed with a really fun group of ladies in my club! We even had two new ladies join our group this time. It really was so much fun! At this meeting, we focused on techniques using heat embossing. The card above uses heat embossing only and the card below we used a technique called emboss resist. I was really happy with how these cards turned out. I hope my club members liked them too!

This card was a CASE of a card made by Michelle Hamilton that I found on splitcoast.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Because I Care (level one hostess)
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Heat Tool, Black Embossing Powder, Basic Black Satin Ribbon

This was the second card we made. It is a redo of a card I posted back in November. I really loved that card and thought it would be pretty redone using bright, springy colors. This card was used to teach the emboss resist technique. The larger flowers were embossed using clear embossing powder and then we sponged Sahara Sand ink over the embossed image giving it the soft shadow around the edges. This is called emboss resist because once you emboss an image, it resists ink so it doen'st stick to the image. There is also a new set that will appear in the new Idea book and Catalog that will be released in July. It is called Four Frames. I used it on the sentiment image. I love that this set coordinates with one of my favorite punches- the Decorative Label punch. Customers will have an opportunity to purchase and hostesses will be able to earn it for free during the month of April only! Contact me for more information!
Supplies Used:

Concord Crush Sympathy Card

Happy Sunday! We are having a rainy Sunday here and I've always thought that Sundays should be sunny, but oh well! Sunday is also the day of rest and that's all I feel like doing on a rainy day, so I guess an occasional rainy Sunday isn't too bad.

This is another card that I made using the new Build a Blossom stamp set and Blossom Petals punch. I used Concord Crush ink to make the flower. To make the two-toned flower, I inked up the solid flower petal stamp in the ink, then stamped once on scrap paper (a technique called stamping off) and then stamping again on my Whisper White cardstock. I then used the petal accent stamp full strength (without stamping off) over the full petal. I then punched them out and layered them over a circle that I punched out using the 1 3/4" circle punch.

This is a sympathy card because I had a friend request a set of sympathy cards, but it could easily be made into any type of card using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in the Word Window punch.

We will definitely be using this stamp set and punch at my upcoming flower-themed classes on April 9th and 15th. If you have not already registered and are interested in attending, I have several openings for the April 15th class, but the April 9th class is full. Please RSVP and send me your $20 ($15 for members of my stamping club) class fee by March 18th.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Stop back by sometime soon!
