10 year celebration

Truly in stampin up style, I was sent this beautiful card from The Main office in Alberta Canada.  How simple this gesture  can put a huge smile on my face, to be recognized with a handmade card from Stampin up!'s  canadian office.  This simple card has made me reflect on my adventures as a demonstrator for Stampin'up!  I have achieved all levels:  Join for the discount,  I wanted all my products at a discount price.  I was my best customer…. I fell in love with the products, the quality, the choice, the vibrant colors, those awesome stamps and huge ink pads…lol It was love at first site.  Then, I wanted to introduce the products to my close friends, to make cards and preserve their memories by scrapbooking… I started traveling to Stampin up! events and got addicted to  the pleasure of swapping cards, getting new ideas at leadership and convention and mostly the new friendships across Canada and the USA.  I had never traveled alone before.  It was at one of the convention that I had set up one of my goals to win an incentive trip, I earn the southern caribbean cruise, the Alaska cruise, the disney trip of a life time and attending Founders circle... I had never cruised before, it was amazing….  One of my achievements was to be #3 demonstrator in Canada,  never in my wildest dreams did I expect that.  I got free products, recognitions, bonus etc…The highlight of those 10 years is when I earned a workshop of a lifetime in my home with Shelli Gardner, ceo of Stampin up and her daughter Sara who has now taken Shelli's position.  We hosted a workshop in my home, had my downline meet them and have supper with them and in the evening hosted a large event for all demonstrators and customers.   I wanted all of them to benefit from meeting Shelli and Sara!

It has been an amazing journey!  (smile)  I have attended all levels as a demonstrator, from buying the kit for the discounts, to being a hobby demo to achieving trips, and other amazing perks.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to my customers and the demonstrators on my team for those 10 years of ongoing support, regardless of the level that I attained! xo

Pineapple love…

Here is one more sample from the pop of paradise stamp set. (#141581 in clear or #141578 in wood)  In this card I used the pineapple from the stamp set. It's adorable.  Pineapples are really in right now.  When shopping in stores, they are everywhere, on clothes, glasses, pens and papers…. I stamped one pineapple with melon mambo ink (#126948) and cut it out, with my scissor snips.  These scissors are the bomb!(#103579) They are perfect for precision cutting…  I added dimensionals (#104430)  and elevated the image to create dept.  The other two pineapples were stamped with pink pirouette ink. (#126956)     The pink polka dot paper and the black & white zigzags are from the pop of pink specialty designer series paper. (#141648).  Once again, I love layering the same tone of cardstock on top of each other to create dept in my card.  I used whisper white cardstock. (#100730) This card was simple to do and the designer paper was a beauty just on it's own.  The card coordinates perfectly with the one made in my last post. They are the perfect set to give away.


My Second card, includes the large Pineapple stamp (#141746 in clear) suggested clear block to use would be F  (#118483) or if you prefer the wood pineapple stamp set (#141743)  Designer paper are the same as listed above and ink as well. For this stamped image, i wanted to create a ombre look.  Therefore I stamped the pineapple in pink pirouette first, then used a sponge dauber (#133773) and stamped melon mambo ink directly on the rubber.  And voila!!!  I also added melon mambo thick baker's twine as embellishment. (#141689)  To adhere the bow, the best product to use is mini glue dots. (#103683)  The greetings on both cards were stamped with the basic black archival stamp pad (#140931)

I hope these cards have brought a little summer stamping inspiration.  Now has never been a better time to order summer inspirational stamp sets.  Don't hesitate to contact me or place your order in my online store

If you love all of stampin up products now is the perfect time to get the starter kit and get your products at a discount price.  There is a crazy deal going on.  If you purchase the kit before June 30th you get 2 additional stamp sets of your choice…Amazing!!!! Check it out HERE.

Pop of paradise and pop of pink

I am digging the pop of paradise stamp set. (#141581 in clear or #141578 in wood) Here is another one of my samples.   I made swap cards and sent these cards out to a group. I stamped my background and love the crisp color of the black ink. From this picture you would think my leaves are from a designer paper but they aren't.  I stamped the black leaves with my new basic black archival stamp pad (#140931) and the pink leaves are melon mambo ink (#126948).    The new basic black archival ink rocks!  I've never seen black ink look so crisp!  The pink polka dot paper, the gold polka dots and the black & white horizontal stripes are from the pop of pink specialty designer series paper. (#141648).  I love layering the same tone of cardstock on top of each other to create dept in my card.  Today I used whisper white cardstock. (#100730)  I always keep a couple of packages of these because they coordinate with all the stampin up ink colors.
