Sea of Textures

Just a quick post today to share a swap card I received from Team S.T.I.C. girl Brenda M. 
I received this swap card way back at the end of May and I loved it so much it's been sitting on my shelf ever since I received it.

The Sea of Textures set is so interesting.  Of course there are coordinating framelits that make the stamp set so much more exciting!

Check out Brenda's card

The amount of effort that went into this card just boggles my mind! 

I think I count at least 7 passes through the big shot!  However all those die cut elements really make the card remarkable! I also have to say I love the soft sea foam colour she used and how she distressed the cardstock to make it so textured! 

Thank you Brenda for swapping with me! 

Remember if you love this suite, make sure to get the stamp set and framelits together to save 10%!

Sharing some Stampin'

Last week I had the privilege of being invited to speak at a fellow demonstrators training event. Her name is Anne Granger and I believe I met her for the first time on an incentive trip.   She wanted to provide some training to the demonstrators in her downline but also opened it to any other demonstrators who wanted to join in.  She asked if I would be able to speak and join in on the day.  I certainly do love to share any stampin' business tips I have learned over the years and I especially love spending time with other demonstrators stamping and chatting.

I had a marvelous time!  The demonstrators I met  were so kind and happily gave me swap cards although I hadn't brought any to swap. 

Here's a card I received from Janice Thompson.

Isn't it pretty?  It uses the Love What you Do stamp set.

It was such a pleasure for me to attend an event where I could stamp and chat and just simply enjoy.  
I even received a "prize patrol" prize and as a fun surprise to me, the Canadian Stampin' Up! manager Dale Hampshire attended the event as a guest as well.  
Enjoying some time with him was great as it was like visiting with an old friend. 

Here's a few photos.  There were display boards, demonstrations, make n takes and more!  It was totally worth the two hour drive! 

Being a demonstrator means being part of a great and supportive community.  If you're interested in joining the fun, remember that just for July, you get a free family of ink pads on top of the already amazing starter kit deal! 
Remember the Stampin' Up starter kit gets you $165 worth of product for only $135 no shipping and no tax (in most provinces) 
Amazing right? 

Then add on a whole family of free ink pads!!! Unbelievable!

If you read my blog post on Monday, you'll remember I mentioned that I fell in love with the Petal promenade Designer Series Paper.

Here's one of the make n takes we did at the last Team Meeting which uses the beautiful paper.  

For today's watch it Wednesday I thought I would share this video that I shared a few weeks ago on my facebook party.  This video shows how they created this beautiful designer series paper.

Designer Series Paper is Easy to Use!

One of my favourite things about designer series paper is that it dresses up a card in a flash!

Here is one of the cards we made at this month's technique class.  (check out the cool reflection technique created with the stamparatus)

The fun animal expedition Designer series paper is on sale this month.

This DSP sale is the perfect way to stock up on favourites.  My belief is that the more DSP you own, the easier it is to chop it up and use it!

Make sure not to miss the buy 3 get 1 free dsp sale on now until July 31st! 

view everything on my online store! 

Don't forget for this month only all online orders $50 or more will receive a free pack of coloured doilies.  Just remember to use host code: DRC2B4TR

Beautiful Promenade

I have been enjoying playing with all my new stamps.  Today I wanted to share with you one of the cards I made for a recent Canadian swap.

I bought the beautiful promenade stamp set partially because I really liked the sentiments in the set.

I also was in love with the coordinating DSP and if I wanted the DSP then I may as well buy the stamp set do you know what I mean? 

Here's the card I created.   Funny I didn't end up using the DSP afterall.  Maybe I wasn't in the mood to cut it up yet.  :-)

However, I got the idea to use the petal pink and mossy meadow together because of the colours used in the dsp.  

Here's a bit of a closer look.  

I think the metallic edge ribbon just adds that elegant touch. 

Thanks for dropping in!  Check out the supply list below!  Hope this mojo Monday card inspires you to do some stamping! 

Don't forget any online orders (min. $50) during July using host code: DRC2B4TR
will receive a free pack of coloured doilies
