March Thank You Cards – All Things Thanks Tutorial

I love to send out thank you cards each month to my stamping friends – It not only allows me to share, but say thank you to them for choosing me as their demonstrator. This month’s card is a monochromatic card made with the All Things Thanks stamp set, which is one of my favorites since it has a variety of fonts and sizes. It makes it a perfect set for all kinds of projects!

And the fact it is monochromatic makes it perfect for new stampers since it uses a limited amount of supplies!

Check out my tutorial so you can make some too-

Got your Reinkers? – 2016 In Color Reminder

Just a reminder as we head in to the last couple of weeks of Sale-a-bration. It’s a great time to finish up your color families and make sure that you have the products that you need and love AND earn FREE Sale-a-bration products. Ink Pads, Card stock, Ink Refills, and markers along with other accessories such as ribbons.

In particular you’ll want to double check your 2016 In Colors since these items tend to disappear fast once the retirement list is announced in mid April.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing fun gift project using the Petal Palette stamp set!

Team Time Fun – On Stage Style!

One of the things I love to do is share the excitement of a Stampin’ Up! event and On Stage is no different. So recently we gathered to share in the excitement of our On Stage Savannah experience. I’d brought  back LOTS of goodies and projects to share.

Friday night the classroom was set up for a fun evening.

I was able to share the table decorations with everyone from On Stage – Savannah in addition to our Make ‘n Takes we made at the event. (Stop by tomorrow and I’ll share those with you then. LOL!).

We kicked off by gathering for a meal of soup and salad – and watched Sara’s welcome and a bit of the creative projects too.

Cindy and Deborah out did themselves with some special home made desserts – Strawberry Cake and Raspberry Crisp – yum

And everyone on my team was greeted and received a special little token from Savannah.

These little crates are adorable! These little shot glasses were packaged in one of our new dies – can you see it packaged in the cellophane bag?

And the shot glasses make a perfect holder for your Multipurpose Glue – simply set it inside to always keep the glue at the tip!

Yes, it’s that simple – and you should have seen my husband’s face when he saw 9 shot glasses all in a row! Priceless.

They also received some cute little bangle that I made for them celebrating the new catalog. I had such fun shopping for the beads to match our new In Colors and putting these together!

Yes, that is Shrinky Dinks again – this time I made a 2017-2018 Annual Catalog charm

And for those that attended our Live Stream Event I made a second charm to remember it by – Fun! I love to pamper my team!

On to the main event – make n takes with NEW 2017 In Colors and Annual Catalog products! Yeah!

Want to see what we made? I fell in love with the Color Theory Suite of products and this little chair from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies (143751) when I saw it.

And since I was going for a beach feel (Savannah – get it LOL!) I thought the By the Shore Designer Series Paper was a perfect background.

This next card I used our Daisy Punch that I received at On Stage. Along with some of the other products from the Delightful Daisy Suite. I love the new Tranquil Tide, 2017 In Color and I can’t wait for you to see these Faceted Gems! What a wow they add to projects.

And finally a card using a wonderful stamp set  Ribbon of Courage inspired by Patty Bennett, one of our recent Million Sales Achievers. I was so excited when I was able to bring this home with me from Savannah! After all who of us hasn’t had or know someone we care about who has been affected by cancer of some type.

I wanted something soft so I started with our NEW 2017 In Color Powder Pink and teamed it up with my favorite new In Color Berry Burst. The ribbon is embossed in White and I used a Blender Pen and Berry Burst to highlight the flowers. After I went back and used our Clear Wink of Stella to highlight some of the swirls and add a bit of shimmer. I really like the way it turned out.

We finished up our evening with a selfie!

So what do you think? Love the new items too? It’s just a peek of what’s inside the 2017 Annual Catalog! And as I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first? Right!  Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t loose! If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first too!
