Want to see what we did at my FREE Sale-a-bration Celebration Event? This past Sunday I was able to share the NEW Spring Catalog products and some of the things I brought back with me from Stampin’ Up! Leadership in Orlando. What fun everyone had together – it’s one of my favorite parts of stamping.
First here are some pictures of my classroom and some of the displays.
Of course there has to be chocolate – after all what would be stamping without chocolate?
Everyone seemed to have a great time with the two cards they were able to make.
Here is my favorite card that I created for the event using the Just Thinking Stamp from the Spring Catalog. Just Thinking was one of the stamps I just knew I wanted when I saw the Spring Catalog the first time!
Since not everyone was able to come I thought I would share with you a tutorial on how my Just Thinking card was made, along with my very first video tutorial showing you how to use our Core’dinations Card Stock. I just love the Core’dinations Card Stock and think you will too – it’s a lot of fun to work with and very versatile. Better yet you’ll find three Core’dination Card Stock color choices Pool Party (item 129321), Primrose Petals (item 129322), and Real Red (item 129320) in the Spring Catalog on page 12.

2. Adhere the Primrose Petals Core’dinations Card Stock to your card front using Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. (I like to use this adhesive on anything that has a heavy texture.)
4. Using the Window Frame Framelits Die and Big Shot cut out one of the images.
5. Adhere to the card front.
6. Punch the sentiment out of the second stamped image using the 2 ½” Circle Punch.
7. Adhere to the card front using Dimensionals.
8. Loop ribbon around the card front and tie into a bow. Trim ends.
That’s it – now you can send your card to someone you’re thinking about.
