VIP 10 for 250 Challenge

I’m currently running a very special challenge – a VIP 10 for 250 Challenge.

If your Wishlist has been growing since the Annual Catalog came out in June, now is the time to get some of those items, because now until September 16th I’m offering a bunch of extra freebies to the first 10 people who place $250 orders in product!

Once 10 people place their $250 orders using the Host code, 3 of them will get to choose a half price item for a current product found in the Holiday or Annual Catalog, 7 of them will get to choose $45 in FREE product, and once all the orders and Stampin’ Rewards are claimed, all 10 names will be entered into a $250 Stampin’ Up! shopping spree!!! Yes, that right! Another $250 to spend on your favorite Stampin’ Up! products.

Here are the details:

  • When ordering Online you must be sure to use Host Code EFXCZ934.
  • Failure to use the Host Code means your order will not count in the 10 and you will receive just the $25 Stampin’ Rewards instead of the $45 or ½ price items.

Can you imagine what you could get with a $250 shopping spree?

  • Reward products can be chosen from the current Annual and Holiday Catalogs.

Shop online now!

When you shop online, I will receive an email with your order total and you’ll get one of the 10 spots. As soon as the 10 for 250 challenge is full, I will pick a winner!

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

Every year Stampin’ Up! offers an amazing all expenses paid Incentive Trip to it’s Demonstrators and their partners. This year it is to Maui. We earn the trip by earning Flex Points. We earn these points by doing certain things all year including our product sales, recruiting new team members, leading our teams, and participating in promotions that Stampin’ Up! runs.

My long-term goal has been to earn one of the Incentive trips for my husband and I. I’ve been working so hard to try and achieve it over the past 5 years. I’m getting closer by the day and wayyy ahead of where I was last year. I would truly love it and it would make it extra special to achieve this trip during my 10th Anniversary year with Stampin’ Up! and every single order you place counts. That’s why I want to reward you in return for helping me!

Don’t forget, what happens when 10 people place $250 orders with me?

  • 3 people will receive ½ price items
  • 7 people will receive an extra $45 in product for FREE
  • 1 will receive an additional $250 Shopping Spree!

Best Catch Ever

As promised yesterday, here is another great set for masculine cards. The Best Catch Ever is perfect for those folks that love to fish. Check out these wonderful cards made with the set.

This first one uses Night of Navy and Crumb Cake – two colors…. so striking…

It’s one of the things I love about a monochromatic card. They don’t require a lot of supplies, but pack a wow like this one does.

Here’s another card that has added black to the mix, this time the combination of colors is Pretty Peacock and Old Olive.

It uses our High Seas 3D Embossing Folder (149577) to add the feel of water. And yes that is our Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon (149751) peeking out from behind the Old Olive layer adding a bit more texture. I just love the different ways you can use this ribbon!

And how about this card done in nature inspired colors?

Early Espresso, Night of Navy and Mossy Meadow make this a great card for our guys.

And check out these cards too

You can color this guy all kinds of ways to suit your choice. It’s one of the things I love about stamping.

And this final card actually uses a real fish hook as part of it’s focal point which I just love

along with the Crackle Paint Background stamp (148755/148752) to add an out doors feel to it.

Cool right?

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Best Catch (148598)

Accessories: Catch of the Day Dies (148815)

Fun with Geared Up Garage

Masculine cards are always fun to make and Stampin’ Up! has given us a great option for those men in our lives with the Geared Up Garage stamp set.

Check out these fun cards using the set. This first card uses our Brick & Mortar 3d Embossing Folder (149643) as a back drop and the gears are die cut in our Copper Foil (142020)

And how about our Buffalo Check Background (147797/151372) done in Terracotta Tile?

And this next card uses the die cut gears to sponge around – creating this great negative background look. How cool is that?

And how about the classic color combo of Real Red, Basic Gray & Black for this card?

And here is another card using Real Red this time teamed up with Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake.

Great cards for the men in our lives! I can’t pick a favorite can you? Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think?

Then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more masculine cards with you.

High Tide

Free as a Bird Thank You

I’ve become quite the bird watcher over the years here in Clarkesville, enjoying the hunt for just the right bird in my book as I learned about them. My son built some bluebird boxes years ago and they now dot our fence line around our house – we’ve been lucky enough to have at least a couple of them being used each season that I can watch as I sip coffee in the morning through out the nesting season.

So today’s card was created using the Bird Ballard Suite of products found on pages 90-92 of the 2019 Annual Catalog. The suite is filled with wonderful water colored images and soft colors which is right up my alley.

And since this set is perfect for coloring I reached for my Stampin’ Blends and started to create my own little bluebird.

While I was at it I figured I’d whip up a tutorial for you – so I’ve made a quick video and PDF so you can make some too if you want.
