Confetti Celebration Simple Birthday Card

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Join My Team/ Mojo Monday

Hey stampers! Its seems like most of the cards I've been creating lately are for birthdays. Today's sample, Confetti Celebration Simple Birthday Card, is easy to put together and Stampin' Up!'s Large Letters make personalization a breeze! I love our Lemon Lime Twist In Color, especially with this Night of Navy Background.

Did you know that you can get these for free along with a ton of other stuff. How?

The CRAZY INSANE sign up special that runs only through July 31. Sign up for $99 and you get $125.00 worth of merchandise, at LEAST $100 worth of business supplies (if you want to try it out – includes eight brand new catalogs!), an Essentials Kit with five terrific tools valued at $52 and a sneak peek stamp set from the Holiday Catalog – worth $20. It costs you more NOT to get this deal than it does to get it! 🙂

If you do grab up this offer, you will be an official demonstrator on August 1 which means…………wait for it………….…………you get to preorder available products from the Holiday Catalog ON August 1 right along with all the other demos!

Yes, I have had a lot of people sign up – the deal is just too TIGGERIFFIC to pass up . In case you are wondering, NO, you do NOT have to start a business if you don’t want to.  Many people sign up  “just for the discount”  (did I mention that you get 20% off everything in the catalog as long as you are a demo?)  but decide later to actually run a business..  I was actually one of those “kit-nappers” but now I am a proud Stampin' Up! business owner and I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Grab this deal before it goes away at midnight tonight!

Coffee Café Bundle ala Pool Party

Announcements/ Big Shot/ Join My Team/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Videos

Hey stampers! We are making changes to the blog and have run into a couple of snags. Didn't get to post yesterday but enjoy today's Coffee Café Bundle ala Pool Party sample! One of my favorite color combos is brown and blue. Stampin' Up! has several of these tones from which to choose, but Pool Party and Early Espresso are still two of my favorites!

This is a simple card, but the coordinating Designer Series Paper and Ribbon certainly add the “pretty” factor!

Watch short video that shows you some fun tips and tricks for using this bundle!

Below I've included instructions, including cutting dimensions, for today's project. You can order any of the products used for this project by clicking a picture below.

Supplies:

  • Stamp Sets: Coffee Cafe (143677)
  • Inks: Early Espresso (126974), Crumb Cake (126975) & Pool, Party (126982) Classic Stampin’ Pads
  • Paper: Crumb Cake (120953), Early Espresso (119686) & Whisper White (100730) Card stock; Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (144155)
  • Accessories: 5/8” Burlap Ribbon (141487), Soft Sky 3/8” Classic Weave Ribbon (144160)
  • Other: SNAIL Adhesive (104332) OR Fast Fuse Adhesive (129026), Big Shot (143263), Coffee Cups Framelits (143745), Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372), Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122234), Stampin’ Trimmer (126889), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

Measurements:

  • Crumb Cake: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored and folded at 4-1/4”
  • Coffee Break DSP: 5-1/4” x 4” (make sure that you cut it so that the chevron pattern runs down the front of the card)
  • Early Espresso: 3-1/2” x 3-1/2”
  • Whisper White: 2 x 5-1/4” x 4” (one for the inside of the card, and the second for stamping/die cutting)
  • Burlap and Soft Sky Ribbons: 5” for each piece

Instructions:

    1. Using the Pool Party ink, stamp the wood grain cup image on Whisper White cardstock. Leaving space between the images, stamp the cup lid on the same piece of cardstock, using Crumb Cake ink. Stamp the frame image using Crumb Cake ink, and the sentiment inside of the stamped frame using Early Espresso ink.
    2. Using your Big Shot and the Coffee Cups Framelits, die cut the cup, lid and wrapper. Using the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Framelits, die cut a circle from the Early Espresso card stock.
    3. Glue the wrapper to the cup, and the lid to the cup using SNAIL or Fast Fuse adhesive.
    4. Wrap the Soft Sky ribbon around the Coffee Break DSP, about 1” above the bottom of the paper, and glue on the back. Wrap the Burlap ribbon overtop, leaving about 2/3” of the Soft Sky showing on the bottom, adhering them on the back. *Note* Fast Fuse is a good adhesive for this so that you’re sure that they don’t come off.
    5. Using your Paper Trimmer, cut about 1/2” off of one side of the Early Espresso circle. Adhere the circle to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the stamped coffee cup to the Early Espresso circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    6. Stamp the coffee bean image 3 times in the bottom right corner of the other piece of Whisper White cardstock. Glue to the inside of the card.

For every $50 you spend July 1-31 (before tax and shipping) you'll get a $5 Bonus Days Coupon that you can use during August! Shop now.

Speaking of cards, I'm expecting some fun postcards from Thailand in my mailbox soon! Several of my demonstrator friends are either there or enroute for the annual Incentive Trip. I qualified for this trip but due to the extremely long flight and my hubby's back issues, we had to pass on this one. I know everyone will have a fabulous time. Stampin' Up! always spoils on these trips!

Stamp Slave Dave and I have already qualified for the 2018 trip to Alaska; we can't wait to cruise the Inside Passage and see the sights above! We went on the 2011 trip to Alaska and that has been the one we've enjoyed most out of all the trips we've been blessed to achieve.

Incentive trips, lifetime friendships, product pre-orders, income, free stamps, creative conferences…do any of these make your ears perk up? If so, you might find this is the perfect time to start your own Stampin' Up! business and get this new Carols of Christmas stamp set for free!

That's right, for only $99 plus tax (and you pay zip, zero, nada for shipping!) you get to choose $125 of any products in our catalog. During the month of July,  you also receive the following stamping essentials kit:

118485D Block – you get 2 of these, one to keep and one to share with a friend!
130148Grid Paper
103579Paper Snips
104332SNAIL Adhesive
102300Bone Folder

I honestly don't know of another business opportunity where only $99 gets you started. Just like Santa on Christmas Eve, this promotion will disappear on August 1st so don't miss it! If you have any questions, please do give me a shout.

p.s. if you enjoyed this marbled Hello Friend project, here are two more samples using the new In Color collection.

Christmas is Coming in July!

Announcements/ Holidays / Special Days/ Join My Team/ Paper crafting

Christmas is coming in July and I want you to get the gift!

I'd like to ask a favor. Please read this post all the way to the end and watch the short video. If you see something that might fit for you, let's chat!

Have you ever asked yourself if the Stampin' Up! Opportunity is right for YOU? If you've been involved in papercrafting you have most likely been to a Stampin' Up! party or class and maybe have even been asked if you'd like to become a demonstrator. I'll bet you have no clue what a “demonstrator” does.

We have an awesome promotion starting on July 1 and I would hate for you to miss it if the Stampin' Up! Opportunity IS right for you. The paper Snips and SNAIL Adhesive are only two of the “Christmas in July” gifts that come with the Starter Kit during the month of July.

The Starter Kit already includes:

  • $125 of any catalog product for $99 plus tax
  • FREE shipping
  • $65 in business supplies

From July 1 – 31 Santa Claus will also be bringing a FREE Essentials Gift Pack including Paper Snips, SNAIL Adhesive, Grid Paper, two D Blocks (one for you and one for a stamping friend!), and a Bone Folder. That’s an added value of $52. The Carols of Christmas Stamp Set from the holiday catalog will also be included ($20 value).

I've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for 15 years, the last ten of which I have been a “career” demonstrator. What's that you might ask?

As a career-minded demonstrator, I am in this to MAKE MONEY, not just SPEND MONEY. When I first joined Stampin' Up!, it was purely to get the discount. There is nothing wrong with that; I have lots of “hobby” demonstrators on my team. But the truth is, if this is your hobby I would bet more money is going out the door than is coming in. Again, if this works for your situation that's great. That is exactly what I did for the first few years. After awhile though I found myself wondering if I could really make money with this. I saw other demonstrators making money, having fun with their customers and teams, setting their own hours, going on great trips, and so much more. If they could do this, why couldn't I?

I started asking questions and getting more information. Within a short time, I was actually MAKING money! My husband started paying attention and when I earned our first incentive trip, he was sold! He has actually been my business partner now for years and is a big part of my successful stamping business.

I absolutely LOVE what I do and today I'd like to share a little bit about my team, Girls, INK,  and see how we might be a fit for you and your needs.

Now…one last thing…watch this short video about one of our awesome Stampin' Up! events.

OK, I've just got one question. If you love to have all the latest in papercrafting supplies, would like to make extra money, meet new friends, , and set your own hours, don't you think it would be worth an investment of $99?

Let's chat soon so you can celebrate Christmas in July!
