Stampin’ Up! You’re Sublime for a toadally awesome card!

Sometimes light and fun is just what is needed. With the Stampin’ Up! You’re Sublime Stamp Set you’ll be making greeting cards for the lighter side. Watch my video tutorial to see how to make a clean and simple card that is toadally awesome with the oh-so-cute You’re Sublime toad (looks like a frog to me) stamp.

If the video is not displaying properly, watch my You’re Sublime clean and simple card tutorial here.

Stampin' Up! You're Sublime Stamp SetSo very happy that Stampin’ Up! had made available the Thick Whisper White Cardstock in 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheets. We had it available for the Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes, but it was very much needed for the popular clean and simple card bases.

It’s an added bonus that it’s better for watercoloring too. Watercolor Paper is designed for watercoloring, but there times you want the crisp white of Whisper White.

It was said in the video tutorial, but how perfect is it the imperfect polka dots of the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder to coordinate with the also slightly mis-shaped dots on the toad? It’s just another example of the beautiful coordination you get with Stampin’ Up! stamps and accessories.

Which, of course, includes the cardstock and ink. The colors coordinate instead of clash which is pleasing to the eye.

All the products to make my toadally awesome card are pictured below and linked into my online store.

Place your August 2015 Stampin’ Up! order in my online store, and I’ll send you my handmade You’re Sublime as a thank you gift!

It’s a clean and simple Kinda Eclectic card

Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic Clean and Simple CardThe Stampin’ Up! Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set makes it easy to make clean and simple cards that are quite attractive.

You can see just from the four stamp images why this has been such a popular stamp set. Add in the two butterfly stamps that coordinate with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and Elegant Butterfly Punch, and you’ve got one fantastic stamp set!

Earlier this week a customer asked if I thought she’d like the new Delightful Dijon from the 2015-2017 In Colors. Without hesitation, I told her she will.

When first released, we knew we’d like it for our handmade fall cards. But after putting together 10 unique Delightful Dijon color combinations for my 2015-2017 In Color Combinations e-book, it was clear this is a color that can and will be used and used often. And for much more than fall cards.

My clean and simple Kinda Eclectic card is using one of the In Color Combinations. The starburst is stamped in Blushing Bride ink. The beautiful leaves in Delightful Dijon ink. The “A little kindness goes a long way” greeting in Rich Razzleberry ink. The small circles were also stamped with Delightful Dijon. But only after stamping on a scrap piece of paper first. This provides the same color with less intensity to allow the leaves and greeting to better stand out.

Definitely not a fall card.

Were you bummed when you couldn’t order the 2015-2017 In Color Cards to add to your Color Coach? A lot of my customers and I sure were. Just looking at the two color combinations for each color could help you out of a color rut. My Color Coach was always close by. Actually surprised I didn’t wear the color off the cards for all the times it was used.

2015-2017 In Color Combinations

If Stampin’ Up! wasn’t going to provide us with color combinations for the new In Colors, then I would. To my racks of cardstock I went. Trying this with that. Some that sounded good were rejected. Some that sounded like they’d never work some were real winners. After a lot of mixing and matching, thumbs up, thumbs down, some oh, yucks and some oh, yeahs, what emerged was 50 unique color combinations for the 2015-2017 In Colors put together into an e-book! Ten each for Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder. It’s like the In Color Cards on steroids!

Stampin' Up! Butterflies Framelits Dies

Do you like beautiful ribbon? A customer of mine is a ribbon afficionado. She seeks out the high quality ribbon from shops all over the country and out. Once experiencing the quality of Stampin’ Up! ribbon, she just couldn’t get enough! She said the price is very fair for the quality of it.

So, when you can get Stampin’ Up! ribbon on sale, go for it! This week several ribbons are on sale. I set out to make a card using one of them and another product on sale. The ribbon is the Melon Mambo 3/8 Stitched Satin Ribbon.

See the silver doily? It’s one of the two designs from the Metallic Foil Doilies. Silver and gold doilies. This week they’re 30% off with the new Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals.

The beautiful Melon Mambo Cardstock die-cut butterfly resting upon the silver doily is from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies. The patterned paper is from the Neutral Designer Series Paper Stack.

Like the font of the birthday greeting? It’s from the Watercolor Wishes Stamp Set that is exclusive to the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit. It sure has some very nice greetings.

The Weekly Deals with the discounted Stampin’ Up! ribbons is only for one week, if supplies last that long. Stampin’ Up! allocates at least 1000 of each at the sale price. But, as you know, there are a lot of us that love Stampin’ Up! products and a sale. It just doesn’t get better than Stampin’ Up! on sale!

Thank you for helping me earn this honor!

Founder's Circle Last Splash Banner

A big, inky hug to everyone who has chosen to order their Stampin’ Up! products through my online store and over the phone with me! And a big, inky hug for those who chose to start their stamping businesses with me by joining Stampin’ Up! as one of the members of my Scattered Stampers team!

Through a combination of both, I’ve earned my spot in the top 100 U.S. Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators for the 2015 Founder’s Circle.

It’s bittersweet because is the very last Founder’s Circle there will ever be. After earning it in 2013 and being completely spoiled rotten, it was something I hoped to earn every year. After all, I’ll take all the spoiling I can get. :)

I’m so grateful to have earned it three years in a row and will relish this last vacation. It’s so much fun to meet up with the friends you’ve made and make new friends. Did I mention the spoiling?

Founder’s Circle was an incredible bonus for doing my job well. The excellent customer service I offer was never about the hopes of earning an honor, it’s because I honor and value you. I will continue to work to earn your business.

One sweet customer sent this to me over the weekend:

“Somehow in this high-tech, low touch world, you excel at HIGH touch, keeping it relatable to “real people.”  – Beverly from OR

Thank you!
