My it’s been a busy couple of weeks! I can’t believe we are half way through April too! I have been preparing my roomie gifts, swaps, and club projects the past few weeks. I made this card for a On Stage Swap and had to use it for club too! I can let you in on a secret….the Beauty Abounds stamp set and dies are carrying over!
I have to say Highland Heather is one of my favorite colors right now! I used the Lace 3-D embossing folder to make the Basic Grey add more texture to the card. I added some of the bubbles using Highland Heather and I used Smoky Slate for the grainy stamp. The butterflies were stamped with Gorgeous Grape and cut out with the Die Cutting Machine. Of course I had to add Wink of Stella to this card….it just called out for it!
I love the Silver Baker’s Twine-it helps add some dimension and whimsy to the sentiment that I used from A Big Thank You stamp set.
We had an amazing time at On Stage San Antonio! I always enjoy spending time with my team, seeing familiar faces/friends, meeting new friends, and seeing all the NEW products!!! The best part was watching my dear friend (and downline) attend her first On Stage! Plus-she promoted to Silver the week before! I am so proud of her and what she brings to inspire others!
Now down to business! It’s time to say “goodbye” to some products to make room for the new ones! So, here is the link for the Idea Book & Catalog 2018-2019 retiring products. Be sure to get your IN COLOR reinkers, paper, and ink pads soon! Those go first every time!
If you would like to order just a few items, here is April’s Host Code PH34U7UW. Be sure to reap the host rewards for yourself with orders of $150 or more! Or, you can join my team and order off of the Pre-Order in a couple weeks! $99 plus tax for $125 in any current product! You will have until September 2019 to meet your quarterly minimum too!
Here is another card idea for the Abstract Impressions set! This set has yielded at least 4 cards already! I had to try out the Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape! I paired it to color the stems with Granny Apple Green and Lemon Lime Twist. The results are stunning!
This card was made for my Annual New Catalog Open House/Customer Appreciation this past weekend. There were goodie bags for those who attended, lots of retired items for sale (I can post a list if you are interested), tons of samples using new products, and wonderful friendships celebrated! It was a great turn out! And a dear friend took the plunge and joined my team!
My 8 year old begged to make a card with us and I was thrilled with his results! I didn’t help him one bit! So proud!!
One of my favorite things to do at Stampin’ Up! events is to look at the display boards! The ideas that others come up with really helps get the creative juices flowing! The above card uses Watercolor Wonder DSP with an adorable flower made with the new Spiral Flower Bigz die.
The Happy Watercolor is a great set to get the watercolor look!
This is a great card using the Language of Love stamp set. We all got this set as an all attendee give away! So cute!!
I am really started to like the Retro Fresh suite!

I just got back from Leadership in Houston! Wow-it was fabulous!! I attended my very first Manager’s reception at the downtown Houston Aquarium! The exhibits were beautiful! We rode some rides, pet/fed some sting rays, and had wonderful food! Here are a few pictures!
Here is me and my upline Barbara Raffman enjoying some food and rides!
One of the pretty exhibits! I wish all my pictures were this clear!
Here is a scuba diver that held this sign for us for an hour! It also had the Stampin’ Up! logo on the back!
One of the many appetizer stations! I hate to see what a full dinner looks like! We were so full with our light appetizers!
Finally, a close up of these friendly sting rays! So fun!!
I love how Stampin’ Up! spoils us demos! Check back for more pictures and projects!
