TAMARA's SKETCH AND SOME NEW SU! GOODIES!

Okay, first things first - it is Thursday and that means another sketch challenge over at Tamara's - whoohoo! I have to say, I love all of her sketches, but this one is a favorite and I can see myself using it again! I used my Fresh Cuts stamp set which has already become a favorite, I mean it is sooo much fun to play with! And, the card was fun to put together!! So, make sure you get on over there and see what the rest of the DT did this week - they outdid themselves and their cards are just gorgeous! And, how about giving it a shot yourself? Make sure you upload the link on Tamara's site so we can all come and check it all out! I know I love to see what everyone comes up with and have seen some beautiful creations and I am sure the rest of the DT feels the same way! This card is pretty self-explanatory so I will leave you with the recipe and if you have any questions, you know you just need to ask!


Card Recipe: (all products SU! except for the pearls)
Paper - Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Naturals Ivory card stock, Ginger Blossoms Designer Series Paper
Stamp sets - Fresh Cuts
Inks - Cameo Coral Classic Stampin' pad and stampin' write marker
Accessories - Ticket Corner Punch, Mat Stack and paper piercer, Groovy Guava Double stitched ribbon, vintage eyelets, jumbo pewter eyelets, Crop-a-dile
Now, on to some exciting news that I should have already shared and did not - shame on me!!!! Stampin' Up! rolled out a new product line - DECOR ELEMENTS! It is totally AWESOME, I love it, I have ordered mine already and customers can order their very own starting July 1st - whoohoo! So, what does it look like? Well, check out the catalog here and see for yourself!! It is so dang beautiful and versatile and oh, I can't wait to decorate with mine! Many of them coordinate with stamp sets we have such as the Baroque Motifs set - so you can also stamp with these to make a fabulously decorated room in your very own style! I am already planning on doing some things in my family room, stamp room, daughters room.....you get what I mean, right -teehee!! So, because I am so very excited about this new line of goodies AND we are heading into a new year, I would like to offer a special to those of you who have been sitting on the fence saying, man, I want to be a demonstrator! Want your own business doing what you love? Just want to join to get your stamps at a wonderful discount? Contact me and I will help you out! Join my team - I promise you will have LOADS of fun! And, because it IS the end of the stampin' year, I will throw in a FREE stamp set of YOUR choice out of the catalog - yep, any one you want! The only thing better than stamps is FREE stamps - LOL! So, contact me by Saturday if you are interested, and let's get you started on a wonderful new stampin' adventure!
