Apothecary Art

This is a card that I made when this set was first released in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I'm so glad this set carried over.

Although the matching framelits are only supposed to be used to cut one sheet of cardstock at a time, I did cut through 2 layers of cardstock and a layer of Designer Series Paper with out any trouble.

I don't remember all the details of this card and I sold it a long time ago.  I need to start posting my cards BEFORE I sell them.

Thanks for looking,

A Stepped Up Version of Yesterday's Card

Here is a "stepped up" version of the card I posted yesterday. I just made a few changes. I embossed the background, I attached a bow (made with my husband's fabulous bow maker), and I added some glitter to the sprinkles.

Bring A Buddy Night

Thursday evening I had my first "Bring a Buddy" event and it was a lot of fun even though I was pretty nervous. What I did was ask my "old customers" (ladies who had been customers of mine for a while) to bring a friend. These friends could be new stampers or just new to me stampers. And I got a little bit of both. It had been a while since I have taught brand new stampers and I was definitely out of practice, but they did great.

I made this a "no sales pressure" night by not taking any orders. I just wanted the newbies to enjoy themselves and learn a little bit about Stampin' Up without feeling pressured to buy something. Hopefully they enjoyed themselves and some have already expressed an interest in joining clubs or taking my classes.

Here is one of the cards that we made. I tried to keep it simple yet cute. I'm sure you have noticed the ink mark on my card. I decided not to redo this card to show others that your card doesn't have to be perfect.

To thank my customers for bringing a friend, my husband made them their choice of a Bow Maker or a Hanging Scrapbook holder. I really do appreciate my "old customers", some who have been with me since I became a demonstrator 7 years ago. Thanks again ladies!

Betsy's Blossoms

I really like the bold images in this new set Betsy's Blossoms.
I paired it with two of the new in colors, Gumball Green and Primrose Petals. The stitched satin ribbon comes in all of the 2012-2013 In Colors. The Designer Series Paper is from the Patio Party pack.

I have been trying to get into the habit of decorating the inside of the cards a
little bit also. Just a small piece of Designer Series Paper can really add a lot to the inside of the card.

New 2012-2013 Stampin Up Catalog Product

Here is one of the first cards that I made with my Stampin Up preorder product. The image comes from the new stamp set Layered Labels. I then die cut the image using the new Apothecary Accents Framelits die. I stamped the image a second time and hand cut the oval part and attached it with Stampin Dimensionals. The colors used were Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze and Soft Suede.
