This is an exciting week. I’m getting ready for Stampin’ Up!’s local on-stage event. Hundreds of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators will be meeting in Milwaukee Wi for the Midwest local event. There is a portion of the day spent discussing the business end of our fun jobs but what is really a blast is getting together with other demonstrators. There are a few roosters in our hen house but for the most part we are chatty women all going a mile a minute. We have lots of laughs and we spend time creating projects from the new catalog. That’s right . We get the new catalog ahead of anyone else. We also get a period to preorder products from the new catalog. I can’t wait. Another part of the on-stage event is swaps. We make samples of cards and swap them with other demonstrators. It’s a great way to get new ideas. I was going to do today’s card as my swap but my hubby, who’s opinion I totally trust, thought it wasn’t enough pizzazz so I did a different card for the swap, I still love this card.
I started with a piece of retiring CS, Dapper Denim as the base card. I used the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with another piece of retiring CS, Flirty Flamingo. Adhered to the embossed piece of Flirty Flamingo CS is another strip of Dapper Denim CS. I used Very Vanilla CS and the Layering Circles framelits to cut out the bases for the images from the We Must Celebrate stamp set. I did cut these cute little creatures apart from the row they were originally in so that I could put them in different positions. I stamped them in Memento Black ink and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. Take a peek and let me know what you think. I appreciate you taking time to stop by. I am a people person and I love what I do so your interest is very important to me.
PAWS TO PONDER
Hugs and happy stamping, MB
