Hi Friends! I am so happy that so many of you enjoyed yesterday’s “Floating Image” technique and video. And thank you SO MUCH for all the sweet comments for my 17th anniversary with Stampin’ Up! Your emails, youtube comments and FB messages of kind words touched my heart, friends. I truly don’t know where those 17 years have gone but I will tell you that I am so grateful I made the decision to buy that starter kit and become a demonstrator. I had no idea where this journey would take me and how it would bring so many blessings and friendships into my life. Joining the Stampin’ Up! family has easily been one of the very best choices I’ve ever made.
Stampin’ Up! has recently announced to all Demonstrators that our Stampin’ Trimmer, Big Shot and the accessories for these two product tools will not carry over into the new Annual Catalogue.
Some current dies and embossing folders, as well as brand NEW ones, WILL be in the 2019/2020 Annual Catalogue!
➨ If you’re a new stamper and/or demonstrator and don’t yet a cutting tool for your cardstock, you’re going to need one. I personally LOVE our Stampin’ Trimmer and I have NEVER had any issues with it. I’d encourage you to purchase our Stampin Trimmer while it’s still available and be sure to order an extra set or two of the blades.
➨ Due to the cost of doing business, the economy, etc, sometimes Stampin’ Up! has to add a slight price increase to some of our products. To give you the opportunity to stock up and save now, I wanted to let you know some of the items that are going to be going up in price slightly, as of June 4th:
⭐Packages of card stock (50 cent increase)
⭐Medium size envelopes (75 cent increase)
⭐Emboss powders ($1.50 increase)
⭐Versamark ink pad (75 cent increase)
⭐Mist Refill ($1.25 increase)
⭐Stampin’ Scrub ($1 increase)
⭐Paper Grid ($1 increase)
⭐Foil Sheets ($1.25 increase)
⭐Dazzling Diamonds Glitter ($1.50 increase)
⭐Stampin’ Sponges ($2.25 increase)
⭐Note Cards & Envelopes (75 cent increase)
⭐Journalling Pens ($1.50 increase)
If you need to stock up and want to save some money, now would be a good time to do so, before these prices go into effect. By the way, some products have actually gone DOWN in price with the new catalogue! The items listed above are the main price difference though, and are also the products that I’m stocking up on too! Be sure to let me know if you have any questions. Just pop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
So let’s get onto today’s card, shall we? Or cards, I should say. I made two, using the “Floating Image” technique. I told ya I’d be addicted to this for a while! If you missed yesterday’s post, scroll down to check it out, or click here, and you’ll also see the video there too. For today’s cards I wanted to use the Daisy Punch for the floating images and it worked really well.
The stamp sets I used for the sentiments are from “Thankful Thoughts” and “Very Vintage”. I also coloured the pearls for the centre of each daisy with my Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Marker.
A little splash of gold in the centre of the flower and a pearl was all this card needed to add a bit of shazaam. I love the simplicity of this card.
It’s hard to tell from the photos, but I also gave both cards a spritz of Champagne Shimmer Mist Paint (mixed with 70% rubbing alcohol), so they are sparkly and so pretty (in real life).
→Grapefruit Grove: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (after it’s run through the Big Shot with the Rectangle die you’ll have the frame and the inside piece, which will make two cards.)
Thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you were inspired by today’s project and that you’ll visit again soon!
