Have A “BIG” Card Party & Earn Hostess Rewards!

Too Cool Happenings!


Hi Stamping Friends!

Have you ever really checked out at those "BIG" Stampin' Up! Card Kits on pages 196-198 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog?  These kits are an AMAZING value and definitely worth a look!

Today, I'd like to share with you why I think they are so amazing, AND show you how easy it is to turn these "BIG" kits into HOSTESS DOLLARS for YOU!

Let me explain!

Why Are These "BIG" Card Kits So Amazing?  

  • Tons of Cards In Each Kit—You get cards for a variety of occasions including envelopes!
  • Just Add Ink & Adhesive—All the card stock and embellishments you need are included!
  • Simply A Great Value—Lots of cards at a super price, plus a stamp set to use on future projects!

Whole kit & caboodle

Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit—This was the first fabulous "BIG" Card Kit Stampin' Up! offered and it was a hit from the get-go!  It includes all the pre-printed card stock & embellishments, plus a 7-piece stamp set, to make 20 all-occasion cards with envelopes—all for only $29.95! 

I had a chance to put this kit together last Fall and it was quick, easy, and fabulous!  See all the cards up-close in my Everyday Occasions Sunday Showcase post.

Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit—Stampin' Up! recently added a second "BIG" Card Kit, which includes all the pre-printed card stock & embellishments, plus a 3-piece stamp set, to make 20 cards with envelopes.  This kit is only $19.95!  I haven't tried this one yet, but you can click on the product link above to see photos of the finished cards.

Happenings - ensemble

Happenings Card Kit & Says It All Stamps—When you combine pre-printed card stock and embellishments of the Happenings Kit ($14.95) with the coordinating Says It All clear mount stamp set ($10.95), you can create 15 lovely cards with envelopes at an affordable price!  I put this kit together a few weeks ago and I'll be showing the cards in more detail on an upcoming blog post.

Who Would LOVE These "BIG" Card Kits?!

  • Any Cardmaker! Keep them on hand for creating quick & easy cards for last-minute occasions.
  • New Stampers!  Since it includes all the components, it is perfect for anyone wanting to try stamping for the first time with very little investment. 
  • Tweens & Teens!  I know girls, and even boys, would love putting these together with family, friends or on their own!  It's a fun and creative activity!
  • Activity Groups!  Try it with Girl Scouts, youth groups, church groups, retirement centers, cards-for-troops events, fundraisers, birthday parties…I could go on and on!
  • Any Crafting Friend!  It's a great price-point for holiday & birthday gifts for crafters!

Have A "BIG" Card Party & Earn Hostess Rewards!

As you can see, there's wide-appeal for these "BIG" Card Kits!  Recently, my stamping friend Kim Vogel shared a brilliant idea for how stampers can use these easy-to-assemble card kits for a no-fuss, instant stamping party, and earn Hostess Dollars to spend, too! 

Here's How It Works!

  • Decide On A Kit  Select any one of the three "BIG" Card Kits shown above.
  • Invite Friends!  Gather up 5-7 or more of your friends, co-workers, or group members.  The number of people you need will depend on which kit you want to create. See example scenarios below.
  • Purchase The Kits!  Have each of your friends purchase one of the "BIG" kits.  I'll open up a workshop order with a Hostess Code and they can order online using that code.
  • Earn Hostess Dollars!  All of the orders combine to earn at least $25 in Hostess Dollars for you!  Additional orders from you and your friends will increase your Hostess Rewards!
  • Plan A Stamping Day!  Schedule a time for everyone to get together, add some snacks, and have fun assembling your cards!

Example Scenarios To Earn $25+ Hostess Rewards:

  • Everyday Occasions Kit—You & 5 friends x $29.95 kit = $179.70 workshop.
  • Hip Hip Hooray Kit—You & 7 friends x $19.95 kit = $159.60 workshop.
  • Happenings Kit & Says It All Stamps—You & 5 friends x $25.90 combo = $155.40 workshop.
  • Too Cool Special: Happenings Kit & SNAIL Adhesive—You & 6 friends x $21.90 combo = $153.30 workshop.  I'll throw in the Says It All stamp set FREE as your Hostess gift, so you can use it during the party.

Party With or Without Me—If you're in the Fort Wayne, IN, area, I'd be happy to demonstrate the cards at your party and bring ink & adhesive to use! 

But, if you're not in the area, you don't even need me!  The kits have everything each stamper needs to make the projects, including photos and tips for assembly.  You would just have them buy or bring adhesive and have some coordinating inks available for them to use.  Add some snacks and you're good to go—Instant Party!

Host A "BIG" Card Party Fundraiser!

Let Me Help You Help Your Cause!  You gather up the participants for a fundraising event, they will purchase "BIG" Card Kits to assemble, and I'll donate a percentage of the workshop total for your non-profit organization!  The participants can keep the cards they make OR donate them.  You can earn Hostess Rewards from the order OR use them in a raffle or silent auction to raise additional money!  It's a Win-Win!  Contact me for more details.
