Forever Lovely Sneak Peek & 15th Anniversary Special

Hi Stamping Friends!
It's a special day for me!  Today is my 15th Anniversary of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!  Woohoo!  I'm celebrating with an exclusive 15% off promotion!  See all the details below!

My "Joining Stampin' Up!" Story—Way back on December 11, 2003, I joined the team by mailing in my Starter Kit order form with a $199 check. Yes, that's right…there was not online option like there is today, we had to mail it in and WAIT for approval!  And the cost of the Starter Kit was twice the price of the current $99 Starter Kit.  You could only select a few ink pad colors and maybe a stamp set or two and everything else in the kit was determined for you, unlike today's totally customizable kit.  

I found out about Stampin' Up! through co-worker who invited me to a party. I learned about the "poppin' pastels" technique and how to add eyelets and use Dimensionals!  I was in love with it immediately and purchased some products to create some hand-stamped Christmas cards. After creating 20 holiday cards with my Baroque Burgundy and Forest Foliage coordinating cardstock & ink, along with my first Christmas stamp set…I knew I would be wanting more!  I figured I could sign up for the discount and maybe do a few workshops a month to pay for my hobby.  So, I contacted the demonstrator I had met and she dropped off the forms & information I needed to sign up.  Funny, after I became part of her team, she ended up dropping about two weeks later and I never saw her again.  But, here I am…15 years later!

So much has changed over the coarse of 15 years, with Stampin' Up! and in my life!  Never in a million years would I have thought that that one little workshop would bring so much creativity, friendships, compensation and JOY in to my life!  My love for the products and the company has grown every year and I can't imagine what my life would be like without Stampin' Up! and my stamping friends in it!  As the Shelli Gardner, the co-founder of the company always says…it's so much more than stamps, ink & paper!  Here's to the next 15 years of stamping!

Forever Lovely Sneak Peek Cards
I'm taking a little break from holiday cards today to show you a sneak peek of some items from the brand new All My Love suite of products, coming in the Occasions Catalog on January 3, 2019!  The items can be used for Valentine's Day, weddings, anniversaries or just a lovely thinking of you card!
Lovely day - lovely 1
Background Basics—I started with a Lovely Lipstick card base and adhered a 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" layer of Flirty Flamingo on the card front with SNAIL adhesive.
Lovely Stamping—I stamped the Forever Lovely sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink onto the right side of a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the pretty Forever Lovely flower image in Flirty Flamingo ink above the greeting in full-strength for one flower and stamped-off for the other. Next, I adhered a 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper onto the left side of that panel.  
Lovely day - lovely 2
Finishing Touches—I tied some of the 1/8" sheer Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack around the stamped layer and tied it into a knot. That layer is popped up with Dimensionals onto the card front.  I finished by adding a few Artisan Pearls in the Grapefruit Grove and Petal Pink shades.
This is definitely a #SimpleStamping card that you can mass produce easily to have on hand to brighten someone's day!  Let's try another version…
Lovely day - balmy 1
Two Cool—My second version uses a different pattern of All My Love DSP.  I loved the Balmy Blue accents, so I chose that color as my card base.  The mat layer is Lovely Lipstick.
Lovely Stamping—The background layer is stamped all in Lovely Lipstick ink with one flower stamped-off.
Lovely day - balmy 2
Finishing Touches—I added a 3-3/4" x 1/2" strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock to the background, then tied some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the layers.  I finished with a few Basic Pearl Jewels floating around the sentiment.
