Wouldn't this card be great to give to or receive from a friend? It's one that Sheila, one of my team members, made for our quarterly meeting and shoebox swap. It features two new In Colors, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo. She paired them with Perfect Plum to create a warm and welcoming card using the new My Friend stamp set. It's on page 139 of the new Idea Book & Catalog (you can click on the link in the left margin to view it online). Sheila also used her Beautiful Wings embosslit for the Big Shot and Bird Builder punch.
Speaking of Bird Builder punch, I know a lot of you own that punch and now Stampin' Up! has a stamp set that coordinates with it to add detail to the punched image. It's called Language of Friendship ($15.95 for wood mount, $11.95 for clear mount) and is on page 101 of the new catalog. There's also an image that coordinates with the Boho Blossoms punch as well.
I had earned some free sets through my efforts during Sale-A-Bration and I waited for the release of the new catalog to redeem them. I still haven't finalized my order yet, and I need to within the next week, or lose the opportunity. It's just so hard to choose!
Stampin' Up! is having a July-only promotion for those who want to join the Stampin' Up! demonstrator family. They have released a special starter kit for only $99. It has a value of $185, plus it comes with a bonus Christmas box project that is valued at $40. To view what you get, click HERE. If you'd like to discuss the opportunity with me, I promise to answer your questions as fully and honestly as possible. I'd love to have a new team member at my next team meeting in September!
