An Occasion to Celebrate

Need a little spring in your step (or in the mailbox to a friend?) Try making this card: 
(Origial card by Jackie B)

There isn’t just one season in which we give gifts and send cards…we celebrate special events all year long~ like the love of family, the kindness of a neighbor, the life of a friend. The Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up! (NEW 1-6-15) helps you make every occasion a celebration! All of the stamps and Thinlits on the card above come from the new Occasions Catalog:

And as long as we are celebrating, 
let’s SALE-A-BRATE with FREE STUFF when you Shop, Host or Join!

My calendar fills quickly, so call to book a party (801-376-8685), or you can shop online. Also check out my class schedule…new classes added often.

Another Milestone Celebration

My friend Kristi just passed her $100,000 career sales with Stampin’ Up! and I wanted to celebrate her great accomplishment!

Kristi likes purple (and sparkles), so I created a Rich Razzleberry swing card using the Stampin’ Up! Label Card Thinlits, made a Faux Diamond covered quote from the Feel Goods stamp set (can you see the sparkles over the words?) and a co-ordinating tube for her 100 Grand Candy Bar using the Label Love set and Artisan Label punch:

Here’s what it looks like when you open the swing card (a silver glimmer paper YAY!) and it has another flap over the place where I wrote her a message:

Some things I love about Kristi:

  • She’s always got bling on. And you’ll never see her in public in sweats 🙂 She’s always dressed nicely and looks fabulous. 
  • Her paper crafting designs are always very detailed and perfectly created!
  • She’s a loyal friend
  • Her optimism is contagious!
  • You can give her an assignment and she follows through. Dependable and thorough.

If you aren’t familiar with the Faux Diamond Technique, IT IS SO EASY! I like to do it on a small focal point of a card. Here are basic instructions:

1. Stamp image on card stock and let it dry
2. Press front of stamped card stock into Versamark Pad (102283), covering completely
3. Sprinkle Iridescent Ice embossing powder (101930) over ink-covered card stock. Shake off excess powder
4. Heat embossing powder with Heat Tool (129053) until set. See the diamonds sparkle!

As always, you can order supplies to try this technique at home from my Stampin’ Store.
