Stampin’ Up! Detailed Tags Dies in a card

It’s Sunday – and we had a full moon a couple of night ago – our daughter’s cats were carrying on at their house. We have a dog and it didn’t seem to bother him at all, thank goodness. So why do I mention this – not sure… perhaps it was remembering the many deer in our front yard last night and wondering if one had anything to do with the other. I don’t know.

Today’s card is made with the Detailed Tags Dies in the 2022-2023 Annual catalog – such a pretty set. I want to share a card that I made with this.

Stampin' Up! Detailed Tags Dies.1

Aren’t the colors pretty? Tahitian Tide & Orchid Oasis, with a bit of Rose Gold Specialty DSP. It’s obvious where I used the Rose Gold SDSP – the rose, and I removed some of the die cut pieces AND I fussy-cut around the outside. The butterfly I created by marking Basic White with Stampin’ Blends: Light Starry Sky and Light Daffodil Delight and die cut the image. It has two Glossy Dots Assortment in Pool Party on the butterfly.

Stampin' Up! Detailed Tags Dies.2

The centerpiece is the largest die in the Detailed Tags Die set and is die cut from from 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP – Tahitian Tide. I die cut another from Tahitian Tide card stock and adhered them together for strength before slipping a length of Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon through the openings. Once the rose and butterfly were attached with liquid glue I put dimensionals on the back and set it aside.

To the Thick Basic White card base I adhered a panel of Tahitian Tide (3 3/4 x 5). I then ran a slightly smaller Orchid Oasis panel through the Pretty Flowers embossing folder and added it to the Tahitian Tide. The dimensionals were already on the Detailed Tags Dies piece, so it was attached off-set as shown.

Stampin' Up! Detailed Tags Dies.3

For the inside I die cut a ‘spray’ with the Detailed Tags Dies in Rose Gold SDSP and added it to a piece of Basic White card stock. With that in place I stamped the sentiment: Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis. This panel was added to a Tahitian Tide and into the inside of the card – done!

Stampin' Up! Detailed Tags Dies.4

The envelope was easy enough… more 2022-2024 In color 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap and another sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis on the front. I like the contrast of the bright colors with white – it really makes it stand out.

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle Envelope Fun Fold

Hello again ~ Sat Sep 3, yikes the time is going f-a-s-t… Stampin’ Up has this super deal right now with Perfect Partners. What that means is they created dies to go with an existing stamp set and only during the month of September will they be available. Today I’m sharing some of the not so obvious dies in the bundle to create this fun envelope fold. Let’s take a peek.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Envelope Fun Fold.1

In this photo you can see the really fun apple blossoms and the wonderful branch. The flowers have intricate lines in each of the petals that really set them apart from other floral dies. And you can see there are two sizes of blossoms and the fun stamens as well. Gorgeousness. I added a single Glossy Dots Assortment in Daffodil Delight to the center of each blossom. And the branch is die cut from Soft Suede and has detail ridges and lines in it too – very delicate. The bottom front of this envelope fold is embossed in the Pretty Posies embossing folder. I like the added texture & pattern. The DSP is Gingham Cottage in Blushing Bride. I might note here that the smaller blossoms above were die cut from scrap of this DSP. The stamens were die cut from scrap of the Abigail Rose DSP used on the inside of the card. To make the v-shape for the distinctly ‘envelope’ card I used the Basic Borders Dies.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Envelope Fun Fold.2, inside

The inside shows more of the Apple Blossom Dies at the top with the sentiment banner – that stamp & die are from the Apple Blossom Bundle, and at the bottom with the beautiful scallop. What you see is a strip from the die cut, the bottom, and the very delicate upper scallop is the real deal. Both sentiments on this are from the Apple Blossom stamp set.

The upper portion of the envelope flap is covered in Abigail Rose DSP using a Smoky Slate piece to coordinate with the card base.

Stampin' Up! Apple Blossom Envelope Fun Fold.3

The photo above shows the entire length of the card – back side. It’s clear I used two sizes of the plaid from Gingham Cottage DSP – love the contrast.

Stampin' Up! Apple Blossom Envelope Fun Fold.4

For the envelope – more of the same Blushing Bride Gingham Cottage DSP for the flap. At the bottom of the envelope is the remainder of the scallop die cut from the Apple Blossom Dies. Here’s what I did… I began with a strip about 1 x 6 and used the scallop die close to one edge lengthwise. After running it through the Cut & Emboss machine it left three pieces – this is the last of those and the piece closest to the edge when die cut.

I can’t wait to play more with this Apple Harvest Bundle – such a beautiful set. The stamp set is from the Jul-Dec catalog, but the bundle is new. You can purchase each of these individually, but with 10% off when bundled, why would you?

Some of the products to make this card are from the Jul- Dec 2022 Annual Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. The other catalog available right now is the 2022 -2023 Annual Catalog . When ordering, please also use my current host code: TXBWJTMW and remember I offer Star-Studded Rewards.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints and Sun Prints for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello & happy Thursday! It’s our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop with a color challenge… and you can see my card that I created for it. Nature’s Prints and the coordinating Sun Prints DSP are just so perfect together. It doesn’t mean they MUST be used together ~ they just CAN BE… and I did! And – it’s a fun fold to boot. Not sure what to call it… I’m going to call it an envelope fold, cuz that’s what it looks like to me. :O)

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints & Sun Prints, fun fold

I began with a piece of Pacific Point card stock as it coordinates so nicely with the Sun Prints DSP. I scored then trimmed the right side as shown… marking the center point and trimming 1″ in from the top & bottom to the center mark.. It really is important to be very precise in your cutting – ask me how I know that! Trim 1/8″ from the left edge of the card base so it does not interfere with the fold. Cut your Sun Prints DSP: panel for the left front and another for the right pointy part. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post. Cut your center panel in Basic White. Stamp this Basic White panel.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints DSP, fun fold

I used the leaf stamp from Nature’s Prints and Starry Sky ink, stamped the first leaf full strength and continued with the next two without re-inking. I stamped the sentiment from Nature’s Prints stamp set in the same Starry Sky ink, stamped off once. Adhere this to the inside of the card.

Back to the front of the card… I used a 1 5/9 circle from the Layering Circles Dies to cut the circle in the pointy part of the fun fold. I cut another circle in Thick Basic White with the same circle die and stamped it: sentiment in stamped off Starry Sky, then the two portions of the fern – inking, stamping off, then stamping in place. The sentiment and the fern leaf are from the Nature’s Prints stamp set. I closed the card and adhered the circle to the left portion of the card but in the place of the hole of the right side. Does that make sense? I adhered it with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints with Sun Prints , fun fold

To keep the envelope fun fold closed, I cut a piece of the Sun Prints DSP with the very smallest of the Layering Circles Dies.. I also cut another circle from Pacific Point card stock and adhered these two together, put a few dimensionals on the back and with the card closed, put the small circle in place.

Stampin' Up! nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints, fun fold

I stamped the sentiment – again from Nature’s Prints stamp set in full strength Starry Sky on a Basic White strip. I did a bit of fussy cutting then adhered it to another piece of Pacific Point and adhered it to the card front on the cut ‘like envelope’ side. I added three Classic Matte Dots and the card was done!

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints, fun fold

For the envelope… another of the wonderful nature images stamped on the envelope front and flap with Starry Sky ink, the flap image stamped off. And that was it! Pretty simple really. The tricky part is the cutting to the center of the piece and trimming the DSP perfectly.

Now, take a few moments to work your way through this fun hop.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Hello Card

Hello FRIENDS! Yesterday I shared a card using the Hello Harvest Bundle from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. Well, I couldn’t put it down ~ so bear with me while I share another card using more of the dies and stamps. My colors were Gray Granite, Pool Party & Soft Succulent. Let’s take a look…

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle

What do you think? Does this look like a pumpkin? My hubby doesn’t think so 😩, but it does to me! Due to some experienced gardeners, pumpkins come in all colors these days. Mine began with Basic White, die cut with the Rustic Harvest Dies. I then used my Blending Brushes to add some color: a bit of Gray Granite ink, then Mango Melody ink – very lightly. These are two dies for the pumpkin body and another for the stem. I adhered all parts together with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back and set it aside. My next step was to run a Basic White panel through the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and add color to it with Blending Brushes and Gray Granite ink then Pool Party ink. Once I had it the way I wanted, I adhered it to a slightly larger Pool Party card stock, added dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the Gray Granite card base. I pulled out this leaf stamp from the Hello Harvest stamp set and Soft Succulent ink. I stamped off, then with a Sponge Dauber added a bit of Gray Granite ink on some of the leaf tips, then stamped it on a Basic White scrap. I did this three times, varying where I added the Gray Granite ink with the Sponge Dauber, then die cut each one with the leaf die from the Rustic Harvest Dies. I really like this leaf! Next I stamped the cute flower from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends in Mango Melody. These three flowers were die cut with the flower die in the Rustic Harvest Dies. I die cut various tendrils from Evening Evergreen card stock. Now everything was stamped, colored, and die cut, I could put the card front pieces together.

I lay the pieces out first so as to get the layering right… and in this case, I started with the leaves, then the pumpkin, flowers and finally the tendrils. Adhere in place on the card front: leaves with liquid glue; pumpkin of course is on dimensionals; flowers… one is bent so it has glue while the other two are on dimensionals; tendrils are glued as well. Final touches… a double bow made by cutting the Open Weave 3/8″ Ribbon in Soft Succulent, in half lengthwise, looping twice and securing with Simply Elegant Trim in Gold. I adhered this in place with a glue dot; and three Amber Gems from the Leaf Label and Amber Gems Combo Pack.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, inside

For the inside, stamp the Hello in Soft Succulent ink on the Basic White standard size panel. Of course this comes from the Hello Harvest stamp set! Then stamp that sweet floral bouquet in stamped off Pool Party ink. Adhere this to a Pool Party card stock piece cut just slightly larger, then into the inside of the Gray Granite card base.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, card & envelope

For the envelope, again using the same leaf from the Hello Harvest stamp set, I stamped off with the Soft Succulent ink then used a Sponge Dauber and Gray Granite ink to add ink to the leaf stamp on the tips, then stamped on the front of the envelope, reinked in the same way and stamped on the flap. The card is finis! I really really like this card! What do you think? Does the main image look like a pumpkin or not?

Products to make this card are from the Jul- Dec 2022 Annual Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you.

The Pear Pizzazz strip is adhered with liquid glue, with the die cut pieces attached with dimensionals. The die cut pieces are Rings of Love DSP, a free item during Sale-a-bration die cut with the largest Layering Circles die. Isn’t this DSP gorgeous? As I mentioned, it’s FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase as long as supplies last… ok, I divert. The DSP is adhered to a scalloped Night of Navy piece, die cut with the largest of the scalloped Layering Circles dies. The Basic White strip is stamped in Night of Navy ink using Happiness Abounds stamp set. I added three Night of Navy Solid Faceted Gems as a final touch.

What do we do with a sketch like this?it inspired me to create a couple of different cards… so totally different, yet both the same. Let’s take a peek at the first card.
Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop 7/21.1

For the inside… I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the Happiness Abounds stamp set. I also stamped the leaf image in second generation Pear Pizzazz ink right over it – of course on a Basic White panel. I found on my desk this ‘frame’ die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies, and added it to the edge of the Basic White panel, then attached it to the inside of the card.

And now… the second card.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, card 2.2

The card base is Melon Mambo card stock, layered with Wonderful World DSP on a Basic White strip, adhered to the card base. I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut yet another piece of the Wonderful World DSP. This is attached to a scalloped die cut with the largest of the Layering Circles Dies in scallop from Basic White. The same sentiment was used on the Basic White strip, but stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. I used three Melon Mambo Solid Faceted Gems for a bit of glam.

For the inside…

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, card 2, inside

I first stamped the sentiment from Happiness Abounds stamp set in Melon Mambo ink. The rose is Melon Mambo ink – second generation, but should have been at least third generation, as it covers up the sentiment.

Both of these cards are beautiful ~ one is significantly softer while the other is more bold, but they tell the truth either way. Now, enjoy the hop as you move around the various blogs.

Stampin’ Up! Angled Gatefold

Hello there! It’s Tuesday and time for another fun fold design I think you will like. It features the Happy Forest Friends DSP in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and the stamp bundle, Happier Than Happy stamp set along with its coordinating dies. I didn’t use the coordinating dies but did pull in dies from All That Dies from He’s All That bundle to use on the belly band.

Angled Gatefold.1

Is this pretty DSP? Calypso Coral is its main feature and I’ve used that color for the card base. I’ve seen this style card on Pinterest a lot and have wanted to give it a try. The tricky part is the layering pieces and getting the proper angles. It took me a couple of tries, but I’m pretty please with the final card. There are plenty of videos for you to see first-hand how this is done, but I will try to explain it. I do encourage a watching a video though!

The card base is 5 1/2 x 11, scored at 3 3/8 from each side. With the inside of the card facing down, measure down 1 1/2″ from the top right corner: trim from the score line to the 1 1/2″ mark. With the inside of the card still facing down, measure in 1″ along the bottom of the card and trim from the corner just cut to the 1″ mark. Do the same on the other side. Refer to these two photos for reference.

Angled Gatefold.2
Angled Gatefold.3

The next step is to cut the same angles on a 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 piece of DSP. Tricks here are to make certain which papers you desire for each side and trimming them properly :O) For me, I decided to use computer paper to make a template – and that took a couple of tries to get the cut the way I wanted it. I used that template to cut the Happy Forrest Friends DSP, then adhered it in place with liquid glue. Make sure the papers line up on the bottom edge in particular, so when the card is closed, they are even. Here’s a photo without the belly band on the card.

Angled Gatefold.4

Now work on the inside… On a Basic White panel 4 x 51/4, I stamped this uber-cute bear in Smoky Slate ink. I then stamped the two leaf sprays, also in the same ink. I used the sentiment from Happier Than Happy stamp set & Calypso Coral ink to stamp the words. I adhered this in place with liquid glue. and created the belly band.

Angled Gatefold, inside.5

The belly band is 1 x 10 in Calypso Coral and scored at one end at 2 1/4″. Wrap this around the card with the scored end to the left and fold the other side over, firming the second fold. Add Tear n’ Tape to each end and secure while around the card. This helps make the belly band not too tight :O) … ask me how I know that! Decorate the belly band: In Smoky Slate card stock, make the rectangle using a die from the All That Dies. Secure in place on the belly band, covering the fold over, with liquid glue. Die cut this fun-edged circle with another die from All That Dies and Basic White card stock. Stamp the sentiment from Eden’s Garden with Smoky Slate ink. Before placing the circle over the rectangle, i felt it needed a bit of trim – and came up with Pale Papaya Open Weave 3/8″ Ribbon. I secured it to the rectangle with Stampin’ Seal, then added the circle with dimensionals. Three Classic Matte Dots in gray were added to tie it all together.

Angled Gatefold.1

For the envelope I added more of the Happy Forrest Friends DSP to the flap and that was it!

Angled Gatefold.6

This card is going to a friend who is moving, so the inside sentiment, hello baby, is an endearing term for friend. At least, that’s how I’m using it! If this were a true baby card, I would use totally different DSP…

Stampin’ Up! Flip Flop Fun Fold

This Hippest Hippos bundle is just too fun. The looks on their faces AND the stances – well… make really cute cards. A real pick me up if someone isn’t feeling well, or a child’s card, an anniversary. Lots of options, just your creative mind to decide how to use them. And you can get these FREE when placing an order of $100. They are from the Sale-a-bration Catalog – each come with a $50 order. So in order to get both, ypou know, order $100 worth of product! Today’s card is a ‘fun fold’ and is designated a ‘flip flop’ by one of my teammates: Rosie Kean. Thank you Rosie for this fun, fun fold!

Flip Flop Fun Fold.1

Hopefully you can see, it’s like a double card: the front is the flip of the small insert, the flop is the diagonal portion that flops back to see the inside. :O) I started with the main card base in Poll Party card stock, standard size, then made the diagonal cut from the fold to the lower right corner of the card front. Next step was the layering: Basic White and Subtles 6×6 DSP in Pool Party. It’s helpful not to use DSP that has a definitive up & down pattern, but it can be done. Because the DSP is double sided, I simply used the other side of the diagonal cut for for the inside. Of course, this requires two pieces of the DSP, the second being the inside back layer.

Flip Flop Fun Fold.3
Flip Flop Fun Fold.2

  • The next is to create the smaller card. Again, Pool Party card stock and adhered with liquid glue to the center of the inside back. Now to the fun part of creating the decorated panel.
  • Stamp the hippo in Memento ink on a Basic White piece.
  • Color the hippo with Stampin’ Blends: Light Smoky Slate and Petal Pink. I even colored the nails, ‘cuz this is a girl hippo! The flower is Light Cherry Cobbler and the leaf is Light Shaded Spruce. Die cut this hippo with the Hippo Dies, put dimensionals on the back and set aside.
  • With more of the Hippo Dies, cut the hearts from Real Red, the ground from Pear Pizzazz and the grasses from Garden Green. The little flower is die cut from So Saffron.
  • With Blending Brushes and a Basic White panel, create the sun with So Saffron ink, then add sky with Balmy Blue ink as a bottom layer, then add a bit of Pool Party ink for sky variety :O) Blend these into the sun so there isn’t a line.
  • Adhere ground, grasses and hearts with liquid glue. Add flower with a mini dimensional cut in half.
  • Add the hippo – remember it’s on dimensionals too.
  • Now stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray ink
  • Adhere this completed panel to the smaller card front.
  • Decorate with sentiment or stamping, the inside of the smaller card – on a Basic White panel. As you can see, I did not complete that panel yet – and it is not adhered in place either! This is going to a friend of mine who just had a hip replacement… too perfect with the sentiment, right?!! So I have to finish that today and get it in the mail.

Envelope… Cover the flap in more of the Subtles 6×6 DSP using Pool Party.

Flip Flop Fun Fold.4

Stampin’ Up! Book Fold w/ Easel

Hello Sunday! Oh golly – our out of state family arrives today!!! So excited, ‘cuz it’s been a while. I’ve pulled out more DSP to share – from Awash in Beauty and more Hues of Happiness. And I’ve used them on a book fold with an easel. Such a fun and easy fold to do. Plus it adds a special touch with the easel. :O)

Book Fold Easel Card.1

Photo 1 shows the card flat. Photo 2 shows the card w/ the easel. What makes it a book fold is the left part that is adhered together (see the panel?). The easel is the ‘stand-uppy’ part. :O)

Book Fold Easel Card.2

How fun is that??? I like to cut all my pieces and add them to the layering card stock, then add to the card base. So, cut the Awash in Beauty 12 x 12 DSP for the card front and adhere to the Polished Pink layer. The card base is Thick Basic White, scored at 5 1/2 then scored again at 6 3/4. Turn the card and score the right panel from corner to corner diagonally. Burnish the score lines: the 6 3/4 becomes a valley and the diagonal score becomes a mountain – as you see in photo 2. What makes it a book fold is adhering the narrow strip to itself (from the 5 1/2 to the 6 3/4 – that 1 1/4 area is adhered to the back of the card base. Now adhere the Polished Pink panels to the coordinating panels on the card base. (all card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post BTW.) With the Blossoming Happiness Dies and the Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP, die cut leaves and the large rose and small rose for the inside. The Happiness Abounds Bundle (10% less when purchased as a bundle) coordinates with the Hues of Happiness DSP – intentionally, for this very purpose. It makes it so easy to add dimension and loveliness to a card. I fussy cut the blue flowers from Awash in Beauty DSP, adhered it to the back of the large rose, keeping in mind, the fold. I did the same with the die cut leaves – added them with liquid glue to the back of the rose. The rose got dimensionals just where it would attach to the easel fold, primarily the bottom half of the rose, then added it to the easel. VOILA!

Book Fold Easel Card.3

The inside is quick… adhere the Basic White panel to the Polished Pink piece, then to the inside of the card. The Rose, die cut from Hues of Happiness DSP, is attached with a couple of dimensionals so it’s raised a bit and holds the fold in place. The final touch was adding three Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card: flower center + two more just to the left of the rose. Easy peasy, right?! Here’s another show of the easel fold.

Book Fold Easel Card.4

Ok, envelope… I embossed a Polished Pink panel with the super fun Stripes & Splatters 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the flap. Of course – I used the Splatters, as you can see. And for the envelope front, a fussy cut flower from the Awash in Beauty DSP adhered with liquid glue.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish with Layers

WooHoo! It is for many a l-o-n-g weekend! Happy Memorial Day celebrations. Thanks you Veterans for your service to our country. We DO appreciate you! I’ve another easy card for you today, creating with the Deckled Rectangles Dies and Designer Series Paper, Awash in Beauty 12 x 12, and the Biggest Wish stamp set.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers.1

This card has many layers and it’s colorful. Polished Pink is one of the In Colors from last year and it is b-r-i-g-h-t! And… it has made, in my opinion, this particular pattern or patterns of DSP really pop.

  • Begin with a card base of Polished pink. Layer the Basic White panel, then the DSP (Awash in Beauty) that has been die cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Dies. Adhere these together as shown.
  • Using the 4th largest of the Deckled Rectangles, cut another of the Polished Pink. Layer a panel of Basic White then the final layer of Awash in Beauty, also die cut with the Deckled Rectangles. Adhere all together.
  • Wrap these layers with 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon in White and secure in back with Stampin’ Seal
  • Wrap Open Weave Ribbon in Polished Pink directly over the Organdy Ribbon and secure in back with more Stampin’ Seal. Slip a length of the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon under the Organdy and tie a bow on the far left.
  • Stamp the ‘Hello’ in Mossy Meadow ink from the Biggest Wish stamp set and die cut with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies.
  • Stamp the ‘friend’ from the same stamp set (love the varied fonts here!) in Polished Pink ink and fussy cut. Put dimensionals on the back of this word and add it to the die cut circle.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of the die cut circle and add it over the ribbon. For centering, I used the bottom of the word ‘hello’ to line up with the bottom of the ribbon
  • Add three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the circle and the front is complete.

True confessions… I have not completed the inside of this card. I simply could not decide what I wanted. I do not have, but am ordering today, the True Beauty Bundle that coordinates with this DSP. When it arrives, I will complete the inside and share it with you. For now, I have used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut an inner layer to decorate. It is, of course in Basic White.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers, inside

For the envelope… more of the Mossy Meadow Awash in Beauty DSP for the flap. For the front of the envelope, I took an edge of the rectangle die cut, trimmed the ends and added it to the bottom. Once that coordinating True Beauty Bundle is here, I will add one of the floral stamps :O)

PROMOTION DATES: 3–31 MAY 2022

Time is getting short my friends… today is the 27th and you have until the 31st to join with this fabulous promotion. What ARE you waiting for???

Order products early from catalogs AND enjoy that 20% discount, join my team now… you may do that here.

Just a few of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator AND part of our Critters ‘n Creatin’ Krew Team:

  • At least a 20% discount on everything that you order as a Demonstrator!
  • Early peeks at new release items and preorders for new items about a month before they are available to customers!
  • The ability to attend Demonstrator exclusive Stampin’ Up! events!
  • No pressure to sell to anyone, hold classes or workshops or run a business.  You can simply order for yourself and get the discount!  And as long as you have at least $300 in sales per quarter, you’ll continue as an active Demonstrator and continue to get the discount.  If you aren’t able to maintain the $300 per quarter minimums, you simply go back to being a customer, no commitment required and no penalty if decide that being a Demonstrator isn’t right for you.
  • Stampin’ Up! does have an extensive library of class and project ideas for those wishing to jump into hosting classes as well as training to help start your business, should you choose to do that.

If you join with me, you’ll also get:

  • Monthly team meetings via video conference where we talk about the latest happenings at Stampin’ Up! and share project ideas.  Team members are located all over the United States, but we still get together in person online and have lots of fun.
  • Quarterly in-person meetings if you live in the NJ or surrounding area, where we get together to do a little stamping, creating, getting to know one another and most of all SHARE inspiration. If you live outside the NJ area you can join us through that wonderful ZOOM video conference.
  • Free access to our online class tutorials. These are exceptional!
  • A private Facebook page where we can chat, ask questions and share ideas.
  • Team giveaways and prizes for reaching sales and team goals or attending specific meetings. 😉
  • The best part is the laughing and kidding and sharing of information/ creativity/ talent ~ following the SU! adage: Inspire. Create. Share. ❤️ 😁

Join our incredible group of crafters and creators.
