Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I’m a bit under the weather … a tooth infection I believe so I didn’t get much stampin’ done but I do have a wonderful post to share that comes from our Stampin’ Up! Get Inspired blog presented by our Concept Artist … Jen C.
You are going to really enjoy the creative cards and projects …
Founder’s Circle is an exclusive event awarded to our top demonstrators who have shown leadership and a balanced, successful approach toward developing their businesses. This wonderful event (more like a party that lasts for days!) was held last week in St. George, Utah. We’ve loved seeing the achievers’ photos on social media!
Card swaps are a part of nearly every Stampin’ Up! event. It’s always fun to see all of the great things that Stampin’ Up! demonstrators create. The swaps from Founder’s Circle were proudly displayed at the home office, and I wanted to share a few of the wonderful projects that were created. (Trust me, seeing them all together was awe-inspiring!)
First of all, the witch’s hat attached to this little treat bag is pure genius! Janet Baker created this darling project using the Tree Punch (item 135859), Bow Builder Punch (item 137414), 2-1/2″ Circle Punch (item 120906), and the 1″ Circle Punch (item 119868). She also used the new Black Glimmer Paper (item 139605) and the Witches’ Night Photopolymer Stamp Set (item 139708).
Next up is an adorable card designed by Allison Okamitsu. I just love how she showed off the cute reindeer from the Jolly Christmas Stamp Set (item 139876). And, our Rhinestone Basic Jewels (item 119246) can be easily colored using permanent marker (for those who are partial to red-nosed reindeer)!
I also really loved this Halloween card made by Kimberly VanDiepen. She used the Cheer All Year Photopolymer Stamp Set (item 139839) and the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper (item 139584). This stamp set coordinates with the Season to Season Wreath Kit (item 139645); however, it’s super-versatile outside of the kit, too.
One of my favorite stamp sets from our holiday catalog is Flurry of Wishes (item 139732), showcased in this beautiful card by Sherry Roth. I thought her use of the Hearts Border Punch (item 133784) was the perfect accent.
Check out this elegant card created by Mary Knabe. She added color to our Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper (item 138444), which is perfect! I think she definitely achieved timeless elegance.
Our new Spider Web Doilies (item 139622) appear in the Halloween section of the catalog, but I love how Joyce Feraco used the white side of the doily as an elegant snowflake. It looks lovely paired with the Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper (item 139588).
I really love the star window on this card from Becky Roberts. The Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper (item 139592) is a favorite, and she showcased it beautifully. Also, the stamp set she used—Seasonal Snapshot 2015 (item 139841)—coordinates with the Project Life Collection, but it can be used with so much more.
Lastly, I thought this card created by Esther Boyle was very clever. She used an Oval Framelit Die (item 129381), a Metallic Foil Doily (item 138392), and some Silver Cording Trim (item 139620) to create this sweet angel ornament.
I wish there were time to share them all! Our demonstrators are truly remarkable and have so much creativity to share. A special thanks to them all for sharing what they love.
