Guest Stamper: Brenda M

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I want to share with you a card I received from one of my downline members, Brenda! We had a team meeting last night, and of coarse we stamp and swap … so there will be more beautiful samples I will be sharing with you.

Brenda’s card is a celebration of Sale-a-bration! Her card showcases some of the fabulous items you can get free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration …. and we have less than 2 weeks : (   to get all the freebies we need!

Let’s begin with the stunning background piece Brenda created with the “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer series paper. These come white with a glossy white pattern so you can color using a variety of techniques! Brenda created her’s by simply sponging the colors onto the paper and then wiping off any excess…. it really is stunning!

The beautiful butterfly and the flower come from a Sale-a-bration stamp set that was added to the already hefty list of freebies! This is the “Nature’s Perfection” stamp set…

And last by definitely not least is the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set Brenda used for her greeting. I love this stamp set, it has wonderful “useful” greetings with nice fonts … aren’t we always looking for new and more greetings!

I hope you enjoyed Brenda’s card as much as everyone in our Star’s group did!  I will have more of our swaps to share in the upcoming week.

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for my “Simply Sunday” … I will also be featuring the “Irresistibly Yours” paper and the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set!

Thanks so much for stopping by …

Have a wonderful Saturday!

You’re Simply Wonderful …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Happy Monday to you!! Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

Today I’d like to share with you a different twist to the “Love is Kindness” card that I shared with you yesterday. You can use the same layout, yet change the color, add a ribbon and the look is changed!

From Daffodil Delight to Pink Pirouette, and instead of a button … I’ve added a bow. Both super simple, both really cute!

I also “omitted” the words today and added a greeting from the Sale-a-bration stamp set; Simply Wonderful 🙂

SAB Product of the Week… Simply Wonderful Stamp Set

Hello Stampin Friends,

Today we are going to showcase the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set.

Sometimes it’s easier to show someone how wonderful they are versus just telling them. The sentiments in the Simply Wonderful Stamp Set—phrases like “Thanks so very much” and “You’re the best”—offer many opportunities to show your appreciation, love, admiration, and general regard for anyone in your life. Added bonus: the stamp set coordinates with the Decorative Label and Extra-Large Oval Punches, just to name a few!
