#stampinup #faithfulinkspirations A little birdie told me that the new Stampin' Up catalogs are here! Today is the launch of Stampin' Up's Occasions mini catalog and the start of Sale-a-Bration!! It's so exciting when Stampin' Up releases new products. As a demonstrator, we can order them ahead of time and start playing with them--just one of the many perks of being a demonstrator! I've had a few projects made and ready to go, but waited until today to start sharing them with you.
First, let me tell you about Sale-a-Bration (as if you didn't know). It's the most wonderful time of the Stampin' Up year. There are three ways to earn FREE Sale-a-Bration products.
SHOP! For every $50 you spend, you’ll receive a free Sale-A-Bration product. This year we have a new reward level, giving you more options for your free items. Let’s break it down:
- If you spend $50, you get one free level 1 product.
- If you spend $100, you get one free level 2 product, OR, you can choose two level 1 items.
- If you spend $150, you have the option to choose three level 1 items or one level 1 item and one level 2 item.
HOST! When you host a qualifying party with at least $250 in sales during Sale-A-Bration, you’ll earn $25 more in Stampin’ Rewards! So instead of earning $25 for $250 in sales, you will earn $50 in Stampin' Rewards.
JOIN! It's always a good time to join Stampin' Up as a demonstrator--but when you join during Sale-A-Bration, you get even more! Before you say, "But I don't want to be a demonstrator," let me tell you this: The demonstrator starter kit is a no-strings-attached bundle. You get to create your own kit. For $99 you get your choice of up to $125 in products for $99 (that’s $26 in free products) and the kit ships free for another 10% savings. You may includeitems from the Occasions Catalog as well as Annual Catalog in your kit. (Sale-A-Bration rewards do not apply to the $99 Starter Kit purchase.) BONUS! CHOOSE TWO FREE STAMP SETS (any price) when you join during Sale-A-Bration. That’s up to an additional $101 value! Sign up with me on line here during Sale-A-Bration (Jan. 3-March 31) to get up to $226 in Stampin' Up product for only $99!! Then you can enjoy 20-25% off Stampin' Up products on subsequent orders from the day you join through at least July 31, 2018. You can drop at the end of July with no penalty! But, you may just want to keep your demonstratorship. Contact me with any questions, or click on the "join my team" link above for more information.
Now on to our regularly scheduled stampin' program. How cute is this card?! The bird and sentiment are from the "Petal Palette" stamp set in the Occasions catalog. (Click on the link on the right side of this blog.) The bird is stamped in Calypso Coral Ink and the sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Whisper White circle punched with the 2-1/4" Circle Punch. The Designer Series paper (3-1/2" by 5-1/2") is called Petal Passion--it's printed from a handpainted watercolor design and all the sheets are in shades of black and white. I colored in some of the flowers with a Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker. The DSP is adhered to a Calypso Coral Card Stock card base.
I adhered a 3-1/2" by 3/4" strip of striped DSP from the same package and a 3-1/2" by 3/4" strip of Smoky Slate Card Stock to the card. I then added a long length of 1/4" Whisper White Organza Ribbon, looping it back and forth. This ribbon is so pretty! Then I adhered the stamped bird image with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish the card I used Glue Dots to adhere two of the Petal Passion metallic embellishments to the card.
Come back tomorrow for another great card from the Occasions catalog. I know you'll love it!!
