The Butterflies Are Here!

The butterfly dies have been out of stock for weeks, but are now back in stock.  As inspiration, I thought I would share some card swaps that feature the big butterflies.  I received these cards from other, very talented, Stampin’ Up demonstrators.  I love them!  Enjoy!

Demonstrator Perks!

There are good reasons to be a Stampin’ Up demonstrator.  I meet nice people, I earn a little money, and I support my paper crafting habit.  It’s a good thing.  Another perk is that as a demonstrator, I receive a magazine in the mail several times a year.  It’s just for demonstrators and it has tips for running a stamping business, as well as some card ideas.  I get really excited when it arrives in the mailbox because I look forward to seeing what products are featured.  This month there were ideas for using An Open Heart.  I was excited about this set back in July, but somehow I had forgotten about it.  I dusted it off and decided to make something pretty.
That was my inspiration from the magazine.  I also decided to add a little from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  (Just between us, I added that because somehow I got a smudge mark on the card.  Actually, of the 6 cards I made, I ended up with smudges on 3 of them.  How does that happen?  Anyway, it was nothing I couldn’t mask with the grunge.) 
Thanks for visiting!

Weekly Deals

Sorry, I'm a little late with these today!  There are some great things on sale this week including the Mother's Love stamp set.  Those flower images are SO nice.  I think alot of people passed by the set because they felt it was too specific since it was themed for Mother's Day.  However, the flowers are very versatile and something to be used all season long.

More Painted Petals

I might be obsessed with this stamp set.  I posted some ideas on Thursday, but I had lots more to share, so I’m posting more today!  Enjoy!
I love these cards and hope you do too!

I love the new Painted Petals stamp set.  I even used it to make my Easter card this year (which I neglected to photograph… oops!)  I do, however, have some pretty card samples to share that use this set.  These were cards from other demonstrators at Leadership.  They give me so much inspiration!
