Stamp-aversary Celebration!

Happy Stamp-aversary to me!

Today I celebrate my 10-year stamp-aversary of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  Some days it feels like it’s been much longer than that.. but most of the time I wonder where the years have gone.  Time flies when you’re having fun, right?  It has definitely been fun! So let’s get this party started…

It’s not a party unless you join me (parties of 1 are NOT fun!).  So starting Today – through Sunday, September 17… I want you to Celebrate With Me!

How To Celebrate with Me

Simply place an Online Order with me of $50 or more.. Using this Stamp-aversary Host Code: UKHHHWAX

I will send you a “10-year Stamp-aversary Sampler Package”… What’s in it?  Well, it will be a surprise but I can guarantee it will be some of my favorite accessories, ribbons and DSP (designer series paper) from both the Holiday and Annual Catalog!  It’s my 10-year so you will get at least 10 different items to play & create with!!

Why I’m Celebrating…

10-years ago today (Stamp-aversary) I made a very wise decision to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!  Cliche’ as it sounds, but it was one of the BEST DECISIONS EVER!  The past 10 years has brought into my life people I would never have met otherwise…friends from around the world…and truly a network of people all sharing the love of stamps and paper-crafting!  Both customers and fellow demonstrators I can now say are really, truly my friends!  I am indeed blessed!

Best Decision Ever

Have YOU ever thought about getting all your Stampin’ Up! products at a discount?  (be honest, we all love a discount!)   Or maybe you’d like to earn a bit of cash to cover your hobby costs?  Oh, why not earn extra money for something you’ve been longing for but just didn’t have the budget for it? (That’s why I signed up!)  There really is not many reasons for NOT signing up to be a member of my Inking Sunrises Team!    Questions?  Ask me!  Or like Nike says “Just Do It!” by Clicking Here!  It’s only $99 for the fully customized Starter Kit which includes $125 in product!  Then you get me and the rest of the Inking Sunrisers (that’s really a bonus!) to support you on your adventure!  Come on – Let’s Celebrate!

Hugs & Smiles,

Everything is just Peachy, Thanks

I love the old southern saying “Everything is just peachy”!  And that’s how I feel being part of a Project Sheet Co-Op of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  Being part of this co-op, I’m able to share not only my own project ideas, but those from other talented demos as well.  Here’s one such project, a Peachy Thanks.  I hope you enjoy!

Stampin Up Peachy Touches of Texture All Things Thanks Angela Waters #Stampaftersunrise

A Few Tips:

  • Peekaboo Peach cardstock makes you just want to bite into a fresh, juicy peach, and is the base for this 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card.  Score it at 4 1/4″ and your base is ready to go!
  • The flower was stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ using the Touches of Texture Stamp Set:  Old Olive for the stem, Calypso Coral for the flower outline,  Just look at how fabulous this stamp set is!

  • The small dotted stamp was stamped multiple times using Peekaboo Peach Classic Ink to fill in the flower center.
  • The beautiful sentiment comes from the All Things Thanks Stamp Set, inked up with Calypso Coral.
  • If you make a lot of “Thank You” cards, you’ll definitely want to invest in this stamp set! (Yes – add it to your order!)

All Things Thanks 143089w, 143097c

  • For a fun, whimsical effect, ink up the dotted stamp again with Peekaboo Peach and stamp a couple times without re-inking.
  • What do you think of the ‘trick’ with the Baker’s Twine?  Simply folded in half, tied in knots before adding.
  • Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Peekaboo Peach –   I just love these color combos!

  • As a final touch – Clear Wink of Stella is added to the center of the flower and the larger parts “thanks”.

So what do you think?  Do you love this card?  Leave a comment and let me know.
