Christmas in July
Today is THE LAST DAY to take advantage of the Christmas in July deal from Stampin' Up! In case you missed it, in addition to $125 in products of your choice for only $99 with FREE shipping, you will also receive the Essentials Gift Pack ($72 value) from Stampin' Up! PLUS a welcome gift ($25 value) from me!
This is all part of the benefit of becoming a demonstrator. Many of my "stamping family" have signed up just to get the discount, and never even have parties! There's no obligation on your part to do anything more. If you want to stay active as a demo, you just need $300 in sales per quarter, starting with your first full quarter (Oct-Dec). It can be your own purchases (with the demo discount), or family and friends can order.
This is the stamp set that is included in the Essentials Gift Pack. It coordinates with the Card Front Builder Thinlits, which you can choose in your starter kit, if you want!
If you are on the fence about taking the plunge, let me assure you, you won't regret it! Join now, and start getting the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!
On this card I used our embossing paste, mixed with some clear glitter. It gives the snow a nice sparkly effect! Did you know you can use the heat tool on the embossing paste and make it puff up a little? You can! It doesn't puff up as much as the puffy paint we all used in the 90s, but it does add more dimension to the snow. Spread it on with the palette knife, then immediately heat it with the heat tool, leaving it on each section until it puffs. (Be careful not to leave it TOO long!)
I totally messed up on my dates for the Stamp Review Crew Carols of Christmas Bonus Hop, so if you wanted to see it, you can start here with Tanya's blog, Tinkerin' in Ink with Tanya, then just follow the links from there.
