I had a stray tree on my desk for quite some time.  I finally decided to put it to good use! When I received my Rooted in Nature stamp set, I played around using daubers trying to blend different colors (Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide).  The next level back was using Tranquil Tide, and the back tree was Tranquil Tide stamped off once.  The tree trunks were inked with Early Espresso.  I die cut my panel of whisper white with the Blended Seasons (no longer available) shape and then did the same with a piece of Wood Textures dsp.  The pieces were mounted on a Mint Macaron base embossed with the Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The sentiment is from a Paper Pumpkin kit.  I tied some baker's twine from Share What You Love embellishments.  Twine is my favorite embellishment!  What is yours?  Is it ribbon, buttons, rhinestones, enamel shapes?

Gingham love

This card was created with the cute gingham dsp!  We received it at OnStage Orlando, and I can't get enough of it! I used a brand new set from our Occasions catalog (another all-attendee giveaway).  The catalog is being shipped in the next few weeks and it begins on January 5.  I can't wait to hear what you think about it!

This set is called Incredible Like You.  I stamped it in Blueberry Bushel on a Stitched Label die cut.  The base is Balmy Blue with a strip of Blueberry Bushel and the blue gingham.  I added a few pieces of Granny Apple Green with the Sprig Punch and some White Bakers Twine.

I'm so excited about the Stampin' Up! Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs!  I cannot wait to share them with you.  If you are not working with another demonstrator and you'd like catalogs sent to you, please message me.

OnStage Orlando

Sorry I've been MIA!  Still trying to catch up after attending Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event in Orlando.  We celebrated Stampin' Up!'s 30th anniversary.  It was so much fun!  I got to spend time with a great bunch of people including my upline, Mary Fish.   I saw friends I haven't seen in two years and we laughed a lot! The worst part of OnStage is leaving your friends.  And the best part of being a demonstrator (on top of the discount) is the friendships!! 

Stampin' Up! spoiled us with some amazing gifts and did not disappoint with the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs!  I cannot wait to receive my pre-order (another perk). 

Some exciting news to share - we now have a red rubber stamp that sticks!!  It's called Cling Stamps and they are replacing Clear Stamps.  Boy, do they stick!!  Watch this video to learn more about them.

If you've ever thought about becoming a demonstrator, please talk to me!  I can explain all of the benefits to you.  There is no obligation to hold classes, you can simply enjoy the discount yourself.  Let me know if you want to hear about it.  I just celebrated my 5 year anniversary!!  I love being a part of Stampin' Up!
