When I first joined Stampin’ Up!, I was a little worried about how I was going to come up with ideas for cards. What I didn’t know at the time was that Stampin’ Up! has a wealth of resources available exclusively for demonstrators. One of the fun things that came with my demonstrator kit was the August edition of Stampin’ Success magazine. This is a resource of business tips, class and workshop ideas and best of all: card ideas created by other seasoned demonstrators!
Have I told you how much I love the Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set and the Loving Thoughts sentiment sets? I know I have! I saw a version of this card in the demonstrator magazine and just had to make my own interpretation. I kept the colors shown, but I changed the sentiment. The original card also had a piece of gumball green ribbon in place of the strip of gumball green paper I used since I did not have that ribbon. (Yet!) I love this card! The colors make me happy! These are the new In Colors for 2012-2014 and I can’t stop creating with them.
I really thought the “Dare To Dream” sentiment was perfect here as well. For me, I’m taking a chance on creating a blog and starting a business of my own. I would love to have you join my team! We can grow our businesses together and create a successful team! I would love to help other motivated people start and build their own business! For more information, check out my information page by clicking here. You can also email me with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org. During November Stampin’ Up is offering a free set of stamp pads in addition to the Starter Kit to help you get your business started. That is $175 worth of stamping products for $99!! Imagine the possibilities! Dare to dream!
