If you are in my area, pop in 9-11 am TODAY, May 30, 2013 for
2013-2014 Catalog KICK OFF!!
Make 2 projects & get a FREE Catalog!
(limit one catalog per person)
Ordering from the new catalog BEGINS 5/31/13 at noon MOUNTAIN time.
To prep for catalog change over, Stampin' Up!'s ordering system will be down from midnight to noon MT Time.
Helpful guidelines to ordering new product:
1- Try cardstock ASSORTMENTS to see which new colors you will love.
2- When adding a new color, you will maximize your creative options by getting a deep selection in that ONE COLOR: cardstock, ink pad & reinker, Designer Series Paper, ribbon/twine, embellishments. You will then have the accessories to coordinate when you create.
3- ALWAYS purchase a reinker when adding a new ink pad. Ink pads last a very longgg time when refilled.
4- Look for BUNDLES of coordinating products which are a 15% SAVINGS!
5- To the right of stamp set order numbers is a list of coordinating punches and dies. The thin lines around the stamp images shows the punch and dies shapes.
6- All Designer Series Papers Packages now list the COLORS used in that package - SO HELPFUL!
7- Purchase at least $50 in merchandise at a time, so your order qualifies for my STARS Customer Rewards Program!
8- If your budget allows, purchase $150 at a time to receive Hostess Benefits of FREE product of your choice PLUS THREE STARS towards my Rewards Program! It's DOUBLE DIPPING!!
Note: I'm having trouble linking my Rewards Program, so please email me for a copy: Nferb@hotmail.com
I frequently hear, "I just don't know WHAT to do for Men's cards!" Here are some quick guidelines:
1-Keep the card design clean and simple
2-Use colors and images from nature
3-Use twine or jute instead of ribbon
4-If you use a button, pick a wooden or metal type
5-If you don't have masculine images, use the sentiment as the focal point
6-Click MALE CARDS in the right column to see ideas

This FUN new Specialty Designer Series Paper is called QUATREFANCY! Nicole was my inspiration: http://becreativewithnicole.blogspot.com/2013/05/monday-lunchtime-sketch-challenge.html?m=1
This card features BOTH SIDES of double-sided This and That Epic Day Designer Series Paper! I used a flattened Soda Pop Top with a greeting...then covered the greeting with Crystal Effects. NOTE: I should have heat embossed the sentiment because the color bled slightly. oops

A very sweet neighbor's birthday calls for a VERY special card! She loves green and she quilts so I created this card with those two elements. Using a 1-1/4" square punch I punched squares out of the lovely International Bazaar Designer Series Papers. I cut the squares diagonally and arranged. I ran the entire layer through the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine with the Lattice Embossing Folder. This step gives the "quilted" effect!
