I had so much fun yesterday. I made two projects with "My Digital Studio," the digital scrapbooking program from Stampin' Up!. It's so nice; you can create fliers, banners, newsletters, 3-D projects, and, of course, cards and scrapbook pages. Yesterday I recreated two projects from the Stampin' Up! web site. There were step-by-step directions, so it was very easy. I'm working through all the instructional webinars so I can be more proficient.
Remember, if you would love to make a little (or a lot of) extra money doing something creative and fun, you can be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. You can select either starter kit – the Standard or the Digital. Both come with stamps, ink, business supplies, card stock, adhesive – everything you need to get started right away. During Sale-a-bration, the standard kit is15% off, and with either kit, you can select a stamp set of your choice from the current catalog – free! But, like Cinderella's fun at the ball, it will be over soon! So contact me today to get started – or to place an order.
Here's one of the sets I got free for Sale-a-bration. It's the set Stampin' Up! designed for Ronald McDonald House charities (RMHC). Each year, a new set is designed for the charity, and $2 from the sale of each set is given to RMHC. Thousands of dollars have already been donated this year, and even though this was a free set for many of us, Stampin' Up! still donated $2 to the charity for each set. Pretty cool, huh? So here's the thank you card I made with it.
The peacock was created using the "Joseph's Coat" technique. I sponged ink (Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry) on Glossy White card stock. Then I heat embossed the peacock over it with clear ink and powder. The final step – bray dark ink over the whole image. I used Bravo Burgundy, but it wasn't dark enough, so I covered it again with a layer of Elegant Eggplant. Doesn't he look majestic?
