Ink-redible Promotion!



Dates:  November  1 - December 16, 2012

Promotion Details: Hostesses who hold a minimum $450 party during the promotion period will receive a FREE collection of Classic Stampin Pads-they can choose from Brights, Subtles, or Regals-a $49.95 value!  Plus, the free ink is in addition to the regular hostess benefits-INK-redible!


The Fine Print

  • Customer, workshop, and online orders from my Online Store qualify for this promotion.
    • While in the past, online orders have not counted toward hostess promotions, we're excited to unveil a trial program that will allow online customers to take advantage of our current hostess promotion with a qualifying order.
    • While we want to encourage rewarding hostesses who host parties, we will be testing this option as away to reward customers who purchase from our Online Stores.
    • Customers will be prompted to select their qualifying ink collection with a $450 order. They will be required to use one of the following item numbers in order to select their free ink collection. 
      • 132652 Brights Classic Stampin' Pads
      • 132653 Subtles Classic Stampin' Pads
      • 132654 Regals Classic Stampin' Pads
    • Note: This only applies to orders placed through a DBWS subscriber's Online Store.
  • To get free ink, the order total must be at least $450 before tax and shipping.
  • This special offer isn't incremental. That means if you place a $900 order, we'll be excited for sure-but you won't get two free ink collections. But really, isn't one free collection of ink incentive enough? (But customers can get two free ink collections when they participate in both of our INK-redible promotions; see the INK-redible New Demonstrator Promotion page for details.)
  • Hostesses can still use their additional hostess dollars to get free products from the current annual and seasonal catalogs.
Wow! Free ink pads...it's a beautiful thing! Email to book your workshop today or to set up a catalog show, or simply take that wish list and hand it to your significant other and say, "You want to make me REALLY happy for Christmas this year?" Or there's nothing stopping you from doing what I do, which is buy your own gift, wrap it up, put it under the tree and Christmas morning you say, "How did you know I wanted this?"

      White Christmas Poinsettia

      Good morning and Happy Tuesday!  Today I'd like to share another Christmas card made with the Blossom   Petals Builder punch.

      The base of my card is Real Red and the first layer is Whisper White embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, then I cut the center out using the third die from the Labels Collection Framelits.

      I punched eleven of the smallest petals in Whisper White for the flower and five in Garden Green for the leaves from the Blossom Petals Builder punch and creased the center of each petal and added veins with the Paper-Piercing Tool on a mouse pad.  I then cut the pointed six petal flower from the Boho Blossoms punch for the base in which to glue the white petals.

      After gluing the six white petals to the base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I then glued the other five as shown.  The five green leaves are attached to the bottom of the flower and I added four pearls to the center of the flower.  

      I dug out my retired Sizzlit Swirls Scibbles die and cut two scrolls. I could have used the Little Leaves Sizzlits die # 114511 in place of the scrolls.  The gold branches were punched with a non-Stampin' Up punch.  

      I stamped the greeting in Jet Black Stazon on Whisper White using the "Merry Christmas" stamp from More Merry Messages stamp set then used a square punch to create the flags on each end.  The greeting is attached with dimensionals.  
           

      Supplies:

      Stamps: More Merry Messages Wood #126400 Clear #126402

      Ink: Jet Black Stazon # 101406

      Cardstock: Real Red #102482, Whisper White #100730, Garden Green #102584, Brushed Gold #102935

      Accessories: Big Shot #113439, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder #117335, Blossom Petals Builder punch #121808, Boho Blossom punch #119858, Pearl Basic Jewels #119247, Paper-Piercing Tool #126189.

      First Christmas

      Happy Monday to all my blogging friends.  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  Today I would like to share a Christmas card made with Stampin' Up First Christmas stamp set.

      This card is a 5 x 7 and I started by embossing the top layer using the Northern Flurry embossing folder then turned the cardstock around to emboss the opposite corner.  Then, I cut the center out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits.

      On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, making sure that it would cover the opening made by the framelit,  I stamped the manger and star with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  I then took two post-it-notes and made a "V" for the rays coming down from the star by sponging with Daffodil Delight classic ink.  I glued this piece to the card base.

      The embossed layer is raised up with dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting in Basic Black from Greeting of the Season from the Holiday Mini and cut it out with the Apothecary Accents Framelit die.  This was matted with a layer of real red cardstock and attached with dimensionals.

      For the final touch, I used a two-way glue pen and lightly touched the star then sprinkled it with Dazzling Damonds and added a rhinestone in the center.  You can't see it in the photo but I misted the card front with a mixture of Champagne Mist and 70% alcohol to give it a little glimmer.


      Supplies:

      Stamps: Greetings of the Season Wood #128030 Clear #128033, First Christmas Wood #127988 Clear #127991

      Ink: Basic Black #126980, Daffodil Delight #126944, Versamark #102283

      Accessories: Big Shot #113439, Northern Flurry Folder #120902, Gold Embossing Powder #109129, Heat Tool #129053, Two-way Glue Pen #100425, Dazzling Diamonds, 102023, Rhinestone Basic Jewels #119246, Champagne Mist #116806

      Christmas Daydream Medallion

      Hello all my blogging friends!  I have another Christmas project to show you today.  It's a Christmas card made with the new Floral Frames Framelits Dies in the Annual Catalog.

      I embossed the first layer with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder leaving enough room on the bottom for the greeting.  I stamped the Daydream Medallion with Versamark and embossed it with Gold embossing powder.  I then cut a frame using two of the Floral Frames Framelit dies.  I attached this frame with dimensionals to the Petals-a-Plenty embossed layer.

      The ornament was stamped on Whisper White with Cherry Cobbler then punched out with the Ornament punch.  The scrolls on the ornament are outlined with the Two-way Glue Pen and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.

      I cut the leaves from Old Olive using the Little Leaves sizzlit die and attached to the embossed layer with Tombow liquid glue.  The ornament is attached using dimensionals and a glue dot is used for the Whisper White bow.


      Supplies:

      Stamps: Daydream Medallion Wood #126465 Clear #126467, More Merry Messages Wood #126400 Clear #126402, Delightful Decorations Wood #116517 Clear #127787

      Music Soothes the Soul.....

      Good morning everyone!  Here is a card I made from one of my signatures I use on a yahoo group.  

      The verse on the front of the card was done in My Digital Studio and printed on my printer.  The treble clef and note was cut with my Silhouette Cameo cutter.  The black scalloped trim was made with Stampin Up dotted scallop ribbon border punch.  The keyboard was done using Stampin' Up word window punch. 

      The roses I learned to make from my beautiful friend Angie Evans.  She has an ebook for sale that shows you how to make the most gorgeous flowers.  You can see her work on her site Penny Flowers.  If you are interested in purchasing her eBook, please send her an email at the address on her site. 


      Supplies:

      Stamps: None - Verse was done in My Digital Studio
      Ink: none
      Cardstock: Stampin' Up whisper white, basic black, garden green, real red
      Accessories: Stampin' Up word window punch, dotted scalloped border punch, Sizzlit leaves, stamens from stash and the Cameo die cutting machine. 

      Hope you like today's card. As always, your suggestions and comments are always welcomed.  Thank you for looking.

      Wedding Ensemble

      Good morning blogging friends.  During my absence, I received an order for 200 wedding invitations from a co-worker.  The layout for this ensemble came from Studio 8.  The bride's colors were Brilliant Blue (now retired) and Sahara Sand.

      This wedding ensemble consisted of the following:


      1. Save the Date Magnets.


      2. Wedding invitation consisting of the directions and rsvp card with envelopes.
          The wedding was held outside in a park so table number and menu cards were not needed.


      3. Wedding program fans.


      4. Thanks you cards with envelopes.

      As a gift to the wedding couple, I made two baskets full of wedding favors.  


      The day was warm and sunny and the wedding party looked just beautiful.  Everyone commented on the wedding ensemble which was posted on the photographer's website.  

      All the supplies were made with Stampin Up cardstock and designed in My Digital Studio.  

      I hope you enjoyed today's post.  Your suggestions and comments are always welcomed.  Thank you for looking.
