Pretties Kit and Fall and Christmas Card Samples

Catherine Projects

Hello Stamper Friends!

Today I will share with you some of the samples from my downline event, the SUpreme Soiree this past weekend.  The first card is the project I brought for a make and take, using the Charming Stamp Set and a silk flower from the Pretties Kit.  This stamp set was made to go with Stampin' Up's Simply Adorned Charms which are not available yet due to quality issues.  I'll let you know as soon as they are!

I have had a great time stamping with this stamp set on cards and projects!  Check here for more samples using Charming.


To color the silk flower, I used Stampin' Up Sponges, dabbed it in Crushed Curry ink and rubbed it on the petals.  Easy!

I have some talented friends, don'tcha think!?

If you are thinking about becoming a demonstrator, for the discount, for the fun, for the friends, or to make a couple hundred dollars a month extra, now is a great time!  We have the special Digital + Starter Kit…you can't go wrong!  You can read more about being a demo here

If you live in the Raleigh-Durham area, our group can't be beat!  We get together every month to stamp, have fun and learn from each other.  Our next event is on November 19th.  Let me know if you would like to join us!

The most typical question I get asked is “where do you get your ideas?”  Well, I get them from my downline and from Stampin' Up.  SU has an awesome magazine and website for demonstrators.  With all that help, I make it look easy!

If you are long-distance and don't have a demonstrator, I have programs in place to support long distance downline.  Ask me about it!

Have a wonderful Thursday!
