July is a very busy month for us at Stampin' Up! ® The New July thorugh December Mini Catalog launched on July 1st, and we have started Sale A Bration July through August. Both are very exciting and offer great products. 

With the launch of the two catalogs I wanted to make some simple but elegant Thank You cards. I thought the new Texture Chic DSP from the New Annual Catalog (2022-2023) would be perfect. One side of each patteren has gold through out the paper making this the perfect paper for any occassion.

Stampin' Up! ® Splended Day Suite found in the New Mini Catalog July 1 2022

 Greetings from Suzie Q!

June has been a busy month with card classes, planning a Christmas in July Card Buffet and many other family issues.  I always have grand ideas but have a difficult time making those happen. I'm sure I'm not alone. We all have busy lives, family activities, work, children's activities, church, and many other obligations. Sometimes we just have to sit back and relax. For me that means spending time in my studio creating just for fun or preparing for my Facebook Live on Thursdays.

I would love for you to join me each Thursday at 3:00pm CDT on my Facebook page, SuzieQsStamping. I demonstrate 3 cards. Then give those cards away to a lucky person who comments.

Today I wanted to share the cards for today, I used the Splended Day Suite found in the New Mini Catalog that lauches on July 1st. I love the paper! It is the focus of my cards and who wouldn't like to get a pretty card in the mail. Nothing trick about these cards, the measurements are basic A-2 size.

June 2022 Demonstrator Blog Hop Featuring the "Sending Smiles" Bundle

 

Hello, welcome to the June 2022 Demonstrator Training Blog Hop. I am so glad you stopped by!

June has been an excitng month with the New Annual Catalog release in May. There are so many wonderful new and returning products. Stampin' Up! ® is offering a special buy one get one 50% off on the Kit Collections until June 30th. You can check those out on my online store under the Kits Collection tab.

I also celebrated a mile stone Birthday! For those in the US turning 62 means we can apply for Social Security and retire. Yea! I am excited to offically be retired. 

Enough about that. Let me tell you about the Blog Hop. I am one of many Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators participating in Kylie Bertucci's Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop.  Demonstrators from around the world participate each month in this Blog Hop, I can't wait for you to see all the beautiful cards made this month. Each of us are working towards building our business and reaching goals we have set for the year. We truly appreciate your support! 

I spent a weekend away with my darling hubby and while he attended a Veterans of Forgien War convention (he is the Commander of his VFW Post) I spent the time STAMPING! I enjoyed the quiet and creating time I had. I chose to use a design from a demonstrator friend Deveda in Kansas City, MO. I used different colors but I just loved her concept. 

Each of my customers will receive this card as a Thank You this month.

The card base is Polish Pink with a layer of Soft Succulent. I stamped the flowers on a piece of Basic White using Polish Pink, Fresh Freeshia, Pale Papaya, and Daffodil Delight for the flower centers, Soft Succulent ink was used for the leaves. I used our adhesive foam sheets to die cut the bottom "sending" layer from Soft Succulent. I then die cut the word "Sending" Polish Pink. I used the adhesive sheets so it was easier to layer the intricate die shape. You can't really tell in the picture how pretty the colors coordinate. I used the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels (discontinued) for bling. You could use the 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds found in the 2022-2022 catalog as your bling. 

This card went together super fast using the Stampratus. My greeting was stamped on scraps of Basic White layered on scraps of Soft Succulent. I hope you like it and give it a try using any colors that coordinate. Any greeting from the Sending Smiles stamp set would be awesome! 

Please visit the other blogs for more great cards. 

Again, thanks for stopping by. If you don't already have a Demonstrator I would love to help you with all your stamping needs.

Do what you Love, Love what you Do!
