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!
