Another Baby Card...Zoo Babies. Stampin' Up!

I made this adorable pair of cards with envelopes which I cased from the talented Nikki Spencer. This one uses different colours and sentiment, but is very cute, don't you think?

Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Island Indigo is always a winning combination when you want a bright and cheerful card.

What's in the Clearance Rack?

This adorable little handbag Die Cut is available on the Clearance Rack over in the store. I just adore this bag, and have made many variations of it...which I can't show you since I have given them away! I will have to sit down and make up another batch of them so I can surprise my Stamp Class with a little treat on the Stamping Table.

How to join Stampin' Up!

How does an EXTRA $60 worth of product in your Starter Kit Sound?  If your wish list is as long as your arm, why not consider joining Stampin' Up! during Sale-a-Bration?
You will get 20% discount with every order, and there is no penalty if you decide to leave, you still get to keep the kit. Here are some FAQs for you if you are still on the fence.

FAQ about becoming a demonstrator

1. What are the minimum sales requirements?

You only need to submit $400 in sales per quarter. That is less than an average Stampin’ Up!® workshop! Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you wish and still receive your 20 percent discount and commission.

2. What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business?

Stampin’ Up! supports all demonstrators, no matter their goals or the level at which they choose to run their business. If you choose not to hold workshops, you can simply place your own orders and/or collect orders from family and friends to equal the $400 quarterly sales minimum.

3. Can I be my own hostess?

Yes, you can be your own hostess anytime you want. Invite your family and friends into your home and have a workshop. You will be the hostess, receiving the hostess benefits, as well as the demonstrator, receiving your instant income and commission.

4. How much does it cost to get started as a demonstrator?

The Starter Kit is only $169 (postage is included), and is fully customisable. You choose up to $235 worth of any current Stampin’ Up! products and you will also receive a business supplies pack, containing materials you need to run your business (valued at $80).

5. How can I make money as a demonstrator?

You can earn money in three ways: instant income (20 percent of each order), monthly volume rebates (4-15 percent of total sales), and monthly downline override commissions (2 to 6.5 percent of your recruits’ sales).

6. Do I have to recruit other demonstrators?

No. If you were to recruit demonstrators, you would be paid override commissions on your downline’s sales, but this is a perk, not a requirement.

7. Where will I get project ideas for my workshops? What kind of training can I expect?

Stampin’ Up! provides dozens of training resources filled with project ideas and tips to help you run every aspect of your business, including a monthly publication called Impressions®, Demonstrator Support agents, a demonstrator-only website, hundreds of samples, annual and seasonal catalogues, a training DVD, the Demonstrator Manual, and a Product Guide.

8. Is Stampin’ Up! a well-known, respected company?

Since 1988, Stampin’ Up! has been selling rubber stamps and paper-crafting supplies. In that time, not only have they won industry awards and accolades, but also the loyalty and admiration of demonstrators and customers alike. And that is a trend that we work hard to maintain. You can rest assured that the reputation of Stampin’ Up! will only continue to improve!

9. What if I decide that I don’t like it once I’ve started? Will I be penalised if I quit?

You may choose to stop at anytime, and you will not be penalized. You simply stop placing orders. However, there are many benefits to remaining an active demonstrator.

Vellum Glimmer Butterfly Card. New Catalogue. Stampin' Up! Australia



Sometimes a small card can pack a big punch. Bling, pearls, vellum and 4 different ink colours come together beautifully in this tiny gem, which was inspired by a sample on page 10 of the new Occasions Catalogue.
This  3 x 3 card has it's own little vellum envelope, created with one of the free products in the Sale-A Bration catalogue, Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack #141019.
The Number of Years Bundle #140811, and the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper #140550 are from the new Occasions Catalogue.
Ink colours used were Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Pool Party and Wild Wasabi.
The measurements for the vellum envelope (using the Envelope Punch Board) are, cut your vellum to 5/1/4" x 5 1/4" ( 13.3cm x 13.3cm), use one of the leftover pieces for your card, and your first score line is at 2 5/8" ( 6.7cm ).

Bird on a Wire, Stampin' Up! Style. 2 Versions.


I love finding new ways to use old favourites. I originally made many traditional cards using the bird builder punch, then decided I wanted something modern with a silhouette feel. I bent the Bordering Blooms Photopolymer stamp (it's easy to bend these into different shapes when placing them on your acrylic block)   and used a sentiment from the Tin of Cards stamp set. I cut 2.5cm off the bottom of the card to minimise the negative space, then rounded the bottom corners. Daffodil Delight and Basic black work well together, don't you think?

This card was even simpler, I used melon mambo card and rounded the bottom corners, and used the stamp from Age Awareness . I drew a curved line using the brush tip of a Basic Black marker to sit the little bird on.
