how to make a card with Designer Tee – encouragement for my team

Chicago Area Stampin' Up! Open House
Hi guys! I promised I would be back today to show you how to make a card with Stampin’ Up! Designer Tee. This is one of the make n takes that were available at my Open House on Friday. I know with Spring Break lots of you wanted to stop in but couldn’t. Below there is a video tutorial and printable project sheet to teach you how to make a card like mine, but first a little about who these cards are designed for:

I am sending these cards out to my team to encourage them in their Stampin Up! business. I have lots of girls on my team and each one has a different goal with Stampin’ Up!.

Some want to make Stampin’ Up! a full time job so they can earn an income.

Some want make their quarterly minimum so that they can keep “in the know” with Stampin’ Up! and they can continue to get a great discount.

Most of my Stampin’ Up! team is somewhere in between those two goals. I love them all and honor their goals. I am proud of any steps they take to be successful as they define it. As a Stampin’ Up! team, we have had a great Sale-a-bration and I want to encourage them in the last days of the promotion.

Free Pretty Pocket Card Kit when you place a Stampin Up Sale a bration Order

place a stampin up sale a bration order
Hey Guys! Have you seen the Pretty Pocket Card Kit you can get FREE when you place a Stampin Up Sale a bration order? I am just in love with this kit. The colors are soft and bright. It just screams SPRING!

This kit makes an easy adorable pocket card but it can be kicked up for a more experienced paper crafter. Take a look at these two videos.

This first video is Stampin’ Up!‘s video showing the kit as intended. The all inclusive kit makes eight pocket cards quickly and includes matching envelopes.

The second video is my kicked up version. I added flowers from the Swirly Bird stamp set stamped in Pool Party, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry and Wild Wasabi.

Whether you keep it simple or kick it up, both versions are a satisfying craft. What’s even better yet, the kit is free with a $50 order. Take a look at your wish list and place a Stampin Up Sale a bration order now because the Pretty Pocket Card Kit, like the other Sale a bration items, is only available while supplies last.

Stampin’ Up! Just Keep Swimming + FREE Avant Garden Wonder Recipe #2


Hey Guys!
I can not wait to do some card making and stamping! I have set aside most of this weekend, starting as soon as I am done with this post, for paper crafts. Squee!

Today I have a Wonder Recipe #2 card for you featuring Stampin’ Up! Just Keep Swimming (2017 Occasions Catalog), Avant Garden (FREE with a $50 order for Sale-a-bration) and Writing Notes Background Stamp (2016-17 Annual Catalog).

Sale-a-bration is ON now! Don’t miss your chance to receive products like Avant Garden FREE.

Shop HERE – use the host code: C4K7JP7Q for a special thank you gift from me.

TRUE STORY:

Monday I needed a quick card that was smaller than 4 1/4″ wide because I was sending it with a project kit in an A10 envelope.

It had to be quick because I didn’t realize that A10 envelopes wouldn’t accommodate the 5 1/2 x 4 1/4″ cards I had already made!

I really wanted to get the project kit out to my customers that day! How was I going to do that if I had to design (and make bunches of) an entirely new thank you card??

WONDER RECIPE #2, that’s how!

I grabbed my 6 x 6″ Playful Palette DSP and cut a sheet according to the Wonder Recipe #2.

I gathered stamps, cardstock and ink. Stampin’ Up! supplies all coordinate perfectly with each other.

This card came together so quickly, and with the Wonder Recipe, I was able to make it in multiples of six with no waste.

I had plenty of cards to send and some to save for later. AWESOME.

Enjoy the video tutorial and the printable project sheet with cutting diagram, measurements and supply list.

THank you for stopping by today! May you make many cards this weekend too!

Hey Guys!
I don’t have a lot of time right now, life is handing me my lunch! I have to help with Mini Courses at school this week. Next week I have a Valentine’s Day party to plan and attend at the elementary school.

If I owe you a card or catalogs they are out today so keep an eye peeled.

I have a few extra Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs. Do you want one? If you don’t have a demonstrator, I would be happy to send them to you, my treat, just email me.

I am blogging only three times this week and three times next week. I know I have been getting you used to four posts a week. I don’t know if I can keep that pace over Valentine’s Day as a room mom. 😉

Thank you for all the love, support, and patients!

Now on to today’s project. I love this great Ghirardelli Matchbook Valentine Treat Holder because it is so easy to make and it is a beautiful presentation! I used a Stampin’ Up! Host Only stamp set called Pun Intended. Pun Intended is just $9.50, and the only way to buy it with Stampin’ Rewards.
