1. As a hostess or customer: You probably already know that when you host a party you can earn free Stampin' Up! product. As a demonstrator, I can still take advantage of this awesome reward! When I submit orders over $150, either a group of smaller customer orders or my own order, I can get the host benefits for that "party!" Likewise, when there are customer promotions, like Sale-A-Bration, I can also earn those rewards. This isn't true for every direct sales company, so it's definitely something I love.
2. Attending events: Many Stampin' Up! events also include goodies - like free stamps!
3. Prizes: Occasionally, there are company-wide challenges or special incentives within my team where I might win free stamps.
4. Product credits: During Sale-A-Bration, demonstrators can earn product credits. Also, when you reach the 2nd level in Stampin' Up!, you begin earning 2% of your quarterly sales as an additional product credit. How awesome is that?!?
If you would like to start earning free stamps as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would love to talk to you more about it! Just leave a comment and send me an email and we'll chat.
Pretty Cards & Paper Blog Hop
This month, the international design team for the Pretty Cards & Paper blog hop has created some fabulous cards using the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper. I hope you'll take a few minutes and go check out their amazing work!
Did you know that the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and punch from the new 2021 January-June Mini catalog and the Berry Blessings stamp set and patterned paper from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration brochure were designed to go together? When you see how gorgeous this patterned paper is and how well it works with the Sweet Strawberry stamps, you're not going to want to pass it up! Plus, you can get the Berry Blessings bundle for FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. Patterned papers are always a hot Sale-A-Bration item, so be sure to snag this free bundle before it's gone. Alright, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Hello there Berry Blessings
My last card uses the blackberry/raspberry stamps from the Berry Blessings stamp set and the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry set. I stamped the vine from the Sweet Strawberry set with Blackberry Bliss ink on Rich Razzleberry cardstock. Then, I embossed the Rich Razzleberry cardstock with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. I cut the frame from the sentiment using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and tied it with the new striped Blackberry Bliss ribbon. I love this ribbon because it is so easy to tie and holds its shape beautifully in bows!
Have you seen the Peony Garden Suite of products?! They are absolutely gorgeous and are found in the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog on pages 82-83. While the entire collection of stamps, dies, papers, and embellishments is fabulous, sometimes I think we forget that patterned paper can be used with other stamp sets than those in the suite. Today, I have created three cards using the Peony Garden patterned paper in the Stampin' Up! equivalent of the 2021 Pantone Colors of the year. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
