Party Panda's Incentive card

Hello Stampers!  Today I have a fun card and a video to show you!  I am starting a new program.  Every month I will design a card which will be my ordering incentive for the month.  If you place an online order during that month, you will receive a kit of the consumables to make that card.  The images will NOT be stamped, since I am not allowed to do that per Stampin' Up! rules.  You can copy my card exactly or use your own stamp sets to create your own card!  I will include embossing though.

Here is the card that I made and an alternative card using the same consumables:

Party Pandas, Bella & Friends, Inkin With Dink

 And here is my video as I show you how to make the card on the left!  Enjoy!

Let me know if you have any questions and be sure to use hostess code DYCDKHXD when you place an order in my online store during January 2018!

Swaps are done!!!

Hello Stampers!  Well, I got my swaps finished!  Yea!  And about a week before I leave for OnStage!  That never happens!  But it had to this time because I leave Sunday to go to my mom's to do a private party and won't get home until Tuesday.  Then I leave Wednesday for OnStage!!!  So I had to get them done early!  Want to see them?

Happy Celebrations, Inkin With Dink I made 50 of these!  10 were in Berry Burst, 10 were Lemon Lime Twist, 10 were Fresh Fig, 10 were Tranquil Tide, and 10 were Powder Pink!

I stamped the Happy from Happy Celebrations stamp set on designer series paper from the Fresh Florals designer stack.  I then fussy cut (yes, 250 letters total!!!) the letters out!  I LOVE to fussy cut! I find it very relaxing!

The background white piece has been embossed with the Sparkle embossing folder.

Can't wait to get to OnStage to swap them and see all of the fabulous swaps I get back in return!!

Summer swaps

Hello Stampers!  I'm out of town for a few days so I don't have anything new to share today!  My youngest daughter moved into her new college apartment on Saturday, and my oldest daughter moved about 4 hours away to start her first teaching job!  She is super excited, and so am I, and she asked me to come help her set up her classroom.  So I'm currently out of town and will return this week.

Anyway, today I thought I would share with you the swaps that I received from my last team meeting.  Our theme for the month was summer.  Here they are:

Happy Birthday to me!

Hello Stampers!  Today is my birthday!  And it's a big one!!!  When my family asked me what I wanted to do today, I said I want to go out to eat and I really just want to stay home and make cards!  There aren't many people who love their job enough that that is what they want to do on their birthday!  I feel so blessed and lucky!

I also feel blessed because I received several handmade cards for my birthday!  Here are some of the cards that I received:
