Two More Cards...

I made these cards as a "thank you" to 2 of my customers who are holding a catalog party through me. I hope they enjoy them.

I used the Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper, the stamp set Polka Dot Punches, and the Certainly Celery ribbon that you can receive free for a limited time during the Sale-a-bration on this card.

On this card, I used one of my favorite new sets, Cheep Talk. The bird is so cute! And it matches the chipboard So Tweet and the Good Morning Sunshine paper pack. Love it all! Check them out here:

I'm really fond of the colors in the Delicate Dots paper you can earn during the Sale-a-bration. The colors just scream SPRING! Making my case of spring fever even more unbearable, lol. I'm really being drawn to these papers and colors, so I used more of the Delicate Dots paper on this card. I stamped the adorable bird exclaiming my thanks in So Saffron. Then I made a tiny little dot with my Stampin' Write marker in Bashful Blue for the eye. I colored the tree branch stamp with my Stampin' Write markers in Close to Cocoa and the leaves in Certainly Celery.
I just have to take a second to share how much I LOVE my Stampin' Write Markers!! I purchased them over 5 years ago and they still work perfectly. I was not able to afford each color Stampin' ink pad so I went ahead and bought the entire Stampin' Write Markers set including every color. It is the best purchase I've made as far as stamping tools go. It seriously opened the doors to my creativity! Before I had the markers I was very limited with the few ink pads I had. Using the markers brush tip gives me the ability to stamp in any color I need, and I'm able to write my journaling or add detail with the writing tip matching or coordinating with any of the papers. It really is awesome! If you would like to be able to expand your stamping color choices you should definitely check out these markers (click here!)

Right now I'm working on a gift box to hold a few goodies to send off to the hostesses of the catalog parties. I'll post those soon.

Remember, even if you don't live close enough to have me come demonstrate in your home, you can always host a catalog party and still earn all the hostess benefits (click here to read more about hostess benefits)! Right now during the Sale-a-bration you can earn even more great goodies by hosting a party, plus your friends get to earn free stuff too! Just contact me through my Stampin' Up! website (click here) and I'll get all you need mailed out asap!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

I also love the bird card, and I'm happy to be the one who got it! I really hope to be able to get a lot of orders for my catalog party (because it will provide more income for you, as well as more free products for me)!!
