Thinking Of You With Grateful Bunch!

Thinking Of You With Grateful Bunch!

This Occasions Catalog has been my most favorite to date!  I’ve been at this Stampin’ Up! thing for almost ten (10) years and I have to say it seems to get better than ever each year.  Honestly, as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I guess you could say that I should feel exhilarated with each catalog, but some years, it just doesn’t do it for me.  For example, this past Holiday Catalog wasn’t feeling the love for me!  Okay!  I said it!  One thing you won’t find me saying is that I love everything in all catalogs.

I don’t know about you, but I go to the bundles right away!  I LOVE to see what my 15% discount will get me on top of my 25% discount for being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  Now you are probably thinking to yourself, “I don’t get 25%?!”  I only get 20% discount on purchases.  Well, I will tell you that my title allows me that extra 5%.  I’ve earned it!  If you are a Bronze Elite or above, your discount is 25%!

Using the Archival Basic Black ink, I stamped the flower image and then colored it in with my Crushed Curry marker.  Punching them out, adding a dimensional and then a little rhinestone to the center completes the look.

The “Thinking Of You” is from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set which has some wonderful sentiments to add to your cards.

Stampin’ Up! | Grateful Bunch | Best Wishes Card

Don’t you just love it when Stampin’ Up! pairs a stamp set with a punch, framelit or die?!  Ugh!  I really don’t like cutting out images if I don’t have to, so it makes my heart happy to have those little extra tools handy.  This wonderful little set is bundled together for a 15% discount.

Oh Darn!  I forgot to add the Petite Pairs to the Stampin’ Supplies list!  No worries!  Lots of great sentiments to use for just about every occasion.

Notice the little butterfly next to Best Wishes?!  I thought the card needed a little something and when I was going through my stash of stamps, believe it or not, that little image just jumped out at me.  That image is part of Flowering Fields which is a Sale A Bration Set!  There are some adorable images from that set.  I can’t wait to break out the rest of the flowers and play!

Grateful Bunch-Stampin’ Up!

Grateful Bunch

My inspiration came today from the Stampin’ Success magazine that Stampin’ Up! puts out for demonstrators.  I stamped the base cardstock in the outline of the dotted leaf image and added a small piece of “It’s My Party” Designer Series Paper to the edge.

Christine’s Tips:

  • The Grateful Bunch stamp set bundles with the Blossom Bunch punch for 15% discount!
  • Stamp the flowers with our NEW Archival Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  The ink is perfect to add some color with your Stampin’ Markers.  Now that Stampin’ Up! redesigned this wonderful black ink, it is of superior quality and doesn’t bleed.  You’ll be glad for that!
  • Pop each flower up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Probably the one adhesive I simply can’t do without.
