Clearance Rack Blitz

Stampin' Up! announced today that they are having a CLEARANCE RACK BLITZ with items that have been discounted up to 80% off.  They have added a bunch of punches to the rack and some of the items are in the current Stampin' Up! catalog.

If you want to order on your own rather than contacting me, just simply create an account on Stampin' Up!'s site.  Once you create your profile, at the bottom of the page select that you have a demonstrator and it will take you to a search page.  In the section marked "Demonstrator Directory" put in my first and last name (Stephanie Heumann) as well as my city, state, and zip code (Rancho Cordova, CA 95670).  My name should pop-up in a window then select the bubble next to my name.  It's as simple as that!

Don't miss this fabulous opportunity to get some great deals, but hurry because supplies are limited.  This deal runs through January 5, 2012.

Chirstmas Lodge

Good morning all!  I wanted to share this card with you because I am so happy with how it turned out!  I would love to visit this place in person.  I used the Christmas Lodge set from the Holiday Mini catalog.  To get the snow effect I used a white gel pen and the Cherry Cobbler satin ribbon adds such a nice touch.  The wood grain background comes from the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series paper.  Thanks to Deb Currier for the fab idea.

Be sure to mark your calendar.  Our next Stampers 10 Club class will be held on Friday, January 13th @ 7pm.  As always, it will be held at my home.

More Christmas Samples

This year I participated in Laine Holman's Holiday Craft Boutique.  This gave me the opportunity to really play with my stamps and accessories.  Here are some of the items I sold at the boutique.  Of course, my inspiration came from other demonstrator's art.  Some of those women include Jill Hilliard, Illina Crouse, Valita, and Lorri Heiling.  Thanks so much!

November Stampers 10 Samples

Crunchy leaves and cooler temperatures inspired these 2 cards!  The first card is a monochromatic card using Night of Navy ink that features the Christmas Lodge set in the Holiday Mini Catalog and one of my favorite sets, Lovely As A Tree.  I especially enjoyed playing with the Silver Glimmer Paper to create sparkly snow drifts.  
The second card features a great collage set called French Foliage and what makes this card really special is the clear embossing on the vanilla card stock.  Once the embossing dried, I repeated the process several more times and then bent the paper to create a "cracked glass" appearance.  
Many thanks to Melany Watson for her original idea for the Christmas Lodge card!
