Artisan Wednesday Wild Card- Hello Little Love


Welcome to Artisan Wow Wednesday Blog Hop- WILDCARD edition!!
You've probably just arrived here from Cindy Beach's Blog. 
I'm so excited to see her creations each month! And speaking of Cindy, did you see her post on the SU Blog this week! Make sure you check it out, she's wonderful!


So, with the door wide open to create anything we wanted, I went with a scrapbook page. I used a mixture of Stampin' Up Products, all my "go to's" right now!
this little yummy creature is my one and only nephew, Jack. I LOVE him! I don't get to see him very often because he lives in another part of Texas, but my sister in law is great about sending lots of pictures. He is a HAM and makes the funniest faces! We giggle every time we see a picture of him. 

I created a rainbow of sorts using the new Mosaic Punch. It's a great shape, so different from anything else I have. I punched lots of Strawberry Slush, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Coastal Cabana and Rich Razzleberry Mosaic pieces. Some, I doubled up and folded one in half and adhered it on top of the flat piece. I ran my sewing machine, using similar thread, all the way through each row. 

My next favorite thing to do right now is to fire up MDS and transfer over images to me electronic cutter! Wow! What an easy way to create a title!!! Love it! So, each word you see in the title, is actually a stamp in MDS!!  I also used several arrows from the photopolymer sets Show and Tell 1 and 2. 


So, I decided to give a really fun Blog Candy away this week. I preordered the Mosaic Punch and Mosaic Madness stamp set back in April and then it was in my May Artisan Box. So, I have an extra of each! 


Would you like to have it?? 
Well,I'm giving it away! 

You can enter 4 ways:

 4. Pin it (hover over one of the pictures and you will see a Pin It button) and then follow me on Pinterest.

So, to recap you can enter 4 times. And, you will win the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set, Mosaic Punch and there just might be a card and some ribbon thrown in there as well! ;-) Yay! Fun! I love a GIVEAWAY! I will draw a name first thing Saturday morning.

New In Color DSP Stacks

One thing I was very upset to see on the SU Retired List was the DSP Stacks. But, being the brilliant people they are, SU just replaced them with new ones! And, I can't get enough of them! I was blessed to receive them in my Artisan Box this month and I've already used half of it! These will be on my very first order!


For last weekends Catalog party, I covered a few wooden spools with some of the in color DSP pieces just so everyone could get a feel for them . Chevron? Yes, Please!!!


Yumm-o!

I also used them to make this cute little banner. By the time i went to take a picture of it, it was a little weary. It had been on my front door and it poured that day...

I used me e-cutter and MDS to create the letters. I believe I used the Epic Overlays alphabet to create the letters. 

The Pennant Die was used as well as the large Scallop Circle Punch, 

If you want to get in on the new DSP Stack Share, make sure you check it out HERE.

Catalog Sneak Peak Party

This weekend, I held my annual Catalog Sneak Peak Party and Retirement Giveaway. It was a BLAST!
I woke up to flash flooding and the weather man and city Mayor telling everyone to stay at home. I was very worried that no one would come! But, my customers are the best and they love Stampin' up as much as me, They didn't let the weather stand in the way of getting their new catalog!


This was my main display I wanted to get a little fancy for the party and did a little decorating. 

My club members got an extra special catalog. I bound all of their catalogs with hot pink binders! They loved it!

All of my guests (non club members)  received a free catalog as well. 

I used my e-cutter to quickly cut a bunch of little birds in the new In Colors. 
The bird is from Birds of a Feather CD (retired list!)

The little birds served as label holders to let everyone know where things were. 



We had three make and takes. Each one featured the new In Colors and new stamps. One was a tag featuring Mosaic Madness. .

Another was a card featuring Label Love. 


And the third was this great bookmark I borrowed from Brenda Quintana.


Everyone had the opportunity to join product shares, join a club or sign up for a workshop. I even gave new ink pads to those who signed up for club or to be a hostess!


The big draw is always my retired product giveaway. My customers decided what they were going to order from the new catalog on Friday. Then, they got to pick that much in retired merchandise for free!  


So, despite a very rainy day, it was VERY sunny inside! 
We had a blast and I am so grateful for my wonderful customers!! 

I am offering you, my long distance customers, a chance to order on Friday as well. You can use Hostess Code RJEUEXQF to order from the new catalog (starting Friday).
 I will give a new In Color Ink Pad to the first five people who order!!

If you would like a new catalog, I would be happy to send you one! The catalog itself is free, and I will split the shipping with you. The shipping will be $2.65. Email me if you'd like one!!
