I feel so Wicked!

I was lucky enough to get to see Wicked on Sunday night with my little sister Mary. We had a blast before, during AND after the show. We always keep each other laughing, it was a really fun evening. The show was awesome as well and, as I was looking through my stamp room for things I hadn't shared with you yet, I came across this card. It was made by my friend, Jen Slater. Jen is a huge Wicked fan and got to see it THREE times while it was in town. Lucky girl :)

Wasn't it clever of her to only ink up and stamp the word "Wicked" from the stamp on the left? I'm assuming she did this with a Stampin' Write Marker... The card uses a couple of items I want to call attention to: Wicked Cool stamp set from page 23 in the IB&C (current Idea Book & Catalog) and the Raven 1/2" Lace Trim is in our new Holiday Mini Catalog that you can order from on September 1st. Oh WOW, that's tomorrow already, isn't it?!?! Is that even possible?

Well, I hope you enjoy the card. Feel free to post comments for Jen, I think this card is Wicked Cute!!! (See what I mean? I'm cracking myself up right now! LOL!) Thanks Jen!

Have a great day,

Terri :)

Riley says...

Here's a picture of my Stamping 'Helper' Riley! He was rather bored and a little irritated with me this morning when I insisted on taking his picture with a Tiara on. LOL! He looks so cute in it, but doesn't really like wearing it (Seriously, what BOY, dog or human would?). First he said "Mom, PLEASE stop taking crazy pictures of me in this tiara. Do you want all the other dogs to think I'm a sissy?" And then later he said to be sure to remind you that TODAY is the last day to order from the Summer Mini Catalog. Gotta love a dog that's SO into Stampin' Up! Ha, ha! Thanks to my friend Terri who brought me several of these cute little Tiara combs last week. She knows I like to play Diva when I'm stamping (even if Riley doesn't!).

1/8" Taffeta & 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon Buys

For a Limited Time, I'm offering the following Group Buys:

Q: Wait, what exactly is a Group Buy?
A: It's where a group of people go together to purchase a lot of product that would normally cost them alot of money and give them way more product than they could personally use, or need. By splitting up the product, everyone gets a smaller amount and spends a lot less money. This is a great way to get a variety of product for a small price!

1/8" Taffeta Ribbon Group Buy
Cost: $7.00 / share

Each share will include a total of 13 yards of the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbons. That's ONE YARD EACH of the following colors: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Early Espresso & Basic Black.

Call or email me to take advantage of either of these Group Buys. Available only until I fill 2 groups or September 15th, whichever comes first. Don't miss out!

Stamper's "6" Clubs now forming!

Would you like to receive $15 in Free Merchandise and a Hostess Level 1 Stamp Set? How about demonstrations and 2 free Make & Take Projects each month? Can you commit to purchasing $25 in catalog product each month for the next 6 months?

If you've answered yes to all of these questions (and, seriously, what stamper wouldn't?!), then You're Invited!

You're Invited to join a Stamper's "6" Club and take advantage of everything I listed above! What is this, you ask? Well, it's where 6 members agree to purchase a minimum of $25 in catalog merchandise each month, for 6 months. We'll get together once a month to collect orders, see some product demonstrations, and make 2 small Make & Take projects. The members will take turn being the hostess and will receive Hostess benefits for their month. The only thing you're required to do is place your minimum order each month and bring snacks and drinks for the month you're hostess! It's a lot of fun!

We have openings in the following groups:
  • First Thursday Afternoon of Each Month, 1-3pm, Sept-Feb, First Mtg is September 2nd
  • Third Thursday Evening of Each Month, 7-9pm, Sept-Feb, First Mtg is Sept 16th
  • Third Friday Morning of Each Month, 10am-Noon, Sept-Feb, First Mtg is Sept 17th

Some Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Which month will I be hostess?

A: At our first meeting we'll draw numbers, when your number is chosen you'll choose from the months that are still available.

Q: What if I can't make it to the meeting one month?

A: You'll still be responsible for placing an order, prior to the meeting so we can get the orders placed right away. It's not fair to your other club members if their orders are held up to wait for yours. You can contact me and place the order over the phone and either place it on a credit card or drop off a check to me.

Q: If I don't make it to a meeting, will I still get my Make & Take projects?

A: You'll receive the packet, but your projects will not be completed.

Q: What kind of snacks and drinks will I need to bring?

A: Keep it simple! Bottles of Water and chocolates or small finger foods are sufficient. Remember, we'll be busy stamping so food is not the focal point!

Q: Why do I need to place an order during my month as Hostess?

A: Because the club benefits depend on each and every member placing an order to get to the minimum workshop amount ($150 total), you won't be able to receive Hostess Benefits if you don't place an order during your hostess month.

Q: Can I get extra orders during my Hostess Month?

A: Absolutely! You can collect outside orders, OR invite others to join us for the meeting during your month. As long as they place a $25 order, they'll get to make the projects as well! Extra orders will increase your Hostess Benefits (see complete chart on page 9 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog).

So, are you ready to sign up yet? Contact me if you have other questions, or to sign up for one of the groups above. I am open to starting other clubs if you have a specific day / time that you're available, just ask!

Talk to you soon,

Tropical Mini Thank You's!

These are some sweet little Thank You notes that I whipped up recently for my customer orders. I was inspired by one of the ladies in my group, Dawn Buck, who had created a wonderful ensemble of cards in a tote using the same set. I started with Old Olive 3x3 note cards (hand-cut, I can get 8 of these out of a piece of 12x12 cardstock!), and added the Palm Leaf print paper from the Island Oasis Designer Series Papers in the Summer Mini Catalog (these items are only available through August 31st!) cut to 2-7/8" square. Next I colored the Palm Tree stamp from Tropical Party Stamp Set (Summer Mini Catalog also) with Old Olive and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers and stamped onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut to 1-3/4" x 2-1/2". Palm Fronds from the same set were stamped in Old Olive at the bottom. Next I took a Stampin' Sponge and sponged Peach Parfait and Tempting Turquoise inks to cover up most of the white cardstock. I think this is the step that totally transformed these images and made them look like a tropical postcard! (Dawn did this to her items too, she's a genius!)

I mounted the finished image onto a piece of Old Olive Cardstock cut to 1-7/8" by 2-5/8" and glued it down to the left-hand side of the front of the card. To finish I stamped Thank You on the front right-hand side in Early Espresso ink. (Thank You is from the set Curly Cute from the current catalog). These little notes fit into our 3x3 envelopes (which, of course, I also stamped :)) These are perfect for little tuck-in notes, but alas, the Post Office will NOT deliver them... Just so ya know!

You can only order the Tropical Party Stamp set in either Wood Mount or Clear Mount, and the Island Oasis DSP through Aug 31st. All other items are in the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog. See complete item list below:
