Hi Stampers!

Continuing with some Christmas creativity.  Here's another card that I CASEd from last month's Stampin' Success! magazine.

There are always SO many ideas in each issue, and have I ever mentioned that as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I get this great publication every other month absolutely FREE?  It's just one of the many perks of being an SU! demo.  If you've ever thought about signing up, even just to get the great discount, you should talk to me - I'd love to tell you all about it, and I'd be honored to welcome you to my team of Cross Country Crafty Chicks.  For just $99, you get our fabulous customizable "your way" Starter Kit which features:

  • Your choice of up to $125 worth of any current Stampin' Up! products!
  • A business supply pack valued at $65!

  • That's a total value of $190!  No obligation to continue, and the quarterly minimums are a low $300 (which you get our great demo discount on).  You can feel free to be a hobby or business demo, whatever's comfortable for you.  Whichever you choose to do, I'll be here for you as much or as little as you need me.  Think about it!

    ANYWAY - back to the card :)

    Let me just tell you how much use I am getting out of the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Pack.  We've made cards from this stack at September's Calendar Club, I've used it on several cards (like the one below), we'll use it again in November for our Calendar Club cards, and I'm not even half way through the pack yet!  It's a bargain at only $6.95!  Check page 29 of your Holiday Catalog.  It's a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" stack of 48 sheets (24 each of 2 double-sided designs), sized for card fronts.  I'm loving the cool color combo.

    I used my Chevron embossing folder on Smokey Slate cardstock and cut two wide banners from the DSP stack.  I also cut out a snowflake using our new Silver Foil paper, cut out a smaller one from Coastal Cabana cardstock & stamped it in Smokey Slate, added a Vintage Faceted button & some Baker's Twine, along with a little blinged up sentiment from the retired set More Merry Messages.
    Some demos choose to feature only current stock in their classes, but I kind of remember what my ladies have bought in the past, and sometimes I enjoy showing them new, fresh ways to use the stamp sets I know they already have at home :)  The great thing about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that I can run my business "My Way" to make it work for ME!
    This will be one of this month's Calendar Club cards, as well.  Let me know how you like this one - leave me a comment!
    Happy stampin'!
