I am so excited, so much happens today. The Last Chance List is here, and as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I can pre-order items from the upcoming catalog, today is also the day you can sign up to be a Demonstrator for only $99.00 and you can begin pre-ordering stuff too! You could even be attending Convention in July too (if you sign up before June 18, that is the convention deadline unless they fill up before then).
But first things first. I was organizing this weekend, and rearranging my ink pads, pulling out the ones that are retiring. I am kinda anal and I organize all my stuff, stamps, cardstock, inks etc. alphabetically so I made these labels up a couple years ago to put on the ends of the ink pads, it helps me keep them in order, I had to re-do them cause all the ink pads changed places, it was like musical ink pads around here.
Here is the file if you are interested in putting them on your ink pads too. It fits on a 5160 mailing label and I use the word window punch to punch the words out. If you are going to store your pads a different way, just remove the number before you print them. Download Updated color collection labels
The Last Chance List is here, and if you go here, you can check it out on my on-line store by category.
If you want a printable list so you can sit with your catalog while you drink your morning coffee, here ya go:
Remember if there is something you have had your heart set on, don't delay in ordering it. Some items will only be available while supplies last.
Here is some more information on the awesome Mini Starter kit for $99.00. Download 99 starter kit form To sign up online, you will need my password and that is TOBY. Ask about my $40.00 incentive for joining my Di's Country INKers team, I would love to have you be part of my family.
Don't forget about my free stamp set of the week that ends tomorrow, June 2, so if you see those retiring items you are wanting, this could be a win/win situation.
Now to a card that I think turned out so beautiful, and this is also going to be my FLICKs (FIRST LEVEL INCENTIVE CARD KITs) card for my Demonstrators that earned them for May.
As I was making it I was watching the movie Man in the Moon, boy Reese Witherspoon was young in that, and oh how sad about the guy she had a crush on. With my Dad and Mum in the farming business, and Jeff's Dad and Mum retired from the farming business, I can't tell you how many farming accidents I have heard about over the years, my Dad was even in a couple.
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Island Oasis DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Bermuda Bay
Misc: White Satin, Polka Dot Impressions folder
To get this look, I inked up the stamp with the markers, and then I stamped it once and barely lifted it off the paper, and stamped it again repeatedly by moving it to the left and right giving it a blurry kinda motiony look, I liked it.
I hope you had a great long weekend.
Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in!
