Host a Party with Stampin'Up!

HOW IT WORKS

STEP 1: CONTACT A DEMONSTRATOR
They will guide you through your creative crafting experience.
Already know a demonstrator? Connect with them here.
Still looking? Find one near you here.
Look for Betty Manghi if you want to have me help you. Keep searching if you know another demonstrator or want someone close to you.
I live in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada
STEP 2: SET A DATE AND MAKE A PLAN
Want a party at your place where you and your friends each make a card? Or maybe you’d rather put together a fun kit. Your demonstrator will walk you through the options and then create your party plan!
STEP 3: INVITE YOUR FRIENDS
Use postcards, social media, email, calls, or texts—invite your friends and tell them to get ready for a great time. Your demonstrator can help you figure out how to get the word out and what to say.
STEP 4: IT’S PARTY TIME! ENJOY YOURSELF
Enjoy being with your friends and unwinding as you get creative and see your finished craft project. You and your friends will also get the chance to buy your favorite Stampin’ Up! products to keep the party going!
STEP 5: GET SPOILED AND ENJOY YOUR REWARDS
As a host you can earn free products, get discounts, and order exclusive products (only available for our hosts) with our Stampin’ Rewards program. For example, if your party sales are $200, you’ll have $20 to spend on whatever you’d like! It’s our way of saying thank you!
STEP 6: KEEP CRAFTING
Plan another time to host a party for more fun with friends and free products. Or if you want to enjoy even more benefits, purchase a Starter Kit to sign up as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator—you can even use your Stampin’ Rewards to help purchase your kit.

July Stampin'Up!

Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project
 
Hello friends,

I hope your July is off to a spectacular start! I've been spending time creating with some of the new stamps and papers from the new Annual Catalogue and it's been a blast. There's nothing like new stamps, inks, and paper to spark your creativity.

The popular Bonus Days sale is back so it's the perfect time to check some new goodies off your wish list. For every $60 you spend in July you'll earn a $6 coupon to spend in August. That means fun now and bonus savings, too!

I hope you are inspired to create something fabulous by this month's tutorial. It features an elegant shabby chic style that combines gold heat embossing and the Whitewash technique for an on-trend look that is sure to WOW!

Floral Essence Whitewash Technique


 
Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project
 
Summer is a big time for weddings and this month's tutorial features an on-trend combination of elegant and shabby chic that's perfect for wedding and shower cards.

The rich gold heat embossing and rustic Whitewash technique are gorgeous with the Floral essence stamp set (#149450).

I also love this technique with the popular Good Morning Magnolia stamp set (#149298). I'm excited to see what you create with this technique!

The Floral Essence Bundle (#151055) and Good Morning Magnolia Bundle (#151087) are great options and will help you earn Bonus Days rewards.
 
Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project

Heat Emboss

Rub Embossing Buddy on 3-3/4" x 5" Crumb Cake cardstock. Stamp 3 floral images and leaves with VersaMark. Cover with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. Tap off excess. Heat emboss with Heat Tool. Stamp greeting on 1" x 3-1/2" Whisper White with VersaMark. Heat emboss with Gold.
Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project

Mix Whitewash

Create the Whitewash by mixing 2 drops of Whisper White Craft ink refill and 3-4 drops of water from an Aqua Painter on a Silicone Mat or stamp block. Or squeeze Whisper White Craft ink pad and mix ink and water in lid.
Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project

Whitewash & Dry

Use Aqua Painter to paint Whitewash in the flower petals. Paint neatly at edges but don't worry about staying in individual petals as the embossing resists the ink. Add a second layer of Whitewash if needed. Do not paint leaves. 
Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project

Sponge

Allow to dry or dry carefully with Heat Tool - do not re-melt embossing. Once Whitewash is dry to the touch, ink a Sponge Dauber with Petal Pink and lightly flick ink from the center out. Wipe off excess ink from embossing with a tissue.
Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project

Finish

Score 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Thick Whisper White cardstock at 4-1/4" along 8-1/2" side. Layer on 4" x 5-1/4" Petal Pink cardstock. Tear ends off greeting layer. Add 4" Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon behind greeting. Add to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
