I am on a roll with Happy Thoughts and warm feelings today. This is another fun card sure to brighten someone’s day. I love the cheerful and bright colors featured in this card. Another super simple, yes, you can easily make this card, card! Let your paper do the work. This is the Field and Flowers Designer Series Paper, another pack of 12×12 paper that you can choose as a FREE choice with every $50 or $100 till the end of February. This paper is one of my favorite choices, so bright and fun! The flowers almost jump off the card. Don’t forget to add to the envelope flap too. There are great choices in stamp sets and paper during SAB.

Can you tell I love to stamp and I know you will too if you just give it a try! I also love to send cards to my friends, family and customers! Hint, I happily reward for orders and gifts with orders over $50 but you will get an hand stamped card from me and it won’t be signed, that is my gift to you. You in turn can sign it and send it on to someone you wish! My wish is to send lot’s of Happy Mail. Don’t you all love to get fun mail in the mail not just bills! Happy Mail is so much more fun!

I love the stamp set Happy Thoughts. Another great set with greetings for the outside and inside of cards. These are great sets to consider when starting to stamp. Words are great to build up with because as you can see, your paper can be the art easily!

This is a 4 1/4 x 11″ basic black cut then scored at 5 1/2″ Cut Flirty Flamingo 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ (cut 2)with your paper trimmer also cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ basic white for inside of card, next cut the stripe 4″x5 1/4″ and the floral piece 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ layer this to the stripe piece then to the Flirty Flamingo.
Die cut the label in Flirty Flamingo with the Cut Emboss machine then stamp Happy Birthday in Memento Black. Take the ribbon and wrap around the 3 layers leaving long tails, tie in a bow on the side. Next, place dimensionals on the back of the label and pop that off the card over the tied ribbon. Then use your Stampin Seal and place that on the Basic Black card base. Take your Basic White piece, stamp the inside greeting and place on top of the Flirty Flamingo then mount inside the card. I took a small strip and placed it on the bottom. I like to add color inside the cards too! Use the take your pick tool to place the opal rounds on the card front and using your Stampin Seal on the back flap of the envelope adhere a strip of the DSP and trim around with your paper snips. Trim the edges of your bow also with the snips! Enjoy!

This is another simple card you can easily make in no time flat! I love SAB time and I love to get FREE rewards, it is a great time to start stamping if you are wondering where to start, just dive in! The more you stamp the easier it gets! Trust me, it is fun and I love to make cards. We don’t buy cards in this house! I love it when my kids ask me for cards as they too don’t buy cards! I love to have them on hand when I need them and I love share them with all of you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do making them. I LOVE STAMPIN UP PRODUCTS AND I LOVE PAPER CRAFTING!

-20% off additional orders at least till end of July

-NO RISK-purchase the demonstrator kit and give being a demonstrator or personal shopper for yourself and become a member of the Paper Wishes group a “trial” at least till the end of July. (note I love to spoil these people!)

-NO PRESSURE- It is up to you if you want to place additional orders, why would you not, my personal favorite time of the day is when the UPS truck rolls in, you can share the business with others or just for you. There is never any pressure to do anything at all, especially be crazy like me! I am here to help with whatever your wish my be, crazier than me, just plain crazy or your own best shopper, the choice is yours. I personally love all of it, the crazy, the products, the people and the fun! I know you will too!

-NO PENALTIES-if you meet the $300 quarterly minimum by the end of July, you will remain an active demonstrator, shopper or whatever you wish to be with all the benefits for another quarter and that means the fun Holiday stuff too! If you don’t you just return to the customer level and you keep everything you got in your initial order, (Hint choose the tools-great way to start!) If you make cards at all, it is totally super easy to meet your minimum! Trust me I far exceed that in a quarter without customers (don’t tell Scott) but I have customers so that is a bonus! If your orders increase you move up of a 25% discount and that can increase too but we can talk about that later is you want to learn more.

-NO CATCH- there is ABSOLUTELY no obligation to sell to others, do events or to even purchase again. It is up to you, the choice is yours and the possibilities are endless! A card in the store can be $4-$6 anymore, remember I said I never buy a card when you look at it that way, it is pretty simple to see what I recommend this. Think of all the cards, gift tags, school projects, note cards, thank you cards, gift bags, scrapbook pages etc. You can use these products for some many things!

These are swap cards, as a demo, I am part of a larger group and because I love to make cards and I love to swap I participate, only because I want to in the monthly swaps. This month the theme was Wings and things so this was my creation. I will share the details in another post. I just sent them off and I can’t wait to get back 16 different cards from those that swapped. Not only are you a part of the Paper Wishes team, you are part of a much larger group. The point of this is to show you how much fun you can have being a part of a fun group. We have fun, if you want to and no judging just fun! If you know me you know I was part of another direct sales company for many years, I was stamping long before I joined that company. That company is no longer, what I really love about Stampin Up is the fact that their products are timeless, their products are top quality, they have never lost sight of their mission or their business plan and they are always current with design trends, colors and themes. My only regret is I wish I had done this long ago! I have been a stamper for over 25 years and a demonstrator for 6 plus years. I work full time in transportation, wife and mother of 3. I stamp because I love to craft and be creative. I am busy, if I can find time to make cards I know you guys can too! I can get lost in my paper and stamps and some days I can stamp my stress away! Just sharing a few of my reasons for why I do what I do. You will find you own along the way!
