Stampin' Scrub Available

We have replenished our supplies of Stampin' Scrub (item 102642) and Stampin' Scrub Refill Pads (item 101230) and are happy to announce these products are now available for ordering. Order Here!

As a result of material issues, you may notice a slight difference. After in-house testing, we approved the material change because we found it to be an excellent alternative. The functionality and high-quality standards you come to expect from Stampin' Up! remain the same.

ALSO - the Stampin' Scrub was temporarily unavailable as part of the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit (for those wanting to join Stampin' Up!). Effective today at noon (MT), it will return as a Starter Kit item.

Again, we thank you for your patience throughout this process.

Thursday Challenge#046 Color My World

This weeks challenge used a fabulous color combo. One of the greatest parts of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is all the different ways to get ideas! In February I was able to attend a Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar and this card was one of our make and takes. I just changed the colors for our challenge this week and love how it turned out.

This card uses the Paisley Prints DSP again, when I first saw the challenge for this week, I was bummed because I didn't have any River Rock cardstock left and then I was looking through my designer papers and wow there it was River Rock, YEAH!! I also used champagne mist on the dsp and the bird cage to give it a little more sparkle! I hope you enjoy the card!

Supplies: Cardstock: Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler, Paisley Prints DSP, Whisper White; Ink: Marnia Mist; Accessories: 3/8" Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon, Florettes

Thanks for Stopping!!

Happy Stampin',

Challenge Thursday SSC# 045: Musical Mania: SU! Because I Care

Our Challenge for this week was to take inspiration from the "Musical Singin' In The Rain"!
