Grateful For Blessings

I recently found a new blog that caught my attention: SUO Challenges.  The challenges are pretty general so far, which makes it super easy to play along. The only requirement is to use ONLY Stampin' Up! products. No problem! This time the challenge is to create something using the Big Shot. It can be a card, scrapbook page, a 3-D item, or even something using fabric. As long as the Big Shot was used it qualifies. Fun! I hadn't created a card for Mojo Monday yet and I really liked this week's sketch, so I thought why not combine both? Stop in and say hi over at SUO Challenges and tell 'em Stampingville sent you!

  • The color combo of More Mustard, Cajun Craze, and Night of Navy comes right out of the new Color Coach and I love it!
  • Rather than a stamp set, I used sections from the Bright Blessings jumbo wheel. Several of the jumbo wheels work very well for this technique.
  • Looking for the Big Shot requirement? Check out my faux buttons. With the Buttons #5 Sizzlet, I have four sizes of "buttons" to choose from in any color I want. Talk about convenient!
 Do you have lots of items on your Stampin' Up! wish list? If so, you might want to consider one of our Starter Kits. Our Standard and Digital+ Starter Kits are valued at more than $310, yet the cost is just $175. You can customize your kit with the stamp sets and colors you want and for a limited time, Stampin' Up! will even throw in a gorgeous Greenhouse Gala Craft Tote FREE (a $39.95 value). Even better yet ... all this and NO shipping and handling charges apply. Contact me today for more information on this fabulous offer.
