I was in the mood for something cheery and non-winter!  It’s cold here in WI.  AND I wanted to try out the new Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils!

Stamping Tip:  Using the Watercolor Pencils,  color in as desired and use an Aquapainter or Blender Pen to blend the pencil colors.  On the bird’s breast above I used the Pumpkin Pie with Real Red near the bottom.  I really like how it turned out after blending with the Aquapainter.

The Watercolor Pencils are in the 2017 Occasions Catalog which goes live on January 4th.  You can get the Watercolor Pencils, or anything in the Occasions Catalog, right now if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  Not currently a Demonstrator? It’s easy to sign up!

Purchase the Starter Kit for $99 and fill it with up to $125 worth of Stampin’ Up! products.  Enjoy FREE shipping on the Starter Kit, along with all of the other benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

I realize that 2 weeks before Christmas might not be the right time for you to purchase the Starter Kit.  Think about purchasing the Starter Kit on January 4th.  Then you will have the added benefit of being able to choose any 2 stamp sets, that you want, for FREE!    Offer good during Sale-a-bration January 4th – March 31st.

I have the 2017 Occasions Catalogs and Sale-a-bration Catalogs on hand.  Email me [email protected] to find out how you can get your FREE copy!  

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Stamping!

Today I have some ladies coming over to make cards that will be mailed to members of our church congregation.  Our Card Ministry has been well received by those who receive the cards while they are ill, recovering from surgery, or after a death in the family.

Stampin’ Up! has a mission statement, better known as the Statement of the Heart.

 “To love what we do and share what we love,
as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile
accomplishments . . . in this we make a difference.”

Not only do I have the opportunity to share stamping and making cards with other people, I am able to see the impact those cards have on the people who receive them.  It’s a wonderful life!

Happy Stamping!
Deb
