Put a Little Bloom in Your Heart! & See Ya Soon?

The very first day that Stampin' Up! allowed demonstrators to pre-order items from the Occasions Catalog (which "opens" tomorrow!!!!!), I ordered the new Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper.  It just seemed to have my name written on it.  Know what I mean?

During Saturday's class here in the studio, I showed some of the upcoming new stamp sets and the glimmer paper ... and happened to have this heart cut with the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Dies in a bag of trial cuts.  This glimmer paper heart hadn't found its home on a card yet.  

So, on Sunday afternoon I took a peek at the Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoaststampers ... and this card was on its way.  By the way ... Congrats to Kathy LeDonne on being the first Featured Stamper of 2016, FS465!  Here's Kathy's card that inspired mine.  

That fabby banner stamp and sentiment are both part of the Bloomin' Love stamp set, available starting tomorrow in the Occasions Catalog, and the matching banner die is from the new Large Numbers Framelits!  (I've already got another card that uses that same banner die with a completely different set ... you'll see it this week also.)  

How did I adhere the vellum circle?  With Glue Dots placed directly behind some of the larger elements on the beautiful heart die piece.   The same applies to adhering the glimmer paper heart to the vellum.  Easy-peasy!

Smiley from Millan.Net I'm presenting a booth and teaching classes at the upcoming 
Heirloom's Grapevine Rubber Stamp 'n Paper Arts Festival this coming weekend in Grapevine, TX ... so it's time to get back to labeling, cutting, and prepping!  And, I'll be having a show special for all of you who drop by to chat, make 'n take, sign up for upcoming classes, and check out lots of samples!  And yes, 
Sale-A-Bration benefits will apply to all orders of $50+ too ...
... ... including new team member kits!

Glitzy Congratulations!

What do you do when someone reaches for a goal, right before your very eyes ... and reaches it?

Get out your 'Bravo' stamp set and make a card to celebrate the accomplishment!  
Not only is this stamp set full of "just the right thing to say" sentiments, but they also express your happy feelings in a big, bold way!  

Case in point:

I've kept it simple, but added some fun pizzazz with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  Just a couple of Dimensionals to lift up the largest star, and my favorite new glue to adhere the rest of the sprinkling stars ... the brand new Fine Tip Glue Pen from the upcoming Holiday Catalog!  Soon, m'friends ... September 1 is almost here, and this delightful new super-fine point glue with a very special applicator can be yours!  (I already honestly adore this glue and it's no-clogging tiny little applicator tip!)

Local Notes:  My first 2015 Christmas Stamp-A-Stack begins this Saturday, with Replay Day coming up in early September.  Although it's too late to RSVP for Saturday, there's a bit of room for Tuesday, September 8 if weekdays work for you.  Please contact me if you'd like to jump in on this one, but please RSVP asap and I'll send the complete invitation to you via email.  Hope to see you soon!
