3/15 Do What You Love
I still remember the day I signed my demonstrator agreement with Stampin'Up. My hubby was like, "Well, it's about time!" and my kids were excited for me simply because I was excited. I didn't know what exactly it was going to mean for me in the future, but I figured, "Well, if I don't like it, I can always quit."
You may have noticed . . . I haven't quit! lol! In fact, I love and appreciate this business even more since becoming a demonstrator in July of 2007. I am doing what I love. Are you?
How long have you been debating about whether or not you should become a demo? I'm embarrassed to say that I debated it for FOUR years before I submitted my agreement to Stampin'Up. Good grief. If only I would have known what I know now! And you know how I finally KNEW? I just did it!! So simple, isn't it! lol! To make it even simpler for you, Stampin'Up announced that you can get your starter kit for 15% off through the end of March along with an extra stamp set of your choice as part of our Sale-a-bration Celebration. (That's kind of funny! lol!) Clap, clap, clap . . .what a good deal that is!
But now . . . there has been another announcement!! Stampin'Up is offering you the opportunity to get your kit in three monthly payments and still get the Sale-a-bration benefits! Bravo, bravo! So for $56.34 you get your kit in March. Then you make two more payments in April and May for $56.33 each.
This three payment promo goes into April . . . but of course in April you will pay the regular price for the kit which will make your payments $10 higher each month. Please see the Three Easy Payments for the Starter Kit Form. Both options of a March and an April start date are detailed out for you. Please feel free to E-Mail me if you would like me to help you get started Doing What You Love!
Now . . . onto the card!
Isn't it pretty? This card uses a technique called Gel Pen Resist that I read about on Janine Tinklenberg's blog HERE. My stamp clubs created this card last month along with a technique panel. For some reason, I never posted this . . . got busy I guess! Anyway, I love the Asian feel this card has. The medallion is created with the Scallop Edge Punch centered on each edge of a 2 3/4" panel of Chocolate Chip. I actually made two medallions to create this card. One of which is used with the scallop edge and the other one where I cut the scallop edge out leaving me with just the square frame. To highlight the gel pen resist, I used a stipple brush instead of a sponge on my flower panel. Then, I just erased the gel pen with a white eraser to reveal the white flower underneath.

Stamps: Sanded, Sweet Stems, Wow Flowers

Ink: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip
