Thank you card for the Global Design Project Colour Challenge

We have a colour challenge for you this week at the Global Design Project.  I love a colour challenge as it really makes me stretch my creativity and use colours or combinations of colours that I would not normally gravitate towards.

I have made a simple thank you card using the new Background Bits stamp set.  It is a hostess set in the new annual catalogue which launches on Thursday 1st June.

Background Bits Thank you from Stampin Up

You may be thinking that you have to be a hostess and host a party to get Stampin’ Rewards and get any of the subsidised hostess sets for free but you don’t.  Let me explain….

How can I get a Hostess Set?

You simply place an order for £150+.  It can be your own order or an order from a party or event where the group sales are £150+.  Once the sales reach £150 you earn a % of the sales as hostess rewards.

How do I spend Stampin’ Rewards

Our hostess sets are shown on page 220-223 and those sets are subsidised and much cheaper than if they were for sale in the main catalogue.  You can see the price shown beneath the set, its £16 for wood mount and £12 for clear mount but you can see the value is also shared.  So the wood mount set would normally retail at £26 for wood mount!  What a great deal!Background Bits Hostess Set from Stampin Up

That means if your order was £165 you would earn £16.50 in Stampin’ Rewards.  You can use this to spend on any current catalogue items of your choice including the subsidised hostess stamp sets at the back of the catalogue.

If you choose free items to the value of £18 and you only earned £16.50 you can simply pay the difference so its a wonderful chance to stock up on this much loved hostess stamp sets!

Earn extra Stampin’ Rewards in June!

When your order or party total is £300+ you earn AN ADDITIONAL £30 in Stampin’ Rewards on top of the already very generous stampin rewards shown in the chart above.

That means a £300 order would receive £66 in Stampin’ Rewards to spend on free stuff of your choice!

Spend £400 you get £86 Stampin’ Rewards and any item out of the catalogue at HALF PRICE!

So now that I have shared my card using the Background Bits Hostess Set lets see this weeks colour challenge from the Global Design Project and we really hope you join us this week and make your own card or project using these lovely colours.


Time to pop over to see what the rest of the design team have made with the same 3 colours and submit your own project to the weekly challenge.

The new hostess set is not available till 1st June when the new catalogue goes.  I cannot wait to get my hands on new stuff.

If you would like to request your own paper copy of the new catalogue simply click the request a copy image on the right and fill out the contact form and I will pop a copy in the post to you.

Have a great day and pop back on catalogue launch day to see lots of inspiration from the new catalogue.
