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.

Stampin Up Hostess Rewards Chart

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.

Rose Wonder from Stampin’ Up!

This week at the Global Design Project we are casing the designer Shawn Olivera.  Shawn makes beautiful cards, you really need to pop over to his blog to see the stuff he creates as you will be blown away.  He used the beautiful Rose Wonder dies to create his card and its our job this week to case his card.  Here is my card made using Rose Wonder.

Rose Wonder from Stampin Up

How did I make this clean and elegant card?
  • Die cut the largest flower twice and layer the die cut to make it thicker.
  • Snip off the leaves to separate them from the main flower.
  • Glue the die cut to whisper white card and coloured the inside relief area with watercolour pencils.
  • Add Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.
  • Score around the edge of the card base using my scoring tool twice to add an embossed frame.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink.
  • Cut the leaves and stick them so they nestled behind the main flower head.
  • Stick the rose and leaves to the card front with dimensionals to give depth and dimension.

Coming Soon In The City from Stampin’ Up!

I have a little something to share today that is coming soon in the new catalogues.  From 1st June we have a brand new annual catalogue and one of the new hostess sets at the back of the catalogue is called In The City and its definitely going to be one of my new faves.

In the City from Stampin Up

It is a really fun set with lots of building, vehicles and greetings that is going to create the most adorable cards.  There are 60, yes sixty stamps in the set and its photopolymer and £14.50.

What is a Hostess Set?

I mentioned its a hostess set but just in case you don’t know what that means…

There are stamp sets at the back of the annual catalogue which are unique and subsidised and not for general sale.  You can choose one of these sets if the sales from your order reach £150 or if you host a party or a private class and the sales from that event are £150.  You can also club together orders from you and your friends and benefit from the hostess rewards.

Be sure to check out the hostess rewards as the most you spend the more you have to spend your hostess rewards on.  You can also purchase any current items with your hostess rewards or a combo of main catalogue items along with a hostess set (which are vastly subsidised).  The In the City set would normally retail at £24 but as a perk its £14.50!

In the City Sampler from Stampin up

I went a little crazy as I had some new home cards to make 🙂  There was a lot of masking but its really easy to stamp and you can choose if you colour the inside of the buildings with the matching stamp.

Come and see what else is coming in the new catalogue by requesting a copy to be posted out to you direct.  My first batch of catalogues left today and will all be arriving by the end of May.

Wood Crate from Stampin’ Up!

This week at the Global Design Project we have been given a theme of Cooking, Baking & Making.  I really wanted to ink up my retired Perfect Mix stamp set one more time before it retires as it was such a firm favourite and an obvious choice. paired it with the brand new coming in June Wood Crate die and made a cute little table favour or gift which hold 3 biscuits wrapped in a cello bag and the new powder pink ribbon – swoon!

I created the greeting using another new stamp set called Label Me Pretty and the matching pretty label punch.  I stamped in early espresso ink and then stamped again in dapper denim and cut around the kitchen word and raised it up with dimensionals  and added an enamel heart.  I stamped the pudding bowl and the oven gloves from Perfect Mix and cut around them to add a little whimsical touch.  Pretty sure it would work just as well with the bowl and gloves but I just couldn’t resist.

So why don’t you join this weeks challenge and make something using the same theme, we love to see what you have made!
