Unique Cards Tax Free products and Hostess Special

These are some pictures of cards I took at the Stampin' Up convention that were a bit unusual and very clever. First is a fun punch card. The duck is made with oval and circle punches. Very cute, I love the inking. On the right is a beautiful card with muted colors and beautiful butterflies. Wouldn't you love to get that card in the mail for a special day!
I also loved the watermelon card, especially the ants hauling off a piece of watermelon. So fun! The tin container on the right is by Monica Weaver, she uses a lot of metal and showed us how to put it through the Big Shot to emboss or cut.

If you would like to stock up on any adhesives or take advantage of the tax-free markers, scissors, pens, pastels, etc please let me know. I’m going to join in with passing on savings and pay the postage for you! Since tax is nearly 10% and shipping is 10% that will save you nearly 20% on your order. Call or email your order to me before the weekend is over!

Stampin' Up has also come up with a great special for the month of August. In addition to the hostess stamp set and $35 in free merchandise a hostess normally gets for a $350 workshop she will get $25 more in free merchandise. That is a total of $60 worth of great products you can choose from the catalog! I think that makes it even more tempting to book a workshop during the month of August!
Workshops are so easy for the hostess. All you do is invite your friends over and provide a little snack for them and I do the rest! I will demonstrate a few techniques and they will make a quick and easy (although absolutely wonderful) card or box they can take home with them. Even if some of your friends aren't as crafty as you are, they will enjoy making a card they can send to someone special. It doesn't have to be a long workshop, I can even do one on your lunch break at work. I can also do a scrapbook class if you prefer.
For tax-free, shipping-free orders this weekend or to book a workshop during the month of August, email me at, I'll be looking for your email!

Can you use roof flashing (thin metal) to run through the Big Shot?
