Stampin' Up! So Hoppy Together

Back in December, I created a fun card with the Stampin' Up So Hoppy stamp set.  Today I reworked the card with sentiments from the Forever Lovely stamp set and the Meant to Be Stamp Set so I could use the card for Valentines.  The So Hoppy set is a free Sale-A-Bration selection.  What's Sale-A-Bration?  

Sale-A-Bration is a special sale Stampin' Up! holds during Jan - Feb - March, where each $50 or $100 purchase earns you free selections from Sale-A-Bration merchandise from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  The Forever Lovely set and Be Mine Stitched Dies are from the Occasions catalog and the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series paper with the flies used on these cards are from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog  

Add lipstick to your frog from So Hoppy Together Stamp Set

I used a basecard of Granny Apple Green, then a layer of Basic Black.  Then a layer of a print from the Tea Room Specialty designer series paper that I remembered had flies or bees as part of its background -- perfect for my little green froggie.        

Valentine card using the Stampin' Up! So Hoppy Together Stamp Set

I die cut a stitched Whisper White rectangle using the new set of Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (bottom of page 28 in the new Occasions catalog).  Then I set up my Stamparatus with the little bugs images, the frog image and the sentiment stamp, all on a single Stamparatus plate so that I could stamp all three at one time in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.   Then I used the light and dark Granny Apple Green Blends alcohol-based markers to color the little bugs and the frog.  I used Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to add eyelashes to the frog, and I used a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker to add lips to the frog.

The hearts were die cut out of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets (149712), a free selection from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, using the multi-hearts die from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies (148527).

February is almost here.  Show yourself some love by becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and stop paying full price for your Stampin' Up! purchases.  Sign up now, during Sale-A-Bration, is the best time to sign up for Stampin' Up! because you'll receive THE BEST SIGN UP BONUS I have ever seen during my 12+ years as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  

If you've thought about joining Stampin' Up! as either a hobby demonstrator -just for the 20% discount on your orders-- or if you've always wanted a side hustle to earn a little extra money while having a ball with your crafty friends,  you can join for $99 and pick $175 -- YES $175-- worth of merchandise from either the Occasions or the annual Stampin' Up! catalogs as your starter kit.  

Sign up this week, so you'll have time to order your starter kit, and spread the love by making handmade Valentines for those you love with your new Stampin' Up! starter kit goodies.  Then, share the sign-up information with your crafty friends who might like to order $175 worth of Stampin' Up! products for only $99, too.

Put together your wishlist of $175 worth of products--personalized with just what YOU want.  Choose ANY Stampin' Up! products to fill your kit.  Host sets and Sale-A-Bration gifts are excluded.

If you join in January, you'll receive a 20% discount on additional demonstrator purchases through July 31 2019.  That means you'll be able to purchase from the new 2019-2020 annual catalog including the early catalog purchase period, only available to demonstrator in May, before the June catalog is released.

You'll have until July to reach your first $300 quarterly sales minimum and keep your demonstrator discount for July through September quarter, which means you'll purchase from the Holiday catalog at your demonstrator discount, too!    

This gives you time to build your hobby supplies with your 20% demonstrator discount, if you choose to be a hobby demonstrator,  with no obligation to host workshops or sell products.  Or, this gives you time to grow your business if you decide to turn your hobby into a business.  If you decide to drop, there's never a penalty.  And you can join again, later.
